Five Dafa Practitioners from Liaoning, Inner Mongolia Provinces and Chongqing City Died As A Result of Persecution
(Clearwisdom.net) Mr. Li Baoqing, age thirty-four, used to work at Huaguang Electronic Company in Jinzhou City in the Advertising Department. He was kind and generous, tall and strong, and all his colleagues loved and respected him. He started to practice Falun Dafa in 1994. After the persecution began in 1999, he went to Beijing to appeal for Dafa and was detained many times. The government officials and police tried to force him give up his belief in "Truthfulness, Compassion, Forbearance" in vain. He was demoted and worked in a factory. In October 1999, he was sentenced to two years in a forced-labor camp. He suffered all sorts of torture in a labor camp in Jinzhou City. His company fired him and three other Dafa practitioners while he was incarcerated. They confiscated his house, and his wife divorced him and took all the money they had saved together. When he was released in 2001, he had lost everything. With fellow practitioner's help and support, he still participated in truth-clarification. But the long-term persecution destroyed his health, affected his spirit and cut off his income. On July 3, 2005, he died on the way to the hospital.
Mrs. Wang Yafang, age fifty, lived in Jinchang-Gouliang Town, Aohan Flag, Chifeng City, Inner Mongolia. She had diabetes and many other illnesses before she began practicing Dafa. After she began to practice, all her illnesses disappeared. The police raided her home and confiscated many belongings in 2002. She left home to avoid further persecution and became destitute. She died on January 6, 2006, after many years of persecution.
Mrs. Zhang Shiyu was born in 1946. She worked in a fabric factory in Chongqing City. In October 1999, Mrs. Zhang Shiyu and Mrs. Li Guihua accompanied each other to go to Beijing to appeal for Dafa. One week later, both their families received police notification asking them to go to Beijing and take their ashes back home. When they arrived in Beijing, the police forbade them from asking any questions. They were forbidden to hold memorial services or funerals for them. The family, to this day, still has no idea what happened.
Mrs. Zhang Guihua, age seventy-four, retired from the Tuberculosis Hospital in Jinzhou City. She was very ill and became bed-ridden in 1996. After her daughter, who practices Falun Dafa, gave her audiotapes of Master's lectures, she was able to walk again after she listened to the tapes. After the persecution began in 1999, her daughter was sentenced to a labor camp. She could not handle this tremendous blow and became ill. On her death bed, she held on to her daughter's picture and the sweater that her daughter knitted for her and would not let them go. Family members contacted the Masanjia Labor Camp numerous times asking them to let the dying mother see her daughter one last time but were refused. Mrs. Zhang Guihua died in November 1999 in agony.
Mr. Yao Hanzhang, 74, also a retiree of the Jinzhou Tuberculosis Hospital, was Mrs. Zhang Guihua's husband. He retired from the Tuberculosis Hospital in Jinzhou. After he practiced Dafa in 1996, he recovered from a massive heart attack and his lung cancer disappeared. After his daughter was released from Masanjia Labor Camp, he went to her work place and asked the secretary of the company to let her go back to work, but was refused. That was the last blow to his mind and body. He passed away on June 25, 2000.
