[Xinji City, Hebei Province] Liu Jiliang, the Vice Mayor of Xinji City, Ordered Vicious Policemen to Persecute Dafa Practitioners On December 27 and 28, before the Spring Festival, at least 35 practitioners were detained illegally in Xinji City Detention Center. In the counties affiliated with Xinji City, more than 130 practitioners were illegally detained. Liu Jiliang, the vice Mayor of Xinji City in charge of Politics and Law Department, told police and procurators in a meeting, "We should be more tough on Falun Gong practitioners and use all means to accomplish that." Li Shuangzao, the director of the Public Security Department said, "We have actually been violating the law this whole time when dealing with the practitioners." Liu Jiliang said, "No problem. The orders for executing the law exclude Falun Gong." There were slogans slandering Falun Dafa posted on every street intersection and bus stop. Even the train ticket booking clerk exhorted those who bought train tickets to Beijing to curse Dafa or Master. The tickets could not be sold to those who refused to do so. There was a slogan, which read "Falun Dafa Is Good," on the wall of the Detention Center. The vicious policemen forced practitioners to wipe it off. After the Falun Dafa practitioners refused, the "authorities" became furious and beat them. Yang Hongli, a vicious guard, shouted: "Beat them. I will be responsible for beating them to death." Another vicious policeman named Zhen shouted: "Strip off their clothes! We don't care that they are women." Shi Jianmin from Jianshe Street Police Station took advantage of the situation and extorted money from practitioners. From January 27 to 30, he made the families of practitioners hand over 3,000 Yuan in return for a "statement of release" to let practitioners go. There was neither any receipt for the extorted money, nor was any note issued documenting this occurrence. Some residents reported this case to a leader of this city. The leader affected ignorance and responded: "Who told them to fine you?" Then there was no further response from him; he did nothing to help the practitioners. In a hotel in Shijiazhuang City, the head policeman, a vicious individual, kicked practitioner Wang Yongjun so violently that his bones were fractured. On seeing that, other twisted, inhuman policemen expressed delight at the practitioner's abuse and pain. A partial list of practitioners persecuted during the Spring Festival: The couple of Chen Xijian, couple of Chen Dianliang, couple of Cui Cheng, couple of Wang Jianchao, the mother Zhao Yanyan and her daughter, senior Xing from Fan Village, Mi Lijun, Zhang Zhizhuang, Li Kuncai, Li Zhiyong, Sun Yukun, Wang Cha, Fu Dongxiao, Fu Yunxia, Wu Huaxiang, Li Xinran, He Zhi, Mu Xinduo, (?)

[Southern China] Practitioners Distributed A Great Amount of Flyers Revealing the Truth About the Tiananmen Self-Immolation Incident Recently, practitioners in Southern China distributed a lot of articles downloaded from Minghui Net to disclose the truth of the Tiananmen Square Self-Immolation incident, which was faked by the vicious forces. Many people got to know the truth. They began to criticize the evil forces for their action. A lot of representatives of the People's Congress and People's Political Consultative Conference received Dafa flyers at various places while in session. [China] Exposing the Government-Created Hoax of "Self-Immolation" During a Meeting Entitled "Exposing and Criticizing Falun Gong" A work unit called a meeting entitled "Exposing and Criticizing Falun Gong." After a few discussions, they turned their focus on the suspicious points of the "Self-Immolation" incident reported by the state-run media. Someone in the meeting said he knew a practitioner and he could get some information from him. After a while, he returned with a copy of a pamphlet pointing out ten questionable points regarding the "Self-Immolation." They passed the material around. From then on, the meeting continued to discuss the loopholes in media reports. [Heilongjiang Province] Solemn Statements Shocked the Evil's Ideology The evil forces headed by Jiang Zemin thought they could demolish practitioner's cultivation thoroughly by forcing them to write "guarantee statements". The true contents of many "Solemn Statements," some of which were published on Minghui Net, shocked and frightened the evil's mindset. Because they were frightened and could not maintain their "facts" any longer, they intensified the persecution of Falun Dafa practitioners. Nowadays, the situation is very tough for the practitioners in Heilongjiang Province. Practitioners have realized the seriousness of cultivation. They would not tarnish what they have already attained. They announced that all the so-called "guarantee statements" "repentance statement" and "rupture statement" they had previously written against Dafa under severe duress were INVALID. All these statements ruffled the Public Security Department. All over the place, the police started to detain practitioners. They harassed and put pressure on the work units and relatives of those practitioners who could not be found. In addition to detention, the police unscrupulously fined the practitioners tens of thousands of Yuan to break them economically. [Shijiazhuang City, Hebei Province] Several Dozen Practitioners were Detained Illegally at Qiaodong