Persecution of Dafa Practitioners in the Changbai Mountain Area of Jilin Province

January 06, 2002 |   By a Fusong County Dafa Practitioner

(Clearwisdom.net) Fusong County in Jilin Province is located in the Changbai Mountains. Practitioners in the past months here have made a lot of effort to validate the Fa, clarify the truth and help Teacher to save people. Dafa banners were flying in the trees on the mountains, truth-clarifying materials were sent to all the offices of major directors of the County Party Committee, truth-clarifying flyers were hung up on many police vehicles, Dafa posters were displayed on huge rocks and electric wire poles. Truth-clarifying newsletters, banners, posters, cassettes about the truth about Dafa and VCDs telling the truth about the self-immolation incident were sent to the county; truth-clarifying materials were distributed to towns, townships and villages. Practitioners have effectively and thoroughly clarified the truth and awakened people in all types of ways.

The County Political and Judiciary Committee, the "610 Office" [an agency specifically created by the Chinese government to persecute Falun Gong, with absolute power over each level of administration in the Party, as well as over the political and judiciary systems] and the County Police Department held an emergency meeting in the beginning of November. Since then, a hired thug followed one of our practitioners. On November 10 and 11, our truth-clarifying material preparation site was destroyed; the copier, computer, truth-clarifying materials, and copy paper were all confiscated. Five practitioners were arrested and their family members were not allowed to visit them after more than 20 days of detention. At around 7:00 p.m. on November 7, police broke into practitioner Li Xiaowen's home and took away Li Xiaowen without giving any explanation. At about 11:00 p.m. of November 11, the criminal police forcefully arrested practitioner Li Degui (female) from her home. She was not released until 3 days later. Her family tried their best to manage to pay 2,000 Yuan [The average income of an urban worker in China is about 200 Yuan per month]. Li Degui and her husband were forced to leave home to avoid further persecution.

The lawless police at the Fusong County Detention Center brutally torture Dafa practitioners. Police enforcers said, "We have to be responsible if a common criminal is abused to death, but not for a Falun Gong practitioners. All deaths of practitioners will be treated as if they had committed suicide."

These same police officers at this Fusong County Detention Center cuffed practitioner Wang Liqin, an employee of Fusong Town's Chinese Medical Hospital, to a "Dead Person's Bed" [the four limbs of the practitioner are stretched out and tied to the four corners of an icy-cold metal bed. The practitioner cannot move at all. Neither is he allowed to get up to eat, drink, or go to the bathroom. This treatment can last from several hours up to more than twelve days. This type of cruel torture severely damages a practitioner, both mentally and physically]. They covered Fusong County's Songjianghe Town practitioner Wang Yongjun's head with plastic bags so that Wang could not breathe. In the month before last Chinese New Year, they pushed more than 10 practitioners outside, including Yu Fenghua, Sun Shiling, Meng Qingfen and Ren Jun, and kept them outside in the freezing winter weather for more than 3 hours.

We urgently call all kind-hearted people in the world to pay attention to these matters, to stop the terrorism by Jiang Zemin's regime against Falun Dafa and its practitioners as soon as possible.
