[Northeast China] The Power of Compassion Destroys an Evil Display
At the end of November, the evil people in a county of northeast China held a picture display slandering Dafa in a science museum and required Dafa practitioners to go and view it. Dafa practitioners obtained the news in advance and firmly refused to go. Some leaders in the factories and institutes, obeying instructions from their superiors, dispatched people to go to there. Benevolent Dafa practitioners sent forth righteous thoughts and wiped out the arrangements of the evil. Several practitioners went to the house of a practitioner who lives next to the museum. They sent forth righteous thoughts once every hour. Another two practitioners went to the museum building to post Dafa truth materials on the wall. The effect of eliminating the evil was very good. Later we heard that few people went to the display. Some people felt a headache as soon as they stepped into the display area and instantly left. Some people could not clearly see the pictures and left after walking around. The display was up for only one day before closing.
[Shijiazhuang City, Hebei Province] The Facts of Hebei Normal University Persecuting Dafa Practitioners
The unlawful officials in Hebei Normal University have been persecuting Dafa practitioners for two years and the situation is getting worse.
At the end of 1999 Dafa practitioners, An Qiufen and Li Man, students from the department of education, went to Beijing to appeal and were dismissed from the school. The security division ransacked their apartments and confiscated their precious Dafa books. Both of them were escorted back to their hometowns, detained and persecuted.
In September 2000, the parents of Li Man spent 10,000 Yuan lobbying officials to let Li Man go back to school. During this period, Zhang Hushan, the president of the department and Hu Nan, the director of her class, tried many times to force her to "expose and criticize" Falun Dafa during the assembly of the whole university. Li Man had to leave the school and do temporary work to make a living.
In January 2001, she was illegally sent to Shijiazhuang Forced Labor camp because she made Dafa truth-clarifying materials. The leaders of her university have no concern for her well being, and allow her to suffer the persecution.
In September 2001, a student in the Department of Chinese Language was dismissed because she refused to write the "guarantee letters".
It is said that the security division together with some unlawful thugs recently abducted four or five teachers and sent them to a brainwashing class. A teacher from the department of physics was abducted during a break when he was teaching a class. The two retired employees, Zhang Xiuzhen and Liu Aiyang, were abducted by the security division too, and were sent to the brainwashing class. The person in charge is team leader Ma from the Judicial Bureau.

[Sichuan Province] Kaiyuan Artistic College: Dafa Truth Materials and Flyers Suddenly Appear
On December 23 2001, at Kaiyuan Artistic College, many Dafa materials and flyers appeared, but they were taken away instantly by policemen on duty. This matter shocked the leaders of the college. At a meeting that night, the director of the division of student affairs, Wang Zhixiong, tried his best to support Jiang Zemin and Luo Gan's terrorist activities and mislead the students. He tried to instill hatred towards Dafa in the minds of the students.

[China] The Truth of Dafa is Widely Spread in a Fabric Factory and People Make a Clear Distinction between Right and Wrong
A retired party secretary of a factory became ill and was admitted to the hospital. His factory did not give him a penny for medical expenses. The old man pondered that he had devoted his entire life to the Party and in return was treated so poorly. He could not accept this and committed suicide by hanging himself. This issue caused a great shock in his factory and some other factories. The police station and the city government tried their best to cover up the truth. They claimed that the old man died naturally. The employees are all very angry. Privately, they say, "For Falun Gong practitioners, you count beating them to death as suicide. Now, an old party member who has worked hard his whole life was forced to commit suicide. You claim that he died naturally. You make rumors to slander other people but lie to cover your own scoundrel actions. What kind of government is this? What kind of world is this?" Because the truth of Dafa is deeply rooted in people's hearts in these fabric factories, the employees and family members said to our Dafa practitioners privately, "Fortunately, the old secretary has never practiced Falun Gong, otherwise they would put the responsibility on Falun Gong."
Originally, there were four people in the "610" office of the factory, now only two remain. They drink tea and read newspapers all day and said privately when chatting with intimate friends, "Why arrest those good people? It is much better to improve the productivity of the factory if they have energy. Perhaps you will not notice even if practitioners put up truth flyers on the back of your body. In that case, how can we catch them?"
[China] "Fu Yibin" Becomes One of the Key Words for China to Block the Internet
Recently, China's Internet Blocking System added a new key word -- "Fu Yibin". We can see that the evil forces, in order to cover up the truth about the Fu Yibin killing, block the Internet. It is this foolish behavior that exposes the fear in their hearts.
[China] Lawless Officials Use Dafa Practitioner's Property to Bribe Higher Authorities
I went to Beijing to appeal on May 28th. My house was ransacked on May 29th. Corrupt officials from the township government took away three TVs, a fridge, two washing machines, two electric fans, a gas stove, a dinner table, four chairs that belonged to my two sons and a desk lamp that my grandson used to study. I was detained for 58 days. On the day of my release, they extorted 2800 Yuan from my family. This included a 2500 Yuan deposit and 230 Yuan of 'food expenses'. My family members gave them the money without consulting me. The vicious people from the township government said that if I want my possessions back, I should pay them 6000 Yuan.
The lawless officials of the county government, in order to protect their own political positions, bribed a Beijing Detention Center with 30,000 Yuan that they had extorted from Dafa practitioners.

