In the past six years, the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) has brutally persecuted Falun Gong. Ms. Wang Xiuqing from Taiyang Village, Longjing City, Jilin Province was detained several times. The warden, Wang Limei (female) in the Fifth Brigade of Heizuizi Labour Camp in Changchun City, persecuted Ms Wang Xiuqing using all sorts of torture methods. Her health became poor as a result. The local police and the government officials continued the persecution, however, and after being raped and having suffered unbearable humiliation, Wang Xiuqing died shortly thereafter. More details follow:
Ms. Wang Xiuqing was 53 and unmarried. After her parents passed away, Ms. Wang led a hard life alone. Her health was very poor back then. In 1997, she came across Falun Dafa and began practising. Shortly afterwards, her health improved tremendously. She was able to do the hard farm work again. When the persecution started in July 1999, the Laotougou County police often harassed her and tortured her both mentally and physically. Every time she said that she would continue practising Falun Gong, they raided her home. They arrested her several times and sentenced her to the labour camp for one year.
The warden Wang Limei in the Fifth Brigade of Heizuizi Labour Camp brutally persecuted her using various methods. No matter what means the wardens used, she kept on practising Falun Dafa. She refused to be "reformed1" and turn against Dafa. After she was released from the labour camp, she was very weak and suffered a relapse.
But the police from the Laotougou Police Station did not stop persecuting her. Soon she was arrested and taken to the brainwashing centre. She did not cooperate with them and went on a hunger strike. She then was taken to the Longjing Custodial Station and detained there. She continued her hunger strike until she was on the brink of her death. She was then sent to the hospital.
After that she was forced to become homeless. The police, however, continued looking for her, and they went to her former residence. While Ms. Wang's health was still frail and she was away from home, she was raped. She could not recover from it and passed away on November 3rd, 2005.
The relatives of Wang Xiuqing knew that the reason of her death was that she was raped, but they did not dare to report that to the police. They felt that they had no choice but to suffer silently. During these many years of persecution against Falun Gong, people have formed the concept that Falun Gong could not get justice anywhere. In Mainland China, there are many such families that have Falun Gong practitioners. They have to suffer the loss of their loved ones and withstand the pain of separation in silence under the CCP's persecution.
We hope that everyone will see the persecution clearly for what it is, and stand up to put a stop to it so that tragedies such as this will not be repeated.