Police Station in Shijiazhuang City Dozens of practitioners were detained illegally at the Qiaodong Police Station in Shijiazhuang City. Their situation was not disclosed to public. The practitioners were not allowed to receive visitors. Police claimed they would break practitioners emotionally this way. The phone number of the police station: 011-86-0311-6033009. [Northern China] Improve Collectively, Ascend Collectively. In northern China, a group of young practitioners overcame many tribulations and accumulated abundant experiences while clarifying the truth and improved in accordance with Dafa. Some practitioners went to appeal in Beijing several times and returned with great dignity. Their Xinxing [Mind or heart nature] reached the realm of unselfishness. Now a lot of practitioners spread the truth of Dafa and disclose the evil with a variety of methods. In the process, they were enlightened to improve collectively and ascend collectively. Since the Spring Festival, they have held more than 20 experience-sharing meetings. At least 20 to 30 practitioners attended each meeting. Sometimes, there were 50 to 60 practitioners. Practitioners attending the meeting came from different cities, counties and villages. After every meeting, there were more practitioners who vowed to give up the human mentalities and stepped forward to validate Dafa. Though some practitioners still had human mentalities, they all made progresses in cultivation after the meetings. They all enlightened that Teacher has been enduring a lot for us. He is still waiting for practitioners to step out of their human mentalities. Practitioners who are enduring torture are also constantly suffering immense tribulations for the collective ascent of all practitioners. [Hebei Province] Practitioner Su Min was Kidnapped Su Min had been insisting on cultivation practice and validating Dafa since she left Hebei Normal University. She found a position as cashier in Beiguo Market before the Chinese New Year. However, she disappeared after the New Year. There was a note left in her room, which read: "I am arrested, please help me to resign this job." The landlord said there was a white car parked outside the building on January 31. There were two guys sitting inside the car. One of them took her (Su Min) away. There was no clue who these guys were or where they took Su Min. We found an antithetical couplet near the building she lived in. The high line read: "Who are determined to make appeals to government level by level;" the low line read: "One will be killed if one appeals to the higher level of government." The horizontal scroll read: " Where is the justice?" It was recognized as Su Min's handwriting. We will continue to pay close attention to the incident of Su Min's disappearance. This is another one of those incidents that give testimony to the so-called "best time for human rights in China." [A comment made by Jiang Zemin's enforcers]. [Jiamusi City, Heilongjiang Province] Wu Zhe and Yuan Hailong Persecuted and Unlawfully Sent Practitioners to Labor Re-education Camps From December 1, 2000 to January 21, 2001, the Jiamusi City Detention Center sent about 100 Dafa practitioners in five groups to labor camps. The police did not inform most of those practitioners' families. This action has severely violated the law. Practitioner Wang Guilan from Wangjiang area was sent to labor camp although her family had already handed in more than 10,000 Yuan for the expenses of escorting her back from Beijing. Practitioner Sun Dacheng has been sentenced to a stay in a labor camp for appealing in Beijing. Now his two-year-old child is left home alone since his wife has already been detained for two months and is still in custody. Practitioner Zhang Shufen was followed by the police when she visited another practitioner. They found some Dafa materials she was carrying and detained her illegally. Later she was sent to the labor camp. Her husband was also illegally sentenced to labor camp in July 2000. Practitioner Zou Jie was illegally detained and then sent to labor camp simply for having a phone conversation with a fellow practitioner. Practitioners Qi Jingpu and Zhang Lihua were sent to labor camp for appealing in Beijing. Certain evil people and their crimes:1. Wu Zhe Wu Zhe is the head of the Falun Gong Special Case Group in Jiamusi City Police Department. He not only personally beat Dafa practitioner but also ordered policemen under him to assault and torture them. They put bullets between the practitioner's fingers and then clasped their figures with all their strength. They handcuffed the practitioners with their arms behind their backs and then inserted a wrench between the handcuffs. The practitioners were trussed to a chair with the wrench so they could not stand straight and had to awkwardly bend their waist. Wu Zhe also ordered policemen to put a burning cigarette under practitioner's noses to force them to inhale the fumes. Some practitioners were sweating all over their bodies from the fumes and lost consciousness several times. Wu Zhe's office phone: 011-86-454-8246655 Wu Zhe's home phone: 011-86-454-8249739 Wu Zhe's wife, Wang Ping, the vice general secretary of the [name omitted] Youth League. Her office phone: 011-86-454-82262672. Yuan Hailong Home phone: 011-86-454-8443156 Yuan Hailong is a policeman in the Jiamusi City