Police arrested Dafa practitioner Mr. Xu Guiliang and his wife for practicing Dafa, and they were brutally tortured during detention.

In order to try to force Dafa practitioners to renounce their faith, in June and July 2003, Chengdu City's Military District police transferred Dafa practitioners Ms. Zhou Lin and Ms. Zhao Wenjie. These two ladies had been detained at the Political Section of the Military District for over a year. The perpetrators moved them to Zizhong City's Nanmusi Female Labor Camp for further persecution. Practitioner Zhao Wenjie held a hunger strike from late April to early June to protest the persecution, so she was very weak. During a physical examination she was found to be in very poor health, and the Nanmusi Female Labor Camp officials refused to accept her.

More than 20 practitioners were sent to labor camps, their homes were ransacked and they were fined. Many practitioners' families became destitute because of the persecution. Qiao Linghuai, a thug who took part in the persecution even said, "See! Falun Gong practitioners' families are all poor."

Around July 20, 2003, Dafa practitioners from a certain place in China successfully held an experience-sharing conference. In the past four years, no matter how perilous the situation was, Dafa practitioners have persevered sturdily in validating Dafa, clarifying the facts and saving sentient being; their belief in Truthfulness-Compassion-Tolerance has never altered a bit. During the two-day conference, they studied Teacher's recent lectures and Zhuan Falun, and shared experiences. Practitioners had in-depth sharing on righteous thoughts and righteous actions (from the perspectives of security, righteous thoughts and spending money), finding one's attachments, getting rid of one's loopholes, and cooperating as one body, and gained a clearer understanding on the Fa. The conference was filled with compassion and serenity. Some were moved to tears when hearing others' experience sharing. Gaps amongst practitioners disappeared in this righteous field. Practitioners achieved better coordination on specific Fa-rectification work. The conference was a great success.

She is now detained at the No.7 Team in Zizhong City's Nanmusi Women's Forced Labor Camp. During detention, Fu firmly believes in Dafa and Teacher and refuses to give up her belief. Her term expired on July 18, 2003; however, the personnel at the forced labor camp refused to release her, saying that they won't release her until she is "transformed." Fu weighed 120 Jin (approximately 132 pounds) before being sent to the forced labor camp, but she now only weights 70 Jin (approximately 77 pounds) and she is extremely weak.
In addition, Teams 7, 8 and 9 are places for holding Dafa practitioners. Their phone number is unavailable now.

20. [Guizhou City, Yunnan Province] Arrest and Abduction of Dafa Practitioner Ms. Song Yuanya into Guiyang City's Lannigou Brainwashing Center
Ms. Song Yuanya, 34 years old, deals with disposing of water in the Guizhou Hotel.
In May 2002, her unit forced her to write the so-called "guarantee statement**or she would be sent to a brainwashing center. So she had to give up her work and leave home to avoid persecution.
In May 2003 after a colleague learned where she lived, this colleague was deceived by their unit and brought some personnel to find her. They forcibly took her to Guiyang City's Lannigou (in Jinzhu Town) Brainwashing Center. But soon after she arrived there, Song went on a hunger strike. Her current situation is unknown.
Phone number of Song Yuanya's work unit: switchboard: 86-851-6822888, 6823888, 6824888 ext. 3116

21. [Kaiyang County, Guizhou Province] Records of Deeds of Lawless Policemen Huang Gejian and Yang Mingjiu, who are Persecuting Dafa Practitioners
Huang Kejian and Yang Mingjiu trampled the freedom of belief and human rights of Dafa practitioners. Due to their despicable persecution against firm Dafa practitioners, one practitioner has been sent to a forced labor camp; several have been illegally detained. They also tightly monitor Dafa practitioners and search practitioners' houses at will. They send firmly committed Dafa practitioners to forced labor camps, forcing their work units to fire them or suspend their salaries to force them to sign the "Three Statements***"
22. [Dalian City, Liaoning Province] Lawless Police Officers Destroy Three Dafa Materials Production Sites
On July 17, policemen from the National Security Team in Dalian City's Zhongshan Police Precinct destroyed three Dafa materials production sites in succession. Dafa practitioners Ms. Ren Yazhi, Mr. Yu Xinhua, Ms. Dong Meiyan, Mr. Sun, an engineer and a female Dafa practitioner were arrested. Machines and cash worth over one hundred thousand Yuan**** were confiscated.
Mr. Sun was detained at the Tianjin Street Police Precinct, and the other four practitioners were sent to the Yaojia Detention Center. Because of "disqualification during medical check-up," Ren Yazhi was released. But after she was released, she didn't calm down to study the Fa enough and discover hidden attachments that led to the previous losses, and she hurriedly began to reorganize a new material production site. What she did made it easier to provide clues for policemen to continuously destroy more Dafa materials production sites . We hope Dafa practitioners in Dalian City will send forth righteous thoughts to eliminate the evil in other dimensions while seriously paying attention to security issues. Let's treat security seriously!
23. [China and Thailand] "Huang Renxiong" is a Special Agent Deceiving Dafa Practitioners in Mainland China and Thailand (Photos)
Huang Renxiong, born on September 21, 1973
Name on passport: Zhang Guangfa
Passport number: G05758117
Refugee ID under application No: 17018
Home address: No.4 Jianshe Street in Qingshan District, Wuhan City, Hubei Province, China
In May 2003, Huang Renxiong came to Thailand from Mainland China and presented himself as a Dafa practitioner in order to deceive local practitioners. In both Thailand and China, some practitioners who didn't deeply understand the Fa were deceived. His behavior has severely disturbed practitioners' cultivation practice. We hope those practitioners who were deluded by him will become clear minded as soon as possible, treat the Fa as teacher, eliminate attachments to fame, personal interest and sentimentality, and become righteous practitioners once again.
