They will persistently cultivate Dafa and double their efforts to make up the loss they brought to Dafa. One middle school student pointed out in the announcement that the school put pressure on students to attack Dafa; otherwise the students would be expelled from school. There were several students expelled for this reason.
My experience under persecution: Zhang XX, Vice party secretary of Hanyang District, also has other titles. He is the Secretary of the District Politics and Law committee, and Vice Director of the district police department in Wuhan City. This person threatened, intimidated, beat and kicked, and used other reprehensible methods to torture me. He also arrogantly declared: "We are not members of the XX party but thugs. The police department director never blinks an eye regarding killing people..." I was put into the male prison cell, suffered being handcuffed behind my back, backward-tying using ropes and being kicked.
