[Changchun City, Jilin Province] Remembering the Deeds of Practitioner Liu Chengjun
I am a Falun Dafa practitioner from the Changchun area of Jilin Province. Due to persecution at Department No.1 of Changchun Public Security Bureau, I was transferred to the Surgery Section of Changchun Public Security Hospital on March 21, 2002. In April, Falun Gong practitioners staying in the hospital were gathered into Room 4, where I was, under the pretense of the doctor doing an examination. Liu Chengjun was handcuffed even in the hospital. But the police removed his handcuffs that day. Not long after, three people from the television station entered with the director of the Prison Executive Office. A female reporter asked Liu Chengjun several questions. Liu Chengjun did not answer in order not to be taken advantage of. When he saw the two male photographers were ready to take pictures, Liu Chengjun pulled a quilt to cover his face. He did not cooperate with the evil. At the time, the prisoner who was in charge, carried me away, and other practitioners were sent out of the room as well. After a while, I was carried back to my room. Liu Chengjun was still there. And the director of the Prison Executive Office looked very frustrated. Liu Chengjun's righteous thoughts and righteous behavior foiled the evils' scheme.

[Tonghua City, Jilin Province] Falun Dafa Practitioner Wang Guiming Tortured in Detention
Tonghua practitioner Wang Guiming was illegally arrested at Tonghua Cultural Market in the summer of 2002. He was then sentenced to seven years in prison, and jailed in Jilin Prison. During detention, Wang Guiming was persecuted with inhumane torture methods like the "Dead Man's Bed" [a kind of torture where a special bed is used to tie practitioners to---by translator] and "Riding an Airplane" [a painful torture with one's hands bent to the back and body laying on the floor---by translator] among others. He was confined in a solitary compartment, hung up and force-fed. But he never yielded to the persecution. Police guards told his family members that he was experiencing an illness called "Water in the Lungs". He is extremely weak and has been sent to Jilin Prison Administrative Central Hospital. But, his family members are not allowed to see him.

According to practitioners' analysis, this meeting had something to do with Jiang's visit to Changsha City a while ago.
[Jilin Province] Suggestion of Sending Forth Righteous Thoughts at the Top of 7:00 pm, 8:00 pm and 9:00 pm Every Day
Recently, Dafa practitioner Liu Chengjun's life is in great danger due to persecution, which makes us become more clear in mind that the persecution is going on all the time. Zhao Guifeng, detained at Hezuizi Prison, has been on a hunger strike for many days. When she was force-fed recently, the pipe could not be inserted into her nose any longer due to the wounds cause by the force-feeding. However, the evil refused to release her. Zhang Zhongyu, a practitioner from Dalian City has been on a hunger strike for days at the Tiebei Detention Center and his life is in great danger now. At the Shuangyang Detention Center, needles were used to penetrate through practitioners' ten fingers until they touched practitioners' finger joints. Then the needles were turned constantly. This is one of the most vicious torture methods. One female practitioner was tortured this way for a whole month simply because she went on a hunger strike, protesting the illegal detention.
[Shenyang City, Liaoning Province] Team Two of the Longshan Forced Labor Camp Persecutes Falun Dafa Practitioners Brutally
Tang Yubao, vice head of Team Two of the Longshan Forced Labor Camp often beat up practitioners who insisted on their beliefs. Jiang Yingxin was beaten up for not giving up her belief. She went on a hunger strike protesting the persecution. She became extremely weak after two months of hunger striking. Even her blood vessels became flat and hard to find when she was given an intravenous drip. She was sent to a hospital recently. We don't know whether she is still alive or not.
Wang Lijuan's detention was extended three months after completion of consecutive terms in Team Two. In addition, the police had a group of criminal prisoners beat her up. They beat and kicked her from the third floor to the main floor. Consequently, her head was seriously wounded, and now, her head keeps shaking uncontrollably. She suffered a lot mentally as well.
Tang Yubao is directly responsible for the persecution.

[Baicheng City, Jilin Province] Concerns About Practitioner Wang Jingang's Life
Wang Jingang, 25 years old, from Baicheng City, is a former student of the Arts Department of Jilin Engineering Institute. In August 1999, he went to Beijing to appeal for Falun Dafa. After he came back from Beijing, he was dismissed from the school. In October 2001, he was illegally arrested for distributing truth-clarifying materials at Erdaozi District of Changchun City. It has been two years since then. Nobody knows where he is. His family members and friends worry about his life and have been looking for him everywhere.
The Erdaozi Public Security Branch in Changchun City has illegally sentenced many Falun Dafa practitioners to forced labor and prison. Some practitioners were persecuted to death. The Erdaozi Public Security Branch should be held fully responsible for the disappearance of Wang Jingang.
[Changchun City, Jilin Province] Chaoyanggou Forced Labor Camp Overworks Falun Gong Practitioners
Currently, Team Three of the Chaoyanggou Forced Labor Camp has a contract for making paper products (one time use for covering toilets) for export. In order to make more profit, practitioners are forced to work a long time every day including weekends unless there is a shortage of raw materials or the machine is broken. Practitioners are not allowed to rest after meals. Except for the three meals, practitioners work about twelve hours a day without rest. Plus, they have to count the numbers while folding the paper products. They usually have a headache, sore limbs and cannot see things clearly after a day's work.
Practitioners are not just overworked without rest, but they also are constantly forced to increase their workloads. The camp uses threats, intimidation and physical abuse to keep everyone working.
In order to manufacture more products, practitioners were forced to work during the National Day holidays. On October 2, before the officers from the Judicial Bureau came to inspect, police guards told practitioners, "If you are asked why you work during holidays, you should answer that you work voluntarily."

At the local detention center, they went on a hunger strike for over ten days and became very weak. However, they were sent to the Xingtai Brainwashing Class anyway. The brainwashing class didn't accept them for fear that they might have to take responsibility if the practitioners died in the class. However, the "610 Office" reported to Qu Bing, Party Secretary of Shahe Politics & Law Committee who insisted that the brainwashing class accept the practitioners for intensified persecution in spite of the weakness of the three practitioners on hunger strike.
[Jinan City, Shandong Province] Criminal Misconduct of the "610 Office" at Linpan Oil Drilling Plant

Every day, she was forced to labor over ten hours. Sometimes, she has to work until midnight and start early again the next morning.

After exchanging experiences with fellow practitioners, she realized that she was wrong and declared solemnly that the statement she wrote was null and void. In early 2002, she went to Beijing to validate Dafa again. After that, she was arrested again and detained with Team Five of the Shijiazhuang Forced Labor Camp. Her current situation is yet unknown.
