[Panjin City, Liaoning Province] Police Arrest Many Practitioners
Before the "16th National Congress of the Chinese Communist Party", officials operating outside the law in Panjin City, Liaoning Province arrested Dafa practitioners in large numbers. To date, 15 practitioners have been arrested. These officials have allotted 80,000 Yuan for forcing Dafa practitioners to give up practicing Falun Gong. Each work unit assigned two people to watch Dafa practitioners in that unit day and night. More than 80 people participated in persecuting Dafa practitioners.
Most who were arrested are still in detention except one who went on a hunger strike and walked out of the demons' den with righteous thoughts. We have learned that the vicious authorities first utilized hypocritical and deceitful methods, and gave the practitioners delicious food and drink to tempt them with comfort.
