[Zhengzhou City, Henan Province] Hunger-Striking Practitioner Ma Xijun is in Critical Condition After 30 Days in the No. 2 Detention Center
Practitioner Ma Xijun, female, over 50 years old, is from Zhengzhou City. At 9:00 a.m. on November 14, 2001, policemen detained her when she distributed truth-clarifying literature. She was unlawfully imprisoned in Zhongyuan's Police Department No.2 Detention Center. She has been on a hunger strike for over 30 days. Another 4 or 5 practitioners have also been on a hunger strike over 10 days. Officials from the "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) force-fed the practitioners, leading to their severe injuries and they are in critical condition. We hope people pay attention to this issue.
[Mudanjiang City, Helongjiang Province] Police Officers' Criminal Acts
The New Year is drawing near. In order to persecute practitioners, the police authorities place Teacher's photographs on the ground at the entrance to railway stations. At the same time, the police have unjustifiably withheld practitioners' identification cards for over two years, which has brought a lot of inconveniences to practitioners.
[Weifang City, Shandong Province] Eliminate the Evil of Weicheng District's "610 Office" with Righteous Thoughts
Weicheng District's "610 Office" in Weifang City, Shandong Province is located on the second floor of Weicheng District's xx Party School. The abusive officials there mentally tormented practitioners. From October 2000 they continuously detained practitioners in brainwashing classes and attempted to force practitioners to give up their righteous beliefs by using all kinds of means. The evil was prevailing there. One day in a dream, I went to the "610 Office" by myself. In another dimension I saw a lot of big or small snakes creeping all over the building. Some snakes had several heads. They began to attack me. I sent out a Falun to eliminate them. I also killed a very big snake in the stairway leading to the second floor. This was my dream.
Afterwards I enlightened to the fact that we should eliminate the evil there. After I shared my opinion with other practitioners, many practitioners went to the vicinity of the xx Party School to send forth righteous thoughts in order to eliminate the evil and help all practitioners detained in the "610 Office" to step out of the evil dens with determined, righteous thoughts. Some practitioners placed a high volume speaker on the top of the building to expose the criminal acts of the lawless officials who have been persecuting practitioners. This righteous act effectively eliminated the evil forces in Weicheng District's "610 Office." After a short while, many practitioners were released.
[Jiamusi City, Heilongjiang Province] Exposing the Evil in Jiamusi City's Forced Labor Camp
Jiamusi City's Forced Labor Camp in Heilongjiang Province is located in the suburban Xigemu area of Jiamusi City. Over 50 practitioners are illegally detained there. Their detention terms ranged from 3 months to 2 years. The oldest practitioner in detention is 62 years old and the youngest is 21. Among them are associate professors and lecturers from universities; government officials and employees; university students, workers, farmers and housewives. Several of them are xx Party members. Some were arrested from their homes without any valid reason. Some were tortured to the point of being emaciated and could not take care of themselves or even walk.
Some officials in the labor camp embezzle "boarding fees." The food is very bad and far from enough. Sometimes there is no vegetable. The police also do not allow the families to send in food. The price of commodities is several times higher than the same item bought on the outside. Some poor practitioners have to use cardboard instead of toilet paper. One tube of toothpaste has to last for a year. They do not discard the water that is used to boil vegetables but keep it for the next meal. The practitioners are compassionate to the police and criminals in the labor camp, always considering others more than themselves. Criminals no longer abuse or beat each other at will.
Practitioners are not allowed to study the Fa or practice Falun Gong exercises in this labor camp. The wardens force practitioners to walk in formation and perform heavy labor. However the practitioners show fortitude and never cooperate with the evil forces. They tried to practice in the labor camp and resisted the forced labor, and went on a hunger strike to protest. Unfortunately, practitioners are often beaten, electrically shocked, handcuffed and tortured. Sometimes the chief warden by the name of He would personally torture practitioners.
In the "strictly managed team," every practitioner is held in solitary confinement. Some criminals were assigned to specially watch them. Practitioners are not allowed to get out of their cells. They are only allowed to go to the bathroom, one by one and are not permitted to talk with each other. The police and criminals watch practitioners around the clock.
The 17 practitioners in the "strictly administrated group" are: Wang Yuhong, Li Shuhua, Men Xiaohua, Yao Kai, Qiu Yuxia, Xie Hui, Liu Yan, Cheng Hanbo, Cui Chang'e, Chu Fengzhen, Wu Dongsheng, Zhao Yaxian, Li Yanmei, Jin Lihong, Xie Lipu, Zhao (first name is unclear).
[Northeast China] The Dafa Truth-clarifying Radio Broadcast Resounds Above The City
On December 23, 2001, the truth-clarifying radio broadcast resounded in the sky above a city in northeast China. The radio broadcaster's ringing voice, along with the Dafa music "Pu Du" effectively shocked the evil. It also showed Master's compassion to people in the world, and showed as well as the hope that practitioners brought to people, to awaken their conscience.
