An Appeal from an Awakened Senior Citizen in Hunan Province, China

Within the murky depths of the human world, being human means going through a lifetime of challenges and hardships. It is especially lamentable for those who live under the Chinese Communist Party's (CCP) tyrannical suppression, deception, and brainwashing. I am a man who is nearly 70 years old. I often reflect on segments of history, such as the "Three Anti's Campaign," the "Five Anti's Campaign," the "Anti-rightist Movement," the "Great Leap Forward," the "Great Cultural Revolution," the "Tiananmen Square Massacre," and the persecution of Falun Gong.

When I look back at my life, I feel that the decades were spent in a nightmare. When I ponder over the past, a feeling of dreariness overtakes me. Throughout my life, I was the same as all other Chinese people. That is, I bought into the hallucinations of the CCP either actively or passively. We were toyed with by the Party during the times of "fighting with Heaven and Earth," "not forgetting the class struggle," "political thoughts leading all," etc. After the blighted decades and an empty life, only an accumulated sadness for the human condition was left in my heart. During the last 10 or so years, I was so tired of this earthly world and indifferent to the land of the living that I had no interest in learning about the situation of Falun Gong; I was even unwilling to "meddle" in the cases of local Falun Gong practitioners being arrested. It was only when I saw the materials detailing the facts about Falun Gong and the reality of the brutal persecution on my door-step in 2004 and heard the truth from a practitioner in a face-to-face meeting that my numb conscience gradually began to awaken.

After reading Nine Commentaries on the Communist Party in 2005, my heart had finally awakened. I felt deeply regretful and gave out a great sigh; I had been so ignorant and numb as a result of the CCP's poisonous culture and then wasted decades of this human life that I can never regain. I sighed because nobody knows how many more people in China are like me. Moreover, some of them are still unaware of the fact that their whole lives are soaked in the venom of the evil Party, and this is so even in the face of death. At the end of 2005, I made the most sacred decision in my life. Just as over tens of millions of people who have regained their consciences have done, I completely renounced my membership in the most evil thing in the world, the regime, to cleanse myself of the shame for having been a member of it.

I also want to expose some evildoings that I know about. These were committed by the local Gestapo like 610 Office who solely persecute Falun Gong, the police, and some despicable and condemnable villains.

On October 19th, 2003, Ms. Zheng Guojun, a Falun Gong practitioner, died as the result of being persecuted by the 610 Offices and the police stations in the Beihu District and Binzhou City. Before she practised Falun Gong, she had suffered from many diseases. She was considered "half-dead" although she was only over 50 years old then. She had hypertension, heart disease, uterine prolapse, serious chronic bronchial asthma, etc. After she began to practise Falun Gong, she experienced amazing changes both physically and mentally. It was witnessed by everyone who knew her that Falun Gong had granted her a second life. There is a good virtue for everyday persons: "A drop of favour should be returned by a fountain of gratitude." However, for a cultivator, the realm is believed to be even higher. For this reason alone, after Jiang Zemin's CCP regime began to persecute Falun Gong and slander the Master of Falun Gong in 1999, Ms. Deng Guojun never stopped speaking out on behalf of Falun Gong. She went to Beijing to protest, and she clarified the truth to the world's people, including the local 610 Office staffers and policemen, both verbally and by using materials. From Ms. Deng Guojun, people saw the magnanimity of Falun Gong practitioners and the grandness of Mr. Li Hongzhi, the Master of Falun Gong, and people came to understand to some degree the reason for the persecution against Falun Gong. The local 610 Offices and police stations in the Beihu District and Binzhou City, which were engaged in the persecution of Falun Gong, regarded her as an eyesore and a thorn in their flesh. They sought to persecute her by any despicable and wicked means, one of which was to suborn convicts with no conscience or respectability to follow and monitor her.

