  • More Details On Ms. Liu Zhifen's Death by Torture at the Hands of Chongzhou City Police (Photo)

    The police waited until 2:00 p.m. on February 4, 2001 before informing Liu Zhifen's children to come to the police station. The police officer present shamelessly yelled at her children, "Liu Zhifen cultivated to the point of insanity and is dead!" Her family was shocked by the news and wanted to pursue justice for her. The police oficer shouted again, "She has already been sent to the crematory. You can go to see Jiang Zemin!"
  • Since Changchun TV Broadcasts Exposing Human Rights Violations against Falun Gong Practitioners, Jiang's Regime Escalates Brutal Persecution to Unprecedented Heights

    On March 5, 2002, Falun Gong practitioners in China's northeastern city of Changchun broadcast programmes over China's state-run airwaves, exposing the systematic atrocities against Falun Gong practitioners and Jiang Zemin's attempts to cover them up. This exposure of the truth produced fear in the highest levels of the regime. Enraged, Jiang Zemin ordered to "kill without pardon" those responsible for the broadcast. Over the next few days, more than 5,000 people believed to be practitioners of Falun Gong were detained during an all-out and unprecedented police sweep in Changchun, and the city was under near-martial law. Dozens were killed as a result of police brutality during the round up. A total media blackout severely hampered many attempts to contact locals and confirm individual reports.
  • Jiamusi Labour Camp Responsible For Torture, Embezzlement and Defective Products Produced With Dafa Practitioners' Slave Labour

    The Jiamusi Labour Camp continually forces Dafa practitioners to perform intense labour, and most of the time the work goes beyond a regular working day. They did not discriminate about what kind of work they would force us to do, as long as it made them money. Recently they got a contract with an individual who sent us piles of dirty flax materials that could only be found in refuse piles. The labour camp forced us to use these dirty materials to make cushions for car seats, which would not meet any reasonable quality standard at all. They did not mind hurting consumers in order to make themselves a profit.
  • False Fronts Built on Forced Labour Camps to Conceal the Persecution of Falun Gong from Media and Foreign Investors

    These false fronts can easily deceive the foreign media and investors and lead them to believe that the forced labour camp is a comfortable resort - with deer even! Behind these expensive false fronts, many Falun Gong practitioners have been tortured and murdered in Tuanhe Forced Labour Camp. Imagine that Jiang Zemin's regime would spend a lavish amount of taxpayers' money to create a false impression that China's human rights have been improved so that it can lure foreign investors to the Chinese market, to evade worldwide condemnation and pressure to end the persecution, and to win the chance to host the Olympic Games, and, most importantly, to continue the persecution of Falun Gong.

  • How Many More Families Like Ours Are Being Persecuted?

    My family then paid the money to the labour camp in exchange for my mum's release. However, the labour camp officials didn't release my mother as they promised. Two weeks later, the local police notified us that my mum was at the police station and could be released to us for an additional amount of 3,000 yuan. My family was really angry at their blatant corruption, yet had no choice but to pay them the money in hopes of reuniting my mother with the family. Those local officials! They don't help or serve the local people but instead take every opportunity to extort money from good people for their personal gain.
  • Names of Officials Responsible for the Torture and Extortion of Falun Dafa Practitioners in Nanyang City

    Staff members from Nanyang City Political and Legal Committee "610 Office" have held many brainwashing sessions to persecute and extort money from practitioners. Every time a brainwashing session was held, the executive officers would appropriate large amounts of public money for the operation of such sessions. These funds are hard-earned money paid by the people of the district. However, on top of these extensive funds the brainwashing facility staff members force practitioners to pay 30 yuan in the name of room and board even though they are detained against their wishes and do not volunteer for these classes.
  • Life of Falun Dafa Practitioner Tian Xiaofei in Grave Danger After Several Months of Torturous Forced-Feeding

    His health is deteriorating from the torturous forced-feedings he endures four or five times each day. He has now become so emaciated that when his family came to visit him, he required the assistance of several people in order to walk. To cover up their crimes of torture, the prison administration now refuses all visitors, and has said they will not allow him any medical parole for treatment of his internal injuries until all of his internal organs are totally malfunctioning.
  • The Ongoing Brutal Persecution of Mother and Daughter From Handan City

    Du Likun is now in custody and her mother Yang Fenglian is in a life-threatening situation due to the torture she is enduring at the brainwashing centre. It seems ironic that Jiang Zemin should declare this time to be China's best period for human rights ever, when a mother and her teenage daughter are being deprived of the basic rights of freedom and safety.
  • Chengdu City Factory Dismisses Worker to Force Him to Divorces His Falun Gong Practitioner Wife

    They asked for my husband to come to the factory for a conference and announced that he was not allowed to come to work. They told him that he could not come back to work until he was divorced. They further told him that I would no longer be allowed to live in Factory 5701 after the divorce and if anyone found me in the factory, my husband would be charged with providing shelter for a criminal. Thus, so my husband and son could avoid "guilt by association," we were divorced, and a happy, harmonious family was broken apart.
