Lambs to Slaughter

Check out this song regarding the forced organ harvesting of innocent people in China. This is happening in hundreds of hospitals in China, offering less than 2wks waiting time for an organ transplant from the time of inquiry. Lambs to slaughter. Made to order.

Published on Jul 24, 2013

The first single off Belle’s upcoming album, “Speck of Dust”, “Lambs to Slaughter” takes on the confronting human rights issue of forced organ removals from living prisoners of conscience in China with hard-hitting lyrics and a stunning synthesized soundscape over an R&B groove.

“Lambs to Slaughter” is co-written with Sterling Campbell (David Bowie and B-52’s) and features guest emcee, Rise Ascend (f/k/a Ankh Amen Ra). Belle’s uplifting music is rich with folk melodies blended with eclectic sounds over driving beats. Within her deep, sweeping vocals you can hear resonances of Joni Mitchell, Joan Baez and Alanis Morissette. “Belle’s soothing voice brings awareness to one of the biggest atrocities of this century” – The Epoch Times

South Korea: Taking a Stand Against Organ Harvesting Atrocities in China

(Minghui.org) A book release for the Korean version of State Organs: Transplant Abuse in China was held at the Catholic Youth Center in Seoul, South Korea on February 20, 2013. The book documents the results of investigations into organ harvesting atrocities against living Falun Gong practitioners in China. The atrocities occur under the direct authority and control of top officials in the country’s communist regime.

 

Two days later, human rights organizations and experts from various medical and legal fields in Korea held a conference titled “Reality and Future of Organ Transplant” in the Korean National Assembly building.

 

Dr. Jacob Lavee, director of the Department of Cardiac Surgery at Israel’s Sheba Medical Center, spoke at both events and shared about the success of establishing laws that prevent Israeli citizens from obtaining illegal organ transplants in China. Dr. Lavee also explored options for adopting similar measures in Korea.

 

The Korea Joongang DailyDong-A Ilbo (East Asia Daily), and other mainstream Korean media covered the events.

Korean Media Spread the Word About Organ Harvesting Atrocities

State Organs: Transplant Abuse in China details the facts surrounding the Chinese Communist Party’s (CCP) use of live organ harvesting of Falun Gong practitioners and other prisoners of conscience. The book offers a collection of cases provided by 12 experts from the United States, Israel, Australia, and Malaysia, as well as statistics and testimonies from witnesses.

 

The Korean National Association for Ethical Organ Transplants, the organizer of the book release event, was founded at the end of 2012. Its mission is to bring an end to live organ harvesting and illegal organ transplants taking place outside of Korea. The grassroots organization was formed by individuals from the medical, legal, arts, and cultural professions.

 

The association assumed the role of translating State Organs, finishing it in a short time. The Korean translation is the third version of the book, following the English and Chinese versions.

 

At the event, Dr. Lavee, past-president of the Israel Transplantation Society, answered questions from the press. In the book, he stated that many years ago he had a patient who was prepared to receive a heart transplant in China; the patient said that the wait time was only three weeks. The surgery was completed within the promised time frame—Dr. Lavee was shocked. He subsequently began investigating the organ transplant situation in China.

 

Dr. Lavee worked hard in advocating for the passage of Israel’s organ transplant laws in March 2008. He soon found that the organs transplanted in China come from criminals, prisoners of conscience, and even Falun Gong practitioners, who are under severe persecution in China.

 

He pushed for a ban on the international organ trade, restricting overseas live organ transplants, placing restrictions on organs that travel across borders, and halting insurance companies from paying for illegal organ transplants.

 

 

Reporters Ask How Korea Can Help Stop the Atrocities

Reports from mainstream Korean media, such as the Korea Joongang Dailyand Dong-A Ilbo (East Asia Daily), had many questions for the panel at the book release. One reporter inquired about the distribution of labor camps in China and also expressed interest in visiting China to conduct investigative reporting on the issue of organ harvesting in China.

 

Weekly Dong-A, a magazine under the Dong-A Ilbo company, asked Dr. Lavee to provide suggestions for Korea on the issue of organ harvesting. Dr. Lavee said, “The health insurance systems are very different in Israel and Korea. It’s hard for me to give very specific suggestions. However, restrictions on insurance benefits are very effective.

