  • People Comment on Falun Dafa in New York

    Two college students arrived to view the Falun Gong display board on a rainy day. Practitioners came over and told them the facts about Falun Gong. One student replied, "We learnt this in our ethics class. The teacher assigned Falun Gong as a discussion topic, handed out information about Falun Dafa to each student, and had us discuss this. All of us know about Falun Gong."
  • A Judge In China Starts to Practise Falun Dafa

    The next time we met, the judge graciously thanked me. He told me that when the suppression of Falun Gong started on July 20th, 1999, he had participated in it. When Falun Gong books were confiscated, he kept a copy for himself out of curiosity. After reading it over, he didn't think there wa's anything wrong with the book. Still, under the unprecedented pressure of Jiang's regime, and without an environment for cultivation, he never learnt how to do Falun Gong exercises. He knew that one of his neighbours practised Falun Gong but because of his occupation, however, the neighbour did not dare to contact him.
  • Comments on an Absurd CCP Statement - How Much Food Does There Need to Be Before Freedom of Speech Can Be Allowed?

    Facing human rights denouncements from the international community, the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) has worked out an absurd statement about "Chinese characteristics," claiming that "the right to survive supersedes all human rights." The CCP often uses this as an excuse to reject criticism of the human rights situation in China
  • Where Does the Money for Falun Gong Activities Come From?

    Some people think that one source is behind-the-scenes financial backing from a political party. In actuality, there has never been any evidence put forward to support this theory. In many cases, theories like this one are a direct or indirect result of the influence of the Chinese Dictator Jiang Zemin and his cliques using propaganda as a way of accusing Falun Gong of having "political motives" and getting support from "overseas anti-China forces."
  • Parents Who Have Lost Children Because of the Persecution are Living Witnesses to the Party's Lie, "This is the Best Period of Human Rights in China's History"

    Countless Chinese parents have suffered this indescribable heartache as a result of the Chinese Dictator Jiang Zemin and his faction's persecution of Falun Gong. The persecution of Truth-Compassion-Tolerance was carried out and is still going on in 31 provinces, autonomous regions and municipalities in China. According to a report dated at December 10th, 2004, in the past five years at least 1,157 Falun Gong practitioners have died from torture. Their average age is 46 and many of them left behind young children and elderly parents. This persecution has and still is inflicting a tremendous disaster upon the people of China.
  • Comment on the "Three Stops" Policy Recently Implemented by China's Ministry of Justice

    During the persecution of Falun Gong, China's Ministry of Justice has being Jiang Zemin's accomplice, but recently, it has called on prisons to put an end to all maltreatment of inmates. This directive may have been issued because of the power struggle that has arisen. With Jiang now out of office and the voices of condemnation inside and outside of China becoming louder and louder, there was a need to establish another smokescreen to hide the truth.
  • An Open Letter to Those Wishing to Know the True Facts Regarding the Persecution of Falun Gong in China

    On the day the reporters were to arrive, camp officials transferred steadfast Falun Gong practitioners and people without specific tasks, to a remote section of the west building until the reporters had finished their inspections. Many people wanted to tell the reporters what the real situation was, but they were blatantly denied the right to do so.
  • Jiang Zemin’s Henchmen Escalate Their Thuggish Acts with the Progression of the Lawsuit against Jiang Zemin in Australia

    In her letter to the police on the following day, Ms. Zhang wrote, “I was shocked and horrified by the scene and could not held back my tears and even today, my front yard is still covered by the blood.” She added, “As the Chinese Government has been attempting to prevent Falun Gong practitioners from filing lawsuits through a variety of indecent ways in different countries, I have no doubt that the incidents are not isolated and they must be related to my case..."
  • A Collection of Stories about People Being Rewarded with Blessings Via Falun Dafa

    On the afternoon of the 24th of June, 2004, there was a hail storm in some villages and small towns in Guangzhou County, Hebei Province; and it lasted over ten minutes with the largest hailstones the size of a fist. Xiaobaishi Village, Guangzhou County suffered serious damage from the hail storm; and, many branches, leaves and cotton crops were crushed by the hailstones. However, there was an exception: Falun Dafa practitioner Yan Peixian's cotton field suffered from very little damage. Other than some leaves that were crushed, the cotton crop was intact with no damage at all.
  • The Collusion of Jiang Zemin with the Chinese Communist Party to Persecute Falun Gong

    Jiang Zemin lacks both ability and moral integrity. Without a finely tuned, killing-and-lie-driven-machine like the CCP, he would never have been capable of launching this genocide, a genocide that is widespread throughout China and that even penetrates overseas. Similarly, under the international atmosphere of its current open policy and endeavours to connect to the world, the CCP would not have easily gone counter-current if there was not a self-willed dictator like Jiang Zemin who was determined to have his way.
  • Words from the Hearts of Citizens in Daqing City

    A CEO of a company said to a Falun Gong practitioner, "I saw many Falun Gong practitioners when I was in Japan, Russia, Hong Kong and other areas. What they did was merely inform people of the true situation regarding Falun Gong and the persecution. They are exactly the same as how you described. You are very good -- you are indeed great! I really can't understand why Jiang Zemin insists on persecuting you. From now on, you just work in our company and no one is allowed to bully you..."
  • Open Letter from Australian Falun Dafa Practitioner, a Scientist from China, Liu Jinghang to Singapore's Premier, Li Xianlong

    I was very shocked when I heard that the police in Singapore arrested two Falun Dafa practitioners on charges of unlawful assembly and distributing informational materials about the brutal persecution in China without a license. I understand that the practitioners have been brought to trial and face large fines and even up to a year in jail if they are convicted. As a Falun Dafa practitioner from China who has suffered greatly in the persecution, I am particularly concerned about this miscarriage of justice.
  • Falun Dafa Practitioners' Family Member Takes the Initiative to Reason with Community Officials

    My father continued, "Nowadays, corruption has become so rampant. On July 4th, 1989, guns and tanks were used in the crackdown on the students simply because they expressed their opposition to corruption. Falun Gong practitioners had done nothing more than practise the exercises and strive to be good people. They were arrested only because they said that they practised. If Falun Gong is so bad, then why has it been welcomed in more than sixty countries? What does this tell us?"
  • Information about Brainwashing "Textbook" Published by Jiang's Group: Providing Evidence and Calling for International Criminal Investigation

    In many places in China, persecutors forced many Falun Dafa practitioners to attend the brainwashing classes where they illegally detained practitioners and tortured them mentally. The brainwashing sessions use a notorious "textbook" which is filled with words that slander Falun Dafa and instigate hatred towards practitioners. This so called "textbook" also exposes a lot of evidence of the crimes that Jiang and his group have committed.
