The Chinese Communist Party Persecutes Practitioners in the Yanbian Area, Jilin Province

Before the Chinese Communist Party held it's 17th National People's Congress, agents of the Yanbian Administration Division Political and Judicial Committee, the Administration Division 610 Office1, the Administration Division Court and the Appeals Office went to local counties and cities to keep Falun Gong practitioners from going to Beijing to appeal. They planned to strengthen their efforts to persecute Falun Gong, and they rampantly arrested practitioners.

Since August, news has continuously come out from the Yanbian area where the Chinese Communist Party is persecuting and arresting Falun Gong practitioners. As far as we know, the persecution this time was planned and organized by several organizations including the Yanbian Administration Division Political and Judicial Committee, the Administration Division 610 Office, and the National Security Team of the Administration Division.

In mid September, several police stations in Yanji City used the excuse of checking residence permits to break into several practitioners' homes at Yanji City. Since the practitioners' family members strongly resisted this action, they did not succeed.

On September 12th, Ms. Jiang Shumei, a 50-year-old practitioner who resided in the neighbourhood of Dayu Garden District, was arrested at home by the Yanji City National Security Team. Much of her property including her computer and printer was confiscated.

On September 13th, a practitioner named Mr. Zhang Xingcai, 58 years old, from the Yanji City Development Area, was arrested at home by five policemen from the National Security Team of Yanji City.

On September 14th, two more female practitioners were taken away by the police.

At around 11:00 a.m. on September 29th, Jin Dezhu was taken away from her workplace by two plainclothes policemen.

On the evening of September 29th, officers from the Tumen City 610 Office, the Hongguang Police Substation, and the Yuegong Police Substation arrested Liu Chunhe, Ding Shuxian and Liu Shuzhi, and unlawfully detained them at Hou'anshan Detention Centre.

That same evening, a dozen policemen, along with Li Jinyou of the Tumen City 610 Office and the National Security Team, broke into practitioner Liu Xiuhua's home in Qushui Village, Yueqing Town. They confiscated Falun Dafa books and other materials. They made video recordings while they confiscated the property and arrested practitioner Ms. Liu Xiuhua (in her forties). When Liu Xiuhua's family members, who were non-practitioners, tried to talk compassionately to the police, this group of offiers ran into the family home and searched it. They confiscated a computer and DVDs as well. Later, the police continued to search other practitioners' homes.

On September 30th, the National Security Team of the Yanji City Public Security Bureau hurriedly sentenced four practitioners, including Zhang Xingcai, to forced labour, and sent them to the Yinmahe Forced Labour Camp at Jiutai, Jilin Province and the Heizuizi Forced Labor Camp at Changchun.

On October 12th, the Jiangong Street Neighbourhood Committee of Yanji City went to the practitioners' workplace, saying that soon Falun Gong practitioners would have a large-scale activity. They told the workplace managers to keep an eye on their employees. The employers felt the pressure, and phoned the practitioners' families, telling them to watch the practitioners.

On October 12th, nine practitioners from Zhuanjiaolou Village, Tianqiaoling Town, Wangqing County, including Cui Guangyong, were arrested.

At 2:00 p.m. on October 12th, practitioner Wu Yingzi from Wangqing County was arrested. At around 8:00 p.m. on October 12, the police arrested the couple Lin Jiping and Chen Guifeng at their home.

At 2:00 p.m. on October 12, the police from the Dachuan Police Substation of Wangqing County arrested practitioner Mr. Zheng Lijun. Zheng Lijun's son, a junior high school student named Zheng Xiang, his wife's sister-in-law and his wife's brother's mother-in-law stopped the police from leaving. The police called for another twenty policemen, and several police vehicles. They dragged away Zheng's wife's brother's mother-in-law, and pushed aside his son. The four policemen took Zheng Lijun to the police vehicle. His son Zheng Xiang tried to prevent the police vehicles from leaving. The director of the Dachuan Police Substation forcibly pushed and assaulted the child.

At this moment, his wife's sister-in-law also went forward to stop them but was pushed down to the floor. The surrounding neighbors all condemned the police officers' behaviour. The whole event lasted from 2:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. During this time, the police also tried to arrest Zheng's brother-in-law. Since his brother-in-law was not at home, they did not succeed.

The police threatened to hold a brainwashing session at the Zhong'an Detention Centre in Wangqing County. They wouldn't release anyone before the 17th National People's Congress. Currently only Zheng Lijun is detained at the Zhong'an Detention Centre in Wangqing County. The other practitioners (over twenty of them) were detained unlawfully at Mantianxing Brainwashing Centre.

On around October 15th, the National Security Team of Yanji City sent two practitioners, including Jin Dezhu, to Jiutai Forced Labour Camp.

On the morning of October 16th, a practitioner named Sister Dayang from Erdaobai River, Antu County, Jilin Province went to Li Leyou's home. She was followed all the way by a policeman named Wang Yong. The police called the police substation and had the two of them arrested. The police found leaflets exposing the persecution, a printer and some Dafa books as well.
