Clarifying the Truth to CCP Officials at the Airport
(Clearwisdom.net) On December 14, 2009, I clarified the truth about Falun Gong at Taiwan Taoyuan International Airport. I went to the terminal at approximately 3:00 p.m. that day, a little later than usual. Some other practitioners and I carried signs that praised Falun Gong and the airport police ordered us to put them away because officials from the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) would be arriving soon. Just as the police were telling us to stay away from the airport terminal, about 50 people came into the terminal from an arriving plane. I could tell from their accents that most of them were from mainland China. There were some Taiwanese people there to meet them in addition to a good number of reporters. It appeared that some reporters and other members of the media were traveling with them as well. As the group and its entourage came by, a fellow practitioner and I continuously sent forth righteous thoughts to eliminate the evil. At that time, I was not aware that among these people was Xu Guangchun, a high-ranking official in the CCP and one of the arch-criminals that persecutes Falun Gong practitioners.
At the time, I had a strong feeling that these people were not ordinary tourists from China. I had one thought in mind, "No matter how the airport police interfere with me, I will keep righteous thoughts so I can clarify the truth and save sentient beings." Then I heard a welcoming party shout slogans that were prepared for the arriving officials. Meanwhile, the police stood guard beside them.
At approximately 4:00 p.m. the same day, another group of CCP officials entered the airport terminal. I approached them and shouted, "Falun Dafa is good! Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good! Stop persecuting Falun Gong immediately!" Right away, three tall police officers tried to stop me and put their hands on me several times. They yelled insults at me but I shouted with all my strength, "Falun Dafa is good! Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good! Stop persecuting Falun Gong immediately!" I kept shouting these words until all of the CCP officials were gone.
While this was happening, two Taiwanese reporters turned to watch. They took photographs of the police accosting me while I told the police to take their hands off me. I pointed out to the police that reporters were taking pictures. When the reporters left, the police asked for my ID and told me to follow them to the police station. They warned me that I would be arrested and detained for 36 hours if I refused to obey them.
I asked one of the officers, "Why are you taking me to the police station? It is not against the law to shout, 'Falun Dafa is good! Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good! Stop persecuting Falun Gong!' I have done nothing wrong. I have freedom of speech. I didn't violate the law. On the contrary, it's you, the police, who assaulted me and interfered with my freedom." I asked the police officers, "Why didn't you stop those people who shouted greetings to the CCP officials? Why are you questioning me? You are Taiwan police and are supposed to protect people and uphold justice. Why don't you take the side of good people and stop protecting bad people?" In my mind, I kept sending forth righteous thoughts to disintegrate the evil while I tried to clarify the truth to the police officers and persuade them that Falun Dafa is good.
I told the officers, "I am here today to tell world that the CCP is persecuting Falun Gong practitioners. Those people who came here earlier were CCP officials, so they must have directly or indirectly persecuted Falun Gong practitioners in China. Therefore, it is important for them to know the truth and even more important that they be stopped. We cannot allow them to continue persecuting good Falun Gong practitioners."
Upon hearing what I said, the policemen decided to leave me alone and walked away. After they left, however, another police officer came over and told me that he saw what had just happened. He apologized on behalf of the other policemen for the way I was treated and said that they handled the situation poorly. He told me that he knows that Falun Dafa is good and that he admires the Falun Dafa practitioners who clarify the truth at the airport. He said that he had no choice but to follow orders but, if he could take off his uniform, he would stand together with us to stop the CCP's evil doings. I couldn't hold back my tears when he said that.
I am grateful to Teacher for strengthening my righteous thoughts so that I can do the three things that Dafa practitioners should do, including telling people the truth about Falun Gong. Here I would like to offer some advice to my fellow practitioners: When you are faced with evil, don't be upset or afraid. Instead, send forth righteous thoughts, completely eliminate the evil with your divine powers, and save sentient beings.
