[Fushun City, Liaoning Province] Liaoning Practitioner Zhong Yunxiu Died After Jumping off a Train While Being Escorted Back from Validating Falun Dafa Zhong Yunxiu, female, 27 years old, was a resident of Shanhe Village, Nankouqian Town, Qingyuan County in Fushun City, Liaoning Province. She was a middle school English teacher in Qingyuan County's Beisanjia Middle School. She went to appeal in Beijing on July 21, 1999. On July 28, she was detained in Jietai Temple in Beijing. On July 29, while being escorted back to Fushun City, she died after jumping off the train in attempt to escape from her captors. [Heilongjiang Province] Heilongjiang Province Practitioner Yu Shuqin Died After Jumping Off a Train While Being Escorted Back from Validating Falun Dafa Yu Shuqin, a former doctor of the County Family Planning Bureau, went to appeal in Beijing in October 1999, and was detained and escorted back by county police officer Zhang Yi and other police. On the way back, trying to escape from her unlawful captors, she jumped off the train in Harbin City [Heilongjiang Province] and died. The police did not give any explanation about her death. [Zhuhai City, Guangdong Province] United States Permanent Resident and Falun Dafa Practitioner, Liao Weixiong, is Detained Liao Weixiong, president of Zhuhai City's Qunan Company, was arrested and detained secretly before New Year's Day by officials from Guangdong Province and Zhuhai City Public Security Bureau. His relatives went to inquire of the police department about the location for his illegal incarceration, but were refused an answer. What makes this so tragic is that Mr. Liao immigrated to the United States several years ago and is a permanent, legal resident of the United States. His wife and daughter are currently living in the US. We call on the international community to help Mr. Liao. We also demand that Guangdong Province Public Security Bureau release Liao Weixiong immediately. [Beijing] Policeman Took Away a Practitioner's Child at Tiananmen Square A female practitioner brought her child to Tiananmen Square to validate Dafa. However, the policeman and some roughnecks took her 5-6 year old child away. The child's whereabouts are unknown. Currently the mother is illegally serving time in a detention center. As the evils attempted to sell practitioner's organs, the situation of the child is cause for much worry and concern. We hope that all kind people pay attention to this matter. It is urgent that we ALL stop the evil followers of Jiang Zemin from committing more crimes and brutality and transgressions against human rights. [China] Information From an Insider of the Judiciary System We heard from an insider that the Judiciary System revealed that the Central Government sent out a document to escalate the "Falun Gong" issue. The summary of the document is that "the 'struggle' with Falun Gong should be escalated to a level of a political struggle and looked at as a matter of 'life or death.'" The document was delivered to the officials at the Bureau [city government] level. Within the Judiciary System, the document was passed on to everyone, except those who had practiced Falun Gong. Those who practiced before had to declare their positions on the Falun Gong issue. If they refused to cooperate with Jiang Zemin's government and continued practicing, they would be put on probation, detained and expelled from their work; all of this is illegal. In addition, the order continues, every government department should have somebody on duty around the clock to spy on Falun Gong practitioners. They were urged to cooperate to "crack down" on Falun Gong as soon as they get any report of Falun Gong activities. [China] Local Government's Double Policies According to related sources, in order to keep their positions, on the one hand every local government leader went all out to prevent local practitioners from appealing in Beijing, and persecuted those practitioners who still keep on going to Beijing to appeal. On the other hand, they enticed Beijing police with a great amount of money, asking them to reduce the actual number of local practitioners who went to appeal in Beijing. For example, Shandong Province had the highest number of practitioners appealing in Beijing. On average, daily there were 20 practitioners who went to Tiananmen Square to do exercises and validate Dafa. However, we found out that the numbers actually listed under Shandong Province showed a comparatively much smaller number. We think the reason for falsifying the report is that the Shandong Government contributed 2 million Yuan to support Tiananmen Police Station and other related departments in Beijing. The greedy police want to get their smear money and therefore falsified the report. The money was used as a bonus to hire gangsters to arrest or beat Dafa practitioners at Tiananmen Square. Thus, if