[Northeast China] Practitioners from a Northeastern County Successfully Hold an Experience Sharing Conference
On January 7, 2002, practitioners from a county in Northeast China successfully held an experience-sharing conference, the main topics being "Study the Fa and cultivate our heart. Keep up with the process of Teacher's Fa-rectification." About 100 practitioners attended the grand and peaceful conference that lasted for 3 hours. When the Dafa music "Pudu" was gently playing, every practitioner cried. Practitioners all sensed the compassionate salvation Teacher offers us. Tearfully, practitioners shared their own cultivation experiences of rectifying the Fa. During the conference, practitioners received Teacher's new article "Fa-Lecture at the Conference in Florida." Everyone was very happy. Crying, they read or listened to the article. Through this experience sharing, practitioners realized their own attachments and felt encouraged. They determined to keep up with the process of Teacher's Fa-rectification and work harder.

[Chengmai County, Hainan Province] Partial Accounts of Police Torture and Abuse against Falun Dafa Practitioners
Mrs.Chen Yuanjie, female, over 30 years old, an employee of Chengmai Middle School, repeatedly stepped forward to validate Dafa. Policemen searched her home many times. On July 13, 2001 she was kidnapped while on her way out to shop for groceries. She is now being detained at Chengmai County's No. 2 Detention Center. At the end of October, policemen interrogated her while they severely tortured her at the Chengmai Jinpoyuan Hotel; no one was allowed to visit her at the time. Her current situation is unknown.
Mr. Qiu Qingbin, male, over 30 years old, is Mrs.Chen Yuanjie's husband. On September 20, 1999 he was arrested at home and sentenced to one year of forced labor camp. After his release upon completion of his term in November of 2000, he devoted himself to the Fa-rectification process again. Later, he was again illegally sentenced to a forced labor camp sentence for distributing Dafa truth-clarifying literature. This married couple has a 5-year-old daughter at home. No one is currently taking care of her.
Chen Huajin, female, over 40 years old, was an instructor from the Chengmai Teacher Training Institute. On August 20, 2001 she was illegally detained for posting Dafa truth-clarifying flyers. Her family bailed her out afterwards. In the middle of October, policemen duped her into the Jiangnan Police Station with the excuse of "wanting to question her." She has been detained at Chengmai County's No. 2 Detention Center without due process of law.
In November of 2001, Meng Zhaolan, female, over 30 years old, from Ruixi Town of Chengmai County, was arrested when she was distributing Dafa truth-clarifying literature. Policemen beat her madly in order to find out the source of the truth-clarifying materials. She did not cooperate with them and went on a hunger strike to protest the abuse. She is currently detained at Chengmai County's Taiping Drug Rehabilitation Center.
Since July of 1999, the lawless officials from Chengmai County have been eagerly working for Jiang Zemin's regime. In December of 2001, after they tried to shift the blame of the "Qiu Defeng murder case" onto Falun Gong practitioners at Yutang Village, they started another round of persecution. They illegally searched practitioners' homes many times, forcing practitioners to abandon their homes to avoid further persecution.

[Jiamusi City, Heilongjiang Province] Lawless Officials Plot to Frame Dafa
An individual named Xu Fenghua from Jiamusi City of Heilongjiang Province was interested in getting in touch with practitioners. He had only practiced the exercises but did not study the Fa [law and principles of the universe]. He has not even read through a Dafa book once so far; neither did he understand how to improve his xinxing [mind and heart nature]; therefore, many of his bad habits remained. At the end of 2001 he had a conflict with his wife and daughter. Mr. Xu took a knife and threatened his wife and daughter. His daughter called the police. Xu's home was then searched and he was detained at detention center for more than 20 days. This was actually a domestic disturbance matter. In order to defame Dafa, lawless officials tortured and threatened Mr. Xu and conned Mr. Xu's wife and daughter with the promise of material gains. We suggest that practitioners who read this message will send out righteous thoughts together to eliminate the evil and stop the evil forces from using this incident to damage Dafa.
[Dalian City, Liaoning Province] Corrupt Policemen Kidnap Practitioners from Work

