The Persecution of Falun Gong Practitioners in Jinyun County, Zhejiang Province
(Clearwisdom.net) Since 1999, when the persecution of Falun Dafa began, lawless people in Jinyun County, Zhejiang Province have followed the orders of Jiang Zemin to brutally persecute and suppress Falun Gong practitioners. They use the media to slander and attack Falun Gong. They repeatedly abuse Dafa practitioners, injuring them physically and mentally. They arrest and imprison Dafa practitioners everywhere and illegally sentence them to forced labor camps, instilling constant fear into the family members of Dafa practitioners.
The authorities beat Dafa practitioners mercilessly at will, and torture them freely. The methods used are extremely cruel. Some Dafa practitioners suffered a bloody nose and a swollen face from severe beatings. Even now they cannot see clearly, and as a result they have difficulty getting about. Some practitioners were forced to kneel on a small wooden club, and were not allowed to eat, sleep or use the toilet for several days. The practitioners' legs bled. Their broken flesh adhered to the small wooden club. The ruthless perpetrators were still not satisfied and continued to torture them. One practitioner could not take it any longer and finally suffered a mental collapse. Another practitioner was beaten and kicked by a dozen young people, which caused this practitioner's heart to fail. He was severely injured and gasping for breath as he lay on the ground. This practitioner is no longer with us.
