[Daqing City, Heilongjiang Province] Li Hongxin and You Lifeng, From the 64th Middle School in Daqing City, Coerce Teachers and Students to Sign Their Names

In order to actively participate in the "100,000 Teachers and Students Massive Signature Campaign" coordinated by the Education Training Center of the Education Bureau, the 64th Middle School in Daqing City, forces all teachers and student to sign their names by their "own will." Having no choice, some people signed as "Jiang Zemin" or some other fabricated name. Two Dafa practitioners from this middle school were threatened with dismissal from their jobs or "reeducation" through forced labor for refusing to sign their names.

Yet the two practitioners did not budge. The head of the school yelled at them publicly, "You Falun Gong people talk about human rights, don't you? If you are resourceful, go complain to higher authorities and sue us! We'll see who is going to take care of your business? For you Falun Gong, there simply are no human rights!" This is the best period in China's human rights history, according to Jiang Zemin.

Because of the failure to gain support among people in the school, a couple of days after this banner with signatures had been on display, it was taken down. Thereafter, the heads of the school coerced teachers and students to sign their names for a second time. This time, in order to find out who either refused to sign or signed the wrong name, they divided the banner into various sections for administrative groups and classes, and everyone had to sign his or her name in the designated section. Teachers who were not willing to sign were called in one by one, with the school heads watching by their side. In the end, there were again two teachers who refused to sign. School officials again used the same tactics, and did not stop until these two were eventually forced to sign their names.

Leaders of the 64th Middle School:

Party Secretary: Li Hongxin, Phone Numbers: 86-459-5693574 (work) 86-459-5297389 (home);

Principal: You Lifeng, Phone Numbers: 86-459-5693455 (work) 86-459-5690269 (home);

[Mainland China] Work Unit Forces Employees to Sign Their Names, and Those Who Do Not Oblige Are Dismissed from the Party

Recently a non-practitioner friend who teaches in a university told me this story. When he was taking a ride in a taxi, the taxi driver complained that his work unit was forcing employees to sign their names to oppose Dafa, with the leaders threatening those who did not sign with dismissal from the Party. The driver was really angry about this, and said, "I don't even know what Falun Gong is about. Why force me to sign? I will simply refuse. Do you want to dismiss me from the Party? By all means, go ahead. That's something I am yearning for! What's going on these days?" My friend said that after the staged self-immolation incident, Jiang Zemin and his followers continued to use this event as an excuse to collect signatures from the public through coercion. This has turned people off. Originally, people believed some parts of the TV broadcast. But with this overkill of treating the people as fools, no one believes anything reported on TV. This resembles the tactics of the Cultural Revolution, and is becoming a joke. Now as soon as a report lashing out against Falun Gong appears on TV, he immediately switches to a different channel. Think about how many misfortunes conspiring politicians have brought to China. Jiang Zemin is really lifting a rock to smash his own toes!

[Beijing] Shijingshan Detention Center Cruelly Tortures Dafa Practitioners

I was taken away in mid-February this year for unfurling banners in Tiananmen Square to validate Dafa. I was sent to Shijingshan Detention Center for not cooperating with the perverse forces and refusing to give out my name and address. Dafa practitioners here were treated extremely inhumanely. According to what my cellmates said, for refusal to tell his name and address, a fifty year old practitioner had his ear nearly ripped off, with only the earlobe connecting his ear to his head. A young female practitioner's face was burned charcoal black because she was young and nice looking.

[Guiping City, Guangxi Province] Belated Reports

Liu Yanxiao, detained for 15 days for appealing peacefully in Tiananmen in January 2001;

Gu Xiufang, detained for 30 days for appealing peacefully in Tiananmen in January 2001;

Mai Jinbo, reeducation through labor for appealing peacefully in Tiananmen in June 2000;

Chen Piliang, reeducation through labor for appealing peacefully in Tiananmen in June 2000;

Liu Jiezhen, reeducation through labor for appealing peacefully in Tiananmen in June 2000.

A total of 13 Dafa practitioners appealed peacefully at Tiananmen Square in June 2000. Eleven of them were either illegally detained or sent to labor camps.