 

“I can understand how patients feel about getting organs from overseas; however, if people know that extending their own lives means killing others, they will not go to China. This is the normal mentality of a human being. It is so in Israel. When people know the truth, going to China to get organ transplants will cease to exist.”

 

According to Dr. Lavee, South Korea is the first East Asian country to seek legislation proposing the abolishment of organ harvesting. He said that Canada is forming its own policy based on Israel’s, which includes prohibiting insurance companies from paying for organ transplants in China.

 

Despite the regulations, Chinese doctors still attempt to work around the laws. After a group of Chinese doctors traveled to Australia to learn more about organ transplant surgery procedures, they were asked to sign guarantee letters that the skills they acquire would not be used for illegal and unethical organ transplants. Chinese doctors soon after stopped traveling to Australia to learn about organ transplantation.

 

“I would like to emphasize that no one wants to die,” Dr. Lavee added. “Therefore, when preventing them from going to China for organ transplants, another door should be open. What’s important is regulations with moral and ethical binding.”

 

Dr. Lavee also mentioned that he was once threatened by the CCP.

 

“I started my efforts in 2005,” he said. “A pro-CCP lawyer called me and threatened that he would sue me in court if I continued my efforts. I told the Ministry of Legal Affairs about this. Later on, whenever I encountered such things, I made them public. Then the threats stopped.”

 

 

Experts Brainstorm How to Help Stop Illicit Transplants 

Many Korean patients go to China to receive organ transplants. According to Professor Chae Sung-Oh from Kookmin University of South Korea, the risks of complications for patients undergoing organ transplants in China are much higher than in other countries because Chinese hospitals usually do not provide the medical information of their donors. This lack of transparency creates various difficulties for patients and their post-surgery treatments.

 

“Usually the patient has to meet the standards determined by the president of Korea in order to be a recipient of an organ transplant,” Professor Chae said. “However, there are no such procedures in China. Once someone pays the fee, he can get the surgery.”

 

Medical insurance companies in Korea still pay for organ transplants in China, and Professor Chae considers such support illegal. If the insurance contract states that the cost will be covered for illegal transplant in China, then the contract itself is in violation of the law.

 

Professor Chae suggests that Korea reference Israel’s laws regarding organ transplants. Discussions around organ harvesting and the establishment of organ transplant laws are rapidly becoming a global focal point. Korea now has an opportunity to step forward and continue the push for humane and ethical legislation.

 

Jung Goo-Jin, permanent representative of the Pan-National Alliance for Judicial Reform, a civil organization in Korea, agreed with Dr. Lavee’s suggestion. He thinks that the Korean National Assembly should establish a law to address the issue head on. “I would like to meet with the congressmen and help make this happen,” Jung said.

Vice President of the European Parliament Meets Rescued Falun Gong Practitioners in US Capital (Photo)

(Minghui.org) When Vice President of the European Parliament Edward McMillan-Scott attended a hearing on human rights in China in Washington, DC, on March 4, 2013, he met with Falun Gong practitioners Ms. Zhang Lianying and her family. Very active over the past few years in the effort to rescue this family, he was excited to see them in DC and made the comment that the persecution in China “would not last much longer.”

Mr. McMillan-Scott Helped to Rescue Them from China

Mr. McMillan-Scott first heard about Ms. Zhang when he met her husband, Mr. Niu Jinping, and another practitioner, Mr. Cao Dong, seven years ago in Beijing. After learning of the horrific persecution of Falun Gong in China, he began to dedicate himself to rescuing Ms. Zhang. In 2011, Ms. Zhang and Mr. Niu were finally able to flee to the U.S. The Beijing police arrested Mr. Cao for the sixth time on June 8, 2012, and sentenced him to two and half years of forced labor.

Ms. Zhang was an official with the Guangda Group Ltd and a chartered CPA. She made a good living and was afforded all the privileges of a modern, professional Chinese. In 1997 she and her husband started to practice Falun Gong. They gained good health and a deep sense of inner peace. When the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) launched a full-scale persecution of Falun Gong in 1999, everything changed.

On May 21, 2006, Mr. Niu had the opportunity to meet with Mr. McMillan-Scott, who was visiting China. He told how his wife, Ms. Zhang, had been tortured. Mr. McMillan-Scott made the details of Ms. Zhang’s situation known to the world, and Mr. Niu was put under surveillance.

