On September 30 and October 1, over a hundred Falun Dafa banners appeared in the towns of that county.

[Dalian City, Liaoning Province] Practitioner Chen Weiyi Is Tortured at the Dalian Forced Labor Camp
On July 7, 2003, practitioner Chen Weiyi was stopped and reprimanded for helping others make their beds. Chen Weiyi asked the director what was wrong with that. The director took him to his office. Then Chen Weiyi was kept in another room alone, under strict supervision. His hands were cuffed to a metal bed without any quilt or bed sheet, and a security helmet was forced on to his head. Chen Weiyi went on a hunger strike to protest against the persecution. He has been force-fed since the second day of his strike.
Director Liu Zhongke threatened Chen Weiyi with an extension of his jail term. The head of Chen Weiyi's class also tried to coerce him to acknowledge that he was wrong. Chen didn't yield. Eighteen days later, Chen Weiyi was told that he had been transferred to another class, and his handcuffs would be unlocked if he stopped the hunger strike. Hearing this, Chen started to eat. However, only one of his handcuffs was opened, and he was forced to sit on a stool for long periods of time. Fifteen days later, the director asked him to write a statement of guarantee not to break the rules and regulations of the camp. Chen insisted that he was not wrong and refused to write the statement. Later, he was released from strict supervision and transferred to another class.

Falun Dafa practitioners Ms. Zhang Yu'e and Ms. Zhang Fenglan are sisters. One is from Zhangjie Village of Datun Township, Dongming County. The other is from Xiangfuzai of Cao County. By the end of May, police from the Politics & Security Section of the Heze Public Security Bureau, Dongming Public Security Bureau, and Datun Police Substation unlawfully searched their homes, arrested the two sisters, and detained them in the Dongming Detention Center. The police rarely allow their family members to visit them. Their parents are in their 70s, and they have little kids at home as well. Zhan Yu'e has a family business dealing with lumber. Over 10,000 Yuan cash in her closet was taken out and thrown on the floor on the day of illegal search [500 Yuan is the average monthly income for an urban worker in China]. After the police left, her family members found that 5,000 Yuan was missing. The two sisters' family members paid tens of thousands of Yuan in order to have them released. However, the police still didn't release them. The police even filed a lawsuit against them for no reason. It has been reported that they will be put on trial at the end of October or early November.

The "610 Office" in Zhuolu County persecutes Falun Dafa practitioners using various means under the leadership of Director Zhao Xuan and Assistant Director Li Zhiming. Li Zhiming, in particular, employs many vicious means in trying to force practitioners to write so-called "statements of guarantee" to stop practicing Falun Dafa. At the Songhua Brainwashing Class, Li Zhiming swore at and beat up practitioners. Among other forms of cruelty, he has shocked elderly female practitioners with electric prods and punished pregnant women by making them kneel down on the floor.

Li Zhiming's persecution of Falun Dafa practitioners continues today.
[Wuhan City, Hubei Province] Torture Methods Used in Persecuting Falun Dafa Practitioners at the Shizishan Forced Labor Camp for Drug Addicts
Inside the Shizishan Forced Labor Camp, each Falun Dafa practitioner, since the day he or she arrives, is surrounded by two or three former practitioners who "enlightened" along an evil path as a result of brainwashing. Practitioners have no freedom at all. They cannot go to the bathroom when they need to. They are flooded with lies and pressured to write the so-called "Three Statements" [ Created by the "610 Office," the three statements consist of a letter of repentance, a guarantee to never again practice Falun Gong, and a list of names and addresses of all family members, friends and acquaintances who are practitioners]. Whoever refuses to write the statements is forced to write with five or six people forcefully grabbing his hands. If he still doesn't write, drug addicts are instructed to beat him or he is shocked with electric prods. If all these fail, the practitioner is forced to do hard labor beyond his physical endurance. Currently, the forced labor camp has been changed to an all male camp. Female practitioners have been transferred to the Shayang Forced Labor Camp while a new female labor camp is constructed using public funds.

Recently, some street offices, neighborhood committees, police substations and former "610 Offices" once again asked Falun Dafa practitioners to denounce Falun Dafa and to promise that they would not practice, go to appeal in Beijing, or distribute flyers. Otherwise, practitioners are threatened with a salary deduction, brainwashing in the Xinjing Brainwashing Class, forced labor reeducation, and so on. Practitioners are either threatened or "given talks" by several people to write statements against Dafa. The authorities are going through a systematic process to try to undermine the practitioners' beliefs.
