[Hainan Province] Policemen From the Longkunbei Police Precinct Beat Dafa Practitioner Ms. Liang Yulin So Severely That Her Eardrum Ruptured
On the evening of March 8, 2002, when Dafa practitioner Ms. Liang Yulin was having supper with her family, a group of lawless policemen broke into and ransacked her home. They kidnapped Ms. Liang to the Longkunbei Police Precinct for illegal interrogation. The director of the police precinct and his underlings beat her until she was covered with bruises. Her left eardrum ruptured due to the brutal beating. Afterwards, these lawless policemen sent Liang to a brainwashing class to the Xiuying Suburbs in the Haiyuzhong District for further persecution.
[Haikou City, Hainan Province] Dafa Practitioner Ms. Lu Haiying Kidnapped from Home
Before January 1, 2001, a group of policemen from Xinhua District's Longkunbei Police Precinct and Haikou City's Police Department came to the Zhongmao Zhidi Residential Area and tried to kidnap Dafa practitioner Ms. Lu Haiying. Ms. Lu firmly refused to cooperate and didn't open the door. However, the police smashed the burglar-proof door with a big iron hammer and other heavy objects for nearly two hours, and eventually they broke into her home. Then Ms. Lu was tied to a stretcher and forcibly carried away by the police. She was illegally detained at the "Special Cases Group" at Haikou City's Police Department. They used brutal torture to extort a confession from her. At present, Ms. Lu's whereabouts are still unknown. The following are additional details about her:
Ms. Lu Haiying is 33 years old, holder of a Master's degree. She worked at Hainan Province's Airline Company. She is well known for being kind-hearted. Her colleagues respected her for her graciousness and competence. As a model wife and mother, she ran the household and took care of her child. The police made this formerly happy family suffer such tremendous anguish. Ms. Lu's husband is sorrowful whenever he sees their four-year-old daughter, who is crying for her mother all the time.
We hope that all kind-hearted people will pay attention to Ms. Lu Haiying's plight and help her to return to her home and work, for which she showed much devotion.

[China] "Fa-Rectification Arrives Overnight and Magnificent Flowers Bloom Amidst Endless Green "
"Fa-rectification arrives overnight; Magnificent flowers bloom amidst boundless green. Offer salvation to all sentient beings by clarifying the truth; and step on all the tribulations and demons." On "Falun Dafa Day" in a certain city, a lot of colorful flags appeared on lawns and side-streets. Many banners were hung up at a variety of places and countless little posters were seen throughout numerous residential districts. People received flyers that exposed the evil and clarified the truth. More and more people got to know the truth.

[Changchun City, Jilin Province] Jiang Controls Media to Fool the People
According to inside sources, after the Changchun cable television broadcast of Dafa truth-clarifying videos, radio and TV broadcasting departments recently issued the following order: whenever the TV signal shows something other than planned programming, the broadcast should be immediately stopped. All reports of major disasters, unemployed workers and Falun Gong are to be ignored or postponed. Jiang's media is once again at work to fool the people.
[Beijing] 10-meter-long Banner Hung on a Residential Building
On April 2, 2002, practitioners in Beijing hung up a 10-meter long (32 feet) banner on a residential building in the Second Southern Circle area. The white characters on a red background read, "Turning the Falun shocks the heaven and the earth; the great enlightened being came to the human world to offer salvation to people." With this banner, practitioners clarified the truth.
[Shijiazhuang City, Hebei Province] Forced Labor Camp Officials Reward Prisoners with "Earlier Release" For Beating Practitioners
Guards brutally torture Dafa practitioners in Shijiazhuang City's Forced Labor Camp. They beat a male practitioner so badly that his kidneys were damaged. It was heard that this practitioner, about 28 to 29 years old, holds a bachelor degree. He is very kind and was beaten by prisoners incited by guards. In order to brainwash determined practitioners, the guards said, "Those prisoners who brutally beat Falun Gong practitioners will get their detention terms reduced." Therefore, some prisoners beat Dafa practitioners without restraint. Many malicious criminals were released in this illegal way. They went back into society to continue to harm other people.
[Harbin City, Heilongjiang Province] Police Once Again Arrest Dafa Practitioner Mr. Gao Ke and Hold Him at the Taiping Police Precinct
Mr. Gao Ke, a teacher and Falun Dafa practitioner from Harbin City, was arrested because he went to Beijing to appeal for Falun Gong. During his detention at Changlinzi Forced Labor Camp in Harbin City, he went on a hunger strike for 83 days and was released at the end of 2001. On February 8, 2002, Mr. Gao Ke was kidnapped from his home. He went on a 16-day hunger strike at the detention center and was then released. On March 12, 2002, when he was distributing Dafa truth-clarifying materials in the Taiping District of Harbin City, a vile person reported him to the police. Officers from the Weixinglu Precinct in Taiping's Section arrested him. The police officers ordered a locksmith to unlock the door and illegally rushed into Mr. Gao Ke's home, but found the home unoccupied. They searched every corner of the home and then left.
We have recently learned that Mr. Gao Ke was detained at the Taiping Precinct in Harbin City. When Dafa practitioners inquired about his case by telephone, a supervisor of the Political and Security Section who said his last name was Mu didn't tell us anything and said, "This is secret," and, "must talk face to face." His words revealed his fear of exposure.

