Mr. Liu Yu, thirty years old, was a Falun Dafa practitioner from Baichengzi City, Jilin Province. In the middle of January 2002, while he was producing truth-clarifying materials in Harbin City, he, his mother, and his girlfriend were all illegally arrested. Mr. Liu was then illegally sentenced to seven years' imprisonment, and detained at Hulan Prison in Harbin City. During this period of detention, he was subjected to forceful brainwashing. As a result of continuous abuse, he suffered from serious pulmonary tuberculosis. Because he was denied medical treatment for his condition, Mr. Liu passed away on April 3, 2005 at Hulan Prison.
Liu Yu's mother and his girlfriend were allowed to go home so they could attend his funeral. His mother, Mrs. Zong Yanxue, was illegally sentenced to seven years' imprisonment. His girlfriend, Ms. Zhang Xuedan was illegally sentenced to three years' imprisonment. Both of them are detained in Heilongjiang Women's Prison. Mr. Liu's younger brother is also a Falun Dafa practitioner. He was also illegally arrested in Jilin Province, and has been sentenced to seven years' imprisonment.
Ms. Wang Guizhen, sixty-eight years old, lived in Changchun City, Jilin Province. She had gone to Beijing to validate Falun Dafa in 2000. As a result, she was illegally arrested and detained by the police. She was also harassed and subjected to brainwashing in the classes held by the Neighborhood Community Office. Before the Chinese Lunar New Year's Eve of 2000, Ms. Wang was entrapped by police and forced to attend a brainwashing session, where she was persecuted. In the summer of 2001, Ms. Wang was illegally sent to a detention center again and 4,000 yuan was extorted from her in fines. The unlawful officials frequently harassed her at home. Wang Guizhen was forced to become homeless and destitute for a long time, in order to avoid further persecution at home. As a result of severe physical and psychological persecution, she suffered a serious illness, and was bedridden for six months. Ms. Wang passed away during the Chinese Lunar New Year of 2005.
Ms. Zhao Shulan, fifty-six years old, lived in Zhalanyingzi Village, Sanbao Township, Beipiao City, Liaoning Province. Prior to practicing Falun Gong, she suffered from several diseases and tried many treatments, but could not be cured. In the spring of 1998, she started practicing Falun Gong. Several days after she started practicing, she regained her health and her body became relaxed. From that point on, Ms. Zhao cultivated in Falun Dafa. After the evil persecution of Falun Dafa began on July 20, 1999, the unlawful officials from the 610 Office repeatedly went to her home and harassed her. They even deceived her and sent her to a so-called "Brainwashing Center" and subjected her to forceful brainwashing there. None of these things could change her firm belief in Falun Dafa. In autumn of 2003, Ms. Zhao's daughter-in-law was influenced so much by the slanderous Chinese Communist Party (CCP) propaganda that she drove Ms. Zhao out by threatening her husband with divorce. Ms. Zhao, her daughter, and her husband who was in poor health, had to move out of their own three-bedroom home, which had been built by Ms. Zhao. Under such long-term pressure, Ms. Zhao suffered tremendous pain both physically and mentally. She was diagnosed with leukemia in the winter of 2004, and passed away on March 30, 2005.
Mrs. Zhang Shounian, ninety years old, lived with her daughter in Huludao City, Liaoning Province. She and her daughter all started practicing Falun Dafa in 1996. Soon, her body gradually returned to a vigorous, healthy and youthful state. She walked with lightness, not at all like a ninety-year-old woman who had her feet bound to make them smaller. Her heart was benevolent and she was so kind, like an innocent and pure child. Since Jiang Zemin and the CCP started persecuting Falun Dafa on July 20, 1999, she often said to her daughter, "We are cultivating in a righteous Fa." In 2000, her daughter peacefully appealed for justice for Falun Dafa in Beijing. As a result, she was illegally detained in the detention center of Huludao City for more than three months. During this detention, the police repeatedly searched Mrs. Zhang's home without a warrant, confiscated their family property, and extorted money from them in fines. All this caused Mrs. Zhang huge psychological pressure, and she quickly passed away. After Mrs. Zhang's death, her son-in-law went to the detention center to ask the police there to let his wife return home to see her mother for the last time and attend the funeral. His request was denied.
Mrs. Wang Shujuan, sixty years old, was a Falun Gong practitioner from Anchangxian Village, Nuanchitang Township, Nanpiao District, Huludao City, Liaoning Province.

The police from Nuanchitang Police Substation frequently went to her home, harassed her, searched her home without a warrant, and confiscated her property, causing tremendous physical and psychological torment.

At the beginning of 2001, Wang Shujuan was illegally sent to a forced labor camp. Six months later, while she was being persecuted in Masanjia Forced Labor Camp, Mrs. Wang displayed the symptoms of cerebral thrombosis, and was released.

After the evil CCP started the persecution in 1999, Mrs. Liu and her daughter-in-law went to Shenyang and then Beijing to peacefully appeal for Falun Dafa. As a result, they were forcibly sent back to their hometown and further persecuted there. Mrs. Liu peacefully appealed for Falun Dafa in Beijing again in December 1999. She was illegally detained in Nanpiao District Detention Center, and was released on bail five days later.

Through cultivation and practicing the Falun Gong exercises, all her previous diseases disappeared and she became energetic. However, because of the persecution against Falun Gong, Mrs. Su no longer had a good cultivation environment. Because she could only recognize a few words, she could not study the Fa by herself and she could not practice the exercises normally. Her illness relapsed, and she passed away in the winter of 2004.
