1. [Jilin Province] The Forced Labor Education Central Hospital is Responsible for the Death of Female Practitioner Wang Kofei

About 9 AM on December 20,2001, Wang Kofei, female, a Falun Gong practitioner, who was emaciated and dying as a result of torture at the Heizuizi Women's Labor Camp in Jilin Province, was sent to the Forced Labor Education Central Hospital. While there, in spite of her being unconscious, the hospital prescribed a cardiogram but did not do any cardio-examination. They also gave her 9 bottles of 500-milliliter infusion from 9 AM to 6 PM, an average of 500 milliliters infusion per hour. She was not given any medical examination during the process. After hanging the bottle of infusion, there was no medical person to watch her, only a female criminal inmate who was affected with epilepsy changed the bottle of infusion.

In the morning Wang Kofei uttered "Ah, ah..." and then she couldn't control her urine and bowel movement. During the whole infusion process, both of her hands were cuffed on the two sides of her bed.

Until 6 PM in the evening, the person in the same room with her, could not hear any noise from her, and then finally reported her situation to the guard of the Forced Labor Camp. The guard came and found no reaction in Wang Kofei's eyes, so the guard moved her to the morgue directly without any emergency treatment.

2. [Daqing, Heilongjiang Province] Han Lihwa, an Emaciated and Dying Falun Dafa practitioner Is Ignored by Policemen from Qingxin Police Station

Han Lihwa, female, 52 years old, retired from department six of the Daqing Oil Drilling Company. She talked to her superior about clarifying the truth about Falun Gong on September 25, 2001. After she went home that day, Wang Chi, a policeman from Qingxin Police Station, along with three other policemen, forcefully took her from her home to the detention center. More than four months have passed so far, but she is still being held in there. Because of the extended duration of the detention, her body has become extremely exhausted and she fainted many times. One policeman in the detention center, out of empathy, reported her situation to the Qingxin Police Station. He suggested that she should be sent home to have her condition treated. But the police in the Qingxin Police Station ignored his suggestion. They just ignored her critical condition at the verge of death. This is so cruel!

3. [Bin County, Heilongjiang Province] Falun Dafa Practitioners Save Lives

On November 23, 2001, Xu Guangfa, and a small group of people from Binzhou Town, Bin County, drove to Harbin City on business. On the way they ran into a car accident. Xu and three other passengers were injured, two of them severely. The driver and some villagers tried to flag down a car on the road. Over one and half hours with several dozens of cars passing by, including police cars and government official cars, but none of them stopped. Standing in chilly wind, they felt a growing sense of despair. Then a minivan stopped in front of them. Three people got out of the car and carried the injured to the van. They drove them directly to the hospital. Xu and others were so moved that they did not know what to say. They tried to give those kind people some money to express their gratitude, but it was refused. The people in the van said, "We are Falun Gong practitioners. Saving lives and helping others are what we should do. We can't take one cent from you." Then they got back in the van and drove away.

This incident had a great impact among people. People are saying things like, "Those Party and government officials as well as the police did not stop to help dying people. Instead they are persecuting Falun Gong practitioners who are saving lives. Who is righteous and who is evil?"

4. [China] Falun Gong Practitioners Send Forth Righteous Thoughts to Eliminate Evil Near Detention Centers and Police Stations

The guards in a detention center in a certain city brutally tortured Falun Gong practitioners. Upon hearing this, on December 23, 2001, practitioners went to several areas of the detention centers and police stations to eliminate the evil. They were in groups of two or three people. Some recited the Fa-rectification verse while walking, and others while sitting, but it was all to specifically eliminate the evil there. They powerfully eliminated the evil with great benevolence in their hearts.

5. [Tonghua County, Jilin Province] The Recent Terror Activity of the "610" Office

Before New Year 2002, the evil brutally persecuted Falun Dafa practitioners in Tonghua County. Nineteen practitioners were illegally detained and one practitioner was forced to become homeless in order to avoid arrest. Directed by the "610" Office, many police officers intruded practitioners' homes and illegally confiscated their property. They took practitioners to detention centers when they found any Falun Dafa material in their homes. They also arrested everyone who stated that they practiced Falun Gong. Those practitioners who were arrested have been on a hunger strike for more than ten days in the detention center in protest of the persecution.

6. [Jiangxi Province] Female Falun Dafa Practitioner Jiang Lanying Still Detained After an Extension to Her Sentence

Jiang went to Beijing in 1999 and was illegally sentenced to one year in a forced labor camp. She did not cooperate with the evil and has been detained continually even after finishing her sentence. In order to hide her illegal detention, Jiangxi Female Labor Camp did not release her, instead, the police transferred her to another detention center in November 2001. When interrogated by the police, she clearly stated that she would persist in her practice of Falun Gong. They then sentenced her to three years in a labor camp and sent her to Nanchang City Forced Labor Camp.

Other practitioners who are in the same situation include, Liang Meihua (female), Shu Juan (female), etc. who have been released from provincial labor camps only to be sent to a city labor camp or detention center.

