Disturbing undercover video shot by a survivor's husband reveals brutal treatment of Falun Gong followers in a Chinese labour camp where 'many have died from torture'
WARNING: CONTAINS GRAPHIC VIDEOS AND IMAGES Yifei Wang and her husband Gordon have shared what they claim to be video from the Jilin women's labor camp in China where Yifei's sister Kefei died after alleged persecution for practicing Falun Gong.

Now, a media company called Swoop Films is working to bring the persecution of Falun Gong worshippers in China to light in a documentary titled, 'Finding Courage' (above).

Peter Shaw, 61, has been called up twice this season to play for the Corryong Demons senior side in the tiny town on the NSW-Victoria border with only 14 players available some weeks. He usually hides in the forward pocket as his team loses by more than 100 points every week and enjoys helping out young players new to the sport.
