Ms. Tian Zhirong, 49 years old, lived at Number 40, Aiguo Li, Aiguo Road, the Hexi District in Tianjin. She started practicing Falun Gong in 1998. Before then she suffered from many illnesses and needed frequent emergency treatment. Following surgery, the wounds left would not heal. After Ms. Tian began practicing Falun Gong, the illnesses disappeared without her taking any medication, and she became healthy. After the Chinese Communist Party started to persecute Falun Gong, on December 31, 2000 Tian Zhirong went to Beijing by herself to appeal for justice for Falun Gong, despite the fact that she did not know much about how to get there. Later, Ms. Tian was arrested and incarcerated in the Banqiao Forced Labor Camp in Tianjin. She firmly believed in Dafa and has never been brainwashed by the evildoers. After suffering various physical tortures and mental torment, Tian Zhirong became weak. Even when she was released on medical parole for treatment, the police still frequently harassed her. Her husband was forced to divorce her under the intense pressure. In February 2002, Ms. Tian was again arrested and taken back to the forced labor camp for further persecution. After her term was due and she was released, the police still kept harassing and persecuting her. As a result of the relentless persecution, Tian Zhirong died on June 11, 2005.
