[China] Mainland Practitioners' Suggestion Regarding the Rescue of American Citizen Charles Li
In addition to writing or calling American government officials, we suggest Dafa practitioners should not be limited to doing things on the human side. We should use our divine powers as well.
In today's Fa-rectification period, there are many things beyond everyday people's control, things which the old forces from various high levels had arranged, with the excuse that Dafa practitioners who are having attachments are in need of improvement. The old forces manipulated human beings in the three realms to do it. Thus, we should eliminate the bad substance behind certain people and do everything possible to allow them to position themselves well. It will be very powerful for Dafa practitioners, especially those in close proximity, to collectively send righteous thoughts. In the meantime, we Dafa practitioners in Mainland China should also participate, because the old forces within our own dimensional field are participating in the persecution.
[China] Suggestion from Mainland Practitioners - Send Righteous Thoughts Weekly Towards Labor Camps and Detention Centers that Persecute Practitioners Most Severely
Today, after reading fellow practitioners' suggestion to "Concentrate our strength to eliminate the evil in other dimensions behind detention centers, forced labor camps and prisons in Mainland China" I had exactly the same feeling.
We are one body. Fa-rectification has now moved to this stage. The evil forces have become crazy in this last period. The cruel persecution in some areas has been escalating. In order to reduce losses and persecution, I suggest that we collectively eliminate the evil behind the most abusive forced labor camps and detention centers, including the Masanjia and Tuanhe, weekly. While eliminating the evil forces in other dimensions, may those who cruelly persecute Dafa practitioners receive immediate retribution. In "Suffocate the Evil," Master says, "China's Labor Re-education Camps are dark dens of evil forces. Most of the disciplinary guards there are reincarnated minor ghosts from hell." As a result, we should focus our attention on those places and make use of the mighty power of righteous thoughts to eliminate the evil.

[Benxi City, Liaoning Province] Police in Detention Center Prick Dafa Practitioners' Fingernails
In Benxi City's Detention Center, there is a Dafa practitioner being sentenced to nine years imprisonment that still remains steadfast. Police there act even more madly. Every day, they inhumanly prick a practitioner's flesh under his nails. The practitioner's terrible cries are heart-rending. However, the horrific torture didn't scare the practitioner, who would sacrifice everything for the truth of the universe and future of all sentient beings. These criminals successively expose the cruelty of the police to their family members. Good will be rewarded with good, and evil will be met with evil. It's just a matter of time.
[Jinan City, Shandong Province] Belated News - Dafa Practitioners Ms. Li Xiaofeng and Mr. Wang Dezhong Are Sentenced to Three Years Imprisonment
In 2000, Dafa practitioners Li Xiaofeng and Wang Dezhong were sentenced to three years imprisonment. Li Xiaofeng has done Dafa work since July 20, 1999. She was forced to leave home to avoid the persecution. This kind woman has encouraged a lot of Dafa practitioners in many places throughout Shandong Province to step forward and go to Beijing to safeguard Dafa. She was later arrested after her cell phone was tapped. Her elderly parents are left at home without care.
[Taiyuan City, Shanxi Province] Personnel from Wanbolin District's Police Department Arrest Dafa Practitioners Pei Xubin and Zhang Baojun
Last year, policemen from Wanbolin District's Police Department arrested Dafa practitioners Pei Xubin and Zhang Baojun. At present, the two practitioners' whereabouts are unknown.
[Taiyuan City, Shanxi Province] Xiaodian Detention Center Still Holds a Lot of Dafa Practitioners
During the 16th National Party Congress held last year, Taiyuan City's "610 Office" collaborated with spies from the National Security Bureau and arrested over 30 Dafa practitioners. They held the practitioners in the basement of the National Security Bureau and tortured them with excruciating means. It's said a male Dafa practitioner has been tortured to death, but we are unable to verify this at present. (The "610 Office" is 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.)
Phone number of Xiaodian Detention Center: 86-351-7093585
Shanxi Province's Forced Labor Camp Bureau: Office: 86-351-4291533, 4163533; On-duty room: 86-351-4297168
[Yuzhou City, Henan Province] Facts of the Persecution
Dafa practitioner Mr. Zhang Qi from Yuzhou City, Henan Province, was forced to leave home to avoid persecution a long time ago. On the night of November 14, 2002, he suddenly disappeared. It was not until January 2003 that we learned his whereabouts. He has been illegally detained at Yuzhou City's No.1 Detention Center.
Another Dafa practitioner, Mr. Wang Shucai, was arrested by persons from Fangshan Town's Police Precinct because of distributing truth-clarifying materials and was illegally detained at Yuzhou City's No.1 Detention Center. Wang Shucai has been on a hunger strike for more than three months to resist the persecution. Guards inhumanly force-fed him. Now he is very thin, and his face is distorted from swelling caused by the force-feeding.
Other illegally detained Dafa practitioners are Mr. Zhang Shaofeng, Mr. Zhao Jianying, Ms. Li Meirong, Ms. Zhang Junxia, Mr. Wei Guoduo, Ms. Jiang Xueping, Mr. Xiao Dianqing, Mr. Yan Erxuan, Ms. Wang Xianzhen and Mr. Li Baoyun. Each of them has suffered persecution to different degrees.
[Benxi City, Liaoning Province] Lawless Policemen Intend to Suspend Dafa Practitioners' Retirement Pension
Two retired teachers in Benxi City, Liaoning Province were forced to leave home to avoid arrest because they firmly practiced Falun Dafa. Once, two lawless policemen went to visit the director of the school's party committee and tried to find some clues to the teachers' whereabouts. They asked whether the school still gave these two practitioners a salary. The director told them that the two practitioners had been retired, so why suspend their pension? Furthermore, the retired employee's pension was under the management of an insurance company. The lawless policemen said, "We will inform the insurance company to stop payment of their pension." This is one more example of the Jiang regime's policy against Falun Dafa practitioners that reads, "ruin their reputation, destroy them financially and eliminate them physically.".
[Heilongjiang Province] Hulangezhi Prison Officials Persecute Practitioners
More than ten Dafa practitioners who were illegally sentenced to long-term imprisonment are detained at the Hulangezhi Prison. They are from Wuchang City, Daqing City, Harbin City and Hulan City. Now, lawless policeman Li Mingjun cruelly threatened Dafa practitioner Sun Shaomin to write "three statements," [Practitioners are coerced under brainwashing and torture to write these as proof that they have given up their belief. 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.] otherwise he would torture the practitioner with all despicable means. But the practitioner resisted the persecution with righteous thoughts. He has so far been on a hunger strike for about one week.
