Ms. Yu Zhifang, a Falun Gong practitioner from Hubei Province, passes away.

Ms. Yu Zhifang, a 54-year old, practitioner from Yingcheng City, Hubei Province, began to practice Falun Dafa in 1997. On the evening of June 11, 2007, she was brutally abducted by police from Huangtan Police Station of Yingcheng City while she was distributing truth-clarification materials. She was sent to Yingcheng City Police Station on the the same night. The police from the National Security Team interrogated her and planned to detain her for further persecution. In order to escape from the persecution, Ms. Yu jumped from a balcony on the 2nd floor of the police station and could not move after she fell to the ground. A policeman from the National Security Team found her. He did not try to help her, but instead violently kicked her twice and then several police dragged her to the basement of the police station. Around 9 a.m. the next morning, Ms. Yu was sent to the hospital for some x-rays. The x-rays showed her back and legs had serious fractures. After that, police sent her back to the basement of the police station and continued to detain her. In the afternoon, the police sent her to Yingcheng People's Hospital and tied her arms and legs onto the iron bed and forcefully injected her with some unknown drugs. After the injection, several policemen discussed a plan to send her to the Department of Infectious Diseases. At that time, Ms. Yu's son arrived. When the police saw her son, one of them said, "I am here taking care of your mother. I have no responsibility for her injuries." Then the rest of the police left. Ms. Yu was then sent to a general ward.

Ms. Yu's physical condition became worse and her whole body ached. She could not stand by herself and had difficulty walking. After the police gave her some unknown injection, purple, black and reddish spots appeared around her injuries. She sometimes fell unconscious. She suffered back and leg pains for a long time. Ms. Yu passed away on December 15, 2009.

Ms. Li Ying, a Falun Dafa practitioner from Jilin Province passed away.

Ms. Li Ying, 42-years old, was a Falun Gong practitioner from Jilin City. She obtained the Fa in 1996. She benefited a lot after practicing Falun Gong. Her stubborn psoriasis was gone after she began her practice. In July 1999, the CCP began to persecute Falun Gong. She was sent to a detention center because she was wearing a shirt printed with the words "Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance." In April 2002, she was sentenced to a 2-year term in a forced labor camp. In Heizuizi Women's Forced Labor Camp in Changchun, she suffered all kinds of tortures such as being shocked with electronic batons, slapped on her face, deprived of sleep, etc. Her blood pressure dropped to only 30 mmHg. In such poor physical condition, she was forced to work 12 hours a day.

When her term expired, Heizuizi Forced Labor Camp would not release her. Ms. Li Ying began to protest with a hunger strike and would not accept forced feeding. The police then gave her some injections (she had no reaction at that time). Twenty four days later, she was released. She had become a bag of bones. Two weeks later, she could not eat anything. She would vomit after eating and her whole body hurt. She kept having pain in her lower abdominal area. On November 18, 2009, she passed away at her home.
