The Real Time Communication (RTC) platform is a website where Falun Dafa practitioners work together to call people in China to tell them about Falun Dafa and the persecution and to encourage them to quit the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) and its youth organizations.
I began to make calls on the platform last October. My journey on this platform started with learning how to use a computer, participating in the training, and eventually talking to people on the calls.
Once, I called a number in the city of Shenzhen. When I greeted the person on the other end, he asked me if I was a Falun Dafa practitioner. I confirmed that I was and proceeded to tell him about Falun Dafa. He listened, and said, “I understand you. I’m on your side!” He also agreed to quit the Party.
I continued, “Sir, you are someone with a conscience. You have chosen a good future for yourself. Buddhas and gods look at people’s hearts. I wish you the best!” He thanked me.
Giving a Chance
Another time, the person hung up on me after a minute into the call. I wanted to give him another chance, so I called him again the next day. He picked up the call and I continued to clarify the truth. I talked about the reasons for the current decline in human morality. I told him that ‘Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance’ are universal values for being a good person. I asked him, “You have listened to me for a while, may I ask if what I said made sense to you?”
He said, “No, it doesn’t! I have to work and lead my life, so I have to follow the CCP.”
I replied, “I can also understand where you’re coming from, you know former Chairman Liu Shaoqi [of the Standing Committee of the National People’s Congress] and other government officials, which one of them didn’t follow the CCP? But look what happened to them. They were all persecuted by the Party. Look at what happened to Zhou Yongkang and Li Dongsheng, who had followed the CCP to persecute Dafa practitioners? They have all been imprisoned. Please think it over. How about I give you a pseudonym to quit the Party to ensure your safety?” He paused for a while, before saying, “Okay.”
He told me why he hung up on me the day before and apologized. I said, “I understand. I don’t blame you.
There was another person whom I had talked to for 15 minutes. He went from initially saying that he would report me to the police, to eventually being receptive to what I had to say. I wasn’t sure if what I said had touched him, but he was tearful as he told me about his suffering since childhood. His family was so poor that he couldn’t afford to go to school, and he never joined the CCP.
I comforted him by saying, “Young man, please don’t cry. I am here to tell you the facts and the principles of being a good person. He sincerely thanked me.
This call made me cherish all lives, as well as our environment of the RTC platform even more.
