Recently a rumour has been circulating in hundreds of elementary and secondary schools in Changchun City, Jilin Province. The rumour claims that Falun Gong practitioners will kill 500 children to celebrate Mr. Li Hongzhi's birthday on April 8 (on the Chinese lunar calendar). Many families with children were horrified upon hearing this rumour.
Protecting our children and making sure that they are safe are definitely a high priority. However, parents need to think about what the purpose of this rumour is and be clear on whom they should protect their children from.
Changchun is Mr. Li's birthplace, and it is also where some of the cruellest persecution of practitioners by Jiang's regime is taking place. In this land that is blanketed by terror, [Falun] Dafa practitioners are going through severe tests. They are being thrown into jail and subjected to brutal beatings and forced brainwashing. Some of them have even been tortured to death.
Despite all the torture, Dafa practitioners are still holding firmly to their beliefs. Using the wisdom bestowed upon them by Dafa, practitioners are trying various means to expose the persecution of practitioners by Jiang's regime. On March 5, Changchun practitioners broadcast the truth of the staged "self-immolation" incident on Tiananmen Square, reaching about one million viewers. People were shocked and discussed the broadcast at length. Some condemned the persecution, some admired the practitioners' courage, and some sympathized with the practitioners' plight. Seeing that the public was awakening, the police were quite upset. A furious Jiang soon dispatched special agents to Changchun to plot the next round of persecution of Falun Gong practitioners.
Headed by the "610 Office," the Changchun police force carried out a large-scale roundup of practitioners and arrested over 5,000 people in just 3 days. A new round of bloody persecution thus began in Changchun. In order to escalate the persecution and frame Falun Gong, the local "610 Office," with the help from special agents dispatched from Beijing, fabricated lies claiming that Falun Gong practitioners would kill 500 children.
Any person with a conscience can see clearly what Jiang has done since he came to power. What has he brought to the people? How reliable are his words? Even Jiang's followers know clearly what kind of person he is.
For Chinese people who have gone through the Cultural Revolution and the June 4 massacre of students for democracy in Tiananmen Square, the only thing Jiang's lies can accomplish is to make them see through his true nature and become more and more clear-headed.
As for the "killing children" rumour, people can see that Jiang's regime is now involving innocent children in its campaign against Falun Gong. It is clearly a ploy to push all the parents to go against Falun Gong. They want to use innocent children to instigate hatred towards Falun Gong, so that they can justify their killing of Falun Gong practitioners and at the same time avoid being condemned by the public.
I caution all the parents to pay attention to your children's well being. Please do not let your children become the next victims of the dictator.
Dafa practitioners will as usual use wisdom to safeguard "Truthfulness-Benevolence-Forbearance." We will display the peaceful power of "Truthfulness-Benevolence-Forbearance" with our actions.
