Case Description:

Tai Yurong, 36, was a resident of Nanjia Village, Jiacun Township, Wangdu County, Baoding City, Hebei Province. On December 12, 2001, the Vice Party Secretary of Jiacun Township, Mu Pingjun, along with about a dozen of his subordinates, arrested Tai Yurong from her home and took her to the Wangdu County brainwashing class. Nineteen other Falun Dafa practitioners from eight other nearby villages in Jiacun Township were also detained and sent to the same brainwashing class.

Tai Yurong and her fellow practitioners refused to cooperate with the evil's orders once inside the brainwashing class and went on hunger strike to protest. Under orders from the director of the "610 Office" (an agency specifically created to persecute Falun Gong, with absolute power over each level of administration in the Party as well as all other political and judiciary systems) Shang Hongzhi, the guards force-fed them over and over. They tied the practitioners' arms and legs onto beds, and then gave them forced infusions. During this time practitioners were not allowed to use the restroom.

On the third day of the hunger strike, Tai Yurong was sent to the hospital for a checkup, and she was put in isolation afterwards. Two days later, all the other Dafa practitioners were moved to the far east end of the building, leaving Tai Yurong by herself in the far west end. On the seventh day of the hunger strike, December 19, 2001, Tai Yurong passed away.
