(Clearwisdom.net) On February 27, 2000, thousands of people rioted in the small town of Yangjiazhangzi, Liaoxi District. They flipped over more than a dozen police vehicles. Hundreds of police did not know what to do. After about 30 hours, two thousand military police entered the town and used tear gas on the crowds. The same night, the 120th infantry division entered the district and imposed martial law. The situation has become known as the now famous February 27 Incident in Yangjiazhangzi.

Here I would like to reveal the facts about the authorities misrepresenting the truth while issuing military commands in an attempt to put the blame on Falun Gong.

The order mobilizing the 120th infantry division said, "Falun Gong practitioners are making trouble. Go and crack down on Falun Gong." Actually this incident had nothing to do with Falun Gong. During the spontaneous uprising of the people, none of those who were arrested, fined and put on trial were Falun Gong practitioners. The order was meant to be secret. However, after the 120th infantry division stayed in the town for one hundred days, the officers and soldiers had frequent contact with the local people and the information became common knowledge. They said, "Falun Gong practitioners are making trouble. We came to crack down on Falun Gong." Everybody in Yangjiazhangzi is aware of this. If anyone would mention this matter, people there would say, "They issued a military order to try to frame Falun Gong." Jiang's political gang used monetary and material resources to persecute the good people who follow "Truthfulness-Benevolence-Forbearance". It is against the will of millions of people.

Jiang's evil purpose:

1. To cover up the shameful act of ordering the people's army to crack down on the public.

2. To create a false impression in the military and to deceive them to become hostile toward Falun Gong, and thus divert attention away from their acts.

Regarding the February 27 incident, no Dafa practitioners participated. The authorities had no justification for their claims. Their foolish attempt to deceive people and put the blame on Falun Gong ultimately failed. From understanding this event, people can begin to see more clearly the deceitful tactics at work behind the fabrications Jiang's gang has created to persecute Falun Gong.
