Falun Dafa practitioner Yu Chunhua is a resident of Xiqugezhuang Village, Xiagezhuang County, Laixi City, Shangdong Province.

In September 2000, Yu Chunhua walked for nine days to Beijing to appeal for Dafa. After she was arrested, she was illegally detained for half a month before she was released. In October, Yu Chunhua was again taken away by police from the county police substation, without any reason. The police tried to force her to give up her belief in "Truthfulness, Compassion, and Forbearance." She steadfastly refused to give in, and sat on the ground in the sitting meditation to show her determination. Policemen Zhang Chao and Zhang Shu kicked her legs, feet and arms quite hard, and used a red-hot hook to burn her feet.

Yu Chunhua was arrested and released many times. In 2001 on the 17th day of the first month in the lunar year, in order to clarify the truth to the world's people and the government, she walked to Beijing one more time to appeal for Dafa. She has not come back from this trip, and her whereabouts are still unknown.
