1. [Changchun City, Jilin Province] Falun Dafa Practitioners Illegally Held in Heizuizi Labor Camp Hear the Voice of Falun Dafa
One early morning a few days ago, the music of Pudu echoed loudly across Heizuizi Labor Camp. What followed were broadcasts from the World Falun Dafa Radio Station: Clarifying the Truth of Falun Gong, Exposing the Brutal Acts, and Falun Gong Gaining Recognition and Being Well Received around the World. The broadcast lasted almost 20 minutes.
Practitioners inside the labor camp had long been unable to read and study Falun Dafa books or practice Falun Gong exercises. Upon hearing the voice of Falun Dafa, these practitioners further strengthened their determination and courage to prevail over the evil.
2. [Harbin City, Heilongjiang Province] Police Guards of Wanjia Labor Camp in Harbin Beat Falun Dafa Practitioners While Suffocating Them with Plastic Bags
Police guards of Wanjia Labor Camp in Harbin city, Heilongjiang Province put a plastic bag over any Falun Dafa practitioner's head just before they are about to viciously beat the practitioner. In this way they can make the practitioner feel suffocated while being beaten up, and it is easier for them to beat however they wish. The worst part is that they will leave no evidence of severe beating on the practitioner's face.
3. [Shenyang City, Liaoning Province] Tiexi Police Station Cremates Wang Ling's Body in the Early Hours of the Morning to Cover Up the Murder
Upon learning of the death of Falun Dafa practitioner Wang Ling (female, 39-year-old, proprietor) by police brutality in Tiexi Police Station in Shenyang City, Liaoning Province, her parents were in deep mourning. Around 8:30 PM on June 27, Wang Ling's parents suddenly received a phone call from Tiexi Police Station. It was said over the phone that Wang Ling's body was to be cremated that night. The police ignored the opposition from the parents of the victim, and claimed that with or without the cooperation of Wang's relatives, the cremation had to be carried out. Thus, under the direct supervision of Tiexi Police Station, Wang Ling's body was forcibly cremated in secret around 4:00 AM. Before and during the cremation, relatives were prohibited from coming close to her body, photographing was banned, and no ceremony was allowed to be held. Police even inquired among relatives and friends who showed up if any of them were Falun Dafa practitioners. Any practitioner thus found out was taken away immediately.
This is yet another criminal act of the thugs in Tiexi Police Station after having brutally beaten Falun Dafa practitioner Zong Hengjie to death.
4. [Lanzhou City, Gansu Province] More Information on Female Falun Dafa Pracitioner Liu Lanxiang from Minqin County, Gansu Province Who Was Beaten to Death by Police
Liu Lanxiang, female, was illegally thrown into the detention center on April 4; by April 10, she had been beaten to death. As soon as she came to the detention center, she started a hunger strike and firmly refused to cooperate with the evil forces. By April 6, she started doing the Falun Gong exercises, and she also shouted, "Falun Dafa is good!" Cell head Ma Xiuhua beat her severely, and then notified the team leader who put both handcuffs and shackles on her. On the third day, police ordered inmates to carry her to the yard to force-feed her salt water. One bag of salt (weighing 1 kilogram) was fed to her three times.
From sources within the prison, the cell head Ma Xiuhua, who participated in beating and force-feeding Liu Lanxiang, has already met with retribution. Ma's throat ached so much that she couldn't eat. Ma has lost so much weight that she is now out of shape, and has to go see a doctor every day. Once on her way to visit a doctor, she suddenly passed out and completely lost consciousness when walking by the place where Liu Lanxiang shouted "Falun Dafa is good!"
5. [Changchun City, Jilin Province] A Citizen of Changchun City: Truth Clarification from Falun Dafa Practitioners Has Changed My Mind
After the extraordinary efforts of Falun Dafa practitioners who time and again delivered the truth to my doorstep, I have changed my mind and have seen through the lies fabricated by CCTV (China Central Television).
