[Beijing] Four Practitioners Validate Dafa in Tiananmen Square and Safely Return without Cooperating with the Evil.

On October 13, 2001, four practitioners from a certain city went to Tiananmen Square. With righteous thoughts they successfully arrived at Tiananmen Square. In front of the entrance to Tiananmen Square they unfurled a banner reading, "Falun Dafa is Good," and spoke loudly to the Gods in the universe and all people, "Falun Dafa is Good," "Falun Dafa is the Righteous Fa," "Restore the Reputation of Falun Dafa," "Restore the Reputation of Teacher." This splendid feat shocked the public. Three female practitioners were arrested and detained while one male practitioner walked away safely. During the illegal detention period, the three practitioners did not cooperate with any requirements from the vicious forces. They did not tell their names or addresses. Later they were put into police stations in Beijing. With Teacher's help, when they were sent to Beijing's Detention Center, their health conditions prevented them from being accepted for detention, and the detention center rejected them.

Those three practitioners remained in Beijing for three to four days, until the police took them to a bus station in a suburb and released them. In the meantime, another two female practitioners were also released with them, one of them an elderly practitioner who had been to Beijing to validate Dafa nine times. She was released each time after she went on a hunger strike. The longest time she was on a hunger strike was 21 days. The practitioner enlightened, "The reason we are released is because we do not cooperate with the evil. The evil's persecution of us should not have any effect. No tribulations should entangle us. The practitioners who cooperate with the evil are facing further persecution and tribulations created by demons." So in this way, practitioners successfully escaped from the evil's den, safely returned, and melted back into the current of Fa-rectification.

[Beijing] Two Practitioners Go to Tiananmen and Safely Return on the Same Day

On October 25, 2001, inspired by the story of practitioners stepping forward to validate Dafa in Beijing, two practitioners went to Tiananmen Square with mighty righteous thoughts. They unfurled banners reading, "Falun Dafa is Good," and spoke loudly from their hearts, "Falun Dafa is Good," "Falun Dafa is the Righteous Fa," "Restore the Reputation of Dafa," "Restore the Reputation of Teacher," which effectively suppressed the evil. They safely returned on the same day and went back to the mighty current of Fa-rectification.

[Anhui Province] Practitioners Post Signs to Clarify the Truth.

Practitioners from a city in Anhui Province validated Dafa and provided an opportunity for salvation to the public. Once, they posted a sign reading, "Falun Dafa is Good," on a propaganda bulletin board in front of a large, popular hotel. When the practitioner was posting the slogan there was no one around. But as he turned to leave, someone was standing behind him and looking at him. The practitioner was motionless at first. This guy smiled at the practitioner and watched him leave with admiration. His sense of justice not only protected the practitioner but also left a beautiful future for himself. From this we know people are gradually awakening and are not deceived by the vicious lies anymore. Dafa disciples' clarifying the truth is indeed providing opportunities of salvation to sentient beings.

Practitioners in a city of Anhui Province posted signs reading, "Falun Dafa is Good," in dozens of streets, on telephone booths and in crowded residential areas. The signs read, "Falun Dafa is Unjustly Persecuted," and were applied with self-adhesive tape onto guardrails in shopping centers. Some signs were posted onto buses traveling from the countryside to the city. Some were posted on police cars. In the beginning, some people tore them down, but now fewer people continue to do that. Some signs stay up over a month. Now practitioners are still clarifying the truth to provide the public with an opportunity for salvation. They validate Dafa with more wisdom.

[Liaoning Province] Numerous truth-clarifying flyers appeared in streets of a city in Liaoning Province, which effectively eliminated and suffocated the evil.

[Changchun City, Jilin Province] Practitioners Liu Zhe, Zhao Guifeng, Zhang Yufeng are Transferred to Changchun City's No.3 Detention Center

Rumor has it that practitioners Liu Zhe, Zhao Guifeng, and Zhang Yufeng were transferred to Changchun City's No.3 Detention Center for long-term detention and further persecution. The detention center is located in Sheling/ Shuangyang District/ Changchun City, where the situation is tough. The cells are very damp and the guards are vicious. According to internal resources from the Judicial Department, practitioners will not be sent to other detention centers. The vicious forces will put all practitioners illegally detained into No.3 Detention Center for collective persecution. We hope that all practitioners collectively send forth righteous thoughts to eliminate the vicious arrangement.

