  • Euphemistically Referred to as the "House of Love" by Corrupt Authorities, Nanjing Brainwashing Centre Continues to Cause Much Harm

    The "House of Love" (a private brainwashing centre) is still doing its utmost to poison people against Falun Gong. With false compassion, this centre controls a group of so-called volunteers and collaborators, who are being used to brainwash and persecute Falun Gong practitioners. So-called "experts," such as Tang Guofang, the education head of the Jiangsu Province Forced Labour Bureau, and Lu Yangchun from Nanjing Culture Bureau have brainwashed the collaborators, who are former practitioners "transformed" [forcibly renounce Falun Gong] into "consultants" at the "House of Love."
