(Clearwisdom.net) Over six years ago Jiang Zemin and the Communist Party launched the persecution of Falun Gong on July 20, 1999. During this time, practitioners from Chuxiong have exposed the persecution, clarified the facts, and established home-based Falun Dafa materials production sites everywhere in the urban district. A banner with "Falun Dafa is Great" was hung on the highest peak of West Mountain at the Gao Ding Temple. Agents of the Chinese Communist Party illegally arrested the practitioners and searched their families' properties. The following is a brief summary of the persecution the practitioners in the Chuxiong area have had to endure.

Ms. Liu Zhiping was arrested in June 2004 because she clarified the facts at work. She was unconstitutionally sentenced to one-and-a-half years in a forced labor camp and hasn't yet been released.

Mr. Dong Guozhao was deceived into showing up at a police department after distributing truth-clarifying material. The incident happened on January 18, 2005. The authorities sentenced him to three years in a forced labor camp.

Ms. Zhu Lan was arrested on January 18, 2005 for writing a letter to the provincial communist regime reflecting on the facts of the persecution of Dafa practitioners in the Chuxiong area. The authorities sentenced her to six years in prison.

Tang Rui was a coordinator who was arrested on trumped-up charges on January 18, 2005 and "illegally sentenced" to two years of incarceration.

Wan Guoliang was arrested on March 26, 2005 and sentenced to four years of imprisonment for clarifying the facts and disseminating truth-clarifying materials.

Deng Lihua was arrested on December 2004 and sentenced to four years of incarceration for disseminating truth-clarifying materials.

Ms. Liao Liqing was arrested on January 24, 2005 and sentenced to one-and-a half years, in addition to her previous sentence of three years of probation, amounting to four-and-a-half years in total. This happened because she clarified the truth to people.

Hou Fayong was arrested on February 26, 2005 and was illegally sentenced to four years of imprisonment for handing out truth clarification materials.

Other practitioners arrested for clarifying the facts included Shi Shaowei and his wife Cai Shufen, Huang Ping, Wu Baoyuan, and others. Most of the above-named practitioners have been sentenced to forced labor for the second or the third time.

Ms. Wang Meiling and her daughter Hong Yizhao left home in a hurry in 2001 to prevent being sent to a brainwashing center. They had been homeless for over a year-and-a-half when they were arrested. The arrest happened on July 14, 2004, on Kunming Street, as they were handing out truth clarification materials. Both were sentenced to three years in a forced labor camp. Her daughter was released after three years and sent back to the Chuxiong Songshulin School to work. Communist regime agents from the 610 Office didn't sanction her re-employment as a teacher at the school and assigned her a janitorial position instead. So far she has not seen a single paycheck. Her mother, Ms. Wang Meiling, is still imprisoned in the forced labor camp. When the labor camp guards forced her to watch a video slandering Dafa, she shouted, "Falun Dafa is great!"

Ms. Wang used a loudspeaker to shout, "Falun Dafa is great! Teacher is great!" when Teacher and Dafa were slandered. She was arrested in 2002 and sentenced to a forced labor camp for two years.

Police and local officials searched the following families in 2002: Li Qiongzhen, Ren Benhui, Bai Peichun, Zhang Guofen, Ms. Xu Lijuan. Each was illegally sentenced to forced labor for one year, two years or two and a half years. After Ms. Xu Lijuan had endured three years of forced labor and returned home, she was fired from her government staff position.

I am exposing these incidents of persecution to help more people see the Chinese Communist Party's evildoing nature.