police caught twenty Shandong Practitioners, they would just report two or three. In addition, Shandong Police went to Tiananmen Square to arrest practitioners directly. If police found Shandong Province practitioners, they would bring them back to Shandong Province directly without keeping correct records of the police actions. Therefore, Shandong Province has the highest number of practitioners who were beaten to death. It is said that police in other provinces began to follow the examples of Shandong Province. They all went to Beijing to bribe the Beijing police. Consequently, though more and more practitioners went to appeal in Beijing, the number reported to the Central Government is becoming smaller and smaller. (The actual number perhaps is dozens of times more than the number reported to the Central Government.). So this is how the illusion of "most of Falun Gong practitioners were transformed" was fabricated. [Master Li, in Essentials for Further Advances states: "Wealth without virtue will harm all sentient beings." Those evil scum who persecute Falun Dafa practitioners will not be able to get any benefits from their illegally attained riches]. [Changchun City, Jilin Province] Overseas Phone Calls Effectively Suppressed the Evil After the home phone numbers of some evil guards in Changchun City Heizuizi Female Labor Camp were posted on the Internet, a lot of overseas long distance calls were dialed in. It effectively suppressed the evils' rampant, brutal behaviors. Changchun City Dafa practitioners would like to show their great respect and appreciation to overseas practitioners who had made the calls. According to some information from the practitioners who were recently released, though these guards continually complained about the "telephone disturbance," their attitude towards Dafa practitioners had changed a lot. Other guards were all afraid of their phone numbers being posted on the Internet. Therefore, their extremely overbearing behavior was restrained. Practitioners said that the guards were everyday people, after all. They would concentrate their efforts to please their leader so they could get as much bonus as possible and had nothing to worry about financially in their life. Once the phone calls started to affect their personal life, their first consideration would be their personal interests. Lately, more and more practitioners have gone to Beijing and were detained illegally and sent back. A lot of practitioners were detained several times. Recently, a team in a labor re-education center was going to hold a meeting to "disclose and criticize Falun Gong." One practitioner bravely went to the front of the group and told others not to give the evil an audience. She then tore up the propaganda materials. Though this practitioner was put into a so-called "restricted cell," the evil intention was stopped. They then interrupted the meeting and never mention it later. We knew that it was promoting and building up the righteous thoughts about Dafa in the human world, while rejecting the evil at the same time. [Yilan County, Heilongjiang Province] Practitioners Were Brutally Persecuted in the Yilan County Public Security Bureau Li Baihe, vice director in Yilan County Public Security Bureau shocked female practitioners with electric batons on the inner side of their legs, which caused serious swelling. He hit practitioners on their heads, slapped their faces, kicked them and beat them with a strap. He punched needles under their fingernails and stuck a spoon between their ribs. They beat the buttocks of a practitioner who had been on a hunger strike for five days. Her hips were covered with bruises after the torture. Guo Qingji in Yilan County Public Security Bureau slapped practitioners' faces and cruelly tortured them physically with a sinister abuse described as "driving airplane." Policemen in the political and security unit, pre-interrogation unit, detective unit and No.2 Detention Center of County Public Security Bureau wrapped practitioners' heads with plastic bags to suffocate them while beating them up with straps. Vice director Lin Zhong of No.2 Detention Center and policeman Shang Dezhong beat up practitioners until they lost consciousness several times. They also forced practitioners to sit outside in the cold on a metal chair while pouring ice-cold water on them. More than ten practitioners were sent to labor re-education illegally in Yilan County. They are: Wang Shujuan, Sun Jiechu, Yan Jiguo, Li Yuxia, Du Jing, Ning Shuxian, Zhao Jiancai, Guo Jingchao, Li Yuhua, Wu Shulian and Song Ruiyi. Li Yuxia's husband, Li Yanjun, was detained when he publicly clarified the truth about Falun Dafa . He was then tortured at the hands of Li Baihe in the detective unit, after which he was illegally sentenced and was unlawfully sent to labor re-education. His paralyzed father and a 14-year-old