A Middle School Teacher Suffers Persecution
(Clearwisdom.net) Mr. Liu Guoliang is an art teacher in Harbin's No. 31 Middle School. After July 20, 1999 when the persecution began, he and his wife Wang Fenglan, also a Falun Gong practitioner, went to Beijing to appeal to the government. They were arrested, sent back and fined 3,000 Yuan [approximately 6-month salary of an average urban worker in China]. In 2000 they went to Beijing to appeal again, and police beat them during their detention in Beijing. After being escorted back to Harbin, Liu Guoliang was sent to Changlinzi Labor Camp, and Wang Fenglan was sent to Wanjia Labor Camp.
In Changlinzi Labor Camp, Liu Guoliang went on a hunger strike to protest. The police asked the prisoners to force-feed him. Liu did not cooperate and was forced to squat inside his small cell on five different occasions. In the jail, Liu got scabies all over his body and his leg became infected, which left a small hole in his flesh that nearly exposed the bone.
In 2002 after he was released, the local police still went to his home to harass him regularly. Before the 16th conference of the Chinese Communist Party, Liu was arrested again by the Harbin Daowai Police Department and Songpu Police Branch while he was at work. He was detained in the Daowai police department detention center for six months and later sentenced to four years in jail. Police asked him to sign a statement to condemn Dafa, but he wrote, "Falun Dafa is good, I will persist practicing it to the end." The authorities were angry and added one more year to his sentence. During his detention in Hulan Jail, the police forbade his family members to visit him.
His wife Wang Fenglan was hunted down by the police and was forced to leave their home. They have no ability to pay their mortgage payments. The creditor drove their three children out of the house and took it over. The children are now with relatives.
