1. [Shijiazhuang City, Hebei Province] Female Falun Dafa Practitioner Sent to a Hospital for Emergency Treatment Due to Persecution Received in a Forced Labor Camp
As reported from the Hebei Provincial People's Hospital, on the afternoon of April 9, a female Falun Dafa practitioner was carried from a labor camp to the fourth floor of the surgical section. The practitioner's life was in immediate danger. It wasn't clear why she needed surgery, which had the attention of officials of all ranks. Those who were onsite at the hospital included the labor camp chief and officials from the provincial "610 Office" [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]. Police forces were deployed around the hospital, an apparent attempt to prevent leakage of any information regarding this practitioner. Doctors in the hospital are not optimistic about the practitioner's situation. More details are under investigation.

There are currently six female and two male Falun Dafa practitioners held in the No. 2 Detention Center in Shijiazhuang City, Hebei Province. Four female practitioners are on a hunger strike. Among them a practitioner named Bai Yuzhi was arrested on December 24, 2001. She has been on a hunger strike in protest of the persecution for almost four months. An extended period of liquid injections through tubes has damaged her stomach tissues. As a result she often throws up blood. She is very weak and is in serious condition. Another practitioner, who refused to tell the police her name, has been held for over seven months beyond the detention term. She has been on a hunger strike for over three months and is as worn to a shadow. It isn't even clear if she is still alive. Also on the hunger strike are Wang Yunman and another practitioner whose name isn't known. They have been on the hunger strike for over two months, and both have been subjected to constant brutality during the hunger strike.
We call on kindhearted people to give their attention to these practitioners' suffering.

7. [Hubei Province] Police Frenziedly Capture Falun Dafa Practitioners in Attempt to Cut off the Sources of Falun Dafa Materials
On March 8, police in Hubei Province launched a new round of capturing Falun Dafa practitioners on a large scale. Meanwhile, employees of all TV stations who had previously practiced Falun Gong were discharged for no reason. Currently, in an attempt to cut off the sources of Dafa materials in the Wuhan area, the police are frenziedly searching for Falun Dafa practitioners who can send news to or access Clearwisdom Net. Fellow practitioners with Internet access, please pay particular attention to online security.
8. [Fushun City, Liaoning Province] Extreme Torture Employed to Forcibly "Reform" Falun Dafa Practitioners
Yuan Ming (assumed name), male, 29 years old, has a college-level education. In September 1999, he went to appeal in Beijing and was illegally sentenced to three years' forced labor "re-education" under the false charge of "disturbing social order." In the forced labor camp, he embodied all the good qualities a Falun Dafa practitioner has. In April 2001, he suffered the so-called forced "reforming" conducted by Jiang Yongfeng, head of the police guards, in the Fushun Forced Labor Camp. At first, Jiang instructed others to beat him until he was black and blue all over, and then tied his legs and feet with ropes, put his head downward and left him in that position. They tortured him this way several times, for up to 5 or 6 hours at a time. Sometimes, they pricked his fingers, palms and foot arches with needles. Due to such torture, Yuan Ming's feet became numb, he lost consciousness, and he could not move his toes at all. However, they didn't send him to the hospital for treatment; rather, they did not allow him to sleep for about 9 days. He suffered a lot both physically and spiritually. Since February 7, 2002, Yuan Ming started a hunger strike protesting the illegal detention. It's been over 60 days up to now. Aside from him, many Falun Dafa practitioners (both male and female) in the Fushun Forced Labor Camp are on hunger strikes. Their lives are in great danger. We appeal to all people of justice to pay attention to this. Falun Dafa practitioners, please send forth righteous thoughts after reading this news to eliminate all the evils in the Fushun Forced Labor Camp and help the Falun Dafa practitioners being detained there walk out of the labor camp nobly.
9. [Jilin Province] Where Does the "Guarantee Statement" Come From? Exposing the Crimes in the Jiutai and the Changchun Forced Labor Camps
In the Jiutai Forced Labor Camp, the policemen often try to force Falun Dafa practitioners to read books slandering Dafa and Teacher. If Falun Dafa practitioners refuse to read, they are punished to stand or be shocked by electric cattle prods. One of the Falun Dafa practitioners vomited for two days after the beating. Another Dafa practitioner was shocked with the electric prods for over two hours because the director of the police guards found him reading Teacher's articles. Consequently, both sides of the disciple's neck were injured. One Dafa practitioner was cuffed to the edge of the bed for three days and nights without sleep simply because he (she) was found practicing the exercises. His (Her) face was beaten black and blue.
