On October 13, the banner appearing on the Sitong Bridge in Beijing sent shockwaves inside and outside China. As the event continued to draw attention, more details came to light, sending the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) into a state of extreme panic. Soon after, the CCP sent people to guard the Sitong flyover and most of the overpasses on all streets in Beijing.
The outside world may be laughing at how guarding overpasses 24 hours a day has suddenly become another essential task of the CCP to maintain stability. But this is not the first time Beijing has done so. For example, 20 years ago, the CCP ordered all electric poles in Changchun to be guarded, and the number of electric poles in Changchun compared to the number of overpasses in Beijing is much larger.
Why does the CCP guard the electric poles?
According to the Sound of Hope, on March 5, 2002, a great event that shocked both inside and outside China happened in Changchun. Falun Gong practitioners in Changchun successfully broadcast truth-telling dramas contradicting Beijing’s propaganda such as “Falun Dafa Spreads Around the World” and “Self-immolation or just a lie?” In the span of 40-50 minutes, one hundred thousand television viewers in Changchun learned the truth. Changchun residents heatedly discussed that night, and the next day, “Falun Gong has rebelled.”
At that time, the CCP led by Jiang Zemin was extremely frightened, so they issued orders to the Jilin Provincial Party Committee and Changchun City Party Committee, to illegally kidnap more than 5,000 Falun Gong practitioners in Changchun in a very short time. As a result, at least seven Falun Gong practitioners were beaten to death, and 15 others were illegally convicted with heavy sentences. However, the CCP was still not reassured, so it sent people to guard all the power poles that the TV line passed to prevent the television incident from recurring.
At that time, Changchun was in the cold weather of spring, and people wearing military coats could be seen everywhere at night. They guarded not only many electric poles 24/7 but also patrolled many public places and residential areas. Only about a dozen Falun Gong practitioners participated in the broadcast, and many other Falun Gong practitioners knocked on doors to distribute flyers, give away CDs, hang banners, and clarify the truth face-to-face, repeatedly exposing the CCP’s slanderous lies about Falun Gong.
The founder of Falun Gong, Mr. Li Hongzhi, started classes in Changchun in 1992 to teach Falun Gong. Many practitioners have demonstrated the remarkable effectiveness of Falun Gong in healing and health training based on the principles of “Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance,” cultivating morality and becoming a good person. The practice quickly gained public support, relying only on word of mouth. As a result, Falun Gong spread quickly, and at the same time spread to countries and regions around the world.
Before this event, people in Changchun used to see many Falun Gong practitioners doing the exercises in parks and prominent public places. When dozens or hundreds of people are peacefully doing the group exercises, they always hang banners to spread the word so that more people know about Falun Gong. Almost everyone in Changchun knows about Falun Gong. Even if not all of them practice Falun Gong, everyone knows the miraculous healing and health benefits of Falun Gong. They also are aware that Falun Gong teaches people to be good. The influence of the television interference incident in Changchun was powerful. People shared such stories and felt proud.
The CCP’s propaganda system never before met such failure
The CCP has sent people to guard the power poles to prevent the occurrence of such television interference incident. However, facing enormous and unstoppable attempts for truth clarification from Falun Gong practitioners, the CCP has become powerless. Falun Gong practitioners have repeatedly exposed the CCP’s fake “Self-immolation at Tiananmen Square” case and other slanderous lies. The CCP’s deceitful propaganda has never met with such a failure.
Up to now, a large number of mainland Falun Gong practitioners are still using various methods to spread truth-clarifying materials, including hanging slogans, banners, and clarifying the truth face-to-face. For example, hanging banners on overpasses and high places was once a common practice for Falun Gong practitioners; now, banners hang on the Sitong overpass in Beijing.
Falun Gong members clarifying the truth is worth learning
The CCP’s constant pressure to maintain stability and control has increased discontent within the party, and the people’s tolerance has reached its limit. The regime’s evil methods of persecuting Falun Gong are perpetrated on more and more people. People have no place to complain. They can only hang banners on the overpass.
Perhaps more people should follow Falun Gong practitioners’ practice of truth clarification to spread the truth and awaken the people. While protecting yourself, you can also achieve this goal. Falun Gong practitioners realized that the CCP would not stop the persecution, and the book “Nine Commentaries on the Communist Party” thoroughly exposed the nature of the CCP and advised people to quit CCP’s different levels and organizational formats. It is the most extensive truth-spreading campaign in China.
Falun Gong practitioners do not want to get involved in politics. Still, from the brutal persecution they have understood that dissolving the CCP is the only way to end the persecution, and it is also the way to end all the CCP’s other persecutions. Therefore, according to Sound of Hope, more Chinese people should actively join Falun Gong practitioners and help people around them awaken, quit CCP’s different levels and organizations, and dissolve the CCP as soon as possible.
After the disintegration of the CCP, Chinese people could legally express their wishes without having to hang banners on overpasses or have to go to Tiananmen Square. A mainstream Chinese society usually needs freedom of speech, individual freedom, and freedom of religion. Also, according to Sound of Hope, the Chinese also need to quickly return to the traditional culture of the Chinese nation in the past, which can help the country go on a renaissance path.
