[Central-South of China] The Splendid Feat of Dafa Practitioners in a City of South-Central China
Dafa practitioners in a central-south area of China held an experience sharing conference. Afterwards, they collectively stepped forward to eliminate the evil and offer salvation to people. The activities generated a very good effect. In one night, the practitioners distributed tens of thousands of truth-clarifying materials, color pictures, and small posters. They posted hundreds of Dafa banners and painted Dafa slogans all over different places in the city. Meanwhile, they set up high volume speakers, which effectively suffocated the evil. Many citizens surrounded the high volume speakers and listened to the broadcast. They said, "Falun Gong is great. Even in this situation, they dare to step forward to clarify the truth." Someone said, "We should never believe in the propaganda on TV. It seems that Jiang Zemin's time will not last too long."
This collective activity was very successful. Before the activity, practitioners sent forth the purest righteous thoughts. The more than 500 practitioners who participated in this activity all returned home safely.
[Shuangcheng City, Heilongjiang Province] The "610" Criminal Organization Creates the "White Terror" [Putting the City Under Terror by Persecuting Falun Gong Practitioners]
On August 20, 2001, in response to the order of the higher-level authorities, Shuangcheng City Party Committee "610 Office" (an office specializing in persecuting Falun Gong practitioners; 6.10 refers to June 10, 1999, when this office was set up) formulated several policies to persecute Falun Gong practitioners. They issued a document that stated, "If any Falun Gong flyers or banners are found in the local area, the responsible person will be fined 500 Yuan. (about one month's salary in this part of China) If the materials are found again, the responsible person will be criticized in the city ." The "610 Office" authorities menaced, threatened, and economically punished all companies, enterprise institutions, social groups and local organizations.
The "document" issued by the "610 Office" also designates that people who find practitioners distributing or posting Falun Gong flyers and send them to the police office will be rewarded 3,000 to 5,000 Yuan. The reward money is extorted from practitioners own finances. The "610 Office" authorities motivate people with money and coerce them to commit crimes.
In the "document," the "610 Office" authorities labeled the practitioners who had to live in hiding to avoid the illegal persecution as "criminals at large." They tried to find excuses to persecute Falun Gong practitioners.
People are all pondering after reading the truth-clarifying literature. They are awakening. The evil's tricks will not work anymore. The "610 Office" can no longer menace, threaten or tempt the awakened people with money anymore. More and more awakened people are standing on the side of Dafa. Privately, people hate the evil. No matter what tricks the vicious forces play, and no matter how superficially rampant they are, they are indeed approaching their demise and grasping their last breath. They will meet their end with a shameful fate.
[Kaifeng City, Henan Province] The Persecution Situation of Dafa Practitioners
Male practitioner Zhang Shouyi was forcibly put into the mental hospital when he refused to slander Teacher in the brainwashing class. In July, practitioners being illegally detained in the Kaifeng City Sike Detention Center did not cooperate with the brainwashing. Female practitioners Lu Meiya (detained over a year), Liu Xiuli, Xu Jing and Li Jinye were locked up in solitary confinement for a day in the hot summer. They did not cooperate with the vicious forces and sent forth righteous thoughts. Originally they were supposed to be locked up in solitary confinement for 3 days, but they were released on the first night.
In the Sike Detention Center, female practitioners Dong Shujuan, Liu Guimei, and Li Xiaocui were shackled because they did not cooperate with the vicious forces. They went on a hunger strike for 10 days to protest. In the end, the brainwashing class was hastily closed. Several days ago, Lu Meiya, Li Jinye and Li Xiaocui were sent to somewhere unknown.
In addition, this April, male practitioner Lu Xipeng, over 50 years old, was arrested when he was found distributing truth-clarifying flyers in Zhengzhou City. He was still detained in the Sike Detention Center. Female practitioner Cui Qiaoyun was sentenced to 5 years imprisonment. Now she is illegally being detained in the Xinxiang City Jail. Her 16 years old son is left at home with no one to look after him.
[Zhaozhou County, China] Police Illegally Sentence Dafa Practitioners to Life Detention
The Zhaozhou County police brought the Dafa practitioners back from the labor camp and then directly sent them to the detention center. The practitioners asked for the reason but the police replied that it was a decision made by the county committee. The practitioners requested to talk to the leaders of the county committee but no one met with them. A few days later, they heard that they were sentenced to life detention.
[Daqing City, Heilongjiang Province] Disclosing the Viciousness of the Daqing Police System
Since July 2001, the Daqing City Police System closely followed Jiang Zemin's criminal regime and arrested practitioners:
- On the night of July 17, they took a practitioner away from home. The practitioner was detained for one month and his (or her) detention term was prolonged for another two months.
- On the night of July 19, eight practitioners were arrested in the city.
- Recently, five practitioners who had been just released from the labor camp were arrested again when they clarified the truth.
- Practitioner Zhan Yinge was from Linyuan, Daqing City and over 50 years old. In August, he was arrested when he went to his work unit to fetch something. He was sent to the Datong Custodial Center for criminal detention. After he went on a hunger strike for 15 days, he was sent to a labor camp but was rejected. However, a few days later, the lawless officials of his work unit arrested him when he went shopping and forcibly sent him to the labor camp again. Even the policemen in the labor camp felt that his work unit was too vicious.
In addition, nineteen practitioners in the Daqing Labor Camp are going on a hunger strike to protest the illegal detention. Now it is the 6th day of their hunger strike.
