(Clearwisdom.net) Ms. Yang Jizhi, 65, is a retired teacher from Handian Middle School. She went to Beijing to appeal for justice for Falun Gong. She was subsequently detained in the Shuangcheng City Detention Center, where guards forced her to kneel down while they whipped her. Ms. Yang was later transferred to the Yaziquan Detention Center for several months, and then taken back to the Shuangcheng City Detention Center. She was detained for a total of 11 months, and released in August 2000. Ever since then she has been forced to live away from home to avoid being arrested. In 2005, she was arrested and detained in Daqing City. Her daughter Ms. Zhang Tieyan, also a practitioner, was tortured to death. The death of her daughter severely affected Ms. Yang's mental and physical health. She became very thin, and died far away from home on June 12, 2006.

Ms. Jin Chunqing, 58, was a retired employee of the Shuangcheng City Shoe Factory. She was very fortunate to have joined Master Li's Falun Dafa class held in Harbin City in 1994. The cultivation of Falun Dafa benefited her both physically and spiritually. She went to Beijing to validate Falun Dafa twice, and both times she was illegally arrested, detained, and had money extorted from her. She was later detained in the Wanjia Forced Labor Camp, where guards injected an unknown substance in her. Ms. Jin nearly died in the camp due to being tortured. The camp authorities took her back home, and they deducted 2,000 yuan from her retirement salary. Upon her return home, local police and the neighborhood administration constantly came to her home to harass her. When the unknown substance injected into her took effect, Ms. Jin's mind became unclear, she would cry or laugh, could not speak clearly, and her limbs were uncoordinated. She became emaciated, and died on April 8, 2006.
