Fully aware of this incident, the central authorities are blocking the news. News departments are being tightly controlled for increased security.

[Chengdu City, Sichuan Province] Police Break Legs of Falun Dafa Practitioner Zhu Li
According to reports, female Falun Dafa practitioner Zhu Li is now being detained in the detention center of the Pi County Police Department in Chengdu City. Her legs were recently broken, and she is currently unable to take care of herself.
Late at night on December 21, 2001 Zhu Li was abducted from her temporary residence by local police. She was righteous and stern, and refused to cooperate with the evil. She solemnly condemned the thugs for helping the Chinese dictator in carrying out evil deeds. She suffered inhuman torture and was transferred to several places for detention. In the detention center of the Chengchu City Police Department, Zhu Li went on a hunger strike to protest the persecution of Falun Dafa and Falun Dafa practitioners. She was brutally force-fed by the vicious policemen. During the force-feeding, she threw up the tube that was inserted into her stomach through her nostrils and entered her mouth. In order to resist the force-feeding, she tightly bit on one end of the tube that was in her mouth, but the frenzied policemen grabbed the other end of the tube and yanked it very hard. It was extremely cruel. Her nose and mouth were badly injured, and there was blood all over her face and chest. Later, she was transferred to the Pujiang County Detention Center in Chengdu City and illegally detained there. It is not known what other places she has been transferred to, but currently she is being detained in the detention center of the Pi County Police Department in Chengdu City with both legs broken.
Zhu Li has been sentenced to one year of forced labor for going to Beijing to appeal in December 1999. She was detained in the Nanmusi Female Forced Labor Camp in Zizhong County of Sichuan Province and endured all kinds of torture. After she was released, she was forced to live on the street.
Falun Dafa practitioners He Yuanchao and Liu Yun (female) were abducted with Zhu Li from the same house on December 21. According to reports, He Yuanchao was forced to jump off the building and fell during the abduction, and Liu Yun fell off the building at the police station. They both suffered serious injuries. Presently, they are released on bail provided by family members, and they are back home awaiting the trial. Falun Dafa practitioners Yin Sirong, Chen Jianping, Zhong Shuirong and several other practitioners were also abducted on the same day, but their whereabouts are unknown. All the righteous people around the world, please show your concern for the Falun Dafa practitioners in Chengdu City who are being persecuted.

[Hua'nan City, Heilongjiang Province] Hua'nan Forestry Bureau Illegally Arrests Falun Dafa Practitioners
Zhang Yujie, female, over 30 years old, went to Tiananmen Square on Beijing Falun Dafa Day, February 4, 2002 and successfully unfurled a Falun Dafa banner, shouting, "Falun Dafa is good!" After she was arrested, she went on hunger strike for nearly one month. She was then sent back to her hometown and detained there. Several collaborators in her hometown tried to brainwash her many times, but she remained steadfast.
Liu Xiaolan and Zhang Fenghua (female) were abducted while doing Dafa work. They are currently being detained.
Ge Xiulan, female, is over 60 years old. Although her husband does not practice Falun Gong, he thinks that it is good and supports Falun Dafa work. One time, he was arrested while doing Falun Dafa work, which resulted in trouble for Ge Xiulan. She was arrested from her home in Jiamusi City. Shang Xiping, the former vice director of the Shanshang Police Station of the Forestry Bureau Police Department was abducted in Beijing in November and sent back to Shang's hometown. He is still being detained.
Guo Ren'ai, female, over 50 years old, is the senior teacher of the No. 1 Middle School. She is well known as a good person and a good teacher. After she was abducted in Beijing, in order to resist the persecution and not cause trouble for the local people, she firmly refused to reveal her name. She went on a hunger strike for 8 days and subsequently released. She went back to her hometown with a kind heart, wishing to find the head of the police department to clarify the truth to him directly and advise the local police not to violate the law while carrying out wishes of the Chinese dictator. Before she could do this, the local policemen arrested her at her home for no reason. The local police attempted to send her to the forced labor camps in Harbin City and Jiamusi City, but the labor camps did not accept her. Currently Guo is still being detained.
