[Beijing City] Lawless Policemen Harass Dafa Practitioners
Recently, lawless policemen in a Beijing suburb launched a new round of persecution against Dafa practitioners who stayed at home. The "610 Office" [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] ordered local police precincts to request village leaders to obtain Dafa practitioners' picture ID by all kinds of means, even using deception and threats.
A policeman from Pinggu County's town precinct came to a Dafa practitioner's home to forcibly take pictures and fingerprints.
In Miyun County, lawless policemen forced Dafa practitioners to fill in and sign some forms, categorizing the practitioners as either "transformed," "almost transformed" or "determined."

On the night of August 22, policemen of Wuhan City's Hanzhong Police Precinct illegally broke into Ms. Zhao Lianzhen's home, a practitioner who is over 60 years old. They said that because she hadn't been "reformed" in the forced labor camp, she must be "reformed" [brainwashed] now. Then they forcibly took the elderly lady from her home. When Zhao Lianzhen's son went to the police precinct to intervene for his mother, the precinct authorities denied this fact and claimed they knew nothing about the case.

They arrested Dafa practitioners Mr. Shi Jinxiang, Ms. Yang Julian and Ms. Cai Mei. No further information about them has been heard since then. According to inside sources, the illegal, large-scale raid in Anxi County was jointly plotted by lawless officials and carried out at the same time. It was Li Hongwei who plotted this act of persecution, something he has many times perpetrated against Dafa practitioners.

Recently, all personnel from street administration offices, residential area offices and police stations in Shenyang City were summoned for an urgent meeting to frame Falun Gong. They ordered practitioners to submit their personal information and photos, citing no particular reason. Their purpose is to set up a computer systems database for future systematic persecution. Some places have again set up brainwashing classes.
We hope all righteous people and organizations in the world will pay attention to this matter and give us your sincere support.

[Hefei City, Anhui Province] Dafa Practitioners from Hefei City Congratulate the Establishment of Czech Republic Falun Gong Association
Immediately after the establishment of the Venezuelan Falun Dafa Association, good news came from the Czech Republic [regarding a newly established Dafa Association]. This is the mighty virtue of Dafa! This is the compassion of Teacher and at the same time shows the blessings of sentient beings.
Dafa practitioners in Hefei City congratulate you! We applaud your achievement in validating the Fa and clarifying the truth. We congratulate the establishment of the Czech Republic Falun Gong Association and the important role it will play.
Let us progress together, hand in hand, and do better in validating the Fa, clarifying the truth, and offering salvation to sentient beings. Let's totally negate the arrangements of the old forces, be worthy of Teacher's salvation and welcome the coming of the Fa-rectifying the human world.
