1. [Changchun City, Jilin Province] Heavenly Climate Warns People in the World - Snow Falls on April 24 in Changchun
The police in Changchun City, under the instigation of the Jiang-Luo regime, have carried out bloody suppression of Falun Dafa practitioners since the March 5 incident that broadcast the truth about Falun Gong on cable TV. So far over 5000 people have been arrested. Many people have died because of police brutality. In March, Changchun was hit by a rarely seen, high-intensity dust storm. Now, near the end of April (one day before the anniversary of Falun Gong practitioners' peaceful appeal in 1999), Changchun received a heavy snowfall. This is another warning issued from heaven: Falun Dafa is facing the worst injustice throughout history.
2. [Harbin City, Heilongjiang Province] Some Areas in Harbin Strengthen Investigation of Falun Dafa Practitioners
Recently, police stations in some areas of Harbin City, in coordination with Neighborhood Administration Offices and Residential Committees, have sent people to visit Falun Dafa practitioners' homes. Some called over the phone, asking if the practitioner is still practicing. Some have showed up to ask directly whether the practitioner is still practicing. Some work units have investigated employees and employees of subordinate organizations to compile information on Falun Dafa practitioners for use by higher authorities. In particular, some officials who came to visit practitioners at home carried a large bag that could have held tape recorders. It might be that the voices of various practitioners are to be recorded and put on file.
Recently many practitioners have felt much interference from various sides. We hope that Falun Dafa practitioners in Harbin City can properly treat this interference by refusing to cooperate with any demands and tricks of the guilty people, and send forth the purest and most resolute righteous thoughts to "thoroughly annihilate the Evil and sweep the entire cosmos clean."
3. [Dalian City, Liaoning Province] Female Falun Dafa Practitioner Is Arrested Again
On April 22 in Dalian City, a female practitioner who is over 50 years old was arrested again. This practitioner had been put into a labor camp for over a year. It has been reported that this round of arrests was a coordinated, citywide campaign.
4. [Anhui Province] Nanhu Forced Labor Camp Establishes Brainwashing Center
Spending a huge amount of money, Nanhu Forced Labor Camp in Anhui Province has completed the construction of a new brainwashing center (the No. 6 Large Team) on Yangzi Mountain, where the former No. 5 Large Team was located. Each room in the brainwashing center is equipped with video and audio surveillance devices. Even the restrooms are bugged.
The former No. 5 Large Team is one of the teams run by the most vicious people in the Nanhu Forced Labor Camp. Each year there have been people beaten to death. It is especially common for people to be injured by beatings received. A head of the No. 11 Large Team frequently yelled in public, "What is civilized administration? As long as no one is killed by beatings it is a civilized administration." In 2001, the No. 5 Large Team was reorganized to become the brainwashing center. Given the secret orders of "death due to beating to be counted as suicide" and "quota provided for death cases" from Jiang and Luo, it is not hard to discern the wicked intention of constructing the brainwashing center on this remote, uninhabited mountain.
5. [Beijing] Shijingshan District Resumes Illegally "Registering" Falun Dafa Practitioners
Recently Shijingshan District in Beijing has resumed "registering" all Falun Dafa practitioners. Submission of pictures has been demanded. It has been reported that the Gucheng subway exit is under constant surveillance. Whenever a practitioner passes by, he or she will be interrogated regarding the destination and purpose of the trip. We call for fellow practitioners' attention to send forth righteous thoughts and eliminate the evil.
6. [Anhui Province] Falun Gong Practitioners Released Are Placed under Surveillance as Planned - the Home of a Practitioner Who Has Published a Solemn Statement Remains under Siege
When Falun Gong practitioner Zheng Deming was held at Chaohu Farm, he once enlightened along an evil path. After his release, he was able to read the Falun Gong founder's recent articles and awaken. He published the solemn statement on clearwisdom.net. On April 23, 2002, officers from Bozhou Road Police Station surrounded his home in an attempt to arrest him again. At the time of this report, his home is still under siege. We hope that practitioners who have learned this send forth righteous thoughts to eliminate the factors that are against Falun Dafa and help him to overcome this difficulty. The guilty people are releasing practitioners and those who have enlightened along an evil path with plans to place them under surveillance. Practitioners in various districts, please eliminate this scheme with righteous thoughts.
