(Minghui.org) In 2020, a widespread “zero-out” campaign (a concerted effort to force every single practitioner on the CCP’s blacklists to renounce Falun Dafa) began across China. In Anshan City and Haicheng City in Liaoning Province, the police and community staff repeatedly harassed practitioners through phone calls and visits. They threatened their relatives’ schooling and jobs to pressure practitioners to sign statements renouncing their faith. Some with weak righteous thoughts have signed and done things that practitioners should not do. This “zero-out” persecution campaign is still going on.

After July 20, 1999, the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) used all kinds of despicable means to pressure practitioners to give up their belief and coerce them to write the three statements. Many practitioners felt overwhelmed by the sudden persecution and signed against their will. Now, twenty years later, at the final stage of Fa-rectification the CCP is again pressuring practitioners to sign documents and say they renounce Falun Dafa. 

The CCP claims that it will remove practitioners from its blacklist and not come back. They attempt to trick practitioners into signing the three statements. Their intention is very obviously to fundamentally destroy the faith of Dafa practitioners. The old forces are using the so-called final test to weed out disciples.

It is heartbreaking to see the list of practitioners’ “solemn statements” on the Minghui website—this shows how many practitioners have given in and signed the three statements. 

This was understandable at the beginning of the persecution—we were still immature in cultivation, had many human attachments and our righteous thoughts were not strong or firm. Since then, Master has given us opportunities to do well. But now we have come through the most difficult time, if we still cannot maintain righteous thoughts, and once again compromise our cultivation and sign the three statements, how can we call ourselves genuine Dafa disciples. Haven’t we let down Master’s strenuous efforts to save us?

Perhaps those practitioners who’ve signed don’t realize that the three statements are a slander against Dafa and disrespect our Master.

I wished to write this short article to call on all practitioners to maintain their righteous thoughts, resist this persecution, and to continue clarifying the truth. Let’s all clearly see through the CCP’s last attempt to pull us down. Don’t sign it out of fear. Although fear may make us fluctuate inside at times, we must have the determination to let it go and remain steadfast. I believe that as long as we have the determination, this so-called “zero-out” persecution will no longer exist. Master will not allow it, the Fa-rectification will not allow it—the power of Dafa is boundless.
