(Clearwisdom.net) Mr. Zhu Shuyue was a 54-year-old Falun Gong practitioner from Jiangmifeng Town, Jilin City, Jilin Province. Before practicing Falun Gong, he could not walk normally due to his illness. He tried many kinds of treatment but without any success. In1996, Mr. Zhu started to practice Falun Gong and recovered through his cultivation practice. However, since the suppression of Falun Gong by the CCP began on July 20, 1999, Mr. Zhu suffered tremendously both mentally and physically. He could no longer live a normal life, and was arrested and taken to brainwashing classes twice. As a result, Mr. Zhu had a relapse of his old illness and passed away on June 6, 2005.
Ms. Huo Shuwen was a 40-year-old Falun Gong practitioner from Harbin City, Heilongjiang Province. She came across Falun Dafa in July 2002 at the Harbin Wanjia Forced Labor Camp as a prisoner there. After witnessing the miracle of Dafa and the persecution of Dafa disciples, she resolutely decided to learn the practice and to expose the persecution of Falun Gong practitioners in the Wanjia Forced Labor Camp. Ms. Huo verified how practitioners Ms. Liu Limei and Ms. Fu Guilan were tortured to death there. Because she too practiced Falun Gong, she was subjected to persecution there as well, leading to heart disease. When her term was up in June 2004, it was too late for treatment and she died on July 2, 2005.
Mr. Zhang Xueyu was a 68-year-old Falun Gong practitioner from Harbin City in Heilongjiang Province. He was a retired worker. On the night of February 28, 2003, his wife was arrested from home by local police and the head of the neighborhood committee, and was subsequently illegally sentenced to two years of forced labor. Mr. Zhang worried a lot about his wife day and night. As a result, his illness became more and more serious. He could not take care of himself and had nobody else to look after him either. In April 2004, Mr. Zhang passed away.
Ms. Xin Jianfen was a practitioner from Dingzhou City, Hebei Province. She lived by the No. 2 Middle School. Since July 20, 1999, she had been incarcerated at the Dingzhou City Detention Center for a long period of time and subjected to all sorts of torture methods. However, Ms. Xin was steadfast in cultivation despite the inhuman persecution. She was released to go home later on. Because Ms. Xin suffered tremendously physically and mentally, she died on April 30, 2005. During her illegal detention period, her daughter Wang Juan was persecuted to death at the Mancheng County Prison in Hebei Province for continuing to practice Falun Gong. At the time when Ms. Xin passed away, her daughter-in-law, whose recent situation is unknown, was still illegally jailed at the Baoding Forced Labor Camp in Hebei Province for practicing Falun Gong.
