Mr. Wang Zhenshan was a 50-year old resident of Qingle Village, Xinxingmanzu Town, Shuangcheng City, Heilongjiang Province. He began to practice Falun Dafa in 1996. He was firm in his cultivation and therefore enjoyed good health. Since July 20, 1999, the persecutors came to his home frequently and harassed him. They searched for Falun Dafa books and Teacher's pictures throughout his home. This persecution was too much for Mr. Wang and he became sick to the point of being bedridden. One year later, he went to Beijing to appeal in 2002, despite his physical condition. After he safely returned, members of the village and town 610 Office harassed him many times. As a result, his health condition worsened and Mr. Wang died in December of 2003 .
