Ms. Wang Yu'e, fifty-five years old, lived in Foyedong Village, Foyedong Township, Lingyuan City, Liaoning Province. Ms. Wang started to practice Falun Dafa in 1996. In 1999, the authorities detained her twice for her practice, sending her to the notorious Masanjia Forced Labor Camp where she was severely persecuted. In 2000, the authorities at Masanjia Labor Camp called Ms. Wang's family and told them to get ready for her funeral. The labor camp released Ms. Wang to her family, and she slowly recovered from a critical state of health caused by the police torturing, however, the local police still did not leave her alone and harassed her repeatedly. She died in August of 2004.
Ms. Chen Shaomin was from Zhangwu County of Liaoning Province. She started to practice Falun Gong in May of 1998. Before that, Ms. Chen suffered from many illnesses including high blood pressure and nephritis. After learning Falun Gong, she became a totally healthy person again and looked much younger. Since Jiang's regime launched the persecution of Falun Gong on July 20, 1999, she lost her right to practice. Moreover, the local police frequently harassed and intimidated her and her daughter, who was also a Falun Gong practitioner. The persecution caused her to suffer both mentally and physically. Ms. Chen fell ill due to the pressure and died on May 27, 2004, at the age of fifty-one.
Ms. Lei Yuhua from the Wangzhuangkuang of Xinglong Coal Mine in Hebei Province recovered from her illnesses after she learned Falun Gong. But on July 20, 1999, when Jiang's regime implemented the persecution campaign against Falun Gong, she lost her practice environment and began to suffer from lung cancer. As a result, Ms. Lei died on October 20, 2003, in her fifties.
Ms. Yang Hongying was a teacher at the Yiwan Elementary School in Anjiang, Hunan Province. Ms. Yang started to practice Falun Gong back in 1997, and recovered from her illnesses through practicing. After the persecution started, Ms. Yang was constantly under stress from intimidation and close surveillance by the authorities. Under this difficult situation she had a relapse of her old illnesses, and died in February of 2005.
Ms. Yi Qunlan, fifty years old, was an official at the Appeals Office in Hongjiang City, Hunan Province. The authorities closely monitored and shadowed her because she was a Falun Gong practitioner. In 2001, she was informed on, causing the authorities to intensify their persecutions against her. As a result, Ms. Yi had a relapse of her old illnesses and died in 2001.
Ms. Long Fengying, forty years old, was a worker at the Food Company of Hongjiang City, Hunan Province. Ms. Long began to practice Falun Dafa in 1997 and the diabetes she suffered from for many years miraculously disappeared. Since Jiang's regime launched its nationwide campaign to persecute Falun Gong practitioners, she became so frightened that she stopped practicing Falun Gong. Her illnesses recurred and she died in 2003.
Ms. Huang Ling, a former employee of the recycling station of Great Bridge, in Anjiang, Hunan Province, went to Beijing to appeal for Falun Gong. The authorities, including the 610 Office, imprisoned and persecuted her. Subsequently, her employer fired her and her husband also left her. These numerous atrocities led to her mental collapse, and in 2004 she died, a woman in her thirties, away from her home in a hotel.
Ms. Lei Xinrong was from Luoyang City, Henan Province. She, too, went to Beijing to appeal for Falun Gong. The authorities detained and imprisoned her, and sent her to brainwashing classes. Ms. Lei resisted the evil persecution and refused to be "transformed." As a result, she was sent back to the detention center. After she returned from the detention center, she continued to live under surveillance of the authorities. Due to the continuous persecution, Ms. Lei died in May of 2000 at the age of forty.