[Tianshui City, Gansu Province] Three Falun Dafa Disciples Abducted
In early December of 2001, a location storing Falun Dafa truth-material was damaged. Three Dafa disciples were abducted: Yin Xiaolan, Tang Qiong, and Wang Yongmin. Among them, Yin Xiaolan and Wang Yongmin were sent to the Beidao Detention Center, where they were tortured for five days and nights. It is unknown whether they are alive or dead.
[Anda City, Heilongjiang Province] Policeman Openly Robs Practitioner
On September 10, 2001, I went to visit Hao Guiyun, a fellow practitioner. In the evening, Wang Zhandong, the Director of the Xin'an Police Substation in the area broke in and grab my handbag to make an illegal search. I demanded to see his credentials and search warrant. He said to me rudely, "Do you want me to use my gun?" I thought at the moment, "What a vicious policeman he is, no better than a bandit." In this fashion he took away my handbag with my ID, pay card, two deposit certificates (10,000 Yuan and 535 Yuan, respectively ), 300 Yuan in cash, a cellular phone and other personal items inside. I heard later that the policemen intend to keep the money for themselves.
Thinking that I cannot cooperate with them at all, I forced my way out the door. Wang Zhandong, Liu Ansheng and three or four other policemen later ransacked Hao Guiyun's home and confiscated her property. Hao Guiyuan was forced to become homeless. Her daughter Chu Haiyan, a Dafa disciple, was arrested and detained in the Anda Detention Center, where she went on a hunger strike to protest against the persecution. She lost consciousness twice during the hunger strike and suffer multiple injuries at the hands of the police. Hao Guiyun's sister's and niece's homes are also under surveillance. The police often threatened and harassed Hao's sister over the phone or at her home.
People are responsible for the persecution include:
Liu Ansheng and Wang Zhandong, Director of the Xin'an Police Substation

[Shijiazhuang City, Hebei Province] Police Illegally Detain 69-Year-Old Woman in Forced Labor Camp and Deny Bail for Medical Treatment
Shijiazhang Dafa disciple Lu Suzhen, female, is 69 years old. On New Year's Day of 2001, she was abducted while clarifying the truth of Falun Dafa. Then the Yucai Street Police Substation sentenced her to two years in forced labor camp. The 69-year-old woman has been tortured for over a year in the No.1 Team of the Shijiazhuang Forced Labor Camp. Her health has greatly deteriorated due to various forms of mistreatment under the long-term adverse conditions. High blood pressure and other symptoms appeared. What's worse, she didn't eat for over 10 days before the Chinese Lunar New Year. The forced labor camp treats human life as if it were not worth a straw. She's not allowed to be released on bail for medical treatment unless she gives up cultivation practice of Falun Dafa. The policemen from the Yucai Street Police Substation also refused to sign the documents, putting up numerous obstacles to greatly hinder the elderly woman from any bail attempts for medical treatment. They have ignored her ailing condition from being tortured in the forced labor camp.
We appeal to people of goodwill to show their concern for Lu Suzhen's suffering.

[Xianning City, Hubei Province] Police Lure People to Participate in Persecuting Dafa Disciples with Large Monetary Rewards
It was overheard that a person tried to persuade his aunt to give up Falun Gong, because the police put up a notice that whoever reported a Dafa disciple in possession of Teacher's articles would be given a reward of 5000 Yuan. What a shame that the police are sparing no expense in persecuting Dafa disciples.
[Xianning City, Hubei Province] Dafa Disciple's Life in Grave Danger After 30 Days of Hunger and Water Strike
At about 9 p.m. on December 28, 2001, Dafa disciples Chen Yiqun and her mother were ordered to stop by a police vehicle while taking a walk. They didn't obey the order and kept walking. The police vehicle immediately signaled for help. About seven or eight policemen from the Chalukou Police Substation appeared and took them to the police substation. They forcibly conducted a body search, and then the policemen and the people in charge of persecuting Falun Gong at their work units ransacked their home. The police were ordered to perform a thorough search, so the ransacking lasted for three hours. They finally found a copy of Zhuan Falun, a book of Teacher's articles, an exercise music tape, and a booklet with telephone numbers. At around 11 p.m., two more Dafa disciples were arrested. At 1 a.m. Chen Yiqun's mother was released, but the other three were sent to the No.1 Detention Center in Xianning City. Chen Yiqun has already been on a hunger and water strike for about 40 days. She was forced-fed and injected with unknown substances. The police asked her mother to bring money to the detention center for her medical treatment, but her mother refused to cooperate. As a result, the security section of Chen Yiqun's work unit was forced to pay 1000 Yuan.
