Practitioner Ms. Liu Xiufang from Qingdao City, Shandong Province Is Homeless Again Due to Continuous Persecution (Photos)
(Clearwisdom.net) Falun Dafa practitioner Ms. Liu Xiufang is from Qingdao City, Shandong Province. During the past few years, she has been repeatedly persecuted for her belief in Falun Gong. She has been "illegally sentenced" to forced labor and detained in a mental hospital. Her newly built home and yard walls have also been destroyed. In June 2006, she was forced to leave home again to avoid further persecution.
Ms. Liu is a housewife who lives in Shuangbu Village, Liuting Town in the Chengyang District of Qingdao City. Her husband is an employee of Qingdao Steel Factory. Before practicing Falun Gong, she suffered from many diseases including gastritis, anemia, and bronchitis. After she began the practice of Falun Gong in May 1997, all of her illnesses disappeared. This gave her family hope for their future.
After the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) banned Falun Gong on July 20, 1999, Ms. Liu and seven other practitioners set off for Beijing to appeal on behalf of the practice. However, they were arrested in Wuli County, Shandong Province. The policemen from their local Liuting Frontier Police Station took them back and detained them in the town government building. The local government officials forced them to watch TV programs slandering Falun Gong, and tried to force them to write statements promising to give up the Falun Gong practice.
On October 6, 2000, when Ms. Liu and another female practitioner went to Beijing to clarify the truth about Falun Gong, the police arrested them in the Tianjin City bus station. The Tianjin police notified the Liuting Frontier Police Station, the Liuting Town Government, and her village about their detention. The next day, police officer Zhao from Liuting Frontier Police Station took them back to the local police district (near Nugu Village). Both practitioners were then transferred to the Dashan Detention Center in Qingdao City.
A month later, they were transferred back to Nugu Police District. There, they went on a hunger strike. The authorities forced them to read books and newspapers that smeared Falun Gong, and used other tactics, including instigating family members who were deceived by the CCP lies to try to convince them to give up the practice. One windy and cold night, the guards opened all the windows of the room where Ms. Liu and other practitioners wearing only thin clothes were detained.
Three days later, they were sentenced to three years of forced labor. When they refused the sentence, police officers Zhao and five to six other officers picked them up and put them into a police car.
On November 14, 2000, Ms. Liu was sent to the Wangcun Forced Labor Camp. The labor camp however, refused to accept her because they found in a physical check-up that she had a heart disease. Before releasing Ms. Liu, Jiao Chunhong, an official from Liuting Town Government, and officials from Shuangbu village lied to and tricked Ms. Liu's mother-in-law into paying a 10,000 yuan fine by telling her, "Your daughter-in-law is sick."
Ms. Liu's 70-year-old mother-in-law was at home alone and had to struggle in the pouring rain to borrow money and send it to the village government. But Zhang Xungui, the secretary of the Communist Party Committee of Shuangbu Village, threatened to demolish Ms. Liu's new home to the ground because she hadn't paid the property fee, and asked the poor old lady to pay the money right away. The mother-in-law was so frightened that she knelt down immediately. Although they forced her to borrow another 3,200 yuan, the perpetrators still shut off the electricity to Ms. Liu's home for two years.

One month later on December 18, Ms. Liu Xiufang and Ms. Zhou Yanling went to Beijing again to tell people the truth about the persecution of Falun Gong. When they were preparing to unfurl their banner that read "Falun Dafa Is Good," the police on Tiananmen Square beat and kicked them and pushed them into a police car. The policemen then beat them up again in the car and took them to Tiananmen Square Police Station. Then they were sent to the Office of Qingdao City in Beijing. There they were kicked by an officer when they were doing the Falun Gong exercises. The next day, Jiao Chunhong, an official of Liuting Frontier Police Station and Liuting Town Government, along with Jiang Chongjun, the associate director of Shuangbu Village, escorted them back to Liuting Frontier Police Station and forced them to sit on a hard bench around the clock for thirteen consecutive days. Although Ms. Liu was diagnosed with anemia on the second day after arriving at the police station, she was still forced to sit on the hard bench.
While she was detained at the police station, Zhang Xungui, the Secretary of the Communist Party Committee of Shuangbu Village, ordered Jiang Chongjin to demolish Ms. Liu's new home and yard walls with a forklift truck. Although Ms. Liu didn't pass the physical examination and should have been immediately released, Zhang Xungui didn't release her for fifteen days.

On the fifteenth day, Ms. Liu's family was scheduled to pick her up at 4:00 p.m. Ms. Liu, however, had already been transferred to China-Kore Mental Hospital in Li Village at around 10:00 a.m. by Liuting Frontier police officers Chen Wen, Hu Naijing and Zhao.
At the mental hospital, police director Chen Wen from Liuting Frontier Police Station, went to do the paperwork. Ms. Liu found out that practitioner Ms. Zhou Yanling had been brought to the hospital three days earlier because she was pregnant. Later, a male doctor tried to take their blood. Ms. Liu refused to cooperate. The practitioners went on a hunger strike to protest the persecution.