Ms. Zhang was released from Beijing Women’s Forced Labor Camp on December 13, 2007, and wrote a letter to Mr. McMillan-Scott and the Human Rights Commission of the European Parliament. In her long letter, she listed over 50 methods of torture used on her. Mr. McMillan-Scott put it on the Parliament website, which is available to the international community.

Exposing the CCP’s Relentless Persecution

Ms. Zhang and her husband were sentenced to two and half years of forced labor on May 13, 2008, because of the approaching Beijing Olympics. Mr. Niu was taken to Tuanhe Force Labor Camp in Beijing. He was beaten until his teeth loosened. In July, Ms. Zhang was secretly transferred from Beijing Women’s Forced Labor Camp to Masanjia Forced Labor Camp in Shenyang City, Liaoning Province.

Ms. Zhang protested with a hunger strike. A female guard pried her mouth open with a spoon and handcuffed her. The guard many times hung her up in the air by attaching the handcuff to a high metal bar high.

Once she was hung up for three days straight and had to crawl out of the room because her arms and legs were injured and numb from the torture.

She was also shocked with electric batons, forced to stand for long periods of time, and struck with wooden bats numerous times.

Ms. Zhang refused to follow the prison rules, sign her “evaluation,” or wear a name tag. She also refused to eat. As a result, she was severely beaten. Her hands no longer functioned normally as a result. In 2009, she was transferred to a special section for worse torture.

Mr. McMillan-Scott learned about her situation and again told the world how she was suffering.

Tortured Almost to Death

Ms. Zhang said that when she was arrested and taken to a forced labor camp, her child was a year and a half. The camp played the sound of a child crying around the clock at high volume. She was locked in a narrow, solitary cell. “If I did not practice Falun Gong, I would have lost my mind,” she said.

Ms. Zhang recalled that, in the camp, she was repeatedly deprived of air until she passed out. She said she was not afraid of death; the constant struggle for life was worse than that. Instigated by the guards, the prisoners held her down and covered her mouth and nose with a damp cloth many times. They only removed it when she was suffocating.

When she gasped for breath, they immediately covered her mouth and nose again. This was repeated over and over until she lost control of her bowels. Many of the practitioners who are in the camp now are still being tortured this way.

Mr. McMillan-Scott asked Ms. Zhang about her health. He told her about how, when her husband told him about the torture she endured, he was in shock. McMillan-Scott visited over 40 countries, and, wherever he went, he mentioned their names.

He also said that, to this day, he still worries that his effort to expose the persecution of Ms. Zhang was what caused them to suffer worse torture in China. He also worries that his attention to Mr. Cao Dong’s case will cause him to be more relentlessly persecuted.

The Beijing police arrested Mr. Cao for the sixth time on June 8, 2012. Mr. Cao graduated from Beijing Foreign Studies University and met Mr. McMillan-Scott six years ago. He told McMillan-Scott about the persecution that he, his wife, and many Falun Gong practitioners were enduring. Two hours later, Domestic Security officers arrested Mr. Cao and put him in prison for five years. His wife, Ms. Yang Xiaojing, died on October 1, 2009, as a result of long term imprisonment, harassment, and being destitute during the persecution.

Ms. Zhang told the Vice President of the European Parliament, “If it wasn’t for your help, my family would not be here today. When I was in the forced labor camps in Beijing and Masanjia, I was many times forced to have blood tests and health exams. Without your rescue effort, perhaps my organs would have been removed by now.”

Mr. McMillan-Scott said that he believed the CCP’s persecution of Falun Gong wouldn’t last much longer.

 

Australia: Thousands of Chinese Visitors Choose Bright Futures for Themselves in front of the Sydney Opera House

February 22, 2013 | Reported by Huaqing from Sydney

(Minghui.org) Falun Dafa practitioners in Sydney have had an informational stand in front of the Sydney Opera House since the beginning of 2013 to bring an important message to tourists from Mainland China: Ensure yourself a bright future by quitting the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) and its affiliated organizations.

The 14-year-long persecution of Falun Gong has been covered up in China, and the country is blanketed in false propaganda demonizing the peaceful spiritual practice. Practitioners encourage Chinese people to quit the CCP as a way of supporting Falun Gong, believing that doing so will help bring these people a brighter future when the truth is ultimately revealed and those responsible for the persecution are brought to justice.

