  • Stories from China: People Are Gradually Coming to Realise the Truth About Falun Gong

    One said, "The authorities have been arresting Falun Gong practitioners for the past few years. I believe Falun Gong practitioners are good people. My mother-in-law practises Falun Gong. She used to suffer from a lot of illnesses. Now she is in great shape! I even feel better myself when I visit her. I don't believe Falun Gong practitioners commit wrongdoings."
  • It Would be Better to Make up for One's Errors by Performing Good Deeds than by Destroying Incriminating Evidence

    A friend of mine in Yueyang, Hunan Province said, when some local policemen now search Falun Gong practitioners' houses, they no longer look for money, personal belongings and Falun Gong materials like before, instead they only take away evidence of the persecution, such as detention warrants, fine tickets and so on. It is laughable that while they are acting illegally, they are at the same time trying to evade their responsibility for these same illegal actions.
  • Having Greatly Benefited from Practising Falun Gong, Practitioners Uphold Their Belief under Severe Persecution

    In February of 1998, I began practising Falun Dafa. Shortly after I started practising, all of my symptoms disappeared and I no longer needed medication. I have been in good health ever since. In fact, I'm healthier than ever. All of my friends and relatives are very happy for me.
  • Using a Falun Dafa Practitioners' Mentality in Exposing the Communist Party's Persecution of Falun Dafa

    At the same time, to gain support it fulfilled people's desire for material interest. This is in fact just a matter of "sharing a cup of soup," which the Communist Party gained through corruption and seeking private gains, with a small number of Chinese people. Finally, it has been trying its best to maintain its power by instigating the spirit of "nationalism." During its persecution of Falun Dafa, this deceit has poisoned many people's minds and resulted in the deaths of many Falun Dafa practitioners.
  • Some Comments on the "Self-Immolation Incident"

    In fact, when the government decided to crack down on you, I thought you must have some anti-government propaganda or activities. Now that I think about it, if the government has to resort to peaceful means such as sit-in for anti-Party evidence, in addition to fabricating other evidence. They really have nothing else to show.
  • Interviews with Artists Featured in the “Uncompromising Courage” Exhibit: “The People’s Tribunal” by Kathleen Gillis

    I wanted to give the viewers a chance to relate to it and not to think of it as something happening in another country, but rather something happening right here. I remember one time a woman came up to me and she said, “Why don’t you take your problems back to where you came from?” I am Caucasian. She has such a strong impression that this was somebody else’s problem that she didn't even register my ethnic origin. People just want to dismiss it: it is on the other side of the earth and it does not affect them. But it does affect them.
  • People In China Comment on Falun Gong

    One vendor said: "I know them very well. I run into them quite often in this market. They're the nicest people here. I think the restoration of Falun Gong's reputation is only a matter of time. If the government continues the persecution, then the leaders are doomed. A country that cannot distinguish good from bad is doomed. I'll practise Falun Gong too after the restoration of Falun Gong's reputation."
  • Two Policemen Have a Change of Heart about Falun Gong and Experience a Change of Fortune

    In 2002, a policeman in Nanyang City was involved in persecuting Falun Gong practitioners'' family members. He was later diagnosed with cancer, which led him to the brink of death. At that point he awakened, repented of his past behaviour and began practising Falun Gong. His cancer has now started to heal and his health has returned back to normal.
  • Classified Documents Expose the Criminal Tactics of Jiang Zemin and His Gang of Scoundrels

    The Beijing Jail Administrative Bureau and the "Re-education Through Labour" Bureau made their report appear as if it was a "struggle." Initially, the prison and forced labour camp guards were annoyed with Falun Gong practitioners because they do not hit back when beaten and don't talk back when scolded or insulted. This made them helpless since there was nothing they could do. Later, even with physical violence, they failed to make the practitioners succumb to their demands
  • People In China Stand Up Against the Persecution

    This practitioner had left home to avoid being subjected to further persecution and was staying at his relative's home. The police station chief and political leader knew the practitioner's relative's home address, but they discussed this among themselves and decided not to arrest the practitioner. This police chief once told his subordinate, "Some time in the future Falun Gong's reputation will be restored. We have to leave a door open for ourselves!"
  • To Those Who Feel That They Are Not Able to Effectively Help Stop The Persecution Against Falun Gong

    Once someone has taken a step towards opposing the wicked persecution they have helped, and you are able to feel this deep down in your heart. The actions you take truly have a positive impact. So please, even if you are confronted by pictures of torture that are difficult to bear or you feel like crying upon being confronted with death statements... don’t feel powerless, but just go on! Each one of your actions, smiles, signatures, photos you will show to your friends, each Chinese person you inform, each letter sent to the government,... is worth so much!
  • A Man in His Sixties Walked Almost 1,600 Miles to Peacefully Appeal for a Stop to the Persecution Against Falun Gong

    He walked day and night, over hills and mountains. When his shoes were worn out, he would sew them up. His feet were in terrible shape. The toenails on his big toes fell off, and he lost half of each of his little toes. His legs also swelled up. It was very painful and difficult for him to walk. When people were celebrating the Spring Festival, he dragged his heavy legs and moved forward step by step, just to get to Beijing to tell people that Falun Dafa is good and that the persecution is wrong.
  • A Kindhearted Chinese Person's Perception of Falun Dafa

    Today, in a morally degenerating world, the emergence of Falun Dafa is undoubtedly like a beacon for the lost and a rational guide for the confused. Yet, brutal forces led by the Chinese dictator Jiang Zemin and his regime have being conducting an inhuman persecution against compassionate Falun Dafa practitioners by condemning them and turning their appeals into arrests. It is ridiculous and astonishing that conducting oneself according to "Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance" is a crime.
  • Falun Dafa Turns Thief's Life Around

    "...The founder of Falun Gong, Mr Li Hongzhi, has helped me to understand the genuine purpose of human life, and showed me how to be a good person by always considering the welfare of others first, thus curing me completely of my bad habits. This time I was arrested because I have been recounting my experiences to our country's leaders, that Falun Gong is good for our society and the country. When I was a thief, you had just cause in arresting me, but now I can't understand why I am being jailed for having become a good person."
  • Books Slandering Falun Dafa Are Deceiving the Minds of Our Children

    This is a textbook provided to students nationwide, from third graders to middle school students. Statistics show that there are currently about 367 million youths in China. So many children are being compelled to go against "Truth, Compassion, Tolerance." What kind of people are they going to grow into?
