Facts of the Persecution

Persecution of Falun Dafa Practitioners at the Pingantai Forced Labor Camp in Lanzhou City in 2001

On February 6, 2001, the guards at Division 5 of the Pingantai Forced Labor Camp in Lanzhou City, Gansu Province played slanderous videos. Dafa practitioners Wang Maolin, Shen Shiyong, Li Wenming and Chai Qiang shouted, "Falun Dafa is good!" The guards beat and kicked them, and shocked them with electric batons. In April, the guards at Division 5 tortured Dafa practitioners Li Wenming, Shen Shiyong, Niu Wanjiang, Lu Baoliang, Zhang Luchan and others.

The guards beat practitioner Song Yanzhao until they broke his ribs and his kidneys ruptured. He died from torture in May.

Practitioners Li Wenming, Zhang Luchan, Qian Shiguang, Shen Shiyong and Zhang Feng refused to cooperate with the guards and were held in solitary confinement for between 20 and 39 days. Warden Ma Youshan beat practitioner Qian Shiguang many times.
