[Harbin, Heilongjiang Province] The Police Arrest Falun Dafa Practitioners
Recently, a person inside the police department revealed that they have received a secret order from higher authorities that instructed the police to arrest all the Falun Gong practitioners in Harbin City.
[Cangzhou City, Hebei Province] Dongguang County Police Illegally Arrest More Than Ten Falun Dafa Practitioners
Since the Sixteenth Party's Congress, the police in Dongguang County have illegally arrested more than ten practitioners. They confiscated practitioners' homes and took all their Dafa books, materials, and cash. The city sent more than ten people to the county and formed a group specifically to persecute Falun Gong. The police tortured the practitioners by force-feeding them water with a high salt content, cuffing them to iron chairs for days and nights, depriving them of sleep, and disallowing family visits. During the winter, there is no heat or bedding in the detention center. The police even said, "As long as they [the practitioners] are not tortured to death, as long as they still have breath, [they will be treated this way]." Among these practitioners are mothers who have young children and the elderly. The persecution is still going on. Some practitioners are forced to leave their homes in order to avoid the persecution.
[Jinan City, Shandong Province] Jinan Forced Labor Camp Tortures Female Falun Dafa Practitioners
Female practitioner Duan Shulan has been illegally detained in the third squad. She requested an open dialogue with the authorities to release all the practitioners who were illegally detained there against the law. The police not only refused to pass her request to the authorities, but they blocked the information by locking Duan in a single cell and brutally torturing her. In order to resist the persecution, Duan has been on a hunger strike for nearly two months. Although it is hard for us to know the details, we know that the police are force-feeding her at least once a day.
At least twenty practitioners in the camp are firmly practicing Falun Gong. The police have been crazily torturing them. Knowing the physical tortures would not affect these practitioners, the police have been torturing them mentally by disallowing their families to visit and making their lives difficult. The camp does not provide heating in the winter even when it is below -10o C [14oF]. The police force practitioners to squat or stand for long periods of time, to perform heavy labor or work in hazardous environments, and provide poor quality food at inflated prices. They do not allow practitioners to write appeal letters or telephone calls to families. All the letters to their families have to pass their inspection before being mailed out.

It has absolute power over each level of administration in the Party, as well as over the political and judiciary branches] set up a brainwashing center in Qiaobei and has been persecuting practitioners. They lock practitioners in the building, deprive them of their freedoms, and detain them for unlimited periods.

Among the evil people is Yi Xiaofeng who has been actively participating in the persecution. Minghui.net reported Li Changqing as the director of the "610 Office" who claimed, "Those who do not give up [Falun Gong] can't be released even with severe illnesses and will be sent to the detention center or the drug rehabilitation institute [to be tortured]."

[China] Falun Dafa Practitioners Paste Their Solemn Declarations on Electric Power Poles
Some practitioners signed statements to quit Falun Gong under extreme pressure. Having realized that this was wrong, they announced that the signatures were invalid. Unable to contact Minghui.net, they pasted their solemn announcements to electric power poles in order to show the people of the world their determination in practicing Dafa.
Currently, they are being monitored 24 hours a day. However, they are still going out to clarify the truth. They said, "Teacher please know that we will not discredit Falun Dafa."
[Zibo City, Shandong Province] The Crimes of Township Party Secretary Zhang Xiyou
Zhang Xiyou is the Communist Party Committee Secretary in Tianjia Village, the Town of Nanding, Zhangdian District. Since July 20, 1999, he has been persecuting Falun Dafa practitioners.
At the Spring Festival of 2000, Zhang persecuted practitioners Zou Liyu and her son Wang Liang for going to Beijing to appeal. He ordered the illegal detention of Wang Liang for more than two months because Wang refused to write a "repentance statement". He also stopped Wang's family members from working and caused conflicts in his family thus forcing him to be divorced. In August 2000, Zhang bribed the doctors in Hongshan Mental Hospital. Without any medical proof or order from the local police station, they forced the family to sign and threw Zou Liyu and her son into a mental hospital. There they brutally tortured the two with electric shocks, force-feedings, and injection of toxic drugs. Zou Liyu lost consciousness many times in several days from the torture and Wang Liang's body was so severely damaged that he still suffers severe insomnia. In May 2001, Zhang continued to persecute Wang Liang and forced him to leave home in order to avoid the persecution. In November 2002, Zhang sent Zou Liyu to a brainwashing center that was organized by the Zibo City "610 Office". All these incidences have caused great pain to the practitioners' families.
Recently, Zhang escalated his persecution of Dafa practitioners. He added more security at night to look for Falun Dafa materials and ordered people in the village to report any practitioner who clarifies the truth.
