    Ms. Li Weixun Arrives in Baltimore With Help from the UN Refugee Agency and the U.S. Government

    ( Falun Gong practitioner Ms. Li Weixun from Shenyang City, Liaoning Province obtained United Nations refugee status in Thailand. With assistance and support from the Friends of Falun Gong Organization in the U.S., the UN Refugee Agency, the U.S. State Department, U.S. Congress and some NGOs, she received approval from the UN Refugee Agency to stay in the U.S., and she safely arrived at the Baltimore International Airport at midnight on September 21, 2005.

    Falun Gong practitioner Li Weixun arrives in the U.S.

    Her Experience of Brutal Persecution by the Chinese Communist Party

    Li Weixun was savagely tortured by the CCP police in early January 2002 for persevering in her practice of Falun Gong. She could not move her arms or legs, and she could not talk or eat. When she was on the brink of death, the perpetrators reluctantly approved medical parole through the Shenyang City 610 Office, and they sent her to the No. 1 Hospital Affiliated with China Medical University for emergency treatment, only after strong repeated requests from her family and friends. During her stay at the hospital, four police officers watched her around the clock. She successfully escaped the monitoring and left China, and she obtained UN refugee status in Thailand. After she went through some procedures and waited for a while, the UN Refugee Agency and the Friends of Falun Gong organization sought and obtained support from the U.S. government on her behalf, and Li Weixun received permission to live in the U.S.

    According to Li Weixun, she and her husband both worked for the CCP Committee of a large factory in Shenyang City. To defame her and attack her cultivation practice, the CCP Committee slandered Falun Gong through a loudspeaker that resonated throughout the factory, which hurt her and her family. The police constantly harassed her and frightened her mother-in-law, who became nervous whenever someone knocked on the door. During her illegal detention, she was tortured to the brink of death. The police were afraid to take responsibility for this, so they agreed to release her on medical parole. Later she went home on an outpatient basis. The police stayed at her home next to her room and they asked to break open the room through the dividing wall so they could watch her at all times. Her family members, who do not practice Falun Gong, could not take it anymore and said to the police, "We know you are doing this to keep your job, otherwise we would have kicked you out and you would have to sleep in the street." Her family, friends and other Falun Gong practitioners risked their lives and helped her escape from home to go to another country. The people who helped her were severely persecuted; some of her family members who are not Falun Gong practitioners were sentenced to eight years in prison and are currently being incarcerated.

    Li Weixun's hometown of Shenyang City is under the jurisdiction of Bo Xilai, the governor of Liaoning Province. Li Weixun was one of the plaintiffs who filed a lawsuit in the U.S. against Bo Xilai during his visit there, because his actions have resulted in the severe persecution of Falun Gong practitioners in that region.

    She is Grateful for Help from People in the U.S.

    On the morning of September 23, 2005, some Falun Gong practitioners in the U.S. accompanied Li Weixun to attend training and service programs for refugees provided by the Office of Refugee Resettlement. Li Weixun thanked the people for their help and support. Ms. Sala thanked Falun Gong practitioners for their help with Li Weixun's release. The officials informed the trainees that the U.S. government accepted some international refugees who do not have family members or friends in the U.S., and Li Weixun is one of them.

    In the afternoon, Li Weixun visited the U.S. State Department and expressed her sincere gratitude for the help that the U.S. government has extended to her and other Falun Gong practitioners. She also told three veteran officials the State Department about the unreasonable persecution she suffered in China for practicing Falun Gong.

    Regarding the new CCP leader's speech that included the phrase "building a harmonious society" that was recently given at a United Nations meeting, Li Weixun told the U.S. officials that she personally witnessed Falun Gong practitioners being tortured and disabled. She saw many Falun Gong practitioners who were forced to leave home under the severe persecution to avoid harassment; yet they could not rent a room from any hotel and the police constantly pursued them. Oftentimes dozens of practitioners slept on the floor in a small room. The CCP tried to physically destroy Falun Gong practitioners, but the practitioners resolutely refused to give up their belief despite tremendous risk to their lives. The slogan "building a harmonious society" is a lie in China. Not only are Falun Gong practitioners persecuted, but people of various beliefs as well as political dissidents were also arrested and persecuted. The CCP leader was only trying to deceive and brainwash the world's people by spreading the propaganda of "building a harmonious society" to the international society.

    The State Department officials thanked Li Weixun for her visit and said they would continue to pay attention to the persecution of Falun Gong by the CCP, and they will bring up the topic during future meetings with Chinese officials, and they will urge the Chinese government to respect Falun Gong practitioners and other Chinese people's freedom of belief and freedom of speech.

    Ms. Li Weixun is another Falun Gong practitioner who does not have any family relations in the U.S., but was still accepted by the U.S. government in the past six years during the persecution of Falun Gong by the CCP and Jiang Zemin's regime. In 2001, several Falun Gong practitioners studying in Singapore did exercises in a park and clarified the truth about the persecution. Due to political pressure and financial incentives from the CCP government, the Singapore government arrested and detained them. After Falun Gong practitioners from other parts of the world clarified the truth to the Singapore government, it released the practitioners but demanded that they leave Singapore. They faced persecution if they returned to China. The UN Refugee Agency and the U.S. Government extended a helping hand and got them to the U.S. in a very short time.

    It was people who loved freedom of belief that created the tradition of the U.S.' emphasis on democracy, freedom, and human rights--the country's founding principles. As the government upholds and maintains justice and order in the world under the banner of justice and morality, America has prospered and flourished.

    Press Conference on September 27 to Urge the U.S. Government to Bar Chinese Minister of Culture from Entry

    WHO: Falun Dafa Association in Greater Washington, D.C., Area

    WHEN: 12:45 p.m., Tuesday, Sept. 27

    WHERE: Chinese Embassy, 2300 Connecticut Ave, N.W., Washington, D.C.


    Sun Jiazheng, China's Minister of Culture, intends to attend the Festival of China at John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts in the United States in October 2005.

    We request the State Department to deny Chinese government official Sun Jiazheng an entry visa into the United States pursuant to INA 212(a)(2)(G), 8 U.S.C.A. Section 1182(a)(2)(G) -- "Foreign government officials who have engaged in particularly severe violations of religious freedom." Sun Jiazheng has played a major role in the persecution of Falun Gong practitioners in China:

    -- China's Ministry of Culture has closely followed Jiang Zemin's orders in the suppression of Falun Gong by banning and massive destroying Falun Gong publications;

    -- Sun chairs an organizing committee of "internet civilization project" to monitor and block the "antagonistic forces" inside and outside China including emails with contents of Falun Gong;

    -- China's Ministry of Culture launched hate campaign to direct intellectuals in producing numerous literature and art pieces smearing and instigating hatred of Falun Gong;

    -- In January of 2004, a lawsuit was filed against Sun in France during his visit as part of Sino-France Cultural Year Exchange Program. The charges include "incitement of massacre and persecution"

    The anti-Falun Gong "cultural" campaign directly resulted in Chinese people's hate against Falun Gong, and legitimized the torture and killing. To allow Sun Jiazheng into the United States to attend events hosted by John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts, a US government organization, would send a troubling message that the U.S. government ignores its own immigration and human rights laws when dealing with the People's Republic of China.

    As the Nine Commentaries on Communist Party put it in "On How the Chinese Communist Party Destroyed Traditional Culture", the Communist regime destroyed Chinese traditional culture, replacing it with 'communist culture' which advocates the philosophy of 'struggling with heaven, earth and humanity' and destroyed traditional faith of Buddhism, Taoism and Confucianism. Communist "culture" is actually a propaganda tool to control Chinese people's minds and force a suppressive social environment, wielded whenever it desires to persecute a group the CCP recognizes as different from its own violent nature. Past recipients of this destructive dictation of culture include landowners, intellectuals, artists, and people of Chinese traditional faiths.

    The 2005 Australia Falun Dafa Cultivation Experience Sharing Conference Held in Canberra (Photo)

    ( The 2005 Australia Falun Dafa Cultivation Experience Sharing Conference was held on September 25, 2005 at the Queanbeyan Conference Center in Canberra. Practitioners from across Australia and some Asia-Pacific countries attended. More than a dozen practitioners gave speeches.

