For Xu Na: Take Action to Free Chinese Woman Imprisoned for Her Faith
Ms. Xu Na, an award-winning Chinese artist, has been arrested a third time in China for practicing Falun Gong. The Falun Dafa Information Center is urgently calling on conscientious individuals worldwide to pressure Chinese authorities to secure her release.
Ms. Xu was detained by police on July 19, 2020 while at a friend’s home in Beijing. The next day police ransacked her home, confiscating all of her digital devices and cameras. Incidentally July 20 marked the 21st year of persecution against Falun Gong by the Chinese communist regime. Ms. Xu’s elderly father was left without a caretaker and not told where his daughter was taken.
In 2008 Ms. Xu’s husband was killed in custody after being arrested ahead of the Beijing Olympics for practicing Falun Gong. The couple’s suffering at the time was documented by Amnesty International, Freedom House, and the United Nations Rapporteur on Extrajudicial Executions as well as reported by media outlets including The New York Times, The Times of London, the Associated Press, and The Epoch Times.
Telephone the detention center to call for Ms. Xu Na’s release. Let them know that people in the international community are concerned for her welfare, and will accept neither the abuse of Ms. Xu nor other inmates in her position. You do not need to be able to speak Chinese to make a difference.
