It was learned that this particular Li does not have any land and has in fact been working in a factory in the South of the River area to support his family.

A letter from Ms. Zhang Cuiying to German People from all walks of life. Because I peacefully appealed for Falun Gong, I have been arrested 4 times in China and detained for 8 months. During that time I was mistreated and suffered brutal torture. Now I'm holding art exhibitions in many cities in Germany, because Jiang is visiting Germany. Also, the 58th Session of the Human Rights Commission is being held in Geneva. I would like to let people all over the world know about the human rights violations performed by the Jiang government towards Falun Gong practitioners. At the same time, I cordially ask you to help stop as soon as possible, the tragedy that is happening in our modern society.
The cultivation stories of the 16 members in our family (3). My elder brother is majoring in computer science. His life and work have been going very smoothly. But the frame of the positive science made it very hard for him to accept things that are intangible or invisible. He only considered our devotion in Falun Dafa as something superstitious. But his mother, a practitioner lives with him. She let him indeed experience the wonderfulness of Dafa. Finally, he had a chance to read Zhuan Falun from the beginning to the end. Soon after, he claimed solemnly: "I have decided to cultivate Falun Gong!" From then on, my elder brother who needs to go to Mainland China to do business, always tries his best to clarify the truth to the local people and to eliminate the evil.
