Fifty-four-year-old Ms. Liu Guilian was a retiree from the Heavy Machinery Factory in Jiaozuo City, Henan Province. Ms. Liu started practicing Falun Gong in 1998. During the Chinese New Year of 2001, Ms. Liu was put in a brainwashing center for one month, but she remained steadfast in practicing Dafa and clarifying the truth. The lawless officers often visited and harassed her on holidays and the so-called sensitive dates. Because of the excessive pressure, Ms. Liu became sick and died in March of 2005.
