[China] The new director of Disciplinary Committee: Why are there so many people practicing Falun Gong? Because Falun Gong is good!

The disciplinary Committee of one provincial office held an "Anti-corruption and promoting Honesty" meeting. The new director of Disciplinary Committee gave a speech, saying, "... Why are there so many people practicing Falun Gong? People still practice Falun Gong even when they are being treated so poorly. Because Falun Gong is good! After practicing Falun Gong, they really got rid of their illnesses and saved the tremendous cost of medical expenses for the government. Now, the corruption is so severe, the workers who are out of jobs are only paid 100 Yuan RMB (average monthly salary for an urban worker is 500 Yuan) per month, how can they have money to buy medicine, how can they not practice Falun Gong?"

[China] Policeman Tell the Truth: Why don't you learn from the Falun Gong Practitioners?

The police arrested a group of people who were gambling, fighting and making trouble. One of the policemen pointed to them and said, " Why don't you learn from the Falun Gong practitioners? If you learned Falun Gong, you will not be making trouble, the social order will be better, and we can then relax."

[China] Arrested without Cause, a Person with a Clear Mind has no Resentment and Hatred

Some police learned that three Falun Dafa practitioners from a work unit would go to Beijing to appeal and hurriedly called to notify their work unit to go to the train station to stop them. The person who answered the phone then tried to call the security department, but the call reached the insurance company and therefore delayed the time to stop them. After these three practitioners were brought back from Beijing, the work unit traced the responsibility and deducted from the person who answered the phone call 8, 000-Yuan RMB {approximately 16-month salary of an average urban worker}. However, this person was very happy, he said, "I have never dialed a wrong number in my life; this is really miraculous. Let them go to Beijing to fulfill their wishes so I can accumulate merit and virtue. It would be worth it to lose another 8,000 Yuan."

[Shanghai] Doctor Wu Yuxin, from the Computer Science Department of Shanghai Jiao Tong University, is Detained for Practicing Falun Gong

Falun Dafa practitioner Wu Yuxin graduated from the Computer Science Department of Shanghai Jiao Tong University. He was in the graduating class of 1999. Because he persisted in practicing Falun Dafa, he was taken away by the police in mid September and then disappeared. We ask Wu Yuxin's friends in China and overseas to provide help for his early release.

[Beijing] Many Falun Dafa Practitioners in Beijing are Being Arrested

Before October 1, Jiang Zemin's regime stepped up the persecution of Falun Gong practitioners and arrested Falun Gong practitioners on a large scale. On September 23rd, 13 Dafa practitioners who had been forced into homelessness were illegally arrested by police while exchanging experiences. They are Wang Hui, Lu Fang, Zhao Haiying, Li Heting and others. Right now, they are still being illegally detained and suffering tortures of different degrees, but they still resolutely safeguard Falun Dafa.

[Beijing] Falun Dafa Practitioner Yuan Lingwa is Illegally Arrested for the Tenth Time

Beijing Falun Dafa practitioner Yuan Lingwa was arrested while printing Falun Gong flyers and materials in late September of this year. Others who were taken away along with her were junior He couple, junior Li couple and their child who is less than two years old. This was the tenth time for Yuan Lingwa . Every time, she refused to cooperate with the evil and went on a hunger strike without food and water. She used her life to safeguard Dafa, to the frustration of the old forces.

Before they were arrested, they had gone to a practitioner's home at Dongzhimen and had been followed by the plain-clothes police on their way back.

[Nongan County, Jilin Province] Dafa Disciples Are Arrested

On September 22nd, Falun Dafa disciples Yang Shumei and Liu Jiqin, from Yangshulin Village of Nongan County, were arrested for no reason while walking along a road. In the evening of that day, Yang Shumei was brutally beaten up for not cooperating with the evil police. The following day, other fellow practitioners went to see her and found that, handcuffed and fettered, she lay on the ground with foamy saliva coming out of her mouth. She looked severely beaten up. Since the police couldn't get any information from the two practitioners, they sent them to a detention center. During the detention, both practitioners, asking to be released, went on a hunger strike. Having failed to make the two Dafa disciples submit, the police pretended to send them to a doctor in a hospital, but instead drove them directly towards Heizuizi Labor Camp. On the way, Yang Shumei escaped with firm righteous thoughts. Her whereabouts are not known. Liu Jiqin was illegally sentenced to forced labor.

