1. [Guangzhou City, Guangdong Province] "610 Office" Abducts Practitioner Zhang Mengye and His Wife Luo Muluan to a Brainwashing Class
On the morning of May 17, 2002, practitioner Zhang Mengye and his wife Luo Muluan went to visit Sui Xiao (a person who had gone astray and no longer practiced Falun Gong) at his/her home. The police arrested the couple near Sui Xiao's apartment building. Zhang and Luo had a phone conversation with Sui before they visited him/her. The police probably monitored the call. Zhang Mengye was sent to the brainwashing class inside Huangpu Drug Detoxification Center in Guangzhou City.
In the brainwashing class, members of 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] hired some thugs to torture practitioners. Each practitioner was locked in a cell with audio and video monitoring devices. Every day, the persecutors forced the practitioners to watch video programs and read materials that slandered Dafa and Teacher. After these materials were "studied," the persecutors tried to force the practitioners to write letters renouncing Dafa by depriving them of sleep. If the practitioners wrote materials that clarified the truth about Dafa, the persecutors immediately beat them up and cursed Teacher and Dafa. They beat and cursed the practitioners, forced them to stand upright without moving, and didn't allow them to sleep for days if the materials written by the practitioners failed to meet their requirements.
The most solid practitioners inside the brainwashing class were not allowed to have any visitors. Zhang Mengye's mother is in her 80s, yet she was not allowed to see her son. Because Zhang had exposed the persecution in a forced labor camp, the persecutors were allowed to treat him even worse than usual. We call for all kind-hearted people around the world to pay attention to this issue.
Zhang's wife Luo Muluan was sent to a brainwashing class in Guangzhou City Legal Study School (located in Chatou, Baiyun District).
2. [Hulan County, Heilongjiang Province] The New Director of Hulan County Political Protection Section Orders the Abduction of Practitioner Li Dongxue
After the 2002 Spring Festival, the Hulan County Police Department frequently harassed and abducted Dafa practitioners. After a new director of the Political Protection Section, Wang Keda, arrived, the situation worsened. Since April, the persecutors have illegally sent 2 practitioners to forced labor camps. They are also detaining 6 practitioners in the county detention center (two of the 6 practitioners have been sentenced to jail terms).
On the afternoon of May 24, 2002, the Political Protection Section planned to arrest practitioner Li Dongxue. The persecutors first sent a police guard from the local police station to Li's home (to make sure Li was there), and then Wang Keda led several guards to knock on the door. Li Dongxue refused to open the door. After a while, Li's husband (who is handicap) met the police guards when he returned to his home. The persecutors lied to him and said that they just wanted to take a look inside. However, once Li opened the door, the guards rushed into the apartment and tried to arrest Li forcefully. Li firmly resisted; frightened by the scene, Li's mother fainted on the spot. Wang Keda called in a police van, and about 10 police guards forcefully carried Li into the van. At this time, many people gathered around the building. Seeing so many police guards brutally treat a lady like this, they were all indignant. Later on, Li's husband went to the police department and asked them to release Li. However, the police denied that they had lied to the husband and refused to release Li. As a result of her arrest, Li Dongxue's family is in trouble: Her elderly mother, handicapped husband, and young child all need to be taken care of. We strongly call for kind people around the world to condemn such persecution.
3. [Dalian City, Liaoning Province] Ganjingzi Police Sub-Department and Paoya Police Station Abduct Many Practitioners
Yu Shanying is a 66-year-old practitioner who lives in Ganjingzi District of Dalian City. Around 5 p.m. on May 14, 2002, some guards from Ganjingzi Police Sub-Department and Paoya Police Station abducted Yu and ransacked his/her home. Currently, Yu is kept under detention in Yaojia Detention Center. According to incomplete statistics, about 10 practitioners were illegally abducted in Paoya area on the night of May 14, 2002.
