Open Discussion

  • The Chinese Prison System I Know

    When higher authorities come to inspect, the centre does something to ensure a favourable review. For example, there is usually no meat for the inmates, but during the inspection a big slice of meat will be put into every inmate's bowl. But the inmates are told beforehand, "You are not allowed to eat it!" Then when the inspection is over, all the meat is collected. Some inmates were so starved that they ate the meat. As a result, they were beaten first, then thrown into a pool to soak, then exposed to the hot sun.
  • China's Tuanhe Forced Labour Camp Officials Plot to Deceive Investigators from the UN International Labour Organisation

    It was hard, solemn, and stirring to make the choice, because they hoped to take the rare chance to tell the international community the truth. But on the other hand they were worried about his safety. Meanwhile, some other Falun Gong practitioners, ignoring their life or death situation, were ready to rush out to meet the visitors in order to tell them the inside story about the persecution.
  • How the Former President of China Jiang Zemin and his Regime's Persecution of Falun Gong is in Violation of the Law

    The Jiang regime's persecution of Falun Gong has not only violated international human rights principles, but also severely violated the current Chinese Constitution and Laws. In order to deceive the public, Jiang Zemin has gone all out in taking advantage of superficial regulations to cover up his real motives, and disguised with the so-called "legal" lingo, he has brutally trampled human rights. In this paper, I will analyse how the persecution of Falun Gong is in direct violation of Chinese Law from several perspectives.
  • The Persecution of Falun Gong Outside China: Phone Tapping

    Tapping the phones of Falun Gong practitioners outside of China by Chinese embassies is a common practice, as there are numerous cases to prove this, some of which are evidence in lawsuits against the former president of China Jiang Zemin and the Chinese embassies. The persecution of Falun Gong is obviously not limited to China; there are officials and staff of the Chinese embassies and consulates putting a large amount of effort into the monitoring of Falun Gong practitioners' phone conversations outside of China.
  • Physically Weak and Suffering from Insomnia for Decades, My Life Changed After Practicing Falun Gong

    After being weak and unhappy for decades, my life changed completely. I felt so much better and could eat all kinds of foods that I dared not eat before. My wife remarked over and over on how much better I looked. When I rode my bike to my brother's place, I did not feel as tired as I was before. On the next day, I could still ride my bike to go to my other brother's place. My face turned a ruddy colour, and my weight also increased to a healthy level. Everyone around me was amazed by my dramatic improvement.
  • A Life Beset With Chronic Illness Is Renewed by Falun Dafa

    I lay in bed, without being able to get up, for more than four months. Looking at my husband and daughter who were both tired and worried, and looking at my own condition, I felt that I would rather die. Bedridden day in day out, I would not have survived without the aid of the injections. I was a huge burden to my husband and daughter. At one point, one of my neighbours helped to prepare for my funeral.
  • Why is Falun Gong Important to People All Over the World?

    In 1992, Falun Gong was introduced to the public by Mr. Li Hongzhi. Those who have been close to Falun Gong practitioners would attest to the inherent goodness of this practice, and how it has completely changed people for the better. Through the practice, elderly people have become healthier, couples on the verge of divorce were brought back together, selfish and crafty businessmen changed to follow more upright business ethics, and young men and women enticed by the deviated notions of today's youth stopped indulging in self-destructive activities and became noble men and women.
  • Is the "Six Prohibitions" Notice Announced in July of 1999 Included in the Recent Termination of Illegal Policies by the Ministry of Public Security?

    Article 35 of the Constitution of the People's Republic of China states: "The citizens of the People's Republic of China enjoy the freedom of speech, publication, association, parade, and demonstration." The "Six Prohibitions" deprived citizens of their freedom of association, demonstration, and speech. The Constitution is the overall law of the nation. Any other laws or local regulations contradicting the Constitution should not be enforceable.
  • Falun Gong Practice Enabled Me to Say Goodbye to the Oxygen Tank and Wheelchair

    Before I took up the practice of Falun Dafa, I was in a dire situation, afflicted with numerous illnesses. Indeed, there was not a spot on my body that didn't hurt. My lung function was about 30% of that of a normal person and I relied on an oxygen tank to breathe. It was difficult for me to eat and speak as I was extremely weak, and I had to live while relying on an oxygen tank and a wheel chair.
  • Gain from Misfortune: Experience of a Breast Cancer Survivor

    The five exercises were very easy to learn. I found that what was more important was to cultivate one's heart, measuring oneself by the universal characteristic of truthfulness, compassion, and forbearance. We needed to get rid of our attachments to self, jealousy and when conflicts happen, look inward. If we could do that, we would achieve a peaceful mind and good health. Our Teacher specifically taught us not to be involved in politics, and not to treat patients. Through our own cultivation, one will achieve good health.
  • Exposing a CCTV Fabricated News Program

    Prior to the interview, they had called Gao to the factory's workers union office and gave him "ideological education." They told him to cooperate, repeat what they had presented to the TV audience, and assist them to "expose and criticise" Falun Gong. Gao didn't want to lie to the TV audience and refused to do that. Seeing that they couldn't get what they wanted, they locked him up in a small room in the workers union office for a whole day.
  • A Doctor in Taiwan: Falun Gong Cured My Eye Disease

    I study Western medicine and have a certain understanding of the treatment and recuperation process of certain diseases. When I was young, I suffered from various conditions. In the years right before I practiced Falun Gong, I was afflicted with a stomach ulcer, stomach bleeding, a stiff back, inflammation of the eye, dizziness and sciatic nerve pain. These problems took turns attacking me. Treatments could only suppress them temporarily and could not prevent them from recurring.
  • Posters Revealing the Persecution

  • Letter from WOIPFG to All Levels of Chinese Officials Regarding Jiang's Stepping Down: Stop the Persecution and Bring the Murderers to Justice

    In China, the persecution of 100 million innocent Falun Gong practitioners has lasted for more than five years. Now that Jiang has stepped down, this national catastrophe should be immediately stopped. The persecution of Falun Gong has caused the deaths of more than 1000 innocent people from beatings and torture, has utilized vast resources and affected almost all of the people in China. All the murderers who initiated and participated in the persecution should also be punished.
  • Protecting Human Rights Is Not a Word Game

    The media controlled by the former President of China Jiang Zemin has advertised to the entire world that the protection of human rights is written into the Constitution. Inside China, however, the people have not paid much attention to such information. It is because everyone knows that the Jiang regime is used to having its power replace the law. The claim of constitutional protection of human rights is one story while the reality is another.
