[Jilin City, Jilin Province] Officials in a Community and Police Office Coerce Innocent Middle School and Elementary School Students to Destroy Dafa Truth-Clarifying Materials
Since March 13, the evil force in Jilin City has been extremely rampant. Their demon claws reached even to the poor children. On Sunday, officials in the Community Office and Police Offices instigated and organized students from many middle schools and elementary schools to deface and remove the Dafa truth-clarifying materials posted in the city.
We call on all the kind-hearted people to please pay attention to Falun Gong and safeguard the children!
In addition, two more Dafa practitioners were arrested when they were posting Dafa truth-clarifying materials in the Changyi District of Jilin City.
[Dingxing County, Hebei Province] Seventeen Dafa Practitioners are Illegally Arrested; Jing Mingzhi, Liu Wenxin and Other Lawless Officials Are Responsible
On February 27, 2002, led by Jing Mingzhi and Liu Wenxin, vicious ruffians from Gaoli Township, Dingxing County of Hebei Province, illegally arrested 17 practitioners and confiscated their properties. All of sudden the township government became a jail. Offices were turned into the rooms for interrogation accompanied by torture. The thugs were rude and brutal and relentlessly tortured these practitioners. The practitioners tolerated the extreme pain without complaints and retaliation. Practitioners clarified the truth to them again and again, but they still hate Dafa and Dafa practitioners. We call on all people from all walks of life to support and pay attention to this issue. We call on all practitioners to eliminate the evils with righteous thoughts and offer salvation to sentient beings.
[Shandong Province] On March 6th, Dafa Banners Manifest the Dignity of Dafa during "Falun Dafa Day" in a Certain City
March 6, 2002 (" Jingzhe Day" on the Chinese lunar calendar) was a city's Falun Dafa Day in Shandong Province. On the morning of that day many Dafa banners reading, "Falun Dafa is Good" and "Restore the Reputation of my Teacher," were displayed here and there in many districts of the city, which manifested the greatness and dignity of Dafa. It not only effectively shocked the evils but also validated the saying, "force can't change human hearts." Each practitioner used different methods to clarify the truth to the public in order to save sentient beings and help Teacher to rectify the Fa.
[Chengdu City, Sichuan Province] The "Law Education Class" at Wuhou District is Actually a Lawless Jail
The "law education class" in Tongjiang Town hosted by Gao Mingliang, director of Wuhou District's Political and Judicary Committee, was actually a private jail that trampled the law. All detainees in the class were forcibly arrested from their homes merely because they were Falun Gong practitioners. Policemen, guards and detainee accompaniers, the number of whom were three times that of the practitioners, controlled all of practitioners' freedoms. Any practitioners who tried to discuss law or human rights with them would be beaten up. In order to protect their basic human rights, these practitioners have been on a hunger strikes several times. Most practitioners have been illegally detained more than four months. We hope people with a sense of justice pay attention to this serious law violation issue.
The following are some practitioners who were detained there:
Jiangxi Street, Chengdu City: Zhao Yu
Jinyang District: Ms. Zhang Shengrong, 62 years old; Ms. Wang Fuying, 60 years old; Ms. Zheng Youmei, 56 years old; Mr. Liu Zhenhai, 58 years old;

One is whether the student has a family member who is practicing Falun Gong. The other is whether the student himself/herself is a practitioner. Fellow practitioners from Jiangsu Province and practitioners all over the world reading this news, please collectively sent forth righteous thoughts to completely eliminate the evil behind it and prevent it from persecuting Dafa practitioners.
[Daxing'anlingArea, Heilongjiang Province] Brutal Force-Feeding in Jiagedaqi Detention Center Causes Serious Injury to a Female Dafa Practitioner
In November 2001, a female Dafa practitioner was kidnapped to Jiagedaqi District's Detention Center. In order to protest the illegal persecution, she refused to cooperate with the police. She did not tell her name and staged a hunger strike. The guards at the detention center brutally force-fed her. Guard Zhang Chen and policeman Wang Yongming inhumanly force-fed her six times within half an hour. Wang Yongming put a handful of salt in the water each time and then force-fed her. They also tied the practitioner up for a long period of time. Now they have caused serious injury to practitioners' stomach and her mucous membranes and also broke her left ring finger.

[Beijing] Vile Person Zhang Honglin Advocates Using Mental Hospitals to Persecute Falun Gong Practitioners
Zhang Honglin is a researcher from the Qigong Research Laboratory of the Chinese Medicine Research Institute.
His major Crimes:
- Writing Slandering Articles
- Direct Participation in Persecution
He wrote articles advocating the use of mental hospitals to persecute Dafa practitioners. Two articles were published in the People's Daily; also, another one in the No.103 periodical of Information Collection; one in the Beijing Daily and one on the No.5414 periodical of Internal Reference.
Beginning September 10 to 29, 2001, in order to assist the local "610 Office" (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) to persecute Falun Gong practitioners, he went to nine districts/cities in Fujian Province, for the fifth time. He is the earliest and most active advocator for using mental hospitals to persecute practitioners. He actively requested to take part in the persecution at the front line and claimed, "I have been working in this field for a long period of time, and so I am willing to participate in the work organized by the department in charge."
He actively gave advice on methods of persecution; his published suggestions include:
- The central department in charge should organize experienced psychiatric experts from all over the country to give the arbitrary diagnosis of "mental disease" to Falun Gong practitioners.
- Administer psychiatric treatment to Falun Gong practitioners first, followed by brainwashing.
