[] A groundbreaking public exhibition "Persecution Meets Principle" in Chicago downtown's Federal Plaza recreated the conditions of Chinese labor camps and torture chambers. The "Persecution Meets Principle" torture exhibit was part of the events to build public understanding of the cruel persecution against Falun Gong in China that led to the lawsuit in Chicago federal court against former Chinese leader Jiang Zemin. The torture techniques enacted in the torture exhibit are but a tip of the iceberg of an appalling number of torture techniques used daily against Falun Gong practitioners in China. In more than ten countries around the world, Jiang Zemin has been charged with torture, genocide and crimes against humanity in the persecution of Falun Gong practitioners in China. On May 27, 2004, a new round of court debate took place in the 7th Circuit Court of Appeals in Chicago, Illinois.

The re-enactment scenarios elicit murmurs of shock and shaking heads from passersby.
