(Clearwisdom.net) Ms. Lu Shuying, of Tianjin City, has been persecuted by Chinese Communist Party agents on several occasions because she practices Falun Gong. The first time, she was arrested and sent to a forced labor camp for three years. Her husband divorced her, took the house and all the money and left her with no way to care for her two young children, who at the time, were ten and twelve years old.

Ms. Lu's relatives would not help the children because they were afraid that they too would be persecuted if they got involved. As a result, the children often slept in public parks while Ms. Lu was imprisoned.

After her release from the forced labor camp, Ms. Lu found a job and a place to live, but in early 2008, she was again sent back to the forced labor camp. She refused to give up her belief in Falun Gong while in custody, so for eighteen months she was persecuted so severely that she suffered a mental collapse. She became irrational and unable to speak properly. After she was released, her children were grief stricken to see her condition, but with the help of other Falun Gong practitioners, Ms. Lu recovered substantially.

On February 16, 2010, just three months after she was released, officers from the Beichen Police Department arrested Ms. Lu again and took her to a detention center. Her two children are too frightened to inquire about their mother's situation.