    High Resolution Picture

    Practitioners who gave the speeches shared their understandings and experiences as part of the Fa-rectification cultivation process and their experiences in validating Dafa through various means.

    Among them, a practitioner who is involved in media work shared from different angles how he let go of self, worked together with others as one body, clarified the truth, and how this affected his personal cultivation and improvement.

    Regarding the recent situation of some practitioners appearing to have symptoms of illness karma, Ms. Zhu shared her experience of breaking through evil persecution with the power of her righteous thoughts, and her understanding of Teacher's poem, "When disciples' righteous thoughts are strong, Teacher's mighty power can help them do everything." (Provisional translation of 'The Kindness of Master and Disciples' from Hongyin II, a collection of Teacher's poems)

    Practitioners who have long been holding peaceful appeals in front of the Chinese Embassy and practitioners who have long been clarifying the truth to Chinese tourists at various sites also shared their experiences.

    Mr. Yang, who used to be pro-democracy activist, shared his experience of seeing through the CCP's wicked nature by reading the "Nine Commentaries on the Communist Party." He completely abandoned the CCP and took the path of cultivation that will lead him to return to his original, true self.

    Practitioner Susan shared her Fa-rectification cultivation experience. She did not complete primary school. At the beginning of this year, she did not know how to use a computer or how to get on the Internet. As time went on, she became proficient in using the computer and chatted online with people to clarify the truth to them.

    A representative of practitioners who do media work shared about how they maintained righteous thoughts and righteous actions, and overcame economic barriers when holding a Mid-Autumn Festival activity this year.

    The Fa conference concluded after practitioners from the Tong Song Chorus performed the song "Ode to Lotus Flowers."

    Photography Exhibit of Falun Dafa Practitioners Validating the Fa Held for the First Time in New Zealand (Photos)

    ( On September 25, 2005, the "Photography Exhibit of Falun Dafa Practitioners Validating the Fa" was held for the first time at the Mission Bay in the city of Auckland. A constant stream of visitors was deeply moved by the Falun Dafa practitioners' peaceful and rational opposition to the persecution, which was manifested by the photographs. Visitors were also touched by the spirit of orthodox culture exhibited by Dafa practitioners' art performances that were documented by the photos.

    The photography exhibit consisted of three sections: In section one, "Journey of cultivation," the splendid scene showing practitioners' health and moral improvements through practicing cultivation and grand group practices exhibited the beauty of Falun Dafa and its worldwide spread. The second section focused on the peaceful resistance to the persecution. The photos exhibited the Falun Dafa practitioners' steadfast faith in their belief and their efforts in persistently clarifying the truth under the Chinese communist regime's cruel persecution. The third section recorded the precious moments when Minghui School students and teachers traveled the streets to clarify the truth to people. The young practitioners' innocent smiles brought people hope for the future.

    A visitor standing in front of the section with the theme "Peaceful Resistance to the Persecution" said with indignation, "The Chinese Communist Party is too bad! What good is persecuting you?" From each visitor's expression, one could tell that they felt the beauty and sacredness of Falun Dafa through appreciating the art.

    Practitioners who participated in preparing this exhibit included mothers of young children, professors from universities, a Master's degree holder in economics and construction workers. They used their spare time to closely work together. Through mutual respect and cooperation, their special skills were maximally brought into play. They overcame all kinds of difficulties and held a successful event.

    Practitioners expressed that in order to help more people learn about the cultivators' journey and the facts about Falun Dafa, they will hold the exhibit in a variety of places.

    Taiwan: Falun Dafa Club at National Cheng Kung University Is Invited to Join an Activity Welcoming New Students (Photos)

    On September 13, 2005, the Falun Dafa Club at the National Cheng Kung University took part in a party to welcome new students. Young students who practice Falun Gong in Tainan County demonstrated the elegant five sets of Falun Gong exercises at the university's performance hall. They also recounted the persecution facts in Mainland China.

    The peaceful exercise demonstration distinguished itself from other clubs or organizations' songs and dances. When the euphonious exercise music resounded, the entire hall was suddenly quiet and peaceful. The demonstration brought new students something fresh, beautiful and pure.

    Club expo to recruit new students

    On September 14 and 15, clubs and organizations at National Cheng Kung University held activities to recruit new students. The Falun Dafa Club decorated their booth with beautiful lotus flowers. They also exhibited the book "Zhuan Falun," as well as a brief introduction to Falun Gong and other truth-clarification materials exposing the persecution.

    High Resolution Picture
    New students attentively listen while veteran students talk about the worldwide spread of Falun Dafa and about how practitioners benefit from the practice.

    During the two days, many new students took the initiative to learn more about Falun Dafa. They expressed their interest in our profound cultivation practice and left their contact information. Some new students liked the lotus flowers very much and they began learning how to fold the flowers at the booth. Two students took the initiative to help with the Falun Dafa club booth.

    There were also quite a number of new students who did not understand why Falun Gong is persecuted in Mainland China. Practitioners patiently explained to them: Falun Gong has helped people to improve their physical health and moral standard and had been warmly received in China. In just a few years, 100 million people began practicing Falun Gong. Unfortunately, the Chinese Communist Party's evil nature determined that it could not tolerate the wide spreading of "Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance." The former head of China, Jiang Zemin, was especially jealous of the great popularity of Falun Gong. On June 10, 1999, under Jiang's personal orders, an agency for terrorism, the 610 Office, was established. The 610 Office overrides the Chinese constitution and is above the Chinese law, and its sole purpose is to carry out the persecution of Falun Gong. On July 20, 1999, Jiang Zemin ordered the "610 Office" to systematically oppress Falun Gong practitioners by applying the following policies: "Ruin their reputations, bankrupt them financially, and destroy them physically;" "if a practitioner is beaten to death, count it as suicide;" and "directly cremate their bodies without verifying their identities." Numerous Falun Gong practitioners have been tortured to death as a result of Jiang's murderous policies. Countless families have been torn apart. Millions of practitioners have been forced to leave their homes to avoid further persecution. The family members, friends and even the colleagues of Falun Gong practitioners have encountered brainwashing and have been incriminated to different degrees.

    Since July 20, 1999, 2,728 Falun Gong practitioners have been confirmed dead as a result of the persecution. The death cases are spread over more than 30 provinces in Mainland China. Due to the difficulty of obtaining the facts in China, this number represents only a small portion of the true number of deaths.

    Practitioners also wished that those who have learned the facts about Falun Dafa could provide some help to Mainland practitioners, and suggested that doing so will also bring them a good future.

    Calling for Justice and Working Together to Rescue Falun Gong Orphans (Photos)

    ( On September 24, 2005, at the Dehsing Stadium where the Hualian County Sports Meeting was held, Falun Gong practitioners collected signatures in support of rescuing children who are suffering from the persecution of Falun Gong in China. Since August 25, when the signature drive and the rescue campaign began, we have received about 8000 signatures from citizens of different cities and counties in Taiwan.

    The Hualian County Sports Meeting began to cheers. Two art paintings exhibited at the stadium entrance were very eye-catching. One painting depicted a lovely girl whose eyes were full of tears. Another one depicted a little boy who stood inside an iron-barred cell. His eyes expressed confusion. With a careful look, one could understand that the paintings helped the signature drive for rescuing children who are suffering the persecution of Falun Gong in China.

    The Persecution Has Never Stopped During the Past Six Plus Years

    Practitioner Mr. Lu said, "Since the Chinese communist regime and Jiang's faction launched the inhuman persecution of Falun Gong practitioners who believe in 'Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance,' nearly 3000 practitioners have been verified to have died in the persecution. The persecution also deprived countless children of their right to go to school. Some were forced to leave home and became homeless. Some have been orphaned." He said that such brutal persecution has continued for more than six years and the bloody persecution has never stopped. Because of the Chinese Communist Party's information blockade, people are unable to learn about the facts of the persecution.