son were left at home alone. Even the property certificate of their house was impounded. Each practitioner was fined illegally from 8,000 to 10,000 Yuan [10,000 Yuan equals about $1,200, the average monthly income $25.00 in the countryside]. The practitioners can only be released after they pay the fine. The release also needs to be approved by the County Leader Zhao Man who has to affix his signature on the release papers. There are 200 practitioners who have been illegally fined so far. We call on all people all over the free world, from all walks of life, to give us their moral support and pay close attention to this outrageous, sad situation. We appreciate any telephone calls or letters to the people listed below, for our support can help put an end to this shame of the 21st Century.

[Northeast Area of China] Practitioners Stepped Forward Collectively in a City and Its Neighboring Counties of Northeast China Practitioners took collective action on the night of December 31, 2000. In a city and its neighboring counties in northeastern China, they went out to validate Dafa. They brought along their family members, who are non-practitioners, and did a great job! They sent out 120,000 copies of Dafa truth materials, hung out 3,000 banners, 3,000 small flags, 2,600 posters, and distributed more than a thousand audio tapes. They also installed large, high volume speakers near detention centers and other places which broadcast the "Universe Sound of Falun Dafa Radio Station of the World." The officials at a labor re-education camp were so scared that they requested reinforcements from many policemen, police cars and even police dogs to search for practitioners. However, all of the practitioners left safely. This action again spread Dafa with wisdom. Some posters were hung at great heights so that the police had to use fire engines to take them down. People who passed by said: Falun Gong practitioners are so united! Some of the police said: Falun Gong practitioners are having lots of activities. We'd better not let the head know about this; otherwise he will ask us to wait outside at those spots. Those Falun Gong practitioners are all good people, why should we bother them all the time! Some people said: XX party will not be able to control Falun Gong! Through clarifying the truth, many people who had the wrong idea about Falun Dafa have changed their minds and gained righteous thoughts of the universal Dafa. [Shandong Province] Practitioners from Shandong Province Took Action to Validate Dafa in the New Year Practitioners from a region in Shandong province hung great quantities of banners along one hundred miles of highway. Some of the posters say: "Jiang Zemin, Return the Clean Reputation to Falun Dafa!" "Falun Dafa is Good!" etc. [China] A Party Secretary has been "Transformed" The party secretary of a work unit, who is in charge of transforming Falun Gong practitioners, became a changed person. He became convinced of the principle of Zhen-Shan-Ren [Truthfulness, Compassion, Forbearance] through his frequent contact with Dafa practitioners and reading Zhuan Falun. Since July 2000, he had started to cultivate Falun Gong and has joined the practitioners to tell the truth to the people. He made banners, sent out flyers, and transmitted Minghui materials. He often hangs the banners and distributes flyers with other practitioners. [Shijiazhuang City, Hebei province] Some Police Who Still have a Conscience Quietly Informed the Practitioners: Clean Your Homes; There should be Nothing Obvious Left in the Open Some practitioners from Shijiazhuang City, Hebei Province distributed many letters with personal experiences of cultivating Dafa to their relatives and friends. Under the pressure of the leaders of the work unit, some of them handed over the letters to the police. One of the leaders at the police station came to a practitioner's spouse secretly and said: "Clean up your home carefully. In case we will have to search your home under the pressure, we want to make sure that we will not find anything (Dafa materials) out in the open." [Beijing] A Field of Righteous Mind A female practitioner was arrested by the police when she validated Dafa in Tiananmen Square. She was sent to the Shunyi County Police Station, along with other practitioners, since she would not tell her name. An evil policeman brought her outside and tried to take off her clothes. First he ordered her to take off the clothes by herself. When refused, the policeman handcuffed her on the pillar in the hallway and unbuttoned her sweater. When he started to untie her belt, the practitioner had a very righteous thought at the moment: "I am the guardian who protect Dafa in human world, I should be responsible for all righteous elements in the cosmos." Then she fixed her eyes on this policeman and said: "You also have your mother, wife, daughter and