    To all Dafa disciples around the world and in mainland China, a happy Mid-Autumn Festival!

    A Will That Ebbs Not
    (in Song Dynasty poetic form)

    Surpassing time and space,
    Fa-rectification dashes forward
    Massive is the challenge,
    but your will is firm
    Unbridled are the wicked,
    yet you keep your bearings
    Purging evil as if but whisking dust away

    My disciples,
    walk straight the path of Dafa
    May your radiance grace the human world,
    as you transcend the Three Realms
    Disciples of Fa,
    be diligent, with a will that ebbs not
    The countless years of hardship were all for this time

    Capriccio on a Mid-Autumn Night

    Tracing back from the Dharma-ending Period to the Primordial Chaos,
    >From the ancient emperor to the great Tang Dynasty
    to the prosperous period of Emperor Kanghsi and Qianlong,
    >From common people, warriors to generals, prime ministers and to monks
    Having been through all kinds of difficulties and tribulations,
    Having experienced all kinds of bitterness, insults, and great honor,
    Our steps have been clear and steadfast
    Our vows are ancient but sincere.
    When the Fa is validated, its ancient history will display
    Gracious Master has guided us on the path towards home
    Abandoning human attachments, we are able to brave the tides and waves.
    The 5000-year great play almost concludes
    Have we fulfilled our ancient pledge?

    When to meet Master?
    The vicious cliques
    Poison beings with deceit
    The dark demons raise the batons high.
    Erect our palms and clear away the evil spirits
    Our righteous thoughts are powerful
    Frightening thunder sounds
    The earth quakes
    Gods' whip waves.
    Cleansing the evil spirit,
    The human world will be free of disaster
    The principle says the evil will never prevail
    Master has the power to reverse the hopeless situation
    See the lotus blossoming
    Listen to the drums resounding
    Sing joyfully to welcome the triumphant returning.

    News and Activities from Around the World


    Hu Jintao Leaves New York, Arrives in Vancouver; Practitioners Continue Calling for an End to the Persecution (Photos)

    Minghhui/Clearwisdom correspondent from Vancouver and Cai Ju, correspondent in New York

    (Clearwisdom.net) On the afternoon of September 16, 2005, Hu Jintao, head of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP), arrived in Vancouver, Canada, his last stop on his North America trip. Falun Gong practitioners appealed around the Westin Hotel where Hu stayed, to call on him to stop the persecution of Falun Gong. The practitioners held banners worded, "Bring to Justice Jiang Zemin, Luo Gan, Liu Jing, and Zhou Yingkang", "Bring to Justice the Ruthless Police and Others Who Persecute Falun Gong."

    Hu Jintao's Motorcade Passed by the Practitioners Holding Banners

    To welcome Hu, the CCP hired many Chinese students and tried to have Hu avoid seeing the Falun Gong practitioners' banners. However, practitioners holding banners stood around the hotel. A little past 3 p.m., Hu's motorcade entered the hotel via the rear entrance to avoid seeing practitioners near the front entrance. Some practitioners waited near the rear entrance and displayed their banners to Hu's motorcade.

    Passers-by Support Falun Gong and Oppose the Persecution

    A passer-by saw the practitioners' appealing and came forward to help by holding a poster on the sidewalk. He said to the correspondent that he agreed with Falun Gong's principles of "Truth, Compassion, Tolerance." He said, "I think the persecution in China is wrong. It is damaging the world. I oppose persecution and repression. When I see anything unjust, I will stand up."

    Some passers-by told practitioners, "You will win. You will win. The CCP is the source of terrorism across the world."

    Pro-CCP Persons Attempted to Create Conflict and Tore the Practitioners' Banners

    High Resolution Picture
    Banner worded, "Stop the persecution of Falun Gong" torn by pro-CCP persons

    In front of the hotel where Hu stayed, some pro-CCP persons tore practitioners' banners.

    Practitioner Ms. Fei said, "Everyone can express his views. But these pro-CCP persons saw that I held a banner worded 'Stop the persecution of Falun Gong' and grabbed it. Later they tore the banner. They lost control and appeared irrational. I said, 'You express your view, I express my view. We are in Canada. Everyone has freedom of expression.' They did not listen but just grabbed my banner."

    A Canadian said, "This is Canada. Everyone has Freedom of Expression."

    A Canadian gentleman, who safeguarded justice for the practitioners said, "I think the lady has her right to express her view. Those pro-CCP persons holding red flags stabbed her with the flags and tore the lady's banner." The Canadian gentleman said, "This is Canada. One cannot be attacked for expressing his view."

    Practitioner Frank from Vancouver commented on the incident, "A practitioner held a banner worded 'Stop the persecution of Falun Gong.' Many Chinese people holding red flags blocked the view of the banner with the flags and hit her with the flags. Some dragged her. A Canadian passer-by saw the incident and came forward to safeguard the banner and the lady because she was being attacked. Many pro-CCP persons grabbed banners, tore them up and threw them on ground. They even abused the practitioners. The Canadian person spoke up in support of Falun Gong. I said to the pro-CCP persons, 'What you have done today can only damage China's image.'"

    Police Officer in Charge: "Pro-CCP persons attempt to create conflict and frame Falun Gong."

    A police officer in charge of the Vancouver police said that he saw the whole incident and knew who was at fault. It was those pro-CCP persons attempting to create an incident and frame Falun Gong. He hoped that practitioners would not become involved.

    Falun Gong spokesperson: "We hope that Hu will awaken in time and stop the persecution."

    Falun Gong spokesperson Ying Li said, "Today we come to mainly call on Hu Jintao to bring to justice those principal perpetrators of the persecution - Jiang Zemin, Luo Gan, Liu Jing and Zhou Yongkang. We also want him to bring to justice the ruthless police and others who persecute Falun Gong. The third thing that we want to say to Hu Jintao is this: 'The time that Heaven and the people are giving to you is limited.' The persecution was initiated by Jiang Zemin, but it is still ongoing."

    Ying Li said, "We hope Hu Jintao will awake in time to stop the persecution of Falun Gong. Therefore, we would like to have him hear and see our message through the means of our banners and our peaceful appeal. Tomorrow we will continue our peaceful protest."

    Hu Jintao in New York: Practitioners Get Their Message to Hu at Close Proximity on Several Occasions

    Minghui/Clearwisdom correspondent Cai Ju reported from New York that from September 13, when Hu arrived in New York, to September 16, when he left New York, practitioners were able to get their message across to Hu at close proximity on several occasions.

    Hu's Arrival at the Hotel

    High Resolution Picture
    Practitioners appealing on the sidewalk in front of the hotel

    On the day of his arrival at New York, Hu's motorcade entered the hotel via the north entrance to avoid seeing practitioners appealing on Park Avenue, even though there was a Chinese welcome group hired to show up there. Before entering, some people accompanying the visitors from Mainland China were arranged to wave Chinese flags to welcome Hu. Several practitioners were on site as well and spoke loudly toward the motorcade, "Falun Dafa is Great!" "Hu Jintao, the time that Heaven and the people give to you is limited" and "Stop the persecution of Falun Gong."

    Exiting and Entering the Hotel

    At 8:30 a.m. on September 14, Hu Jintao left the hotel for the United Nations. His motorcade came across practitioners. Mr. Wang, a practitioner on site at the time, said, "A practitioner first held up a banner worded, 'Hu Jintao, the Time that Heaven and the People Give to You is Limited.' Then two other banners beside this one were also raised. Almost at the same time, Hu's motorcade drove by these banners. The loud voice of 'Falun Dafa is great' was heard everywhere. The scene took place within one or two minutes, just like it was pre-arranged."

    Grand parade held on the evening of September 14 in midtown Manhattan

    In the evening, practitioners came across Hu's motorcade returning to the hotel as they walked back to Park Avenue from the UN Square on Third Avenue, at the end of the grand parade. The practitioners spoke loudly towards the motorcade, "Falun Dafa is great!" "'Hu Jintao, the time that Heaven and the people give to you is limited," and, "Stop the persecution of Falun Gong."

    On the morning of September 15, Hu Jintao walked out of the hotel towards his car with two security guards on both sides. At that moment, a practitioner named Lisa walked near the rear entrance of the hotel with a banner worded, "Falun Dafa is great" in hand. She told the correspondent, "When I looked up, I saw a man looking so familiar. Then I realized he was Hu Jintao. Immediately I looked him in the eye and said loudly, 'Hu Jintao, the time that Heaven and the people give to you is limited.' Practitioners nearby came forward right away. We spoke loudly again and again, saying, 'Falun Dafa is great!' 'Hu Jintao, the time that Heaven and people give to you is limited,' and 'Stop the persecution of Falun Gong,' until his motorcade left. The window of his car was open then."

    In the afternoon, Hu's motorcade came across more practitioners standing at an intersection.

    Leaving New York

    At a little past 9 a.m., a dozen cars of the Chinese delegates' motorcade came out of the Waldorf-Astoria Hotel. Someone said that Hu Jintao left with the motorcade, but Falun Gong practitioners appealing in New York during the last few days did not leave. At 10:40 a.m., some practitioners saw Hu Jintao shake hands with some Chinese people and then get into his car. The motorcade left in a moment. The practitioners informed others in front of the hotel. When the motorcade drove by the front of the hotel, practitioners hurried there from all directions. Dozens of practitioners holding banners stood on the sidewalk beside Hu's motorcade. They spoke loudly, "Falun Dafa is great," "Hu Jintao, the time that Heaven and the people give to you is limited," and "Stop the persecution of Falun Gong." Then the front windows of the car slowly closed.

    It was thought that the motorcade would go by 49th Street to 50th Street to avoid seeing practitioners. Some practitioners swiftly went to the 50th Street intersection from 48th Street and held large banners. They called out loudly again, "Falun Dafa is great!" "Stop the persecution of Falun Gong!" "Bring to justice Jiang Zemin, Luo Gan, Liu Jing, and Zhou Yongkang,," "Bring to justice the ruthless police and others who persecute Falun Gong," and, "Hu Jintao, the time that Heaven and the people give to you is limited." Some practitioners held banners on Park Avenue to wait for the motorcade.

    The motorcade stayed about 5 minutes in front of the hotel and left amidst the loud voices of the practitioners.

    Meeting Hu at the Airport


    Practitioners' banners along the road to the airport

    Practitioners had waited since morning near the entrance to the airport from the highway. They stood near the bus station and held dozens of large banners worded, "Falun Dafa is Great," "Stop the Persecution of Falun Gong," "Bring to Justice Jiang Zemin, Luo Gan, Liu Jing, and Zhou Yongkang," "Bring to Justice the Ruthless Police and Others Who Persecute Falun Gong," and "Hu Jintao, the Time That Heaven and the People Give to You Is Limited."

    A little past 11 a.m., Hu's motorcade arrived and passed by the practitioners' banners and loud appeals. The banners were only a few steps away from the motorcade.

    The organizers of the activity said, "Falun Gong practitioners' tireless efforts intended to have Hu Jintao know the facts of Falun Gong, to help him make a wise choice, stop the persecution and choose a bright future for himself and the Chinese people."


    Falun Dafa Association of South Africa Established (Photo)

    (Clearwisdom.net) In August 2005, the South African Falun Dafa Association was formally established after approved by the South African Government.

    Falun Gong practitioners set up practice sites in some large cities in South Africa, including Johannesburg, Cape Town, and Durban.

    South Africa is a country of diverse races and cultures. Many people do not yet know Falun Dafa. Because of practitioners continuously spreading Dafa and their diligent truth-clarification, more and more people have come to know Falun Gong and have started to learn the practice. They are attracted by the great benefits of this ancient practice from China.


    Japan: Promoting Falun Dafa at the 74th Seto City Pottery Festival (Photos)

    (Clearwisdom.net) On September 10-11, 2005, Falun Dafa practitioners from Aichi County participated in the 74th Pottery Festival in Seto City. During the festival, practitioners held an exhibit to clarify the truth and promote Dafa to visitors.

    A banner in Japanese: The pride of China, Falun Gong-Qigong, Free Instruction

    Seto is located to the northeast of Nagoya City, the capital of Aichi County. It has a population about 130,000 and is the most famous pottery manufacturing city, with a 1,300-year history of making pottery. In the Japanese language, pottery is called "Setomoto." Seto City has a sister city in China, Jingdezhen City, in Jiangxi Province. It was said that the pottery technique was introduced from China to Korea and then from Korea to Japan. The small hills surrounding the city have clay that is suitable for making pottery.

    Seto has two pottery festivals annually, one in spring and one in autumn. The festivals are the largest in the country. It was reported that over 390,000 people visited this pottery festival.

    The Falun Gong exhibition was on the market street. At the entrance of the exhibition, a banner in Japanese language stated "The pride of China, Falun Gong-Qigong, Free Instruction."

    The practitioners hung a "Falun Dafa" banner and displayed Dafa books in Japanese, Chinese and English, exercise teaching videotapes, and truth-clarification materials. A TV played Master's exercise instruction program, and practitioners gave a free instruction class nearby.

