1. [Beijing] Four Year-Old Practitioner Detained in Beijing's Shunyi District Detention Center
During the October 1 holiday period, I went to Tiananmen Square in Beijing to validate Dafa. Local authorities illegally detained me at the Shunyi District Detention Center in Beijing. I witnessed that a 4 year-old boy was being detained in the female section. I was told that the boy was with his mother, who is also a practitioner detained there. The young boy has been practicing Falun Gong with his mother for two years.
2. [Jiamusi City, Heilongjiang Province] Zuo Xiuyun, A Survivor of The Tragedy on June 20, 2001 (In Which Several Female Practitioners Were Tortured to Death) is Further Persecuted
Practitioner Zuo Xiuyun, female, 46, is a doctor who lives in Songjiang Town, Jiamusi City, Heilongjiang province. She is a survivor of the tragedy that occurred June 20, 2001 in Wanjia Labor Camp. The persecutors in Wanjia Labor Camp illegally detained her for 8 months past the scheduled end of her sentence. On Oct 30, 2001 she was released, however the police from Songjiang Town Police Station arrested her again at her home on November 4.
During her over one year detention in Wanjia Labor Camp, Zuo Xiuyun endured inhuman torture. She survived the tragedy on June 20, 2001, yet the officials would not let her go. Will they really not stop until she dies?
Home phone of Zuo Xiuyun: 86- 454-8843845
3. [Daqing City, Heilongjiang Province] Dafa Practitioner Xu Xiangdong (from Daqing City, Heilongjiang Province) Defends Himself in Court
On Nov 14, 2001, Saertu District Court in Daqing City held an illegal trial for practitioner Xu Xiangdong (male). In court, Xu Xiangdong used his reason, wisdom and compassion to tell all the people present that Falun Dafa is righteous and that his downloading truth-clarifying literature from the internet and sending them to people did not violate the law and the constitution. He defended his innocence with dignity. The judges accepted his defence and then announced the end of the trial and told the audience to await their final judgment. Outside the courtroom, practitioners from Daqing City took the opportunity to clarify the truth of Falun Dafa to officials of the court and to law enforcement personnel, offering them salvation. The practitioners also sent forth righteous thoughts to eliminate all the evil in the three realms and the old forces that persecute Xu Xiangdong. The practitioners' righteous thoughts as a group made a great impact, manifesting the great power of Dafa practitioners in Daqing City as a whole.
Practitioner Xu Xiangdong had been arrested on January 2001 for making truth-clarifying literature. Since March he has been detained in Daqing City Detention Center. His wife Cui Xiaojuan was a lecturer at Daqing Police School. In December 1999, his wife Cui died in order to safeguard Dafa.
4. [China] Jiang Zemin's Regime Illegally Monitor Internet Users with "Trojan Horse" Programs
"Trojan Horses" are hackers' programs. Hackers use Trojan Horse programs to steal internet users' personal information (including passwords) and even to completely control computers remotely over the internet. It is inappropriate for anyone to use a "Trojan Horse" to damage, monitor or steal information from internet users. It is even worse for an Internet Service Provider (ISP) to use one against its own customers. Unfortunately, this kind of thing is happening in China.
When I was online (in China), I often detected terminal scans from the ISP (looking for security loopholes in my computer, preparing for attacks). When I made frequent visits to Minghui.net (Chinese version of Clearwisdom.net) I would receive scans from specific terminals, including computer instructions to run "Trojan Horse" programs. Two common ones are "NetMonitor" and "TransmissionScout". "NetMonitor" is primarily used to steal personal information like passwords, while "TransmissionScout" has the power to completely control the user's computer. Jiang Zemin's political regime stops at no evil to do harm. We will send forth righteous thoughts to eliminate the evil and stop the persecution at it's roots.
5. [Heilongjiang Province] Female Practitioners Illegally Detained in Group 12 of Wanjia Labor Camp Were Viciously Tortured
Female practitioners in the No. 12 Group at Wanjia Labor Camp (Headman: Zhang Bo) are currently receiving brutal torture. 5 or 6 of them are still detained in confinement cells in the No. 9 Group. The practitioners in the confinement were not allowed to have use of any blankets during the daytime. As a result, some of them felt so cold that they curled up into a ball to stay warm. If they practiced the Falun Gong exercises, the perpetrators would force them onto the "Iron Chair" (a severe torture) for as long as 15 hours. On the "Iron Chair", practitioners' hands are tied to the back of the chair. The perpetrators would not untie them even if the practitioners wanted to use the restroom. Drinking water was not provided while they were tortured. Practitioners were allowed to use only the bucket inside their cells in the morning as a toilet. The guards in Wanjia Labor Camp also seriously violated the rules while torturing the female practitioners. They used male guard Li Min and male inmate Lin Gang. These two wicked people sexually abused female practitioners. The humiliation and torture that the practitioners received are beyond words. Female guard Jia Cuiyan was the most vicious among the guards watching the confinement cells. Wicked guard Zhou beat and cursed practitioner Li Lan, who went on hunger strike to protest the persecution. Some guards wanted to write the reason for Li Lan's hunger strike on the daily report, yet other guards were against the idea. "Our supervisor said not to write everything in the daily reports." They were also afraid of their crimes being exposed and that they would then face prosecution.
6. [Guizhou Province] Site Making Truth-Clarifying Materials Is Destroyed
A Falun Dafa materials-production site in Guizhou Province was destroyed. Computers and photocopiers at the site were confiscated. The loss was great and the police are making many arrests. Since the information on the computer was not deleted, the names of all of the practitioners who have posted Solemn Declarations were discovered by the authorities. We remind those practitioners to be careful for their personal safety.

