100 More Cases of Falun Gong Practitioners Sentenced to Prison Reported in December 2017, Bringing Total for Year to 974
After decades of communist rule, Chinese judges have long become the regime's rubber stamp to deliver predetermined, unlawful sentences against dissidents and other targeted groups through show trials. In the persecution of Falun Gong, unlawful sentencing has been one of the most common tactics employed by the regime.
Practitioners from Germany and Switzerland attended the conference in Bad Kissingen on January 14. One speaker recounted how he put his experience and education to use at a media company after letting go of his attachments to fame and gain. Other practitioners shared how they improved in their self-cultivation and gained more confidence through interacting with Chinese tourists and government officials.
A family of three was arrested in November 2016 and sentenced in September 2017. They were fined and are currently serving prison terms. The son was beaten in prison and has since become emaciated. The mother and son both suffered mental collapses due to the stress of persecution while imprisoned, and the prison authorities denied the son access to his lawyer, as well as visits from family.
A series of photos describe the experiences of Falun Dafa practitioners in Jiamusi City: "...from taking up the practice to peacefully counteracting the state-sponsored persecution over the past 19 years, it has been an unforgettable journey, filled with both joy and hardship."
The author, now 70 years old, was cured of chronic illnesses soon after learning Falun Dafa and has remained healthy for the past 20 years.
A practitioner realizes that fretting over limited time had been getting in the way of calmly studying the teachings and genuinely cultivating.
