[Minghui net]Since the year 2000, ruthless persecution of Falun Gong practitioners in the Labor Camp of Daqing City, Heilongjiang Province has never stopped. One of the practitioners was beaten to death for not writing a conversion letter. Many others received all sorts of physical punishments and torture, such as being shut in a confinement cell, shouldering a heavy load of earth, excavating stone, harvesting grass in the marsh, and standing outside in unbuttoned clothes exposed to mosquitoes, standing for 5-7 days without sleep, the body being positioned in the shape of an airplane, and being beaten with electronic prods and wooden clubs.

Recently, a serious incident took place on Jan 30, 2001, the seventh day of the Chinese Lunar New Year season. The supervising policeman, together with other prisoners, beat ten practitioners for doing the exercises of Falun Gong in a group. Practitioner Bai Xuchang was isolated for one day without a meal. Practitioner Qiao Yongsheng was hurt in the corner of the eye. Another one, Du, was lame after the beating and couldn't walk easily. The demons laid down a rule afterwards: No talk or exchange of greetings among Falun Gong practitioners would be allowed. Otherwise there would be a beating.

Until now the violence in Daqing City Labor Education Institute is unbridled. Their disregard of State Law and the trampling of human rights resulted in the severe persecution of Falun Gong practitioners. We have written to appeal to the Procuratorate of Daqing City and asked the administration of the Labor Camp to submit it to related organizations. But there has been no reply at all. We also wrote many times to the administration, requiring punishment for the evil deed according to law, but the evil is still rampant. Therefore we have to appeal to all of the kind-hearted people in society, please give us your support and help change the difficult situation of Falun Gong practitioners. We ask the authorities again, please release all Falun Gong practitioners as not guilty and clear away all the slanders and smear of Falun Dafa.

So far the most vicious man in the Labor Camp of Daqing City is the deputy officer of No.3 Labor Team. He used to be Head Officer of No.2 Labor Team. He was transferred to No.3 Team because practitioners went on a hunger strike after he beat practitioner Zuo Guoqing. He has harbored hatred ever since. The incident on Jan 30 was under his instruction. He once tied practitioners together and burnt books of Falun Gong in front of them. At present, the ten practitioners in No. 3 Team are living in great misery and under pressure.
