Dafa practitioner Ms. Yang Chunfang is 34 years old, and is from Goubangzi of Jinzhou City, Liaoning Province. She was illegally sentenced to a forced labor camp for going to Beijing to validate Dafa in 2001. In the No. 2 Team of the Second Division, No. 2 Branch of Masanjia Labor Camp, she suffered from severe persecution and was forcibly brainwashed. She resisted the torture and held hunger strikes, but was force-fed by the guards. Because she refused to wear the jail uniforms, which are meant for prisoners, and refused to recite the jail rules, she was deprived of sleep. Three collaborators* took turns torturing her for 24 hours. They held her down to the floor and folded her legs. Two of them then pressed her legs and another one beat her head. In order to prevent her from shouting out so that others could hear, they gagged her with a towel. Over ten days later, her legs were so badly damaged from the torture that she could not walk. Two people dragged her along the floor by holding her legs.

Fearing Yang's family would see from her appearance that she was being tortured, the guards did not allow them to visit her. They also deceived her family. Presently Yang Chunfang still cannot walk by herself, but she never gives in and always remains firm in her belief.

* Collaborators are former Falun Gong practitioners who have gone astray due to brainwashing and torture.
