Co-workers and Police Protect Falun Gong Practitioner
(Minghui.org) I began to practice Falun Gong in March 1999. Not only did my health improve, but I also became a better person.
There are 17 employees in my work section, and I hold the position of a security guard and receptionist. Witnessing my positive changes after I began to practice Falun Gong, my supervisors and colleagues were all supportive of my cultivation practice. They volunteered for outdoor assignments, and told me to stay indoors and read the Falun Gong books.
After the persecution was launched by Jiang Zemin in July 1999, my colleagues became my protectors. They reminded me many times to hide my Falun Gong books, just before the police arrived at our company. Police never were told anything that could be used against me.
Before the Beijing Olympics in 2008, the police launched a large scale arrest of practitioners. One day I left Zhuan Falun, the main book of Falun Gong, on my desk. My deputy section supervisor saw it and put it in his desk. He returned the book the next day and warned me to be careful going forward.
Three police officers came to our office to work on a project. They were quite hostile towards me at the beginning. I treated them as friends. It just took a few days for them to become sympathetic toward Falun Gong. We became friends, and they often warned me of an impending police action against practitioners.
My supervisor informed me in 2006 that a practitioner had been arrested the prior day. I immediately went home and moved my Falun Gong materials to a safe place. Immediately upon my return to the office, several police officers arrived. They took me to my house and ransacked it, but found nothing. They arrested my wife and me. But, since they failed to find any incriminating evidence they had to release us.
When I returned to the office, my colleagues had been discussing how to rescue us from detention. They were very happy to see me back.
