  • The Historic April 25 Demonstration

    Eighteen years ago, more than 10,000 Falun Gong practitioners held a peaceful demonstration at the National Appeals Office in Beijing on April 25, 1999, seeking the release of several practitioners unjustly arrested days before.
  • A Personal Account Of the Historic April 25th Appeal

    April 25, 2017 was the 18th anniversary of approximately 10,000 Falun Gong practitioners peacefully protesting to the central government in Beijing. I was lucky enough to be one of those who experienced that extraordinary moment in Chinese history.
  • The CCP Is Against China's Best Interests

    For the last 17 years, Falun Gong practitioners have demonstrated great compassion in their peaceful resistance to the brutal persecution, initiated by Jiang Zemin, the former head of the communist regime. They firmly uphold their faith, courageously expose the atrocities committed by the communist authorities, and do not hesitate to clarify the truth about this cultivation practice for the benefit of others.
  • Research Finds Falun Gong Practice Improves Cancer Survival Rate

    “Falun Gong practice can help terminal cancer patients survive significantly longer, in addition to notable symptom improvement,” concluded a paper recently published in the Journal of Clinical Oncology, which is published by the American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO).
  • The Dog Meows: Zhou Yongkang Swears Human Rights Protection in His Law Enforcement

    Zhou Yongkang, one of the members of the Standing Committee of the Political Bureau of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP)— particularly known as one of the masterminds behind the CCP's persecution of Falun Gong—has committed enormous crimes against humanity in the persecution of Falun Gong practitioners. Due to the notorious role he has played he has been become quite infamous.
  • The Chinese Government Never Officially "Banned" Falun Gong, Part 1

    After July 20, 1999, media and even scholarly works outside of China have often used the words, "The Chinese government has banned Falun Gong since July of 1999." It is my belief that the Chinese Communist Party has never had a legal basis for its eleven-year persecution of Falun Gong, because the Chinese government never officially banned Falun Gong.
  • The Historic Change in People's Hearts

    This recent event of an entire village of 300 families choosing to support a Falun Gong practitioner who is being persecuted is a profound act of Chinese people choosing justice in the face of ongoing tyranny. Mengzi (Mencius) stated: “Not corrupted by wealth, not shaken by poverty, not giving in to power. This is a real man.” The history of good defeating evil was written by those real men who do not give in to power.
  • Lessons from History: What Happens When Nations “Curry Favour with the Wicked Regime”

    The founder of Falun Gong, Mr. Li Hongzhi published a new article on May 3, 2012, “To Choose.” It has profound meaning. My understanding of one sentence in the article, “Curry favour with the wicked regime, and you’ll be duped by demons” is that this is advising people to not curry favour with the wicked regime for short-term gain thus condoning the evil, eventually harming all mankind, including your own country's people.
  • Chinese Communist Party's Scandalous Law Enforcement: The Good Are Attacked While the Bad Run Riot

    Falun Gong teaches its practitioners to conduct themselves according to the principles of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance in their work and everyday life. To eradicate Falun Gong, the CCP releases the criminals who undermine social stability and focuses on arresting Falun Gong practitioners who merely want to be good people. In the history of mankind, has anyone seen such a society, where the good and bad are so totally reversed?
  • Two Doctors: One Takes Bribes, the Other Declines

    From these two examples, it is clear that a good doctor is different from a bad doctor. Good doctors always have a conscience to restrain their behaviour. Falun Gong guides people to become good persons and not do bad things. Unfortunately, this righteous Dafa has been persecuted by the CCP for thirteen years. How can people understand it? The CCP, clearly vicious, persecutes good people.
  • The Crimes of Zhou Yongkang and His Ending

    As more and more truth is exposed, Zhou will be brought to justice. We believe that his ending will not be pretty. Those who are still blindly following Jiang Zemin and Zhou Yongkang in persecuting Falun Gong should take note and learn from these lessons.
  • The Twisted Logic Behind the Chinese Communist Party's Excuses for Persecution

    The CCP has stated, “Anything that's supported by the enemy, we have to oppose.” Over the course of the CCP's history, the landowners, the wealthy peasants, the capitalists, and the rightists were all its enemies and they were bound to be swept out. So inherently, there's no difference in the persecution of Falun Gong. The CCP's crimes against humanity have never stopped, only now it has put on the cloak of “Law” and created a big pile of false accusations – thus it has become even more deceptive.
  • The Horrific Conduct of Wang Lijun, Who Is Suspected of Harvesting Organs from the Living

    The man known as the “Supreme Heroic Role Model of China's Police” was not doing the work that he was supposed to be doing. During his reign as a powerful police chief, thousands of “test objects”, human beings, disappeared without explanation. It's likely that Wang has records of his victims, which are now in the hands of the Central Government. Let's hope that the extent of his crimes will eventually come to light, and that this kind of tragedy will never be repeated.
  • Some of my memories in cultivation

    The journeys we made every year between 1995 and 1998 to China from Sweden to visit fellow practitioners were precious. We visited the Chinese practitioners in their homes and were received like family members. Their stories were so extraordinary and moving and their steadfast belief in Dafa helped me to move forward faster in cultivation.
  • Falun Dafa Saved a Child with Cerebral Palsy

    My son is ten years old. He was a premature baby and was born three months earlier than the due date. I was admitted to the hospital more than two weeks before his birth. He weighed only about 4 lbs when he was born. The doctor told me it would be hard for him to survive, and even if he did survive, he would have cerebral palsy. Even my mother-in-law suggested I abort the child, but I didn't listen to them.
