Ms. Wang Yuhua from Qinhuangdao City Holding Hunger Strike To Protest Persecution

Ms. Wang Yuhua is a Falun Gong practitioner from Qinhuangdao City in Hebei Province. She was arrested by police on April 11th, 2012, while at work. She is currently being detained at the Second Detention Station in Qinhuangdao City. She has been on a hunger strike for four days.

Wang Yuhua is a practitioner from Qinglong county, a cook for the Haibin Repair Shop. When she was explaining the facts about Falun Gong to a store owner while buying steamed buns, she was overheard by a policewoman, who later asked the store owner for the address of Wang Yuhua.

At around 9:30 a.m. on April 11th, Wang Yuhua was arrested by police officers from the Dongshanlu Police Station in Beidaihe while she was at work. The police ransacked her room, took many Falun Gong books and some Falun Gong materials. The Haininglu Police from Caigezhuang Village then also ransacked Wang Yuhua's home.

On the afternoon of April 14th, Wang Yuhua's friends and family members went to visit her in the Second Detention Station of Qinhuangdao City. Because it was Saturday, the guards did not allow the visit. After the family explained things to them for a long time, the guards asked for their IDs. The family members said they didn't know that IDs were required for family visits and they did not bring any. Her mother-in-law wept. Finally when the guards were about to leave, they allowed some of the family members and friends in to see Ms. Wang.

Wang Yuhua had not eaten for four days after being arrested. She was carrying only a little more than ten yuan with her, and even that was taken away by the police. The police did not even give her any money back to buy toilet paper. The detention station asked her to submit 300 yuan1 as a deposit before she could buy anything.

The guards asked the family to submit 500 yuan for Wang Yuhua's meals, but they had no money. Her mother-in-law cried and said, "Our financial situation is poor. My son is sick and always needs to take medicine. We count on our daughter-in-law to work to make money and she has now been arrested. We can't even make a living, so how can we offer any money to you?"

We are calling for kind-hearted people around the world to help quickly stop the persecution of Falun Gong practitioners by the Chinese Communist Party (CCP).
