The Brutal Persecution of Dafa Practitioners at Xinhua Forced Labor Camp in Mianyang, Sichuan Province
(Clearwisdom.net) The No. 2 Team, No. 6 Division, of Xinhua Forced Labor Camp, Mianyang, Sichuan Province is an evil group that illegally imprisons and persecutes Falun Gong practitioners.
Since January 2005, the persecution of Falun Gong practitioners there has escalated. On December 2, 2005, the police, led by Deputy Chief Zhao Zeyong and Division Cadre Su Xin, carried out an unprecedented and rampant persecution of all Falun Gong practitioners in Xinhua Forced Labor Camp. Many practitioners were tied up tightly, pinned down to the ground, had their heads beaten until they were swollen and bloody, and were shocked by electric batons. On top of that, it was decided in a meeting that their confinement and "re-education" in the camp would be extended.
To date, there are still more than forty Falun Gong practitioners imprisoned, segregated and persecuted in Xinhua Forced Labor Camp, including Mr. Lu Zhiyong (Both Mr. Lu and his wife were sent to the forced labor camp), Mr. Luo Qingsheng, Mr. Wu Xingdong, Mr. Lu Chunsong, and many others.
The police in the camp shout hysterically at the Falun Gong practitioners that they have become the enemy and are a counter-revolutionary bloc. What do the police do? They beat people. They do not care about the injustice of their actions; if anyone does not obey the instructor, then he or she will suffer physical abuse. When practitioners are badly beaten, they are sent to the camp hospital. After they recover, they will be tortured some more. Practitioners are told that they deserve to be tortured to death.
The physical tortures that the wicked police inflict on Falun Gong practitioners include:
sleep deprivation; pulling out eyebrows, hair and beards; burning with cigarette butts; forcing practitioners to stand, sit, and squat in so-called military positions for a long time; shocking with up to 10 electric batons at a time; tying practitioners up with specialized methods; punches; kicks; pinching practitioners; and forcing them to wear an overcoat and a motorcycle helmet on hot days.
Falun Gong practitioners in Xinhua are raped in spirit, being forced to write the three statements to renounce their belief in Falun Gong, as well as being forced to read books and watch brainwashing videos that slander and defame Falun Gong. The practitioners' revered Teacher's name is written on a stool and then practitioners are forced to sit on it. False statements against Dafa and Master are written, and then several people force practitioners to fingerprint the document. Before eating, practitioners are forced to sing. Otherwise, they are punished. They force practitioners to study the so-called "three lessons" and do homework. If they refuse, they will be punished even more. Letters are difficult to send out. Every day, all practitioners have to sit on a small stool and are not allowed to speak. The persecutors act as a "watchdog," following practitioners like a shadow only 50 centimeters away. They constantly monitor practitioners closely while they are eating, sleeping, going to the restroom and walking.
Dafa Practitioners Who Step Forward to Validate Dafa Are Persecuted in Xinhua Forced Labor Camp
Xinhua Forced Labor Camp is very afraid of Dafa practitioners standing up to validate Dafa. The authorities there use all kinds of evil methods to deal with Dafa practitioners who have stepped forward to validate Dafa.
Mr. Luo Qingsheng, over 50 years old, was very firm in his practice of Dafa. In 2004, he was illegally arrested and sent to the forced labor camp. During this period of time, Mr. Luo shouted certain phrases to validate Dafa many times. Every time he shouted a phrase, he was grabbed and pressed to the ground, beaten, pinched, and kicked. He was tied with rope, handcuffed, and forced to wear a helmet many times.
Mr. Luo was isolated for a long time and his forced labor term was repeatedly extended. At present Mr. Luo still is imprisoned in Xinhua Forced Labor Camp. The leaders of the No. 2 Team in the No. 6 Division are He Yuan, Du Shuhong, and Zhang Xiaogang. Insiders are asked to please provide the telephone numbers of these leaders.
The So-called Management System to Implement the Persecution
Xinhua Forced Labor Camp also frequently uses a sinister and ruthless method to persecute Dafa practitioners. All personnel teams in the labor camp are managed. Besides the civilian management association and team leaders, there is a management system composed of designated detainees who are assigned to monitor practitioners' activities. Practitioners always have to report to them and get permission before they can go from one place to another
When practitioners enter and exit their team room, the classroom, or their prison cell, they must report to the designated detainees and get permission.
Dafa practitioners do not acknowledge themselves as detainees. The team requires everyone to report to the designated detainees if they want to use the restroom. In this verbal report, practitioners have to admit that they are detainees. If practitioners do not follow their requirement for the report, they are not allowed to go to the restroom. They often use this kind of cruel method to suppress Dafa practitioners. In 2005, there was a Dafa practitioner who had no choice but to defecate in his pants. When he found the team chief to discuss it, they said that there were too many people in the team. He was told that if they don't require detainees to report before doing things, it would be difficult for them to manage so many people.
Moreover, the forced labor camp also forces Dafa practitioners to wear the labor camp uniform, do the work of re-education, sing the songs of re-education, recite the labor camp's rules, and so on. If Dafa practitioners do not cooperate with them, they will make them face the wall for a long time, not allow them to sleep, extend the labor camp term, and subject them to other methods of abuse.
