(Clearwisdom.net) At the end of September 2002, Pingdu police escalated their persecution of Dafa practitioners again. They entered private homes without warrants and kidnapped Dafa practitioners.

Dafa practitioner Ms. Zhang Qingfang is a native of Zhugou Town, Pingdu City. Because of harassment from the local police, she and her husband had left home for a period of time and were planning to go back home in mid-September. As soon as she entered her home, Zhang Qingfang was kidnapped and taken away by police, who had broken in earlier and were waiting for them. Her husband got away.

Dafa practitioner Zhang Xiufen and Wang Yuying were employees of a local company. On September 26, police officers kidnapped them at work and sent them to a brainwashing class. They refused to cooperate with the police in the brainwashing class and went on a hunger strike to protest the their crimes. Nevertheless, the police kept torturing and abusing them. Currently, they are extremely weak and their lives are in grave danger.

Meanwhile, police all around the city frequently harassed families of Dafa practitioners who were forced to leave home, and caused severe mental anguish to the family members of the practitioners. For example, in order to find the whereabouts of Dafa practitioner Zhang Yan, the police came to her home multiple times within one day in September, and used all the means they could against her husband. Zhang's husband was terrified, and was hospitalized on October 10 due to his deteriorating mental condition. At this point he is unconscious and in critical condition.

Police arrested Dafa practitioner Gui Zheng while he clarified the truth. His whereabouts are unknown.

All Dafa practitioners: please send forth righteous thoughts, reject all the arrangement made by the old forces, help fellow practitioners who were illegally imprisoned to reinforce their righteous thoughts and be free as soon as possible! Meanwhile, let's study the Fa carefully and safeguard Dafa.
