(Clearwisdom.net) Falun Gong practitioners Mr. Cao Huashan and his wife Li Shulian of Yanan City, Shaanxi Province, have been persecuted many times. When unlawfully detained at a forced labor camp, Mr. and Mrs. Cao protested by hunger striking for 40 days and 90 days respectively. Now they are both critically ill and near death. It is urgent that they be released from detention.

Dafa practitioner Mr. Cao Huashan, a chemistry teacher at Yanan Middle School, was deeply respected by both students and colleagues. He was awarded prizes many times for his calligraphy artwork. As a practitioner of Falun Gong, Mr. Cao adhered to the principles of Truthfulness - Compassion - Forbearance and was highly regarded as a good person. His wife is also a Dafa practitioner. Together, they were very happy.

After July 20, 1999, when the persecution first began, Mr. and Mrs. Cao went to Beijing to ask for the ban on Falun Gong to be lifted. They were arrested and sent back to Yanan City. From then on, Wang Xia, Secretary General of the City Committee (she is also a Shaanxi Provincial Committee member), has done everything possible to persecute Mr. Cao Huashan and Ms. Li Shulian.

Wang Xia sent Mr. Cao to Zaozihe Forced Labor Camp. Mr. Cao conducted hunger strikes to protest the persecution. However, he was transferred from Brigade No.1 to Brigade No.4, where the persecution was stepped up. Policeman Feng Xiyao of Brigade No. 4 directed the criminal inmates to torture Mr. Cao. In the guise of treating Mr. Cao's hemorrhoids, convicts Ge Zhengui, Zhang Pingshe, and others devastated him so much he became one of the most severely persecuted practitioners in Brigade No. 4 history. His treatment at Zaozihe Forced Labor Camp has been reported on the Clearwisdom website.

When Mr. Cao returned home from Zaozihe Forced Labor Camp, he and his wife were watched closely and repeatedly harassed. In desperation, Mr. and Mrs. Cao decided to go to Yulin City to find work. When Wangxia found that the couple had left town, she angrily ordered her staff to "catch Cao Huashan and Li Shulian at any cost." Later, Mr. Cao Huashan, Ms. Li Shulian, and their 19-year-old son were found in Yulin City and arrested. Mr. and Mrs. Cao were again sent to forced labor camps without any legal procedure. Not even their family members were notified of their arrest.

Currently, Mr. Cao Huashan and Ms. Li Shulian are suffering persecution in the Zaozihe Forced Labor Camp and Shaanxi Provincial Women's Forced Labor Camp. At the time of this report, Mr. Cao Huashan has spent more than 40 days on hunger strike. His life is in critical condition.

Meanwhile, at Shaanxi Provincial Women's Forced Labor Camp, Ms. Li Shulian has been on hunger strike for more than 90 days. During brutal forced feedings, the camp personnel have knocked out several of Ms. Li's front teeth. She is skeletal and near-death. Her family is not allowed to visit her.
