The persecution of theFalun Gong movement by the Chinese state should be a source of concern to members of minority religions everywhere. This week, Falun Gong members attempted to stage protests calling for their right to practice, timed to coincide with Chinese New Year's Eve. This led to thousands of arrests and brutal beatings by the police.

The remarkable Center for Studies on New Religions (CESNUR) website maintains a Falun Gong Updates page that provides a useful resource for those keeping up with the latest developments in this tragedy.
