[Minghui Net] Around 4 PM on June 14, 2001, a severe sand storm assaulted Inner Mongolia's capital of Hohhot City. The weather broadcast said the gale-force storm was this year's strongest.

The sand storm hit Hohhot at 4:30 PM. Suddenly, a yellow cloud covered the whole city. According to weather records, sand storms often occur between March and May. It is unusual for a sand storm to occur in June when the weather is hot.

Since July 20, 1999, when the vicious political gang of scoundrels of Jiang Zemin's regime started to persecute Falun Gong, unusual and bizarre astronomical phenomena have occurred frequently. In Inner Mongolia alone, three sand storms blew in 6 days in March of this year.

Why do these storms seem to give special attention to Hohhot? Possibly because it stands by the side of the evil political gang of scoundrels in the Chinese government.

Since this New Year's Day, Hohhot police repeatedly raided Falun Gong practitioners' homes, confiscated all Dafa materials and arrested the practitioners.

A female practitioner was detained and abused because she went to Tiananmen Square to clarify Dafa. The police chained her feet and sent her to Hohhot Female Labor Camp, where the lead guard named Liu shocked her with an electric baton. Later, deputy leader Chang Hong ordered her to be handcuffed and hung above ground for a whole day. Even after they discovered that she was several months pregnant, the vicious police still continued to torture her.

Zhang Tao (female) is an employee of Inner Mongolia's Ping'an Insurance Company. On January 26, 2001, police officers from Dongfeng Street Police Station ransacked her home and detained her for 24 hours. She is now under house arrest in her hometown of Yikezhaomeng [a county].

Li Xudong (male, about 21 years old) was a senior student at Inner Mongolia's Forest College. He was ordered to quit school after he refused to give up Falun Gong. He also was denied job allocation by the school.

Authorities from the Inner Mongolian Security Bureau fired 32-year-old female practitioner Fan Lei for her determination in practicing Falun Gong.

Hu Yujun (female, 56 years old) is an associate professor at Inner Mongolia's Agriculture University. The police raided her home after she was found distributing Dafa materials. She is now under house arrest.

Liu Zhiguo (male, about 40 years old) was a worker of the Hohhot Edible Oil Factory. The police ransacked his home after he distributed Dafa materials. He is now being held in the local detention center.

Xiao Hong (female, 30 years old) is a physician at Inner Mongolia's Hospital; she was sentenced to 3-years in a labor camp. Her only "crime" was to appeal to the government in Beijing to stop persecuting Falun Gong.

The law of the universe will not tolerate the persecution of Falun Gong. One person's bad deed often brings about bad consequence for the whole family. If the entire town turns their back on the crime, then everyone will have to bear the consequences. Fellow human beings, wake up.