We had put in lots of effort to make the broadcast successfully. Because of the cold weather, sometimes the batteries wouldn't work. We had to contend with the disruptions from the evil forces, such as the squad of police that caused us lots of trouble. However, we conquered all the difficulties with righteous thoughts, righteous belief and righteous behavior. Finally, we succeeded.
We deeply felt the compassion from Master and the greatness of the Fa. We had thought that we just did something for Fa-rectification and eliminating the evil. But during the process we found that we had let go of many attachments, such as the attachment to fear, the attachment of accomplishing a task, anxiety, zealotry, and the competitive mentality. After we were done, every one felt we had been changed into new persons.
[China] Using Righteous Thoughts to Eliminate the Evil Behind Brainwashing Classes
When those practitioners who previously went on a wrong path came back to the Fa-rectification, they would face more severe tribulations. When they first came back home from detention centers everything seemed all right. However shortly after, a police officer would suddenly come to their homes and asked them to write the "rupture statement" (a statement signifying that they would break away from Dafa and renounce Dafa). None of the genuine practitioners wrote the statement. Recently, a brainwashing class was held again at our district. In the eyes of the evil forces, we became the "key persons." When practitioners heard about this, we collectively sent forth righteous thoughts to eliminate the evil that is behind the brainwashing class. Only a few people eventually attended the brainwashing class, which was planned to have dozens of people.
This situation outraged the evil forces. Because the police authorities couldn't find the practitioners who no longer had a job they put more pressure on the practitioners who still had a job. If the practitioners refused to attend the class they would be put on probation and their salary would be suspended. However money, reputation and status mean nothing to genuine practitioners. They acted nobly and above board to rectify all unrighteous things. We came to the realization that our families shouldn't be broken up, simply because we practice the Fa. We Fa-rectification practitioners couldn't accept such arrangement made by the evil forces. Under the great power of righteous thoughts, the brainwashing class was totally bankrupt.
[Hailun City, Heilongjiang Province] Kidnapping of Practitioners
In the middle of December in Hailun City, Heilongjiang Province, the police illegally arrested female practitioner Liu Deqing because she delivered truth-clarifying materials. Li Guiyun (female) was also illegally arrested because the police found Dafa materials at her home. Now they are detained at the local detention center without benefit of law.
[Dalian City, Liaoning Province] Stepping Out of the Detention Center With Righteous Thoughts
I am a practitioner from Dalian City, Liaoning Province. In September 2001, I was arrested and sent to Dalian's Yaojia Detention Center because I clarified the truth to people. Five or six practitioners were locked up in each cell. A prisoner in my cell told me that since September 2001, more than one hundred practitioners had been detained in this cell.
The five of us fellow practitioners refused to cooperate with evil and firmly resisted wearing a prison uniform or recite jail rules. As a result, one of the practitioners was excruciatingly tortured. Afterward we went on a hunger strike and never complied with their demands. Each of us was force-fed by six or seven criminals. The plastic tubes used for force-feeding us injured our nasal passages causing them to bleed. It was so painful that we couldn't fall asleep at night. The next day they continued to force-feed us. The jail doctor told us he would feed us like this every day, as long as we refused to eat. We often silently recited Master's words, "To live with no pursuits, to die with no regrets; all excessive thoughts were extinguished, cultivating Buddha-hood is not difficult."(Hong Yin "Non-existence"). We would never give in to the evil and were determined to safeguard the truth with our lives.
Since we sent forth righteous thoughts, the tubes couldn't be inserted into our noses at all, much less be used to feed us. So the evil took four of us to the hospital for force-feeding. The doctors of the emergency treatment center heard that we were Falun Gong practitioners and that we had been on a hunger strike for eight days. They feared that our life would be endangered if they force-fed us and repeatedly requested to give us a physical check up. The results showed that one of us had a "heart condition;" someone else's blood pressure was "140-160;" another practitioner and I had normal blood pressure, but the heartbeats were as high as 120 beats per minute. When the policemen and the doctor were force-feeding the first two practitioners mentioned above, we unlocked the handcuffs with firm righteous thoughts and walked out of the hospital in our socks.
Later, policemen searched my house and took away my telephone book. Furthermore, there were plainclothes police near my home watching me. I was forced to leave home. The policemen hunted for me everywhere. They went to my mother's home, sister's home and other relatives' homes and wantonly harassed them.
[Youyi County, Heilongjiang Province] Local Police Officers Behave like Bandits
At 3:00 p.m. on September 29, 2001, when female practitioner Wen Fengqing, a dressmaker from Youyi County, Heilongjiang Province, was working at home, the scoundrel Wu Xiangren, from local the "610 Office," together with two policemen rushed into her house and forcibly dragged her out without showing any arrest warrant. At that time, she only wore her thermal underwear and slippers, and even had no time to turn off the electric iron. She was sent to a forced labor camp. (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).