    Some visitors bought the book or video tapes and asked where they could learn the exercises. They said that they had looked at the Falun Dafa website and knew that it was not as propagandized by the Chinese Communist Party. Some immediately wanted to learn the exercises at the exhibition site.

    When a practitioner was buying pottery in the market, he met the mayor of Seto City and some local officials. He greeted the mayor and told him that Falun Gong practitioners volunteered at the festival. He gave a truth-clarification flyer and a pretty bookmark to the mayor and the mayor happily accepted it.

    During the two days of the festival, many people heard about Dafa and learned the truth. We believe these planted seeds will soon sprout, flower and produce fruit.


    Germany: Practitioners Invited to Participate in Sachsen Day Festivities (Photos)

    (Clearwisdom.net) On September 3 and 4, 2005, the annual Sachsen Day Festivities were held in Weisswasser. Invited by the sponsor, Falun Gong practitioners from across Germany came to take part in the event. They made use of this opportunity to clarify the facts about Falun Gong so as to let more people learn about the practice and the persecution in China.

    On the first Sunday of September every year, Sachsen Day is celebrated in different cities in a grand manner. The number of participants may be as many as several thousand people. Participants included more than a hundred associations and groups, and major media outlets from various places in Germany also attended. This year's sponsoring city was Weisswasser, near the border between Germany and Poland. Besides the Falun Gong practitioners who were invited, there were also over 400 artists from Poland who came to participate.

    On the performance stage on September 3, the Falun Gong practitioners gave dance and waist drum performances and also introduced and demonstrated the five sets of Falun Gong exercises. While distributing leaflets during the intermission, practitioners met and had a short conversation with the local city Mayor and the Minister for the Sachsen area.

    At our information stand, people were surprised to hear about the cruel persecution of Falun Gong practitioners in China. Others paused to watch Falun Gong practitioners performing the fifth Falun Gong exercise, a peaceful meditation. A great number of people expressed an interest to learn Falun Gong, and some signed their names on the petition form calling for the immediate release of Jiang Renzheng, a practitioner who was deported to China from Germany and is currently in a labor camp in China.

    On September 4, about three hundred vehicles and nearly six thousand people participated in the grand parade. The Falun Gong practitioners' beautifully decorated vehicle, the vigorous waist-drummers, beautiful dancing and the dignified and joyous large flags attracted the viewers' enthusiastic applause as they asked for Falun Gong informational materials.

    It was very noisy while waiting for the start of parade, and the practitioners began practicing the first four sets of exercises. Visitors - adults and children alike - were immediately attracted and followed along with the practitioners in doing the exercises.

    Taiwan: Fa Study and Experience Sharing during a Hurricane (Photos)

    (Clearwisdom.net) Practitioners from five counties and cities gathered at Peasants Union Ranch in Yaipu Village, Taizhong County to study the Fa and share experiences from September 10 to September 11, 2005.


    Fa study in a big group

    Experience sharing in a large group

    The day of experience sharing happened to be a day that there was a hurricane, but the practitioners' righteous thoughts weren't deterred. Close to 500 practitioners gathered to study the Fa and to share experiences. The solemn and holy scene was very moving. After a short rain, the sky became clear. The air was refreshing and cool.

    An elderly lady said she used to have a disease called "flying-snake" rash. It disappeared after she started practicing Falun Gong. Falun Gong's health effects are miraculous!

    Another practitioner said he had saved money on food and other expenses and bought an air ticket to go to Hong Kong to "clarify the truth'. His wish is to let people in China know that it is wrong for the Chinese government to persecute Falun Gong practitioners, who cultivate Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance. The lies and slanders against Falun Gong were all government propaganda. The Chinese Communist Party (CCP) is an evil party. It will perish soon. This practitioner has persuaded people to withdraw from the CCP.

    A practitioner from Fujian Province said that what was said in the Nine Commentaries on the Communist Party was absolutely true. As a matter of fact, most Chinese hate the CCP but dare not voice it. The Nine Commentaries has exposed the nature of the evil party and has told what is in the bottom of people's hearts.


    Young Falun Gong practitioners study the Fa and share experiences

    During the experience sharing time, practitioners shared their thoughts and talked about what they had learned from cultivation. Both old and new practitioners learned from the conference. They encouraged each other to do the three things well, as Teacher has asked us to do. Everyone was unwilling to leave the conference and looked forward to the next opportunity to see each other.


    France: People in the City of Nancy Tell Practitioners, "Keep Going And Persevere!" (Photos)

    (Clearwisdom.net) Located in the central area of the province of Lorraine and covering a vast expanse with a population of 350,000, the city of Nancy is a financial and administrative center in a beautiful scenic area. On September 8 and 9, 2005, practitioners from Switzerland and France went there to hold two days of activities to promote Falun Gong and to tell people about the human rights abuses against the practice in China.

    Explaining the facts about Falun Gong to passers-by

    Throughout the activities, many passers-by stopped to view the poster display boards. Upon hearing that such a cruel persecution is still taking place in the 21st century, they were astonished and talked to practitioners one after another, wanting to know more of the facts. Practitioners patiently answered their queries and told them that Falun Gong is a qigong practice of the Buddha School and that since it was made public in 1992, many practitioners have gained tremendous benefits both physically and spiritually. Falun Gong practitioners are from all walks of life in society.

    Because the number of practitioners outnumbered the membership of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP), the former head of the CCP, out of jealousy, initiated this inhuman persecution against the practitioners in 1999. To date, nearly three thousand Falun Gong practitioners have had their lives taken in this persecution. However, this persecution against the belief of "Truthfulness, Compassion, Forbearance" has aroused grave concerns among people worldwide. More and more people have come to learn the magnificence of Falun Gong and more and more people have participated in this cultivation practice. In fact, Falun Gong is practiced by people in more than seventy countries around the world.

    After hearing the facts, many passers-by came forward to encourage practitioners with phrases such as, "Keep going and persevere!" Some took home leaflets and Video-CDs, saying that they would take a closer look at them later, while others specifically asked for more copies of the petition forms in order to distribute them to people they know.

    A woman who has been to China three times said that China's splendid scenery has left wonderful memories in her heart. However, she didn't know that this horrendous persecution is taking place there at present. After having a long talk with practitioners, she signed the petition.

    A councilor of a standing committee in Lorraine Province happened to pass by and spotted the activities. After viewing the truth-clarification display boards, he was moved so deeply that he left his business card and asked practitioners to directly send him more information about the persecution.

    An elderly Chinese man stated that he had understood the facts about the Chinese regime's persecution and campaign of slander against Falun Gong. He angrily asked, "Why hasn't such a brutal persecution ended yet?" He suggested that practitioners display truth-clarification poster boards in the universities as there are a lot of students from China and they really need to know more about the facts of the persecution. Otherwise, they will be deceived by lies fabricated by the Chinese Communist regime. Before leaving, he picked up many copies of leaflets in Chinese, saying that he would give them to the students he knew.

    Kulmbach, Germany: "What Good Things Are You Distributing Today?" (Photo)

    (Clearwisdom.net) On the evening of September 7, 2005, the residents of Kulmbach, a small town in Southern Germany, came to the square in the city center to wait for the president's campaign speech and to learn about the persecution of Falun Gong that is taking place in China.

    A woman who personally suffered human rights abuses at the hands of the Chinese Communist Party for practicing Falun Gong came to the square to distribute flyers. Most of the people solemnly received the flyers when they heard that it was about human rights issues in China.

    Some stopped to read the flyer carefully. Some said after reading, "Very good. Such things should be exposed to the public!" Several others took the initiative to ask for a flyer. Many people noticed the girl from far away and approached her asking, "What good things are you distributing today?"

    Taiwan: "Truth-Compassion-Forbearance International Art Show" Moves Students and Teachers (Photos)

    (Clearwisdom.net) The "Truth-Compassion-Forbearance International Art Show" came to Jianguo National High School in Beigang Township, Taiwan from September 6 to September 10, 2005. After the visitors learned the stories behind the paintings, their hearts were moved.

    The "International Art Show" is composed of artwork by 15 artists from different countries who are all Falun Gong practitioners. The artists used their brushes to display the beautiful and high spiritual level one attains after cultivation practice and the truth about the Chinese Communist Party's (CCP's) persecution of Falun Gong. The show has traveled to Washington, DC, Manhattan, New York City, San Francisco, Canada, Korea, Indonesia and has been exhibited in over twenty large cities. This time, it came to Beigang Township of Yunlin County, Taiwan.

    The principal of Jianguo High School, Mr. Lu Fusen, gave the show a lot of support. In order for more parents to have an opportunity to visit the art show, he rescheduled the new students' parents meeting to a day during the exhibition.

    The organizer said that the purpose of the exhibition was to have more people understand the persecution of Falun Gong in Mainland China. The Falun Gong practitioners are brutally persecuted, but from the paintings it is clear that the practitioners have no anger or resentment. All you can find are practitioner's peacefulness, compassion, persistence and rationally in calling for world support to end the persecution.

    The director of Beigang Township visited the exhibition. He carefully looked at each painting and listened to the introductions.

    After visiting the art show, Mr. Cai Ziming, a reporter from the News Network, said that the exhibition could help more people understand how the CCP persecutes Falun Gong. He said he would tell his friends to recognize the true nature of the Communist Party.

    An English teacher said that it was hard to understand a political party that could persecute its own people like this, especially a group of people who believe in "Truth, Compassion, Forbearance."

    Students felt that the artworks about tortures were too bloody and violent to look at it. The guides told them the stories behind each painting. Through the pictures, the students recognized the evil nature of the persecution.

    Vancouver Sun: Hu lands in B.C. to cheers and jeers [Excerpts]
    Top politicians and business leaders meet and greet the Chinese president

    Miro Cernetig and Joanne Lee-Young, with a file from Derrick Penner

    Vancouver Sun

    Saturday, September 17, 2005

    China's President Hu Jintao arrived in Vancouver Friday, surrounded by the tight security bubble that has isolated him from all but a select few during his 10-day state visit to Canada and the U.S.

    Hu was greeted at Vancouver International Airport by political bigwigs including Senator Jack Austin, Industry Minister David Emerson and Premier Gordon Campbell, as well as a group of about 80 Chinese community leaders.

    He was then escorted downtown by RCMP and Vancouver police and through the back door of the Westin Bayshore Hotel, allowing him to avoid the sight of Falun Gong and other anti-Communist protesters.

    But he also missed out on a warm welcome from about 500 well-wishers from Vancouver's Chinese community, who showed up waving Chinese flags and wearing red paper tags that labelled them as "greeters." Many of them were organized and bused to the hotel by various business, community and social groups.

    [...]

    Protesters with giant banners and angry words --some of whom drove around in a truck festooned with the slogan "80 Million Died Under Chinese Communist Tyranny" -- mixed with prancing lion-dancers and drum-beaters.

    [...]

    As has been the case throughout Hu's 10-day tour, a veil of secrecy was placed over most of the Chinese leader's meetings with business and political leaders, including a private meeting with Premier Campbell.

    The heavily scripted arrival meant that, in the end, most of the greeters never got a chance to see the man they were waiting for.

    Hu was whisked into the hotel where he spent the afternoon in a private meeting with 300 select leaders of the Chinese community. Milling around the hotel's lower ballroom, they waited for a turn at an official photo opportunity with Hu, who sat on a chair as people lined up on a podium behind him.

     

    [...]

    At night, a private banquet was hosted at the Pan Pacific Hotel by Austin and Emerson. The guest list of about 120 included Chinese delegates as well as Vancouver business leaders such as billionaire entrepreneur Jimmy Pattison, Harmony Airways owner David T.K. Ho and Jim Shepherd, CEO of Canfor Corp., Canada's biggest lumber producer.

    Austin opened the event by talking about Canada-China relations rising to a "strategic partnership."

    Campbell emphasized the large number of Chinese-Canadians living in Vancouver and stressed that as the closest Canadian province to China, B.C. is a gateway for trade.

    He said that Vancouver and Beijing have agreed to cooperate as each city prepares to host the Olympic Games. Earlier in the day, the premier had given Hu a 2010 Vancouver Olympics pin.

    Hu spoke briefly, acknowledging the beauty of the city and saying that China was interested in several main trade sectors here: resource development, environmental protection and technology.

    [...]

    As has been the case throughout Hu's visit, tight security was obvious. In every room that Hu visited, police arrived beforehand with a bomb-sniffing dog and checked the underside of every single chair to ensure no weapons or explosives had been secreted inside.

    Police also kept protesters from getting anywhere close to Hu. When one man carrying an anti-Communist placard refused to leave the road, he was quickly arrested, handcuffed and taken away. Police also ordered the crowd outside the Westin Bayshore Hotel to move to the sidewalk when his "greeters" began hitting Falun Gong protesters with their Chinese flags.

    Following the dinner, Emerson said in an interview that Hu was aware of the protesters outside.

    "He doesn't feel good about it, it was clear, but I explained to him that in Canada, freedom of expression is one of the foundations of our society and he shouldn't treat [protests] as an indication that Canadian society, or British Columbia society, is not friendly towards China," Emerson said.

    Emerson added that the discussion was a round about way of addressing the human rights issue.

