[Shenyang City, Liaoning Province] Dafa Practitioner Ms. Zhou Haiyan is Held Indefinitely at the Masanjia Forced Labor Camp
Zhou Haiyan is a 37-year-old Dafa practitioner from Dalian City's Development Zone in Liaoning Province. On October 1, 2000, she went to Tiananmen Square to validate Dafa, and was later detained in Dalian City's Zhoushuizi Forced Labor Camp. As she refused to cooperate with evildoers who attempted to force her to renounce her belief, she was transferred to the Masanjia Forced Labor Camp in April of 2001, where she suffered all kinds of torture. Her term expired on October 1st, but so far she is still being detained indefinitely.
Zhou Haiyan's father-in-law is in the late stages of cancer and on the brink of death. He worries about the safety of his daughter-in-law. Personnel at Masanjia have been extending her term again and again. Zhou Haiyan's family is anxious and angry.

It has been two months that she has been forced to endure this program. Practitioners were tortured in this class - they were subjected to forcible exposure under the burning sun, forced to run for extended periods of time and not allowed to take a shower, even during female practitioners' menstrual cycle.

Ms. Li Jianguo is a Dafa practitioner from Zhao County in Hebei Province. In October, after she was released from a forced labor camp in October, the perpetrators again unlawfully took her away from home, breaking the law once more, and sent her to the Shijiazhuang City Brainwashing Center.
Since a brainwashing center was established in Xinji City, Hebei Province, Dafa practitioners were continuously taken against their will and detained here. In October, at least two Dafa practitioners were illegally taken to the brainwashing center, but one escaped with the power of righteous thoughts.

[China] Overseas Phone Calls are Powerful
I'm a Dafa practitioner and I have received two truth-clarifying phone calls from overseas practitioners. I was encouraged a lot. I felt in my heart that Dafa practitioners at home and abroad are one whole body. I hope more people can be redeemed and that those accomplices who help the tyrants to do evil will have their conscience awakened and stop their evildoings.
