Solemn Declarations by Falun Dafa Practitioners
I started practicing Falun Gong in July, 2007. At that time my purpose of learning Falun Dafa was to rid myself of cancer. However, what I didn't expect was a totally new concept that Dafa unfolded before me. The theories had never been heard before and the purification of my body was magical. Questions that I have had for many years were answered clearly by the Fa. I was so happy to learn that Falun Gong is so good and magnificent, totally different from what China's media has said. In fact, the state run media were lying. Ever since then I embarked on the road to find my original, true self. Within a very short period of time, Master had purified my body, which enabled me, someone who was approaching death, to experience the wonder of having a completely healthy and energetic body. However, because I didn't spend enough time studying the Fa and didn't have a deep understanding of the principles, I didn't truly cultivate myself and was taken advantage of by the evil. On April 4, 2008, I went to the police station to distribute truth clarification materials and was illegally arrested by the police there. In the detention center, I felt that my body was always being strengthened by a great power, and under Master's protection, I walked out of the detention center within five days. One day, police officers asked me and my relative, who had bailed me out, to go to the police station. There they asked me to copy a "guarantee" letter that my relative had written for me. Out of self-protection, fear, strong emotions and protecting my relative's reputation, as well as many other kinds of complicated attachments, I followed the requests of the police and copied the so-called "guarantee" letter and repentance statement.
My solemn declaration is that everything that I wrote in the police station is void. I will cultivate Dafa to the very end and I will doubly make up for the losses that I have brought to Dafa.

On August 14, 2008, officials from the local '610' office and state security office illegally arrested me and took me to a forced labor camp. I was illegally sentenced to one year of forced labor. In the labor camp, I was followed and monitored by someone every minute of the day. I was only allowed five minutes to wash my eating bowl and go to the toilet. Even before I entered the toilet, drug addicts, who were the prisoners assigned to watch me, would shout, "Hurry up! Hurry up!" If you moved slowly you would be cursed and shouted at. From the very beginning, I always heard cursing and defamatory words uttered by those who have gone astray. I was also forced to watch videos that slander Falun Gong and Master. Falun Gong practitioners from different cells are not allowed to see each other. If you don't do what they tell you, you will be punished in some way or another. Eventually my fear came out, and one month later, I gave up.
My solemn declaration is that all that I've said or done which does not conform to Dafa when I was in the forced labor camp is void. I will make up for the losses that I have brought to Dafa and cultivate to the very end.
