Persecution of Practitioners By the Political and Judiciary Committee, 610 Office and Policemen in Gongzhuling City, Jilin Province
Since July 20, 1999, the Political and Judiciary Committee, 610 Office Gongzhuling City Police Department and other people who follow Jiang Zemin's political group in persecuting Dafa practitioners have used the most vicious means to force Dafa practitioners to give up practicing. Some examples are illegal arrests, detention, brainwashing, forced labor, prison sentences as well as other vicious means in an effort to force Dafa practitioners to give up their practice.
In September 1999, Mr. Li Hongjun, Mr. Sun Zhongqi, Ms. Yan Lifei, Ms. Wang Yuemei, Ms. Shao Lixin, Mr. Wang Bo, Ms. Song Guizhen, Ms. Han Xiuxian, Ms. Fu Yanhua, Ms. Chen Mei and other Dafa practitioners from Gongzhuling City went to Beijing to appeal to the central government, the Jilin Provincial Party Committee, the Siping City Party Committee and the GongZhuling City Party Committee.
Jiang Zemin's followers ordered a persecution of Dafa practitioners who had gone to Beijing. Leaders were threatened with dismissal from their positions and their work units were also implicated. Under the pressure of this Implication Policy, the police department used police vehicles to illegally arrest Dafa practitioners and kept them handcuffed all the way to the detention center even when practitioners had meals or used the restroom. In the detention center, practitioners were persecuted and were illegally sentenced to one year of forced labor without trial.
In September 1999, Ms. Zhang Guilan, Ms. Wang Mingru, and Ms. Wang Xisu, all Dafa practitioners from Fanjiachun of Gongzhuling City were illegally sentenced to one year of forced labor because they practiced Falun Dafa.
In December 1999, Mr. He Futian, a Dafa practitioner from Shizhugou Village of Hejiachun Town, Gongzhuling City was illegally sentenced to one year of forced labor. He was then forced to become destitute and homeless in order to avoid being illegally arrested at home.
In October 1999, the home of practitioner Ms. Zu Dezhen was monitored by a political instructor whose last name was Gao for one week. However, no evidence had been found. He then led some people to illegally search her home and accosted her to the city police department for illegal interrogation. They asked her whether she had been to Beijing. She firmly refused to cooperate with the evil persecution. Finally, the policemen used all kinds of excuses to extort 4,000 Yuan [500 Yuan is the average monthly income for an urban worker in China.] from her family members and then released her.
In June 2000, Dafa practitioners, Mr. Liu Xuezheng, Ms. Zhang Liying, Ms. Zhang Liwen, Ms. Wang Lijun and others from Gongzhuling City went to Beijing to appeal for Dafa. They were sent to Gongzhuling Detention Center for illegal detention for an extended term and persecuted there. Mr. Liu Xuezheng was illegally sentenced to two years of forced labor. Ms. Zhang Liying was illegally sentenced to one year of forced labor.

Such conduct is against government policy because people who are sent to forced labor can't be expelled from their employment.

On the night of the Chinese New Yea's Eve, she shouted "Falun Dafa is good". After 18 days on a hunger strike, she was extremely weak. The policemen in the detention center were afraid that she would pass away during the Chinese New Year, and notified the Gongzhuling City Police Department.

In April 2002, Dafa practitioner Mr. Wang went to Liaoning Province to pick up Dafa truth materials and was arrested. He is now being illegally detained in Fushun City Forced Labor Camp in Liaoning Province and has been tortured in many ways. His righteous thoughts and behavior have strongly shaken the evil forces.

In May 2002, the police in Gongzhuling City illegally arrested Dafa practitioner Ms. Shao Lixin for the 3rd time.

