Facts of the Persecution
1. Beijing Police from the Shijingshan District National Security Team Continue to Severely Persecute Practitioners
Liu Yang, Yang Haifei and policemen from the Shijingshan District National Security Team in Beijing have always been on the forefront of the persecution of Dafa practitioners. They illegally searched practitioner Xu Yanli's house and confiscated her personal property on July 5. Practitioner Gong Xiurong was abducted in Bajiao District by Liu Yang and Yang Haifei in June of 2005 and unlawfully sentenced to two years of forced labor.
2. Exposing the Torture of Falun Dafa Practitioners in the Daqing Prison
Falun Dafa practitioners in Daqing City, Heilongjiang Province exposed the torture of practitioners in Daqing Prison. The perpetrators in Daqing Prison killed three practitioners, Yu Yongquan, Wang Hongde and Xu Jishan. Several more practitioners were subjected to cruel torture. For example, guards hit Zhu Hongbing, who works in the oil factory in Daqing City; as a result his lung became infected in September. He was sent to a hospital where a tube was inserted to allow the infection to drain. He was in a coma for 24 days. Another example of abuse took place in December of 2002, when practitioner Zhang Xingye's clothes were completely torn to pieces and he suffered humiliation and physical torture as he was lifted naked by two persecutors. He was subjected to exposure to freezing winds in minus 200C conditions for three days until he lost consciousness. In the fall of 2003, policemen from Daqing Prison instigated convicts to tie Guan Zhaoqi, Jin Sheng and Zhao Yuan to a cross. We appeal for the just punishment of the murderers who killed Yu Yongquan, Wang Hongde and Xu Jishan, and we affirm that the time has come to bring all the perpetrators of the persecution to justice. We call on the perpetrators to stop the persecution, release all the practitioners who are illegally incarcerated, and restore their reputation.
3. Lu Xiuying of Jinzhou City, Liaoning Province Has Been Homeless for More Than Three Years
The authorities illegally arrested practitioner Ms. Lu Xiuying from Jinzhou City, Liaoning Province on three different occasions because she continued to steadfastly practice Falun Dafa. She was tortured at the Masanjia Forced Labor Camp twice. Lu Xiuying can't return to her own home at present, in order to avoid Jiang Zemin's brutal persecution. She was compelled to become destitute and homeless, a state she has suffered for more than three years. After she began to practice Falun Dafa, several of Ms. Lu's diseases were cured without medication and she no longer had a bad temper. In 1999 and 2000, after the persecution started, Ms. Lu went to Beijing to appeal for justice for Falun Dafa and suffered cruel persecution at the Masanjia Forced Labor Camp. In December of 2001, she was sentenced to three years in the Masanjia Forced Labor Camp again because she distributed truth-clarifying materials. Her family heard nothing from her during that time. While she was there, Lu Xiuying was tortured to the point that she became ill. She escaped while the persecutors were taking her to the hospital.