4. [Dalian City, Liaoning Province] Xishan Police Station Abduct Ten Practitioners
There are many wicked guards in the Xishan Police Station of Dalian City. In order to earn rewards (1000 Yuan for each practitioner they arrest) [The average monthly salary of an urban worker in China is about 500 Yuan, but only 200 Yuan for a rural worker], they lurk near the doorways of practitioners' homes for hours or even days. The guards intended to arrest practitioners on April 24. In this way, they illegally arrested over 10 practitioners and sent them to Yaojia Detention Center, where the practitioners are tortured.
We call for the attention of all benevolent people around the world and we strongly urge the Chinese government to stop such illegal deeds and to unconditionally release all the detained practitioners.
5. [Qingdao City, Shandong Province] Dashan Forced Labor Camp Wildly Persecutes Practitioners
All the male practitioners around Qingdao City (including the counties and nearby cities) who were sentenced to labor camp terms are detained at Dashan Forced Labor Camp. (Female practitioners sentenced to labor camps are detained at Wangcun Forced Labor Camp in Zibo City.)
The guards in Dashan Forced Labor Camp ferociously persecute those practitioners who refuse to give up their beliefs. They order some collaborators (people who used to practice Falun Dafa, but have been brainwashed by the Jiang regime) to brainwash the practitioners, brutally torture them with various methods, and deprive them of sleep for extended periods of time. Recently, we heard that a practitioner named Wang Jiwei solemnly declared that all he had written and said that does not conform to Dafa to be void. Many guards immediately ganged up on him and brutally beat him. The practitioner was then detained in a confinement cell, and his whereabouts remain unknown.
We hope that people from all walks of life will help to stop the brutal persecution.
6. [Anhui Province] College Student Fang Linmiao Illegally Sentenced to 1.5 Years in a Forced Labor Camp
Practitioner Fang Linmiao is a senior in college. On May 1, 2002, Fang went to Tiananmen Square to appeal for Dafa, speaking aloud the words "Falun Dafa is Good" from his/her heart. The persecutors illegally sentenced Fang to 1.5 years in a forced labor camp for such a peaceful appeal.
7. [Shijiazhuang City, Hebei Province] Exposing the Atrocity in Shijiazhuang Forced Labor Camp
Around 5:30 p.m. on April 10, 2002, Wu Yuliang, director of Shijiazhuang Forced Labor Camp, leading a group of armed guards abducted a practitioner (the persecutors thought that the practitioner had organized a group practice in the camp). When other practitioners asked them why this person had been taken away, the guards did not reply. The persecutors then took all the practitioners that were on hunger strikes to the dining hall in groups of 5 or 6 at a time. In the dining hall, there were about 50 fully armed police in black uniforms, holding both electric batons and regular police batons. They shouted at the practitioners: "If you don't eat now, we will force-feed you!" Seeing the practitioners remain silent, the guards took the practitioners to the third floor. None of the practitioners were afraid. When the third floor became filled, they took the rest of the practitioners to the second floor, and then to the first floor. They brutally force-fed all the practitioners with concentrated salt water and tried to force them to write "guarantee letters." Meanwhile, the guards beat, shocked the practitioners with electric batons, and tortured them with methods like "tying the ropes." [Illustrations of torture methods:
http://www.clearwisdom.net/emh/articles/2001/11/24/16156.html] The guards moved a practitioner from floor to floor and tortured him/her for over 2 hours until the practitioner was half dead. Here we sternly warn the wicked police guards: you are violating the law. Director of the labor camp Wu Yuliang and Commissar Wang personally led the guards and committed these crimes. (The two people have been arrested for other crimes in the past.)
8. [Huludao City, Liaoning Province] Police in Lianshan District Break into a Practitioner's Home
On February 4, 2002, the neighbor of practitioner Huang Xiukun (alias) reported her to the police. The local police station then tricked Huang and two other practitioners into going to the police station. The guards also took away the practitioner's Dafa books, pictures of the Teacher, and an audio cassette player from Huang's home. A few hours later, they released the three practitioners.
