1. [China] Jiang's Regime Spends 5 Billion Yuan Building Brainwashing Centers; The "610" Office in Beijing Hires Collaborators to Persecute Practitioners
The economy in China is facing a large-scale recession, and the unemployment rate keeps increasing. Instead of taking measures to help the worsening economy, Jiang's regime spends much money in building brainwashing centers and hiring people to persecute Falun Gong practitioners. According to an inside source, Jiang's regime has spent 5 billion Yuan on persecuting Falun Gong in the past year alone.
In the Xicheng District of Beijing, the local "610" office hired some collaborators [former Falun Gong practitioners who have gone astray due to brainwashing and torture]. Headed by a staff member the "610" office, the collaborators have been enlisted to persecute practitioners in a brainwashing class located in a hotel. In addition to room and board, the hired collaborators are also paid a salary.
In the beginning, most of the practitioners sent to the brainwashing class were those who were arrested while promoting Dafa. Recently, the collaborators are taking even harsher measures driven by their desire for money. They try to round up practitioners who used to practice together with them by going around the city trying to contact them. A collaborator recognized a veteran practitioner after simply saying a word of greeting, and then the practitioner was abducted by the persecutors and taken to a brainwashing class. (Among the collaborators, Li Xuejun is one that many practitioners are familiar with. According to practitioners released from the Tuanhe Forced Labor Camp, Li Xuejun went to the Tuanhe Forced Labor Camp in order to conduct brainwashing sessions for steadfast practitioners. His wife is also very active in brainwashing practitioners.
2. [Kunming City, Yunnan Province] Practitioner He Yuanchao is Abducted and Illegally Detained in Kunming Railroad Detention Center
When practitioner He Yuanchao (from Chengdu City, Sichuan Province) was on a trip in May 2002, the police illegally stopped and abducted him at Kunming Train Station in Yunnan Province. They then detained He in Kunming Railroad Detention Center. Since the time he was illegally abducted, He Yuanchao has been on a hunger strike for a month. A few days ago, police from Kunming City and Chengdu City teamed up and illegally ransacked He's home in Qingbaijiang District, Chengdu City, taking away Teacher's pictures, some Dafa books, and some truth-clarifying materials.
For appealing in Beijing in December 1999, He Yuanchao was illegally detained in the Dayan Forced Labor Camp in Ziyang for a year. He became homeless and destitute after being released. On the night of December 21, 2001, when some persecutors were trying to abduct him, He fell from the third floor of a building. As a result, he suffered from multiple injuries and fractures. Inside the hospital, He Yuanchao went on a hunger strike that lasted for over 50 days. Because of the attention of practitioners from all over the world, He was released for medical treatment. However, he was barely recovered from his injuries when the persecutors abducted him again in Kunming Train Station.
We call for people to pay attention to He Yuanchao's situation, as he is on a hunger strike in protest of the persecution.
3. [Mianning County, Sichuan Province] Police Guards from the Baishanban Detention Center Illegally Interrogate Practitioner Mao Kaiming and Threaten Her with a Gun
Mao Kaiming is a 52-year-old female practitioner. On March 8, 2001, while Mao was distributing truth-clarifying fliers near Jiefang Bridge in Mianning County, the local police illegally arrested her and sent her to the Baishanban Detention Center. On the same day, the police illegally interrogated her. Because Mao refused to tell the source of the truth-clarifying fliers, the persecutors slapped her face, hit her hands, and did not provide her with any water to drink for 7 days. They also did not allow her to even wash her face. To resist the persecution, Mao started a hunger strike on the second day of her detention. Her hunger strike lasted for 12 days. On the 6th day, the head of the detention center grabbed her from her bed and threw her on the floor, slapped her face, kicked her, and beat her with a bamboo stick (about 1 inch thick). On the 12th day of her hunger strike, the persecutors tied her to a chair, and then tied the chair to a tree. While three people held her left hand, some other perpetrators forcefully inserted an IV and give her an infusion, containing some nutritional liquid such as glucose, against her will. The persecutors also threatened her with a gun, saying that if she still refused to tell the source of the fliers, they would shoot her.
During her hunger strike, the persecutors interrogated her every day and forced her to stand straight with her hands behind her back. When she refused to cooperate, they beat her. Later on, the perpetrators forced her to do physical labor such as cooking, feeding hogs, carrying excrement, and growing vegetables. The old lady was forced to do the same amount of work that would normally take three strong men to handle. After detaining Mao for 3 or 4 months in the detention center, the perpetrators sent her to the Nanmusi Forced Labor Camp in Sichuan Province.

5. [Handan City, Hebei Province] Guards from The No. 1 Detention Center of Handan City Seriously Injure Practitioner Zhang Jie's Esophagus, Causing Her to Vomit Blood
While practitioner Zhang Jie was walking on a street on April 19, 2002, some vicious guards from the Liulinqiao Police Station abducted her and searched her body. They took away the truth-clarifying materials she had on her and sent her to the No. 1 Detention Center of Handan City. Zhang refused to cooperate with the evil by not giving them her name and by going on a hunger strike. The police guards brutally force-fed her, and they badly injured her esophagus in the process. As a result, Zhang vomited blood. The persecutors also used various brutal means to torture her. Using a painful method of torture, police guard Wu Xia tormented Zhang Jie for one day and one night by forcing her two arms behind her back with the inside of her arms tightly touching each other. As a result, Zhang lost all feeling in her two thumbs, and she could not take care of herself. The perpetrators also put a 60-pound shackle on her feet, and then cuffed her hands to the shackles. Zhang was tortured like that for 7 days and 7 nights, during which time she could not eat, use the restroom, or sleep. Aside from the extreme pain, the torture caused her body to swell. One of Zhang's legs twitched continuously, and she could not stand or even sit. Because of the vicious torture, Zhang's health deteriorated to such an extent that she was sent to a hospital. Her current whereabouts and condition are unknown.

7. [Xichang City, Sichuan Province] Crimes Committed by Police Officer Li Yuxu
Li Yuxu is the former head of Section No. 1 of Xichang City Police Department. Li was a leader in persecuting Dafa practitioners in Xichang City. According to incomplete statistics, Li has sent 30 practitioners to forced labor camps and illegally detained about 80 practitioners. Among the practitioners detained, the police beat 13 of them. One practitioner was beaten so badly that his/her legs were disabled. The total amount of money extorted from practitioners in Xichang City is 130,500 Yuan. The police stole the life-savings of 300 Yuan from a family when they were ransacking the home. The work units of several practitioners pay them only 200 to 300 Yuan per month. Many practitioners were forced to become homeless and destitute, and many families are broken apart.
For his crimes in persecuting Falun Gong, Li Yuxu was praised and rewarded by his superiors in Xichang City at the end of 2001. However, the practitioners' solid belief toward Dafa is indestructible. They persist in clarifying the truth and saving people who are deceived by the slander and lies. Their righteous deeds drove people like Li Yuxu crazy. Even when Li was slapping and punching some practitioners he shouted words of fear.
Li recently got involved in an affair. He had a terrible fight with another man, during which Li used his gun to shoot the other man and almost kill him. As a result, the police department removed him from his position and put him under detention.
