[Beijing City] Sending Forth Righteous Thoughts on Jingshui Bridge á
While sitting on Jingshui Bridge, I made up my mind to help Teacher rectify the Fa in Beijing and send forth righteous thoughts. I believed deep in my heart that it was part of my vow in prehistoric times. á
It was a day in September when I went to rectify the Fa in Beijing. With only one thought on my mind, I sat in the meditation posture and send forth the righteous thoughts for five minutes on Jingshui Bridge. The whole process of my going to Beijing went so smoothly. The policemen in uniform and the plainclothes policemen were shuttling back and forth at Tiananmen Square; however, I didn't even feel a bit of interference. I crossed my legs to the full lotus position in perfect, sacred composure, held my right hand vertically in front of my chest, and began to send forth boundless righteous thoughts towards the human world, the heavens and the cosmos from Jinghui Bridge. á
[China] Let the Express Railways Tell You: Falun Dafa Is Good!á
Several days ago, the new Express Railway had a test run in X City. Many provincial and local officers attended the test run ceremony. The most impressive sight to them during the event were the banners announcing, "Falun Dafa is good!" "Falun Dafa is righteous!" throughout the railway station. Later on, when one of the officers spoke with his friends, he sighed, "This is because Jiang's regime has pressured people too hard. Falun Gong is really something!" From his words, his resentment towards Jiang and his praise of Falun Gong practitioners were obvious. á
[Beijing City] Beijing Public Security Bureau Detention Center Has Secretly Detained Many Dafa Disciplesá
Dafa disciple Han Yingli, female, 27 years old from the city of Changchun mysteriously disappeared after she went to Beijing to appeal for Falun Dafa around February of 2001. Several months later, officers from the State Security Bureau went to her work place to inquire about her personal information. The company refused to answer questions about her present situation. Not long ago, her family members had learned through many sources that Han Yingli is being illegally detained in Beijing Public Security Bureau Detention Center (located at Side Door of No.44, Banbu Bridge, Xuanwu Area, Beijing). When her family members went to see her with some money and necessities, the policemen in the detention center refused to provide any information and declared openly, "Falun Gong people are detained in a secret place at present. No contact with the outside is allowed." They even tried to take back the proof from her family members that she was detained there. á
It has been discovered that Beijing Public Security Bureau Detention Center detain prisoners there for Department 7 (a department specially responsible for big and important cases) of Beijing Public Security Bureau. According to many sources, Beijing Public Security Bureau Detention Center detains many Dafa disciples there in secrecy at present. These disciples were all arrested secretly and are being detained without a set term. Most disciples who went to Beijing to appeal during the "two conferences" held in 2001 are illegally detained there. á

[Hebei Province] The Shijiazhuang Labor Camp Starts a New Cycle of Cruel Brainwashing
It is said that the No. 2 brigade of the Shijiazhuang Labor Camp has adopted a new strategy for brainwashing: They let all of "collaborators" [former practitioners who turned against Dafa due to the persecution; in this case, most of them are males] talk to practitioners so as to brainwash them, putting huge pressure on their thoughts and mental states in an attempt to force them to give up their belief in Dafa. Some practitioners find it unbearable and their spirits are nearly destroyed.
Recently, the Shijiazhuang Labor Camp received retribution frequently. The original superintendent Wu Yuliang, commissar Wang Binfang, and a policeman from No. 1 brigade were punished according to the law.

As soon as they start to practice, they are attacked by policemen. For example, the police cuffed their feet and hands together with a "Dragon Cape"[a torture instrument]. They wore this for over thirty days. They were also beaten cruelly, and one of them was given a concussion. She lost consciousness for four to five days. Practitioners reported this to the police, but the police did not care. Even under such rampant persecution by beings without human nature, the four practitioners maintain their rock-solid faith. They have been detained for more than 30 days.
