On July 26, 2008, police from the Jiefangbei Police Station, in Yuzhong District, Chongqing City went to the home of Ms. Xu Wenxiu and demanded that she not go out during the Beijing Olympic Games. On the morning of August 1, 2008, Ms. Xu was arrested simply because she went out to buy stamps. The police also searched her home.

On August 4, 2008, the police station showed a sentencing document to Ms. Xu Wenxiu and ordered her to sign the document, but Ms. Xu refused. The Yuzhong District Politics and Law Committee, the 610 Office, and the Jiefangbei Neighborhood Committee then dispatched people to take Ms. Xu to the "Training Center" in Nanan District for brainwashing. She was held until October 6, 2008.

Due to persecution in the brainwashing center, Ms. Xu Wenxiu's legs became painfully swollen, and her hands and feet can no longer perform basic movements. The police station and neighborhood committee also dispatched people to engage in long-term surveillance of Ms. Xu's home.
