(Clearwisdom.net) The persecution of Falun Gong in China began on July 20, 1999. Overnight, all the Chinese media started to attack Falun Gong. Jiang Zemin claimed he would "eradicate Falun Gong within three months." The Chinese Communist regime began to arrest Falun Gong practitioners all over the country.

Subsequently, the regime continuously fabricated countless lies that were broadcast on state controlled media such as: "Falun Gong forbids its practitioners from taking medicine" and "1400 people have died from the practice." The Communist Party also staged the "Tiananmen Square self immolation" to incite hatred against Falun Gong. The regime also compiled these lies into textbooks. People who had never even heard of Falun Gong or knew what it was believed this propaganda without question and had misunderstandings about Falun Gong. Some even harbored unreasonable hatred towards the practice.

Falun Gong practitioners embarked on the difficult journey of clarifying the truth to expose these lies and help people understand Falun Gong. In return, they have been subjected to hundreds of torture methods gathered from all periods of history; the unprecedented and inhuman live organ harvesting, with thousands of practitioners being persecuted to death (not including those murdered secretly); and hundreds of thousands locked up in prisons and forced labor camps. At the same time, they've had to endure the mockery and slander of those who do not understand them.

Eleven years have now gone by. Falun Gong (Falun Dafa) has spread to 114 countries worldwide and its major written works have been translated into 38 languages. All crimes committed in the persecution of Falun Gong as well as individuals and organizations involved are currently being investigated by the World Organization to Investigate into the Persecution of Falun Gong. On December 17, 2009, an Argentina Federal Court made a historic decision, ordering Interpol to arrest former CCP head Jiang Zemin and head of the 610 Office Luo Gan for "crimes against humanity."

In these 11 years, time has proven that the CCP has not defeated Falun Gong. Not only that, its lies have been exposed, one by one. Those in China who have seen the true nature of the CCP are taking the initiative to abandon it, particularly after the publication of the Nine Commentaries on the Communist Party in 2004, which initiated the movement to withdraw from the Party. To date, 76,970,000 have renounced their memberships in the Party and its affiliated organizations.

If, 11 years ago, you were deceived by the CCP, then now, 11 years later, have you thought about this rationally? If you say that 11 years ago you did not know about Falun Gong, then in these 11 years, did you see or hear the truth? If, in these 11 years, you once misunderstood or passively or ignorantly took part in slandering and persecuting Falun Gong as a result of the lies propagated by the CCP, then today, please cherish this opportunity to make amends and support Falun Gong practitioners.

July 20 is a special day, a sad day. History will not forget and no one should forget this day. Please remember, "Falun Dafa is good."
