Dear Reader:

In July 1999 the Chinese government launched a violent persecution against 100 million Falun Gong practitioners. The persecution, which is not dissimilar to the persecution Christians faced two thousand years ago, has since brought the destruction of countless families.

The sole objective of the persecution is to force all Falun Gong practitioners to renounce their beliefs and conform to the authorities' atheist doctrine. Torturing practitioners to the brink of death and forcing them to choose between a physical death and a mental demise - relinquishing dignity, fundamental values, and conscience - becomes a necessary ingredient of this persecution. Chinese police openly told Falun Gong practitioners, "We will make you beg for your life while dying, and beg for death while living!" So what's the only way out? To lie and say that Falun Gong has done harm to them and to society, and to thank and applaud the government for saving them from Falun Gong. Tell lies to live, or tell the truth and die.

Children have been particularly victimized and even exploited by the barbaric persecution. Some were directly tortured and killed to coerce their parents. Some suffer from families broken apart by the arrests and arbitrary executions. Some were expelled from school and portrayed as "examples" of being deserted by "callous Falun Gong parents" to incite hatred in society. The severity and extent of abuse are limited only by the imagination of malicious minds. Here are several reports, and we assure you that these represent only a fraction of the horrifying reports that we have received.

We submit the cases to you in the hope that you will lend your voice to these children. There are many human rights problems around the world. The persecution of Falun Gong, however, stands out as one that has not been strongly rejected by any government. With this acquiescence, the Chinese government's persecution continues to claim more victims, and the cases of violation of the children's rights continue to rise. If we do not speak up, we leave the suffering children in China with no voice at all.

Thank you for your kind attention.

"Why not Let Popo Know?" "She would Cry, Sadly Cry"

Ms. Luo Zhixiang Ms. Luo Zhixiang's daughter, Kaixin.

Huang Ying, born on May 18, 2001, is the daughter of Ms. Luo Zhixiang and Mr. Huang Guohua, both Falun Gong practitioners.

Ying last saw her mother in August 2001. Ms. Luo, with her husband jailed and police constantly shadowing her, had to leave Ying in the care of her grandma Nainai, the mother of Mr. Huang.

In the end, Ms. Luo did not escape the deadly persecution. On December 5, 2002, Nainai took Ying to the city of Guangzhou to see her mother’s body for the last time.

Family and friends had withheld the news of Ms. Luo’s death from grandma Popo - Ms. Luo’s mother, who lives in the city of Haikou - for fear that she was too frail to bear the shock. No one thought of explaining the delicate situation to Ying, merely one and a half years old at the time, but she surprised everyone.

When Popo asked: "Where is mother?" Ying answered sincerely: "Mama is working in Guangzhou."

When Popo was not around and other people asked: "Where is mother?" Ying always answered: "Mama was killed by bad people!" "Why not let Popo know?" "She would cry, sadly cry."

Maybe that was just coincidence; the girl may be too young to understand it at all.

One day, at another practitioner’s home, Ying saw a booklet, "Practitioners Persecuted to Death in Guangzhou." An adult turned to a page and asked Ying whose photo was there. Ying answered calmly: "This is mama," and then went aside to play. The adults at the room looked at each other and felt relieved; it was better for Ying not to understand death and not be hurt.

They were wrong. After the adults went into another room, Ying picked up the booklet, turned to the page with her mother’s photograph, and let tears silently stream down her cheeks.

When the adults saw this, they all cried. This little girl, one and a half years old, already knew to be considerate of others.

Perhaps you are curious how this lovely girl has come to be this way.

* * * * * *

Ms. Luo Zhixiang, born on October 6, 1973, in the city of Kaikou, was an engineer of the Guangdong Agriculture and Construction Industry Corporation. She began to practice Falun Gong in 1997, and was known as a kind and hard-working person. In April 1999, Ms. Luo met Mr. Huang and fell in love.

July 20, 1999, Jiang Zemin launched the persecution against Falun Gong. The young lovers went to Beijing together to appeal to the central government to stop the persecution, and both were arrested. Mr. Huang was detained for one month, and Ms. Luo was fired by her company.

