Mr. Yang started practicing Falun Gong in 2001 when he was 16. Once, he was reading Zhuan Falun when he was attending the Da County Railway High School as a freshman and was reported to his teacher-in-charge Li Xiuqing. Li Xiuqing and the school principal Qiu Yijiang ordered Mr. Yang to hand over the book, but he refused. Qiu Yijiang then said: “Would you rather hand over the book or stay in school to study? It's your choice.” Mr. Yang said resolutely: “I want the book.” He was thus expelled from the school. Mr. Yang then went back to the Lanjiang Middle School to study. Due to serious discrimination and emotional trauma, his grades dropped from excellent to average. He did not participate in the college entrance examination after graduating from high school. Half a year later, he went to work in Guangzhou. Once when he was explaining the truth about Falun Gong to a fellow worker, he was maliciously assaulted.

In June 2008, Mr. Yang went missing after he went to Anyue County, Sichuan Province. It is speculated that he might have been arrested while informing people about the persecution of Falun Gong. Four years have gone by, and Mr. Yang has never been heard from.

In light of reports of the Chinese Communist Party's harvesting the organs of Falun Gong practitioners for profit, his family is extremely worried about his long-term disappearance.