[Fujin City, Heilongjiang Province] Lawless Police Officials and the Record of Their Crimes
Lawless police officers from Jiammusi City illegally arrested and then sent practitioner Wang Lijie and her son Fu Wenbin (38 years old) from Dongrui Village, Yanshan Township of Fujin City to Fujin City's Detention Center. The policemen attempted to force Fu Wenbin to write a so-called "repentance letter" and "renouncing letter" (to give up Dafa and renounce it) and curse Teacher. Fu Wenbin refused to comply. The police instigated prisoners to brutally beat him black and blue in order to force him to write the "repentance letter." His eyes were swollen from the beatings. Mr. Fu's wife doesn't practice Falun Dafa. The lawless policemen illegally detained her, since she helped her husband resist the arrest. A policeman with badge No.054672 forced her to write a "repentance letter" and also curse Teacher. The officers were extremely atrocious.
Seven practitioners have been illegally detained here for a long time. Two of them are male practitioners and five are female. We call on all people who have a sense of justice to pay attention to this situation and help to free them as soon as possible!
[Baoqing County, Heilongjiang Province] The Facts of a County's Police Department Officers Persecution of Practitioners.
Before October 1st practitioners Han Guilian, her older sister and Li Meiyu's mother from Hongxing Village of Baoqing County went to appeal in Beijing. Some vile person reported them to the police. The police from Baoqing County's Police Department took them back and illegally detained them at Baoqing County's No.1 Detention Center. Li Meiyu's mother is over 70 years old. She was released after being unlawfully detained for over 2 months. These lawless policemen also forcibly took practitioner Han Guilan's younger sister away from home. The three sisters have not yet been released. On the evening of December 13, policemen took practitioner Li Meiyu away. She has a 3-year-old child at home.
List of names of the vile persons who participated in persecuting practitioners:
Chief Han from the Political and Security Section of Baoqing County's Police Department. Postal code: 156600.
Qiang Gang from the Political and Security Section of Baoqing County's Police Department.
Liu Wenli from the Political and Security Section of Baoqing County's Police Department.
[Anshan City, Liaoning Province] The Story of Two Sisters, Practitioners Qiu Shihui and Qiu Xinghua
Almost everyone in Qiu Shihui's family practices Falun Gong. Qiu Shihui's husband was illegally sentenced to 2 years of forced labor for practicing Falun Gong. Qiu Shihui herself was forced to leave home with her only several-month-old baby to avoid illegal arrest. Her sister and brother-in-law were successively arrested. Her mother is under house arrest. Her sister walked out of the police department with righteous thoughts and has to live in exile to avoid further persecution.
On December 13, 2001, officers from the Shenli Police Department of Anshan City illegally arrested the two sisters. That same night, the lawless police officers extorted confessions from them by use of excruciatingly painful means. The police also illegally searched their relatives' homes. On the second night we heard that the sisters jumped off from the 4th floor. This was obviously a lie. This situation needs further, detailed investigation.
It is said that the sisters Qiu Shihui and Qiu Xinghua were transferred to the Shuangshan Hospital of Anshan City and are monitored around the clock by 6 policemen. Nobody is allowed to visit them. Their husbands are both illegally detained at Anshan City's Forced Labor Camp. Their young children are left home alone without any care. Up to now, the lawless officers still don't allow the children to see their mothers. The children's freedom is also restricted.
Responsible person: Yao Deguang, director of Anshan City's Shengli Police Department.
Telephone number of the director's office: 011-86-412-2226304.
[Guangzhou City, Guangdong Province] Record of Criminal Acts by People from the City's "Law Education School"
Last year, Guangzhou's "Law Education School" was a place especially set up and dedicated for persecuting Falun Gong practitioners. Most of the practitioners being detained there had been forcibly arrested. Some of them were even surrounded by over a dozen people on the street in the broad daylight and forcibly taken there.
Usually, practitioners being detained here were forced to write the so-called "four letters" including the "guarantee letter," "repentance letter," "renouncing letter" and "criticizing letter." (Letter to give up Dafa, to guarantee never to go to Beijing to appeal for Dafa, to be sorry to ever having practiced Dafa and to criticize the practice). Additionally, the practitioners had to go through a "test period" which usually lasted one to three months. They had to pass through level after level of so-called "check and accept," including their school, work unit performance, the street administrative committee, the district "610 Office" and the municipal "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).
Every practitioner had to pay 3,600 Yuan per month to cover "tuition fees and living expenses." The police also assigned two "companions" (now renamed "assistant teachers") to each practitioner and charged the "assistant teachers" 3,000 Yuan per month for living expenses. If the work unit couldn't afford or didn't want to pay the tuition fee when the practitioner refused to give up cultivation, the case would be "escalated" and the practitioners would be sent to a forced labor camp.
At present, the four practitioners who refused to write the so-called "four letters" are Chen Ruichang from Guangdong Province Radio Station, Peng Lin (female) from Guangzhou Foreign Economy and Trade Company, Xu Ming from Guangdong Arts Normal School, and Wang Xia (female) from Huadu City. They have already been unlawfully detained for 3 to 7 months respectively, and some of them have been sent to forced labor camps without benefit of due process of law.
