Clarifying the Truth in a Forced Labor Camp and Urging People to Quit the Party
(Clearwisdom.net) In 2009, agents from the 610 Office and the Domestic Security Bureau illegally arrested me and detained me in a forced labor camp for one and a half years. I was found with many copies of the Nine Commentaries on the Communist Party in my possesion. Although I was cruelly tortured, I refused to sign the "three statements." The guards handcuffed my hands behind my back for eight days straight. I could not lift my head nor straighten my back, and my whole body became terribly swollen. I felt dizzy, like I was seeing stars, and I developed a fever. At the time I remembered that a practitioner’s righteous thoughts are powerful, and that under no circumstances should I cooperate with the demands of the evil. I knew that I must also use righteous thoughts at all times to look the evildoers straight in the face. I thus maintained righteous thoughts and righteous actions. I wrote a letter to the perpetrators, telling them that I would sue them. When the guards saw it, I said, “I intend to sue all of you. I want the whole world to know about this persecution.” From then on, my situation improved.
I didn't cooperate with the evil during my detention and did not answer roll call. The guards wanted to know why I didn't listen to them. I told them that I studied Falun Dafa, and followed the requirements of Falun Dafa. Thus I would not answer their roll call.
From then on I sat regularly in the meditation posture for a long time and sent righteous thoughts. They could do nothing to me and thus pretended not to see what I was doing. They held a meeting and then transferred me to the general population section. I was the only practitioner there. This created an opportunity and environment for me to urge the other inmates to renounce their Party membership.
This prison locked up mainly thieves and gangsters. There were more than one hundred of them. They would come and go, and I noticed that those who had renounced their Party-related memberships left for good, but those who did not, came back again. I was going against time to save people. The tribulations then increased, and the guards got prisoners to monitor me. I asked the team leader, “Why did you get people to monitor me? If there is anything you need to know, just come straight to me. Why waste someone else's time? What kind of person is he, and what kind of person am I? I cultivate according to Dafa to be a good person, and I should not be locked up here.” After the team leader heard this, he stopped the monitoring.
When I was urging the team leader to renounce his Party membership, I used a pen to draw a head on paper. I drew a mark between the eyebrows to indicate the mark of the evil CCP. I told the team leader that this mark gets produced when a person raises his hand to make a vow to give his life to the Party. I told him that the only way to guarantee his safety was to renounce his Party membership. He thought that what I was saying was reasonable and renounced his Party membership. In a few days he was promoted to a higher position, in charge of more than one hundred people.
One day I had the thought that I wanted all of the team leaders to renounce their Party memberships before I left. Thus I sought them out to speak with them about this issue. They all agreed and said that if there were Falun Gong practitioners under their directive in the future, they would not persecute them, because they knew practitioners were good people.
The day I left the prison was a Sunday. As there was no work to be done that day, more than a hundred people had gathered in the hall to watch television. Before they switched on the television, they asked me what they should do if they missed me. I told them, “You should then think, 'Falun Dafa is good'.” Everyone applauded.
I took the names of the more than ninety people who had quit the Party-related organizations out with me, and the team leader helped me with carrying my belongings. I walked righteously out of prison's main gates and bid them farewell. At the door a car from my place of employment, with my supervisor inside, was waiting for me. My eyes were filled with tears.
I was thankful to Master for His protection and help. On the way back, my supervisor asked me, "What do you think of Falun Gong?" I said, “Falun Gong can help society to raise its morals and improve people’s mental and spiritual health.”
