The Women's Prison of Guangzhou City, where practitioners have been held and tortured for long periods, uses all of the brutal torture methods from throughout Mainland China to persecute Falun Dafa practitioners.

After being illegally sentenced to eight years in prison, Practitioner Ms. Yuan Xiaoling was held in the Fourth Division of the Women's Prison of Guangzhou City. Since she was transferred into the Women's Prison of Guangzhou City from the Detention Center of Shenzhen City in October 2004, she has been subjected to long-term torture.

Ms. Zeng Qing, 34, is a practitioner from Shaoguan City in Guangdong Province who was transferred to the Women's Prison of Guangzhou City. She was held there for three years. Because Ms. Zeng maintains a steadfast faith in Falun Dafa, she was severely tortured. When she was due for release, the authorities refused to let her leave. Now her whereabouts are not clear.

Practitioner Ms. Cai Wenjun was sentenced to seven years in prison. She was held in the Fifth Division of the Women's Prison of Guangzhou City and was severely tortured.

The following torture methods have been used in the Women's Prison of Guangzhou City to persecute those Falun Dafa practitioners who hold a steadfast belief in Falun Dafa:

Physical Torture: practitioners are totally isolated and not allowed to sleep, with five to six prisoners monitoring and torturing them in turn; practitioners are subjected to the torture method called "Hanging Up in the Air" (1), during which they are stabbed with needles as soon as they fall asleep; practitioners are not allowed use the toilet unless they beg for forgiveness as a criminal; practitioners are not allowed to take a bath, etc.

Mental Torture: practitioners are forced to read anti-Falun Dafa materials. If they refuse to read them, the prison guards read them to the practitioners constantly and force the practitioners to listen. Some practitioners are locked into a dark room and the persecutors write words that defame Falun Dafa in white on black cloth and hang the words everywhere in the room.

The detailed situation is more severe than what has been described above. Here we call on all righteous people in the world to help rescue the Falun Dafa practitioners who are being held and tortured in the Women's Prison of Guangzhou City.

The Women's Prison of Guangzhou City is located on Guangcongsi Road, Baiyun District of Guangzhou City.

The practitioners' hands are tied with thin ropes and then they are hung up for several hours, or even several days. Sometimes, the rope is so tight it breaks. Sometimes the rope cuts into the flesh. Some practitioners lose consciousness while being hung up. In many cases, the practitioners are hung by their handcuffs, which causes broken bones. See illustration on
