[Donggang City, Liaoning Province] Former Student From Dalian University of Foreign Languages Suffers a Torture-Induced Mental Breakdown
Wang Qiang, a Falun Gong practitioner who lived in Tufang Village, Qianyang Town, Donggang City, Liaoning Province was a student at Dalian University of Foreign Languages. He is 27 years old and was illegally detained in 1999 for appealing for Dafa in Beijing. The perpetrators of Jiang's orders to persecute Falun Dafa cruelly tortured him at Donggang City Detention Center and at the Dandong Labor Camp. Mr. Wang had a serious mental collapse as a result. He has completely lost his memory and his ability to speak and cannot take care of himself.
[Wuhan City, Hubei Province] Perpetrators at the Etouwan Brainwashing Class Hang up and Torment Elderly Dafa Practitioners
It has been two months since police arrested Ms. Peng Xiuzhen, a Dafa practitioner in her 70s, who lived in Shiqiaokou District, Wuhan City, Hubei Province. They sent her to the Etouwan Brainwashing Class in Wuhan City. The perpetrators never allowed any family visits. Because Ms. Peng Xiuzhen refused to give up her belief in Dafa, the police tied her hands behind her back and hung her up with her feet above the ground. When her family went to visit her, the police didn't allow them to see her. Later, the family saw Ms. Peng walk out of the classroom, helped by two other people, and she looked extremely haggard and weak. The family cried and said to the police, "She was very healthy when she was arrested! If she dies, we will sue you!"

[Gaoyi County, Hebei Province] Personnel from the "610 Office" Illegally Arrest Dafa Practitioner Guo Xinxian
Recently, the officials from Gaoyi County's "610 Office" in Hebei Province have been constantly going to Dafa practitioner Mr. Guo Xinxian's home to harass him [the "610 Office" is an agency specifically created to persecute Falun Gong, with absolute power over each level of administration in the Party and all other political and judiciary systems]. On November 5, 2003, a group of agents from the local "610 Office" jumped over the wall of Guo Xinxian's home in Xibeiying Village and abducted Mr. Guo. They detained him at Gaoyi County Detention Center. Sources say Mr. Guo is currently holding a hunger strike to protest the illegal detention. In 2000, Guo Xinxian was sent to a forced labor camp, as punishment for going to Beijing to appeal.

Tonghua City's Railway Crew sent Falun Gong practitioners in their work unit to Shenyang City, Liaoning Province. Their exact location is unknown. We assume it is probably a brainwashing class.

At around 3:00 p.m. on November 12, 2003, personnel from the "610 Office" went to Dafa practitioner Ms. Zhang Huifen's home and attempted to take her to a brainwashing class. They were refused and failed to take her away. Then they assigned people to take turns to stake out the building around the clock. From November 12 to 17, they besieged Ms. Zhang for those five days and nights. This practitioner managed to escape with the power of her righteous thoughts. When the agents found out, they went to harass the practitioner's husband at work and interfered with his normal work routine.
They also often harass Ms. Zhang's family members and relatives. Now her family members are harassed so badly that they are unable to go home.

[China] Dafa Practitioners Hold an Experience-Sharing Meeting
After Teacher published the comments of two articles "Golden Buddha" and "Expose the Evil Happening Locally to the Local People," we practitioners divided our city into three districts and successfully held three experience-sharing meetings, one in each district. About 20 practitioners took part in each district's meeting where we discussed our understanding of the Fa, the power of sending forth righteous thoughts and methods for clarifying the truth. After communicating with each other, we clearly understood that in order to rescue more people, we should thoroughly expose local evildoers and effectively expose their evil deeds, as well as do well the three things Teacher requires of us -- study the Fa, expose the facts of the persecution and send forth righteous thoughts.
