          --How Falun Gong Ruined Lives of Ordinary People
          The now banned Falun Gong has claimed upwards of 1500 lives in
          China.  Readers of the following 14 stories can judge for themselves
          if this deadly cult should be allowed to go unchecked.
          1. Around 10.p.m. February 6, 2000, Huang Daisheng, an elderly,
          childless man of Dasheng village near Panyu City of Guangdong
          Province, was brutally attacked by Yuan Runtian, a female Falun Gong
          practitioner living in the same village. Yuan had begun practicing
          Falun Gong in 1996 when she was a vocational school student in  
          Guangzhou. The exercise seemed quite effective in the beginning to
          improve her concentration and lift her sagging spirit. But before
          long her personality started to change. While keeping to herself
          most of the time, she became increasingly withdrawn and introvert.
          After graduation in March 1999, she found a job near her home, only
          to quit it shortly after. Not wanting to help the family with crops
          and house chores and even tired of speaking to her parents, she
          spent all her time practicing Falun Gong behind closed doors. Some
          time in November 1999, Yuan began picturing herself wondering in a
          strange world, with Master Li Hongzhi and many men vying to have sex
          with her or have her beheaded. Among them was Mr. Huang Daisheng.
          Even though the two had never talked to each other before, she was
          convinced that Huang was a demon that had violated and hurt her in
          the "other world" and therefore deserved to die. On the evening of
          February 6, 2000, a tormented Yuan bicycled to Huang's home and
          slashed the old man twice in the face with a kitchen knife.
          2. Around 9 p.m. December 23, 1999, the 60-year old Lu Qingsheng, a
          director at the Heilongjiang Provincial Forestry Bureau, was hacked
          to death by his subordinate Zou Gang, a 39-year old Falun Gong
          practitioner. Three other employees, including the 30-year old
          Yajie, were seriously wounded in the incident. According to Zou, he
          had begun practicing Falun Gong in August 1995 and it was not until
          the previous month that he began having hallucinations in which he
          heard Li Hongzhi say, "Lu and Yajie were born your exterminator and
          the only way you can escape death is to have them killed first." Zou
          then bought a heavy kitchen knife on December 22 and committed the
          killing the following day.
          3. On December 19, 1999, Jiang Wenli, a 56-year old female Falun
          Gong practitioner  who lived in Bengbu City of Anhui Province, was
          found lying on the floor of her freezing home, half naked and
          quivering with cold. Her husband, already dead, was a gruesome mess.
          His badly mutilated body bore deep knife and scissor wounds and
          shreds of human flesh were scattered all over the room. "Beloved Li
          Hongzhi," screamed the dying woman, "Come quickly to save me." On
          December 20, Jiang was   pronounced dead.
          Not long after Jiang began practicing Falun Gong in November 1998,
          her personality took a gradual change for the worse. Staying home at
          daytime and going out at night, she refused all visitors, even
          doctors who came to see her ailing husband. On the afternoon of
          December 19, her husband passed away. Jiang felt as if some one was
          commanding her to remove and eat the dark boils on dead body so that
          the man could go back to life again.
          4. On the morning of November 26, 1999, 33-year old Falun Gong
          practitioner Zhu Changjiu, a farmer at Zhanggezhuang Village of
          Renqiu City, Hebei Province, hacked his 73-year old father and
          69-year old mother to death at their home because they, according to
          Zhu, had tried to talk him out of the practice and taken his Falun
          Gong literature away.
          5. At 3 a.m. on August 11, 1999, heart-wrenching screams of a little
          boy were heard in the village of Qianjin Township, Qionglai City of
          Sichuan Province. Panicked by the "doomsday" prophesy of Li Hongzhi,
          Falun Gong practitioner Tang Zhihua cut off his two-year old son's
          penis with a kitchen knife. Two months before the incident, Tang's
          wife, also a devout practitioner, suddenly left home and disappeared
          without a trace.
          6. In the early morning of July 17, 1999, Long Gang, a restaurant
          owner in suburban Chongqing, breaking free from family members and
          neighbors, threw himself into the river from the top of a bridge,
          carrying his 6-year old son in his arms. The boy was rescued, but
          Long was drowned. People who knew him told reporters that since
          practicing Falun Gong, Long often spoke of the earth's explosion and
          his plan to escape the disaster by levitating to heaven. His wife
          blamed Falun Gong for destroying the happy family.
          7. On June 5, 1999, 16-year old Xu, a student at Linjiang Middle
          School of Jilin Province, told her classmates that since mankind
          would soon be destroyed and the earth explode, they might just as
          well foretaste the doomsday by taking some sleeping pills. She gave
          each of a dozen students 2 to 3 pills but one girl, out of
          curiosity, took 25. All of them developed symptoms. But thanks to
          timely medical attention, none, including the girl taking 25 pills,
          suffered any serious effect.
