Ms. Gu Xiuxian (36), was a practitioner from Zhaoshitun, Kaoshan Village, Lanlin Town, Shuangcheng City, Helongjiang Province. At around 6 or 7 p.m. on February 28, 2004, she was taken from her home by over 10 people, including the chief of the Lanling Town Police Station, Zhao Yinglin, the town government officer, Li Jiaming, and the head of the village, Zhang Zhifa, and sent to Detention Center No. 2 in Shuangcheng City. Gu Xiuxian repeatedly explained the truth about Falun Gong to the policemen and went on a hunger strike to protest her detention. She was force-fed violently. Only five days later, on the morning of March 4, 2004 Gu Xiuxian died.
