Validating Dafa in Tiananmen Square After Attaining the Fa in Jail
On May 3, 2001 in a busy crowd on Tiananmen Square, a Falun Gong practitioner opened a banner that read "Truthfulness, Compassion, Forbearance" and shouted loudly, "Falun Dafa is good!" Her actions moved many tourists. Someone pulled out a camera and captured this great moment on film. (See attached picture)
After a lot of investigating, we confirmed that this practitioner had attained Dafa [Note: great law and universal principle] while in a detention center in January 2000. She was serving a six-month sentence because of family problems. In the detention center, she met a Falun Gong practitioner who had been illegally arrested. The practitioner patiently explained Dafa to her, told her why Falun Gong was being persecuted, and how to be a good person. It was the mighty virtue of Falun Dafa and the noble behavior of the practitioner that deeply moved the woman. She decided to thoroughly rectify her behavior and become a qualified practitioner according to Truthfulness, Compassion, and Forbearance. Facing the evil persecution of Falun Dafa, she resolutely decided to assist Teacher in the human world by validating Dafa at Tiananmen Square.

Before going to Tiananmen Square, she repeatedly told herself to maintain a righteous mind and to not cooperate with any illegal conduct by the police. Although she was arrested, that very afternoon she openly walked out the front door of the Tiananmen Police Station without being stopped.
Addendum, at Tiananmen Square on May 1 (World Labor Day)
On May 1, 2001, there were many tourists on Tiananmen Square. In the crowd, righteous shouts of "Falun Dafa is good" and "Falun Dafa is the orthodox Fa" were often heard. The police seemed to be out of order for a while and unable to respond. None of the practitioners were arrested; and all safely returned to their homes.
