[Harbin City, Heilongjiang Province] Practitioner Gao Ke Sent to Changlinzi Forced Labor Camp Again
Practitioner Gao Ke was arrested and detained in Taiping Police Sub-department on March 12, 2002. On March 21, Gao was sentenced to 3 years in a forced labor camp and sent to Changlinzi Forced Labor Camp on April 5. Because Gao refuses to give up cultivation, the officials put Gao into a confinement cell. The confinement cells in Changlinzi Forced Labor Camp are less than 4.5 feet high, and people inside the labor camp call them "the kennels." The conditions inside the confinement cells are worse than ever before. Under the fierce torture, Gao's whole body is swollen, vomits blood and has blood in the stool. Gao Ke is extremely weak and in a critical condition.
We urgently call for all kind people to call the labor camp and stop the perpetrators' brutal persecution. The phone number is: 86-451-4101454 ext. 3309
[Harbin City, Heilongjiang Province] Jiang's Regime Hires Unemployed People to Watch Cable TV Lines
After the Changchun Cable TV Network incident, the officials fear that similar things might happen in Harbin City. They hired many unemployed people around 30 years old through the residential community offices. Each of these hired people are given a walkie-talkie, and they are told to patrol along the TV cables back and forth on their bicycles or motorcycles 24 hours a day. These people are also told to watch for practitioners distributing truth-clarifying materials. The perpetrators clearly told these people to use violence on any "suspicious people" and report them to the local police stations. At this time, the perpetrators have hired many people, and they force the TV stations to pay their salaries and all other related expenses.

[Jiamusi City, Heilongjiang Province] Police Officers Stalk Practitioner Kang Aifen for 6 Days
On April 14, 2002, the police in Jiamusi City went to knock on the door of practitioner Kang Aifen's home. Knowing that the police came to illegally arrest her, Kang refused to open the door. Kang's husband (not a practitioner) was not at home at the time. The police then waited outside Kang's home 24 hours a day. Later on, the perpetrators hired a woman to knock Kang's door. The police sat around in the residence building, unnerving the other residents. Two police vehicles blocked the building entrance, and the perpetrators cut the power wires and telephone lines of Kang's apartment. Kang cannot cook or use the phone to call anyone outside. Her child has been forced to leave home. Zhongshan Police Station mobilized more police officers and surrounded Kang's home. A few days ago, Kang Aifen said that there was not much food left in her apartment. Kang's apartment has been under siege for 6 days, and the situation is urgent. We call the attention of kind people to Kang's situation.

Recently, many updated truth-clarifying CDs and fliers were dropped in the mailboxes of the residence buildings in Zhongshan University in Guangzhou City. All the materials were delivered in one night. Learning the news, the persecutors have become very frightened. Some unlawful officials of Guangdong Province ordered the police to arrest the practitioners immediately. In a special meeting, the Province police ordered their subordinates to arrest practitioners who distribute truth-clarifying materials. They also encouraged their subordinates to do this with promises of promotions and money. The police plan to monitor the practitioners who had been illegally sent to forced labor camps, and immediately report to their superiors once they notice suspicious actions by the practitioners. They use the practitioners' work unit staff, door guards, and security guards to monitor the practitioners and do night patrols.

However, on April 6, 2002, Zhao woke up and immediately recognized her mother and her neighbors, words like "Dafa is good" and the Fa rectification verses.
[Hunan Province] Persecution of Practitioners in Hunan Women's Prison
Practitioners Jin Shunchun and Miao Cui, both from Hunan province, are being continuously tortured in Hunan Women's Prison. They are put in confinement cells, denied the right to meet their family members, physically punished, and beaten in front of everyone else. Because they do not cooperate with the persecution and used their legal rights to appeal for Dafa and for themselves, the prison guards retaliated by forcing them onto a stage and humiliating them publicly.
Mo Xiaoyan is a practitioner from Luowang, Yueyang City. Because she does not cooperate with the persecution and refuses to work inside the prison, the guards force her to the worksite everyday, where her hands are cuffed behind her back. The guards also put her into a confinement cell.
