(Clearwisdom.net) Li Qixi, Tang Ying, and Li Baoxia of Zhanjiang, Guangdong Province, were brutally persecuted for practicing Falun Dafa. They were forced to give up their belief, were tortured both mentally and physically, and finally passed away. In addition, Li Zhongjuan, an older woman in Xiashan District, Zhanjiang City, Guangdong Province, suffered harassment from the vicious people. Her son and daughter-in-law were also persecuted. She finally died because of the persecution.

Ms. Li Qixi, 58, was an accountant in the Refrigerating Plant of Zhanjiang City, Guangdong Province. She's benefited from the practice since attending Master's lecture in December 1994 in Guangzhou. Through continuous practice and study of Falun Dafa, all of her chronic and stubborn diseases were healed. She actively promoted Falun Dafa, started exercise sites, taught the exercises voluntarily and tirelessly, and has led more than 60 people to join the practice.

After July 20, 1999, when the persecution began, she didn't give up her belief and persisted in cultivating Falun Dafa, so she was harassed continuously. The "610 Office" monitored her for a long time. She was illegally detained for thirty days after she went to Beijing to appeal for Falun Dafa in December 2000, and she never had freedom after that. She was abducted by the "610 Office" in Zhanjiang for brainwashing in April 2001, and after she was forced to accept the brainwashing under the high pressure, her mental state was severely damaged. She lost her cultivation environment, and her old ailment returned. She finally passed away on August 24, 2001.

Ms. Tang Ying, 48, was a resident of Dongshan Town in Donghaidao, Zhanjiang City, Guangdong Province. She started practicing Falun Dafa in 1997 at a practice site in the city. Her physical body was purified, and her xinxing [mind-heart nature, moral character] improved rapidly. She went back to her hometown to promote the practice, started exercise sites there, and helped the predestined people in Donghaidao District to cultivate Falun Dafa.

On her way to Beijing to appeal in February 2000, the local "610 Office" abducted her and sent her to the detention center for persecution and torture. She was detained for a month before being released.

The local "610 Office" and police station then broke into her home several times in February 2001, and detained her in the Dongshan Police Station for further torture. She was deprived of sleep and was interrogated continuously. She was also tortured and interrogated, and forced to stand on her knees for an entire night. They sent her to the Zhanjiang Detention Center to continue persecuting her. In the wintertime, the vicious people poured cold water on her, and put her in heavy shackles.

After a month, she was transferred to a brainwashing class in Suixi County. She refused to write the statement accepting the brainwashing, and as a result, three months later she was sent to Sanshui Forced Labor Camp in Guangdong Province. She received even worse abuse in the forced labor camp, both physical and mental. She was ill after she wrote the "Three Statements" under high pressure. Then she was forced to go through surgery, which resulted in an infection at the surgery wound. She was released under medical parole when she was dying, and she passed away in June 2003.

Ms. Li Baoxia, 42, was a resident of Xiashan District, Zhanjiang City, Guangdong Province. She used to be weak and had lots of illnesses. After she started practicing Falun Dafa in 1995, she became healthy. She went to Beijing in December 1999 to appeal for her faith. After she came back, the police department and the local police station monitored and interrogated her continuously, and forced her to write the "Three Statements." She was severely tortured and damaged both mentally and physically, and died at the end of January 2000.

Ms. Li Zhongjuan, 63, was a resident of Xiashan District, Zhanjiang City, Guangdong Province. She started practicing Falun Dafa in 1994. Everyone in her family practiced Falun Gong. Her family was harmonious, healthy, and had a high moral standard. After July 20, 1999, to clarify the truth, Li Zhongjuan walked around and told people that Falun Dafa is good. She distributed the truth clarifying materials and pasted slogans. On the evening of October 13, 2000, more than a dozen ruffians and secret agents from the National Security Department broke into her home. They confiscated the Falun Dafa materials, and abducted her son and daughter-in-law. Her son was released after a month, and in a few days the policemen took him away again. Her daughter-in-law was sentenced to three and a half years in jail. Only the elderly woman and her two grand children were left at home. She could not bear the heavy blow and died on February 23, 2001.
