(Clearwisdom.net) I am 15 years old this year. When I was younger I got to know about Falun Gong as my mother was a Falun Gong practitioner. A few years later in January 2001, I started to practice Falun Gong. My mind and body went through purification, my health improved and my performance in studies got better.

But the brutal persecution initiated by Jiang Zemin towards Falun Gong practitioners did not even spare a child like me. I was sent to the forced labor camp to be mentally tortured. At that time I was only fourteen years old. The police ransacked my home and made a big mess. Furthermore, they illegally made us pay huge fines that led to major financial problems for my family, we had problems even feeding ourselves after paying those huge fines. At present my family has difficulties sending me to school. Who doesn't want to attend school? But all the money that my family had was lost in paying those fines, how was I going to pay my school fees? Is all this legal? All that money was hard-earned by my parents through honest labor. I feel that those people, especially Jiang Zemin, should be held responsible for these actions. The worst of all is that they are persecuting good people who are true cultivators of kindness.
