Facts of the Persecution

1. Urgent Call to Rescue Falun Dafa Practitioner Ms. Wang Xia

Ms. Wang Xia is in her thirties and the story of her release from prison after a two year hunger strike was reported on Clearwisdom.net. Her physical condition had been improving very slowly, since she was released, although she suffered from insomnia, and the doctors diagnosed that she had experienced a nervous breakdown. On December 23, 2004, police from Linhe City, Inner Mongolia Autonomous District suddenly came to her house and took her to the District Women's Prison in Huhhot. It is our hope that all kind people in the world will extend their helping hands to rescue Falun Dafa practitioner Wang Xia from further persecution.


2. Practitioner Ms Li Hong has been Held for More Than Two Years; Her Husband Had to Leave Home More Than Two Years Ago and Their Son was Almost Abducted

Ms. Li Hong is a thirty-eight year old Falun Dafa practitioner. She went to Beijing with her husband in October 2000, and both were arrested. Her husband was sentenced to two years of forced labor. Later, her entire family, regardless of age, was threatened. After eight months in hiding, Li Hong was arrested in May 2002. Over the past two and a half years, she has been held in the Jijiafang Brainwashing Class at the Shalingzi and Qiaodong District Brainwashing Center located on Gaohou Street, and tortured by all sorts of means. Her husband was also forced to leave home to avoid being arrested for two years after being released from a labor camp. In order to arrest him, lawless officials attempted to abduct his son as hostage one month ago. Luckily, his classmate's father appeared just in time, and the attempt failed.


3. Crimes Committed at the Liaocheng Brainwashing Class in Shandong Province

The Dongchangfu District Brainwashing Center is located across the street from the Dongchangfu District Court on Xihuan Street, Liaocheng City, Shandong Province. All abducted Falun Dafa practitioners and people who came to appeal in Liaocheng City are held there. There are more than ten wards in the center. Posters made by the 610 Office slandering Falun Dafa are posted all over the hallway. Falun Dafa practitioners are all isolated from one another. The 610 Office director, Li Yugong (male), is personally in charge of the brainwashing. He ordered guards to step on Falun Dafa practitioners' hands and ankles, while two doctors from the Xihu Hospital in Liaocheng City force-fed practitioners on a hunger strike. Li ordered the doctors to pull the tube back and forth to increase the suffering. Most practitioners could not move, even after ten minutes of force-feeding, because their hands and feet were purple-black and numb.


4. Local Lawless Officials Step Up Persecution of Falun Dafa Practitioners after Luo Gan and Zhou Yongkan Visit Henan Province

In October 2004, the Central Political and Judiciary Committee Secretary Luo Gan and the Minister of Public Security came to Henan Province, and personally planned new waves of persecution against Falun Dafa practitioners. They recklessly arrested Falun Dafa practitioners, taking them to brainwashing classes. They unlawfully extended terms of practitioners who had been released from labor camps or prisons by immediately arresting them upon their release and transferring them to brainwashing classes. The new governor, Xu Guangchun, said in his TV remarks, that the city will install 100,000 mini-video cameras on the streets of Zhengzhou City to monitor and arrest Falun Dafa practitioners. Several Falun Dafa practitioners have been abducted to the Wanqingshanzhuang Brainwashing Class.
