On the day preceding the 86th Anniversary of the Chinese Communist Party's (CCP) founding, it congratulated itself with a new wave of nationwide large scale abductions of Falun Gong practitioners. Almost all of the abducted practitioners have never been heard from since they were taken away by the police, and the authorities refused to reveal their whereabouts even to their families.
According to Clearwisdom.net, an official Falun Gong website which keeps records of persecution cases, provincial 610 offices 1 recently ordered their subordinate offices to press local companies and government agencies to deploy more rigorous surveillance on Falun Gong practitioners.
Telecommunication service providers have been required to monitor phone calls and text messages of Falun Gong practitioners. The 610 offices were also required to search their own areas to make sure no Falun Gong practitioner is left out of the CCP's monitoring. Other than local suppressions, actions have also been taken to prevent Falun Gong practitioners from entering Hong Kong.
Many cases of the recent wave of persecution have been recorded in detail on the Clearwisdom website. For example, on June 21 the public security bureau in the northeastern city of Tonghua ordered subordinate police stations to send out three armed police and six assistant police to be on patrol from 12 a.m. to 3 a.m. every night. Police in these districts are said to be awarded 500 yuan for each time they abduct a Falun Gong practitioner, and people seen taking Falun Gong materials are also arrested.
Another case happened in Macheng City, Hubei Province. On the evening of June 22, 2007, about 100 police officers and people from the local 610 Office abducted over 20 Falun Gong practitioners, among which are Shi Xuexing and his wife Li Jini. The police broke Li's door, and robbed their computer and a few pictures of the founder of Falun Gong. The two little kids of the couple were left unattended at home.
In many other places, policemen broke into Falun Gong practitioners' homes and tried to force them to sign agreements to stop practicing Falun Gong.
Cases like this happened in countless other provinces around the country. Many policemen admitted that orders were given nationwide to carry out such actions.
The CCP has spent eight years and huge sums of money on the persecution of Falun Gong practitioners. The recent large-scale arrest, however, proves that the Party's attempt to annihilate this peaceful spiritual movement has not succeeded.
 The 610 Office is an agency specifically created to persecute Falun Gong, with absolute power over each level of administration in the Party and all other political and judiciary systems.
