She Nearly Lost Her Life Because She Wanted to Be a Good Person
(Clearwisdom.net) Ms. Geng Li is a 31-year-old Falun Gong practitioner from Dalian City, Liaoning Province. She graduated from the Beijing Language and Culture Institute in 1998 and successfully completed her studies as a Spanish language major. She always wanted to be a teacher. After she graduated, she worked as a Spanish language teacher. All the people who knew her, especially the foreign students who study Chinese at her school, appreciated her kindness and purity. Unfortunately even a kind young female teacher won't be spared from the Chinese Communist Party's persecution of Falun Gong.
On July 4, 2005, four male and one female plainclothes officers with a white van illegally arrested Geng Li in front of her school. They didn't show her any credentials. They forcefully arrested her and took her to the Navy Plaza Police Station at Zhongshan District to record a so-called "confession." At the same time, they ransacked her apartment and confiscated two copies of the book Zhuan Falun, one computer, one color ink-jet printer, one cell phone, three video discs and other personal belongings. To date none of her property has been returned.
In the evening Geng Li was taken to the Dalian City Detention Center and illegally imprisoned. Detention center doctors force-fed her because she conducted a hunger strike to protest her mistreatment. She was twice tortured with shackles. Her hands were handcuffed behind her back and then cuffed to her feet using a very short shackle. She wasn't able to sit or lie down. After a while her hands were swollen.
On July 6, 2005, Geng Li was interrogated. The police lied, saying they'd found a lot of flyers, brochures and videodiscs. On July 26, Geng Li was sent to the Second District of the Masanjia Forced Labor Camp. Geng Li stayed on her hunger strike to protest the persecution.
She learned that the police had kept her under surveillance a long time. Even when she went to the supermarket they'd been following her. But, being the kind person that she was, Geng Li still wouldn't believe that these people couldn't be saved. She gave those people chances again and again. Even in the detention center, when the prison doctors and prison police stretched her legs and covered her mouth and nose to force-feed her, she still continued to clarify the truth to them. From what she said later, the environment in the prison was so bad that even the air was full of "lies, cruelty and violence." The prison broadcasted articles slandering Master and Dafa every day. The warden said that her practice of Falun Gong was disobedient to the will of the CCP, which was why she was being imprisoned and brainwashed. Geng Li was continuously persecuted, and she began to suffer the symptoms of heart disease. Her chest felt congested and she had difficulty breathing.
She began suffering these symptoms on October 19, 2005. Several times she felt her heart beating fiercely. During a so-called "physical examination" conducted near the end of November, it was discovered that the blood-flow to the vessels in her arms was so poor that no samples could be drawn. Even so, officials at the forced labor camp still tried to shake her righteous belief in Falun Dafa. They tried all kinds of methods to change and control her spirit, which she absolutely rejected.
Since they couldn't repress her spirit, they attempted to break her resolve with physical torture.
Her blood vessels were wasted because of the persecution. The prison doctor has tried many times, but still failed to revive her blood vessels. Her heart still beats rapidly and can't be controlled. Her chest still feels congested. If not for her righteous belief in Dafa, she wouldn't be alive today.
What worries her most is that the police, prison officials and spies who implement the persecution believe the CCP lies unquestioningly, and feel justified in using cruelty and violence. They don't believe that "Good is rewarded with good and evil provokes karmic retribution." She knows they will ultimately meet with justice as required by this heavenly principle. When people who try to be good pay with their lives for it, or when they pay with their lives but still lose their right to be good people, the whole nation is in great danger!
