The four-day 18th Chinese Communist Party (CCP) Fourth
Plenary Session opened in Beijing on the morning of Oct. 20.
Petitioners across the country gathered in Beijing.
According to mainland activist website “64TianWang",
thousands of petitioners gathered around the CCP State
Letters and Complaints Bureau, the National people’s
Congress, and the Central Commission for Discipline.
There were also more than two thousand staff who tried
to stop the petitioners.
Where the CCP had the meetings, such as Zhongnanhai and
Tiananmen Square, there was strict security control.
So few people were able to gather there.
Changzhou Property Owners Beaten When Defending
On Oct. 19, several hundred property owners defended
their rights in Silver River First City in Changzhou, Jiangsu.
The developer used local government forces so many police
rushed to the scene.
Owners were beaten, and several were arrested.
It is understood that the Silver River First City was
developed by Huaguang Real Estate.
The developer cannot submit the houses on time, so
the site has been shut down for a year.
The owners went to defend their rights many times
in Changzhou municipal government and other places.
But they could get no result.

practitioner Liu Yuxian, was in a bad physical state under the

It is understood that Liu Yuxian began to practice Falun Gong
since 1998, and a variety of diseases of hers were cured.
She became heathy, both physically and mentally.

After she was released, the community director and others
many times went to her home to threaten and intimidate her.
This resulted in Liu’s physical condition deteriorating
