(Minghui.org) As people across China celebrate the Chinese New Year holiday season, many Falun Dafa practitioners are unable to get together with their families because they're still being detained for their faith.

Since the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) launched a nationwide campaign to wipe out Falun Dafa in July 1999, its practitioners have been working tirelessly to expose the CCP's lies about the practice and urge people to sever ties with the CCP to avoid being held responsible when the CCP is brought to justice for its crimes.

Many practitioners have been arrested and detained for their efforts to clarify the truth. They managed to send in their wishes to Master Li to wish him a Happy Chinese New Year. They said that, while they have no freedom behind bars, nothing can shake their firm faith in Falun Dafa.

A group of practitioners detained in Jinan Women's Prison in Shandong Province wrote, “Although we are behind bars, we can feel that Master is by our side protecting us and giving us strength at all times. In this dark den of evil, we have not forgotten our mission and we've been clarifying the truth to inmates so that they can also be saved. We trust that the day is near to reunite with Master!”

Some of the well-wishers are being detained in the following facilities:

Jilin Prison, Jilin City Detention Center, Gongzhuling Prison, Siping City Detention Center, and Jilin Women's Prison in Jilin ProvinceArongqi Detention Center, Baoanzhao Prison, and Hohhot Women's Prison in Inner MongoliaHangzhou Detention Center and Zhejiang Women's Prison in Zhejiang ProvinceTianjin Women's PrisonShandong Province PrisonFanjiatai Prison in Hubei Province
