Ms. Zhang Hua Is in Critical Condition as She Resists Persecution with Hunger Strike
(Clearwisdom.net) Falun Gong practitioner Ms. Zhang Hua from Tongnan County, Chongqing City was "illegally arrested" by six to seven policemen headed by Zhang Liang when she went to visit her mother on the afternoon of July 21, 2005. Before the abduction, in the past two years, she had been forced to be homeless in order to avoid being persecuted. Ms. Zhang Hua began a hunger strike as a form of peaceful protest against her incarceration. Her hunger strike has been going on for more than 40 days and she is now in critical condition.
Ms. Zhang Hua, 43 years old, originally worked at the Tongnan Farm Machinery Company but had been unemployed for several years. Due to her practice of Falun Gong she has always been a prime target of the authorities that were attempting to pursue and capture her.
It was learned that policeman Zhang Liang and his men tried to extort a confession from Ms. Zhang Hua by cruel torture. The process lasted for more than ten days (the details of the torture are unknown), after which she was escorted to the Tongnan Detention Center. Zhang Liang wanted to find out which of her relatives Ms. Zhang Hua had visited when she was wondering from place to place so as to avoid arrest. He was attempting to collect evidence in order to sentence Ms. Zhang Hua to a long prison term. It was said that Zhang Liang rented a house just opposite Ms. Zhang Hua's mother's house so as to trace the whereabouts of Ms. Zhang Hua and then capture her.
Since her abduction Ms. Zhang Hua has been staging a hunger strike to protest against the persecution for over 40 days and is now in critical condition. Ms. Zhang is currently being held in the surgical ward of the Tongnan County Hospital. Her hands and feet are tied up and she is guarded 24 hours a day. Zhang Liang also phoned the authorities in Chongqing City enquiring what he should do if Ms. Zhang's state of health declines even further. The authorities in the city requested Zhang to send her to the hospital, stating that they would rather see her die in the hospital than have her released.
Ms. Zhang Hua's parents are over 70 years old and were employees for the Tongnan Taian Canned Food Factory. Ms. Zhang's mother is not in good health and has to live on a very limited pension because the factory they worked for has been closed for so many years. Ms. Zhang's son, Mr. Tong Zijia, is in his 20s. He served in the army and is now working somewhere in Chongqing City. On hearing the news that his mother was arrested, he cried in a state of deep grief. Ms. Zhang Hua's parents were worried about her safety during her detention, so they frequently visited with changes of clothes for her; however, they were not allowed to see their daughter. Under the fear of further persecution they dared not visit the police station to see Zhang Liang and ask him to release their daughter.
Policeman Zhang Liang has spared no effort in persecuting Falun Gong practitioners over the last six years as the captain of the local State Security Brigade. His wife Li Juan works at the Tongnan Post and Telecommunication Department. Zhang Liang treats the persecution of Falun Gong practitioners as a lucrative business for his personal promotion and money making.
We call on people all over the world to help rescue Ms. Zhang Hua and stop the killing of innocent lives that is now happening in China!
