Description:

 

On June 30th 2002, Hu Ming will turn two years old. For most kids, it would be a joyous event but for Hu Ming, there is not much to celebrate. His father, Hu Qianfeng, is currently detained at Beijing's Tuanhe Forced Labor Camp and his mother Ma Li, is detained at Beijing's Xinan Forced Labor Camp for Women.

 

Hu Ming could not even recognize his father. Two years ago, it was his grandparents who were with his mother while she was in labor. At that time, his father was detained. If it were not because of the imminent birth, his mother would have been put in detention as well. Two weeks before Hu Ming was born, a group of policemen broke into his parents' home. They took away his mother and interrogated her for over 10 hours, from 11 p.m. to 1 p.m. the following day. Ms. Ma, who was approaching her due date, was forced to sit on a small round stool with no back support. She was not given any water or food and was not allowed to rest. Soon later, the police arrested Mr. Hu also, saying, "It's just to get some information. You'll be released shortly." But no one has heard from him since then. It was not until a few months later that Hu Ming's family learned that his father had been sentenced to Beijing's Tuanhe Forced Labor Camp for a year. Before they sent him there, the police shocked him with several electric batons on the head. In the extremely hot weather, Hu Qianfeng lives in agony as a result of the torture.

At the time Hu Ming was not even one year old and was still being breast-fed, the "610 office" and his mother’s employer, the Capital Steel Factory, tried several times to put her in the brainwashing center.  One day, Hu Ming and his mother were kidnapped and taken to the Capital Steel Factory's Lujiashan Mining Factory in Beijing's Mentougou district to be brainwashed while in detention.

In June 2001, when Hu Ming was almost one year old, his father was released.   Hu Ming didn't recognize his father. The officials in the "610 office" forced his parents to act as "assistants" to brainwash other people. They weren't allowed to stay at home, even on Hu Ming's first birthday.

The mother and father eventually were forced to leave their child and their parents on Hu Ming’s first birthday, and became homeless to avoid further persecution.  In September 2001, his mother was arrested by a security guard while handing out flyers about the truth of Falun Gong.  She was sentenced to a forced labor camp for one year and a half without trial. Hu Ming’s father was also arrested in November 2001 and was sent to a forced labor camp, where he was tortured by electric batons and deprived of sleep for extended periods of time. 

Hu Ming's second birthday is coming up. He may be asking, "Mom and dad, where are you?"
