Elementary School Student and Her Father Become Homeless to Avoid Persecution  
Print  E-mail 

 

Xuan Xuemei is a 5th grade female student in class 4 at Xinqi Primary School in Boli County of Heilongjiang Province.

 

Xuemei and her mother are Falun Gong practitioners. After repeated arrests, Xuemei's mother was forced to leave her home to avoid recapture and further persecution. On March 5, 2001, the authorities of Boli County, Heilongjiang Province forced every teacher and student in the Xinqi Primary School to sign documents slandering Falun Gong.

 

To avoid signing the documents, Xuemei asked to leave. But two days later, the County again sent people to make videos of every teacher and student signing the anti-Falun Gong statements. Xuemei again asked to leave. Xuemei's mother is wanted by the police. They exerted pressure on the school to force Xuemei to sign the statements and aid them in tracking down her mother.

 

Teacher Yi Bo was assigned to coerce Xuemei into denouncing Falun Gong. She threatened the little girl for three hours. After returning to class, Xuemei was called to the principal’s office again. There were three or four police officers waiting for her. They asked her questions like “Is Falun Gong good?” and “Is Li Hongzhi good?” They also asked her about her mother's whereabouts.

 

Xuemei was finally allowed back to class, but the teacher again tried to pressure her to stop practicing Falun Gong. The teacher told her the only way she could attend school was to give up her practice. Eventually Xuemei had to leave school.

 

Because of these kinds of threats, Xuemei’s father decided to leave home with her, and they are now homeless.
