Nine More Falun Dafa Practitioners in China Known to Have Died from Persecution
(Clearwisdom.net) Mr. Chen Xueda, 67, was a former chief engineer at Dalong Ore, Iron and Coal Group in Liaoning Province. He worked diligently and was burned out. He suffered from serious insomnia, which led to heart disease. In the summer of 1995, he was fortunate enough to obtain Dafa. He recovered after several months and returned to his post. After Jiang Zemin's regime began to persecute Falun Dafa on July 20, 1999, and because Mr. Chen spoke frankly, submitted a written statement, and went to Beijing to appeal, he was arrested and illegally detained for one month. Because he did not give up the practice, the local 610 Office, the local police station, and his company frequently harassed him at home and forced him to write a repentance statement. This led him to have a recurrence of his old illness. He passed away on the evening of January 23, 2004.
Ms. Wang Xiuqing, 57, was a retired worker living at Tanji Dormitory, West Xiqiao District, Zhangjiakou City, Hebei Province. Before she cultivated and practiced Dafa, she had many diseases, and was frequently hospitalized. Soon after she began cultivating, she fully recovered from all of her ailments. In 2000, Ms. Wang practiced at the Railroad Park and posted Dafa banners. She was arrested by the Gongrenxincun local police station in West Xiqiao District and Shenjiatun local police station twice, and was illegally detained and fined. Later, the Gongrenxincun local police station and the residents' committee often harassed her. Her body and mind were seriously harmed, and she suffered a relapse of her illnesses. She died around New Year's Day, 2005.
Ms. Sun Zhanling, 25, was a villager from Nanqiao Village, Zetou Town, Wendeng City, Shandong Province. When she was 16 years old, she contracted epilepsy and encephalitis. Her family sought every sort of medical help, all to no avail. In 1997, she obtained Dafa and started her cultivation. Her many years of incurable diseases disappeared without any further treatment. After Jiang's regime began to persecute Dafa on July 20, 1999, in order to say a few just words for Master and Dafa, Ms. Sun and her mother went to Beijing before the New Year of 2000 to appeal. When they arrived in Haiyang station, they were intercepted and arrested. Zeng Shaohe from the Zetou local police station returned them to their local police station in handcuffs and then illegally arrested them and confiscated their family's property. Only after her father borrowed 2,000 yuan were they released. After that, the local police station in Nanqiao Village went to their home during the daytime to forcibly ask them whether or not they practiced, and then kept watch on them in the evening. In 2001, both she and her mother were arrested by the Zetou local police station again and forced to write a guarantee statement. All kinds of methods were used to threaten and harass them. Ms. Sun Zhanling had a recurrence of her old illness and passed away on May 5, 2001.
Ms. Zhang Ruhua, who was over 60 years old, was a retired teacher from Xinji City, Hebei Province. She became very healthy after practicing Dafa. However, since the start of the persecution of Falun Dafa on April 25, 1999, she was harassed and threatened many times. She died in 2002.
Ms. Wang Rongtan, who was over 60 years old, was a Dafa practitioner in Xinji City, Hebei Province. When the persecution of Falun Dafa began on July 20, 1999, she went to Beijing to appeal. On the way, the local police took away all of her money. Later, she was repeatedly threatened to the point where her body and mind suffered enormous harm. She died suddenly in the summer of 2004.
Mr. Ma Zaoling was over 70 years old, and was a Dafa practitioner in Xinji City, Hebei Province. After practicing Dafa, he became healthy in both body and mind. After the persecution began on July 20, 1999, he was threatened and harassed many times. Because his daughter insisted on practicing Falun Dafa, she was dismissed by her company. He was illegally detained and imprisoned on numerous occasions. His body and mind were severely harmed, and he died in February 2003.
Ms. Bian Bingyue was over 60 years old. She was a Dafa practitioner in Xinji City, Hebei Province. After practicing Dafa, she became healthy and her many years of diseases disappeared. However, after the persecution of Dafa began in 1999, she was threatened and arrested many times. She died in 2003.
Mr. Zhou Qichang, 73, was a staff member of the Wuchuan Mercury Mine in Guizhou Province. He lived in his daughter's home. At one time he was diagnosed with throat cancer, bronchitis, and other ailments. After practicing Dafa, he fully recovered from these diseases. Additionally, the sarcoma that was on his instep for several decades disappeared without a trace. His bald head even grew hair again. In July 1999, Mr. Zhou, his wife, daughter, son-in-law, and grandson went to the provincial government to appeal on behalf of Falun Gong and were arrested. After he returned home, the leaders in his daughter's company and the public security bureau visited them frequently to threaten, intimidate, and monitor them. This precipitated an attack of cerebral thrombosis. He left the world on December 19, 2000.
Mr. Xue Fengqi, 72, lived on Zhengyang Street, Yushu City, Jilin Province. In October 2001, he went to Beijing to validate Dafa and was arrested.

After coming back, he was hounded constantly. While under tremendous pressure, Mr. Xue died from bladder cancer some time shortly before October 1, 2004.
