An esteemed French military school released a report on the Chinese Communists Party’s influence on international governments. Former CCP leader Jiang Zemin viewed Falun Gong as a threat, and thus the 610 Office was launched. This agency operates both inside and outside of China. Its actions have included paying Argentinian media outlets to publish an article critical of Falun Gong. Agents also sent humiliating emails in the name of Falun Gong practitioners. On campus, the Chinese Students and Scholar Association has tried to control Chinese students studying overseas, while the Confucius Institute has attempted to influence college administrations internationally. Finally, Beijing employs censorship and control over the overseas Chinese media.
