It is already the third day of the one-week hunger strike in Toronto. Practitioners have appealed in front of the office building of the Canadian Foreign Minister. In the wind and snow, practitioners distributed urgent rescue appeal letters to people passing by. About one thousand people took the materials every day, and many said, "I support you, you must hold on to the end."
The Experience Sharing of the Practitioners
Review: coordination of Fa-rectification activities was discussed, especially on the issue of confidentiality. Note from the editors: With regards to the past and recent lessons, some practitioners who are responsible for creating Dafa materials raised the point of being responsible to Dafa and to fellow practitioners. It is important to cultivate one's speech in order to ensure that certain information are not carelessly disclosed, especially on the secrecy of such sites where Dafa materials are created. By observing the necessary precautions, Fa-rectification activities will flow more smoothly under the complicated and severe situations.
The experience of a mother and daughter who went to Beijing to clarify the truth: On November 13, 2001, my mother and I went to Tiananmen Square to safeguard Dafa. We unfurled our banners and shouted "Falun Dafa is good." Shortly after, we were kidnapped by the police. In the detention center, we went on a hunger strike to protest. Consequently, we were forcefed with salt water. We were able to let go of life and death. On the fifth day, my mother was released. On the eighth day, I was also released.
World Journal March 28 report from Ottawa: Two Falun Gong practitioners held a hunger strike that began on March 27 outside the Canadian Foreign Affairs Department to protest Jiang regime's recent persecution of Falun Gong in Changchun.

Latest News From China
Today, 106 people published solemn announcements declaring that all that they have written, said and done under the evil's forced brainwashing and high-pressure persecution that didn't conform to Dafa is completely void. From now on, they will do their best to make up for the losses they caused to Dafa, clarify the truth to people and catch up with Teacher's Fa-rectification process. á
Chinese people in North America said that CCTV (Chinese Central TV Station) has always spread lies. It puts on a show of peace and deludes the people. When the recent numerous protests held by laid-off workers attracted the world's attention, CCTV not only did not mention even a word about the protests, it elevated its slandering of Falun Gong practitioners who cultivate Truth, Compassion, Tolerance. CCTV can forget about its shoddy propaganda.
A letter from an imprisoned Falun Gong practitioner to his wife: Righteous thoughts and determined faith in Dafa have come back to my heart. Although no fellow practitioners are around, I don't feel lonely because I have the Fa. I can tell people around me the most righteous things through the simplest language, and most of them are happy to listen. I've been getting along with them very well, and they all respect me.
The evil will not get any help. The only trick that Jiang has now is to rob the common people's possessions without restraint and use overseas investments to build up a false impression of a booming economy. He uses the money to buy over a group of human dregs who are utterly devoid of conscience as "supporters." Once they find out that Jiang is not able to do them any good, these "supporters" will quickly change their position.
A letter from practitioners detained at the Guangzhou Chatou Forced Labor Camp to the Procuratorate. We are not allowed to practice Falun Gong here. We are handcuffed even for holding our hands upright in front of our chests. Our arms are stretched out to form a straight line or a "V" shape and cuffed on the bed frame. When we go on hunger strike, the police force-feed us through tubes. They sometimes don't even pull out the tube and tie us to the bed so that our hands and feet are unable to move. Under the pretense of being humanitarian, the authorities have in reality stepped up the persecution.
Some advice to all people in the world: The group led by Jiang Zemin and Luo Gan completely manipulates the mechanism of the government and controls the propaganda. It employs all the most vicious methods of persecuting innocent people used from the past until now, and from both the east and the west. But it cannot quash the seemingly weak practitioners who own no weapons, but merely try to be good people based on "Truthfulness, Compassion, and Tolerance." Please cherish the good opportunities that Dafa has given you and have a correct understanding and position toward Falun Dafa.
The cultivation stories of sixteen members of my family: My mother is sixty-six years old this year, and is a typical traditional Taiwanese woman. In early 1998, when I learned about the precious Dafa, the first one I wanted to introduce Dafa to was the person I cared about most, my mother. One day when my mother was holding the wheel at each side of the body (part of the second set of Dafa exercises)," a magical event occurred! Mother said, "Suddenly a flow of energy spread throughout my whole body." She felt very relaxed!
During my search for the truth I learned about Dafa. To be a practitioner one first needs be a good person, a better person and even rise to higher levels. Since learning Dafa, I made obvious improvement in my family life and the workplace. It was not easy for me to obtain Dafa as I only obtained Dafa after searching diligently for many years. Therefore I am eager to spread Dafa to those who are still searching for the truth as I used to.
