(Clearwisdom.net) Practitioner Ms. Song Jinlai is from Tianheng Town, Jimo City, Shandong Province. Because she refused to give up her practice of Falun Gong and followed the principle of "Truthfulness-Compassion-Tolerance," she has suffered persecution and is currently detained in Wangcun Women's Forced Labor Camp in Zibo City. Her parents and relatives went to the labor camp many times but were not allowed to see her. She didn't even have a chance to see her parents before they passed away.

Ms. Song Jinlai was arrested in November 2000 when she was distributing truth-clarifying materials in Duancun, Jimo City. Later she was sent to the brainwashing center in Qingdao City. Since she refused to be brainwashed, Lin Yonglin from Jimo City's 610 Office and others sent her to Wangcun Women's Forced Labor Camp in Zibo City without following any legal procedures. One week later, some people from Jimo City's 610 Office told Ms. Song's mother to sign on a piece of paper. She was over 80 years old and didn't know any words, but she refused their demand.

Ms. Song has been in the forced labor camp for one and a half years. Her family members have been to the labor camp several times but no one have ever been allowed to see her.

The guards in the labor camp are very rude. They rejected family members' requests to visit Ms. Song and threw away the clothes and food that they had brought for her. The guards dragged Ms. Song's family members out through the gates of the labor camp and then closed the gates behind them.

In April 2006, when her family members came to visit her again, the guards even refused to open the gate. When they heard the bell at the gate, they looked at the visitors through the small hole on the gate to see who had come to visit, and then they simply shut off the small hole. No matter how hard or how long the family members rang the bell, the guards refused to open the gate.

Song Jinlai's father was over 80 years old. When she had to leave home and move from place to place to avoid arrest, the local police and 610 Office kept harassing and threatening her parents. Ms. Song's father died during that time. Her mother was originally in good health, but when she learned that her daughter was in the forced labor camp, she got sick and never recovered. The couple was unable to see their daughter for the last time before they died. A good family was thus destroyed. The only survivor is Song Jinlai, who is still being persecuted.

We hope that righteous people will stand up and help stop the CCP's brutal persecution of Falun Gong practitioners and enable those kind and innocent people to regain their freedom soon.