[Haikou City, Hainan Province] Detailed Accounts of the Kidnapping and Arrest of Brother and Sister Wu Minglei and Wu Jie
It's said that in November 2001 a Dafa practitioner from Chengmai County drove to Jinjiang Town in Chengmai County, west of Haikou City, to distribute Dafa truth-clarifying literature. This Dafa practitioner also posted flyers in towns along the west side of the Haikou-Yulin Road. A police officer found him when he passed by Laocheng Town, the same town where the murder case of Qiu Defeng was concocted to frame Falun Gong, and closely followed him right afterwards.
This Dafa practitioner didn't do well facing the threats and lure of the police. He told the police about practitioner Wu Minglei who worked in the tariff-protection zone of Haikou City. Before dawn on November 26, 2001 a gang of lawless police officers attempted to forcibly break into the Wu family's home. The brother and sister refused to open the door. In the meantime they sent out righteous thoughts to eliminate the evil and quickly hid some Dafa materials. About an hour later, these lawless policemen broke the iron security door and ransacked the Wu's home, making a mess. At about 3 a.m. they abducted Wu Minglei and Wu Jie from home and detained them for a month on the 3rd floor of the Management Committee Building in the Laocheng Industrial Development Zone. During this period, Miss Wu Jie acted resolutely and staged a hunger strike to protest this unlawful treatment. On the 7th day of her hunger strike, while she was unconscious, policemen sent her to a hospital for intravenous injection. After Miss Wu Jie woke up, she resumed the hunger strike, and the same forced treatment was repeated several times. Being afraid of taking responsibility for her critical condition, the policemen hurriedly rounded up people to come in and persuade Miss Wu Jie to eat.
After being detained for more than a month, the brother and sister were transferred to Chengmai County's Detention Center, where Mr. Wu Minglei suffered from diarrhea and became very weak. According to the police officers that contacted Miss Wu Jie, many police officers respected and admired the brother and sister very much. They think the two are intelligent, well educated and good mannered; they don't understand why good people like them are being detained.
Recently, three other practitioners, including Lu Qing from Hainan Province, have been arrested.
[Haikou City, Hainan Province] Practitioners Post Dafa Truth-Clarifying Flyers in the New Year to Offer Salvation to People
Around New Year's Day, practitioners in Hainan Province successively came out to post Dafa truth-clarifying flyers. A large amount of truth-clarifying signs appeared in Binhai New Village, Haifu Road, Wanluuyuan and some other places. It was very touching that a lot of people not only did not tear down the flyers but also asked others not to do so. They said, "Don't take it down. Can't you see where it says: 'Whoever tears down Dafa materials will receive retribution'?"
[A'cheng City, Heilongjiang Province] Details of the Persecution and Extortion of Practitioner Cheng Liyun
Miss Cheng Liyun, female, 39 years old, lived in A'cheng City of Heilongjiang Province.
On June 9, 2000, Miss Cheng went to Beijing to appeal for Falun Gong and was arrested without valid reason. She was sent to the No.2 Detention Center of A'cheng City and was held there for an extended period, a total of 22 days. After being extorted 5,000 Yuan by people from her work unit and bilked of another 5,000 Yuan by the A'cheng Police Department she was released.
On November 6, 2000 she went to Beijing for the second time. Some lawless policemen from Beijing's Qianmen Police Station locked her in an iron cage. Following that, they sent her to the suburban Fangshan Police Station where she was interrogated from 9:00 p.m. to 3:00 a.m. the next day. Later, she was put into solitary confinement, not allowed to use the toilet and deprived of sleep. The solitary confinement was filthy, with urine and excrement everywhere. She couldn't even find a clean place to stand. After 7:00 p.m. the next day, she was sent to Beijing's Detention Center and detained there for one day. On the third day people from her work unit escorted her back and extorted 3,000 Yuan from her.
On July 2, 2001, she went to a rural area to distribute Dafa truth-clarifying literature. On her way back home, personnel from A'cheng's Seeds Factory's Police Station illegally arrested her. On October 26, under strong protest from her family members, she was released, after having being detained with death-row criminals for nearly four months at the No.1 Detention Center of A'cheng City.
On December 7, 2001, at 3:00 p.m., after following her for more than 20 days, an individual named Chen Shengqi from the factory's Security Section arrested her in the factory's area. During the process of arresting and body searching her, many kind-hearted people came by. With the help and support of those kind people, Cheng Liyun was able to get away from there. However, she dared not to go back home. Authorities from her work unit forced her husband to look for her and threatened that he would lose his job and his salary would be suspended if he could not find her.
[Hailar City, Inner Mongolia Autonomy Region] A Rainbow Above Hailar City
On the morning of January 20, 2002, the day when the practitioners all over the world collectively sent out righteous thoughts, a rare scene appeared in the sky above Hailar City. Two shiny spots appeared on both sides of the sun, placed at equal distance from the sun. It looked like there were three suns in the sky. It was even more spectacular that a giant rainbow appeared in the middle of the sky. The rainbows I've seen before were always around the sun or moon. This was the first time I saw one by itself. In addition, it is very rare to see rainbows in the winter in Northern China. The scene gradually vanished by 1:00 p.m.
