BEIJING (AP) - An American and a Canadian were detained Monday while protesting China's effort to blame the banned Falun Gong for a fiery group suicide attempt last year.
(Clearwisdom.net) Zheng Yanxiong, a special correspondent for Clearwisdom Net, reports from China on February 8 - today, it has been confirmed by sources within the Chinese police system, that beginning from midnight on February 9, 2002, Jiang's criminal group will launch another round of large-scale persecution of Falun Gong practitioners in China that will last for two to three days. The order has already been passed down from China's National Police Department to various local police departments and to the administrative level of county governments, with the title "An Urgent Notification About Solidly Intensifying the Work of Striking and Prevention of... Illegal Activities." It is said that this persecution is coordinated by the National Police Department, provincial police departments, and city "610 offices," and different agencies will participate. Targeting regions connecting urban and rural areas and rural counties, the police will search rented houses, medium and small hotels, work unit boarding houses and Internet cafes. They will also set up blockades in various areas. The Security and Supervision Department will closely monitor the Internet, in addition to conducting picture and fingerprint comparison of practitioners to help expand the persecution. Practitioners in China who have learned about the news are actively sending forth righteous thoughts to eliminate the evil.
