Are you celebrating a holiday this December? Gathering in a place of worship? Displaying a symbol of your faith?
I was tortured for my faith — forced into a Chinese "re-education through labor" camp for more than two terrifying years for being a practitioner of Falun Gong.
I will never forget the day when seven policemen rushed into my home and arrested me. I was preparing a bath for my daughter – she was only 1 ½ years old.
The police found a few Falun Gong books – that was their so-called "evidence." I was accused of "resisting the implementation of national laws" and "disturbing social order" and was sent to a labor camp in Beijing.
The only thing that protected me in the forced labor camp was the attention raised by Amnesty International and people like you.
