(Clearwisdom.net) With the Olympics drawing near, more incidents of arrests and torture-caused deaths of Falun Gong practitioners are emerging. Thirty-four practitioners were recently arrested. It was reported that they were directly related to a secret document distributed by personnel from the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) Politics and Law Committee.

Insiders divulged that this committee had secretly released a document entitled "Suggestions about Vindicating Society's Stability and Insuring the Safety of the Beijing Olympics." They distributed it to 40 provincial Politics and Law Committees and to the nationwide "Office of Provincial Prevention and Handling of Falun Gong."

The text states that, beginning in March 2008 and lasting through September 2008, a campaign must begin to make it mandatory to "Determine and neutralize conflicts with concentrated energy and manpower," "Tighten the handling of overseas reporters who report on the Olympics in China," and "Tighten the handling of the Internet and short cell phone messages." The document also stressed the need to "Strictly prevent and suppress" Falun Gong.

With the pretext to "Welcoming the Olympics," the persecution of practitioners in Linyi, Shandong Province has intensified.
