September 13, 2005

The following is a partial translation by CECC staff of a report that appeared on the Web site of China's national Sweep Away Pornography and Strike Down Illegal Publications Task Force:


While monitoring postal merchandise, Xian customs uncovered 1,826 VCDs propandizing the "Falun Gong" evil cult mailed from places abroad like America, Japan, and Malaysia. They uncovered a batch of illegal political publications and propaganda materials with reactionary content, and were effective in preventing these illegal political publications from being disseminated in Xian. In 2004, [officials] city-wide confiscated over 260,000 volumes of illegal political publications, and 280,000 volumes of illegal pornographic publications.
