(Clearwisdom.net) I am in my 60s and I teach Kindergarten. I started practicing Falun Dafa in 1997. I had been suffering from several kinds of diseases and was in a lot of physical pain. After I started to cultivate, I strove to follow the principles of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance. My xinxing improved a lot. All of the diseases and pain also disappeared without any medical treatment. I feel that Falun Dafa gave me a new life. Since July 20, 1999, the Chines Communist Party (CCP) started to persecute Dafa and Dafa practitioners. However, I still persist in doing the exercises every day. During the past seven years, I have been unceasingly harassed and persecuted.
1. Town Government Officials Tried to Force Me to Give Up the Practice
On January 9, 2000, some government officials from our town gathered all the Falun Dafa practitioners together in a meeting. The chief of the organization department, Huang Hongshi, 610 Office member Hu Dongxiang, and some other officials showed us some videos that maligned Dafa. Practitioners tried to protest the slander. Before the meeting ended, Yang Biqun forced every practitioner to sign a form before they could go back home. Practitioner Zhang Liuqing was illegally arrested there.
Since then, town official Sun Xuecheng, the head of the town, Zhang Jian, the chief of the organization department, Huang Hongshi, the school principal Zhang Zhuming, and our village officials Li Bingwen, Yang Daiqun, and Wang Biru often came to harass me day and night. They constantly came to my home, or even to my classroom. They summoned me to the town government several times. There they tried to brainwash me. They tried to force me to give up my practice. I tried to clarify the facts to them, but they still did not stop harassing me. In June 2000, they ganged up on me at the town hall. Their aim was to stop me from doing the exercises.
2. Arrested in Beijing While Validating Dafa
I went to Beijing to appeal on behalf of Falun Dafa on March 25, 2000. On March 28, I was arrested on Tiananmen Square. Later I was taken to the regional office of Sichuan Province in Beijing. I was forced to sit on the ground for the whole night. The next day, in the afternoon, local 610 Office official Hu Dongxiang and local policeman Wang Jingshan came to pick me and the others up. They took away our money and did not give us anything to eat on the way back.
On March 30, a staff member from the local police station, whose name was Feng Zhiyong, asked me why I went to Beijing. I said I wanted to appeal for justice for Falun Dafa. I wanted to get official permission for us to practice. He defamed Dafa and said swear words toward Master. He also tried to force me to stop practicing. I did not cooperate with their unreasonable demands, so later I was detained for 15 days. The chief of the 610 Office, Hu, and policeman Wang came to ask us if we still planned to practice. We all said "Yes." Hu Dongxiang said ferociously, "OK, then all of you go there [the detention center] to practice." At the detention center, Leng Junqing and some other policemen forcibly took pictures of us. Leng also read us some newspaper articles that maligned Dafa.
Later, the six of us were sent to a detention center. We were detained for 30 more days. Every day, we were forced to do much labor. We were also forced to strip 5 kilos of thin copper wires. There were animal droppings in our food. The vicious guards also ordered us to recite the detention center rules. We did not cooperate with them. We "clarified the facts" of Falun Dafa to the A member of the organization department, Chen Su, interrogated me twice. He tried to force me to stop practicing. I answered him, "My determination in Dafa cultivation is unwavering." They asked me to write the three statements. I did not cooperate. Later they asked me to write what I thought about Falun Dafa. I agreed.
At last, they said, according to a statement from the central authority, people who practice Falun Gong would be expelled from the CCP. After being detained for 30 days, I was sent back to my town government by Hu Dongxiang. There, I was forced to stand in the yard. After standing under the hot sun
3. The CCP's Brainwashing
On June 29, the authorities called me up to the town hall and persecuted me again. I stayed in a meeting room overnight. There were a lot of mosquitoes in the room. On the morning of June 30, the town officials called almost all the practitioners up to the town hall. In the afternoon, they started to beat practitioners, and they beat us for four days.
I was taken to the town hall on July 2 by Li Bingwen, Yang Daiqun, and Xu Fude. Some government officials were beating practitioner Zhang Qingshu. Hu Dongxiang beat me. Finally he stopped, but forced me to give him 500 "yuan. Around July 20, they called me up to the organization department office. Wang Deyuan and Wang Bo (father and son) from the County Organization Department were in the office. Wang Deyuan said I was going to be expelled from the Party and asked me if I had any objections. I said Falun Gong practitioners are cultivators who want to cultivate their hearts and to be kind. There's nothing wrong with this. I did not do anything bad. I told him it did not matter if I was expelled from the party.
In January 2001, some other practitioners and I were called to the town hall again. Hu Dongxiang and the deputy chief of our town, Li Tianfu, tried to brainwash us. Before the Chinese New Year, town official Ren Tingsheng also came to the town hall and tried to brainwash us. We did not cooperate with them. I asked him, "If you had any family members who became healthy after being treated by doctors, would you want to kill them?" He did not say anything. It wasn't until 5 o'clock on New Year's Eve that two fellow practitioners and I were sent back home.
4. Persecuted Three Times in 2004
The first incident happened on June 3 at 10:00 a.m. Lee Daichun and Song Yue stopped me and another practitioner on the street and checked our bags. Later they took us to the police station. They forcibly took pictures of us and searched us. At 5:00 p.m, policeman Yang Bin and another person drove us home and searched our homes. They did not find any Dafa books, so they even took some of my envelopes and stamps. On the same day, Lee Daichun and some other policemen went to arrest a practitioner surnamed Chen. Practitioner Zhang Qingshu was also arrested. They are still detained at Deyang Prison.
The second incident happened on June 9. Lee Daichun and Yu Xiuyun rushed into my house at 11:00 p.m. They tried to deceive me. They said I practiced the Falun Gong exercises with Zhang Qingshu and his guests. I denied it. They took me to the police station and tried to force me to admit that I practiced at Zhang Qingshu's place. They tried to force me to tell them about the other practitioners and where the truth-clarification materials came from. They did not get any information from me. I was allowed to go back home at 5:00 p.m.
The third incident happened on June 21 around noon. Yang Bin and another person barged into my house. They said there were some pictures at the police station and they wanted me to identify the people in the pictures. I remembered Master's teaching and did not cooperate with the evil. I said, "I will not go with you. I am very busy with my work. I don't know too many people because I don't have much time to go out." They whispered a little among each other. Later they left my house. I asked them to remember "Falun Dafa is good."
