[Shijiazhuang City, Hebei Province] Female Dafa Practitioner Zhang Man has Been Without Food and Water for Nearly a Month. Her Life is in Extreme Danger
In October 2000, Miss Zhang Man, a female practitioner in her twenties from Shijiazhuang City, was put into Shijiazhuang City's Forced Labor Camp. In order to protest the inhumane persecution in the labor camp and to request unconditional release, she has stopped drinking water or eating any food for 27 days. On the tenth day of her hunger strike, the wardens in the labor camp asked her family to visit her. At that time she was very weak. However, she is still not released.
Presently, Miss Zhang Man is still protesting with her life. She is in critical condition right now. We call on people from all walks of life to rescue the persecuted practitioner with all possible means.

[Shenyang City, Liaoning Province] Police Unlawfully Arrest Practitioner Ms. Wang Zhirong
At noon on January 23, 2002, police from the Political Security Group in the Heping District broke into the 60-year-old female practitioner Wang Zhirong's home and arrested her. We heard that this arrest was related to another illegal arrest. Between 5:00 P.M. and 6:00 P. M. on Sunday, January 20, 2002 policemen illegally broke into a practitioner's home in Yijing Street in the Zhongheping District. A practitioner who is about 20 years old was arrested on spot, together with two other practitioners (a male and a female, 48 and 46 years old, respectively) who jumped off the building. Their situation is unclear.
[Qingyuan City, Guangdong Province] Police Arrest Many Practitioners Without Due Process of Law
At the end of 2001, many practitioners were arrested due to doing some Dafa truth-clarifying work in Qingyuan City, Guangdong Province. Huang Qiumei, Peng Sailian, Lai Miaochi and Liu Huanlian were unlawfully sentenced to one-year of imprisonment. Some other practitioners whose names are unknown were put into a forced labor camp.
Policemen from Qingyuan City forcibly took practitioners Wu Changru and Wu Yihong away from their work place, a factory in Dongwan City because they distributed truth-clarifying materials. Their whereabouts are unknown.
[Longkou City, Shandong Province] Arrest of Practitioners Wang Dongming and Wei Hong from Longkou City
On January 23, 2002, officers from Yantai City's Police Department found some Dafa truth- clarifying discs in practitioner Wang Dongming's workplace. Therefore the police confiscated the computer from his workplace. They arrested Wei Hong and his girlfriend, also a practitioner, that same night. Mr. Wei Wei, Wei Hong's brother, had to live in exile as he was illegally put on a wanted list in the city.
The reason for the policemen finding Mr. Dongming's IP address is his accessing the Internet. The authorities ordered policemen in Yantai City to arrest the practitioners.
In 2000, after officers in Shandong Province's Police Department identified practitioner Jiang Xunliang's IP address, his computer was confiscated when he was sending emails from his home in Longkou City.
[Lanzhou City, Gansu Province] Police at Unit 7 of the No. 1 Forced Labor Camp Use an Underground Food Storage Vault as a Chamber of Horrors
I had been sent to Unit 7 of Lanzhou City's No. 1 Forced Labor Camp because I firmly insisted on practicing Falun Gong. There was an underground food storage room in Unit 7, but they used it as a torture chamber for abusing practitioners. Each detained practitioner was forced by ruffians to slander Dafa and Teacher when he (or she) was first brought in there. If the practitioners did not give up practicing, they would be forced to stand still and not be allowed to sleep. If practitioners still firmly believed in Dafa they would be hung by their handcuffs in this chamber of horrors. If the practitioners still wouldn't give up, they then would be sent to the "underground food storage room" to be cruelly beaten. Practitioners were beaten so badly that injuries covered their bodies. Sometimes they were beaten to the point of losing the ability of taking care of themselves.
The most typical example is that of a female practitioner named Wang Lianzhen who cannot take care of herself yet. She needs others to feed her, dress her and help her to the restroom. Another female practitioner named Sun Lanping was beaten to lose her ability to take care of herself for over a month. Ruffians used scarves to cover practitioners' eyes and mouths when they beat practitioners. Usually after several hours' torture, practitioners would end up suffering from breathing difficulties. Sometimes the leader of Unit 7 would exhort ruffians in person to beat practitioners. Further investigation needs to be conducted. Practitioners being tortured are still detained there.
Officials at Unit 7 also used drug addicts to pretend to be practitioners to deceive other practitioners. There is a propaganda picture posted on the factory bulletin board that shows that a practitioner receiving oxygen therapy in the hospital is being taken care of by the factory leaders. The "patient's" name is Gao Chunmei, who is actually a drug addict, detained at No. 2 Forced Labor Camp for three years of forced labor. The picture is still posted on the board now.
