1. [China] A Fearless Little Practitioner
A little Dafa practitioner, who is a sixth grade elementary school student, went to Beijing to appeal with her mother. On May 22, 2001, police came to search her home due to a report that her mother was in charge of handling Dafa materials. The police took the little girl to the police station. They could not get any information from her mother. Then the police tried to extract information from the little girl. The police asked this little practitioner," Do you know where you are? Are you scared?" The girl answered calmly," I'm not scared. It's said in our textbook that police serve the people, so I'm not scared." The police could not say anything. Two vicious policemen from the vice squad brutally beat and kicked the little girl. Her mouth was badly bruised from the beatings, yet she still didn't tell the name of the Dafa practitioner who sent the materials. After her mother was sent to the detention center, the girl contacted other Dafa practitioners, and continued to distribute Dafa truth-clarifying materials to thousands of families in the area.
2. [China] The Students' Righteous Thoughts
A teacher clarified the truth of Dafa to her students. Some of the students, who formerly misunderstood Dafa, came to understand Dafa, felt sympathy for Dafa practitioners and then supported Dafa. When hearing about the evil of Masanjia Labor Camp in Shenyang City, some students shed tears, and some said angrily that from that very day, they would send forth righteous thoughts to eradicate the evil. Very few students attempted to defend the evil. The students around them wanted to help them understand; " You shouldn't think that this has nothing to do with you! Everybody is in it!"
After one student with righteous thoughts heard about the truth of the persecution, he was filled with indignation and said," They should set all Falun Gong practitioners free. Falun Gong practitioners are all good people." He also stated that he would write something right away and send it out through the Internet.
3. [Changchun City, Jilin Province] The Police in the Female Labor Camp of Jilin Province Brutally Torture Falun Dafa Practitioners
At about 4 a.m. on October 27, 2000, I distributed Falun Gong flyers and was arrested by the police from Erdao Sub-bureau. They claimed that I disturbed the social order and illegally sentenced me to one year of forced labor re-education. They sent me to Tiebei Labor Camp, and I was detained there for 21 days. After that, they sent me to a female labor camp and detained me for over 2 months. During the time I was detained in the female labor camp, I saw many Falun Gong practitioners being tortured to varying degrees.
Two Dafa practitioners from Dehui were elementary school teachers. One of them is named Wang. Right after she was sent there, the wardens beat her and forced her to say she was wrong. When she answered that she was not wrong, the wardens brutally beat her, and shocked her face and hands with an electric baton. They kept her handcuffed and shackled for more than a week. She was cuffed to the bed even while sleeping, so she could not turn over at all.
Wu Fengzhen, from Hongguang County of Tumen City was sent to a female labor camp. The wardens beat her for over 4 hours. While beating her, some wardens used electric batons, some kicked her, and some pulled her hair. During the whole process, Wu Fengzhen never yielded to them.
The warden Jiang was extremely cruel to Li Xiuhua and Hou Chunhua, both of whom were detained there last March or April. Li Xiuhua is a Dafa practitioner from Shulan City, and Hou Chunhua from Jilin. The warden Jiang beat them until they were half dead. They used electric batons to shock their faces, bodies, and hands. They tied them to a bed and didn't allow them to sleep. It was very cruel and inhumane.
4. [Jianwei County, Sichun Province] Lawless Authorities Collaborate With Gangs To Kidnap And Torture Falun Dafa Practitioners
On the evening of December 20, 2000 of the lunar calendar (January 14, 2001), authorities from the Longwan Town Government (Jianwei County, Sichuan Province) took advantage of the falling darkness to abduct Zhang Longlian, Yao Benxiu, Zhu Wanying, and Zhong Shiping, all Falun Dafa practitioners, and brought them to the government building where they ripped out their hair and brutally beat them. Wan, the director from Longwan Police Substation, and his wife grabbed Chen Hongqing, a practitioner, and cruelly beat him. Wan stepped on Chen's head while his wife whipped him, resulting in torn clothes and many bruises over his whole body. Despite the physical evidence of abuse, the authorities spread rumors that Chen Hongqing had become mad after practicing Falun Gong and blamed the practice for it. In reality, they drove Chen to insanity by force. Zhu Ying and Zhu Yingfeng, both Falun Dafa practitioners, were imposed fines of 4,000 Yuan RMB (about two years income for an average rural worker) and 10,000 Yuan, respectively.
