(Minghui.org) Practitioners in China and abroad have been using Minghui Radio programs to help Chinese people understand the brutal persecution of Falun Gong. The recordings are often effective where other methods of communication have failed.

A practitioner who was arrested for her belief in China reported her bewildering experience at a police station. She recalled that as she tried to talk to the officers about Falun Gong, a young policeman's cellphone started ringing.

He put the call on speaker and rested the phone on the palm of his hand. A Minghui radio recording said, “This is the World Falun Dafa Minghui Radio Station. We are now going to present the facts about the Chinese government's state-sanctioned organ harvesting from Falun Gong practitioners...” The young policeman held the phone higher, his eyes beaming at the practitioner.

The other officers listened to the recording and smiled at the practitioner. When the practitioner later tried to do the Falun Gong exercises in the police station, none of the guards interfered with her. Some even encouraged her.

Practitioners outside of China have been calling Chinese police officers and government officials, telling them to stop participating in the persecution and asking them to release detained practitioners. Some practitioners play audio from Minghui Radio programs during their calls to make officers and officials aware of their roles in the persecution.

Minghui published a report in 2012 about the father of a practitioner in China who enjoys listening to Minghui Radio. Although the father doesn't practice Falun Gong, he believes the programs have helped him quit drinking and smoking. He told his son, “Falun Dafa is good, Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good. I really believe it now. I will never forget it. Never.”

Chinese tourists have also benefited from listening to the radio programs while abroad. An elderly practitioner in the United States relayed a story about using the radio programs at a tourist site to explain the Chinese regime's persecution of Falun Gong to Chinese tourists who had been misled by Communist Party propaganda.

“About six women in their 30s passed by us. I tried to talk to them, but they were belligerent and made some rude gestures,” she said. The practitioner stopped trying to talk to them and instead played radio programs about the Communist Party's harvesting organs from live prisoners of conscience and about the staged Tiananmen Square self-immolation. The group and other Chinese tourists stopped to listen. They learned about Falun Gong and the scale of the persecution.

Minghui Radio is managed by the Minghui website and aired its first broadcast on November 9, 2005.

The station offers a variety of Chinese language programs for the general public, including “The Facts of Falun Gong and the Persecution,” “Stories of Reward and Retribution,” “Traditional Culture,” and “Tianyin Pure Music.” Two programs, “Minghui Weekly on Air” and “Cultivation Sharing,” are aimed at Falun Gong practitioners.
