2. [Changchun City, Jilin Province] Eleven Falun Dafa Practitioners Illegally Sentenced to Prison; Family Members under Persecution As Well
Among the thirteen Falun Dafa practitioners who have been recently and illegally sentenced to prison, ten are male. They are Yang Guang, Zhang Chunyu, Liu Shuang, Lu Yan, Wang Hongge, Sun Changde, Wang Juncheng, Yang Feng, Bai Ye, and Zheng Weidong. They are currently held in the No.2 Prison of Jilin City. Details about the three female practitioners are not yet available. The ten male practitioners are said to have been sent to brainwashing classes and have not been able to meet with family members for two months.
The wife of Falun Dafa practitioner Lu Yan was arrested on March 9, and has since been sentenced to one year of forced labor. She is being held in the Heizuizi Female Forced Labor Camp in Changchun. Shen Jianli, wife of Falun Dafa practitioner Zheng Weidong, was arrested on the same day that the so-called "public trials" of Falun Dafa practitioners were held. Some people heard from the police that Shen has died as a result of police brutality. Wang Hongge's wife has been constantly harassed by the police since March 5. The sound of the police pounding on her door scared her 1 year-old baby, making the baby burst into tears and cry for extended periods of time. The police have also arrested her sister-in-law (also a Falun Dafa practitioner, whose name is not known), who was taken to the Luyuan Police Department in Changchun. The police tried to make her knock on Wang Hongge's wife's door. Refusing to assist the police by knocking on Wang's door, she had to jump from the second floor and was seriously injured. She was sent to a police hospital, but her family members were not notified until twenty-four hours later. Wang Hongge's wife and her 1-year-old baby had to stay away from home. Yang Guang's wife and Yang Feng's wife stood up during the trial of the thirteen practitioners in order to stop the police from beating Falun Dafa practitioners in the courtroom. Both have been illegally detained.
3. [Xiamen City, Fujian Province] Brainwashing Classes Cannot Change the Righteous Thoughts of Falun Dafa Practitioners
The Drug Rehabilitation Enforcement Center in Xiamen City has been holding brainwashing classes since September 2001. Falun Dafa practitioners have strongly resisted these classes. Starting from the second session (in December 2001), no new Falun Dafa practitioners have joined the classes. At present only two Falun Dafa practitioners are held there. Below is more information about these two practitioners.
Zeng Linghua, female, strongly upheld Falun Dafa during the 1998 Xiamen Daily incident. After July 22, 1999, she was arrested on a train while on her way to Beijing to safeguard Falun Dafa. She was then sentenced to one year of forced labor at the end of 1999. She refused to be brainwashed while in the Fujian Female Forced Labor Camp. She persisted in practicing Falun Gong exercises, and refused to wear badges on her chest. Her noble attitude has encouraged a lot of other people. During her forced labor term, she was deprived of sleep for over ten days. Under such extreme torture as well as the misleading lies made up by those who "enlightened" along an evil path, she wrote "four statements" [renouncing Falun Gong]. She realized she was wrong afterwards, and made a speech in an "exposing and criticizing" meeting to tell her own cultivation experiences and validate Falun Dafa. This significantly shocked the evil. At the end of August 2001, she was sent to the Drug Rehabilitation Enforcement Center in Xiamen City. She went on hunger strikes several times to protest and refused to participate in the forced brainwashing sessions.
Gao Xueqing resolutely went to Beijing to uphold Falun Dafa after July 22, 1999. Later Gao signed a letter addressed to the National People's Congress and was thus put under arrest. After being held illegally at the detention center for over a year, Gao was unjustly sentenced to forced labor for half a year. Gao made some mistakes while in the forced labor camp. Upon being released, Gao made a solemn declaration [recognizing and undoing his mistakes] and rejoined the Fa-rectification cultivation. Gao was sent to the brainwashing class in December 2001. Gao continued to resolutely uphold Falun Dafa in the class and went on hunger strikes several times. One such hunger strike lasted over ten days. Gao continues to practice Falun Gong exercises and firmly refuses to be brainwashed.
Another Falun Dafa practitioner, Xue Yulun, was deceived and abducted by the police. From Longyan, he was taken to the Drug Rehabilitation Enforcement Center in Xiamen City at the end of December last year. Xue was on bail in his hometown of Long Yan. The next day Gao was sent to brainwashing classes, where he refused to be force-fed food or liquid. After abstaining from water for seven days, Gao started to cough up blood. The authorities had to release Gao from the classes. Prior to this, Gao had walked out of a detention center by refusing to be fed anything for nine days.

4. [Guangdong Province] "610 Office" Enlarges Brainwashing Class to Intensify the Persecution
The "610 Office" of Guangdong Province has intensified its persecution towards Dafa practitioners. They enlarged a brainwashing class in Sanshui and urged each work unit to kidnap and send Dafa practitioners to the brainwashing class. Guangdong practitioners, please keep righteous thoughts and eliminate the evil, firmly resisting the arrangement of the evil forces.
Chen Xianzhang, a practitioner from the Guangdong Educational College, was taken away by "610 Office" personnel this morning. We do not know where he is presently detained.
5. [Zhenzhou City, Henan Province] Shibalihe Labor Camp Continues to Persecute Dafa Practitioners
Shibalihe Women's Labor Camp in Zhenzhou city tortures steadfast practitioners both mentally and physically. Every day at noon they force practitioners, in teams of three, to stand outside exposed to the hot sun for several hours. At night they prevent practitioners from sleeping, forcing them to receive brainwashing. Police search relatives who come to visit practitioners and force them to write "statements" to slander and defame Dafa; otherwise police will not allow them to visit.
6. [Huhhot city, Inner Mongolia] A Materials Site Is Destroyed
Recently a large materials site in Huhhot City was ransacked. Fifteen practitioners were arrested. Police found the materials site first and then waited to catch the fifteen practitioners who went there successively. Two practitioners got away by sending righteous thoughts.
7. [Shijiazhuang City, Hebei Province] Dafa Practitioners Are Kidnapped
