This is an Internet message from a friend in China. He goes by the name "Passerby" and had sent the message to a Falun Gong practitioner after the practitioner explained the facts about Falun Gong to him on the Internet. From his letter, one can see how the Chinese Communist Party's (CCP) lies and slanderous propaganda have poisoned many people's minds. From his letter, we can also see that the Falun Gong practitioners' persistent efforts during the past eight years have helped people to see the truth.
Below is the letter that the author has entitled, "Black July - Feelings that Are Difficult to Describe"
I recently saw some news and articles on the Internet that made me speechless. This information was verified, but the local news reported in China told a different story. At the same time, there were detailed transcripts and evidence. It made me cry to read them.
I remember that it was quite a few years ago when China's regime banned Falun Gong. I was still in school then. My life was busy. My friends like to describe our lives as being very busy with no time for distractions. Initially few people knew that something like "Falun Gong" existed. The name sounded like a qigong practice. Later we heard a lot about Falun Gong from the Chinese Central TV (CCTV) news broadcasts. In a short time, the textbooks used in our political science class had incorporated such content.
I did not feel puzzled, and not many people questioned this type of news. This happened because no one believed that CCTV would lie, and people were thus not concerned about this matter at all. Occasionally after school, when I was about to ride my bicycle home, I would find a Falun Gong flyer placed on the frame of my bicycle. I was not sure who had left it there. I also remember that every class in school had to have a meeting to discuss the Falun Gong issue. Although all these incidents happened a long time ago, the ban on Falun Gong had already been in progress for quite a few years. However, overseas sources made me aware of the real situation, that the cruel persecution of Falun Gong in China had never stopped.
In China, I read news reports saying that someone had cut open his abdomen to look for a Law Wheel. However, I had never seen anyone do this. I did hear news that someone wanted to set himself on fire, so as to rise to heaven. But again, I have never met anyone who did that. But I did not question if such news was real or fabricated, because I did not expect CCTV to make up news.
Many Falun Gong practitioners were subjected to cruel torture after their arrests. We were not aware of this kind of information. There was also the removal of organs from living persons. This was very shocking to me. How could the CCP do such a thing? Are these the acts of human beings? Where is their humanity? Where is their kindness? You people who do these evil acts, don't you feel guilty when performing them? Have you seen movies about ghosts? You know about the phrase, "I will not let you off even if I die," right?
As I write this article, my heart aches. I do not know how long this kind of thing will continue in China. I do know that every person who has a conscience, a kind heart and courage should stand up and say, "That's enough! Stop the cruel persecution!" Those citizens are harmless, defenceless and kind-hearted! You should stop hurting them. Don't you love your country? Don't you love your fellow citizens? If so, then please stop the cruel persecution towards them!
I think what I can do is to appeal to and urge all kindhearted people to pay attention to this issue. Falun Gong practitioners are good and kind, and it is also a good practice. We should support kindness and righteousness, so that we will all have beautiful futures.
July 20 is a special day. I am not a Falun Gong practitioner, but I know that Falun Gong practitioners are a group of kind, sincere, and precious people. Out of a sense of righteousness, I want to remind my fellow citizens about this day.
On that day in 1999, the fate of many Falun Gong practitioners in China drastically changed overnight. Some of them lost their lives speaking up for Falun Gong. A person's life is so precious, and they lost their lives for this. They were not given an option to choose their futures. I want to say this to the Falun Gong practitioners who persevered in spite of being tortured by the Communist regime for their Falun Gong practice, "You are great!" Let us all come and support righteousness and kindness!
