(Clearwisdom.net) He Qiang, male, was formerly the head of Jiamusi Forced Labor Camp’s women's brigade, but now he is the section head of the administration section of Jiamusi Forced Labor Camp. Since he was first transferred to the women’s brigade in 2001, he has stayed in the forefront of the persecution of Falun Dafa practitioners. He Qiang was personally involved in and oversaw the persecution of the practitioners many times. He had directly or indirectly caused the deaths of a dozen practitioners, in addition to paralyzing many more practitioners. In the following document I will document a few examples of He’s crimes, so as to raise awareness among the people in my hometown. The following information shows how "law enforcement" officers knowingly violated the law and persecuted innocent people.

In June and July 2001, the authorities at the Women’s Brigade of the Jiamusi Forced Labor Camp launched a more intense persecution of Falun Dafa practitioners. They forced practitioners to watch video recordings that slandered Falun Dafa and its founder. The practitioners knew that the video was made up, and they firmly rejected it. Every morning, He Qiang led a group of guards to grab and push practitioners around to force them to the hallway where the video was played. After four practitioners openly declared that they would not watch the video, He Qiang ordered his subordinates to take them to the first floor and handcuff them to the "Dead Man’s Bed". The pain caused by such brutal torture is excruciating. Practitioner Ms. Liu Xiufang was handcuffed for seven days, and practitioners Men Xiaohua, Liang Li, and Li Ping for 18 days. To protest the persecution, these practitioners held hunger strikes. As a result of the torture, practitioner Men Xiahua suffered severe swelling all over her body, with her eyes bulging out. While she was holding a hunger strike, the guards force-fed her and refused to take off her handcuffs even when she needed to go to the toilet.

In the fall of 2001, a poster slandering Falun Dafa and its founder was hanging on the wall of the Women’s Brigade hallway. For the sake of the people who hung up the poster and of the labor camp authorities, the practitioners requested the brigade to take it down. They told the guards that slandering Dafa and its founder is not good for them, but the guards did not listen at all. Practitioner Liu Xiufang first grabbed the poster and together, the practitioners managed to take it down. After getting a report of the incident, He Qiang ordered the guards to force the practitioners downstairs. In the process, he slapped practitioner Yu Chunmei repeatedly. As soon as everyone was in the compound, He Qiang jumped on practitioner Liu Xiufang and struck her face with all his strength. Practitioner Liu lost consciousness immediately. Later they illegally extended practitioner Liu’s term for three more months. On the save evening, He Qiang, together with a few other guards, went to Liu’s prison cell. Seeing that Ms. Qi Shuyan was sitting on the bed, He Qiang jumped on her and slapped her face in a frenzy. After the beating, Qi’s face swelled up and she lost her hearing in one ear.

At the beginning of November 2002, He Qiang went to attend a provincial meeting on new ways to persecute Falun Dafa practitioners. As soon as he returned, he shouted, "Political power grows out of a barrel of gun." (A slogan from Mao Zedong, the former dictator of China) Soon after, he launched another round of even more crazed persecution of practitioners. He ordered the guards to gather all women practitioners in a conference room on the 3rd floor. From 5 a.m. to 11 p.m. everyday, he forced each practitioner to sit and hold the same posture on a 20-30 centimeter high stool that was placed on a block of 50-60 centimeters long. The practitioners were forced to lay their hands on their knees, facing forward, to watch a videotape that slandered Falun Dafa and its founder. Whoever moved even a tiny bit would be beaten with wooden clubs, shocked with electric batons, and handcuffed. In this way they tortured the practitioners until 11 p.m. Anybody who blinked a little would be punished and forced to continue to sit on the tiny stool until 1 am. In addition, they forced practitioners to read the slanderous materials. Anyone who refused to read would be beaten until she was badly injured. As a result of the beatings, practitioners Kang Aimin, Zhang Shufang, and Feng Guifen became lame. Practitioner Lu Jing’s arm was broken. Every day, a few practitioners were tortured with "Big Hang-Up" at the end of the two corridors on the second floor. Many practitioners have been injured or disabled by the "Big Hang-Up" torture. At every moment practitioners were being tormented and living on the verge of death. All of these were directly overseen and systematically orchestrated by He Qiang.

In February 2003, He Qiang once again called a meeting, ordering the guards to force practitioners to write the "five statements" to give up Falun Gong. The Big Hang-Up was the torture used for any practitioner who refused to follow the order. As a result of the torture, practitioner Pu Yanchun lost feeling in both of her arms. She is now unable to do the most basic daily activities.

In June 2003, since practitioner Lu Jing refused to follow the instruction of the forced labor camp authorities to write the "five statements", guard Li Xiujin tortured her. The next day, He Qiang, followed by a few other guards, came to brutally beat Ms. Lu with leather shoes and belts. Then, once again, they tortured her with the Big Hang-Up. Additionally the guards handcuffed practitioner Ma Xiaohua continuously for 25 days on a wooden panel and forced her to maintain that posture. The guards also tortured another practitioner, Fei Jinrong, with the Big Hang-Up while guard Yu Wenbin kicked her arms and stopped her from going to the bathroom or sleeping.

The accounts of persecution I described here are just the tip of the iceberg of what guard He Qiang has been personally involved in and overseen. In the past seven years, He Qiang has committed countless crimes against Falun Dafa practitioners and many other good people. Today more and more people are beginning to understand the truth about Falun Dafa. Some who were once involved in the persecution have given up their position and stopped committing those crimes. As Falun Dafa practitioners, we cultivate "Truthfulness, Compassion, Forbearance" and we are kind to every sentient being. We do not have hatred even towards those who committed bad deeds under the influence of the CCP’s false propaganda. While we sincerely hope that every person has a great future, He Qiang has to make up his own mind and choose his own path.
