Every government ministry in Beijing intensively forces Dafa practitioners to receive transformation in Tuanhe labor camp. According to reliable sources, the first round of "Transformation of Falun Gong Practitioners Sponsored by Ministry of Culture" has been completed. Practitioners who are employees of Ministry of Culture have experienced severe trials. They were either seized from their homes or trapped by people from their work units and were sent to Tuanhe labor camp afterwards. The work units sent one or two persons to accompany each practitioner to the camp. Those who could not be transformed were left there for continuing transformation. Recently, the Ministry of Agriculture also carried out their first round of vicious transformation. One of the leaders said that it was the "order from the higher level of government" to send the practitioners to Tuanhe labor camp. "None of the leaders of the Minister or Bureau were able stop it."

[Beijing] Bandit policy: one gets arrested whether one practices Falun Dafa or not
One young man from another province was working in Beijing and was sent back to his hometown by the police. His family was informed to go to police station bail him out. His family was terrified and they wondered why the police took him back since he did not practice Falun Gong.
The story was like this: he was walking on a street in Beijing when he was caught by a policeman all of sudden. The policeman questioned him whether he practiced Falun Gong. He replied "No". The police asked again "Do you have ID" and he said, "Yes". He took out all his IDs including identification card, temporary resident card, and working permit. That policeman disregarded all of his identification documents and tore up one of his IDs on the spot. They tossed the torn ID to the ground and stepped on it and said viciously "You don't have all the IDs, you are arrested." He was then imprisoned in Beijing for five days and nights and taken back to his hometown afterwards. At that period of time, many people traveling or working in Beijing ran into similar situation. Most of them came from other provinces and were temporarily working in Beijing. It is said that more than 180,000 of them were likely to be driven out of Beijing.

[Russian] Falun appeared in a city of Russia
At noontime on November 15, the sky was nice and clear. There was no cloud in the blue sky. A giant colorful aureole appeared around the sun with a diameter of 100 times as large as the sun (visual distance). The lower part went under the horizon and therefore could not be seen. What was more interesting was that when we were trying to get the camera to take a picture, the aureole disappeared rapidly. Many people also saw it. They were surprised and did not know what it was. Practitioners think it will not be long before the truth will come out. The huge Falun has been waiting in the sky. In addition, on the afternoon on October 21 and 22, a similar phenomena also appeared and the size was exactly the same.
