Falun Dafa practitioner Ms. Long Lianqiu, 53, was from the Chengguan District of Gansu Province. She obtained the Fa in late 1998. After she began practicing, her many diseases disappeared, and she regained her health. She died on September 11, 2005, however, after several years of continuous harassment and detention.

Ms. Long went to Beijing to appeal for justice for Falun Dafa twice during 2001. Officers from the Jingyuan Road Police Station in Lanzhou arrested her, escorted her back to her home province, and detained her for over 15 days. During 2002, the police harassed her in her home on numerous occasions and confiscated all of her Falun Dafa books and materials. They also arrested her and forced her to work with other prisoners for more than 12 hours a day. She became ill because of this inhumane treatment. After her family secured her release, however, the police continued to harass her, both by phone and in her own home. As a result, her spirit suffered severely. On two occasions she lost consciousness for eight hours.

Officers from the Jingyuan Road Police Station, together with personnel from the security office of the former Fenglei Plant, arrested Ms. Long and took her to the brainwashing center in Gongjiawan, Lanzhou City. After receiving brutal treatment, she suffered a cerebral hemorrhage and developed hemiplegia. She was later released on bail. At the same time, the police arrested her daughter Zhang Ping and detained her in the Hualinping No. 2 Detention Center in Lanzhou City.

Once she learned of her daughter's whereabouts, Ms. Long became very concerned. Meanwhile, the police continued coming to her home to intimidate her. She finally died on September 11, 2005.

The brainwashing center in Gongjiawan is located in an old storage yard. The brainwashing center is on one side of the yard, and a forced labor camp is on the other. They are separated by a high wall along with heavy iron doors, windows, and sharpened stakes. The sign displayed to the public reads, "Lanzhou City Legal Training School," but the real purpose of the center is to persecute Falun Gong practitioners, who make up the entire detainee population. More than 100 practitioners have been detained there, ranging from teens to seniors over 70 years of age. The center's personnel have intimidated, deceived, and tortured them, trying in vain to force them to give up the practice.
