(Clearwisdom.net) When I was illegally imprisoned in the labor camp and sent to the brainwashing center, I persisted in validating Dafa, clarifying the truth, and resisting the persecution. Now I am recording my experiences to share with all practitioners. I ask my fellow practitioners to point out anything inappropriate.
Clarifying the Truth and Resisting the Persecution at the Labor Camp
At one time, the forced labor camp required all practitioners to be "transformed." This was because the 610 Office told the camp officials, "If the transformation rate does not reach 100%, the chief of the camp will be dismissed immediately." Since the chief was so flustered and exasperated, he told his prison guards, "If you cannot 'transform' them, you would be fired immediately."
Under the immense pressure, some people wrote a guarantee statement as soon as they heard the sound of the electric batons. The practitioners who did not write guarantees were distributed into different sections to be dealt with. At that time, I was sent to the administration section, which was called the "rump card section" by the prison guards.
About 7:00 a.m. one day, I was handcuffed and taken from "the strict administration" to the administration section. The deputy chief used an electric baton to shock me, but that failed, so he got a stronger one from the guard department. After they shocked me with electric batons, they dragged me to a table and told me to write the guarantee. Since I had been shocked for so long, I could not do anything. They gave me water to drink, but I could not drink it. Therefore, they couldn't achieve their goal. The deputy chief pretended to be generous and kind to me, but he saw I was not convinced. He ordered, "We have not cooked him long enough, so continue to electrify him." They shocked me for three to four hours. At that time I did not think of using righteous thoughts to turn the tables on the evildoers.
At noon, I was sent back to my confined metal cage, but I did not eat anything. In the afternoon, the prison guards ordered me to write a guarantee statement. I told them that I would not write one, and I did not clarify the truth to them. As a result, I was taken to the administration section again and they shocked me with the electric baton. The deputy chief told me, "The chief said that it is enough if you acknowledge that Falun Gong does not have any organization." I replied immediately, "Falun Gong does not have any organization and does not participate in politics." The deputy chief said, "Good. Now just write that Falun Gong does not have any organization and does not participate in politics." When I finished writing these two sentences, he immediately took the slip to the forced labor camp. Now I realize that I did not resist the old forces' persecution completely at that time.
On the second day, I was sent to the administration section again. Only the section chief and an internal section staff member were there. I immediately realized that this was an opportunity to clarify the truth.
The section chief was over 50 years old. I told him that the political movements of the past, such as the Great Cultural Revolution, all persecuted people. I talked about how cultivation practices have been persecuted throughout history, about the heavenly principle that good is rewarded with good and evil brings retribution, and the truth about Dafa. After he finished listening, he raised his right hand and told me, "I understand now that I treated you badly yesterday."
At this time, the section chief had to handle matters. Only the internal section staff member remained. I told the young man that Dafa in Changchun was once called "the spring of Qigong" by Wu Shaozu, the then director of the State Sports General Administration. He said immediately, "I was a solider in Changchun. I did the exercises at Shengli Park." After this meeting, he tried to find chances to chat with me several times, but he could not because of strict management.
From then on, the section chief stopped persecuting Falun Gong practitioners. Later, after I was transferred to another labor camp, the section chief visited me and told me, "You must stay strong."
Several dozen practitioners refused to "transform" and we were transferred to a worse labor camp. At that labor camp, as Master instructed, I refused to cooperate with the evil or obey the evil's orders. Each time the prison guards attacked me and interrogated me, I always resisted and clarified the truth to them. After I clarified the truth to one young man, who was second in command, he said that he would stop persecuting Falun Gong.
Clarifying the Truth at the Brainwashing Center
Master said in "Master's Fa Taught in the International Teleconference:"
"It is not to have you simply become a hero among everyday people in counteracting the persecution. Rather, it is to have you validate the Fa while negating the old forces' arrangements and opposing the persecution, and to, through this, progress towards godhood."
Because we did not permit the old forces' arrangement, we were not transformed and we continuously sent forth righteous thoughts to eliminate the evil that manipulated the prison guards. The prison guards were afraid that I would influence other Dafa disciples, preventing the guards from receiving their bonuses, so they decided to release me.
They alternated their tactics by extorting money from practitioners and using force to brainwash them. They carried out their threats on Dafa disciples who had a firm belief and forced them to watch propaganda videos and listen to a so-called "professor" lecture them in attempts to brainwash them. When I was sent to the brainwashing class, I shared experiences with other Dafa disciples when we ate. The prison guards and the so-called professor did not allow us to mention Dafa. I then stood up and said, "Why do not you allow us to talk? Why can you talk? You are infringing on our human rights and persecuting us." At this time, a prison guard pointed at me and said fiercely, "Take him downstairs and deliver his food to him there."
A prison guard then delivered the food to me and kept watch over me. I thought that this was a chance to clarify the truth to him. Over the course of the next four days, I finally made him understand the truth. He said that he would not persecute practitioners anymore. In addition, he reached the conclusion that all practitioners were good people.
Except for eating and bathing, I did not obey any of the evil's arrangements. When people who were transformed into demons besieged me, I clarified the truth and shouted, "Falun Gong is good!" As a result, a chief of the "610 Office" came out and drove them away. After over ten battles between good and evil, they could not persecute me any more and sent me to a new building, where two people watched over me. I clarified the truth to everyone I met. They all earnestly listened to me. Later, the chief of the 610 Office said to the construction workers, "Falun Gong is good."
After being released for the third time, I used my whole body and mind to clarify the truth and save sentient beings. In the final key stage of Fa rectification, we must do the three things better and righteously fulfill the grand vows that we made before history!
