1. Police Department Spreads Rumors about Falun Dafa Practitioners
The Police Department of Chanchun City, Jilin Province has been spreading false rumors that Falun Dafa practitioners are planning to blow up the Changchun City Mall around October 1. Consequently, the mall security has been on high alert, keeping a close eye on everyone that enters the building.
2. Practitioners' Labor Camp Sentences Extended in Show Trials
Many Falun Dafa practitioners in Chaoyanggou Labor Camp in Changchun City, Jilin Province are still being detained after serving their sentences. Those who refuse to denounce Falun Gong have to serve 20 additional days for every month in their original sentences. Those who have served the additional time are given show trials and sentenced again.
Many family members of the practitioners are not allowed to visit them in the labor camp. For those that do get a visit, the family members are not allowed to bring them food. Practitioners are forced to perform heavy, menial labor, such as carrying bricks. In addition, they have to endure the torture from the guards and the inmates.
We hereby solemnly warn the officials of Chaoyanggou Labor Camp: if you follow Jiang Zemin, "the Human Rights Scoundrel" as named by Amnesty International, you will be judged and will pay for every bad deed that you have committed.
3. Police Extort Money from Practitioners.
Li Yanfu and Li Bin, supervising officers in the Security Squad of the Police Department in Xinye, Henan Province, are notorious for persecuting Falun Dafa practitioners. They routinely use their position to extort money from practitioners' families, forcing them to pay outrageous amounts of money to secure the release of their loved ones.
4. Police Forcefully Arrest Practitioners
The policemen responsible for the Yuxin Apartment Complex in Xisanqi, Beijing, have been arresting resident Falun Dafa practitioners without cause. On the evening of June 12, 2000, they tricked nine practitioners into going to the police station for a "chat." The practitioners were then detained.
Recently, they have become more rampant, often breaking into practitioners' homes and taking them away to brainwashing classes or the detention center.
5. Nuclear Power Station Officials Persecute Practitioners
At the beginning of 2001, the party committee of Dayawan Nuclear Power Station in Guangdong Province decided to forbid Falun Gong practitioner employees from living in the housing provided by the station. The following day, they encountered the first facilities breakdown of the year.
After the self-immolation event, the Party committee at the power station followed Jiang Zemin's directions and initiated an active campaign denouncing Falun Gong. They also intensified the persecution against practitioners. Soon, two sets of assembly units broke down due to severe mechanical problems. These units had just been repaired two months ago.
The breakdown of the units put great pressure on the Guangdong power network. Still, the party committee of the nuclear power station didn't realize it. They decided to send all the practitioners at the station to a brainwashing class on June 8. On June 16, the facilities broke down again.
