Why Was a Six-year-old Girl Detained Twice?
(Clearwisdom.net) When Yuetong sees other kids with their parents, she thinks they really must be lucky. Those kids get to learn beautiful Tang dynasty poems and know where to buy delicious treats. However, they do not know about a brainwashing center in Changli County. Little Yuetong does know about it.
Guo Yuetong is a six-year-old girl in Changli County, Hebei Province. When Yuetong was one year old, she was detained in the brainwashing center for a long time. At present, five years later, she is again detained there.
Yuetong's parents, Mrs. Liu Aihua and Mr. Guo Yuting, are Falun Gong practitioners in Changli County, Qinhuangdao City, Hebei Province. When Yuetong was born, Jiang's regime started to rampantly persecute Falun Gong practitioners. Because Yuetong's mother did not give up being a good person according to the principle of "Truthfulness, Compassion, Tolerance," the local officials detained Yuetong and her mother in the notorious Changli Brainwashing Center. At that time, Yuetong was just one year old.
In the Changli Brainwashing Center, Falun Gong practitioners are detained in cells without windows. In the same cell, they eat, drink and use the toilet. In order to force Falun Gong practitioners to give up their beliefs, the guards of the brainwashing center force them to watch defamatory videos and read books full of lies. In addition, they torture practitioners via all kinds of means: sleep deprivation, handcuffing and shackling them, shocking them with electric batons when their hands are handcuffed behind their backs and their mouths are covered in tape, or their hands are handcuffed to the windows and doors, beating them with rubber batons, forcing them to run in circles, and forced feeding. Every day, Yuetong's mother and other practitioners were tortured both mentally and physically.
Whenever the guards tortured her mother, Yuetong was so scared that she hid in the corner and cried. When no wicked guards were shouting and her mom was not taken away for torture, little Yuetong just looked out through the iron bars of the cell.
Later, the persecution against Yuetong and her mother was exposed. Many people in the world found out about this case, and the local officials had to release them. At that time, Yuetong was only three years old.
After her release, little Yuetong saw her dad, Guo Yuting. At that time, her father could not walk due to injuries suffered in the persecution. The long-term separation made Yuetong not recognize her father. However, just when little Yuetong got used to calling him "dad," the guards of the brainwashing center broke into her home and took her father away again.
Later, he was released and their family was reunited again. Yuetong was very happy. However, the good situation did not last long. This May, Yuetong and her parents were again arrested and taken to the brainwashing center.
Yuetong wants to go home, and she wants to go home with her parents. She is already old enough to attend school, and she should go to school.
