Practitioners Stop a Meeting Held to Defame Dafa at the Chaoyanggou Forced Labor Camp
Practitioners in Chaoyanggou Labor Camp Clarify the Truth
In 2000, I went to Beijing's Tiananmen Square to validate Dafa and was detained in the Chaoyanggou Labor Camp in Changchun. The guards abused and beat Dafa practitioners in order to prevent them from practicing the exercises. They even used various torture devices to torture Dafa practitioners. Sometimes, they used other means to confuse practitioners in an attempt to make them give up their belief. Police would also utilize convicted criminals to savagely punish and torture practitioners. Dafa practitioners told them they practiced Falun Dafa in order to be a good people.
Under these conditions, many practitioners clarified the truth with compassionate hearts to the people who persecuted them. When they experienced these tribulations, they recited Teacher's Fa [law or way of righteousness] silently and treated the situation with the mentality of a cultivator. Sometimes, they would obtain one of Teacher's most recent articles. When it was quiet, in the middle of the night, they took out the article to study and recite it. Each article was circulated from practitioner to practitioner. With the Fa of Teacher as their guide, Dafa practitioners became more resolute, making those practitioners who had gone astray also become clear-minded and write a "Solemn Declaration" [a statement reversing their previous denunciation of Falun Dafa].
Dafa practitioners clarified the truth using any appropriate opportunity, making many criminals and policemen change their attitude toward Falun Dafa and establishing a correct understanding of Dafa. Many criminals said, "Falun Dafa is good" and "Falun Gong practitioners are good people." Some criminals said they would study the Fa in the future. Dafa's power was able to save some people and change the evil environment.
Dafa Practitioners' Righteous Actions End a Meeting to Slander Dafa in the Labor Camp
In April 2001, at a meeting for slandering Dafa in the Chaoyanggou Labor Camp in Changchun, two so-called scholars came to the labor camp to talk about science. Police forced all practitioners to attend the meeting. One practitioner instantly refused to join it. He said that if he were forced to attend, he would clarify the truth of Falun Dafa at the meeting and point out the unfairness of how Falun Dafa and its founder are being treated by Jiang Zemin. The guards became flustered, because representatives of the "610 Office" [an agency specifically created to persecute Falun Gong, with absolute power over each level of administration in the Party and all other political and judiciary systems] were to participate in the meeting as well . The labor camp immediately sent several policemen of various ranks to talk to this practitioner. The solid attitude of this practitioner made them retreat one by one.
On the day of the meeting, a policeman insisted that the practitioner participate and threatened him to remain silent. This practitioner sent righteous thoughts and insisted that he would not attend. The policeman shouted and slapped the practitioner's face many times. Then he took the practitioner to a room to electrically shock him. The sound of the electric shocks continued along with the shouts of the police. This practitioner continued to remain firm. He had been sending righteous thoughts throughout the ordeal. The policemen became tired, saying: "To participate in the meeting you need to wear a prison uniform. Find a prison uniform and put it on him. He must attend the meeting." The practitioner did not acknowledge the arrangements of the old forces and refused to wear the prison uniform. Although 30 people stood inside the room, nobody could find a prison uniform that fit this practitioner. Finally a guard said, "Find several people to watch him, he does not need to go to the meeting."
In the meeting, when the authorities began to defame Falun Dafa, some practitioners stood up and shouted in succession, "Falun Dafa is good," "Restore the good reputation of Teacher." The police hurriedly removed these practitioners from the meeting place. Those people from the "610 office" lowered their heads and hurried out. As a result, the meeting to defame Dafa ended.
