[China] Jiang Regards Falun Gong as Top Enemy, Sends Down Another Order

In a document sent down within the Chinese Central Committee, Falun Gong is regarded as the top enemy and the document ordered the arrest of all Falun Gong practitioners "at large" at whatever effort and expense before the "16th National People's Congress." Whoever arrests a Falun Gong practitioner will be rewarded with a bonus of up to 10,000 to 50,000 Yuan [500 and 300 Yuan are the average monthly income in urban and rural areas of China, respectively] depending to the specific situation. Let us eliminate the evil with righteous thoughts. At the same time, we hope overseas Dafa practitioners can expose Jiang's evil to the international community.

[China] Jiang Regime Schemes to Search for Dafa Practitioners Living Away from Home Before the "16th National People's Congress"

Before stepping down, in order to achieve his purpose of physically eliminating Falun Gong practitioners, Jiang is forcing police departments, residential committees and the notorious "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 search for Dafa practitioners living away from home through checking residence cards nationwide for the time period between now and the beginning of the "16th National People's Congress." Dafa practitioners all over the world, let us strengthen our efforts of clarifying the truth and completely annihilate the evil factors in other dimensions that manipulate the head of evil and the "610 Office" with our powerful righteous thoughts.

[Northeastern China] Dafa Practitioners Hold Conferences for Collective Improvement

On August 7, 2002, forty practitioners from a city in Northeastern China held a Dafa conference. The theme of the conference coincided with the article, "To Fellow Practitioners" that was published on July 1, 2002 on Clearwisdom. Dafa practitioners enlightened to the Fa based on the Fa, shared experiences, and saw clearly the evil's weakness. The conference helped practitioners to collectively improve and take the initiative to step forward to clarify the truth.

Through the experience sharing, the practitioners concluded that we should act as one body and give priority to Dafa in every environment. We also distinguished the difference between Fa-rectification cultivation and individual cultivation. The mission of Dafa practitioners is to validate the Fa and offer salvation to sentient beings. In addition, we clarified the relationship among self, Teacher, the Fa, fellow practitioners, sentient beings, the old evil forces, and those evil beings and vicious people being manipulated by the old evil forces. We realized that each practitioner should openly and proudly walk his Fa-rectification path well. We understood that none of the three things -- studying the Fa, clarifying the truth and sending forth righteous thoughts -- can be overemphasized at the expense of the other two. We also realized that problems stem from a lack of belief in Dafa and Teacher. As long as practitioners do things based on the Fa that Teacher taught us, everything can be done well.

Dafa practitioners who are doing well shared their own experiences of validating Dafa with righteous thoughts and righteous actions. When we encounter problems, as long as we can look at them from the perspective of the Fa, believe in Teacher, believe in Dafa, and hold righteous thoughts, the holiness and dignity of Dafa will manifest.

A week later, another dozen practitioners held a conference. They encouraged each other and became more determined with righteous thoughts. The two conferences enabled the practitioners in that area to improve as one body.

[Guangzhou City, Guangdong Province] Lengthy Detention of Dafa Practitioners by People from the "610 Office"

Authorities from the "610 Office" in Guangzhou City have illegally detained steadfast Dafa practitioners for a long time. After many of the Dafa practitioners' forced labor terms expired, policemen directly sent them to brainwashing classes for further persecution. Dafa practitioner Ms. Wang Huimin, Ms. Lin Yingyu, Ms. Dengfang, Mr. Yu Weiming, Ms. Zou Yuyun and Mr. Tan Shaowei were directly sent to a brainwashing class from a forced labor camp. Mr. Lin Shaohua and Ms. Wu Yuanzhen, who had already been released, were once again arrested from home by lawless policemen and forcibly sent to a brainwashing class.

[Guangzhou City, Guangdong Province] Dafa Practitioner Ms. Zou Yuyun is Brutally Tortured at the Brainwashing Class in the Huangpu Drug Rehabilitation Center

In January 2002, Zou Yuyun, a female Dafa practitioner from Guangzhou City, was forcibly sent to a brainwashing class held at the Huangpu Drug Rehabilitation Center from the forced labor camp for further persecution after she had been detained at Guangzhou City's Chatou Female Forced Labor Camp for a year longer than her detention term.

Because Zou Yuyun refused to compromise with her persecutors in the brainwashing class, they removed all of her clothes and beat her black and blue all over. They fed her hot pepper water, pushed her head down into the water to suffocate her, and smeared mustard in her eyes and nose. But no matter how brutally the evil being tortured her, Zou Yuyun never gave up her faith in Dafa. Now the vile persons have no alternative, so they intend to send her to a forced labor camp. They searched her home and tried to find any shred of evidence, but found nothing. Because they feared that Zou Yuyun would tell people how evil the brainwashing class was, they dared not to release her. It was heard that they would send her to some other place, but no one knows where.
