(Clearwisdom.net) Mr. Xu Mingdong, 73, and his wife Mrs. Xu Anqi were Falun Dafa practitioners from Yulin City, Guangxi Province. After they retired in 1995 they were fortunate to learn Falun Dafa. Their minds and bodies improved and were purified. During the 2001 Chinese New Year, they were illegally arrested by officers from the Yulin City Police Department and were sent to the Yulin City Detention Center where they were locked up for over two months. During this time, Mrs. Xu's mind and body were injured. After her release, Mrs. Xu died in June 2002. Mr. Xu Mingdong lived with his mother, who was in her 90s. He was continually harassed and monitored. These high-pressure circumstances took their toll on Mr. Xu. He showed symptoms of hydrocephalus in late 2004 and died on April 22, 2005.
Ms. Chen Ying, 57, resided in the Xiaguan District, Nanjing City, Jiangsu Province. Ms. Chen was arrested in 1999 and was persecuted to the brink of death in a forced labor camp. The evildoers were afraid of taking responsibility and sent her back home that same year. Ms. Chen died one month later.

She was very thin and had a bad temper. Through studying Zhuan Falun and doing the five sets of exercises, she benefited significantly, both mentally and physically. She had a normal life and gradually developed an open mind. Black hair surprisingly grew in place of her white hair. Her family was amazed. After July 20, 1999, during the course of evil propaganda and the Chinese Communist Party's (CCP) arrest of Dafa practitioners, she withstood extreme pressure from the propaganda and the severe circumstances, and persisted in practicing for a long time. Before the 2002 Chinese New Year, Ms. Xiao died while under high pressure from a new round of arrests of Falun Dafa practitioners carried out by the 610 Office in Yulin City.
Ms. Chen Jiafang, 65, was a resident of the Dachang District, Nanjing City, Jiangsu Province. Ms. Chen was the volunteer contact person for the Dachang District.

Mr. Wang Fuxin was a resident of the Dachang District, Nanjing City, Jiangsu Province, and an employee of the Nanjing Chemical Industry Cooperation. When the persecution started in 1999, persons from the street residential committee, along with police officers, often went to his home to harass him and force him to "reform," which resulted in his old illnesses relapsing. Mr. Wang died in spring 2004.
Mr. Xu Taibin was a resident of Nanjing City, Jiangsu Province. He was a faculty member of Nanjing Agriculture University and lived in Houzaimen.

When he arrived at the gate of the park, police officers in hiding from the Xiaofuqiao Police Station arrested him. In the police station he was interrogated and threatened. They ransacked his home and confiscated all his Dafa books. Because at that time he didn't understand the Fa deeply enough, under pressure he gave his fingerprints on the record and signed a guarantee statement. Later, he solemnly declared on the Minghui/Clearwisdom website these actions were invalid and that he would firmly practice Dafa. Subsequently, Gao Yupu, party secretary of the No. 2 Group, Puming Village often led the local police to harass and threaten him.

After the evil CCP began to persecute Falun Gong on July 20, 1999, to validate Dafa Mr. Ou went to Beijing to appeal in December 1999. He was arrested while he was doing the exercises.
