The Heavenly Principle Says - "Good Will Be Rewarded with Good, and Evil with Evil"
Chen Shidong, Vice Party Secretary at the Coal Factory of Hemei Group in Heilongjiang Province, was responsible for persecuting Falun Gong practitioners. His crimes include firing Falun Gong practitioners from their jobs, detaining current and retired employees, ordering forced brainwashing, and pressuring practitioners to write letters denouncing Falun Gong. In September 2000, when Chen was about to be promoted to be the Party Secretary by the Hemei Group Party Committee he suddenly died of a heart attack in his office.

At the 1st Female Labor Education Center in Guangxi Province, police ordered practitioners to be monitored around the clock.

The torture also includes locking up practitioners, force-feeding, not allowing them to sleep for long periods of time, and forcing them to squat for long periods of time. Additionally, practitioners are forced to work 10 -- 20 hours a day. Those who could not finish "assignments" from the police would be punished by forced physical exercise and prolonged work hours, etc. Any practitioner who objected to the unfair treatment would be beaten.
News from China
Several days ago there was an article featured on an Internet news website in China -- "The Police Ignored the Thieves! Commuters Got the Evidence on Video." The article says that that police at Dazhongsi and Zizhuyuan police stations in Haidian District in Beijing shifted tasks to avoid taking action after hearing reports about thievery. The bandit went on stealing and even robbing publicly. But the police officers work very hard in persecuting Falun Gong practitioners. Dazhongsi police even deploy plainclothes officers and hire taxis to follow practitioners. The reality of this story should wake up the Chinese people who are still indifferent to the persecutions against Falun Gong practitioners. When the Chinese legal system totally loses its social functions, ignores real crimes, instead acting as a tool to persecute innocent people, it is a calamity to every one.
Practitioners Exchange Insights
Understanding the Environment Around Oneself: The time for cultivation during Fa-Rectification is very limited. Some practitioners still think about maintaining personal benefits. They could not step forward up to now, with the attachment of fear and comfort. Some are afraid that their ideal jobs or positions would be affected, some worry that their economic situation would be damaged, some are afraid that their relatives would be affected, some think that their cultivation has been pretty good already, and some are unable to continue diligent cultivation after suffering several severe tribulations; there are numerous excuses. Generally, they are all related to ordinary people's fame, benefits, and sentiment. On one hand they want to continue in cultivation, but on the other hand they cannot let go of their human attachments. But cultivation is serious. As a human being, although you might have everything you want now and feel very comfortable; it will mean nothing upon death. Everything in the human world is like a passing cloud. Once Fa-rectification arrives everything in the old cosmos will end. Only the beings that have built their futures now can enter the new era. Please free yourself from human principles and concepts. Step forward from human thinking and rectify yourself through diligent cultivation and Fa-study.
