Ms. Tang Xingyun, 65, Tortured to Death by 10 Policemen in Shenyang City, Liaoning Province

July 14, 2007 |  

(Clearwisdom.net) At eight o'clock in the evening, March 10, 2007, policemen from Shashan Police Station abducted Tang Xingyun, a Falun Dafa practitioner from Heping District, Shenyang City, Liaoning Province. Someone had tipped the police that Tang had been seen distributing truth-clarification materials in the area. She had only handed out two copies. Ten thuggish policemen shocked her with eight electric batons, and the 65-year-old lady died in the police station before she could utter a word.

Further details are under investigation and anyone who knows about the case is encouraged to provide us with more information.

Tang Xingyun was a 65-year-old lady, who used to live in a neighborhood on Tuanjie Road, Shenhe District. The neighborhood was later sold by the city government of Shenyang to foreign businessmen, so in 2002 Tang moved to Shayang Neighborhood, Shayang Road, Heping District, Shenyang City. Before she obtained the Fa, Tang had many diseases, including high blood pressure and cardiovascular disorders, and had lived in agony for years. She happily obtained the Fa in 1996 and started studying the Fa and cultivating her heart. She strictly observed the standard of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance, and not long after she started practicing Falun Gong, all her diseases simply vanished. She truly felt the happiness of having a body free of diseases. She became a warm, open, and kind person, and she told everyone she ran into about the goodness of Dafa. Many of the people she had talked to came to know more about Dafa and even started on the path of cultivating in Dafa.

Tang studied the Fa and did her exercises with her heart. Each time it was her turn to read the book in a group Fa-study, she would do it slowly. Once, a fellow practitioner said, "It would be better if you could read faster." Tang replied matter-of-factly, "Why the rush? Each and every word in the book is Master's image, and I want to see all of them." Tang never forgot to promote Dafa in doing anything. In 1998, she was chosen to be a dancer in a folk dance team organized by district authorities of Shenhe. She worked hard in the heat of summer and the cold of winter, and did well in performing the folk dances popular in northeastern China. Meanwhile, she lost no time to spread and promote Dafa, helping many people obtain the Fa. At the time, a leader praised her at a meeting, "Falun Gong practitioner Tang Xingyun did the best, and we should all learn from her."

After the persecution began on July 20, 1999, Tang had not forgotten for one moment Dafa disciples' historic mission. In the midst of tribulations she kept promoting and validating Dafa. Not long after the persecution started, she was picked up by local police, and asked to identify Falun Gong practitioners from a list. Instead of telling them who were Falun Gong practitioners, Tang, a big smile on her face, explained to the police what changes she had gone through after she started cultivating Falun Dafa and doing everything according to the principle of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance. She also told them the truth about the persecution of Falun Dafa. She got excited and held the hands of a policeman, saying to him, "Young man, Falun Dafa is really good. Don't round up people at will." The policeman said, "All right, all right. You may go home now." She was thus released.

In her efforts to clarify the facts, Tang not only explained the truth and handed out truth-clarification materials face-to-face, but also she used her meager pension to make truth-clarification materials. Once she heard that a truth-clarification materials production center was short of funds, so she didn't hesitate to contribute from her savings. Tang was fearless in helping the kidnapped practitioners. In 2001, when a illegally abducted practitioner escaped from the authorities, Tang, in spite of the police surveillance, went to visit this practitioner and encouraged him to walk well the remaining journey of cultivation in accordance with Dafa.

Now Tang has been brutally murdered, but her family and relatives do not dare to speak up, for they have long been poisoned by Party culture and they are fearful of the wicked party. It is not clear how exactly Tang died, and we hope her family and kind-hearted people will help us find out the truth and provide evidence for the investigation of the murder of Falun Dafa practitioner Tang Xingyun.
