[Xuchang City, Henan Province] The Sound of the Cosmos Reverberated in the Sky Above Xuchang City Detention Center
Some Dafa practitioners heard that there were more than 100 Dafa practitioners being detained in the No.3 Detention Center in Xuchang City. Those practitioners had never heard a Dafa broadcast before. So the good practitioners, without hesitation, decided to help those who had never heard the broadcast. On the night of June 2, the sound of the speaker was clearly heard above the sky of the No.3 Detention Center of Xuchang City. It repeatedly broadcast Teacher's three articles "Coercion Cannot Change People's Hearts," "Persons in Charge of the European Fa Conference and All Attendees," and "Suggestion." The sound reverberated in the sky above the whole detention center until early the next morning. This gave a heavy blow to the evil force and a great encouragement to fellow practitioners in jail. The vicious forces were very rampant and attempted to stop the practitioners on their way there, but the Dafa practitioners were determined to assertively eliminate the vicious forces. They sent forth the righteous thought, "The Fa rectifies the cosmos, the evil is completely eliminated." At last, they returned home safely that same night.
[Shandong Province] A Dafa Broadcast Resounded in the Sky Above Shandong Province's Female Detention Center
On the night on May 26, 2001, Dafa practitioners placed a loudspeaker near Shandong Province's Female Detention Center. The sound of Master's new articles "Teaching the Fa at the 2001 Canada Falun Dafa Cultivation Experience Sharing Conference," "The Disciple's Greatness," published on May 19, and a program from the Falun Dafa radio station resounded in the night sky. The guards in the detention center turned on the lights and searched outside in groups, but found nothing. The Dafa practitioners left safely.
[Hebei Province] An Experience Sharing Meeting Successfully Held Located in Hebei Province
On May 30, 2001, about 80 Dafa practitioners, in order to make progress together, from several areas in Hebei and Shandong Provinces, successfully held an experience-sharing meeting. After the meeting was over, on the bus back home, twelve practitioners from different places clarified the truth to passengers and handed out truth-clarifying literature and the information CD to them. A passenger said, "I had no idea before about Falun Gong. I would never have known that Falun Gong was so good if I had not met you." Another one asked, "Aren't you afraid of plainclothes police or somebody reporting you to the police?" Practitioners said, "We are not scared even if there are plainclothes police officers here. Everyone has his conscience. Our purpose, spending money thriftily, is to produce truth-clarifying literature. Being persecuted and leading a homeless life enables us to let more people know about the truth." Then another one said, "The world would be good if everyone behaved like you." Passengers packed all the items they had received from practitioners into their bags.
[Masanjia Labor Camp, Liaoning Province] Eye-Witness Testimony from the Masanjia Labor Camp: There are indeed Male Detention Cells
According to the head guard, the Masanjia Labor Camp is a huge area, with a 10-kilometer diameter [about 6.2 miles in diameter]. The government does not allocate any money to the Masanjia Labor Camp, except for the land warranty deed and supplying the labor force. They even grow all the rice the criminals eat. Almost all the people who visited their relatives there had seen male criminals working in the field. There must be male detention cells if there are male criminals. Jiang Zemin even attempted to deny this fact. The liars will suffer from all their wrongdoings in the end.

[China] The Experience of a Little Practitioner, Dong Bowen
My school complied with government orders and carried out the signature drive to fight against Falun Gong. I did not sign. During the night when I was sleeping, I saw Teacher sitting on a lotus flower, dressed in golden clothes, with curly hair, smiling at me. There was a Falun beside him. Teacher waved his hand and the Falun turned into a pair of hands, a broom, and a dustpan. They entered my body and cleaned the black material out of my body. The black substances turned into white substances.
[Benxi City, Liaoning Province] Using a New Scheme, the Vicious Forces in Benxi City Persecute Falun Dafa Practitioners
A new scheme is being used to persecute Dafa practitioners in the Caibei Detention Center of Benxi City, Liaoning Province. First of all, practitioners who were illegally arrested are detained for several months. The vicious policemen direct common criminals to beat up Dafa practitioners and abuse them with all possible means to force them to give up practicing Falun Gong. If the criminals cannot achieve that goal, the vicious forces in the detention center will give Dafa practitioners two options: 1.) Hand in 5,000 to 10,000 Yuan [about US$1,250 to 2,500, respectively; about US$60 is the average monthly income in China], and be released immediately; or, 2.) Those who do not have enough money will be sent to the Masanjia Labor Camp.
[Guangzhou City, Guangdong Province] The Vicious People at the "610" Office in Guangzhou City Continue to Commit Crimes
1.) Dafa practitioner Zhang Xiaoqiao from Guangzhou City was sent to the Guangzhou City Baiyun Mental Rehabilitation Hospital by "610" office [an office specializing in persecuting Falun Gong practitioners; 6.10 refers to June 10th, 1999, when this office was set up] Her work unit aided in this sinister endeavor since she refused to be "reformed" by them. She was tortured and persecuted. Now she has been on a hunger strike for the past 20 days. Her life is in danger. We call on all psychiatrists with a conscience from all over the world to admonish the accomplices of the "610" Office - the president and certain vicious medical personnel of the Guangzhou City Baiyun Mental Rehabilitation Hospital - for their conduct and intervene on behalf of this innocent person.
2.) During the Spring Festival, female practitioner Gu Wanmei from Guangzhou City's Foreign Economic and Trade Committee clarified Dafa truth to the public, and for that, was arrested and detained in the den of iniquity of Guangzhou City the Shuiyin Road Acceptance Center. As she refused to tell them her name and her work unit affiliation, she was illegally persecuted. She went on a hunger strike for 48 days. Due to the hunger strike she became so thin that her family members could not recognize her. Later, people from her work unit brought her back. But instead of releasing her, the vicious "610" office personnel and their accomplices from her work unit continued to detain her at the Hutian Hotel, despite the fact that her life was in danger. That is not all: two people from her work unit accompanied her and tried to forcibly "reform" her. When Gu Wanmei once again refused them sternly, the vicious officers from "610" sentenced her to two years forced labor. Now she has been sent to the Chatou Female Labor Camp. In addition, her work unit illegally sent two other practitioners who are resolute in cultivating Dafa to "reform class" [a class set up to brainwash Falun Dafa practitioners away from Falun Dafa and to bend toward Jiang Zemin's purposes].
