Latest News from China
I have witnessed the viciousness of the police in a forced labor camp as they tortured Dafa practitioners. Because a practitioner refused to write pledges denouncing Falun Gong he was sent to a forced labor camp for two years. The police also denied practitioners sleep for over 10 days. They beat them with rubber batons, causing loss of consciousness and vomiting. Most practitioners had black and blue marks on their hips and legs. By speaking about it I am breaking through the lies that Jiang's gang has spread at the U.N. Human Rights Conference.
The Battle between violence and faith---my 26 days in the detention center: I was kidnapped because I clarified the truth to the public. While in detention, I faced the tribulation calmly and staged a hunger strike to protest the illegal persecution. In addition, I kept on sending forth righteous thoughts to eliminate the evil. I was force fed many times. Each time, I resisted the force-feeding firmly. I did not cooperate with the evil. I refused to do hard labor, wear prisoner's uniform, have my pictures taken, or recite prison rules. I grabbed every opportunity to clarify the truth and promote Zhen-Shan-Ren to the prison guards. Later, I walked out the detention center nobly.
News from Overseas
(World Journal, May 6) After 5000 Falun Gong practitioners were arrested in March, the police in Yushu City of Jilin Province arrested at least 70 other practitioners without any legal procedures. Three days ago a piece of news verified a secret document had been issued. Signed by Jilin Province Public Security Bureau and the Superior Court, the secret document authorized the arbitrary arrest and detention of Falun Gong practitioners.
On April 25, "De Standaard", one of the major newspapers in Belgium reported Falun Gong practitioners' protest in front of the Chinese Embassy in Brussels. The report described the inhumane persecution, brainwashing, torture, and insults suffered by practitioner Zhao Ming while he was jailed in China.
Story of Righteous Thoughts
A practitioner sent forth righteous thoughts every hour when he made truth-clarification CDs. He also used his gong, (energy potency) developed by cultivating, to strengthen the CDs. When he was forced to leave home to avoid further persecution, he went to a village where he sent forth righteous thoughts with local practitioners whenever they distributed truth-clarification CDs to ordinary people. It was very effective. Soon, over 3,000 people from that village learned the truth of Falun Gong; thus, the evil lost their market.
