(Clearwisdom.net) At about 7 p.m. on September 23, 2007, Wang Yongkang from Changde City, Hunan Province led a group of police officers from the National Security Team, the National Protection Team, and the 610 Office to break into Falun Dafa practitioners' homes in Changde City, Hunan Province. They ransacked their homes mainly to search for and to confiscate Dafa materials, cash, and bank statements. If they found any Dafa materials, they would then take the practitioners away.

It was said that those CCP (Chinese Communist Party) police officers arrested Ms. Zhao Chunxiu, Yi Zhongqing, Yang Guiming, Ms. Su Shaofeng, Ms. Xiao Aiqin and other practitioners. About a dozen of them are currently being detained at a detention center in Changde City.

When those police officers came to practitioner Ms. Xiong Bifang's home, they knocked at her door first but she refused to open it. Then they began to use an iron rod to try to force open the door. As they were trying to smash open the door, other police officers smashed open two iron gates and locks. One hour later, they broke into her home and ransacked it. There are three locked drawers in her home and as soon as they saw them, the police officers forced open one drawer with much effort but didn't find any Dafa materials. They then found a bank deposit book and just took it for themselves. This was the fourth time that Ms. Xiong's home was ransacked by police officers. This was her fourth bank deposit book that was taken away by CCP members.

In order to resist the persecution, we suggest that the Changde City practitioners send righteous thoughts every hour at 7 p.m., 8 p.m., and 9 p.m. We need to eliminate every evil element that is persecuting practitioners here. We also need to stop the persecution and have all practitioners under detention released unconditionally!
