Mr. Hu Minxin, born in 1934, was a practitioner in Sichuan. He started practicing Falun Gong in March 1995 and benefited in many ways. Mr. Hu insisted on practicing even after the government suppression of Falun Gong began. He was ordered to the police station to talk about his "realization of Falun Gong." He went to Beijing in July 2000 to clarify the truth about Dafa and was detained for half a month. From February 28 to March 15, 2001, Mr. Hu was detained at a farm, where he was brainwashed and persecuted. Mr. Hu got a high fever from the harsh treatment but was not allowed to go home. In May 2001, because of the great mental pressure and having no way to live since his salary had been suspended, Mr. Hu became ill, fell down, and never got up again.
