(Clearwisdom.net) Ms. Bai Wanxiu, a sixty-year-old Falun Dafa practitioner and retired City Food Supply Bureau employee from Fukang City, Jizhou, Xinjiang Uighur Autonomous Region, went to Beijing many times to appeal. She was subjected to persecution and extortion by Mu Hengwang, Zhang Junhua, Feng Jun and others from the City Food Supply Bureau and police officers from the local police station. On September 17, 2004, she passed away as a result of the persecution she suffered.
Married couple Mr. Bai Yinshang and Mrs. Li Qingfang were Falun Dafa practitioners in their seventies from Xibayun Village, Jiuyunjie Town, Fukang City, Jizhou, Xinjiang Uighur Autonomous Region. They and most of their children practice Falun Dafa, and their children went to Beijing many times to appeal. Officials from the city's 610 Office, the police station and the town government singled them out for persecution. Authorities coerced them into allowing them to search their home many times, and harassed and persecuted them regularly. Having suffered these threats and harassment, the couple fell sick and didn't recover. Li Qingfang passed away in September 2001 and Bai Yinshan in October 2002.
Mr. Li Zhenlu, a Falun Dafa practitioner from Sandaogou Village, Cuijiayu Unit, Xinchengzi Town, Miyun County, Beijing, was detained and imprisoned in a labor camp for two years after he validated Dafa in July 1999. After his release, local police and 610 Office officials went to his home and harassed him many times, which caused him to suffer a relapse of an old illness. He passed away in May 2005.
Mr. Li Xingquan, 65, was a Falun Dafa practitioner from the Candy Manufacturing Factory in Yanjiang District, Ziyang City, Sichuan Province. His wife, Zhao Surong, was repeatedly persecuted because she validated Dafa and clarified the truth. She was released from the Zizhong Nanmu Temple Women's Labor Camp in 2002. On May 10, 2003, she was again sentenced to four years because she distributed truth-clarifying materials, and was severely persecuted at the Chunxi Prison for Women. She was incarcerated in solitary confinement for a long time, and her family members were not allowed to visit her. Mr. Li Xingquan persisted in cultivating Dafa and continued to clarify the truth, but because he bore such extreme psychological pressure for so long, he suffered from sudden apoplexy and passed away on June 16, 2005.
Ms. Liu Fengzhen, 65, from Xiaolianggou Village, Xian Town, Dawa County, Panjin City, Liaoning Province had suffered her whole life from multiple diseases, including diabetes, stroke, and tuberculosis of the lacteal gland. Her diabetes was so severe that she had to take medicine every day to control the symptoms. She started to practice Falun Gong with her family members in 1996. Her physical health was gradually restored and she recovered from the diabetes, and no longer needed medical treatment. She was energetic and also recovering from the sequelae of cerebral thrombosis. Because her husband Ning Bo persisted in Dafa cultivation, the head of Xian Police Station, Zhang Mingjiang, often went to their home with other police officers and harassed them, searched their home, and detained Ning Bo many times. Threatened by police and placed under great psychological pressure, Liu Fengzhen's diseases relapsed, and she passed away on September 23, 2003. Her husband was sentenced to a three-year term and imprisoned in the Jinzhou Jail after being arrested by policeman Zhang Mingjiang on May 19, 2004.
Ms. Zeng Fengji, 60, of Xinhe Village, Buyunqiao Town, Qidong County, Hunan Province previously suffered from asthma and heart disease. She gradually recovered from these diseases after she started practicing Falun Gong. After the persecution began on July 20, 1999, officials from the local 610 Office and the village government broke into her home and confiscated Master's picture. Because they prohibited her from practicing Falun Gong, Zeng Fengji passed away in 2000.
