Practitioner Du Jincai has been on Hunger Strike for 190 Days; His Life Is in Imminent Danger
(Clearwisdom.net) Falun Gong practitioner Du Jincai is a worker from Jinhua of Liaoning Province. He is currently detained in the Huludao Forced Labor Camp for practicing Falun Gong. To protest the persecution, Du Jincai has been on a hunger strike for 190 days and his life is in danger. We call on people from all walks of life to pay close attention to his situation and rescue Du Jincai.
Mr. Du, 43, worked for Jinhua Chemistry Industry Group. Practicing Falun Gong brought him better health and raised his moral character. He is a hard working, honest and kind person whose outstanding character won him praise from his colleagues and supervisors. Du Jincai's mother is over 70 years old, his son is in school, and his wife works in Jinhua. His family environment was full of harmony and joy.
Du Jincai's mother has a heart condition. Seeing her son under brutal persecution, her heart is broken and she often cries, hoping for her son's return.
When the family went to the labor camp to visit Du Jincai, the labor camp refused any visitation. When they asked the police, "Why will you not let us visit Du Jincai and how is he doing?" The forced labor camp ignored them replying, "It's not news that people die in a forced labor camp."
Since Jiang's regime began the persecution of Falun Gong in July of 1999, Du Jincai has been detained several times. During his first detention at Huludao Forced Labor Camp, he suffered both physical and mental torture. When he was released and went back to work, he worked hard as before.
On April 26, 2004, however, the National Security Brigade of Huludao Public Security Bureau at Lianshan Branch arrested Du Jincai from his workplace. He was sentenced to three years of forced labor without any legal procedures. On April 29, without notifying him or his family, the police forcefully sent him to the Huludao Forced Labor Camp.
In the forced labor camp, Du Jincai refused to give up the practice of Falun Gong. As a result, he was brutally tortured. Since July 9, 2004, Du Jincai has been on a hunger strike to protest the persecution. During his hunger strike, the forced labor camp brutally force-fed him. He was forced down on the ground. The perpetrators tightly held down his legs and arms. They tried to pry open his mouth but failed, and instead, they inserted the feeding tube down his nose into his stomach, causing internal damages. He has severe stomach pains, and headaches and his whole body is in pain. He also feels light-headed as though he is going to faint. He was locked in solitary confinement, where he was subjected to more torture.
On August 23, 2004, the head of the Disciplinary Department at the labor camp, Yang Lianyuan, team head Liu Guohua, and Wang Yongming used the excuse that the practitioners did not report their assigned prisoner numbers, and so incited inmate Yuan Bing to brutally torture Du Jincai and practitioner Yao Shan, who was also on a hunger strike at that time. Both practitioners were forced to down on the ground in a "body-folding" (1) position while the policemen slapped their faces, beat and shocked them with electric batons.
As of January 19, 2005, Du Jincai has been on a hunger strike for 190 days. He is extremely weak and his life is in danger.
We call for an urgent, worldwide rescue to stop the persecution of Falun Gong and support Falun Gong practitioners' human rights.
