Ms. Sun Xueyan, born in 1931, lived at the 7th Group, 31st Neighborhood, Qicaihong Community of Guanshan Administrative District, Beipiao City, Liaoning Province. Because Ms. Sun distributed Falun Gong truth-clarifying materials, she had been detained several times by the Beipiao Detention Center and Guanshan Police Station in Beipiao City. At one time, she was denied sleep for six consecutive days. In November 2002, Sun Xueyan was once again imprisoned in the Beipiao Detention Center. She went on hunger strike to protest the persecution. Later, her health was in desperate condition and she was set free. After she returned home, her fever did not subside, and she passed away on January 23, 2003.
