(Clearwisdom.net) Practitioner Ms. Pei Shuhua was illegally arrested when she clarified the truth about Falun Dafa on November 4, 2005. To protest the persecution she immediately went on hunger strike, which has now lasted for over two weeks. Instead of releasing her, the authorities transferred her to the central hospital of Jilin Province Prison Administration Bureau and continued their persecution. Visitations by her family members have not been permitted. We still do not know if she is alive or dead or what her current condition is.

Ms. Pei Shuhua, 54 years old, was a nurse at the Shuangyang District Hospital in Changchun City, Jilin Province. In 1998 she started to practice Falun Dafa. Her body and mind changed a great deal, especially her behavior. She became a good person in every situation, a change obvious to all at her workplace. Because she benefited from Falun Dafa physically and mentally, her belief in Dafa was firm and she was very diligent.

On July 20, 1999, the CCP began to suppress Falun Gong with fabricated evidence. To uphold Dafa, Ms. Pei clarified the truth to government agencies and sentient beings in various ways, and as a result suffered from severe persecution. At the end of 1999, Ms. Pei went to Beijing to appeal on behalf of Falun Dafa and was illegally detained for one month. Later, she was illegally sentenced to one year of imprisonment in a forced labor camp. In October 2002, when her term was completed, she refused to be "transformed" and was again sent to the Xinglongshan brainwashing center in Changchun City. After the brainwashing failed, she was sent back to Heizuizi Forced Labor Camp and detained, although there were no legal proceedings. Ms. Pei did not cooperate with any requests from the evil and protested the persecution in various ways. In October 2003, she showed serious symptoms of severe illnesses. The labor camp was afraid being held responsible and released her.

Ms. Pei Shuhua was not only tortured physically and spiritually, but also financially. During her stay in the forced labor camp, her workplace violated relevant laws and terminated her wages. When she was released from the labor camp, she was penniless (she lived alone) and could not afford to buy rice or oil. She could not afford heat in winter, and her home was as cold as ice. She repeatedly asked to go to work but was refused. Later, her workplace gave her 300 yuan per month as a living allowance. This August, at her strong request, her workplace promised to let her go back to work.

Although Ms. Pei Shuhua suffered from severe persecution, she never changed her mind in upholding Dafa or about her compassion for sentient beings. To help more people know the truth about Falun Dafa, besides clarifying truth to sentient beings face-to-face, she also distributed a great deal of truth clarification flyers and VCDs in her spare time. She traveled to many villages and cities. To save sentient beings, she was unafraid.

On August 31, 2005, she was reported and arrested when she was distributing materials in the Pinghu residential buildings in the Shuangyang District. She went on a hunger strike for five days and walked out of the forced labor camp with righteous thoughts.

On November 4, 2005, less than two and half months later, she was again reported and arrested when she clarified the truth to elementary school students. The police plotted to send her to a forced labor camp, so she went on a hunger strike to protest the arrest and detention. It has been over 20 days. The police have been reckless with her life and safety and have refused to release her. They transferred her several times and finally sent her to the central hospital of Jilin Province Prison Administration Bureau to continue the persecution. Visits from her family members have been prohibited, and we don't know if she is alive or dead.

We urgently call on all governments and all righteous people to extend their help to appeal to the Chinese government to obey the laws it established and to reinstate religious freedom for Dafa practitioners, to help those determined Dafa practitioners in China who are persecuted because of their insistent belief, to help those people get out of the dens of evil as soon as possible, and to help Ms. Pei Shuhua get out of danger immediately.
