(Clearwisdom.net) My name is Gao Shuyun. Just before the Chinese New year (on February 12th, 2002), the police deceived my husband and took him to the police station. At the police station Superintendent Liu, instructor Wang and policeman Zhanglaotie questioned us. Because my husband refused to reply, they started to punch and kick him, breaking two ribs on the right side of his body. In addition, he was bruised all over. Afterwards, because my husband said that he would persist in practicing Falun Gong, he was sentenced to three years in a forced labor camp. In the No.1 detention center of the Tieling Reform School, the police shocked him with an electric baton, beat his chest and back with a club, and forced him to do heavy physical labor. The police tortured him and tried to force him to write "Guarantee letters." Because he has persisted in his belief in Zhen (Truthfulness) Shan (Compassion) Ren (Forbearance), he is still suffering inhumane torture.

After they took my husband away, the police confiscated my family's property and detained me once again. When I told them that their behavior was illegal, Superintendent Liu said, "There is no need to discuss legality with you." They also wanted to sentence me to three years in a labor camp.

While in the detention center, I resisted the evil's persecution. I refused to wear the uniform, and I went on hunger strike without water and food on and off for 41 days. On the sixth day of my hunger strike, the medical doctor in the prison stabbed the arches of my feet with needles. Instructor Tian and several criminals tried to force some kind of syrup down my throat. Some of them sat on my body, while some pried at my teeth with a toothbrush and then with a steel spoon. They chipped four of my front teeth, but they were still not able to administer the syrup. During my time in the detention center, I was tortured severely and became emaciated. I was examined in the hospital and diagnosed with having intestinal adhesion, hypertension, and an abnormal electrocardiogram. They were afraid that I would die in the detention center, so they called my relatives and told them to come and pick me up. When my relatives saw my appearance, they all cried. After I was released, policeman Wangbiao from the municipal Public Security Bureau forced my family to pay him 1000 Yuan [Chinese currency, the monthly salary for an average Chinese urban worker is about 500 Yuan] without a receipt.

I am appealing to all kind people, please help to stop this persecution.
