(Clearwisdom.net) Sixty-seven year-old Falun Dafa practitioner Ms. Zhang Xiangfeng lives in Youshimei Development Building 7, Unit 802, Wanke Garden Community, Qibao Town, Shanghai. Since September 25, police officers from the Qibao Town Police Station and staff from the Wanke Neighborhood Committee have been following her every move. Taking shifts they watch her constantly, around the clock.

The police officers and committee staff members station themselves under the pavilion in the community common area. They sometimes sit directly in the doorway of Building No. 7. Whenever Ms. Zhang leaves her home, they follow her. They even follow her when she does her grocery shopping. One day they followed her to her son's house when she was visiting, and then followed her back home when she left.

Ms. Zhang started practicing Falun Dafa in 1995. She embraces "Truthfulness-Benevolence-Forbearance," and personally experiences the wonders of Falun Dafa and the purification of mind and body. She has a good reputation and is much liked in her community. However, this gentle senior citizen has been subjected to persecution since the Chinese Communist Party began suppressing Falun Gong in 1999.

From October 2000 to October 2002, Ms. Zhang Xiangfeng was imprisoned for practicing Falun Dafa. During those two years, she was subjected to forced labor and brainwashing at the Shanghai Qingpu Women's Forced Labor Camp. She got sick at the camp due to overwork and developed high blood pressure as a result of the stress. Her blood pressure was consistently 200mm or higher. She also developed coronary heart disease, and her feet swelled to the point that the skin on her feet looked transparent. The administrative staff of the camp disregarded her ill-health and forced her to continue working.

From October 2004 to October 2005, Ms. Zhang was again imprisoned for one year at the Shanghai Minhang Forced Labor Camp. Two criminals who were drug offenders were ordered by the prison officers to closely follow Ms. Zhang each day and night for the entire year. Thus, Ms. Zhang suffered mental and physical abuse.

One night in May 2006, Ms. Zhang was arrested in her home as she lay sleeping. The police ransacked her home and took her computer, her printer, and her Falun Dafa books. Her grandson lived with her and was also arrested. When she was detained in Minhang Detention Center, she went on a hunger strike to protest the unjust incarceration. She was then brutally force-fed twice at the Shanghai Tilanqiao Prison Hospital. After 28 days in prison, Ms. Zhang was released on bail due to her high blood pressure and coronary heart disease.
