[Harbin City, Heilongjiang Province] We Appeal for the Urgent Rescue of Falun Gong Practitioners Persisting on a Long-Term Hunger Strike at Wanjia Forced Labor Camp
According to reliable sources, Falun Gong practitioner Ms. He Miao has been on a hunger strike for more than 5 months at the Harbin City Forced Labor Camp to protest brutal maltreatment. She weighs only 25 kilograms [about 45 pounds] now. Another Falun Gong practitioner, Ms. Shang Yuqiu, has been on a hunger strike for about 120 days and weighs only about 30 kilograms. Having existed under such extremely bad conditions for a long time, both of them suffered from scabies. The guards instigated other prisoners to tear off and scrape off the scabs left on their bodies by the scabies. Now their lives are in extreme danger and they are too weak to move freely.
We urgently appeal kind-hearted people to call the Wanjia Forced Labor Camp:
The forced labor camp: 011-86-451-4101454 ext. 3309
The No.7 Division: 011-86-451-410454 ext. 3472
[Dalian City, Liaoning Province] Beginning in April, Police Authorities Conducted a Three-Month Large Scale Raid; Many Dafa Practitioners Were Arrested
On April 8 and April 9, Dalian City police authorities conducted a large-scale raid against Falun Gong practitioners. Lawless policemen took search warrants to ransack Falun Gong practitioners' houses. They forced practitioners to hand over Dafa books and arrested all practitioners who continue to practice Falun Gong.
It was said that this raid would last three months, and all those practitioners whose addresses were known were on the search list. During the last few days, many practitioners were arrested and some practitioners had to leave home to avoid being arrested.
[Fushun City, Liaoning Province] Authorities are Outraged as Dafa Truth-clarifying Flyers are Posted in a Government Office Building
It was said that someone posted Dafa truth-clarifying flyers in a government building in Fushun City, which outraged officials. They declared they would start a raid against Falun Gong practitioners throughout the entire city.
[Shuangyashan City, Heilongjiang Province] Multiple Arrests of Practitioners
Practitioner Ms. Zhang Liyan has been on a hunger strike for half a month in order to protest her illegal imprisonment in Shuangyashan City's Detention Center of Heilongjiang Province. Practitioner Mr. Ren Huaizhi is also on a hunger strike. Policemen from the Sifangtai Police Precinct kidnapped practitioner Ms. Yi Shuqin from Jixian Mine Company and illegally detained her at Shuangyashan City's Detention Center for more than half a month. Practitioner Mr. Pan Xingfu was illegally sentenced to five years of imprisonment, but he has appealed. Practitioner Zhang Xinhua escaped with righteous thoughts when policemen from Shuangyashan Police Department kidnapped her. The vicious police were outraged. They climbed over Zhang's yard wall, broke into her home and kidnapped her sister. At present, her sister is imprisoned in a detention center.
[Xinjiang AR] Officials in Some Work Units Expel Determined Practitioners, Suspend Their Salaries and Even Attempt to Illegally Confiscate Their Houses
Right now, according to orders from the higher government, officials of many work units in Xinjiang AR suspended determined practitioners' salaries and even expelled them in order to force the practitioners to give up their righteous faith in Dafa. After they failed, they claimed they would confiscate the practitioners' houses. Some people suggested that all employees bought these homes after the housing reformation [a government program where every employee purchased his own house from his work unit] and the practitioners had official property ownership certificates, so the houses should not be confiscated. However, the thugs claimed, "Right now, Falun Gong is the 'enemy force,' so it's permissible to do this to them."
[Yanshan County, Hebei Province] Police Start a Raid on Practitioners and Arrest Many Practitioners
On the night of March 26, 2002, Liu Peihua, director of county committee, dispatched many policemen from Yanshan County's Police Department to ransack practitioners' houses on the name list. During the search, the policemen recklessly rummaged through the practitioners' houses. For those houses without anyone at home, the lawless policemen climbed over the walls or forcibly broke into the homes. If truth-clarifying materials or Dafa books were found in their homes, those practitioners were all to be arrested. Practitioners were detained in other towns. Right now, dozens of practitioners are still being detained.
