Ms. Li Guilian, Ms. Zhang Guizhen and Ms. Sun Aihua from Liaoning and Shandong Provinces Die as a Result of Persecution
(Clearwisdom.net) Ms. Li Guilian is a Falun Gong practitioner from Jinzhou City, Liaoning Province. She started practicing Falun Dafa in 1996. After she began practicing, the diseases that troubled her for many years disappeared and she enjoyed good health. Her daughter also practiced Falun Gong. After the persecution began in 1999, the police fined her for being a Falun Gong practitioner, she had money extorted from her, and she was threatened. This caused her huge mental and physical harm. She passed away on September 18, 2000.
Ms. Zhang Guizhen, 72, was from Shaheliang of Liaoning Province. Before she began Falun Dafa practice in 1996, she suffered from diabetes and heart disease, and had been hospitalized many times. She was the first from her local area to learn Falun Dafa. Though she had received very little education, she was able to read the book "Zhuan Falun," and was very determined in her cultivation. Her health recovered. In 1999, because she introduced Falun Gong to other people, approximately eight policemen broke into her home and confiscated her Falun Gong books. Later, when she went to visit her relatives, two perpetrators followed her to her relative's home, and tried to force her to write a guarantee statement. She firmly refused. Prolonged persecution brought her great harm. Her diabetes came back and her eyesight began to fail. But the difficulties did not keep her from clarifying the truth. She still went outside to post flyers clarifying the truth of Falun Gong. Right before she passed away on September 5, 2004, she felt sorrow for not being able to do more for Falun Dafa.
Ms. Sun Aihua, 47, lived at No. 19 Mingchun Alley, Zhifu District, Yantan City, Shandong Province. She was the warehouse keeper at the Beilaixiang Food Factory. Before she practiced Falun Gong, she had breast cancer and lived in pain for many years. She began Falun Dafa practice in 1997, and has since benefited both mentally and physically. In early 2000, she went to Beijing to validate the Fa. For this she was detained in the Yantan City Detention Center for fifteen days. In the same year, while she was posting flyers of the truth of Falun Gong, officers from the Xinfu Police Station arrested her. After she held a hunger strike for four days, the police released her. Later, a person who was a former practitioner, but went astray due to brainwashing and torture, gave her information to the persecutors. Staff members from the 610 Office continually looked for her. Ms. Sun Aihua lived under threats and tension for a long time, which caused her a great deal of suffering, both mentally and physically. Her disease came back, and she passed away in December 2002.
