Four Dafa Practitioners from Inner Mongolia, Shanxi, Heilongjiang and Sichuan Provinces Die as a Result of the Persecution
(Clearwisdom.net) Ms. Ma Yufen, 30, was a Dafa practitioner from Xilin Haote City, Inner Mongolia. In 2000, she went to Beijing to clarify the truth and validate the Fa on several occasions. Due to her family members' fear of the Communist Party's persecution, they maintained tight control over Ma Yufen's movements. Ms. Ma overcame these obstacles, but on the way to Beijing to clarify the truth, without a single yuan and wearing only thin clothes, she froze to death on the snowy plains in October 2000.
Mr. Peng Dong, 29, was a college graduate from Hantai District, Hanzhong City, Shanxi Province, and a worker in the local silk industry. Because he was a Falun Dafa practitioner, he was illegally sent to Zaozihe Forced Labor Camp for two and a half years, where he suffered from brutal tortures. In 2002, because he refused to submit to the evil's demands, Mr. Peng was sent to the isolation room and very heavily tortured. He was tied to the "dead person's bed" for many days. In 2003, after being released from the labor camp, he was sent to brainwashing classes. Under brutal torture, Mr. Peng compromised with the authorities. One night in June 2005, while he was sleeping, his breathing suddenly became abnormal, and he passed away several minutes later. His family members tried in vain to take him to the hospital for emergency rescue. Peng Dong had already solemnly declared that everything he wrote against Dafa and against his conscience under the pressure of the persecution is void.
Mr. Zhang Cangwen, 64, was a Dafa practitioner from Chengdu City, Sichuan Province, and was the former factory supervisor of a metal forging and stamping factory. After practicing Falun Gong, he recovered from many diseases. On May 13, 2005, more than 20 policemen from the Yangliu Village Police station under the Jinjiang Public Security Bureau Division of Chengdu City broke into his home and ransacked the place. Mr. Zhang's wife He Jianqing, daughter Zhang Weihua and son-in-law Zhou Jingdong were arrested. His daughter underwent a hunger strike for more than 20 days to protest the illegal arrests and she was on the brink of death before she was released on June 6 and sent home. However, three policemen were stationed at her home to monitor her. On June 7, Ms. Zhang was arrested again and sent to a brainwashing class where her mother was, and they both suffered persecution. Between June 7 and June 9, policemen from the Yangliu Village Police Station and the No. 1 Section of the Jinjiang District Police Bureau subjected Mr. Zhang Cangwen to barbarous interrogation methods and psychological threats. In order to further persecute his daughter, Zhang Weihua, Zhang Cangwen was ordered to bring food to her on June 9. However, before meeting his wife, he suffered a brain hemorrhage and passed away.
Ms. Tong Guizhen, 67, was a practitioner from Changxing Town, Boli County, Heilongjiang Province. She recovered from heart disease, among several other ailments after she began practicing Falun Gong in 1995. She gradually was able to do physical work. After the persecution of Falun Gong began on July 20, 1999, two policemen, Cong Yuming and Hu Haibo, from the Changxing Town Police station, constantly harassed Ms. Tong at home. They used walking sticks to hammer her door and windows violently at midnight, often waking her from sleep in this shocking manner. After being severely frightened several times in the middle of the night, Tong Guizhen's heart disease recurred and she passed away in 2002.
