1. [China] "Falun Gong is really remarkable -- the Falun is truly everywhere"
One day in August, a person from my hometown who practiced another Qigong told me, "Falun Gong is really remarkable - the Falun is truly everywhere. I couldn't even concentrate on my exercise; it is everywhere. Please lend me your Zhuan Falun, I would like to practice Falun Gong from now on."
This reminded me of what Teacher said once, "The Fa will manifest itself in the human world one day." We would like to remind people of the world to awaken to this, so that they can position themselves for the future. This includes those who are doing evil deeds -- awaken before it is too late!

3. [Guangzhou City, Guangdong Province] Local 610 Office Arrests Dafa Practitioners
The local 610 office has closely followed the orders of the "human rights scoundrel" Jiang Zemin, viciously persecuting Falun Gong practitioners before July 22.
Fan Xiaofeng, female, 49 years old, was forcefully sent to the brainwashing class in Chuotou by policemen from the Guangzhou Railroad Commission on June 15 while she was working.
Zhou Ronglen, female, about 70 years old, was arrested from home and sent to brainwashing class by policemen from the South Tianhe Police Substation on July 20.
Wu Ruiqi, female, 53 years old, was arrested at around midnight of July 20. More than a dozen policemen from the Tangxia Police Substation in Tianhe District went to her home. The policemen knew that Wu and her family members would resist, so they called her husband, son and daughter, and deceived them into going downstairs first. They then broke into Wu's home and forcefully took her to the brainwashing class.
Mr. Mo (first name unknown), male, over 50 years old, was forcefully taken away from work on July 23. His wife, Li Jielian, and his son were forced to flee from home.

4. [Yingkou City, Liaoning Province] Record of Deeds Committed by Wang Hongkui And His Subordinates from the Baoyuquan Police Station
We are Dafa practitioners from the Baoyuquan District of Yingkou City. Over thirty practitioners from this district are currently being detained and tortured. In April 2000, Police Chief Wang Hongkui intended to arrest Dafa practitioner Lou, so he first arrested Lou's brother in Shenyang City. In order to get Lou's whereabouts, a group of policemen took turns beating his brother. In addition, police station arrested Lou's other family members as hostages, not even sparing the elderly who were over sixty years old. Lou's family members were not released until he was arrested, and he was then sent to the Yingkou Labor Camp.
The guards at the labor camp often shocked Dafa practitioners using high-voltage electric batons. Female practitioner Yang was arrested while distributing truth-clarifying flyers last December. In order to force her to implicate other practitioners, the guards shocked her and then hung her up to beat her.
The guards shocked female practitioner Yao repeatedly this April, causing the skin on her back to blacken and her arms to blister. She could not sleep on her back for a long time after that. They also detained practitioners' family members, extorting money from them. Some practitioners were fined over 30,000 Yuan. (The average monthly salary in urban areas is around 500 Yuan.) The guards under Wang Hongkui have committed countless crimes. Every arrested practitioner has been tortured to some degree.
5. [Shaoguan City, Guangdong Province] Police Kidnap and Beat Dafa Practitioners
Recently, the local police have used monetary rewards to persuade residents to report Dafa practitioners. A few people's greed has led to the arrest of many practitioners. The police have tried in vain to force practitioners to do things against Dafa. They also told practitioners that if they pay 20,000 Yuan and sign the pledge (against Falun Gong), they would be released, or otherwise, they would be sent to a labor camp in Sanshui City, Guangdong Province. Since practitioners are very determined, the guards regularly beat them.
6. [Rongcheng City, Shandong Province] Police Detain Practitioners and Send Them to Labor Camps
Xing Jianping is the city official in charge of persecuting Falun Gong. The policemen under him have detained determined practitioners for long periods of time without a specified sentence, and they tortured every practitioner upon their arrival in the detention center. If family members bribed one of the "officers" with two or three thousand Yuan, then they would treat the practitioner a little bit better. However, they still would not release them and continued to try to force the practitioners to write the so-called "Three Pledges." (Giving up and denouncing Falun Gong)
Practitioner Zou Dekui is 57 years old. On Jan 9, 2000, he was caught distributing materials about the truth of Dafa. The police detained him for more than four months and then sent him to a brainwashing class. The practitioner was released after he wrote the "Three Pledges." With help from his fellow practitioners, Zou Dekui later realized that he had done the wrong thing. He declared that cultivating "Truthfulness, Benevolence, Forbearance" is righteous. Zou was then again arrested and detained for 45 days. After his release, the police still monitored him 24 hours a day. At this point, policemen from the Tengjiazhen Police Station and Party Secretary Liu of Tengjiazhen Township forced local villagers to testify that Zou had spread Dafa after his release. As a result, Zou Dekui was arrested and detained just one day after his release. It is obvious that they never intended to release him. They just wanted to go through the procedure and have Zou sign his name on his release document. Zou was detained for another two weeks and then sent to the Wangcun Labor Camp in Zibo City on August 13.

7. [Harbin City, Heilongjiang Province] A Beloved and Respected Teacher Sent to Wanjia Labor Camp
Ye Juanli, female, 35 years old, was a dedicated teacher of Chinese language at the Jianqiao No. 3 Middle School. At the end of this May, she told her students that Falun Dafa is good and that Zhuan Falun is a precious book that teaches people to be good. She also clarified the truth about the self-immolation incident in Tiananmen Square. Two of her colleagues reported her to the headmasters, Liang Fengming and Huang Manyun. As a result, the school fired Ye Juanli.
Around 5 PM on June 5, school administrator Ai Jixiang and teacher Lu Chengjiang led three or four policemen from the Xiangfang Police Station to Ye Juanli's home. Ai Jixiang told Ye, "Headmaster Liang invited you back to school, since the students like you so much." Ye Juanli believed Ai's lie and opened the door. The policemen then stormed in and searched her home. They took away all of Ye's Dafa books and sent her to the No.2 Detention Center of Harbin City. Recently, Ye was sentenced to the Wanjia Labor Camp for one year.
8. [Beijing] Practitioner Couple Trapped by Family Members, Husband Escapes, Wife's Whereabouts Remain Unknown
In the morning of August 8, 2001, Beijing Dafa practitioners Wang Defang and Li Rurong's (alias) sister and brother-in-law forced the couple's daughter to find her parents. Along with five policemen, the sister and brother-in-law took the couple to a police station, where they were detained for a day. Since the brainwashing class was delayed, they then took the couple to a hotel room. Inside the room, the family members watched them, while the policemen stood guard outside. The couple spent the day sending forth righteous thoughts and eliminating evil. During the night, the husband sent forth righteous thought again. He forced open the iron security window by breaking the half-inch thick bars. Although two people watched him, he was able to escape. His wife's whereabouts are unknown.
