Solemn Declarations by Dafa Practitioners
In October 2000, I was sentenced to one-year of forced labor for appealing in Beijing for Falun Gong.
The officers at the forced labor camp began brainwashing me a month later. Their 'helpers' (former Falun Gong practitioners who have gone astray due to brainwashing and torture) took turns talking with me. For four days, they kept coming. But I was very clear about the situation I was in and did not say a word. Then, someone I thought was a good practitioner and I admired came. I started talking with her. I did not treat the Fa as my Teacher. I thought that she was a better practitioner than I was, which gave the evils an opportunity to interfere. I signed the 'four statements' (promising not to practice Falun Gong, stating regret over practicing in the past, declaring separation from Falun Gong, and denouncing Falun Gong).
After I signed the statements, I felt immensely empty and extremely lost. I had no idea of how I should go on with my life. Fortunately I met another practitioner and we talked. I tried to memorize what Zhuan Falun and other Dafa books said. I also felt that Teacher was by my side during this difficult time. Through all this, I was awakened.
I am deeply remorseful for what I have done. I hereby solemnly declare that the 'four statements' that I signed to denounce Dafa are null and void. I vow to join other practitioners again in clarifying the truth, saving the sentient beings and fulfilling my mission as a practitioner. I will assist Teacher in rectifying the Fa. I would like to urge those who have gone astray to awaken to the Fa and follow Teacher again.

In June 2002, I was sentenced to one-year forced labor for upholding my faith. Due to my various fundamental attachments and a lack of understanding of Dafa, I voluntarily accepted the evil's arrangement to enlighten along their path. Misguided by my zealotry and show-off mentality, I was used as a major tool by the evil and did a lot of harm to Dafa through helping them and "brainwashing" other practitioners.
Rescued by other practitioners and through studying Dafa, I regained my rationality and was full of remorse. I treasured Dafa more than my own life, yet I had humiliated Dafa and did a lot of harm in my moments of confusion. I feel immensely sorry for what I have done to practitioners who have been brainwashed by me. I hope that they will awaken to the destructive nature of the evil and join other practitioners again in Fa-Rectification. Here, I would like to solemnly declare that all my oral and written statements made to denounce Dafa are null and void, and all my letters and documents written to my work unit, detention centers, security departments and individuals are invalid. Starting from now on, I will try my utmost to make up for my wrongdoings. I vow to assist Teacher in the Fa-Rectification, clarify the truth, expose the evil and seriously cultivate myself.

On July 20, 1999, I went to Beijing to appeal for Dafa. In Tiananmen Square, I voluntarily accepted an illegal arrest. At the local police station of my city, I signed a document agreeing to give up my practice. After I was released, I went to Beijing again within a few days. I voluntarily accepted the unlawful arrest again. I signed the "Guarantee Statement" in the police station and said a lot of things to harm Dafa.
I would like to solemnly declare that all my oral and written statements to denounce Dafa are null and void. I did not do justice to Teacher's benevolence to me. I vow to stand up from my falls and be a true practitioner worthy of Dafa's name. I will make up for my mistakes, clarify the truth, seriously cultivate myself, follow the progress of Fa-Rectification, and be a true and pure particle of Dafa.