In April 2000, the young couple married. Half a year later, on the night of October 29, 2000, Mr. Huang was arrested for passing out flyers exposing the persecution and was savagely beaten. After 135 days of detention, Mr. Huang was sentenced to two years of forced labor on March 15, 2001.

At the time of Mr. Huang’s arrest, Ms. Luo was already pregnant. On May 18, 2001, she gave birth to Huang Ying, and gave her the nickname "Kaixin," or "Happy" in Chinese. The local "610 Office" shadowed her all the time, threatening to kidnap her to a brainwashing class. To escape the persecution, Ms. Luo left Ying with Nainai and went into hiding. The local "610 Office" posted a bounty of 30,000 Chinese Yuan for Ms. Luo’s arrest.

Mr. Huang was released on December 30, 2001, and found his wife in May 2002. The couple had been married for two years, but separated for one and a half years. Their daughter was already one year old, but had not yet seen her father. How much they wanted to be united with their daughter, and live a peaceful life.

The police, however, tracked them down. On November 20, 2002, at 1 p.m., the police broke into their apartment and took the couple away. That night, they were locked into two iron cages. At that time, Ms. Luo was three months pregnant with a second child.

To protest the arbitrary detention and the ill treatment, they went on a hunger strike, and both suffered force-feeding.

Mr. Huang recalled: "[The police] forced a rubber tube into my nose, while five others pinned down my head and four limbs. When they finished, they pulled out the tube, and it was covered with my blood. They force-fed us every other day, me in the morning and my wife in the afternoon."

On November 28, 2002, the police told Mr. Huang that because his wife was pregnant, she would be released. Mr. Huang never saw her again.

The police deceived Mr. Huang, and handed Ms. Luo to the local "610 Office." The "610 Office" then sent Ms. Luo to a brainwashing class. On November 29, 2002, the authorities sent her to a hospital. Two days later, grandma Nainai was notified that Ms. Luo was on the verge of death. Nainai and Ying arrived in Guangzhou City on December 5, but Ms. Luo was already dead. She had passed away, along with her unborn child, at age 29.

The authorities claimed that Ms. Luo had committed suicide by jumping from a building. Before her death, she had been on a hunger strike for eleven days, and was even too weak to walk. There were also three persons assigned to monitor her at all times; it would have been impossible for her to find a chance to jump from a building. An autopsy showed that no bones were broken and that the cause of death was brain damage. For this reason, Ms. Luo’s family demanded an explanation, but the authorities refused.

The authorities informed Mr. Huang of his wife’s death on April 2, 2003, four months after the fact. He was released on December 16, 2003. The local "610 Office," however, continued to follow him. In July 2004, details of Ms. Luo’s death were reported overseas. Upon learning this, the local "610 Office" wanted to arrest Mr. Huang again. To escape further persecution, he left China and took refuge in Thailand. He is now applying for United Nations refugee status.

* * * * * *

Ever since Mr. Huang left Ying, the little girl tells grandma Nainai that she misses her father. She also kisses her mother’s photo often and tells Nainai, "I saw Mom. She is so beautiful. Mom comes to see me."

Ying’s mother gave her the nickname "Happy." Can she be really happy? Will anyone who has read this story help her to reunite with her father?

The persecution of Falun Gong has taken Ying’s mother away from her and forced her and her father apart. There are many other children like little Ying. Will we ever find out just how many?

 

A Young Mother and Her Eight-Month-Old Son Tortured to Death in Tuanhe Labor Camp

Ms. Wang Lixuan and her son, Meng Hao

Ms. Wang Lixuan lived in Nangou Village, Qixiasikou Town of Yantai City, Shandong Province. Since July 20, 1999, she went to Beijing 8 times to appeal to the government to stop the persecution of Falun Gong. On October 21, 2000, on the way to Beijing she and her 8-month-old son, Meng Hao, were arrested by officials from Shandong government's liaison office in Beijing. They were detained at Tuanhe Labor Camp in Beijing.

On November 7, 2000, Ms. Wang and her son were tortured to death at the labor camp. When her family received the death notice and arrived in Beijing, they found the frozen corpses of Ms. Wang and her son. According to the coroner's exam, her neck and knucklebones were broken, her skull was sunken and there was a needle stuck in her waist. There were two deep bruises on her son's ankles. There were two black and blue spots on his head and blood in his nose. The bruises may have been caused when the guards of the labor camp shackled little Meng Hao's ankles and hung him upside down.

