Solemn Declarations from Two Dafa Practitioners
I was arrested on October 2, 2014, for talking to people about the persecution of Falun Dafa.
After my release, officers continued to harass me and attempted to force me to promise not to distribute materials about the persecution of Falun Dafa. My family and relatives also joined the officers in threatening me. Afraid and overly sentimental, I bowed to the pressure and promised to no longer distribute truth-clarifying materials.
My family, threatened and deceived by officers from the 610 Office, worried that I would be taken to a brainwashing center. They wrote a guarantee statement, stating that I gave up practicing Falun Dafa and gave it to the officers.
I was distressed when I found out. My failure to cultivate well led to this, bringing about losses to Dafa.
In addition, when the Chinese Communist Party started to persecute Falun Dafa in 1999, the secretary where I worked ordered me and another practitioner to promise not to practice Falun Dafa. I said, “Then I'll quit the practice.”
I hereby solemnly declare that everything I have said or done that does not conform with the principles of Dafa is null and void. I will diligently and solidly cultivate Falun Dafa, do the three things well, and make up for the losses I've caused.

I was arrested at home and taken to a brainwashing center by four plainclothes officers at around 10:00 a.m. on September 22, 2014. The police confiscated all my Falun Dafa texts and a picture of Master Li.
Some former practitioners, who stopped practicing after being brainwashed, tried to brainwash me by defaming Master and Dafa. Seeing my firm determination to cultivate, they changed tactics and threatened to do something bad to my children if I refused to give in.
Giving in to the pressure, and thinking that I could pretend to be "transformed," and against my conscience, I transcribed the “five statements” and “questionnaire.” I wrongly betrayed Master Li and Dafa.
I hereby solemnly declare that the “five statements” and “questionnaire” I transcribed, and everything I have said or done that does not conform to the principles of Dafa, are null and void. I will make up for the losses that I have caused to Falun Dafa. I will firmly believe in Master and Dafa and be a qualified Dafa disciple.