    "In Canada [protesters] have that right, and nobody thinks twice about it.

    AP: Protest greets Chinese leader in Canada

    Fri, Sep. 16, 2005

    Associated Press

    VANCOUVER, British Columbia - Chinese President Hu Jintao returned to Canada

    on Friday to meet with political and business leaders, but he was greeted by hundreds of demonstrators protesting the communist government's human rights record.

    Hu's visit comes just as China edged out Canada for the first time as the biggest exporter of goods to the United States, according to newly released Canadian statistics.

    In July, Canada sold goods worth $20.6 billion south of the border, compared with $21.3 billion sold by China. China is Canada's second-largest trading partner, after the United States.

    Hu was to attend a private dinner with western Canada business leaders and trade officials Friday.

    The protesters gathered at the airport and lined the streets outside Hu's hotel, slamming China's Communist Party government for jailing pro-democracy, Christian and Tibetan activists.

    Li Yu, 41, a Falun Gong [practitioner] (1) and software engineer, said she traveled from Sacramento, Calif., to join the protest.

    "People are gradually realizing all the evil the (Communist) Party has done," Li said. "We don't want any more blood, any more fighting, any more violence."

    Thousands of supporters of Falun Gong, a spiritual form of meditation dubbed an [slanderous term omitted] by Beijing, have been jailed since Hu's precedessor, Jiang Zemin, banned the movement.

    Hu began his North American visit in Canada on Sept. 8, meeting Martin in Ottawa. The two pledged to forge ahead with bilateral trade and investment, particularly in energy, natural resources, nuclear power and technology.

    Last year, trade with Canada accounted for just 1.3 percent of China's total trade while Chinese trade made up 2.6 percent of Canada's total exports and imports.

    He meets Martin again Saturday, before returning to Beijing on Sunday.

    (1) Editor's note: The original article referred to Ms. Li as a member of Falun Gong. However, Falun Gong is not a membership organization and maintains no membership list.

    AAP reported on September 15, "The gathering of world leaders for the United Nations Summit this week proved an irresistible stage for thousands of protesters crowding a New York City plaza to draw attention to their causes."

    The report stated, "Hundreds of Falun Gong supporters, who have camped out seemingly everywhere in Manhattan for the past year, gathered to protest China's oppression against them. China banned the spiritual Falun Gong movement in 1999."

    In addition, the report stated, "On Thursday thousands of protesters in blue shirts rallied against China's Communist Party, waving signs and shouting amid thundering drums. They want the party dismantled."

    Open Letter to Hu Jintao from Chinese People in the US Calls for Release of Relatives Imprisoned for Practicing Falun Gong

    (Clearwisdom.net) When Chinese President Hu Jintao visited the United States, thirty Chinese people in the US, including Ms. Yeong-Ching Foo, the fiancée of American citizen Charles Li, jointly wrote an open letter to Hu Jintao requesting the immediate release of their relatives in China who are imprisoned by the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) for practicing Falun Gong.

    The letter states that the CCP has been persecuting Falun Gong for six years, and to date, 2,799 people are verified to have been persecuted to death, including seniors over 70 years old and babies as young as 8 months. More than 100,000 people have been imprisoned in labor camps. Thousands have been sent to mental hospitals. When will this tragedy that shouldn't have happened at all come to an end?

    During the past six years, Falun Gong practitioners all over the world have worked hard to call for conscience, courage, rationality and wisdom from the world's people. They have appealed to many governments, international organizations and kind-hearted people to help stop the genocide and persecution occurring in China. More and more governments and people have come to support their efforts. More and more people are now stepping forward and take action against the persecution along with them. In China, more and more people with numbed minds have found their conscience. More and more policemen have put down their electric batons and have chosen conscience and justice.

    Justice will certainly defeat evil. "If the good is not rewarded, and the bad not punished, then the cosmos must have harbored selfishness." Each and every debt owed by the evil will definitely be paid back. The World Organization to Investigate the Persecution of Falun Gong (WOIPFG) and the Global Coalition to Bring Jiang to Justice have initiated investigations focusing on the prime culprits of the persecution and wicked policemen, one after another. More than 100 associations in Germany, Belgium, Spain, France, South Korea, Taiwan, Canada, the United States, the United Kingdom and other regions and countries have filed lawsuits against former president Jiang Zemin, who initiated the persecution, and the heads of the 610 Office, including Luo Gan and Li Lanqing, charging them with crimes against humanity, genocide, murder and torture.

    The letter warns Hu Jintao that the CCP regime is a political criminal group similar to the mafia, formed by the collusion of corrupt officials and profiteers. This group has caused social injustices in China to accumulate to the point that they can never possibly be resolved. Any attempt on Hu's part to superficially improve the CCP would simply perpetuate all the crimes of the CCP, tie himself to the tattered and torn sinking wreck of the CCP, and to inevitably suffer complete destruction along with the CCP.

    The letter also requested that Hu Jintao decisively and immediately end Jiang Zemin's brutal persecution of Falun Gong, redress Falun Gong, immediately release all their relatives in Mainland China who are illegally imprisoned, and bring to justice the prime culprits and instigators of the evil suppression, especially Jiang Zemin, Luo Gan, Liu Jing and Zhou Yongkang.

    The co-signers of the letter include Yeong-Ching Foo, Huang Hongjian, Zheng Wenli, Wei Jikun, Meng Xiangji, Huang Wanqing, Qiu Qingqing, Zhang Shuangying, Liang Xiaofeng, Wang Xiaodan, He Haiying, Wang Yiqun, Fu Fucheng, Lu Zhonghua, Zhang Xiaoyan, Yu Ye, Yang Jingduan, Zhang Lizhi, Yuan Feng, Yuan Ke, Zhao Meifang, Wang Chunying, Zeng Ming, Liang Zheng, Hu Zhihua, Zang Li, and Zhang Helen.

    Facts of the Persecution


    Heaven's Wrath at the Torture Death of Falun Dafa Practitioner Mr. Yuan Qingjiang (Photos)

    (Clearwisdom.net) The death of Falun Gong practitioner Mr. Yuan ignited heaven's fury! He was tortured to death on the evening of July 23, 2005, at the Daqing Prison. On July 25, an earthquake measuring 5.1 on the Richter scale hit Daqing City. Even people living in Harbin City, 180 km [112 miles] from the quake's epicenter felt the tremors. The ground shook for more than 10 minutes. This earthquake destroyed about 1,000 homes and was followed by powerful aftershocks.

    Mr. Yuan was born on February 14, 1965, and had lived at No. 10-1-3, Building No. 108, the Anbu Section, 10th Division of the 9th Committee, Xiangfang District in Harbin City. He worked as a budget analyst at the Fourth Division of the No. 1 Construction Company of Heilongjiang Province.

    Mr. Yuan started practicing Falun Dafa in June 1997. After that, he strictly conducted himself according to the principle of Truth, Compassion, Forbearance. He was well liked among his colleagues and neighbors. He was so proficient at his job that many of his colleagues asked him for help with difficult budget calculation problems. After the persecution of Dafa began on July 20, 1999, Mr. Yuan exercised his rights as a Chinese citizen and clarified the truth about Dafa in a peaceful and rational manner to related government agencies. In response, officials from the local Party Committee, the police department and the police station monitored, followed and threatened him.

    1. Brutal torture at the Changlinzi Forced Labor Camp in Harbin City

    In February 2000, Mr. Yuan went to Beijing to appeal for the right to practice Falun Gong. When he got there, he learned that the government had blocked all channels of appeal and that other Falun Gong practitioners had been arrested for appealing. He walked up the Tiananmen Tower and unfurled a banner that read, "Falun Dafa is great." He was arrested, held at Tiananmen Police Department and later transferred to the Xiangfang District Police Department in Harbin City. Mr. Yuan was sentenced to one year of forced labor and was held at the Changlinzi Forced Labor Camp in Harbin City. His sentence was later extended by six months.

    Because Mr. Yuan never cooperated with the perpetrators, he was one of the main targets of persecution at the Changlinzi Forced Labor Camp. He used every opportunity to clarify the truth about Dafa and to expose the persecution. Shi Changjing, head of the labor camp and a head guard insulted Mr. Yuan at almost every Falun Gong-attacking meeting. Wu Jining, head of the Administration Section ordered inmates Sun and Mo Ou, "Take real good care of him, as long as the wounds are not visible on the outside!" They beat Mr. Yuan until he couldn't straighten his back and could not climb into his bed.

    In December 2000, Shi Changjing ordered Dafa practitioners to read articles that slandered Falun Dafa. Mr. Yuan firmly refused. The perpetrators put him in solitary confinement for ten days. The solitary confinement cells are six cages made of steel bars, each measuring 1.3 m [4.3 ft] in length, 0.5 m [1.6 ft] in width and 1.5 m [5 ft] in height. The practitioner can neither stand straight nor lie down inside the cage. While locked in the cage in the bone-chilling winter when the temperature outside was below -30 degrees C [-86 F], the perpetrators did not give him any bedding or quilt. They even opened the windows to increase the circulation and lower the temperature inside the room. The walls were caked with frost and ice. In the heat of summer, when the temperature exceeded 30 C [86 F], the perpetrators closed the windows. They handcuffed some practitioners to the steel bars in the cage to increase their suffering.

    They transferred Mr. Yuan several times and exhausted every means of torture on him. They also sent him to Division 1 for brainwashing. There they forced him to watch and listen to videos and cassettes filled with lies and slanderous materials about Falun Gong. Two inmates monitored Mr. Yuan. When he fell asleep, they flicked his eyelids with their fingers. They took turns talking to him, trying to force him to write a repentance statement.

    They also sent Mr. Yuan to Division 2, where they made him work on two hosiery looms from 5:00 a.m. until 8:30 p.m. every day. After work, Falun Gong practitioners are forced to stand against a wall until midnight. Except for the three mealtimes, the practitioners are forced to stand for 17 hours a day, including when they are at work. They are forced to stand within the perimeter of a square tile; if they accidentally move out of it, they are beaten. Sometimes they are also forced to stand in a torture position called "flying the airplane." (In this torture, practitioners are forced to stand with their legs apart, their backs bent, their heads pointing toward the ground and their arms raised up. Their backs, arms and legs tire very soon after this torture begins.) They often tortured Mr. Yuan this way for half a day at a time. He was also made to sleep on his side without turning on his back or switching sides. The two inmates slept next to him and beat him whenever he didn't follow their orders. After all methods failed to "reform" him, the perpetrators sent Mr. Yuan to Division 3 and separated him from other Dafa practitioners. For nine months they didn't allow his family to visit him.

    On July 3, 2001, practitioner Mr. Kong Xiaohai (or Kong Deyi) held a hunger strike at the Changlinzi Forced Labor Camp to protest the persecution. He asked for unconditional release, but died from a brutal force-feeding. Practitioner Mr. Ma Yongqian was held past his term. He appealed, so he was detained in a solitary confinement cage. More than 40 practitioners including Mr. Yuan held a group hunger strike and asked the labor camp to "abolish the use of torture, unconditionally release all Dafa practitioners, restore Dafa's good reputation and restore Teacher's reputation." Up until July 20, nearly 70 practitioners joined the hunger strike, which lasted more than two months. About 130 practitioners were held at the labor camp at that time. Work groups from the city and provincial judicial departments were sent to the labor camp. The labor camp's logistics staff placed those practitioners who were on a hunger strike under strict control; they extended these practitioners' terms and detained them in solitary confinement cages. They also searched for the organizer(s) of the hunger strike and planned to send them to prison, in an attempt to destroy the unity among practitioners and intimidate them.

    The perpetrators' force-feeding methods are extremely cruel. Ma, the head of the clinic, inserts a very hard tube in the practitioner's nose down to the stomach. He inserts it and then pulls it out so quickly that the practitioner suffers unbearable pain. He continues to insert the tube, even if blood runs out of the practitioners' nose. The perpetrators dip the feeding tube in a large basin as a token gesture to wash off the blood and gastric secretions on the tube; then they insert it into the next practitioner's nose. The practitioners often cough and vomit violently during this tortue. After a while their esophagus becomes so swollen that the tube cannot enter their stomach. The piercing pain that accompanies each feeding haunts the practitioners for months and even years after the ordeal has ended. Mr. Yuan underwent such inhumane treatment. Many practitioners would have died were it not for Teacher's help and the mighty power of Dafa.

    The perpetrators exhausted their tactics and the practitioners continued with the hunger strike. In the end, the labor camp authorities agreed to all of the practitioners' conditions: remove the solitary confinement cages; repeal the "strict control system" and the "two-on-one system" [two inmates monitor one practitioner], unconditionally release all practitioners held beyond their term, improve the quality of the food, allow medical parole for practitioners with serious illnesses, and forward the practitioners' appeals to the related government departments.

    Seven practitioners including Mr. Yuan were unconditionally released. Mr. Yuan left the labor camp on August 3, 2001.

