The Persecution Suffered by Falun Gong Practitioners at Sichuan University
(Clearwisdom.net) From July 22, 1999, the beginning of the persecution of Falun Gong, the Sichuan Province Commissioners, under the lead of Zhou Yongkang and Zhang Zhongwei, have aggressively implemented the dictates of Jiang Zemin and his followers in the persecution of Falun Gong. Being afraid of freedom of thought and the belief in anything other than Communism, the commissioners fully implemented the persecution of Falun Dafa at Sichuan University, and designated the university as a persecution center. They brutally persecute Falun Dafa practitioners.
Over the past three years, Dafa practitioners employed by Sichuan University, and their family members, have suffered from the brutal persecution. The perpetrators adhered closely to the genocidal policy of, "Destroy Falun Gong practitioners' reputation by demonizing Falun Gong, disseminate fictitious stories about practitioners, destroy Falun Gong practitioners financially, and destroy them physically." The Sichuan Chinese Communist Party (CCP) provincial commissioners sent out many National Security Bureau special agents and/or public security police and hired unemployed people to find, follow, and monitor Dafa practitioners at the university. They also were tasked with monitoring and listening to practitioners' telephone calls. The special agents, police, and hired thugs frequently break into people's homes. They ransack practitioner's homes and confiscate their property. On holidays, they also limit the personal freedom of practitioners. This persecution has lasted for six years. Practitioners, be they faculty or students at Sichuan University, are under constant mental and physical torment. Several of the persecution stories are outlined below:
Ms. Hu Gui-e was a retiree from Sichuan University's Law Department. Her health improved after she began to practice Falun Gong. She became strong and free of illness. On July 22, 1999, Ms. Hu traveled to Beijing to appeal for Falun Dafa and to tell people that "Dafa is good and Zhen-Shan-Ren (Truthfulness, Compassion and Forbearance) is good." Because of this, Ms. Hu was twice unlawfully detained. The long-term harassment from the local 610 Office traumatized her. Hu Gui-e died in February of 2003 due to the persecution.
Ms. Yang Jingxia, a 70-year-old Dafa practitioner, is a well-known environmental protection specialist. She was recognized worldwide, known for her noble character and was held in high esteem. Ms. Yang was arrested at her home on May 9, 2003, without due cause. The police handcuffed both of her hands for four days and nights, and kept her from sleeping. Soon after, Ms. Yang was sentenced to a three-year prison term, without legal process. She is currently imprisoned at Jianyang City Women's Prison of Sichuan Province.
Ms. Luo Ping was an English instructor at the Huaxi Public Health College. She suffered like Ms. Yang Jingxia under the inhuman persecution. Ms. Luo was sentenced to a three and a half year term, and is also detained at Jianyang Women's Prison.
The late Ms. Li Yuru was a medical doctor at Chengdu City 12th Middle School and a family member of a Sichuan University employee. To prevent her from traveling to Beijing and appealing for justice for Falun Dafa, the local "610 Office" ordered staff from Wangjiang Police Station to arrest Ms. Li during the 2001 Chinese New Year holiday. She was imprisoned in a private prison. Ms. Li passed away in 2002 because of the constant harassment, monitoring and intimidation by the 610 Office and the police.
Mr. Wang Haipo, who held a Ph.D. in mathematics, was an associate professor. Because he practiced Falun Gong, he was arrested, and his house ransacked on the eve of China's 16th National Congress in 2002. He was handcuffed and his feet were shackled for four days and nights. During this time, Mr. Wang was forbidden to close his eyes. He was sentenced to three years at Wumaping Prison of Muchuan County of Leshan City, without legal process.
Ms. Fang Hui was an instructor at the Foreign Language College of Sichuan University. She was recognized as one of the Ten Young Most Courageous People for riding a bicycle to Lasa, Tibet. This recognized sports competitor of the University's mountain climbing team was cruelly persecuted. Now, she has poor eyesight, has difficulty walking and is unable to lead a normal life. Ms. Fang was sentenced to three and a half years of public service.
Mr. Li Ming was an economics student. He had been sent twice to a forced labor camp, without legal cause. Then, he was again arrested on April 11, 2005 and sent to the Jinhua Town Brainwashing Center of Wuhou District, Chengdu City.
Mr. Liu Tao was a young engineering student. In October 1999, he was sentenced without due cause to a three-year sentence in a forced labor camp. The university expelled him and he is forbidden to pursue his studies.
Mr. Luo Mingfu was a graduate student in the history department. In 1999, he was sentenced to serve three years of forced labor without due process. He no longer is allowed to pursue his graduate studies at the University.
Ms. Hong Jirong was a cadre. After prison detention without cause, she was sent to Pujiang Farm Village, where she was held in a halfway house and not given any food. Ms. Hong almost starved to death.
Mr. Cui Rongchang was a professor. He has been detained twice at the Chengdu Detention Center, without due cause, and fined more than ten thousand yuan.
Ms. Xu Haiyan was the head of a graduate school. She was sentenced to a forced labor camp.
Mr. Ni Yuehua was a high-level police superintendent and a family member of a Sichuan University employee. He was detained in a detention center, a jail, and a brainwashing center.
Mr. Zhu Jialin was a laborer, ready to retire. He was detained twice in a detention center. The authorities withheld more than four thousand yuan of his salary. They reduced his monthly retirement pay to 300 yuan.
Mr. Li Liyi was an English teacher, ready to retire. He was detained twice in a detention center. His income was reduced by more than twenty thousand yuan. Then, after retirement, his retirement payment was reduced to 300 yuan.
There are many more staff members who were unlawfully detained due to the persecution, including Professor Liu Dafeng, Senior Engineer Mr. Ding Zhigao, and accountant Ms. Liu Huirong.