Dafa disciple Yang Xiaoyong was arrested and forcibly detained in the No. 1 Detention Center in Xianning City at 9 a.m. on January 18, 2002 by several policemen from Chalukou Police Substation. At present, Yang Xiaoyong has been on a hunger and water strike for about 30 days. During the time, he lost consciousness once, and his face has become nearly unrecognizable due to abuse. His life is in great danger. Dafa disciples, please send forth your righteous thoughts to aid fellow practitioners in jail and ask for their immediate release.

[Xianning City, Hubei Province] Facts of the Persecution of Falun Gong Practitioners Committed by Vicious People From Xianning Cigarette Factory in Hubei Province
On April 23, 2001, the Security Section of the Xianning Cigarette Factory actively cooperated with the local police department in persecuting Falun Dafa practitioners. Six practitioners including Wang Lusong, Zhu Boqing, Li Xueping, Li Xuehong, Chen Larong and Huang Qiuzhen were taken from their workplace to the Security Section. Officials from the local police station interrogated them about their attitude toward Falun Gong. Then they transported these practitioners against their will to the local detention center for a brainwashing class. They were held for 20 days for "disrupting social order." After being released from the detention center, the practitioners went back to work. Soon afterwards, however, they received written notification from the factory's office requiring them to attend a brainwashing class for 3 months, for which each of them would be given 10 Yuan [500 Yuan is the average monthly income of an average urban worker] everyday for their living expenses. The practitioners refused this unlawful request, and they still went to work as usual. At the end of the month, they were paid only 300 Yuan of their usual monthly salary. The following month these practitioners still went to work, yet the factory cadre issued another notification, changing their daily pay from 10 Yuan to 5 Yuan. This meant that they would only be earning 150 Yuan per month for their work. The practitioners had no choice but to return home. They were not allowed to go to work and allotted only 150 Yuan per month for living expenses. Moreover, they still had to pay 20 to 40 Yuan every month for the social endowment insurance. The practitioners talked to the responsible officials many times. The officials refused the practitioners' legitimate demands, requiring that they must first guarantee "not to go to Beijing to appeal, not to have contact with other Dafa practitioners, and not to do group practice." Right now, there are seven practitioners who have not been allowed to return to work at this factory for a long time. One practitioner was forced to leave home and live on the streets in order to avoid being arrested. One practitioner was dismissed from his post and forced to retire early. Two practitioners were sentenced to forced labor for 1 and 1.5 years respectively.

[Beijing] Practitioners' Family Members with Righteous Thoughts Resist Corrupt Police in Beijing Who Try to Arrest Falun Dafa Practitioners
Beijing police are extremely afraid of Dafa practitioners who live on the streets. Recently, they have adopted various measures to prevent this, including recruiting those people who were released after accepting the forced brainwashing to report the whereabouts of Dafa practitioners. The criminal police, joint defense team members and their accomplices wait in ambush to arrest practitioners and monitor practitioners' telephones. They come to the homes or work units of practitioners' relatives and friends, using the threat of "guilt by association" to force them to look for the practitioners. They persecute Dafa practitioners by any means possible. The practitioners' family members have awakened, however, and the police and their associates continue to run into dead ends. Dafa practitioners are still devoting themselves to the mighty current of Fa-rectification by offering people salvation.
After one practitioner left home, her family members were frequently harassed by the work unit cadres and police. Her husband firmly said to the other family members and relatives, "She has come to this point, and it's impossible to make her give up this practice. All we can do now is protect her." Another practitioner's daughter was very angry about the police's repeated harassment. She told them, "Go ahead and find my mother if you can. If you do, I'll be able to meet with her in person, also." Another practitioner's relative was harassed many times by the police. This relative scolded the police angrily, "You go look for her any way you can. Why come bother me? You've already disturbed my family life!"
