The Righteous Overcomes the Evil - Stories from a Drug Rehabilitation Center
(Clearwisdom.net) Jiang's regime has frequently detained healthy, innocent Dafa practitioners in drug rehabilitation centers, sparking resistance both from the public and from Dafa practitioners. The following are stories of what happened in one such drug rehabilitation center.
Kind-Hearted People Awakening
During the Chinese New Year in 2001, female division No. 2 of the drug rehabilitation center called a meeting. Chief Liu slandered Dafa. The practitioners immediately stood up and called, "Falun Dafa is good! All Dafa practitioners are good people." A group of police officers and drug abusers started to beat the practitioners. A policeman dragged me by my hair from the conference room all the way to the office. Bunches of my hair were torn out and I collapsed on the floor. One police officer tried to stop the beating, and a group of male drug abusers in the cells across the hallway shouted, "Stop beating Falun Gong practitioners! They are all good people, Falun Dafa is good!" Chief Liu was scared and immediately left. Since then no one has called any meetings to slander Dafa any more.
The Power of One Body
All practitioners that were detained in the drug rehabilitation center agreed that it was wrong to detain us there, we should not acknowledge the persecution against Dafa and Dafa practitioners. As a result, we refused to wear the uniforms for drug abusers and refused to answer when our names were called. Whenever the drug abusers were called into a meeting, we would recite Lun Yu and Hong Yin together loudly. We also insisted on practicing the exercises every day.
If the police beat any Dafa practitioner, the rest of us would gather in the big hall to practice the exercises together and request that the person who tortured Dafa practitioners receive punishment. More than 40 practitioners here formed joined together as one body to work together. We documented the facts of police abusing Dafa practitioners, and inserted messages of "Falun Dafa is good" or "Falun Dafa is the righteous way" into products that we were forced to make. The products were shipped all over the country and the center received feedback about the messages. The police did not dare do anything about it.
Anytime someone came to the center to visit or inspect, we would shout, "Falun Dafa is good, we are being abused." Though the police strictly controlled the use of pens in the center, truth-clarifying slogans could be seen on the walls. When the police interrogated us and asked us to sign interrogation records, we tore the records to pieces.
When the police wanted to shock Dafa practitioners with electronic batons, all practitioners would recite Master's Hong Yin together loudly,
"To live with no pursuits,
To die with no regrets;
Extinguish all illusory thoughts,
Cultivating Buddhahood is not difficult."
The police put aside their electric batons and begged us to stop reciting.
