(Clearwisdom.net) I started to practice Falun Dafa in 1995, and I went overseas to live two years later.

In 1999 Jiang's regime started to persecute Falun Gong. In order to encourage my aunt, who had introduced Dafa to me, to hold fast to her belief in Teacher and Dafa, I sent her some materials about Falun Gong being persecuted in China. These materials were discovered by someone in the mailroom, who opened the package and reported it to the authorities. Now my name is on record at the State Security Bureau. They dispatched someone to investigate at my previous work unit and came up with nothing. My parents are retired, so they went to talk to one of my friends (a Party member, and not a practitioner). They told her that I opposed the government and the Party from overseas, and asked for information about me. My friend said she had no longer had contact with me and knew nothing of my situation. The State Security Bureau staff tapped her telephone and frequently harassed her at work. They even went to her husband's work place to harass him. Since then, my friend has avoided contact with me.

She did not dare to talk with me. I tried to call her cell phone, and she would say, "Since you called me, I'll have to change my cell phone number again after a few days." I sensed the terrible pressure she was under.

My friend could do nothing but leave the country. She quit her government job, and in order to evade entanglement with the State Security Bureau, she left her husband and her child, going overseas to study. At first she still did not dare to communicate with me much. She gradually felt more at ease overseas, and now we have regular communication.

Cases like this are numerous, and they should continue to be exposed.
