Those Dafa disciples who haven't lived in Mainland China find it hard to understand what goes on under the rule of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP). In particular, when the Dafa disciples from Mainland China and Dafa disciples in Mainland China renounce the various organizations of the CCP, they see that many Dafa disciples were Communist Party members, and they can't come to terms with it and think, "How could Dafa disciples be Communist Party members?" It is especially hard for Dafa disciples in non-Communist countries to understand. The reality is, in Mainland China, before Dafa disciples took up cultivation they, too, were educated in the Party's culture.
Falun Dafa Practitioners Mr. Wang Shiming and Ms. Wang Lanfen from Dalian City Are on Hunger Strike and In Critical Condition
On the evening of January 13, 2005, Falun Dafa practitioners Ms. Wang Lanfen and Mr. Wang Shiming, from Dalian City went to Qiange in the Ganjingzi District to clarify the truth. They were reported, arrested and taken to the Xinzhaizi Police Substation by three police officers and three security guards. The director of the Substation, Zhang Yunhai (male), sent them to the Yaojia Detention Center in Dalian City that same day. To protest the persecution, they have been on a hunger strike, without water, since their arrival more than 15 days ago. Their families went to the police substation to request their release, but were told that this case has nothing to do with them. Police Li Yongli (male), Pu Lian-guo (male), and Ge Guixing (male) even shouted at them, "Go talk to Jiang, we don't care if their lives are in danger."
(Clearwisdom.net) Dafa practitioner Mr. Shen Baoping of Kuitun City in Xingjiang was 32 years old. In 2001, Shen Baoping was arrested by a policeman named Yue Jiangmin. Baoping was illegally detained and tortured in many different ways. For example, he was hung up by both hands while his body was beaten mercilessly by Yue Jiangmin, who used electric batons, police clubs, and leather belts, until finally the torturer was exhausted. After that, in July 2001, Shen Baoping was transferred to Xiabahu prison in Changji City, Xinjiang. There, the prison guards continued to use various barbaric methods of torture. They often used electric batons, police clubs, as well as rubber sticks (steel bars covered with rubber designed to cause internal injuries) to beat him mercilessly. Shen Baoping suffered cruel beatings by both prison guards and prisoners every day. In the pouring rain, Shen Baoping was handcuffed from a basketball hoop for almost two days. Shen Baoping, who used to have a vigorous and healthy body weighing 70 to 80 kilograms, was tortured until he was just skin and bones. The prison guards also made use of ultra-intensive physical labor to devastate him and other Dafa disciples. Shen Baoping's firm faith in Dafa drove the prison guards and criminals into a frenzy, as they had been promised many benefits if they could transform him. His unyielding belief frustrated their ambitions and they hated the fact that they he would not go against his conscience, no matter what vicious methods they employed. In August 2004, Shen Baoping was finally mercilessly beaten to death by prison guards and criminals.
(Clearwisdom.net) Hou Peng, Presiding Judge of the No. 2 Courtroom in the Yaodu District Court in Linfen City, Shanxi Province, has held numerous trials against Falun Gong practitioners since the persecution against Falun Gong began on July 20, 1999. As a law enforcement official, Hou has framed Falun Dafa practitioners without adhering to the facts or following the laws and regulations. As a result, many Falun Dafa practitioners have been sent to prison and lost their jobs. One practitioner was forced to leave home and live a life of homelessness, eventually dying from the persecution after going through extreme hardships.
