    News and Activities from Around the World

    Canada: Former Chinese Official Han Guangsheng Exposes the Chinese Communist Party's Persecution of Falun Gong (Photo)

    ( On August 5, 2005, an English Workshop on the Nine Commentaries on the Communist Party was held at the Bahen Center, University of Toronto. Former Canadian Member of Parliament Mr. Sheila Copps and other government leaders spoke at the workshop. Mr. Han Guangsheng, former Director of Shenyang Judicial Bureau, Liaoning Province, China made his first public appearance and said, "Since 1999, the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) has been persecuting Falun Gong. It is another catastrophe. Many practitioners have been tortured to death and many families torn apart as a result."

    Mr. Han Guangsheng, former Director of Shenyang Judicial Bureau

    According to a Sound of Hope radio report on August 11, Mr. Han left the CCP and quit all his posts in September 2001. He recently renounced the CCP in public and stood up to expose the CCP's evil nature.

    Mr. Han said in his speech, "The CCP claims that the people's interests are above all others. Actually, the CCP's policy is that CCP's interests are above all others, not to mention the Cultural Revolution, and the CCP crushing the democracy movement on June 4, 1989 and killing many unarmed students and others. In 1999, the CCP began persecuting Falun Gong, leading to another catastrophe."

    Mr. Han said, "The CCP set up the Gestapo-like 610 Office at each level, from the central committee to each city committee. It was called 610 because the office was established on June 10, 1999. The head of the 610 Office is Luo Gan, Secretary of the CCP Political and Judiciary Committee. In Shenyang where I lived, the 610 Office was headed by a deputy secretary of the city's CCP committee. The Department of Public Security, Procuratorate, Court, Judiciary Bureau and Security Bureau are all under its control. Each district, county and bureau also follow the 610 Office's orders. In other words, government agencies at each level are under the direction of the CCP's 610 Office. Thus the CCP gets around the constitution and law to persecute Falun Gong. Additionally, all related orders are conveyed by word of mouth without written documents. Tens of thousands of practitioners were sent to labor camps without due process and deprived of freedom. They were subjected to forced brainwashing and abuse. Many people were tortured to death and many families were torn apart."

    Mr. Han said, "I took charge of four labor camps housing approximately 1000 male inmates. After the persecution of Falun Gong was initiated, three of them imprisoned practitioners too, up to 500. The torture methods used in labor camps that I know of include shocking with electric baton with as high as 15,000 volts. A 15-year-old girl was not spared. There were tortures of forced brainwashing, sleep deprivation for as long as three days, and piercing the thighs with needles to force practitioners to give up their belief. Those giving up under pressure were forced to persecute those who persisted in their belief. Practitioners were tortured both physically and mentally. They were forced to do slave labor. Some of the products they made were Christmas trees, small Christmas gifts, and tiny art products, which are mainly for export. Though I tried to protect the practitioners, I could do little."

    Mr. Han said, "The persecution of Falun Gong is economically devastating. The cost for the four labor camps I was in charge of was generally 10 million yuan (approximately 1.5 million Canadian dollars). After the detention of practitioners, construction of new prisons, purchase of broadcasting equipment and TV for brainwashing practitioners and allowances for wards caused the costs to increase about seven to eight million yuan--a 70 to 80% increase. These costs do not include those of the Masanjia Labor Camp, which I was not in charge of. The cost of the police system in the persecution of Falun Gong is the highest, about two times the expense of the judiciary system. This is just the expense of two departments in one city in one year. In the past six years, the total expense of the persecution throughout the country is estimated at dozens of billions to hundreds of billions of yuan (tens of billions of Canadian dollars), or even more."

    Mr. Han said at the end, "A few months ago, The Epoch Times published the Nine Commentaries on the Communist Party, which exposed the CCP's evil nature in depth and led to large scale renunciations of the CCP. The CCP is on the verge of collapse. It is against both man and heaven and will be eliminated."

    United Kingdom: Thought-Provoking "Stories in the Pictures" (Photos)

    ( On the first day of the 59th International Edinburgh Arts Festival, UK Falun Gong practitioners held an open-air concert called "Rescue Orphans of Falun Gong Practitioners." A small female choir sang about "Stories in the Pictures" and had three paintings entitled, "Homeless," "Why?" and "Come Back Daddy," as the background to the stories. A narrator explained the stories in the pictures to the onlookers in detail. Not one of the onlookers lacked a look of sympathy on their faces.

    The following is an English translation of the verses to the songs sung by the choir. Composition and lyrics by UK practitioner Xiong Jun.


    This little girl is called Lele, which means "happiness." Lele's dad was arrested for his belief in Falun Gong a month ago. Today, when Lele comes home from school, she finds her mother has also been taken away, and her home has been sealed by the Communist government. So, Lele has been made homeless.

    Lele comes home with hasty paces
    A person so little has heavy worries,
    Daddy was abducted last month,
    Mother and daughter are now only left with each other's affection.

    Lifting her head, she sees the front door sealed,
    Then it felt like booming thunder rumbling,
    When was mummy arrested?
    Now she is gone, the house is empty.

    Daddy, mummy, where are you?
    Lele is lonely and sad and sorrowful,
    Dad and mum are the best people,
    Truthfulness, Compassion and Tolerance are planted in their hearts.

    Hence, I am homeless and have nowhere to go,
    Wandering through cruel summers and freezing winters,
    When will I ever see the fine day come?
    When can our family be reunited and embrace the spring breeze again?


    This little boy and his mother have been arrested by Chinese police, simply because they practice Falun Gong. Badly beaten, the boy holds back his tears and asks, Why? Why do the policemen beat us?

