Critical Situation: Practitioners on Hunger Strike to Protest the Persecution in Gaoleng Detention Center, Heilongjiang Province
May 25, 2003
Many Falun Dafa practitioners are illegally detained in the Gaoleng Detention Center of the Fangzheng Forest Department in Heilongjiang Province. They are on hunger strike to protest the illegal detention.
Since July 20, 1999, the lawless officials in Fangzheng Forest department have been closely following Jiang's group to persecute Falun Dafa practitioners. One of the detained practitioners, Li Hongkui, 46 years old, was illegally sentenced to one year of forced labor more than three years ago. He was not ever sent to the labor camp. Instead, he was thrown into the Gaoleng Detention Center and he has still not been released.
The practitioners in the detention center are currently on hunger strike to protest. One practitioner was released after he was on hunger strike for over 20 days. There are three woman practitioners on hunger strike, Liu Zhiying (in her 40's), Zhu Damei, and Qu Xia. One of them was transferred to a different place when her health became a little better. The other two practitioners are now in hospital, their lives in danger.