    2. How the family was persecuted

    The CCP officials did not just persecute Mr. Yuan. They also persecuted his family. Mr. Yuan was arrested for unfurling a banner. After he was held in Beijing for a few days, officers from Anbu Police Station in Xiangfang District took him to the Anbu Police Station. Several months later, they sent him to the Changlinzi Forced Labor Camp. In the winter of 2000, after he was detained for about nine months, his family finally learned of his whereabouts and visited him at the labor camp. After Mr. Yuan's second arrest, Zhou Liang, an officer from the Anbu Police Station demanded that Mr. Yuan's family pay him 5,000 yuan for picking Mr. Yuan up in Beijing. His family didn't have 5,000 yuan, so Zhou Liang asked them, "How much do you have?" Mr. Yuan's family thought they would release him after they handed over the money, so they pooled 3,000 yuan and gave it to Zhou Liang. Later, they learned that Zhou Liang picked up a few people in Beijing, but only demanded money from Mr. Yuan's family. After Zhou got the money, he didn't release Mr. Yuan!


    Photo 3: Receipt of 3,000 Yuan extorted from the family

    On June 12, 2001, after Mr. Yuan was sentenced to forced labor, the Anbu Police Station authorities cancelled his household registration. They claimed it was because Mr. Yuan had been sent to forced labor, although the truth was that he had already been held at a labor camp for 16 months. This occurred actually four months past the end of his term. On August 3, 2001, Mr. Yuan was released from the labor camp. The Anbu Police Station authorities wrote on his household registration that he moved back from the Changlinzi Forced Labor Camp on April 10, 2002. An officer from the Anbu Police Station in charge of household registration once told Mr. Yuan's family, "I was one of those people that went to your home to arrest Mr. Yuan."


    Photo 4: A copy of the household registration

    Photo 5: A copy of the household registration

    No existing Chinese law states that a citizen's household registration must be cancelled during the time he or she is held at a labor camp. The police made life more difficult for Mr. Yuan's family by abusing their power.

    Mr. Yuan's nine-year-old daughter had been born without ears, but she could tell different sounds when they bounced off her inner ear. Because Mr. Yuan's household registration was cancelled, his wife had to make a difficult decision when the school checked the students' household registration. If her daughter turned in her family's registration book, the teacher and classmates would find out that the young girl's father was sent to a forced labor and would discriminate against her. It was not possible to not show the registration book because it was school policy. Mr. Yuan's daughter was an outstanding student and she earned awards at school. Because of her father's status, however, her education and career would be affected in the years to come.

    3. Arrest and persecution at the Harbin Prison

    At 8:30 p.m. on March 7, 2003, during the time of the Party Congress, Mr. Yuan was making truth clarification materials. He was followed and arrested at home. In the evening, three police officers, one named Wang Lixing, broke into his home and beat him in front of his 66-year-old mother-in-law and nine-year-old daughter. His wife was at work. Mr. Yuan cried for help, and to let people in the whole building know that the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) was persecuting innocent people.

    Mr. Yuan's mother-in-law begged the perpetrators, "Please don't hit him! Why are you hitting him?" His daughter stood outside her bedroom and watched in shock and disbelief as the three police officers ruthlessly beat her father.

    Mr. Yuan was wearing only a sweatshirt and sweatpants at the time. Harbin City in March is very cold, and it was snowing outside. The police dragged Mr. Yuan toward the door; they allowed him to put on a coat and thick pants only after his mother-in-law repeatedly pleaded with them. They dragged him downstairs and pushed him into a car, barefoot. His mother-in-law followed downstairs and handed Mr. Yuan's shoes to him.

    The police ransacked Mr. Yuan's home three times after arresting him. His wife returned home the next day after receiving a phone call. Seeing the mess of what used to be their home, both mother and daughter were devastated. Mr. Yuan's daughter fell sick and slept for a whole week. Whenever she heard a knock on the door she would say to her mother, "Mom, the police are here." The night raid traumatized her. She did not expect that evening to be the last time she would ever see her father.

    Mr. Yuan's family later learned that the Party secretary from the Anbu Administration Committee had been following Mr. Yuan for a while before the arrest.

    Personnel from the Xiangfang Police Department and from the Anbu Police Station in Harbin City together planned the arrest. Wang Shengli was the head of the National Security Section at the Xiangfang Police Department. His phone number is 86-451-55651465, and the head of the Anbu Police Station can be reached at 86-451-55131112. Their justification for Mr. Yuan's arrest was, "He wanted to go overseas but couldn't obtain a visa." They charged Mr. Yuan with "[attempting to] defect to a foreign country" and "disrupting social order."

    The police arrested Mr. Yuan on March 7, 2003. His family received the Notice to Arrestee's Family or Work Unit on June 5, 2003 (Photo 6). Mr. Yuan was first held at the Xiangfang Detention Center and was later sentenced to four years in prison.


    Photo 6: Notice to Arrestee's Family or Work Unit

    Mr. Yuan was savagely tortured during his incarceration at the Harbin Prison because he refused to cooperate with the efforts to "reform" him. Guard Zhang Jiushan and inmates Guan Dejun and Wang Shijun forced him to stand for 18 days and 17 nights without sleep. They beat him until he developed pleurisy (the buildup of fluid in his chest). He lost control of his limbs and he lost consciousness. The prison authorities didn't allow his family to visit with him, yet they charged his family 200 yuan for a Meeting Permit. The permit is shown in Photo 7, and the receipt for 200 yuan is shown in Photo 8.

    Perpetrators from the Harbin Prison phoned Mr. Yuan's family and asked for 1,500 yuan to cover his medical expenses. His family asked to meet with Mr. Yuan. They were told they could not meet with him but that he would not receive any medical treatment until the money was received. Mr. Yuan's family pooled 1,500 yuan and gave it to the prison authorities.

    4. Head of 610 Office: "It's not a big deal to torture a few Falun Gong practitioners to death"

    In July 2004, perpetrators at the Harbin Prison beat Dafa practitioner Wang Dayuan to death. Fearing public exposure, the perpetrators transferred 30 practitioners including Mr. Yuan to the Hongweixing Prison in Daqing to divert attention from the death. Mr. Yuan was held at Ward 6. On July 8, 2004, the 30 practitioners drafted a lawsuit against the perpetrators at Harbin Prison (http://www.clearwisdom.net/emh/articles/2004/8/3/50985p.html)

    For a long time, Mr. Yuan's family was not aware that he had been transferred to the Hongweixing Prison. Several days before May 1, 2005, the prison authorities wrote a letter to Mr. Yuan's family and told them that he was holding a hunger strike. They told his family to persuade him to eat.

    His family later learned that Jiang Shuchen, deputy head of the Hongweixing Prison and Guo Chuntang, head of the 610 Office escalated the persecution of Falun Gong after attending a conference in Xian City. They force-fed hunger-striking practitioners with corn porridge every two to three days. Guo Chuntang said at a Falun Gong-attacking meeting, "Here at the prison, it's not a big deal to torture a few Falun Gong practitioners to death. There are no consequences whatsoever." To end the persecution, a dozen practitioners including Mr. Yuan went on a hunger strike before May 1, 2005. They were sent to solitary confinement and were tortured in metal chairs.

    Between May 30 and June 1, Dong Menghuan, head of Ward 6 and the deputy ward head ordered inmates to tie Mr. Yuan up for three days. Dong Menghuan personally beat him until he vomited blood and his arms and legs were disabled from overly tight ropes. He developed liver cirrhosis and had tremendous fluid buildup in his stomach. His buttocks also swelled to an inordinate size. The rest of his body was skin and bones. Because all channels of appeal were blocked, Mr. Yuan held another hunger strike to protest the persecution.

    One day, the prison authorities phoned Mr. Yuan's wife Ms. Dong Liping and told her that he had been diagnosed with a contagious disease, and it would cost 10,000 yuan to treat him. Ms. Dong did not have a job and told them that she could not give them 10,000 yuan. She confronted the perpetrators, "He was healthy when he was home. How did he catch a contagious disease at the prison?" The perpetrators couldn't answer.

    On June 12, Jiang Shuchen, deputy head of the Hongweixing Prison phoned Ms. Dong and said, "We'll consider medical parole for your husband since he is in critical condition." On June 28, officers from the Reform Division of the Hongweixing Prison went to Ms. Dong and asked, "Mr. Yuan is in poor health; are you going to take him home? If you don't, you have to sign a document and go through a procedure to let us treat him, and you have to agree not to give us trouble if he dies during treatment." Mr. Dong said, "I can't sign it. He was completely healthy going into the prison. If something happens to him, I'll sue you, even if I have to borrow money and sell my house."

    5. The death of an innocent person, Heaven unleashes its fury

    On June 29, Mr. Yuan's wife went to the prison and asked the authorities, "Why is he sick? Why don't you give him quality medical treatment?"

    The prison authorities said, "Mr. Yuan wrote a statement saying, 'I have no known conditions, and the prison authority is freed of any responsibility should anything happen to me...'" They showed the statement to Ms. Dong, pointing to a signature, claiming it was Mr. Yuan's. Ms. Dong took one look at the signature and realized it was forged. Mr. Yuan's signature is large and the one on the statement was small. The characters were also different from Mr. Yuan's handwriting. She pointed it out immediately.

    Ms. Dong was allowed to see her husband. She did not expect this to be the last time she would see her husband alive. The prison authorities agreed to release Mr. Yuan on medical parole and said it would take 20 days to process. Ms. Dong Liping said to her husband, "Don't worry. I'll come and pick you up. Everything will be fine." Mr. Yuan was happy to see his wife and he was in good spirits. However, he could not bend his legs and had to drag them when he was walking.

    During a meeting with his sister, Mr. Yuan told her that he was having terrible migraines; his neck and the back of his head hurt so terribly he had not been able to sleep for days. Mr. Yuan's sister thought there was something wrong with Mr. Yuan's head, and she repeatedly told the head of the prison hospital, "You have to give my brother a physical examination." Jiang Shuchen, the deputy prison head promised, "No problem, I'll take him to a hospital tomorrow." Mr. Yuan was taken to the No. 2 Hospital in Daqing City on July 15 for a CT scan on his head and an ultrasound on his stomach. He was diagnosed with metastasis of encephalic invasion, tubercular meningitis, tuberculosis of the liver, bilateral systemic lupus erythematosis, tuberculosis pleurisy, ascites, and tuberculosis of the epididymis. The doctor recommended hospitalization.

    The prison authorities refused to pay for medical treatment and took Mr. Yuan back to the prison hospital that same day. The doctor at the prison hospital suggested to Prison Director Jiang Shuchen several times that Mr. Yuan should be treated immediately at the No. 2 Hospital in Daqing City, or he would die. The prison authorities again refused to pay for medical treatment.

    During this period, Ms. Dong repeatedly inquired about the medical parole procedure, but the prison authorities gave various evasive excuses.

    On the evening of July 18, the prison authorities phoned Mr. Yuan's family and said, "Yuan Qingjiang is in critical condition. You should hurry and get this document stamped at the police department." They also said, "We'll send you the required document by express mail so you can get it overnight; then ask your local police to sign it."

    On July 19, Ms. Dong took the document to the Anbu Police Department and asked officer Wang Lixing to sign it. Wang Lixing said, "You have to show me the diagnosis. How do I know if you are telling the truth?" Ms. Dong said, "This was sent by the Hongweixing Prison. Right here is the prison phone number. You can call them and find out." Wang Lixing called the prison and asked for the original document, and the prison agreed to send it the next day. Daqing City is only 180 km [112 miles] from Harbin City, yet they waited another day, despite the urgency.

    Between July 18 and July 20 Mr. Yuan's condition worsened. He was bedridden and didn't eat for three days.

    Early in the morning on July 20, officers from Hongweixing Prison rushed to the Anbu Police Department and were in a hurry to get the document stamped. They received all the stamps within one hour, although they originally said it would take 20 days to get all the documents stamped. They took the document back to the prison, but they didn't release Mr. Yuan and they didn't ask Mr. Yuan's family to pick him up.

    At 5:00 p.m. on July 20, Mr. Yuan suddenly went into a coma. His teeth were clenched, his face black and blue, one of his pupils was dilated and the other one shrunk. The doctor on duty asked the prison authorities for an immediate transfer to a hospital. He asked Dong Menghuan, head of Ward 6, to send Mr. Yuan to the prison hospital. He warned that death was possible if Mr. Yuan was not given immediate medical attention. Dong Menghuan answered, "We don't have that kind of funding."

    On July 21 and July 22, Mr. Yuan regained consciousness and was able to eat. He was incontinent. During these two days, the prison doctor again asked Jiang Shuchen for approval to transfer Mr. Yuan to an outside hospital, but Jiang Shuchen again refused saying, "No one is going to pay for it."

    On the evening of July 23, the prison authorities phoned Mr. Yuan's family and told them that he passed away at 7:20 p.m. that day. Mr. Yuan's family went to the Hongweixing Prison on July 25 and inquired about the cause of death and funeral arrangements.

