[Jize County, Hebei Province] Nine Dafa Practitioners in the Jize Detention Center Go on a Hunger Strike Together to Resist Persecution
On January 14, 2003, female Dafa practitioner Ms. Li Juxia, Aunt San, Xiao Min, and six other Dafa practitioners, from Jize County, Hebei Province were arrested from their practice site by Jiao Hongbin, the director of Xiaozhai Township's Police Precinct in Jize County. Lawless policemen of Jize County's Police Department aided and abetted in this crime. This is the third time that Li Juxia and the Aunt San were illegally detained. These seven Dafa practitioners from Jize County and two other Dafa practitioners went on a hunger strike together to resist the persecution. Now they are detained at Jize County's Detention Center.

[China] Dafa Practitioners Xu Na, Gao Feng, Li Liang and Li Hong are Illegally Sentenced to Forced Labor
On August 2001, Ms. Xu Na, a Dafa practitioner from the Fangshan District in Beijing was illegally arrested. She was sentenced to five years of imprisonment, but she remains steadfast to her belief.
Mr. Gao Feng, from Lanzhou City, Gansu Province was arrested at the end of November 2000. He was illegally sentenced to four years of imprisonment.
Mr. Li Liang, from Tianjing City, was arrested at the end of November 1999. He was sentenced to one and a half years of forced labor. As he did not yield to the evils, his term was already extended three times and eventually reached three years of imprisonment, which was the longest forced labor term. After he was sent to a brainwashing class, his whereabouts have been unknown. His sister, Ms. Li Hong, had been illegally put in a forced labor camp for two years. Last year before October 1, she was again sent to a forced labor camp for two and a half years.
Please send forth righteous thoughts to help them.
[Jinzhou City, Liaoning Province] Lawless Officers from the Lingnan Police Precinct Kidnap Dafa Practitioner Ma Haichao and His Relatives
At noon of January 29, 2003 (two days before Chinese Spring Festival), several lawless policemen from Jinzhou City's Lingnan Police Precinct in Liaoning Province unreasonably broke into Dafa practitioner Mr. Ma Haichao's home, kidnapped him and his parents-in-law who were visiting him and took them to Jinzhou City's Detention Center. After being illegally detained for half a month, he was transferred to Jinzhou City's No.1 Detention Center. In order to resist the evil persecution, Ma Haichao went on a hunger strike for several days. Now his situation is very critical.
[Chendu City, Sichuan Province] Dafa Practitioners in the Jinjiang District are Held for Persecution at a Brainwashing Center
Officials in the Jinjiang District of Chendu City, Sichuan Province relentlessly persecute Dafa practitioners. At the beginning of September 2002, they set up a brainwashing center, named "Jinjiang District's Law Training Class," which is located in the former Drug Rehabilitation Center of the 110th Violence Defense Team at Chengren Road in Chendu City. Nine practitioners used to be detained there and five practitioners are still illegally detained at this location. Among them, two male Dafa practitioners have been locked up over 70 days without permission to contact anyone outside the center just because they insisted on clarifying the truth to the vicious officials.
The two male Dafa practitioners are Mr. Qiu Taikun, 72 years old, a senior engineer, and Mr. Jia Zhijun, 54 years old, an old ex-serviceman.
Three other Dafa practitioners are females; Ms. Yan Ruizhen, 62 years old, Ms. Xiao Guiying, 50 years old and Ms. Tang Pilan, 62 years old.
In order to prevent Dafa practitioners from practicing the exercises or going on a hunger strike, the brainwashing center equipped every cell with an electronic monitor and "tapping" machine. The officials even ordered doctors to prepare utensils for force-feeding.
The person previously in charge of the center is Bao Bin, director of Jinjiang District's Justice Bureau. The person in charge at present is Director Guo (or Ge).
Officials of the"610 Office:" director Xu and director Zhu Hongming [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].
[Fuxin City, Liaoning Province] Dafa Practitioners Geng Shufeng and Chen Chao are Kidnapped to the Xindi Detention Center
Prior to the Chinese Spring Festival, some vicious people reported Dafa Practitioners Ms. Geng Shufeng and Ms. Chen Chao to police while they were distributing Dafa truth-clarifying materials. They were kidnapped to Fuxin City's Xindi Detention Center. The two practitioners are very determined. It's said that the corrupt officials are planning to send them to a forced labor camp for further persecution.
