(Australian Broadcasting Company, April 2) Chinese police arrested 18 Falun Gong practitioners, accusing them of being involved in the broadcasting of TV programs that revealed the truth about Falun Dafa on the Changchun Cable TV network. The media portrayed this attempt to clarify the truth as a success for Falun Gong. During the past three years, Jiang's regime has brutally persecuted Falun Gong practitioners. Included in this persecution is the detention of thousands of practitioners in forced labor camps.
(Radio Free Asia, April 1) A female college student from Canada, Christine Loftus, distributed flyers stating the truth about Falun Gong in China. She and her boyfriend distributed over 50 copies of a CD and other materials about Falun Gong. The materials were well received. For this, they were arrested and treated violently by the Chinese police.
(Szines Mai Lap in Hungary, March 29) Over a hundred Falun Dafa practitioners gathered at Freedom Square in front of Hungarian National Television and called upon people to pay attention to Jiang's brutal persecution of Falun Gong practitioners.
Hungary's Magyar Hirlap March 29 report: Falun Gong practitioners held a protest in Budapest on March 28. They also met with the Mayor and went to the Congress to ask the congressmen to join in the international protest. Falun Dafa has become an important part of many Asian people's lives and many Western countries have also realized the benefits of Falun Gong. However, the Chinese police use brutal means to treat the practitioners in China. A lady and her 8-month-old baby were tortured to death at the hands of police in a labor camp.
Latest News From China
Today, 117 people published solemn announcements declaring that all that they have written, said and done under the evil's forced brainwashing and high-pressure persecution that didn't conform to Dafa is completely void. From now on, they will dedicate their lives to making up for the losses they caused to Dafa, clarifying the truth to people and catching up with Teacher's Fa-rectification process. ¡¡
The lawless officials at Shuanghe Female Labor Camp in Qiqihar City forced Dafa practitioners to do slave work for an agricultural chemical factory. Because the chemical powder is very poisonous, many people had symptoms such as nosebleeds, coughing, excessive phlegm and irregular menstrual periods. Practitioners were detained even after their terms had expired. The police also tortured them by beating them, cursing at them, putting them in solitary confinement and using devices like handcuffs, electric batons and metal chairs. Some practitioners were tortured so severely that the flesh around their ankles was torn and tattered.
Leaders of the Beijing Aeronautical Material Research Institute had resisted directives from the 610 office [a bureau specifically created by the Chinese government to persecute Falun Gong. It has absolute power over each level of administration in the Party, as well as over the political and judiciary branches] for a time. Later, under high pressure, they sent Falun Gong practitioners to brainwashing classes one session after another. Eventually, practitioner A left home to avoid cooperating with the evil arrangements. Practitioner B clarified the truth to his colleagues, supervisors, and fellow practitioners' relatives, which cleared up many everyday people's misunderstandings and also let some practitioners who gave up the practice under pressure to gradually understand the truth.

I made up my mind to go to Beijing to participate in Fa-rectification. In October 2001, I decided to go to Tiananmen Square to validate Dafa. I continuously sent forth righteous thoughts on my way to Beijing and got there without any difficulty. Under the Jinshui Bridge and beside the Hua clock, I steadfastly unfurled a Dafa banner and shouted loudly, "Falun Dafa is good!" and "Falun Dafa is righteous!" I returned home on the same day.
On the morning of April 2, I accidentally ended up on a street while it was sealed off. With a glance at the great show of posting a sentry or guard every 3 to 5 feet, I knew that Jiang's motorcade must be expected to pass through soon. So I sent forth righteous thoughts. Seeing the motorcade passing by, I sent forth strong and powerful righteous thoughts to eliminate those evil beings that directly supported him. It was a great chance to rectify the Fa.
Outsider's Comments: Recalling the history of China in the past 50 years, how many political movements have been carried out? All of them are the same. Within one night, "Red Documents (referring to documents passed down from the top authority of the Party)" were passed down rank upon rank through all the hierarchies of the Party and administrative organizations. Millions of people had to study the documents, give a speech and write an essay to openly support the contents of the documents. This whole process has been called "a test that must be passed by everyone." What makes people feel bizarre is that all these "Red Documents" have been taken back later. Then these political movements have been claimed to be a mistake. There has been no exception! The only consequences are the agonies they have caused to the people and to society. They are too numerous to record! They have made this big country of ours become so disreputable.
What is being "reactionary" (also called "anti-movement," which means anti-Party. Any ideas and/or behaviors that deviate from the spirit of the Party will be named as "reactionary." It is a "crime" in Mainland China. The penalty can be years of jail, forced labor and death.)"? We must point out that the term "reactionary" has been solely created by the Xinhua News Agency (the top Chinese Government controlled media in Beijing). Except for the Party, others have rarely used the term. The Party claims that it represents the people, when in fact it actually pays no attention to the peoples' interests. If being against the people is "reactionary," then the Party is the number one "reactionary force." Exposing the evil is a deed of justice without a shred of doubt.