    Practitioners carried truth-clarification materials and told athletes and visitors the facts about Falun Gong and the persecution initiated by Jiang Zemin out of his jealousy. One after another, people signed the petition and expressed their sympathy towards those orphans, and indignation towards the suppression. One visitor signed the petition and brought his friends and family members to sign the petition. Police officers assigned to patrol the event also supported the signature drive.

    Kind Hearts See No Boundaries Between Nations or Races, and Justice Transcends Age and Religion

    A foreign visitor signed the petition and took some postcards dedicated to the rescue effort. He said that he would bring the postcards for his friends so that they would also become aware of the plight of the orphans. He said that he would mail the postcards to President Bush and call for attention by the U.S. government. A lay-Buddhist expressed his support of this benevolent act. He took a stack of postcards and said that he would help more people to know about it and support the rescue effort.

    A little girl came with her mother to attend the sports meeting. In front of the petition desk, a practitioner recounted the persecution facts to the girl's mother. After the mother signed the petition, the little girl said that she also wanted to sign the petition. The mother said, "You don't know how to write your name in Chinese, so you can't sign it." The girl resolutely said, "I can use pinyin to substitute the words that I can't spell." In the end, she used some Chinese characters and some pinyin to fill out the petition form.

    Hualian Falun Dafa practitioners call upon everyone to uphold justice and conscience and work together to stop this ruthless persecution. Practitioners hope that people will pay attention to these Falun Gong children and help them to regain the happy life that they deserve.

    ( September 18, 2005 was the annual "Community Day" in the State of Delaware. It so happens that it was also Mid-Autumn Festival in the Chinese lunar calendar. Local practitioners called for people to show concern for Falun Gong practitioners suffering persecution in China, and to sign a petition to help rescue orphans of persecuted Falun Gong practitioners.

    Facts of the Persecution

    Falun Dafa Practitioner Ms. Bi Daihong Died From Torture at Dalian Forced Labor Camp

    ( Falun Dafa practitioner Ms. Bi Daihong from Dalian City, Liaoning Province was illegally sentenced to two years of forced labor. She was brutally tortured at the labor camp and developed symptoms of late-stage ovarian cancer. She passed away soon after she was released from the labor camp.

    Bi Daihong was born in 1968 and she worked at the Dalian City Ship Examination Bureau. She suffered from headaches and protruding spinal disc(s), but she became very healthy after she started practicing Dafa in 1996. When the persecution of Falun Gong started in 1999, she went to Beijing many times to appeal and to clarify the truth. The perpetrators ransacked her home and extorted money from her. Her work unit illegally fired her and she lost her source of income.

    In January 2003, Bi Daihong was reported when clarifying the truth. She was arrested by officers from Longwangtang Police Station in Lushun. The officers illegally held her there for one month without notifying her family. She was later sentenced to two years of forced labor and held at the Dalian Forced Labor Camp.

    On her first day at the labor camp, Bi Daihong refused to take off her clothes and submit to a physical search. The guards ordered a group of eight inmates to strip her naked outside a men's restroom on the first floor. The eight inmates beat her until she was covered with wounds and bruises. Her ears and eyes were injured, and most of her face was black and blue. After striking her to the ground, inmate Zhao Hui violently kicked her mouth, which cut her lips and knocked her teeth loose. They later sent her to solitary confinement to further persecute her. Her legs were severely injured from torture and she was crippled. When her mother inquired about her legs, the labor camp authorities lied and claimed Bi Daihong was punished for hitting someone after refusing to submit to physical search.

    Three months later, the superficial wounds were gone but Bi Daihong started to cough, and had fever and amenorrhea. She suffered from pain so severe that she often could not sleep at night. She became weary and emaciated. The guards ignored her condition and never allowed her to see a doctor. They ordered inmates to watch her around the clock and restrict her freedom. She was not allowed to go to the restroom even when she was incontinent. In addition, she was forced to do slave labor picking peas. She had to carry sacks of peas, each weighing between 50 kg [110 lbs] and 100 kg [242 lbs], up and down the stairs.

    Inmate Lin Chunhong, who was assigned to watch Bi Daihong, extorted about 4,000 Yuan from Bi Daihong's parents, taking advantage of their anguish by lying to them that their money would speed up the release process.

    When Bi Daihong's family met with her, they saw that she looked sickly. They strongly urged the labor camp authorities to take Bi Daihong to a hospital. The authorities reluctantly took Bi Daihong to have a check-up. The result came out the next day and the authorities immediately told her family to fill out paperwork for medical parole.

    Bi Daihong was diagnosed with terminal ovarian cancer. The labor camp authorities were afraid of taking responsibility should she die during medical treatment, so they pressed her family to follow the procedure for release from the labor camp. Bi Daihong was taken home and she passed away on September 1, 2005, about two months after the diagnosis.

    Families of Practitioners in Guangxi Province Are Separated for Another Mid-Autumn Festival

    ( As the Mid-Autumn Festival approaches, in Guangxi Province the sweet osmanthus are blossoming and people are anticipating a reunion with their family members. For the local Falun Gong practitioners, however, even a visit with their loved ones has become very difficult under the Chinese Communist Party (CCP).

    Four women practitioners from Beihai City bought moon-cakes to bring to their loved ones in prison.

    It was 4:00 a.m. on September 11, 2005 (Sunday). In order to get back home the same day, the four of them rented a van instead of taking a bus. Three of them went to visit their husbands, and Tan Zezhen went to visit her son-in-law. Tan's daughter is also a Falun Dafa practitioner and is currently in another prison. Among the people they were going to visit, three are Falun Gong practitioners. It is a trip of several hours for them.

    But when the van arrived at Wujia Township, Hepu County, a group of police officers stopped the van. Wei Yuguang, director of the Beihai City 610 Office, was in charge (Wei's office phone: 86-779-2091618). There were also dozens of plainclothes police officers. The driver was alarmed by the scene. A policeman twisted Ms. Tan's arms behind her back. When Ms. Tan rebuked them for acting like thugs, he said, "I am a thug, so what?"

    The plainclothes police officers said that they had been waiting there since Saturday and were not allowed to sleep. They brought the four ladies to a police station. When the four asked why they were arrested, the officers said: "You have to report to us first wherever you go." After about one hour of interrogation and threats, the officers took the four women home in police cars. A simple visit to family members was ruined by the police.

    It's hard to understand why the Beihai City "610 Office" mobilized so many officers just to block four innocent women. Much worse things, however, have been happening to practitioners in Beihai City in recent years.

    Ms. Tan Zezhen's son-in-law is Lin Hongbin. Mr. Lin used to be the coordinator of the Beihai Falun Dafa Assistance Center. He was a military officer, but later transferred to civil work, and was living with his wife and son at the home of his in-laws at #11, 5 Xinjian Street, Beihai City, Guangxi Province.

    Through practicing Falun Dafa, Lin enjoyed a happy family life. Since the persecution started on July 20, 1999, the family has suffered a lot. Lin, his wife Chen Xiao, and mother-in-law Tan Zezhen have been arrested many times. Chen Xiao's grandmother passed away due to the constant stress of threats and harassment by the police. Their home had been searched eight times. Mr. Lin's son was separated from his father when he was one year old, and separated from his mother when he was about two years old. Since July 20, 1999, the family has been able to stay together for about three months

    Not long after July 1999, Lin Hongbin went to Beijing to appeal on behalf of Falun Dafa, and shared his experience with practitioners in Guangxi. He was sent to a forced labor camp, and so was Chen Xiao. Once when Chen Xiao did the Falun Gong exercises in the labor camp, she was placed in solitary confinement for ten days. After the confinement, she and one fellow practitioner named Zhang Xu, as well as a criminal inmate who was a drug addict, were forced to walk in the sports field for three days. Unable to endure the suffering, the drug addict ran to the third floor of a building and jumped down. Astonished by the event, police officers stopped the abuse. That incident is well known at the Guangxi Women's Forced Labor Camp.

    While Chen Xiao was still in detention, her mother was taken to a forced labor camp for a one-year term. For refusing to give up her belief after one year, her term was extended for another year. During her two years of detention, Ms. Tan endured both verbal and physical abuse, but she never changed her will to practice Falun Dafa. In the last seven months of detention, she refused to answer the roll call to protest the illegal detention, and she was finally released.

