No Justice in China: Does Refusing to Receive Forced Brainwashing Constitute A Crime?
(Clearwidsom.net) About half a month ago, I called Sanshui Women's Forced Labor Camp in Guangdong Province to inquire when my wife, Ms. Zhou Xuefei, was scheduled to be released. The policeman answering the phone replied, "She will not be released until she renounces her belief in Falun Gong." After I said that the Chinese Constitution warranted every Chinese citizen freedom of personal belief, he started to avoid discussing why my wife had been detained in the first place. He told me, "We are extending the period of her detention because she has violated some of the regulations of the detention center." But he would not say what type of regulations that they accused my wife of violating. It is simply unreasonable and intolerable that Sanshui extended the period of my wife's detention at will after she had already finished her three years sentence in the forced labor camp.
If a prison inmate beats up others, bullies others, or commits a crime, it is true that she has violated the regulations in the forced labor camp and that she deserves an extension of her detention. However, the entire cell of prison inmates had been monitoring and torturing my wife since she was thrown into Sanshui Women's Forced Labor Camp. How is it possible for her to be given any chance to violate any of the regulations at the forced labor camp?
Afterwards, I conducted some research and compiled a partial list of perfectly legal actions that are branded as violations against the regulations in the forced labor camp:
- Practicing Falun Gong exercises
- Retaining Falun Gong books or materials
- Refusing to attend forced brainwashing classes in the forced labor camp that are designed to force one to renounce one's belief in Falun Gong
- Announcing "Falun Dafa is good" or refusing to write false testimonies to slander Falun Gong that are mandatory "homework" of the brainwashing classes in the forced labor camp
- Sharing personal experiences of cultivating in Falun Gong with prison inmates
- Refusing to perform forced labor to manufacture embroidery products for export. (The Jiang regime keeps giving false promises to the international community that China does not make prison inmates perform forced labor for exported goods.)
Are the regulations at the forced labor camp designed to teach prison inmates to betray their good conscience and tell lies? If the answer is 'Yes', those who create such "regulations" ought to be removed from their posts immediately and face legal responsibilities. If the answer is 'Yes', shouldn't such a depraved system of forced labor camps that leads prison inmates to the height of their villainous ways be abolished right away?
As a matter of fact, "violating the forced labor camp's regulations" is no more than a despicable excuse that the staff uses to persecute those Falun Gong practitioners who refuse to attend forced brainwashing classes and who refuse to renounce their belief in Falun Gong.
