  • My Friend, the Hotdog Vendor

    Before I finished speaking, he said to me loudly, "Peng You, Peng You." After repeating it twice, I realised that he was calling me "friend" in Chinese. I was very surprised and he said, "You can put them wherever you like." Afterwards, he took me around his stand and pointed to all the places where I could post the pamphlets and also said that I could cover all the spaces. I then asked, "Can I really put them anywhere?" The owner replied, "As long as you think this is important."
  • The Jiang Regime's Use of "Psychiatry"

    Over the past five years, Jiang's regime has abused the psychiatric field to persecute Falun Gong practitioners. This has been a two-pronged campaign. First, they falsely attributed heinous crimes committed by mentally ill people in society to Falun Gong practitioners. Second, the authorities labelled mentally healthy practitioners as mental patients so that they can send them to mental hospitals and institutions to persecute them.

  • The Truth Causes the "Great Barrier" to Crumble

    A Native American Chief from Arizona said to Falun Gong practitioners, "I represent many Native American tribal people in the U.S. and am a witness to this most evil persecution in human history. So are the sky, the sun, the moon and the stars. In the divine world, we live on this motherland in harmony and peace. The persecution brings hurt and sorrow to my heart. We wish the Great Spirit to be together with you and your country to end this persecution. Let's step onto the beautiful homeward journey."
  • Five Years of Illegal Persecution Against Falun Gong Undermines China's Morality

    Fortunately, the majority of Falun Gong practitioners have persisted in their belief of Truthfulness-Compassion-Tolerance, including some who went astray under the Jiang regime's violent brainwashing but later returned to practice Falun Gong once again. These practitioners are putting on displaying the power of Truthfulness-Compassion-Tolerance with their words and actions, and they use various methods to clarify the truth to people. Jiang and his followers are faced with total failure.
  • After Five Years of Persecution, People's Attitude Have Changed from Worrying when Falun Gong Would be Defeated to Discussing when the Persecution Will End

    If we only look at a moment in history, often we feel the victim is too weak to oppose the persecutor. However, if we look at the entire history, we find that the victim often defeats the persecutor. The reason is that what determines the outcome of the battle is not the power, but which side gains the world's support. The Roman Empire was once very powerful; however, its persecution of Christians led to its destruction. Now Christianity is in prosperity. Hitler killed Jewish people, but now Nazis are despised everywhere and Jewish people are prospering.
  • My Rheumatoid Arthritis Disappeared after I Began Practicing Falun Gong

    After that, the employers at my company saw that I had a serious disease and sent me to recuperate at the Tanggangzi Clinic in Anshan, Liaoning province. In the third month of recovery, I returned home because of my heart disease. Soon after I arrived, I became paralyzed and could not lead a regular life by myself. My legs were swollen and bruised. If you pressed on the leg, at that point a depression would form. If water was poured into the depression, it would be absorbed.
  • Awaking to the Reality: Interview with a UK Practitioner about the Anti-Torture Exhibition

    The graphic make up and the mock-up torture devices of the anti-torture exhibition outside the Houses or Parliament on July 18th had a profound effect not only on the intended audience of tourists who passed by, but also on the participants. For Zek Halu, a Falun Gong practitioner from London, participating that day continued a process which had begun when he read the story of a Falun Gong practitioner who’s face was destroyed through seven hours of repeated shocks with electric batons
  • Falun Dafa Rebuilds A Moral Foundation and Holds Eternal Hope for Mankind

    After these five years, people are surprised to see that Falun Gong has tenaciously survived the most barbaric, most vicious and most over-powering persecution in the history of human civilisation. Falun Gong practitioners never did anything wrong; not only that - Falun Gong is widely practised in China and in many other parts around the world. This is the only civilian organisation that the CCP hasn't been able to destroy in all of its political movements.
  • The International Community Must Admonish the Jiang Clique's Terrorist Acts

    The hiring of murderers by the Jiang-Zeng clique in South Africa may be related to silencing the international community and exploiting the weaknesses in a country's internal affairs. Those countries that fall prey to the Jiang regime's economic handouts and lies, so as to avoid human rights condemnation, those countries that don't speak out for human rights, are in fact indirectly perpetrating further these evil actions.
  • Righteous Faith, Courage and a Bright Future--Remembering July 20, 1999

    On July 20, 1999, Jiang Zemin launched the persecution of Falun Gong out of personal jealousy and envy. The persecution has lasted five years so far, and Falun Gong practitioners' anti-persecution efforts have also lasted five years. For others, five years may not be a very long time, but for people who constantly suffer as a result of such persecution, five years is a very long time.
  • Thoughts Regarding July 20, 1999: the April 25th Appeal Definitely Cannot Be an Excuse for the Persecution of Falun Gong

    The Constitution maintains that citizens have the right to appeal. The number of people appealing does not change the legitimacy of the appeal. In addition, Falun Gong practitioners went to Beijing to appeal because the matter could not be solved in Tianjin, and the State Council in Beijing is the direct supervisor of the Tianjin government. Therefore, the Falun Gong practitioners' appeal was a not one that skipped levels in between.
  • People Serving Terms in Forced Labour Camps Start Practising Falun Dafa

    Inside China's forced labour camps, people sentenced to forced labour are not allowed to learn Falun Dafa, lest they face heavy punishment. However, quite a number of these people are taking up cultivation practice without any fear after they learn the truth about Falun Dafa.
  • Falun Dafa Rebuilds A Moral Foundation

    July the 20th 1999 was a shameful day for mankind, because on this day Jiang Zemin began persecuting Falun Gong. From that day on, Jiang's villainous group began a thorough, public and cruel persecution of Falun Gong and Falun Gong practitioners. Overnight, 100 million Falun Gong practitioners were deprived of their basic human rights. This persecution has now lasted five years.
