Mr. Jiang Bingren was a 70-year-old retired worker from Nanzhai Village, Nanhao Town, Changle County in Shandong Province. Previous to cultivating Falun Gong, Mr. Jiang had many illnesses that the hospital said were incurable. After he began to cultivate Dafa, his illnesses went away and his health improved.

To validate Dafa, Mr. Jiang went to Beijing to tell people "Falun Dafa is good," but he was arrested and sentenced to three years of forced labor. Mr. Jiang escaped after two months. On January 29, 2003, he was arrested again and jailed for over 70 days, during which time the authorities forced him to walk along the street to humiliate him. He was made to stand barefoot in the snow for several hours at a time, and was often beaten and deprived of sleep. He was not allowed to go home during the New Year's Day Festival either. Mr. Jiang's health continued to deteriorate after his release due to the extreme persecution he was subjected to, and he died in July 2003.
