[China] Attempt to Shift Blame on Falun Gong
According to inside sources, the Chinese Public Security Department predicted that five terrorist attacks would occur after the Chinese National Day, and that some people would shift the blame in order to frame Falun Gong. We hope that fellow practitioners will send forth righteous thoughts so that the evil in other dimensions plotting these events will automatically disintegrate.
[China] Police in China Conducting Large-scale Search For Homeless Falun Dafa Practitioners
According to reliable sources, police in China plan to investigate rented houses and rooms in order to search for practitioners who were forced to become homeless to avoid illegal arrest. The police also intend to shut down or damage Falun Dafa material production sites. Currently, orders were issued in Liaoning Province, stating that before National Day, each neighborhood community and committee should compile information about the residential situation in that area and report it to the local police substation. In addition, after National Day the police are to conduct sudden illegal midnight searches on suspected houses and condos. The searches are to go on until October 25. Some time ago, the illegal so-called "probe" was carried out on every street of Shenyang City. This is intended to be a unified action, across the country. Jiang's regime will attempt to arrest all Falun Dafa practitioners who had been forced to abandon their homes to avoid persecution.
[Jiamusi City, Heilongjiang Province] Large-scale Unlawful Manhunt Results in Abduction of Many Falun Dafa Practitioners
On the evening of September 26, 2002, all the policemen in the police substations in Jiamusi City participated in a large-scale illegal manhunt for Falun Dafa practitioners. Before this action, the police had made preparations regarding where to search. When some would not yield to their demands to open up the door, they broke into those homes and forcibly captured over ten practitioners.
Below is how some practitioners were unlawfully captured:
Dong Xiuhua, female: In the middle of the night of September 26, the police knocked on her door. When nobody answered it, they climbed over the wall that surrounded her yard, broke into her home, and forcibly abducted her.
Dong Xiufang, female: In the middle of the night of September 26, the police tricked her family members into opening the door. After Dong Xiufang refused to write a so-called "statement of guarantee" [to stop practicing Falun Gong], they forcibly arrested her.
Dong Li: On the evening of September 26, the police frenziedly smashed away at the door of the home of Dong Li and Zuo Xiuyun (both are Falun Dafa practitioners). When they did not succeed in gaining entry, they then illegally broke into the house through a window. They attempted to abduct Zuo Xiuyun, but due to her steadfast resistance, it ended up in vain. They then arrested her husband, Dong Li, instead. At the time, he was only wearing his underwear, and the police didn't even allow him to put on the rest of his clothes.
Li Enju, female: On the morning of September 27, a plainclothes policeman discovered her visiting a fellow practitioner. The police then broke into that practitioner's home and forcibly kidnapped Li. However, when they tried to arrest the other practitioner, her righteous thoughts were so powerful that over ten policemen couldn't even move her a bit, and they eventually gave up.
[Wuhan City, Hubei Province] Wuhan Falun Dafa Practitioners Congratulate the Founding of the Japanese Falun Gong Association
It is a great pleasure to hear of the formal registration and establishment of the Japanese Falun Gong Association during the Fa-rectification period. This will further contribute to the promotion of Falun Dafa in Japan. The evil in other dimensions is to be completely eliminated, and the day of the Fa-rectification's arrival in the human world is drawing near. At this time, we should cultivate ourselves even more diligently by studying the Fa well, clarifying the truth to people around the world (especially making use of every possible chance to reach the people in China), and with our righteous thoughts eliminate the remaining evil in other dimensions.

[Chongqing City] The Xishanping Forced Labor Camp Tortures Falun Dafa Practitioners
The Xishanping Forced Labor Camp is extremely brutal when they transport practitioners from the training team (Team No.11) to the 1st Group of Team No. 7. They are even more vicious than when transporting death row prisoners, who are commonly the treated the worst. The police asked two drug addicts to cuff a practitioner's hands from behind and lift them up to a height such that the practitioner's head was almost pressed to the ground. It is very hard to walk in such a manner, yet, if the practitioner walked a bit slower, he would be dragged along the ground, which happened and was witnessed by residents along the road. People who didn't know what was happening thought they were dragging criminals to carry out the death penalty.
[Baicheng City, Jilin Province] Falun Dafa Practitioner Liu Yang Is Illegally Sentenced to 8 Years in Jail
Recently, Liu Yang, a Falun Dafa practitioner, was illegally sentenced to jail for 8 years by the People's Court in Baiyang City. Before the trial, his family members had sought help from various sources. The "610 Office" and the Politics & Law Committee had promised that as long as Liu Yang turned against Falun Gong in court, signed the so-called "three statements," [note: all are statements renouncing Falun Gong], his jail sentence could be reduced or even waived. However, Liu Yang didn't change when faced with the loss of his personal interest in court. He refused to cooperate with them, and instead nobly validated Dafa. Thus, the "610 Office" and the Politics & Law Committee flew into a rage out of shame and illegally sentenced him to 8 years in jail, which is the longest sentence among practitioners in the Baicheng Area. Currently, Liu Yang has been tortured in the Baicheng Detention Center to the point of emaciation. Please pay attention to his situation.
