Solemn Declarations from Two Dafa Practitioners
When other practitioners and I went to a village to talk to people about the persecution of Falun Dafa in 2010, I was arrested and taken to a local detention center. To protect myself, I betrayed fellow practitioners and wrote a guarantee statement promising not to practice Falun Dafa.
I was arrested again after my release and taken to a brainwashing center, where I wrote the “five statements,” five documents the authorities produce to force Falun Dafa practitioners to abandon their beliefs. At the end of that year, I was ordered to attend a local meeting that was set up solely to slander Dafa.
I have let Master and fellow practitioners down. I realized that I did not truly believe in Master and Dafa and never truly treated myself as a Dafa disciple. I feel deep regret.
Herewith, I solemnly declare that everything I have said and written that slandered Dafa and Master, whether in the detention center, brainwashing center, or at the local meeting, is null and void. From now on, I will have righteous thoughts, believe in Master and Dafa, do the three things well, make up for the losses that I have caused to Falun Dafa, and be a genuine Dafa practitioner in the Fa-Rectification Period.

I was arrested and taken to the county detention center by a dozen officers at around 6 p.m. on December 4, 2014. Five days later, I was transferred to the provincial brainwashing center.
In the brainwashing center, former practitioners who have renounced Falun Dafa and assisted in the persecution tried to "transform" me. They forced me listen to information that slandered Dafa around the clock.
The mental pressure was beyond what I could bear, filling me with fear, and I signed the “five statements,” even though my conscience told me not to. I have done things that let Dafa and Master down.
Herewith, I solemnly declare that everything I have said and written in the brainwashing center is null and void. I will do the three things well, save more sentient beings, make up for the losses that I have caused to Falun Dafa, firmly cultivate in Falun Dafa to the end, and return home with Master.
