Police brutality was involved in many of the arrests. A woman in Hebei Province was beaten so severely that she lost her front teeth, her nose was broken, and she passed out. In Yunnan Province, another woman was physically restrained and given unknown drugs that caused hallucinations. Mr. He Lifang died in police custody on July 3, only weeks after his latest arrest.
Eight practitioners talked about how they have applied the principles of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance and how it changed their behavior and thoughts in their daily lives. One artist practitioner realized that the artwork we produce is just like us. To produce good art, she had to first be a good person. That included getting rid of jealousy, a competitive mentality, as well as the attachments to fame and material gain.
Even though their case was returned to the police three times due to insufficient evidence, six Falun Gong practitioners were charged and stood trial for their belief in Truthfulness, Compassion, and Forbearance. Two practitioners were physically abused during interrogation and their lawyers were harassed by the authorities before and during the trial. Sadly, due process violation is the norm for Falun Gong practitioners under persecution in China.

Ms. Wu Peiwen has been arrested and detained five times and sentenced to prison once over the past 20 years.
During these events, practitioners typically demonstrate the exercises, tell people about Falun Gong, and collect signatures from people who wish to condemn the persecution.
