Ms. Deng Wenjie, 56, lived in Siping City, Jilin Province. She started practicing Falun Gong in 1997. She previously suffered from gynecological problems and severe stomach problems, but she completely recovered one month after she started practicing Falun Gong. In 2001 police arrested her when she was clarifying the truth and held her at a labor camp. Deng Wenjie held a hunger strike to protest the persecution, and the guards brutally force-fed her. They broke a major artery with the feeding tube, and she died quickly afterwards.
