[Changchun City, Jilin Province] Falun Dafa Practitioners in Changchun Display Truth-Clarifying Banners Many Times

Recently, Falun Dafa practitioners in Changchun, Jilin Province, displayed six truth-clarifying banners in the residential buildings. The local police were extremely frightened and called out a large number of officers and vehicles to conduct a search but to no avail. In the same area several days later, the Dafa practitioners hung a truth-clarifying banner across from the police station. Once again, a large number of police gathered and blocked off the area for the entire day, but to their extreme embarrassment didn't find anything. Several days later, Dafa practitioners displayed the truth-clarifying banner in the same area for the third time and then safely left. When locals reported that somebody had hung banners there again, the discouraged police retorted, "We are not going to take care of it. You decide what to do!"

[Changchun City, Jilin Province] Falun Dafa Practitioner Guo Lijun Is Illegally Arrested for Distributing Truth-clarifying Materials

Guo Lijun was an employee of the Tuberculosis Hospital in Changchun City, Jilin Province. On the afternoon of August 5, while was distributing truth-clarifying materials with her 11-year-old son, she was turned in to the police. Two plainclothes policemen arrested her and sent her to Xi'an Square Police Station. Her family knew nothing of the arrest and searched all over for her. At 10 p.m., several policemen escorted the boy home and ransacked the house, but found nothing. The police did not give up and ransacked her home again the next day, but still didn't find anything. The police took the child back to the police station but did not allow him to see his mother. They threatened and manipulated the boy, asking him where his mother got the Dafa materials. The child was so scared that he told them. The police went to the location he had described, but nobody was there, so they arrested an elderly lady next door. As soon as they started to interrogate the elderly lady at the police station, she fainted. Then the police called her family to come and take her home. The police didn't get anything from Guo Lijun. They brutally beat and kicked her and sent her to Daguang Detention Center. They sentenced her to one year and nine months in a forced labor camp. The police asked Guo's family for their signatures of acknowledgement, but they refused.