Family members of Ms. Wang have also been persecuted. Her father Mr. Wang Guihai, her mother Ms. Li Xiuxiang, her sister Ms. Wang Lihui, a student in Yantai University, were sentenced to three years of force labor in the Wangcun Labor Camp in Zibo City, Shandong Pprovince merely because they practiced Falun Gong. Her younger brother Mr. Wang Xucao, a student of Jinan Architecture University became destitute due to the persecution.

 

Four-Year-Old Child without His Parents' Care

Huhu

Huhu is a four-year-old boy from Beijing. His father, Mr. Yu Chao, is a 30-year-old network engineer. His mother, Ms. Chu Tong, is 32 years old and was a lecturer in the Institute of Microelectronics at Tsinghua University

On April 25, 2000, Huhu's father, Mr. Yu Chao, went to Tiananmen Square to appeal to the government to stop persecuting Falun Gong. Because of this, he was detained for one month and was then sentenced to one year of forced labor. Later he was allowed to serve the sentence outside the labor camp.

On October 27, 1999, when Huhu's mother, Ms. Chu Tong, went to Tiananmen Square to appeal for Falun Gong, the police brutally beat her. They then arrested her and detained her in the No. 7 Section of the Beijing City Police Department. She was sentenced to one and a half years in prison without any legal procedure. After her release in the summer of 2001, she wrote an article exposing the persecution she had received in prison and published a "solemn declaration" expressing her intention to continue cultivating Falun Gong. She and her husband, Mr. Yu, were forced to leave their home with their son Huhu to avoid recapture and further persecution.

The police kept tracking them and even closely watched the apartment of Huhu's grandparents. The options that the small family had were limited. In August 2002, the police from National Security Bureau and Beijing "610 Office" [1] captured Huhu's parents. Huhu has been separated from his parents and is cared for by a family friend.

Ten-Year-Old Deprived of Schooling and Forced into Homelessness

Huang Chunlin, a ten-year-old boy and resident of Tieling City, Liaoning Province, is now forced to share a life of homelessness with his mother, Ms. Jin Hongyu. After Ms. Jin went to Beijing to appeal to the government to stop persecuting Falun Gong, she was detained four times by the Xicheng District Police Department in Beijing and the Yinzhou District Police Department in Tieling City. Ms. Jin was sentenced to one year of forced labor and then asked to pay a "fine" of 5,000 Yuan to be allowed to serve her term outside the camp. In 1999, when Chunlin was six, his mother, aunt, and grandmother were all arrested for their practice of Falun Gong, leaving no one to take care of him, or of his grandfather, who was suffering from a serious illness. They had a very hard life.

In February 2002, Ma, the Chief of the Chaihe Street Police Station in the Yingzhou District, Tieling City, along with several policemen, went to the home of Ms. Jin and her relatives to harass them. On several occasions they also drove away customers from the restaurant Ms. Jin owned. Then, without any permit, the police searched and closed the restaurant. Ms. Jin had to leave home to avoid further persecution, taking Chunlin with her. From then on they were destitute, and their hard life became even more difficult.

In May 2002, policemen Yu Dehai, Sun Lizhong, and Yang Dongsheng from the Yinzhou District Police Department in Tieling City, found and kidnapped Chunlin. They interrogated him and tried to find out where his mother was, but he refused to tell them. Sun Lizhong then picked him up by the throat and threatened, "I won't put you down if you refuse to talk. Don't think I can't deal with you because you are just a kid. You better speak, or I'll jail you here." Yu Dehai told Chunlin, "If you tell us where your mother and aunt are right way, we assure you we won't arrest them. But if you do not tell us we'll beat them if we capture them." The police didn't allow the boy to sleep at night. Chunlin was in a state of utter exhaustion after three days of abuse.

Later, his father's sister came to take him home to live with her. She registered him for school, but policemen Sun Lizhong and Yang Dongsheng continued to persecute him. They went to the school and followed him home every day. Meanwhile, they tapped his aunt's telephone. Eventually the school, under pressure from the police, refused to let Chunlin come to class. Being unable to bear the pressure, however, his aunt became ill and other relatives dared not take him in. Huang Chunlin is now with his mother, and they are both homeless and destitute.

