1. [Lanzhou City, Gansu Province] A 12-Year-Old Girl is Arrested and Detained on "June 1" International Children's Day
In Early May of this year, Lanzhou City Police abducted a female Dafa practitioner and her 12-year-old daughter. They were arrested and detained in the Xiguoyuan Detention Center. It is believed that right before June 1, the girl and her mother were secretly transferred to a brainwashing center in Gongjiawan, Lanzhou City, where the persecutors continued to detain and torture them.
The girl and her mother had been forced to leave their home in order to avoid torture and harassment by the authorities. They became homeless and destitute, moving around frequently in Lanzhou City to avoid further persecution. The girl was forced to leave her school and her studies were interrupted, and her mother was forced to leave her job and her means to support her daughter. The family was put under immense hardship due to the actions by the authorities.
We urgently call on all mothers, related organizations in the United Nations, and all people with a sense of justice to pay attention to the incident and condemn these serious human rights violations against innocent people. We also strongly urge the Chinese government to release the 12-year-old girl and her mother immediately and unconditionally.
2. [Jincheng City, Shanxi Province] Practitioner Deng Xianglian and Sun Hua from Henan Province was Abducted by the Authorities of Jincheng City's Detention Center
Practitioner Deng Xianglian (female, 58) and Sun Hua are both excellent teachers from Zhengzhou City, Henan Province. They were forced to become homeless to avoid further persecution and they became destitute. The two practitioners were arrested while they were clarifying the truth to people on March 9, 2002 in Lingchuan County, Shanxi Province. They refused to tell their names and addresses to the police. The Lingchuan County Police reported the matter as an important case to their superiors. Deng and Sun are currently detained in the Jincheng City Detention Center of Shanxi Province, and their family members are not allowed to visit them.
The two practitioners continued to clarify the truth inside the detention center and firmly refuse to cooperate with the evil. They went on a hunger strike for over 10 days. During the brutal force-feeding, the persecutors injured Deng Xianglian's stomach, causing it to bleed internally, putting the 58-year-old lady in a critical condition. Their work unit and the detention center offered to "guarantee" for them as long as they wrote letters renouncing Falun Gong, and they even offered to write the renouncing letters for them, but the two practitioners firmly refused.
3. [Suining City, Sichuan Province] An Excellent Teacher is Unlawfully Arrested and Detained for 4 Months
I am a teacher in a primary school in Suining City, and 35 years old. On November 11, 2001, the police arrested me while I was taking a walk with my friends. I was unlawfully arrested and detained in a police station for 4 months. They even sentenced me to a forced labor camp term without trial. I firmly oppose all of the persecution, because I am innocent.
4. [China] Teacher's Compassion Awakens A Practitioner
After July 20, 1999, a practitioner's mother gave up her cultivation. During the Spring Festival of 2002, the practitioner's brother gave his mother a ride on his motorcycle to visit some relatives. A van hit the motorcycle from behind. Coming out from under the van, the brother had no injury on him, and his clothes were all intact. The van's tires rolled over the mother's left arm twice, but she had only some minor injuries, with no bone fracture. People who learned about the accident were all very surprised at their good luck. The mother later realized that Teacher's law body was protecting her. Awakened by Teachers' great compassion, the mother started to practice Falun Dafa again.
5. [Jilin City, Jilin Province] Jilin City's "610" Office Encourages Crimes with the Offer of Huge "Awards"
The Jilin City "610" office ordered the "110" (emergency response number like "dialing 911" in the U.S.) police said, "For arresting one Falun Gong practitioner, you will be awarded with 2000 Yuan." [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] [ The average monthly salary of an urban worker in China is about 500 Yuan, but only 200 Yuan for a rural worker.]
6. [Hanchuan City, Hubei Province] The "610" Office Distributes Fliers and Encourages Crimes To Be Committed Against Practitioners
In April 2002, the "610" office of Hanchuan City started to intensively distribute fliers that slander Falun Gong to every student in primary and middle school. The persecutors purpose was to stir up hatred toward Dafa into the students' minds and encourage them through offering monitary awards to report practitioners, who are clarifying the truth to people. They even specified the amount of "awards" on the fliers. For example, "reporting a practitioner who distributes truth-clarifying fliers will be awarded with 500 Yuan." The "awards" can go up to thousands of Yuan. [ The average monthly salary of an urban worker in China is about 500 Yuan, but only 200 Yuan for a rural worker.]
Under the instigation and temptation, some people have already reported practitioners for the "awards."
On the night of May 16, 2002, while female practitioners Ouyang, Zhang Dongjiao, Gao Zhihong, and Fu Zaixian were distributing truth-clarifying fliers in Makouxiang Town, some people reported them to the local police. As a result, the police arrested the practitioners. Currently, they are detained at the No. 2 Detention Center of Hanchuan City. (Ouyang and Zhang Dongjiao is in the process of being transferred to the No. 1 Detention Center of Hanchuan City)
On May 18, staff of the "610" office abducted practitioner Wang Qing from his work unit without any proper legal procedures. They then directly sent Wang to the Shayang Forced Labor Camp. Also, a 67-year-old practitioner Chen Deming and a female practitioner, Peng Liumei, were transferred from the No. 1 Detention Center of Hanchuan City to Shayang Forced Labor Camp.

7. [Wuhan City, Hubei Province] Police Guards from Baishazhou Beat Practitioners at the Yangyuan Brainwashing Class in Wuchang District
On March 27, 2002, I clarified the truth to a police guard from Baishazhou (Badge #: Hubei-032082). The guard did not listen to me, and he kicked the door of the cell violently. I said to him, "Don't be so vicious." My words made him furious. He opened the door and slapped my face ferociously. My mouth was bleeding from the torture. I said that beating people is illegal. He then pushed me onto the bed and beat me up. At the time, practitioners in the whole building were crying out loud, "Don't beat people." When the "610" staff came, they not only did not stop the perpetrator, but also threatened to sentence me. I said to them firmly, "I want to clarify the truth to you. You can choose not to listen to me, but beating people violates the law. It is him who should be sentenced."