Presently more and more people with a conscience feel deep sorrow about Jiang Zemin's persecution of the general Falun Gong public. Kind-hearted people are concerned about the lives and safety of tens of thousands of Falun Gong followers who have been thrown into prison knowing that they are all good people. Being humans, we have to face our consciences, and acknowledge that any citizen has the right of freedom of speech. The founder of Falun Gong is especially benevolent; the fabrications and framing by Jiang and his accomplices is simply the crime of defamation.
6. [Beijing] Beijing Xinan Labor Camp Tricks and Kidnaps Falun Dafa Practitioners' Family Members Who Come to Visit
Recently, Beijing Xinan Labor Camp used a new method to persecute Falun Dafa practitioners. The labor camp wrote letters to Falun Dafa practitioners' relatives who also practice Falun Gong asking them to come and visit. Those who went to visit the practitioners were immediately detained there and subjected to brainwashing.
7. [Qingdao City, Shandong Province] The National Security Ministry of Qingdao City Illegally Arrests Falun Dafa Practitioners on A Large Scale
July 3, 2001, the National Security Ministry of Qingdao City illegally arrested more than 20 Falun Dafa practitioners who went out of their homes. Now, their whereabouts are unknown.
8. [Baoding City, Hebei Province] "So That's How the 1400 Cases Were Made Up!" -- The Criminal Records of Wang Fan, Yu Xiuqin of Baoding City, Hebei Province
One day, Wang Fan, the secretary of the political security committee of Xianyu Town, Dingxing County, Baoding City, Hebei Province and Yu Xiuqin, the person in charge of the village, came to Falun Dafa practitioner Lu Yuhui's home and said, "Lu Yuhui, the town government wants you and Guo Fengxia to get on TV to establish two role models." "What models?" "People from the county government will come shortly. You just say 'After I started to practice Falun Gong, I only practiced Falun Gong at home. I did not work any more, did not feed the chickens, and also did not go to the market to sell the eggs. Falun Gong asked me not to take any medicine and that caused my illness to relapse. With the help of the government, I changed and started to work again and I built a big new house.'" They asked Guo Fengxia to say that she became insane due to practicing Falun Gong. With the help of the government, she was sent to a mental hospital for treatment and recovered and it was because the government saved her.
After hearing this, Lu Yuhui thought, "Isn't it confusing right and wrong, mixing black and white? I will not do such a mean thing!" Lu Yuhui's husband Li Zhixiang suddenly realized what had happened, "So the shots of digging for Falun, and people killing their parents on TV as well as the so-called 1400 cases of death due to Falun Gong were all made up in such a way. You are really despicable and mean! My family members who practice Falun Gong are not like what you have described. Who says my family members do not work? Before practicing Falun Gong, my wife's blood pressure was 280 and now it's normal. It is not that Falun Gong does not allow people to take medicine. It is that we do not need to take medicine. Guo Fengxia does not have any mental illness. Does speaking the truth make her insane?" In such a way, they gloomily left without success in their coercion and fabrication.
9. [China] A 53-Year-Old Falun Dafa Practitioner Still Walks Freely after Sitting Cross-Legged for 12 and a Half Hours in the Labor Camp
A 53-year-old Falun Dafa practitioner did the Falun Gong exercises whenever the guard took a nap. No one could control her.
The guards shocked her using electric batons, beatings, and tortured her until they could no longer force her to stop practicing Falun Gong. One day, the vicious guards asked her to sit cross-legged, but did not allow her to do any Falun Gong movements and did not allow her to release her legs as a way to punish her. They made her sit cross-legged for 12 and half continuous hours, but after it ended, she could still walk freely. Even the traitors were surprised and said, "She has no pulses or acupuncture points, her body is all opened up. What can we do?"
10. [China] Falun Dafa Practitioner Family Members' Virtue and Courage
Every time a Falun Dafa practitioner distributed and posted Falun Gong truth-clarifying materials, her husband would do it together with her. One time, when the practitioner was posting the truth-clarifying materials, she almost fell. Her husband thought she was not agile enough and said, "In the future, give the truth-clarifying materials to me and I will do everything by myself!"
