Mr. Li Shouchen, 50 years old, was a Falun Dafa practitioner in Tonghua County, Jilin Province. He started to practice Falun Gong in December 1997. He recovered from several diseases, including uremia. Before he practiced Falun Gong, he had spent more than ten thousand yuan for medical treatment. He was unskilled and bad off financially. After he practiced Falun Gong, it seemed like he could do anything. Falun Gong gave him a new life. Before July 20, 1999, his home was a practice site. When the persecution of Falun Gong began, the local police and the officials in his village and hometown repeatedly went to his home and harassed him. They searched his house without a warrant for Falun Gong books and threatened him. His elder sister was illegally detained, and Mr. Li suffered enormous persecution. He couldn't take the tremendous mental stress and his health deteriorated. Mr. Li passed away on December 21, 2000.