sisters. Will you do the same thing to them?" This evil person withdrew his hands and lowered his head. After a while, the policeman removed the handcuffs of the practitioner and asked her: "Do you hate me?" The practitioner replied: "How can I hate you? The reason we go to Tiananmen Square to tell the truth is to save people including you." [Shijiazhuang, Hebei Province] Practitioners from Shijiazhuang Female Detention Center Experience Further Persecution for Jointly Suing Jiang Zemin. Ninety-nine practitioners from the Fourth Team, Shijiazhuang Female Detention Center, jointly filed a lawsuit against Jiang Zemin with the highest level of authority. They also submitted the appealing letter and a letter to Premier Zhu Rongji on December 16, 2000. On the next day, the police transferred the group leader away from this team of practitioners. On the third day, they tricked Dafa practitioners Liu Juhua and Zhu Hong who submitted the documents, and took them away. No one knows where they were taken. The detention center started to investigate and tried to find out the identity of the practitioner who drafted the documents. This case is developing; they are planning to use horrible tortures on the Dafa practitioners who uphold justice and the truth. We call for all fellow practitioners and all kind-hearted people in the world give us your support and help! Please, make phone calls or write letters to the officials, listed below. According to a source from the detention center on January 5, 2001, at least three female practitioners' lives are in critical condition now. Presently their family members have been informed to take them back home for medical care. It is also said that the families were only allowed to sign the papers to take the practitioners home. They were not allowed to learn any information about the practitioners in custody. The practitioners who still remain in custody were not allowed to see their families as well. We will keep you updated on this case. Address of the Fourth Team, Shijiazhuang Female Detention Center: 8 Nan Gaoji Street, Shijiazhuang City, Hebei Province, Zip Code: 050061 The team leader: Shang Changming: phone: 011-86-311-7793644 [Hengshui, Hebei province] Seven Practitioner, Old and Young, Took Five Days to Get to Beijing, Safeguarding Dafa. They Traveled by Tricycle, Bicycle and by Foot. Seven practitioners from Hengshui Area, Hebei Province went to Beijing to safeguard Dafa on December 17. Among them are: a couple with their 4-year-old daughter from Jing County and other practitioners from Fucheng County. A 70-year-old lady wanted to go Beijing, but her family tried to stop her. She said: "I will 'bump' myself to death if you don't allow me to go!" Then, one of them rode the tricycle with the old lady and a little girl sitting on it. Others had to walk. One day later, they bought two bicycles in Xian County, so they rode for another four days and four nights. On December 23, they unfurled the banner at Tiananmen Square. All of them have been arrested except the mother with her little girl. That woman was released the same day since her daughter is too young. We have no further information about rest of the practitioners. [Dagang District, Tianjin City] The Record of the Evil in Dagang District Detention Center, Tianjin City I went to Beijing to appeal on July 19, 2000, and was transferred from Changping County of Beijing to Dagang District Detention Center where the evil forces are among the most vicious. They used especially cruel ways to torture practitioners: force-feeding hot pepper powder through practitioner's nose and beating their faces with electric batons. Some practitioner's faces were full of blisters due to the beating. An old lady from Xinjiang Province was beaten on the buttocks. Her buttocks were covered with bruises all-over. They demanded some practitioners to raise up their feet so they could beat the soles of their feet with electric batons; a 40-year-old practitioner from Liaoning Province was ordered to sit on the ground when being interrogated. The police put a chair on her head and then sat on it. An English teacher from a middle school in Changsha City [Hunan Province] was forced to stand in the "crossing" position. The police pulled her hair, beat her face and brutally abused her fingers and ribs with a tooth bush. Her fingers were completed smashed and mutilated. They beat male practitioners even more viciously. All practitioners from Beijing who did not tell their names experienced brutal beatings. Two male practitioners had to endure the beatings. Others had to tell their names after a one-night beating and then were sent to their hometowns. A female practitioner bumped her head on the wall and fainted. However, she was interrogated for the whole night afterwards, even under that condition. The doctor suggested sending her to a major hospital