[Harbin City, Heilongjiang Province] Attention to Fellow Practitioners in Harbin City
According to reliable source, the persecutors have divided Harbin City into 300 "districts" and arranged 300 plainclothes policemen to operate throughout these "districts" in an attempt to make a breach in arresting Falun Dafa practitioners. The 300 police roam around and are ready to abduct Falun Dafa practitioners at any time. It is said there is a plainclothes policeman at each store that sells blank CDs. We hope that fellow practitioners will pay attention to the security issue.

[Shifang City, Sichuan Province] The "610 Office" Detains Falun Dafa Practitioners
Before October 1, staff from the "610 Office" and police from the Liaolukou Police Substation in Shifang City made a surprise search of places that Falun Dafa practitioners live in Liangshuijing Village of Lianglukou Town. At the time, several practitioners were studying the Fa together. A policeman knocked down one practitioner and took away Dafa books and truth-clarifying materials. As far as we know, local practitioner Ma Guoying and a female practitioner were abducted. Besides, some practitioners got the notice about sending them to the Qingbaijiang Brainwashing Base in Chengdu City. Fellow practitioners who are involved, please resist the arrangements of the persecutors with your righteous thoughts. Other practitioners who see this news please help send forth righteous thoughts and eradicate the evil elements in other dimensions that are persecuting Falun Dafa practitioners.

[Lianping County, Guangdong Province] Ms. He Quanfang Illegally Detained
Ms. He Quanfang is from Lianping County of Guangdong Province. She started to practice Falun Dafa in 1999. In early September of this year, she was handling business in the store. The "610 Office" clerks came to her store and asked her to write so-called "statement of guarantee" to give up cultivation practice of Falun Dafa. She didn't cooperate with the wrongdoers. The next day, over a dozen people from the "610 Office" suddenly appeared at her store and forcibly abducted her. It is heard that she is being detained in the Sanshui Brainwashing Center.
[Shenyang City, Liaoning Province] Xia Yulan Is Being Detained in the Longshan Forced Labor Camp
Ms. Xia Yulan, a Shenyang practitioner in her fifties, was illegally arrested for going to Beijing to appeal for Falun Dafa in 1999. She was sent to the Masanjia Forced Labor Camp. The CCTV "Focus" program interviewed her over a period of five hours in Masanjia, and she answered all questions completely from the perspective of Dafa.
She was detained in Masanjia over a year and released in the spring of 2001. She immediately rejoined the current of Fa-rectification and organized many Fa-study groups. In April 2002, she was arrested again due to the betrayal of former practitioners who had given up their belief under high pressure and brutal persecution. Her husband and daughter were arrested at the same time.
Currently she is being detained in Team One of Longshan Forced Labor Camp in Shenyang City. She is being subjected to all means of torture but remains steadfast in her belief.
[Huludao City, Liaoning Province] Police in Longgang District and Local "610 Office" Attempt to Abduct Falun Dafa Practitioners
On October 14, police from Beigang Town of Longgang District, together with local "610 office" clerks, broke into some Falun Dafa practitioners' home. Practitioners wholeheartedly resisted the persecutors and none of them were taken away to the brainwashing class.

Wang Hongkui, head of National Security Team in Boyuquan District of Yingkou City, and the thugs under his leadership, closely follow Jiang Zemin in persecuting Dafa practitioners. Below are some of the crimes they committed.
Whenever Wang Hongkui and his people ran out of money, they started to extort money from Dafa practitioners. They would arrest Dafa practitioners for whatever reason they made up. Then they would extort from 5,000 to 20,000 yuan from practitioners' family members.
In late January 2003, Wang Hongkui illegally arrested practitioner Mr. Li Guang and his family members (there was a materials-producing site set up at his home). With the exception of releasing his grandfather and brother who do not practice Falun Dafa, his father was sentenced to eight years in prison, his mother seven years and he himself seven years.

When asked for the saving account, the practitioner's family member was extorted of 6,000 yuan before it was returned. According to fellow practitioners, such things occur frequently to Falun Dafa practitioners there.
[Beijing City] Changping Weekly Defames Falun Dafa
Changping Weekly in Beijing defames Falun Dafa. The whole newspaper is full of articles attacking Dafa. The newspaper is delivered to every resident's mailbox and poisons many people who don't know the truth. The most vicious part of the newspaper is a large number of so-called "denouncement" articles from practitioners who were forced to write when they were not clear-minded, after long-term torture and brainwashing. These practitioners' photos are published on the paper as well. We hope that practitioners who see this news will send forth righteous thoughts together, eliminating the vicious elements and the behind-the-scenes factors controlling Changping Weekly.
