Latest News from China
Today, 192 practitioners issued solemn statements. Initially, they did not see clearly the nature of the persecution from the perspective of Dafa. Under the strong pressure of the persecution, they did things that a Dafa disciple should not do. With the solemn statements, they now declare that all their words and actions that were harmful to Dafa are completely void. From now on, they will be dignified disciples who will redouble their efforts to compensate for the losses they have caused to Dafa.
Hewan Forced Labor Camp in Wuhan City encouraged the prisoners to beat and abuse Dafa practitioners, and arranged several collaborators who had enlightened along an evil path to torment one practitioner by not allowing him to sleep. Dafa practitioner, Peng Weisheng, has endured the tragedies of having both his son, Peng Min, and his wife, Li Yingxiu, tortured to death. In addition, his eldest son, Peng Liang, is illegally detained in the second division, Seventh Section of the City Public Security Bureau. His daughter, Peng Yan, was arrested and is still being detained.
On the eve of December 25, in Hefei City Government Square, a hydrogen balloon dropped on a car that contained fireworks. A violent explosion occurred that lasted for about 15 minutes and many people were injured. It was the evil police in Hefei City who set up this disaster. Their cruel persecution of Falun Gong has now involved the people. Recently, the local evil policemen persecuted 70-year-old Dafa practitioner, Zhang Duoyun, to death.
On December 19, CCTV news broadcast that Fu Yibin's father was in the hospital. People felt indignant because on December 17, CCTV just reported that Fu Yibin murdered his wife and his father and seriously injured his mother. How can Fu Yibin have another father? Isn't he already dead? I really cannot believe my eyes.
Around 5:20 p.m. on December 25, on my way back to Wuhan City from Xinzhou, I and hundreds of others saw five UFOs appearing at the same time, with tails of unequal length, flying in the same direction. It was quite a marvelous sight. Hundreds of people passing by witnessed this unusual phenomenon.
A Practitioner in Taiwan:
I suffered from osteoporosis and was in excruciating pain. I tried both Western and Chinese medicine, but neither of them helped. However, after I practiced Falun Gong, I discovered with surprise that I could squat again. My heart changed and I actively participated in truth-clarifying activities with other practitioners, and the stubborn disease that had tortured me for over 30 years was completely cured.
The "sunset" is incomparably beautiful only because he practices Dafa.
A 77-year-old man gave up cultivation because of the slander spread by the media and by his fear of persecution, among other things. In November 2000 he went to Singapore for an experience-sharing meeting and was deeply moved. He stepped back onto the path of Dafa cultivation and his disease of many years disappeared. Now, he clarifies the truth every day and his daily life is very busy and fulfilling.
An elderly practitioner and I were arrested during a truth-clarification trip to the rural area outside of Beijing. The policemen at Dongxiaokou Police Station in Changping City verbally abused us and sent us to a detention center. While detained, we promoted Dafa to the inmates and did the exercises. A policeman beat the elderly practitioner for that but received immediate retribution. Some of the inmates were interested in the exercises and learned to do them. In mid August 2001, we began a hunger strike to protest our illegal detention. We were force-fed but were released nine days after that.
Practitioner Wang's Story of Fa-rectification
A policeman stopped practitioner Wang, suspecting that she was distributing truth-clarification materials. He asked her whether she was distributing the flyers, to which Wang answered, "Did you see me doing it?" The policeman probed further, "Are you a Falun Gong practitioner?" Wang retorted that there was nothing in writing on her to prove that. The policeman was outwitted and walked away. Wang was full of righteous thoughts and that was why she was able to handle a very tough situation.
On December 23, 2001, two young men harassed Wang and a few other practitioners, threatening to send them to the police station. Wang was very calm and said, "Good is returned with good, and evil meets with evil. What will be waiting for you if you send us to the police station?" Shaken by what she said, the young men let them leave.
In a city in Heilongjiang Province there is a group of little practitioners. Although they are young, they are at the forefront of cultivation and Fa-rectification. Two young practitioners saw that their parents were about to go out to distribute flyers clarifying the truth about Falun Gong. They held on to their parents' legs and said that they would not let go unless the parents took them along. While distributing the flyers, the children ran in front, and the parents could only send forth righteous thoughts as they trailed behind them.
It is difficult to encounter an opportunity for righteous cultivation in tens of thousands of years. Not a single encounter is coincidental. I was illegally detained for distributing literature clarifying the truth about Falun Gong. Each time the police interrogated me I answered them directly from the perspective of validating Dafa, pointing out their mistakes. I told them the principle of reward and retribution for good and evil respectively, and asked them to stop the persecution of Falun Dafa.

The young practitioners in Hiroshima, Japan saw a scene from other dimensions during a painting exhibition. The sky above the exhibition hall was covered by a huge Falun, rotating rapidly. Master?
