Central News Agency March 10th report: 50 Hong Kong Falun Gong practitioners held a peaceful sitting protest outside of the Chinese government liaison office in Hong Kong district. They requested that the Chinese government release the two detained Hong Kong practitioners Lu Bofeng and Zhu Keming.

Latest News From China

Today, 163 people published solemn announcements declaring that all that they have written, said and done while under the evil's forced brainwashing and high-pressure persecution that didn't conform to Dafa is completely void. From now on, they will dedicate their lives to making up for the losses they caused to Dafa, clarifying the truth to people and catching up with Teacher's Fa-rectification process.

Persecution in Jilin Province: The Jiutai Forced Labor Camp kidnapped almost 300 practitioners. The vicious police and prisoners used the "Dead Person's Bed," [A torture method where the four limbs of the practitioner are stretched out and tied to the four corners of an icy-cold metal bed. The practitioner cannot move at all. Neither is he allowed to get up to eat, drink, or go to the bathroom. This treatment would last from several hours up to more than a dozen days. This type of cruel torture causes severe damage to the practitioner both mentally and physically] and they hung up the practitioners for a long time while they were handcuffed. They beat practitioners with electric batons and sticks and unreasonably extended their terms. Yanji City Forced Labor Camp persecuted practitioners using methods like forcing practitioners to sit on a small wood stool (most practitioners' buttocks became injured because they sat too long), locking practitioners in an iron cage, locking them up in solitary compartment and unreasonably extending their terms. Many practitioners were beaten and injured and even disabled.

Group Discussion

An open letter to Changchun City Mayor Li Shu: For the past three years, local and central government TV stations have played Falun Gong-slandering reports for a long time. People were very happy to hear that a Falun Gong truth clarification program was shown on the Changchun cable TV network. The Changchun people were happy, excited and surprised. Mr. Mayor, you can conduct a survey and see how the people feel. Let the people's servants listen to their master's voice.

A public letter by Dafa practitioners from China People's Bank to the city party secretary: I was told I was incompetent at work simply because I practiced Falun Gong, and I probably won't get to keep my job, among other things, in the future. Shouldn't people be good? Don't they have the right to be healthy? Why do you have to make people lie, do wrong things and become hypocritical? Falun Gong practitioners all have good reputations and it is not wrong to believe in "Truth, Compassion, Tolerance."

We learned from Heshi Jade [Heshi was the name of a person who discovered an incomparably valuable jade and gave it to the emperor, who decided it was stone and had Heshi's hands chopped off. However, Heshi kept giving the jade to the next emperor after the first one died; the emperor eventually saw the jade was an invaluable treasure]. During the brutal persecution, Dafa practitioners didn't spare their lives and property. They went to Beijing to validate Dafa one after another. They used their hard-earned money to print flyers and to clarify the truth and expose the evil. They did all these for no other purpose but to save people who were deluded by lies. Some people still don't understand and have not yet awakened. They are like the people who thought Heshi was crazy. People! Please remember, "Truth, Compassion, Tolerance" is the foundation of your life.á

Views and Experiences in Fa-Rectification

Use righteous thoughts to eliminate attachments and turn away danger. Recently, the police in our area have desperately tried to arrest Falun Gong practitioners and forcibly brainwash them. They have made three attempts to arrest me, but each time they were unsuccessful. My own experiences have taught me to be more determined in believing in our Teacher and Dafa.

Video cameras can be used to promote Dafa and restrain the evil. In the afternoon of March 2, 2002, off to the side of the parade during the Indonesia Fa-conference, an agent from the Chinese Embassy used a camera to videotape the parade. A male practitioner thus lifted his camera to videotape that person. The agent then left the scene.

Cultivation Stories

On August 16, 2001, a Dafa practitioner surnamed Wang, from Meihekou City, fainted outside his company's entrance. Due to the fall, his head had a large bruise and he lost consciousness. Several doctors hurriedly inspected him, giving him an electrocardiogram, checking blood pressure, giving an electroencephalogram, but the results were all normal. After half a month, his body's condition was restored to normal. He deeply enlightened from his experience that Dafa had given him a second life.

One time I planned to clarify the truth to one of my old colleagues. When I asked his daughter for the address, I told her the true situation regarding Falun Gong. After she listened, she informed me that she had a family member who worked in the local police station. He did not believe the truth about Falun Gong. I immediately used the Fa to judge it and was not disturbed. After I came to my colleague's home, I clarified the truth to my colleague's wife, face-to-face. As a result, she repeatedly expressed her gratitude to me.
