[China] Keep on Doing Well in Clarifying the Truth to the Public
Recently, a practitioner was illegally taken to the vice squad. The police searched him and found Dafa truth-clarifying materials. No matter how the police interrogated him, the practitioner did not cooperate with them. The police told him, "Did you know the policy issued from the upper government states to sentence those who distribute or post truth-clarifying Dafa materials to jail or a labor camp? If the material is just for your own reading, we won't detain you."
From this we could see that the vicious forces are extremely fearful of practitioners clarifying the truth to the public. What they fear most is that their crime of persecuting kind-hearted practitioners will be exposed. Therefore, no matter how difficult, how arduous it is and how much interference we encounter, we should go all out to keep clarifying the truth and firmly step forward in our cultivation. Expose the evil to the public and eliminate them with Dafa practitioners' indestructible and righteous thoughts.

Recently, Shijiazhuang City's "6-10 Office" (an agency specifically created to persecute Falun Gong, with absolute power over each level of administration in the Party and all other political and judiciary systems) called an emergency meeting to plot further persecution of Falun Gong practitioners. Mayor Li Hongying attended the meeting. The highest official and police department director from every county and district had to be present. They decided to poll all Falun Gong practitioners and force them to declare their opinions. Those who firmly believe in Dafa should be directly sent to a labor camp. They also issued a quota-standard for every city police department and sub-division and ordered them to reach or exceed the requirements.
The police and community offices have begun preparations for such crimes.
[Chongqing City, Sichuan Province] Dafa Radio Program Resounds above Chongqing City.
At 5:30am on October 5th, 2001, over a dozen of speakers simultaneously broadcast the truth of Falun Dafa in various residential areas, accompanied by "Pudu" music. "Falun Dafa Radio Program" provided [an opportunity for] salvation to the public and enlightened kind-hearted people to discern good from evil. A speaker, located in crowded downtown area, broadcast over three hours. The evil could not find it. A practitioner put a cover on it with supernormal ability and sent forth righteous thoughts to not let the evil find it. The radio program seemed like a broadcast from the heavens.

[Jinzhou City, Liaoning Province] "The Time has Already Come to Receive Retribution in This Life Time. Why are You Still Doing This?"
A practitioner who lived in a village of Jinzhou City received a phone call to go to a fellow practitioner's home in the same village. When she arrived, the fellow practitioner said she didn't call her. Another fellow practitianer was also at her home. Shortly afterwards, the village security director and other people arrived at her home. They claimed that the practitioners were holding an illegal assembly and forcibly took them away. The phone call was actually a trap set by the wicked thugs.
Later on, in order to get credit for the deed, somebody told me that the village security director and the "head" of the village submitted a report about the arrest to higher authorities. Unexpectedly, instead of being complimented, the higher authorities blamed them, "Don't you know what time this is now? It's already time to receive retribution in this lifetime! How come you are still doing this? Let them practice at home. You can handle this by yourselves. Why report to higher authorities?"
