Ms. Dong Guilan was a 47-year-old from Xinyi Village, Wujia Township, Shuangcheng City, Helongjiang Province. She went to Beijing to appeal for Falun Gong in 2001; she was arrested and sent back to her hometown. Ms. Dong was detained at the Shuangcheng Detention Center for 15 days and had to pay 2,000 yuan. In 2002, Ms. Dong was arrested for clarifying the truth about Falun Gong. She was again detained at the Shuangcheng Detention Center. Ever since then, she was under a lot of pressure, and her health was also affected. When Dong Guilan was sent to Wanjia Forced Labor Camp, the labor camp refused to admit her, so she was sent home. Ms. Dong passed away in March 2004.