    Why, why,
    Why do they arrest mum and also arrest me,
    Interrogated by day, compelled by night,
    "Mr." Policeman becomes a monster.
    I only regret myself being young,
    And watch helplessly as mum suffers.

    Why, why,
    What's wrong with mum practicing Falun Gong?
    One person practices, the whole family is happy,
    Everyone gives us the thumbs-up.
    Suddenly the sky changes and catastrophe descends,
    Full of injustice and wrongs but who can I tell?

    Come Back Daddy

    This painting is entitled "Come Back Daddy." The young girl is called Fadu. Her father was arrested by the Communist government and tortured to death, only because he practiced Falun Gong. Fadu's mother was so sad her hair turned white overnight. Since then, Fadu and her mother, who now live in Australia, have traveled around the world calling on kind-hearted people to help end the killing and persecution in China.

    There is a little girl,
    Her name is Fadu.
    She travels the world with her mum,
    Going thousands of miles,
    How blessed she was in the past,
    Loved and protected by both mum and dad.
    The whole family was delighted to obtain the Fa,
    And their happiness was envied by others.

    Suddenly one day,
    Gusts rushed at one's face,
    Daddy was arrested,
    And suffered tortures for no reason.

    Before long news was heard of his death,
    Dad has left the world,
    Mum was sorrowful and her hair turned white,
    Fadu's tears ran dry.

    Mother and daughter wipe away tears,
    Continue their steps on their journey,
    Calling for people of the world,
    To lend a hand and stop the killing.

    In China, thousands of people are incarcerated, tortured and murdered only for practicing Falun Gong and believing in Truthfulness, Compassion and Tolerance. As a result, countless children have lost their parents, their families, and can no longer go to school. Such tragedies have been unfolding for six years, and it's still going on…

    Kind-hearted people, please extend your helping hand, help us to stop this persecution and make sure that the tragedy of children losing their parents does not happen again!


    France: Report on Paris Event Exposing the Truth - Place Felix Eboue (Photos)

    ( Erected in 1867, Fontaine aux Lions (Fountain of the Lions) in Place Félix Eboué is situated in the center of the 12th District of southern Paris, a tranquil and peaceful area with lots of shady greenery. This is also a common place for citizens of the 12th District to take walks. French practitioners planned and held an activity here to introduce Falun Dafa on July 30, 2005.

    Throughout the activity we gave out a large quantity of leaflets to people passing by and also met many citizens who support Falun Gong. Some felt infuriated by the evil persecution, some signed a petition to oppose it, while others asked for more leaflets for their friends and families.

    People sign their names to the petition condemning the persecution

    After finishing reading some French material a lady wanted to know more detailed information. She pointed at a large pile of Chinese Falun Gong leaflets and said, "It's such a shame that I don't understand Chinese!" Then she signed the petition for her entire family.

    After signing the petition an elderly lady asked, "Apart from signing the petition to oppose the persecution, what else can I do for you?" Practitioners told her that she could also write to the media, MPs, and the president, and tell more people about the cruel persecution happening in China. She nodded and said "Continue with your work! Keep it up!"

    There was also a mother and her son at a university who passed by. When they learned about the evil CCP's persecution of kind Falun Gong practitioners, she desperately said, "I will sign your petition right now!" Afterwards she demanded her son to sign as well and said to him, "This is your obligation!"

    Co-incidentally, we also ran into two world-famous top models. Their familiar faces were immediately recognized by westerner practitioners. They were astonished by the persecution. One of them said: "Nowhere else in the world can such a persecution happen." Afterwards, they solemnly signed their names on the petition.


    Durban, South Africa: Truth of Falun Dafa Awakens Durban University (Photo)

    ( From August 1 to August 12, 2005, Falun Dafa practitioners held a two-week-long "Peaceful Journey of Falun Dafa" photo exhibition. To clarify the truth in depth, they also held a seminar entitled, "The Brutal Tortures the Chinese Communist Party Applies on Falun Dafa Practitioners."

    The "Peaceful Journey of Falun Dafa" exhibition consisted of six sections including "Peaceful Journey of Falun Dafa," "Falun Dafa Practitioners Being Forced to do Slave Labor in Manufacturing Export Products," "Falun Dafa in South Africa," "Communist Party Extends Persecution to South Africa," "How the Chinese Communist Party Tortures Falun Dafa Practitioners," and "Global Coalition to Bring Jiang Zemin and his Accomplices to Justice."

    After viewing the photo exhibition, many students said that they learned for the first time that China has committed such severe human rights violations under the cover of a prosperous economy. They couldn't understand how the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) could torture such a group of people who simply persist in practicing "Truthfulness, Compassion, Forbearance." Some students were in tears when they talked about the persecution of Falun Dafa. Some students weren't able to attend the truth-clarification seminar but they visited the photo exhibition and learned about the persecution in China. Some asked when the next seminar would be. The staff members in the library spoke very highly of the exhibition and look forward to seeing our "Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance" art show next year.

    Earlier this year, a similar seminar was held in Durban University. This seminar clarified the truth in more depth about the CCP's persecution of Falun Gong and Falun Gong's peaceful anti-persecution endeavors. After playing the video, "The Real Story of Falun Gong," one Durban University student from China, who is also a Falun Gong practitioner, talked about her own experiences of being jailed in a forced labor camp for one and a half years. She also talked about her new life in South Africa. Another Western practitioner introduced the wide spread of Falun Dafa all over the world, how the CCP persecutes Falun Gong and its cruel torture methods, as well as Falun Gong practitioners' peaceful appeals both in China and overseas in face of this inhuman persecution.

    The audience was shocked to hear of the CCP's cruel tortures. Some students thanked the Falun Gong practitioners for hosting this very meaningful seminar and wanted to try the Falun Gong exercises.

