A woman in Liupanshui City, Guizhou Province, passed away on February 8, 2021, after being force-fed an unknown drug in a detention center. She was 64.

Ms. Zhu Renfen, who was reported for talking to people about Falun Gong, a mind-body discipline that has been persecuted by the Chinese communist regime since 1999, was arrested on February 13, 2019.

Although she was released that day, she was arrested again on May 31, 2020, also after being reported for talking to people about the persecution six days before. The police ransacked her home, confiscating her Falun Gong book, photo of Falun Gong’s founder, and two audio players.

At the Liupanshui City No.2 Detention Center, the guards ordered Ms. Zhu to take pills that they claimed were “blood pressure medication” (it’s unclear if she had high blood pressure). She refused to comply. The guards then held her down and force-fed them to her.

Ms. Zhu’s health quickly deteriorated afterward. Doctors at three different hospitals all said her condition was incurable. She was released on bail in late July 202o and died on February 8, 2021.
