2. [Changchun City, Jilin Province] Nearly 200 Loudspeakers Broadcast at the Same Time Before "Falun Dafa Day in Changchun"
Not long ago, some practitioners were arrested for hanging up loudspeakers broadcasting the stories of Falun Dafa. The newspaper Changchun New Culture defended the persecution and boasted of a "victory." However, just before Falun Dafa Day in Changchun, nearly 200 loudspeakers began broadcasting at almost the same time on the evening of December 21, 2001 in Changchun. According to reports from practitioners, some loudspeakers remained on for 55 minutes, some 30 minutes. Falun Dafa Radio was thus heard in the residential areas, on the streets, and outside shopping centers.
Many people learned the truth of Falun Dafa and showed great interest. In fact, the propaganda in Changchun New Culture was partly responsible for the people's curiosity and attention.
3. [Jilin Province] Lotus Flowers Greet the New Spring
The new year has come, and everything has been renewed. To celebrate Falun Dafa Day in Changchun, some practitioners in Jilin Province made lotus flowers with words such as "Falun Dafa is good" and "Falun Dafa is the righteous way" and placed them along the streets. The pure and sacred lotus flowers, along with the red words, green leaves, yellow stamen, and pink petals glittered with brilliance and brought beauty, benevolence, and harmony to the people.
4. [Mainland China] Clarifying the Truth with Small Red Flags
There is a shortage of truth-clarifying literature to introduce Falun Dafa in rural areas. So the practitioners placed small red flags with the words of Falun Dafa along the roads, in doorways, and in the markets. The farmers said, "The Falun Gong people are so capable."
They wrote short phrases about the truth of Falun Dafa on one side of the flag and adhered the truth-clarifying literature to the other side. They stuck the flags in the haystacks, on the roadsides, and in the grocery stands. Children hold the flags in their hands and read the words out loud. Farmers saw the flags at the market and felt that they added a festive atmosphere. The owner of a grocery stand deliberately placed a flag on his goods, saying it brings good fortune. The red flags were even on the cars driving to town. The police were furious upon seeing these flags.
5. [Daqing City, Heilongjiang Province] Two Practitioners Arrested
At around 2 p.m. on December 28, 2001, upon receiving a report, the police in Daqing City, Heilongjiang Province went to practitioner Wang's home and arrested her. Another practitioner Cao who was there was also arrested. Wang's home was then ransacked. The Falun Dafa books, the truth-clarifying literature, and banners were all confiscated. In the police station, though Wang and Cao were handcuffed to the "tiger bench" [an instrument of torture, see http://www.clearwisdom.net/emh/articles/2001/11/24/16156.html], they kept on clarifying the truth of Falun Dafa to the police. No matter how brutally the police treated them, they refused to betray other practitioners or to write repentance letters. On the morning of December 30, they were transferred to Daqing Custodial Center. Wang did not pass the physical examination and was rejected by the custodial center. So she returned home on that morning and came back into the current of the Fa-rectification. Cao is still being detained.

9. [Ningxia Autonomous Region] The Word "Denouncement" Couldn't be Posted
One day in April of 2001, the Baitugangzi Forced Labor Camp in Ningxia Autonomous Region held a conference denouncing and smearing Falun Dafa in its courtyard. Soon after the conference began, the word "Denouncement" fell from the banner.
When a similar conference was held in mid-June, a cloud suddenly blotted out the sun. Then came a gust out of the calm sky, heading towards the courtyard. The banner rustled in the wind, and the word "Denouncement" was ripped off. Two policemen hurried to postit again but it didn't stay. Seeing the word repeatedly fall off was a strong hint for the people present.

11. [Panjin City, Liaoning Province] Panjin City Forced Labor Camp Illegally Prolongs the Terms of Detained Dafa Practitioners
Panjin City Forced Labor Camp in Liaoning Province extends the terms of Dafa practitioners when their sentences are completed by fabricating charges against them. For instance, practitioner Xiao Zuojun's term was extended by fifteen months without any reason or legal process.
Mr. Zhang, from the supervisory liaison office to the prosecutor's office in the labor camp, did not do anything about the labor camp's illegal practices. When the police beat practitioners, he did not try to stop this illegal activity. His responsibility is to supervise the law enforcement in the labor camp, but all he does is encourage law-breaking actions and inhuman torture!
The practitioners in Panjin City call for people from all walks of life around the world to condemn the vicious actions in Panjin City Forced Labor Camp under Jiang Zemin's regime. Some of the practitioners imprisoned in this labor camp include Ye Ximing, Li Shangang, Jiang Xingwang, Zhen Gongcheng, Xiao Zuojun, Liu Zhongyi, Liu Yang, Li Shujuan (female), Lv Shuxuan (female), and others.

12. [Panjin City, Liaoning Province] Pan Yongshu is Illegally Arrested in Tiananmen Square
Practitioner Pan Yongshu, 33 years old, is a taxi driver well known for his kindness. He obtained Dafa in December 1997.

Although Pan had been previously imprisoned in Panjin City Forced Labor Camp for one year for validating the Fa, on October 7, 2001, he went to Beijing to safeguard the Fa again. On October 8, he held a banner reading "Truthfulness Compassion Forbearance" in Tiananmen Square and shouted loudly his feelings towards Dafa. Police arrested him on site and held him in the Xuanwu District Detention Center in Beijing. During this detention, his father and wife traveled a long way to visit him; but they were refused entry to the detention center. He was illegally sentenced to re-education through forced labor.

15. [Harbin, Heilongjiang Province] The "610 Office" is Frantically Arresting Dafa Practitioners
Since December 20, 2001, the "610 Office" in Harbin, Heilongjiang Province, has gathered together a lot of policemen, assisted by lowlifes from the streets, to arrest Dafa practitioners over the whole city. They identify practitioners by means of ambushes, stalking, surveillance, wiretapping, and so on. Whenever they suspect someone is a core practitioner, they break into his home to take him away without proper legal procedures and seize his belongings. Recently, many practitioners have been arrested, and nobody knows their whereabouts.
According to some information disclosed from the police, the "610 Office" in Harbin has issued an order to arrest 500 practitioners around the 2002 New Year holiday. To satisfy this quota, police are arresting, interrogating, torturing, sentencing, and locking up practitioners. Furthermore, they are doing all of these things secretly. To free space for the newly arrested practitioners, police are furtively transferring the previously detained practitioners to labor camps without any legal procedures. Therefore, their families don't know their whereabouts or even if they are still alive. The "610" officers and police say, "It can never be overdone, no matter how severely you persecute Falun Gong practitioners. We can let those arsonists and murders go, but not practitioners." The "610" officers of Harbin are truly terrorizing the whole city now.