[Donggang City, Liaoning Province] Lawless Officials and Police Persecute Dafa Practitioners
Since July 22, 1999, government officials and police from Donggang City have relentlessly persecuted local Dafa practitioners. They often ransack practitioners' homes, kidnap practitioners, force them to write the so-called "Repentance Statement" and "Disassociation Statement," force them to supply fingerprints on documents, hold surveillance stake-outs at certain spots to arrest practitioners, follow them, tear down Dafa flyers, routinely threaten Dafa practitioners and torture practitioners both physically and mentally. The policemen's words and deeds are extremely vile and they often slander Dafa and practitioners.
At the beginning of September 1999, in order to intensify the persecution, the local police applied a series of means to arrest Dafa practitioners in Dagushan Town, Donggang City. There was a fabricated article allegedly written by Master circulating among practitioners saying, "On the morning of September 9, all Dafa practitioners should bring their clothes and go outside to see the cosmic changes," etc. Most Dafa practitioners were not moved by the vicious policemen's evil deed of deliberately destroying Dafa and they knew that it was the conspiracy of the local government and police, so they didn't go out. However, some practitioners were deceived into going out. The police drove up in their police wagon and arrested all practitioners on the street. They forcibly took the practitioners to the police department without going through any procedures. On that day, they arrested 18 Falun Gong practitioners. The practitioners were extremely determined, and the police were unable to shake their faith. Seeing that none of the practitioners compromised, the lawless government officials were furious and ordered policemen to forcibly send them to a detention center and later on transferred them to a custody center. They tortured Dafa practitioners both physically and mentally for as long as 45 days.
[Dengzhou City, Henan Province] Arrest of Veteran Dafa Practitioner Fu Zhenyu
At midnight of December 17, 2002, according to the Chinese lunar calendar, veteran Dafa practitioner Fu Zhenyu, a farmer from Fuying Village, Dusi Township, Dengzhou City, Henan Province, was awakened by a loud noise of hammering on his door. Right after that, a group of policemen climbed in (who claimed to be from Dengzhou City's Police Department and Dousi Township's Police Station). They punched and kicked Mr. Fu and arrested him. They even beat and cursed Mr. Fu's wife. Without showing any search warrant, they turned the house upside down.
[Dengzhou City, Henan Province] Persecution Experience of Dafa Practitioner Fu Xiuyun
Dafa Practitioner Ms. Fu Xiuyun from Dengzhou City, a laid off worker, has been forced to leave home and go from place to place for 22 months to avoid persecution, simply because she persisted in cultivating Falun Dafa.
Ms. Fu Xiuyun and her husband are both laid off workers. There are very poor. The husband had to earn a living by providing tricycle taxi service. Ms. Fu had begun cultivating because of an illness.
From December 2000 to April 2001, Dengzhou City's Police Department held a four-month long brainwashing class. Dozens of Dafa practitioners were arrested. Fu Xiuyun and another two practitioners had steadfast belief in Dafa and refused to compromise. The vicious personnel attempted to intensify the persecution by sending them to a forced labor camp. With a righteous mind, Fu Xiuyun walked out of the brainwashing class to resist the evil persecution. She was forced to leave home to avoid further persecution. A happy and harmonious family was thus torn apart by the current political scoundrel's regime. In order to avoid the vicious policemen's harassment, Fu's husband left home and went to another place to earn a living. Their only son was sent to his grandfather's home in the countryside. Similar family situations are countless in China.
We hereby sternly inform the director of the Dengzhou City's Police Department: your predecessor helped a tyrant to do evil and received retribution by being arrested for taking bribes; he received retribution because he persecuted Dafa practitioners who never fight back when being beaten or sworn at. Good and evil will be returned respectively. Don't lose your conscience for some personal gains. Please bear in mind: Falun Dafa is an orthodox Fa (Law)! Good and evil will be returned respectively is a law of heaven. Please treat Dafa practitioners well!
