(Clearwisdom.net) Wu Rong, 6 years old, is from Changzhou City, Jiangsu Province. He lives with his mother Zhang Wuying, who is a Falun Dafa practitioner. His father Wu Dianhui, born in September 1972, was also a Falun Dafa practitioner. Wu Dianhui was persecuted by the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) for a long time and passed away on February 11, 2006.
Wu Rong's parents were teachers at the Changzhou City Teachers College, which was merged with the Changzhou Institute of Technology in 2003. After the persecution began on July 20, 1999, his parents were brutally persecuted by the Chinese Communist Party because they practiced Falun Dafa.
The former President of the Changzhou City Teachers College, Li Minmin, conspired with the Changzhou City National Security Bureau, the Changzhou City 610 Office, the Changzhou City Police Department and the Human Resource Department of the Changzhou City Education Committee to actively persecute Wu Dianhui and his wife. When Wu Rong's mother was still pregnant with him, Li Minmin terminated Wu Dianhui and his wife's teaching positions. Wu Dianhui was assigned to chop trees, clean the restroom and pick up trash in the general affairs office of the school, while Zhang Wuying was forced to work in the copy room. Her work unit officials threatened that they would let her inhale toxic air during her pregnancy to harm the baby. Zhang Wuying worked in the copy room for four years, including her pregnancy and breast-feeding period.
The school also refused to pay the 100,000 yuan home loan compensation, to which they were entitled based on the Talent Introduction Agreements. The school also delayed to report his employment information to higher level authorities and did not pay their salary. Instead, every month the school lent them 600 yuan as a "temporary loan to cover living expenses." In order to monitor them and limit their freedom, Li Minin conspired with the Changzhou City Police Department to illegally deprive them of the freedom to rent a room outside the school. They forced the couple to live in the school dormitory.
When Zhang Wuying was pregnant, the police from the local police station tortured her by repeatedly forcing her to stand all night. Zhang Wuying was also beaten by plainclothes police when she went to the State Council's appeals office to appeal for Falun Gong. When she was four months pregnant, the president of the Changzhou City Teachers College and the leader of the Changzhou City Education Committee sent her husband to the Changzhou City Military 121 Mental Hospital for torture. While Zhang Wuying was pregnant, the doctors and nurses tied her limbs to the bed and gave her forced injections.
Before Wu Rong was born, his parents were frequently illegally detained by the Changzhou City authorities. Just two months before his birth, when his mother really needed care, his father Wu Dianhui was illegally detained for one month by the Changzhou City Police Department. When Wu Rong was born, his parents had only ten yuan left, due to the persecution. Thanks to fellow practitioners' help, they able to survive during these few years, but they have suffered a great deal of hardship.
When Wu Rong was born at the gynecological hospital, Li Minmin sent some staff from the school to monitor his parents. When Wu Rong left the hospital to go home, they did not allow anyone to visit the newborn baby and his mother. Fifty-six days after Wu Rong was born, his parents took him back to his hometown in Shandong Province. Six months after that, they went back to Changzhou City again. During the trip, they were chased by the police from Changzhou City and arrested by the police from Shandong Province. Each time little Wu Rong was badly frightened. During the arrest when they traveled back to Changzhou City, Wu Rong's head and legs were hurt by the door of the police vehicle. Wu Dianhui and wife exposed the crimes of the police in the front of the surrounding people, but the police fabricated a new charge against them.
On May 1, 2001, on Wu Dianhui's way back home after visiting his classmates, he was secretly arrested and taken to the Fangqiang Farm, Dafeng City, Jiangsu Province by police from Changzhou City. He was illegally sentenced to two years of forced labor. During this sentence, the police used electric batons to beat him, constrained him in a small room, forced him to stand for a long period of time and forced him to do extensive labor. The police in the forced labor camp also did not allow Zhang Wuying and Wu Rong to visit him. The Changzhou City Police Department also incited the Changzhou City Teachers College to illegally constrain their freedom and persecute them financially.
In April 2002, when Wu Rong was one and a half years old, his mother was arrested at her workplace and taken to a brainwashing center at the Haihe Hotel for forty days. The pitiful Wu Rong cried all day and night, but his parents were not able to take care of him.
On New Year's Day of 2003, Wu Dianhui's forced labor term expired and he was released after suffering brutal torture in the forced labor camp. Soon after that, he became seriously ill at home because his body was extremely weak from extensive torture. He passed away on February 11, 2006.
When Wu Rong's father passed away, Wu Rong was only five and a half years old. He witnessed and experienced so much persecution and misfortune in his childhood. The worst is having his father taken away from him at such a young age.
Wu Rong now studies in Class #1 of the first grade at Changzhou Sanjing Elementary School. He lives a difficult life with his mother. His mother not only needs to pay the expensive home loan every month, but also needs to pay the expenses for her husband's medical treatment and her child's education. Moreover, because she continues to practice Falun Dafa, she is under constant pressure and persecution from the local authorities and her workplace. All of this is also weighing on the heart of young Wu Rong.
