[PureInsight.org] [Editors' Note: Since Jiang Zemin and his henchmen started to persecute Falun Gong on July 20, 1999, more than 1121 Falun Gong practitioners are firmed to have died from the persecution as of November 15, 2004. The actual number is significantly higher, however. According to the government's own official internal statistics, the number of practitioners who died after being arrested had reached 1,600 by the end of 2001. The Chinese police illegally ransacked Falun Gong practitioners' homes and looted their personal property. Millions of practitioners have been sent to forced labor camps and prisons where they have been subject to both mental and physical torture. Falun Gong practitioners' children have become victims of the senseless persecution. Some Falun Gong practitioners' children have become homeless after the police abducted their parents. Some have been left to the care of their elderly grandparents who are barely capable of living independently. Some have been illegally detained in prison along with their parents. Some practitioners' children have become homeless orphans after their parents were tortured to death. Falun Gong practitioners who are artists are now revealing to the world with their paintbrushes that innocent children in China are also victims of Jiang Zemin's persecution. They hope their artwork will help raise the world's people's awareness, conscience and their help to end the inhumane persecution against Falun Gong practitioners and their children.]
"Homeless" (36in X 48in) is an oil painting created by Falun Gong practitioner Shen Daci in 2003. It tells the story of a little girl returning home from school only to find that the police had abducted her parents because they practice Falun Gong and that her home has been sealed by the Chinese Communist government's "610 Office," a Gestapo-like agency specifically created to persecute Falun Gong, with absolute power over every level of administration in the Party and all other political and judiciary systems.
