Some practitioners told their own stories of cultivation in Dafa to people who came to visit the display, effectively clarifying the truth and exposing the evil. Some stuck the truth materials on top of the pictures. Some set up loudspeakers near the Square to broadcast the programs from Falun Dafa Radio Station.

[Handan City, Hebei Province] Crimes in Handan City Labor Camp

More than 100 male Dafa practitioners are currently being detained in Handan City Labor Camp. In order to fulfill the "brainwashing quotas", after May 1st, 2001, the guards became even more vicious in their torture of Dafa practitioners.

They brutally beat practitioners' sensitive areas with clubs to force them to write "guarantee letters". They put a club on bricks and forced practitioners to kneel on it. Even when practitioners could not withstand it, several thugs still cruelly beat the practitioners or grabbed them with iron pliers. They also ordered criminals to torture Falun Gong practitioners. There were about 50 people in each class. Even if only one practitioner was not transformed all the prisoners would be forced to stay awake. The camp wardens threatened,"It's nothing that we beat Falun Gong practitioners to death; we'll just say that they committed suicide." Because the labor camp kept the information tightly under wraps we were able to get only a few details.

Yang Baochun, a Dafa practitioner from Congtai District, Handan City was beaten up many times by the vile policemen simply because he refused to yield to evil and still kept on practicing the exercises in the labor camp. One day in the last year when it was snowing heavily, he lost consciousness due to the severe beatings. He was then pulled outside and left on the frozen ground for the entire night. He was seriously injured and was sent to the hospital for emergency treatment. The doctors diagnosed necrosis in his legs from frostbite; they had no choice but to amputate. He was sent back home after the amputation. For fear that he would go to appeal, his work unit sent him to the Handan City Mental Hospital. He has been detained there since then. His current situation is unknown.

After July 20, the Town Party Committee Secretary Wang Kunzhong assigned people to collect 16 Falun Gong practitioners from various areas and bring them to the Town's meeting room. They were unjustly detained 8 to 12 days. The officials unlawfully printed "guarantee letters" and forced the practitioners to sign them. They did not release these practitioners until they paid 100 Yuan RMB.

After that, whenever they thought Dafa practitioners would be out to clarify the truth the Town government would illegally assign people to go to practitioners' homes and interfere with practitioners' families' normal lives. One day before July 20, 2000, the Town government assigned people to go to Dafa practitioner Ren Youxi's home in Yizhuang Village for no apparent reason. They illegally arrested him and ransacked his home. The Town government sent Ren Youxi's wife Xu Jinfeng, also a Dafa practitioner, to Quzhou County Detention Center. She was unjustly detained for 8 months.

In December 2000, the Town government illegally detained 18 other practitioners. During this unlawful detention the assistant director of the police station Chang Huiliang beat practitioners Zhang Lianwen and Zhang Tongjiang and slandered our Teacher. The practitioners were detained 8 to 12 days. Each practitioner was forced to sign a "guarantee letter" and pay 500 Yuan RMB as a so-called deposit, before being released.

The Town Government held the so-called brainwashing classes twice for Falun Gong practitioners in February and March 2001.

The people who persecuted practitioners in Yizhuang Town included: Secretary Wang Kunzhong, Town Chief Cheng Zhigangand, the Secretary's cousin Jisan and others
