[Harbin City, Heilongjiang Province] The Number of Falun Dafa Practitioners Abducted to Wanjia Forced Labor Camp Increases
On February 28, 2002, sixteen more Falun Dafa practitioners were sent to Wanjia Forced Labor Camp from A'cheng City. Among the sixteen, two over 50 were not qualified and not accepted while three younger practitioners had high blood pressure and were transferred to a hospital. The rest were unjustly placed under forced labor reeducation.
Shuangchen City sent fourteen practitioners, nine of which were not qualified. The rest were enrolled in the unjust forced labor program. One has since been sent to a hospital due to heart disease. On March 6 three female and several male practitioners were sent in from the No. 2 Harbin Detention Center. On March 14, seven practitioners from other regions arrived to begin serving their forced labor reeducation terms.
[Jilin Province] Even a Handicapped Person Is Not Spared by the Police
Around 6:00 A.M. on March 16, 2002, police in Jilin Province illegally broke into the home of Falun Dafa practitioner Peng Shenghua to search and arrest. The police confiscated Falun Gong truth materials and all Falun Dafa books, cassettes with Fa-lectures and CD's. Peng's home has now been designated as a "black point" [a place where the Police pay a lot of attention to surveillance.] Peng's wife, also a Falun Dafa practitioner, was forced to become homeless in November 2001 to avoid further persecution.
Peng's mother, who is almost 70, his brothers, sisters, and other family members are grief-stricken. They are aware that both of Peng's legs are crippled and it is hard to imagine how he will be able to get by in the detention center. Everyone regards Peng Shenghua as a role model, especially after he started practicing Falun Dafa. Nevertheless, this good person, who cultivates Truthfulness-Benevolence-Forbearance, has been unjustly persecuted and is now detained by the police in Northeastern China.
[Dalian City, Liaoning Province] Police Station Escalates Persecution in Its Jurisdiction
From sources in a police station in Dalian City, orders have been issued from higher authorities that a "comprehensive investigation" is to be carried out against all Falun Dafa practitioners on Dalian's black list. Practitioners in Dalian City, please eliminate the evil and pay attention to safety.
[Jilin Province] Conspiracy of Brainwashing Classes Thwarted During the Period of the Two Conferences
Prior to the two conferences in Beijing [one for the People's Congress and the other for the People's Political Consultative Conference], the evil forces in Mainland China launched a new round of persecution. A city in the province of Jilin decided to re-count all Falun Dafa practitioners by attempting to have them fill out forms. All state-run companies were ordered to carry out a thorough investigation of all their employees and at a prescheduled time to abduct practitioners to the suburbs to attend isolated brainwashing classes.
As soon as the conspiracy went into effect, Falun Dafa practitioners spread the word among themselves. Practitioners set up fixed times to collectively send forth righteous thoughts to eliminate the evil forces that are in charge of this campaign. It was announced publicly that a practitioner's name would be automatically "submitted to higher authorities for further forcible action by the police" if he or she refused to sign the statement of "guarantee" not to go to Beijing or distribute Falun Gong truth materials. All Falun Dafa practitioners firmly refused to sign any form of "guarantee." With forms in their hands, police officers begged practitioners, "You see, it only says that during the period of the two conferences you cannot go to Beijing or distribute materials. It doesn't even ask if you are practicing or not. After the two conferences, if you want to distribute the materials, we can still discuss it. Wouldn't this work for you?"
Practitioners sternly warned the police officers, "We will not sign any 'guarantee' for you. If you dare to violate the Constitution by carrying out a forcible abduction, I will fight with my life to guard my legal rights. We can cooperate when you're doing your job, but not when you're committing crimes. In this repression of Falun Dafa practitioners that is bringing disasters to our country and its people, you are not committing just ordinary crimes. Today you can tell me that your leaders have sent you here. But have you thought about the time when you will be put on trial? Will you be able to excuse yourself like this? Furthermore, Lin Yanzhi, the deputy Party-secretary of Jilin Province (who is in charge of the entire campaign of repression against Falun Gong in Northeastern China), will definitely be put on trial in the future. Is there a single death case in Jilin Province in which he wasn't involved? You still expect that he will be able to excuse you by then?"