for examination, but the guard ignored the suggestion and continued to torture her. Officials in Tianjin City said: "There are orders from Beijing that we can do whatever we want to torture practitioners as long as we keep them alive." The head of the police station of Dagang District said: "One can get a 1,000 Yuan bonus for 'transforming' a practitioner." [Feidong County, Anhui Province] Expose the Inside Story of the Detention Center in Feidong County, Anhui Province The detention center in Feidong County uses a variety of ways to torture Dafa practitioners, including electrical clubs, whips made of bamboo, crosses, shackles, handcuffs, forcing practitioners to answer questions on their knees, pulling their hairs, and forcing them wash the clothes of the officials. In May 1999, Zhang Yushu (over 50 years old) was tied to a cross; her hands and feet were cuffed on the four corners of a wood board for a whole night. She was not taken off the board until she was found sweating and having an irregular pulse. The guards in the detention center (one of them was doctor Cai) asked Dafa practitioners to wash clothes for them. When their requests were rejected, they brutally beat practitioners and pulled their hair, pulling out clumps of it. Practitioners' faces were swollen and they were spitting blood after the torture. Other people in the cells all started to cry when they witnessed the scene. Many common criminals were also deeply moved by practitioners' persistence in the truth. They forced Dafa practitioners to answer questions on their knees, with their hands and feet cuffed. Sometimes, they cuffed practitioners' hands and feet together. [Feidong County, Anhui Province] There will be an Illegal Hearing for Dafa Practitioner Zhang Junru from Anhui Province Zhang Junru, female, Dafa practitioner from Feidong County, Anhui province, went to Beijing to appeal for Dafa and was arrested several times. However, she still very firmly believes in Dafa. Recently, she was arrested while studying the Fa with a group. She will be tried in an "open trial" around January 10, 2001. We hope kind-hearted people pay close attention to this trial. The phone number for the People's Public Prosecutor of Feidong County: 011-86-551-7712905 The phone number for the People's Court of Feidong County: 011-86-551-7711478 The phone number for the Public Security Bureau of Feidong County: 011-86-551-7711022 [Shijiazhuang City, Hebei Province] Practitioner Liu Miaoqin Couldn't Go Back Home Hebei Provincial Second Guest House employee Liu Miaoqin was sent to her hometown for fear of her going to Beijing to appeal for Falun Dafa. On the 30th [12/30/2000], they forced her to come back to her work place to be detained. When passing by Hebei Theater, Liu Miaoqin jumped out of the train and disappeared. Her son, who is a high school student, is left home alone. Her husband, Hu Yuanchao, who works for Hebei Water Conservancy Bureau, has been illegally detained since the 30th for validating Dafa. [Yantai City, Shandong Province] Practitioner Wang Zhaomei was Arrested after Going to Beijing to Appeal for Dafa Many Times Dafa practitioner Wang Zhaomei from Qikuang area in Laishan District went to Beijing to appeal for Dafa several times. He was detained and beaten up each time. Before the New Year, he was arrested again on the train from Yantai to Beijing and is now detained in Kongjiatan detention center at Laishan district. We don't know his circumstances. [Shijiazhuang City, Hebei Province] The Third Railroad Bureau of Shijiazhuang City Prosecutes Dafa Practitioners Recently, on the bulletin board of the Third Railroad Bureau Second Branch's employee residential area, a notice was posted, saying: Attention: As requested from high-level government, from today on, all Falun Gong practitioners who go to Beijing shall be fined 15,000 Yuan. Dec. 25, 2000 The Second Branch of Third Railroad Bureau This is the second notice since July 2000. In 1994, Master Li taught Dafa to people in Shijiazhang city. Over 50 people in the Second Branch started to practice Falun Dafa. Practitioners cultivate themselves, trying to do everything in accordance of Zhen-Shan-Ren [Truthfulness, Compassion, Forbearance] and to become good people in all circumstances. Through practicing Falun Gong, most of them have gained good health and completely eliminated their illnesses, such as high blood pressure, heart disease, diabetes, arthritis, etc. They've saved lots of money on medical expenses for the government. Since July 20, 1999, more than 10 practitioners from the Second Branch have gone to Beijing to appeal for Dafa, urging the government to correct its wrong decision of persecuting Falun Gong. December 27, 2000 [Miyun County, Beijing] Recent News of Dafa Practitioners Being Persecuted in Miyun County Zhang Huilan, 47 years old, was arrested when distributing Dafa