Latest news concerning Zhao Hong (Dafa practitioner Zhao Xin's younger sister): On November 10, 2001, a group of people from the Public Security Bureau, Police Station, her work unit, and her relatives went to Beijing to escort her back from Beijing. While having a dinner in a restaurant, Zhao Hong saw her opportunity to escape, took it and has been homeless ever since.
2. Around 2:00 PM on November 9, 2001, when Dafa practitioners Lanmin and Jingzhi (66 years old) (both names are alias for safety reasons), were forced by two old men to a local police station. They remained tranquil in the face of being overpowered. Around 8:30 that same evening, a group involved in a personal dispute came in and the police turned to them. Lanmin was alone while Jingzhi went to a restroom, so Lanmin left the police station. Just at the time, a taxi came, so Lanmin got in and told the driver: "I am a good person, some bad guys are chasing me, please get out of here as soon as possible." The driver asked: "Are you a Falun Gong practitioner?" She said:"Yes"; "Me too", the driver said, so they happily agreed, "This is an incredible arrangement by our teacher." Knowing that she had nowhere to go, the driver took her to a fellow practitioner's home. Realizing that Lanmin had escaped, police searched her home but found nothing. Seeing that Jingzhi was a senior, police released her.

9. [Shouguang City, Shandong Province] Atrocities committed by Ruffians to Dafa Practitioners
Zhou Xiuling, female, 41 years old, from Zhoujia Village, Jitai Township, Shouguang City. Learned Dafa since April 1996.
On September 8, 2000 by lunar calendar, Zhou Xiuling and a fellow Dafa practitioner Li Fenglan went to Beijing by bicycle to validate Dafa. She was arrested and detained for three days in the driver's dormitory of Jitai Township government before being sent back home. She was tortured by more than ten ruffians for over an hour. The authorities removed Ms Zhou Xiuling's shoes and she was forced to lie or sit with her legs and arms out-stretched. Those ruffians used rubber or bamboo bars to hit her forcefully on her hands, feet, and legs, especially around her ankles which is a sensitive place. They kicked her with their leather boots and slapped her in the face; sometimes they trampled on her feet and legs. The ruffians also used electric batons to shock her head, neck, and her arms.
The people used so much strength to torture her that they got tired very quickly, and they were streaming with sweat. So they took turns in torturing her continuously. Then they tied her to a tree in the courtyard and connected electricity to her two thumbs, and shocked her with a manual generator (run by bicycle). The faster they pedaled, the stronger the current. They drove it fast for two cycles and slow for one cycle. (It is said that the slow cycle was even harder to bear) The spectators said: The toughest criminals will yield once shocked in this way... After the electrical shocks, they discovered that she was dying, so they poured cold water on her head to attempt to revive her.
She was beaten and shocked until she was almost unconscious. Her legs were completely covered in bruises and swollen to a horrifying size. Days later, she still could not move even supported by two people. Exactly one year has passed and a scar around eight by two centimeters remains visible on her ankle, shocking the viewers.

16. [Xinji City, Hebei Province] Assistant Deputy Secretary of Politics and Law Department States, Falun Gong Can Fill Fines
The chairman of Xinji Police Department reported to the assistant deputy secretary of Politics and Law Department Liu Cunzhu that the police department could not fulfill the quota of social order violations. Liu shamelessly told him, "Just get Falun Gong to pay the fines, since they have no where to appeal. Even if they do appeal, the city can just block them." A robber indeed became a government official!
17. [Beijing] Huairou Detention Center Cruelly Tortures the Illegally Detained Falun Dafa Practitioners
Huairou Detention Center detained at least 24 Falun Dafa Practitioners who were illegally arrested on November 26, 2000. Without prior consultation, these practitioners went on a hunger strike without water to protest the persecution. They suffered all kinds of torture. We do not know their current situation. They separated the Falun Dafa practitioners or locked them up with other criminals so that it was very difficult for practitioners to see each other. They incited inmates to have conflicts with practitioners. A guard announced, "The three (practitioners) that were carried out (died)."
