  • Reference Article: My Announcement to Withdraw From the Chinese Communist Party

    Ten years of Cultural Revolution completely destroyed traditional Chinese culture, and the society was turned upside down. The economy was completely paralysed. Although we were still shouting slogans, we knew in our hearts that we were heading toward inevitable destruction. The whole country resembled a desert and a war zone. More than 20 years of life experiences helped me see the true nature of the CCP, and I began to think about the meaning of life.
  • Justice Has No Boundaries: The Positive Significance of the U.S. "Anti-Atrocity Alien Deportation Act" in Keeping Crimes Within Limits

    For a long time, leaders in autocratic governments could abuse their power at will and get away with murder. However, the arm of the law will bring them back into the reach of justice. In recent years, the United States government has promulgated a series of laws that effectively frighten those that carry out persecution of innocent people when these perpetrators come to the United States, they are charged with breaking moral and legal laws as set forth by the civilised world.
  • The Voice of a Family Member of Falun Dafa Practitioners

    My mother started practising Falun Gong in 1996. At first I thought that Falun Gong was just a qigong exercise that helps one to get rid of illness and maintain health. But after my mother studied the books and did the exercises for some time, I found out that Falun Gong is a form of high-level cultivation that teaches one to be compassionate and strive towards being a good person.
  • On Holocaust Day, Don't Let History Repeat Itself

    This is why they stand there in Grönsakstorget in Gothenburg, far away from China. But the distance is reduced, as one stands here outside the Chinese Consulate. Today the number of people present is unusually large because it is the memorial day of the Holocaust that occurred during the Second World War. During such a day there are many people who express words such as “the Holocaust shall never happen again”. Many people talk about this, yet one question remains: who is making sure that such a thing shall never occur again. So far, the practitioners of Falun Gong have not seen anyone take the responsibility. Thus, they have taken action themselves.
  • France: The True Facts Surrounding Falun Gong are Deeply Rooted in People's Hearts

    The Chinese student attending the judiciary examinations answered: “Falun Gong is a kind of spiritual belief. It’s an exercise that benefits both people’s mind and body. Only in China, the Chinese government regards it as cult. Incredibly even in France news reports mention it each time as a cult as well. But according to what I’ve learned from the behaviour of various activities of the people that I know, there is no evidence whatsoever to support the claim that it is a cult or a religion. I don’t understand why that is so.”
  • The Methods Used to Torture and Kill in China's Forced Labour Camps and Prisons

    The reason the labour camps and prisons are so wicked in killing the steadfast practitioners is because they follow the former Chinese dictator Jiang Zemin and his regime's order: "'Transform,' if not, 'cremate' (torture to death)." They aim to eliminate those who practise Falun Dafa. Another reason is because they are afraid that steadfast practitioners can leave the camps alive and expose their vicious crimes. Hence, they want to kill the practitioners in the labour camp, or torture the practitioners until they can no longer survive or speak their thoughts. Then they inform the practitioner's family members and let them die in their homes.
  • Background Information about the First Lawsuit Filed against Jiang Zemin in Beijing

    The truth and the circumstances surrounding the Falun Gong plaintiffs in the first lawsuit brought against Jiang Zemin have been revealed after over four years. As reported by a Falun Gong website on January 3rd, 2005, two Falun Gong practitioners sent out their appeal in August of 2000 to the highest Procuratorate of the People's Republic of China in Beijing to sue Jiang Zemin, Luo Gan, and Zeng Qinghong for illegally banning and suppressing Falun Gong.
  • Hebei Province 6-10 Office Utilises the Yanzhao Evening Post to Compile and Spread Lies

