Ms. Jiang Hong from Gongan County, Hubei Province Was Arrested for the Seventh Time
(Clearwisdom.net) On April 25, 2005, at about 3 p.m., Gongan County policemen Xiang Xiaoyang, Yuan Danqiang, Yang Jianwen, and gang member Ye Chao broke into the home of Dafa disciple Jiang Hong and confiscated her personal property. They took her to the county detention center to be persecuted. It has been reported that because of practicing Falun Dafa and clarifying the truth of Dafa to the public, Jiang Hong has already been arrested and imprisoned seven times.
Ms. Jiang Hong, 48 years old, a former employee of a construction company in Gongan County, started to practice Falun Dafa in May 1996. After practicing cultivation, she became healthy both in mind and body. She has benefited significantly. She introduced the beauty and goodness of Dafa to her relatives and friends.
On July 20, 1999, Jiang Zemin's group launched a full-scale suppression of Falun Gong in China. On September 17, 1999, Jiang Hong went to Beijing to appeal. As soon as she settled down in Liangshan, a Beijing suburb, she was arrested by the local police because of her landlord's reporting her. At the Beijing office of Jingzhou District, Jiang Hong was tied to a big column for fifteen hours, where she was left exposed to the elements and mosquitoes all night. The police punched and kicked her, and confiscated over 400 yuan in cash and a watch from her.
Gongan County policemen Xia Dong and Ao Hongmei flew to Beijing to take Jiang Hong back to Gongan County. She was put into the Second Detention Center for more than one month, during which time Jiang Hong clarified the truth to prison guards and prisoners and helped many people know that Falun Dafa is good. Later, the Gongan County police released her after fining her employer over 6,000 yuan.
After Jiang Hong went home, the police continued their surveillance of her. After the police knew that she clarified the truth to her supervisor, they arrested her at her small store and imprisoned her in the detention center. The police also confiscated some of her Dafa books. They released her after more than a month of imprisonment.
After getting out, Jiang Hong went to the police station to request the return of her Dafa books. The police imprisoned her in the detention center again for more than a month, and extorted more than 1000 yuan from her family.
Soon after, when Jiang Hong clarified the truth in the town of Nanping, somebody reported her to the police. She was arrested by Liao Xuesheng and Yang Liangfu, and imprisoned again in the detention center.
On November 26, 2000, when Jiang Hong clarified the truth in Henggou Town of Shishou City, she was arrested and imprisoned in the Shishou City Detention Center for one week. Then she was sent back to Gongan Detention Center. Jiang Hong went on hunger strike for nine days, requesting to be released unconditionally. On March 15, 2001, the police sent her to the ninth brigade of Shayang Labor Camp in Hubei Province for a one-year prison term.
The labor camp conducted brainwashing on her. Former practitioners who had turned against Dafa tried to deceive Jiang Hong with twisted logic and lies, but she remained steadfast. The police arranged several drug addicts to monitor Jiang Hong. Whenever they saw her practice Falun Gong, they beat her. Whenever they heard her reciting Master's Fa, they used a toothbrush to strike her mouth. Police Chief Gong Shanxiu said, "If a Falun Gong practitioner is killed, it doesn't matter, it will be cleared up in three days." One time, policeman He wanted Jiang Hong to write something disrespectful about Dafa, but she refused. Consequently, six or seven policemen rushed to strike her with electric batons and punch her. Jiang Hong warned them sternly, "Good will be rewarded with good and evil with evil--that is the heavenly law." Only then did they stop doing their wicked deeds. In November 2001, Jiang Hong was put into solitary confinement. Two collaborators and one drug addict conducted brainwashing on her. After the labor camp failed to brainwash her, they postponed her imprisonment. They released her on December 5, 2001.
On March 6, 2003, while Jiang Hong clarified the truth at Chibi, Hubei Province, she was arrested again. They confiscated her 350 yuan in cash, cellular phone and her copy of the book Zhuan Falun. On March 24, Gongan County police sent Jiang Hong to the second brigade of Shayang Labor Camp for another one-year term. In the labor camp, one prison guard and two drug addicts monitored her, compelling her to write a so-called "guarantee to disassociate with Falun Gong." She did not comply. The police did not permit Jiang Hong to sleep for nineteen days, and forced her to stand bent over at the waist with a pot of water on her back. She clarified the truth to the police and monitors. They refused to listen, and beat and scolded her. As a result of the long-term persecution by the police and criminals, Jiang Hong's hearing and vision were seriously damaged, and her body and mind were devastated.
At about 3 p.m. on April 25, 2005, Jiang Hong was once again arrested from her home by Gongan County police Xiang Xiaoyang, Yuan Danqiang, Yang Jianwen and gang member Ye Chao.
We strongly appeal to the National Security Department in Gongan County to unconditionally release Dafa disciple Jiang Hong.
