(Clearwisdom.net) Mr. Li Changru was 52 years old, and lived in Baotun Village, Taihe Town, Heishan County, Jinzhou City, Liaoning Province. He started practicing Falun Dafa in 1997 because he was suffering from many illnesses. He gradually recovered from all his illnesses after practicing Falun Dafa. After July 20, 1999, Jiang and his regime started persecuting Falun Gong. Li Changru went to Beijing in October 1999 to appeal for Falun Dafa, and was arrested. He was retuned to his home district and held at the Heishan County Detention Center. One month later, he was transferred to the Taihe Town Police Substation to begin brainwashing, where he was threatened, and then released on bail after his family was extorted of approximately 7,000 yuan. After returning home, the village administration often came to his home to harass, threaten, question, ransack, or simply monitor him. Mr. Li Changru was deeply traumatized, both mentally and physically, over the past several years of the persecution. He died on January 27, 2005.

Falun Dafa practitioner Ms. Zhao Xingci, 62 years old, was a gynecologist employed by the Laohutai Mine Hospital, Fushun City, Liaoning Province. She went to Beijing twice to appeal for Falun Dafa in 2000, was arrested by police in Beijing, and sent back to her hometown. Ms. Zhao was sentenced to forced labor at the Wujiapu Labor Camp. She walked out of the labor camp with righteous thoughts, but had to become destitute and homeless in order to avoid being illegally arrested at home. As a result of the relentless persecution, Zhao Xingci lived a very hard life. She died after her old illnesses returned.
