1. [Fuxin City, Liaoning Province] Falun Dafa Practitioners in Fuxin City, Illegally Sentenced from 7 to 13 Years in Jail
On September 18, 2002, a site producing Falun Dafa materials in Fuxin City was damaged by police, and the Dafa practitioners at the site were arrested. According to our sources these Dafa practitioners have now been secretly sentenced. Zhang Jie (female) was sentenced to 13 years, Cui Zhilin (male) to 11 years, a male Dafa practitioner named Lu was sentenced to 9 years, and Zhao Hua (male) was sentenced to 7 years in jail. For the moment, they are still being illegally held in the local detention center and have not yet been transferred to the jail.
2. [Nanpi County, Hebei Province] The Dire Situation of Dafa Practitioner Guo Xiurong and Her Family
On April 27, 2003, a female Dafa practitioner Guo Xiurong, who worked at Zhangqitun Elementary School in Zhangqitun Village, Baoguantun Town, Nanpi County in the Changzhou Area of Hebei Province, was arrested at home. Her husband, Liu Peisheng, had already been illegally sentenced to imprisonment for appealing to the government. No one knows whether he is still alive. Her 70-year-old mother and her young daughter were left unattended at home. We appeal to all right-minded people for help with their situation.
3. [Guangzhou City, Guangdong Province] The "610 Office" in Dongshan District, Guangzhou City, Guangdong Province Is Still Persecuting Falun Dafa Practitioners
Several days ago, 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] in Dongshan District, once again requested that some Dafa practitioners should collectively talk about the so-called "experience" [against Dafa]. Police from each police station asked practitioners to register, fill out forms, and sign a guarantee statement and the "agreement to accept re-education assistance". We learned that a similar situation also happened in another area in Guangzhou City. Dafa practitioners have all resisted the persecution.
The telephone number of the "610 Office" in Dongshan District is 86-20-87755888, extension 1909.
Section Head Guo; A female official named Zhou.
Section Head Xu 's cell phone number is 86-13802770454.

4. [Guangzhou City, Guangdong Province] Police in the Baiyun District Detention Center Plotted to Persecute a Teenage Girl who Distributed Falun Dafa Truth-clarifying Materials
Xie Hongying is a 16 year-old girl who had read some of the Dafa books, and knew that Falun Dafa is good. On April 12, 2002, she was illegally arrested when she distributed truth-clarifying flyers with a Dafa practitioner. She was held in the Baiyun District Detention Center in Guangzhou City. Two weeks later, that practitioner used his righteous thoughts to walk out of the detention center after going on a hunger strike to protest. However, because Hongying was young, the police wanted to take this opportunity to persecute her. They illegally refused to release her and forced her to sign a form against her will admitting to mistakes. The police lied about her age, pretending that she was already 18 years old, so that they could escalate the persecution, and threaten other Dafa practitioners.

Baiyun District Police Station in Guangzhou City
Baiyun District Detention Center
5. [Guangzhou City, Guangdong Province] Tianhe Brainwashing Class in Guangzhou City, Guangdong Province Harasses Falun Dafa Practitioners
The Tianhe Brainwashing Class in Guangzhou is located in the Tangdong Area on Guangyuan East Road in Guangzhou City, behind the old building of the Guangzhou Fertilizer Plant. The "610 Office" claimed that they have spent 3 million Yuan building a new three-story new building, with more than ten rooms. Each room is air conditioned with its own bathroom so that Dafa practitioners can be separated for individual persecution. In order to continuously monitor the practitioners, the bathrooms have no door. The brainwashing classes started in September 2002. The "610 Office" forced each work unit in Tianhe District to send the Dafa practitioners, who had not written a 'Guarantee letter', to the Brainwashing Class. Even the retired people were not excluded. The "610 Office" extorted a lot of money, and forced the work units, Neighborhood Community Committees and Dafa practitioners to share the fees. The "610 Office" hired the unemployed people of the Guangzhou Fertilizer Plant and unemployed people from other areas to monitor Dafa practitioners and paid each person 10 Yuan per day. So far, this Brainwashing Class has persecuted several groups of Dafa practitioners. An elderly woman Zhang Ning has been held since last September. Currently, five other Dafa practitioners are being held in the Brainwashing Class. Most of them were arrested while distributing truth-clarifying materials.

7. [Zhengzhou City, Henan Province] Cases of Persecution Against Falun Dafa Practitioners
Thirty-two year old Zhang Ming, Male, was reported to the police in 2001, because he clarified the truth about Falun Dafa to people. He was then illegally sentenced to two years in a forced labor re-education camp. His punishment was illegally extended twice, a half-a-year at a time because he refused to give up the belief in Truthfulness, Compassion and Forbearance and he has not yet been released.
Guo Fengrong, female, 56 years old.
In mid March of 2003, she was arrested by police from 27th District because she distributed Falun Gong truth-clarifying materials. Her whereabouts have been unknown ever since.

He was illegally sentenced to one and a half years of re-education in a forced labor, and is currently being held in the Baimiao Forced Labor Camp in Zhengzhou. According to an investigation, policemen Wang Jikui and Zheng Xi'an illegally interrogated Hua Feng. Two other Dafa practitioners, Sun Haojie and Tian Haishun (from Hebi), were also illegally arrested at their place of residence not long before Hua Feng was arrested. This then led to Hua Feng's arrest.

14. [Shenyang City, Liaoning Province] Zhangshi Reform Center Brainwashing Class Tortures Dafa Practitioners
The "Law Education School" in the Zhangshi Reform Center is actually a brainwashing class where torture is used to try to break steadfast Dafa practitioners. The following practitioners have been held in the brainwashing class:
- Zhang Jie, female, 48 years old, was detained for half a year in Dalian. Because she is firm in her belief in Dafa and did not cooperate with the evil, she was transferred to the Zhangshi Reform Center where she suffered further persecution. She was tortured with sleep deprivation and other physical punishment.
- Zhang Guijun, female, 32 years old, was thrown into the Zhangshi Reform Center brainwashing class and held there for more than 10 days. She is currently on a hunger strike to protest the illegal detention and is suffering from force-feeding.
- Zhang Zhuyu, female, 32 years old, was severely beaten and has lost the ability to walk. She now has to have others support her to walk, and she is very weak.
- Chen Fu, 32 years old, an employee of a metal processing factory.

The above five Dafa practitioners are very steadfast.

Eight to nine people surround one practitioner and beat and punish them in turn. They also subject Dafa practitioners to sleep deprivation 24 hours a day.

17. [Zhejiang Province] Dafa Practitioners in Zhejiang Province Successfully Hold a Fa Conference
In late March, 2003, practitioners from Zhejiang broke through the high-pressure blockade and interference of the evil, and convened a Fa Conference. The conference began with sending forth righteous thoughts collectively. Practitioners exchanged their experiences in coordinating with each other and in improving together as a whole body. Some practitioners reviewed their cultivation in Fa-rectification and talked about their improvements and deficiencies. Some practitioners resolved any confusion in understanding the Fa through exchanging ideas and deepening their understanding of Fa-rectification and enlightenment to the Fa. All participants talked about their understanding, experiences and lessons about how to safeguard the Fa better, and how to rectify the Fa and clarify the truth to save people in this present situation. They formed a clearer, more rational and mature common understanding, and see more clearly our future as Fa-rectification disciples. The Fa Conference lasted five hours and finished successfully with sending forth righteous thoughts.