Ms. Deng used to be an employee of a state-owned workplace and lived at the residential compound of the waste recycling company (her husband's workplace) in the Suxian District. Her husband had passed away several years before. The 610 Office and the Beihu District police station brought over a person name Lu Liangkai, who was laid-off from the same company and lived in the house opposite Deng Guojun's, to follow and monitor her. In late 2000 two practitioners from Jiahe County were reported and then arrested when they lodged in her house. Deng Guojun was also arrested herself and sentenced to one year of forced labour. On August 12th, 2002, when she sat at the gate to the yard and saw an aged practitioner passing by, she naturally greeted him and invited him in. Lu Liangkai, however, immediately called the police station and the 610 Office in the Beihu District on his mobile phone. In less than ten minutes, five policemen from the Beihu District arrived by car to search and arrest them. Two days later, the policemen returned and ransacked Deng Guojun's house. Later, we heard that the aged practitioner arrested along with Deng Guojun was a retired employee of the Service Building in Beihu District named Lei Baoliang. Ms. Deng and Lei Baoliang were secretly sentenced to three years and one year of imprisonment, respectively, by the Beihu District Court. Both were detained at the No. 2 Detention Centre of Binzhou City. I never saw Deng Guojun again. Fourteen months later, she died as the result of horrific persecution on October 19th, 2003. She spent almost all her time from 1999 until her death in prison during the so-called "best times for human rights in China" as proclaimed by dictator Jiang Zemin.

Falun Gong practitioners emphasise "Truthfulness-Benevolence-Forbearance" in their cultivation. They are a group of good people. Especially during the moral decline and corruption in today's society, Falun Gong is the sole hope for the upgrading of human morality and the revival of the ruined Chinese traditions. None of the practitioners I know are like what is described in the CCP's slander. They cultivate their hearts and exercise their bodies; they never fight for fame and profit; they always think of others and possess noble personalities. On the contrary, the evil Party simply sticks to its principles of falseness, evilness, and violence and demonises us and our offspring so as to destroy the Chinese nation and even all of mankind. All its organisations, like the 610 Offices, the police, Procuratorate, and the courts on different levels always trump up fabricated charges to persecute Falun Gong practitioners, and they knowingly abuse the laws. Listen up, those in the CCP organisations who are directly involved in the persecution: Where are your brains, where are your own thoughts, and where are your consciences? Are you really willing to serve as "hatchet men" that are no different from walking corpses for the evil regime? You should know that the Party always "gives up the pawns to save the chariots" after the hatchet men serve their purpose and when it has an "image crisis." During the decades of the CCP's reign, haven't the pawns been repeatedly killed off as scapegoats? I really hope you can reconsider it: Are you really willing to live with this bloody errand?

Lu Liangkai, you are you parents' child. You also have a wife and child, and you are already 45 years old. Life is not easy. You sold your dignity and human nature for the sake of self, and you helped the tyrant to do evil. Haven't you thought about why you and your wife were laid off? Who created the unfair distribution and great disparity between the poor and rich? Isn't it the corrupt and evil CCP? "A gentleman makes money in the right way." Can you spend your money (earned at the expense of dignity and conscience) with ease? Even if you had some conflicts with Deng Guojun or her husband, how could you live with yourself after "killing others with a borrowed knife?" Of course, they were just the weak and the old in society! To speak on a higher level, they were cultivators who cultivated in the Buddha Law and in line with the cosmic Great Law of "Truthfulness-Benevolence-Endurance." In history, no one who did harm to cultivators gained good results; they were punished with retribution sooner or later, and even their family members and offspring were embroiled in the retribution. Even killing an ordinary person means one owes a life. This life debt will be paid back, either in this lifetime or in your coming lifetime. Beyond that, you have killed a Falun Dafa practitioner; nobody can tell now how big your crime is! Why was it wrong for Deng Guojun to practise cultivation, to try to be a good person, to keep fit, and to seek to be kind? You yourself have confessed that "I worked for them for one year," by which your dirty and ugly dealings with the 610 Office and police station in the Beihu District was totally revealed. Your wretched and despicable end awaits you.

Chinese people, please quickly awaken and reclaim your innocence and conscience. Please sharpen your eyes and condemn the malefactors like Lu Kailiang. Let's completely recognise the evil essence of the CCP. Please read the Nine Commentaries on the Communist Party . Renounce and disintegrate the CCP, and recall the morality and standards that we should adhere to. This is the only way a new China can emerge.
