Illegally sentenced to forced labor, female practitioners from Guangdong Province are detained primarily at the Sanshui Forced Labor Camp and the Cuotou Woman's Education Center. The evil methods used by police officers to persecute these practitioners are beyond imagination.

They usually begin with a standing punishment, for those practitioners who have firm beliefs. In addition, practitioners are not allowed to sleep for a few days, or even as long as ten days or more. If practitioners do not renounce their beliefs, the police tie them up with ropes for long periods of time--for a few days, or even more than ten days. Female practitioner Xu Juhua was tied up so badly that her legs were seriously lacerated. To date, she is still being inhumanly tortured. ["Tying the Ropes" is a kind of cruel torture method. The police tie up the practitioner with a thin rope, circle the rope around her neck, and tie her hands behind her back. Then the police would use all the force they could muster to tighten the rope. The rope becomes tighter and tighter around the body of the practitioner, and makes it more and more difficult for her to breathe. The pain is so intense that the practitioner sometimes loses control of her bladder. There are instances when the rope was tightened enough to break a practitioner's arm.]

If a Dafa practitioner remains steadfast in their beliefs, the police tie their hands up separately, tie one leg, and leave one leg to barely touch the ground with their toes. Practitioners are hung this way for a few consecutive days, or more than ten consecutive days. As a result of this torture, female practitioner Cui Jian lost function in one foot and can not walk.

Police even forcibly insert sticks into female practitioners' vaginas. Some practitioners unwillingly move, bringing on further torture, because they could not endure this kind of sadistic treatment.

Vicious police officers have asked practitioners whom they tortured, "Will you sue us after you get out of here?" This indicates that the evil perpetrators are afraid of their crimes being exposed.

Fellow practitioners! Let's always remember that we did not come to the Earth to endure unjustifiable evil hardship imposed on cultivators. No matter how bad it seems, if we always face pressure and persecution with righteous beliefs and actions, evil behavior will be unable to surface any longer. Evil and violence are composed of only emptiness and fear.
