Faced with Persecution I Have Remained Steadfast
Despite thunder, lightning and pouring rain, my wife and I were on our way to watch Master’s video lectures at another practitioner’s home.
As we walked past the school where I used to teach, we were hit by a speeding tractor. My wife was knocked to the ground and I was thrown to the roadside. When I fell, I saw the tractor pass above me. I held only one thought, “I will be fine and will not pressure the driver for money.” I helped my wife get up and found that she was not hurt either.
The tractor finally came to a stop after more than 10 meters, and the driver wanted to take us to a hospital. However, we said that we practice Falun Dafa and would not extort money from him. We told him that he could leave.
The school had let out the students and teachers just before the collision, and several practitioners were in the crowd. They all had witnessed the accident. We brushed the dirt off our clothes and went to watch Master’s lectures.
The word of how we got up after the accident spread in our area, and more than a dozen people from that school, including the principal and the director, started to practice Falun Dafa. Additionally, about 50 people from my village and the adjacent three villages also began Dafa cultivation practice.
I was a new practitioner back then, in my mid-40s. After I had started practicing, my chronic back pain disappeared, and my wife was so impressed that she started practicing too.
Believing in Master and the Fa
Our area suffered greatly under the persecution in October 2006: practitioners were harassed, arrested and Dafa material production sites were destroyed. My wife and I were forced into hiding. After we left, the police repeatedly broke into and ransacked our home and confiscated many of our belongings.
To find our whereabouts, police arrested my younger daughter three times and harassed my other daughter and son. The police extorted 10,500 yuan from my daughters and son. However, they did not find out our whereabouts.
The authorities froze my retirement pension, leaving us with no source of income. However, nothing could change our belief in Master and the Fa.
I got a guard job in a beer factory, and earned three hundred yuan a month, enough to pay for our rent and food. We then bought the equipment for a materials production site and distributed information about the persecution in surrounding counties. For safety reasons, I delivered the materials mostly at night.
Awakening from Grief
My wife suddenly died on April 15, 2013, which brought great hardship. I grieved for more than six months and was unable to concentrate when reading Dafa books. I was almost reduced to an ordinary person and came down with sickness karma.
Furthermore, she had done all the household chores, including the cooking, and helped with producing and delivering the Dafa materials. I couldn’t keep up with life. There was no one to help me or take care of me.
Then, I read Master's Fa,
“Human beings live in delusion and just cannot give up these things. Some people cannot let go of their sons and daughters and claim how good they are, and then they pass away. One may speak of how good one’s mother is, but then she also dies. This person grieves so much that he almost wants to follow her for the rest of his life. Why don’t you think about it? Aren’t they here to torment you? They use this form to make you unable to lead a good life.” (Zhuan Falun)
Master's words awakened me. I told myself that I had to cheer up and continue to follow the path that Master had arranged for me.
My children visited and then returned to their homes after the Chinese New Year. After that, I distributed the Nine Commentaries on the Communist Party and other truth-clarification materials, as well as hung up Dafa informational banners. In addition, I blacked out display boards that maligned Dafa.
After returning home, I thought about my wife who would have had food ready for me on my return after a night of distributing Dafa materials. My mind was filled with sadness. I then realized that I had to pass this test. I had obtained Dafa, and thus there was nothing to feel sad about.
Constitution Gives Right to Sue Jiang Zemin
Because I had too many human notions, I was arrested nine times and 100,000 yuan was extorted from me. However, getting arrested again and again did not frighten me. On the contrary, it made me more rational and more careful.
I went to Qingdao in January 2005. When I was buying my return train ticket, I paid it with paper currency that had truth-clarification words on it. The ticket seller reported me to police. When I got off the train, two police officers stopped me, searched my luggage and parcels and confiscated my copy of Zhuan Falun, an MP3 player and other personal items.
While they took photos of each of the paper currency, I talked about Dafa, including the Tiananmen Self-immolation, a 200 million year-old-stone stone that bears the words “The Chinese Communist Party perishes,”
and how more than 200,000 people have filed lawsuits against Jiang Zemin. I also asked them to quit the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) and explained that as a Party member, they would also be implicated for the atrocities it has committed.
They took me home at 10:00 p.m. and ransacked it. They then took me back to the police station. This was the ninth time that I had been arrested.
The director of the County Domestic Security Division showed me my complaint against Jiang the next day and asked if I had written it.
“This is my criminal complaint letter against Jiang.” I said. “I used my real name. The receipt from the Supreme People's Procuratorate and Supreme People's Court is on my phone.”
The head of the County Domestic Security Division arrived at 3:00 pm, and instructed four officers to draw my blood. I told them that I would sue anyone who tried to force me to do anything I did not want to do.
“You have read my complaint against Jiang Zemin,” I said to the director of the County Domestic Security Division. “Your persecution of me was noted in my complaint. I do not hate you because you are also a victim of the slander and propaganda from the Party. I sued Jiang Zemin to exercise my civil rights.”
He asked who gave me the right to sue Jiang. I replied, “It is the Constitution that gives me this right!”
The head of the County Domestic Security Division said that I could go home. He asked me to not expose them online. I asked if he read the Minghui website, and he nodded.
“Does the Minghui website tell the truth,” I asked, and he just sighed.
