The Erdaopeng Brainwashing Class in Wuhan City, Hubei Province, Kidnaps and Relentlessly Tortures Dafa Practitioners
Written on August 11, 2002
The Erdaopeng Brainwashing Class in Wuhan City, Hubei Province kidnapped and continuously tortured over 100 Falun Dafa practitioners. Additionally, many practitioners were illegally sent to forced-labor camps or sentenced to jail.
A number of staff members at the brainwashing center were influenced by the great tolerance and compassion displayed in the Dafa disciples' words and actions. They started to have a new understanding of Dafa. As a result, some of the staff truly obtained Dafa at the brainwashing class. One employee said, "Before coming here my supervisor said I was not allowed to talk to you. But we think that what you say is quite reasonable. Dafa is so good. We would also like to learn it." One day, the supervisors came to inspect the class and said, "We could not find any problem with them. They just want to study the book and practice the exercises of Falun Gong."
The evil people were in great panic after seeing more and more staff at the brainwashing class become clear-minded, so they assigned more police officers to "monitor" the class, and formulated a plan to stop the practitioners from clarifying the truth. Three policemen were ordered to surround one practitioner, watching them closely even when the practitioners were eating or needed to use the washroom. Policemen burned the body and hand of an elderly Dafa practitioner Ms. Liu Yufen, simply because she practiced Falun Gong. Another Dafa disciple Ms. Li Yunfang, also elderly, was released because her husband signed a pledge for her and paid 10,000 Yuan(the average monthly income of a Chinese worker is 500 Yuan). Later policemen arrested Li Yunfang again and extorted from her family another 6,000 Yuan to release her.
Dafa practitioner Yao Zhiwen, who used to work in the police station, has been detained for a total of three years. Yao was sent to the detention center three times, and was later illegally sentenced to forced-labor for one year. After he was released from the labor camp, he was illegally kidnapped and taken to a brainwashing class, where he went on a hunger strike to protest. One day later, he was sent to the detention center again, and then back to the brainwashing class once again.
We appeal to all international institutions and kind-hearted people worldwide to join together to help end this brutal persecution and rescue the Falun Dafa practitioners who are in dangerous situations as soon as possible.
