(Clearwisdom.net) Practitioner Ms. Kang Shurong lived in Liuzikou Village, Dongshigu Township, Ji County, Tianjin City. She went to Beijing to appeal in 2000, and was taken back by police from the Ji County Department and sentenced to 18 months of forced labor on December 25, 2000. In the Tianjin City Women's Forced Labor Camp (formerly called the Banqiao Women's Forced Labor Camp), drug-addict inmate Feng Yi (female) forced Ms. Kang to stand for a prolonged period of time when her blood pressure was at 250 mm. She was tortured until she was close to death, then bailed out for medical treatment. Local Police Station Director Cai Jingxiang (male) and officer Kuang Aimin (male) constantly harassed her after she returned home. She died around August 2002, at about 47 years of age.
Practitioner Ms. Chen Ke lived in Hexi District, Tianjin City. She had been arrested and sent to a forced labor camp multiple times.

Practitioner Ms. Xu Ruijun, age unknown, is a retired employee of the Dagang Petroleum Field. She had uterine cancer before cultivating Falun Dafa. She recovered her health after practicing Falun Gong. She was arrested in 2001 while passing out flyers to clarify the truth, and she was detained in the Fifth Ward of the Tianjin City Women's Prison. She was forced to accept the brainwashing, but soon afterward her health deteriorated, and before she was released in the later half of 2004 she became very weak. Because she was not allowed to study the Fa or do Falun Gong exercises while under persecution, she died soon after being being released.
Practitioner Ms. Zhang Lixian, 67, lived in Harbin City, Heilongjiang Province. Her illnesses were cured after she started cultivating Falun Dafa. Her daughter, however, was arrested when the persecution began in 1999, and police officers from the Datong Station (in Daowuai District) often harassed them, threatened them, and forced her family to leave home to avoid being arrested. Her previous illness returned, causing her death on June 6, 2007.

She was arrested in Beijing. The evil agents kept harassing her at home, causing her to live under huge mental pressure. She died in mid April 2003.
Practitioner Ms. Wang Ruzhi, 65, lived in the Development Zone of Dalian City, Liaoning Province. Her son and daughter-in-law are all Falun Dafa practitioners.