Volunteers at this stand have helped approximately ten thousand Chinese tourists quit the CCP and its affiliated organizations since the stand was set up at the beginning of January. Many of the tourists are family groups and some are teachers traveling with their students.

Service Center for Quitting the CCP located in front of the Sydney Opera House.

Mr. Bai, a volunteer at the Service Center for Quitting the CCP, said that there have been many Chinese tourists stopping by for information. Many of them, after reading posters with photos and facts of the persecution of Falun Dafa in China, have readily quit the CCP and its affiliated organizations. Many have taken fliers and DVDs, and a number of tourists simply walk over to the stand just to say, “You have been working so hard. Thank you.”

 

A teacher from China told the volunteers that she had quit the CCP and its affiliated organizations on the Internet. She pointed at her students who were reading the posters, and told them, “Go ahead and read some more! You’ve got time!” There was a mother who was accompanying her son and daughter. After she read the posters, she went over to the stand and quit the CCP organizations. She helped her son quit the Communist Youth League and her daughter quit the Young Pioneers. She was very grateful to the volunteers.

 

Mr. Bai said that there was a man from Guangdong Province who did not know anything about the Chinese regime’s harvesting organs of Falun Gong practitioners for profit. “He asked many questions and before he left, he took a lot of informational materials with him, wanting to learn more about it,” Mr. Bai said.

 

Ms. Yue, in her seventies, has been a volunteer at the Service Center for a long time. She has helped about 1,000 Chinese people quit the CCP and its affiliated organizations. Ms. Yue was very impressed with a couple who were lecturers at a university who visited Sydney with their child. She told them that the CCP was the real cult and explained the history of Marxism. After they understood the truth of Falun Dafa and the evilness of the CCP, one of them said, “After I return to China, I will never teach anything about Marxism. I’ll only teach the five thousand years of divinely-inspired Chinese culture such as the doctrines of Confucius and Mencius.” They thanked Ms. Yue and took a large number of fliers and DVDs with them before they left.

 

The Service Center for Quitting the CCP has become a welcome addition to Chinese tourists’ list of important destinations when they visit Sydney.

The One Thing I Would Like Western Governments to Do

Stop the Chinese Communist Party from killing people for their organs

By Jennifer Zeng

Jennifer Zeng is pictured at the award ceremony for the Free Speech Film Festival, on May 12 in Philadelphia. The movie “Free China,” in which Ms. Zeng’s story of suffering persecution in China for her belief in Falun Gong is featured, took top honors at the festival. (Edward Dai/The Epoch Times)

On Nov. 1, I travelled to Canada for the first time to attend the Free Thinking Film Festival in Ottawa, as the subject of an award-winning documentary, Free China: The Courage to Believe. This film examines widespread human rights violations inside China—from forced abortions to live organ harvesting of prisoners of conscience—through the stories and experiences of Dr. Charles Lee, an American-Chinese businessman, and myself, a mother, author, and former Communist Party member.

Both Charles and I, along with hundreds of thousands of peaceful citizens in China, have been incarcerated, tortured, and subjected to slave labor for our spiritual beliefs—we both practice Falun Gong.

After the screening, I observed that the audience was quite moved by our experiences. Many were also shocked by the extent of the physical and psychological torture that Charles and I had to endure and at learning that Falun Gong practitioners have been killed for the harvesting of their vital organs. One audience member angrily asked, “What has the UN done in all these years?”

Another audience member, MP Bryan Hayes of the Conservative Party, asked, “What is the one thing you’d like the Canadian government to do?”

Mr. David Kilgour, a 27 year Canadian Parliamentary Member; and co-author of Bloody Harvest, The Killing of Falun Gong for their Organs, which provides a comprehensive analysis based on intensive investigation into the live organ harvesting of Falun Gong practitioners in China, answered by saying, “Well, we actually have 25 things that we’d like the Canadian Government to do. The Foreign Ministry can at least post a warning on its website to inform Canadians that if you go to China for an organ transplant, there is a high chance that someone like Jennifer could be killed so that you can utilize her organs. Would you then still want to go to China?”

