Case Description:

Wang Yuru, a sixty-year-old farmer from the south side of Qu County in Sichuan Province, was sent back to the Qu county detention center in late January of this year because she went to Beijing to appeal to the Chinese government. 

On February 4, the police tried to force her to write a promise stating that she would never practice Falun Gong. She firmly refused this request.  As a result, the police beat her badly, trying to force her to write the promise.  Faced with such evil despotic power, Wang endured the enormous pain and told them that she would still practice Falun Gong even if she were beaten to death.  Later, Wang really was beaten to death.
