The Brutal Persecution Suffered by Falun Dafa Practitioner Ms. Peng Darong
(Clearwisdom.net) Ms. Peng Darong is a Falun Dafa practitioner from Dazhou City, Sichuan Province. After the persecution of Falun Gong started, at the end of 1999, she went to Beijing to clarify the facts and validate Dafa. After Ms. Peng was "arrested" on Tiananmen Square, she was sent to a detention center in Anping County, Hebei Province. Because she refused to tell the police her home address, they beat her viciously. They then poured a bottle of cold water down her neck. When she still refused to tell them her home address, the police took out pliers, forced her mouth open, and pulled out her teeth. They wouldn't even let her wipe off the blood from her mouth.
One policeman held her head and punched her in the face. When he got tired, he found a wooden stick and started to hit her around the spleen, liver, chest and abdominal areas until the stick broke. He also spun her around while holding her collar, and then slammed her into a chair. The police tore apart Dafa books and forced Ms. Peng to step on them. After the beating, they threatened to throw her into a very deep ditch and leave her there. Ms. Peng still refused to tell them anything. So the police took turns beating and kicking her. As a result, Peng Darong had injuries all over her body and she couldn't eat solid food. She had to soak buns in soup and just swallow. The police used various methods to torture Ms. Peng for 24 hours straight. At night, the police took turns resting while Peng Darong was tortured. Finally the police gave up, because Peng Darong maintained righteous thoughts, and quietly recited Dafa throughout the torture.
On January 5, 2000, Peng Darong left the detention center with the help of friends and family, and joined her husband in Shanglin County, Xi'an City, Shanxi Province. At that time, many Dafa banners were found in the area. Because Ms. Peng had just moved there, the local officials arrested her again. The security section head of the Shanglin County Detention Center, Gao Lei, was particularly virulent in persecuting Dafa practitioners. He extorted money from families of practitioners and would not release anyone unless paid.
On December 23, 2002, Peng Darong was sent to Zizhong City Women's Forced Labor Camp in Sichuan Province, where she suffered from all kinds of inhuman treatment and witnessed the brutal persecution of other Falun Dafa practitioners. This labor camp is a living hell. Among all the guards, squadron captain Zhang Xiaofang of the No. 7 Squadron is the most vicious in persecuting practitioners. In the middle of winter, she forced female practitioners to take off their pants and stand in the piercing cold wind. She tied practitioners' legs in the double lotus position with ropes and shocked them with electric batons. She would not let practitioners use the toilet. There was one practitioner who could not speak loud enough to ask permission to use the toilet. Her whole body shook as she tried to hold back the urine, and eventually she lost control. Another practitioner, Ms. Fu Liqiong, suddenly passed out. She was sent to the hospital and her blood pressure was found to be over 200. The doctor found a big lump in her lower abdominal area. As it turned out, she had not urinated for several days. The doctors inserted a tube into her bladder to relieve the pressure; but after she got back from the hospital the guards instructed criminal inmates to beat her and injured her liver. Then she was locked in a small room. The authorities taped pieces of paper displaying slanderous words on her body.
Guard Zhang Xiaofang tormented Dafa practitioners and insulted Falun Dafa's founder and Falun Gong practitioners. She also humiliated practitioners by tying bowls and food in front of their chests or behind their buttocks.
