Zhangjiakou City, Hebei Province: Overview of the Persecution During the Past Seven Years
(Clearwisdom.net) The Dafa practitioners in Zhangjiakou City have experienced random and irrational illegal persecution by the evil communist party for a while. However, relying on our strong faith in Master and Dafa, we are becoming more and more steadfast and mature on our paths of cultivation. For the purpose of saving the sentient beings who are poisoned by the evil party, we are exposing the persecution taking place in Huailai County.
The earliest Dafa practitioners in our county were from Beixinbao Township. Before the persecution began on July 20, 1999, there were over 1700 practitioners in the entire county. After July 20, our practitioners went to Beijing to appeal to the government one after the other. Many practitioners were tortured physically and spiritually, and suffered economic hardships.
I. Tortured to Death
Dafa practitioner Chen Yunchuan's family was from Canfangying Village, Beixinbao Township. All five people in his family cultivated diligently after obtaining the Fa. After July 20, 1999, their whole family went to Beijing to appeal. They were illegally arrested by police from the Tiananmen Police Station. Chen Yunchuan's oldest son Chen Aizhong, youngest son Chen Aili, and daughter Chen Hongping were all tortured to death. His wife passed away while they were homeless. His oldest daughter Chen Shulan is married and lives in Yanqing County. She practices Dafa and was arrested and held in the local prison there.
Dafa practitioner Yan Haiyin from Tumu Village went to Beijing to appeal, and was arrested and tortured to death by police.
Practitioner Yang Guibao from Beixinbao Township went to Beijing to appeal and was arrested and tortured to death.
Being horrified and threatened frequently, practitioners Kang Delian from Xinbaoandongyuan Village and Gao Shuying from Huangjiachong Village, Beixinbao Township suffered so much that they too passed away.
Within the few years from July 20, 1999 to now, the evil party's persecution of ones who believe in "Truthfulness, Compassion, Forbearance" has caused eight Dafa practitioners to loose their precious lives.
II. Illegal Arrests and Sentences
All five people in Liu Yushu's family practice Falun Dafa. Because Liu Yudong persisted in practicing Dafa, and since the police in Tumu Township were afraid of Dafa practitioners going to appeal, they illegally arrested Liu Yushu. Liu was put in the township police station and was guarded closely. He was also forced to sign the three statements. Later Liu was put into a detention center. During the cold winter, the police took him outside, removed all of his clothes, and poured cold water on to him from the top of his head to his feet. His body was soon covered in ice. After leaving the detention center, in 2004, the police at the Tumu Township Police Station again captured him and tried to force him to sign the three statements. Liu refused, and was sent to a brainwashing center in Shalingzi, where he is still being tortured. Liu's oldest daughter Liu Zhaoxia went to Beijing to appeal and was arrested. She then walked out of the jail with her righteous thoughts. While she was clarifying the truth and passing out truth-clarification materials, she was arrested again and illegally given a five year sentence. Liu's second daughter Liu Zhaohong practices Falun Dafa. Her husband was deceived by the propaganda and divorced her. Later in 2001 when clarifying the truth, she was arrested and illegally sentenced to four years. Liu's second son worked in a hospital. Because he practices Dafa, the police attempted to arrest him. Some good people warned him and he got away. He became homeless and was later arrested, illegally sentenced, and is still in jail as of today.
