Mr. Bi Xuming, 79 years old, was a retired worker in the road maintenance section of Nong'an County, Jilin Province. He started to practice Falun Dafa in 1997. After July 20, 1999, he went to the provincial government to appeal for help and clarified the facts about the persecution. In February 2000, he went to Beijing to appeal for justice for Falun Gong. He was taken back to the local lockup and suffered from persecution. He was also fined 2,000 yuan. After he was released, his company stopped paying his wages. Because he suffered severe persecution of both body and mind, he died on November 3, 2000.
