A series of provincial and town-level Chinese Communist Party (CCP) documents as well as speeches from CCP Central Committee officials detail the CCP’s priority and strategy of maligning, silencing, and suppressing Falun Gong outside China, especially the United States.

“Treat the countries and regions with serious ‘Falun Gong’ activities such as the United States as the main battlefield,” commands one directive. “Tightly focus on … the headquarter bases and foreign political figures, carefully organize the strategy to strike and divide them.”

The “headquarter” is an apparent reference to the Dragon Springs campus in upstate New York where Falun Gong practitioners have built a Buddhist-style temple and traditional Chinese culture education center.
