Falun Gong Undaunted by 15 Years Persecution Wins Respect of Chinese People
The Chinese Communist Party’s (CCP) despotic persecution of
Falun Gong has lasted for 15 years,
Some Falun Gong practitioners were social elites but later
became victims of the persecution.
They were jailed and murdered, some became homeless, some
escaped into exile, leaving behind a broken, sad family,
in addition, some practitioners have been helpless victims of
live organ harvesting.
The CCP incites vitriolic hatred, harassing and intimidating
practitioners so that they have have no place to stay.
However, Falun Gong practitioners still insist on telling people
the beauty of Falun Dafa, and clarifying the truth of the persecution.
They display the determination of the Dafa practice
and unwavering demeanor,
They certainly have achieved world recognition.
15 years have passed, and more and more people and countries
have come to know the Falun Gong group.
Hu Jia, China-based activist: “In my experiences, in detention
centers, black jails, labor camps and prisons,
Falun Gong practitioners have displayed respectful
tenacity and determination.
Firstly, they are kind-hearted; secondly, they are very united.
Although they were strictly monitored, they still remained
united and resisted the brutal persecution in jails.
This spirit indeed inspires many people in a positive way.”
Miao Jue, a nun: “After I read the truth-clarification material,
I understand how a human being should behave, how to work,
and how to adhere to the righteous view of life and the universe.
They broke through the horror of the CCP, insisting on their
belief and respect for Master, they are remarkable,
Falun Gong practitioners live in different parts of the world.
They do a good job at workplace, using their spare time and
their own money to study various technologies and skills so as
to rescue practitioners being detained in Mainland China.
Hu Jia says that Falun Gong have three major media
and some anti-censorship software,
it widely influences different levels of Chinese people
and social groups.
Hu Jia: “Falun Gong tenaciously constrains a lot of
the CCP forces of maintaining the stability.
Otherwise, the pressure we face would be greater.
During the CCP’s entire persecution process,
it also tests people’s conscience and courage.
It did test out some remarkable social conscience,
such as the human rights lawyer Gao Zhisheng.”
Hu Jun, founder of Human Rights Campaign in China:
“Falun Gong provides a platform for freedom of expression.
For China’s democratic process, for Chinese people’s united
power and overthrowing the tyranny,
they did a significant and far-reaching job.”
Every year on April 25, the global Falun Gong practitioners
gather together in front of the Chinese Embassy.
They mourn those practitioners who have been
persecuted to death in China.
Bu Dongwei, who participated in the 4.25 activity in San
Francisco in the U.S. last year,
was one of the practitioners that went to China’s state council
appealing office on April 25, 1999.
He told journalists that they just went there to report the
harassment they encountered,
they were rational and peaceful.
He said that for Chinese people living in China, one is either
a violent citizen or obedience.
However, Falun Gong sets an example of “we don’t cooperate
with the evil CCP but we are not violent.”
Over the past 14 years, facing the crucial suppression,
Falun Gong has never used violence to resist.
Miao Jue: “In exercising their civil rights,
Falun Gong are peaceful,
They paid their life to get back their rights
from the tyranny of the CCP.
They use compassionate and peaceful methods to obtain it.
I hope China can accept Falun Gong, and allow Falun Gong
practice back into China.
Thus Falun Gong can teach Chinese civilians,
all Chinese people can practice Falun Dafa.
As a result, Chinese people would be free from the CCP’s rule
of chaos, violence and horror that has lasted for the past 50 years.”
Mr. Chen, who also participated in the San Francisco event
in April 25, 2013 says that he is not a Falun Gong practitioner.
He was a political prisoner being held in Jiangxi Jail in China.
He witnessed a Falun Gong practitioner in jail being brutally
He said: “Many kind people died, after I saw it,
my hands were trembling.”
A journalist asked him the reason he took part in the 4.25 event,
he said: “I came to support, this is my duty and my conscience.”
15 years have passed, Falun Gong practitioners at home
and abroad, no matter which position, how wealthy, and
how knowledgeable they are,
regardless of whether they have a comfortable home or
they are forced to leave home,
they are still insisting on telling people the truth about
the CCP’s persecution of Falun Gong.
Falun Gong practitioners say that without an end of the persecution,
clarifying the truth and against the persecution would never stop.