The Secretary of the Yuping Town [party named omitted] Committee, Long Jiao, incited other government officials,Wang Zhongzheng, Zhu Zhongshu, Chen Guangliang, Chen Guangshu, Wang Youfu, and the director of the town government, Song, to torture Dafa practitioners by beating them, burning their hair, denying them food and liquids many days, handcuffing them, and forcing them to stand on frozen ground out on snowy winter days. The Falun Dafa practitioners who were persecuted were Zhou Cuilan, Liao Doulan, Zhu Wanzhen, Yang Qing, Yang Shulan, Li Yingfen, and Yu Meiping. After, Long Jiao publicly said that he would ask gangs to beat, steal and rob Falun Gong practitioners. These thugs from the Yu Ping Town Government, under the direction of Zhou Guangdong and Chen Guangliang, took Dafa practitioners to a brainwashing class, not allowing them to harvest their wheat during the harvesting season.
The Director of the Town Government, Chen Guangliang, tricked Dafa practitioners into going to the town government where officials, regardless of their age, beat them, even if they were 70 or 80 years old. During the brainwashing class, these thugs refused to let practitioners go to the restroom and they behaved indecently.
5. [Hebei Province] Hebei Police Are Going to Sentence A Large Number of Falun Dafa Practitioners to Jail
Recently, the Director of a police station said that the number of people in labor camps account for a large proportion of the population of the entire country. Police proposed to send all the determined practitioners to labor camps, however, the jails and labor camps of Hebei province were all full. Thus the province officials did not approve the proposal. Once the Olympic bid and the application to join the World Trade Organization have been completed, all Dafa practitioners will be sentenced to jail terms of at least three years.
6. [Nong'an County, Jilin Province] Police from the Political Security Division, Nong'an Police Station, Kidnapped and Ransomed Falun Dafa Practitioners

They then ransacked the shop, but were left disappointed and empty handed. Zhang Bing forcibly took away the practitioners to the Political Security Division of the Nong'an Police Station.
The Division Head, Liu Shangkuan led other police, to perform a forced search of the practitioners' bodies, stole over 430 Yuan and went out to a restaurant with the money. Under the direction of Liu, the police stepped on the practitioners' toes and pierced their fingers with tools. Without following proper procedures, they illegally detained Dafa practitioners for one month and forcibly collect 3,000-5,000 Yuan from each of the practitioners.
7. [Hunan Province] Falun Dafa Practitioners Are Arrested
Around mid-June, Hengyang Falun Dafa practitioner Wang Shengliang and his wife Li Ping (alias) were missing after they returned Hengyang from Guangzhou, and their whereabouts is currently unknown. It is said that the police had posted a reward of 50000 Yuan RMB for their arrest, and the police have already arrested them.
In mid-June, Changde Falun Dafa practitioner Qin Haibo and Chen Zhi (alias) were arrested by police at their work place and their whereabouts are currently unclear. It was said that the "610 office" (the office in charge of persecuting Falun Gong) had issued a level "A" warrant for their arrest, which implied that once they were caught, they would be sentenced to ten years in prison. Both of them are kind people, and they are being persecuted just for practicing Falun Gong. International human rights organizations and kind-hearted people, please pay attention to this.

[Dongliao County, Liaoyuan City, Jilin Province] An Instance of Immediate Retribution in This Lifetime In order to coordinate with the public security personnel to persecute Falun Gong practitioners, Dongliao county Shoushan town Dashou village first community chief Xie Guodong went to practitioners' homes to search for Falun Dafa books every day, and ceaselessly slandered Falun Dafa. One day, just when he searched out a book from a practitioner's home, two unknown persons in revenue uniforms asked him: "You do not practice Falun Gong, why do you take the book Zhuan Falun?" He replied that he just confiscated this book, and also said some words that slandered Falun Dafa. Just after he finished speaking, these two persons fiercely beat him up, and then left. A lot of people gathered around to watch the scene, but no one attempted to stop the beating. After the beating, his whole body was covered with blood and wounds, and he had to be hospitalized. Just after he was released by the hospital, he had hemorrhoids, and he had to go back to hospital for surgery. Because of continuous bleeding, he died several days after returning home. The villagers all said that this was the retribution for his helping the tyrant, Jiang Zemin to do evil.
