The activities held by Falun Dafa practitioners outside of China to let people learn about Falun Gong and the persecution, directed towards Chinese people via the Internet and phone calls, have greatly reduced the pressure on practitioners in China. I think that most Chinese people are more likely to listen to the facts from foreigners. They often feel indifferent when local practitioners tell them about the former Chinese dictator Jiang Zemin and his collaboration with the Chinese Communist Party to persecute Falun Dafa. However they become very receptive when hearing it from overseas practitioners and therefore act as "live media" in spreading the truth to other Chinese people.
For instance, when I first spoke about Falun Gong to a friend, he rejected what I said. Later, when I told him about the lawsuit against Jiang, he said, "Someone from my work unit said the same thing. He often browses the Internet and gets the news from around the world. I understand Jiang is having a hard time now." He didn't hide his disgust for Jiang at all.
An elementary school student who often browsed the Internet told a practitioner, "Someone talked to me about Falun Gong on the Internet, but I don't quite understand what she said." This opened the door for the practitioner to clarify the truth to her.
I showed a "banned book" to a colleague in my work unit, he was very happy to see it. He said, "I have been looking for that book. A friend on QQ suggested I read it." [Note: QQ is an Internet messenger software program.]
I knew another young man who liked to browse the Internet. I thought he had strong notions and didn't know the truth about Falun Gong. When I mentioned Falun Gong to him, he immediately told me, "Falun Gong is actually pretty good. Many people practise it abroad. They have sent me some articles to read. Jiang suppressed it out of jealousy and has been sued abroad."
I would like to sincerely say "thanks" to overseas practitioners who are taking part in activities to let the people in China know about the persecution and find out what Falun Gong really is.
Here are some of my suggestions, for your reference.
First, when talking about Falun Gong and the persecution to government officials in police departments, procuratorial organs and court systems, it's important to call them or to write to them periodically. Most of them have been systematically brainwashed by the Chinese Communist Party (CCP). They maintain the "struggle philosophy" [concept of continual struggle] that the CCP has ingrained in their heads. Each time we clarify the truth to them, only a part of the poison is eliminated. We have to talk to them many times in order to strengthen their righteous thoughts.
Secondly, when clarifying the truth in a chat room, overseas practitioners can ask Chinese people, "Do you know anyone in your work place who practises Falun Gong?" If so, you can tell them, "You can ask him for more detailed information about Falun Gong." This can also help motivate practitioners who haven't yet stepped out to clarify the truth.
Thirdly, when clarifying the truth to peasants who live in rural areas, we can also call them several times to thoroughly eliminate the poison in their minds, and tell them to memorise these words to bless their families: "Falun Dafa is Good. Zhen-Shan-Ren (Truthfulness, Compassion, and Forbearance) is Good." They usually agree happily, and quickly become enthusiastic promoters (or "live media"). I clarified the truth about Falun Gong and the persecution to a man in his eighties. I told him a lot, but he still told me, "The government does not allow it, so you better not practise it." After I told him that repeating the above two sentences with sincerity would bless him, he accepted it immediately. He not only repeats these sentences himself every day, but also tells others to say them.
