On September 15, 2002, a daylong secret meeting was organized by the "610 Office" [a bureau specifically created by the Chinese government to persecute Falun Gong. It has absolute power over each level of administration in the Party, as well as over the political and judiciary branches] of Qionglai City, Sichuan Province, which was attended by officials at different levels of government. By September 16, a new rumor was being spread: fiber optic cables were being cut by Falun Gong practitioners to broadcast Falun Gong programs. However, the truth is that the TV broadcasts in Qionglai have not been interrupted, not even for a minute. These were just new trumped-up accusations to justify the persecution of Falun Gong practitioners.
In the evening of September 16, more than one hundred policemen from the Qionglai Public Security Bureau started a large scale illegal search, kidnapping and arresting Falun Gong practitioners and their relatives. Below are a few of their crimes:
Dafa practitioner Xue Yuzhen and her husband Wang Shuqing (who does not practice Falun Gong) were arrested and taken from their home. Xue was tortured to death on September 18. Wang was tortured as well, and he is now under emergency care in the Number 3 Hospital of Qionglai.
Policemen surrounded the home of Dafa practitioners Deng Jiaquan and Wen Weiping. They failed to break in, even after trying for two hours. Later they finally broke down the door with an axe and a large hammer. The elderly couple was beaten before being kidnapped, but they still resolutely shouted, "Falun Dafa is good!" More and more onlookers witnessed this and many shed tears, recognizing the evil nature of the police's actions.
Dafa practitioner Gu Guoxin, a doctor, had his home searched and was arrested for no reason. Gu's brother, who does not practice Falun Gong, was also arrested because he is the relative of a Falun Gong practitioner. They were both tortured for a long time at the Linqiong Police Station. On September 18, the police broke one of Gu Guoxin's arms during a beating.
Dafa practitioner Li Wanxu is also a doctor. Policemen in the Linqiong Station attacked him with various instruments of torture to force him to say that he would not practice Falun Gong anymore. Li refused and was beaten unconscious. After he was revived, the police took a video of him and asked him to answer in front of the camera, "Is Falun Dafa good?" He said without hesitation: "Very good!"
Yuan Yongyi, a female Dafa practitioner, was kidnapped from her home by 6 policemen.
A group of policemen and village officials surrounded the home of Gu Zhiguang, who lives in Group 1 of Heihu Village, Sangyuan Township, Qionglai City. The police arrested Gu and ransacked his home. Later, when the police car became stuck in a ditch, Gu was able to escape. The police have mobilized many officers to find him again.
Policemen ignored many legal procedures when arresting Dafa practitioners, and found no valid evidence in their searches, but they brutally tortured those Falun Gong practitioners at will. In some cases they even beat up some of those Falun Gong practitioner's relatives.
We appeal again to all the governments in the world, the United Nations, international human rights organizations, and kind hearted people everywhere: please help to rescue these millions of innocent people who are being subjected to brutal persecution by the Jiang regime.
