Falun Dafa Practitioner Ms. Li Guangxiu From Hechuan, Chongqing City Illegally Held for Five Years
Dafa practitioner Ms. Li Guangxiu, 58 years old, lived in Hechuan, Chongqing City. She went to Beijing to appeal for Dafa in April 2000 and was illegally detained for 18 days.

They sent her to the Chongqing City Women's Labor Camp where she was savagely tortured. After her labor camp term expired, Li Guangxiu was sent to a brainwashing center and has been there up until now.
