Huang Ying's Life

Three months after Huang Ying's birth in August 2001, she was forced to separate from her mother who was steadfast in practising Falun Dafa and exposing the persecution daily. Her grandmother took her back to their hometown in Shandong Province. That was the last time she saw her mother alive. On December 5, 2002, when she was one-and-a-half years old, little Huang Ying saw her mother's body. Her father was then in a labour camp and didn't know his wife had died.

Huang Ying didn't know what I, her father, looked like. Even now Huang Ying still cannot live with her parent. Recently, agents from the Tianhe District "610 Office" in Guangzhou City were looking for me. I went into exile. Huang Ying stayed with me for only three months, from February to May 2004. Right now she lives with her grandparents in a dilapidated house made of sun-dried mud bricks (adobe bricks). Her grandparents have no source of income and cannot afford to send her to a kindergarten. She often asks for me. She has never told her maternal grandmother about the death of her mother. Her grandmother's family keeps it a secret from her other grandmother because she is in poor health and they don't want to shock her.

Grandmother asks Huang Ying, "Where is your mummy?"

Huang Ying, "She is working in Guangzhou City."

When her maternal grandmother is not around and if someone asks Huang Ying, "Where is Mummy?"

Huang Ying, "The bad people killed Mummy!"

"Why don't you tell your grandma?"

"She will cry and cry!"

When Huang Ying saw her mother's picture in a leaflet designed to expose the persecution called "A Guangzhou City Story" in the living room of a fellow practitioner, she said, "That's Mummy." She acted as if nothing had happened and went out and played. We thought she wasn't feeling hurt because she was too young, but we were wrong! When we left the room, she picked up the pamphlet and looked at her mother's picture and cried. Looking at her, we all cried. She is so considerate, although she is so young! She didn't want to upset her grandmother and she didn't want us to worry about her. I thank my wife for giving me such happiness when we were together and I thank Master Li for giving me such a wonderful young practitioner for a daughter.

Persecution details: On October 30, 1999 Luo Zhixiang went to Beijing to appeal for Falun Dafa and was sent back. She was detained for 20 days and fined 3,000 Yuan (2).

On June 13, 2000 she went to Beijing again to appeal and was beaten and detained for one day at the Tiananmen Square Police Station. On October 29, 2000 and November 20, 2002, Ms. Luo was sent twice to Division 2 of No. 1 Forced Labour Camp in Chini Town, Huadu District, Guangzhou City by perpetrators from the Baiyun District and Haizhu District, Guangzhou City, during which time the guards cruelly beat and force-fed her. They tortured her with a method called the "Dead Person's Bed." They shackled her and mentally tortured her.

Huang Guohua: In July 2004, the World Organization to Investigate the Persecution of Falun Gong investigated the Tianhe District's "610 Office" and people from the Tianhe District "610 Office" and the Xinghua Street "610 Office." These agencies in the Tianhe District searched for me, trying to persecute me. I went into exile. Right now I am applying for UN refugee status in Thailand, hoping to reach the USA as soon as possible in order to file a lawsuit against the perpetrators, including Jiang and those people personally responsible for my wife's death, in order to uphold justice. I wanted to take my daughter with me but the Nongken Construction Industry Corporation under which my daughter's identification was registered refused to acknowledge her ID. The Xinghua Street Police Department placed my daughter's identification under this company as part of a group. As a result, I could not obtain a copy of the group ID, so I could not apply for a passport for my daughter. I made the difficult choice to leave on my own.