    There are several Chinese students at Durban University. Due to the poison from the CCP propaganda, most of them don't know the truth about the persecution and many refuse to listen to the truth even while living in a free country. Through the photo exhibition, these students had the chance to learn the truth of the persecution, and their mindsets are changing. Two Chinese students attended the seminar. After the seminar, one student who used to have some doubts about the Tiananmen self-immolation incident said that the Falun Gong practitioners' truth clarification was helpful and was awakening more and more people.

    The new semester started on August 1 at Durban University. Students can see the now-familiar Falun Gong practitioners once again doing the exercises in Jubilee Garden.

    Facts of the Persecution

    Savage Abuse of A Practitioner in Her 60's in Zigong Prison, Sichuan Province

    ( The following incidents occurred in Zigong Prison in Sichuan Province.

    In late May 2003, the authorities started to incarcerate Falun Gong practitioners in Zigong Prison. Between July and August 2003, Mr. Zhang Liujun, who is in his 60s, from Qingbai Jiang, was imprisoned there. While the authorities were videotaping everyone, this older man declared that he was practicing "Truthfulness, Compassion, Forbearance," and was therefore innocent. He didn't want them to videotape him as a criminal prisoner. The prison guards restrained Mr. Zhang on the punishment bed for about 20 days. They intimidated this older man, who was cultivating his mind toward compassion, to acknowledge guilt and admit that he deserved to be punished. In or around November 2003, as Mr. Zhang was passing a gate, he clarified the truth to the staff, telling them that Falun Gong practitioners were innocent, that they were treated unjustly, and that Falun Dafa is great. He was again confined to the punishment bed for about a month.

    Because his arms and legs were handcuffed to the metal bed he couldn't avoid the biting mosquitoes. His clothing was drenched with sweat, then dried and became soaked again, again and again. His clothing wasn't washed for three weeks. He was not allowed to wash his face or drink water, and had only a few cold steamed buns each day. During working hours, four or five policemen took turns interrogating him. They forced him to listen to the lies which they themselves didn't even believe, and they forced him to write false information according to their fabricated propaganda so that they could use these documents to get rewards. Six or seven criminal prisoners monitored him in turn. In order to reduce their sentences, these criminal prisoners insulted and tortured him at will.

    If a Dafa practitioner wrote an acknowledgement of guilt, the criminal prisoners could get credit to reduce their sentences. They sought to do this by subjecting the practitioners to severe mental torment, insulting their characters, beating them and threatening them. In particular, they wanted this over 60-year-old man to compile an essay "exposing and criticizing" Falun Gong in order to confuse the public. Principles that Dafa practitioners believe, such as "Good is rewarded with good and evil provokes retribution," they scoffed at. These techniques are what they claim constitute their "reform education."

    It was stated in a government officials' report that this type of prison violence was "reform education" for the Falun Gong practitioners. They claimed that the criminal activities and unjust actions against the practitioners were legitimate. A prison guard whose nickname was "Principal Yang" said it more directly, "Even if we torment or torture one or two of you to death here, it would not impact the officials or the prison. We can just issue a report stating that you died of an accident during work or died of illness."

    The practitioners are strictly forbidden to have any conversation with others in the prison. Each practitioner is closely monitored by three criminal prisoners around the clock. Any move such as a glance, a hand gesture or even just extending one's leg could be berated as Falun Gong practice. From all appearances it looked like the practitioners didn't do much labor, yet they were subjected to wrongful treatment. The purpose was to force the practitioners to follow the prison guards' orders to write false statements defaming Falun Dafa. One official said, "If you don't write this, we won't be selected as a model prison and won't get a bonus." They frequently used the false statements and lies to deceive people.

    In January 2004, Mr. Zhang Liujun, who was severely punished for writing "Falun Dafa is Great!" on the wall and declaring that the practice of Falun Gong was non-criminal, was once again imprisoned. He was handcuffed to the punishment bed for about two months and was monitored by six or seven criminal prisoners. Three or four officers interrogated him in turn every day. They verbally abused him during the daytime, and the criminal prisoners abused him in the evening. One criminal prisoner said that many "real men" feared the punishment bed, yet this over 60-year-old man still didn't collapse after being handcuffed on it for about two months. It looked indeed like Falun Dafa was the righteous Fa! He was really admired!

    In these years since Zigong Prison has incarcerated practitioners, several practitioners have suffered the gross abuse of being handcuffed on the punishment bed. Enduring that long-term, intense torture, the evil has managed to exploit some practitioners' gaps due to their deficient righteous thoughts. Now all the practitioners confined in Zigong Prison solemnly declare to the world and to all the people: "We are determined Dafa disciples. Falun Dafa is Righteous. We declare invalid all the written statements and deeds not reflecting the true facts of Dafa that we may have written or signed with unclear minds under intense persecution. We appeal to everyone: Do not believe any slanderous or false information of any kind against Dafa. In the meantime, we ask that all kind and concerned people pay attention to, condemn, and stop Zigong Prison's brutal persecution toward Dafa practitioners."

    Some of the practitioners who have been held in Zigong Prison include: Zhang Liujun, Zhang Deqing, Zhong Young, Liu Kejin, Fan Chengjun, Guo Baoshan, Liu Xueming, Lin Deming, Xu Changzheng (released), Zhang Zhigang (released), Mr./Ms. Hu, and Mr./Ms. Yan.

    In addition, around May 2004, an over 50-year-old Dafa student (name not yet known) was arrested and taken to the Zi Zhong Detention Center. Refusing to write the three statements, this practitioner was shackled in steel chains to the punishment bed, suffered forced feeding after a hunger strike, and was beaten and verbally abused during the night by the criminal prisoners who were given orders by the prison guards. Fifteen days later this practitioner was sent to a hospital and died.

