Comrade Liu Hulan (1932-1947) was an activist in her native village of Yunzhouxi, Shanxi Province. She became a member of the Communist Party of China in 1946.
As an organizer, she had set up a chapter of the Women’s Federation, and in her capacity as secretary of that chapter, she had been actively involved in moblizing her fellow villagers to support the CCP in the civil war. When Nationalist troops surrounded the village in 1947 and attempted to cart off the confiscated grain reserves from the public granary, she led the villagers in resistance. She was executed.
