First-hand Accounts of the September 23rd Large-scale Arrests of Practitioners in Daqing City (Photos) Part 2

When Mr. Zheng Hongjun was arrested, he was pushed into the police car barefoot in only his underwear. His sister and brother tried to stop the arrest, but were attacked by the police. His father, in his 60s, was so scared he fell onto a bed, pale faced with terror. Mr. Zheng's 65-year-old mother, who had never had heart problems, developed an irregular heartbeat due to the arrest. Zheng Hongjun's daughter, who has been disabled and bedridden for ten years and cannot speak clearly, was threatened to the point of crying and almost fell onto the floor from her bed. Now Mr. Zheng has been detained at the Longfeng Detention Centre for over 20 days. His parents and daughter have been suffering all day long, every single day. His daughter beat her chest with her hands and shouted "Daddy! Daddy!" in tears while looking at her daddy's empty bed.

The arrest of Ms. Chen Qingli left her whole family in tremendous sorrow. Her son lost his happiness for he is now unable to see his mom after school. To avoid making Ms. Chen's parents and father-in-law unhappy, Ms. Chen's husband did not tell his father and her parents about the arrest. Ms. Chen's brother and sister had to take a temporary leave of absence from their jobs to beg for help for her. Her husband said, "I am not old, but see how many grey hairs I've grown these years! She just got back from detention, and worked for two years, and now she is arrested again. I don't know how to survive anymore!"

When police officers broke into Ms. Gao Guifen's home like robbers, Ms. Gao's 13-year-old grandchild-in-law was terrified to the point of crying. Ms. Gao's husband, a 68-year-old professor, suffered a heavy mental trauma. Since July 20th, 1999, due to the frequent harassment by police officers, this honest academician has suffered from depression and has been under medical treatment. But this new impact almost killed him. Sometimes he feels that life is unbearable. His children are frightened and had to accompany their father to work, which interfered with their jobs.

Dark Agents Are still Manoeuvring, Plots Are still Going on

According to reliable sources, former president Jiang Zemin's die-hard followers, Zeng Qinhong and Luo Gan, have mobilised a new round of large-scale arrests by making use of the police and secret agencies. Their intentions are to create a situation of intensified persecution after Hu Jintao and Wen Jiabao came into power, and thereby shift some of the responsibility for the persecution onto Hu and Wen.

At around September 20th, 2005, police chiefs across Heilongjiang Province gathered at Harbin City to plot the arrest campaign. They listed Harbin and Daqing as focal points. The provincial police department sent name lists of practitioners to the local levels and ordered them to arrest the designated practitioners before October 1st. In some areas, police officers were ordered to eat at the police dining hall, and to monitor, patrol and arrest practitioners day and night with an emphasis on nighttime arrests. On the night of September 22nd, the Daqing City Police Department and State Security Department held an emergency meeting, and decided to arrest practitioners on the list the next morning.

Some police officers resisted or were reluctant to follow orders in this round of persecution. One police chief said, "They really have nothing to do, why arrest those practitioners?!" Many police officers said, "This party is coming to an end, why always arrest Falun Gong practitioners?!" Several deputy police chiefs said, "What's the use of arresting practitioners? There are so many criminal cases which we have no time to deal with." One city-level official said, "Whenever I was forced to organise an arrest of Falun Gong practitioners, I would feel like I was committing crimes and felt very uneasy."

Afraid that local police officers aren't cruel enough to practitioners, the persecuting authorities ordered that police branches are not allowed to decide what to do with the arrested practitioners, and must report the status of persecution and arrests to the upper levels. Recently, in provinces such as Heilongjiang, Jilin, Liaoning, Hebei, Henan, Hubei, Shandong, Ningxia, Anhui, Guangdong and Beijing City, many arrests of Falun Gong practitioners have occurred, and cases of deaths of practitioners have happened continuously. These are new crimes the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) has committed against Falun Gong practitioners.

In the afternoon of September 30th, police authorities in Daqing City held another emergency meeting to deploy a citywide search and arrest of Falun Gong practitioners before the night of October 1st, China's National Day. The meeting ordered all police officers to enter into "category 1 vigilance." At around October 21st, officers from the Heilongjiang Province 610 Office1 stayed at the Daqing Ethylene Factory for a long period of time. Under pressure, the Ethylene Factory Police Forces carried out intensive monitoring and investigation, and arrested practitioners.

We demand the unconditional release of all detained practitioners, and demand that these criminal officers be put to justice, and that the name of Falun Dafa be cleared immediately!