[Hangzhou City, Zhejiang Province] "610 Office" Holds the Third Round of Brainwashing Classes; We Call Upon All to Rescue All Falun Gong Practitioners being Tortured
Officials in the state terrorist organization, 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 Hangzhou City, Zhejiang Province are holding the third round of brainwashing classes and they are attempting to brainwash the detained practitioners using torture. We call on all kind-hearted people to rescue the practitioners in brainwashing classes in China with all your efforts. These practitioners are living an extremely torturous life in which every day feels like a year, and every single second is spent under extreme persecution and torture!
[Hangzhou City, Zhejiang Province] Supplementary Information about a Practitioner Couple, Ms. Gan Hongyu and Mr. Ji Dongfeng; Both Hold Ph.D. Degrees
Ms. Gan Hongyu and Mr. Ji Dongfeng used to be post-doctoral students at Zhejiang University. The couple's story is very touching. Ms. Gan Hongyu had only obtained the Fa in January 2001 and was already arrested in April the same year. I used to be incarcerated in the same cell with her. She showed me the "Accusation Letter" with which Hangzhou City's police authorities had implicated her. She and her husband Mr. Ji Dongfeng were arrested for mailing Dafa truth-clarifying materials and emailing the stories about the things that are happening in Mainland China to Minghui Net. The so-called "Accusation Letter" is not about any crimes but indeed a righteous Fa-rectification history. The couple hadn't cultivated Dafa for a long time, but they had a very deep understanding of the Fa. By the time I saw her, she was very weak and pale because of the five-month illegal detention. She couldn't even completely remember the exercise movements and verses, however she had resolute, righteous faith and belief.
In order to avoid being captured by the lawless police, Dr. Gan Hongyu and Dr. Ji Dongfeng both jumped from the second floor. Dr. Gan Hongyu sustained a fractured lumbar vertebrae and the lower part of her body is nearly paralyzed.
According to information from prisoners released later, the couple was sentenced to five and six years of imprisonment, respectively. Other detailed information is not available. They were illegally deprived of their physical health and well-being, personal freedom and their right of receiving further education. We appeal to the international community to help them.

On July 20, 2001, practitioner Mr. Miao Shuquan from Yishui City, Shandong Province, unfurled a banner reading "Stop Persecuting Falun Dafa" with me near the People's Heroes Monument. Since then she has been missing, up until now. Circumstances about his life-or-death-situation as well as his whereabouts are unknown.
[Beijing] Aiding and Abetting Collaborators
- Shen Liandi (female) is from Beijing's Petroleum Prospecting and Development Institute. Before July 20, 1999, she had always displayed a "supernatural" state among everyday people and claimed that she had read Zhuan Falun five hundred times. She also bragged how well she had cultivated. Around the Spring Festival this year, Shen Liandi was taken to a brainwashing class. In the first two days she staged a hunger strike but on the third day she gave in to the evil forces and betrayed all the practitioners she knew. As a result, all the practitioners in the area were implicated and taken to the brainwashing class. After Shen was released, she continuously spread her evil enlightenment and actively collaborated with "relative" units to brainwash practitioners and created extremely bad influences in the area.
- Dong Liying (female) is from Beijing's Petroleum Chemical Science Institute. In 2001 she was kidnapped and forcibly taken to a brainwashing class. Shortly afterwards she enlightened along an evil path. She started to actively cooperate with the evil forces at the brainwashing class and betrayed Dafa practitioners. After she returned to her work unit, the brainwashing class organizers asked her to go back, to often brainwash Dafa practitioners. She influenced many people in the area quite negatively and was the cause of many problems. Home telephone number of Dong Liying is 011-86 -10-62341499.
Home phone number of Shen Liandi is 011-86-10-62098787.
