An Outstanding Student Expelled from School, Left Homeless  
Print  E-mail 

 

Yin Xiaotian (male) was a 15-year-old middle school student, resident of Changchun City, Jilin Province.

 

Since July 20, 1999, because Xiaotian went to Beijing twice with his parents to appeal for the right to practice Falun Gong, the Anmin Elementary School in Changchun City stripped him of his right to participate in the activities for honor students. He was punished with open criticism in front of the entire school. They also wrote on Xiaotian’s record “Went to appeal in Beijing twice and will not give up Falun Gong even after much coaching. As such, he has caused a lot of damage to the school.”

 

In the summer of 2001, Xiaotian was accepted at the Chaoyang No.1 Middle School in the Chaoyang District, Changchun City due to his outstanding scores. When the principal of the No.1 Middle School got his record from the Anmin elementary school, he found out that Xiaotian was a Falun Gong practitioner. Therefore, Xiaotian was asked to renounce Falun Gong, or he would not be allowed to attend the school. Since Xiaotian refused to give up Falun Gong, he was sent to the No. 69 Middle School, the lowest ranking middle school in Changchun City.

 

On the first day of school, Xiaotian was again asked to renounce Falun Gong, or else not be allowed to attend class. He was also threatened with being sent to the police station if he refused to give up Falun Gong. Therefore, Xiaotian was stripped of his right to attend any school and obtain an education because he refused to renounce Falun Gong.

 

Starting in July 1999, Xiaotian’s father, Mr. Yin Xueqing, was detained at the Chaoyanggou Forced Labor Camp in Changchun City for a year because he went to appeal for the right to practice Falun Gong. His mother, Ms. Chen Yanmei, was detained at the Heizuizi Women’s Forced Labor Camp in Changchun City for one year, and then her term was extended for more than half a year without reason. During that year, Xiaotian did not have anybody to take care of him, and he had to live in other people’s homes. After being released, his father was again sentenced to two years of forced labor because he practices Falun Gong.

 

While Xiaotian’s father was detained at the Chaoyanggou Forced Labor Camp, his mother became homeless to avoid recapture and further persecution. Xiaotian again became a child with no one to take care of him.