Around noon on April 13, 2002, several plain-clothed police officers knocked on the door and windows of Huang's apartment, loudly asking Huang to open the door. The noise disturbed the neighbors. Huang hid on her neighbor's balcony. Seeing that no one opened the door for them, the police officer used a master key to open the door and entered the apartment. As they failed to find Huang, they immediately left. However, they returned around 9 p.m. that evening. At the time, Huang's sister, mother, and two daughters were at home. About 8 people entered the apartment (police guards and staff of the local community office). They trashed the apartment and frightened the two children out of bed, and afterwards the children both caught a cold. The persecutors did not find Huang or anything they wanted, so they left.
In May 2002, the persecutors went to Huang's apartment again to harass her and her family. To avoid further harassment, Huang was forced to leave home, and she cannot go to work.
9. [Hebei Province] Hebei Public Security Department Calls Perpetrator Zhao Qingxiang a "Martyr"
On May 13, 2002, Hebei TV Station aired the following news item: "On May 12, 2002, Hebei Public Security Department and Women's Association sent people to salute martyr Zhao Qingxiang's mother."
The truth is Zhao in his 40's had been strong and in good shape. However, he took the lead in persecuting Falun Gong. Recently, he contracted an acute disease that took his life in only a few days. He died in a hospital. Dissection of his corpse showed that all of his vital organs were putrefied.
Zhao's sudden death shocked and scared many perpetrators of the Shijiazhuang City Police; and the persecution of Dafa practitioners was dramatically reduced.
The Hebei Public Security Department called Zhao a "martyr" in order to comfort the persecutors, yet many police guards have learned the truth about Falun Gong and the persecution. They are not willing to work themselves to death for a political hoodlum.
10. [Lanzhou City, Gansu Province] A Practitioner Dies Because of Police Persecution
On June 13, 2002, some police guards went to the home of practitioner Su Lanzhou and his wife (both are practitioners). Su's wife was forced to jump from the 6th floor and died. Currently, the wicked police guards are hiding near Su's apartment building in order to arrest practitioners that visit Su. We urgently call for kind-hearted people and related international organizations to stop these acts of state terrorism.
On June 3, 2002 Police officer Han Ming from Anning Police Sub-Department led some guards and tricked practitioner Lu Yuying from her work unit. She was then abducted to the Gongjiawan Brainwashing Class.
On June 13, police guards from Anning Police and Qilihe Police Sub-Departments ransacked practitioner He Yingguo's home and arrested his wife Nie Ying as well as 10 other practitioners. The guards also hid near He's home in order to arrest more practitioners.
On the afternoon of June 14, 2002, around Lanzhou City, a huge corona appeared around the sun, which lasted for 2 hours. We hope that people can understand that practitioners are using their lives to wake up your consciences, telling you that Falun Dafa is good, and that Falun Dafa is a righteous cultivation way.
11. [Shenyang City, Liaoning Province] Two Collaborators' Crimes
A. Han Shiqiang lives in Huanggu District of Shenyang City. In 2001, Zhang "enlightened" along an evil path inside Zhangshi Forced Labor Camp, and since then has been persecuting Dafa practitioners. As a sales representative of Anli Company, Zhang slanders Dafa while he is selling the products. According to a police officer who knows the truth about him, Zhang works for the local "610 Office" and goes there to get his paychecks and bonuses (receiving hundreds of Yuan for each practitioner he helps to arrest). Under the disguise of delivering Dafa materials, Zhang's wife collects evidence to facilitate the arrest of practitioners. It is believed that some practitioners have already been arrested because of this couple.
B. Wu Chuanjin lives in Lingkong Second Street in Tiexi District, Shenyang City. Wu's phone number: 86-24-25917988. At the end of 2000, Wu "enlightened" along an evil path inside Zhangshi Forced Labor Camp. Since then, Wu has taken the lead in persecuting Dafa practitioners. Recently, some practitioners phoned him and clarified the truth to him, yet he doesn't want to give up the fame and interest he gets from Anli Company. He "closely follows the government" and continues to persecute practitioners. Recently, several practitioners have been abducted because of him.