 

Have I Lost Mom Too?

Left photo: Zou Rongfa, Right photo:
Rongfa's father (Zou Songtao) and mother (Zhang Yunhe)

Zou Rongfa (female) was born in November 1999. At that time, her father, Zou Songtao, was held in a detention center because he had gone to Beijing to appeal to the government to stop persecuting Falun Gong. Mr. Zou was not released until the end of December 1999. He had been in and out of jail many times because he was a Falun Gong practitioner.

The director of the Taixi Police Station, Gong Guoquan, once handcuffed Mr. Zou to an iron chair. The director beat him with the sole of his shoe, causing his head to bleed and swell to twice its size-beyond the point of recognition. He was unconscious for more than 20 minutes.

In July of 2000, Mr. Zou was sent to the Qingdao City Forced Labor Camp. Later, at the end of September 2000, he was transferred to the Wangcun Forced Labor Camp in Zibo City. On the morning of November 3, 2000, policemen Zheng Wanxin, Shao Zhenghua, and others took Mr. Zou into an interrogation room, shocked him with electric batons, and killed him within two hours. Rongfa lost her father.

After the death of Mr. Zou, the police kept harassing and closely watching Rongfa's mother, Zhang Yunhe. In February 2002, the police arrested Ms. Zhang and detained her at the Dashan Detention Center, Qingdao City. The police refused to release any information about her to her family. Zou Rongfa thus was separated from her mother.

Rongfa had to stay with her grandmother, who was over 60 years old. However, her grandmother became ill and died in August 2001, after enduring the pain of losing her son-in-law and being separated from her daughter.

Rongfa has lost her father, her mother, and her grandmother, the three people she loved the most. Whenever she misses her family, she steps up on a little stool, reaches up and kisses her Daddy's box of ashes.

 

Statement from Chen Ying's Mother

Chen Ying

On August 19, 1999, CCTV broadcast a report about Chen Ying, a first-year female student at Shuren High School in Jiamusi City, Heilongjiang Province. The report stated that Chen Ying, after attempting suicide a few times, had died from jumping off a train. This report did not tell the true story.

Chen Ying had practiced Falun Gong since May 1996. She was healthy both physically and mentally. She was an intelligent student with an excellent character and was always willing to help others. At school, she was vice-president of her class and active in extracurricular activities. She was an honor student because of her excellence in academics, sports, and morality, and had received many awards. Her teachers and classmates also spoke highly of her. At home, she was a good helper to her mother and her neighbors were quite fond of her.

On July 22, 1999, CCTV announced the ban on Falun Gong. That evening, Chen Ying went to Beijing to appeal for the right to practice Falun Gong. On July 29, a relative found her at Tiananmen Square in Beijing and took her back to Jiamusi City by train. When the train stopped at Qinhuangdao City, Chen Ying left when her relatives stopped at a store. The relative contacted the Qinhuangdao Railway Station for help, but they were unable to find her. Chen Ying was later arrested in Beijing and put on a train with a train crew officer assigned to watch her. During a two-hour break at a station, Chen Ying escaped while left unattended. On August 2, Chen Ying was arrested in Beijing again and sent to Jiamusi City's Liaison Office in Beijing; however, she managed to escape the next day.

On August 4, Chen Ying's father, her school principal, and a school security officer arrived in Beijing to take her home. They searched for her for a week but could not find her. A person in charge of the Liaison Office promised to inform Chen Ying's family members and the school principal as soon as she was found. On August 15, Chen Ying was again arrested in Beijing, but no one notified either the school or her family members. On August 16, Chen Ying was escorted back towards Jiamusi City. On the way to Jiamusi City, at around 2:34 p.m., Chen Ying went to the washroom and jumped off the train from the washroom window. The train ran about another 10 km before it fully stopped. The head of the train crew and Officer Li rushed to find Chen Ying and sent her to the Fengrun Hospital in Fengrun City.