[Northeast of China] Dafa Practitioners Fly Giant Balloon with Banners to Clarify the Truth to People


October 27, 2001 was a Saturday. Dafa practitioners in a city in Northeast China attached eleven giant banners to helium-filled balloons and flew them in populated places, including a railway station, the central square, an overpass in a downtown section and at a cultural center. The giant, bright red words "Restore the Reputation of Falun Dafa," "Falun Dafa is Good!" painted on the yellow background attracted a lot of pedestrians who stopped and watched. At the same time, practitioners walked around and sent forth righteous thoughts to eliminate the evil. The shortest time the banners stayed in the air was 40 minutes; the longest was 90 minutes. People expressed admiration at the supernatural wisdom and courage of Dafa practitioners. On the 2nd anniversary of Dafa being labeled as an X religion, "Truthfulness, Compassion and Forbearance" strongly shocked the vicious forces.

There are also a few other stories:

1) Police's Illegal Action in a City

When policemen in the central square saw the big banner hanging from the balloon, they were flustered and exasperated. They arbitrarily caught anyone who was nearby. One person at the scene murmured to himself when he saw the banner, "This time, it will be great." The police immediately took him away. Other people could not help but say, "What kind of world this is? People don't even dare to say anything any more!"

2) Policemen did not care about the pedestrian bystander who was hurt by fire

It was difficult for the police to pull down those huge balloons, and they had a tough time hanging on to them. One ignorant policeman punctured one of the balloons with a lit cigarette. Since the balloon was filled with helium, it ignited immediately. The balloon became a fireball, which burned the police officer's eyebrows and hair. A pedestrian's eyebrows and hair were also burned and his face sustained minor burns. The pedestrian asked the policemen, "What will you do about this?" The vicious policemen told him, "It's OK, just go home and put some ointment on it."

[Shijiazhuang City, Hebei Province] A Dafa Practitioner is Missing

Since last September, female practitioner Li from Shijiazhuang City has been living away from home to escape persecution. On October 23rd she returned home. On October 24th she disappeared. Her whereabouts are unknown.

[Benxi City, Liaoning Province] Displaying Master's Picture at Home gets Dafa Practitioners sent to Labor Camp

1) On January 5, 2001 practitioner Wang Fengqing, her husband and their son-in-law were caught and illegally sent to a labor camp. Policemen Yang Yong and Deng Zhongwei, the head of the Worker Police Station, perpetrated this deed, simply because the practitioners displayed Master's picture at their home. This happened around the time of the CCTV news broadcast entitled, "All practitioners who have been arrested are those who go out to disturb the social order."

2) A practitioner was suspected of accessing the Internet at his work unit. The policemen went to his work unit and checked every computer. Although it was verified that the practitioner did not access the Internet, the police would not give up. They went to the work unit of the practitioner's elder brother who is not a practitioner to confirm whether his elder brother accessed the Internet. Since his brother was implicated in this, his work unit took the key to the computer room away from him.

"If heaven wants to eliminate someone, first it will make him go crazy." The crazy death struggle of the evil forces only shows that the day when the Fa rectifies the human world is coming.

[Changchun City, Jilin Province] Several Dafa Practitioners were Recently Arrested

On the night of October 26, 2001, police personnel took practitioner Wang Tianming away as he was posting materials that clarify the truth of Dafa. Now his whereabouts are unknown.

On October 27, 2001 the police arrested practitioners Xing Guiling and Mao Zengshun. Now their whereabouts are unknown.

[Huairou County, Beijing City] Disclosing the Vicious Deeds at the Huairou Detention Center

In July 2000, I went to Tiananmen Square to validate Dafa. Fifty fellow practitioners including myself who would not give their names were escorted to Huairou County. As soon as we arrived in Huairou County, many policemen swarmed in. They forced us off the bus and made us squat down along the wall. Since we didn't cooperate with them, they started to punch us, kick us and pull out our hair. Some practitioners were pushed down to the wet ground and beaten up. As a result, their bodies became all muddy and wet. Some policemen twisted the practitioners' hands behind their backs and pushed them down. They ordered many male criminals to push us down. Because we didn't tell them our names, the vicious human beings marked numbers on our backs. Then they took us into a room and stripped us of all of our clothes and searched us. They interrogated us separately. They burned all of the clothes, towels and other daily supplies we brought with us. Then they tallied how much money we brought in and forced us to buy the merchandise they sold at much higher prices.

There were two female guards. One was Chu, about 30 years old; the other was about 50 years old. They were vicious. They beat and abused practitioners and yanked their hair out. Using electric batons, they tortured those practitioners who refused to tell their names to the point of death. Some male policemen brutally punched and kicked the female practitioners, which was too cruel to watch. If they found us studying the Fa or practicing the exercises, they would handcuff, shackle us and brutally beat us. After we went on a hunger strike, they beat us even more brutally. They forcibly inserted tubes into our stomachs and fed us with a thick high density salt water mixture.

