1. [Nong'an, Jilin Province] Police from the First Section of the Changchun Public Security Bureau Kidnap More Than 50 Dafa Practitioners
Recently the First Section of the Changchun Public Security Bureau entered Nong'an and stationed themselves there. They arrested and kidnapped local Dafa practitioners from a wide area, installed special monitoring equipment and assigned people in the Telecommunication Department to tap Dafa practitioners' phone calls, creating tension and an atmosphere of terror just before the Chinese Spring Festival. The following practitioners have been kidnapped: Cao Yali (female), Ms. Guo, Zhang Dianrong, Gao Feng, Ms. Zhao, etc. One Dafa materials site has been destroyed. A male and a female practitioner were also kidnapped and taken away from nine-year-old practitioner Jiang Ning's home. The police also took away Jiang Ning and her grandma from their home. Jiang Ning has since been released.
In the rural areas, the situation is much worse. Dafa practitioners have been beaten in their own homes. In Nong'an more than 50 practitioners have been kidnapped.
2. [Jilin Province] Police Plan to Begin a Wide Arrest
Reliable sources in Songyuan and Jiutai, in the province of Jilin (and possibly nationwide) report police will start a wide range search and arrest of Dafa practitioners from their homes starting on the evening of February 9, 2002. Let's send out righteous thoughts together to eliminate this arrangement.
3. [Zhanjiang, Guangdong Province] Students from Zhanjiang Oceanology University Are Illegally Sentenced Up to Thirteen Years
Practitioner Chen Xiangqian, a resident of Maoming City, was a student at Zhanjiang Oceanology University (He was dismissed by the university because of his belief of Falun Dafa). Chen Xiangqian and He Gengqing were illegally detained for going to Beijing to appeal for Falun Dafa. They were arrested again in early 2001 for making and distributing Falun Dafa truth-clarifying materials. They were sentenced recently: thirteen years for Chen Xiangqian, eleven years for He Gengqing, five years for Ms. Chen. They are currently being detained in Maoming City 1st Detention Center.
Let's send out the righteous thoughts to eliminate all the evil elements behind the persecution of imprisoned Dafa practitioners, and help them return to the Fa rectification early.
4. [Longjing City, Jilin Province] Retired Female Teacher from Longjing 4th Middle School Liang Xiuzhen Has Been Detained for Long Time
Liang Xiuzhen is a 53 years old female teacher has been detained in Longjing Detention Center for half a year.
Liang Xiuzhen is a retired teacher from Longjing City 4th Middle School. On January 3, 2001, she went to Beijing to appeal for Falun Dafa. The Politic and Security Department (PSD) of Longjing Public Security Bureau applied to a higher authority to sentence her for one-year re-education through forced labor. Later PSD sent her to Changchun Heizuizi Forced Labor Camp. The labor camp denied her admission because she was found to have high blood pressure during the physical exam. She was returned to the local detention center. After being detained for a period of time, she was released and fined 3,000 Yuan [Chinese currency, the monthly salary for an average Chinese urban worker is about 500 Yuan].
On July 20, 2001, Longjing City Public Security Bureau started a wide range arrest of Dafa practitioners. They arrested all the "important" practitioners on their blacklist. Liang Xiuzhen was also arrested and remains there.
During the detention, somehow, the Politic and Security Department sent Liang Xiuzhen to take a physical exam in Yanbian Hospital. She was found to suffer from high blood pressure. But they did not treat it.
Liang Xiuzhen's current health situation has worsened. She is pale, slow to respond to physical stimuli and appears to suffer from arrested development.
We call for kindhearted people to help and support Liang Xiuzhen.

8. [Changchun City, Jilin Province] Public Security Bureau Uses Defaming Falun Gong Displaying Boards to Arrest Dafa Practitioners
On February 5, 2002, Changchun City Public Security Bureau made three display boards defaming teacher and Dafa. They hung them on the side of a building on Renmin Road near the City Public Security Bureau. They arrested Dafa practitioners by waiting around the area and looking for anyone who came up to tear down the boards. The bureau had ordered all police to wear plainclothes and take three shifts daily to arrest practitioners. All police complained about the order saying they did not want to receive retribution [by doing such thing] around the time of the Spring Festival. The organizers were forced to recruit ten or so male and female students from Changchun City Police School to do the job. Many practitioners kept on sending righteous thoughts and on February 6, 2002, the display boards were taken down.

18. [Mainland China] Alarmed but with no Danger, A Fa-Rectification Story
Around 2:00pm on January 18, 2002, a fellow practitioner and I went to some street to post Dafa banners. A person in black found me. He did not see my fellow practitioner, sending forth righteous thoughts off to one side. But I was held back. The man in black said: "Tell me why you are posting those banners?" I said: "I'm almost 60 years old. Why do I do this Fa-rectification work in risk of my life? My teacher asks me to come to save you." The man said: "What should I do?" I said: "Release me, then you will be saved, please leave yourself this opportunity to be saved." The man would not listen to me. He opened his cell phone in an attempt to arrest me. I thought that I should not cooperate and I have to stop him, stop him making the phone call. At the same time, I sent forth righteous thoughts: Teacher, please strengthen your disciple's gong, freeze this person. He became motionless. I walked away without any difficulty. Later, he left crestfallen. About 10 minutes later, my fellow practitioner also came back safely. She had posted all the Dafa banners left on telegraph poles. She said: "I really experienced the power of a Dafa disciple's righteous thoughts. None of our Dafa banners were removed." It is just like Teacher said: "However strong the righteous thoughts are, that's how great the power is." ("Also in a Few Words").
