[Celebrating World Falun Dafa Day] How I Got 108 Police Officers to Quit the Chinese Communist Party
(Minghui.org) I am in my 70s. Every day I go out to tell people why the persecution of Falun Dafa is wrong and help them quit the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) and its affiliated organizations.
I want to share a story of how 108 police officers announced their withdrawal from the CCP using their real names. It all started with my younger brother.
My brother is a Party committee secretary at a university out of town. For years and years he never doubted anything the CCP said. He was utterly against my practicing Falun Dafa after the persecution started in 1999. He didn't want to hear what I had to say and would not stop by and visit me when he was in town. He was always rude when we spoke on the phone.
One day he brought several people to town and wanted me to join them for dinner. He told me outright, “I am here to brainwash you [into giving up Falun Dafa]. Get ready.”
I have been clarifying the truth to people of all ages and from all walks of life for many years. No matter how deep their misunderstandings about Falun Dafa or how hostile they were towards me, I have been able to convince them otherwise with the wisdom Dafa has given me. I have helped almost 20,000 people quit the CCP over the last ten years. Except for my brother, everyone in my family eventually became a practitioner after I talked to him or her.
I asked Teacher to help me and took a lot of informational materials to the dinner at a hotel restaurant. I knew most of the people there: university professors, my brother’s in-laws and friends, and a couple of bank executives.
I said to my brother, “How great that we can get together tonight. Why didn't you bring them over to my house?” I was stunned when he replied, “Why would I? You [Falun Gong practitioners] kill people.”
When I calmed down and told him that I would never do such a thing, he started screaming at me until a professor stopped him: “How can you talk to your older sister that way?” “She's not my sister,” he replied, “she’s my enemy.”
“I follow Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance and do not have enemies. Those who follow these principles are good people and those who don’t are bad,” I pointed at my brother with a smile on my face and continued, “A mean person like him deviates from those principles, so he is our enemy.” Everyone started laughing.
The atmosphere warmed up, and everyone started talking about Falun Dafa. One of them said to me, “I used to work with three practitioners. They were incarcerated for a very long time and their books were burned.” I told him that that was horrible because the book teaches everyone how to be good and how to stay healthy.
A bank executive stood up and said, “I have read that book (Zhuan Falun) and it is a wonderful book. The Master of Falun Dafa is amazing. He has so many followers around the world, many of whom are experts, scholars, professors, scientists, and important government officials. Jiang Zemin is nothing compared to him and that made Jiang jealous. The only things Jiang knows are corruption and womanizing.”
As people started to criticize Jiang's wrongdoings, I gave out the printed material that I’d brought. I wanted to save everyone there, including my brother. I handed him a flier on the staged Tiananmen self-immolation. I explained the discrepancies in the video and pointed out the places that didn't make sense.
“Whoever believes in this obviously false news must be out of his mind,” I said as I looked at my brother, “And YOU want to brainwash me? You should clean your brain first.” A person who was listening next to him told him, “Your sister is great. I wish I had one like that.” My brother remained silent.
As we were eating, a professor said, “Persecuting Falun Gong is the stupidest thing Jiang could ever do. I know a lot of Falun Gong practitioners and they are all good people. My neighbor is one and he never took advantage of anyone.”
After the meal, my brother walked me to the bus stop. I waved goodbye when the bus arrived, thinking that he would go back to the hotel. He told me that he was going home with me, which surprised me.
The next morning I was listening to Teacher’s lectures when he came in the room and said, “Hey, Sis.” This came as another surprise, because he hadn't addressed me that way for years.
He told me that he’d stayed up the night before and finished reading the Nine Commentaries on the Communist Party and that it was a good book. He quit the CCP with his real name and borrowed the audio files of the Falun Dafa lectures.
Police Chief Abolishes Brainwashing Center
My brother showed his father-in-law, who is a district police chief, the information I gave him. His father-in-law realized that arresting practitioners was a crime and that there would be retribution for what he did.
He shut down the local brainwashing center and released all the incarcerated practitioners. He also helped secure the release of a practitioner who was about to be sentenced.
Ever since then, practitioners in that district have not been harassed, arrested, or incarcerated. The police chief also told his subordinates to quit the CCP and its affiliates.
In the summer of 2013 my brother showed me a list of 108 police officers who wanted to quit the CCP. They were all from his father-in-law's precinct.
My brother has become a practitioner himself. And after his father-in-law retired from the police force, he and his wife liked to join me in the parks and help me clarify the truth to passersby.