Detention Center. He always beats and otherwise abuses Dafa practitioners. Once, when he found a practitioner reading the Dafa book, he furiously kicked this female practitioner on her head and face for about ten minutes. They locked up a 60-year-old practitioner with heaviest handcuffs and shackles that were only used on criminals who had been sentenced to death. The old man was put into the cell of hard-core criminals. Once, several criminals stripped him and poured cold water on his body. At that moment, Yuan Hailong had arrived to interrogate him. Simply because the old practitioner was shaking and moving slowly, he actually pulled the practitioner across the long corridor by the shackles, with the practitioner's head bumping along on the ground. Even the criminals condemned the fact that this policeman had lost all human nature. [Zhuhai City, Guangdong Province] Evil Policemen Forcibly Broke Into Female Dormitory At 1 AM At one o'clock in the early morning on January 18, 2001, seven evil policemen broke into a women's dormitory, claiming they were there to check IDs. Actually they were to search for Dafa materials that were suspected of being there. Many female employees did not have a chance to put on their clothes when the policemen broke in. They were shaking and frightened by the sudden harassment. These evil policemen spoke dirty language and displayed a ferocious appearance. They searched every bed. Eventually they found nothing and left. Afterwards, the female employees felt they had experienced a nightmare. They were bitterly disappointed by the behavior of the "People's Police." [Zhuhai City, Guangdong Province] Dafa Practitioner Lin Yongxu was Sentenced to Two Years in Prison Zhuhai City Dafa practitioner Lin Yongxu was arrested after his article "Refute the Rumors, Rectify What You See and Hear" was posted on the intranet of the company for which he worked, Zhuhai Geli Corporation. He was sentenced to 2 years in prison. He firmly safeguarded the truth in prison. The "People's Police" searched around the city during the Spring Festival. More than ten practitioners had been arrested. Plain-cloth policemen hide in parks, shopping malls and on the streets to monitor and follow the people passing by. [Nanchang City, Jiangxi Province] Situation of Some Practitioners of Jiangxi Isuzu Corporation Chen Lufang was arrested in the factory by the police. His clothes were torn apart by the policemen when he was arrested, which upset his fellow workers. Xie Kaiqing was taken away forcibly. Yang Yaqin was taken away from home by plain-clothes policemen from Qingyunpu Police Substation. Tan Jihong was taken away from home by plain-clothes policemen. Mr. Ye was taken away from a tailor shop by plain-clothes policemen. Some telephone numbers of the people in charge: Party General Secretary of Jiangxi Isuzu: Wu Yong, 011-86-791-5232888 x 6205 Principal of Jiangxi Isuzu Middle School: 011-86-791-5232888 x 6328 Jiangxi Isuzu Security Department: 011-86-791-5232888 x 7772. [Qiqihaer City, Heilongjiang Province] Shuanghe Labor Camp in Qiqihaer City and Haerbin Drug Abstention Center Used the "Transformed Persons" to Demolish Dafa Shuanghe Labor Camp in Qiqihaer City and Haerbin Drug Abstention Center used a few "transformed people" to entice the practitioners in custody. This led those practitioners with attachments of self-complacence, zealotry as well as show-off mentality to get demonic interference from their own minds. There were a few practitioners who were still working to get rid of attachments who were used by the evil and unfortunately enlightened along an evil path. Here, we would like to remind Dafa practitioners to take the Fa as Master, believe in Master steadfastly, and keep righteous minds and righteous beliefs. Let's not give audience to the vicious forces. [Shenyang City, Liaoning Province] Be Cautious of Destruction from "Transformed People" Around the Spring Festival of 2001, Masanjia Labor Re-education Camp released some so-called "transformed people" successively. These people went around and tried to "transform" Falun Gong practitioners. Meanwhile, they caused some interference to local Dafa activities. We hope fellow practitioners take Fa as Master, eliminate these interferences and do not give them any audience. We should not be influenced by them or encourage their evil behavior. Some practitioners being held in Masanjia Labor Re-education Camp were enlightening along an evil path under the evil's abduction. Many practitioners being released realized their mistakes and became clear-headed. We hope these practitioners could double their efforts to make amends, reveal the evilness of Masanjia Labor Re-education Camp and expose the persecution details to the public. [Beijing] Beijing Policemen Disguised As Taxi Drivers I took a taxi at Beijing Dongzhimen area at 6:50 PM on January 30. As soon as the taxi began to move, the "driver" played the tape of the Tiananmen "Self-Immolation" news report 3 times consecutively and asked me several questions, such as what I thought of it, where I came from, and where I lived in Beijing, etc. I got off the taxi at 6:58 PM. I've just read a piece of news from the Minghui Net entitled "Policemen Disguised as Taxi Drivers." I realized I just experienced it myself. Dafa practitioners in Beijing, please be aware of this and exercise caution!
