Can you talk about your opinions of Falun Gong in detail?" This scholar immediately replied, "This is a most important question, and I must answer it first." The audience gave him warm applause. Then the meeting-room was very quiet. This scholar said calmly, "I can positively tell you that all Falun Gong practitioners are good people and the principles proposed by Falun Gong are full of humanity." He won a round of applause, which expressed both the audience's admiration toward this righteous, brave, and outspoken scholar and its support and respect for Falun Dafa.

[Shannxi Province] Shannxi Province's Female Forced Labor Camp Mistreats Dafa Practitioners
Since April 2002, Shannxi Province's Female Forced Labor Camp has separated 23 Falun Gong practitioners for forced brainwashing to have them give up their belief in Truth-Compassion-Tolerance. Several people tortured one practitioner. They forced practitioners to face the wall every day and didn't allow them to go to bed until after 3:00 a.m. They attempted to destroy the practitioners' wills. Policemen beat Ms. Li Cuifang so hard that she lost control of her bladder and bowels and her current condition is unknown. Ms. Ding Xiaoyu's detention term was extended by five months and she hasn't been released yet.
The forced labor camp set up some "close administration" cells. The practitioners put into these cells had to report when entering or exiting the cell, otherwise they would be deprived of the right to use the toilet. The practitioners had no way out but to relieve themselves in their basins. The guards then poured the urine from the basins into practitioners' bowls. Under this situation, the practitioners decided to stage a hunger strike. During the hunger strike period, they were force-fed, forcibly injected and suffered all kinds of tortures. However, the practitioners persisted in their belief to the end and refused to give in. Their steadfast righteous thoughts frightened the evil forces and nine days after they began their hunger strike, they eventually were freed from the "tight administration" cells.
Guards at the forced labor camp tortured practitioners who persisted in doing the exercises with all kinds of means including brutally beating, handcuffing to the windowsills and being forced to wear a specially made piece of clothing that prevents practitioners from doing the exercises. It has very tight long sleeves, which are tied to the back of the body so that practitioners can't move their arms.
According to news leaked from the forced labor camp, many practitioners had written a so-called "repentance statement" against their wills and thereafter wrote solemn declarations to declare the previous material they had written to be null and void. The guards at the forced labor camp then became extremely furious and escalated their persecution against these practitioners.
