A Practitioner from Taiwan: Practicing Falun Dafa purified my body and mind. Growing up, my family was very dysfunctional; my mother and father had a very bad relationship. As a result, I developed a horrible temper. Soon after I began practicing Falun Dafa, I changed - I learned to let go of my anger and I don't resent others any more.

The brutal persecution against nearly 100 practitioners in Hehuakeng Forced Labor Camp in Tangshan City of Hebei Province: Night and day, the guards at the forced labor camp play slanderous propaganda, use various torture methods, force practitioners to do hard labor, and play all kinds of devious mind games in an attempt to try to forcibly brainwash practitioners. Among other things, practitioners are forced to sit on boards for long periods of time in constrained positions. Those practitioners who have gone on a hunger strike were brutally forced fed. Since May 1, 2002, the camp officials have begun to deny practitioners sleep and forced them into brainwashing sessions.
Pressured by the totalitarian regime of China, the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region rushed to toss out the so-called Consultation Document regarding the implementation of Article 23 of the Basic Law. Under the pretext of protecting the country's safety, the Hong Kong government is targeting some special groups and endangering the basic human rights and freedom of the Hong Kong people. If the Hong Kong government keeps following the Chinese government and parroting the fabricated propaganda of the dictator, the democracy and the legal system that Hong Kong people have will soon disappear. The process by which the Hong Kong government is consulting the public on the implementation of Article 23 of the Basic Law is more like a marketing process, in which they are pushing things in the direction that the Chinese authorities have already decided. It is no wonder they are refusing all reasonable suggestions using all kinds of excuses.
A letter from a Dafa practitioner to the police: I am just trying to be a good person and I have done nothing wrong. However, for the past 3 years, you have never stopped harassing my family members and me. Even the elders and the young in my family are not spared. You are also persons with parents and children. If you put yourself in my shoes, would you realize that you have gone too far? Helping the evil do bad deeds can only bring suffering to you and your family members. In fact, those in power who do bad things are very scared and they are trying all means to leave a way out for themselves. Don't you want to plan for a bright future?
