Ms. Zhou Qin was a 52-year-old Falun Dafa practitioner in Nanchang City, Jiangxi Province. She was a temporary worker for Donghu District Bureau of Industry and Commerce. She began to practice Falun Gong in 1997 and recovered from many diseases. After Falun Gong was banned on July 20, 1999, her workplace fired her with the excuse that she was a practitioner. She applied for many jobs but was unsuccessful because it was known that she practiced Falun Gong. In addition, the resident's committee, local police and her family ceaselessly harassed and threatened her, causing damage to her body and mind. Her illnesses ultimately returned and she died in 2000.
