Twenty-Seven Methods of Torture Used In the Wutongqiao Detention Center, Leshan City, Sichuan Province
(Clearwisdom.net) The police in Wutongqiao Detention Center, Leshan City, Sichuan Province utilize 27 cruel methods to torture Falun Gong practitioners. The group leader of a local "610 Office"* Du once said, "You will be melted even if you are made of steel, and every Falun Gong practitioner will go through this treatment."
The following account documents some of the unimaginably cruel torture methods and the horrifying names they are called by that are utilized in this detention center.
"Dripping Naked": Falun Gong practitioners are stripped naked in winter and drenched with ice-cold water, following with a violent brushing of the entire body with a tooth-brush, until blood appears from lacerated skin.
"Turtle Moving the Sand": Practitioners are stripped naked in winter, drenched with water and covered with detergent. After that, one is rolled on the ground until blisters form all over the body, begin to bleed and until one passes out.
"A Hundred Treasure Soup": A Falun Gong practitioner will be forced to swallow other criminal inmates' spit and nasal mucus. One practitioner was endlessly tortured like this for an entire winter.
"Explode The Throat": Falun Gong practitioners do not smoke or drink. In this torture method they are forced to swallow the burning end of a cigarette butt from the criminal inmates.
"Bumping The Star": Smashing practitioner's heads repeatedly against the wall until they bleed. The walls are covered with bloodstains.
"Stir Fry The String Beans": A practitioner's finger is sandwiched between toothbrush handles and smashed down hard, until the skin becomes mangled. Sometimes the finger becomes severely infected and the bone sticks out.
"Fry and Stew Pig's Feet": Practitioners are tortured by pressing a burning cigarette end against their fingernails, burning them. The smell is awful, and later the fingernail usually decays and peels off.
"Pulling the Spinach": Forcefully ripping out practitioners' pubic hair.
"Fire The Glands Penis": Practitioner's have suffered incredible sexual torture and in this case have their penis foreskin tied with paper twine and then the paper is lit. Soon the penis foreskin begins burning and blistering, and later becomes infected, causing agonizing pain.
"Each One Is Sound": Practitioner's are held down and their teeth are hit with a toothbrush handle like a chisel until the teeth are loose and bleeding, even breaking off.
There are numerous other horrific methods of torture that don't have any name but nonetheless are used against Falun Gong practitioners.
We hope that local practitioners recognize the evil behind the persecution, and help and encourage each other to study Fa more and cultivate one's heart, and to establish strong righteous thoughts and send forth righteous thought more. The attachment to fear is one excuse the evil forces use to persecute us, as long as we won't let go of fear and other attachments, the evil forces will think that they still have "hope", and that one day we will yield when we can not take it any more. Once Dafa practitioners let go of life and death and all the worldly attachments, the evil will be eliminated and the persecution will be ended.
*The 610 Office is an agency specifically created to persecute Falun Gong, with absolute power over each level of administration in the Party and all other political or judicial systems.
