[Changchun City, Jilin Province] Story of a Practitioner Sending Forth Righteous Thoughts to Eliminate the Evil
Because a determined female Dafa practitioner refused to give up Dafa, local police officers went to her home to detain her. She did not cooperate with the police, so they beat her. She called loudly to her neighbors, "Please, come and see. Police are beating me. The police are beating me!" She asked those police officers, "I practice Falun Gong to be a good person. I did not violate any law. Why do you all detain me and beat me?" She exposed the police officers' evil deeds to her neighbors. But they still took her away.
At the police station, her hands and feet we cuffed. They weighted her legs down with a chair and covered her head with 5 layers of plastic bags. Then they beat her up. At the beginning, she thought she would rather be beaten to death than give up the practice of Falun Dafa. Then she thought, "Is this recognizing the vicious persecution?" Why not eliminate the evil? So she said to the Teacher in her heart, "Teacher, I should not die. I want to eliminate the evil." With her righteous thought, the vicious policemen stopped beating her. She was put into the Tiebei Detention Center, but she did not obey the evil's orders and requirements. 39 days later, she was transferred to the Heizuizi Labor Camp. On the way to the labor camp, she happened to see another practitioner who was also sent to a labor camp. The two practitioners encouraged each other. They both decided not to give up the practice of Falun Dafa. When they were given a medical check-up on arriving at the Heizuizi Detention Center, the results of the check-up showed "hypertension" for one of them and the other had "heart disease." Because of these findings, the two practitioners were unconditionally released.
Though the vicious forces were really rampant, in the tribulation, as long as we could let go of the attachment of life and death, the situation would change. Teacher said, "If a cultivator can let go of the thought of life and death under any circumstances, the evil is bound to be afraid of him. If every practitioner is able to do this, the evil will of itself no longer exist." (From "Eliminate Your Last Attachments") Yes, we could let go of life and death. But we should not die, because we have to assist the Teacher in Fa-rectification and provide salvation to sentient beings. We should "completely oppose everything arranged by the evil old forces," eliminate the old evil forces and evil beings and establish Dafa's mighty virtue in the Fa-rectification period.
[Hebei Province] "Firmly Cultivate Dafa with an Unaffected Heart and Mind" -- Experience of a Hebei Province Dafa Practitioner
Police detained and beat up a female Dafa practitioner when she was clarifying the truth to the public. But with her determined, righteous belief in Dafa, she did not give in to the evil. On the way to the detention center, the car got a flat tire. The police felt dizzy and kept vomiting. On arriving at the detention center, the practitioner showed some responses to tests as "suffering from disease." So the labor camp rejected her. In the end, she was unconditionally released. The practitioner is now harmonizing into the mighty current of the Fa-rectification again.
[Chengdu City, Sichuan Province] Dafa Practitioners Send Forth Righteous Thoughts to Eliminate the Evil
In July 2001, the central "610 Office" (an office specializing in persecuting Falun Gong practitioners; 6.10 refers to June 10, 1999, when this office was set up) set up brainwashing classes in Chengdu City to persecute Dafa practitioners. Dafa practitioners saw through the evils' disguise and actively opposed the evil force's arrangement. The practitioners refused to fill in the so-called "Information Table" and strengthened their righteous thoughts. They set a time to send forth righteous thoughts together, "completely exploding the total control of the central 610 Office and the evil forces in Chengdu City," and "causing those vicious officials who persecuting Dafa practitioners to receive immediate retribution in this lifetime."
[Hebei Province] Jiang Zemin's Criminal Regime Involves Others in Persecuting Falun Gong
Since the vicious forces are at the end of their rope and have almost exhausted all their other tricks, they have aggravated the persecution of Dafa and Dafa practitioners in ever more strange ways. Authorities in a city of Hebei Province recently issued the following decree: 1. Those students pursuing university study who have close or distant relatives practicing Falun Gong should not be admitted. 2. Out-of-town people who have close or distant relatives practicing Falun Gong should no longer be permitted to settle in the city. 3. Those applicants for the Party who have close or distant relatives practicing Falun Gong should not be approved for membership.