[Da'an City, Jilin Province] Practitioners Send Forth Righteous Thoughts to Eliminate an Evil Picture Show
In early January of this year, Liu Yunhua, the new selected secretary of Da'an City's Political and Judiciary Committee organized a picture show slandering Dafa to gain her political credit. When practitioners heard about this, they sent forth righteous thoughts at each hour. Some practitioners posted lots of Dafa truth-clarifying signs around the showroom at this education center. As a result, as no one went to the show for the whole morning. The city government issued an order for each work unit to assign five people to come and view the displays. The people who were assigned all took time off saying they had things to do. In the afternoon a lot of practitioners arrived at the front of the center to send forth righteous thoughts. Among them, three elderly practitioners stood in front of the poster to send forth righteous thoughts together. After three or four minutes, two persons walked out from the center and one of them kicked the poster down and took it away. Dafa practitioners' righteous thoughts eradicated the evil force's attempt to persecute Dafa and the general public.
[China] Jiang's Regime Issues the Latest New Law: "Learning Dafa Is Considered Committing a Crime"
On January 24, 2002, Da'an City's government authorities of Jilin Province held a leadership conference above the "bureau" level. During this conference, an evil command from Jiang's group was delivered, "Learning Dafa is considered committing a crime, and the practitioners will be sentenced once they are arrested." To carry out this latest decree, each work unit has to submit a list of names, set up quotas and prepare for illegal arrests to reopen brainwashing classes. Right now the evils are plotting strategy. It is known that this action will last into April. The order is ruthless and evil. We suggest to the practitioners to send forth the purest and firmest righteous thoughts at the scheduled time; totally negate the arrangement of the old evil forces.
[Northeast China] Police Officers Resist Persecution Orders; Do Their Jobs Passively
As the Fa-rectification process is moving rapidly forward, people are becoming more and more sober-minded. Here is an example: In a town in northeast China, self-sticking Fa-rectification posters and signs are put up everywhere in the streets. One day, the town's police department director ordered his officers to tear the posters down, but nobody felt like doing it -- they were all afraid of receiving retributions. They said, "Tearing Dafa signs down is official business. Receiving retribution, however, is a personal matter." Finally, the last arriving police officer was assigned to do this task. Carrying a bucket, he strolled around on the streets and at last came back without getting anything done. This shows that people are awakening; they no longer obey the instructions ordered by some of the scoundrels in Jiang's and Luo's regime.
[Shuangyashan City, Heilongjiang Province] Jianshan District Court Authorities Attempt to Pervert the Law and Persecute Practitioners
On Monday, January 28, 2002 at about 1:00 p.m., Jianshan District Court officials in Shuangyashan City plan to unlawfully hold court proceedings and sentence practitioners. Those practitioners who see this news, please collectively send forth righteous thoughts at 9:00 p.m. on 27th and 5:00 a.m., 6:00 a.m., 7:00 a.m., and 1:00 p.m. on 28th, to eliminate all the evils behind Jianshan District Court authorities' motives. Let's completely resist the arrangements of the old forces and have them release the practitioners.
[Shanghai City] Five Shanghai Practitioners Express Their Solemn Declarations at the Qingpu Brainwashing Class
During the Spring Festival last year, agents 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] in Shanghai and members of the local police sent some determined practitioners to Qingpu brainwashing class. From among those, five practitioners wrote these so-called "repentance letters." [to give up practicing Falun Gong] After they returned home, through studying the Fa, they realized the seriousness of their mistake. The five practitioners went together to the Qingpu brainwashing class and firmly declared, "We will resolutely cultivate Dafa and what we said and did before is now invalid!"
The wicked guards at the brainwashing class were very flustered and said, "We have reported you to the higher authorities as "models," now as you all come back and tell us it is not valid anymore. We have to report you again to the Shanghai Police Department."
[Beijing] Tuanhe Forced Labor Camp Police Brutally Persecute National Politics & Law University Student Gong Chengxi
On January 21, 2002, Minghui.Net reported that Beijing's Tuanhe Forced Labor Camp authorities set up a compulsory brainwashing team to cruelly persecute students Zhao Ming, Gong Chengxi and other practitioners. Among them, Mr. Gong Chengxi is an undergraduate student of the class of 1997 at the National Politics & Law University. In November 1999, Mr. Gong went to Tiananmen Square to validate Dafa and was subsequently suspended by the university for one year. On July 22, 2000 he unfurled a banner to validate Dafa on Tiananmen Square and was later escorted back to the university. In November 2000 he was caught while distributing Dafa truth-clarifying materials and afterwards sent to the Tuanhe Forced Labor Camp. Mr. Gong suffered brutal tortures at that place. Minghui.Net once reported that the Tuanhe Labor Camp guards insulted and tortured him with indecent means. However, he has always been steadfastly cultivating and keeping a righteous faith in Dafa. We hope practitioners who read this news will send forth righteous thoughts to help him walk out of the devil's den as soon as possible.

[Beijing] Beijing's Police Restrict Internet Access
Authorities of a certain district in Beijing forced some Internet bars to connect their computers to the police department's computers and installed software called "Meiping" on these computers. They require people to show their ID and employee certificates before allowing them to use the computers. The owners and managers of the Internet bars and people who came to surf the web all complained about this. We hope all Dafa disciples collectively send forth righteous thoughts and disable this software and these devices that impede the spread of truth of Dafa.
