Dafa practitioner Ms. Liu Wenyu was 53 years old and worked at Tianshui City's Railroad Hospital. She began practicing Falun Gong in October 1998. In late December 1999, she went to Beijing to appeal oh behalf of Falun Dafa. Beijing police detained her for 15 days and fined her 4,000 Yuan. In December 2000, she went to Tiananmen Square and shouted "Falun Dafa is good!" She was sent back to Tianshui City and sentenced to two years of forced labor without any trial, to be served at the Anning District Labor Camp in Lanzhou City. Ms. Liu Wenyu refused to cooperate with the labor camp personnel as she was not a criminal. She was force-fed as a form of torture, which caused her stomach to bleed profusely. Aside from this abuse, she was subjected to all manner of additional brutal torture. After her release, the authorities from the Beidao District constantly harassed her. She passed away in February 2004.
