[Changchun City, Jilin Province] Officials in Changchun City's Police Department Issued an Order that "It is Permitted to Shoot to Kill Any Falun Gong Practitioners Posting Falun Gong Signs"
According to inside sources from the police department, before the Spring Festival, policemen from Changchun City's Police Department for several nights started a large-scale raid upon Falun Gong practitioners. During that raid, officials issued an order that "policemen could shoot to kill any Falun Gong practitioners who were found posting Dafa signs or hanging Dafa banners." After the order was issued, most of the policemen could not understand. They were talking with each other on this order, "What is the difference between this and the law-violations during the period of the Cultural Revolution?"
This issue reminded us that several days before, Liu Jin, head of the central "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], convened a meeting to assert the directive of suppressing Falun Gong, a meeting held in the Nanhu Hotel of Changchun City. During this meeting he angrily criticized the ineffectiveness of persecuting Falun Gong in Jilin Province. He sent down critical orders to suppress Falun Gong using all available forces. The order, "permission to shoot Falun Gong practitioners to death," was set forth at that meeting. Fortunately, after over two years of persecuting Falun Gong practitioners, most policemen have seen through the situation. They just do their work perfunctorily to keep their jobs and would not follow orders to kill people.
[Guangzhou City, Guangdong Province] Please Extend Your Concern to Female Practitioner Wen Yi Who is on a Hunger Strike
Ms. Wen Yi, 30 years old, graduated from Huanan Technology University and was an architect. Those who knew Ms. Wen Yi considered her to be a good person who was responsible in her work, kindhearted and always considerate of others. As she was sticking to her belief of "Truthfulness, Compassion and Tolerance," during the past two years policemen from Huale Street station, Dongshan District of Guangzhou City often harassed her. She was forced to leave her workplace and live in exile.
In order to force Ms. Wen Yi to give up practicing Falun Dafa, policemen from the Huadong Street precinct even forcibly took Ms. Wen Yi away from her relative's home for brainwashing. This happened on the eve of the Chinese Lunar New Year, which was the holiday for family members' reunions. To resist the persecution and wake up people's conscience, from the eve of the Chinese New Year until now, she has been on a hunger strike. As the lawless authorities ordered a news blackout, detailed information about her is unclear.
We hope all people who learn of this situation pay attention to this issue and help Ms. Wen Yi come out of the evil's den.

[Dianbai County, Guangdong Province] Mr. Wu Weiwen's Unlawful Detention in a Brainwashing Class
In October 1999, Dafa practitioner Mr. Wu Weiwen from Dianbai County/Guangdong Province was sentenced to 2 years imprisonment for practicing Falun Gong. In November 2001 he was released from the Sanshui Forced Labor Camp. As he did not give up his practice of Falun Gong, he has been detained in the brainwashing class in Maoming City's Political and Judicatory School until now. Mr. Wu Weiwen requested to go home as he has two children to look after. But one of the administrators of the Political and Judicatory School, a person named Wen, said, "No transformation, no release"(Meaning no denouncing of Falun Dafa, no release). So on February 19, 2002, Mr. Wu Weiwen went on a hunger strike to protest this injustice. His relatives also made phone calls, to reason with Wen. But Wen did not answer them. Now we have no idea about the situation of Mr. Wu.