The above are incidents of the persecution I have personally experienced after I safeguarded the Fa.

[Beijing City] Exposing the Evil of Beijing's Daxing Detention Center

Near the end of year 2000, I went to Tiananmen Square to unfurl a banner. A policeman kicked me to the ground and dragged me into the police wagon. I opened the window and continued to shout, "Falun Dafa is Good" and again unfurled the banner. The policemen punched and kicked me so hard that my mouth was swollen and bleeding. Afterwards I was taken to a Tiananmen police station. They body searched me and made me stand against the wall. In the afternoon I was escorted to the Daxing Detention Center. The policemen transferred us to different places and separately brought us up for trial. They forced us to tell our addresses and names. As I refused to tell them, they didn't allow me to sleep. They took turns watching me and tried the "the carrot and stick" approach on me. After going on a hunger strike for two days I still refused to tell my name and address. A policeman named Tan Tiejun took me to his office and had two other policemen threaten me. They stripped off my clothes and forced me to stand on the cement floor in bare feet. Because I refused to listen to them, they beat me and shocked my hands with an electric baton. As I didn't have the attachment of fear, the electric baton had no effect on me at all and they had to give up. The policemen in this place treated all practitioners in the same, vicious way. Some practitioners were locked in iron cages and suffered numerous incidents of excruciating abuse and torture.

[Shuangcheng City, Heilongjiang Province] Exposing the Evil in Shuangcheng City, Heilongjiang Province

Last April I went to a fellow practitioner's home and someone reported me to the police right away. Seven to eight people from the police department arrived and took us to the No.2 Detention Center. We were detained over 40 days under the excuse of a so-called "assembly." We were physically punished everyday. Our two daily meals consisted of moldy corn bread that was food fit only to be fed to pigs. The only hot food we had was plain cabbage soup, all rotten. We protested with a hunger strike and demanded our immediate release. On the third day of the hunger strike, people in the detention center started to force-feed us with a thick solution of salt and water. From time to time we were cursed and beaten for studying the Fa and practicing the exercises. We hardly had any rest breaks and had to relieve ourselves in the bedpan in the room.

In July, I went to Beijing to validate Dafa. After I returned, policemen from Shuangcheng's police "Dedicated Team" besieged me for over two hours. Officials from my work unit and my family members all gave me great pressure. They forced me to slander and break away from Dafa. They forcibly held my hand to sign "the statement." Afterwards I couldn't stop crying in anguish. On the 8th day after I returned home, a policeman duped me into going down to the police station with the excuse that director Zhang Guofu wanted to talk to me. They also threw me into a detention center with the excuse that I hadn't handed in the 5,000 Yuan "bail money." I told the person who interrogated me my true feelings. A week later, I was released after my family members handed over 2,000 Yuan.

By the end of December, I was again taken to the detention center after I returned from Beijing once again. I started a hunger strike the moment I entered the detention center. The people there tried to give me some unknown drug injections and force-feed me, but I refused to cooperate with them. Nine days later I was released on parole. Ten days later, they again tried to arrest me. I was forced to leave home and now live in exile.

[Xuzhou City, Jiangsu Province] Xuzhou City Practitioners, Please Send Forth Righteous Thoughts to Eradicate the Evil Forces Behind an Evil Performance

On the evening of October 29, 2001 a villainous performance was given in the Oil Pipe Company Club located in the southern suburb of Xuzhou City. Students from the neighboring technical secondary school were forced to watch it. This is another criminal act imposed by the old evil forces on degenerate people in the human world in order to destroy all sentient beings. Some practitioners who knew this sent forth strong righteous thoughts to eradicate the controlling evil forces during the performances, and they also distributed a lot of truth-clarifying materials to the young students after the show.

[Shanghai City] Shanghai Starts to Produce a so-called 'Anti-X Religion' Farce

The morning news broadcast on October 29, 2001 by Shanghai TV station surprised me. I was astonished to hear that Shanghai "X-Religion Prevention & Managing Office" and the Shanghai Movie Company are jointly producing a TV series entitled "Life's Appeal." The author of the play is Shanghai "writer" Ye Xin. The story twists the evil brainwashing cases into stories of so-called saving-people.

The evening Wenhui Newspaper also reported this news. The article explained that the play is praising itself as the first 'anti-X-religion' show in China. The play's plot is ambiguous and leaves one to wonder about what it is against. It seems that the writer has already seen his own guilty conscience.

We call on practitioners all over the world to eradicate the evil forces behind it with righteous thoughts and we also hope all people with a sense of justice condemn this kind of ugly performance through all available channels.
