Below are a few recent cases of persecution at the Wangcun Forced Labor Camp in Shandong Province.

Falun Gong practitioner Mr. Chu Qinghua refused to give up his belief. The guards and collaborators tortured him on a daily basis and deprived him of sleep. They often beat and abused him physically and verbally, including shocking him with electric batons and striking him with chairs. In July or August 2005, Chu Qinghua jumped from the second floor to protest the persecution and is now in critical condition. [Note: China's persecution of Falun Gong is vicious and brutal; still, it is wrong for a Falun Gong practitioner to deliberately injure his own body as a way of protest, as this directly violates Falun Gong's cultivation principles. Only truly righteous thoughts and actions will prevail over and disintegrate the persecution.]

One day in December 2005, Dafa practitioner Mr. Zhao Kegui wrote a letter to his daughter from the Wangcun Forced Labor Camp. Because the letter contained the words, "Falun Dafa is great" the guards handcuffed Zhao Kegui to the head of a bed and tortured him.

Dafa practitioner Mr. Chen An-ai from Juancheng County was illegally arrested and sent to the Wangcun Forced Labor Camp. His daughter Chen Mingyue is left at home alone.
