Mr. Zhang is renowned in the field of ancient Chinese philosophy. He is also a researcher at the Institute of Chinese Philosophy, Zhongshan University, and a professor of Hong Kong Taoist Institute. He has published several books and many articles over the years.
Mr. Zhang started practicing Falun Gong in early 2010. Authorities arrested him as he spoke with people about Falun Gong and took him to a brainwashing facility in May 2010. Mr. Zhang had been on a hunger strike to protest the persecution. The local 610 Office and personnel from the brainwashing center used all kinds of methods attempting to transform him. Mr. Zhang refused to give in, and the latest rounds of abuse have severely hindered his mental faculties.
