[Beijing, China] Police Stations Monitor all Public Telephones
One day, a Dafa practitioner from Beijing ran into a former colleague who is an expert in electronics surveillance control. He told the practitioner a story: One day when he went to a police station on business, he discovered that 7-8 people in one room were tapping all residential and public telephones nearby. He was very astonished, since this kind of surveillance equipment used to be installed only in the Ministry of Public Security and in City Police Departments. Nowadays they are even installed in local police stations. When he got back home he told his family to be careful when making a phone call, and to not even talk about sensitive topics. In the end he advised the practitioner to be cautious when making phone calls.
[Changchun City, Jilin Province] ChaoYanggou Detention Center Authorities Plot to Persecute Dafa Practitioners
According to inside information from the Chaoyanggou Detention Center in Changchun City, all the male practitioners illegally detained within Jilin Province, except for those from the Yanji area, would be sent to the Chaoyanggou Detention Center by December 24, where they will be subjected to further persecution.
[China] The Police Claim that Jiang Zemin's Law is: "Contact with Relatives Makes you Legally Responsible"
Recently a squad of policemen broke into a civilian's house at midnight. They searched the kitchen, balcony and bathroom and even raised the curtains to check for things. When the owner, who had not yet recovered from the fright, regained his composure and asked the police, "What's going on?" the police officers didn't respond with a reason right away. They then made up a lie in a hurry and said, "One of your relatives is a Falun Gong practitioner. Dare you say that you have nothing to do with him? You have to take legal responsibility."
For shame! In today's China one is forced to take legal responsibility for contacting one' s own relatives! No one can duplicate the means used by Jiang Zemin's regime with it's methods of domestic terrorism.
[Kaifeng City, Henan Province] Acts of Violent Brainwashing and Forced Labor in Kaifeng's Forced Labor Camp
Because he refused to give up his belief in Dafa, lawless police officers in the labor camp brutally beat practitioner Deng Jinzhong. The criminals alternately handcuffed him to the doors, windows and beds for several hours, and then forced him to do heavy labor. They also forced him to sleep on closet stool. His arms were scarred from having been burned with cigarette butts.
Practitioner Wang Jun was put into solitary confinement for insisting on cultivating Falun Dafa. The cell is completely dark, with neither windows nor lights. There is only enough room for one person to sleep. He was served only two meals consisting of cold food scraps that were left over from the previous meal. This practitioner spent the Spring Festival 2000 in such a cell. When he refused to give in to the authorities demands, he was subjected to more severe persecution. The vicious criminals beat him up first and then forced him to do the "Zhan Tai" position, which means he had to stand on a square stool, 3 inches high, against the wall with his eyes open. He was forced to do labor during the daytime and at night he was in turn monitored by the prisoners and not allowed to sleep.
A criminal named Xiao Qi who was in charge of monitoring him was very vicious. He punched him in the face and smashed his buttocks with a wooden stool and tortured him by all imaginable means. Police guards in the detention center turned a blind eye to what was happening. He was thus abused for 320 days.
Practitioner Han Yuxiang was persistent in his belief. His nose was punched so severely that it bled.
Practitoner Zhao Zemin was beaten so severely s/he suffered a lung hemorrhage and had a fever for one month. Even under these circumstances he was forced to do heavy labor.
[Shijiazhuang City, Hebei Province] Maiming of Female Dafa Practitioner Xue Xia from Brutal Beating.
Xue Xia, female, about 30 years old, from Xingtai City, Hebei Province, was unlawfully sent to a forced labor camp for insisting on cultivating Dafa. She was detained in Unit No.2 of Shijiazhang's Female Forced Labor Camp. The police authorities used all kinds of excruciating abuse to force her to give up her belief. These long-term tortures severely harmed her, both physically and mentally and she is now maimed. Ms. Xue has become incapable of taking care of herself. In the end she was tortured so severely that she has become mentally disoriented. She is still illegally detained in Unit No 2.
