Ms. Liu Qianqian

( Falun Dafa practitioner Ms. Liu Qianqian was 33 years old. She was arrested in 2002 and secretly sentenced to three years in prison. She had been locked up in the Heilongjiang Province Women's Prison, and was forced to go through brainwashing sessions and do heavy labor all day long. On June 19, 2005, Ms. Liu Qianqian was released home, but was as thin as a skeleton. Her veins could be clearly seen popping out, and her esophagus and stomach were festering due to infections. She died on August 6, 2005. (See

Ms. Liu Qianqian (used name Liu of Dongmei) lived in Shangzhi Town, Shangzhi City, Heilongjiang Province. She started practicing Falun Gong in 1996. After July 20, 1999, Jiang Zemin's regime started persecuting Falun Gong. In order to speak out for Falun Dafa, she went to Beijing to appeal and was arrested. She was detained three times in the Shangzhi City Detention Center. Ms. Liu was brutally beaten during periods of detention. The City Police Department's Political and Security Office Head Yu Jinfang (male) shouted, "I will for sure make your family go bankrupt from fines!"

Later, Ms. Liu was sentenced to one year of forced labor and tortured in Wanjia Labor Camp in Harbin City. She went through cruel brainwashing and had her hair pulled out by prison guards due to refusing to accept the brainwashing. She was handcuffed for more than twenty days, and was hung up by rope tied around her wrists all day. She grew scabs all over her body and could not sleep since it was very itchy. She was skin and bones when she was released one year later.

During 2002, after Ms. Liu Qianqian was released, she was arrested again in May because she was found passing out truth clarifying materials. She was then detained for 9 months in Shangzhi City First and Second Detention Centers. She was soon sentenced to three years in the Heilongjiang Province Women Prison in Harbin City. The lawless officials did not allow her family to visit her during these three years. Prison guards beat and cursed practitioners at will, stripped off practitioners' clothes in the freezing winter when the temperature was as low as 4oF below zero, and forced practitioners stay out in the snow for 7 days.

Due to being detained in the dark and humid cells, Ms. Liu Qianqian contracted tuberculosis and was sent to the sick prisoners' cell. No one knows what kind of drugs they injected her with, but it made her leg turn purple, and she could no longer walk. It was reported that Ms. Liu accepted the brainwashing "under no pressure."

Prison guards used five prisoners to watch each Falun Dafa practitioner, and had those prisoners "help and educate" the practitioners. The "education" was consisted of beatings. Practitioners could only eat one small piece of corn bread and a small bowl of vegetable soup per day. They are not able to feel full, but must do heavy labor every day. Falun Dafa practitioner Ms. Liao Xiaolu refused to do heavy labor, and was cursed and brutally beaten by prison guards.

On May 1, 2005, Ms. Liu Qianqian's family heard that she was very sick and requested to see her. They went through numerous difficulties and finally saw that she was as thin as a skeleton. Her family strongly requested to have her bailed out on medical parole, but was refused. Her parents picked her up on June 19, 2005, when her term ended. She used to weigh 135 pounds, but only had 55 pounds left at that point. Her family sent her to the Heishan County Tuberculosis Hospital to get treatment. The doctors said that there wasn't any cure for her. Ms. Liu Qianqian died on August 6, 2005.