    Practitioner Mr. Pu Fanwei Tortured to the Verge of Death in Daqing Prison

    ( Within three months, three practitioners were persecuted to death in Daqing Prison, including Xu Jishan, Wang Hongde and Yuan Qingjiang. Although they just passed away recently, the brutality in Daqing Prison still continues. Mr. Pu Fanwei, a 26-year-old practitioner from Gannan County, has been tortured to extreme emaciation, and is in a life-threatening situation. Things have gotten even worse recently. His blood pressure has dropped to 40 over 70, his stools have turned black, he is barely able to breathe, and he often lapses into a coma. In spite of his condition, prison officials refuse to release him and continue to torture him.

    Mr. Pu started to practice Falun Gong when he was a teenager. He always thinks of other people first, and everyone likes him. When Dafa was first persecuted in 1999, 20-year-old Mr. Pu went several times to appeal for the right to practice Falun Dafa. As a result, he was persecuted and detained. So far, he has been detained for four-and-a-half years and is on the verge of death.

    Evil will always receive retribution. In mid-July, the Daqing City Deputy Secretary and the Discipline Committee Director, Si Jiaxiang, who was in charge of persecuting Falun Gong, died in a car accident. He had been implementing Jiang Zemin's policy toward Falun Gong practitioners, "to bankrupt them financially, to defame them politically, and to eliminate them physically." He ignored practitioners' kindness and warnings, which resulted in his death.

    I Witnessed Ms. Gao Rongrong Being Tortured in Longshan Forced Labor Camp

    ( I was illegally detained in the second team of Longshan Forced Labor Camp along with Ms. Gao Rongrong. On May 7, 2004, police guard Tang Yubao destroyed Ms. Gao's face by shocking her with an electric baton. One day before that day, all the guards from the second team suddenly broke into the cells. Tang Yubao ordered all prisoners to the aisle for a meeting. Ms. Gao didn't come out because of her bad health, so several team leaders forced her out. Female guard Liang Zhen shouted, "Handcuff her!" Tang Yubao took an electric baton and rushed at Ms. Gao. He grabbed her hair, pulled her out of the bed, and pushed her into the aisle. Before Ms. Gao was able to get her balance, Tang Yubao started to hit her face from both sides. He then grabbed her by her hair and hit her head on the table and the wall. Practitioner Sun Yan from Dalian Province tried to pull them apart and was also beaten.

    Because Ms. Gao Rongrong was subjected to such severe persecution, her health was so bad that she could not work at hard labor. However, the police guard would not let her rest and forced her to go to the labor site even though she could only sit there. Inmate Bi Shuhua was responsible for watching Ms. Gao. When she saw Ms. Gao talking to other practitioners, she cursed violently for as long as they spoke. This was a torture to Ms. Gao both mentally and physically. Female guard Wang Chunmei said, "Watch and manage her well for me. I'll take responsibility if anything happens." Under her command, Bi Shuhua tried as hard as she could to give Ms. Gao all kinds of trouble. She also pushed and beat Ms. Gao. The guard team leader pretended not to see this at all.

    In Longshan Forced Labor Camp, Tang Yubao has beaten all the detained practitioners who firmly practice Falun Dafa.

    Supplemental Facts Regarding Li Baojie's Death


    Falun Gong practitioner Ms. Li Baojie, 33, suffered severe persecution and died as a result. Her family members cried until their tears ran dry. Her death caused her mother, who is in her 70s, to grieve terribly, leaving her in an emaciated condition after less than three months.

    Ms. Li Baojie was unlawfully arrested and her home was searched and ransacked by authorities on May 25, 2004. She was sent to the Masanjia Forced Labor Camp on August 20, where she was persecuted until she was on the verge of death. She was sent to the First Hospital of Shenyang Medical University for emergency rescue on April 7, 2005. According to the medical examination and available records, she was in a coma when she was admitted to the hospital. She was diagnosed with a lung infection as well as respiratory acidosis. Around six o'clock that evening, her family numbers received a notice from the labor camp that Ms. Li was in critical condition, so they went to the Shenyang Medical University. The doctor requested that she undergo emergency surgery immediately and demanded that family members and the labor camp sign for the surgery.

    At that time, the Team Leader, Xie, and other persons from the Masanjia Forced Labor Camp were at the site. Xie refused to sign and claimed that he needed to ask for his supervisor's instructions. However, Baojie's family members could not wait longer for the labor camp officials to sign, as Li Baojie's life was in danger.

    At 3:00 a.m. on April 8, 2005, Team Leader Xie of the Masanjia Forced Labor Camp jeopardized Ms. Li's life by retiring to his police car to sleep. As a result, Ms. Li Baojie's family members also left the hospital.

    At 6:00 a.m. on April 8, 2005, Li Baojie called to request to see her husband Pan Xueshu for the last time. After seeing her, it was obvious that she did not sleep for a whole night, and her health was extremely weak. The situation was very urgent.

    Pan Xueshu asked Xie of the Masanjia Forced Labor Camp and the female commissar many times to sign for permission to perform the life-saving operation on Li Baojie, but he was ruthlessly refused.

    Later, the Masanjia Forced Labor Camp decided that the family members should take Li Baojie home. To save his wife, Pan Xueshu rented an ambulance with an oxygen supply and took his wife to the Second Peoples Hospital of Panjin City for treatment.

    Li Baojie passed away on the road ten kilometers away from her home. Her husband Pan Xueshu shouted desperately: "Baojie! Please wake up! You should not go!" Her mother cried out: "My child! Please wake up!"

