(Clearwisdom.net) Ms. Yu Yali is on the brink of death! The former judicial representative of Xinhuo Surface Materials Technology Limited Company of Jinan City, Yu Yali was illegally sentenced to seven years imprisonment on November 16, 2004, and is currently imprisoned in the Shandong Province Women's Prison. She has dropped to 77 pounds from 132 pounds. Her mother hopes that more righteous voices and media within China and overseas will sound their concern about Ms. Yu's persecution.

Since she was imprisoned, Yu Yali has had little food, and she has become very weak. There is protein in her urine, indicating serious health problems. Her mother says that Yu Yali's life is in great danger and her family is worried. Each time they visit her, Yu Yali tells her family, "We are really not some kind of [slanderous word omitted], and we are not interested in politics. Every single thing I do is because I simply love my country and its people so much. If I am able to awaken the righteousness and conscience in the hearts of the people, there will be no regrets for me when I leave this world."

Plainclothes police trailed Dafa practitioners Yu Yali, Liu Xiangyun, Chu Zhongmei and Su Shuzhen in early April 2004. On April 21, they were arrested one after the other at home and at the east gate of Baotu Spring in Jinan City. Police officers broke into their homes illegally and confiscated their computers, printers, photocopiers and Dafa materials. On November 16, 2004, the Jinan City Tianqiao District Court illegally sentenced Liu Xiangyun, Yu Yali, and Chu Zhongmei to seven years in prison, and Su Shuzhen to four years in prison.

Yu Yali is being held in the Shandong Province Women's Prison. She has been forced into slave labor for her refusal to give up her belief in "Truthfulness, Compassion, Forbearance," and is on a hunger strike to protest the inhumane persecution. Shandong Province Prison has forced Yu Yali to receive so-called "treatments" in the hospital, so they can extort money from her family. So far, they have taken more than 1,000 yuan in cash that Ms. Yu's family has been forced to pay for these "medical expenses."