    Below is a conversation between Mr. Yuan's family and the prison authorities:

    Prison Authorities (P.A.): On July 23, the prison doctor reported that Mr. Yuan's condition had worsened and he had impaired judgment. At 9:30 a.m., the doctor on duty again asked the head doctor at the prison hospital and the head of prison to transfer Mr. Yuan to an outside hospital. They granted approval and Mr. Yuan was transferred from Division 6 to No. 4 Hospital in Daqing City at 10:30 a.m. The No. 4 Hospital refused to accept Mr. Yuan because tuberculosis is contagious and said he should be sent to the No. 2 Hospital that specializes in contagious diseases. Mr. Yuan was sent back to the prison hospital at noon, at which time his condition declined drastically. He became incontinent and lapsed into a coma. One pupil had dilated and the other one constricted. The prison doctor again asked the head of the prison hospital, the head of the prison and the head of Ward 6 and received permission to transfer Mr. Yuan to the No. 2 Hospital at approximately 3:30 p.m. (Later, the prison authority changed this time to 4 p.m.)

    Mr. Yuan's Family: Why didn't you send him directly to the No. 2 Hospital?

    P.A.: We thought he was doing ok. at the time.

    When Mr. Yuan's family asked Jiang Jinwen, the chief physician at the No. 2 Hospital about Mr. Yuan's condition, Jiang Jinwen said, "One of his pupils was dilated when he was brought in; he was in a deep coma and could not be resuscitated. We didn't do anything to revive him; and the paperwork was done on July 25."

    When Mr. Yuan's family confronted the prison authorities, Dong Menghuan, the head of Ward 6, denied that the hospital didn't do anything to revive Mr. Yuan. He said, "We gave him an IV infusion and kept him in a single room. We also sent four inmates to take care of his needs."

    The next day, Mr. Yuan's sister went to doctor Jiang Jinwen and asked to see the medical records. Jiang Jinwen said, "The earthquake in Daqing City shook me up; I can't remember anything now." What kind of pressure forced Jiang Jinwen to conceal the truth?

    The death of Mr. Yuan unleashed heaven's fury. Mr. Yuan passed away at 7:20 p.m. on July 23. At 11:43 p.m. on July 25, an earthquake measuring 5.1 on the Richter scale hit Daqing City, and even people living in Harbin City, 180 km [112 miles] from the center of the quake felt the tremors. The ground shook for more than 10 minutes. This earthquake destroyed about 1,000 homes and was followed by a powerful aftershock. This is not a coincidence!

    6. Body cremated without the family's consent

    After Mr. Yuan passed away, the prison authorities destroyed all of his belongings without asking for permission from his family. Below is a conversion between the prison authorities and Mr. Yuan's family.

    Mr. Yuan's sister: What did my brother leave behind?

    Dong Menghuan: Nothing important.

    Mr. Yuan's sister: I have to take a look.

    Dong Menghuan: No problem. I'll call them and ask them to bring it out for you. You can wait right here.

    (30 minutes later)

    Dong Menghuan: I'll bring it out at the front gate. You can meet me there.

    (30 minutes later)

    Dong Menghuan (uneasy look on his face): The guy that was with Mr. Yuan burned them.

    Mr. Yuan's sister: Why did he destroy Mr. Yuan's things?

    Dong Menghuan: What's the point of keeping those things when the person is dead?

    Mr. Yuan's wife: That man is under your watch! How can he just go ahead and burn Mr. Yuan's things? I don't believe you! I think Mr. Yuan wrote something for me and you don't want me to see it.

    Dong Menghuan: Do you think it's possible for Mr. Yuan to write things for you?

    Mr. Yuan's wife: Then why don't you let me see his things?

    Mr. Yuan's sister: Let's talk to the person who did the burning.

    Dong Menghuan: Ok.

    (A few seconds later)

    Dong Menghuan: It's too late now because everyone's gone home. Come back tomorrow!

    Mr. Yuan's sister: Tomorrow is ok, but we won't agree to cremation unless we talk to this person first.

    Dong Menghuan: What do you want? You are unreasonable!

    Mr. Yuan's wife: I'm not being unreasonable. What's wrong with wanting to see the things that my husband left behind?

    Dong Menghuan: Then go ahead and sue us. In fact, I want to sue you too. My superior will file a lawsuit against you at the Procuratorate and the court, and you will have to pay the legal fee. You can't see that person [who burned Mr. Yuan's things], because he practices Falun Gong, and Falun Gong people are not allowed to meet anyone.

    After Mr. Yuan died, the prison authorities repeatedly said to his family that his body should be cremated.

    Mr. Yuan's wife: I know that his body should be cremated; but how do you expect me to deal with the fact that you arrested my husband when he was alive and healthy, but now he is dead!

    The Prison authority: Are you asking us for money?

    Mr. Yuan's wife: When did I mention money? I won't agree to cremation because my husband died in such a suspicious way. He shouldn't have died!

    The prison authorities claimed they would sue Ms. Dong and accused her of "disrupting the administration of public duty" because she didn't agree to the cremation. They also told the family to pay tens of thousands of yuan for "medical expenses."

    Mr. Yuan's sister: Even kidnappers who murder their victims do not fabricate charges against the victim's family. The prison authorities are worse than gangsters!

    When Mr. Yuan's family finally saw his body, they saw a big hole above the big toe of the right foot; the legs, particularly the right leg, were black and blue; the skin near the left pelvis area was missing and the flesh was exposed, the area behind both ears was black and blue; blood and urine covered the inner thighs, and the quilt was also covered in blood and body fluid. His eyes were open and someone closed them. When the family went back the next day they saw the eyes were open again. Friends who went with the family said, "Look, he was murdered."

    Mr. Yuan's wife refused to let the perpetrators cremate the body because the circumstances surrounding the death were very suspicious.

    Plainclothes police officers stood around Mr. Yuan's family and pressured them to authorize cremation. Since their safety was threatened, the family reluctantly agreed to cremation.

    After the cremation, Mr. Yuan's family discovered a metal spring about 7 mm [0.27 inches] in diameter and 10 mm [0.4 inches] in length among the remains. When they stretched it out, it measured over 10 cm [3.9 inches] in length. They also found small piles of black ash from the burning of metal. Mr. Yuan's family asked the crematory whether the iron spring was from the incinerator; the answer was no, because the incinerator is cleaned after each cremation.

    A healthy and energetic person was deprived of his life after two years of detention. His body was covered in blood and wounds, and a mysterious metal spring turned up in the box of his ashes. This tragedy took place in the 21st century, a period the CCP claims to be "the best time for human rights and the most comprehensive legal system" [in China's history].

    Goodness will be rewarded and evildoing will reap its own retribution .


    Witnessing the Nature of Evil Through the Story of Du Juan's Suffering in Chongqing Women's Forced Labor Camp

    (Clearwisdom.net) Du Juan was sent twice to Maojiashan Forced Labor Camp in Chongqing and suffered brutal persecution for four years and six months for persisting in cultivating Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance and clarifying the truth. During her detention she witnessed many dirty tricks used to persecute Dafa practitioners in the labor camp, which ranged between overt and covert, mixed with violence and deceit.

    In the beginning, to resist the persecution, Du Juan would clarify the truth about Dafa and wipe off the propaganda from the blackboard that slandered Dafa. She also refused to put on a prison uniform. The police therefore instigated prisoners to torture her. They covered her mouth with dirty strips of cloth and secured them with clear wide tape. They then slapped her face with a shoe sole, stripped her and forcefully put the prison uniform on her. They tied her tightly and left her under the hot sun for several hours. In May 2002, in order to improve the so-called "reformation" rate, the woman's labor camp invited several males known for their cruelty and mercilessness from Xishanping Men's Labor Camp. The most vicious one among them was called Li Binxian. Mere mention of his name terrified the prisoners. On June 11, 2002, when Du Juan was once again sent to the labor camp and would not acknowledge her so-called crimes and refused to answer the roll call, Li Binxian slapped her face several dozen times, causing swelling and distortion. Even after a week, Ms. Du's lip was still severely swollen.

    The police guards took the lead in beating the detainees, which made the criminal inmates even more fearless. Prisoners Ma Lan and Zheng Xiuqin forced Du Juan to squat and repeat their words. When Du Juan refused, they beat and kicked her in the stomach. Ms. Du lay on the ground, sick and in extreme pain, unable to eat. Despite her extreme pain, she was still thrown into a consolidated cell where she was watched by a group of six prisoners 24 hours a day.

    The consolidated cell is a small dark room with walls covered in rubber, and with a small book-sized window on the ceiling. The air does not circulate inside the cell at all. In the winter, it is cold and damp; in the summer, it is hot, like a pressure cooker. Practitioners are held inside this cell around the clock and must eat, drink and relieve themselves in the cell. When the toilet bowl cover is open, the room smells so bad that it is hard to breathe. Despite these inhumane conditions, the practitioners were held inside the cell for one to two months. Instigated by the police, the prisoners forced Du Juan to stand straight or squat military style. She was required to stand perfectly upright, looking straight ahead with both hands tightly touching the line of her trousers. Sometimes, they would use a piece of paper and try to insert it between Du Juan's hands and her trousers to test whether her hands were tightly clasped to her body or not. Sometimes they would suddenly hit her behind the kneecap to test whether her legs were tense and straight. The requirement for squatting was to hold the body on a single foot and not move at all. The foot would be in pain after a short period of time. Changing to another foot was not permitted unless the "personal cangues" [the name given to those assigned to monitor practitioners] gave permission. Even young and strong people needed to change feet every ten minutes or so. However, the practitioners would not be allowed to change feet for half an hour, one hour, or even longer.

    Du Juan had extreme stomach pain and could not fall asleep. On June 12, she was unable to straighten her back, but the police continued to torture her since she still refused to answer the roll call. That evening, the team leader, Yang Ming, resorted to a most vicious method. He ordered some guards to use chalk to write words slandering Dafa and Master on Du Juan's clothes, her body, on the wall and on the ground. Du Juan, who holds high respect for Master, fainted. The next day, she was sent to the clinic for a checkup. After a forced infusion, she was sent back to the dark room where she continued to suffer persecution. The prisoners used vulgar language and behaved indecently by touching her breasts, shoulders and arms. When Du Juan reported it to the guards, they just sneered and left without doing anything to stop the abuse. On June 14, Du Juan's blood pressure was so low that even an infusion did not help. She was sent to Heping Hospital and was diagnosed with "damage to her left kidney and spleen, along with intestinal obstruction." The authorities were afraid to take responsibility and released her that night.

    By that time, Du Juan had suffered a lot of damage to her face, which was swollen and distorted. Her whole body was also covered in bruises. She was unable to straighten her back and had to hold her stomach when walking, and she could only walk very slowly. On June 15, to cover up their crimes, the authorities changed their minds and forcibly sent Du Juan to Heping Hospital for medical treatment. One week later, when her health improved, they once again sent her back to the labor camp. At that time, the guards hypocritically prepared highly nutritious food for Du Juan, which she refused to eat. They force-fed her to demonstrate their concern in caring for Falun Gong practitioners and to deceive and brainwash other practitioners without mentioning how they had persecuted Du Juan in the first place.

    The guards also used another way to make Du Juan suffer - no showers. In the hot weather they did not allow Ms. Du to take a shower or bathe for two whole months. Du Juan was provided with only one basin of water, which she used to brush her teeth, wash her face, feet, body and clothes. Even so, they kept continually decreasing the amount of water. Once, the police rebuked an inmate for giving Du Juan a little more water than usual. Du Juan's bed sheet was soaked with sweat but she did not have enough water to wash it. Her hair was greasy and sticky. Her clothes were stiff and she was smelly. When Du Juan protested the maltreatment, the police tried to arouse dissension among the inmates by saying "It is all because you refused to answer the roll call. Now you are making others suffer with you." An inmate said to Du Juan privately, "I would sue them once I get out." The authorities perpetrated this torture while claiming to the public that they were "educating people." When the higher authorities came for an inspection they would often make the labor camp inmates do the cleaning. The floors would be scattered with laundry powder and washed repeatedly with basins of clean water. The windows were scrubbed bright until they shined, and the restroom was doused thick with air freshener.

    The guards torture practitioners physically and mentally. The physical torture methods were labeled "strict management" or "consolidation training." The main physical torture was to force practitioners to stand military style or to squat. Victims of this torture were required to keep their body in one position for 17 to 18 hours each day with a short break during meals. After a while, the feet and hands lose blood circulation, which would cause the limbs to swell. Du Juan's feet were swollen all year round. When it was the worst, the swelling would reach her knees and by only lightly pressing on the swollen part, she could cause an indentation. Ms. Du's normal shoe size was 36 but she was unable to fit into size 40 shoes at that time. Sometimes the guards hypocritically allowed her to soak her feet in hot water before going to sleep and seemed to show concern. However they did not stop the torture, which was the cause of the swelling in the first place.

    When violence and physical punishment did not work, the guards would try the "soft" approach to get practitioners to renounce Falun Dafa. They would chat with you, hold your hands, gently stroke your hair and show sympathy with tears in their eyes. They would also show concern for you and might even give you some daily essentials for free. They may also make an exception for your visitors or "violate regulations" and allow you to keep some of the items the visitors brought for you. As long as it was helpful in their attempts to "reform" you, they would violate any regulations. However, once they discover that their soft methods were not working, their true colors would show. In the name of "regulation" and "administration," the practitioners suffered brutal and inhuman tortures. "Regulation" became their tools for persecuting and for covering up their crimes. If any inmate showed a little sympathy towards any practitioner, she would be immediately scolded.

