    After Hua Haiyu's death, some officials from the Materials and Equipment Company coerced his wife Piao Yufan to write a "guarantee statement"* to give up Dafa practice. Piao Yufan refused, so her work unit didn't allow her son and daughter-in-law to work. Piao Yufan was forced to leave home. As the result of the persecution, her son and daughter-in-law divorced. They had been caretakers for their grandmother, Piao Yufan's mother, who is in her 80's. She is now left uncared for. A family is now broken and destitute.

  • What Exactly Has The Communist Party Brought to China (Part II)

    If it had been just personal resentments or just physical persecution, I would have excused those evil policemen who personally persecuted me, who gave a tacit permission to the persecution, who plotted and instigated the persecution toward me, and their higher-level officials. But it isn’t. It is destroying and trampling on human nature, conscience, and righteous belief. I would rather forget all of it. If they could stop the crimes and make up for the loss, I also would excuse them. But they still continue the crimes.
