[Northeast China] Dafa Practitioners Send off Huge Banners Hung on Balloons at the Large Square in Front of the City Government Building
At 8:00 a.m. on May 19, 2002 (it was April 8 according to the Chinese lunar calendar), Dafa practitioners in a city of Northeastern China went to the large square in front of the City government building. They sent forth righteous thoughts and sent off balloons with Dafa streamers attached to celebrate the 10th anniversary of Falun Dafa's introduction to the public by the great and compassionate Master. At 8:20 a.m., two colorful balloons, two meters in diameter, were sent into the air with huge yellow silk banners attached, which were 1.5 meters wide and 13 meters long. The red characters in the Li-style on the yellow background read, "Teacher! We Practitioners Send Our Regards to You," "Celebrating May 13 World Falun Dafa Day," respectively. The balloons ascended in the breeze and the streamers were unfurled. More and more people gathered around and they all knew that May 13 is World Falun Dafa Day. Even the policemen who came there after hearing the news acknowledged this with understanding smiles. Dafa practitioners were full of joy of benefiting from "the vastness of the Buddha graciousness."
At about 2:00 p.m. on the same day, Dafa practitioners also placed a loudspeaker on the floor just beneath 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] to broadcast the truth of Falun Gong. The truth-clarifying broadcast lasted for over 20 minutes, which effectively shocked and frightened the evil.
[China] Vile Persons Who Persecute Dafa Practitioners Take Flight and Leave with Haste after All People Condemn Them
On the night of February 5, 2002, many vile persons rushed into my home and tried to forcibly take my wife to the "610 Office" for interrogation because she made Falun Gong truth-clarifying materials. My wife was firm in resisting the unreasonable requirement from the vile persons. They asked us to lower our voices to avoid alerting the neighbors, which showed that after Dafa practitioners keep on clarifying the truth, the evil dares not tyrannize us at will in broad daylight.
We kept on clarifying the truth to them loudly. One policeman attempted to put handcuffs on my wife. She protested such illegal arrest by hitting the wall. She passed out. Neighbors came and together accused these thugs. My mother came here also and angrily criticized these thugs who were speechless and had to hastily flee the scene.
Later, we studied the Fa together and talked with each other. Then my wife discovered the reason why she was persecuted was that she seldom sent forth righteous thoughts. From now on, we will spend more time studying the Fa and sending forth righteous thoughts to thoroughly eliminate the evils that persecute Dafa and Dafa practitioners.
[Dalian City, Liaoning Province] List of Names of Recently Kidnapped Dafa Practitioners
From around 9:00 p.m. to 11:00 p.m. on April 10, some policemen, including Zhang from the Taoyuan Police Precinct, broke into practitioner couple Mr. Wang Zhongxue and Ms. Zhu Jianghua's home through the window, forcibly took the couple away and ransacked their home. At present, the couple is being held at the Yaojia Detention Center and will be detained for 15 days.
Dafa practitioner Jiang Peiyuan, a 67-year-old, was arrested by persons from the Laohutan Police Precinct and was detained for 15 days.
Officers from the Huabei Road Police Precinct forcibly put 84-year-old Dafa practitioner Mr. Fu Xilin into the Yaojia Detention Center. Being afraid that Mr. Fu might be endangered there due to his old age, a policeman who still has a little conscience sent Mr. Fu back home.
Liu Jin is a 15-year-old practitioner and a grade 3 student from a junior-middle school. Vicious policemen from the Houjiagou Police Precinct waited outside his door. When he opened the door to go to school, they arrested him and sent him to a detention center. They don't even spare a school student.
Practitioner couple Mr. Yu Yonghou and Ms. Wu Hong was duped into going to the Zhuanshan Police Station. They were afterwards sent to a detention center and later on transferred to the Yaojia Detention Center.
Mr. Yin Changgeng is over 50 years old. When police from the Zhongshan Police Station of the Kuiying Police Precinct failed to arrest his wife at their home, they then kidnapped Mr. Yin to the Yaojia Detention Center.
[Wuhan City, Hubei Province] The Third Term of a Brainwashing Class Utilizes Collaborators to Intensify the Persecution
It's said that from May 22, Dafa practitioners in colleges and universities would be arrested to attend the third term of the Miaoshan District's brainwashing class. The detailed methods are as follows: the police will utilize collaborators [former Falun Gong practitioners who have gone astray due to brainwashing and torture] to do the brainwashing work. These collaborators disguised their hypocritical demeanor; they use both soft and tough means trying to lead practitioners to enlighten along an evil path. Enforcers assign eight people -- three policemen, two accompanying persons from a practitioner's work unit and three collaborators - to each and every practitioner in order to force practitioners to write the so-called "Rupture Statement." (This statement declares that practitioners will break from practicing Falun Gong that they will never again associate with other practitioners and will never go to Beijing to appeal for Falun Gong and are sorry to have practiced Falun Gong in the first place). They will also adopt other means, such as depriving practitioners of sleep for a long time. They will continuously brainwash practitioners from 8:00 a.m. to midnight or even to 4:00 a.m. or 5:00 a.m. the next morning.
