Six Older Practitioners Who Died as a Result of Persecution

October 11, 2005 |  

(Clearwisdom.net) Ms. Miao Chuanyuan, 78, was a resident of Zhonghe Town, Yuechi County, Sichuan Province. Before she obtained the Fa in 1996, Ms. Miao was half paralyzed and even had difficulty walking, so she had to use a crutch. After starting cultivation, she was restored to health. After the persecution started on July 20th, 1999, police often came to harass her family and interrogate her on the source of Dafa material. On March 16, 2004, county 610 Office agents ransacked her home and arrested her son. Some policemen threw her son into the vehicle, and Ms. Miao collapsed from anxiety. She became ill after that. Her son was sentenced to one year in prison, and Ms. Miao died as a result of both mental and physical persecution on July 16, 2005.

Ms. Zhang Jin'er, 73, was a resident of Dongxin Town, Yecheng City, Hebei Province. Her health improved greatly after obtaining the Fa in 1998. She didn't yield under the persecution by the CCP, and went to distribute flyers in the city. Later she was reported when she practiced on the street and was arrested. After that, she was frequently harassed and passed away in February 2003.

Mr. Liu Yuting, 67, was a Dafa practitioner in The Second Hand Goods Exchange Center in Shahe, Hebei Province. He was arrested in 2001 when he went to appeal in Beijing but was released by a kind police driver. On February 12, 2001, he was illegally arrested by the local authorities and sent to a detention center. In the detention center, he was punished by being forced to stand against the wall and given very bad food. With so many inmates in the jail, he had to sleep on the floor. His diabetes relapsed because of the bad conditions in the jail. The jail had to release him but they did that only after extorting 5,000 yuan from his family. After he came out, Mr. Liu learned that his pension card had been taken away by his former workplace and his daughter had been sent to a labor camp. He lost his only remaining source of support after his son left due to a misunderstanding. During this period, the authorities also went to his home to harass him. Under such tremendous pressure, the elderly practitioner died on March 30, 2002. (Note: Mr. Liu once wrote a statement to give up cultivation under pressure. Before he died, he did not have a chance to declare the statement he wrote as null and void. But he had come to realize his mistake and later firmly refused any requests made by the evil.)

Ms. Zhang Zhihua, 66, lived in Shenze County, Hebei Province. Before cultivation, she suffered from high blood pressure. Her health was restored after beginning to practice Dafa in April 1999. After the persecution started, she was forced to give up cultivation and became ill again. Later she also got heart disease and became very weak. She died on July 12, 2003.

Mr. Sun Zhonggui, 67, was a retired worker from Dongsheng Forest Farm, Fusong County, Jilin Province. He once suffered from TB and other illnesses and was not able to take care of himself. After cultivation, his health improved greatly and he became able to work. Because his son went to appeal in Beijing, his family was often harassed and threatened. Under the extreme pressure, his old illness returned, and he passed away on July 26, 2001.

Mr. Lou Guangde, 70, was a retired worker from the Anyang Post Office, Henan Province. He was arrested at home in 2000 and detained illegally for a long time. Under a series of persecutions, he died in 2004.
