Thirty Falun Gong Practitioners on Labor Strike at the Jiamusi Labor Camp to Protest their Enslavement
(Clearwisdom.net) About six months ago, authorities at the Jiamusi Labor Camp entered into a contract with a private firm to produce cellular phone cases. The raw materials used for the cell phone cases are substandard and contain toxic substances far exceeding the permissible limits, and are carcinogenic. The police and guards who supervise the work are even afraid to stay in the workshop. However, Falun Gong practitioners are forced to remain in the workshop to make the cell phone cases. After a period of time, practitioners' health is severely damaged by the toxic substances.
Every day, practitioners have breakfast at 7:00 a.m. Then they work from 7:30 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. After lunch, they work from 12:30 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. Sometimes they have to work until 5:30 p.m. They are only allowed to use the restroom twice during the day. For the rest of the time, they are forced to work nonstop. Whenever they slow down, they would be cursed at or beaten, or else have their terms extended. The meals are very poor every day. Among the practitioners forced to do slave labor, 68-year-old Zhu Xiuzhi is the oldest.
Due to the long-term persecution, especially the brutal torture "large handcuffs behind the back," many practitioners have been severely injured or even disabled. Many have heart problems. Some people even have difficulty walking. Yet under this circumstance, the labor camp still forces practitioners to work for long periods of time. Many people can hardly continue.
Since February 14, about 15 practitioners have gone on labor strike. By February 20, the number of practitioners going on strike has increased to about 30. The police are intensifying the persecution of these practitioners. The situation is now critical. We appeal to people of conscience to pay close attention to this situation.
