Seven Large Trees Cut Down Simply To Prevent Falun Dafa Practitioners from Hanging Banners
During the 3-year persecution of Falun Dafa and Falun Dafa practitioners, the lawless officials from Babaishang Property Management Company in the Honggang District of Daqing City repeatedly used the company's police officers as well as personnel from the "610 Office" [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] to arrest Falun Dafa practitioners and send them to police stations, prisons, and brainwashing classes. These officials relentlessly spied on and followed practitioners, sometimes going to their homes to make arrests and sometimes making phone calls to harass and threaten practitioners' family members. They forced practitioners to write "promise statements" to give up Falun Dafa, stopped paying their salaries and bonuses, and even imposed fines on them.
The Director of Babaishang Property Management Company also hired people to remove Falun Dafa truth-clarifying posters. Outside workers were also hired to take down Falun Dafa banners, some of which were hung in the tops of tall trees and could not be easily reached, so the Babaishang officials had the huge trees cut down so that the banners could be removed. In one instance, there were seven enormous trees in a residential compound with Falun Dafa banners hanging from each one. All seven of these big trees were toppled. They will really do anything in order to maintain this evil persecution.