11. [Chengdu City, Sichuan Province] The Public Security of Chengdu City Begins to Kidnap Falun Dafa Practitioners to Force Them to Attend to Brainwashing Classes on July 15
According to reliable news sources, the wicked forces in Chengdu City will start to arrest Falun Dafa practitioners on July 15, 2001 and make them attend brainwashing classes. Falun Dafa practitioners in Chengdu City, please be prepared. Before the wisdom of Falun Dafa practitioners, even the most wicked criminal conspiracy will go bankrupt.
12. [Lanzhou City, Gansu Province] A New Round of Brainwashing Classes in Lanzhou
With the end of Jiang Zemin's regime approaching, the vicious forces in Lanzhou City are unable to suppress the panic they feel as they renew efforts in persecuting Falun Dafa disciples. Recently, they secretly arrested Sun, a practitioner in Anning District.
It is believed that a new session of brainwashing classes is in the works. Every workplace in the area has been assigned to come up with a list of names of practitioners to be sent to the classes. The authorities are planning random arrests of practitioners.

13. [Changchun City, Jilin Province] Policeman Viciously Tortures Dafa Disciple Zhang Yufeng
On February 7, 2001 (Lantern Day), 30-year-old Dafa disciple Zhang Yufeng and another practitioner were arrested while receiving truth-clarifying materials. Police in the Criminal Police Section of Changchun Public Security Bureau viciously beat them up and tortured them for several days.
The police shocked her several times with electric prods. She fell down and lost consciousness many times. They also put a bullet shell between her fingers and then forcefully pinched it back and forth. Consequently, the skin was scraped off of all of her fingers, leaving the bone exposed. Furthermore, after she was beaten to the point of losing consciousness, the vicious police covered her head with a plastic bag until she was out of breath. One policeman seized her neck with one hand, and fondled her breasts with another hand. Fortunately, one policeman, who still had a bit of conscience left, stopped his obscene behavior.
The police beat her up and took turns torturing her, using almost all the torture instruments. When the quiet Falun Dafa disciple was carried on a stretcher to Tiebei Jail in Changchun City, the criminal prisoners detained in her cell were shocked to see how bloody and badly mangled she was. They shed tears for her and admired her noble behavior. Zhang Yufeng said that she had endured the tribulation and suffered so much, and she wouldn't want even one more person to suffer the same miserable treatment. In jail, Zhang Yufeng's life was sometimes in danger because of the severe torture. But whenever she felt a bit better, she would go and take care of others. Out of the great compassion she obtained from Dafa, she introduced Falun Dafa to the prisoners and looked after them, and in doing so, gained their admiration and respect. One of the prisoners told whomever she met, "Zhang Yufeng is really something! She is great!"
Presently, Zhang Yufeng is still being detained in Tiebei Jail in Changchun. People of goodwill, please show your concern and help. People of justice, please take measures to stop the evil in the Criminal Police Section of Changchun Public Security Bureau.
14. [Changchun City, Jilin Province] Unmarried Female Dafa Disciple Brutally Tortured in the "Hospital" of Tiebei Jail
A 24-year-old unmarried female Dafa disciple was tied to a bed and force-fed in the "hospital" at Tiebei Jail. A fixed pipe for feeding was inserted into her nose. She had to stay in bed even when she needed to go to the bathroom. She was often wet with urine from head to toe. Because of the orders from "above" (authorities) to intensify the torture, they even inserted catheterization pipes into the woman's body to inhumanely torture her. Let's use our best efforts to stop this brutal behavior!