    After being released from the forced labor camp, Lin Hongbin and his wife had their son Rongrong. Right after Rongrong had his first birthday, and just two months after Ms. Tan was released, Lin was arrested for hanging up Falun Dafa banners and was sentenced to 6 years in prison. Now Lin is in Litang Prison, Guangxi Province.

    When Mr. Lin was arrested, many police cars surrounded his home. He carried his son in his arms when he was arrested and handcuffed. He carried his son for a whole day while being interrogated and abused. The little baby had no food for a whole day and was picked up by family members in the evening.

    One year later, Chen Xiao was arrested again for distributing truth-clarifying materials, and was sentenced to three years in a forced labor camp. She was tortured and brainwashed in the Guangxi Women's Forced Labor Camp.

    After being released, Ms. Tan was taken to a brainwashing center and then to a police station. The police threatened to send her to a forced labor camp for three more years. Due to the continuous distress and terror from the persecution, Ms. Tan's mother-in-law passed away a few days after her return from the police station. For the past several years, the grandmother saw that good people are not safe from the CCP's persecution and could not endure anymore at the age of 90.

    Now Rongrong is four years old. Sometimes, he calls his grandpa and grandma "daddy" and "mommy." When corrected, he says, "Let's pretend that you are for now." The young boy clearly longs for a stable home environment.

    Another one of the four ladies is Lai Yunhui. Ms Lai went to visit her husband Mo Chuanxiong. Mr. Mo was born in 1960, and was formerly employed by the Shatian Branch of the Hepu County Aquatic Products Company. He lives at No.2, Lianfeng Road, Lianzhou Town, Hepu County.

    In 2000, Mr. Mo was forced to leave home to avoid the persecution after he distributed truth-clarifying materials. His wife Lai Yunhui and brother Mo Chuanhua were also arrested for being practitioners. During the interrogation, the police officers handcuffed her behind the back and lifted her up by her hair and turned her around repeatedly. In addition to that, they forced her to kneel down. Ms. Lai was sentenced to three years in prison, and Mo Chuanhua was sentenced to two and a half years.

    In April 2002, officers from Hepu County police department arrested Mo Chuanxiong and sentenced him to four years in prison. Now Mo Chuanxiong is detained at the fourth brigade of the Litang Prison, Guangxi Province.

    After the three major family members were all detained, Mo's family almost collapsed. Mo Chuanxiong and his brother Mo Chuanhua have six children all together, ranging from 2 to 12 years old. To support the family, Mo's elderly parents had to open a grocery store on the first floor of his house. During the Chinese New Year, a criminal stole the money box when Mo's father was selling goods. Once, a thief stole all the goods from the father's tricycle. At another time, Mo's father lost control of his tricycle while going uphill on the way back from purchasing goods. Mo's father fell down to the ground and suffered many bleeding injuries. One youngster told Mo's mother what happened, but she could not leave the shop, and asked the children to go and help Mo's father. During those years, most of Mo's property was stolen.

    Unable to support the 6 children, Mo's mother took the children to a court and asked for help. Mo's mother said, " My son and daughter-in-law are good people, but they are detained. Police officers frequently knocked on the door at midnight to threaten all of us." The court clerks persuaded Mo's mother to take the children home, but did not offer any help.

    After Lai Yunhui and Mo Chuanhua were released, the family's situation improved a little but they were still in hardship. Since the day of his arrest, Mo Chuanxiong denied committing any crime. In April, since he refused to have his blood drawn, he was knocked down to the ground by over 30 people and his blood was drawn by force. Mo Chuanxiong went on a hunger strike to protest. When Mo Chuanxiong's family went to visit, the prison guards refused them. Mo Chuanxiong's family got permission from the local "610 Office", but the police officer in charge of Mo Chuanxiong still would not allow a visit. Mo Chuanxiong's family asked the officers to show proof that he was still alive. Mo Chuanxiong was then carried out while being supported. From far away, Mo Chuanxiong's family members could see that his hands were dark and he could not walk by himself. The visit lasted only three minutes. Later, Mo Chuanxiong's family asked to bail him out for medical treatment, and tried to visit him several times, but were denied by the prison officers.

    Currently, Mo Chuanxiong's situation is unknown. Mo Chuanxiong's father is 88 years old, and his mother is 75. This year, Mo Chuanxiong's oldest daughter was accepted by a university, but the family cannot afford the tuition. The entire family is worried for Mo Chuanxiong's safety. His wife wanted to visit him but was blocked on the way..

    Here, we offer a piece of advice to the CCP officers: Do not persecute kind and good citizens for your personal gain. Wrongdoers will eventually meet with karmic retribution. This is a law of heaven!

    Ms. Wang Xia Has Lost Her Memory after Being Imprisoned Again (Photos)


    Ms. Wang Xia, born in 1974, was a resident in Linhe City, Inner Mongolia. Because she firmly cultivated Dafa, she has been subjected to arrest and detention numerous times since 1999. The last time she was arrested, she was sentenced to 7 years in prison. While being detained in the Inner Mongolia First Women's Prison, she was subjected to brutal torture. Moreover, she was once sent to a mental hospital to be further tortured, which caused her to lose her memory.

    In November 1999, Wang Xia was sent to the Inner Mongolia Women's Labor Camp. She was the first Dafa practitioner in Inner Mongolia sent to a labor camp. She was detained there until August 2000, when she was about 8-9 months pregnant. In February 2002, she was arrested again and sent to Hohhot Detention Center. In March 2002, Wang Xia went on a hunger strike but after 29 days of hunger strike, she was sent home because the detention center did not want to be held responsible should she die there. However, they kept a close eye on her after she returned home. On the third day of her return, in order to avoid further harassment, she escaped by climbing over the wall of her yard, but her back and face were badly injured. After finding out she had run away, the police issued an arrest warrant and started to look for her everywhere. On May 21, 2002, she was captured in Baotou City, Inner Mongolia and sent to Baotou Detention Center. On May 23, Wang Xia began a hunger strike, for which she was beaten and brutally force-fed. On July 28, 2002, she was transferred to the Hohhot Detention Center, where she joined other detained practitioners in a group hunger strike. In August 2002, she was sentenced to 7 years in prison and sent to the Inner Mongolia First Women's Prison.

    While in detention, Wang Xia started to hunger strike again. In December 2002, she was sent to the Second Hospital in Hohhot, where she was closely monitored by four inmates, including Li Xuemei, Liu Xiaojie, Gu Mo and Liu Xiaoyuan. Every day these people thought of more ways to torture her. The hospital did not pay any attention to her at all. Once while personally force-feeding Wang Xia, the hospital head had his whole body stained by the milk that came out of Wang Xia's mouth.

    Wang Xia was beaten almost every day, adding new bruises to her body even before the old ones healed. The four people who monitored her used inhumane methods to torture her. For instance, they split the handle of a mop into two sticks and wrapped them up with some cloth. Then they used them to beat Wang Xia. What was even more horrific was that they thrust the mop handle into her vagina. Once, Wang Xia did not follow an order, so they grabbed her by the hair and dragged her downstairs from the third floor. They gave her a severe beating in the courtyard. Then they inserted safety pins into her fingernails and heated them with a cigarette lighter. At other times, they would tie her up while they played cards. During detention, the police also brought in her father, husband, and baby to come and pressure her into giving up cultivation. In the summer time, she was tied to a bed all day long, with a feeding tube inserted into her nose and she was unable to move at all.

    On June 29, 2004, the police released her upon seeing that she was dying. They stopped beating her only two days before her release. When she was carried out, her head drooped and the bones in her body could be seen very clearly. Her nose still had the tube attached. At that time, she had already lost her memory.

    Several people who monitored her said, "It's good she doesn't remember anything. Otherwise, she may reveal what we did to her to the outside world."

    One week after Wang Xia returned home, her father called the prison telling them that she had survived. Then the police came to take her back to the prison again.

    Now Wang Xia does not remember anything at all. While in the prison, she eats whatever is given to her. If no one gives her food, she does not know to ask for food.

    What Is the Guangdong Law Education Center?


