?p> [Zhengzhou City, Henan Province] Illegal Detention of Dafa Practitioner Ms. Zhang Li at the Shibalihe Forced Labor Camp
Before the 2001 Spring Festival, 40-year-old Dafa Practitioner Ms. Zhang Li who worked in the Financial Section of the No.1 Affiliated Hospital of Zhengzhou City's Medical College left home to avoid being sent to a brainwashing class held by the 27th District' Wulipu Agent. On May 15, 2002, when Zhang Li went out, Xu Zhenlu, the party director in her hospital in charge of persecuting Falun Gong, recognized her. Xu Zhenlu informed the unit's Security Section and then they sent Zhang Li to a local police precinct. After being detained at a detention center for four months, she was transferred to Zhengzhou City's Shibalihe Female Forced Labor Camp for further persecution due to her determination to continue with the practice of Falun Dafa.
[Guangzhou City, Guangdong Province] Personnel from the "610 Office" and Tianhe District's Tangxia Police Precinct Illegally Arrest Dafa Practitioners Li Naimei and Lin Yubin
On September 24, 2002, personnel from Guangzhou City's "610 Office" [an agency specifically created to persecute Falun Gong, with absolute power over each level of administration in the Party and all other political and judiciary systems] went to Dafa practitioner Ms. Li Naimei's son's home located in the Panyu District and forcibly took Li Naimei to a brainwashing class.
On the afternoon of September 25, 2002, over ten lawless policemen from Tianhe District's Tangxia Police Precinct in Guangzhou City went to Dafa Practitioner Lin Yubin's work unit and forcibly took Lin Yubin to a brainwashing class.
[Chengdu City, Sichuan Province] Dafa Practitioner Liu Xueming and His Wife Arrested Along with a Couple of Their Relatives
Mr. Liu Xueming and his wife are Dafa practitioners in Xinjin County, Chengdu City. In December 2000, they were illegally detained at a forced labor camp for one year because they went to Beijing to validate Dafa. When they were detained at the forced labor camp, neither the excruciating tortures nor the collaborator's lies [former Falun Gong practitioners who have gone astray due to brainwashing and torture] could make them abandon their righteous thoughts and belief in Dafa. After the completion of their one year detention terms in January 2002, they went back home and immediately immersed themselves again in the mighty current of Fa-rectification.
Liu Xueming hid some Dafa books at one of his relative's home right after July 20, 1999. On September 13, 2002, Xinjin County's police ransacked his relative's house because someone had reported him. In the minds of policemen who are under the Jiang regime's control, keeping Dafa books is "illegal" and "criminal," so his relatives (a couple) were held at a detention center just because they had Dafa books at home. They are not released as of now.
Afterwards, in collusion with people from the local government, lawless policemen of Xinjin County's Police Department went to Liu Xueming's home, and broke into and ransacked his house. They forcibly took Liu Xueming and his wife away. Their daughter (a Dafa practitioner) escaped "with wisdom," but she has to live in exile. Now Liu Xueming and his wife and the relatives are detained at Xinjing County's Detention Center.
[Shunde City, Guangdong Province] Arrest of Dafa Practitioner Luo Zizhao
Mr. Luo Zizhao, a Dafa practitioner from Shunde City, Guangdong Province, obtained Dafa in early 1999. He went to Tiananmen Square to validate Dafa at the end of 2000. Afterwards, Shunde City's Police Department personnel illegally detained him for one month. Later on, he had to live in exile to avoid the persecution. At about 5:30 p.m. on September 18, 2002, when he was on duty at his unit in Liaoyang City, Liaoning Province, policemen from Shunde City captured and took him to be imprisoned.
[Huludao City, Liaoning Province] Arrest of Dafa Practitioners Zhang Huizhi and Li Shujun in Xingcheng City
At about 10:00 p.m. on September 28, 2002, lawless policemen arrested Dafa practitioners Ms. Wang Huizhi, over 40 years old, and Mr. Li Shujun, 45 years old, at their homes in Xingcheng City [a county level city] of Huludao City.