[Kaifeng City, Henan Province] Dafa Practitioners Conquer the Evil with Righteous Thoughts
Dafa practitioner Li Xiaocui went to Beijing three times to validate Dafa. Kaifeng City police considered her as "the most stubborn person." They transferred her from Kaifeng City to Tongxu City, where there were fewer Dafa practitioners being illegally detained. She still determined to remain loyal to Dafa and kept on practicing the Falun Gong exercises and reciting the Fa. The police put shackles on her feet and tightened them with pliers. They asked her whether or not she would keep on practicing Falun Gong. The reply was, "If I stop practicing, my life will be meaningless, like death." The police handcuffed her hands. She went on a hunger strike to protest this. On the fifth day, the police feared that they had endangered her life. They removed the shackles and handcuffs. With determined righteous thoughts, Li Xiaocui defeated the evil.
[Guangzhou City, Guangdong Province] The "610 Office" Will Illegally Conduct a "Public Trial" for Falun Gong Practitioners
We have heard that on August 8, the "610 Office" will unlawfully "publicly sentence" several Falun Gong practitioners Fan Haiqin, Shi Lei and others. Though this is billed as a "public trial," even the practitioners' relatives do not know where the trial will take place. Shi Lei was detained in June 2000 when watching group exercises in Guangzhou City's Tianhe Gym Center. Police beat that practitioner. He is still in detention. The criminal who beat him is still at large, while he, an innocent person, will be put on "public trial." This is current situation in Guangdong Province, which is governed by Li Changchu, an accomplice of the human rights scoundrel, Jiang Zemin.
We hope all illegally detained practitioners' families unite, expose the truth of the persecution to society, and resist any further framing of relatives.
[Xinjiang Autonomous Region] Child is Calling for Mom
To avoid the brainwashing, Xinjiang Dafa practitioner Hou had to leave home and wander about like a homeless person. Her husband has been illegally sent to a labor camp because of practicing Dafa. Her one-and-a-half-year-old baby and elderly parents-in-law are left at home without any help, to fend for themselves. When someone visits her home, her child, thinking it is her mom, always calls out "Mom." Once when an older lady came to visit them the baby called her "Mom." This saddened the older lady who told the story to others. Everyone who heard this story would sigh and say, "Why do they (Jiang's criminal group) treat Dafa practitioners like this?"
[Tianjin City] Dafa Practitioner Wu Jian's Illegal Arrest in March; Police Refuse Contact with Relatives and Prohibit Visits
According to an insider: Wu Jian, female, 50 years old, graduated from the department of Politics and Law, Tianjin Normal University in 1982. She was a teacher at Tianjin Workers' Medical College. In March this year, police from the Hebei District Police Station and Tianjin's Police Department arrested her. She was finally sentenced in June, almost four months after her arrest. The authorities refused her any outside visitors.
Wu Jian once went to a magazine agency at Tianjin Education College to clarify the truth of Dafa, and also went to Tiananmen Square to validate Dafa and expose the evil. She was arrested in March because she had downloaded articles from Minghui Net to clarify the truth to people.
Many times, her relatives and friends requested to visit her but their requests were rejected. They all worry about her very much for not knowing anything about her condition in jail. We hope all kind-hearted people pay attention to Dafa practitioners' situations and help to appeal to achieve the release of all the innocently incarcerated Dafa practitioners.
[Huhehot City, Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region] Illegal Arrests of Several Dafa Practitioners
- At the end of June 3, 2001, Dafa practitioners who had come from other areas were arrested when they were distributing Dafa truth-clarifying materials in the suburbs of Huhehot City.
- At the beginning of July 2, 2001, police abducted Dafa practitioners Zhu Xiaoying and Li Lijun from their work-unit dormitory because they firmly practiced Dafa.
- On July 12, 2001, Dafa practitioners Hu Yujun and Lu were apprehended during the night as they were preparing Dafa truth-clarifying materials.
- On July 26, 2001, we received news that Dafa practitioners Sun Jingshan and Liu were taken away by the police. We don't know the reason.
We could not get any detailed information about the above-mentioned Dafa practitioners. We hope fellow practitioners and kind-hearted people can pay attention to their situation.
