Dafa Practitioner Zhang Fengyun from Lanzhou Dies after Incarceration at Xiguoyuan Detention Center


Zhang Fengyun, female, was arrested while clarifying the truth about Falun Gong. She was unlawfully detained in the No. 14 Team of Xiguoyuan Detention Center in Lanzhou City for several months. She was very resolute about Dafa in the detention center and continually expressed to other practitioners her determination to prefer death over surrendering to the evil. In order to protest the illegal detention and ask for an unconditional release of all persecuted Falun Dafa practitioners, she started a hunger strike on July 28. During her hunger strike, policemen fiercely beat her. She was force-fed through a pipe inserted into her stomach on the 12th day of the hunger strike. According to other Falun Gong practitioners who saw Ms. Zhang for the last time on August 8, she was already very weak and on her last breath. On August 10, 2001, Zhang Fengyun' family received notification of her death from the police.
