A Story of a Heavy Coat in Weifang City, Shandong Province in China

In 2000, I was held at the Weifang City Detention Centre for peacefuly appealing in Beijing for a stop to the persecution of Falun Gong. Luckily, another person who practices Falun Gong took care of my daughter during that time, as she was only ten years old. One day, during my break at the detention centre, a section chief from the prosecutor's department sent a few words of greeting from a friend of his whilst he was stood on the other side ofthe perimeter fence. A couple of days later, his friend had him deliver to me a cotton quilt, a heavy coat and 100 yuan(1). He refused to tell me his friend's name. He asked me to put the coat on and said, "Your face shows that you look very cold."

I put on the coat and felt so warm. It was a feeling that came from the depth of my heart; a warmth that was so welcome in this dismal, cold and dark-hearted detention centre. Dafa was with me, which made my heart feel at ease. I know the truth about Falun Gong, which former Chinese President Jiang Zemin and his regime have been trying to damage and have been constantly slandering. It was encouraging to see acting righteously towards Falun Gong.

Later, I found out that the section chief's friend is the neighbour of my boss, who played the leading role in persecuting me. I used to send Falun Gong books and other related information to my boss, but she just tossed them aside and said, "What are you doing?! I cannot believe that you still send me these materials at such a time!" In contrast, her neighbour happened to be there and she picked up the books and the other materials and said, "Let me read those."

The truth is that my boss' neighbour read the book and liked it. She learned about my case from my boss and so later she asked her friend who works in the prosecutor's office to deliver the bedding, clothing and money.
