Two Female Practitioners Die as a Result of Persecution
Ms. Jiang Xiuyun was a practitioner from Gulou District, Nanjing City, Jiangsu Province. Because she refused to give up her belief in Dafa, she was abducted at the end of 2000 and sent to the Judong Women's Labor Camp where she was tortured for a year. There she was forced to do hard labor and go through brainwashing. As a result, she became extremely weak and developed liver problems. In June 2001, she was released on medical parole. However, after she returned home, Yijiangmen Police Station and local 610 Office personnel still came to harass and monitor her, causing great damage to both her body and mind. She became weaker and weaker. She died in October 2005, at the age of 68.
Ms. Yu Wangjin, 56, was a practitioner living on Yangluo Street, Xinzhou District, Wuhan City, Hubei Province. Before she took up the practice of Falun Gong in 1997, she suffered from severe high blood pressure, kidney problems, shoulder pain, and a slipped disk. She tried different medicine and practiced many other forms of Qigong, but none of them helped. However, Dafa gave her a healthy body.
After the persecution began, Ms. Yu made use of all her time to clarify the truth to her family, friends and people she met. In 2000 she went to Beijing to appeal for Falun Gong. As a result, she was considered a target for persecution. Her work unit, the Industrial and Commercial Bank, as well as relevant departments monitored and harassed her frequently. They also tried to force her to write a "guarantee letter". In addition, they also instigated her family members, who were deceived by the lies and afraid of repercussions, to put pressure on her. As a result, Ms. Yu could not cultivate well. She passed away on March 25, 2006.
