(Clearwisdom.net) Ms. Yang Yuhua, a 50-year-old practitioner from Daqing, was a teacher at Daqing Sixth Middle School and lived in the Caikulou District. Because she persisted in practicing Falun Gong, she was cruelly force-fed and died as a result on the afternoon of May 12, 2005.

Ms. Yang Yuhua started to practice Falun Gong in 1995. Her severe diabetes mellitus was healed without the need for medical treatment. Her thin and feeble body became strong. In following the principles of Falun Gong, Ms. Yang practiced Truthfulness, Compassion, Forbearance and always thought of the welfare of other people. To speak up for Falun Gong after the persecution began, Yang Yuhua went to Beijing to appeal for justice for Falun Gong in December of 2000. There she clarified the truth about the persecution of Falun Gong. Mr. Yang was arrested and imprisoned in Jinzhou Jail, and was released after 20 days.

Over the past several years, Ms. Yang resisted official pressure and continued to clarify the truth about the persecution of Falun Dafa. She did this in many ways, allowing numerous people who were deceived by the evil rumors and fabricated stories to understand the truth. On the night of April 16, 2005, police from the Tieren Station arrested Ms. Yang from home in secrecy and took her to the city detention center. Her house was searched and her property was confiscated. Ms. Yang protested the persecution by going on a hunger strike. On the sixth day of her hunger strike, she was cruelly force-fed. During this time she was also beaten in Room 405 of the detention center by criminal inmates Zhang Qingzhi, Zhang Weixia, and Li Caiyun. She was later forced to sit on an iron chair for six days. Near death at 10:00 a.m. on May 9, Yang Yuhua was again cruelly force-fed by several inmtes and guards. After moaning in pain for several minutes, Ms. Yang Yuhua died with her eyes and mouth wide open

In order to cover up the truth, the detention center brought Ms. Yang's body to the hospital for "emergency treatment." A witness said, "She was already dead, and they took her directly to the morgue." To cover up the facts, officials from the Public Security Bureau, the Procuratorate, and all the city courts held an emergency meeting that very day. They issued orders that nobody should defend Ms. Yang. One person, however, argued for justice on her behalf, so Public Security exerted pressure on this person's boss, threatening them "not to be involved with Falun Gong issues." Director Peng from the city detention center conspired with criminal inmates Zhang Qingzhi and Zhang Weixia from Room 405 to provide false testimony. Meanwhile, the police had blocked the hospital.

After all of the fabrications had been arranged, they finally notified Ms. Yang Yuhua's family on May 10. Seeing Ms. Yang's body covered with black and blue marks, her hair matted and sticky, and her eyes wide open, her family was heart-stricken. Her sister couldn't make Ms. Yang's eyes stay closed with her hand. She said sorrowfully, "Sister, I know you were not served with justice. I will get justice for you even if it costs me everything I own." At that moment, Yang's Yuhua's eyes slowly closed. Everyone was moved to see this.

One more good person who believed in "Truthfulness, Compassion, and Forbearance" has been killed! One more happy family has been broken up.

Presently, Dafa practitioners Zhang Guiyun, He Lihua, Yang Yuhuan, Han Naixiu, Zhang Wenhua, and 70-year-old Yang Huagui are still being persecuted in the city detention center.
