Daqing City in Heilongjiang Province Police Arrest and Beat Local Residents for Reading Falun Gong Leaflets at Lantern Festival

I had a get-together several days ago. One of my friends is a police officer. He mentioned some marvellous stories that occurred on March 4th, 2007 (January 15th--the Lantern Festival--on the lunar calendar) in Daqing City, Heilongjiang Province.

Over one thousand plainclothes police and armed officers were among the crowd

It was March 4th, the 15th day of the Chinese New Year. Tens of thousands of residents gathered to enjoy lanterns and fireworks in Shiji Square in Dongfeng New Village, Daqing City. Over one thousand undercover police and armed police were among the crowd. Practitioners distributed free handouts that informed people about the true nature of Falun Gong among the crowd. It was quite risky. They could have been arrested if they were discovered. The police arrested some residents for reading the handouts. Several of them were sent to the Daqing City Detention Centre. The police beat them before questioning and interrogated them the whole night without allowing any of them to sleep.

The glittering handout compelled a man to pick it up and read

An elderly resident was beaten so badly that he had bruises all over. It turned out that he was a businessman instead of a Falun Gong practitioner. The police asked why he was reading the Falun Gong handout. He said that he had no idea, but he saw that it was glittering, so he picked it up and read it.

Falun Dafa music at night

At night, the police and the residents heard the Falun Dafa music during their interrogation in the Daqing City Detention Centre. After 5 a.m., they heard the Falun Dafa music again. Two of the police officers could not help shedding tears when they heard the music.

The Chinese Communist Party fears the widespread dissemination of the facts of Falun Gong. It beats and arrests the ones who want to know the facts and takes away their freedom. However, Falun Dafa is merciful and miraculous.