[Bijie City, Guizhou Province] Thirteen Dafa Practitioners Receive Illegal Jail Sentences of Three to Seven Years
Intermediate People's Court of Bijie City, Guizhou Province illegally sentenced seven Dafa practitioners to three to seven years in jail with trumped-up charges. These seven practitioners have already been illegally detained for about one year.
They are: Zeng Mianzhi (75 years old, a retired employee), Jiang Zuqiong (45 years old, a hotel employee), Wu Kunyao (30 years old, employee of a Chinese Medical hospital), Zhong Xingbing (36 years old, an independent businessman), Li Ping (31 years old, unemployed), Zhang Zhengxiang (37 years old, section chief of a bank), Ding Xibin (61 years old, a retired police department employee). Additionally, another six Dafa practitioners were illegally sent to forced labor camps.
It was reported that this case couldn't be resolved because of lack of evidence and was postponed for about one year, to allow for collection of additional evidence. Now this wrongful case has added another record of perverting the law to the judicial process in Guizhou Province: the highest number of person arrested for distributing Dafa literature --dozens were arrested; the highest number of person sentenced - six to forced labor camp sentences, seven to jail; the heavy sentences - the longest sentence was seven years and the shortest was three years.
Among these 13 Dafa practitioners who were illegally sentenced, three couples were persecuted at the same time. Three families were thus broken up. We know of two couples' stories. After Mr. Zhong Xingbing and his wife were illegally sentenced, they had to leave a one-year-old baby without anyone to care for him. Mr. Zhang Zhengxiang and his wife Li Ping had to leave their eight-year-old child under his parents' care, who have no income.
The lawbreakers who execute the law and participated in this illegal court process were:
Wang Liangren, Chief Justice of the People's Court of Bijie City, Guizhou Province
Huang Weiqiong and Wang Xiaolan, the judges
Tang Chunsheng, the court clerk
Wang Xiangyang, Wu Xueliang and Zhu Hongchun, the "fact-finders" of the People's Prosecutor of Bijie City, Guizhou Province

[Dalian City] Abuse of Dafa Practitioners: Police Officers in Dalian City's Detention Center Tie Dafa Practitioners Down and Subject Them to Daily Force-feeding
At Dalian City's Detention Center, all Dafa practitioners who went on a hunger strike were force-fed. The evil guards ordered prisoners to push down Dafa practitioners and force-fed them a mixture of food to which drugs had been added. After being force-fed, Dafa practitioners were forcibly put on an instrument of torture: they were fixed on the bed with hands and feet cuffed together. They can't move and can't take care of themselves. They suffered this extremely cruel force-feeding every day. Generally, they were subjected to this instrument of torture for about one month.
[Liaoning Province] Liaoning Province Authorities Hold a Meeting to Escalate the Persecution of Falun Gong
Recently, Liaoning Province authorities held a meeting concerning the Changchun television incident and staged a new round of persecution against Dafa practitioners within Liaoning Province.
[Changchun City, Jilin Province] Police Authorities in the Kuancheng District Violently Arrest Citizens
On March 8, 2002, some lawless policemen from Kuancheng District's Songjia Liuying Road Police Precinct went to a Dafa practitioner's home, planning to ransack her home. As the practitioner was away, policemen ransacked her tenant's home in the front yard. They broke the window and took the tenant to the police station. They didn't release him until the morning of March 9. Hearing the shouting of the policemen, a neighbor went out to ask what was happening. The policemen then twisted his arms behind his back.
Policemen from Mengjiaqiao Police Precinct of the Kuancheng Police Department not only sent practitioner Ms. Lin Wenxiang to the Shuangyang Detention Center but also put her husband who isn't a practitioner into a detention center. Their two primary-school-aged daughters were left at home without care.
[Harbin City, Heilongjiang Province] Personnel from Taiping District's Weixing Road Police Precinct Entice Ignorant People with Money
A Dafa practitioner in Harbin City was reported to the police while posting Dafa truth-clarifying material in the residential area of Taiping District's Ermao Clothing Factory. A vicious person went there to visit somebody and reported the practitioner with his cell phone. He even followed the practitioner until police officers arrived. With regard to the reward for reporting Falun Gong practitioners, personnel from Weixing Road Police Precinct claimed that "the government promises 500 Yuan" and would give a further reward if they can find out the location of the truth-clarifying material printing center. A policeman named Wang from the Weixing Road Police Precinct has been actively and rampantly persecuting Falun Gong. He even asked people to call his pager during the night if they can't get through his cellular phone if they wanted to report Dafa practitioners.

