I can only say, that i have used a Chinese Tor Exit Node on the occasion
of the anniversary of the Tiananmen massacre and the RSF messages
about the blocking of and sites like, and I wasn't able to access
these sites, but, indeed without success with a search for
"Falung Gong". I don't believe, that all Chinese Tor Nodes are
governmental honeypots, but that their requests are blocked anywhere
inside the "great firewall" of China.
