(Clearwisdom.net) I am from Taipu Village in Bingcao Township, Shenzhou City, Hebei Province. My mother, Wang Xingjun, would be 55 years old this year, if she is still alive. She learned Falun Dafa back in 1995 and experienced a lot of positive changes, and the whole family enjoyed the happiness and harmony that her practice of Falun Dafa brought.

However, on July 20, 1999, the former Chinese president Jiang launched the campaign to suppress Falun Gong. My mother immediately went to Beijing to appeal on the same day, as she still had faith in the government. The police officers in Shenzhou City who were specially dispatched to various regions managed to stop her before she reached Beijing and they took her back home. Her second attempt to appeal in Beijing also failed, and she was sent back and fined 500 Yuan [equivalent to the average monthly salary in China]. "If you appeal one more time, you will be sentenced to labor camps," warned the police officers.

My mother was stunned. How could it be wrong to keep fit, believe in "Truthfulness-Benevolence-Forbearance," and strive to be a good person? After a while, she realized that what was on TV were nothing but lies to vilify Falun Gong. She was convinced that it was not wrong to go to Beijing to tell the government the truth or be a good person.

There is nothing wrong with letting people know the truth about Falun Gong either! So on December 8, 1999, she once again went to Beijing to appeal for Falun Gong. But since that day, we have heard nothing from her. We don't even know if she is still alive!

Now we know that it was Jiang Zemin who single-handedly orchestrated the persecution. It is Jiang who abused his power to launch the persecution, without the approval of the Political Bureau of the Central Committee, the People's Congress, or abiding by the Constitution.