[Harbin City, Heilongjiang Province] Latest Records of Criminal Acts Committed by Shi Changjing and His Cronies at Changlinzi's Forced Labor Camp
After being bailed out for medical treatment in July 2001, Bi Zhihai was sent back to the forced labor camp. This happened in November 2001, because he was suspected of accessing the Internet. On December 22, 2001, when Bizhihai's illegal "forced labor term" expired, Hao Wei, the chief of the No.4 team, told him that he had to be detained for an additional month "for his hunger strike." In fact, Shi Changjing, director of Changlinzi's Forced Labor Camp, concocted this. Since some articles published on the Internet exposed his and Hao Wei's criminal acts, he retaliated without restraint. It was rumored that all those practitioners who had been on a hunger strike would have their forced labor terms extended arbitrarily.
Recently, authorities from the Changlinzi Forced Labor Camp set up an "out-of-camp team," where all the practitioners whose terms are going to expire are sent. The chief promised to give them a relaxed environment and would drive practitioners home if their family wouldn't come to meet them when their terms were "expired." It sounds perfect. However, the forced labor camp tried to find any possible excuse not to release some practitioners when their terms expired.
Because of the persecution and unsanitary conditions, most practitioners in Changlinzi's Forced Labor Camp are suffering from scabies. Their whole body has festered and their legs are swollen. It is not easy to make a small movement. They also can't sit down because the body is too sore and itchy to bear. They are suffering ultimate physical pain and discomfort.
All kind people, please pay attention to the practitioners' plight in this forced labor camp, and help to stop this inhuman persecution. At the same time all of us practitioners, please send forth righteous thoughts to eliminate the evils behind the persecution.
[Xinjiang AR] Changji Forced Labor Camp Police Officers Brutally Beat Hunger - Striking Practitioners
The police authorities in Changji's Forced Labor Camp in Xinjiang AR (Autonomous Region) forced practitioners to work overtime, overloaded them and wantonly beat and abused them. In November 2001, 20 practitioners who were illegally imprisoned there went on a hunger strike and water strike, a walkout, and refused to wear a labor camp uniform. They required of the authorities to restore the reputation of Falun Dafa, unconditionally release all unlawfully detained practitioners and removed all propaganda materials defaming Dafa.
As a result of these demands, the camp authorities used most of its policemen to segregate and persecute all of the practitioners on hunger strike. Some of them were beaten with electric batons to such an extent that they could not walk; some practitioners' lips were swollen too much to eat, and some had injuries and showed signs of trauma on their faces, noses and ears.
We appeal to kind and righteous people to pay attention to these practitioners and help them.

[Bin County, Heilongjiang Province] List of Criminals
Sun Yu, Party secretary in Ningyuan Town, Bin County, Heilongjiang Province, abused his privileges and illegally arrested practitioners many times since 2001, the time he was appointed secretary. He threatened, "I don't believe I can't defeat Falun Gong. Use any instrument of torture on them. I'll see whether or not they will continue to practice."
Several teachers of this town once went to Beijing to appeal. After that they were forced to stop working and had to stay at home. Recently, one practitioner was illegally detained after he went to Beijing to appeal. During the imprisonment, Party secretary Sun Yu forced this practitioner's spouse to leave work. He abused his power and assisted a tyrant to do evil. Such bandit-like behavior has seriously violated practitioners' human rights.
Peng Yongzhi, associate Party functionary in Ningyuan Town, Bin County, Heilongjiang Province often abused his privileges since 1999 to illegally arrest practitioners, search for Dafa books, illegally send practitioners to detention centers and forced labor camps and tear up truth-clarifying fliers.
Wang Yumei, leader of Women's League in Ningyuan Town, Bin County, Heilongjiang Province, was a woman who overtly agrees but covertly opposes. When she faced the practitioners she said, "You just practice at home." But behind the practitioner's back, she watched their actions and benefited from reporting them.