7. [Guangzhou, Guangdong Province] The Police Arrest Falun Gong Practitioners

On December 10, 2001, eight to nine police officers, both in uniform and in plainclothes, invaded the homes of Guangzhuo practitioners Zhou Danyu and Chen Yongtao. They confiscated their property and illegally arrested them without informing any of their family members. They then broke into Zhou's parents' house. They seized and took a photo of Zhou's mother and searched everything in the house. It is said that they came from the Guangzhou National Security Department. Zhou and Chen are still being held in a detention center.

In December 2001, because dictator Jiang went to Macao for the celebration of "First Anniversary Homecoming" of Macao, the National Security Department has illegally detained a large number of practitioners. Zhou has been illegally detained for more than 20 days.

8. [Taihe County, Anhui Province] Practitioner Pei Guoqi Is Illegally Detained at the Taihe Detention Center

Five practitioners including Pei Guoqi and Gao Hewu were arrested around the same time.

Pei is a railroad worker on the Huainan railroad. Since July 20, 1999, he went to Beijing many times to clarify the truth and appeal for Falun Dafa and has been closely monitored by his work unit. After being arrested, he did not cooperate with the evil's request to give other practitioners' information away and was brutally beaten by the police.

A local Falun Dafa practitioner was arrested by the Taihe "610" Office when he went to visit Pei.

9. [Hefei City, Anhui Province] All Evil Pictures Disappear

The Hefei government displayed some pictures slandering Falun Dafa in their show windows. Upon hearing this, in the morning of January 5, 2002, more than 10 Falun Dafa practitioners went there to eliminate the evil. They firmly sent forth righteous thoughts and posted banners on the display window with words eliminating the evil. One hour later, all the evil pictures completely disappeared.

10. [Wuhan City, Hubei Province] Practitioner Zheng Xiaoqi Is Kidnapped

Around New Year's Day 2002, the police illegally searched the houses of many Falun Dafa practitioners and they arrested many of them. In the evening of December 28, 2001, two local police and four residential office personnel at Xuzhou Second Village, which belongs to the Xincunjie Local Police Station in Jiangan District, invaded Zheng's home and demanded to search the premises. Zheng firmly refused, so they could not proceed with their illegal action. However, the next afternoon, another group of police from the local station broke into his house. They forcefully searched the house and took Zheng away. They left the house in a mess.

12. [Lanzhou, Gansu Province] Middle School Female Teacher Suffers Persecution

Wei Zhouxiang, female, about 30 years old, a political science teacher of the Eighth Middle School in Lanzhou City, graduated from the Northwest Teachers College. Because she firmly believed in "Truthfulness, Compassion and Forbearance" and refused to give in to the vicious force of the persecution, she was deprived of her right to lecture and was treated with much injustice. Last December, police colluded with some individuals from her school and arrested her illegally. Accordingly to a reliable source, she has been sentenced to one and half years in a forced labor camp and has been imprisoned in the Pingantai Forced Labor Camp in Lanzhou.

13. [Chongqing, Sichuan Province] County Government Persecutes Dafa Practitioners in Mental Hospitals

In the year 2000, Dafa practitioner Wu Hongmei (female) has been locked up twice in the mental ward of the Beipei Coal Mining Rehabilitation Center of Chongqing City, Sichuan Province. She has experienced severe persecution there. In the center, there was already a Dafa practitioner whose body was very swollen from torture, and she had a confused mind. The person in-charge threatened Wu: "If you do not reform [give up practicing Falun Gong], we will treat you like a mental patient and make you insane. We will then announce in the newspaper that your mental breakdown was caused by Falun Gong." However, their plot was not successful. They then sent Wu to Chongqing Women Forced Labor Camp for further persecution. On December 18, 2001, without informing Wu Hongmei's family, she was forcibly sent to the Xie Machang Mental Hospital in the Beipei Section by a Longfeng County Government official and by police. She has still not yet been released.

Before this incident, Dafa practitioner, Zhou Chengyu's death was caused by forced medication in the Chongqing Forced Labor Camp.

We would ask all Human Rights organizations around the world to call on the Chinese government to stop the persecution of Falun Dafa practitioners.

14. [Chongqing, Sichuan Province] The Inside Story of Brainwashing in Xishanping Forced Labor Camp

The Xishanping Forced Labor Camp has been specially assigned the task of illegally detaining Faun Gong practitioners. The instructors and policemen are awarded 500 Yuan [Chinese currency, the monthly salary for an average Chinese urban worker is about 500 Yuan] for converting a Falun Gong practitioner in renouncing his belief. They will also be awarded with recommendations and promotions. Therefore, the vicious persecutors have been racking their brains to find more effective brainwashing methods.

Dafa practitioner Chen Defu, a retired worker, was kidnapped and taken to the Forced Labor Camp and brutally beaten until he was unconscious. They beat him again when he regained his consciousness. The police claimed that he would stop beating him if Chen wrote the 3 letters [Translator note: Transformation letter, guarantee letter, and repentance letter].

