1. [China] China Great Wall Aluminum Company Creates False Article
A female worker in the China Great Wall Aluminum Company used to have breast cancer. She stayed at home on sick leave and often had to go to the hospital, which was a financial burden for her family. She was living in agony. Her husband worked in the same company and had to sell flour in his spare time to make extra money. After she practiced Falun Gong her health changed completely. She would tell everyone that Falun Dafa is good and that Falun Dafa saved her family. After July 20, 1999, her company forced her to read a false article, that they prepared, at the company's cable TV station. The article denied the miraculous disease-healing effect of Falun Dafa. They threatened to fire her husband if she did not do as they said. Against her conscience, she was forced to read the article that did not even convince the staff at the TV station. Later the staff asked her, "How is Falun Gong really?" She said, "You can see just by looking at me."
2. [Qingdao City, Shandong Province] Qingdao Government Deprives Citizens' Rights by Further Controlling the Internet
Currently, all the Internet bar owners in the four districts of Qingdao have to attend the Internet bar security personal training class held by the Internet Security Inspection Office in Qingdao City Police Department and receive an Internet Bar Security Qualification Certificate. The real purpose of the class is to force people to register their residency ID card numbers, install filtering software, analyze daily records, and therefore enable the monitoring of the people who use the Internet.
3. [Zhengzhou City, Henan Province] Falun Dafa Practitioner Quan Peijun Is Being Persecuted in a Brainwashing Class After Being Illegally Detained at Bailang Forced Labor Camp for One Year
Practitioner Quan Peijun worked in the transportation department of the China Great Wall Aluminum Company. For distributing Dafa materials, he was illegally sentenced to one year by the "610" Office" [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] in Shangjie district in Zhengzhou City. In Zhengzhou Baimiao Forced Labor Camp, he endured brutal physical and mental tortures yet steadfastly persisted his belief in Dafa and Teacher. After his one year sentence was over, the police from the labor camp secretly sent him to a brainwashing class at Wanqing Village in Xiliu Lake, where he is still being held.
Holding her tears, Quan's 70-year-old mother had to leave Quan's house and live with a relative in another province. His wife was very ill, couldn't take care of herself, and was close to her delivery date. His elderly mother-in-law had to take his wife to her house. The police used the excuse that his brother and sister-in-law also practiced Falun Gong and would not allow Quan's family to visit him or send him living necessities. Quan's environment is extremely bad.

4. [Lanzhou Province] The head of Beijing Police Bureau Went to Lanzhou and Forced the Local Police Department to Further Persecute Dafa Practitioners
Recently, the head of Beijing Police Bureau came to Lanzhou. The police departments of the province, the city, and the local branches passed the pressure from one to another, and so the work units and local residency committees were forced to cooperate to start a new round of persecution. Chengguan district acted first and required all Falun Dafa practitioners at home to "pass an individual test" -- in other words, write a guarantee agreeing to quit the practice. Those practitioners who refused to write were immediately sent to brainwashing class.
5. [Heilongjiang Province] The Agricultural Development Agency Illegally Holds Brainwashing Classes and Violates the Freedom of Belief
Heilongjiang Agricultural Development Agency established a brainwashing center at Baoquanling Agricultural Development Branch Bureau. All firm practitioners are sent there and undergo forced brainwashing. Those practitioners who do not change are sentenced to 3-7 years.
6. [Henan Province] Henan Female Forced Labor Camp Tries to Cover up the Persecution by Building a "Garden Environment" With Citizens' Money
On July 25, 2002, the Governor of Henan Province and the heads of the police bureau and "610" Office went to Henan Female Forced Labor Camp to do a so-called inspection, but were actually plotting to persecute Dafa practitioners. Jiang's political regime and the corrupted officials in Henan government invested a lot of citizens' money into the labor camp that persecutes the citizens. They built a garden outside the labor camp in order to decorate the area and hide their persecution of innocent people. Actually, inside the labor camp, they torture Dafa practitioners with beatings, heavy labor, brainwashing, disallowing family visits, and sentence extensions, etc. Dafa practitioners sustain great physical and mental tortures.