    All of the people present burst into tears. Li Baojie's sister was in a deep shock at that time. Her family members could not accept the sudden loss. The death of Li Baojie was directly caused by tortures administered by authorities from the Masanjia Forced Labor Camp and related policemen and guards. It was reported that the Masanjia Forced Labor Camp reimbursed the family members 4000 yuan as a financial aid.

    Notes: On the evening of May 25, 2005, Zhou Laixing, head of the 610 Office at Panjin City Police Station, led a team to illegally search and loot Li Baojie and Pan Xueshu's house. The police stole their spousal fund of 20,000 yuan in cash. This money was scraped together after a whole life's work by Pan Xueshu's parents. The items that were illegally confiscated include a suit with 500 yuan inside, a red one-piece dress, 2 sports suits, one quilt, one red carpet, one red suitcase with clothes inside, two new bed sheets, two pairs of sports shoes, two dining tables, one rice cooker, one spatula, one bag of rice, two aluminum kettles, one washtub, one red bucket, one thermos flask, a brand new bike, the ID card of Li Baojie, the receipt for a motorcycle, and a cabinet.

More than two years later they still have not received any money back from the police.

    Four Older Practitioners Die From Persecution in Hebei, Hunan and Jilin Provinces (Photo)

    ( Mr. Di Zhenjin, 78, was a Falun Gong practitioner in Kuancheng County, Hebei Province. He had previously suffered a stroke and was very frail in health. He quickly regained his health after practicing Falun Gong in March 1997. He did not feel tired after working, and felt like a young man again. After the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) and Jiang's regime started persecuting Falun Gong on July 20, 1999, the police often broke into and ransacked his home, confiscating Falun Gong books and harassing him and his family. Di Zhenjin persisted in clarifying the truth to people and validating the Fa. In May 2002, around a dozen deputies from the Kuancheng County Public Security Bureau and the Tangdaohe Township Police Station suddenly broke into his house, ransacked the rooms, seized the books and truth clarification materials, and arrested Zhenjin, taking him to the township police station for interrogations. They detained him at the detention center afterwards for further torture. Zhenjin suffered severe mental duress, followed by abdominal pain and blood in his stools. Under constant harassment, surveillance and coercion, he died on July 21, 2005.

    Zhou Shuying

    Ms. Zhou Shuying, 84, lived at #124 building, The Jiangdong District 165th Hospital of Hengyang City, Hunan Province. She suffered from seven ailments, including high blood pressure and heart disease, among other symptoms. After she started practicing Falun Gong in June 1998, all of her illnesses disappeared. After the evil CCP and Jiang's regime started persecuting Falun Gong in July 1999, she and her daughter went to Beijing to appeal against the persecution and to tell the truth in October 2000. They were abducted by the police while they spoke out for Falun Gong on Tiananmen Square. After they were released her daughter was abducted and taken again to the brainwashing class for an entire year, and Ms. Zhou lost her cultivation environment. Later, on many occasions, her daughter was arrested and taken to the local detention center, and the 610 Office officials at the Zhuhui District Police Station ransacked her home and confiscated all her Dafa books, lectures and practice tapes. Under these ordeals and high pressure persecution tactics her old ailments recurred. She died on May 12, 2003.

    Mr. Dong Jinchang, 60, was a Falun Gong practitioner from Yumin Village, Yushu City, Jilin Province. The local officials arrested him back in September 2002, and savagely beat him at the local police station that day. He lost consciousness several times during the beating, and was later transferred to the Yushu City Detention Center. He frequently suffered brutal tortures at the detention center. He was released only after his physical condition deteriorated severely and the center officials were afraid that they would be held accountable. He never regained his health after returning home, and died around mid-July 2005.

    Mr. Zhang Zhiyong, 69, was from Nanwazhai Village, Laishui County, Hebei Province. After the CCP started persecuting Falun Gong in 1999, the county, township and local brigade officials abducted his daughter and son, both Falun Gong practitioners. On top of that, those officials often came to his house to harass and terrorize him. Unable to cope with such peril, he died in September 2000.

    Five Practitioners from Hebei, Liaoning, and Sichuan Provinces Die Due to Persecution of Falun Dafa

    ( Ms. Liu Huamiao, 57, was a Falun Dafa practitioner from Xinji City, Hebei Province. Before practicing Falun Dafa, she had severe rheumatism and could not take care of herself. In 1999, three months after she started practicing Falun Dafa, she gained a new life. When the persecution of Falun Dafa began, she went to Beijing to defend her practice of Falun Dafa and was detained for over fifteen days. Due to the long-term constant harassment and persecution, her previous illness recurred. She died in spring of 2004.

    Ms. Gu Xiaopin, 56, was a practitioner from Xinji City, Hebei Province. Before practicing Falun Dafa, she had severe heart disease. After she learned Falun Dafa in 1997, she became very healthy and gained a new life. After the Party started the official crack down on Falun Dafa on July 20, 1999, her previous illness returned. She died in March 2003.

    Mr. Shi Peifeng, 21, lived in the Youzhu Community on Xindong Street in the Dadong District of Shenyang City, Liaoning Province. He started practicing Falun Dafa in January 1998. He had kidney disease, which improved greatly after he practiced Falun Dafa. After he went to Beijing to appeal on November 20, 1999, he was illegally taken to the Longshan Brainwashing Center and later transferred to the Fifth Detention Center for further persecution. He was released after his parents were forced to pay a fine. Under the long-term persecution, his practice environment was severely sabotaged. In August 2003, his kidney disease returned. He died on September 19, 2004.

