(Clearwisdom.net) Falun Dafa practitioner Ms. Peng Chengrong, age 65, from Tongde District, Panzhihua City, Sichuan Province has been frequently persecuted since July 20, 1999. In January 2000 she was arrested by the police in Yumen District, Yanbian County, Panzhihua City while distributing truth-clarification materials, and illegally detained for six months. In July 2001, she was again jailed for a week for clarifying the facts of Falun Gong in the area of Lengshuijing, Yanbian County. Since then, local police and village government agents have been harassing her, forcing her to leave home and wander about. During this period both her physical and mental health became seriously damaged. She passed away on November 30, 2006.

Ms. Peng Xiuling, 37, employed by Chongqing Chuandong Drilling and Testing Company, was forced to retire with "buyout pay" because she was practicing Falun Gong. At the end of 2000, while passing out truth-clarification materials at Shichuan District, she was arrested and later illegally sentenced to Maojiashan Labor Camp in Chongqing for further persecution. On May 13, 2001, World Falun Dafa Day, practitioners--including Peng Xiuling--who were detained in the labor camp held out banners reading: "Falun Dafa is good" and "Falun Dafa is righteous." As a result, they were handcuffed and hung up for seven days. Her husband divorced her during her labor-camp sentence. She was released at the beginning of 2003. After leaving the labor camp, she went to work for a supermarket, which discharged her shortly thereafter because the police frequently disturbed her at work. She also found a job selling newspapers, but the position didn’t last long because she was suspected of distributing truth-clarification papers. Now she is dead for some unknown reasons; some one said that she was killed by the government officials, although this still remains unknown.

Ms. Huang Xuezhi of Liaoning Province was retired from the Dalian Wool Dress Making Factory. She started practicing Falun Gong in 1994 and after that all her sicknesses disappeared. She was arrested in September 1999 by policeman Nie Binglun and imprisoned in Dalian City Detention Center for 15 days for practicing Falun Dafa, and then was transferred to Dalian City Narcotic Rehabilitation Center for another month. In February 2001, while passing out truth-clarification materials, she was again arrested by Ganjingzi Station police and sent to Dalian Labor Camp for a year. After her release, she was constantly harassed by community agents and policemen without a single day of rest. On May 10, 2003 she suffered a stroke, and on November 8, 2006 she passed away.

Ms. Chen Lanlan of Mayang County, Hunan Province, age 67, started practicing Falun Dafa in 1998. Prior to becoming a Dafa practitioner, she had lots of heath problems, but after attaining Dafa, her physical problems all disappeared. In August 2000, while she was in Beijing appealing for justice, she was arrested, taken back home, and money was extorted from her. Since then, she has been constantly harassed by Communist Party members. She died in May 2006.

Ms. Li Yuqin, 66, from Northeastern China, had been monitored by local police for a long time. She went to Beijing on April 25, 1999 to appeal for Falun Dafa.. Her daughter went to Beijing too and was then discharged from work. Their residence was twice ransacked, and lots of Dafa books and materials were taken away. Because of the continuous threats, intimidation, and disturbance, and unbearable hurt both physically and mentally, Ms. Li Yuqin passed away in May 2002.

Ms. Lou Ciying from Shanghsi, 67, had tuberculosis and other physical problems. After practicing Falun Gong, however, all her physical problems were gone. Since 7/20/1999, Falun Gong practice was not officially permitted, thereby preventing her from practicing and causing her death due to relapsing from her old illnesses.
