A Falun Gong practitioner from Dashiqiao municipality, Liaoning Province, died from illness. A small number of stubborn practitioners exploited this death, created lies, framed a case against the local police force, and created a public disturbance. An overseas-based Falun Gong web site created an unbelievable story about this death and made false charges against the local government and local police authorities. The Falun Gong cult believed that this would win overseas support. However, they calculated incorrectly.

No lies can live through tests. An in-depth look into the story of this death shows that this story was so ridiculous that even the husband of the dead Falun Gong practitioner could not believe it. The fact was this Falun Gong practitioner died of an illness, but the Falun Gong cult said this practitioner was beaten to death. The fact was that police forces and medical workers tried their best to save the life of this Falun Gong practitioner when she was found, but the Falun Gong cult said police forces killed her. Such lies that call black white show that the Falun Gong cult does not have a sense of shame.

At present, the Falun Gong cult has been banned by the central government in accordance with the law, a group of crucial members of the Falun Gong cult have been punished in accordance with the law, the majority of Falun Gong practitioners have already separated from the Falun Gong cult, and Li Hongzhi's evil theories have become gradually less and less popular. However, winds are still blowing although trees' leaves and branches are still. We should clearly understand a small number of stubborn Falun Gong practitioners are still moving around, Li Hongzhi is still engaged in traitorous activities overseas, and a small number of anti-China forces are still exploiting Falun Gong to defame the Chinese government. Our struggle against Falun Gong is still a long-term, arduous and complex task. We should never be lighthearted about it.

This incident that occurred in Dashiqiao municipality, Liaoning Province, was not the result of accidental or sporadic causes. Since the trend of the Falun Gong cult instigating Falun Gong practitioners to start large riots was curbed, an extremely small number of stubborn Falun Gong practitioners have adopted a strategy of underground struggle. They have used immoral methods, collected information, spread leaflets, created rumours, defamed other people, sparked violence in public, and disrupted social order. Although the activities of the Falun Gong cult cannot change our normal lives and cannot impede China's reform, opening up and modernization construction, they still have negative consequences. They have especially brought harm to elderly people, women and children, which should not be overlooked. It should be noted that when stubborn Falun Gong stubborn practitioners make trouble in China, Li Hongzhi and his followers exploit these opportunities to defame and verbally attack the Chinese government in an attempt to save themselves from complete failure. Therefore, we should firmly crack down on crimes of the Falun Gong cult in accordance with the law. In addition, we should consistently carry out and implement the policy of unity, education and redemption issued by the party and the government, and should save the majority of Falun Gong practitioners from the dangers of obsession with Falun Gong.

Most cults thrive through lies and myths. Without lies, the Falun Gong cult could not last another day. Lies cannot disguise facts. As long as we tell the public the truth, the truth about the Falun Gong cult and its crimes will be brought to light, and lies created by the Falun Gong cult will not confuse any more people.
