A woman who remained steadfast in her practice and beliefs endured a series of brutal tortures. Police tied her up and suspended her off the ground for three days. Doctors injected her with poison. Her body weight fell from 195 pounds to 78 pounds. Her non-practitioner husband was not spared either. The police poured boiling water on him during interrogation. The following is a first-hand account of what this Falun Dafa practitioner experienced.

I am a Dafa practitioner from Suihua, and learned Falun Dafa in 1995. My body and mind benefited from the practice in ways that cannot be expressed in words. After Jiang's regime started the persecution of Falun Gong, I began to clarify the truth and expose the lies. On March 8, 2001, my fellow practitioners and I took train from Dalian to Jiamusi. One practitioner read Dafa books on the train. After being discovered by police, all of us were arrested.

The next day, the train arrived in Harbin Rail Station. Police handed us to Harbin Rail Station Police and the Police Station sent us to Harbin City 610 Office. The head of the 610 Office, Tan Yuansong, searched me and stole 870 yuan and two calling cards. When he asked any questions, I did not say anything. Tan Yuansong called on about eight police officers. They used rope the thickness of a small finger to tie up both my arms and ordered me to stand on a stool and hung me up. Then they kicked out the stool and I was hanging one meter off the ground. I weigh 195 lb. My belt broke. I hung there for three days and two nights. My arms became black and blue and there was swelling that looked like grains of rice on the skin. At this time, fellow practitioners told the police my name.

On March 16, my hometown local police station escorted me back and placed me in detention. They took my home from me. At that time I was already disabled and could not take care of myself. At 4:00 p.m. on March 23, I lost consciousness, and they had to release me. The police always harassed me, so I was forced to become homeless.

On April 16, 2002, because my husband (who is not a Dafa practitioner) did business in Beijing, we rented a house in Fengtai District. At around 7:00 to 8:00 p.m. on April 20, Fengtai District Public Security Sub-bureau arrested my husband and me. When they asked my husband what I did in Beijing, my husband did not say anything, thus they beat me to the point of losing consciousness three times and poured boiling water on my husband's body. His right leg was beaten and broken. The scars are still on my husband's body and he limped when he walked.

At midnight on April 24, 2004, the police took me to the Beijing Training Center of Ruling by Law and forced me to be "transformed." Twelve people in total worked in turns and did not allow me to sleep. Finally I told them that, "you cannot transform me."

Later, police officer Xiao Heizi from the seventh section of Harbin City National Security led a team to Beijing and brought me back to Harbin City. Right after I got off the train gate, they used black clothing to cover my head and imprisoned me in the Harbin First Lockup. When I arrived there, police officers Liu Wei, Li Jiman, and Zhang Shuqin (taken from the criminal police first and second teams by the seventh section) began to torture me. They beat me with a one-inch thick plastic pipe until I lost consciousness. They then poured water on me to awaken me, and beat me again. Even today, I still have scars left on my body. Liu Wei illegally confiscated my 1,010 yuan in cash, my backpack and many clothes.

Because I was not "transformed," in June 2002 I was sent to the hospital at Wanjia Forced Labor Camp to be further persecuted. I do not remember the name of the chief at the hospital, who pushed me down and beat me. The head of nurses, surnamed Wang, (around 50 years old) was very evil and gave me three poisonous shots. After the injections, I slept several days and did not remember anything. I couldn't speak.

One day a male Dafa practitioner was force-fed and died from the brutality. On the second day they told his family member that he died of tuberculosis. When they force-fed me the next day, they said they would force-feed me to death like him.

On August 7, 2002, they sent me to the hospital at Harbin City Public Security to continue the persecution. Director Li from the Internal Medicine Department, head of nurses Gao Shufang, nurses Xu Jing and Zhang Yuanyuan, and Cong Damin from the first section at National Security, handcuffed my hands and tied me to the death bed. They trampled me. Four and a half months of persecution caused my body weight to fall from 195 pounds to 78 pounds, and my blood pressure was only 55 over 35. By December 20, 2002, under Master's strengthening, I was out of danger with righteous thoughts.
