Facts About Persecution in Heizuizi Women's Labor Camp in Changchun, Jilin Province
I am a Falun Dafa practitioner. During my detention in the Heizuizi Women's Labor Camp, I witnessed the cruel persecution against Dafa practitioners. I am disclosing the crimes committed there to let people know how Jiang Zemin's jail guards tortured innocent citizens.
- Liu Guiru is a female Dafa practitioner who is more than 50 years old from
Jilin Province. Although she was beaten, kicked and tortured with electric
batons by jail guards, she adamantly refused to give up her beliefs.
Whenever she practiced Falun Gong exercises at night, some common criminal
inmates would show up and assault her. The beating and verbal abuse woke
everyone up. The criminal inmates would tie her hands to the bed so she
could not practice. She would be put to work the next day as if nothing had
happened. In addition, she would be forced to clean the latrines as a
punishment. Due to the long-term physical and mental abuses, she looked very
feeble and shaky. A criminal inmate said later: "The head jail guard
ordered us to abuse you. Otherwise, our jail term will be extended. Who
doesn't want to go home earlier?" The more brutal the inmates treat
Falun Gong practitioners, the more their terms are reduced, and also more
- Because practitioner Wang Shouhui (female) refused to denounce Falun Gong,
the head jail guard Wang shocked her with an electric baton. The high
voltage burned her so badly that she could smell the burning of her own
skin. Her mouth was covered with blisters. However, nothing could shake her
determination in Falun Dafa cultivation. Since she insisted on practicing
the exercises at night, she was forced to stand still in the hallway
all-night long and work as usual the next day. She suffered both mentally
- Xing Guiling (female) from the city of Changchun refused to renounce her belief in Falun Gong. She was allowed only 2 to 3 hours of sleep per day. During the rest of the time, she was subject to constant bombardment of "reform persuasion," a kind of psychological torture. Once on her way to watch the "self-immolation" video, Ms. Xing fell down the stairs. The jail guard Wang said: "She's only in her forties. She won't die. There is no need for her to be checked." Knowing that she would never be "reformed," the head jail guard Wen grabbed her hand and forced her fingerprint on a prepared "renouncing letter." Then he announced in front of other practitioners: "Look! Xing Guiling has written the 'renouncing letter' and her fingerprint is on it." Xing immediately declared: "You forced my fingerprints on it against my will. I will never agree with it!"
- Practitioners there have to finish all the assigned work. When there is more work, they have to work overtime and sleep for only 3 to 4 hours.
To showcase its "achievements," the labor camp held a traditional Chinese dance competition during the Spring Festival. It was below -30 C [below -22 F] that day. They ordered the practitioners to take off their overcoats and dance outdoors for an hour. Since the practitioners had not been allowed to have any outdoor activity for a long time, some became very weak. As a result of the cold weather, many developed a cough and fever. A practitioner in her fifties broke her arm on the ice.
Every practitioner was forced to buy expired perfumes for 5 Yuan per bottle. The perfume was used to mask the bad smell in the cell during official visits. The authorities have no concern about the practitioners' health.
It was even more unbelievable that a jail guard, who was sent to the labor camp for narcotic abuse, continues to use drugs inside the labor camp! When the families and friends of Falun Gong practitioners visited, they were not even allowed to bring necessities. These had to be purchased in the camp. But drugs can be brought in publicly. This is more evidence of Jiang Zemin's policy of "punish the good and reward the evil."
The jail guards treat the peaceful and kind Falun Gong practitioners badly. They extend their jail terms and constantly torture them. In the meantime, they turn a blind eye on the prostitutes and drug users at their worst behaviors. Is this the so-called "the golden age of human rights in China?" Jiang Zemin and his followers grossly violate justice and the law. They try to fool the people. But justice will eventually overcome evil. More and more people have clearly seen the dirty tricks by Jiang Zemin. We hope that kind-hearted people all over the world will appeal to the Chinese government to stop the persecution of Falun Dafa and release all the innocent practitioners.