15. [Shijiazhuang City, Hebei Province] Lawless People in Bethune International Peace Hospital Kidnap Dafa Disciple
Zhao Weihong is a 31-year-old Dafa practitioner and an employee of Shijiazhuang Station Branch of China's Industrial and Commercial Bank (Telephone number of the director's office: 86-311-7021774). On June 14, 2001, when she went to clarify the truth of Falun Dafa in the residential compound of Bethune International Peace Hospital, she saw some slanderous words about Falun Dafa on the bulletin board. After she erased them she noticed several banners also in the compound, which bore insulting words about Dafa on them. Out of her benevolence and a wish to offer salvation to all beings by clarifying the truth, she hung up signs which proclaimed the truth.
At this time, police from the Political Security Department of the hospital and the local police station rushed over. They kidnapped her in the light of day and sent her to the Shijiazhuang Detention Center.

16. [Shijiazhuang City, Hebei Province] The Police Illegally Detain and Torture Liu Suran, the Head Nurse at the No. 3 Hospital of Hebei Province
Thirty-eight-year-old female practitioner Liu Suran was a head nurse at the No. 3 Hospital of Hebei Province. The hospital removed her from this position because she persisted in practicing Falun Dafa and following the principles "Truthfulness, Benevolence, and Forbearance." On June 13, 2001, police from the Gexin Street Police Substation, Shijiazhang City arrested her for distributing materials that clarify the truth about Falun Dafa. She was later transferred to the No. 2 Detention Center of Shijiazhang City, where she was inhumanely tortured. Her ten-year-old son was left at home with no one there to take care of him.

17. [Jilin Province] Exposing the Fascist-Like Crimes of the Heizuizi Concentration Camp
The Jilin Female Labor Camp imprisons nearly one thousand Falun Dafa practitioners. All of them suffer various tortures. The police guards there torture practitioners again and again by using punishment tools, like electric batons, which are used to shock practitioners. Practitioners are also beaten and kicked.
The thugs do not even let handicapped people go. They force Dafa practitioners to renounce Dafa and those who do not give in are deprived of sleep, being forced to stand day and night. Because people watch practitioners in turns, this standing punishment often lasts for several days.
We warn those thugs from the Heizuizi Concentration Camp: immediately stop persecuting Dafa practitioners. Otherwise, you will receive retribution for your evildoing in the days that come!
18. [Dalian City, Liaoning Province] Beijing Police Illegally Sentence Dalian Dafa Practitioners to Labor Camp
Dalian Dafa practitioners Li Jingyi and Li Mei'e are sisters who went to Beijing to validate Dafa in October 2000. In March 2001, malicious policemen forcibly took the sisters away and illegally detained them in the Changping Detention Center, in Beijing. In June, they were illegally sentenced to one and half years of forced labor reeducation.
Female Shandong Dafa practitioner Wang Aiying went to Beijing to appeal in April 2001 and was illegally detained in the Changping Detention Center in Beijing. She was secretly transferred on May 29, 2001 and now nobody knows her whereabouts.
19. [Beijing] He Zuoxiu's Scientific Report: "The Movement Law of Quantum-Mechanics Accords with Jiang Zemin's 'Three Representations'"
In a workshop on quantum mechanics at the Chinese Academy of Science He Zuoxiu said, "The movement law of quantum-mechanics accords with Jiang Zemin's 'Three Representations'[Political slogan for XX party]." A few upright scientists left the meeting immediately. In China's highest-level scientific research organization, such ignorant flattery can be publicly displayed. Yet, dozens of scientists from the Chinese Academy of Science, tens of thousands of scientists throughout the whole country who have outstanding scientific accomplishments, and many outstanding young scholars were sent to jails and detention centers by vicious authorities for practicing Falun Gong. The authorities deprived them of the right to work for their home country and people. Who on earth who is against society, against science, and against human beings? The persecution of these scientists who study Falun Gong is really a historical degradation, the dishonor of the nation, and the real adversity of the country!
