Wuchang District "610" Office Sets up Brainwashing Class to Illegally Hold and Torment Falun Gong Practitioners for Prolonged Periods of Time
(Clearwisdom.net) Near the Wuchang No. 2 Bridge on the Changjiang River, a prison is holding approximately 40 Falun Gong practitioners in captivity. This is the Wuchang "610" Office's brainwashing class, which lawless officials from the Wuchang District of Wuhan City, Hubei Province have created specifically to torture Falun Gong practitioners. (The "610" office is an agency specifically created to persecuteáFalun Gong, with absolute power over each level of administration in the Party and all other political and judiciary systems.)Carrying out Jiang's orders, the brainwashing class employed a team of "brainwashing specialists" and other thugs, actively persecuting practitioners who remain steadfast in their belief of "Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance." In the past years, countless Dafa practitioners have been illegally detained and persecuted here. Dafa practitioners Li Yingxiu (mother of Cai Mingtao) and Peng Min were tortured to death in this prison.
From the design of the prison cells to the implementation of the brainwashing process, the Wuchang "610" Office has used every means at their disposal. The rooms used to hold practitioners were built like solitary confinement cells in a prison. Each Dafa practitioner is detained in solitude in a small cell that never sees sunlight throughout the year. They are deprived of the basic rights of a human being. Not only are they being forced to pay a 900 Yuan monthly fee for "living expenses," (500 Yuan is the average urban income in China) they are also subjected to body searches, physical torture, or other punishments at any time by police and those running the class. The brainwashing class staff tortures Falun Gong practitioners mentally, physically, and economically. The Wuchang "610" Office has received many "awards" from the provincial and city governments for their "achievements" in persecuting Falun Gong. Many groups of people from other regions come and learn from their experiences of doing evil deeds.
The brainwashing class has totally violated the country's constitution and laws by holding Dafa practitioners in detention for an unlimited period of time without cause. A group of determined Falun Gong practitioners who refuse to give up their faith have been detained here for over a year. The head of the District "610" Office declared that unless Falun Gong practitioners are brainwashed, they will be locked up in the prison for ten or even twenty years. Furthermore, determined practitioners who have completed their detention terms in forced labor camps and still refuse to stop practicing Falun Gong are sent to this "610" Office's brainwashing class for persecution. On December 28, 2001, the Wuchang District police forced their way into the homes of 15 practitioners, illegally searched their homes and forcefully took these practitioners to the brainwashing classes.
The Wuchang "610" Office brainwashing class is another obvious piece of evidence of the criminal acts of Jiang and his followers in brutally persecuting Falun Gong practitioners. They have violated international conventions and trampled on the Chinese Constitution!
