News and Activities Around the World
On September 8, Falun Gong practitioners in the New England area and around the United States got together and held an experience sharing conference. Many practitioners improved their understandings of Dafa by looking inwards and clearing up misunderstandings among fellow practitioners. The conference enhanced mutual understandings among the practitioners, and some practitioners exchanged ideas with regards to clarifying the truth to the Chinese people. Everybody realized that clarifying the truth to the precious Chinese people is top priority in the current Fa-rectification period. Many practitioners expressed that they would actively participate in this work of saving the sentient beings.
Clarifying the Truth
Thousands and thousands of words sent along with my care to my fellow colleague:
"In August 2001, International Educational Development (IED) analyzed the TV news report of the so-called "self-immolation" incident broadcasted by the Chinese Central Television Station (CCTV) by playing it in slow motion, and confirmed that it has many flaws. The IED stated in the United Nations Conference: "The 'self-immolation' incident was staged by the Chinese government." If the self-immolation incident can let people achieve consummation, then why didn't one such case occur during 1992 to 1999 while Falun Dafa was widely promoted in China? Why was there no suicide or murder case overseas? In fact, all the defamation by Jiang's regime is purely fictitious lies. Out of my sincere concern for you, I am telling you the facts. I really hope that you and your family members, as well as all the kind-hearted people, will have a beautiful future."
To the Neighborhood Committees and the People in Charge at Work Units: Please Conduct Good Deeds and Reject Bad Orders to Benefit Others and Yourselves
Recently Jiang once again issued documents to target Falun Gong as the Number 1 target of persecution, claiming that they would rigorously search and arrest Falun Gong practitioners. The three-year persecution by Jiang's group against Falun Gong is failing. As a result, they have developed a state of hysteria. Please ask your own conscience: Did any incident such as the so-called "Self-Immolation" or "Killing" claimed to be done by Falun Gong practitioners happen before 1999? In which work unit did it happen? At present there are Falun Gong practitioners in 50 to 60 countries and Falun Gong has received over 700 awards and proclamations from different countries. Most of the arrested practitioners are retired men and women. Would those people threaten Jiang' power? In the brainwashing class the vicious people force-feed Falun Gong practitioners alcohol, medicine, salt water or pepper water, and don't allow them to sleep for days. They shamelessly use spies against practitioners. But you are helping those vicious people to arrest your neighbors and coworkers -- Falun Gong practitioners are sent to the brainwashing class and tortured. Aren't you guilty of it? This is helping the vicious carry out bad deeds, which is against heavenly principles! The law of retribution is a heavenly principle. Please take it seriously. Throughout history, no one who helped the vicious had good endings. This is the absolute truth. Please reconsider.
