1. [China] Practitioners in China and Overseas Put More Effort in Studying the Fa, Practicing the Exercises, and Sending Forth Righteous Thoughts
It's getting close to the date that the old evil forces arranged for the head of the evil to visit countries outside of China. More and more practitioners in China and overseas are putting more effort into studying Fa, practicing the exercises, and sending forth the purest righteous thoughts following the time schedule. The righteous thoughts of Dafa practitioners are powerful, and the more tranquil a practitioner's mind, the more power from the cultivated side can be used. Many practitioners also pointed out directly to the old evil forces the necessity of conforming with the Fa rectification, telling them that otherwise they not only won't achieve their goals, but also they will destroy themselves. After doing that, the practitioners found that the effects of sending forth righteous thoughts were better.
After the trip to Germany, Dafa practitioners outside of China put a lot of emphasis on using the opportunity to send forth righteous thoughts at close proximity to eliminate the factors in other dimensions controlling the head of the evil. Although there were more difficulties, practitioners are able to view the issue and plan their activities based on Dafa. They have become firmer, wiser, and more rational. Dafa practitioners in China who heard the news also send forth righteous thoughts more often every day, and they are preparing for the truth-clarifying activities during the period of time that the old evil forces will be using more energy overseas.
2. [Shanghai City] Practitioners Clarify the Truth With Firm Righteous Minds
Currently, some practitioners in Shanghai City firmly clarify the truth with righteous thoughts. The persecutors are scared, and have put more effort in patrolling some of the residential areas. They threaten to send the practitioners away (to detention centers or forced labor camps) immediately. We hope that practitioners in Shanghai use their wisdom and supernormal powers to completely oppose the arrangements of the old evil forces.
3. [Hubei Province] Practitioners in a County Hold an Experience Sharing Conference on May 13
About 50 Dafa practitioners in Hubei Province had an experience sharing conference on the night of May 13, 2002 (World Falun Dafa Day). The conference lasted for over 4 hours in a solemn atmosphere.
The practitioners hung up Teacher's image in the conference room. To begin, the practitioners saluted Teacher's image and reviewed scriptures like Lunyu and True Cultivation and some articles published on Dafa websites. Then 14 practitioners shared their experiences in cultivation. The practitioners shared their experiences in Fa-rectification cultivation, exchanged their understandings, shared stories in clarifying the truth, and discussed the importance of sending forth righteous thoughts. They also discussed the issue of how to do better as one entity.
During the conference, the practitioners sent forth righteous thoughts for 10 minutes every hour to eliminate the factors in other dimensions controlling the head of the evil. After the conference, they went around the city pasting truth-clarifying fliers and telling people about the wonderfulness of Dafa.
4. [Beijing] Practitioner Yang Jiguang Sentenced to 15 Years in Jail
Yang Jiguang is an auditor at the Power Construction Research Institute in Beijing. The local police consider him an "organizer" of Falun Gong. Around 2 AM on January 21, 2001, they pried open the door of his apartment and arrested him forcefully. Yang was then detained in Fangshan District Police Department. We learned recently that Yang was sentenced to 15 years in Jail, and is now being held in Chadian Prison in Tianjin City.
5. [Huludao City, Liaoning Province] Gangtun Police Station in Lianshan District Abduct Practitioners
Around 9 PM on April 14, 2002, Director Wang Ying led 7 police guards from Gangtun Police Station to practitioner Tian Li's home. Without showing their badges, they broke into Tian's home and arrested as she lay in her her bed. They threw her into the police van, without allowing her to put on her clothes or socks. In the process, they also broke the window of Tian's apartment. Practitioners Liu Baoqiu and Xu Zhigang were also abducted to the brainwashing classes in Xingcheng. Two days later, the persecutors illegally sent Tian Li and Liu Baoqiu to Masanjia Forced Labor Camp for 3-year terms. This is the second term in the labor camp for both practitioners.

6. [Jinzhou city, Liaoning Province] Jinzhou Ferroalloy Plant Instigates Primary School Students to Slander Dafa
On May 16, 2002, some staff at the Jinzhou Ferroalloy Plant TV station stopped 5 primary school students and insisted that they slander Dafa in front of the camera. They used the video program to further poison innocent people's minds.
On May 17, Jinzhou Ferroalloy Plant destroyed all the pasted Dafa words and truth-clarifying fliers using the excuse of "cleaning up the environment." At the same time, the plant's TV station aired an article slandering Dafa.

7. [Guangxi Province] A Practitioner Is Abducted Again After Being Released From A Forced Labor Camp
Liang Biyan is a female practitioner in Nanning City, Guangxi Province. For appealing for Falun Gong, Liang was illegally sentenced to 1 year in a forced labor camp. Because she protested using hunger strikes, her term was extended for an extra year. During her two years in the labor camp, Liang was tortured brutally. Although Liang's term was recently over, the persecutors transferred her to Nanning City Detention Center and continue to detain her there.
8. [Wuhan City, Hubei Province] A Collaborators Crimes
Wang Liqiang lives on No. 27 Street in Jiangan District, Wuhan City. He used to practice Falun Gong and participate in making truth-clarifying materials. It is believed that Wang betrayed Dafa on his own initiative in early 2002. He then give a list of practitioners whom he had met when making truth-clarifying materials to the local "610" office. [Note: 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] Because of him, many material sites in Wuhan City were recently destroyed, and many practitioners arrested.
