2004-03-09 11:52
          Xinhua News Agency published a commentary Tuesday, urging Falun Gong
          followers to wake up, so as to save the lives of themselves and
          their close relatives, and for the sake of the whole of society.
          The Falun Gong followers are urged to avoid becoming sacrificial
          victims, break with the cult, and return to the love of life.
          The commentary, titled "It's Time to Realize Your Errors and Mend
          Your Ways", points out that numerous fanatical Falun Gong followers
          have lost their lives and turned into burned corpses in "Hell"
          because of Li Hongzhi, the cult leader who has given evil
          instructions advocating so-called "Completion" and "Going to

          The fiery suicides and attempted suicides by Falun Gong followers in
          Tian'anmen Square, in central Beijing, last month has rung an alarm
          bell for the whole of society, especially for the people still
          enmeshed in the fallacies of Falun Gong, while a number of
          practitioners were so shocked that they have renounced the cult and
          made a clean break with it, according to the commentary.
          Upon learning of the self-immolation incident in Tian'anmen Square,
          Li Linfei, a woman who had been deeply involved with the cult and
          once attempted to commit suicide for the so-called "completion",
          said that the ghastly facts enabled her to see clearly the evil
          nature of Falun Gong.

          Wu Ping, a local opera artist from Shandong Province, in east China,
          said that the only way out for those who practice Falun Gong is to
          die. The woman's family was almost destroyed by the cult.
          Having come to know that death is the only end for practitioners of
          Falun Gong, over 60 female Falun Gong followers from Sanshui City,
          in southern China's Guangdong Province, pledged not to end up
          sacrificing their lives for the cult, according to the commentary.
          The commentary expresses the belief that under the current campaign
          to expose and criticize Falun Gong, the majority of Falun Gong
          followers are able to recognize the evil nature of the cult and the
          severe harm it does, and to wake up and realize their errors and
          mend their ways.

          It says that the year-long campaign has helped more than 98 percent
          of the followers reject the fallacies of Falun Gong and throw off
          the spiritual control exercised by Li Hongzhi.
          The base of the cult is being destroyed day by day, as more and more
          its followers have come to realize their errors and mended their
          ways, it says.

          While Falun Gong is losing its domestic market, the value of Li
          Hongzhi that could be used by the anti-China forces in the West is
          also diminishing, the commentary stresses.
          The commentary points out that the majority of Falun Gong
          practitioners, including some of those who are still ensnared by the
          cult, are kind and good-natured people who have been deceived by Li

          Xie Yufeng, a former Falun Gong practitioner who was detained many
          times for joining illegal protests and held several hunger strikes
          for a total of 129 days, recalled that, like many others, he began
          to practice Falun Gong in order to heal illness and engage in
          physical training.

          But the more he practiced Falun Gong, the end of which is said to be
          "Completion", according to the cult leader, Xie found that his brain
          was "stuffed nothing but Li Hongzhi". At that time, Xie did nothing
          but worshipped the cult leader and followed his evil instructions.
          The facts show that the majority of these followers were unaware of
          the real purpose of the cult leader and unclear about the background
          and plots of the anti-China forces in the West who are supporting
          and using Falun Gong, according to the commentary.
          The majority of Falun Gong followers are victims as well as "our
          compatriots and brothers and sisters," the commentary says.
          The targets of the government's anti-cult drive are the organization
          of Falun Gong and its backbone elements, the handful of
          wire-pullers, plotters and organizers with political motives who
          want to make trouble, as well as stubborn Falun Gong elements who
          are continuing their illegal activities in the country, according to
          the commentary.

          It urges maximum efforts to isolate and firmly crack down on these
          die-hard elements according to the law, so as to eliminate the cult
          and to avoid future troubles.

          It calls on everyone to adhere to the policy of "Unity, Education
          and Salvation" for the majority of Falun Gong followers, saying that
          this is the important guarantee for the triumph of the anti-cult

          Maximum efforts should be made to educate and save these
          practitioners and enable more of them to break with Falun Gong and
          free them from the spiritual control of the cult, it says.
          The commentary urges extra efforts to bring Falun Gong practitioners
          out of the ridiculous world fabricated by Li Hongzhi and guide them
          to take notice of the developments in the domestic and international
          situations, the future of the Party and the nation, and the great
          cause of the country's reform, opening up and socialist
          modernization drive.

          The commentary praises the Masanjia Education House, in Shenyang
          City, capital of northeast China's Liaoning Province, for its
          efforts in educating Falun Gong practitioners.

          The Zhongyuan Oilfield, a hotbed of Falun Gong, is also praised by
          the commentary for its successful transformation of local followers
          of the cult. While using political education to transform the
          practitioners, the leaders of the oilfield mobilized the relatives
          of the practitioners to influence them.

          It is the duty of the whole society to unite, educate and rescue the
          majority of Falun Gong practitioners, the commentary stresses.
          Former members of the cult who have woken up must not be looked down
          upon by their work units, the society or their families, it adds.
          They should be given assistance in life, employment and study,
          according to the commentary. Students who were expelled from school
          for practicing Falun Gong should be allowed to return to school, it

          An environment of advocating science and opposing superstition
          should be created in China to eliminate the social base and soil of
          Falun Gong, it says.
