Falun Gong

Probably best known for the free newspaper The Epoch Times and the ubiquitous posters for the Shen Yun dance company, Falun Gong or Falun Dafa is a religious group begun in China and now based in New York led by Li Hongzhi, revered as a diety within the cult. As with many religious groups, they experience oppression and exclusion in China. In recent years they have become known for their far-right political views, support of QAnon, and vocal support for extremist political figures.
