[Heilongjiang] Under Luo Gan's Orders, Heilongjiang Political And Judiciary System Seizes Falun Gong Practitioners In Large Numbers
Luo Gan recently went to Heilongjiang and planned a large-scale persecution of Dafa practitioners. He expects the Heilongjiang Political and Judiciary System to seize 6000 Falun Gong practitioners. There were 220,000 Falun Gong practitioners on the list of practitioners in the Heilongjiang Police Station. They aim to seize 2,000 practitioners each month during April, May, and June. Luo Gan also said to ignore real criminals such as murderers, arsonists and robbers. He said to just focus on seizing Falun Gong practitioners. The arrest of Falun Gong practitioners has become extremely severe all over Heilongjiang Province. The number of practitioners who have been rendered homeless has gradually increased as well. This includes those practitioners released from jail for medical treatment or after hunger striking, those who didn't sign a "guarantee letter" and those who went to appeal and jailed. All of these practitioners are targets to be arrested again. Police used the excuse of checking resident permits to search every household for Dafa practitioners. If they were refused entry, they would find a locksmith to forcibly open the door. If they were still not successful they would either use a crane or fire engine to be lifted up to a window and then enter through the window to detain practitioners. They would then ransack the home and detain practitioners if they found any Dafa materials. If they could not find any Dafa materials, they would ask practitioners if they still practiced. They would then detain the practitioners who stuck to their beliefs. For those that they consider to be prominent practitioners, they would find any excuse to arrest them.
We call upon the kind-hearted people all over the world to stop the Jiang regime from persecuting thousands of Falun Gong Practitioners and to give your help and support to human rights issues in China.
[Harbin City, Heilongjiang Province] Police Order Residents: "Immediately Turn Off Your TVs if the Signal Is Interrupted"
Recently the police stations in some areas of Harbin City demanded that their local residents turn off their TVs immediately if the signals from the cable TV are stopped. This shows how scared the authorities have become. Those clear-headed residents realized that it is just because they were afraid of people learning the truth about Falun Gong. We hope that Harbin Dafa practitioners take this opportunity to tell people about Dafa and the persecution in a deeper and more thorough way. Give the kind-hearted people an opportunity to have righteous thoughts about Dafa.
[Jilin Province] Jilin Province Coerces All Government Officials to Commit Crimes
Recently, the government officials of Jilin Province relayed an order from the superiors to every level of administration. The message talks about a few "sensitive days" including April 25, the anniversary of the large-scale peaceful appeal in Beijing three years ago, and May 13, World Falun Dafa Day, that will soon arrive. Because of these orders, all Falun Dafa practitioners have to be kept under close surveillance. The responsibilities fall on each individual, "The officials will lose their jobs if those they are responsible for create problems." At the same time, the Jilin provincial government has sent documents to all prisons and forced labor camps that they cannot refuse to take in Falun Gong practitioners. They claimed that it is time to "close" the Falun Gong issue and declared, "This is a political battle that is a fight to the death." At present, every level of government in Jilin Province is trying to stop the distribution of the truth-telling banners and flyers.
[Huadian City, Jilin Province] Education Department Spreads Wicked Lies to All High School and Primary School Students
On April 17, 2002, officials from the Jilin Province Education Department openly spread malicious lies about Falun Gong practitioners "taking away 500 young girls and boys" in an attempt to generate hostility in innocent teenagers, parents, and residents against Dafa. We ask Dafa practitioners to send forth righteous thoughts to eliminate this evil.