    The Guangdong Law Education Center (formerly known as the Guangdong Law Education School) is really a brainwashing center. It is located next to the Guangdong Province Women's Forced Labor Camp in Sanshui District, Foshan City. This brainwashing facility is a large building complex next a lake that looks like a resort village from the outside. However, many Falun Gong practitioners are savagely tortured there. According to its staff, the central and provincial governments spent a huge sum of money to build the center to specifically persecute Falun Gong practitioners. The center is governed directly by the Guangdong Provincial 610 Office. The central government occasionally sends agents to the facility. The center's administrators maintain close ties with the 610 Offices throughout Guangdong Province, and persecution orders are issued from the center. The brainwashing center has two divisions.

    When practitioners are arrested by the local 610 Office, some of them are forcibly brought to the lobby of the brainwashing center. Policemen from each division then take practitioners to their individual cells after going through several hallways and metal gates, where they feel oppressed with a sense of gloom. The lake below the center makes the air ice-cold.

    Practitioners who are detained here have one or two people monitoring them all the time. The monitors live and eat with the practitioners. They normally have some relationship with either the policemen or the officials of the center. For example, policeman Lu Jinhu enabled his older brother and two cousins to obtain jobs there. His wife is the head of the first division.

    The monitors attend the brainwashing sessions themselves, making them even more willing to help persecute practitioners. They record every word and action of the practitioners they monitor around the clock and report any infractions to the policemen on duty. The policemen then decide which persecution methods to use, and the monitoring staff helps the policemen with the persecution.

    Practitioners who are detained here are forced to pay a fee for their stay. For some practitioners, the fees are paid by their local governments or their work units. Some local governments force practitioners' families to pay for the fee. The brainwashing classes last for three months and cost 3,000 yuan. The persecution methods include the following:

    One or more policemen bombard individual practitioners with propaganda during brainwashing sessions. Sometimes they take practitioners out for a walk to the exercise room. This is to create a more relaxed environment to confuse practitioners and entice them to give up their practice.

    The policemen force practitioners to watch videos that slander Falun Gong, sometimes repeatedly for long periods of time.

    When practitioners are steadfast in their belief and "softer" measures do not work, the policemen use force. They force practitioners to stand, squat or sit on small stools for long periods of time. They show practitioners fabricated videos at high volumes. They verbally threaten practitioners. In winter, they turn on air conditioners and turn the thermostat to the coldest setting while forcing practitioners to wear very thin clothing.

    Guards deprive practitioners of sleep, as they take turns preventing practitioners from sleeping 24 hours per day. They yell at practitioners and force them to stand, and they sometimes do not give practitioners anything to eat for one or two days. If practitioners close their eyes, they are sprayed with water, pinched on the arms and ears, pulled by the hair, hit on the head or brought into the restroom, where policemen pour water over them. According to the guards, these are the "rules" at the center.

    When practitioners go on hunger strikes to protest the persecution, the facility doctor and policemen work together to force-feed and torture the practitioners.

    Evil Conduct of Luxiang Town's Local Police Station in Shuangyang District, Changchun City


    Since the persecution of Falun Gong started on July 20, 1999, Luxiang Town's local police station has persecuted Dafa disciples severely in Shuangyang District, Changchun City, Jilin Province. This police station's staff has constantly committed crimes against Falun Gong practitioners.

    On December 26, 2000 according to the lunar calendar, the Luxiang town government illegally arrested Dafa disciples Wang Yalan, Hu Shufen, Dong Jing and some others and took them to a detention center, where they fined them 600 yuan each. The Dafa disciples who were not detained were illegally sent to a forced labor camp.

    The practitioners were compelled to verbally attack Dafa and the Master. Anyone who failed to do so would be illegally detained. Some Dafa disciples had to leave home to escape the persecution. However, the Luxiang Police Station still arrested them all outside of town and sent them to a forced labor camp.

    The town police frequently harass the Dafa disciples' families, ransack their homes, and arrest them at will. Thugs were hired to remain outside Dafa disciples' homes for a long period of time in order to monitor them. As a result, eleven Dafa practitioners were sent to a forced labor camp. Mr. Yu Zhanchun and his wife Hu Shufen were sentenced to forced labor three times and two times respectively. They were arrested almost immediately after they were released home. Out of the district, Luxiang town practitioners were fined the most frequently and the most in terms of amount. Moreover, no receipts were ever given to the fined practitioners.

    After most of the public security police in Shuangyang District learned the facts about Dafa, they no longer actively participated in the persecution. However, the Luxiang Town police still followed the 610 Office to persecute Dafa disciples, showing no remorse at all. Since the beginning of the persecution, the Luxiang police have never displayed any valid documents when they ransacked Dafa disciples' homes or arrested Dafa disciples. They have never followed any legal procedures when they persecute Dafa disciples.

    The Evil Deeds Committed by Female Police Officers at the Women's Labor Camp in Huhhot City


    The following are some of the evil deeds that female police officers committed in 2002 and 2003 at the women's labor camp in Huhhot City, Inner Mongolia Province.

    In May 2002, Dafa practitioner Zhang Yuhua from Chifeng City was illegally sentenced to one year in a labor camp. For the duration of her detention Ms. Zhang refused to cooperate with the authorities, maintaining her innocence. The guards hung her up with her hands and feet stretched in opposite directions. Then, in order to prevent Ms. Zhang from witnessing their evil deeds, they covered her head with a black cloth, also making it difficult for her to breathe. Eventually the bones on both of Zhang Yuhua's wrists became exposed from the prolonged hanging. In addition, there was no place on her body that was not affected by the electric shocks. She spent every single second in extreme pain. Zhang Yuhua's sentence was illegally extended by 7 months, and she was not released until just before the spring festival in 2003. She was only skin and bones when she was released. The policewomen that directly participated in the persecution of Ms. Zhang are Wang Dongyun (over 30 years old), Wu Jing (over 30 years old), and Wang Xiulan (over 40 years old). Policewoman Wang Dongyun was the one who was the most enthusiastic about persecuting the practitioners.

    At the end of 2003, 57-year-old practitioner Duan Yuzhen from Huhhot City refused to write the "three guarantees" and was hung up with her hands and feet outstretched for 5 days and 5 nights. Her hands were completely numb from nerve damage after she was finally let down, and she could no longer take care of herself. Half a year later, her hands gained slight mobility. Under this condition the policewomen forced her to work. She had to sew 160 gloves a day. At that time, Duan Yuzhen's hands could not hold the tool and even could not hold a small spoon well. She had to endure extreme pain to bend each finger.

    In November 2003, Zhu Xiaoying, 24-year-old nurse and a practitioner from Huhhot City, practitioner Wang Weihua from Chifeng City, and three other practitioners enlightened that it was not right to write the three guarantees, so they tore up the letters. They were all hung up by the policewomen Wang Dongyun, Wu Jing and Wang Xiulan. Due to the electric shocks, two thirds of their bodies were covered in blood blisters. The police especially shocked the genitals and the brain. It was extremely sinister. Up until April 2004, Zhu Xiaoying did not have any feeling in the nerves of her hands.

    The policewomen forced the practitioners to work from 5:30 a.m. until midnight. The practitioners were forced to work for 16.5 hours every day without a break; they were forced to eat their meals in the workshop. The workshop is very filthy and greasy, with dirt, fuzz and dust covering everything. They had to make 3,400 glove pockets and knit 312 gloves a day, which represents a huge workload.

    Four Falun Gong Practitioners from Liaoning, Hebei, and Heilongjiang Provinces Die from Persecution


    1. Mr. Chen Jixiang was 46 years old and lived in Yongling Town of Xinbin Township, Fushun City, Liaoning Province. Mr. Chen's job was to fluff the cotton stuffing in quilts. Before Mr. Chen started practicing Falun Gong, he had various diseases. His abdomen hurt all the time and he had diarrhea 6-7 times a day. There was blood and pus in his stool. Though he visited many famous hospitals, he was never cured. Mr. Chen also had a very bad temper. The neighbors knew that he often beat his wife. He weighed about 108 pounds, smoked, drank and fought with his wife after drinking. Sometimes he would cry for no reason and his daughter was often afraid. His family lived a hard life.