[Huludao City, Liaoning Province] Brutal Torture of Dafa Practitioner Gu Wenqi at the Hands of Lawless Policemen from the Huludao City Zinc Company
Mr. Gu Wenqi, 36 years old, was a worker of the No. 3 Smelting Factory in Huludao City's Zinc Company in Liaoning Province. The main facts of his persecution of Dafa practitioners:
On October 20, 2000, policemen from police substation of Huludao City's Zinc Company forcibly took Mr. Gu Wenqi to a brainwashing class in the Xingcheng West District Sanatorium. Twenty-four practitioners were successively sent into this brainwashing class. Mr. Gu Wenqi wouldn't accept the inhuman torture at the brainwashing class and escaped. But policemen from the Zinc Company arrested him again and put him into Huludao City's Detention Center for "administrative internment." After almost eight days in the detention center, officers from the Zinc Company forcibly transferred him to Jinzhou Mental Hospital without notifying his family. In the mental hospital, four people tied Mr. Gu to a bed and he was forcibly given injections and drugs. They also tried to force him to write the so-called "guarantee statements" [guaranteeing never to go to Beijing to appeal for Dafa, will not associate with other Dafa practitioners and will give up their faith in Dafa]. When Mr. Gu asked the hospital director, "Do you ask your patients with mental diseases to write this guarantee statement?" The director had nothing to say and asked the authorities from the Zinc Company to pick up Mr. Gu. However, after policemen from the Zinc Company picked up Mr. Gu from Jinzhou Mental Hospital, they directly sent him to the Xingcheng Mental Hospital to continue to torture him, but the hospital authorities refused to admit Mr. Gu. Then the policemen had to release him back home. Two days after Mr. Gu returned to work, he was illegally detained in the Security Section of the Zinc Company. He was not allowed to go home for more than a month. They tried to force him to write the so-called "non-cultivation guarantee." As Mr. Gu refused, Cheng Zerong, director of the party committee in the Zinc Company, and Liu Yafen, director of the party committee office, were exasperated and issued an order to send Mr. Gu to the city police department for illegal detention and forced labor. After Mr. Gu was detained, officers from the Longgang District Police Department illegally sentenced Mr. Gu to three years of forced labor, and now he is still illegally detained in Huludao City's Forced Labor Camp.
[Chengdu City, Sichuan Province] Authorities in a Steel Factory Conspire with Policemen from the Qingbaijiang Tuanjie Police Department to Persecute Dafa Practitioners
In 2000, Dafa practitioner Mr. Deng Zongsu was illegally sentenced to one year of forced labor. On October 7, 2001, authorities in Chengdu City's Steel Factory escorted Mr. Deng back home after his one-year detention term was up. But they dispatched people to monitor Mr. Deng around the clock. On October 20, 2001, Mr. Deng planned to travel to Yunnan Province. On the same day, though, policemen tricked Mr. Deng to get off the train when he was just about to board. They claimed Mr. Deng took contraband with him at Chengdu City's South Railway Station. After they illegally body-searched Mr. Deng, they detained him for one night, although no evidence was found. On the second day he was escorted back by personnel from the Tuanjie Police Department and was detained for one month. Later, he was unexpectedly sentenced to three years of forced labor. The real reason was because Mr. Deng firmly believes in Dafa. The authorities were afraid of his appealing in Beijing. That's why the authorities in Chengdu City's Steel Factory bribed and conspired with policemen in the Tuanjie Police Department to illegally sentence Mr. Deng to three years of forced labor.
Practitioner Ms. Meng Xiao had been illegally sentenced to two years of forced labor because of her determination to Dafa. On November 16, 2001 her detention term was up. Because Ms. Meng went to her work unit to visit her colleagues and clarify the truth to them, authorities in Chengdu City's Steel Factory conspired with policemen from the Tuanjie Police Department to detain Ms. Meng for 15 days. During the detention term, authorities forced Ms. Meng to turn in her private housing property and then put her into criminal detention. On November 27 she was escorted back to her hometown in Xichong, and the authorities attempted to ask the local government people to detain Ms. Meng, but they failed. On the second day, Ms. Meng was taken back to the factory and detained in "security confinement." On January 31, 2002, she went to talk with Miao Changjiang, the factory director, about her personal freedom. However, officials in the security section of the factory, who were in charge of persecution, framed her and kidnapped her into a detention center. During the time she was detained in the factory, authorities in Chengdu City's Steel Factory again went to negotiate with her hometown government and tried their best to put Ms. Meng into imprisonment, which hurt Ms. Meng's parents again and again at her hometown.