[Jinzhou City, Liaoning Province] Arrest of Practitioner Li Hongcheng

[Jinzhou City, Liaoning Province] A Dafa Materials Production Site Destroyed
On September 15, 2002, a Dafa materials site was destroyed in Jinzhou City, Liaoning Province. Two practitioners were arrested and all equipment was confiscated. It was suspected that some practitioner had been followed.
[Huludao City, Liaoning Province] Lawless Officials Hold Brainwashing Classes
Since May of 2002, Huludao City's Political and Judiciary Committee and people from the "610 Office" continually hold brainwashing classes. Several brainwashing classes were also held in the Lianshan District, Nanpiao District, Suizhong County and in Xingcheng City. About 20 practitioners were arrested in Xingcheng City for each brainwashing session. So far they have held six sessions. In September 2002, the chief of Beijing City's "610 Office" came to Xingcheng City for inspection, to enforce the brainwashing of practitioners. The authorities also held a Dafa-slandering photo exhibit and forced students to watch. We hope practitioners who read this news send forth righteous thoughts to eliminate the evils manipulating vicious people.
[Panjin City, Liaoning Province] Criminal Record of Zhang Shoujiang
Zhang Shoujiang, male, 54 years old, is a deputy director of Panjin City's Forced Labor Camp in Liaoning Province. Aside from being in charge of routine work in the forced labor camp, he also supervises the persecution of Falun Gong practitioners. The central government at one time presented him with a "Distinguished Individual" award for his work in persecuting Falun Gong practitioners. Under his leadership, policemen in Panjin City's Forced Labor Camp inhumanly persecute Falun Gong practitioners.
[Huanggang City, Hubei Province] Congratulations on the Founding of the Japan Falun Dafa Association
We hope practitioners in Japan will do their best at this critical time of the Fa-rectification process!
[Kaifeng City, Henan Province] Police Harass Dafa Practitioners' Family Members
A female Dafa practitioner from Kaifeng City went to Beijing twice to appeal for Falun Dafa and was twice detained. On the evening of September 26, two policemen from Longting District's Wuchaomen Police Station of Kaifeng City illegally broke into her home, attempting to take her away, and said, "We will take you away, even if we have to carry you." The practitioner skillfully escaped and is now living in exile to avoid further persecution.
The director of the police station scolded the two policemen for this. They then took turns to keep an around-the-clock surveillance on the practitioner's husband, a non-practitioner. They even treat the practitioner's home as their "office" and "free hotel." They have slept there, illegally searched the rooms and even eaten the food in the refrigerator. They then had diarrhea. Once, when the practitioner's husband went to see a movie, the policemen couldn't spot him and became extremely nervous. A bunch of policemen from the Wuchaomen Police Station came over. In broad daylight, they climbed into the house using a ladder, and turned the house upside down. The personnel at the police station racked their brains trying to catch the practitioner. They went to the practitioner's daughter's home in Zhoukou City, Henan Province. They also went to the practitioner's mother's home in Hebei Province and threatened the practitioner's elderly mother to tell them of her daughter's whereabouts. The elderly mother was very indignant and fell ill afterwards. The police then went to the practitioner's younger brother's home, questioned him about the practitioner's whereabouts, and forced him to report to the police station every day and threatened him with arrest if he would not comply. The police checked with all the relatives and friends of the practitioner to find out her whereabouts.
[Southwestern China] Dafa Practitioners Hold a Two-Day Experience-Sharing Conference During the Holiday
On October 5 and 6, 2002, disregarding the vicious environment and completely negating the old forces' arrangement, twelve Dafa practitioners from a city in southwestern China held an experience-sharing conference at a Dafa practitioner's home. Through exchanging ideas, practitioners all made great improvements. Some practitioners who hadn't been very diligent quickly recognized their attachments. They immediately took action and solved problems. Through this experience sharing, everybody realized the mighty power of righteous thoughts and the great importance of reading the Fa more. At the same time, they realized the need for sharing experience among fellow practitioners.
