  1. Tao Jiaxiu, female, approximately 30, was self-employed and originally the head of the Panzhihua City Falun Gong Assistant Center.

  2. Xu Langzhou, male, 29, was originally an officer in the Panzhihua City police force. After April 25, 1999, he was fired from his job because he would not give up practicing Falun Gong. He was arrested and detained at Wanyaoshu Detention Center in 2000 after practicing the exercises in front of his house with a few local practitioners. Due to the fact that he continued to clarify the truth about Falun Gong to other inmates and practice the exercises, he was tied to a steel bed. He was unlawfully sentenced to two and half years in a forced labor camp in March 2001 and is currently experiencing enormous mental and physical torture at the Sichuan Province Mianyang City Xinhua Forced Labor Camp.
  3. Luo Yangsheng, male, approximately 60, is a retired worker. Since July 20, 1999, he has continuously appealed to Beijing and practiced the exercises in Tiananmen Square. The last time he went to appeal, officials from Panhuazhi City Administration Center in Beijing forcefully detained him. Early in the morning, Luo planned to go again to Tiananmen Square, so he jumped from an upstairs window. Because the window was so high off the ground, he suffered multiple fractures to his legs. Both Beijing Hospital and Panzhihua Hospital were unable to set the fractures properly. However, because of his firm belief in Dafa, he was able to recover from his previous condition of being unable to look after himself. Like magic, he was able to stand up after five months. His recovery was seen as a threat to the local police who immediately and unlawfully put his residence under surveillance. After that he was arrested and jailed at the city's Wanyaoshu Detention Center for distributing truth-clarification materials. Later he was transferred to the Sichuan Province Mianyang City Xinhua Labor Camp and has not returned.

Between January and March 2001, he peacefully practiced the exercises in Tiananmen Square. During his unlawful detainment at Wanyaoshu Detention Center, he continued to clarify the truth, introduce the Fa to the people, and practice the exercises. Because of this, police forced him to wear two shackles weighing 35.5kg in total. In May 2001, he was illegally transferred to the Sichuan Mianyang City Xinhua Labor Camp, where he suffered cruel mental and physical torture. Under the intense pressure at Xinhua Labor Camp, he was forced to write the "Three Statements" (statements against Falun Dafa) against his will.

When the symptoms surfaced, she was unable to look after herself and could not be cured by any medical treatment. After practicing Falun Dafa, she regained her health. In order to clarify the truth to the government, she walked to Beijing and used her personal experience to tell people that Falun Dafa is good. In the Wanyaoshu Detention Center she went on a hunger strike in protest of the brutal treatment she received.
