[Anshan City, Liaoning Province] Nineteen Practitioners Walk Out of a Detention Center
About 7am on January 27, 2002, nineteen practitioners who were illegally detained in Anshan City No. 3 Detention Center, Liaoning Province, walked out of the detention center using only their righteous beliefs and righteous thoughts.
Earlier that morning the 19 female practitioners found their cell unlocked, so they simply walked out of the dormitory building. Facing a high wall and three locked electronic doors, they turned their palms upright to send forth righteous thoughts and silently recited the verses. They then opened the three doors with their bare hands. Thus, nineteen practitioners were able to walk out of the detention center openly and in a dignified manner.
As a result of their escape, however, police from Liaoning Provincial Police Bureau have arrived in force at Anshan city to search for those 19 women. Practitioners who see this news please send your righteous thoughts to eliminate the evils.
[China] The Greatness of Righteous Thoughts
On January 19, 2002, eight practitioners from our city got on the train to Beijing with compassionate and righteous thoughts. Along the way, we sent forth the righteous thoughts together to clear any obstacles in our path. We felt as if we had melted into the Fa, and Teacher's words echoed in our minds, "The Fa can reveal all attachments, the Fa can eradicate all evils, the Fa can expose and dispel all lies, and the Fa can strengthen righteous thoughts." ("Deter Interference") and "The great Fa and the great epoch are forging the greatest Enlightened Beings." ("The Disciples' Magnificence")
About 10:30 the next morning we arrived at Tiananmen Square. We eight practitioners walked around the square silently reciting the verses to send forth righteous thoughts. We walked through Tiananmen Gate and entered the Forbidden City. Under our strong righteous thoughts, the evil fled immediately. We used the divine powers that Teacher gave us to stop all of the vicious policemen from evil actions. From our hearts, all eight of us chanted loudly, "Falun Dafa is good! Falun Dafa is a righteous Fa! Restore the good name of our Teacher! Restore the good name to Dafa disciples!" Our chanting was loud, echoing all around Tiananmen Square. When the oblivious policemen finally woke up, eight practitioners already had returned, safe under Teacher's care.
[China] A Practitioner from Japan is Arrested While Appealing in China
I went to Japan in 1993. In 1996 I came back to China to take care of some health problems. That year I obtained Falun Dafa in Weihai city. My passport, with a valid visa for Japan, was valid till October 2002.
In January of 2000, I went back to China to appeal for Falun Gong. Just before I went back, I had mailed some experience sharing articles to China but they were confiscated by the Chinese authorities. Previously I had mailed the magazine "Falun Dafa in Japan" to practitioners in China, who passed it among themselves until the authorities discovered and seized it. Because of this I was illegally detained and my passport was confiscated. The day I was released, two men from the Shandong Provincial Police Bureau came and tried to use my passport as bait to convince me to spy for them. I refused. So I was escorted back to Changchun City, Jilin Province. In August 2000, I went to the police bureau to request my passport. They replied that it had already been cancelled.
When I made the decision to come back to China, I was full of love for our motherland. But that is not what I got from our country. Now I am not allowed to return to my home in Japan. My husband is alone in Japan and I have to take care of our child in China, alone. It is very difficult for both of us. When my husband came to visit me, all my family and relatives were worried that he also might be detained. We don't feel safe in China any more.
[Zhumadian, Henan Province] "610 Office" Plots to Frame Falun Gong for Homicidal Cases
Recently, we were surprised to hear that a series of homicides occurred in the Zhumadian area, Henan province. Thugs have killed many innocent people and no one dares to walk the streets after eight o'clock. Families lock their doors securely and the villagers have hired people to patrol the streets all night long. But the "610 Office" has used those cases to slander Falun Dafa.
Practitioners who see this message please send righteous thoughts to eliminate the evil.
[Daqing City, Heilongjiang Province] Crimes of the Qingyangshan Police Station
On the night of January 22, 2002, the director of Qingyangshan Police Substation named Han led a few thugs to ransack practitioner Zhang Yuzhen's house. They took away two tape recorders and a VCD player and detained Zhang Yuzhen (51 years old) at the Daqing City Detention Center. They also took away Zhang's husband Zhang Guixiang (over 60 years old) who doesn't practice Falun Gong at all. Zhang Guixiang is still being detained in Datong District Detention Center.
