Chongqing: Ms. Liu Zhilan and Her Family and Neighbors in the Dadukou District Foil the 610 Office's Attempt to Arrest Her
(Clearwisdom.net) Around 7:40 on the morning of August 3, 2011, Ms. Liu Zhilan was on her way to work when she was intercepted at the gate of the faculty dormitory of Chongqing Tax School by several 610 Office agents from the Xinshan Village Neighborhood Administration in the Dadukou District of Chongqing. The officials had been waiting for her in a car to take her to a brainwashing center. Ms. Liu immediately resisted. Her family got the message and arrived promptly. They spoke out to the pedestrians passing by, describing the persecution their whole family had suffered for being good people. Because Ms. Liu and her family were adamant in opposing the officials, Ms. Liu was not arrested.
There were many onlookers at the scene, and everyone criticized the officials. Facing the public's contemptuous glares, the Chinese Communist Party officials knew what they were trying to do was wrong and quietly left. Many kind people reminded Liu Zhilan and her family to be alert, because those authorities might try to arrest her again. They said, “One day we all will be your witnesses.” Some said, “If they try to arrest you again, you should shout out loudly.”
Ms. Liu's mother, Gu Zhiyi, is 77 years old. Ms. Gu is a senior lecturer at the Chongqing Tax School. She was awarded the Excellent Teacher prize in Sichuan Province and was the former coordinator of the Chongqing Falun Dafa Volunteer Site. After Ms. Gu Zhiyi started practicing Falun Gong, the diseases that had plagued her for many years all disappeared. She became open-minded and cheerful. Her husband, Liu Jianhua, who graduated from Beijing University, had cerebral arteriosclerosis, which was also cured after practicing Falun Gong. Liu Zhilan's husband, Zhang Quanliang, graduated from Sichuan University and was employed in the Coal Design Institute of China's Coal Company as a computer engineer. He earned third place in Chongqing's “Scientific Success” rating. Ms. Liu graduated from Jianghan Oil Institute. She worked as a government official and never gambled or took any bribes. When she returned to the accounting department where she used to be the manager, her former subordinate exclaimed with joy, “Teacher Liu, it is you! Good to see you!”
After Jiang Zemin's CCP regime started persecuting Falun Gong on July 20, 1999, however, Ms. Liu's entire family suffered many arrests and detentions in jail and forced labor camps. The mother, Ms. Gu Zhiyi, was sentenced to three years in prison in 2000. Ms. Liu was detained in a forced labor camp in 2005. Her husband, Zhang Quanliang, was detained in a forced labor camp in 2000 for three years and suffered all sorts of brutal torture many times so that he almost lost his life. Though he survived, his became deaf in his right ear. He was arrested again in December 2005 and sentenced to five years in prison.
Mr. Zhang was released from prison in December 2010. Because he suffered many years of cruel persecution, his body and mind were severely damaged. He could not work as he had in the past. They have a child in middle school. The entire family is totally dependent on the income from Ms. Liu's temporary jobs. Because 610 Office agents harassed them frequently and his family members were persecuted many times, Ms. Liu's father could not bear it and suffered paralysis several years ago. Also, one of her older sisters became mentally disordered.
