Mr. Deng's third hunger strike has lasted over seven months and he is extremely weak. Back in his hometown, villagers gathered names on a petition calling for his release. They wrote: “We witnessed how Mr. Deng turned into a better person because of Falun Gong and we are happy for him. We are also thankful for the great contributions he has made to the village. We must help and support innocent people like him.”
Falun Gong displays at various attractions in Taiwan give Mainland Chinese tourists a chance to learn the truth behind the persecution of the meditation. “They need to know the truth about the persecution, and free themselves from the mind control of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP),” said one volunteer who raises awareness at tourist sites every day.
Practitioners offered free instruction to learn the Falun Gong exercises at the event and distributed information to passersby. They also collected signatures on a petition calling for the prosecution of Jiang Zemin, the former head of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) who initiated the persecution of Falun Gong in 1999.
A steady stream of people came to learn the exercises. Many said they wished to learn more and left their contact information.
Nine practitioners, mostly women, ranging in age from 60 to 72, were tried for practicing Falun Gong. They were handcuffed and shackled during the entire hearing.
Seventy-three year-old husband of a practitioner describes how he has benefited from his wife’s twenty years of cultivation practice. “I feel most fortunate to be a family member of a Falun Dafa practitioner.”
