Welcome to the First Annual FoFG Cartoon Competition!
This is an excellent opportunity for graphic artists and enthusiasts to put their talents to use for a great cause: to help the world understand and end a genocide happening right now in China.
Falun Gong is an ancient Chinese meditation practice of mind and body that follows the principles of truthfulness, compassion, and forbearance.
However, in China, practitioners who have broken no laws are subject to kidnapping by the police, imprisonment, forced labor, torture, and even live organ harvesting.
These crimes against humanity are committed by the Chinese Communist Party (CCP), and have continued for 18 years. Using propaganda and business ties, the CCP has tried to silence world governments from criticizing this horrendous genocide.
The international community of human rights advocates have been taking action to bring an end to the persecution, but we need more help in spreading the word.
To learn more, please browse Friends of Falun Gong or Falun Dafa Info Center.