Under the order of the "610 Office", Zhang Fulin, the head of the department political security and other policemen abducted her to Gongzhuling City police department from Shenyang City, Liaoning Province. They put handcuffs and heavy shackles on her and tied her to a chair, guarded by 4-5 policemen. They were waiting to hand her over to their superiors. Bur Ms. Shao used her strong righteous thoughts and stopped the evil persecution.
When her righteous thoughts came out, miracles happened. The handcuffs opened as soon as she had a thought. The ropes were untied when she shook them. The shackles were opened too. She picked up her clothes and walked out of the police station firmly under the eyes of the policemen. Upon getting out of the gate, she saw a very high wall and recalled Teacher's word in Zhuan Falun, "There was an elderly woman in the past who had her feet bound to make them smaller, but she could still jump effortlessly over a wall of two or more meters." As soon as she had that thought, she found a broad road in front of her and she returned to the great current of Fa-rectification. Her righteous thoughts and actions effectively frightened the evil. The police found that she had disappeared and listed her as wanted everywhere. They also tried to use her mother as bait to catch her.
In May, 2002, police from Qinjiatun Police Station abducted Dafa practitioner Ms. Wang Yumei to Gongzhuling City Detention Center because she refused to give up practicing Falun Gong. The police also tried to force her to move her resident registration out of Qinjiatun. Ms Wang went on hunger strike to protest the illegal detention. The police then conducted brutal force-feeding on her and caused her a stomach injury. She could not eat anything as a result. She also had a lung infection and coughed. She went on a hunger strike for 17 days. With Teacher's protection, she broke out of the detention center and rejoined the Fa-rectification.
Just before the "Party 16th National Conference", the "610 Office" and police department started another round of persecution against Dafa practitioners. They arrested many practitioners with all kinds of tactics. They used deceiving methods to break into practitioners' homes in the evening and arrest practitioners. Some practitioners were pulled out of their beds while sleeping. Some were tricked into coming out and then arrested. Some police climbed on top of walls to watch people's homes. Once they found practitioners at home, they would just jumped in and arrest them. Some practitioners were arrested in their work units or on farm fields. Some practitioners were tricked into going to the police station with lies such as 'just want to have a talk' and were then detained. Over 60 practitioners were arrested during that period.
After 11:00pm on October 24, 2002, Ms. Wang Yumei was sleeping. Over 10 policemen broke into her home and pulled her out of her bed. With no shoes and only wearing her underwear on she was thrown into a police vehicle and sent to the "610 Office" Brainwashing session in Gongzhuling City which was actually a jail in a detention cetner. It was cold in October. There were over 30 practitioners arrested just like Ms. Wang. A practitioner from Xiangshui Township was carried out by the police. She refused to eat and drink and had heart disease symptoms. But the police still did not release her. Ms. Wang Yayan was abducted to the brainwashing session from home and was in a coma. Zhao Luanping, the head of "610 Office", was afraid of her death and had to release her.
A female practitioner in Huaide Town of Gongzhuling city was tricked into coning back home from Changchun city. Before she got in her front door, she was abducted and taken to a brainwashing session. Two female practitioners in Daling Township were abducted and forced into the brainwashing session as soon as they got home. A female practitioner's son was going to have a wedding on October 26 but she was abducted and forced to attend the brainwashing session on the evening of October 23. The police tricked practitioner Mr. Li Qing in Qinjiatun and forced him to attend a brainwashing session. His family went to the police station to retrieve him and the police told them that they had no idea where he was. The family then went to the "610 Office" and found out that Mr. Li Qiang was in a detention center. Mr. Li went on hunger strike to protest the illegal detention. As a result, he had stomach bleeding and was released. Dafa practitioner Ms. Song Guizhen was doing temporary work in Changchun city.
The "610 Office" specifically asked her to return to work (she was on a blacklist) and then ordered Li Xibin from Lingxi Police Station and Chief Zhang from the Lingxi Street Committee to force her to attend a brainwashing session. They then searched her workplace and found nothing. She went on a hunger strike to protest the persecution, her heart disease recurred and she went into a coma. Zhao Luanping, the head of "610 Office", was afraid she might die and informed her husband to take her home. The "610 Office" and the Gongzhuling City Post Office punished her financially and threatened to keep her from returning to work if she refused to give up practicing Falun Gong. She had to make a living by doing other work.
In August 2003, the "610 Office" in Gongzhuling City started the 4th brainwashing session and illegally abducted over 20 practitioners and persecuted them. The Railway Station of Gongzhuling City persecuted practitioner Mr. Liu Xuezheng and his wife Ms. Zhang Liying by constraining their personal freedom, cutting off their income sources, and not paying them a full salary (only paying them the minimum cost of living) In 2003, Mr. Liu Xuezheng was laid off and the police from the Henan Police Station went to his home to watch him daily.
1An 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.
2In ancient Chinese feudal society, there was an "implication law", which meant that if one person violated the law, all of his family members and friends would be punished. The punishment ranged from exile to the execution of entire families.
3Practitioners are forced to sit on a small iron bench that is approximately 20 cm (6 inches) tall with their knees tied together. With their hands tied behind their backs or sometimes placed on their knees, they are forced to sit straight up and look straight ahead. They are not allowed to turn their heads, close their eyes, talk to anyone or move at all. Several inmates are assigned to watch over the practitioners and force themáto remain motionless while sitting on the bench. Usually some hard objects are inserted underneath the practitioners' lower legs or ankles to make it harder for them to tolerate this abuse (see illustration on http://www.clearwisdom.net/emh/articles/2001/11/24/16156.html.
