(Clearwisdom.net) According to a Minghui report, Shandong Province began a second large-scale arrest directed at Falun Gong practitioners and implemented a form of martial law. This spread to the railroad system, where officials used despicable means to arrest Falun Gong practitioners.
At the entrance and exit of every railroad station in Shangdong Province, the police set up computers, and on-call officers are present around the clock. Most of these officers came from prisons and labor camps. They force any passenger that they suspect to be a Falun Gong practitioner to show his or her ID. The police check their IDs through a wireless palm computer to see if they are Falun Gong practitioners, and if so they are arrested on the spot.
An investigation confirmed that railroad officers participated in a second wave of arrests of Falun Gong practitioners, which began about ten days ago. This is a major part of a plan by officials in Shandong Province to persecute practitioners. Some of the passengers who took the train from Shangdong Province expressed their indignation at what the CCP was doing.
Beginning on July 20, 1999, when the persecution started, the Secretary of Shandong Province, Wu Guanzheng, followed the Jiang Zemin regime's orders and instituted a brutal persecution of Falun Gong practitioners. Shandong Province became the first to beat practitioners to death, and has been one of the worst provinces in terms of carrying out the persecution. Practitioners Zhao Jinhua and Chen Zixiu were among the first to die in this manner. Partly due to his role in persecuting Falun Gong, Wu Guanzheng became a member of the Standing Committee of the Political Bureau of the CCP.
Officials in Shandong Province use the prison system on a massive scale to persecute Falun Gong practitioners. These concentration camps include Wangcun Forced Labor Camp, Jinan Women's Forced Labor Camp, Jinan City Forced Labor Camp, Zibo Forced Labor Camp, Weifang Forced Labor Camp, Qingdao Forced Labor Camp and Weibei Prison.