[Hefei City, Zhejiang Province] Heavy Sentences for Dafa Practitioners Gan Hongyu and Ji Dongfeng, a Post-doctoral Couple
Gan Hongyu and Ji Dongfeng are both post-doctoral students at Zhejiang University. Because they mailed truth-clarifying flyers about Falun Gong to fellow citizens, and sent the information that practitioner Li Wei was illegally sentenced to two years of forced labor to Clearwisdom Net, they were arrested in April 2001 and were sentenced to five and six years imprisonment, respectively.
[Jining City, Shandong Province] Police Officers Extort 10,000 Yuan Ransom Money from Families of Falun Gong Practitioners
Recently, led by Liu Yalei and Guo Hongtao, several policemen from the Zhong District Police Precinct of Jining City often went to Dafa practitioners' homes to ransack houses and kidnap practitioners. When practitioners and their families asked for legal warrants, the officers shamelessly claimed, "We can arrest you Falun Gong practitioners if we want to, and no legal process is required." They also claimed, "We'll send you to forced labor if a piece of flyer is found." They also threatened practitioners "to confess." They demanded 10,000 Yuan [500 Yuan is the average monthly income in urban areas of China] as ransom money from the families of Falun Gong practitioners. They said they would send the practitioners to a forced labor camp if their families could not hand over the ransom money.

[Guangzhou City, Guangdong Province] Dafa Practitioner Ms. Zou Yuyun's Illegal Imprisonment in a Brainwashing Class
On February 9, 2000, Ms. Zou Yuyun, a Dafa practitioner from Guangzhou City, was arrested and illegally sentenced to one year of forced labor. However, authorities in the Chatou Forced Labor Camp did not release her until December 28, 2001, on the excuse that Ms. Zou is refusing to give up her belief in Falun Dafa. On the same day Ms. Zou was released, she was sent to a brainwashing class, for an unlimited detention term. This was done by policemen from the Tianhenan Street Police Station. Ms. Zou was maltreated and brutally beaten when she was detained at the Huangpu brainwashing class. At present, she is held in another brainwashing class at the Tianluhu Sanatorium, for additional detention. She is being specially monitored. Her family asked for her release. But officers from the Tianhenan Street Station rejected their request. Until now, Ms. Zou Yuyun has been detained over two years.
[Gansu Province] Lawless Policemen Say, "Give Them an Injection of Heroin if They cannot be Transformed."
In May 2001, Mr. Wang Xiaodong, a Dafa practitioner from Jiuquan City, Gansu Province went to appeal in Beijing. After he came back he was arrested in the Jiayuguan City. An abusive policemen named Li Hongfu, the leader of the vice squad, and Zhang Yanjiang beat him so brutally that bruises covered his body. But Mr. Wang Xiaodong did not give in. He insisted on practicing and during his detention went on hunger strikes three times to protest. The longest period of one of his hunger strikes was 20 days. The corrupt policemen tied him to a bed and forcibly gave him injections.
Ms. Zhou Guifang, over 60 years old, and Ms. Wang Jinxiou, over 50 years old, lived in the compound of the Yumen Sanatorium in the Jiuquan District. Recently, Ms. Zhou Guifang was suspected to have Dafa materials at home and was illegally arrested when her house was ransacked. Ms. Wang Jinxiu was illegally kidnapped when she distributed Dafa truth-clarifying materials in Jiuquan City.
When a Dafa practitioner from Yumen City/Gansu Province was imprisoned at Pingantai Forced Labor Camp in Lanzhou City, he heard three policemen said, "If they cannot be transformed, give them an injection of heroin. Let us see if they will do Falun Gong exercises or smoke opium."