    Mr. Xu Ning and his wife Mrs. Yu Shengzhen were from Suining, Sichuan Province. They learned Falun Dafa in September 1997. They benefited from Falun Dafa immensely and were both very healthy. Under the Party's brutal persecution, the couple, both over 80, could not withstand the long-term harassment and intimidation and finally gave up practicing Falun Dafa. Their previous sicknesses returned. They died in August 2004 and February 2004, respectively.



    Health Benefits of Falun Dafa

    Tens of Thousands in Medical Expenses Saved -- Femur Necrosis Cured by Falun Dafa

    ( I'm a peasant in Li County, Hebei Province, and am now in my seventies. I previously had many illnesses, including stomach problems, dizziness, and a bad heart. In particular, I had femur necrosis, which made it difficult for me to move around, sit, or lie down. When I slept, I had to slowly sit up in order to turn. I was in excruciating pain. I felt like I would rather die than live. I suffered a lot.

    The doctor said that femur necrosis is a non-fatal form of cancer, and the only treatment is a hip replacement operation. The domestic replacements cost twenty thousand yuan, and the imported ones cost more than twenty thousand yuan. Including hospitalization, the total cost would be about fifty to sixty thousand yuan. I told the doctor jokingly, "I'm a peasant in my seventies. Am I still worth that much money?"

    I thought and thought. I didn't have the money for an operation. So I took a lot of medicine, but the effect was not good at all. One of our villagers told me, "What about practicing Falun Gong? I've been practicing Falun Gong for almost 10 years, and all my illnesses have disappeared. I've not taken any medicine so far, and I'm almost 70, too. See how good my health is!" After listening to what he said, I didn't quite believe him at the time. I thought to myself, "If it is so good to practice Falun Gong, why does the central government make such a big effort to suppress it?"

    When the Nine Commentaries on the Communist Party was published at the end of last year, I carefully went through it. The Nine Commentaries very systematically evaluates the CCP and offers a complete analysis and revelation of the CCP's nature and origin, the party culture, its tyrannical regime and history of killing, its gangster nature, and its malicious opposition of the benevolent characteristic of the universe. It made me see clearly the party's evil nature. Consequently, I decided to withdraw from the CCP.

    Then I thought about my fellow villager's words. In January of 2005, I sincerely took up the practice of Falun Gong. I've read through Zhuan Falun and other lectures by Teacher Li. After repeatedly reading Zhuan Falun, I understood the purpose of living in the world as a human being. I will follow the Fa-principles of "Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance" and act accordingly.

    Not long after I started studying the Fa and practicing the exercises, all my illnesses disappeared. I no longer have any soreness or pain anywhere in my body. I'm able to move about freely. After being examined at a hospital, the doctors confirmed that the femur necrosis had completely disappeared. Now I don't have difficulty when I ride on my bicycle, even for long distances. I thank Teacher and I thank Falun Dafa!

    People Awaken to the Truth

    People Obtain Dafa After Learning the Truth


    A Large Number of New Practitioners in a City in Shandong Province are Very Happy to Obtain Zhuan Falun

    Recently, there have been many people who happily learned Falun Dafa. A few days ago, these new practitioners finally received 70 copies of the long-awaited, beautifully printed book, Zhuan Falun. A fellow practitioner said, "These days common people are reading the Nine Commentaries and quitting the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) after learning the true nature of its wickedness. At the same time, they are happy to obtain this precious book to begin their cultivation practice."

    Heart is Anchored After Practicing Falun Dafa

    By a new practitioner from Lushuihe, Susong County, Jilin Province

    I felt ill around the Spring Festival time this year. My neighbor who practices Falun Dafa told me to silently repeat the phrases, "Falun Dafa is good," and "Truth, Compassion, Forbearance is good." I followed her advice. After awhile my body shook and I felt very good afterward. I decided to practice Falun Gong because the practice was so good.

    I used to drink wine with meals three times a day, I smoked and I wasted my time doing nothing. After I began the practice, I stopped drinking and smoking and my health improved substantially. Nowadays, I am high-spirited, happy and light-hearted. Many things about life that I didn't previously understand are now suddenly clear to me. My spouse also began practicing Falun Gong after witnessing the changes in me.

    The Nine Commentaries Are Deep in People's Hearts


    The Nine Commentaries are Deep in People's Hearts

    My husband works in a government position. One day a female official boasted, "My daughter and I are both Communist Party members." A coworker said then, "Don't you have a 'plan B' for yourself?"

    My son liked to write essays. His teacher asked his class to pick one subject from over a hundred given topics. One student immediately said, "Teacher, how can we pick from so many subjects? Let's write about the Nine Commentaries."

    When I chat with people, I find that many people have broken the Internet blockade and know the truth about the persecution and related matters.

    Media Coverage

    Diario de Ferrol (a Spanish Daily Newspaper in Ferrol, Spain) Published an Article about Falun Gong and the Persecution in China

    This millenary oriental art of relaxation is being persecuted by the Chinese government

    During the professional Finnish model's visit to Ferrol as the international spokesperson for a cosmetic brand, she took the opportunity to raise awareness about the situation of over 70 million Chinese people that are being persecuted in their country for practicing a discipline similar to yoga

    Redacción / Ferrol

    Three words summarize the philosophy of Falun Dafa or Falun Gong: Truthfulness, Compassion and Tolerance, principles that in some way synthesize the conceptual aspect of similar practices such as yoga, for example. Falun Dafa, a millenary practice that surged in China and started to become popular in the country in 1992 thanks to Master Li Hongzhi, who publicized one of the various self-cultivation disciplines of mind and body which just a few years ago started to come from the Orient and which are generically grouped under the name of qigong.

