(Clearwisdom.net) For practicing Falun Gong, my 69 year old mother, Ms. Wang Ruoe, was abducted by officers from the Yucai Street Police Station in Shijiazhuang City on September 6th, 2005 and sent to a brainwashing center called the "Legal Education Center of Hebei Province". Resisting their attempts to brainwash her, she went on a hunger strike and was brutally force-fed. This caused her tremendous mental and physical suffering. On December 9th, 2005, she was transferred to the Shijiazhuang's No.2 Detention Center. Since December 28th, 2005, my mother has been confined in Cell 134 of Shijiazhuang City's No. 2 Detention Center and so far it's been more than 8 months.
My mother was usually taken care of by our family members. For more than 8 months, she has suffered immense mental stress in the poor living environment of the detention center, which has caused her adverse physical conditions on several occasions. We are constantly worrying about her safety. Some officials promised to release her but they failed to act, using various excuses, time and time again.
What harm did a 69 year old lady cause anyone by practicing Falun Gong to improve her health, cure illnesses, and trying to behave well? How can a senior citizen forbear for so long and so much, to be abducted, interrogated, brainwashed, detained, and illegally arrested? I hereby demand that the leaders of various governmental departments in China consider my mother's situation and release her as soon as possible.
My mother is a retiree from the Shijiazhuang Chemical Fertilizer Plant and her dormitory is at the plant's living area, Room 28-1-101. For decades, mother worked hard and was willing to bear many responsibilities and received favorable comments from her co-workers. She had been in poor health due to various illnesses until she started to practice Falun Gong in 1996. Soon her illnesses disappeared and mother experienced the magic effects of Falun Gong. She went the extra mile to discipline herself according to Falun Gong's guiding principles "Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance." Meanwhile her mental situation also improved as she became more optimistic and more willing to help others and was frequently praised by the neighborhood committee. She would give away her best clothes for donations in every disaster, and was on the top list for contributing the most money. She also donated an exercise machine, a gift to her from us, to the neighborhood committee for local people to use. Thus the neighborhood committee chairman commended her for being "totally unselfish."
Seeing mother's happiness and good health, we felt it was fortunate for our family to be free from worry and we were so grateful to Falun Gong for giving mom a happy life in her old age. As her son, of course I was glad to support her in practicing Falun Gong.
After the ban of Falun Gong in July 1999, we were concerned about mother's involvement and worried about her possibly being arrested. Therefore we reminded her to be careful. However, we certainly did not have a solid reason to try to stop her from believing in Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance and behaving as a good person. The defamatory propaganda on TV about Falun Gong was obviously false. (We knew that from witnessing the changes in our mother). Falun Gong is really good for her health and practicing it is the only activity she does in her old age. So we can only support her choice.
Even now we cannot understand why the government keeps arresting Falun Gong practitioners and imposing illegal sentences on them. The principle of "Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance" that Falun Gong promotes is really good for the nation. Furthermore, doesn't the constitution provide freedom of belief, freedom of speech, freedom of association and freedom of assembly?
Because of her firm belief in "Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance" and for telling the truth, officers from the Yucai Street Police Station of Chang-an District in Shijiazhuang City in the darkness of early morning entered the plant living area on September 9th, 2005. The police climbed over a fence, forced open a window, broke into her dorm and took away my mother by force to be interrogated, brainwashed and detained.
During the brainwashing session, her advanced age was disregarded, and the "Legal Education Center" personnel denied my mother sleep while forcing her to write the so-called "Three Letters". It was beyond her ability to endure and under pressure my mother did copy the "Three Letters". But then she felt regretful and tore up the copies, declaring her refusal to give up her faith. Mother then started a hunger strike that lasted from October 4th until October 10th, when she was put under forced feeding. For that period of time, she was not allowed any visitors. Being moved around to various places, my mother has been illegally detained for more than 8 months. We are concerned and worried about her mental and physical condition, as she has been through more hunger strikes, forced feedings, and judicial persecution.
Thus, I hereby call upon all related departments and personnel to immediately release my mother, Ms. Wang Ruoe!
