(Clearwisdom.net) Falun Dafa practitioner Ms. Niu Guilan is from Changle County, Shandong Province. She was illegally detained over ten times and persecuted because she believes in Falun Gong. The severe persecution caused her health to deteriorate. Ms. Niu passed away on July 18, 2005.
Ms. Niu Guilan was an employee at the Auto Town Hospital of Changle County, Shandong Province. She learned Falun Dafa in 1997. Before she started practicing, Ms. Niu had diabetes, high blood pressure, and other physical problems. After she practiced Falun Gong for several months, all her diseases disappeared. She became very healthy and saved the country and her work unit from incurring huge expenses for her medical treatments. After she started practicing Falun Gong, Ms. Niu Guilan strictly followed the principles of Truthfulness, Compassion, Forbearance. She was greatly admired by her co-workers in her work unit. Since the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) started to persecute Falun Gong on July 20, 1999, former Auto Town Party Committee Secretary Yu Limin, current Secretary Gao Lide, as well as leaders in the hospital brutally persecuted Ms. Niu Guilan and another Falun Dafa practitioner.
From July 20, 1999 to the end of 2001, Ms. Niu Guilan was illegally detained over ten times.
The following is a summary of the persecution she suffered:
Under the high pressure and brutal persecution implemented by the CCP, Ms. Niu Guilan was forced to give up practicing Falun Dafa. Her health regressed to its former state and her illnesses returned. Specifically, after 2002 she often went into shock and was not very clear-minded. Her health continued to deteriorate. With the help of fellow Dafa practitioners, Ms. Niu resumed the practice in 2004 but was again forced by the CCP in April 2005 to quit. At the same time, she published her Solemn Declaration and declared that all her words and actions that did not comply to the standard of Falun Dafa were invalid. Due to the CCP's longstanding policy of terror, Ms. Niu's children were very frightened by the persecution. They tried to stop their mother from practicing Falun Gong and sent her to the Changle County Traditional Chinese Medicine Hospital many times. Eventually, Ms. Niu Guilan passed away on July 18, 2005.
