(Clearwisdom.net) In May, Falun Dafa practitioner Liu Xiaoming, from Changsha City, Hunan Province, was illegally arrested by the police. Ms. Liu has since gone on a hunger strike to protest against the illegal detention and persecution. Rescue efforts are urgently needed.

Liu Xiaoming was a caregiver for eighty-year-old teacher Tang Xi of the Zhongnan Forestry Technology Institution. At around 10 o’clock on May 22, Ms. Liu was in the institution’s treatment center. She was looking after Mr. Tang while Mr. Tang was hooked up to an IV. Ms. Liu took out a copy of Zhuan Falun. A staff member saw her and reported her to the authorities.

On the same morning, police from the Xinkaipu Police Station confiscated Ms. Liu's belongings from Mr. Tang’s house. They took away all of his Falun Dafa books and ten copies of truth-clarification booklets and arrested Liu Xiaoming. Ms. Liu may be detained at the Changsha City Detention Center.

In early June, two policemen came to Mr. Tang’s house for a so-called "visit." They said that Ms. Liu is "very stubborn" and refused to tell them the source of her truth-clarification materials. The police said that she was on a hunger strike.

Liu Xiaoming works very hard at Tang Xi’s house and Mr. Tang had a very good impression of her. The police’s arrest of Ms. Liu and the confiscation of her belongings from Tang’s house made Mr. Tang feel very revolted.