[Qian'an County, Jilin Province] The Lawless Officials Instigate Primary School Students to Commit Wrong Deeds
Recently, the lawless officials from Qianan County, Jilin Province sent the students from the No. 4 Primary School to watch the wire poles on every street and tear the Dafa truth-clarifying materials down. They made the innocent children commit bad deeds for them. [Background : These materials explain that retribution can be incurred for anyone defacing or taking down these materials. As a result many people have witnessed this to be true and have become scared to remove them. This is why forcing children to do it for them is such a heinous crime.]
[Qian'an County, Jilin Province] The Record of the Criminal Policemen
In March 2000, more than 50 practitioners went to Beijing to appeal for Dafa. The policemen madly arrested people everywhere. The whole Qian'an County was disturbed and lost its peacefulness. The police set up checkpoints to block vehicles on every road. The villains forced people in every vehicle to curse Dafa and Teacher. Otherwise, they would be arrested.
Bai Xiangchen, the local policeman in Qian'an County, is very active in persecuting Falun Gong. In June 2001, when practitioners Hua Guiwen and Liu Jinxia distributed Dafa truth-clarifying materials, Bai Xiangchen found them and sent them to the custodial center. Later on, Bai shamelessly claimed that he made a contribution [to persecuting Falun Gong].
Zhao Yanhai is the head of the Administrative Protection Section. This person is insidious and tricky. After July 22, 1999, he went around to investigate Falun Gong, searching for so-called evidence. He made up lies and slandered Dafa, illegally fined Dafa practitioners and confiscated Dafa books. He often beat and cursed practitioners and Dafa. He kicked female practitioners in their lower abdomens. In March 2000, Qian'an County authorities held brainwashing classes. During the classes, Zhao Yanhai tore Teacher's picture from Zhuan Falun and threw it to the ground. He forced practitioners to step on the picture. He is really vicious.
Wang Hui is the head of Qian'an County Custodial Center. He often beat and cursed the people being detained. At the same time, he brutally persecuted practitioners. He often handcuffed practitioners to the heating pipe for more than 20 hours. He kicked practitioners in the lower part of their bodies and abused female practitioners with dirty words. He also threatened that he would strip female practitioners and throw them into the male jail cells.
Yuan Ye is a policeman. He brutally tortured practitioners many times. Once he saw a practitioner practicing the sitting meditation. He pulled this practitioner from the bed, and threw her to the ground. He repeatedly pulled her up about one foot off the ground by yanking her hair, and threw her to the ground.
[Qian'an County, Jilin Province] The Driver Knows the Truth
As National Day was approaching, the evil forces in Qian'an County of Jilin Province intensified the persecution against Falun Gong. They set up checkpoints at main intersections, to question and search all vehicles passing by. Once, a wicked policeman stopped a bus and asked the driver, "Is there anybody going to Beijing to appeal?" The driver indignantly commented, "Power politics!" With Dafa spreading far and wide, people have gradually come to know about the truth. We believe there will be a day when the compassion and benevolence Master has endowed practitioners with will make all kind-hearted people see the truth, and they will thus be saved by Dafa.
[China] Middle School Students Nobly and Justly Answer Exam Questions
Recently, a county middle school administered a monthly exam. A question about Falun Gong was worth six points.
Student A's father is a policeman who participated in practitioners' arrests. When seeing the question, the student remembered that his father felt very bad, because every time he came back from arresting Falun Gong he would always lie down on the bed and say "Jiang Zemin is not doing something right; he is torturing us!" The student wrote down on his test paper, "I saw 'Falun Dafa is Good' written on a wall." He expressed his idea in a roundabout way. The teacher gave him a full credit.
Student B is a practitioner and always scores the best in the class. When seeing the question, he (or she) immediately realized that he shouldn't cooperate with the evil. He simply did not write a single word, losing six points for so doing and his standing dropped to second place in the class. Back home he told his parents, "I don't want to get the No.1 position. I would rather fail the college entrance exam than answer this kind of question, let alone for this exam."
Student C had promoted Dafa before. When he or (she) saw the question, he felt very indignant and thought "Don't poison young people!" He answered "Beneficial and harmless" for the first question and "Everybody, come and learn Falun Gong!" The teacher was surprised but did not punish him [by lowering his grade] for doing so.
[Qianguo County, Jilin Province] Personnel from the Qianguo County Police Department Kidnap Practitioner
On August 22, 2001, policemen from Qianguo County Police Department, together with a large number of policemen from the Wangfu Town Police Station suddenly rushed into female practitioner Yu Zaihua's home, forcibly kidnapping her and ransacking her home. When they found some Dafa books and materials, they said, "This is your criminal record. We don't need any warrant to arrest you; we can do whatever we want." Now she is held at a detention center, and her family members are not allowed to visit her. Circumstances about her personal safety are unknown.
[Shijiazhuang City, Hebei Province] Practitioners from No.54 Institute of Shijiazhuang City's Electronics Department are Taken Away by Police
On September 30, 2001, policemen abducted four practitioners from their homes. All of them, including Han Jianguo, are from No.54 Institute of the Electronics Department in Shijiazhuang City.
[Harbin City, Heilongjiang Province] Harbin City Police Spread Rumors to Frame Dafa; Let's Collectively Eliminate the Evil
By the end of September, people from Harbin City's Daoli police branch spread false rumors that the city was missing some potassium cyanide, and that Falun Gong planned "to do something" with it during the Festival. A primary school teacher in Xiangfang District publicly asked his (or her) students not to buy pastry on the street [for fear that Falun Gong would put potassium cyanide in the pastry to poison them]. This is an example of how Falun Gong is framed in China.
