Macao has been under tremendous pressure ever since Jiang's regime initiated the persecution of Falun Gong. The Jiang regime has attempted to eradicate Falun Gong in Macao. To help more people learn the truth about Falun Gong and the facts of the persecution over the past several years, Macao practitioners have continued to explain the facts to the public. Their steady efforts have changed the environment bit by bit.

From Monday to Saturday, practitioners practise in Zhongshan Park, and on Sunday they practise in a park across from China's Liaison Office. On Saturdays and Sundays, police come to monitor practitioners, check ID's, and take photos when unfamiliar practitioners show up. The police's surveillance has taken place for several years, but the practitioners' steadfastness and peacefulness have helped many police officers to understand the truth.

Due to construction in Macao's downtown area, practitioners recently changed tourist sites to clarify the truth. Meanwhile, Macao police had many personnel changes, and the majority of the more than ten plainclothes police in charge of monitoring practitioners from the Information Bureau were transferred. Now, every morning during practise, one or two policemen show up to monitor the practitioners. In the past, when practitioners would talk to the public about the persecution and distribute literature on the streets downtown, all the police who saw the practitioners would follow them, including security guards in front of banks and traffic police. The environment was very austere.
Several policemen who monitored practitioners for several years said to one practitioner, "You distribute literature from January 1 to December 31, rain or shine, even during typhoons, and we have to come out too. When will you stop?" Though they complained, they showed their respect in their tone and expression. The practitioner told him, "Until the innocence and good reputation of Falun Gong and its founder are restored, and we can practise freely. That day will come. Please rest assured!"
A few years ago when practitioners began the distribution of informational materials, the police were anxious. Some would snatch practitioners' materials or forcefully take the practitioners to the police station. But after the practitioners' continuous explanations of the facts, the environment changed. Many police officers know the facts of the persecution, show sympathy and support Falun Gong. Some of them have even started to practise. Here are two examples:
1. One day, a police officer said to a practitioner, "Please give me one more VCD." He said that the VCD he received last time was taken by his colleague for duplication. Because many want the exercise instruction VCD, they have to make a reservation to get a copy. "When can it be my turn? It is faster to get one from you. Thank you," said the police officer. He was pleased when the practitioner gave him one.
2. One day, a police officer asked a practitioner to see if his hand gestures were right and asked for correction. Later he saw there was another officer from a different department standing behind him and changed the topic right away. Then the other officer came forward and said while smiling and pointing at him, "If you want to be a Falun Gong practitioner, you need to be righteous and dignified. 'Falun Dafa is good' has been spread in our department." We all laughed.