    Something so healthy and inoffensive, established already in more than 70 countries around the world, was all of a sudden prohibited from one day to the next almost 6 years ago by the Chinese government, then presided by Jiang Zemin. The reasons for this persecution, according to organizations that defend this large collective, point to the harsh control that the dictatorship exerts over everything that does not follow the regime's principles. In barely six years, the number of people murdered, tortured to death, persecuted and incarcerated has not ceased to grow, a circumstance that has led the NGO Global Mission to Rescue to defend and call out for the rights of so many Chinese people.

    One of its members is the ex-model Pia-Maria I. Sandas, international spokesperson for a cosmetic label, who in her visit to Ferrol also took the opportunity to make known the situation that these people are in, included among which is one of her good friends, Jane Dai, -on the photo - whose husband was murdered for committing the "terrible crime" of simply practicing an Art that relaxes.

    161 People Declare that their Words and Deeds Under Forced Brainwashing are Null and Void
    A Total of 282953 Declarations Have Been Published To Date

    ( A "solemn declaration" is a person's public statement declaring to the world that whatever he or she has done or said under duress or deception that was against Falun Dafa is null and void. Most of these statements have come from Falun Dafa practitioners in China who wished to express regret that, in the face of physical torture and brainwashing, they had signed documents renouncing Dafa and guaranteeing not to practice again. Also, as more and more people in China learn the truth about how they have been deceived and lied to by the Jiang regime, many non-practitioners are also submitting "solemn declarations."

    Here are some examples of the Solemn Declarations:

    Facts of the Persecution

    1. The Persecution Against Practitioners Mr. Jiang Nianxiang and His Wife Xing Yuzhen

    Falun Gong practitioners Mr. Jiang Nianxiang and his wife Xing Yuzhen from Daqing City, Heilongjiang Province, have repeatedly suffered from China's persecution because they are determined to practice Falun Gong. Mrs. Jiang had been subjected to gruesome tortures while in detention and was in mortal danger several times before she was finally granted a medical bail. She is very frail right now and has no source of income. Her relatives are looking after her. Her husband is illegally imprisoned in Daqing Prison. Mrs. Jiang was not allowed to visit her husband. Daqing Prison is blocking all information about Mr. Jiang so his current condition is unknown. Mr. Jiang's family and friends have written an appeal letter, asking the prosecutor to bring his torturers to justice and immediately return the couple's confiscated money and property.

    2. Crimes Against Practitioners Illegally Detained in Liaoning Province Women's Prison

    Liaoning Province Women's Prison was formerly known as Dabei Prison in Shenyang, Liaoning Province. Its division head Guo Haiyan (female) instigated prison inmates to beat practitioner Ms. Xu Qingfang until her body was covered with wounds and bruises and she had black eyes. In the middle of the summer, Guo Haiyan ordered prison inmates Bi Suyuan and Wang Xia (both female) to place a mask, a cotton snow hat and a cotton overcoat on practitioner Ms. Jin Cuixiang. She then had five female prison inmates beat her all at once before shocking her with electric batons. Prison inmates Cui Yanru and Hou Yan (both female) repeatedly beat up practitioner Ms. Zhang Wei and deprived her of sleep. They also wrote messages slandering Teacher and Falun Gong on the bottoms of her feet. The repeated cruel tortures eventually caused her pervious illnesses to re-surface and caused her to suffer a mental collapse. Practitioner Ms. Liu Man is forced to perform hard labor during the day and mop the floor and the corridors at night. Lately, the prison inmates have been depriving her of sleep. Practitioner Ms. Liu Meirong was forced to stand in the center of a small circle of prison guards for a long time. She passed out repeatedly but was forced to stand up again as soon as she was brought back to consciousness. Practitioner Ms. Li Guixia refused to comply with the demands of the torturers. She was brought to a small, windowless shack where a disciplinary staff member, Zhao Xiumei (female), subjected her to electric shock torture. Zhao also ordered prison inmates to repeatedly pour cold water on Ms. Li and beat her with sharp objects. Practitioner Ms. Liu Suzhi refused to memorize the regulations for the prison inmates, so she was deprived of sleep. She was also denied any visits by her family or relatives. The torturers made her sit on a small and low bench for a long duration. She was subjected to electric shocks and was deprived of the use of the toilet. Practitioner Ms. Ding Lihua went on a hunger strike to protest the persecution against her.

    3. Additional Crimes Committed by the Police Guards in Shayang Forced Labor Camp in Hubei Province

    Lu Wenjun is the captain of the police guards at Shayang Forced Labor Camp in Hubei Province. He has been secretly giving meager food rations to practitioners illegally detained there. Lu Wenjun is the one of the primary people who persecuted practitioner Mr. Zheng Dejun. The Ninth Squadron at Shayang Forced Labor Camp occupies the east and west corridors of the building. The Intensive Torture Team of the Ninth Squadron is stationed in the east corridor and is currently watching practitioner Mr. Qiao Zuoquan, who is from Jingmen. The Intensive Torture Team in the west corridor is now torturing the following practitioners: Mr. Zhang Long from Shiyan, Mr. Wang Yuanhong from Xiangfan, and Mr. Zhou Yuantao from Xiangfan. Of all the practitioners detained in the west corridor, Mr. Zheng Dejun from Yichang, Mr. Peng Hongdao from Chibi and Mr. Zhu from Zhongxiang face the most attention and torture. Mr. Zheng Dejun has never once given in, and he has been subjected to the mind-grinding torture of solitary confinement (1). The prison police tortured him with many abhorrent torture methods, such as total sleep deprivation (2). For one full month, they forced him to watch video programs that attack Falun Gong during the daytime and forced him to listen to audio recordings of the prison regulations at night. Although they failed to make Mr. Zheng Dejun give in, the prison inmates who assisted in the torture collapsed. Mr. Zheng is in a terrible state right now. The camp is planning to extend his prison term.

