Also in a Few Words

The article "Good People" doesn't use a lot of words, but it illustrates an underlying principle. Indestructible righteous faith in the cosmos's Truth forms benevolent Dafa disciples' rock-solid, Diamond-Like Bodies, it frightens all evil, and the light of Truth it emanates makes the unrighteous elements in all beings' thoughts disintegrate. However strong the righteous thoughts are, that's how great the power is. Dafa disciples are truly stepping forward out of ordinary humanness.

International Education Development (IED)'s Statement at the U.N.


Sub-Commission on the Promotion and Protection of Human Rights

Fifty-third session

Agenda item 6

August, 2001

International Education Development has followed the topic of terrorism and human rights for many years and we welcomed the appointment of the Sub-Commission' Special Rapporteur Mme. Koufa in 1996. ... We strongly agree with the Special Rapporteur that State terrorism in the form of government terror against its own people -- what she calls "terrorism from above" -- produces far more gross violations of human rights than any other form of terrorism. ...When a regime resorts to State terrorism, the international community can expect to be overwhelmed with cases under the international mechanisms and swamped with persons seeking asylum from that regime. Such is the case in China with the regime' violent assault on practitioners of Falun Gong.

Falun Gong Press Statement at UN World Conference Against Racism, Racial Discrimination, Xenophobia and Related Intolerance

DURBAN, SOUTH AFRICA - September 3, 2001 - At this UN conference, we hope to bring the world' attention to the plight of the Falun Gong practitioners in China, where peaceful citizens are being persecuted because of their traditional spiritual belief. Over the past two years, the Chinese Government has been, through its state-run media, instigating hatred against Falun Gong in an attempt to divide its own people. Such hate crimes and intolerance based on faith are in direct violation of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, which China has agreed to. We call on the international community to act immediately and help stop this senseless persecution, before more innocent lives are lost.
