The Persecution Methods I Experienced in Heizuizi Jail and Labor Camp
(Clearwisdom.net) The following is the persecution I personally experienced and witnessed in Heizuizi Labor Camp and Heizuizi Jail of Jilin Province.
The guards there often strip Falun Dafa practitioners naked and shock them with electric batons, and they also kick them with their hard leather shoes. To force the imprisoned Dafa practitioners to renounce Falun Dafa, they handcuff them in painful postures for a long time. Examples include putting the person in a metal chair, with their arms outstretched in handcuffs; handcuffing a person's wrists whereby one arm is extended around the body to the back and is joined with the other wrist that comes over the shoulder; compressing the whole body together in shackles so that the person cannot stretch out their back; and binding the person to a bed. Moreover, they put feces, urine, phlegm, and nasal mucus into practitioners' food, add spoonfuls of salt into the gruel, and stuff practitioners' mouths with the mop used to clean the floor. They do things that a normal person could not imagine.
In the labor camp, going to the bathroom is allowed only during limited times -- once in the morning and once in the afternoon. You must report to the warden if you need to go to the bathroom at any other time. Once, a practitioner named Wang Yuzhi had a stomachache and reported to the warden because she needed to go to the bathroom. It happened to be the wardens' dinnertime, and they cursed at her and drove her away.
If Dafa practitioners were found practicing the Falun Gong exercises, they would incite the other inmates to force them into the lavatory and open all the windows to let in the winter cold. They poured water onto the ground where the practitioners were practicing the sitting meditation. They shocked the practitioners with electric batons and pricked them with super-heated needles. They would carry the practitioners who were on hunger strike to the dining hall and force them bend over the food with their legs straight.
The imprisoned practitioners never had a comfortable meal there. They had to line up and report their roll call numbers in front of the dining hall. Then they receive a bowl and food from the guards, wash the dishes after their meal and finally line up again to leave. The whole process is only allowed to take place within 10 minutes. If someone is a bit slow, the guards would start to curse at them.
The practitioners were forced to perform extended slave labor. Every day we were awakened at 4:00 a.m. and seldom stopped working by 10:00 p.m. More frequently, the work lasted until midnight or even 2:00 in the morning.
