(Minghui.org) A neighbor told me that the director of the Women’s Federation in the village was looking for me, so I went to her office on September 2, 2021. However, the director was not there, just a clerk. He didn’t know why the director wanted to see me, so I explained the facts about Falun Dafa to him and told him how popular it is around the world. He appeared supportive but dared not take the brochure I offered him.
The director called my husband the following day and wanted to come over to talk to me. I decided to go and see her instead.
I went to the office at 9 the next morning. A few villagers were already there, and the clerks and the director were busy collecting fees from them.
I heard one villager say, “The CCP [Chinese Communist Party] is fairly good!”
History of the CCP
So I took the opportunity to remind them about the Party’s relatively short history and its political movements, such as the Three-anti and the Five-anti campaigns, the Anti-Rightist Movement, the Great Leap Forward, the Cultural Revolution, and so on, all of which resulted in the persecution of nearly half of the Chinese population.
I informed them that more Chinese have died in peacetime under communist rule than in the two World Wars combined. The three-year “natural” disaster that led to the Great Famine starved countless Chinese, even though the weather in those years was mild and there weren’t any natural disasters. It was the foolish policy of the Communist Party that killed people.
The CCP wanted to surpass the UK and the United States in five to 10 years and told people to smelt iron and steel, leaving fewer people to harvest the crops. So the grain was left to rot in the fields. Over 40 million people died of starvation.
Espousing the Greatness of the CCP
Another villager echoed the first villager and said, “Life is so comfortable now, don’t complain about this or that.”
“Do you think that life is now settled because the CCP has loosened the reins a little?” I asked. “In the past, you would have been accused of promoting capitalism if you planted vegetables outside your front door and you’d be put in jail if you ran a business. Deng [Xiaoping] personally admitted that Hong Kong and Taiwan led the mainland by 50 years in terms of economy, the military, and education.
“If it wasn’t for the Communist Party, hard-working Chinese would have been rich long ago. The Party will deceive you in every way when it wants to use you, and it will destroy you when it thinks you are a threat. Even President Liu [Shaoqi] died brutally. Now the CCP’s butcher’s knife is attacking Falun Dafa practitioners. I can truly see that the CCP is an out-and-out cult.”
Another villager echoed the first one’s comment, saying, “Life definitely is better now.”
I remarked, “You think our country is strong and life is good. Why are so many people emigrating? Most CCP officials are corrupt. They ask us to be patriotic, while they steal money and hide it overseas. How many high-ranking officials send their children abroad to live and study?”
Clarifying the Truth
By this time, the director had finished her work and asked me to come to her office. Another villager walked in at the same time. I continued to clarify the truth to them and said, “I might have become a terrible person and done a lot of bad things long ago had I not practiced Falun Dafa. Dafa taught me how to be a good person.
Master Li [Falun Dafa’s founder] taught us to consider others’ needs at all times. When conflicts arise, even if we are not at fault, we should think more about our own shortcomings and be tolerant. After I practiced Dafa, my supervisors at the time saw how I’d changed and praised me at meetings all the time.”
I also told them how I’d been taken to a forced labor camp, put in jail, and tortured. Even when I was enduring all that pain, I adhered to the principles of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance and treated those who tortured me kindly.
I told them that it is completely legal to practice Falun Dafa in China, because there is no law that deems it is illegal. The 2011 Press and Publication Administration Document No. 50 abolished the decision to prohibit the publication of Falun Dafa books.
The two of them listened and did not say a word. I went on to tell them why I’d filed a criminal complaint against Jiang Zemin. It was because Jiang, with his power and out of jealousy, defied the law and insisted on persecuting Falun Dafa. As a Dafa practitioner, I endured immeasurable pain and suffered mentally and physically, so I had to sue him.
The director then asked me if I thought I was doing well now, to which I replied, “Because of the persecution, I lost my job and my family was also affected. We are poor, but my life is solid. Can you say that I caused trouble in the village? Did I do anything wrong?”
They agreed I had not.
I continued, “You asked me to come here today, not because I did something wrong, but because I practice Falun Dafa. You are not thinking on behalf of the people but for the CCP. All those who participate in the persecution will be held accountable in the future.” They both lowered their heads in shame.
In the end, I said, “Remember ‘Falun Dafa is good, Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good.’”
They agreed. I gave them QR codes so that they could read the Nine Commentaries on the Communist Party and The Devil is Ruling Our World. They thanked me.
When I passed the building entrance, a member of the village committee bowed his head in front of everyone and praised Falun Dafa.