20. [Yaobei, Jilin] Police Illegally Arrest Falun Dafa Practitioners
In the afternoon of June 23, 2001, police from the Division of Political Security in Taobei District Police Station, Baicheng City, Jilin Province forcibly took away Falun Dafa practitioners Guan Chunyan, Li Guiqin, Zhao Yaqiu (female) and her husband, Wang Xicai (not a practitioner, already released) while four of them were reading Dafa materials in Zhao Yaqiu's home.
21. [Jilin City, Jilin Province] Falun Dafa Practitioners in Jilin City Need to Be Especially Vigilant in order to Resist Arrest
Police activity has increased in the Longtan District of Jilin City. They follow or tail practitioners, "stand watch" at their homes, ask special agents to send Dafa materials to them and then ransack their homes, etc. To date, 11 Dafa practitioners have been arrested.
The Dafa practitioners known to have been arrested are:
Xiao Lihua, female, 47 years old, is a resident of Longdong Residential Community. At present, she is detained in the No. 3 Detention Center in Jilin Province.
The 250 Police Station illegally arrested 4 people including Gao Hongcai and his wife.
Sun from Xinjilin, his wife, and a 15 or 16-year-old Dafa practitioner were arrested.
Chen Wei, Zhang XX and Liu XX from Tiedong were arrested.
The situation of other practitioners is yet to be investigated.
22. [Huhehaote City, Inner Mongolia] Falun Dafa Practitioner Wang Xia Is Brutally Tortured at the Huhehaote Labor Camp
Wang Xia, female, 29 years old, is a Dafa practitioner in Linhe City, Inner Mongolia. She was illegally detained and persecuted because of going to Tiananmen to validate Dafa. Police put shackles on her and sent her to the Huhehaote Female Labor Camp. She continued to practice the exercises in the labor camp. So Liu, the head of Team 3, shocked her with an electric baton continuously as she walked all the way from the hallway to the ward. Later, the vice head, Chang Hong, ordered her to be handcuffed and then hung up by her cuffed hands for 2 hours. Her arms became bruised, ice-cold and numb. Then they cuffed her and hung her up by her hands in the same way for another whole day. Afterwards, they gave her a physical exam. They found that she was several months pregnant. Nevertheless, they continued to torture her, forcing her to unload coal, load cow dung, and turn up the soil. When there was no farm work, she was forced to pack more than 10 thousand pairs of sanitary chopsticks everyday. After she was detained over ten days, she was sent back home with her hands still cuffed. In the beginning of March 2001, a vicious person reported her for making literature to clarify the truth. She is now illegally detained in the No.1 Detention Center in Huhehaote City.
On July 1, Wang Xia and fellow practitioners Zhang Guilan and Zhang Lida, who are detained in the same labor camp, started a hunger strike. This information needs to be further researched. Anybody who knows anything, please pay close attention to this matter.
We hope all fellow practitioners who have read this article, will send forth righteous thoughts to eliminate evil in the Inner Mongolian Area.
23. [Changchun City, Jilin Province] A Vicious Person Who Persecuted Dafa Practitioners Brings Calamity to His Family
To our surprise, in January of this year, an insensitive husband actually bribed the police and had his wife's sister, a Falun Dafa practitioner, sent to a labor camp. There she suffered inhumane torture. In June of this year this person's daughter, a senior in high school, unexpectedly jumped out of a seventh story window and died. This girl said in her letter left just before she jumped, "There is no kindness at home." Of course! How could she feel kindness living in such a family? Good will be rewarded with good and evil with evil. It is the course of nature. All vicious people who persecuted Dafa practitioners will definitely receive retribution.
24. [Dalian City, Liaoning Province] Is It Simply a Coincidence?
The middle-aged principal of the Zhongshan District Center Elementary School in Dalian City withheld the salaries of Dafa practitioners who went to Beijing to appeal. After a young teacher, whose baby was still nursing, was sentenced to 3 years of forced labor re-education, the school principal dismissed her from public employment. She lost her source of income and had a very difficult time subsisting. After that, this principal became bedridden. In May of this year, he was hospitalized and operated on twice for a brain tumor.