For me, I would like the Canadian Government, as well as other governments around the world to demand the Chinese Communist Party stop persecuting Falun Gong practitioners immediately. This includes:

1. Stop killing Falun Gong practitioners for their organs;
2. Release all imprisoned Falun Gong practitioners;
3. Lift the ban on Falun Gong and allow publication and distribution of Falun Gong books in China.

The question here is how far is the Canadian government, and how far are other governments, prepared to go to make this happen? What has the world done to stop the Chinese Communist Party from killing thousands or tens of thousands of Falun Gong practitioners for their organs? What level of heinous crimes has to occur before governments are willing to do anything?

There have been so many times when Falun Gong practitioners have attempted to raise awareness of live organ harvesting when people would ask, “Where is the evidence?” Whenever I hear this response, my heart becomes heavy.

Falun Gong practitioners are a group of peaceful and law-abiding citizens who hold no state power at all in their hands. When Anne, wife of a Chinese doctor, first informed the public back in 2006 that her husband alone had removed corneas from the living bodies of more than 2,000 Falun Gong practitioners; and that thousands of Falun Gong practitioners were still jailed in an underground facility and could be killed at any time, I felt like l was hearing the most terrible news about my missing family members.

For me, the logic is very clear. If the allegations are there, if respectable individuals like David Kilgour and his co-author David Matas have already used their own resources and undertaken investigations to prove that this IS happening, if knowledgeable transplant doctors like Dr. Jacob Lavee cried out that this IS happening based on their professional judgment, if 106 US Congress members have written to the U.S. Government to demand the release of organ-harvesting related information that the U.S. Government might have, isn’t it the obligation of the United Nations or any other government that really respects human life to take action?

Why is it so difficult to undertake further investigations, or to publish a warning or condemnation? Do we have preferences or selections when attempting to uphold justice? If there is a differentiation or selection about what kind of “justice” we are prepared to uphold, can we still call it justice?

Sure, we are doing business with the Chinese Communist Party; and the party still controls the largest military force in the world. However, with the attempted defection of Wang Lijun, former police chief of Chongqing city, with the sentencing of Gu Kailai and the ouster of Bo Xilai, more and more evidence of the real crimes behind these men’s actions, which are attributed to the live organ harvesting of Falun Gong practitioners, is emerging.

A crime of such a scale cannot be hidden forever, and the Chinese Communist Party is not as strong as we imagine. I believe that as soon as the crime of organ harvesting becomes known to the majority of Chinese people, the party will collapse.

What we may need to do now is only to put the last straw on the camel’s back. Otherwise, when our children or grandchildren ask us, “why didn’t you do anything to stop this crime?” what can we say?

Jennifer Zeng is the author of “Witnessing History: One Chinese Woman’s Fight for Freedom and Falun Gong.” Before being persecuted in China for her faith, she was a researcher and consultant in the Development Research Center of the State Council, the State Cabinet. Her story is featured in the award-winning documentary, “Free China; the Courage to Believe,” co-produced by New Tang Dynasty Television and World2Be Productions.

 Editor’s Note: When Chongqing’s former top cop, Wang Lijun, fled for his life to the U.S. Consulate in Chengdu on Feb. 6, he set in motion a political storm that has not subsided. The battle behind the scenes turns on what stance officials take toward the persecution of Falun Gong. The faction with bloody hands—the officials former CCP head Jiang Zemin promoted in order to carry out the persecution—is seeking to avoid accountability for their crimes and to continue the campaign. Other officials are refusing any longer to participate in the persecution. Events present a clear choice to the officials and citizens of China, as well as people around the world: either support or oppose the persecution of Falun Gong. History will record the choice each person makes.

What Does It Mean When CCP Officials Claim that a Torture Victim “Deserves It”?

November 16, 2012 | By Yino

(Minghui.org) In 2004, Falun Gong practitioner Mr. Cao Yuqiang from Pulandian, Liaoning Province, died due to being beaten by police officers. After the Minghui website reported this news, a Falun Gong practitioner from overseas called the Public Security Bureau in Pulandian in order to verify the death. The person, who picked up the phone said, “He deserved it.”

It’s unimaginable that a person casually makes such a comment after a man was killed. Everyone, especially the police, should know that Falun Gong practitioners never physically fight back or use abusive language. How can police officers be so cold and not feel any guilt? How can a police officer feel that his action is justified and be fearless after killing a person?