[Changchun City, Jilin Province] Kidnapping of Dafa Practitioner Liang Zhenxing from the Luyuan District
On around October 1, 2001, practitioner Mr. Liang Zhenxing from Changchun City's Luyuan District was released from the Chaoyanggou Forced Labor Camp after two years of illegal imprisonment. He did not write any guarantee statements. The lawless police were scared of him. It was heard that during the New Year holiday, policemen were looking for him because they were afraid that he would go to Beijing. On February 27, 2002, Mr. Liang got a phone call from his workplace. He was asked to see a manager named Sun the next day at the Songhui Market, located nearby Kuangping Road. He was informed to come to work. At about 10 a.m. on the second day, February 28, Mr. Liang Zhenxing went to the Songhui Market according to the appointment. Suddenly three plainclothes policemen beat him and dragged him away. According to witnesses, Mr. Liang may have realized that these policemen's intent was to kidnap him. So he immediately shouted out his name and also spoke loudly, "Falun Dafa is good," "The Falun Gong practitioners are all good people," "Policemen are kidnapping me." He didn't cooperate with the illegal arrest. Several policemen exerted their utmost to drag him into a minivan, which was already waiting at the back door of the market. At that moment, bystanders discovered that over a dozen of plainclothes policemen had driven in two cars to arrest Mr. Liang.

[Tieling County, Liaoning Province] Obeying the Ruling Dictator, Officials Carry Out Acts of State Terrorism by Abducting Dafa Practitioners
After the officials in Tieling County received a secret order from the Chinese ruling dictator, they immediately held an urgent meeting and decided to assign Dadianzi Township a quota to arrest five Falun Gong practitioners. At around 6 p.m. on February 5, 2002, more than ten policemen including Li Weimin, deputy director of Tieling County's Police Department, and also Yun Ping, together with Zhang Zhicheng and Li Hongchang (a driver) from Dadianzi Township's Police Office went to female practitioner Ms. Gao Jie's home attempting to arrest her. By that time, Ms. Gao Jie happened to be taking a bath at a public bath house. The vicious policemen then illegally arrested practitioner Wei Guoquan who was cooking at Ms. Gao's home. After that, these vicious policemen broke into and searched all over the women's public bathhouse. With a righteous mind, Ms. Gao Jie escaped from the ensuing chaos. The policemen then broke into and searched people's homes going door to door. They even climbed over the compound walls to ransack people's homes. They set up checkpoints trying to trap Gao Jie and Nie Yuxian. The whole village was thrown into chaos, as if some bandits had invaded.
They attempted to trick female practitioner Ms. Chen Yaping into going to the police station, using the excuse of "verifying something," but Ms. Chen refused. Then, more than ten policemen broke into Ms. Chen's home. They pulled her out of bed by dragging her out by her hair. As a result, Ms. Chen's hair was pulled out in bunches. On January 21, 2002, the policemen arrested Mr. Chen Guisheng and Ms. Du Yeju without due cause. As of now, practitioners Wei Guoquan, Chen Yaping, Chen Guisheng and Du Yeju are illegally detained at Tieling County's Detention Center. Along with them, practitioner Liu Zunzhu, Feng Wenzhong, and Zhu Lisheng are also detained. They are forced to collect stones in a quarry.
On February 9, 2002 policemen from Tieling County's Police Department and local police station went to Zhanggouzi Village of Shuangjingzi Town and openly extorted money from Dafa practitioners. They threatened a couple, Mr. Li Shengxian and Ms. Zhang Yuxian, that they could spend the Spring Festival at home if they handed in 3,000 Yuan; otherwise, they would be sent to a detention center. Since February 4, 2002, practitioner Zhang Bo, who is detained at Tieling County's Detention Center without a valid reason, has been staging a hunger strike for nearly a month. We call on all kind-hearted people to give these people your support!

After he returned home, Feng collaborated with the local "610 Office" to set up brainwashing classes in Gaocheng City and persecute and terrorize Dafa practitioners. Upon knowing this, Feng's father felt so ashamed of his son that he dared not to see his fellow citizens and lay in bed for three days. Now, Feng even sends his own relative who practices Falun Gong into the brainwashing class. At present, Feng spends more than 10,000 Yuan a week. The police have won him over by promising to pay him, wining and dining him and giving him a bonus once he transforms a practitioner.