[Shuangcheng City, Heilongjiang Province] Dafa Practitioner Yu Xianna's Persecution Experiences
Ms. Yu Xianna is 33 years old. In November 1999, she went to Beijing to validate Dafa and was later put into a prisoner's car and sent to Beijing's Detention Center. Afterwards, she was transferred to the Shuangcheng Detention Center. She was beaten for doing the exercises and put in handcuffs and shackles. She was then transferred to Harbin City's No.2 Detention Center and held there until May 2000.
In August 2000, she went to Beijing to validate Dafa for the second time and was caught at the Changchun City Railway Station. She was later held at Shuangcheng City's Detention Center. During the detention period she was force-fed with high concentrations of salt water. She was held until November 2000 and then released after her family members were extorted 500 Yuan.
[Shuangcheng City, Heilongjiang Province] Doctors in Shuangcheng City's No.2 Detention Center Viciously Torture Dafa Practitioners
Doctor Liu from Shuangcheng City's No.2 Detention Center is a vicious person. He always abuses and tortures Dafa practitioners and hides practitioners' true physical conditions. When force-feeding practitioner Huang Shuzhen, the doctor forcibly snapped Ms. Huang's wrist as she refused to cooperate. Ms. Huang's wrist became swollen and hard to move. A big lump is still there.
Dafa practitioner Ms. He Lirong is 22 years old. On December 29, 2001, according to the Chinese lunar calendar, lawless police officers Zhang Guofu and Jin Wanzhi forcibly put her into a detention center. In order to find some evidence, they dug up the floor in Ms. He's home. Not finding anything, they even took Ms. He's bed apart. Ms. He Lirong staged a hunger strike to protest the illegal detention and lost consciousness on the fifth day. Prison doctor Liu said, "It's only because of hunger, she will not die." Under people's persistent request, Dr. Liu measured Ms. He's blood pressure. Dr. Liu measured three times. He pondered for a while and then said, "Normal blood pressure." People asked why, if Ms. He blood pressure was normal did she faint and vomit blood. Upon hearing this question, Dr. Liu turned around and left. Ms. He Lirong was sent to a hospital and diagnosed as suffering from many serious conditions.
Dafa practitioner Ms. Hong Liping had the symptom of twitching during her hunger strike. Dr. Liu said, "It doesn't matter. She is just pretending." The above are just a few examples of how he abused and neglected Dafa practitioners.
Zhang Guofu, Jin Wanzhi, Wang Mingcai, Jiang Hongwei and some other people 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] in Shuangcheng City persecuted Dafa practitioners and treated human life as if it were not worth a straw. After Dafa practitioner Ms. Jiang Xiuzhen was released from one year of forced labor, the abusive thugs again sent her to Shuangcheng City's No.2 Detention Center. The practitioner has scabies all over the body and was diagnosed with Type "C" hepatitis and emphysema when being checked in a hospital. The personnel not only didn't release the practitioner but also sentenced her to an additional three years of forced labor. At present, all the practitioners held at Shuangcheng City's Detention Center are staging a hunger strike. We hope kind-hearted people all over the world will extend their helping hands.