Unfortunately, this is not an isolated case when we read through reports on Minghui. The statement that Falun Gong practitioners who died from being tortured, “deserved it” is like a widespread plague among the Chinese police. The following are statements from officials in this regard.

Xin Hechong, deputy chief of the Public Security Bureau in Shulan, Jilin, told Ms. Song Bing, who was tortured to death, “Should you die from the beatings, you deserve it! Even that won’t make me hate you less!”

Xi Min, a guard in the Longping Brainwashing center in Suining, Sichuan, cursed at practitioners who went on a hunger strike in order to protest their illegal imprisonment. He said, “I told you not to practice, but you still did it. You deserve it should you die from hunger. The crematorium is very close, I will drag you there once you have died.”

Li Jing, a guard in the Hewan Forced Labor Camp in Wuhan ordered the force-feeding of practitioners with chili powder. He said, “They deserve it if they cannot take it. It does not matter if they die while being tortured.”

Zhanqiu, Shandong, deputy director of the Jiaxiang Police Station in Mingshui County said to a practitioner, “You deserve to die. There will be one less Falun Gong practitioner if you die.”

A guard in the Jingkou Brainwashing center in Shapingba District, Chongqing, commented on Ms. Xu Yunfeng, who later died from being tortured, “If she dies during force feeding, she deserves it. It’s her fault because she won’t give up the practice. There are plenty of people in China…”

The Chinese police uses this phrase “they deserve it” as their justification when they have tortured and killed Falun Gong practitioners. Besides being unscrupulous, the words “deserve it” send a clear message that these officers hate practitioners. They hated practitioners so much that they did not rest until they killed them. Practitioners were tortured and even killed because they were hated. But practitioners are merely a group of good people, who follow the principles of “Truthfulness, Compassion, Forbearance” in their lives. Why would anyone hate these good people? This hatred comes from the Chinese regime’s slanderous propaganda, which framed Falun Gong practitioners for things they did not do and incited hatred against them among the Chinese people.

In the beginning of the persecution, the Chinese regime mobilized all state media to twist the facts and vilify Falun Gong practitioners. The media made up “1400 cases” of practitioners who supposedly had died because of the practice, committed suicide, slaughtered others, or became psychotic. The Chinese regime did everything in its power to demonize practitioners and incite public hatred against them. A documentary made by Wuhan TV which defamed Falun Gong and its founder was used by Jiang Zemin to coerce other core leaders in the Politburo to agree with his decision to persecute Falun Gong. It was also used as the basis for brainwashing and torturing practitioners in prisons. Many police officers had negative feelings toward Falun Gong after watching this video. When Jiang realized that most Falun Gong practitioners did not give up their belief under coercion, he intensified the persecution. He wanted to “eliminate Falun Gong practitioners physically.” He staged the “Tiananmen self immolation” incident and phony news such as “Falun Gong practitioners go insane and kill innocent people” in order to frame practitioners.

A reporter interviewed the then UN chief representative Sha Zukang and asked him why Falun Gong practitioners were locked into mental hospitals and injected with nerve damaging drugs. Sha responded without hesitation, “They deserve it.” Bo Xilai, then the governor of Liaoning Province, blatantly ordered the chief of the Dalian Public Security Bureau, “Look at these Falun Gong practitioners, they are so united and efficient. We’ll be in trouble if they are not arrested and punished. Just beat them up and if they die, they deserved it. The government will be responsible.” This logic of practitioners “deserving it” did not just come from hate propaganda, but also from the Chinese leaders’ “leading by example.”

This irrational logic did not start with the persecution of Falun Gong; it has a deeper root within the Chinese Communist Party (CCP). It came from Mao Zedong, the man who brought numerous disasters to the Chinese nation. Mao once said, “Even when we beat people, we need to conduct a class analysis. When a good man beats a bad man, the bad man deserves it. When a bad man beats a good man, the good man should be proud. When a good man beats a good man, there is a misunderstanding.” Mao’s “deserve it” logic was widely adopted by the Red Guards, thus violence and blood quickly covered China. Jiang not only inherited this irrational logic, but augmented it. He added the most evil note to it, “to eliminate them physically” and “to count it as suicide if they are killed during beatings.”

