Xu Ziao is a 15-year-old girl who lives in apartment #3 on the first floor, unit 1, building 18, Qianguang Subdivision, Shengli Street, Dagang District, Tianjin City. On May 1, 2001, she left home behind in order to resist the brainwashing class that the local police station and the residency committee organized especially for her. She was arrested on November 8, 2001 on Tiananmen Square and detained in Pinggu County. Xu Ziao was released on November 13 after nearly 5 days of hunger strike, as reported by Clearwisdom.

Her mother Sun Ti has been harassed many times by the Dagang police for practicing Falun Gong. They confiscated her property, arrested her and sent her to the detention center twice. Even knowing that there was a warrant for her arrest, she is still clarifying the truth to people.

In the evening of November 21, the police in Tianjin recognized the mother and daughter on the street. They arrested them and still hold them captive today. It is difficult to imagine the torture that they have surely endured. The police have also confiscated all of their property, including the house that they lived in.

Xu Ziao and her mother knew of the danger before they were arrested, yet they did not withdraw from clarifying the truth. They firmly believed in the Teacher. They said that if they were arrested again, they would go on hunger strike just like they did before during previous detentions.

They are currently being detained at the Tianjin Police Department, and the 610 Office of the Tianjin Police Department is responsible for this matter.

We call upon all kind-hearted people in the world to act together in order to rescue Falun Gong practitioner Ziao and her mother, and to put an end to this persecution.
