Solemn Declarations from Falun Dafa Practitioners in China
(Clearwisdom.net) I started practicing Falun Dafa on July 28, 1996. On January 13, 2000, I went to Beijing to appeal to the central government against the persecution of Falun Dafa. However, I was arrested and escorted home by a policeman from my hometown and detained for twenty days. After being fined 6,000 Yuan (1), I was bailed out and awaited "trail." In addition, my salary was suspended. On March 20, 2001, I was sentenced to two years of forced labor. Due to a lack of understanding of the Fa and my own weakness, I had been brainwashed and coerced to write the Repentance Statement, Guarantee Statement and Dissociation Statement (known as the "Three Statements") many times. I had also said what a practitioner should never say. After being released on August 31, 2002, in order to resume my work soon and solve my family's financial difficulties (my salary was resumed after 13 months' suspension), I had to get proof from certain related officials that certified that I had given up practicing Falun Dafa. Under such pressure, I renounced my faith in Falun Dafa to the school, Education Bureau, police station and police department in my city. I had even written phony documents and been videotaped in TV programs to defame Falun Dafa. I acted quite irrationally. I still want to practice Falun Dafa. I will redouble my efforts to make up for the losses I have brought to Falun Dafa, and be a steadfast practitioner. Here I declare solemnly that all I had done and written before is null and void.

I began practicing Falun Dafa in 1996. Since then I conducted myself according to "Truthfulness, Compassion and Tolerance" to be good a person. I improved my moral standard and gained dramatic health improvement. I was truly grateful to Teacher Li. However in July 1999, the Jiang regime banned the practice of Falun Dafa in China. At the time I was under great pressure, because I was an associate leader, charged with details of managing the work related to politics in my unit. My husband worked in a police department, and my daughter was an intern in the police department. My work unit and the associated sector supervisor forced me to submit a Repentance Statement [renouncing my faith in Falun Dafa], the police station forced me to talk and hand in my Falun Dafa books. They then forced me to sign a transcript of my "confession." My husband compelled me to hand in my Falun Dafa books, the pictures of Teacher Li, and the audiotapes of the exercise music. The workers' union forced me to gather dozens of workers in front of the gate of the county union headquarters to sign a banner to defame Falun Dafa. Judicial authorities forced me to do the problems on the law exam paper which were elaborated to viciously denounce Falun Dafa. All the above were done against my will. Here I solemnly declare, all the Repentance Statements, Guarantee Statements and Dissociation Statements written under the persecution arranged by the old forces, and all the deeds and words which do not accord to Falun Dafa, are null and void. From now on I will redouble my efforts to compensate for the losses I have done to Falun Dafa, and keep on practicing until the end.
