Over the last several years, Dafa practitioner Mr. Yang Zhiwen from Anshan City, Liaoning Province was constantly arrested, beaten, detained and sentenced to labor camps by the Chinese Communist Party (CCP). He was once forced to leave home and became destitute and homeless in order to avoid persecution and arrest. The long-term brutal persecution wrecked Mr. Yang's health, and he passed away on October 20, 2006. He was fifty-four years old.
