Hiroshima, Japan: “I Believe I Have a Predestined Relationship with You, So I Will Go to the Exercise Site”
Throughout the year Falun Gong practitioners all over the world participate in countless local activities to acquaint people with the benefits of the practice. In Japan last weekend, practitioners talked about the Falun Gong teachings and the exercises to every visitor to their booth. They also offered contact information for local exercise sites and gave out handmade paper lotus flowers as gifts.
Grassroots resistance to the persecution of Falun Gong in China is on the rise. At a tourist site in Switzerland, one man said, “Too bad that the suppression has lasted such a long time. The propaganda in China defames Falun Gong—yet many of us everyday citizens know that Falun Gong is good.” Another said, “Plus, no practitioners fought back even when suffering so much! When I think about this, I feel that Falun Gong is indeed outstanding.”
When Chinese officials involved in the persecution of Falun Gong visit other countries, they are likely to run into large groups of practitioners demanding justice and an end to the persecution. Last week's visit to Taiwan by a former provincial governor was no exception. As one practitioner said, "Every time a Chinese official visits, it is an opportunity for us to remind the public of the persecution.”
When Ms. Yu Daoping's family went to the police station to ask for her release, an officer hinted that they had to pay them first. Because he refused to pay a bribe, Ms. Yu's husband was harassed and threatened and his wife was put on trial.
At Yu Chunxiang's orders, the police in Hubei have arrested over 10,000 practitioners since 1999. The police have fabricated evidence, putting thousands of practitioners in prisons. Many more have been tortured in detention centers, mental hospitals, and brainwashing centers. At least 184 have died.
Most practitioners have, at one time or other, been tortured by being hung up by handcuffs. The metal often cuts into the flesh, causing excruciating pain.
