4. Tortured to the Brink of Death
When I was in the Strictly Controlled Team, Zeng Zhiping from Tongnan County asked me, "Oh! how did you come to look like this?" I said, "Zhang Liang sent me to a labor camp. Policemen and convicts in the Xishanping Labor Camp abused and brutalized me. My condition is proof." Zeng Zhiping looked surprised. When I was sent back to Tongnan County, Zeng said, "You stay here for several days, then you can go home." But I was delivered to a custodial center and detained there. Liu Yong came to visit. When he saw me he said, "How come you look so old?" On the morning of March 5, I began a hunger strike. Vicious officers said, "As soon as you eat and write a guarantee statement, you can go home."
There were practitioners who didn't write the guarantee statement during his or her stay in the labor camp between year 2001 and 2002. When they were released from the labor camp, they would be detained in a brainwashing class or custodial center for an unlimited term. The authorities tried to force them to write a guarantee statement. If they couldn't get a "not practicing Dafa" statement, they would insist that the practitioners write statements about not going to Beijing [to appeal for Falun Gong] and not distributing truth-clarifying materials, or they would order practitioners' family members to write the statements on their behalf. The Tongnan County brainwashing classes ran many times, off and on, from September 2000 to 2004.
On March 12, 2002, the 8th day of my hunger strike, perpetrators from the 610 Office brought three female doctors from the county hospital to force-feed me. Li Nongyun and Liu Yongjian from the 610 Office, Mr. Liu from the custodial center and two other officers held me down on a bench. Three doctors inserted the feeding tube into my nose. They force-fed me with a large amount of liquid food. After the force-feeding, I felt dizzy, had chest pain, and was extremely nauseous.
The clinic section of the county hospital has always participated in the force-feeding and injection of Dafa practitioners. Liu Guanghai (clinic section) was a permanent prison doctor who participated in force-feeding Zhang Hua, Wu Yongmei, and others. When other doctors came to do these tasks, he would make the arrangements. One of the county hospital officials, Zhang Daiyou, was Zhang Liang's (the National Security Team leader) older brother.
My condition continued to worsen and my weight dropped. On the 16th of March, Li Nongyun, Liu Yongjian, Deng Guoxin, Mr. Liu and others, seven or eight people, held me down on a chair. They ordered three doctors (female and male) to force-fed me. They inserted the tube into my trachea three times. They pulled the tube out and stuck it in repeatedly, two or three times. I was unable to breathe. The pain was unbearable and I almost suffocated. My body went into convulsions. I was at the brink of death. On of the vicious doctors said, "Oh, you even want to jump up?" They pushed me down harder.
On the 18th I started to vomit blood. My cellmate called for the guards. Liu Yong called the 610 Office. On the 19th, officials from the 610 Office brought three doctors. They measured my blood pressure and then left. On the afternoon of the 20th, perpetrators dragged me to the county hospital against my will. I was put into the Internal Medicine Inpatient Care Center and was given an injection. Later, Cai Pin (from the 610 Office) and another five or six people came to the hospital. They were afraid of taking any responsibility for my death and told Zeng Zhiping, Liu Yongjian and another guard to send me home. At that time my body was nothing but skin and bones.
5. Becoming Homeless; Separated from My Four-year-old Daughter
After I went back home on March 20, 2002, and was recovering from the persecution, policemen Li Hengyi, Luo Yonghong, Zeng Zhiping, and Zhou Nanmin often came to my home to harass me.
Nearly a year passed. One day, my mother and mother-in-law went to a grocery market and were arrested by Zhang Liang (from the National Security Team), Li Hengyi (policeman), and others. Li Hengyi struck my mother-in-law on the head in front of the public in the market. Later, they took them to the Tongnan Police Department. My mother-in-law underwent a hunger strike in protest of their unlawful arrest. They force-fed her. When the feeding tube was pulled out, it was covered in blood. She vomited blood for many days afterward. They detained her for over 40 days. When she was released, Zhang Liang produced a fifteen-day detention card; he had left the dates blank.
In the beginning of October 2003, the County Head, Wei Shouming, gave a speech in a meeting, "Tighten Control on Falun Gong." On October 13, Li Hengyi and Luo Yonghong (policemen from the National Security Team), ignoring the law, came to my residence and searched my home. They took a copy of the book Zhuan Falun and also attempted to arrest me and my wife, Wu Yongmei, and take us to the Tianyuanhua brainwashing class. But at that time only my mother (Fu Ruxian) and my mother-in-law (Fu Ruhuan) were at home, so their plan didn't succeed.
From then, on I chose to leave home to avoid illegal arrest. I was apart from my family and my daughter. On December 23, 2003 my wife, Wu Yongmei, was arrested. One week later the police took away my four-year-old daughter Zhang Yuanyuan. My wife went on a hunger strike to protest. After more than fifty days of detention, she walked out of there. She had to go into exile as well. The authorities didn't release my daughter until half a year later, when my family demanded her return. My daughter hasn't seen her parents since. Relatives are now taking care of her. She's suffered a lot of trauma at a very young age. On the sensitive dates the perpetrators come to harass my family and attempt to arrest us.
My mother-in-law suffered severe mental trauma from the persecution . She has become afraid of strangers. Her memory is almost gone. My mother, Fu Ruxian, also suffered severely from the persecution. Her condition prohibited her from leaving Xinjiang Province to go to her hometown, Tongnan County. My fifth aunt, Fu Rufen, has been homeless for many years to avoid persecution and arrest. Her son is now in college, but she is unable to be there for him. Her son also lost financial resources after she was gone. After my sixth aunt walked out of a labor camp in October 2001, Zhang Liang arrested her for the fourth time. They didn't release her until she was tortured to the brink of death.
