Seeing through the Lies, Righting Wrongs (Part 2)
(Minghui.org) Continued from Part 1
Falun Gong practitioners volunteer on the Global Rapid Truth Clarification (RTC) platform to reach out to those who are directly involved with the persecution of Falun Gong. Once people understand the lies and deceit upon which the persecution is based, they are eager to make amends and distance themselves from the Chinese Communist Party (CCP). Those whose consciences are awakened wish to do the right thing and do not want to be on the wrong side of history when the CCP faces retribution for its crimes.
“Let Me Tell You My Own Experiences”
Ms. D started practicing Falun Gong in 1999, and her stomach disease and rheumatism were healed. After witnessing the power of Falun Gong, many of her friends and co-workers joined practicing too.
After the persecution started, Ms. D went to Beijing to appeal for Falun Gong. She was arrested and jailed in a detention center, where she was shocked with electric batons and injected with unidentified drugs.
Later, she was arrested eight times. She held hunger strikes to protest and was force-fed.
In 2006, Ms. D escaped to Europe. As soon as she had settled in, she joined the RTC Platform, telling people about Falun Gong with her personal experiences and exposing the persecution.
One day Ms. D called a police officer, who didn't believe that the persecution of Falun Gong was so brutal and cursed her. Ms. D told him about what she had experienced firsthand. Her personal account touched him deeply. He changed his attitude and patiently listened to her for a long time.
Before hanging up, Ms. D told him, “You will be punished if you don't stop participating in the persecution.” The policeman, whose conscience was awakened, sensed that Ms. D was sincerely considering his own well-being and promised not to be on the wrong side anymore.
Awakened People Help RTC Volunteers
A few months ago, Ms. D called a chief of a procuratorate. She told him about how Falun Gong has been embraced throughout the world and about the staged Tiananmen self-immolation and the forced organ harvesting. The chief was shocked.
He agreed to quit the Chinese Communist Party (CCP). He also promised that he would relay what he had just learned to his family and friends, and ask them to quit the CCP, too.
One day, Ms. D made a phone call to a police chief. As soon as she told him that she was a Falun Gong practitioner, the police chief said, “I know about the persecution. I really hate all the orders I get from high-up. The persecution is wrong.”
He gave Ms. D phone numbers of law enforcement officers involved in the persecution and said, “Please call them for me. Tell them the truth about the persecution.”
At the end, the chief asked Ms. D. to keep in touch with him.
Other RTC volunteers have had similar experiences. A volunteer from Taiwan called a courthouse before a practitioner's trial. The officer who answered the phone gave the volunteer the judge's number and suggested that she talk to the judge directly.
“A few years ago, we never would have gotten judges' phone numbers. But recently, officers offered us this information. We talk to the judges, which helps rescue the practitioners on trial,” this volunteer said.
Policeman: “Please Expose This Tragedy”
RTC volunteers focus on Chinese prisons, where Falun Gong practitioners are routinely and brutally tortured.
One day, Ms. E, a RTC volunteer, called a prison. The police officer who answered was worked up: “Many Falun Gong practitioners incarcerated here have been badly tortured, and some of them have died as a result.
“A few years ago, I witnessed a practitioner being beaten to death by a police chief in a different prison. It was horribly brutal, and made me very sad. I've always wanted to report it, but I didn't know who to tell.
“Those responsible not only avoid punishment, they got promoted! It is so wrong. My boss told me to keep quiet about it.
“I could not bear it anymore, so I left that prison. I could not stay there for another day.
“I am really pleased that you called today. I sincerely hope that you can expose what I've told you today. That Falun Gong practitioner's death was truly a tragedy.”
Policeman: “I Know Falun Dafa Is Good.”
One day, Ms. E talked to a policeman at a prison, who didn't understand why Falun Gong is being persecuted by the CCP.
Ms. E said, “The CCP felt threatened that Falun Gong out-numbered the CCP members. The CCP established its power based on lies and violence, whereas Falun Gong teaches Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance. So, the CCP cannot tolerate Falun Gong.” The policeman agreed.
“The CCP is atheist, and they don't believe that doing bad will have any consequences, so they have committed all kinds of crimes,” Ms. E said. “It has ruined the traditional moral standard in China. Think about it, is this a political party that serves its people?”
The policeman said, “I totally agree with you. I don't like the CCP, either.”
“Please tell your fellow police officers, who have been involved in the persecution of Falun Gong,” she said, “that they will be punished if they don't stop. You should not keep silent when you are faced with such wrongdoings.”
“You are right, I will talk to them and tell them to treat Falun Gong practitioners well,” he promised.
When she told him that he was a good person, he replied, “Thank you. I know that Falun Gong is good, and Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good.”
