[Jinzhou, Liaoning Province] Falun Dafa Practitioners Jiang Hailan and Li Renjie From Heishan County Are Illegally Arrested
At 11 a.m. on November 10, 2002, Zhang Yulin, a former practitioner who has betrayed Dafa, led the police to a Dafa material production site in Heishan County. The police illegally arrested practitioners Jiang Hailan and Li Renjie and confiscated a computer, a color printer, and many VCDs. The police videotaped the scene. Xu, Vice-Chairman of the Heishan Police Department punched Jiang Hailan in the face when he refused to be videotaped. Jiang firmly resisted the evil. When taken to the police department, he took one handcuff off, jumped out of the third floor of the police building, and landed outside the courtyard wall that was 6 meters away. He tried to stand up and run but fell instead. In Heishan County Hospital, he was found to have fractures in his ankles and left hip as well as abdominal bleeding. Despite the pain, Jiang Hailan continued to clarify the truth to the police, the doctor, and the patients. Many people in the hospital admired him for his courage. Currently, Jiang Hailan is still in the hospital's Orthopedic Trauma section with a plainclothes police officer watching him in the room.
[Jiamusi City, Heilongjiang Province] Xigemu Forced Labor Camp Brutally Tortures Falun Dafa Practitioners
The Xigemu Forced Labor Camp forced practitioners to wear prisoners' clothing and tortured those who resisted. They handcuffed eight practitioners for 14 days in a row -- hands in the front during the daytime and hands in the back at night. Practitioners were ordered to sit on small stools for long periods of time, causing unbearable pain in the buttocks. They did not allow the practitioners to put on extra clothes when the weather became cold. Sometimes, they did not let the practitioners sleep. Using police batons, they brutally beat those practitioners who refused to do labor. Some practitioners' buttocks turned black and blue. One practitioner lost consciousness three times from the beating. Another practitioner started having problems with his heart from the beating but was still handcuffed to the bed.
The labor camp authorities forced the practitioners to watch videotapes that slandered Dafa 18 hours a day for 9 days in a row. They cuffed the practitioners' hands behind their backs with one hand over the shoulder and the other hand against the lower back in an attempt to force them to write a statement promising to quit practicing Falun Gong. Some practitioners lost consciousness from the pain and the police physically forced their hands to write the statement against their wills. Many practitioners are enduring extreme pain.

[Qionghai City, Hainan Province] The Qionghai Police Department Uses the People's Money to Arrest Falun Dafa Practitioners
The Qionghai Police Department booked hotel rooms for four to five police officers while hunting for those practitioners who have left home to avoid the persecution before the Sixteenth Party Congress. The police have spent more than 100,000 Yuan [Chinese currency, the monthly salary for an average Chinese urban worker is about 500 Yuan] overall in this effort. They distributed the practitioners' photos to all the local police stations and residential offices. They said that the order from a higher authority is, "Get each practitioner, dead or alive."
[Qiongshan City, Hainan Province] The Police Send Falun Dafa Practitioners to a Brainwashing Center

On November 1, 2002, 20 to 30 police officers from the city's section of Politics and Security and the Wenzhuanglu Police Station went to Li Qi's home in the Town of Fucheng and wanted to take her to the brainwashing center. Li Qi sent forth righteous thoughts inside the room and refused to open the door. The evil people were not able to take her because of her strong resistance.
[Weifang, Shandong Province] Personnel From the Diesel Motor Factory and the "610 Office" Send Falun Dafa Practitioner Zhang Tongmei to a Brainwashing Center
Zhang Tongmei worked at a Diesel Motor Factory and was fired because she persisted in practicing Falun Gong. Her family was fined 5000 Yuan and her husband, who does not practice Falun Gong, was also involved. Although Zhang is not affiliated with the factory, the authorities from the factory colluded with the police from "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] to persecute her. On October 23, they sent her to a brainwashing center in Kuiwen District. They also threatened to fire her husband and deducted several thousand Yuan from his salary as a fee for the brainwashing. This worsened the family's already difficult financial situation. Zhang has a child at home who is a second-grader.

On July 15, 2002, Fan Yongjie, the deputy head of the squad created to detain Dafa practitioners, ordered practitioner Wang Qunli to stand for several hours and forcefully tried to brainwash him. Fan often threatened and tortured practitioners. Once he shocked practitioner Feng Fugui's private area with an electric baton and heaped verbal abuse upon him at the same time.
On July 19, 2002, practitioner Li Zengmin handed in a statement saying that everything he wrote under pressure was invalid. Liu Guohua, the head of the squad, and other police officers, including Wang Yongming, slapped Li's face with shoes, and punched and kicked him. Li's face became distorted and unrecognizable from the beatings.
On August 5, 2002, practitioner Wang Wei refused to forge the prisoners' work record for 2001 and was brutally beaten by the police. His cries of pain could be heard plainly by everyone in the surrounding area.
[Fushun, Liaoning Province] The Crimes of A Person Who Betrayed Dafa
Fang Guiyun is a former Falun Gong practitioner who has betrayed Dafa and became a spy for the evil. She has caused the arrest of many practitioners and the destruction of a Dafa materials production site. She continues to deceive the practitioners and gains their trust by distributing Dafa materials to them. She gathered practitioners in the name of "experience sharing" and then called the police to arrest the practitioners. She is very good at disguising herself and betraying people's trust. She is currently traveling around to obtain information about practitioners.
[Jiamusi City, Heilongjiang Province] Sand and Dust In the Early Winter
On November 11, 2002, sand and dust appeared in great quantities in the Jiamusi area. It also snowed at the same time. It got so dark that people had to turn on their lights by 2 p.m. A layer of yellow sand covered the snow on the ground. It is rare to see sand and dust storms together in the early winter.
Recently, staff at the Jiamusi Forced Labor Camp wildly tortured Falun Dafa practitioners. The sand and dust phenomenon is heaven's warning to these people. Those who persecuted kind people always met with karmic retribution sooner or later.
