Ms. Li Guangmei From Guangdong Province Died of Persecution

Between 2000 and 2003, Ms. Li Guangmei, from Guangdong Province, was taken to a brainwashing center twice. Since she persisted in her belief steadfastly, she was threatened many times. In the brainwashing center, her freedom was restricted. Even when she went to the restroom or took a shower, she was monitored. The CCP agents took turns trying to brainwash her and force her to give up Falun Gong. She was deprived of sleep for several days and nights in a row. Her family members were prohibited from seeing her. The agents also insulted and beat her. Severely devastated both mentally and physically, she died in November 2003, at the age of 37.

Mr. Jia Tiancai from Nanyang City, Henan Province Dies of Persecution

In recent years, Mr. Jia Tiancai, from Nanyang City, Henan Province, has been repeatedly harassed by the CCP's agents. His home was searched seven times by the local police. During the period of the Olympic Games in 2008, the CCP employed several thugs to monitor him. Due to the long-term persecution, he died on November 27, 2008, at the age of 67.

Mr. Jia's wife contracted paralysis which lasted for more than 10 years. When the paralysis was severe, she was bedridden and could not take care of himself. She began to practice Falun Gong in 1996. At first, Mr. Jia brought her to the practice site on a bicycle. She could not even stand by herself then. After a short time, she could walk to the site slowly. Later, she went to the site by riding her bicycle. Soon she was free of any disease. Moreover, she strictly followed the principles of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance. Witnessing her big change, Mr. Jia began to cultivate in Dafa starting in 1997. His hypertension, which had pestered him for many years, disappeared without a trace.

After the CCP began to persecute Falun Gong on July 20, 1999, Mr. Jia and his wife went to Beijing to appeal. As a result, they were dismissed from their workplaces. His wife was sentenced to three and a half years of imprisonment. In prison, she was often put into handcuffs and shackles.

Since that time, Mr. Jia was often harassed by the local police and CCP agents. To avoid the harassment, he did not dare to stay at his home most of the time. Also, he could not study the Fa and practice the exercises regularly. In 2004, he suffered two cerebral hemorrhages. He was hospitalized for more than two months and spent more than 100,000 yuan without recovering at all. After returning home, he practiced the exercises and studied the Fa with his wife. He soon recovered and could even do heavy labor. His former colleagues, neighbors and relatives all learned the greatness of Falun Gong.

During the period of the Olympic Games in 2008, the CCP agents dropped in to harass them again. Due to the long-term persecution, he suffered a massive brain hemorrhage and fell into a semi-conscious state for nearly three months. He died on November 27, 2008.
