None of the detained practitioners were allowed visitors.
A reliable source said that in one Wangchun Forced Labor Camp, the number of detained female practitioners has exceeded 1000.

Practitioners in Qingdao City: please be cautious and use your righteous thoughts to destroy the evil suppression.
We suggest that all practitioners in the Qingdao area send out righteous thoughts every 5:30AM and 10PM together to eliminate the evils in the Qingdao area and in Three Realms. We shall defeat the evil and help the detained practitioners to walk out of the evil's den.

The police guards at Shuangkou Forced Labor Camp tried many methods to apply both physical and mental tortures on steadfast practitioners.
First, they ordered the practitioners to do heavy labor. The workload was so heavy that many practitioners had to work until mid-night. Some practitioners' hands have become deformed by the hard work, while some could only sleep about two hours every day for over two weeks.
Second, they forced the practitioners to read articles defaming Falun Dafa. The police guards brutally beat and cursed anyone who felt sleepy during the reading.
Some practitioners kept on practicing the exercises in the camp. The guards would shock them with three or four electric batons simultaneously, but the practitioners would not give up. Those steadfast practitioners had many injuries. The Four firmest practitioners were called "Four Vajras" (Buddha's Warrior attendants).
The health conditions in this labor camp are very bad. Practitioners can rarely bathe.