The telephone number of Bozhou Road Police Station: 86-551-5527736 (always on duty), 86-551-5543798.
7. [Taigu County, Shanxi Province] Acts of Guilty People from Limin Factory in Taigu County, Shanxi Province
On December 29, 2001, Falun Dafa practitioner Guo Weizhong at Limin Factory in Taigu County, Shanxi Province tried to clarify the truth about Falun Gong to Deputy Party Secretary Wang He (in charge of the persecution of Falun Gong) by showing him a CD. Guo persuaded Wang to stop persecuting Falun Dafa practitioners. However, Wang He gathered over 30 people from the county police department, the township police station and the factory security section to break suddenly into Guo's home on February 9, 2002. They conducted an illegal search of Guo's home and then forcibly took Guo into custody. We hope that the practitioners who read this report can send forth righteous thoughts to help Guo walk out of the evil's den.
List of guilty people:
Wang He, deputy Party secretary of Limin Factory (formerly No. 753 Factory) in Taigu County, Shanxi Province, head of the "610 Group" in the factory. [The "610 Office" is 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.]
Yang Junrui, section chief of the Political Security Section of the Police Department in Taigu County, Shanxi Province, who has received the "award for contributions" from Luo Gan. Yang lives at No. 10 Loudao Lane, Beimen. His home number is 86-354-6225030.
Cui Xiyin, activist in persecuting Falun Dafa and practitioners, whose home number is 86-354-6250606.
8. [Zibo City, Shandong Province] Police Officers Are All Out to Intercept Falun Dafa Practitioners on Their Way to Beijing
Around 2:00 a.m. April 20, police officers in Zibo City participated in a coordinated clandestine deployment. Police officers were posted at all intersections. The goal was to intercept any Falun Gong practitioners and prevent them from going to Beijing or Tiananmen Square during the upcoming April 25 anniversary and May 1 Labor Day holiday season. Also, since the publishing of the Falun Gong founder's new books over the Internet, police officers in Zibo City are all aware that "new articles of Falun Gong are on the way here." According to internal sources, the "coordinated action" by Zibo Police Department will continue for a while. No matter how horrible the situation has turned out to be, Falun Dafa practitioners have been eliminating the evil with their own righteous thoughts and wisdom. The truth-clarifying materials about Falun Gong have continued to be widely distributed through the streets and alleys.
9. [Shandong Province] Qidu Police Department of Qilu Petroleum Chemical Company in Shandong Province Applying for Huge Amounts of Money to Block the Internet
The Qidu Police Department of Qilu Petroleum Chemical Company in Shandong Province is applying for highly advanced network monitoring equipment in order to block free access to the internet. Qilu Petroleum Chemical Company's Information Harbor already has blocking devices, and this advanced equipment will cost them a million Yuan. At the same time the current economic conditions in the area are so desperate that unemployed workers are protesting continuously. (Since last year, the number of employees protesting in front of the Qilu Petroleum Chemical Company's office building has been increasing, and the protests are becoming more and more frequent, often blocking the traffic.) Officials don't attempt to provide people with adequate food and clothing. Instead, they have spent huge amounts of money to persecute the benevolent Falun Gong practitioners and block people's freedom of speech. They are extremely vicious.
10. [Shandong Province] Just for Accessing the Internet, A Practitioner Is Criminally Detained
Liu Weiduo is an employee of the Oil Refinement Plant of Qilu Petroleum Chemical Company in Shandong Province. Some days ago he was arrested and then illegally detained as a criminal. Police threatened that, if he refused to give up practicing Falun Dafa, he would not be released even though his term of detention had expired. Police arrested Liu simply because he accessed the Internet and browsed "sensitive" websites. Liu Weiduo, over 30 years old, is a Dafa practitioner, a very diligent worker and a good and virtuous person. He was criminally detained simply because he browsed a Dafa website. Jiang's ludicrous and retrogressive policy has reached this extreme.
