(Minghui.org) Falun Gong practitioner Mr. Li Lankui from Zhengding County, Hebei Province was arrested by 610 Officeagents on June 7, 2012 and detained at Zhengding County Detention Center, before being sent to the Shijiazhuang City Brainwashing Center for further persecution. This ruthless act of the Communist regime caused a major uproar among the citizens in Zhengding County. Over 700 people voluntarily stamped their fingerprints on a petition in support of rescuing Mr. Li. This news has been reported multiple times by several different media outlets, including New Tang Dynasty Television. After these events, the central government of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP), and the provincial CCP committee quickly dispatched personnel to be stationed in the village to harass and intimidate the people who had openly expressed support for Mr. Li.
At present, over 300 villagers in the surrounding area of Zhengding County have also stamped their fingerprints in support of Mr. Li, in addition to the 700-plus people who previously showed their support. They demanded that the government immediately release the innocent Falun Gong practitioner Mr. Li Lankui, withdraw the policemen stationed in the village and restore peaceful and safe living conditions for the people.
Below is their appeal letter:
We are villagers in the surrounding area of Zhengding County, Hebei Province. We heard that the Zhengding County 610 Office and police of West Pingle Police Station wantonly arrested innocent Mr. Li Lankui from East Anfeng Village during the visit of a foreign guest, and that upon encountering the villagers' resistance and petition with a jointly-signed letter, the higher authorities, rather than evaluating what is right and wrong, increased the harassment and intimidation of the innocent people who dared to speak out and stamp their fingerprints to support justice. We are very upset upon hearing this. The government should be serving the people. Now it's arresting a widely recognized good person (Mr. Li) without any reason and harassing and threatening the people who dare to speak out. The people's goal is very clear. Their sole intention is to allow Mr. Li to live a peaceful life as the police mistakenly arrested this innocent person without reason. Without distinguishing good from bad, the higher authorities started to harass and intimidate them. The CCP agents dispatched by the central government, are still making threats of terror at East Anfeng Village, and causing difficult situations for the villagers.
Based on these facts, out of our conscience and morality, we put together our fingerprints to support the over 700 just people who previously stamped their fingerprints. We demand the government to immediately release the innocent Falun Gong practitioner Mr. Li Lankui, withdraw the policemen stationed in the village, and restore peaceful and safe living conditions for the people.
As the 700 people who previously supported Mr. Li have been under threats, we have no choice but to deliver this appeal letter to the international society, urging the just people all over the world to pay attention and support us.