[Beijing] Falun Dafa Practitioner Chen Fengzhang, An Employee of the China International Airfreight Division Is Abducted To Be Brainwashed
On December 12, there was another abduction of a Falun Dafa practitioner. The manager of the China International Airfreight Division, Li Xinmin, along with Shi Jianguo and some other people, colluded with Policeman Ye Jiacheng (from the Taiyanggong Police Station in the Chaoyang District, Beijing) and officials from the "610 Office" [The 6-10 office is a bureau specifically created by the Chinese government to persecute Falun Gong. It has absolute power over each level of administration in the Party, as well as over the political and judiciary branches], Wang Renxin, Wang Shuying and Cui Shuzhen to abduct Falun Dafa practitioner Chen Fengzhang from his workplace. They sent him to a brainwashing class and have not yet released him. His wife who is also a Falun Dafa practitioner was forced to leave her home to avoid illegal arrest and torture, leaving behind a paralyzed family member who is 70 years old, and two children (a university student and a 3rd year senior high-school student).

[Daqing City, Heilongjiang Province] Sa District Detention Center in City of Daqing Illegally Detains Falun Dafa Practitioners Indefinitely
Over the past two-plus years, many Falun Gong practitioners have been illegally detained in the Sa District Detention Center in the city of Daqing. Practitioner Zhang Tieyan was tortured to death during her illegal detention here. There are over 20 Falun Dafa practitioners presently being detained here. One of the practitioners, Deng Yunhong, went to appeal to one of the related departments of the provincial government and was immediately arrested. She had already previously been illegally detained for quite a long time so her physical condition was very weak. This time, both the labor camp and the detention center did not dare to take her in. However, the Sa District Detention Center was willing to illegally detain her for a long period of time, regardless of her physical condition. Recently, they arbitrarily extended her term by another two months.
Deng has reported her situation many times to Cheng, the director, as well as to other officials in the detention center, but they have either evaded her or refused to meet with her. To this day, no one has given consideration to the issue of the "unconditional release" that the practitioners have put forward.

Under the leadership of Zhang Wei, the corrupt officials from the Inner Security Section of the Lanxi County Police Department in Heilongjiang Province have extorted a large amount of money from Falun Dafa practitioners who have gone to Beijing to appeal. They were extremely wicked and merciless and have abused the practitioners mentally and physically. Some practitioners were forced to leave their homes in order to avoid illegal arrest and torture.
Practitioner Song Chunyu, male, 28 years old, was arrested by the police because he went to Beijing several times to appeal. He was then illegally detained but twice he was able to escape. He wandered destitute in Mudanjiang and found a temporary job. Because he did some activities to clarify the truth of Dafa, he was illegally arrested by the police from the Xi'an Police Station in Mudanjiang. They illegally interrogated him using torture, and did not allow him to eat anything for seven days. He had injuries all over his body from being beaten. The police then sent him to a hospital, but still would not release him. Song Chunyu is now being illegally held in the Sidaohe Forced Labor Camp in Mudanjiang and has been sentenced to 3 years of forced labor education.
[Hubei Province] Blood Stained Record of Persecution in Shizishan Forced Labor Camp
The Shizishan Drug Rehabilitation Forced Labor Camp in Hubei Province brutally persecutes Falun Dafa practitioners. The guards forcefully subject the illegally detained practitioners to their slanderous propaganda. They also make the drug-addicted inmates beat and kick the practitioners. The practitioners being detained there are suffering much mental and physical torture.
The practitioners who have been released from there have revealed that all the practitioners detained there are forced to accept several dozen of the so-called "rules." Any prisoner who refused to obey any one of those rules was immediately tortured brutally. Once, some practitioners were handcuffed from behind, and several people took turns beating them or shocking them with electric batons for long periods of time.
