(Clearwisdom.net) Falun Dafa practitioner Mr. Zhou Jingcheng, 42, lives in Ningxiang County, Changsha City, Hunan Province. He started cultivating Falun Dafa in 1996. On January 4, 2006, the County State Security agents and police from Meijiatian Station arrested him at his family-owned store without just cause. They sent him to be detained in the Shaoshan City State Security Division. On January 5, 2006, he was locked in Jin City Prison in the Changde Prefecture. He has been on hunger strike without water to protest the persecution. He has been brutally force-fed, causing four of his front teeth to break off. His life is in danger. Fellow practitioners, whoever sees this news, please help rescue him.

Since the persecution began on July 20, 1999, Mr. Zhou has been mistreated and harassed multiple times, without living one day in peace.

On July 22, 1999, Mr. Zhou Jingcheng was detained for 13 days. Authorities extorted five thousand yuan from him.

In 2000, State Security agents harassed him three times at his home, and detained him four times. Among these four times, in November 2000, he was detained for 28 days and had fifteen thousand yuan extorted from him because he went to Beijing to appeal for Falun Dafa. In December 2000, he was sent to two years of forced labor by the Ningxiang County State Security agents, and was locked in the Xinkaipu Labor Camp located in Changsha City until May 23, 2002.

In June 2002, he was detained for eight days by State Security agents because he contacted his fellow practitioners. A further five thousand yuan was escorted from him.

On October 28, 2002, Ningxiang County State Security agents deceived him, and locked him in Baimaqiao Police Station with excuse of "assisting police work." He was deprived of his right to sleep or to eat for five whole days, tortured by 5-6 guards (in turns) that cruelly beat him. He went through all sorts of torture. He was tortured to the point of death many times. Without notifying his family, he was sent to another two years of forced labor locked in the Xinkaipu Labor Camp until September 2004.

In October 2004, Mr. Zhou was arrested again by Shaoshan City policemen when passing out truth clarification VCDs on the road between Ningxiang County and Shaoshan City. He was sentenced to six years in prison. He had been on hunger strike without water ever since he was detained in the Shaoshan City Detention Center. The Jin City Prison refused to accept him since he was dying. His family picked him up after 49 days hunger strike without water, and his family was extorted of another five thousand yuan.

In 2005, Ningxiang County State Security Agent Liao Wenjian (male) demanded one of Mr. Zhou Jingcheng's customer's to accept five thousand yuan in exchange for asking Mr. Zhou for a copy of the Nine Commentaries on the Communist Party, thereby fabricating an excuse to arrest Mr. Zhou yet again. The customer refused to cooperate with such evil.

Ningxiang County State Security agents committed many more misdeeds in the persecution. For instance,

(1) Falun Dafa practitioner Gaibaoling High School Teacher Zhu (teaches 9th grade) from Jinghuapu Township was secretly sent to Xinkaipu Labor Camp, and the State Security agents threatened the whole school stating, "Whoever talks about Teacher Zhu's forced labor term will be dismissed from work or expelled from school."

(2) Falun Dafa practitioner Mr. Wang Gang and his wife Yang Cuiying (who own Wang Gang Photography on Baima Blvd.) were sentenced to two years of forced labor, and locked in the Xinkaipu Labor Camp and Baimalong Labor Camp.

(3) Falun Dafa practitioner Mr. Sun Wu from Beitang Township was sentenced to two years forced labor, and locked in Xinkaipu Labor Camp.

(4) When State Security agents discovered that Falun Dafa practitioner Ms. Wang Liqiang's home (located in Shahe Market) was a materials site, they installed a hidden camera across the street. After long-term monitoring, they destroyed the center, and sent both Ms. Wang Liqiang and Ms. Liu Meijun (also a practitioner, a retired doctor from the County Chinese Medicine Hospital) to two years forced labor in Baimalong Women's Labor Camp. The camp refused to accept them. Ms. Wang appeared very sick. Ms. Liu had strong righteous thoughts when she was in the Camp before and as soon as they were arrested this time. They were both detained in the County Detention Center for a period of time. Ms. Wang Liqiang was released, but Ms. Liu was sent to the Baimalong Labor Camp again.

(5) Falun Dafa practitioner Mr. Liu Zhiqiang from Shahe Market was followed by the County State Security agents for several months. He was arrested by Changsha City State Security agents on December 20, 2005, and sent to Changqiao Labor Camp on December 23, 2005, to serve a two-year forced labor term.