[Lincheng County, Zhejiang Province] Arrest of Practitioner Liu Zhicai
- During the afternoon of January 8, 2003, someone reported practitioner Ms. Liu Zhicai from Lincheng County to police when she went to Baixiang County to clarify the truth about Dafa. She was arrested and taken to Baixiang County's Police Department. The next day they sent to her Lincheng County's Detention Center. Ms. Liu went on a hunger strike to protest the illegal detention.
- Wang Su'e from the Political and Security Section from Baixiang County's Police Department often ransacks practitioners' homes and takes away practitioners' personal belongings.
[Handan City, Hebei Province] Higher Government Authorities Assign "Death Quota;" Vicious Policemen Torture Practitioners
In September 2002, people from a police precinct in Handan City, Hebei Province illegally arrested Falun Dafa practitioners. The practitioners went on a hunger strike to protest the persecution. The policemen claimed, "Listen, we got a "three deaths counts" assignment from higher government authorities. We have not used them yet. We are not afraid of your hunger strikes!"
No wonder some areas often have cases of practitioners being tortured to death! Some vicious policemen were accepting this order of a "death count quota" without any scruples. We hope people who learn of this information will reveal the fact that Jiang's political gang of scoundrels are perpetrating premeditated murder of Falun Gong practitioners. We hope to provide more evidence to sue Jiang Zemin and the "610" terrorist organization.
[Fushun City, Liaoning Province] Need for Urgent Rescue of Practitioner Li Feng and His Wife Liu Mingzhen
On January 27, 2003, officials from Xinbin County's "610 Office" instigated policemen from Xinbin County's Police Department to arrest practitioners Mr. Li Feng and his wife Ms. Liu Mingzhen at home. Mr. Li and his wife are now detained at Xinbin County's Detention Center, and could be sent to a forced labor camp.
Their daughter, also a practitioner, is living in Singapore. We hope she receives the news and asks the Singapore government, the Global Mission for Rescuing Falun Gong Practitioners, international human rights organizations and all kind-hearted people to help rescue Li Feng and his wife Liu Mingzhen.
[Fushun City, Liaoning Province] Many Fushun City Dafa Practitioners Eliminate the Evil Together and Further Expose the Persecution
Recently, the institutions that persecute Dafa practitioners in Fushun City of Lianing Province, including the "610 Office," jails, labor camps and detention centers, became rampant and relentless. They imposed unlawful sentences, one after another, on some Dafa practitioners detained in Fushun City's Detention Center, such as against Mr. Zhang Huiqiang from Fushun City and Luu Renqing from Xinbin County. They also used brutal tortures on practitioners. Practitioners are beaten, detained, put into forced labor camps or sentenced to imprisonment, only because these Dafa practitioners are determined in their belief in Truthfulness-Compassion-Tolerance, clarifying the truth and exercising their citizen's rights.
[Changchun City, Jilin Province] Over 200 Practitioners are Imprisoned at No. 4 Division, A Separate Branch of the Heizuizi Women's Jail
Changchun City's Heizuizi Women's Jail has been overcrowded. More than 200 people are detained in Division No.4 alone. Among them are only two criminals, the rest are Falun Gong practitioners. Due to a shortage of guards during the Chinese Spring Festival, 200 cadets from a local police school were sent in to assist in monitoring the detainees. The persecution against Falun Gong practitioners escalated while people were celebrating the Chinese New Year. Practitioners were questioned, "Do you plan to continue to practice or not?" Practitioners whose answer was "yes" would suffer all kinds of abuses.
[Yantai City, Shandong Province] Kidnapping of Dafa Practitioner Sun Hui
At noon on February 17, 2003, some wicked police officers from Fushan District, Yantai City, rushed into Dafa practitioner Mr. Sun Hui's apparel store and unlawfully arrested him. May those Dafa practitioners who read this news send forth righteous thoughts to help this fellow practitioner.
[Suining City, Sichuan Province] Unlawful Arrest of Dafa Practitioner Liu Rong from Shahe Town by Wicked Police Officers in Mianyang City
Recently, wicked police officers from Mianyang City arrested Dafa practitioner Liu Rong from Shahe Town, Suining City, Sichuan Province. He is currently being held in Suining City's National Security Bureau without cause.