In the Changchun Forced Labor Camp, several guards beat one Falun Dafa practitioner with electric prods in order to coerce the practitioner to "break from" Dafa. A young girl's limbs were tied to a torture instrument called "Dead Bed" for ten days and nights until she "broke from" Dafa. She had to defecate and urinate on the "bed" during the ten days. After she was released from the "bed," the girl couldn't take care of herself for several days. Such means of torture are common. Four to five traitors often dragged a practitioner to press his "fingerprint" on the so-called "statement" to renounce Falun Gong. On a daily basis, Falun Dafa practitioners are not allowed to sleep at night.
10. [Jiamusi City, Heilongjiang Province] Many Falun Gong Practitioners Have Been Recently Captured
On April 9, after several days of vicious arrangements, under the instruction of criminal police officers, the Jiamusi Public Security Bureau, the Criminal Team, and the Security Bureau launched a large-scale search for Falun Dafa practitioners. Up to now, it is known that Liu Junhua and other Falun Dafa practitioners have been captured. Several days ago, two fellow practitioners were abducted on the streets while distributing CDs containing video programs clarifying the truth about Falun Gong. Two other fellow practitioners who went to their homes were also captured. In some areas, members of every household are interrogated and examined.
On April 7 and 8, rare dust cloud weather occurred in Jiamusi City for the first time. At the time, it was so dark that the ground visibility was limited to about only 60 meters (197 feet). On April 8, there was wet snow mixed with dust and sand. The next day, yellow dust could be seen everywhere: on the ground, on vehicles, etc. And the temperature suddenly dropped several degrees. There was an obvious smell of dust in the air.
11. [Shuangcheng City, Heilongjiang Province] Falun Dafa Practitioner Cao Zhongqin Is Again Illegally Detained and His Family's Only Cow Is Taken Away
Cao Zhongqin is a Falun Dafa practitioner from Xiwang Village of Xiqin Township, Shuangcheng City. He went to Beijing to appeal for a second time on January 17, 2002. The police illegally escorted him back to the Shuangcheng Public Security Bureau and detained him in the No.2 Detention Center. He was released on March 23. Five days later, he was captured and detained again for no reason. Even his family members don't know where he is presently detained.
Before this, the Xiqin Township Government, the Xiqin Township Police Substation, and the Shuangcheng Public Security Bureau often detained and beat him for no reason. The only cow that Cao Zhongqin's family owned was taken away by the local government on February 14, 2002 under the excuse that it served as collateral for the expenses incurred by bringing him back from Beijing. We appeal to people of goodwill to help end such persecution.
12. [Gongan County, Hubei Province] The Evil Is Unable to Advance Any Further Arguments to Justify Itself at the Court of Hubei Gongan County, While Falun Gong Practitioners' Families Speak Justly in Defense of Practitioners
On morning of April 6, 2002, the Court at Gongan County in Hubei Province illegally sentenced Dafa practitioners Ni Youmei and Liu Ying, who were sentenced to three years of imprisonment. When the trial started, many Dafa practitioners went to the court and sat in the visitors' seats while they kept sending forth righteous thoughts to eradicate the evil. During the trial, the two Dafa practitioners were courageous and righteous, and they presented their views vehemently to refute the evil lies. Both Ni Youmei's husband and Liu Ying's elder brother were present to defend for them. When Liu Ying's brother said: "If Liu Ying is illegally sentenced, I will go directly to the Standing Committee of the National People's Congress to appeal for her," the court burst into thunderous applause. During the trial, the evil was always unable to advance any further argument to justify itself, but they still tried to reason fallaciously, and did not listen to the practitioners' families' just defense. They used the means to make up stories and frame to sentence the two Dafa practitioners into three years of imprisonment. When the evil read the written judgment, the two practitioners sent out righteous thoughts together and protested aloud. Their voice was resounding and sonorous, which surpassed the evil's judgment. And their strength could be felt powerfully in the court.
It was said that Ni Youmei's husband had hired a lawyer, but was later told by the court that it was not allowed to hire a lawyer. It can be imagined that under the dictatorship of Jiang, "to administrate the country in the light of the law" is nothing but a fa ade.
13. [Dalian City, Liaoning Province] Dafa Practitioner Wang Minhua from Dalian City's Roundabouts Disappeared After He Went to Beijing to Appeal for Dafa
Fellow practitioner Wang Minhua (from Zhuanghechengshan, Dalain City) went to Beijing to appeal on December 25, 2001 and we have not heard from him since then. Any fellow practitioner who knows about him please furnish further information.