    4. Masanjia Forced Labor Camp Continues to Torture Practitioners

    Wang Xiaofeng is the captain of the First Squadron of Masanjia Forced Labor Camp. Huang Haiyan and Cui Hong were the prison guards from the Third and Fourth Divisions respectively. Liu Hui is a prison guard from the Fifth Division. These four women are most active in torturing practitioners. They have repeatedly extended the prison terms of the following practitioners: Ms. Sheng Lixia, Ms. Liu Xiuyan, Ms. Zhu Yun, Ms. Geng Yulan, Ms. Song Ailian, Ms. Zhang Xiumin, Ms. Gao Fuling, and Ms. Wang Huinan, and have subjected these practitioners to the cruel mental and physical torture of solitary confinement. They don't think twice about torturing those extremely frail practitioners that have been on hunger strikes to protest the illegal detention and tortures. These practitioners were allowed only three trips to the bathroom per day but were not allowed to wash or take a shower. During their solitary confinement, they were also subjected to high-volume noise. Each solitary confinement lasted 10, 15, or 30 days, and sometimes even months. For those practitioners who went on hunger strikes to protest during their solitary confinements, the prison guards threw them on the cold concrete floor and stepped on their limbs before torturing them with abusive force-feeding. They even added a large quantity of salt and drugs to the food (3).

    1. Solitary confinement is a punishment in which a person is denied contact with any other persons, excluding guards. The effects of this isolation are severe, and the deprivation often causes effects similar to those with grave mental illness. Solitary confinement is considered by some to be cruel and unusual punishment, because of its severe effects on a person's mental state.
    2. Deprivation of sleep may also result in irritability, blurred vision, slurred speech, memory lapses, overall confusion, hallucination, nausea, psychosis, and eventually death.
    3. Force-feeding a large quantity of salt causes intense pain in the abdomen. Many practitioners have died from the resulting dehydration. It proves that the purpose of the force-feeding is never to nourish, but rather to punish practitioners and to cause so much pain that they will renounce Falun Gong practice. Forced-feeding is the number one cause of deaths of Falun Gong practitioners.

    Falun Dafa practitioner Mrs. Fu Shuying from Dalian City, Liaoning Province is in her 50s. On July 13, 2005, she was arrested by the police and detained in theYaojia Detention Center now in Dalian City.

    2. Persecution Facts of an Older Gentleman and Young Child

    Falun Dafa practitioner Mr. Zhao Bingkui is in his 70s and lives in Zhoukou City, Henan Province. During the past six years of persecution, he and his wife (also a practitioner) have endured many hardships, including being confined in prison, forced to attend brainwashing classes, having their home ransacked, and paying extortion of more than ten thousand yuan. Their home was never at peace during these six years. His daughter-in-law divorced his son, and their granddaughter was left without parental care and wanders about on the streets. His son is sick with no one to care for him. His previously happy family situation has been chaotic due to the persecution.

    3. Police Harass and Arrest Falun Dafa Practitioners in Shangshui County, Henan Province

The police have threatened and harassed their family members.

    4. The 610 Offices in Fuyang City and Anhui Province Combined to Suppress Falun Dafa Practitioner Ms. Li Jijuan

    On June 9, 2005, the 610 Office in both Fuyang City and Anhui Province came to Yingquan District Educational Office in Fuyang City, and pressured those in charge into letting them arrest an employee, Falun Dafa practitioner Ms. Li Jijuan, and send her to the Province Brainwashing Class. The Fuyang City CCP Political and Judiciary Committee Secretary and the 610 Office Head Qi Chenggang (male) dismissed Ms. Li Jijuan from her job, and also dismissed her two younger brothers (not practitioners) from their jobs. Qi Chenggang also fired the Yingquan District Educational Office Chair Mr. Wu Jiagui, and the Yingquan District CCP Political and Judiciary Committee Secretary (name unknown) from their positions. Qi Chenggang has done many outrageous deeds in order to incite ordinary citizens to turn against Falun Dafa and Falun Dafa practitioners. This is the third time Ms. Li Jijuan has being targeted since May 2004.

    5. Ms. Zhou Wenshuang Paid Ten Thousand Yuan in Extortion Before Being Sent to Forced Labor Camp

    Falun Dafa practitioner Ms. Zhou Wenshuang is in her 40's and lives in the Qianzhuang Village, Dadi Township, Shenzhou City, Hebei Province. On the morning of March 5, 2005, she was brutally beaten and abducted by Yan Shuchang and Zhang Jianmin (both male) from the Dadi Township Government. Her mother-in-law is disabled, has epilepsy, and requires constant care. Her neighbors have come forward to condemn the arrest and have requested that police let her go home to take care of her mother-in-law until her husband returns. The police ignored her mother-in-law's plight and took Ms. Zhou to the township government. Ms. Zhou was beaten to unconsciousness. She was then sent to the Shenzhou City Police Department, and again beaten and injected with cardiac medication by policeman Jia Shuangwan. She was then transferred to the Shenzhou City Detention Center. During the two to three months of detention, she was forced to do heavy labor. Her family went to the township government to request her release, but all requests were denied. Township government official Yan Shuchang slandered her family, calling them Falun Dafa practitioners who want to overthrow the government, and ordered the city police department to harass and threaten them at their home. He threatened that if they again requested the release of Ms. Zhou, he would have the entire family arrested. Later policemen Zhang Yuchao and Jia Shuangwan extorted 17 thousand yuan from her family. Her family didn't have the money because they had previously paid a ten thousand yuan extortion when Ms. Zhou was abducted on two other occasions. Without the extortion money, Ms. Zhou has been sentenced to one year of forced labor in the Gaoyang Forced Labor Camp.