The next morning, a total of eight doctors and nurses tried to inject an unknown drug into Ms. Liu. When she refused, a male doctor dragged her to the bed and tightly bound her. Another male doctor then knelt on her chest and hit her temple.
Ms. Liu was helpless in this position and they were able to intravenously give her the unknown drug for seven consecutive days. She eventually got out of the hospital with her strong righteous thoughts but was forced into homelessness.
Jiao Chunhong and Xiao Qiude from the Liuting Town Government went to Ms. Liu's husband's workplace and forced him to leave work in order to look for her. The police officers from the Chengyang District also went to the 49th Middle School of Qingdao City where Ms. Liu's son was and threatened him. They brought Ms. Liu's husband to Liuting Frontier Police Station where he suffered from abdominal pain because he got so angry.
In February 2002, when Ms. Liu, her elder sister Ms. Liu Xiuzhen, and Mr. Yang Naijian (Ms. Liu Xiuzhen's son) were distributing truth-clarification materials in Xianjiazhai Village, Liuting District, Qingdao City, they were reported to the police. Six militia members headed by the security director of Xianjiazhai Village and three policemen from Liuting Police Station then arrested them and brought them to Liuting Police Station. Mr. Yang Naijian was beaten and his face was covered with blood.
At the police station, the police held Ms. Liu's arms and seized her handbag. They deceived her into telling them her name. Then they handcuffed her and threw her into a small dark cell with bloodstains all over the walls. At night, they handcuffed her to the door of the cell and didn't allow her use the restroom.
On February 24, 2002, Ms. Liu Xiufang and Ms. Liu Xiuzhen were transferred to the Dashan Detention Center of Qingdao.
On March 19, Liuting Frontier police officer Wang Jizhu and officer Wang sent Ms. Liu and her sister to the Wangcun Forced Labor Camp. Ms. Liu was diagnosed with heart disease and high blood pressure during the medical check-up. The manager of the Wangcun Second Women's Forced Labor Camp refused to accept her. Wang Jizhu swore that he would send her in even if he had to spend his own money to bribe the labor camp. In the end, the police somehow made the labor camp accept Ms. Liu.
Ms. Liu held a hunger strike to protest the persecution. The prison guards encouraged other detainees to keep her awake day and night and deceive her into compromising. After she couldn't endure the torture, Ms. Liu signed the so-called three statements. The next day she realized that what she had done was wrong, but she didn't have the courage to withdraw her statements. The director and the associate director of the team forced her to do hard labor. She often had to work until 10:00 p.m. They also forced her to watch TV shows condemning Falun Gong and to write down her feelings after watching the shows. She had to finish the report no matter how late it was. Sometimes, she had to continue writing until midnight or into the next morning. The next morning, if what she wrote didn't satisfy the prison guard, she was required to rewrite it. While suffering both physically and mentally, Ms. Liu started to feel dizzy and became neurasthenic. Still, she had to continue working. When a guard brought her to the hospital for an exam, the doctor said she was fine. However, she got weaker and more fatigued. Later, a doctor performed an electrocardiogram on her and found a serious problem, and gave her medication. The forced labor camp had to contact Liuting Frontier Police Station, Liuting Police Station, and the Chengyang Police Division of Qingdao City.
To avoid being held responsible for her death, the forced labor camp ordered Ms. Liu's family to take her home on July 24.
At home, the officials from Shuangbu Village continued to harass Ms. Liu's family under pressure from the 610 Office. Wang Zhihong from the local 610 Office, along with Wang, the former head of Political and Security Section of Chengyang Police District, Chen Wen, director of Liuting Frontier Police Station, and officials from the town government disturbed Ms. Liu three times a day and ordered her to write a report.
In April 2006, policeman Wang Dong and another officer from Liuting Police Station went to Ms. Liu's home and ordered her to sign a document. Ms. Liu refused and instead told them the truth about Falun Gong. When they tried to badger her family into signing the document, Ms. Liu blocked them out of her door. Ten days later, Wang Dong and three other policemen secretly opened Ms. Liu's house door to spy on her.
On May 12, 2006, policemen from Liuting Frontier Police Station illegally arrested Ms. Liu Xiuzhen, her son Mr. Yang Naijian, and practitioner Yang Youfen. They beat Yang Naijian in public. Police officer Bai kneeled very hard on Mr. Yang's stomach. Then the police ransacked their homes.
At about 4:00 p.m. on May 15, police head Lu Weizhong along with six policemen went to Ms. Liu's home and ransacked it. They didn't find what they were looking for. On their way out, they saw a motorcycle in her yard and confiscated it.
On June 13, Lu Zhongwei along with officials of the 610 Office went to the Sea Science and Technology Museum where Ms. Liu Xiufang's son worked. They threatened the officials of the museum, saying, "His parents are Falun Gong practitioners. So is he. How could you hire such a person?" That afternoon, Ms. Liu's son was fired. Hua Chang, the political instructor at Liuting Frontier Police Station, had previously asked about where Ms. Liu's son worked and lived. Ms. Liu Xiufang has been forced to leave home again for the second time.
