(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.

Aside from practitioners sending forth righteous thoughts to eliminate evil, this article can be called a "news" item with a new date but old content. Ever since July 20, 1999, under the policies to "eradicate within three months," "eradicate within one year," "eradicate before xx [a specific date]," "ruin their reputation, cut them off financially and destroy them physically," such nationwide initiatives of terror have taken place many times and all ended without reaching their final goal.

According to practitioners abroad, for the past three years, Falun Gong was not only not eradicated in China, it has flourished in foreign countries. Especially abroad, every practitioner is using all available means to spread the truth. It creates the feeling that practitioners all over the world are one body and inseparable.

Recalling two news items I read several days ago, one stated that for the past 13 months, more than 54,700 people declared on Clearwisdom.net that their guarantee statements are void, and they would again return to cultivation. In the three months from November 1, 2001 to the end of January 2002, more than 13,200 people published these solemn declarations. Another news item is, according to the Falun Dafa Information Center, since the first "Falun Dafa Day" was founded in Changchun City at the end of last year, within over a month, practitioners in more than half of all provinces in China have founded "Falun Dafa Day" in their own province or city, including Shandong Province, Heilongjiang Province, Jilin Province and Liaoning Province, etc., where the highest number of practitioners' deaths have been reported. These Falun Dafa Days signify that "everything is revived, the climate will be renewed and the evil is about to be completely eliminated." We all know it is hard to reach Clearwisdom.net in China. It is easy to infer that the true picture of persecution that lies behind these solemn declarations is far from complete.
