Wang Gaizhi - 王改芝
Wang Gaizhi, a 47 year-old woman, was from Shifosi Village, Zhenping County, Henan Province. She had been suffering a lot of pain from cancer to her body and torment to her mind before she started practicing Falun Dafa. After practicing, she became energetic and totally recovered. After July 22, 1999, she went to appeal in Beijing twice and to tell the government and people about her personal experiences and about the great changes and benefits that happened to her body and mind after practicing Falun Dafa. She wanted to validate that Dafa is best for the country and it has done no harm to anyone at all. On February 9, 2000, she went to Beijing for the second time. Afterward, she was detained, taken back and put into Zhenping County Detention Center. While she was in custody, she was forced to work more than ten hours everyday and was often tortured by the guard named Cao, whenever she was found practicing. The last time, the guards in the detention center tortured her five days continuously in such an extremely cruel way that it would have been difficult for anyone to endure. Normally, everyday people could not tolerate the torture for even half a day. She was tortured to her last gasp of breath. Under the strongest requests from her relatives, police released her to them after extorting 500 Yuan [US$62]. Twenty days later, on May 26, 2000, she died at home, due the inhumane brutal tortures inflicted on her by those vicious guards.
