Mr. Fu Zhongxin was a 76-year-old retiree living at the Erlu Village, Hekou District, Dongying City, Shandong Province. His whole family practiced Falun Dafa and benefited from the practice. After Jiang's regime started the persecution in July 1999, his family went to Beijing many times to appeal for the right to practice Falun Dafa. However, the whole family suffered a lot because of the brutal persecution. Fu's eldest son was sent to a forced labor camp for three years, his second daughter-in-law endured long-term torture in a brainwashing center, his eldest daughter and her husband were also arrested and suffered both short-term and long-term detentions just because they went to Beijing to appeal. During the 2002 Chinese New Year period, his family was reduced to just him, his two granddaughters (one 12, one 14 years old) and a 13-year-old grandson. Nobody helped the family. Even so, police officers still frequently harassed them. The high pressure and burden became too much for him. He died miserably on June 15, 2002.
