Ms. Yang Shuqing from Jilatu Town, Qianguo County, Songyuan City, Jilin Province passed away in 2002
Ms. Yang Shuqing was a 72 years old practitioner from Gahanzhabu Village, Jilatu Town, Qianguo County, Songyuan City. She began to practice Falun Gong in 1997 and benefited mentally and physically from this practice. In 1998, Yang went with some practitioners to promote Falun Dafa away from her hometown. After the persecution started in July 1999, the local police unlawfully ransacked her home many times. Yang's older son and younger daughter were sent to forced labor camps. Additionally her older daughter and her grandson were illegally detained numerous times. Yang's mind and body suffered greatly because of these injustices.
On the evening of December 29, 2001, Chief of Jilatu Town Police Station Li Mai and some guards broke into Yang Shuqing's home. They confiscated Falun Gong practice music audiotapes and abducted Yang's grandson Li Dongxu. Yang was shocked and distraught, and became bedridden in despair.
Three days after abducting Yang's grandson, Li Mai showed up at Yang's home with a detention warrant. Yang asked the police to release her grandson, "Because of you I have become distraught and bedridden." Li Mai replied, "If you had not practiced Falun Gong, I would not have come to your home."
Yang Shuqing died on April 8, 2002 (Chinese Lunar Calendar) as a result of the persecution. At the time of her death, her two daughters and one grandson were still held in detention, only because they persisted cultivating in Falun Dafa.
Practitioner Wang Yongan in Jilin City was tortured to death in 2002
Forty-nine year old practitioner Mr. Wang Yongan lived at No. 26-1-11 Paoziyan Street, Longtan District, Jilin City, Jilin Province. He was a quiet and shy gate guard at Jilin Chemical Industry Company Chemical Fertilizer Factory (No. 102 Factory). In 2002, his company "laid him off with compensation." We note that this was actually a forced retirement. They compensated him, based on how many years he had worked at the company. Employees who are laid off like this do not receive retirement benefits. The "laying off with compensation" is a method used by state owned companies to reduce their deficits.
Wang began his cultivation path in 1998, after which his high blood pressure and cerebral thrombus disappeared. After July 1999, those carrying out the persecution arrested him, unlawfully detained him, sent him to brainwashing centers, and unlawfully sentenced him to serve time at a forced labor camp.
On February 19, 2000, Wang Yongan was detained for 15 days in Paoziyan Detention Center (the detention center has been demolished) because he participated in a Falun Dafa experience sharing conference. After detaining him for 15 days, the executors of the persecution arrested him and sent him to a brainwashing session held by Jilin Chemical Industry Company. They detained him there for a month. Wang did not succumb to the persecution and persisted in his cultivation.
On October 15, 2000, Paoziyan Station Police officers (in Longtan District, Jilin City) unlawfully ransacked Wang Yongan's home and confiscated some of his personal belongings, including a computer. The executors of the persecution fabricated a newspaper story, stating that they had found 45 copies of truth-clarifying fliers. The truth is, they did not find anything in Wang's home. As a consequence of such lies, Wang was sent to Huanxiling Forced Labor Camp in Jilin Province in December 2000, where he was tortured cruelly.
In February 2001, Wang was diagnosed with high blood pressure, after which he was released for medical treatment. In June 2002, because of the inhuman persecution he suffered, he was diagnosed with lung cancer in its final stage. Wang spent 9 days in a hospital during which he was given emergency care before he passed away.