materials on November 2, 2000. During her time at the detention center, she went on a hunger strike to protest the unlawful imprisonment. She was force-fed and endured endless tortures and sufferings. However, her belief in Dafa could not be changed. Now, she is sentenced to one year in a labor camp. We don't know her circumstances in the camp. Fu Wenmin, 39 years old, was arrested on November 8, 2000 for distributing Dafa materials, and is now sentenced to one year in labor camp. We don't know the circumstances. Li Ying (pseudonym), female, 56 years old, was taken away from home on November 8, 2001. Police suspected that she used her own money to print Dafa materials. She was later released for lack of evidence. Chen Lan (pseudonym), female, 50 years old, was illegally taken away by police in November 2000 for no reason and detained for over 20 days. She is now released. On November 2, 2000, Feng Lianyin, male, 49 years old, was taken from his office by police. Under the suspicion of distributing Dafa materials, he was tied onto electrical poles on the street during the daytime. He was later sent to the Miyun County detention center to be jailed together with common criminals. He was beaten and tortured; his meals were even taken away. The quilts and clothes his family sent in were withheld from him. He had to sleep on the cement floor during the night. On December 12, he was sent to a labor camp. We don't know his circumstances at the camp. Li Zhenxia (pseudonym), 47 years old, and her child, were illegally arrested on her way to a department store July 2000. She was illegally detained for over four months. Hao Mei (pseudonym), 46 years old, was taken away from home and sent to the Miyun County Detention Center at 6pm in the evening of November 6. She was released on November 24. It is said that those police who are in charge of Falun Gong practitioners have to go to Beijing almost every day to arrest and take with them Dafa practitioners who have gone there to appeal. They receive about 80 practitioners daily. Because none of the practitioners would tell their names and addresses, they were immediately sent to several detention centers in Beijing.

[China] A Supplementary Letter Attached to Truth Clarifying Materials In order to clarify the truth better, a practitioner attached the following letter when distributing truth-clarifying materials to people: Honorable ladies and gentlemen: Please forgive me for taking the liberty of writing this letter to you. As a Falun Dafa practitioner and an ordinary person, I'd like to seriously and responsibly tell you about the "Falun Gong Truth" that I know. We are not involved in politics, nor are we against the government; neither do we treat anybody as enemy. What we would like to do is to call on your conscience. We would like to help you understand "Truthfulness, Benevolence, Forbearance" and "Falun Dafa" through our experiences. Because of the current persecution situation, I cannot leave my name. Your kind understanding is appreciated. A Falun Dafa Practitioner [China] Suggestion: Paste Small Posters on Public Bus Stop Signs There is enough space for us to paste small posters or brief truth-clarifying materials on the public bus stop signs without covering the names of the bus stations (Please do not cover station names or its scheduling information when doing so). Public bus stops are very crowded everyday. A lot of people will take a look at the board and they will see our Hong Fa posters at that time. Bus stops are all over cities and suburban areas. There are many stops for every route. It is hard for police to monitor them all. I think this method of doing Hongfa [promoting Falun Dafa] will be greatly effective. [China] Exposing the Special Agents Who Made their Ways into Labor Camps At the beginning of September 2000, special agent Lu Rong, who claimed to be a Dafa practitioner, made her way into the No. 4 Team of Shijiazhuang Labor Camp. She deceived practitioners with contemptible means and incited practitioners to write the "four letters." She also said she had been enlightened by Master to help practitioners to get out of labor camps. She used the Fa to criticize the Fa, and categorized everything as an attachment. She asked us to let go of benti [physical body] as well as the sentimentalities towards Master and Dafa and to ultimately revert to our former "normal" status, as if we had never cultivated. Substantially, she asked practitioners to stop studying and practicing Falun Dafa and to "enlighten" by choosing a road along an evil path. Her purpose for infiltrating the camp is to ask the practitioners to eventually give up Truthfulness, Benevolence and Forbearance. She confused many Dafa practitioners who were experiencing great tribulations and made them behave seriously against the xinxing [mind and nature] standards required of Dafa cultivators.