          Influenced by her parents who were both practitioners, Xu began
          practicing Falun Gong in June, 1998. Her academic performance took a
          nosedive as she became more and more obsessed with the exercise.
          When teachers discussed the problem with her parents, they replied,
          "It is no use to study well, it will be OK if she knows how to
          practice Falun Gong."
          8. At 2 a.m., March 20, 1999, a cold-blooded murder was reported in
          Chengde City, Hebei Province. The weapon was a foot-long dagger, the
          killer, a 17-year old Falun Gong practitioner, and the victims, his
          own parents.  During the interrogation, Li Ting called himself  
          "Buddha" while his parents demons.  "Am I supposed to kill demons?"
          he asked.   When asked where he had learned about all this, Li said,
          "I spent a week learning"Falun Gong" in the Resort Palace at Chengde
          after graduating from junior middle school.  I then bought some
          Falun Gong literature and practiced a lot ."
          9. Dong Ning was a 26-year old worker at the Changhong Electric
          Mechanical Company Ltd. in Weihai City, Shandong Province. Convinced
          that his practice of  Falun Gong had attained perfection, he decided
          to release a number of souls by killing someone first and himself
          afterwards. He chose Liu, a fellow worker at his workshop, his first
          target. On January 7, he attacked Liu with a heavy metal object but
          missed. Next day, Dong attacked his father with a sharp knife, but
          failed again. Desperate to succeed, he broke into his neighbor's
          house and stabbed retired official Jiang in the neck. In the
          struggle,  the son of Jiang also suffered multiple knife wounds in
          the waist and legs.  In custody, Dong was asked of his motivation.
          He said, "I was only thinking how I can bring people away,  the
          loved ones and friends in particular. Some one made me do this
          because I wanted perfection."
          10. Around 10 a.m. November 6, 1999, 46-year old Gao Encheng, a
          clerk at the township industrial and commercial office in Kaixian
          County of Chongqing Municipality, put his arms around his son and
          jumped from the roof of a four-story building. Gao was fatally
          wounded and died shortly after. But the boy survived. Both Gao and
          his wife were Falun Gong practitioners with Gao serving as the head
          of a practicing station. Four days before the incident, Gao withdrew
          all his bank deposits and distributed them among his daughter,
          parents and mother-in-law. He told them that he had already attained
          divinity and would not need money any more. Just before jumping, he
          yelled at the crowd, "I don't have to talk to you earthly beings, my
          son knows me best."  Even Gao was lying in a pool of blood, his wife
          would still not let doctors touch him, saying that Li Hongzhi would
          give him all the protection.
          11. Yuan Yuge was a 35-year old housewife living in Renqiu City,
          Hebei Province. She and her husband began practicing Falun Gong in
          1997. Later they forced their 10-year old son to do the same. On
          June 25, 1998, Yuan, hallucinating to have become immortal, put her
          son on the back seat of her bicycle and rode all the way into the
          moat. The child struggled to safety. Yuan was later saved and sent
          to hospital by family members.
          12. Pounding more than one hundred times with a shovel and wooden
          pole, Wang Anshou, a 36-year old worker at a machine-building plant
          in Xintai County, Shandong Province, reduced his father to a pulp on
          the morning of April 8, 1998. Wang started practicing Falun Gong
          only three months before the incident. Unhappy with what he believed
          was their cold attitude towards his choice, the previously pious and
          loving Wang began to see his father and his wife as ugly "tiger
          spirit" and "fox spirit" that must be put away. Wang was later
          diagnosed to have suffered a severe case of schizophrenia.
          13. Wu Deqiao was a 36-year old employee at a grocery store in
          Wujiang City, Jiangsu Province. On the night of February 26, 1998,
          while practicing Falun Gong at home, he suddenly felt that he had
          already become a "Buddha". When his wife tried to stop him, Wu
          became greatly infuriated and saw the woman as a bad curse. He
          picked up a knife from the kitchen and hacked her several times. She
          was killed instantly. Wu had just started practicing Falun Gong. One
          day before the incident, he was caught yelling "earthquake" at
          midnight. When asked why, he said, "I felt as if I was being chased
          by a killer."
          14. Around 9 a.m. August 23, 1996, 24-year old Wang Xuezhong of
          Jiahe County, Hunan Province suddenly pointed his finger at his
          father and accused him of being a demon. Without listening to any
          explanation, the son brandished a heavy kitchen knife and landed it
          on the father's head, neck and chest 17 times, killing the old man
          on the spot. Police investigation shows that Wang was suffering from
          serious schizophrenia when committing the crime. Wang was known to
          be a strait A student. But during the second year of senior middle
          school, he became attracted to Falun Gong, believing that practice
          would enable him to predict the contents of the college entrance
