(Clearwisdom.net) Practitioner Hu Yuxiang is a teacher from Chaoyang Township, Zhaozhou County, Daqing City. She was in ill health before and could not be cured. After practicing Falun Dafa she recovered fully. She became more amiable, especially towards her mother-in-law. The mother-in-law always boasted to fellow villagers. "After my daughter-in-law took up practicing Falun Gong, she totally changed. She is really good in every aspect." Many fellow villagers agree that Falun Dafa is good, and want to practice. Yuxiang's husband is Nie Shuzhong. They have a lovely son. After he saw his wife's improvement both mentally and physically, he was full of joy. But after July 20th, 1999, when the persecution of Falun Gong started, their happy and harmonious family has been in turmoil.

In December 2000, Hu Yuxiang was arrested and sent to Daqing City's liaison office in Beijing because she appealed for an end to the persecution. The office notified her local police station to pick her up. The chief of the police station, Gao You, cheated Nie Shuzhong out of 3000 Yuan (This is a large sum of money for a farmer; 500 Yuan is the average monthly income for an urban worker in China), claiming it was for picking up Hu Yuxiang from Beijing. Then Gao visited the township's Party secretary, Liang Xueyi, demanding money, saying that they will go to Beijing to pick up Hu Yuxiang. Liang Xueyi told Chen Jun to pay the money, saying, "You can pay the money beforehand. When Hu Yuxiang comes back, it is still on them (Hu's family) to pay." Then they left for Beijing.

When Hu came back, some work units kept demanding money from Nie Shuzhong. As a result, Nie sustained a heavy financial burden. Since Hu held to her belief and never yielded to the evil, she was sentenced to 2 years of forced labor, causing Nie Shuzhong huge mental pressure.

Then the civil administrator in Chaoyang Township, together with Nie Shuzhong, went to the detention center to go through divorce procedures for the couple. When Nie Shuzhong presented a divorce certificate, everybody stopped demanding money from him since it was written on the certificate: Hu Yuxiang is responsible for paying the debt. Their divorce was completely forced. Both of their parents were opposed. Hu Yuxiang never violated any law and never committed any crime. She was threatened, detained, and sentenced to a labor camp. What on earth is happening in China?

Actually, Nie Shuzhong had been waiting for Hu to come back. During that time, it is hard to imagine the pressure he endured. Many people in the township government kept pressuring him to find a new wife to look after him, but he rejected that idea.

At last Nie Shuzhong withstood all the pressure and remarried Hu Yuxiang, who never gave up her belief in " Truthfulness, Compassion, Forbearance."

In fact, Falun Gong practitioners benefit a great deal from practicing and truly believe Falun Gong is good. Otherwise, why would they incur the horrible costs of going to Beijing to appeal for Falun Gong? If Falun Gong were not good, even if they were paid, they would never do that. Can you imagine the risks of being arrested, beaten, sentenced to a labor camp, tortured, sentenced to prison or losing their lives?

In order to persecute Falun Gong, Jiang Zeming employed many shady methods. If a person goes to Beijing to appeal, the local officials are investigated, fined, punished, or even dismissed, as if they had any control over the actions of individuals. The fear of personal loss made them choose to take action against the innocent Falun Gong practitioners. He coerced every level of government into persecuting Falun Gong. However, people are quite clear that their family members benefitted from Falun Gong. Can Jiang carry out the persecution much longer when people see through his money, pressure, seduction and lies?

This is a list of perpetrators from Hu's working unit. (country code: 86, area code: 459)