At about 5:00 p.m. on August 16, one police officer took me from my workplace to a police station. I was told that I would not be allowed to see my daughter if I still practiced Falun Gong. Because I wanted to see my daughter, I lied and told them that I no longer practiced Falun Gong. They did not tell me that my daughter was already dead. When we arrived at the Fengrun Hotel in Fengrun City after 9:00 p.m. on August 17, Officer Li told us that they had discontinued her oxygen supply on the evening of August 16 when she could not be revived. They had then sent her body to the Fengrun Crematory for freezing.

On August 18, in order to see my daughter's body, I was forced to lie again, on a TV interview conducted by the Tianjin TV station on behalf of CCTV, by saying that I had completely stopped practicing Falun Gong. Then, on the same day, I was accompanied by police officers and taken to the crematorium to see my daughter's body. However, I was not allowed to see the cremation, and was forced to leave Fengrun City after 2:00 p.m.

Now, I must tell the truth. What I said to the police and media reporters were all lies, including the story that was published in the Sanjiang Evening Newspaper.

On March 29, 2000, I went to Beijing to appeal for Falun Gong as my daughter had done before. I was arrested on the train from Shenyang City to Beijing and sent to a detention center. On April 3, 2000, I was escorted back to Jiamusi City by staff from both my workplace and the police station. I was detained at a detention center for 47 days.

 

Teenager Force-Fed a Harmful Drug and Sentenced to Seven Years in Prison

Li Mingwei (male) was a middle school student at the Experimental Middle School, Anqiu City, Shandong Province.

One morning in early March 2001, while Li Mingwei was still sleeping, eight city officials and policemen broke into his home and arrested him and his mother, leaving his 12-year-old sister home alone. They were detained in Anqiu City. The Anqiu City official, Song Baojie, had allocated two houses there for the purpose of detaining and brainwashing Falun Gong practitioners.

Li Mingwei started a hunger strike to protest the illegal detention. Five days later he was sent back to school, where he was detained in a small room. Under orders from Wei, an Anqiu City official, and as punishment, the school sent him to the Anqiu City People's Hospital for force-feeding. They injected him with an unknown drug that made his whole body numb. Then they tried to insert a tube into his nose and down to his stomach, but failed because the tube was too thick. Next, they used some equipment to force open his mouth so they could insert the tube into his stomach. His mouth bled profusely due to this torture.

The school officials tried to force Li Mingwei to write a statement saying that he would not appeal to the government to stop persecuting Falun Gong. They told him that if he refused to write it, they would lock him up and not allow him to go back to class. A teacher closely watched him during the day while two students watched him at night. He was forced to watch brainwashing materials that defamed Falun Gong.

In July 2001, Li Mingwei went to Beijing again to appeal to the government to stop the persecution. He was arrested and sent back to school, where he was detained for the whole summer. Li Mingwei started another hunger strike and was again released.

One day, he was called from his class to the school office. Several teachers surrounded him and attacked him verbally. One of the school directors, Jiang Dongpo, slapped him on his face more than ten times.

To avoid further persecution, he had to leave home and school, wandering about so that he could not be located. The latest information about Li Mingwei revealed that the police found and detained him in a forced brainwashing center in Anqiu City. He was later sentenced to seven years in prison.

 

Mother Tortured to Death, Father Missing, Child Placed in Orphanage

Wang Xiaodong, a 34-year- old middle school teacher was tortured to death Liu Xifeng, Ms. Wang's husband, is missing Their son, Liu Xiang, is 11 years old and currently living at the Shenzhen Orphanage

Falun Gong practitioners Mr. Liu Xifeng and Ms. Wang Xiaodong were originally from northeastern China. They were both teachers at Shenzhen Nantou Middle School, and they had a son named Liu Xiang, who is now 11 years old.

After the persecution of Falun Gong started on July 20, 1999, Mr. Liu went to Beijing to appeal for an end to the injustice thrust upon Falun Gong practitioners. In order to avoid the police who were attempting to stop practitioners from appealing, he walked to Beijing, which took him 45 days. He suffered much from the trip. His feet became swollen from walking and he could not wear shoes.

