Have I Lost Mom Too?

Zou Rongfa (female) was born in November 1999. At that time, her father, Zou Songtao, was held in a detention center because he had gone to Beijing to appeal to the government to stop persecuting Falun Gong. Mr. Zou was not released until the end of December 1999. He had been in and out of jail many times because he was a Falun Gong practitioner.


The director of the Taixi Police Station, Gong Guoquan, once handcuffed Mr. Zou to an iron chair. The director beat him with the sole of his shoe, causing his head to bleed and swell to twice its size, beyond the point of recognition. He was unconscious for more than 20 minutes.


In July of 2000, Mr. Zou was sent to the Qingdao City Forced Labor Camp. Later, at the end of September 2000, he was transferred to the Wangcun Forced Labor Camp in Zibo City. On the morning of November 3, 2000, policemen Zheng Wanxin, Shao Zhenghua, and others took Mr. Zou into an interrogation room, shocked him with electric batons, and killed him within two hours. Rongfa lost her father.


After the death of Mr. Zou, the police kept harassing and closely watching Rongfa’s mother, Zhang Yunhe. In February 2002, the police arrested Ms. Zhang Yunhe and detained her at the Dashan Detention Center, Qingdao City. The police refused to release any information about her to her family. Zou Rongfa thus was separated from her mother.


Rongfa had to stay with her grandmother, who was over 60 years old. However, her grandmother became ill and died in August 2001 from the pain of losing her son-in-law and being separated from her daughter.


Rongfa has lost her father, her mother, and her grandmother, the three people she loved the most. Whenever she misses her family, she steps up on a little stool, reaches up and kisses her Daddy’s box of ashes.
