To End This Persecution
Since 1999, human rights abuses perpetrated by China’s ruling Chinese Communist Party (CCP) have reached horrific proportions, with the main focus being the persecution of Falun Gong. China’s communist regime has used tremendous resources to conduct a campaign of brainwashing, torture, murder, and the brutal practice of forced organ harvesting. The CCP exports its persecution overseas, using its influence abroad to control the narrative, pressure Western society with economic and diplomatic leverage, and manipulate the media.
A cornerstone of humanity expressed throughout the world is the freedom to practice one’s beliefs. The CCP’s persecution of Falun Gong is an assault on this fundamental right, and the methods and extent of its persecution are an affront to human dignity and morality.
Truth On Tour was created by artists to respond to this crisis, using music and art to be the voice for Falun Gong practitioners persecuted in China.
Truth on Tour artists are spread throughout the world, from different backgrounds and social strata. An urgency to expose and help end this human rights tragedy binds us together. Additionally, the practice of Falun Gong (also called Falun Dafa) and its universal principles of Truth, Compassion, and Forbearance, have greatly impacted each of us, becoming a foundation and inspiration for our art.
Truth On Tour’s first project is the release of our compilation CD Truth On Tour [Volume #1].

Human beings, by nature, are rational, kind-hearted and compassionate. Once exposed to the truth, we clearly see this injustice for what it is. We ask you to support Truth On Tour’s mission, and be the voice for the Falun Gong practitioners in China and around the world. Help put an end to this persecution.
Our Songs Tell Their Story
From Australia, pop artist Belle’s ‘Be The Voice’ tells us it’s time we stand for the persecuted Falun Gong: “These beautiful people they’ve suffered so long | Tortured for practicing Falun Gong | It’s time for the world, it’s time for the world to stand up”
DC Rap artists Rise Ascend and Direction’s ‘Behind the Wall’ exposes the CCP’s coverup of atrocities, including the horrific practice of forced organ harvesting: “The red evil regime’s | Murders they try to hide | Daughters, mothers and wives | Sons, fathers and husbands | They kill them and sell their organs like it is nothing”
From Missouri, father and daughter folk artists Randall and Sara Effner’s song ‘Plum Blossoms in the Snow’ tells the story of practitioner Jane Dai and her daughter Fadu. Jane’s husband was murdered in China in 2001 after appealing to the CCP to stop the persecution of Falun Gong: “A refugee from China, with her daughter in her arms | Steadfast in days so bleak and nights so long | Pays tribute to her husband and tells how he came to harm | Murdered ’cause he practiced Falun Gong.”
LA artist/producer Kevin Dippold’s rock song ‘Rally The World’ tells us: “This is our time | This is our fight”, as we are “Unified, On One Side, Unstoppable!”
Guyana’s Malcolm Wilson, with his reggae-influenced style, reminds us of the power to implement change in his uplifting song ‘Righteous Generation’: “We the positive generation | Stand for all nations | There’s no trials or tribulations … Give us the power to face the day”
Canadian artist Jesse Laine’s song ‘Truth Is Tall’ challenges the CCP’s lies: “Truth is tall, stayed and unchanged | By lies, misdeeds, deceit and defame | So hear the call, feed the hope, see the blame | And free Falun Gong, free us all from this reign”
Truth On Tour has come together with one voice, and one mission: to expose and end this persecution.