Among them, Liu Jiezhen had been pregnant for 4 months prior to being sentenced to "reeducation" through forced labor. It was reported that when Liu was sent to a hospital for an examination, the police officer at the scene commented, "What's the big deal about being pregnant? An abortion will take care of everything."

[Tangshan City, Hebei Province] Xiaobali Transformation Center in Tangshan City Tortures Dafa Practitioners

The Xiaobali Transformation Center is actually an illegal institute for persecuting Dafa practitioners. Superficially, it publicizes the state policy--"educating, helping, and rescuing" Dafa practitioners, but in secret, it tortures them brutally. Practitioners were summoned separately to a house behind the detention center, where their hands were handcuffed to the back of a chair. They were then bound with ropes, with their feet raised up and their whole body suspended in the air. The whole weight of their bodies rested on their cuffed hands. They couldn't help but cry out with pain. In addition, they were beaten on the feet and face with wood boards until both were badly swollen. Some practitioners were bound with both of their hands and feet together. Then the guards would raise them up in the air and drop them down to the floor. They were kicked in the face, and choked by the throat with hands and strings. What's more, some guards even burned Dafa practitioners' necks with a red-hot iron hook ...

[News From China] Professor Zhou Qinglong From the PLA Armament Engineering College Was Illegally Sentenced to Two Years of Forced Labor Reeducation

In early October of 2000, professor Zhou Qinglong from the PLA Armament Engineering College was illegally arrested and detained for writing letters to the leaders of the College, clarifying the truth about Falun Dafa. In the past few months, various authorities from the College and the General Military Equipment Department couldn't change his firm belief in Dafa cultivation with either coercion or cajolery.

On the afternoon of February 22, the College held an "exposing, denouncing, and educating" conference with all of the crew and staff of the College attending. Several PLA soldiers with helmets on their heads, bullet bags on their bodies, and submachine guns in their hands, escorted the 56-year-old Prof. Zhou, with his thin and scholarly bearing, into the conference hall. This made the attendees roar with laughter. The chair of the conference announced the rules to be followed, which included "no whispering, no applause, and no slogans." But he forgot to forbid people from laughing. Therefore, the attendees chose the only way that was not forbidden to register their feelings.

The leadership of the College announced their decision to sentence Prof. Zhou Qinglong to two years of forced labor "reeducation." The two major "crimes" of Zhou Qinglong were: one, he wrote eight letters to the leaders of the College, spreading Falun Gong. Two, information from Minghui Net was found in his family computer. Also, after the "Self-Immolation Incident" at Tiananmen, he insisted that those people were absolutely not Dafa practitioners. This became his new "crime."

At present, Prof. Zhou has been sent to the 1st Detachment of the 1st Brigade of Shijiazhuang Labor Camp. Before being detained in October of last year, Prof. Zhou had been put under house arrest at the ammunition depot of the College in the Jingjing Mountainous Area. Here, he was forcibly "transformed" for several months simply because he had publicly expressed some words to safeguard Falun Dafa. His gray-haired wife suffered a shock and her health began to fail, ever since Dafa practitioners began being frequently arrested after July 20, 1999. Now, she can't look after herself, and often lies alone on the cold concrete floor. This caused the College leaders to charge publicly that Falun Gong practitioners are callous, that Prof. Zhou didn't care about his wife even though she was seriously ill. Their reasoning was, if he would only write a statement of guarantee not to practice Falun Gong any more, he could come back home and take care of her. But Professor Zhou's colleagues all feel resentful. What crime did Lao Zhou commit? Who has brutally deprived him of his freedom? Is he "callous" because he won't give up? Is he "callous" for not being willing to renounce his beliefs?

[Beijing] Late news: Pang You, Mu Chunyan, Chen Shuping, Zhang Lixin Were Illegally Sentenced to Three to Eight Years In Jail.

On December 25, 2000, the Beijing Municipal Higher People's Court illegally held a hearing of the case of Dafa practitioners Pang You, Mu chunyan, Chen Shuping, Zhang Lixin. Pang You was sentenced to eight years in jail; Mu Chunyan, seven years; Chen Shuping, seven years; Zhang Lixin, three years.

