[Tianjin] Appeal for the Urgent Rescue of Falun Dafa Practitioners Who Have been on a Hunger Strike for Over Five Months in Tianjin City's Shuangkou Forced Labor Camp
Authorities in Tianjin City's Shuangkou Forced Labor Camp brutally torture Dafa practitioners. As they feared their crimes being exposed, the authorities have extended practitioners' detention terms. No practitioners have been released. This information could not be passed out until recently. Some sketchy, incomplete news was brought out with difficulty with the appeal to "expose the evil here as soon as possible."
The number of practitioners being illegally detained in Tianjin City's Shuangkou Forced Labor Camp is unclear. From August 26, 2001 to February 14, 2002, they had already been on a hunger strike for five months. Their collective hunger strike continues. Practitioners' lives are in extreme danger. Some practitioners have been tortured to death. As the authorities of the camp block all information, the precise details are unknown.
[Wuhan City, Hubei Province] Torture of Dafa Practitioner Mr. Peng Weisheng, Father of Practitioner Mr. Peng Min, Who was Tortured to Death
After his detention term had been extended for half a year, Dafa practitioner Mr. Peng Weisheng, the father of the younger practitioner Mr. Peng Min, a victim who was tortured to death in Wuhan City, was currently transferred to a brainwashing class for further torture. Though two of his family members were tortured to death and he is suffering from brutal mental persecution and physical torture, Dafa practitioner Mr. Peng Weisheng thoroughly manifested his rock-solid, righteous belief. In the vicious Hewan Forced Labor Camp he was always determined in Dafa. He is a credible, qualified, genuine disciple of Teacher.
In the middle of February 2002, some Dafa practitioners from Wuhan City went to appeal in Beijing. It is said that fifteen practitioners, including Ms. Gao Bizhen and Ms. Wu Keyan, have been illegally arrested.
[Changchun City, Jilin Province] Policemen in Changchun City's No.3 Detention Center Tortured Me with the Method called "Running in Chains"
In June 2001, I was illegally detained in Changchun City's No.3 Detention Center as I posted Dafa truth-clarifying banners. On the 17th day of detention I said I wanted to practice the Falun Gong exercises. Guard Li Xuesen said practice was prohibited in the detention center. I said I would launch a hunger strike if I were not allowed to practice. Guard Li Xuesen the put a "super shackle" on me, which weighed about 42 pounds and is intended for felons or death row inmates. He connected the handcuffs and shackles, which they named, "running in chains." If a person was put on this torture device, he could not sit straight, stand up or lie down only bend over. If a person shackled this way wanted to use the bathroom, it would be necessary for others to drag him in, assist him and clean him up. The suffering and humiliation could not be expressed with words. I reasoned with them, and the director and section chief had a talk with me. I took that opportunity to clarify the truth to the policemen and criminals on the spot. As the director was there, other policemen and criminals dared not stop me. They all listened to me. The director said nothing. In the end, he said, "You had better tell the criminals the principles to be a good person. Let them be good people."
[Changchun City, Jilin Province] Brutal Torture of Dafa Practitioners in the Weizigou Forced Labor Camp
Fourteen Dafa practitioners are illegally imprisoned at the Weizigou Forced Labor Camp in Changchun City. Four criminals were assigned to monitor each single practitioner. The authorities did not permit practitioners to talk with each other, not even to use the bathroom at the same time. Practitioners had to sit on a bench for more than 12 hours a day. Practitioners Wang Mingli and Bai Xiaojun have been illegally detained here for 19 months already and they are still not released. Their detention terms had previously been prolonged by seven months. We hope people from all walks of life support these practitioners and help bring about the release of these unlawfully detained practitioners.
[Shuangyashan City, Heilongjiang Province] Illegal Internment of Nine Practitioners
At 4:00 p.m. on February 21, 2002, officers Chen and Pan, from the police section of Shuangyashan City's Mine Bureau led three or four persons waiting outside to the Dafa practitioner couple Mr. Sun Hui and Mrs. Hu Qili's home. When Mr. Sun Hui went out to fetch cabbages, they immediately arrested him. They grabbed the house key from him and went into his home to kidnap his wife, Mrs.Hu Qili. On the second day the couple was illegally sent to a forced labor camp. They had to leave a ten-year old girl home, under nobody's care, to fend for herself.
Male practitioners who were sent to a forced labor camp include the gentlemen named Pan Xingkun, Deng Zhenkui, Chen Yu and Sun Hui. They were sent to the Suihua Forced Labor Camp. Female practitioners, including Fei Jinrong, Hu Qili, Du Xiuqin and two other unknown female practitioners were sent to Jamusi City's Forced Labor Camp.
The responsible person for this case were:
Yu Yongjiang, director of the "610 Office" [An agency specifically created to persecute Falun Gong, with absolute power over each level of administration in the Party and all other political and judiciary systems] in Shuanyashan City, 011-86-469-4282610 (H);