On the same day that Yang Shumei was arrested, her husband Wang Qixue, also a Falun Dafa practitioner, received a phone call from the director of the Village Public Security Committee. During the call, Wang Qixue was told that the police had sent Yang Shumei to a hospital and that he should bring her some money. After Wang Qixue arrived at the town, he learned that his wife had been sent to Heizuizi Labor Camp in Changchun. On his way back home, Zhang Yaming, the director of the village police substation, together with other police, kidnapped Wang Qixue and took him to the county detention center. No explanations have been made regarding his arrest. It turned out that they made the phone call for the purpose of kidnapping him.

[Jiutai City, Jilin Province] Unlawful Police Kidnap Dafa Disciples; Put Them Into Brainwashing Class

[Xiangtan City, Hunan Province] The Public Security Organizations Invest Huge Sums of Money to Install Network Filtering Software, Depriving Peoples' Right to Know the Truth

According to a report in a local newspaper, Xiangtan public security organizations invested over 100,000 yuan (equal to 20 workers' average annual income-- translator) to install network-filtering software in September. The primary purpose of this project is to prevent people from browsing the Internet for information related to Falun Gong. Previously, a university student in Xiangtan City was harassed by the police simply for reading email with Falun Gong information. Presently, people are not allowed to use the Internet until they have registered their personal information so that the police can monitor them.

[Wenjiang County, Sichuan Province] Dafa Disciple Yu Biqing is Kidnapped

Yu Biqing, female, over 40 years old, comes from Yongquan Village of Wenjiang County. She had to leave her home because she was persecuted for firmly cultivating in Falun Dafa. At 11:00 am on September 25th of 2001, Yu Biqing and Sister Zhou (53 years old) were arrested while clarifying the truth of Falun Dafa at Liujie Market in Dujiangyan City. They were beaten black and blue and bruised all over while in custody at the local police substation. That afternoon, three policemen drove them to the Municipal Public Security Bureau. The police in the Bureau didn't take them because of their severe wounds. Therefore, the three policemen had to take them back to the local police substation. On the way, the two disciples sent forth the righteous thoughts. Sister Zhou removed the handcuffs, jumped out of the police car and escaped. It is not known whether Yu Biqing is still alive or not.

[Chengdu City, Sichuan Province] Several Falun Dafa Practitioners Are Kidnapped

Five female Dafa practitioners, Wang Meilan and Fan Xiaohong, both teachers from No. 3 High School in Chengdu City, 77-year-old Li Neng, an employee of the provincial Cultural Association, and two other practitioners were all arrested while clarifying the truth regarding Falun Dafa in Shuanglin County, by the end of September this year.

She was arrested for clarifying the truth about Falun Dafa on September 30th, and was detained in Longquanyi District Detention Center.

[Chendu City, Sichuan Province] Falun Dafa Practitioner Li Binnan is Illegally Sentenced to Forced Labor Again

Falun Dafa practitioner Li Binnan, female, was illegally sentenced to one and a half years of forced labor (in her case, unlike most other people who were sentenced to forced labor and sent to a labor camp, she was allowed to live in the society to serve her term), for going to appeal in Beijing and clarifying the truth to the local newspaper "Commercial Morning". On May 21st of 2001, Li Binnan, her daughter Ren Jing and five other practitioners were arrested while distributing truth clarifying Dafa materials. On June 8th, she was illegally detained and put in jail. Recently, she has been illegally sentenced to another year of forced labor, to be carried out in society in the same fashion as her previous forced labor term. Her daughter is still illegally detained in jail.

[Wei County, Hebei Province] Lawless Policemen Kidnap Practitioners in Public

When Minghui exposed the crimes of the evil people from Wei County who suppressed Falun Gong practitioners, the evil beings escalated their suppression by using lots of manpower, money, and materials to set up brainwashing classes in various detention centers. The evil beings then began arresting the practitioners and sending them to brainwashing classes as of August 20th, 2001. Reliable sources have said that, according to policy, the classes will be held every two weeks until December. If a practitioner is not brainwashed after two classes, he or she will be sent away for forced labor.