[Beijing] Spreading the Truth With Tweeters

At 7 am on February 27, in several areas of Beijing, 17 tweeters started simultaneously broadcasting the truth of the "Tiananmen Square self-immolation incident," which had been recorded by the "International Falun Dafa Radio Station." At 7 am on the mornings of March 5th and 6th, another 22 tweeters started to broadcast in those same areas again. All of the disciples who set up the tweeters returned safely.

Some of the speakers were attached to trees in residential areas; some were placed on top of buildings; some were hung on tall trees beside one-story houses; some were hung on the wall of schools; some were attached to the braces of high tension lines.

The tweeters broadcasted moving stories about Dafa disciples in the Fa rectification process under Jiang Zemin's vicious persecution, about the spreading of Dafa all over the world, and about the truth of the "Tiananmen Square self-immolation incident." The sound of the Dafa radio station awakened people from their deep sleep and gave them an opportunity to know both the truth of the "Tiananmen self-immolation incident" and the true colors of Jiang Zemin and his accomplices.

[Beijing] Dafa Banners Wave Again On Viaducts

At 4 am, early in the morning of February 27, 12 vertical hanging banners about 9 meters long appeared on the viaducts in different areas of Beijing. One was displayed on a residential building. These banners carried such words as "Falun Dafa is good," "Falun Dafa is a righteous Fa," "Buddha Fa is boundless," " Falun rotates constantly," and "Restore the Reputation of Master Li."

Facing the dawn sunlight, the banners with yellow backgrounds and red words shone with a golden light. In contrast to a scene witnessed a few days ago, in which withered grass was dyed green to impress the Olympic committee, these banners formed a piece of real, magnificent, and solemn scenery.

[Mainland China] A Child's Heart is Hard to Cheat

During the Spring Festival, a female practitioner told her little boy cultivation stories every day, including stories about Buddha Sakyamuni. Just at this time, the TV stations started playing the farce of the "Tiananmen Square self-immolation incident." Her husband, who had always disapproved of her cultivation, was embarrassed by the rumor and defamation on TV, so he scolded her unreasonably. She felt sad and was about to explain the truth to him, but at this time, her child came to her and said: "Mom, you are a practitioner. You should not behave the same as an everyday person. Didn't you tell me the story of Sakyamuni Buddha? A practitioner should not act the same as ordinary people." Then, he stepped up to his father and said, "My mom would not commit suicide because she is a practitioner. A genuine practitioner would not do that!" This practitioner was so deeply moved that she could not say a word. It is indeed true: a child's heart is hard to cheat.

[Beijing] A Party Secretary in Northern Jiaotong University Defames Falun Dafa

The Party Secretary of the Literature College in Northern Jiaotong University, Kang XX, plays an active role in the campaign of persecuting Falun Dafa. He not only opposes Falun Dafa actively and slanders Master Li, but also distorts the facts by garbling statements and disseminating rumors. He even thinks the persecution should be enhanced. He requires every party member to report his or her viewpoint on this issue and asks every student to declare his or her position as well. Some students have family members who practice Falun Dafa. They think it is outrageous for the school to do this. The school is not considering how to improve education, but instead is waging a political campaign and persecuting the common masses. A university should be a solemn place for teaching and cultivation; however, it has now become a place used by evil forces to cheat and contaminate innocent students.

[Heilongjiang Province] Experience of Dafa Practitioner Zhao Qijiang

On December 9, 2000, Dafa practitioner Zhao Qijian, from Heilongjiang province in northeastern China, was arrested while validating Dafa on Tiananmen Square and was subsequently detained at the biggest prison in Asia--Shahe Watch House in the Dongcheng District of Beijing. After being detained there for nearly 40 days, Zhao was sentenced to 1 year of forced labor "reeducation." During the detention period, Zhao went on a hunger strike for over 10 days. He was pricked by electric needles twice, put in iron shackles, and suffered from all kinds of tortures.

A plump, middle-aged person about 50 years old, who worked in the photograph room of Shahe Watch House in Beijing, repeatedly beat up Dafa practitioners that refused to cooperate with the evil forces. We hope those who know the details can help us expose this person.