    Mental tortures were the most widely applied and also the most subtle methods used in reforming practitioners. From the very beginning practitioners were isolated completely from the outside world. No family visits, no letters and no phone calls were allowed. The practitioners were closely monitored 24 hours a day. Almost everything required permission, including going to the restroom, getting hot water, making one's bed, combing the hair, turning around or scratching. Even the sleep posture and the direction to face while sleeping were set. If the "personal cangues" were one meter away from their assigned target, they would be regarded as irresponsible and punished. Therefore, the designated inmate would follow practitioners very closely all the time. There was a time when Du Juan was not even allowed to talk with the inmates in the same cell. Police called it "freezing." Once the "freezing" method did not work, the police changed their attitude and became warm towards her. They kept trying to brainwash her with speeches comprised of evil enlightenment [distortions of the teachings of Falun Dafa], as well as TV programs, newspapers and books that slandered and framed Dafa. Two teams consisting of three collaborators and two to three police officers per team surrounded Du Juan and tried to brainwash her. Sometimes they tried to use false reasoning and hypocritical methods, at other times they applied accusations and insults.

    Once, Du Juan was deceived by the police and their collaborators and accepted some false enlightenment. However, she realized her mistake in time, which instigated the guards to apply the "full isolation measure" on her for over seven months. During this period, Du Juan was not allowed to go downstairs. Not once was she allowed to go outside to breathe fresh air or practice the Falun Gong exercises. In this environment Ms. Du's health became progressively worse, especially in the hot months of June and July. To prevent her from even making eye contact with other fellow practitioners, she was not allowed to open her cell door. The inmates in her cell could go outside to breathe fresh air but Du Juan had to bear the dirty hot air inside the cell all day long. In August, an inmate contracted pulmonary tuberculosis. Because this inmate was poor and could not pay for medical care, the labor camp did not allow a medical check-up on her in time and therefore did not take proper isolation measures. This inmate was one of the ones assigned to closely monitor Du Juan. Soon Du Juan was infected with pulmonary tuberculosis. At that time, she did not show any obvious symptoms and she continued to do heavy labor. However, in November, she had severe breathing problems and was diagnosed with "secondary pulmonary tuberculosis" and "chest hydrocephalus on both sides." The labor camp even wanted to use this incident to slander Falun Gong. Police officer Chen Yanyan threatened to use the X-ray films to prove that practicing Falun Gong caused tuberculosis. However, Du Juan's X-ray, taken at the time of the entrance medical checkup, was normal. She was infected in the labor camp because the labor camp did not take measures in time to isolate the contagious patient. No matter how the labor camp denies this fact with all kinds of excuses, they cannot shirk their responsibility for Ms. Du's illness. Only when Du Juan suffered from high fever and had severe difficulty breathing, did the labor camp allow her to go home.

    Now there are still many practitioners detained illegally in forced labor camps in China. They are suffering inhuman tortures and maltreatment. We hope that more kind people in the world will pay attention to this persecution of belief in China.

    Falun Dafa Practitioner Mr. Wang Dejiang Is Arrested and Viciously Beaten

    (Clearwisdom.net) Mr. Wang Dejiang is a Falun Dafa practitioner from Yantai City, Shandong Province. Due to persecution, he had been forced to leave his home and remain destitute for a very long time. On August 15, 2005, Mr. Wang was arrested and viciously beaten. Later, Mr. Wang was severely persecuted while imprisoned at the Huanhai Brainwashing Center and the Zhaoyuan Brainwashing Center. When his condition worsened and his life was in danger, the police left him at the hospital and walked away. On August 31, his family and friends took him home.

    Mr. Wang Dejiang is 50 years old. He was an employee at the Yantai Marine Fisheries Corporation. He lived at Xinfu Community, Zhibu District, Yantai City. He was persecuted for practicing Falun Gong. As a result, in order to avoid the persecution, he had not able to live at home for four years.

    On the evening of August 15, 2005, guided by the local security guards, police from the Gaoling Police Station of Muping District broke into the homes of Falun Gong practitioners Sun Houqi and Sun Houxuan. Six practitioners were arrested; they are Sun Houlian, Sun Houxuan, Sun Xuejin, Wang Dejiang, Sun Houqi and his wife Wang Chunxiang.

    Mr. Wang Dejiang was able to escape from the police. When they ran after him, they told the villagers that they were chasing after a thief. The villagers believed the police and stopped Mr. Wang. When the police caught up with Mr. Wang, they beat him so badly that he passed out. According to an eyewitness, "They used a wooden bench to beat him. They beat him so severely that the bench was smashed from the beating."

    They sent Mr. Wang to the Huanhai Brainwashing Center and later transferred him to the Zhaoyuan Brainwashing Center. He refused to cooperate and acknowledge the persecution. He went on a hunger strike in protest, so the police and collaborators beat him. As a result, Mr. Wang's life was in danger.

    Around August 24, Mr. Wang was sent to the Yantai Yuhuangding Hospital. He was unable to walk. His left knee turned a dark purple color. There was a bruise under his right arm 10 cm long and 6~7 cm wide. It was unclear if it was from the electric shock or other torture. When his family demanded his release, the police and the hospital ignored their requests. Instead they instructed the caretakers from the fisheries to prevent Mr. Wang's family from visiting him. On August 31, the family and friends took Mr. Wang home. The police officers dared not tell their names or phone numbers.

    It has been learned that practitioners Sun Houlian and Sun Houxuan who were arrested along with Mr. Wang are still being detained at the Muping District Detention Center. Sun Houqi, Wang Chunxiang, and Sun Xuejing are all in their sixties. They were first detained at a brainwashing center near the Muping District Communist Party School. When the family went to visit them, they found out that they had already been secretly transferred. Sun Houqi and Wang Chunxiang do not have any family members living with them, so no one is caring for their vegetable garden, chickens, and farm crops.

    In March of this year, Gaoling Police Station officers Zhu Jianguo, Yang Yinhai, Hu Fengrui, Wang Li, Yang Xinwei and one more person broke into Sun Houqi's home and searched the place.

    Parents of Practitioners in U.S. Facing Prison Sentence: Appeal for Urgent Rescue

    (Clearwisdom.net) On July 8, 2005, at lunch time, police from the Zibo City National Security Department of Shandong Province and from the Binhai Police Department in the Shengli Oil Field went to my parents' house. They arrested my father, Zheng Ruihuan, and mother, Liu Yinglan, both of them Falun Dafa practitioners. They also confiscated my parents' computers, books and other belongings. Right now my parents are being detained at the Binhai Police Department in Dongying, Shandong Province. I heard that the law-violating police are planning to impose a secret trial and sentence them to over ten years in prison.

    My father Zheng Ruihuan was born in February 1943 and my mother Liu Yinglan was born in July 1942. They were both senior electrical engineers but took early retirement in the beginning of 1996 from Jidong Oil Field in Tangshan City, Hebei Province. They began practicing Falun Gong in 1996 for health reasons. They cultivated themselves by following the principles of Truth-Compassion-Forbearance. Soon they achieved good health and contented minds. When the Communist Party began persecuting Falun Gong in 1999, their previous work unit made my parents the focus of their "reform" tactics. My parents were forced to turn in their Falun Gong books, write a guarantee statement, and attend brainwashing classes. Their daily life was grossly violated. Every day, persons from the Retiree Administration Office called to harass them and spied on their activities. My parents were told that they must get permission from the Retiree Office if they wished to travel anywhere. My parents later learned about many cases of Falun Gong persecution in China. Together with fellow practitioners, they began to clarify the facts and revealed the evil nature of the persecution to the public.

    One day in 2002, a director from their local National Security Police Department went to my parents' house. The director told them that the police had found out that my parents were able to access some websites that the authorities had restricted. He demanded that my parents cooperate and confess to this. He threatened that if they refused to cooperate, the next visitors wouldn't be as polite as he was (meaning, "we will arrest you"). He also said that the National Security Police knew very well what their son (the writer of this article) is doing in the USA. To avoid further unnecessary trouble, my parents left their home and went into hiding.

    They moved to Shengli Oil Field area in Dongying, Shandong Province, and rented an apartment there. After the Retiree Office found out they had left home, they stopped their pension check to terminate their only source of income. Despite the difficult circumstances, my parents contacted local Falun Gong practitioners and started to clarify the facts and reveal the evil persecution. On July 8, 2005, the police arrested them.

    For the past six years plus, since the persecution began, the persecution of Falun Gong practitioners in China has never stopped. In the Shengli Oil Field alone, between January and June 2005, the police have arrested 27 Falun Gong practitioners.

    Six Elderly Practitioners from Hancheng City, Shaanxi Province Who Died as a Result of the Persecution

    (Clearwisdom.net) Ms. Li died in her 70s. She lived in Zhuangyuan Street, Hancheng City, Shaanxi Province. After she started practicing Falun Gong in 1998, the many illnesses she suffered from disappeared without medical treatment. After the government of China started its persecution of Falun Gong on July 20, 1999, the so-called law enforcement officers often harassed her at her home. Her husband is a retired leader in the Chinese Communist Party (CCP.) He fell prey to the CCP's poisonous lies about Falun Gong, so he took Falun Gong books from her and forbade her from practicing Falun Gong. Each time Ms. Li saw hate propaganda broadcast on television she was brought to tears. She would exclaim, "Falun Gong is so wonderful! Why won't the CCP allow us to practice it?" After Ms. Li witnessed Falun Gong practitioners around her being arrested and tortured, she passed away in grief and anguish.

    Ms. Meng died in her 70s. Her family works for the Magouqu Mine of the Mining Bureau in Hancheng City, Shaanxi Province. Her husband is the secretary of a branch organization. In 1998, Ms. Meng and her husband started practicing Falun Gong. Then the diabetes and hypertension that had bothered her for many years miraculously disappeared. After the CCP started its persecution of Falun Gong on July 20, 1999, the local police often harassed the couple at their home and confiscated their Falun Gong books. As a result, Ms. Meng's previous illnesses surfaced again in 2002 and claimed her life.

    Mr. Liu Jinbao died at the age of 75. He was a leader at the Hancheng Mining Bureau and a permanent member of the Party Committee in one of the CCP's organizations. He used to suffer from a liver problem and other ailments. After he started practicing Falun Gong in 1997, his health was restored. After the CCP started its persecution of Falun Gong, people from the Party Committee of Hancheng Mining Bureau often harassed Mr. Liu at home and forced him to give up practicing Falun Gong. As a result, his liver disease surfaced again at the end of 2003. He passed away in the spring of 2004.

    Ms. Wang Chunling died in her 50s. She was a worker at the Hancheng Mining Bureau factory. She used to suffer from many types of illness and was very frail. After she started practicing Falun Gong in 1998, she quickly regained her health. She was even able to carry a sack of flour up three floors. In 2001, the CCP staged the self-immolation on Tiananmen Square and fooled her husband. He forced Ms. Wang to give up practicing Falun Gong and started cursing and beating her up. Her physical and mental health was severely damaged. When Ms. Wang Chunling was on her way to her sister's home in June 2004, she had a heart attack and died. Three months later, her husband fell into the Yellow River while fishing and drowned.

    Ms. Xue Wengu died at the age of 59. She was a clerk in the Production Department of Magouqu Mine of the Hancheng Mining Bureau. She used to have heart disease and hypertension. Since she started practicing Falun Gong in 1998, she became healthy after a short time. After the CCP started its persecution of Falun Gong, Ms. Xue's family and relatives fell prey to the lies about Falun Gong and made her give up practicing Falun Gong. As a result, her previous illnesses returned. Ms. Xue was repeatedly checked into the hospital before she passed away in the spring of 2004.

    Mr. Yao died at the age of 67. He was from Wenmiaodadui, Hancheng City, Shaanxi Province. He used to suffer from enteritis and several other illnesses. He had three operations before he started practicing Falun Gong in 1996. Then he became perfectly healthy. After the CCP started persecuting Falun Gong, his family was poisoned by the CCP hate campaign and became opposed to his practice of Falun Gong. As a result, Mr. Yao passed away in the summer of 2001.


    Practitioners Exchange Insights and Experiences


    Eliminate Fear -- the Biggest Human Attachment

    (Clearwisdom.net) Teacher commented in "Study the Fa Well, and Getting Rid of Attachments is Not Hard" (from a recent Clearwisdom article, "The Only Thing Falun Dafa Disciples Have a Role in Is Saving People ** With Teacher's Commentary"):

    "The fact is, those who can't step forward, regardless of the excuse, are concealing fear. Yet for cultivators, fear or lack thereof proves [one's] humanity or divinity, and it is what differentiates cultivators from ordinary people. It is something that a cultivator must face, and the biggest human attachment that a cultivator must remove."