    In order to clarify the facts, Falun Gong practitioners living in Shijiazhuang City called the Yanzhao Evening Post editorial office and asked to speak to Su Shan and Li Ming. The person that answered the phone claimed, "The newspaper office does not have any contact information for these two people." When the practitioners asked whether the article had been investigated and its authenticity verified, the person replied, "These articles are not ours. The provincial 6-10 Office arranged to have a full page for their own publications." The newspaper office staff was polite but powerless.
  • How the Chinese Communist Party Has Been Trampling on the Law in the Case of a Falun Gong Practitioner Who Was Raped by a Policeman at the Beihelin Detention Centre

    After the rape of Wei Xingyan was exposed, people around the world paid enormous attention to this case. The 6-10 Office and Chongqing University sealed off all documents about Wei Xingyan and related information about the case. The 6-10 Office also ordered the university to claim that there was no such student named Wei Xingyan and that there was no such major of High Voltage Direct Current Transmission and Simulation Technology. They even removed information about Wei's department from the university website.
  • The TV Show "The Story of Li Hongzhi" was the First Part of the Three-Step Persecution Process

    Zhao Zhizhen was the head of Wuhan TV Broadcast Station. At that time, the public security department asked the head of Wuhan TV Broadcast Station and reporter Song to make TV programs critical of Falun Gong and to defame Falun Gong's founder Mr. Li Hongzhi. Therefore, making this TV program was based neither on freedom of speech nor on the freedom of the press. It was carried out as part of the plan to persecute Falun Gong and based on the needs of the political persecution.
  • A Police Chief Who Benefited from Falun Dafa Protects Falun Dafa Practitioners

    The police chief nodded in agreement, and borrowed a book containing the core teachings of Falun Gong, Zhuan Falun and another book, The Great Consummation Way of Falun Dafa from the practitioner. One week later, the two met again. This time the police chief had a rosy complexion and was in very good spirits. He told the practitioner happily, "Teacher Li is taking care of me. I just studied the Fa (law or principle, the teachings in Falun Gong) for several days, and the illnesses that had haunted me for years all disappeared. Falun Dafa is so miraculous! It's so good!"
  • A Swiss Falun Gong Practitioner Spends a Week in New York

    During the nine-hour flight from Europe to New York, I had the chance to tell the people sitting on both sides of me about the persecution of Falun Gong. One of them agreed that even from a Christian perspective, every human action provokes a good or bad reaction (retribution) in life and wished me luck and success. He also admired the practitioners who volunteer weeks and months of their time, to explain the truth about the persecution in New York.
  • Reference Material: The Nature of the Chinese Communist Party Determined That It Would Inevitably Defame Falun Gong (Part II)

    Those who are familiar with the Chinese Communist Parties history, from its inception to its taking power, know that the CCP considers itself the master of history. It follows the dictatorship philosophy that "whoever goes along with me prospers, and whoever goes against me perishes." Because of this characteristic, the CCP not only cannot tolerate any opponents who want to replace it, but also cannot tolerate any different kinds of thinking or any independent groups, either outside or inside the CCP.
  • A Policeman in Mainland China Entrusts a Businessman to Relay a Message to Some Falun Gong Practitioners Overseas

    One businessman from China whispered to a Falun Dafa practitioner, “A policeman in my district wanted me to pass on a message to you: Please can Falun Gong practitioners outside China be more careful when contacting practitioners inside China. Last time, one of your practitioners from a city in central Europe entrusted someone to pass on money to a practitioner in our district. When this practitioner got the money the police arrested him, causing unnecessary persecution to a local practitioner. I hope you will take more care in future!”
  • Commentary: To Zhao Zhizhen and Cao Yuan - Please Do Not Use the Name of Science and Truth, (Part 2)

    Why does Zhao Zhizhen try to pose as a protector of science? This is because science has already become the mainstream thought in modern society, and has absolute authority. To pose as a protector of science, 1) there is no risk, 2) he can obtain support from others, and 3) he can claim this accusation is against the whole scientific community, instead of just against him, so that the whole scientific community will share this hatred and fight with him. But the accusation against him is exactly due to his instigation of hatred, which is totally against the spirit of science.
