Diligently Telling People about the Persecution of Falun Gong
(Minghui.org) I started practicing Falun Gong (also known as Falun Dafa) in 1998. I have persisted in telling people about the persecution of Falun Gong in nearby cities, suburbs and rural areas. We have distributed Falun Gong informational materials, put up the words “Falun Dafa is good,” “Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good” and “Heaven will disintegrate the Chinese Communist Party” on walls and utility poles. I've hung banners on trees, and explained the facts about Falun Gong face to face. I once estimated that I distributed over 100,000 CDs with Falun Gong information, hung over 20,000 banners and painted over 20,000 posters.
Distributing Informational Materials to Suburbs and Rural Areas
I started to distribute flyers to raise awareness of the persecution in January 2000. Several of us went to nearby villages on our bikes for several hours each trip, covering all the villages.
We were once each carrying a bag of informational materials on our bicyles and heading up the mountainous roads to a village, when it suddenly started raining. A fellow practitioner asked what we should do. I said we should not go home and that we needed to distribute the materials. Since we would not make it to the village, we went to a nearby community and distributed the materials inside the apartment buildings we came across.
I once went to a village with four other practitioners. One practitioner was apprehended. The rest of us sent righteous thoughts in the woods nearby. The man who grabbed the practitioner asked, “What's in your bag?” The practitioner opened his bag and let him see. Seeing that it was all Falun Gong flyers and other materials, the man said, “We're not concerned about Falun Gong here. You can go.” The practitioner joined us later.
Another time, I went to distribute materials with other practitioners and someone reported us. Three practitioners managed to walk away, but another practitioner and I were apprehended and detained in a suburban police substation for two days. I was escorted to the police station and the other practitioner was taken to a detention center. Because I had symptoms of a serious illness for over two hours, I was released.
The next day I went to another village to distribute materials with a practitioner. We finished around midnight. We returned home after biking for more than four hours.
Talking to People and Asking Them to Withdraw from the Party
I started to talk to people about Falun Gong at the beginning of 2002, and about the destructive nature of the Chinese Comunist Party (CCP). I went out every day no matter how hot it was in summer or bitterly cold in winter. I told people that Falun Gong is good, that the alleged Tiananmen self-immolation incident is a CCP lie to frame Falun Gong, and how Falun Gong is practiced in over 100 countries across the world. My fear gradually disappeared in the process.
I smile at people when I talk to them. I say, “Hello! Do you know that the Party has killed over 80 million Chinese people since it took power? It conducts many political movements to kill good people. The alleged Tiananmen self-immolation incident was staged by the CCP to frame Falun Gong and incite hatred against us. Heaven is disintegrating the Party. Only by withdrawing from the Party and its affiliated organizations can one have a safe future. Don't be the Party's victim. Quit your membership in the Party for a safe future.” Many people agreed to renounce their memberships in the Party, the Communist Youth League, and the Communist Young Pioneers.
Once I wrote, “Falun Dafa is great” on a building wall. Two policemen came over and walked around me. They left without a word. Later, a police vehicle came and took me to a police station. Several police officers were having a meeting in the room. I realized this was a good opportunity to talk to them. I smiled and said, “You were deceived. The Tiananmen self-immolation incident was staged by the CCP.”
I continued, “There was a policeman named Hu Dianchen in the south. He kept arresting Falun Gong practitioners. One day his car collided with a big tree and caught fire. He died in the accident. Another policeman was kind to Falun Gong practitioners. He reminded a practitioner who was distributing informational materials to be careful since agents were in the area, looking for practitioners. Because of his kindness, his illness disappeared and he was promoted. There are so many disasters nowadays including earthquakes, landslides, etc. Heaven is disintegrating the Party. Quit it for your own safety!”
When I finished talking, a policeman said, “What you are saying is news to us. Please sit down and tell us more.” I advised them to withdraw from the Party. Four policemen quit the Party and its affiliated organizations on the spot. I silently asked Master, “Master, I have finished telling them and need to go home.” Then, one policeman said, “You can go now.”
Putting Up Posters in Cities, Suburban and Rural Areas
I started to put up posters in 2000. Once when I was putting up a poster, a lady said sternly, “That is my house. Don't post there!” I said, “Hello! I'm putting up these posters so people can know about the persecution.” When I said this, she smiled and said, “All right. Go ahead.”
Another lady came by and asked, “What are you doing?” I said, “I am putting up information about Falun Gong. I hope to raise awareness about the unlawful persecution and to save people.” While she read the poster I asked, “Have you joined the Party?” She said, “Yes, I joined the Communist Young Pioneers.” When I explained why it would be good to withdraw, she agreed to quit.
I was putting up posters one evening three years ago on a utility pole. A black car suddenly stopped beside me, and three policemen stepped out. One said, “Are you still putting up posters?” I was not afraid and said, “You are nice police. Ren Changxia was a police bureau director in Henan. She brutally persecuted Falun Gong practitioners. She died in a car accident but the others in the car survived. You will be rewarded if you are kind to Falun Gong.” They did not bother me. I asked Master to help me. One policeman said, “Please leave quickly.” I left and safely returned home.
Once when I was putting up small posters inside an apartment building, a man asked, “What are you doing?” I said, “I am putting up posters with information about the persecution of Falun Gong so people can know the truth. There have been so many disasters. The CCP is so corrupt. We common people suffer. Only by quitting the Party can one have a safe future. Would you like to quit?” He said, “Okay, I'll quit.”
Whatever I do, I try to conform to the principles of Dafa. Sometimes, practitioners tell me not to go out since they've heard the police will do something on certain days or there's some situation to be concerned about. Once a practitioner told me the provincial police came to our city to have a meeting and asked me not to go out. I was not moved but sent righteous thoughts to eliminate any interference. I did not admit the arrangement of the old forces, but continued my effort to save sentient beings. The time is precious and must not be wasted. We must not be moved by human notions.
