1. Ms. Li Xiuxue from Jilin Province passed away in 1999
65-year-old Ms. Li Xiuxue died in October 1999. She had attended Teacher's lectures. For many years, she was very active in studying, spreading the Fa and teaching others about Falun Gong. After the persecution started in 1999, Ms. Li was illegally arrested three times while on her way to Beijing and Changchun. She lived by herself. The perpetrators harassed her day and night, either by calling her or coming to her house. They also ransacked her house and confiscated Falun Gong related materials.
Ms. Li could not handle the huge pressure. She succumbed and signed a guarantee statement against her will. Afterwards, she continued practicing, and greatly regretted having signed the statement. She was in the state of eliminating karma for a long while. The perpetrators' threats and the persecution were too great for her. Ms. Li died in October 1999, just a few months after the persecution started. After she passed away, other practitioners found that she kept all of the Falun Gong related books and photos in a heavy box, in perfect condition. It is really difficult to imagine how an elderly and weak woman could have managed to move the box filled with materials to a secret and safe place in order to avoid the persecutors' searches. Other practitioners then kept these materials, but sadly, the police found out about them and took them away. At the same time, we want to declare on Ms. Li's behalf that all of her signatures on any slanderous documents were done under duress and against her will and are therefore void.

Ms. He Fengqing was from Huamei Village, Dafeng Town, Xindu District of Chengdu City.

After July 20, 1999, when the persecution of Falun Gong started, Ms. He went to Beijing to appeal to the government for the right to practice Falun Gong. In July 2000, she held a peaceful appeal on Tiananmen Square in Beijing. She was later arrested and escorted back to her hometown. She was detained in the Chengdu City Detention Center and suffered there from persecution.
When Ms. He was released, the Chengdu City 610 Office put her under constant monitoring and surveillance. They repeatedly harassed her and finally forced her to attend a brainwashing session. Due to the prolonged persecution, Ms. He passed away in July 2003 at the age of 63.