In 2000, police detained Mr. Liu's wife, Ms. Wang, and sentenced her to two years in a forced labor camp for appealing for Falun Gong in Beijing. She underwent extreme torture in the Nanshan Detention Center and later in the Sanshui Forced Labor Camp. She suffered a mental breakdown from the torture and was released for treatment. After her release, she resumed practicing Falun Gong and healed quickly.

The couple was fired from their school because of their appeals. To avoid harassment from police, they went into hiding. Their son's education, therefore, was greatly disrupted.

Around January 2002, Mr. Liu and fellow practitioners fell into a trap set by the Chinese National Security Bureau. The police arrested them in Buji, Shenzhen. The section chief of Shenzhen National Safety Bureau, Xiao Shizhong, ordered police to torture Mr. Liu. He was later brought to Shenzhen City Armed Police Hospital (also known as Guangdong Province Border Patrol Armed Police Hospital), which is the designated medical institution for the Shenzhen "610 Office." For more than one year, dozens of Falun Gong practitioners who had been on hunger strikes to protest the persecution were kidnapped and taken to this place, where they were forcibly given injections and force-fed.

At around noon on March 22, 2002, Mr. Liu, who was on hunger strike, was taken to room 301 of the first section of the Internal Medicine Department to be force-fed. The section chief, Xiao Shizhong, shouted in the corridor, "Let's puncture this pig to death. Let's do a human body experiment. Whoever wants to learn can come!" Thus, the tube insertion was performed by security guards Zhang and Tang Jianfeng, who were non-medical personnel, from Shenzhen City Longgang Security Firm. The improper procedures caused Mr. Liu to have trouble breathing; his whole body twitched and his life appeared to be in danger. As a result, the officers put him on a cardiac monitor for emergency treatment. A doctor on duty, Dr. Liu (female, over 40 years old), prescribed an intravenous drip in each arm. At this critical moment, rather than allowing a trained nurse to administer the intravenous infusions, security guards Zhang and Tang Jianfeng insisted on learning to insert the needle. Head nurse Liu Min approved and instructed on-duty nurse Geng Jie to teach them how to do the insertion. These two security guards punctured Mr. Liu's hands and arms over twenty times, breaking blood vessels in many places. This went on for more than ten minutes. Mr. Liu started to show severe, irregular heartbeats and difficulty breathing, and his whole body went into seizure.

Mr. Liu suffered another round of torture at about 1:30 p.m. on March 30, 2002, in room 329 of the Internal Medicine Department. The police force-fed him high-proof alcohol through a nasal tube twice in order to torture him. He had not been eating or drinking for 16 days. Police officer Wang Wei took out four sets of handcuffs, cuffed Mr. Liu's hands and feet to a bed, and injected a full syringe of alcohol into the nasal feeding tube. Later, security guard Song Shichao and another person from the Longgang Security Firm injected twice the amount of alcohol they had forced into him the first time. In less than one hour, they inserted the tube through his nose twice and injected alcohol twice. After the second time, the tube was covered with blood when they pulled it out.

Mr. Liu successfully walked out of the hospital and regained his freedom when the prison guards who monitored him fell asleep.

On September 22, 2002, Mr. Liu and his wife, Ms. Wang, were arrested again.

Currently, no one knows the whereabouts of Mr. Liu. The police tortured Ms. Wang to death after she was on hunger strike for four months in the Shenzhen Nanshan Detention Center. It is said that the police sent their 11-year-old son to the Shenzhen Orphanage.

 

High School Student Forced to Leave Home to Avoid Torture

I am a 17-year-old high school student. In June 2001, before an important examination at school, my teachers and the school authorities called me into their offices several times to tell me not to give true answers to the Falun Gong questions in the examination. However I did not want to lie, so I wrote down the truth about Falun Gong for the questions on the examination. The city education administrator, Yao, and a teacher, Zheng, twice threatened me for this and wanted to send me to a forced labor camp.

When they came to my house, I managed to escape and thus avoid being captured and tortured. The authorities and the policemen of Sanjie Town threatened my parents. They told my parents that if they did not turn me in, they would arrest my parents and confiscate our land. The authorities, Dong Xiquan and Wang Jiubing, also beat my parents. On September 3, 2001, to prevent further torture, my parents left home. We are all wandering on the streets. I have not been able to attend school since we became homeless.
