Seven Practitioners from Hebei, Liaoning, and Jilin Provinces Die as a Result of Persecution

Falun Gong practitioner Ms. Zhang Qiaozhen, 53, lived in Zhao County, Hebei Province. She suffered from various illnesses and could not do any household chores before she started practising Falun Gong in 1996. Falun Gong cured all of her illnesses. After the Communist Party began the persecution on July 20th, 1999, she went to Beijing to appeal for Falun Gong. Local police frequently harassed her and ransacked her home. She was arrested on December 19th, 2000, and held at the township government compound. The officials extorted 500 yuan1 from her. She passed away on April 14th, 2002, as a result of the persecution.

Practitioner Ms. Wang Zhiqiang, 40, lived in Benxi City, Liaoning Province. She went to Beijing twice to appeal and was arrested many times. Her home was ransacked multiple times. She was held in custody centres, detention centres, brainwashing classes and forced labour camps, where she was savagely tortured. She broke free and lived a homeless life. She died on December 11th, 2005.

Practitioner Ms. Ma Rixia, 52, lived in Gaizhou City, Liaoning Province. She started practising Falun Gong in 1997. In October 2001 she went to Beijing to appeal and was held at the Yingkou City Police Department for more than a month. She was devastated by the persecution and the intense pressure and passed away on January 10th, 2006.

Practitioner Mr. Yu Dehe, 56, lived on the Beishan Ginseng Farm in Wanliang Town, Fusong County, Jilin Province. He started practising Falun Gong in 1998. On January 19th, 2006, his son-in-law, Dong Enhao, and Dong Enhao's father, Dong Hua, both practitioners, were persecuted. The persecutors were individuals from the Wanliang Town Police Station. His daughter, Yu Huaimei, stayed home with her three children. Yu Dehe died around February 5th, 2006. His son-in-law, Dong Enhao, is still being persecuted at the Fusong County Detention Centre. Dong Hua has been released but the police keep watching, harassing, and intimidating him.

Practitioners Ms. Dong Lirong, 69, Mr. Xu Lianxian, 70, and Ms. Zhang Likun, 53, from Gaizhou City, Liaoning Province, were cured of their illnesses after practising Dafa. The malicious Communist Party started the persecution on July 20th, 1999. Because they lost the environment where they could practise Falun Gong peacefully, Ms. Dong died on November 25th, 2005, Mr. Xu died on January 10th, 2006, and Ms. Zhang died on January 16th, 2006.
