Ms. Li Guangzhen, 52 years old, was an outstanding teacher of Machang Town Center Primary School, Jianping County, Liaoning Province. Her husband Zhou Xirong is an English teacher in Machang Town Middle School. Because they are firm in practicing Falun Dafa, their house was searched many times by the police.
