Ms. Wang Guixiang is a 46-year-old Falun Gong practitioner from Jiaokangzhuang Village of Xianghe County in Langfang City, Hebei Province. She is warmhearted and willing to help others. She had to take care of her elderly parents by herself as her father was disabled for six months and her mother is blind.
After going to Beijing in March 2000 to appeal for justice for Falun Gong at Tiananmen Square, Ms. Wang was detained in Xianghe County Detention Center for two weeks. She was also extorted out of more than 3,000 yuan. She went to Beijing to appeal again in April 2000, and later was sent to Banqiao Forced Labor Camp in Tianjin City and detained there for one and a half years. Ms. Wang was severely tortured at the labor camp. She was shocked with three or four high-voltage electric batons simultaneously all over her body, brutally force-fed, and put in solitary confinement. One of her teeth was knocked out during a beating. Later she was forced to stay away from home for nearly three years to avoid further persecution. Her husband (from Tianjin City) could not bear the persecution any more, and divorced Ms. Wang in 2001. Her father was severely ill in bed and later passed away. Her mother's mind is not very clear and calls her name every day. On March 2, 2008, police took Wang Guixiang into custody off the street in Shijiazhuang City and sent her to Xianghe County Detention Center. She was later sentenced to forced labor for two years and detained in Shijiazhuang Women's Labor Camp.
