1. Authorities at Hailun Detention Center in Heilongjiang Province force the practitioners to lie in a hard bed for a long time and do not allow them to do Dafa exercises. If the practitioners do the exercises, they are tortured or beaten with rigid plastic tubes. Some practitioners' faces turned black and blue from the beating. Some practitioners held a hunger strike and were force-fed. If the practitioners persist in Dafa practice at the time their terms expire, their term would be illegally extended. Some persecutors force the practitioners' families to pressure them to give up Dafa. Then they force the family to mortgage their homes and property for a lot of money and write it over to them. If the practitioners resume their practice of Falun Gong after they leave the labor camp, the perpetrators would not return these properties and would also arrest the practitioner again. Recently, a Dafa practitioner Ms. Guo Limin held a hunger strike and was sent to Hailun County Hospital to be force-fed. She was extremely weak from the torture and was diagnosed with severe heart disease, liver disease and other illnesses. Guo Limin has been detained three times.
2. The lawless authorities at the Xidayingzi Labor Camp in Chaoyang City, Liaoning Province instigate the collaborators [former Falun Gong practitioners who have gone astray due to torture and brainwashing] to torture Dafa practitioners. They deprive practitioners of sleep, physically torture them, force the practitioners to stand with their head against the wall and with their buttocks pointed up; they force the practitioners to recite labor camp policies and beat the practitioners. Some collaborators instigate labor camp instructors to beat newly arrested practitioners. The practitioners are given only steamed buns three times a day, and are under "strict control." The authorities constantly brainwash the practitioners until 1:00 or 2:00 a.m.
Truth and People's Heart
In the fall of 2002, a farmer in northeast China moved corn on a cart. His cart collided with a car. He fell from the cart and broke a vertebra in his lower back. The doctor said he couldn't move for several months. My husband and I went to visit him and told him the truth about Dafa. He completely understood and said he won't ask the driver for money. He recovered quickly and was able to work in the field in less than two months. Every time he sees me he says, "Falun Dafa is good!"
News From China
Since the persecution of Falun Gong began in 1999, officials from "610 Office" in Kaifeng City, Henan Province as well as the legislative, judicial, propaganda and legal offices under its control persecuted thousands of innocent and kind Falun Gong practitioners. They ordered radio stations, TV stations, and newspapers to make up lies and slander Dafa, in cooperation with the central government. They also illegally arrested, incarcerated, imprisoned and sent to labor camp many practitioners. They brutally tortured the practitioners, ransacked their homes, fined them and fired them from their jobs. As a result, many practitioners' families were broken up, and many practitioners were forced to leave home to avoid illegal arrest. Many practitioners' families, friends, colleagues and work units were implicated. The lies poisoned the minds of the people of Kaifeng City.
The net of justice is tightening. Head criminal Jiang Zemin is facing global trials; all perpetrators who took part in the persecution of the innocent will not escape justice. The heavenly principles, rewarding good and punishing evil, controls everything. During the past four years, many disasters happened in China and have become worse and worse. Isn't this a punishment for Jiang and his regime's crimes, and also a warning to the people of China?
