(Clearwisdom.net) Masanjia Forced Labor Camp in Shenyang City, Liaoning Province, a so-called "re-education school," is holding more than one thousand three hundred (1,300) female practitioners. Five solitary confinement areas were built in the camp to persecute steadfast Falun Gong practitioners - those who refuse to give up their belief.

One such area is filled with practitioners who had gone on hunger strike, now held in solitary confinement. Practitioner Xia Ning, a 50-year-old resident of Xingcheng, Huludao, was handcuffed to a bed for 8 months for asking to be allowed to do the Falun Gong exercises. On one occasion, because she was seen sending forth righteous thoughts, she was handcuffed to the upper bunk and forced to remain standing for 4 straight nights. The police would beat anyone who asked to do the exercises and tightly bound practitioners' legs with ropes for hours, until they fell unconscious due to the extreme pain.

The torture in Masanjia Forced Labor Camp has caused some practitioners to suffer mental collapse. These practitioners include Jiang Wei from Chaoyang, Bai Kun from Guantun, Dashiqiao, and another practitioner from Benxi. To prevent their crimes from being revealed, when visitors come to the camp, the guards keep the more outspoken practitioners quiet by putting them into solitary confinement.
