[Shijiazhuang City, Hebei Province] Dafa Disciple Liu Shuqin's Life is in Great Peril after 26 Days on a Hunger Strike
From November 3 to 8, 2001, Jiang Zemin was in Shijiazhuang City. His arrival immediately brought tension, turbulence, and disturbance to the people there. The police in the city arrested a large number of the migrant population indiscriminately. They also imposed a curfew on the populace, revealing Jiang's need to maintain strict control.
Dafa disciples in Shijiazhuang City responded to the visit by putting up many Dafa banners along the main streets, on the overpasses and on residential buildings. Some banners attached to balloons flew over those streets that had already been cordoned off. The police were so afraid of the impact of these balloons that they shot at them to bring them down. The glittering Dafa banners greatly shocked the evil. They reacted in anger against Dafa disciples.
In the early morning on November 5, Dafa disciple Liu Shuqin disappeared suddenly. It was later learned that the police captured her and illegally detained her at the No.2 Section of the Sizhong Road Police Station, Qiaodong Branch of the Shijiazhuang Public Security Bureau. Liu Shuqin faced the detention with a fortitude that commanded admiration and respect. She refused to report her name or to cooperate with any orders, instructions, or requirements. She has been on a hunger and water strike ever since. It hasd been 26 days, and her life is in great danger. However, the police still won't release her, but continue to torture her weak body and force-feed her with salt water.
People of goodwill: Please support justice!

[Tangyuan County, Helongjiang Province] Persecution Suffered by Dafa Disciples
Appealing to higher authorities for help is a basic right bestowed by China's Constitution on every one of its citizens. However, when citizens who practice Falun Gong appeal to higher authorities, they are detained, sentenced to forced labor camps, or penalized with an exorbitant fine simply because they tell the truth. In Tangyuan County, over 50 to 60 people have been unlawfully detained and over 20 have been sentenced to a forced labor camps. The extorted "fines" or, as it is sometimes called, "bail money," imposed on Dafa disciples has amounted to nearly 200,000 Yuan. Not one Yuan of this money has ever been returned, but has been withheld or spent extravagantly by the corrupt police.
Dafa disciple Wang Yunfei has been detained twice, for as long as two months, for firmly cultivating Falun Gong. During detention, his life was in great danger because he went on a hunger strike to protest against the unlawful detention. His family members sought for help from all of their relatives to bail him out. Every bit of his savings was extorted from him for this purpose. Not long after he was released and before he fully recovered, he was arrested and sent to forced labor camp again for fear that he would appeal again. During this time, his wife gave birth to a child. With no income, she has to rely on her aged parents for support. When Wang Yunfei was released, he chose not to go home in order to evade persecution. He cannot even have the chance to have a look at his newborn child.
Dafa disciple Luo Shuzheng, almost 60 years old, has been detained four times and sent to forced labor camp once for firmly cultivating Falun Dafa. Her retirement pay was stopped; instead she was given 60 Yuan a month for her living expenses. Due to her persistence in seeking justice, she is being unlawfully detained. She suffered from many illnesses in the past, but has been very healthy since she started practicing Falun Dafa.
Dafa disciple Li Yazhi is an English teacher from the No.2 High School in Tangyuan County. She is honest, kind, and diligent. However, she was unlawfully detained for over 40 days simply because she went to Beijing to appeal to the government to tell them that Falun Gong is good. During the detention, she was severely and harshly brainwashed. She was discharged from her teaching position as well. It has been two years, and yet her job hasn't been returned to her, nor has she been given any money for living expenses.

On September 25, 2001, Jiangjin female disciples Li Jiming, Xie Yulin, Wen Qinghua, Kuang Yurong and Kang Yi were released after "completion of a term of imprisonment." Dafa disciples Kuang Yurong, Kang Yi and Wen Qinghua each had an illegally "extended term of imprisonment." Kang Yi's term had been "extended for one year of imprisonment."

[Chia] Grandma Benefits from Family Members' Practice of Falun Gong
My grandma is 80 years old. She has suffered a lot since her childhood in the countryside and has many children. She has also been afflicted with many diseases since she was young. After having grown old, she began staying with her children. She lived with my uncle for several months and has lived with us for several months. Wherever she goes, she brings medicine with her. She takes so many kinds of medicine, that it is as if the medicine is her food.
Since our whole family started to practice Falun Dafa, this is what has happened: When grandma lives in my home, she does not need to take medicine and becomes healthier and healthier. Sometimes she practices exercises with my mom. Sometimes she listens to my mom reading Dafa books and is in a good mood, her white hair even turned black at the roots.
Because she will miss her son if she does not see him for a long time, she wants to stay with him after a while. But when my grandma goes to my uncle's home, she will start to take medicine again because my uncle does not believe in Dafa. Neither is he pleased with us practicing Falun Dafa. Various discomforts then return to my grandma Since the 7.20 incident [when Falun Dafa was banned by the Jiang Zemin Regime], police officers frequently come to our home and ask whether my grandma practices, claiming that if she practices she will be forbidden to live here, thereby causing her constant worry. The Jiang Zemin political group's persecution forces people to live a life that that leads to illness!
[Dalian City, Liaoning Province] Strengthen Righteous Thoughts and Wipe out the Final Remaining Evil
Recently the forces of evil in Dalian are rampant. They go everywhere to arrest Dafa practitioners. They send orders to each police substation and residential committee to strengthen the monitoring of Dafa practitioners and inhibit the spreading of truth-clarifying materials. They require each level of police to conduct illegal interrogations of practitioners who they regard as important. Many practitioners are brought to a police station by force, and police ask for their records and collect their fingerprints. The City Police Department even makes an arrest list for each county and area, searching for and catching any practitioners who have abandoned their homes to avoid arrest.
Dalian practitioners, please strengthen your righteous mind and send forth righteous thoughts every hour on the hour, wiping out all the evil that damages Dafa in the Dalian area, including everything and leaving out nothing. We can also eliminate evil separately, focusing on local situations. Evil has come to the final panic-stricken moment. It is also an opportunity that the Teacher gives us to eliminate evil. Fellow practitioners: Please maintain your righteous thoughts and treasure this opportunity to assist Teacher in rectifying the Fa and eliminating evil.
