Practitioner Ms. Tian Guifang lived in Xiaozhaizi Village, Chengyang District, Qingdao City, Shandong Province. After she began practicing Falun Dafa in 1997, she was cured of severe high blood pressure and many other illnesses.
On July 20, 1999, the authorities destroyed the peaceful environment in which she practiced Dafa. Her niece, Jiang Jing, went to appeal many times, and was brutally persecuted by officials from the Chengyang Town government. In March 2000, Jiang Jing went to Beijing to clarify the truth but was abducted and detained by officials from the Chengyang Town government. She was held in the basement of the Xinyuan Hotel in Chengzi for six months, during which time she was ruthlessly tortured.
In October 2000, Xin Nuoming, the newly appointed Politics and Law Committee secretary for Chengyang Town, along with members of the Xiaozhaizi Village Committee, went to arrest her niece Jiang Jing. Tian Guifang begged the perpetrators to spare Jiang Jing, but they ignored her pleas.
They abducted Jiang Jing and sent her to a mental hospital. She clarified the truth about Dafa to the hospital staff and explained to them that the Dafa practitioners are innocent people being wrongfully persecuted, and that persecutors would be punished according to their deeds. However, the head of the hospital, along with Party head Ding and other hospital staff went against their professional ethics. They pinned Jiang Jing to the floor and injected her with drugs used to treat psychotics. Several minutes later the drugs took effect and Jiang Jing felt her heart race. She felt an inexplicable fear as her vision blurred. She could not sit still, and her mouth was dry. This physical torture and mental abuse lasted for about a month before Jiang Jing escaped from the hospital.
In order to arrest her again, officers often went to her home in the middle of the night. Tian Guifang fell ill from countless harassment, severe mental pressure, and disruption of the environment in which she practiced Dafa. She was hospitalized in 2001.
On July 20, 2003, Jiang Jing went to Tiananmen Square and shouted, "Falun Dafa is good." She clarified the truth to a man, possibly a plainclothes police officer, and was arrested. Officers from the Chengyang District and from the Chengyang Town government sent her to the Wangcun Women's Prison in Zibo City to be held for three years. With powerful righteous thoughts she held an 80-day hunger strike and broke free from the labor camp, but was compelled to stay away from home to avoid further persecution.
Tian Guifang practiced Dafa at home but did not study the Fa well. The evil took advantage of her gaps and persecuted her. She passed away on April 7, 2005 at the age of 86.
