Solemn Declarations from Dafa Practitioners
I went to Beijing together with fellow practitioners to validate the Fa at the end of 2000. However, due to my lack of Fa study and my attachments to showing off, jealousy etc, I entered Tiananmen Square with the strong mindset of an ordinary person. After I returned home, fear and my strong attachment to seeking comfort got the better of me. I was afraid that I would be expelled from my school, my family would break up and my classmates would not understand me. I complied with the evil and wrote a shameful guarantee statement, as well as disclosing information on fellow practitioners. Facing the tears and sadness of my family members, I wrote the "guarantee statement" again and again as required by the evil. I slipped back to the realm of an ordinary person, and was completely lost in human sentimentality, and seeking fame and profits. My parents are steadfast Falun Gong practitioners. They advised me to write a solemn statement to negate the arrangement of the old forces and cultivate Dafa afresh. However, I did not take their words seriously. After that, I often helped them with Dafa work, but seldom studied the Fa, practiced the Dafa exercises or sent forth righteous thoughts. My mother said that I was merely doing Dafa things as an ordinary person, and urged me to study the Fa more. But I retorted with unkind words unbecoming of a Dafa practitioner. Later, I obtained a computer and often logged onto Dafa websites. Through Fa study, I became more and more clear on the Dafa principles and my heart was pained when I thought about what I had done before. I hereby solemnly declare all that I had written and said in the "guarantee statements," and all that I had done that were not in accord with Dafa to be null and void. I will negate the arrangement of the old forces by doing well the three things and cultivating diligently.

I went to the city to clarify the facts, and was arrested by the city police and the 610 office. On May 6, 2006, I was sent to the city's first detention center without any legal procedure. Forty days later, on June 14, 2006, I was transferred to a labor camp, where I was subjected to torture and brainwashing. I was forced to verbally abuse Dafa and Teacher, and to write statements to denounce Falun Gong. I was forbidden to sleep all day and all night, and was not allowed to use the toilet. I was not provided with enough food or water. I was injected with unknown drugs and the food and water were laced with unknown drugs. Everyday I was forced to do a lot of assignments to abuse Falun Gong and Falun Gong Teacher. If I refused, I would be tortured. They shocked my ears with electric batons, hung me up with my hands cuffed behind my back for 1 to 3 days and deprived me of food, water and sleep. If I dozed off, they would tape my eyelids to my eyebrows to keep my eyes open, or drop liquid medicine containing menthol into my eyes to sting me and keep me awake, or beat my head viciously with hard plastic soles, and force me to stand up for several days. If I called out "Falun Dafa is good. Truthfulness, Compassion and Tolerance is good", they would stuff my mouth with a dirty cloth or sanitary napkin and seal my mouth with wide tape wrapped around my neck several times. Sometimes I was forced to stay motionless in a crouching position or standing position. I hereby solemnly declare that all I had done and said to comply with the evil during my detention are null and void. I will return to my cultivation and do well the three things.
