Pregnant Practitioner, an Engineer from Guangdong Province, Dies After Jumping From Building to Escape Brutal Persecution by the Police
(Clearwisdom.net) According to news from Guangzhou City, on December 4, 2002, Ms. Luo Zhixiang, a former engineer from the design office at Guangdong Province Agricultural Construction Inc. jumped from a building to escape persecution by the authorities from Tianhe District "610 Office" and the Xinghua Street Police Station. She was three months pregnant when she died.
According to a December 30, 2002 report from Falun Dafa Information Center, the news source claimed that the government illegally pursued Luo Zhixiang and her husband Huang Guohua for practicing Falun Gong, and the couple was forced to become homeless for more than two years to avoid persecution. On November 20, 2002, Luo Zhixiang and her husband, Huang Guohua, were kidnapped by police from the local "610 Office" in their rented room in Haizhu District, Guangzhou City. They were sent to Haizhu District Detention Center, where Luo Zhixiang held a hunger strike to protest the persecution. The thugs from Tianhe District "610 Office" and the Xinghua Street Police Station ignored the fact that Luo Zhixiang was three months pregnant and had been on a hunger strike for many days, as they forcibly sent her to a brainwashing class and coerced her to write the "Three Statements" [in which the practitioner claims to give up Falun Gong practice and other promises], and tortured her physically and mentally. Later, Luo Zhixiang became severely dehydrated and extremely weak, and she was sent to a hospital. Her family asked to take her home on bail, but their request was rejected. On December 4, in an attempt to escape relentless persecution, Luo Zhixiang jumped from the building and tragically, died upon impact.
A source said that news of Ms Luo's death is being blocked by the government and her husband Huang Guohua is still being detained and is not allowed to see Luo Zhixiang's body.
On the 29th, a reporter verified with the Xinghua Street Police Office in Tianhe District, that Luo Zhixiang was arrested and detained because she was a Falun Gong practitioner.
According to statistics, as of now, 558 deaths of Falun Gong practitioners have been verified, all of whom have died from persecution by Jiang's regime. At least 25 of them have died jumping off buildings in an attempt to escape police brutality. These police officers will receive harsh punishment from the law and according to heavenly principles for their crimes of following Jiang's regime to drive innocent people to their deaths.
