Print  E-mail 

 

Ms. Xing Yuzhen, was a 42-year-old senior teacher at the Daqing City Sixth Middle School, Daqing City, Heilongjiang Province. Her husband, Mr. Jiang Nianxiang, was a mining engineer. They has a 14-year-old child; Ms. Xing’s mother-in-law also lived with them. They have a lot of health benefits by practicing Falun Gong. They were a happy family. However, after the central government started persecuting Falun Gong, that happiness was shattered.

 

During the period from June to December 2000, Ms. Xing went to Beijing three times to appeal to the government to stop the persecution of Falun Gong. Each time, she was arrested and detained. Once, she was detained for 75 days in Daqing City and forcibly brainwashed for 18 days. During detention, she went on a hunger strike. As a result, she was tortured and force-fed.

 

After she was released, she was forced to become homeless to avoid further persecution.

On May 11, 2001, she was arrested again and sent to the Daqing City Detention Center, where she went on a hunger strike for 40 days and was force-fed. Later, she was sentenced to one year of forced labor in the Harbin Drug Rehabilitation Center. There, she went on hunger strike for 39 days. The police force-fed her and claimed that it cost more than a thousand Yuan. They ordered her family to pay this cost. She was released on May 11, 2002.

 

Since she continued to practice Falun Gong, in the early morning on September 6, 2002, police from the Rangu District Police Station arrested her from her home, and detained her at the Daqing City Detention Center, where she went on a hunger strike for more than one month. Every day the police ordered inmates to force-feed her. Then she was transferred to the Saqu District Detention Center, where she continued the hunger strike.

On December 3, 2002, she was transferred to the Harbin Drug Rehabilitation Center, and was later sentenced to three years of forced labor. Because the authorities blocked all information about her, her current condition in the labor camp is unknown.

 

Her husband was dismissed from his job because he practices Falun Gong. In the early morning on September 6, 2002, police from the Rangu District Police Station arrested him at home.

 

Ms. Xing’s ailing mother-in-law passed away in October 2003 because she was unable to endure the shock and worry after the couple’s arrest.

 

In three years, their child had lost his parents’ love, and witnessed his mom and dad being arbitrarily detained and tortured. His grandmother could not handle the pressure and passed away. He was also expelled from school and forced to become homeless because his parents practiced Falun Gong. It is said that a relative adopted the child.