[Suining City, Sichuan Province] Overseas Dafa Practitioners Making Phone Calls to All Work Units in Suining City Greatly Shocks the Lawless Personnel
After Clearwisdom Net posted the news in February 2003 that Dafa practitioner Mr. Peng Fangjian from Suining City, Sichuan Province was tortured to death on February 10, and published the telephone numbers of some people responsible for murder, Dafa practitioners took action. From all over the world, they successively made phone calls to all work units in Suining City, which greatly shocked the lawless personnel, effectively exposed the evil, eliminated the evil elements in other dimensions and encouraged the local Dafa practitioners.
All Dafa practitioners in Suining City thank overseas fellow practitioners! We will also continuously send righteous thoughts to eliminate the remaining evils in other dimensions together with you! We will expose the evils more deeply and reveal their villainous deeds to people around the world. All Dafa practitioners in Suining City hope that the "World Organization to Investigate the Persecution of Falun Gong" will pay attention to this matter and investigate those vicious persons. Reports regarding this matter will also be sent to Clearwisdom Net and be forwarded to the "Fa Wang Hui Hui" web [the Chinese database of criminals who are involved in the persecution of Falun Dafa] as well as the "World Organization to Investigate the Persecution of Falun Gong." At present, the corrupt officials are very nervous. Nevertheless, Renli Town, practitioner Peng Fangjian's hometown, is still under terrorism.
[Benxi City, Liaoning Province] The Weiningying Forced Labor Camp in Benxi City Holds Over a Dozen Brainwashing Classes; Hundreds of Practitioners Tortured
The Weiningying Forced Labor Camp is a dark den of persecution. It has held over a dozen brainwashing classes to persecute Dafa practitioners; hundreds suffered persecution.
In addition, some determined practitioners from other provinces were also transferred to the Rehabilitation Center in the Weiningying Forced Labor Camp to be tortured. Labor camp director Liu Shaoshi spares no efforts to persecute Dafa practitioners. He is extremely cruel and will adopt whatever vicious means are at his disposal, such as forcing Dafa practitioners to step on Teacher's photo. For practitioners who refused to cooperate, the vicious policemen and collaborators [former Falun Gong practitioners who have gone astray due to brainwashing and torture] lifted them by their two arms and dropped them forcefully on Teacher's photo.
It's said that recently the Weiningying Forced Labor Camp set up a brainwashing base for the city-wide persecution. They planned to work on all Dafa practitioners in the city and force them to compromise. Practitioners in Benxi City: please be alert! Let's take action to collectively send forth righteous thoughts and break their vicious scheme.
The collaborators who helped the Weiningying Forced Labor Camp authorities persecute Dafa practitioners include Li Yuehua, Kang Yueling, Liang Jiming, Li Chengjun, Fu Yuzhen, Yang Hong and Liu Yanchun.
[China] Director of a County "610 Office": "The city '610 Office' is running out of money. We are ordered to arrest two more Falun Gong people."
The dialogue below was between two officials when the director of a county "610 Office" was reporting to the deputy secretary of the county party committee in charge of political and law affairs. The director said, "the city "610 Office" is running out of money. They told us to get two more people." (Referring to arresting and sending Dafa practitioners to a brainwashing class, and forcing practitioners to hand in money in order to pay the enforcers' expenses and bonus.)
The deputy secretary said, "Running out of money? Let's get two people."
The director had a hesitant expression on his face, "The Police Department and National Security Bureau are a little afraid of arrest." (Because almost all practitioners they know had been arrested, and they have no idea whom they should arrest again)
Note: Every brainwashing class held by the "610 Office" all over the country is composed of a gang of ruffians. Part of these people's salaries and bonuses comes from funds specially allotted by the Treasury Department and part of it is paid from the fines they extort from Dafa practitioners. This gang is very well paid. Not only do they have a salary but also overtime pay and bonuses. If they think the fund or their bonus is not enough, they greedily concoct ways to arrest more practitioners. Just like the above dialogue, the city "610 Office" would order the "610 Offices" in the counties under their jurisdiction. Whenever they run out of money, they arrest some more practitioners. In their crooked minds, Dafa practitioners are their ready sources of income to make a fortune. It's very lamentable that these lawless, unconscionable people only know how to help the tyrant to do evil, but don't know that good and evil will have respective rewards and punishments, and those vicious people will have a miserable end.
