[Anshan City, Liaoning Province] Brutal Torture of 20 Practitioners in Anshan City's Forced Labor Camp
Recently, twenty determined Dafa practitioners at Anshan City's Forced Labor Camp were merged into a "direct-control" division.

We hope that practitioners will send forth the most determined and purest righteous thoughts to eliminate the evil factors in other dimensions that are persecuting Dafa.

[China] Police Departments Install So-Called "Integrated Security Systems"
At present, police departments in some cities are installing so-called "Integrated Security Systems."

These projects cost huge amounts of money, and they are a reflection of the decline of social order under Jiang's dictatorship. We hope that fellow practitioners who are doing truth-clarification work in these cities will pay attention to their safety.