[Liaoning Province] Policemen Scold Informers, "Get Lost! Don't Make This Immoral Money."
In a public document, rogues in a county in Liaoning Province enticed local residents with monetary rewards to inform on Falun Dafa practitioners who clarified the true facts about Falun Gong. Authorities at higher levels used this strategy in an attempt to prevent practitioners from clarifying the truth, which would eventually make the sentient beings to be unable to be saved.
When this document had been printed, the neighborhood community offices asked all residents and villagers to pick up copies. However, not a single person went to pick up this document. This was the result of effective truth clarification by Dafa practitioners in this area. As a last resort, evil people in charge of the county forced students in elementary and middle schools to take copies of this document home to their parents. Many people threw it into the trash as soon as they saw it. Most residents in the county refused to show interest in what the rogues were doing. A handful of people went to the police station to tell on practitioners, but were scolded by police officers who knew the truth about Falun Gong, "You're in need of money? Don't make this immoral money. Get out! We have no money for you, and we don't have time for these things."
[Shaanxi Province] Two Falun Dafa Practitioners are Arrested
Wang Fuling is 60 years old. Police officers conducted an illegal search of her home on December 12, 2001. All truth-clarifying materials were confiscated. She was forcibly taken away on the same day and has been held in detention ever since. Her deposit receipts and several thousand yuan in cash were also taken by the police. [The average monthly salary of an urban worker is about 500 yuan.] This deprived her children of savings to live on. Wang Fuling's daughter then went to Falun Gong practitioners that she knew to ask for money. If her demand was not met, she threatened to reveal the pracitioner's name to the police substation. Falun Dafa practitioner Yan Anfang is in her fifties. When Yan was unable to meet Wang's daughter's demand only one time, Yan's name was given to the police substation. On December 26, 2001, Yan Anfang was illegally taken away and her home was illegally searched. Yan has since remained in detention. Yan's family members have not been allowed to visit her. We call on Dafa practitioners to take the Fa as Teacher and eliminate the evil factors behind all this.
[Nanjing City, Jiangsu Province] Falun Dafa Practitioner Ma Ailing Detained for Over One Year

She was an outstanding employee in her work unit. She went to Beijing to safeguard the Fa in October 2000. She was arrested in December of the same year. She has been illegally held in Nanjing City Detention Center. It has been learned that, since she no longer has a source of income, her life in the detention center has been extremely hard.
[Harbin City, Heilongjiang Province] Evil Acts of the Xinhua Police Substation in Daoli District
Around 7:30 PM on January 23, 2002, police officers from Xinhua Police Substation in the Daoli District in Harbin City abducted Falun Dafa practitioner Wang Defu. Wang Defu, about 60--years old, lives at Guxiang in Harbin. The neighborhood community Office first sent in people to see if he was at home. Soon the Xinhua Police Substation sent out four police officers to Wang's home. Wang Defu refused to cooperate with the evil forces. Four more police officers were sent over to take Wang away. Without any reason given, they sent Wang to Zero-Kilometer Detention Center in Daoli District.
Wang's mother, who is over 80 years old, paralyzed, and lives at home, now has no one to take care of her. Wang also has two children who have suffered from chronic illnesses for years. Wang's arrest has made the already difficult financial situation in his family even worse.
[Heilongjiang Province] "610 Office" Launches Large-Scale Campaign of Arrests
Under the recent instigation 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), police on January 25, 2002, started a large-scale campaign to search for and arrest Falun Dafa practitioners who previously had been served so-called "arrest warrants." The approach the authorities take is to go directly to a practitioner's home and ask only one question: "Does the practitioner still cultivate [Falun Gong]?" If the answer is yes, the practitioner is immediately placed under arrest.
So far, in the small scope of those practitioners we know, there have been one in Daoli, two in Daowai, one in Dynamics, one in the Cement Factory, and one in the Furnace Factory, making a total of six practitioners who have been arrested.