An ordinary man has reason and emotions. When he calms down, he is able to regret the wrong things he did. The “deserve it” logic anesthetizes the perpetrators’ conscience. Both Mao and Jiang successfully used it to launch large scale movements that dragged the Chinese people into deep disasters.

This logic of the CCP allows it to get away without conscience, morality, and allows it to abuse the law. It is the logic of hooligans. It clearly explains how every piece of CCP propaganda is to cover up its violence and to pave the road for eliminating any opposition.

Forty Eight Airline Passengers Quit the CCP Inflight

November 13, 2012 | By a practitioner in China

(Minghui.org) I’ve been an invalid for most of my life. I could hardly move and even needed help to turn over in bed. On October 19, 2009, after practicing Falun Dafa for just seven days, I was able to walk again. I even joined in with other practitioners in clarifying the truth. When people saw the massive changes in my health and attitude, they were truly shocked. They knew that Falun Dafa was good.

Master had rescued me from a life of misery, purified my body, removed my illnesses, and cleaned up my family environment. I am a walking testament to the power of Falun Dafa, so I use every opportunity to clarify the facts. Each time I visit a village to hand out truth clarifying materials, I feel that I am helping Master save hundreds of sentient beings. I know that Master is always by my side arranging everything for me.

I flew to Nanning City in southern China last September. Before the plane took off, I asked Master to strengthen my will. I then sent righteous thoughts to clear out any evil elements in other dimensions. After reciting the Fa for a while, I silently repeated, “Falun Dafa is good. Truthfulness-Benevolence-Forbearance is good.” The environment around me became calm and peaceful.

A minute later, I started to get anxious, “How am I going to clarify the facts about Dafa in this confined setting? How am I going to encourage others to withdraw from the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) and its affiliated organizations?” I then realized that I had nothing to worry about, as I was doing the most righteous thing in the cosmos. I thought to myself, “Everyone on this plane has been waiting for thousands of years to hear the truth. If I don’t tell them now, they could lose the opportunity forever.”

Just then, several flight attendants walked briskly down the aisle telling the passengers that the plane had hit some turbulence and that everyone needed to put on the life jackets stored under their seats. Dark clouds filled the sky and a feeling of imminent danger filled the cabin.

I thought to myself, “This is a perfect opportunity to save everyone on this plane!” I asked Master to help me remove all of the evil elements of the CCP around me. At the same time, I asked the multitude of righteous gods to awaken all of the passengers so they would have righteous thoughts towards Dafa. I truly believed that Master would help me.

I stood up and confidently said, “Hello, everyone! It is a predestined relationship that has brought us all together. Faced with such a crisis, I am going to pass out pieces of paper with two important sentences written on them, sentences that can save our lives. Do you want to know what the sentences are?” Most passengers simply said, “Yes, hurry up! Please!” Then I said, “Please read aloud in unison, ‘Falun Dafa is good. Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good.’”

At that moment, the stewardesses and security personnel ran towards us, shouting, “Everyone be quiet!” and “You should not say such things!” Just as I was asking Master to strengthen my power to help these passengers discern good from evil, assimilate into the Fa, and withdraw from the CCP, a miracle happened.

Out of nowhere, pillars of light illuminated the front of the plane, then the whole sky. Everyone was stunned! The security officer on board said that he had never encountered anything like it in over ten years on the job.

I then said to everyone, “It was the mighty, heavenly Great Law that helped us avert disaster. However, the CCP has forced us not to believe in Buddhas, gods, and Daos, and it has even gone so far as to persecute Falun Dafa practitioners. Mark my words, heaven will soon eradicate the CCP. If you made an oath to sacrifice your life for the CCP, then one day you will be buried along with it. However, if you want a bright future and if you want to save yourself, then please follow my suggestion and withdraw from the CCP and its affiliated organizations!”

Of the 66 passengers on board the plane, 48 agreed to withdraw from the CCP. Those who did not quit explained that they had never joined any CCP organizations, however they promised to remember the two sentences that I taught them, and agreed to support Falun Dafa.

We later sang Falun Dafa songs together. The singing was so loud and clear! I marveled at how quickly these sentient beings woke up. Thank you, Master! Thank you, Buddhas, gods, and Daos. Thank you for saving us!
