Solemn Declarations from Non-Practitioners
Jiang Zemin lied to the public and persecuted Falun Gong. I am an elderly non-practitioner. I was deceived by the vicious lies, and said things that were very disrespectful toward Falun Dafa and its founder, Mr. Li. I feel very sorry for having done this. Now I know that Falun Dafa is a virtuous practice, and that practitioners are all very good people. The world needs "Truthfulness, Compassion and Tolerance." In the future I will find opportunities to clarify the truth and compensate for the damage I have done.

Since July 20, 1999, a member of my family has been persecuted because she practices Falun Gong. To ease the pressure on her we wrote the "separation and guarantee letters" (1) and other materials that aren't in accordance with the standard of Falun Gong. I hereby declare that, although we aren't practitioners, we had watched Mr. Li's videotapes and had witnessed the health benefits of Falun Gong in my family member. We all knew that Falun Gong is good, and supported her. We believe that in the future more people will support Falun Gong. We will find opportunities to clarify the truth in the future and compensate for the damage that we've done.

Since the persecution of Falun Gong started on July 20, 1999, the schools made every student sign their name in an effort to support the government's persecution. I was 10 years old back then, and I was young. I would do whatever the teacher told us to do, and wasn't capable of telling good from evil. Now I am older and know the truth about Falun Gong. I have learned about the principles of Falun Gong, "Truthfulness, Compassion and Tolerance," and that everyone in the world needs them. I want to declare through Clearwisdom.net that all the things I've said and done that were against Falun Dafa are null and void. I will oppose this persecution and support Falun Dafa. I'll find opportunities to clarify the truth in the future and compensate for the damage that I've done.

In the year 2002/2003, my brother was sent to a forced labor camp because he practices Falun Dafa. When I visited him, the labor camp staff made visitors fill out a questionnaire, but its content was completely defamatory against Dafa. I was desperate to see my brother and I complied with the questionnaire; that was a mistake. Although I don't practice Falun Gong, I understand that Falun Dafa is good and Falun Dafa is a righteous practice. I hereby declare that my answers on the "questionnaire" are null and void. I will believe in Dafa and be a kind and righteous person.

When my wife was being persecuted in the labor camp, I was desperate to have her back and wrote the "guarantee letter" for her. I hereby declare that all the things that I've written that aren't in accordance with Falun Dafa are null and void. In the future, I want to practice Falun Gong, too. I will find opportunities to clarify the truth in the future, and I will compensate for the damage I've done.
Zhang Xin, March 30, 2004
I am not a practitioner but I believe that practitioners are all good people. In 2001, when my son was in the labor camp and protested the persecution by undergoing a hunger strike, I gave the labor camp a "banner flag" as a token, hoping to get my son back as soon as possible. I felt very upset afterward, and feel that I shouldn't have done that. I hereby declare that I don't recognize the "silken-flag." I will protect Falun Dafa in the future. I believe that Dafa is good. I will clarify the truth and compensate for the damage that I've done.

(1) "Separation and Guarantee Letters": Practitioners are forced under pressure from brainwashing and torture to write these statements renouncing Falun Gong and promising not to practiced Falun Gong in the future or to associate with practitioners.
