[Nanyang City, Henan Province] Accounts of Persecution Against Dafa Practitioners
1. Dafa practitioner Mr. Wang Tiezhuang, 55 years old, was an official from Nanyang City's Industrial & Commercial Bureau. In 2001, the authorities from Nanyang City had started to set up brainwashing classes and put him into one. Because he persisted in practicing Falun Dafa, he was later sentenced to three years forced labor at Xuchang City's Forced Labor Camp. During a provincial "help and education" meeting held in the labor camp he spoke loudly, "Falun Dafa is Good." His term was thus extended by eight months.
2. Dafa practitioner Ms. Chen Yujing, about 30 years old, was an employee of the No. 2 Machinery Factory in Nanyang City's Oil Field. In October 2000, policemen slapped her in the face, kicked her, verbally abused and physically tortured her during her detention at Nanyang City's No.1 Detention Center, also called the Shangzhuang Detention Center. The policeman who beat her is nicknamed "Branch Luo."
3. Dafa practitioner Ms. Wang Qingge, 55 years old, was a technician from Nanyang City's Pulp Sheet Factory. In October 2000, the same policeman nicknamed "Branch Luo" slapped her in the face, kicked her, verbally abused and physically tortured her while she recited some articles Teacher had written in Nanyang City's No.1 Detention Center (the Shangzhuang Detention Center).

[Fuxin City, Liaoning Province] Local People are Saying, "How Come Such a Good Person Has to Suffer this Mistreatment?"
There are several Dafa practitioners in Fuxin City's Health and Epidemic Prevention Station, all of them are kind and righteous people. They treat others sincerely and compassionately, do their jobs diligently and never haggle over personal interests.
Since Jiang's regime began to persecute Falun Gong in 1999, certain people from the police departments and from different levels of government often went to harrass the practitioners, subjected them to psychological pressure, and attempted to force them to give up their belief in Falun Dafa principle Truth-Compassion-Tolerance.
One such woman Dafa practitioner, about 40 years old, is an associate professor and doctor. Her professional level is recoginized to be excellent and she has certain effects on social events. Toward the end of 2003, lawless policemen abducted her and illegally searched her house. Later she was sent to the city's detention center and detained there for nearly one month. After her release she went to work as usual. Her unit leaders, though, thought that she had a bad effect on their "achievement," thus they created obstacles to prevent her from being hired the next year. They tailored a special "internal retirement policy" for her. She thus she was forced to retire, even though she was not prepared to. This event created a bad atmosphere among local people. They were dissatisfied with what the unit had done and could not understand, asking themselves, "what is wrong with society and why is such a good person being mistreated?"