Yuan Yugang, Liu Minghua, Liu Xiangtai, Wu Deqiang, Mei Guang were sent to the Fifth Team of Brigade Two and were under the guard of policemen Li Yong and Gao Kon. The two have ordered the criminal inmates from the same ward to brutally beat the five practitioners many times. They stopped the practitioners from sleeping and tried to force them to slander Teacher. They ceaselessly beat the practitioners and claimed that they would stop hitting them if they would write and sign the three letters.

Liu Xiangtai immediately went to Beijing to appeal after he was released from the Forced Labor Camp in July. It was said that he was sentenced again. Liu Minghua has demanded that the education center give him back the 3 letters that he wrote but he was refused.

15. [Chongqing] The 610 Office of Jiangjin City Used Brainwashing Classes to Detain Dafa Practitioners

The 610 Office of Jiangjin City in Chongqing has taken the released Dafa practitioners from Chongqing Women Forced Labor Camp, Chongqing Xishanping Forced Labor Camp, Jiangjin City Custodial Center and Detention Center to local brainwashing classes by police car; they were Li Jiming, Tang Benlan (female), Wen Qinghua, Xie Xingling (female), Kang Yi, Kuang Xinrong, Zhou Zequn, Dong Shaogtai and others. Police guard the practitioners.

Every practitioner has a so called "helper" watching over him 24 hours a day. The 610 office terrorists have blackmailed and deceived Dafa Practitioners' families into paying a fee totaling 60 Yuan a day: 20 Yuan each for the living cost for practitioner, the living cost for the "helper", and salary for the "helper".

The condition to be released from the brainwashing class is to sign the 'Guarantee Letter' [of giving up practicing Falun Gong].

Until now, Kuang Xinrong and Kang Yi have already been detained 76 days. Dong Shaotai was detained 16 days, 60 days for Wen Qinghua and 17 days for Zhou Zequn.

Dafa practitioner Wang Xianjun, a retired worker from Chongqing Telecommunication Office, disappeared on December 24 when he took his grandchild to school. A few days before his disappearance, the director summoned him to a conversation where he did not compromise.

Wang Wanxin, a retired employee of the Shaqu Electricity Factory, was illegally held in the brainwashing class set up by Chongqing City. On his birthday December 23, his family went to visit him but they were not allowed to see him. More than ten Dafa practitioners from different places were detained and subject to forcible brainwashing. The practitioners were not allowed to step outside the room; eating, drinking, defecating and urinating were all done in the same room. Three "helpers" watched the practitioners day and night. The practitioners were not allowed to communicate with each other and were forced to watch slanderous TV programs, and read slanderous books. Further, no visits from family members were allowed.

16. [Heilongjiang Province]"857" Farm Illegally Detains 11 Dafa Practitioners

At the end of 2001, while families were expecting a happy new year, Liang Junlin, the head of the"857" Farm Public Security Bureau, once again ordered police to arrest Falun Gong practitioners. Without any warrant, police arrested 11 Dafa practitioners. The arrested practitioners were: Peng Jinyu, Sun Fengsong, Dong Renlan (female), Gao Yuan, Zhang Hongjiang, Jia Yulong, Huang Lingzhi (female), Fu Lianhua, Zhu Yongshan, Zou Huailan (female), Chang Yan (female). Police also illegally searched the home of Zou Huailan and Chang Yan.

17. [Mishan City, Heilongjiang Province] The Criminal Record of the Officials in the Public Security Bureau

On the evening of January 3, 2002, Meng and Du from Mishan city's Public Security Bureau along with their henchmen went and searched the home of Dafa practitioners Xue Yanrong (husband) and Chi Chunxia (wife). Having found nothing, the police brought the couple and their two-year old baby to the Bureau and interrogated them the same night.

Having no way out, Chi Chunxia jumped from the fourth floor and after falling, fainted on the second floor balcony. Police found her but showed her no mercy or attention. Not until the afternoon of January 4 was she sent to a hospital. Her feet, hands and face were all frostbitten, her skull was fractured, and her throat was cut to feed oxygen. All the medical expenses were charged to her family. The two-year old baby was left to Xue's brother and sister-in-law while he is still being detained.

On January 10, 2002, Chen Zhaofu and his son Chen Shouqing reported Dafa practitioners to police. About five policemen from the Changhong police station climbed over a wall and stole into Dafa practitioner Li Fenghua's (female) home. They arrested Li Fenghua, Li Yanjie (female), Li Xianglan (female), Lan Jizhi (female), Feng Xiujuan (female) and Duan Yifa who were binding Dafa materials. At the same time, police confiscated a lot of Dafa books, materials and a bunch of keys. Police also searched the neighbor's home, and they made a lot of noise while searching, yelling foul words. Before this, Li Fenghua's husband and their first daughter were forced to leave home for about one year to avoid being arrested, simply because they are Dafa practitioners. Now only her younger daughter (age 14) is at home, and the house is being monitored.