    Mr. Chen started practicing Falun Gong in July 1997. He then understood the principles of how to be a good person. He began living by those principles and became very healthy. He quit smoking and drinking and his family life became peaceful. He no longer sold used fluffed old cotton for the price of new cotton.

    After the persecution against Falun Gong started, the police arrested Mr. Chen five different times and sent him to a brainwashing center once. Each time they tried to force him to renounce Falun Gong. In August 1999, Mr. Chen went to the local government and then to Beijing to validate the Fa. After he returned from Beijing, Director Zhang Rongqing of the Yongling Police Station sent him to a brainwashing center. Zhang also ordered Mr. Chen to be brought to the police station every day to clean the glass windows, remove weeds, wash quilts and process bed covers. Mr. Chen did not receive any pay for his work. The police station fined him 200 yuan before he was released.

    On September 11, 1999, Zhang Rongqing and others from the Yongling Police Station again arrested Mr. Chen and placed him in a detention center. The prisoners there beat him until his face swelled up so much that he couldn't eat. The beating also injured his back. Under this severe torture, Mr. Chen compromised and paid 4,000 yuan to be released.

    In August 2000, Guo Huawei and others from the Yongling Police Station arrested Mr. Chen for the third time and again put him in a detention center. Mr. Chen was awakened before dawn to cut wood and process ginseng. Mr. Chen finally succumbed to the persecution and wrote a guarantee statement never to practice Falun Gong again and paid a 3,000 yuan fine to be released.

    In December 2000, Officer Wang Yongping and others from the Xinbin County Police Department broke into Mr. Chen's home to confiscate his property. The police confiscated an answering machine, an incense burner and 7000 yuan in cash. Once again, they took Mr. Chen to a detention center. This time Mr. Chen's family spent 3000 yuan on presents to bribe the police for his release.

    Twenty days after Mr. Chen returned home and one day before the Chinese New Year, Guo Huawei and policemen from the Yongling Police Station came to arrest him again. He was imprisoned for more then 10 days. On February 1, 2001, the police put Mr. Chen in the Fushun City Brainwash Center. They forced Mr. Chen to "transform" again by torturing him. One month later, they extorted more than 10,000 yuan from him to gain his release.

    In the fall of 2003, Officers Guo Huawei and Cao Sixin from the Yongling Police Station arrested Mr. Chen. They took him to Fushun City's Luotai mountain village to brainwash him.

    After Mr. Chen was released from the Luotai mountain village brainwashing center, his eyes started to itch severely. A month later, the severe itching moved to his neck. Later, he felt uncomfortable in his chest, like his esophagus was being blocked. The hospital diagnosed it as uremia. Chen died on August 20, 2005.

    Mr. Chen's daughter is in college now and his son is in high school. The whole family depended on him to bring in money.

    2. Mr. Wang Tiliang, 66 years old, was a Falun Gong practitioner from the Fengrun District in Tangshan City, Hebei Province. Mr. Wang started to practice Falun Gong in 1996 and benefited from the practice. After the persecution started on July 20, 1999, Mr. Wang insisted on continuing the practice. The police station and his work place constantly harassed him. Someone reported him to the police when he was delivering truth clarification materials about Falun Gong. At about 12:10 p.m. on August 25, 2001, more than ten people from the district's police department and police station broke into his home and confiscated his property. The police tried to take the 67,000 yuan cash Mr. Wang had saved for his son's wedding and housing. Mr. Wang tried to stop them, but they arrested him and locked him in a detention center. He did not get any food for twenty days out of four months. Mr. Wang was as thin as a stick when his work place bailed him out. The police department still withheld 5,000 yuan from him. Mr. Wang was extremely traumatized and had difficulty eating. He died on August 25, 2005.

    3. Ms. Zhang Guizhi, 72 years old, lived in the Fengrun District of Tangshan City in Hebei Province. Ms. Zhang started practicing Falun Gong in 1996 and was healthy from then on. After the persecution started on July 20, 1999, officials from the neighborhood administration office and the residential committee went to her home many times to confiscate her books, harass her and force her to write a guarantee statement to renounce Falun Gong. Ms. Zhang was easily intimidated to begin with and got even more scared from the constant persecution. She died on July 21, 2005, from fear caused by the persecution.

    4. Ms. Liu Qianqian, 33 years old, was a Falun Gong practitioner from Shangzhi Town of Shangzhi City in Heilongjiang Province. In 2002, before the Dragon Boat Festival, Ms. Liu went to Hedong Township, Shangzhi City to sell vegetables and clarify the truth. Someone reported her. Later, officers from Shangzhi City's 610 Office arrested her. They secretly sentenced her to three years in prison and locked her up in the Heilongjiang Province Women's Prison. While in the Women's Prison, she was forced to work beyond her physical ability every day and was subjected to brainwashing.

    Ms. Liu weighed less than 50 lbs. when she was released and allowed go home. She weighed more than 90 lbs when she was arrested. Her skin was tightly wrapped against her skull and her veins showed. Her esophagus and stomach were infected. Her family paid over 5,000 yuan for treatment at a hospital. However, on August 6, 2005, just five days later, she died at the Jinzhou Hospital. The details are still under investigation.

    Six Dafa Practitioners Die as a Result of Persecution

    ( Ms. Bao Fengjuan, 39, was from Beiyingzi Village of Daoerdeng Town, Lingyuan City, Liaoning Province. She had all sorts of illnesses before practicing Falun Gong, but all her physical problems disappeared not long after she started the practice. She went to Beijing to appeal to the authorities against the persecution of Falun Gong in 2000. She was arrested and detained at the Daoerdeng Police Station. Policemen grabbed her hair, violently pushed her, and struck her head against a concrete wall many times, causing severe head injuries. Her speech was incomprehensible from that time on. She never recovered, even after she was sent home, and she couldn't live a normal life. She was unable to tell day from night, unable to look after herself, and often ran away from home for days for no reason. She passed away on August 19, 2005.

    Mr. Zhang Qingfeng, 69, was from Sandaoliangzi Village of Daoerdeng Town, Lingyuan City, Liaoning Province. He used to suffer from terminal lung cancer. He began practicing Falun Dafa in 1997 and by the end of 1998, his lung cancer completely disappeared and he was able to live and work as a normal person. After the persecution of Falun Gong practitioners began on July 22, 1999, Mr. Zhang was harassed day and night. He was forced to write the Three Statements and give his fingerprints. He was badly hurt mentally and physically. As he was unable to practice Falun Gong again, his lung cancer came back and he died that same year.

    Ms. Li Suying, 74, was from Nangongyingzi Town, Kezuo County, Liaoning Province. Local policemen frequently ransacked her home, making her extremely upset. Her physical health deteriorated quickly. Under continuous intimidation and harassment, she passed away on July 19, 2005.

    Ms. Xu Meijing, 67, from Meilong Village, Xuhui District, Shanghai City, used to suffer from severe diabetes before she began practicing Falun Gong.

    September 15, 2005

    Dr. Qi Xufang from the Weihai City Health and Epidemic Prevention Station Dies as a Result of Persecution

    ( Ms. Qi Xufang, 61, was a physician at the Weihai City Health and Epidemic Prevention Station in Shandong Province. She retired in 2000, and lived in Xinghua Village, Huancui District, Weihai City, Shandong Province. She benefited immensely after she began practicing Falun Dafa in 1997. Her work unit pressured her to quit the practice many times after the persecution began on July 20, 1999.

    Practitioners Exchange Experiences and Insights

    An Indomitable Spirit Resists Persecution and Torture, and Persists in Clarifying the Truth


    I. Encountering Falun Dafa and "Obtaining the Fa"

    In early 1998, I went to visit my parents, who were always prone to sickness. I went to their workplace to see them. I entered their room and found my father with a happy smile and looking very healthy. He had been ill for many years. I asked, "Dad, what restored your health? Did you take some elixir?" My father answered, "I have obtained the Fa." I asked, "What Fa? May I have a chance to read the Fa?"

    My father said, "Certainly. Here is the heavenly book, Zhuan Falun." I asked, "Is this the Qigong you were practicing before?" My father said, "No! This is Falun Gong."

