( On December 21, 2011, Ms. Gong Xiangrui, a Falun Gong practitioner from Nanlidian Village, Xinzhongyi Township, Renqiu, Hebei Province, was arrested at the Shishui Village market in Shimenqiao Township. Police from Shimenqiao Police Station then took her to the Renqiu Police Department. In the afternoon, police from Renqiu Security Division searched her house and confiscated 9,000 yuan worth of truth-clarifying materials. Even though the detention center refused to accept her, the State Security Division under the Renqiu Police Department has forcibly held her at the detention center; she is still there.

Ms Gong, 58, had suffered serious stomach trouble for over twenty years before she started to practice Falun Gong. She saw many doctors who could not help her. She was unable to work in the field or at home when her stomach was upset and this caused financial difficulties for her family. She also smoked, drank, and played mahjong. Family conflicts came one after another.

Ms Gong then started to practice Falun Gong. Soon after, she recovered from her ailments and got rid of the bad habits of smoking, drinking, and playing mahjong. She cared a lot about other people. Her family became more harmonious. Neighbours and family members admired her very much and acknowledged that Falun Dafa is truly good.

On July 20, 1999, the CCP started to persecute Falun Gong. Ms Gong was sent to Tangshan Forced Labor Camp because of her firm belief. Guards there shocked her with electric batons. As a result, she had difficulty walking for a long time.

Affected by false propaganda on CCP-controlled state television, her family tried to force her to give up her belief. Her father-in-law once overturned the dining table while they were eating and punched her in the face. Despite her family's misunderstanding, she treated them kindly as usual and required herself to act according to the principles of Truth-Compassion-Forbearance. Her kindness and sincerity changed the atmosphere and environment of her home.

On December 21, 2011 in cold, gusty weather, as Ms. Gong went to deliver New Year's calendars and other truth-clarifying materials to villagers in Shishui Village, she was arrested.