[Songyuan City, Jilin Province] Dafa Practitioner on the Verge of Death
In March 2002, Dafa practitioner Wang Qingxin from Songyuan City, Fuyu County, Jilin Province, was illegally detained by six policemen. The police used different torture instruments to inhumanly abuse him. They forced him to lie on the "Dead Person's Bed" for 12 days. (The four limbs of the practitioner are stretched out and tied to the four corners of an icy-cold metal bed so the practitioner cannot move at all. He is not allowed to get up to eat, drink or go to the bathroom. This treatment can last from several hours to more than 12 days.) Wang's lower limbs became numb, and he became incontinent. Wang's mouth and cheeks were pierced with a needle by the vicious policemen, causing severe wounds that festered. At the time, Wang was tortured until he almost stopped breathing. The cruel police became scared and immediately took him to a hospital. The police still did not let Wang go home after he was resuscitated at the hospital. They sent Wang to Sanchahe Detention Center in Fuyu County. When he saw Wang's condition, the person in charge of the detention center was afraid that he would be blamed if Wang died, and refused to take him in. Finally, the ruthless police viciously ordered the local police and the village security committee to take 24 hour shifts and monitor Wang Qingxin.
[Qiqihar City, Heilongjiang] Eleven Falun Dafa Practitioners Illegally Tried
On July 23 and 24, 2001, the People's Courthouse in Jianhua District in Qiqihar City, Heilongjiang Province illegally tried 11 Falun Dafa practitioners. The practitioners were: Li Huifeng, Li Xingya, Han Songwei, Wang Yudong, Jiang Futian, Gong Haiou, Wen Jie (female), Zhang Jian, Su Yan, Wang Weihua, Chu Li (female). They had already been detained for more than six months previously.
[Daqing City, Heilongjiang] Falun Dafa Practitioners Illegally Detained
Before April 25, 2002, officials in Daqing City, Heilongjiang Province wantonly detained Falun Gong practitioners Zhang Xingye and his wife Tang Zengye, Dai Zhizhong and other practitioners. The police seized the practitioners at various checkpoints and secretly arrested some other practitioners.
[Hebei Province] Seven Dafa Practitioners Arrested for Appeals
This year on January 7 on the lunar calendar, seven Dafa practitioners from Hebei Province started at the border of Shijiazhuang and Baoding City and walked to Beijing to appeal for the right to practice Dafa. On their journey, they clarified the truth to the people they met. When they arrived in Baoding City, they were illegally arrested. Zhang Xiaodian from Xong County was returned to her hometown. Zhang Qinxian and He Qingliu, who are from Boye County, were illegally detained at the police station located on 54th Street in Baoding City. Wu Ying, Xiao Mian, Jian Yong from Shenze County and a practitioner from Shijiazhuang were detained and sent back to their hometowns.
[Qingdao City, Shandong Province] Dafa Truth-Clarifying Material Storage Center Damaged by Police
In early March, former practitioners Liu Yanqin and Gao Changqing from Qingdao City, who had "enlightened" along an evil path and turned against Dafa, along with six policemen, went to the home of Dafa practitioner Su Guihua. Ms. Su was taken to a hospital by force for an "examination," after which she was sent to a brainwashing class. However, her blood pressure was above 200, so she was then sent home. Su Guihua was then forced to leave her home to avoid further persecution. Her whereabouts are still unknown. Not long ago, Su's son Xie Jin, a Dafa practitioner, was arrested by police at a Dafa truth-clarifying material storage center, where police confiscated a copier and other equipment.
[Hebei Province] Officials at Shijiazhuang Railway Locomotive Service Department Abuse an Employee
Ding Lihong is a locomotive driver at the Shijiazhuang Railway Locomotive Service Department. After July 20, 1999, he went to Beijing to appeal for Dafa many times. He was arrested and tortured, and his home was ransacked. All this could not shake his belief in Dafa. On February 13, 2002, he was taken to a brainwashing center, the so-called "Hebei Law Education Center" organized by Hebei Province's "610 Office." [The "610" office is a bureau specifically created by the Chinese government to persecute Falun Gong. It has absolute power over each level of administration in the Party, as well as over the political and judiciary branches]. It's known that Ding went on a hunger strike for 28 days and was force-fed twice. Under pressure, officials at his work unit allocated 3 people to be "education companions" and monitor him 24 hours a day. They changed shifts once a week. His work unit paid all the expenses for the companions along with an extra bonus of 100 Yuan per week. They were supplied with a ping pong table, cards, and other items for their entertainment. They planned to add two more people to the rotation after May 1, Labor Day in China.
These "education companions" tortured Ding by beating, cursing, and kicking him. They complained that Ding made them unhappy. Ding kindly said to them, "Do not behave like this. You are only harming yourselves."

[Shanxi Province] Police in Taiyuan Female Detention Center Receive Retribution
Taiyuan Woman's Detention Center instigated drug dealers, prostitutes and other criminals to monitor Dafa practitioners and keep them from talking. Dafa practitioners who practiced the exercises were beaten by the inmates and guards. The guards refuse to listen to the Dafa practitioners' clarifying the truth to them and make the distinction between good and evil.
However, many of those who persecuted the Dafa practitioners have been punished. Lu, former Director of the Xindian Woman's Detention Center in Taiyuan City, ordered her underlings to beat Dafa practitioners with electric batons. She has undergone two surgeries since then. Other officers were punished to different degrees. One criminal, who was released for torturing Dafa practitioners, was jailed again only a few days after being released. When he arrived at the detention center, his face was dark; he was unable to walk and had difficulty breathing. The Datong Public Security Bureau Head, who was known for his ruthlessness to Dafa practitioners, was involved in a car accident. It is a shame that they still do not regret what they have done, even after experiencing a small degree of retribution.
[Nongan County, Jilin Province] Practitioners Kidnapped from Department Store
On April 15, 2002, police kidnapped five Dafa practitioners from a department store in Nongan County .
[Chengdu City, Sichuan Province] Police Search and Arrest Many Dafa Practitioners - Jiang Chaolin, Associate Chief of the "610" Office, Dies in a Car Accident
According to a report in Tianfu Morning News, at 10 p.m. on April 24, Wang Sanyun, the deputy Party Secretary started a so-called "Hurricane-F" operation to search for and arrest Dafa practitioners throughout the province. About 19,000 people were involved in Chengdu City, ignoring the meaning of law and justice. Suffering heavenly retribution, Jiang Chaolin, the deputy chief of the "610 Office," died in a car accident on April 12, 2002. We hope that the officials learned a lesson from what happened and stop helping the Chinese dictator to carry out his evil deeds.
[China] Principal Ba Qijin of the Second Advanced Middle School of Liaozhong County Abuses Dafa Practitioners in His School
Although Ba Qijin lost his son, he still does not regret his wrongdoings and continues to abuse Dafa practitioners more violently. In December 2001, more than ten Dafa practitioners in Liaozhong County went to Beijing to appeal for Falun Dafa. They were arrested and illegally sent to a forced labor camp. Since one of them was from Ba's school, he felt very angry. First, Ba forced three Dafa practitioners in his school to quit their jobs and report to the school at a certain time every day. He tried to force them to undergo brainwashing. The practitioners did not cooperate and left the school within a few days. Still not satisfied, Ba deceived their family members, and abducted one Dafa practitioner and sent him to a forced labor camp. The other two were tricked into returning to school, where they are undergoing forced brainwashing.

[China] Sending Forth Righteous Thoughts to Eliminate the Evil Behind Sham Scientist He Zuoxiu
He Zuoxiu was scheduled to give a lecture in Beijing Industrial and Business School to slander Dafa at 2 p.m. on April 26, 2002. About one and a half years ago, police from the Haidian Police Station beat Zhao Xin to death for her persistent belief in Falun Dafa and clarifying the truth. She was a faculty member at the same school.
