Practitioner Ms. Sun Xiaoqiu, around 50, was a math teacher at the Changchun City Children's Normal School. She started to cultivate Dafa in 1995. After Jiang's regime and the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) started the persecution of Dafa, Ms. Sun had been to Beijing to validate the “Fa”, and was later sentenced one year of forced labor, to be served in the Changchun City Heizuizi Women's Forced Labor Camp from May 2003 to May 2004. Because she kept persisting in Dafa cultivation and refusing to be brainwashed, Sun Xiaoqiu's prison term was extended by 40 days. She was finally released through her daughter's efforts.
Ms. Sun went back to work teaching at her school. However, agents from the Quilinlu Police Station often went to her workplace to harass her. Agents from the Changchun City “610 Office” arrested Ms. Sun on the morning of January 6, 2005 and sent her to Xinglongshan Brainwashing Center in Changchun City. Just before the Chinese New Year of 2005, officials from the Chaoyang District's Politics and Law Committee, Yongchang Residential Office and from the Changchun 610 Office went to Ms. Sun's workplace to harass her and intimidate her into giving up Falun Dafa, saying that if she would not do so, her daughter would be forbidden to participate in the graduate students' admission test.
Sun Xiaoqiu decided to leave home to avoid the relentless persecution. The school officials later fired her. We heard that in March 2007 Ms. Sun had died.