11. [Shijiazhuang City, Hebei Province] Wang Bo's Mother Liu Shuqin Is Tortured in An Isolated Cell of Shijiazhuang Forced Labor Camp
Wang Bo's mother Liu Shuqin defamed Falun Dafa on TV. Afterward she was somewhat repentant for what she had done. Two weeks ago Liu Shuqin was dragged to the Shijiazhuang Forced Labor Camp where she was pulled upstairs and detained for three days. In the forced labor camp, they often use brutal means to persecute Dafa practitioners, including isolating the practitioners, beating them up, depriving them of the right to sleep for long periods of time, and not allowing them to have contact with others. They detained Liu Shuqin upstairs, which indicated that Liu's opinion was inconsistent with theirs, and they persecuted her.
12. [Jiamusi City, Heilongjiang Province] For Fearlessly Clarifying the Truth, A Dafa Practitioner's Elderly Family Member Is Abducted By Police in Jiamusi City
On April 17, vicious police from Qiaonan Police Station in Jiamusi City illegally broke into a senior Dafa practitioner's home in Sifengshan. They ransacked his home and took away Dafa materials including audiotapes and truth-clarifying CD's. The Dafa practitioner's family member, a non-practitioner almost 70 years old, fearlessly stood up to clarify the truth. The vicious police became extremely angry and unexpectedly abducted this elderly man, later sending him to the detention center.
13. [Chengdu City, Sichuan Province] More Than 10 Falun Dafa Practitioners Detained in the Brainwashing Class in the Wuhou District of Chengdu City
Since last September, more than 20 Dafa practitioners have been detained, one after the other, in the repressive brainwashing class in the Wuhou District of Chengdu City. In an attempt to persecute Dafa practitioners for long periods of time, the coldhearted authorities even made the wall around the building higher. Currently, there are still more than 10 practitioners being detained there. The vile people in charge ordered over 10 guards to watch the Dafa practitioners. The guards do not allow the practitioners to talk or practice the exercises and even forbid their family members from visiting them. The guards beat the practitioners repeatedly. At present, some of the detained practitioners are going on a hunger strike to protest the persecution.
The vicious people:
Vice Secretary of Wuhou District Party Committee: Gao Mingliang
Home phone number: 86-28-85065618
Team leader of the brainwashing class: Liu Xiaokang and Wang Jimin
14. [Beijing, China] Use Righteous Thoughts to Eliminate the Evil Beings That Damage Dafa in the People's University of China
We have learned that Jiang Zemin is going to the People's University of China at the end of April for an "inspection."
Since Jiang's regime started to brutally persecute Falun Gong, the People's University has actively been helping tyrants do evil. Some phony "experts and scholars" carried out the so-called "exposing and criticizing " on radio and TV and in the newspapers, unconscionably using faulty reasoning and spreading false statements, which has confused many people. On March 2001, He Zuoxiu gave a so-called "seminar" at the People's University where he asked many teachers, employees, and students to sign their names to renounce Dafa. These purportedly unbiased "educators" have poisoned the minds of many people who have not yet had the opportunity to know the truth.
Before July 20, 1999, more than 100 people practiced the exercises together every morning on the campus of the People's University. After the evil persecution began, officials from the Party Committee of the People's University, the Security Division, and the general Party branch of each subordinate college in which there were Dafa practitioners cooperated with the Haidian District Police Department, the Haidian Police Station, and the Cultural Security Division of Beijing City Police Department in repeatedly sending many Falun Gong practitioners to the forced labor camp and detention center. In mid-March of 2001, He Zuoxiu came to give a lecture. Fearing that Falun Gong practitioners would disclose on the spot the ugly face of this "club used to strike at people," the cadres of the People's University abducted four steadfast Dafa practitioners, then monitored and forcibly brainwashed them 24 hours a day. They sent another practitioner to Tuanhe Forced Labor Camp for brainwashing and persecution.
At the end of March, the People's University, along with the Cultural Security Division of the Beijing City Police Department and the Beijing Education Working Committee, abducted 4 practitioners and forcibly sent them to Tuanhe Forced Labor Camp where they were mentally persecuted. Under extreme pressure and brutal persecution, these 4 practitioners were forced to yield against their own will. At present, two practitioners have been freed from the evil persecution and continue to cultivate Dafa. They have now become homeless and destitute in order to evade arrest.
