Facts of the Persecution
1. Mrs. Li Guijuan Suffering Persecution in the Brainwashing Center in Weifang City, Shandong Province
Mrs. Li Guijuan, a Falun Dafa practitioner, was a Chinese teacher in the Heqiao Elementary School in the Kuiwen area of Weifang City. She was reported to the authorities by a student's parent (who was poisoned by the lies and slander of the Chinese Communist Party) after clarifying the truth of Falun Dafa to her students. Mrs. Li was illegally arrested by a police officer on April 29, 2005. She is currently suffering persecution in a 610 Office brainwashing class in Weifang City. The school was forced to supply a staff member to participate in this persecution.
2. Ms. Sun Xiuzhi Abducted and Taken to Harbin Women's Drug Rehabilitation Center
In February 2003, when Ms. Sun Xiuzhi, a practitioner from Zhangxin Mine, Jixi City, Heilongjiang Province, saw a slogan that defamed Falun Dafa, she stepped forward to remove it. For doing this, she was illegally arrested by Public Safety Bureau officers from Jixi City in the Hengshan Area. She was taken to the Jixi Detention Center that same evening, where she was illegally sentenced to two years in prison. Ms. Sun was sent to the Harbin Women's Drug Rehabilitation Center on March 12, 2003. She has been tortured in the basement there on many occasions since her incarceration began. Despite being tortured horribly, she has remained firm in her belief in Falun Dafa. Even though the expiration day of her prison sentence was March 11, 2005, Harbin Women's Drug Rehabilitation Center officials have not yet released Ms. Sun. It is now over two months since her sentence officially ended.
3. Practitioner Ms. Fu Rufen From Chongqing City Exposes the Persecution She Suffered
My name is Fu Rufen. I am 55 years old and was educated as far as middle school. I am a village doctor, and I used to be a Women's Director in my village. I live in Shouqiao Village, Xiaodu Town, Tongnan County, Chongqing City. I was arrested twice since the persecution began on July 20, 1999, because I persisted in practicing Falun Dafa, which teaches me to be a good person. On one occasion, I was unlawfully arrested and held for 725 days, including time in a forced labor camp. While I was in prison, I suffered kicks to my chest, verbal abuse, being suspended by handcuffs, being tied up, being force-fed, and having to do forced labor, as well as other punishments. My family was harassed endlessly. Since my release I have become destitute and have now been homeless for more than a year. Over a five-year period, several police officers from the Beijing Production Team participated in my torture. During this time I suffered severe persecution both physically and mentally. As a result of this persecution, I have now been separated from my family and have nowhere to live.
