Talking to People in China about Falun Gong Face-to-Face
(Minghui.org) Since Jiang Zemin, former leader of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP), launched the persecution of Falun Gong in July 1999, all of the state-run media have attacked and slandered Falun Gong. This relentless campaign to stir up hatred has deceived not only the Chinese people but also the world.
In order to help people understand the truth about Falun Gong and the persecution, I often go to places where people congregate and talk to them about any misunderstandings they might have.
One day, I saw a man sitting on the steps in front a shop folding a paper with only one hand. I walked over and sat next to him. He looked like he was in bad shape. “How many years you have been like this?” I asked. I told him that I too once had serious health problems.
He looked at me curiously and began asking me questions, like an interrogation.
I told him with a smile, “I had a blockage in my brain and a heart attack.”
“How did you recover?” he asked.
“I recovered by practicing Falun Gong. I have a sister who had kidney failure. She learned Falun Gong, and her illnesses soon disappeared. I learned from her,” I told him.
The man told me that he used to be a Communist Party secretary at the local government level and was in charge of Falun Gong issues. He had a cerebral hemorrhage eight years ago and had to retire.
He had read the book Zhuan Falun but couldn't understand some parts. However, he was sure that Falun Gong practitioners are good people. “If everyone practices Falun Gong, society would certainly become better,” he said.
He said that he treated practitioners kindly. He let them sit when he talked to them, and he gave them water to drink and showed them respect. Many others in his position treated practitioners as enemies.
I suggested that he read Zhuan Falun again.
I asked him if he had read the Nine Commentaries on the Communist Party. He said that he had, but he found some of it hard to believe.
I told him that when the Nine Commentaries was published, former high ranking official Zeng Qinghong was going to denounce the book, but he gave up in the end, as all the facts and figures were quoted from past official reports.
I continued, “The Communist Party has killed millions of people in its numerous political campaigns. It has become extremely corrupt and committed many crimes. Heaven and earth won't let them off the hook. You are a good person; you'd better distance yourself from the Party and make a choice of conscience and morality. You should quit the Party and choose a bright future for yourself.” He agreed to renounce his Party membership.
Whenever I go out and talk to people, I always tell them how ill I was and how I recovered by practicing Falun Gong. If people are willing to listen, I also tell them about the self-immolation incident on Tiananmen Square, a hoax fabricated by the CCP to incite hatred against Falun Gong.
The majority of people understand the truth this way and agree to quit the Party. I am so happy to see so many people choosing a good future for themselves.