[Lingyuan City, Liaoning Province] Illegal Arrest of Two Lingyuan Dafa Practitioners
On July 19, 2001, policemen abducted Lingyuan City Dafa practitioners Zhao Baiyun and Zhang Suying from home and sent them to prison because they submitted "Solemn Declarations" to some relevant departments, including the police department.
[Suizhou City, Hubei Province] Senseless Arrest of a Suizhou Dafa Practitioner During Working Hours
One day in mid May, policemen from the Dongchen Police Station forcibly took Qiu Lilan, a physician of the Suizhou Hygiene Center, away during work. The police officers gave no reason for her arrest. She is now held at the No.2 Detention Center, without any due process of law.
Telephone number of the Hygiene Center: 011-86-722-3222836, 3224748
Suizhou Dafa practitioner Li Fengai was forced to submit to a divorce a year ago because she insisted on practicing Falun Gong. The leaders of the Residence Committee have been threatening her from time to time in order to force her to give up her belief in Falun Dafa. At the beginning of June 2001 she went to Beijing to safeguard the Fa and was arrested. She is now being held, without proper legal procedures, at the No.2 Detention Center.
At around 3pm on May 21, when doing business in front of a school, Suizhou City resident and Falun Gong practitioner Liu Defang was forcibly carried onto a police wagon by hoodlums headed by Wang Jiaguo, the assistant director of Xinjie Town, and judicial officer Gu Ziwen. Hearing the noise, some people gathered around and they all condemned the mobsters' illegal behaviors and they gave testimony that Liu Defang is a genuinely good person. The mobsters said they just want to ask her for some information and would release her soon.
A few days later, Liu Defang's husband went to the No.2 Detention Center. He explained his concerns to the person in charge and asked for his wife. Jiang, the director in charge of brainwashing class, said unblushingly, "We said that we wanted to ask your wife for some information and would release her soon. This is just a tactic of our leaders. First, we saved your face; second, we avoided undue social interference; third, we must pay attention to our leaders' image before the masses. If we would take extreme measures, the masses would scold us as bandits. Your wife needs to be brainwashed before we release her."
Liu Defang once managed to escape from the No.2 Detention Center and distributed lots of Dafa materials. She also helped another seven fellow practitioners to step forward. On July 20, the police searched her home, took her away and confiscated some materials from her home. Her husband, Jiang Zhiyong, who had previously been sentenced to one year of forced labor, was therefore forced to leave home and wandered about like a homeless person.
The Municipal Police Department easily swayed people to report Dafa practitioners with monetary rewards from 200 Yuan to 800 Yuan.
Telephone number of the No.2 Detention Center: 011-86-722-3264174.
Telephone number of Liu Guoliang, one of the wicked team leaders: 011-86-722-3222538 ext 2077 (home) or ext 2030 (office).
[Zizhong City, Sichuan Province] Brutal Tortures of Dafa Practitioners in the Nanmu City Women's Labor Camp
Recently, under the instigation of criminals in the "610 Office," the policemen in Nanmu City Women's Labor Camp started to devilishly persecute Dafa practitioners. They forced practitioners to stand up straight under the sun, from morning to evening and didn't give them food or water. The lives of these Dafa practitioners are in danger.
[Changchun City, Jilin Province] The List of Names of Criminals from Weizigou Labor Camp
Weizigou Labor Camp in Changchun City is now illegally holding over 10 Dafa practitioners and over half of them held in the four teams are being kept beyond their sentence. They have already served more than six months overtime only because they refused to write the so-called "break-up" letter renouncing Falun Gong. Since the massacre of 15 Dafa practitioners in Wanjia Labor Camp was exposed, the labor camp has been monitoring Dafa practitioners 24 hours a day. Over 10 persons, including guards and criminals, are assigned to take charge of 1 Dafa practitioner, and 4 criminals take turns to watch one practitioner and prohibit them from sleeping. The labor camp is attempting to force Dafa practitioners to give up their beliefs.
Dafa practitioner Han Yuzhu was tortured to death here. Professor Wu Yueping from the Philosophy Department of Jilin University was also illegally held here. He went on a hunger strike for over 10 days. We don't know whether he is still alive or not.
