1. [China] Prisons and Forced Labor Camps Attempt to Reform Steadfast Falun Gong Practitioners by Force
Beginning in October 2003, Jiang Zemin's followers issued secret documents, ordering the utilization of any type of method that would reform steadfast Falun practitioners that are being detained in prisons. Such methods are at this time in full use in those prisons. There are hundreds of practitioners illegally detained in Liaoning Province because they wouldn't cave in under this pressure. They are now suffering inhuman torture. They are isolated, denied sleep, denied the use of the bathroom, forced to sit straight for long periods of time, strung up by their arms and feet dangling in the air, suffering electric torture, wearing heavy shackles, being kept in narrow confinement, or tied up on a metal bed for extended periods of time. The lives of many practitioners are in danger, and yet they are denied medical attention. "Give in or get nothing." This is how the police explain their cruel torture.

3. [Harbin City, Heilongjiang Province] Practitioner Mr. Li Chenyang Is Still Illegally Detained
Mr. Li Chenyang, nearly 40 years old, is a practitioner from Nangang District, Harbin City, Heilongjiang Province. He has a Master's Degree in Computer Science. He was employed at the Bank of China in Heilongjiang Province. He has been imprisoned twice at the Nangang District Detention Center simply for practicing Falun Gong. After his release from the detention center in September of 2000, he was forced to become homeless to avoid further persecution.
In June 2001, Li was arrested in Zhengzhou, Henan Province, and was held in a local labor camp for a year. Since he refused to give up practicing Falun Gong, his term was extended for another year. He was transferred to the labor camp in Xuchang City in Henan Province. On June 19, 2003, his illegal prison term had expired. On June 21, 2003, the local police and people from his work place took him back to Harbin. They refused to release him and did not allow his family to visit him. They detained him at the Nangang District Detention Center again. On September 16, 2003, they sent him to Inner Mongolia without notifying his family. He is still being detained there under the excuse of assessing his condition.

Mu kicked Li in the face. Chen punched and kicked Li in the head. Zhang kicked Li's leg and handcuffed him to a bed. Later, they sent Li to the brainwashing class in Changchun Legal School.

Otherwise, they said they would detain him. Li was forced to give in. He was set free on that day but was fined 400 Chinese Yuan. [The average monthly income of an urban worker is 500 Chinese Yuan.]

8. [Pingdingshan City, Henan Province] Plot of the "610 Office" in Mine No.13 to Persecute Practitioners Fails
Mine No. 13 of the Coal Mine Group in Pingdingshan City, Henan Province, set up a "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 June of 2003, two practitioners were detained for brainwashing by the "610 Office" at the mine's hostel. The "610 Office" used a number of deceptive methods, including threatening them with labor camp and jail, as well as pressure from their families. But, all of this came to naught. The two steadfast practitioners walked out of the "610 Office" with their heads held high.

A man from Bi County Industrial Institute in Chengdu City, Sichuan Province, claimed to be a practitioner. He said he had not read Master's scriptures and articles from Clearwisdom.net since July 20, 1999, the beginning of the persecution. Early in October of 2003, he won the trust of a new practitioner named Jiang. Jiang and Jing Changhui were set up, as the police arrested them when they delivered Dafa materials to this pretender. Jing Changhui is the high school teacher in Yongqing of Anyue County, Sichuan Province. He is now detained at Anyue County Detention Center. Police from Yongqing Police Station searched his home but didn't find anything.

The farmers and village officials all said that Jing Changhui was widely recognized as a good person. They hope he would be set free soon.
