Falun Gong Practitioners Persecuted to Death in Zhaoqing City, Guangdong Province

(Clearwisdom.net) The following is information about Falun Gong practitioners from Zhaoqing City, Guangdong Province, who have been persecuted to death by Chinese Communist Party (CCP) officials.

Ms. Li Hongfang began practicing Falun Gong in 1997 when she was in her 60s. In 2000, she went to Beijing to appeal for the right to practice Falun Gong. She was arrested and detained in the Liaison Office of Zhaoqing City in Beijing. Later, the 610 Office ordered her transfer to a detention center in Zhaoqing City. On two separate occasions CCP officials extorted money from Ms. Li in amounts totaling 10,000 yuan. For years after this, Ms. Li and her family were regularly harassed and threatened by officers from the 610 Office. This harassment continued until 2004 when Ms. Li died as a result of the relentless persecution.

Ms. Deng Yuehua started to practice Falun Gong in 1996 when she was in her 60s. Before that her health was very poor. She had severe heart disease, chronic bleeding from her uterus, her whole body was also swollen and the color of her face was yellow and pale. After she started practicing Falun Gong, she fully recovered from all of her illnesses. After July 20, 1999, when the CCP began persecuting practitioners of Falun Gong, the Domestic Security Division of Duanzhou District arrested her and sent her to a detention center because her husband went to Beijing to appeal for the right to practice Falun Gong. For two weeks she was subjected to a brainwashing program. In 2003, because they had not given up their belief in Falun Dafa, Ms. Deng and her husband were again arrested and jailed. The police prevented their son from going to work and forced him to monitor his parents in the brainwashing center. From that time on, until her death on March 7, 2006, Ms. Deng was kept under surveillance and frequently harassed.

Mr. Jiang Weijian, Ms. Deng Yueha's husband, began to practice Falun Dafa in 1996, when he was in his 70s, after witnessing the miracles that his wife experienced after taking up the practice. He also benefited both physically and spiritually. In 1990, after going to Beijing to appeal for the right to practice Falun Gong, he returned home to find that officers from the CCP were seeking to arrest him, but his colleagues at work protected him, so the police were unsuccessful. But after this, Mr. Jiang remained under surveillance and his telephone was tapped. In 2003, he was arrested and sent to a brainwashing center where he was forced to write a guarantee statement renouncing Falun Gong. As a result of the repeated abuse, Mr. Jiang's health deteriorated and he passed away in 2007.

Ms. Li Huiqun began practicing Falun Gong when she was in her 60s. Before learning Falun Dafa, she had uremia, a toxic condition resulting from kidney disease. In 1996, after she began cultivating Falun Dafa, she regained good health. After the persecution of Falun Dafa began in 1999, her employer threatened and harassed her, demanding that she give up her Falun Dafa books. Due to the persecution, her health problems returned and she died in 2007.

Mr. Zheng Jianchao began to practice Falun Gong in 1996 when he had tuberculosis and diabetes. Soon after he began cultivating Falun Dafa, however, he regained his health. After the persecution of Falun Dafa began in 1999, he was often threatened by his employers because he practiced Falun Gong. In December 2009, Mr. Zheng passed away at the age of 76.

Before she began cultivating Falun Dafa, Ms. Huang Chaomei, though only in her 40s, had heart disease, very severe rheumatoid arthritis and chronic inflammation of the nasal passages. All of these diseases disappeared after she began practicing Falun Gong. When she went to Beijing to appeal for the right to practice Falun Gong, she was arrested and held in the Zhaoqing City Detention Center. While in the detention center, she was forced to write a guarantee statement saying that she would give up practicing Falun Gong. In 2003 she was arrested again and sent to a brainwashing center. As a result of the abuse she suffered over the years, she fell ill again and passed away in November 2004.

Mr. Zhang Yumin learned Falun Gong in 1997. Before that he had chronic inflammation of the kidneys, sinusitis and many other diseases. After he began practicing Falun Gong, these diseases disappeared and his body experienced a lightness that he never felt before. His life, including work, was full of joy. In 1999, because Mr. Zhang's wife went to Beijing to appeal for the right to practice Falun Gong, officials from the CCP ransacked and confiscated their apartment. Because the officers found Dafa books in the apartment, Mr. Zhang was arrested and sentenced to a forced labor camp for three years. Mr. Zhang suffered a heavy financial loss because his store was forced to close. His child was also forbidden to go to school and life became extremely difficult for Mr. Zhang's entire family. After he was released from the forced labor camp, Mr. Zhang remained under surveillance for a very long time causing his family a great deal of anxiety. Not long after being detained, Mr. Zhang began to have severe illness symptoms that continued to worsen even after his release. Mr. Zhang passed away on July 2, 2007, at the age of only 41.

Ms. Chen Zhuqun began to practice Falun Gong in 1997. The practice was beneficial to her and she regained good health. Her family was very happy as well during this time. In 2000, she went to Beijing to appeal for the right to practice Falun Gong. Because of this, her apartment was ransacked and confiscated. She was arrested and taken to a detention center. The Domestic Security Division of Duanzhou District also illegally fined her 7000 yuan. In June, 2000, Ms. Chen went to Beijing a second time, was arrested again, and sentenced to one year in a forced labor camp. After her release, she continuously received harassing telephone calls. In 2003, Ms. Chen was arrested again and sent to the Duanzhou District Detention Center. Later, she was transferred to the Beiling brainwashing center in Zhaoqing City. Her family suffered severe psychological pressure which made her husband put pressure on her to give up her belief to avoid persecution. The continuous harassment and persecution took its toll and Ms. Chen passed away in January, 2001. She was only 52.
