People Refuse to Go Along with a Communist Regime Propaganda Stunt in 1999
(Minghui.org) On July 20, 1999, the leader of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP), Jiang Zemin, started the persecution of Falun Gong. The CCP police illegally arrested, detained, and sentenced Falun Gong practitioners, sending them to forced labor camps. They forcibly searched for and seized Falun Gong books and did not allow people to practice the exercises. At the same time, all of the Party's propaganda machines started a full scale attack to overwhelmingly attack and defame Falun Gong. They used all kinds of false propaganda and concocted lies, including alleging 1,400 deaths to deceive people who did not know the truth.
Here I expose a case of false propaganda by the Party officials.
I live in a town near a big city. One day, a truck came loaded with confiscated Falun Dafa books to be destroyed at the town's paper mill. The truck was escorted by many CCP police officers, journalists and officials. This attracted a big crowd of people who didn't know the truth (some of them were organized by the local Communist Party).
The police ordered the local people to form a circle. Reporters and other people who were carrying cameras formed a circle around them, waiting to take pictures. The police began to slander Dafa. Then they told the crowd to speak up and say bad things about Dafa. One policeman told the people: “Now the central government says that Falun Gong is a cult. Folks, you should support and work with the government. If you are called on to speak then you have to speak. You cannot believe in Falun Gong!” He then pointed at one person and said: “You speak first.” That person replied: “I will not say anything.” The policeman said: “I'll tell you what to say. You just say you practiced Falun Gong, and how you were hurt after practicing Falun Gong and how Li Hongzhi deceived you.” The man responded: “I will not say these things.” The policeman took out a prepared script from his pocket and handed it to him: “I have written the script. Just read it if you don't know what to say. After you read it we'll broadcast it on television as part of the government plan.” Most of the people in the crowd shook their heads in disagreement, and said: “Isn't this fraud?” Some people whispered: “I know so and so who practice Falun Gong. They are very nice people.” Others said they had read Falun Gong books and those books taught people to do good, and said many other positive things. This show staged by the CCP police was resisted and rejected by the crowd and their attempt at filming a fraudulent performance had to end.
This had a great impact in our area and afterwards everyone talked about it. After witnessing the whole episode, my neighbor came directly to my house. She often drops by my house and I always tell her how practicing Falun Gong benefited me. As soon as she stepped in the door she said to me: “I tell you, the story of the 1,400 death cases is all false.” I asked her what was going on. She told me what had happened and said angrily: “The Communist Party is really evil!” I was happy that she was able to distinguish between good and evil and see through the lies of the Communist Party. It shows that not everyone will go against their conscience to follow the CCP in the persecution of Falun Gong. The majority of Chinese people still have their conscience. Over the years, the CCP's ugly performances have actually caused the masses to deeply resent it. Someday, the regime and those who follow it will pay for their crimes.
I did not understand why the Communist Party would exert such a big effort to defame Falun Gong and persecute a group of people who want to be good and practice Truthfulness, Compassion and Forbearance. In order to safeguard Dafa and defend the reputation of Dafa, I went to appeal to the Beijing Petition Office. I wanted to tell people from the bottom of my heart that Dafa is great and the persecution should stop. Because of this, I was detained and persecuted. I was sentenced to seven years in prison and did not have a chance to reveal what happened in my city in time. Now I want to expose the Chinese Communist Party's fraud and let people see clearly its true face so they can understand that the persecution of Falun Gong is built on lies, deceit and coercion. People should stop believing the false propaganda spread by the CCP media. They should distinguish between good and evil and quit the CCP and its affiliated organizations. They should treat Falun Gong practitioners well and choose a bright future for themselves.