    I opened the book to read Lunyu and finished reading it in one breath. I spent a few days reading through Zhuan Falun. I said, "Dad, I spent forty years of my life on nothing meaningful. I didn't know who I was or what the meaning of my life was. Now Master has explained all of this to me. I am determined to cultivate Dafa diligently, follow Teacher and return to my true home."

    From then on, I was actively involved in spreading Dafa, studying the Fa and doing the exercises at our local practice site. One day I had a free afternoon at work. I made the best use of my time by studying the Fa. I laid my head on the desk and took a short break when I was tired. I entered the state of tranquility and saw countless Faluns spinning like electric fans in another dimension. I thought Teacher was encouraging me with scenes in other dimensions. I was very moved. I didn't even dare to move a little bit. I was afraid the scene in front of me would disappear if I moved.

    II. I am a Fa-rectification Disciple Living Here in the Human Realm

    In early 2000, I was held at a detention center with a fellow practitioner. Staff from the 610 Office had Ruan Chang'an, a Longchang County Dafa coordinator who had been "transformed", write to us. I read the letter and rejected his words. The 610 Office staff then sought to have my husband come and persuade me. I told them about the fundamental principles a human being should follow. Once, the 610 Office staff and my husband tried to transform me in a joint effort. As soon as I entered the visiting room of the detention center, my husband punched me in the face without a word. His job is doing basic repairs and the labor is physically demanding. He is very strong. The heavy blow caused blood to burst forth from my nose immediately.

    The 610 Office staff changed their tactics upon seeing that physical means would not move me. Two days later, my husband came to visit me again. He knelt down as soon as he saw me. He begged, "I will never beat you again. Please come home with me." I laughed and responded, "You may remain kneeling as long as you wish. In the past, I would not have been able to handle this situation. Now I can." He stood up, knowing it was no use.

    One day my fellow practitioner, who was being detained in the same cell as me, told me she wrote a repentance statement. She did so because she wanted to get out of the detention center. I asked, "You obtained the Fa earlier than I did. What does Dafa require of us? As a practitioner, what should be done and what cannot be done? Isn't it obvious? If you write a repentance statement, who are you being responsible to?" She remained silent.

    During my detention, I clarified the truth to other detainees. They all learned that Dafa is good. They studied the Fa and practiced the exercises with me.

    III. Validating Dafa with My Own Conduct

    I clarified the truth to people in all kinds of environments. The 610 Office staff sent me to a mental hospital. Their purpose was two-fold. One was to torture me, and the other was to isolate me from others. They were also afraid I might go to Beijing to appeal on behalf of Falun Dafa. Doctor Wang Youfang at the mental hospital collaborated with the 610 Office staff. She knew I was mentally healthy, but she insisted on saying that I had schizophrenia. She would tell others that I had schizophrenia when I tried to talk to them. She would say I had melancholia when I recited Teacher's articles silently.

    In the mental hospital, I did cleaning, helped patients take baths, washed their clothes and fed them their meals. One day, when I was feeding a patient, she suddenly knocked me down and tore my clothes. She beat me with her fists until the doctors hurried over and dragged her away. They found I was still holding her meal bowls tightly so that they would not spill. Very soon, the doctors and nurses changed their opinion of me. Sometimes, they listened while I clarified the truth to them and the patients.

    On May 1, Labor Day in China, my father came to visit me. At noon, we were talking when we heard someone yell for help. I found a patient who had hung herself with pants tied to the metal frame of a window. Her face had already turned very red. I immediately laid her down on the floor and began mouth to mouth. I didn't stop until she began to breathe. After emergency treatment, she was okay. Since then, the patients in the mental hospital treat me even better. They all know I am a good person. I thus validated Dafa with my own conduct.

    IV. One Righteous Thought Subdues a Hundred Evils

    When the evil authorities still failed to change our righteous beliefs, they were so desperate that they would do anything. They wrote down Teacher's teachings on a blackboard and let Yao Jianhua interpret the teachings with her warped understanding. We were required to use her logic in a speech. They called this method, "using the Fa to do away with the Fa." Practitioners Peng Shiqiong, Liu Fengxia, Liu Zongying, Wang Huiying, Zhu Yaohui and I took this rare opportunity to tell them our cultivation stories.

    Liu Fengxia recited Teacher's lecture at the 2002 Washington DC Fa conference. It was very encouraging. Practitioners who had gone astray restrained themselves when we were present.

    Liu Fengxia is a woman from the countryside. She rode a bike to Beijing to appeal for Falun Dafa. She rode several thousand miles and endured many hardships along the way. On her way to Beijing, she clarified the truth to many people.

    Liu Zongli told others, "I am illiterate, so I am not good at sharing the principles. I only know Teacher is great and Dafa is great. I will never betray Teacher or Dafa."

    Wang Huiying shared how she remained unperturbed in the face of conflicts based in "qing". Once her son came to visit and said that her refusal to give up practicing Falun Dafa in the forced labor camp was the reason all her daughters-in-law filed for divorce and left the family. Her sons lost their jobs in a government department because she was firm about practicing. Wang Huiying, out of her benevolence, understood their feelings. However, she was not swayed by qing. She explained the principles and her reasoning to them.

    V. Righteous Thoughts Demonstrate Divine Power

    On January 10, 2002, I was transferred to the police station of the Gaosishan Oil & Construction Corporation in Neijiang City from the Women's Forced Labor Camp of Sichuan Province. The persons in charge of Falun Gong practitioners interrogated me.

    One of them asked, "What's your name?" I replied, "What are you trying to do?" He said, "We are going to keep a record and establish an archive. We will monitor your conduct and you must cooperate with us." I replied, "Great. Write down what you will do to me on a piece of paper, then stamp it with the official seal and sign your name. I'll see you in court. Do write down these words and do not deny them when I meet you in front of a judge. Spoken words do not count and you guys always tell lies. So write down all the actions you are going to take against me on paper." He went out of the room to check with his supervisors. In a short while, he came back and he didn't mention another word about records.

    I took advantage of the opportunity to clarify the truth to them. I told them that they should live for the truth and that they should distinguish between good and bad. He replied, "I don't care about truth. I serve whoever pays me." I then told them about the evil persecution imposed on Falun Dafa by the CCP. I said, "Jiang Zemin persecutes Falun Gong. He is doomed." He was frightened and didn't say anything. He asked me to go home immediately.

    Once when I was detained in the mental hospital, county 610 Office staff and a cadre came to interrogate me. The director of the county 610 Office, Ye Lin, talked to me in a threatening manner. "We are here today to target your problems specifically. You must cooperate with us." I laughed and replied, "This is so weird. The police station and 610 Office sent me to a mental hospital. The doctors regard me as a mental patient. They give me injections and force me to take drugs against my will. Now you want to interrogate me, which means you regard me as a criminal. However, you cannot send me to a prison even though you consider me a criminal, because I didn't commit any crime. If you consider me a mental patient, then there's no such a thing as interrogating a mental patient. A mental patient cannot bear legal responsibility for his conduct. Or, it could well be that you two are mental patients, which explains why you aren't using logic and conduct yourself in a crazy way." He was left speechless and rushed to end the interrogation.

    On June 15, when the staff from the Longchang County 610 Office and the Longchang County CCP Committee came to take me back to my hometown, I told them the above story. I said, "Is our government being responsible for anyone? I, an innocent person, was incarcerated in the mental hospital three times, held in a detention center twice, transferred to the center twice, and sent to forced labor camp twice. The authorities have persecuted me for almost six years. The government didn't investigate my case until I was tortured, persecuted, homeless and left without a single penny." "Shouldn't you think it over?"

    The cadre from the 610 Office replied, "You have been detained for three years. You don't know that the Falun Gong followers now openly act against the CCP and the government." I explained, "We are only fighting for basic human rights and for a peaceful cultivation environment. We only want to be a good people. Does that constitute a crime? As an innocent person, I was incarcerated for six years. How do you justify that?" They were left speechless and didn't dare say one more word.

    Falun Dafa Saved My Cousin's Life When She Was on the Verge of Death


    I was persecuted for cultivating Falun Dafa. I was forced to become homeless and went to the home of one of my cousins in the countryside.

