04/2010:  My mom was tortured to dangerous high blood pressure; the policemen released her but still detained her and my brother in their home.
On March 4, 2010, my mom Jiling Song, dad Zhansuo Wang and my younger brother Xia Wang were illegally arrested in China, the excuse of Chinese authority was they practiced Falun Gong, a peaceful meditation practice which has been banned & persecuted since 1999 in China. Dozens of local Chinese policemen broke into their house in Qingdao City without a warrant, their home was ransacked and their personal possessions were seized. Based on the information revealed by United Nations, Amnesty International and many other sources (both anecdotal and documental), I've learned that in China lots of Falun Gong practitioners have been tortured physically and mentally, and have suffered severe mistreatment while in detention center, labor camp, and jail since 1999. Thus, this makes me worry about my family members' safety very much.
My dad, former Vice President of the People's Intermediate Court of Xinjiang Province 7th Division, is a practicing lawyer of Qingdao Hengxintong Law Firm, he is a nice person, great dad and has a good reputation in legal professionals of China; my mom is a retiree from hospital and they spent their 35th Wedding Anniversary together in 2010; my brother is a computer hardware engineer. They don't do anything wrong just practicing Falun Gong to keep healthy.
Falun Gong is an ancient self-improvement practice of mind, body and spirit guided by the principle of Truthfulness-Compassion-Tolerance, this peaceful meditation practice has helped millions of people gain better health, improve their character, and become a better person in every aspect of life, my family members have benefited a lot from it. The whole exercises are free of charge; you may check more info online at www.FalunDafa.org and www.faluninfo.net. While Falun Gong is practiced openly in more than 110 countries, today in its homeland of China it is subject to well-documented, egregious human rights violations.
In the past years, there were some successful cases that Falun Gong practitioners were freed due to international attention and pressure on Chinese authorities, especially the huge pressure from foreign governments and foreigners. Here I respectfully request you to sign an online petition to express your concern about my family safety; it's also VERY helpful if you can send a letter to my dad in jail to encourage him and condemn these human rights violations to Falun Gong practitioners. I firmly believe that with help like yours, my family members will get free much sooner.
Please sign the petition to help rescue my family:
I, as the member of my family, knowing my dad detained in prison/my mom and younger brother detained at home for their belief in Truthfulness, Compassion and Tolerance, urgently and respectfully request your assistance in obtaining their release.