Around 9 AM on August 7th, 2001, practitioner Qi Ai, a cadre from the Wei County Earthquake Office, was arrested after she got off her night shift. The policeman Liang Ligang failed to show any legal documentation or evidence when he took Qi Ai away by force. She was sent to the Tangshan City Hehuagou Forced Labor Camp.

Practitioner Yuan Jinfeng (female, 30 years old) went to Beijing to appeal for the right to practice Falun Gong in September 2000. As a result, she was arrested and escorted back to the Wei County Police Department where she was detained for half a year. Later on, she was released after she went on a hunger strike to protest her term of detention. On August 20th, 2001, a group of evil people ordered by the authority went to her house and carried her away by force while cursing and beating her at the same time; they even didn't allow her to put on shoes. Yuan Jinfeng was sent to a brainwashing class along with practitioners from other towns and counties (names unknown to us).

Practitioner Han Yinghuan, (female, about 36 years old), was a resident of Yangjuan Town. Around noon on August 20th, while she was distributing truth-clarifying materials in Bainanbao Village, Nanliuzhuang Township, Han was arrested and sent to the Nanliuzhuang Police Department. Apparently, one villager informed the police about her activities. The police brutally beat her in an attempt to trace the source of the materials. She is now detained in the Wei County Detention Center with criminal charges.

[Wei County, Hebei Province] Wei County 610 Office and Police Injure Elderly Neighbor When Arresting Practitioner

On August 21st, 2001, the Wei County "610" Office and the County Police Department started their anti-Falun Gong brainwashing classes. The lawless policemen there worked with the village and town governments as well as other work units to arrest practitioners. Currently, more than ten practitioners have been detained in the brainwashing class held in the old police building.

Li Jingang, Director of the Wei County Hospital, ordered three of his hospital personnel to arrest Doctor Han Xiurong on the night of August 20th. As Doctor Han was getting ready to go to sleep, Liu Youhong, Zhang Bing, and Zhao Shufeng, knocked on his door and broke the lock and windows. After they broke in, they began beating Han Xiurong while dragging her out of the house. An elderly neighbor heard the noise and came out to stop the illegal action; however, the criminal, Zhang Bing, beat the old lady without saying a word. The old lady's chest was severely injured.

The kidnapped practitioners have protested their suppression by starting to hunger strike. We call on all people in all levels of society to support the practitioners and call for an end to the persecution of The Great Law and its practitioners. We urgently appeal that all walks of life in the society support the practitioners and call for an end to the persecution of Falun Dafa and its practitioners.

[Zhangjiakou City, Hebei Province] Laoyazhuang Town Government Official and Thug Zhang Jianjun's Crimes

Zhang Jianjun, the newly appointed Vice General Secretary of Laoyazhuang Town, Zhangjiakou City, Hebei Province, utilized his power to cruelly suppress the practitioners so as to gain political capital for his promotion. His evil deeds have been denounced by practitioners and from people in many levels of society.

In October 2000, some practitioners went to Beijing to appeal and to speak out the truth of Falun Gong to the public and government. As a result, they were arrested and escorted back to Zhangjiakou city. Zhang Jianjun wrote some sentences slandering Dafa and the Teacher on a blackboard and ordered the practitioners to read the sentences in turn. When the practitioners refused, Zhang began to beat all of them, no matter how old they were. He slapped their faces until he was tired. Afterwards, he used a pair of gloves with metal zippers to slap them. Seeing that the practitioners still didn't comply, he kicked them with his boots.

Later on, he forced the practitioners to do hard and dirty work for free and he pressured the practitioners everyday to write repentance letters. He also threatened the practitioners with evil methods such as confiscating their relatives' property. He said, "I don't believe I can't fix you. I'll beat you now, but you're not allow to tell anyone." He often came to harass the practitioners at night and search for new articles from Minghui.