[Tieling City, Liaoning Province] Recent Persecutions of Dafa Practitioners
Mr. Han Haidong is a practitioner from Tieling City of Liaoning Province. Police guards in Tieling's Forced Labor Camp and Liaoyang City's Forced Labor Camp brutally tortured Mr. Han during this long, illegal detention term. However, he was always determined to practice Dafa. On December 29, 2001 he was released. On February 10, 2002, according to an order from higher authority, officials in the Shifu Road Substation of the Tieling City Yinzhou District Police Department dispatched massive police forces to surround Mr. Han Haidong's home. Ignoring the intense objections from Mr. Han Haidong's family, policemen forcibly took Mr. Han Haidong to the police office. At present, Mr. Han Haidong is detained at Tieling City's Detention Center.
At the beginning of February 2002, practitioner Mrs. Yu Hongju and her husband, from Yinzhou District/Tieling City, were illegally put into Tieling City's Detention Center as they answered "Yes" when policemen asked whether they still practiced Falun Gong. On December 27, 2001 of the Chinese Lunar Calendar, Ms. Zhao Yali, a practitioner from Fanhe Town/Tieling County, was arrested without due process of law. A week later she was illegally sent to the notorious Masanjia Forced Labor Camp.
[Guangzhou City, Guangdong Province] Violating the Law: Facts about the "Law Education Class" in Dongshan District
The so-called "law education class (brainwashing class)" at Dongshan District of Guangzhou City is actually an illegal detention "class." At present, over ten practitioners are detained there. Three of them have been detained for over a year. Another three practitioners were forcibly sent here due to their determination to continue with Dafa after finishing the illegal forced labor terms. Some were arrested with the excuse of "having a talk" and some were arrested after writing the "solemn statement" (meaning that everything they did and said against Dafa under duress was null and void).
It was the usual sequence of mistreatments - beating, abusing practitioners and depriving them of sleep. In March 2001, Xu Jubo from the "610 Office" (an agency specifically created to persecute Falun Gong, with absolute power over each level of administration in the Party and all other political and judiciary systems) suddenly pushed practitioner Mr. Chen Ruichang downstairs when they were talking. Other practitioners were illegally detained for 15 days for requesting dismissal from the brainwashing class and unconditional release of all practitioners. From July 22 to 23, 2001, Wang Guangjie did not allow practitioner Mr. Li Jieqiang to sleep and also beat him. On November 20, Liang Tianxin deprived practitioners Mr. Liang Zhanpeng, Mr. Wu Cuifang and Mr. Li Jieqiang of sleep. Wang Guangjie, Liang Tianxin and Liang Rui often cursed practitioners. Wang Guangjie from the "610 Office," when drunk, often cursed and insulted practitioners to vent his own drunken anger.

[Harbin City, Heilongjiang Province] Kidnapping of Dafa Practitioners
At the beginning of January 2002, Dafa practitioner Mrs. Bi Limin from the Nangang District of Harbin City received a call from the city's Police Department asking her to go over there. Since then, Mrs. Bi has not returned home. On December 30, 2001, her daughter was arrested while doing certain Dafa truth-clarifying work at the Heilongjiang Commercial University. Recently, the police arrested her son, also a Dafa practitioner, at his workplace, the Shanghai liaison office of a Beijing Company, after they verified the practitioner's handwriting against a piece of Dafa truth-clarifying material. His family members have never received any notice from Shanghai City's Police Department or his work unit in Beijing. After Mrs. Bi Limin was illegally detained, the policemen ransacked her home and arrested her husband, a non-practitioner, as well. The lawless policemen even waited several days at her home, attempting to arrest Dafa practitioners who came to visit her.
On January 9, 2002, Dafa practitioner Mrs. Yang Hong from Nangang District/Harbin City was forcibly taken away by a group of gangsters who claimed to be police officers. As her husband is out of town on business most of the year, their son, a middle school student, was left alone at home. Not knowing what to do, the child has been weeping all day long.
Simultaneously, Dafa practitioner Yang Guiying and Yao Bailing from Nangang District were forcibly taken away from the stores where they worked. The police authorities also ransacked Yao Bailing's workplace and confiscated some Dafa materials.
According to internal police department news, there will be another large-scale raid before the Lantern Festival, celebrated on February 26.

[Lanzhou City, Gansu Province] A Stern Warning to Officer Xi Mingde of the Political & Security Section of the Qilihe Police Department
Xi Mingde is director of the Political & Security Section of the Qilihe Police Department. This person has extreme hatred for Dafa. He relentlessly persecuted Dafa practitioners and has committed a series of vicious crimes against them. It has now been confirmed that Xi Mingde is directly responsible for the kidnapping case of several practitioners on the eve of the Spring Festival reported a few days ago.
On the afternoon of February 10, nine Dafa practitioners held a group study and discussion in a rented room in the Guangwumen area. Mr. Zhang, a practitioner from the Qilihe District went to attend the group discussion and was secretly followed by Xi Mingde. The rented room was thus revealed, Dafa practitioners were arrested and a large amount of cash was confiscated. At present, most of the practitioners being arrested are held at the Xiguoyuan Detention Center in Lanzhou City.