One practitioner's husband said to her, "The police detained me for a couple of days in order to find you. They also took our son directly from school and even detained him for two days. The police said that if you come back voluntarily now, nothing would happen. They will neither send you to the brainwashing class nor ask you to write a guarantee to give up the practice. Everything will be fine as long as you stay at home. The police asked me to take them to the place where you are living. They only want to know where you are. They also said that if you miss this opportunity, the offer will be withdrawn, and they will do nothing more to help you." Her husband continued to say, "The police have said that you'll have no troubles as long as you come back now. Why not return home?" He had been under so much pressure recently that he had become very thin. The Dafa practitioner said, "How can you believe what they say? I was released from jail. Don't I know what it is like inside jail? They have beaten so many practitioners to death!" Her husband suddenly awakened. He gave her some money and let her leave home.
[Beijing] The 610 Office of Shijingshan District in Beijing Uses Collaborators to Torture Falun Dafa Practitioners
The 610 Office [Note: The "610 Office" is 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] of Shijingshan District in Beijing held a vicious brainwashing class at the Shijingshan Railway Employee Hospital. Thugs beat up the practitioners held there. They gave these practitioners injections to force them to give up their beliefs, and they endured severe torture. Most of the thugs who beat practitioners are former practitioners who were brainwashed and turned against Dafa, including Ma Rui, Hou Huilan, Liu Shuyong, and Li Xinshui. They employed many cruel means to torture practitioners.
[Quzhou County, Hebei Province] Vicious Officials Beat Up Falun Gong Practitioner's Family Members, Arousing Resentment Among the Local People
I'm a resident of Quzhou County in Hebei Province, and my wife is a Falun Dafa practitioner. For practicing Falun Gong and being good people, we have been tortured many times. On December 28 of lunar calendar last year, more than ten officials, including Yang Shuhe from the Town Government, Lou Qingwen, Cheng Mengxiang and Ting Chaohua from the police station, as well as some people from the military camp drove to my village. As I locked the door to leave home, their car stopped outside. Without showing proper authorization, they wanted to search my home, but I refused to open the door. They rushed up, grabbed me and pulled me into the car. They punched and kicked me, causing my face to become swollen and bruised. They even sat on my head and tried to force me to curse Dafa and Teacher. I said that I never cursed people. While beating me without mercy, they stole 20 Yuan from my pocket. They are the same as bandits.
When my parents arrived, the neighbors were still taking about it, "You don't go after thieves and robbers, and you only harass good people instead. What you are doing is violating human rights." The officials knew that they were in the wrong, so they drove away. My parents rode bicycles to chase them, yelling to them, "You don't want us to enjoy the New Year's Day. Don't you expect to have a good year, either. I know you." They couldn't succeed in their evil deeds, and so they had to release me.
I don't practice cultivation, but I know that Dafa is good and a righteous law.
[China] Journalists Say, "They Use Us As Tools. What They Need Is Our Limbs, Not Our Brains."
A Dafa practitioner told his friend who worked in a TV station (note: all TV stations in China are state-owned) not to film scenes framing Falun Gong. His friend said, "I certainly will not do that. As journalists, we all know that they use us as tools. What they need is our limbs, not our brains."
[Shijiazhuang City, Hebei Province] Record of Vicious Deeds Committed in the Brainwashing Class of Shijiazhuang City's Legal Affairs Center
Shijiazhuang City's Legal Affairs Center is a vicious, dark den, created by the Forced Labor Reeducation Bureau especially for brainwashing and torturing Dafa practitioners. The personnel working there are the plainclothes police from Shijiazhuang Forced Labor Camp. Among them, police officer Kong Fanyun is extremely vicious, deceitful and cruel. He used all possible means to torture Dafa practitioners. Under his instigation and control, a group of former practitioners who turned against Dafa including Li Liya, Wang Bo and Huang Jianling persecuted Dafa practitioners.
