(Clearwisdom.net) In Xinmengzhuang Village, Zhangjiakou City, Hebei Province, Falun Gong practitioners can be detained or beaten at any time and for any reason. This can happen even while they are at home doing ordinary things. One night, in January 2001, a group of local officials suddenly forced some kindhearted Falun Gong practitioners from their homes and took them to the forced labor brigade. This was the start of the brainwashing classes for those practitioners in that village.

After three days, the brainwashing class was moved to a school. That night, the village (Party name omitted) Secretary Zhang, Deputy Director of the town Cong Jinjun and a man named Yao began to slander Falun Dafa and curse practitioners in a wild manner. They didn't leave until they completely vented their anger.

On the fourth day, Secretary Zhang, Director Cong and Bai Shusheng, the Director of the police station, came back to make more trouble. Zhang had two men from the Judicial Department beat Zhang Dun and Zhang Gen, two people who had not practiced Falun Gong. The scene was so horrible to watch that a woman witnessing the event who had a heart condition became so frightened that she nearly passed out on the spot. Only after seeing this did the Judicial Department men stop the beating.

On the fifth day, the scoundrels forced another three people who had never practiced Falun Gong to come to the school. Officials forced families of those practitioners being held against their will to give 150 Yuan each to 'bail a person out'. The families would give the money out of fear that practitioners would be beaten if they didn't. One old lady said: "I don't practice Falun Gong, I won't give any money." A village official named Yao immediately started cursing like a madman at the old lady. She kept weeping and weeping while another villager was too scared to move. Seeing that they were causing a scene, the officials became flustered and left.

Secretary Zhang yelled in the class, "I represent Jiang Zemin! Beating Falun Gong practitioners to death counts for nothing!"

The practitioners were detained for 25 days. In addition to this, these officials confiscated the practitioners' TV sets, recorders, and real estate before they released them.

This is a true account of what really occurs in these brainwashing classes. They are filled with violence, cheating and extortion.

Not long after, Secretary Zhang was accused of embezzlement and discharged from his post and his party membership. Evil deeds will always be punished. Please support kindhearted Falun Gong practitioners -- if everybody offers their support, the power of true justice will prevail.
