3. [Dalian, Liaoning Province] Falun Dafa Practitioners Please Be Aware of Surveillance Cars
Surveillance cameras have been discovered in Dalian City, and those practitioners who were targeted said: Without taking any precautions while using a laser printer, a suspicious car was seen nearby which is dark green in color and is slightly larger than a small van. The car model is unusual and there is an antenna on the roof on the driver's side. The glass is darkly tinted and you cannot see inside. This car was moving slowly around the location of the printing and it stopped for long periods of time. For those practitioners who use laser printers and photocopiers at home to print materials, please use protective measures, and do not overlook safety, so that the evil cannot take advantage of us.

8. [China] Practitioners Use Their Righteous Thoughts and Actions to Support the Global Lawsuit Against Jiang
On June 11 and 19, practitioners from a certain city hung up three nine-meter long banners. One had the words, "Falun Dafa is Good, the Whole World Knows, the Whole World is Sentencing Jiang Zemin." The other two read, "Court of Justice, Court of Conscience, Court of Humanity. Global Suing of Jiang Zemin." This has greatly shocked the evil beings.

For a long time, the Benxi City Police and "610 Office" have jointly organized brainwashing sessions inside the Weiningying Forced Labor Camp. They indiscriminately arrest practitioners from the village, and take them to the city for brainwashing. Each session runs for 15 to 30 days. Police officers used more than ten "collaborators,"* including Li Yuehua, Fu Yuzhen, Liang Jieming, Xu Qiuli, and Shen Wei, to threaten and torture practitioners, as well as slander and insult our Teacher.
Since July 20, evil people have been organizing brainwashing sessions in the Xu District to persecute Falun Dafa practitioners. Currently, practitioners Zhu Xiuming and her husband have been illegally arrested. When the police knocked on the door, Zhu Xiuming and her husband would not open it, so the police broke through a roof window of the restaurant on the second floor and unlawfully arrested the couple.
* Collaborators are former Falun Gong practitioners who have turned against Dafa due to brainwashing and torture.

On April 19, 2003, Anren County Police Chief Dun Guangtan led police officers to Yongxing County and illegally arrested thirteen Falun Dafa practitioners and five non-practitioners. The reason they were caught is that some practitioners too easily trusted people who eventually deceived them, and were not cautious about being followed by secret agents. They were thus arrested, and are now jailed at the Anren County Detention Center. Currently, there are still eight practitioners jailed at Anren: Chen Zhili, Xu Yunyan, He Yingchun, Chen Yiyuan, Cao Nengying, Cao Nengfang, Li Liumei, and Fan Xiaoguang (pronunciation only).
We have heard that due to this, the Provincial Police Department "congratulated" the Anren police by telegraph.
