Former Falun Gong Follower Turns to Communist PartyWang Dan, a former member of the notorious cult, Falun Gong, in Dalian, in northeast China's Liaoning Province, recently handed in her application for admission into the Communist Party of China (CPC).
"When a person works only for his or her own 'consummation,' it is selfish. It will become a great life, if he or she gives top priority to the interests of the people and is willing to sacrifice life for it," the woman wrote in her application for joining the Party.
Wang, a 36-year-old painter and a mother of a 3-year-old boy, divorced 10 years ago and became addicted to Falun Gong four years ago.
Since July 20, 1999, when the government banned the cult, Wang had abandoned her business and family to take part in the so- called "Hu Fa (Safeguarding the Cult" activities in Beijing, the national capital.
On October 26, 1999, she was detained by local police in Beijing and then sent to the Dalian Transformation-Through- Education House, but she had to be transferred to the Masanjia Transformation-Through-Education House in Liaoning Province due to her leading role in practicing Falung Gong and holding hunger strikes at the Dalian house.
In Masanjia, she still refused all kinds of transformation efforts by the government, but finally she woke up from the nightmare.
After struggling against her own, the woman realized that all the sayings of the cult are contradictory.
"I had studied and practiced Falun Gong for my own ' consummation' all these days, which is really selfish," she said.
On April 17, 2000, Wang left the transformation house one year ahead of the set term because she broke with Falun Gong.
Since then, she has restarted her company while voluntarily helping transform other followers of the cult.
"The careful transformation by the Party has given me a new life," she said.
