[China] Exhibition Slandering Dafa is Immediately Withdrawn

On September 3, 2001, practitioner Zhang Rongxian, a resident from Xujia Village, Yanhu District, Yuncheng City, Shanxi Province, went to Taiyuan City to visit her daughter who was sentenced to two years of forced labor as a result of appealing in Beijing. She is illegally detained in Taiyuan City's Xindian Female Forced Labor Camp. In the labor camp registration center, the warden ordered her to slander Teacher. She refused, with stern words. In the meantime, she clarified the truth to the warden. However, the warden wouldn't listen to her. He reported her to the police. The police came, yanked Zhang Rongxian by the hair and dragged her into the police car without any valid reason. In the car Ms. Zhang was beaten and kicked. She was detained that night and a few days later she was sentenced to two years of forced labor.
[Hulan County, Heilongjiang Province] Policemen and Government Employees Extort Cash from Practitioners

[Liaozhong County, Shenyang City] Facts Regarding the Persecution of Practitioners
On October 29, 1999, policemen arrested 38-year-old practitioner Zhao Qiliang in Tiananmen Square. On October 31, 2001, local police escorted him back to the Longshan Forced Labor Camp. After he was illegally detained for over a month, four or five policemen, including Director Wang, brutally tortured him as he kept on practicing Falun Dafa in the labor camp. Afterwards, he was illegally detained for 15 days in the county police department and "fined" 5,000 Yuan. After he was released, he was under surveillance. Over one hundred practitioners were persecuted this way.
Now many determined practitioners are being persecuted in jails, labor camps, and mental hospitals as they are firmly practicing Falun Gong. We hope the international society and kind-hearted people pay attention to this issue.
[Shandong Porvince] Details of Illegal Detention in Labor Camps in Shandong Province
- Shandong Province's No. 2 Forced Labor Camp (Male Division) in Wang Village, Shandong Province
- Liuchangshan Forced Labor Camp (Male Division) in Jinan City
- So-called "reformed practitioners" beat and tortured practitioners Liu Jian, Liu Feng and Li Youtang. The "reformed" were Song Xiaodong, Sun Fuzhou, Zhao Jiashui, Shi Junhong (Shi Lei), Wang Xuefan, Jiang Weidong, Zhang Ling, Jiang Guoqin, Jing Xubin, Niu Tao and Feng Bing.
- After Liu Jian completed a 120 day hunger strike, he began another. His situation is unclear. Now he is detained in No.2 middle group of Unit No.2.
- Practitioner Xu Xun was turned in by Chen Handong, Liu Hongwei (female) and Xu Jing (female). He is now illegally detained in No. 5 middle group of Unit No.2. His situation is unclear.
- Guo Xiaohong, who was transformed into the Tianqiao District Brainwashing Class of Jinan City, has become an accomplice of the evil.
Former practitioners, those who have been brainwashed and renounced Falun Dafa, tortured practitioners using many inhumane methods. Among those committing the torture are Zhao Wei from Weihai City and Wang Yong from Laigang. They often cruelly beat and torture Chu Liwen and Jiang Benzhai, even going so far as to force Jiang Benzhai to eat human excrement.
The head of Unit No.2 of Liuchangshan's Forced Labor Camp in Jinan City is Wang Xinyu. The head of No.5 middle group of Unit No.2 is Cui Wei. 140 male practitioners are illegally detained in Unit No.2.
800 male practitioners are illegally detained in Shandong Province's No.2 Forced Labor Camp in Wang Village. 800 female practitioners are illegally detained in the No.2 Female Forced Labor Camp.
We hope all kind-hearted people and human rights organizations in the world pay attention to the issue and help to rescue the practitioners.

On December 28 and 31, 2001, he successfully put a loudspeaker at Huanxiling Forced Labor Camp, Jilin City that broadcast the sounds of Falun Dafa, effectively suffocating the evil and inspiring the imprisoned practitioners who have suffered so many abuses. Pan and another practitioner (who was also detained in a forced labor camp) printed more than 30,000 copies of Dafa posters.

[Henan Province] National Day Fa-Rectification Activities Accomplished at Shibalihe's Female Forced Labor Camp
On October 1, 2001, the National Day holiday, a party was held at the labor camp. Falun Gong practitioners from all four units in the camp attended. During the performance, practitioners unfurled two banners reading: "Falun Dafa is Great" and "Truthfulness, Compassion and Forbearance." Other practitioners present immediately reacted, calling out, "Falun Dafa is Great!" "Falun Dafa is the righteous Fa!" Then the practitioners from Unit No. 3 were taken away. On their way back, policemen started to beat them. Policemen and drug addicts beat a practitioner to the ground, using their fists to punch and their feet to kick them. One policeman took off a practitioner's pants. A drug addict took off her shoes and beat her viciously. Shen Yu kicked her body madly, cursing while kicking the practitioner. After they returned, the practitioners were locked in their own cells. Practitioners who spoke up for Dafa at the party were madly beaten.
Practitioners refused to cooperate with the evil. They did not "count numbers" each time when they were lined up. The "reformed" (former practitioners who have been brainwashed and renounced Falun Dafa.) and cell guards cursed the practitioners. "Reformed practitioners" stood at both sides of the door, striking the practitioners heavily on their backs when they came in and then sarcastically cursing them. Supported by the guards, the actions of the "reformed" were wildly arrogant.
[Beijing] Accepting Dafa Flyers is Cause for Detention
A friend from Qujing City's tobacco company told me that personnel from the Malong County tobacco company organized a trip to Beijing for vacation. Six or seven of the employees, non-practitioners, went to see the national flag-raising ceremony and met a practitioner who was distributing Dafa truth-clarifying flyers. The practitioner gave flyers to each one of them. Shortly afterwards, policemen arrested the practitioner. A female visitor, about 20 years old who was one of the 6 or 7 people on this trip saved the flyer. On their way back at the airport, security officers found the flyer on her. Although the travel guide and other fellows with her told the officer she was not a practitioner, she was detained at the airport anyway. Later she was released through a lot of explanation, but the plane had already taken off. She had to ride the train back home.

Since Jiang Zemin's criminal regime started persecuting Falun Gong in July 1999, for the sake of their personal interests, people from Sansheng Town's Government, Beibei District in Chongqing City, led by Hu Xing (mobile phone: 011-86-13650519537) have been actively cooperating with the criminal clique to do evil. They again and again illegally broke into practitioners' homes to search for Dafa materials. On September 10, 2001, practitioners Yang Shaoyu and Li Hengyu were arrested. On September 20, practitioners You Mingbi and Deng Liqun were taken away from home after ruffians Tang Xianwen, Huang Yunxia and Wang ransacked their homes. The practitioners are now missing.

You won't tell lies, right? Does your grandma have Falun Gong books?" The na ve child replied, "Yes." Zhou and other people immediately broke into Zhou Shaofen's home to search for the books. That day, knowing the lawless policemen were waiting at her home, Zhou was decided to leave her home and live in exile. She has been doing so for more than 3 months. The ruffians couldn't find her, so they took her husband to the police station and forced him to look for Zhou.
