(Clearwisdom.net) June 1, 2010 is Children's Day in China, where children are able to enjoy the festivities with their parents and teachers.

Six-year-old Jiajia witnessed police brutality against her family
In May 2008, Zhang Heping, head of the 610 Office in Chenzhou, Hunan Province, said to Mr. Liao Songlin and Mr. Liao Zhijun, who are father and son, "We want to completely destroy your family." Officials ransacked their home and confiscated their personal belongings. Jiajia, 6, was standing there petrified and clinging to her mother. Jiajia didn't dare say anything, and was illegally arrested by officers from the State Security Bureau. She witnessed the officers' brutality towards her parents and grandparents. This left her with severe psychological damage. Jiajia and her grandmother were released at midnight, and were to be taken home in a police car. She told her grandmother that she'd rather walk. As Jiajia was still shaking with fear, her grandmother had to lift her into the car. She was left traumatized by the whole experience.

Throughout her childhood, Xiaolianhua's parents have been arrested and persecuted on different occasions. She has lived in fear all these years.