    Teacher has discussed the attachment of fear many times. In Zhuan Falun, Teacher mentioned that there was a person who became an Arhat after much effort in cultivation, but because of his fear of failing, he fell and his cultivation ended in vain. Teacher said in "Study the Fa Well, and Getting Rid of Attachments is Not Hard" that the issue of being fearful or fearless differentiated a cultivator from an ordinary person. It is clear that removing fear, the biggest human attachment, is vitally important for a cultivator, particularly for a Dafa practitioner during the Fa-rectification period. The attachment of fear is actually widespread. I would like to share with fellow practitioners my thoughts about the fear of being persecuted by the evil, based on my own enlightenment and the situations of the fellow practitioners I have seen and talked to.

    The most effective way to get rid of fear is to study the Fa with a quiet mind. Recently, the authorities have been aggresively arresting practitioners in our area. One day the party secretary of our community told my father that the police station wanted every Falun Gong practitioner to fill out a form. We all knew that it was an excuse to persecute practitioners. During this time, our whole family (we are all Dafa cultivators) sent forth righteous thoughts to disintegrate the evil's plan to persecute practitioners and to prevent practitioners from filling out the form. After a few days, the secretary came back and told my father that it wasn't necessary to fill out the form after all. Through this incident, as we looked within, we knew it was the evil hoping to use our fear as a loophole to persecute us. Through studying the Fa, our righteous thoughts can become stronger, and every cell of our bodies, from the innermost areas to the surface, will be filled with Dafa, and fear will vanish completely. As teacher said, "If you are not afraid, the factor that would make you afraid will cease to exist." ("Eliminate Your Last Attachment(s)") I feel that when we are able to study the Fa with a quiet mind, getting rid of fear will not be difficult because:

    "the Fa can break all attachments, the Fa can destroy all evil, the Fa can shatter all lies, and the Fa can strengthen righteous thoughts." ("Drive Out Interference")

    We should use righteous thoughts all the time to deal with everything that happens, and never forget that we are Teacher's disciples. We have Teacher and the Fa. What is there to be afraid of?

    "One thought born of righteous faith is all it takes. And whoever can hold firm that righteous thought and go the distance will become a magnificent god forged by Dafa." ("Teaching the Fa at the Western U.S. International Fa Conference")

    Recently, some fellow practitioners stopped going out to distribute truth-clarifying materials because they were afraid. They stayed at home sending forth righteous thoughts and studying the Fa. They thought this would be the safest way. They went out to clarify the truth occasionally but only when they considered the situation to be very safe. They used excuses to cover up their selfishness and fear. Some fellow practitioners thought that, because they had distributed lots of materials in the past, it would be fine if they didn't do as much and that they could raise their levels by sending forth righteous thoughts and studying the Fa more frequently at home. They were afraid of giving the evil any opportunities during this final phase. Isn't this the biggest loophole? They didn't know that the "safest" way was the least safe, because the old forces were watching closely to find a loophole to persecute us. Only when we diligently do well the three things that Teacher requires of us, can we keep up with the Fa-rectification and truly be safe. Actually, we have fear because we do not clearly understand the evil persecution, taking it to be ordinary human persecution against human beings.

    As a cultivator, our fear at some particular moment has a lot to do with the state of our cultivation. Actually, it is time to remove our attachment of fear. If we use our righteous thoughts to deal with it, we'll be able to get rid of this attachment. When some fellow practitioners felt fearful, they found all kinds of excuses to cover it up. When a cultivator has an attachment, it shouldn't be covered up. It is very important to know the Fa well and to have persistent righteous thoughts. It entails the degree of our belief in Teacher and the Fa. Teacher has provided us all the abilities needed to validate the Fa and if we do not follow what Teacher requires of us, isn't it because we do not totally believe in Teacher? If a Dafa practitioner has the slightest doubt in Teacher, it will affect his or her capabilities.

    The evil has now been reduced to a minimum, and we should be more persistent doing the three things well. Then we can:

    "Be solid and firm like diamond, or granite, and then nothing can affect you--evil will be afraid at the mere sight of you." ("Teaching the Fa at the Western U.S. International Fa Conference")

    It is the evil that fears us. Why should we be afraid?


    Cherish Time, for Life Is Truly Brief - Inspired by a Child's Question

    (Clearwisdom.net) One day my child asked me how many days there are in a year. I told him, "There are 365 days in a year." The question inspired me to do some calculations; to figure out how long a man's lifespan is in days. Suppose a man can live for one hundred years, then he has about 36,000 days of life span. My annual salary is about 20,000 yuan. Then I suddenly realized that my life is as limited as my annual income. Spending a day now feels like spending several yuan, until I run out of money.

    I am a young Falun Gong practitioner. I have always felt that I have a long way ahead of me and I have a lot of time at my disposal. For the longest time, I have been very lethargic in my cultivation practice and attached to my comfortable life. I didn't want to move forward in cultivation because I felt I have had a very hard and exhausting cultivation practice. When I did the calculation, a phrase suddenly popped up in my head: "Life is truly brief." Indeed, life is truly brief. How can I be lethargic in my cultivation practice? Instead of grasping the limited time at my disposal to cultivate and to validate Falun Gong, I have been addicted to a comfortable life and have difficulty parting with comfort. I don't want to stay up late. I don't want to sacrifice my sleep. I am afraid that I won't be able to clarify the truth well because I am introverted and not eloquent. I am afraid to meet my husband or other people's suspicious or sneering looks. Each time I run into an obstacle, I walk around it instead of trying to overcome it. I never seem to be able to respond to everything with righteous thoughts or a mind determined to save the world's people.

    Like a child who keeps falling when he is learning to walk, I have taken so many falls that I am afraid of walking altogether. But I know I must not stop walking. Otherwise, how will I ever be able to develop my own path?

    Teacher has endured so much for me, but it never seems to occur to me that I ought to continue my cultivation path with solid steps in order to repay Teacher, who has done for me a service as great as a mountain. It never occurred to me that I should contribute to Falun Gong! I am deeply in debt to Teacher! I have let Teacher down! What should I do? Perhaps studying the Fa solidly with a tranquil mind is the only solution to my problems. I must treat myself as a cultivator at all times and cultivate myself well while continuing to validate the Fa and fulfill my pledge. I must constantly strive forward on my journey to godhood!


    Cherish this Golden Opportunity

    (Clearwisdom.net) Recently, several Falun Dafa practitioners died one after another in our local area. Some even encountered serious illnesses, which brought a negative impact to the spreading of Falun Gong and saving sentient beings in the entire area. In regards to these problems, I would like to share my thoughts with the local practitioners, so that we can improve as a whole and together accomplish the historical mission of assisting Teacher in the Fa-rectification.

    The following is some general information about the circumstances and the cultivation state of the practitioners who encountered problems.

    1. Ms. Qiao, 65, a retired teacher, began to practice Falun Gong in 1996. Her health used to be very poor, and she had had a hysterectomy. Later, there were lumps in her breast. After Ms. Qiao started practicing Falun Gong, the lumps disappeared without treatment, and she became healthy. When the persecution of Falun Dafa began in 1999, Ms. Qiao went to Beijing to appeal for justice for Falun Gong in June 2000. She was arrested and detained in the local detention center for more than 15 days. After returning home, under severe pressure from family members, she was very frightened. She feared that her husband (who once held a post of county cadre) and daughter (cadre of the court) would be implicated, and she dared not read Falun Gong books or practice the exercises at home in a open and honorable manner. Instead, she would do it secretly. It is said that her husband would tear the book when he found Ms. Qiao reading. She was afraid to take Teacher's articles and Falun Gong materials home, and went to a fellow practitioner's home using shopping as an excuse. She then read the articles quickly and left in a hurry. When she accompanied her husband going out for recreation or watching TV at home, Ms. Qiao dared not greet or talk to fellow practitioners in his presence. Her attachment was relatively huge and she did not walk her cultivation path well. Therefore the evil took advantage of her loopholes. Sometimes, she circulated the fake articles said to be Teacher's.

    In the winter of 2004, Ms. Qiao had the symptoms of sickness karma. She studied the book and practiced the exercises a lot less. She did not treat her symptoms with righteous thoughts, and her condition became worse. When she gave up studying the book and practicing the exercises, wavering under pressure and human notions, she again went to the hospital and was diagnosed with terminal lung cancer. Ms. Qiao was hospitalized for some time, but did not improve. She returned home, became bedridden and could not take care of herself. Later, her relatives persuaded her to go to a hospital for treatment. She suffered various mental torments, and was afraid of going to sleep. Often, demons came into her dreams and frightened her until she screamed. Physically, she also suffered a great deal. Ms. Qiao died on June 9, 2005.

    2. Ms. Chen, a manager of a brewery, 45, began to practice Falun Gong in 1996. She used to have asthma and was in poor health, but after she became a practitioner, all her ailments went away. Because she was busy at work, she could not study the Fa diligently. Her husband had opposed her practicing Falun Gong. Due to the poor cultivation environment at home, for a long time, she could only study the Fa and practice the exercises away from home. In 2002, Ms. Chen became worried due to an increase in taxes on alcohol. This concern compounded the already-existing financial pressures of the brewery and her worry about the persecution of Falun Gong by the Chinese Communist Party (CCP). Many local practitioners were abducted and detained in September 2002, and two practitioners were persecuted to death. The evil took advantage of the loopholes left from many strong attachments. As a result, Ms. Chen suffered from long-term insomnia. At the end of 2002, she quit her job at the brewery and went home to recuperate, but her condition did not improve. Her husband asked her to stop practicing Falun Gong and to take medical treatment, threatening that otherwise he would divorce her. Although Ms. Chen was not willing to give up Dafa, she feared the divorce. Her strong attachments sent her into painful conflict and ordeals. Teacher gave her chances again and again, and many fellow practitioners exchanged views with her and tried to help her. Ms. Chen, however, was not able to get rid of her ordinary people's notions. Because she did not study the Fa and practice the exercises for a long time, her condition became worse. She could not go to sleep at night, did not have energy, and was absent-minded during the day. She often lost her balance. Later, medical treatment was no longer effective for her. Finally, Ms. Chen gave up Dafa completely, and with her husband she visited many places to seek treatment and a chance to recuperate. On November 2, 2003, about two months after she gave up Dafa, she and her husband both died in a car accident while on her trip to convalesce in Guiyang

    3. A retired cadre began to practice Falun Gong in 1996, and was once a local practice site coordinator. He was abducted for the second time by police in September 2002, and detained for more than two months. After he was set free, his workplace cadre had a talk with him: "You say Dafa is good, and you are healthy from practicing. Please write a guarantee statement that you will not claim medical expenses." He agreed and did it as asked. At the same time, in order to illegally monitor him, party officials requested that he participate in a bike riding tour of one of the city's older universities. He agreed and actively joined the activity. During the tour, he fell off the bike and injured himself. After he returned home, he went into a coma. He stayed in the hospital for more than 6 months, and now is still partially paralyzed and in a wheelchair.

    The above-mentioned problems made me better understand the following: If we do not study the Fa well, we cannot understand things from the Fa principles. In addition, without faith in Dafa, we cannot walk our cultivation path well. If when we are unable to let go of strong attachments and are unable to pass the tests and give up the practice, we become an everyday person again.

    Teacher said:

    "Cultivation practice is extremely arduous and very serious. If you are being careless for a moment, you may stumble and become ruined at once. Therefore, one's mind must be right." (Zhuan Falun)

    "It's because you practice cultivation in the upright Fa that you have escaped the karma you owed in your previous lives. Once you are reduced to the level of an everyday person, no one will protect you and demons will also take your life." "It's difficult to practice cultivation, yet very easy to fall. When a person fails a test or can't let go of a strong human attachment, he might reverse himself or go to the opposite side. There are too many lessons in history. Only after having fallen down will a person begin to regret, yet then it's too late."("Dafa Can Never be Plagiarized" from Essentials for Further Advancement)

    At the same time, I also realize that the evil not only persecutes Dafa practitioners in the form of illegal detention, imprisonment, forced labor, and torture, but it also makes use of every form to destroy us, if we do not walk righeously, if we deviate from the Fa and cooperate with the evil.

    Teacher told us:

    "No matter what the situation, do not cooperate with the evil's demands, orders, or what it instigates. If everyone does this the environment won't be this way." ("Dafa Disciples' Righteous Thoughts are Powerful")

    Aren't those people who encountered problems destroyed by the evil because they acknowleged and cooperated with the evil? There are also people who think other practitionesrs were persecuted because of their shortcomings. They think, "I just stay at home to study the Fa and practice the exercises. I feel very good and very safe, and I will not be persecuted." As a matter of fact, this is cooperating with the evil, walking on the path arranged by the old forces. This situation is very dangerous.

