[Huaiyang, Henan Province] An 80-year-old Woman Actively Clarifies the Truth
There is an old woman in her 80's who is a Dafa practitioner in Huaiyang, Henan Province. After she learned that fellow practitioners were all engaged in distributing truth-clarifying materials to save people in this world, she became actively involved as well. She walked down a muddy and slippery path and went to a village 3 kilometers away to distribute truth-clarifying materials. By the time she got back home, it was already past midnight. To print truth materials, she used 1,000 Yuan [the average monthly salary is 500 Yuan in urban areas of China] that she had been saving for years.
[Daqing City, Heilongjiang Province] Wicked Police Officers in Dumeng County Abduct a Dafa Practitioner
Prior to New Year's Day, a senior couple approaching 70 years of age went to post banners to persuade people to be good. A devious policeman named Lu Wei of the Central Police Station in Dumeng County tailed them. Lu Wei led a group of four or five policemen to conduct an illegal search of this couple's home. They further pressured the couple for the source of the banners. Currently, this couple is under detention on criminal charges. The wicked police have declared that forced labor "reeducation" was pending. During the detention, the husband suffered from a recurrence of heart problems. Ren Caijun, the chief of the Central Police Station, told the couple's family members that, "If he dies, it is to be counted as a suicide, so his death will be in vain."

Female Dafa practitioners Cui Ruhui and Li Hongying are still being held in custody after their terms have expired.
