On the 23rd of January 2006, UK Falun Gong practitioners held a peaceful protest at the London Chinese Embassy. The protest was intended to expose and oppose the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) holding “The Same Song” theme show in North America in an effort to extend its ideology and persecution of Falun Gong overseas.

An originally saccharine Chinese song with a children's chorus and the emotional rendition of popular singers, and the namesake of a musical performance organized by the CCTV, "The Same Song" has been used by the CCP as a major tool in psychologically persecuting, torturing and brainwashing Falun Gong practitioners. Behind this seemingly benign song lies the suffering, blood and tears of millions of Falun Gong practitioners being persecuted in Mainland China.
The Chinese Communist Party's persecution of Falun Gong is not only brutal, but also deceitful. Every Falun Gong practitioner who has been detained in a prison, labour camp, or brainwashing centre has deeply painful memories about "The Same Song." It was synonymous with "transformation" (brainwashing) and is the humiliating reminder of a Falun Gong practitioner's reluctant acceptance of the brainwashing after tremendous physical and mental torture.
Whenever the song was heard in a prison cell, everyone knew that a Falun Gong practitioner could no longer stand the brutal beating, endless physical and verbal abuse, and other torture, and had written a statement promising to give up the practice. Many of the practitioners would cry after succumbing to the pressure against their conscience, while the police and their helpers would sing "The Same Song" to celebrate the success of the brainwashing.
UK Falun Gong practitioner Li Heping was a direct victim of “The Same Song”. In August 2001 for writing a letter to the National Security Bureau telling the truth about Falun Gong, Li was illegally sent to a labour camp by the CCP for two years for participating in Falun Gong activities. In the labour camp, in order to make Li give up practising Falun Gong and believing in “Truthfulness, Compassion and Tolerance”, the CCP tortured him not only physically but also psychologically to the verge of insanity.

According to Li Heping, in the labour camp the police would play “The Same Song” to him when he was tortured. To this day, upon hearing “The Same Song”, he relives painful experiences along with the mental anguish that is associated with the brainwashing music.
It is Li Heping’s sincere wish that democratic societies can see through the evil CCP’s ploy to use modern culture as a tool for brainwashing and human rights persecution. Utilizing “The Same Song” music, the CCP intends to extend its brainwashing and psychological persecution of Falun Gong practitioners to Western democratic societies. Li calls for preventing the CCP from extending its ideology and its persecution of Falun Gong practitioners overseas.
