Students and Parents Outraged When a Beloved Teacher Is Arrested Again for Her Belief in Falun Gong
(Minghui.org) On Saturday May 11, 2013, Falun Gong practitioner Ms. Wang Fang from Suihua City in Heilongjiang Province was putting up truth-clarifying posters on the street with practitioner Ms. Song from Suihua City Oil Company. They were followed and illegally arrested by Li Jianfei and other officers from the 610 Office of Beiling District in Suihua City. Now they are detained at Suihua City Detention Center.
Ms. Wang Fang is a teacher from Shangzhi Elementary School who was always assigned to manage the most difficult class in the school. She never complained and instead did her best to do her job well. She sets up a high standard for herself strictly following Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance. Unlike other teachers, she never accepted any gift or money from parents and treated all the students equally, always working very hard. The parents were touched by her kindness and care for the students. Under her influence, her students gradually became more kind themselves, and their test scores have improved a great deal. Her class became the lead within the whole grade.
In 2007, Ms. Wang Fang was framed and was arrested by agents from 610 Office of Linbei District. Many people were shocked by her arrest and many parents gathered at the school to demand the city's department to take action to return Ms. Wang. They expressed that only she was qualified for the position head-teacher of the class and that they couldn't understand why the authorities persecuted such a good teacher. The parents strongly requested the school to bring Ms. Wang back to class. Some parents used their contacts to help Ms. Wang's family.
After Ms. Wang returned, due to the pressure from the authorities, the principal no longer appointed her as head-teacher. Last year, there was a head-teacher position available, but the school assigned it to another teacher. However, the parents appealed to let Ms. Wang take that position. The principal felt awkward and had to talk with Ms. Wang in front of all the parents. The principal said if she continues to practice Falun Gong, she cannot be the head-teacher. Ms. Wang said that the reason why all the parents trusted her so much was because she practices Falun Gong and that she would never give it up. Under the parents' adamant demand, the principal had to allow Ms. Wang become the head-teacher. Since then, she worked even harder and brought the beauty of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance to each student.
The students and parents were outraged and saddened by her recent arrest.
