Mr. Su Guohua Dies from Effects of Persecution in 2003 in Zhuozhou City, Hebei Province
(Clearwisdom.net) Mr. Su Guohua, 73, lived in Liujiayuan Village, Yihezhuang Township, Zhuozhou City, Hebei Province. The Metropolitan Public Security Bureau's First Division, which is the 610 Office, and the local Judicial Department arrested him many times. The authorities once handcuffed Mr. Su to a big tree and then shocked him with electric batons. Because of the torture, the long-term persecution and the constant harassment, Mr. Su left this world in December 2003.
Before practicing Falun Gong, Mr. Su had had many illnesses, such as high blood pressure, coronary disease, diabetes, tracheitis, asthma, gastritis, and arthritis. He needed to go to the hospital all the time and thought that he would need to take medication for the rest of his life. None of his illnesses could be cured, and he had to walk using crutches. He was seriously ill for so long that he had given up hope.
In the fall of 1995, Mr. Su began practicing Falun Dafa. After practicing for half a year, he experienced major improvement in both mind and body. All of his illnesses miraculously disappeared. He no longer needed crutches and could even ride a bicycle. He rode it to neighboring villages to promote Dafa. Mr. Su became energetic again and could even help his son by doing some farm work.
Between 1997 and 1999, Mr. Su promoted Dafa in Zhuozhou City. He also did a lot of the preparation in organizing experience-sharing conferences. His hard work enabled many people to obtain Dafa. The supply of Dafa books and videos never met the demand, so Mr. Su rode his bike to Beijing to purchase these Dafa material. He always went and returned on the same day despite being elderly and despite the bad weather. When Mr. Su returned in the evening, he would deliver Dafa books and videos to new practitioners' homes. He always recited Lunyu when riding his bike. When others asked if he ever felt tired, he always answered, "Dafa saved my life. Master gave me the chance to devote myself to Dafa. A little tiredness is nothing. To die for it is worthy." Mr. Su quietly promoted Dafa every day for years.
In July of 1999, the Chinese Communist regime launched its persecution of Falun Gong. To validate the Fa, Mr. Su went to appeal and clarify the facts in Beijing. The 610 officials arrested Mr. Su many times. They beat and cursed him, handcuffed him to a big tree, used electric batons to shock him, extorted money from him, and fined him. Mr. Su always refused to sign any repentance statement, so the authorities constantly harassed him. The vicious torture and persecution took Mr. Su's life in December 2003.
