Eyewitness Reveals Knowledge of Peaceful April 25 Appeal

The director of our local Political and Legal Affairs Committee is a good friend of mine. We went on a trip with one of his colleagues, the director of the local People’s Congress, as well as a young mother and her four-year-old son. To keep her son busy, she let him watch videos of traditional Chinese culture on her iPad.

The two directors asked where she had found those videos, as schools in China no longer teach students traditional culture. I told them about how children of Falun Dafa practitioners are taught about Chinese traditions.

The director of the People’s Congress said, “You’re such a graceful and knowledgeable woman. You must be quite well read.”

“As a matter of fact, I got much of my knowledge from just one book, Zhuan Falun,” I said.

I then opened the book to the first page, “Lunyu.” My friend told me to read it aloud since he was driving.

After I finished reading, the friend of the director told us a story. He was inside the Appeals Office near Tiananmen Square, and saw thousands of Falun Dafa practitioners peacefully appeal to the government on April 25, 1999.

He remembered that they asked the authorities to stop the unlawful treatment of practitioners. He noticed that some practitioners were reading books, and some were meditating. Afterwards, he learned from the government controlled television stations that practitioners were “laying siege” to the central government compound, falsely painting the Falun Gong practitioners as a threat.

“The CCP is rotten to the core, and will be gone soon,” he said.

Not Ready to Quit the CCP

I asked, “Why don’t you quit it so that you won’t be implicated when it’s finished.”

He did not answer my question and commented, “I don’t like how practitioners always talk about quitting the CCP. Aren’t you getting involved in politics by doing so?”

“We're not interested in politics at all,” I explained. “The CCP is hastening its destruction with its killing of thousands of innocent practitioners. They remove and transplant organs from living practitioners for money. Sooner or later, those involved in the persecution will be brought to justice. Haven't you heard that many high-ranking officials have been prosecuted already?”

Then, I told him, “You joined the CCP because it would help your career. However, quitting the CCP will bring you a good future.”

My friend chimed in, “It's fine if he knows what's right or wrong in his heart.” I realized that he may be hesitant to quit the CCP because of the presence of the young mother.

While walking on the beach, the director of the People’s Congress told me, “I’m going to write something for you.” Then he wrote in the sand, “My heart sides with compassion.”

Trust in Dafa Defeats Plot

My friend had offered his support during the days when I was persecuted. After he became director of the Political and Legal Affairs Committee, I told him that he should not have accepted that position because he would have to persecute practitioners, but since he is there already, he should do his best to protect practitioners.

About a year later, the Provincial Discipline Inspection Commission and the Municipal Commission for Discipline Inspection began to plot against him. There were also online articles that attacked him. He realized that he could no longer trust anyone, so he came to me for advice. I told him to sincerely recite “Falun Dafa is good; Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good,” because only Teacher Li could help him.

He said. “After talking to you, I feel very relaxed and am no longer stressed out.” He then held his hands in front of his chest and said, “Falun Dafa is good; Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good.”

His ordeal was coming to an end after about six months. He invited a few of his friends, including me, to his house. He told me that he was planning to leave that “deadly position.” He then held his hands in front of his chest to show me his gratitude, and said, “Falun Dafa is good; Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good.”

“I can feel that Falun Dafa’s name will soon be cleared,” he said. “Now that you’ve helped me quit the CCP, you can be my witness in the future.”
