(Clearwisdom.net) My mother's name is Pu Yu. She is a Falun Dafa practitioner in Panjin City, Liaoning Province. I am Xiao Liang, male, 13 years old.

On August 18, 2008 at 7:00 a.m., it was raining heavily. I went to buy something for breakfast before school. Before I arrived at the place that sells breakfast, two policemen suddenly stopped me and asked me if my mother was at home and what time she goes to work. Then they asked for my home key. I said that I didn't have one. They searched my body and then pushed me into their police car. I was so afraid that my legs became weak. In the car, they asked me many other questions that I could not answer.

After I had stayed quite a long time in the car, I saw a jeep arrive outside my home. People from the jeep put a folding ladder under a window of our home. Two policemen climbed up the ladder, broke the window and entered.

After a while, several policewomen arrived. After a short while, they carried my mother, who was wrapped in a blanket, into a police car, and drove away immediately.

It was raining hard and I was trembling inside the car.

After that, I saw seven or eight people moving things from our home to a car. They released me after they had finished.

I was kept in the police car for three hours. What is the difference between these people and bandits?

The 22nd was Friday, a day that my mother was entitled to have visitors. My grandma and I went to Panjin Detention Center, but they didn't let us see her. I haven't seen my mother for five days. What crime did my mother commit by practicing Falun Gong? All practitioners of Falun Gong are good people. They try to be good people by following Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance. What's wrong with that? Why are the police, who are suppose to serve the people, actually persecuting good people?

My parents divorced eight years ago. My father doesn't take responsibility for raising me. My mother is the one who works and supports me. Now she has been arrested, and I have only my grandmother, who is over 70 years old, to take care of me. A new semester is starting soon. How can I pay the school fee when my mother is not able to work?

I want my mother back! I want to go to school!