    On July 8, 2005, while I was staying in my cousin's home, another cousin's husband called. He said that his wife, my cousin, suffered a severe hemorrhage in the brain and was hospitalized. We hurried to the county hospital. It was already noon, and my cousin was unconscious. The CT scan showed that she had cerebral bleeding. The doctor warned my cousin's husband to be prepared for the worst. Since the bleeding could not be stopped by surgery and the bleeding was heavy, the prognosis was poor. By that time, all her family members had arrived at the hospital.

    I had been a nurse for over 20 years, and I knew that my cousin was on the verge of death. I went over to her bed and whispered to her, "Sister, if you genuinely remember that Falun Dafa is great, it can save your life. Please answer me if you hear me." She heard me and answered. Everyone present also heard her. At around 4 p.m., she seemed to regain consciousness. In the evening, she had digestive tract bleeding and spat up blood twice. The next morning, she was fully conscious. Doctors checked and found that her arms and legs and her grasping ability seemed normal. Her speech and swallowing ability also seemed to be normal. In addition to that, she retained her short and medium term memory. Twenty days later, she walked out of the hospital by herself from the third floor. Everyone was surprised by her recovery.

    When my cousin recalled her experience in the coma, she remembered that she was on a road. There was only she and I. She lay on the road. I knelt down on the ground and asked her to remember, "Falun Dafa is great." She said she promised to remember it. She had no other recollections. My cousin then realized that it was Falun Dafa that had saved her life. All of her family members are very grateful to Falun Dafa.

    A Political Science Professor in Taiwan Discovers Falun Gong (Photo)

    ( Professor Ming Chu-Cheng says that when he was young, he was in very good health and in better shape than most people his age. He could run faster, jump higher and was stronger than many of his peers. When he was in military service, he was pretty good at playing basketball and was once promoted to be a team member at the corps level in the army. However, as his academic career got busier later on, he became more and more occupied by his daily work. As soon as he completed his Ph. D. in political science from Notre Dame University in the U.S., he returned to the University of Taiwan as a lecturer in the Department of Political Science. Meanwhile he worked on a part-time basis for four other Non-Government Organizations, and every organization required a lot of work. He was assigned an office, assistants, a car and a driver by each of the organizations. Professor Ming later became the Dean of the Department of Political Science of the University of Taiwan, and his added administrative duties made his life even busier.

    Professor Ming Chu-Cheng demonstrating the fifth exercise---the sitting meditation

    With the gradual increase in his workload and age, Professor Ming began to feel a decline in his health.. From his thirties to his forties, his health went from bad to worse, and more physical problems began to emerge. First, he found it very difficult to sleep and easily got tired. When he went to bed at night, he simply couldn't sleep and his mind was full of things about his work, and he couldn't relax his active mind. Secondly, he developed a pain on the right side of his lower abdomen, and the color of his urine turned very yellow and often had blood in it. His poor physical condition also had an impact on his emotional state. From time to time he found himself arguing with his wife over trivial matters, and he lost his temper easily. Their relationship also became difficult.

    Experiencing Enormous Benefit

    Professor Ming smiles when he says that he started to practice Falun Gong initially because of his wife's poor health. They were looking for ways to improve her health. In the end, through their friend's recommendation and introduction, he finally decided to practice Falun Gong. From the healthy look and rosy cheeks of his wife who was standing by him, I can tell she must be in very good health now.

    Professor Ming continued:" I took up the exercise together with my wife. Within a year or so, my benefit from it was huge. My sleeplessness disappeared, and now it takes less than 10 minutes before I can be in sound sleep. My mental state is naturally better as a result. The pain on my right side of the lower abdomen is gone and so is the occurrence of blood in my urine. What is more, all these wonderful things happened naturally without any mental striving, just like what is stated in the main book of Falun Gong Zhuan Falun: 'Attaining naturally without pursuit.'

    "At the same time, I no longer quarrel with my wife, as we are both practitioners now. So whenever we are at odds with each other, we are able to recognize our own faults and therefore able to step back and think of the other person first. Thus, our relationship is stronger and each of us is able to better care for the other person. Furthermore, since becoming a practitioner, I am able to clearly sort out the things I have to do efficiently despite the fact that I still have a heavy workload."

    It is Wrong to Persecute Falun Gong Practitioners

    Professor Ming stated that what Falun Gong emphasizes is the upgrading of one's xinxing level. It has no organization, no religious rituals and nobody is obliged to join. Anyone can come in at any time and leave it any time. Furthermore, before the persecution in China, Falun Gong practitioners, after any large-scale exercises, would pick up garbage on the ground before leaving quietly. Jiang Zemin, however, thought that Falun Gong must have a very tight organizational structure and that it would be difficult for them to control. Besides, Jiang and others in the CCP wrongly assumed that Falun Gong was challenging the Communist Party for the masses because the CCP, in its 50 year history, had only managed to attract over 60 million members, while Falun Gong within just a few years had attracted more than 100 million people. Therefore, the totalitarian Communist regime couldn't tolerate the fact that so many people chose to follow "Truthfulness, Compassion and Forbearance" and decided to use its entire state machinery to exert its brutal control.

    Professor Ming shared two points of his observation: First, Falun Gong is very righteous. Second, Falun Gong is magnificent. Professor Ming quoted from the official Communist statistics before the persecution regarding Falun Gong's high efficacy in curing diseases. The official Chinese statistics reported that out of 34,351 Falun Gong practitioners, 98% had their illnesses improved or completely cured. This is very surprising indeed. From his field of study, the political behavior of the Chinese Communist regime, Professor Ming, also analyzed the reasons why Jiang Zemin launched the persecution against Falun Gong. His conclusion is that this individual's greed for power and desire to maintain his power had made him unstable and that he would regard any organization, religion or belief as a threat to his power.

    Last but not least, Professor Ming hopes that everyone will try his recommendation to practice Falun Gong. It is, according to Professor Ming, "the best treatment in life," as it can also help one to become a good person.

The practitioners were completely caught off guard. They were put in a vehicle at 6:30 a.m. and taken to the Tailai Prison, after a whole day of driving. The next day, they were forced to do slave labor. On the sixth day after the transfer, the guards told the practitioners, "We held a three-day meeting to discuss the persecution of Falun Gong. We are assigned quotas to "reform" Falun Gong practitioners. If the practitioners don't write "guarantee statements", we'll be fired and we'll have to turn in our uniforms."

    They shackled Falun Gong practitioners and tied steel bars on their feet. They didn't allow the practitioners to sleep at night and hung them up, with their feet barely touching the ground.

He returned home during the Chinese New Year and the police arrested him again. He was released after they extorted 5,000 Yuan from him.

    Mr. Liu Zhenguo was sent to the Huangjintun Forced Labor Camp. He was a little slow when eating lunch, so the guards knocked out his front teeth. Pressured by the guards, he reluctantly wrote a guarantee statement and was released in July or August 2004. In early 2005, after he went home, the head of the local police department went to his home and said to him, "Don't go anywhere; just practice [Falun Gong] at home." At 6:00 p.m. on February 2, 2005, several officers from the Pingdingbu Police Department saw five practitioners doing the exercises. They phoned the Tieling County Police Department, which dispatched several officers who went to Mr. Guo's home and arrested five people: Ms. Xu Yajie, Ms. Song Lianzhi, Ms. Liu Ying, Mr. Guo Lianyang and Mr. Liu Zhenguo. The officers found Dafa books and materials. They took the five people to the Pingdingbu Police Department and sent them to the Babaoling Custody Center in Tieling County overnight. Ms. Liu Ying was returning from her boyfriend's home but the police lied and said she left town to distribute truth clarification materials.

    At the custody center, the police interrogated Mr. Guo and asked about the source of the Dafa materials. The police savagely beat him and shocked him with electric batons until the batons broke. Mr. Guo could not walk afterwards. They extorted 5,000 Yuan from each of three female practitioners. They were then released several days after writing guarantee statements. Mr. Guo and Liu Zhenguo were sentenced to three years of forced labor and are currently being held at the Lingdong Forced Labor Camp.

    ( 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:
