  • Puppets of the 610 Office: How the Chinese Court System Persecutes Falun Gong

  • A Practitioner's Son Dying from a Brain Tumour, the 610 Office Continues to Persecute Him

    The 610 Office (an organisation of special agents just for persecuting Falun Gong) in Shanghai has been arresting Falun Gong practitioners and taking them to brainwashing centres.

  • Marking June 10th - China's 610 Office - Policing the Chinese Spirit

    What is the 610 Office? How and why did it come to exist? Why is it carrying out measures ostensibly under the purview of the Ministry of Public Security?

At its core, the 610 Office is a plainclothes Chinese Communist Party (CCP)-based extra-ministerial security force focused on suppressing the Falun Gong spiritual group.

Ms. Li was brutally tortured in detention because she refused to renounce her belief in Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance. Traumatised by the abuse, she suffered a mental collapse.