[Baiyin City, Gansu Province] Secret Arrest of Dafa Practitioner Chang Jubin and Zhang Guangli
Police in Lanzhou City successively arrested Dafa practitioner Ms. Chang Jubin and Mr. Zhang Guangli at the beginning and middle of September. They were then secretly transferred to Baiyin City. Their family members have so far not been informed. Following are details:
Dafa practitioner Chang Jubin was an official at Baiyin City's Inspection Bureau. After July 20, 1999, he was constantly under house arrest and detention. His work unit suspended his salary. In 2001, he was sentenced to one year of forced labor. After he was released from the labor camp, his work unit didn't renew his job, leaving him without a source of income. His wife is a janitor and has a very low income. They have a child in middle school. The whole family is in a very difficult situation. The lawless personnel constantly go to their home to harass and persecute them at will. They detained the practitioner twice, in September 2001 and also in June 2002, for no reason. The practitioner was forced to live in exile in order to avoid further persecution.
Dafa practitioner Zhang Guangli was a staff member of the Baiyin Company. Both of his parents are practitioners. In 2000, Zhang Guangli and his father were sentenced to a forced labor camp. In less than one month after he was released from the labor camp in June 2001, the lawless authorities sentenced his mother to a forced labor camp. Shortly afterwards, one evening in the middle of September, policemen broke into his home and took him to a club, tortured him there overnight with excruciating means and forced him to jump from the second floor. He sustained a fractured vertebra. The police didn't compensate him at all. While recovering at home, Zhang Guangli strengthened his righteous thoughts and he recovered very quickly. In order to avoid continuous persecution, he has to constantly live in exile. His mother was released by the end of 2001, but was again put into a detention center in August 2002. There is no further information about her so far. A happy family was destroyed by this vicious Jiang regime.
[Anlu City, Hubei Province] Illegal Sentencing and Imprisonment of Dafa Practitioners Zhu Dahua, Lei Daying, Gong Huatao, Wang Li and Another Practitioner
Presently, we know that a Dafa materials production site in Anlu City was destroyed. TV stations in Suizhou City and Xiaogan City reported this incident in a distorted broadcast, which drew the attention of vicious people Zhao Zhifei and Chen Xunqiu in Hubei Province. They held a special meeting in Anlu City and transferred the director of the Political & Judicial Department from Hanchuan City to Anlu City, to conduct a raid against Anlu City's Dafa practitioners. On the evening of August 15, 2002, some lawless personnel illegally broke into and ransacked people's homes. They arrested over a dozen Dafa practitioners. On the evening of September 28, they conducted another round of searches and once again arrested a dozen practitioners. Two of them managed to escape. Mr. Zhu Dahua, Mr. Lei Daying, Mr. Gong Huatao, Ms. Wang Li and another practitioner, name unknown, were sentenced to imprisonment.
[Changzhou City, Jiangsu Province] Teacher Xiang Juan from the Chemical College is Sentenced to Three Years of Forced Labor
Dafa practitioner Ms. Xiang Juan from Changzhou City, Jiangsu Province is 27 years old. She suffered persecution from people at various levels of her work unit and from police department personnel only because she persisted in cultivating Dafa. In 2000, she was forced to resign from Changzhou City's Chemical College. Later on, every time she obtained a new job, she was fired within a few days due to the interference from persons of the local Political & Judicial Department. At last, she had no choice but to stay at home, unemployed. By the end of 2001, Xiang Juan went to Beijing to validate the Fa and was arrested by police. She managed to escape and had to live in exile. A few months later, by tapping her phone, police arrested her at Suzhou City where her newly-wed husband works. In the process of arresting Xiang Juan, the corrupt personnel spent nearly 200,000 Yuan [200 Yuan is the average monthly income in rural areas of China]. They sentenced her to three years of forced labor, put her in the Judong Women's Forced Labor Camp, and made her participate in brainwashing classes, over and over again. The work units of every Dafa practitioner being held at the brainwashing class were each extorted nearly 20,000 Yuan.
