Solemn Declarations from Two Dafa Practitioners
I began practicing Falun Dafa in March 1999. Through studying the Fa and doing the exercises, I benefited both in mind and body. After the persecution began in July 1999, the local 610 Office, Administrative Office, Village Committee, and guards often came to harass and pressure me not to practice or go to Beijing to appeal. On April 15, 2000, my wife and I went to Beijing and we did the Falun Dafa sitting meditation in Tiananmen Square. We were later arrested and sent back to our local police station and detained for 15 days. I signed my name on the detention paper. After 15 days, they transferred my wife and I to a hotel basement where we were jailed for six months. Due to my fear and attachment to comfort, I gave in to the evil and wrote a statement indicating I would not practice or appeal. I also gave in to the pressure to say some slanderous things about Teacher and Dafa. At the end of 2000, the authorities said to me, "If you promise in writing that you won't go to appeal during the Chinese New Year, we will release you." I said nothing, but signed my name.
On July 27, 2001, my wife went to distribute truth-clarification materials and were arrested. The second day, my village party secretary came to ask if I still practiced Falun Gong and I replied, "Yes." He then kicked and beat me, and also called the political and legal committee secretary and administrative office director, asking them to send people to arrest me. This gang dragged me to the car and took me to the police station. I was then put in shackles. They beat me and would not allow me to sleep at night. They also handcuffed me to a window for nearly one month. In the end, I was forced to say, "I will no longer practice." I hereby solemnly declare null and void everything I said, did and wrote before that did not conform to Dafa. I will redouble my efforts and make up for the loss I brought to Dafa. I will do the three things well and be a qualified Dafa disciple.

In 2000, the evil was very rampant in persecuting practitioners and I was sentenced to three years of forced labor "re-education." At that time I did not have a good understanding of the Fa, plus I had fear, so I gave up cultivation. I also wrote statements criticizing Teacher with words copied from a newspaper. What I did helped the evil and disgraced Dafa. One month later, I was released on medical parole. Two months later I was unconditionally released. I was deceived by the persecutors and I even sent them a flag showing my gratitude. Now, after studying the Fa, I realized what I did before was no different than committing a crime. I hereby solemnly declare what I did, said and wrote before are all null and invalid. I will study the Fa more and follow Teacher's teachings. I will also do the three things well, redouble my efforts to make up for the loss I brought to Dafa, follow the Fa-rectification process and be a qualified Dafa disciple.
