1. [Changchun City, Jilin Province] Urgent Rescue of Arrested Practitioners in Changchun
We learned on March 18 that several practitioners were illegally detained in the No. 1 Detention Center of Changchun City. Visiting and bringing clothes to these practitioners are not allowed.

3. [China] Clarifying The Truth Face to Face, A Practitioner Obtains Back the Pay With Dignity
After I was released from a forced labor camp, I clarified the truth to people around me for a long time. Although there were many difficulties, I firmly persisted in doing so. I clarified the truth to my work unit managers, supervisory government officials, and even the mayor by directly talking to them or writing them letters . At the same time, this practitioner sent forth powerful and firm righteous thoughts to eliminate the evil behind the "610" office [Note: 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] and related persecutors. Recently, the practitioner was finally paid the 16-month salary that the work unit owed him/her (the 16-month period the practitioner was detained for appealing in Beijing). The practitioner used all the money (more than 10,000 Yuan) [Yuan: Chinese dollar. The average monthly salary of an urban worker in China is about 500 Yuan, but only 200 Yuan for a rural worker.] to clarify the truth about Falun Gong.

Inside Suihua City Forced Labor Camp, a 17-year-old practitioner named Xu Minghong is illegally detained in Team No. 4 of the Second Group. One day in December 2001, Xu tore down the poster that slandered Dafa. Labor camp officer Zeng Lingjun, officer Li Jian, and a guard tortured Xu with electric batons for his action. Xu Minghong was tortured so badly that he cried out loud and bumped his head against a compartment, which caused his head to bleed. However, the police guards did not stop torturing him. After he returned to the cell, someone asked him if he had been tortured. Fearing that his fellow practitioners would get into trouble, Xu said no. He did not tell anyone about his experience of being tortured until December. His fellow practitioners were all indignant about the brutal torture of a 17-year-old child.
