"I Am Hungry - They Have Never Let Me Have a Full Meal"
(Clearwisdom.net) At around 10:00 p.m. on March 11, 2006, Yuan Qingsheng's family was finally able to meet Mr. Yuan in the Dianjiang Prison in Chongqing City. Yuan Qingsheng was only able to walk with small, slow steps towards his family members, and his entire body looked ill and very fragile. He was emaciated to the extent that parts of his body were distorted. His family members were shocked to see him in this condition. Mr. Yuan leaned on the window with one arm as if all his energy were drained from him, and his other arm drooped down, dangling at his side. It was obvious that the dangling arm was severely injured and he did not wish his family members to see it. Even the hand that was placed on the window was purplish in color. All this time, two prison policemen stood by his side watching.
Mr. Yuan told his family members, "I am okay, I am just hungry. They have never let me have a full meal." Hearing this, his family members rushed to buy some biscuits and eggs for him, however as soon as he finished two biscuits, the food was confiscated by the prison police.
His family members questioned a police officer with Badge No. 123325 as to why they never let Mr. Yuan have a full meal. The policemen replied, "We were instructed by our superiors, when he admits his fault, we will give him full meals, change his room, and even release him immediately. This is 'the nation's regulations'."
A few relatives of Mr. Yuan believed the hypocritical lies of the policeman and asked Yuan Qingsheng to submit to the demands. Yuan replied, "No, I am not at fault." The police officer pointed at Mr. Yuan and claimed that he was very childish - he still doesn't admit his fault at this point and still wishes to change the policemen with his ideology on spirituality and faith. The officer had been entirely brainwashed by the Chinese Communist Party (CCP), claiming that they have been especially trained by the "nation" and do not believe in such things as Falun Gong.
Yuan Qingsheng is a 54-year-old Dafa practitioner from the Jiangbei District in Chongqing City, and is an employee from the 32nd Workshop at the First Section of the Chang'an Company in Chongqing. After the persecution of Falun Gong began on July 20, 1999, Mr. Yuan traveled to Beijing to appeal to the government for justice for Falun Gong in accordance with Chinese law, but was sent to a forced labor camp for two years. He was persecuted to the brink of death at the Xishanping Forced Labor Camp and was released on bail for medical treatment in April 2002. After returning home, Yuan Qingsheng clarified the truth to people, and in April 2004, he was reported to the authorities after giving a truth-clarification CD to a co-worker at his workplace. He was forced to leave home and live in exile in Peiling in order to avoid arrest and further persecution. In May 2004, Mr. Yuan was illegally arrested by local policemen and sentenced to seven years of imprisonment.
Throughout the persecution that Dafa practitioner Yuan Qingsheng was subjected to in Peiling, he has persevered in clarifying the truth to the prison staff - telling them that "Truthfulness, Compassion, Forbearance" is good, and that Falun Dafa is good. The prison staff are all very afraid of him. Whenever Mr. Yuan's family members and relatives tried to visit him, the prison guard said, "He has not agreed to "transform," and often shouts 'Falun Dafa is good!'" Seeing that our fellow practitioner Yuan Qingsheng refuses to give up his belief and has been steadfast in his belief that Dafa is good, the prison staff transferred him to the Dianjiang Prison Discipline Team in order to achieve their goal of "transforming" him.
Family members have been refused on several visits to see Mr. Yuan. On March 11, 2006, they were finally allowed to see him. However, they were very shocked to see that he had become emaciated to the extent that his body is now distorted.
