[Wuhan City, Hubei Province] Falun Dafa Practitioner Peng Liang Illegally Detained
Falun Dafa practitioner Peng Liang from Wuhan City, Hubei Province was illegally detained in the second section of the seventh department of the Wuhan City Public Security Bureau. His relatives came a great distance to Wuhan City to see him, some from Xinjiang Autonomous Region and Hubei Province, but they were not allowed to see him. Before returning home in disappointment, they left some clothes and other daily necessities for Peng Liang.
Female practitioner Peng Qingqing was arrested in May 2001 for delivering clothes and other daily necessities to her fellow practitioners in jail. She was illegally detained for two weeks and later transferred to the Yizhou Detention Center in Hubei Province, where she suffered all kinds of torture for several months. On December 28, during a large-scale arrest, her home was ransacked, and she was taken away. Her current whereabouts are unknown. Her husband, Yan Zhigang, remained steadfast and refused to write a pledge to stop practicing Falun Gong. As a result, he was dismissed from his job. In June 2001, he sought work in other parts of the country, but policemen from Wuhan City tracked him down, and he was once again forced to leave his job. He became destitute and homeless, and his current whereabouts are unknown.
During the large-scale arrest, the policemen in Wuchang District, Wuhan City were very rampant. Many practitioners were forcibly taken away and had their homes ransacked. The damage caused was enormous.
[Jiamusi City, Heilongjiang Province] An Old Lady's Righteousness Frightens the Evil Policemen
A Falun Dafa practitioner who has been illegally detained in Jiamusi City for one year on an extended sentence finally walked out of the forced labor camp in an open and dignified manner. At first, the wicked people still asked her to write a pledge to stop cultivating. She and two other fellow practitioners, who were also on extended sentences, resolutely refused. In such circumstances, the policemen would generally ask relatives to write the pledge for them. However, they found that the old lady who came to pick her daughter up would also not write anything, so they had no choice but to let her go. That same night, several policemen from the local police station came to her home, and the old lady solemnly rebuked them, "My daughter has been groundlessly detained by you for over a year, what more do you want? Leave all of your names here, none of you can escape when the Fa rectifies the human world, and I will settle these debts with you when that time comes." The policemen left gloomily and did not show up again.
[China] Tears of Regret From an 80-year-old Man
A fellow practitioner's father is almost 80 years old. Because the practitioner's father was misled by the propaganda, he cooperated with the evil in order to try to force his son to renounce his beliefs while in labor camp. When his son held fast to the truth and remained unyielding, he almost used a knife to cut off his son's ears. After his son left the forced labor camp, he went to the camp to praise the guards who were especially vicious. After they returned home, he restricted his son's freedom. Later, after the practitioner clarified the truth to him, especially after watching the truth-clarifying VCD, he realized his mistakes. At the same time, he also learned some truths and inner meanings of Falun Dafa. He knelt down sincerely before Teacher's picture, breaking down in tears. He felt that he had let both Dafa and Teacher down. Expressing that in the future he too would cultivate Falun Dafa, he asked his son for some truth-clarifying materials and decided to step forward to join the Fa-rectification.

[Changchun, Jilin Province] Heizuizi Forced Labor Camp Brutally Tortures Practitioner Zheng Wei
After the October 1, 2001 National Day holidays, practitioner Zheng Wei, who was illegally detained in Section 2 of Brigade 1, expressed her true thoughts to the guards. She said, "Our Teacher Li Hongzhi is innocent, and Falun Dafa is good." Because of this, she was brutally tortured. The guards shocked her with electric batons and forced her to stand facing a wall from morning until 10 P.M. Then she was forced to watch videotapes slandering Dafa, and she was allowed to sleep after midnight.
The second day, starting in the morning, the guards used two electric batons to shock her. The third day, guards changed to higher voltage electric batons to torture her. Zheng Wei was shocked until she fell to the ground vomiting and lost consciousness. Even in this state, the guards didn't stop. They injected unknown drugs into her and cursed her continuously with vicious words. The following days, Zheng Wei was tortured and forced to stand facing a wall all day long. She was allowed to sleep only 4 to 5 hours a day for many days. Zheng Wei didn't give in even under such great mental and physical pressure.

[Weifang City, Shandong Province] Unlawful Thugs Abduct Dafa Practitioners
Some local government officials and policemen broke into the homes of Falun Dafa practitioners, arrested them, and sent them to a brainwashing class. When the brainwashing classes failed, they sent the practitioners to Changle Forced Labor Camp. Those practitioners who where arrested while distributing Falun Dafa literature were sent directly to labor camps and subjected to cruel torture. The authorities sent some practitioners to labor camp without notifying their families for several months. The labor camp does not allow family members to visit or to send clothing or food.

Since the evil of Changle Labor Camp was exposed, this labor camp has refused visitation by family members of Falun Dafa practitioners. Even elderly family members and children of detained practitioners are denied visitation. Those illegally detained practitioners are striving for the right to practice Falun Gong.
[China] Clarify the Truth to Government Officials
During a recent visit from some of my relatives, I took the opportunity to clarify the truth of Falun Dafa by showing them a truth clarifying VCD. They were shocked after watching the video and said, "If the self-immolation incident in Tiananmen Square can be fabricated, what other propaganda can be trusted?" They suggested that I send the truth clarifying literature to police departments, courthouses, prosecutors, and major newspapers. Their suggestions gave me many ideas of ways to clarify the truth, because we had previously done little truth clarifying activity toward the state government offices. Now with the process of Fa rectification expanding quickly in scope, we should clarify the truth to people in all walks of life at all levels. I found that some methods that can easily catch people's attention, such as VCD's and booklets with text combined with pictures, provide a meaningful approach that makes it easier for people to understand and accept. While performing Fa rectification it can be very effective to include some materials that uncover the local atrocities. This makes people realize that the evil exists around them. By clarifying the truth in this manner, the perpetrators will start to feel the pressure and resentment of public opinion mounting around them, and this may cause them to curb or cease their evil activities.
[Jiangmen City, Guangdong Province] A Falun Dafa Truth Clarifying Literature Printing Site is Damaged
On January 1, 2002, a Falun Dafa literature printing site was damaged.

[Yingkou City, Liaoning Province] Warning to the Saboteur of Falun Dafa in Yingkou College
Wang Shouyin has always been one of the hatchet men of Jiang's regime. He has deceived Falun Gong practitioners as well as ordinary people from all walks of life. His persecution extends to offices, schools, factories, the countryside, detention centers and labor camps. He has distorted the lectures and articles of Teacher in order to mislead the local residents. However, his efforts will be fruitless in the face of the Dafa practitioners' determination and unshakable righteous thoughts.