Under the righteous thoughts of Falun Dafa practitioners, the brainwashing class sessions were called off during the period of the two conferences in Beijing.
[Zhengzhou City, Henan Province] Police Unlawfully Arrest Five Falun Dafa Practitioners in a Comprehensive Round Up
The Henan Provincial Female Forced Labor Camp nine kilometers west of Zhengzhou City is a black den in terms of carrying out persecution on Falun Gong. Vile people there have unjustly placed innocent practitioners under forced labor and employed all sorts of deceit to force practitioners to give up their belief. They enforce the so-called labor camp regulations with extreme violence. When their brutal beatings of Falun Dafa practitioners is exposed they continue so secretly that even practitioners in the same cell don't know when fellow practitioners are beaten so severely that they can not even walk.
Recently, the corrupt people in the labor camp have printed so-called "statements" that slander Falun Gong and its founder. All family members who come to visit practitioners have been ordered to fill out these forms otherwise they will be denied the meeting. These blatant, law-violating acts have angered the public. Quite a few family members of practitioners tore these forms apart, while others, not daring to express their anger, put the forms in their pockets for future evidence. With two of his children, a middle-aged father came to visit his wife and he seemed to understand a lot of things upon seeing this situation. He said, "In the past I persuaded my wife to quit practicing. We have been fined 50,000 Yuan and have a hard time making a living. [The average monthly salary of an urban worker is about 500 Yuan.] Now I see that it is these people in charge who are so intimidated. They try to force family members to do harmful things behind the backs of practitioners held in the labor camp. What kind of society is this? I now see that she should make further progress in her cultivation, and not be 'reformed'. She has been right all along!"
[Jilin Province] Crimes of Chaoyanggou Labor Camp Persecuting Falun Gong Practitioners
Just for saying, "Falun Dafa is good, recover the reputation of the Teacher of Falun Gong," practitioner Sui Xuetao was severely beaten . The warder used planks and belts to beat Sui mercilessly. Sui sustained bruises over his entire body. His head was so badly swollen that it took him a month to recover. The perpetrators include Wang Kai and Gao XX, who also incited criminals Xu Hui and others to beat the practitioner.
[Jilin Province] The Weather in Jilin City is a Warning
Recently Jilin City has been experiencing abnormal weather conditions. One after the other, sand storms, snow, heavy winds, and dust have occurred. Visibility is greatly restricted. All of these phenomena are not occurring by chance.
Since March 13 evil people in Jilin have devoted a great deal of manpower and materials to preventing kindhearted people from learning the truth. They have utilized bulldozers, fire engines, scrapers, knives, and brushes to remove Dafa truth-clarifying banners and posters. They have even extended their black hands to little children. On Sunday they force children to go to school and then organize both the primary and high school students to remove Dafa truth-clarifying materials in the city. But the truth cannot be blocked, and the Buddha light shines brightly. A few days after they remove the truth materials, painted Dafa slogans and colorful banners show up everywhere. People smile when they see them. Then officials from the "610" office enlist people who do not know the truth to once again cut down the banners strung on electric lines and scrape off the painted slogans. Jilin City's recent bad weather, violent winds, stinging sand and flying debris is the result. Pedestrians have to cover their mouths and faces and are unable to see each other three meters away.
[Hebei province] The Workers' Unit Gathers Traitors to Form a "Help Team" to Damage Dafa
Recently, under the direction of the 610 Office, the Hebei Workers' Unit gathered several traitors to form a so-called "Help to Transform Team" to damage Dafa . These traitors target specific practitioners and besiege them with brainwashing tactics. They attempt to force every practitioner to write the "guarantee letter." These traitors are currently operating at full force. Dafa practitioners, please resist the persecution firmly and wipe out the evil factors behind bad people by using righteous thoughts.
Below are the phone numbers of these traitors (we do not disclose their names temporarily to give them a chance to rectify):