    Teacher said:

    "Some people who started studying the Fa in the earlier period say that they read the book at home and that they won't go out and do the things that Dafa disciples must do. I'm thinking that those people are not too far away from having a wicked understanding, and they are lucky if they haven't begun to stray. Over the past few years, Dafa disciples have been validating the Fa amidst the persecution and saving beings through clarifying the truth. Those people won't improve at all, no matter how much they may read the book at home. If you don't do the things that Dafa disciples should do, not only won't you improve, but you will only slide downwards. 'Dafa disciple'... 'Dafa disciple,' what does being a 'Fa-Rectification Period Dafa Disciple' mean? It is the foremost title and the most magnificent being in the cosmos. If you only care about your own salvation, will that do? How could that be called being a 'Dafa disciple'? What is a 'Fa-Rectification Period Dafa Disciple'? Have you validated the Fa? You came when Dafa benefited you, yet you hid out and didn't dare to speak up for Dafa when it faced danger. You have shown yourself to be less worthy than an ordinary person, so what's the point of 'studying the Fa at home'? All beings are being poisoned in the persecution, so how could you feel at ease being in hiding? Why are Dafa disciples clarifying the truth and saving beings? Because that is Dafa disciples' duty. That is the kind of being that I, Li Hongzhi, want, and a Dafa disciple is that kind of cultivator." ("Teaching the Fa at the 2004 International Fa Conference in New York")

    Then why do such practitioners still have a "calm and secure" life? Have you thought about it? It is not because the evil does not want to persecute you, but because of Teacher's immense compassion: giving you chances and waiting for your awakening. In the end, if you are still unable to step out, clarify the truth, and save the sentient beings, but just want to benefit from Dafa and refuse to give back or complete your historical mission, then when Teacher gives up on you, wouldn't the evil also destroy you?

    Fellow practitioners, let us cherish this golden opportunity of practicing Falun Dafa, which is the one and only occurrence of its kind in the history of mankind. Let us steadfastly follow Teacher, assist Teacher in the Fa-rectification, and together strive forward.

    This is only my personal understanding; if there is anything inappropriate, please kindly correct me.


    I Witnessed the Miracles of Falun Dafa

    (Clearwisdom.net) I started to practice Falun Dafa in June 1997 when a practitioner gave me a copy of Zhuan Falun. After reading it, I was deeply moved by the universal principles taught by Teacher. Moreover, I realized He is the Teacher I had always been looking for, and so I decided to start cultivating on this righteous cultivation way. Although I have never seen Master, I always feel that Teacher is by my side and looking after me.

    Teacher taught and guided us to do the three things well in order to save sentient beings. Here, I would like to write down the miracles I have experienced, so as to share them with fellow practitioners as part of the validation of Dafa.

    One day in 1998 when I was practicing the second exercise, "Falun Standing Stance," and holding the wheel in front of my head, I saw a grand world. There were countless colorful Falun emblems rotating and flying around the exercise site. Some landed on our heads, shoulders and bodies to rectify us. After a while, the practice site disappeared. There appeared another intriguing world. I was on a green mountain. There were many trees, bushes and grasses that I have never before seen in this world, and a footpath that wandered towards the other side of the mountain. The creek was clean and clear, and a magnificent building analogous to an ancient temple could be seen in the distance. Everything was clearer than our world, and the sky was so blue that it was beyond words.

    At this time I opened my eyes, and the scenery was still there. After a while, I looked higher to see another flower world stretching to the horizon. The color was a little bit lighter than before, appearing even more beautiful.

    When I looked much higher, I saw a celestial beings' world. There were men and women who appeared around 17 to 40 years old in the guise of the ancient Chinese. Their skin was extremely soft and tender, and they looked so beautiful. Their bodies were also transparent. At this time, I tried to see the scene of those two dimensions, and I found that I could continue seeing everyone at will until the end of the exercises.

    After arriving back home, I recalled what had just transpired, and I wanted to see it one more time. Right after this thought, I saw those scenes again right away. This phenomenon lasted for three days, and it is somewhat like Teacher's descriptions in the poem, "Delusion" in Hongyin,

    "Multitudinous are the lives that fill the Firmament,
    Layer upon layer, each with its Heaven and Earth.
    So incredible and wonderful the spectacle,
    But the common man is too lost, caught in delusion.

    How easy to say, it is, yet so hard to really see,
    For cultivation is like climbing steps.
    Only up high does the mist of delusion clear,
    There the magnificent sight appears--
    miraculous,
    indescribable!"

    I previously worked for the army, so I was stubborn, due to the atheistic education I had received for those many years. But after seeing supernatural scenes with my own eyes, I was really shocked, and this persuaded me to think it over independently.

    Teacher told us in Zhuan Falun, "One's Primordial Spirit does not stay only in the niwan palace" and "A human body is a small universe. Many living beings in a practitioner's body might be able to exchange locations." (Lecture 9) One night, I found that my thought process had transferred to my heart, that my heart was thinking about something. And my head felt like my limbs, without the ability to think. After half a minute or so, my thought returned to my head, and I was thinking by using my head again. I told this to my wife, who is also a practitioner. She answered, "I have used my heart to think since childhood, and I thought others could do the same."

    In June 1998, as I opened Zhuan Falun at a group Fa study, the book shot out an indescribable number of golden rays. When I turned several pages, I saw that every word was shining. Teacher told us in Zhuan Falun, "Those of our practitioners with the Third Eye open can each see that this book looks very colorful, golden and shiny. Each word bears the image of my fashen." (Lecture 9)

    I know that many practitioners have experienced these supernatural phenomena independently. At the beginning of my cultivation, I had to wear strong corrective reading glasses to read Zhuan Falun, and then I decided to no longer wear them. Although I could not see words clearly in the beginning, I believed in Teacher and in Dafa. Several days passed, and a miracle happened. As long as I studied Zhuan Falun, the words in the book would grow larger and protrude from the page, and after two or three months, I could read the book without glasses.

    In fact, these miracles happen so many times in our cultivation, but because of our limitations, we often cannot see them.

    I am over 60 years old, and I have been through countless political "movements." I have also been to many places and experienced the joys and sorrows of life, yet I still feel so lucky to practice Dafa. I have faith that people will no longer be deceived by the lies of the Communist Party and will begin to treat Dafa in the right way. I also wish for every practitioner to cherish this opportunity and to remain diligent until Consummation.

    Discussing the Reasons for the Reopening of Brainwashing Centers in Guangxi Province

    (Clearwisdom.net) Recently, several brainwashing centers reopened in parts of Guangxi Province. Teacher told us, "As I've said, everything that happens today in the ordinary society is the result of Dafa disciples' thoughts" ("Teaching the Fa at the 2002 Fa Conference in Philadelphia, U.S.A"). So I think that the reopening of the centers has something to do with the cultivation state of the practitioners in Guangxi Province. There are some practitioners who have been stuck at the level of personal cultivation for very long periods of times. These practitioners realize their responsibilities, but they are being held back due to their fearful hearts or their desires to live peaceful and quiet lives without interference. They simply have not come to understand the mission bestowed on Fa-rectification disciples. They are content with their own notions that they are still practicing cultivation while doing some truth clarification work along the way. Nonetheless, these practitioners have not proactively involved themselves in the three things. Truth clarification efforts here in Guangxi Province are lacking in both depth and extensiveness. Many areas still have not established a single truth clarification materials production site. Even some big cities are short of sites, and the practitioners in those cities have to obtain relevant truth clarification materials from other places. Thus, truth clarification is far from "blossoming everywhere."

    When such a phenomenon exists, the old forces readily take advantage of it. When practitioners solely depend upon others to give them truth clarification materials, the evil forces will destroy existing materials production sites. When practitioners assume that they should be safe staying at home just doing the exercises, the evil forces will then arrest those practitioners in their homes and send them to the brainwashing centers. In a sense, these practitioners are being forced to go out of their homes.

    Starting during the latter half of last year, the evil forces attacked and destroyed many truth clarification materials production sites in Guangxi Province. Practitioners who had been doing truth clarification work have been arrested, and some have been sentenced to prison terms. Because of the occurrence of all these incidents, I realized that every one of us here should start to think carefully and search inwardly for our gaps. When many practitioners are not doing truth clarification work well, the evil forces will concentrate their energy and forcefully crack down on those few practitioners who have been outstanding in their truth clarification. How can we say that the persecution that those few practitioners are now experiencing has nothing to do with our group as a whole?

    As a matter of fact, a practitioner is not safe at all if he or she does not venture out to do truth clarification. Doesn't the current reopening of brainwashing centers demonstrate that point? Only when we do the "three things" well and catch up with the Fa-rectification path, will we be protected with the uttermost safety. When we become part of the Fa, who can then reach and touch us?

    One practitioner from Fangchenggang City jumped out of a two-story building because he could no longer endure the persecution. Now his life is just hanging on by a very thin thread. We were all surprised and broken-hearted when we first heard of the news, yet, what should we do now? We all know that the righteous thoughts that our practitioners emanate could have made all the evil forces tremble with fear. Why have we become so helpless?

    A Fa-rectification practitioner's mission is to help Teacher in rectifying the Fa and saving the world's sentient beings; this is also exhibiting a living being's true nature. We should not put our own safety first. The element of selfishness in the old cosmos goes beyond a very high level, and the selfish character that is manifested among those degenerated living beings is already pushing the old cosmos to the very brink of destruction with ever-increasing speed. Dafa practitioners, on the contrary, should cultivate "to attain the righteous Enlightenment of selflessness and altruism" ("Non-Omission in Buddha-Nature," Essentials for Further Advancement). How can we consummate if we hold onto and try to protect our own selves only? If we refuse to do Dafa work out of fear of bringing trouble to ourselves and choose only to finish seemingly safe tasks, we are deluding ourselves into believing that we are still doing truth clarification, while in reality we are waiting for the persecution to end while watching from the sidelines. Where do you think we should be placed in the upcoming, splendid and uttermost blissful new cosmos?

    Teacher said,

    "Everything in the world was established and created for the Fa-rectification" ("To the European Fa Conference in Stockholm").

    Let us release our selfishness and openly walk the path to godhood.


    People Are Awakening to the Truth


    "None of Us Will Reveal This Secret"

    (Clearwisdom.net) As Falun Dafa practitioners constantly clarify the truth about Falun Dafa and the persecution imposed on practitioners, the people of the world have become increasingly more clearheaded. The following are several stories from China, illustrating peoples' righteous thoughts and behavior towards Dafa.

    "None of Us Will Reveal This Secret"

    Several students, one of whom is a practitioner, live in a high school dormitory. Through this practitioner's constant effort in clarifying the truth to students in the dorm, his fellow students have come to understand the truth about the persecution of Falun Dafa. Now the students in this dorm have made a rule for themselves that none of them will tell others about this practitioner. Everyone wishes to keep it secret, because if the school authorities ever found out about it, the practitioner would be expelled from school. Not one of the students in this dorm has ever leaked the secret, not even to their parents. Judging from this example, we can see the acts of justice and kindness demonstrated by young people that have come to understand the truth. In doing so, these students are also ensuring good futures for themselves.

    Awakened Villagers and a Village Officer Protect a Falun Dafa Practitioner

    In 2004, when people were busy with the autumn harvest, some policemen drove to a village in the Changchun area, intent on abducting a certain Falun Dafa practitioner. The police asked the villagers where the Falun Dafa practitioner lived, but they all denied even knowing such a person. After driving around the village several times, the policemen were still unable to find the practitioner, so they turned to the village security officer for help. While this village officer, who had awakened to the truth, was dealing with the police, he secretly dispatched someone to inform the practitioner that he needed to quickly move. With the protection of the awakened villagers and this officer, the practitioner was able to safely escape danger.

    "Just Like Falun Gong, You Definitely Won't Have Any Problem"

    At present, under the great current of the Fa-rectification, the way that the people of the world treat Teacher's teachings and the way that they treat practitioners have all changed dramatically.

    One day in June, I was taking a driver's license test. In the testing center there was a woman who seemed very nervous. After getting in the car she did not do well on the test, so she was given another chance to make it up. Just then, a man standing next to her said loudly, "You need have self-confidence, very strong self-confidence, just like those Falun Gong people. They have the unshakeable conviction that they will definitely succeed. If you can try to be just like Falun Gong, you definitely won't have any problem." Hearing the man say this made me feel really happy.

    "You Never Seem to Get Angry"

    Everything is changing. Our confidence in the Fa is as solid as a diamond. Whenever I see these positive changes in people it always makes me feel happy.

    The other morning at work, my supervisor yelled at his staff again, making them all angry. A female colleague came to my office and began venting about how bad the supervisor had become. I took the opportunity to tell her that behind the supervisor's behavior was the evil specter of the Communist Party's ideology. The colleague admired my emotional stability and said, "You really are something! You never seem to get angry at all. You are indeed 'Zhen-Shen-Ren' [Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance]."

    189 People Declare that their Words and Deeds Under Forced Brainwashing are Null and Void
    A Total of 288897 Declarations Have Been Published To Date

    (Clearwisdom.net) A "solemn declaration" is a person's public statement declaring to the world that whatever he or she has done or said under duress or deception that was against Falun Dafa is null and void. Most of these statements have come from Falun Dafa practitioners in China who wished to express regret that, in the face of physical torture and brainwashing, they had signed documents renouncing Dafa and guaranteeing not to practice again. Also, as more and more people in China learn the truth about how they have been deceived and lied to by the Jiang regime, many non-practitioners are also submitting "solemn declarations."

    Here are some examples of the Solemn Declarations:
