[China] Pass the Checkpoint by Sending Forth Righteous Thoughts
In recent months, the vicious forces in x city have become more frenzied in persecuting Dafa practitioners. Consequently, disciples printing and distributing Dafa materials have been illegally arrested, and materials sources in the city have become less and less. Under these circumstances, disciples in nearby cities managed to have the Teacher's new articles and other materials downloaded from Minghui Net delivered to disciples in this city. Since May 13, in order to cut materials from other cities, strict examinations have been conducted on vehicles and people from outside the city without exception. The disciples, who brought materials that clarify the truth of Dafa with them, sent forth their righteous thoughts. Amazingly, the disciples passed the checkpoint safely with the materials undiscovered.
[China] Jiang's Political Gang Intensifies Persecution of Falun Gong After "July 1st"
According to sources from inside the China Public Security System, Jiang's political gang will carry out a new turn of persecution and suppression after "July 1st." They will carry out a strict inspection of on-line communication, make investigation on floating population, etc. Practitioners who are arrested will be sent to force labor reeducation camps right away. This order has been transmitted to police at the grass-roots level. Besides that, in order to arouse public indignation and incite the exhausted police against Falun Gong practitioners, they spread slanderous rumors that over two thousand overseas Falun Gong practitioners were preventing China from bidding to host the 2008 Summer Olympic Games in Beijing. This is only one instance of brazen in the extremes of Jiang's political gang.
[Beijing City] Beijing Investigation Office---A Vicious Institute Set Up for Persecuting Falun Dafa Practitioners
Beijing Investigation Office was established in June 2000. It is a vicious institute set up specifically for persecuting Dafa practitioners by Jiang's malicious counterparts. Since its establishment, it has been brutally persecuting Dafa disciples by contemptible means. Every Dafa disciple arrested is forced to write a "statement of guarantee"; otherwise, he or she will suffer from torture with electronic batons. In order to force some female disciples, who were illegally arrested, to reveal their addresses, the thugs stripped them and made them "stand" for long periods of time.
Since March 2001, they have carried on more frenzied torture means, for instance, forcing Dafa disciples to squat for long hours with their hands held above their heads.

4. Fu Ping, an employee of the local archives, was arrested for going to visit a friend.
5. In November 2000, eleven students from Beijing, who were studying in Singapore, went to spread Dafa in Tibet. Two of them were arrested while the whereabouts of the others are unknown.

[Zhengding County, Hebei Province] Zhen Lanrui Couple Are Arrested Illegally, Leaving a 10-Year-Old Boy Alone
On June 27, when Zhen Lanrui and his spouse came back from outside, they were illegally arrested by the indecent police waiting for them at their home. Their daughter, a middle school student, boards at school. Their 10-year-old son was left alone and unsupervised. In China, such tragic occurrences happen daily.
List of the Corrupt Officials:
Director Hu of the Public Security Bureau in Zhengding County, telephone number: 86-311-8021717

[Guangzhou, Guangdong Province] Pictorial Display Slandering Falun Dafa Incurs Disaster
In the Huadu District, the Guangzhou City 610 Office (the office in charge of persecuting Falun Gong) cooperated with the Scientific Association and some other evil institutes by holding a malicious pictorial display that slandered Falun Dafa and Dafa's founder on Huadu New Century Square in the middle of June 2001. Because Dafa practitioners sent forth righteous thoughts to wipe out the evils, the display was over quickly. Whoever persecutes Dafa will end in shameful failure.
Female Dafa practitioner Chen Liping, who is an accountant, was sent to the Guanggang 7B Ersha Island Female Labor Camp in June 2001 and she was sentenced to two years of labor reeducation. She is the first practitioner being sent to labor camp. She went to Beijing to appeal in July 1999. In July 2000, because she refused to write a guarantee letter (guaranteeing that she wouldn't practice Falun Gong anymore), she was sent to the Huadu Drug Rehabilitation Center for brainwashing classes. She was released after over 10 days, however her work unit dismissed her illegally. She was arrested again in November 2001 when she distributed some truth-clarifying literature. After being detained in the Huadu Detention Center for half a month she was taken to the Huadu Drug Rehabilitation Center where she suffered persecution until this June. Because she again refused to write a guarantee letter in the brainwashing class held from March to June, she was sentenced to two years of labor reeducation this June and was sent to the Ersha Island Labor Camp. It is said that the police there desperately torture practitioners who refuse to be transformed. We appeal to all kind-hearted people: Pay attention to the safety of all practitioners in the Ersha Island Labor Camp and help them.
Male Dafa practitioner Qiao Guangxin is the deputy director of the Huadu Disabled People's Association. On his way to Beijing he was arrested. He was taken to the Huadu Drug Rehabilitation Center to attend a brainwashing classes. Later he was released on bail by his family. This March he was again deceived into going to the Huadu Drug Rehabilitation Center's brainwashing class. He is very steadfast and because of his refusal to write a guarantee letter he is still in detention.
Female Dafa practitioner Wang Xia was arrested in November 2000. After being detained in the Huadu Detention Center for half a month she was transferred to the Huadu Drug Rehabilitation Center. Later she was released on bail by her family. This March she was again deceived into attending the Huadu Drug Rehabilitation Center's brainwashing class. Because she refused to write guarantee letters she is still in detention.
Just because Falun Dafa practitioners pursue the truth of the universe, namely Truth, Benevolence, and Forbearance, they suffer large-scale persecution and could be tortured to death at any time. We hope the international community pays attention to these events and gives help to these people.
[Beijing] A Captain from the Tuanhe Labor Camp Adopts Vile Means to Persecute Falun Dafa Practitioners
Liu Jingbiao is the captain from a directly subordinate team of guards at the Beijing Tuanhe Labor Camp. He has been a pioneer in persecuting Falun Dafa practitioners since July 20, 1999 (His crimes were published on Minghui's "News from China," on July 27, 2000). Recently he and Zhuang Xuhong, the deputy chief of the Tuanhe Labor Camp, viciously encouraged prisoners to put the picture of Master Li (the founder of Falun Gong) on the penis of practitioner Gong Chengxi and put another one in his shoes. Also under their encouragement, the prisoners ripped out practitioners' pubic hairs and used them to harass Dafa practitioners. This behavior seriously humiliated Falun Dafa and the Teacher, and also mentally wrecked Dafa practitioners.
In addition, Zhuang Xuhong, the deputy chief of the Beijing Tuanhe Labor Camp who is in charge of persecuting Falun Gong, was arrested for having relations with a prostitute while in Beijing's Daxing District.

[Tangshan, Hebei Province] The Fengrun County Detention Center Persecutes Dafa Practitioners
The Hebei Tangshan Fengrun County Detention Center has been detaining practitioners since 1999. The County Public Security Bureau handcuffed Dafa practitioners from behind and lashed them with whips. Some practitioners were whipped to the point where they couldn't walk; their skin was torn and their bodies were bleeding. Police also searched practitioner's clothes, taking away all their money and personal possessions. The police then exerted pressure on practitioners' families. Finally police sent practitioners to the Fengrun Detention Center. In the detention center over 20 practitioners lived in one cell and they were given only three steamed buns a day. The ward said that matters were fine as long as the practitioners didn't starve to death. However, the detention center required every practitioners to submit 20 Yuan (about US$ 2.50) each day as an accommodation fee.
The detention center separated the Dafa practitioners into teams of three and mixed them with prisoners. The wards asked prisoners to brutally beat Dafa practitioners. They didn't even take mercy on an elderly practitioner who was over 60 years old. They hung him up day in and day out until he lost consciousness. Some prisoners seized practitioners and threw them against the edge of a bed.
One night, Dafa practitioners studied the Fa together. Yu, a director of the jail led five male wards and seven or eight male prisoners as they broke into a female practitioner's cell with rubber batons. These thugs cursed and beat practitioners. Some practitioners were beaten to the point where they couldn't raise their arms, and some practitioner's bones were broken and others were bleeding. A practitioner named Wang was beaten so severely that only until recently has she been able to put on clothes by herself. The detention center asked prisoners to force practitioners to write guarantee letters. If a practitioner wrote it, the prisoner's sentence could be cut in half, reducing it to one year. This detention center also extorted money from each practitioner.
[Tangshan, Hebei Province] Tangshan Police Illegally Detain Practitioners Lu Xuejun and Liu Xinmei
Police from the Xin District Public Security Bureau of Tangshan City, Hebei Province doubted that Falun Gong practitioners, the couple Lu Xuejun and Liu Xinmei had distributed Falun Gong flyers. On June 28, 2001, being led by Zhang Liansheng the director of the Public Security Bureau, police went to Lu and Liu's home to arrest them. However, practitioners resisted arrest. Police attempted to break into their home, causing people to come and see what was going on.
Police had to watch outside the building for one whole day. Later on Lu Xuejun and Liu Xinmei went out for some business and were forced into a police car on the way. Police detained them in Xin District Detention Center of Tangshan City. So far, they have been detained for 6 days. Their 8 year-old daughter was left home alone with no one to take care of her.
All kind-hearted people, please pay attention to this matter and stop the persecution of Falun Gong practitioners by Chinese government.

[China] "I am telling you a method that can keep you forever young: practicing Falun Gong."
One day when I was walking down the street, a young lady stopped me and showed me an advertisement about a beauty parlor. I thought that's a good opportunity to tell her the truth about the Falun Gong.
I asked her, "What do you think about my skin? "
She replied, "It's very good."
"Guess how old I am."
"I can't tell. You look very young."
"I am over 30!"
"Really!" She was surprised.
"There is a method that can keep you forever young: practicing Falun Gong. It's a cultivation method of mind and body."
