Ding Haiqing's Suffering at Heizuizi Women's Forced Labor Camp in Changchun City
(Clearwisdom.net) Falun Dafa practitioner Ding Haiqing of Yanbian District, Jilin Province has suffered persecution many times for her belief in Falun Gong. She is currently detained at the Heizuizi Women's Forced Labor Camp in Changchun City.
Ms. Ding Haiqing was employed at the Wangqing Tianqiaoling Forestry Bureau in Yanbian District, Jilin Province. She was born in 1965. Before she practiced Falun Dafa, she suffered from many illnesses and she felt that living in this condition was worse than dying. Her health condition made her irritable and bad-tempered. She did not get along with her mother-in-law at all.
She began to practice Falun Dafa in 1997. Her many illnesses were cured and she became a different person. She behaved according to the principles "Truthfulness, Compassion, Forbearance," and her relationship with her mother-in-law became harmonious. Her mother-in-law told everyone that "Falun Gong is good. If my daughter-in-law had not learned Falun Gong, we would not be on speaking terms." Her colleagues and neighbors also saw the tremendous changes in her after she practiced Falun Gong.
On July 20, 1999, Jiang Zemin began the brutal persecution of Falun Gong. Ding Haiqing began to tell people the facts and expose the persecution of Falun Dafa. She went to Beijing to appeal at the end of 2000. She planned to appeal at the Office of Appeals of the Beijing State Council, but was arrested before she arrived there. Later, staff from the Tianqiaoling Forestry Public Security Bureau and 610 Office took her back from Beijing. Within a few days, she was sentenced to one year of forced labor, to be served at the Heizuizi Women's Forced Labor Camp in Jilin Province. She was sentenced on fabricated charges. She had to leave a young son and husband at home, who had a difficult time without her.
Without delay, the director of the public security bureau Jiang Zhian, political protection section chief Li Yanchun, bureau party committee assistant secretary, politics and judiciary committee secretary, 610 Office chief Zhang Taizhi and many others began to arrest and persecute practitioners. Ding Haiqing was detained at the detention center for half a month. This should have been counted towards her forced labor term, but the corrupt authorities did not count it. After experiencing one year of mental and physical torture in the labor camp, she returned home in January 2002.
Ding Haiqing clarified the truth and exposed the persecution to everyone she met. Therefore, the local evildoers used every opportunity to persecute her. In July 2003, under the order of Jiang Zhian, director of the public security bureau Li Yanchun, political protection section chief Li Yanchun (Li had been arresting and persecuting Falun Dafa practitioners since July 20, 1999. He took dozens of people to forced labor camps and continued to arrest practitioners) and a group of police arrested Ding Haiqing, and went to her home which they ransacked. Because Ding Haiqing firmly refused to cooperate and loudly exposed the persecution to passersby, over ten police officers beat and kicked her brutally. Many people witnessed the police's atrocities. Later Ding Haiqing escaped with righteous thoughts, and became homeless and destitute to avoid being persecuted.
This did not stop Ding Haiqing from validating Dafa and clarifying the truth. She often spent the entire night outside, all alone. Her feet became tired and often she had no food. The temperature in the winter of northern China sometimes was 20o or 30o below. Her hands and ears were frozen and became very swollen. She slept in the woods of a mountain area during summer and suffered bug bites at night. She visited many villages. Countless kind people warned her to be more careful. Many people with predestined relationships heard about Dafa from her, and many who had given up the practice because of the persecution returned to Dafa with her help.
On the night of December 28, 2004, when Ding Haiqing was posting up a sign that read "Falun Dafa is good" in a residential building of Tianqiaoling, she was discovered and taken to the No. 2 Local Police Station. Under the orders of Li Yanchun, political protection section chief, manager Hao Weiliang, deputy director Jiang Tao, policeman Li Wendong and six others inhumanly tortured Ding Haiqing. Two policemen grabbed her head, sat on her and beat her cruelly. Ding Haiqing nearly lost her sight. Her clothing was torn in many places from the torture. They cuffed her hands behind the chair and tied her to the back of the chair. Policemen hit her back with iron clubs, which were wrapped with cloth so as to cause pain without leaving a mark. The pain was excruciating.
When the police made her sign a document, she wrote "Falun Dafa is good." This resulted in more brutal beating. The police kicked her back fiercely. They did not give her food and force-fed her with mustard oil. After she fainted, the police poured cold water on her (in winter). One policeman even suggested to strip her naked and put her outside, so she would freeze. On the night of 29th, when the police took Ding Haiqing to the detention center, her body was swollen and she was covered with blood. Even the guards in the detention center found it too horrible to look at her. The police feared that her wounds would be seen by others. They detained her at the detention center for about 20 days, until the wounds started to heal. Then they took her to Heizuizi Women's Forced Labor Camp in Changchun City, where she was detained for three years. She was detained at Brigade No. 7.
The notorious Heizuizi Women Forced Labor Camp in Changchun City is a hell on earth, and Brigade No. 7 is the most evil place in the labor camp.
Brigade No. 7 was formed at the end of 2000. They transferred the most vicious guards from other brigades to Brigade No. 7. Head Liu Hu forced all Falun Gong practitioners to work long hours doing slave labor, so that he would make a lot of money. If practitioners could not finish the task, they were beaten and cursed at. They treated practitioners as though they were not human beings.
Brigade head Hou Zhihong is one of the worst. He often tortured steadfast Falun Dafa practitioners, using many torture methods.
Clerk Li Man appears to be kind, but is actually very cruel toward steadfast practitioners. Most other police officers are cruel also and aim to break the steadfast practitioners.
Police officers of the Brigade No. 7 did not allow practitioners to close the restroom door in the cold winter. They claimed that this was the law of the labor camp. Practitioners' hands and feet were frozen and they had difficulty working. They were not allowed to go to the restroom without asking permission, which was not granted when the guards were in a bad mood. Some people just held it in and suffered, while some could not hold it and urinated in their pants. The guards tormented these kind people.
After Ding Haiqing arrived at brigade No. 7, because she firmly refused to "transform", so she also suffered torture.
Hou Zhihong used all kinds of cruel tactics to make Ding Haiqing "transform," but to no avail. Ding Haiqing remained firm in her belief in Dafa. Therefore, Hou Zhihong beat her cruelly. The tortures she suffered included the "flying the airplane" and touching the head to the feet. When she could not reach that position, the guards kicked her, tortured her with electric batons, stabbed her with nails, and hit her hands against the windowsill, injuring her hands. The guards also bought paper and pens with her money. They then made her write "Dafa is good" and fill an entire book every day. She also suffered sleep deprivation if she did not finish what she was told to write. They forced her to stand for 17 hours (from 7 a.m. to midnight) daily without moving.
One morning, Ding Haiqing loudly shouted "Falun Dafa is good" on the way to cafeteria Therefore, several guards beat and kicked her, and then took her back to the cell, where they tied her on the "dead person's bed" for a week. When she was untied, she was emaciated and had become disfigured. Her cell mates could not recognize her. Because of the torture, she became partially paralyzed. Yet, she was still forced to work. When she did not work, her term was extended. Therefore, her term was extended for over a month.
However, Ding Haiqing remained steadfast and righteous. The guards at the forced labor continued to torture her mentally and physically even more cruelly. Her family came to see her several times, but only those who were willing to help "transform" her were allowed to see her. During meetings with her family members, the brigade chief and guards monitored her closely. Within three months, Ding Haiqing completely changed. She used to weigh over 154 lbs. Now she is extremely emaciated. Her eyes are red and swollen. She suffers pain in her chest, heart, lungs and other places on her body. She is critically ill. The guards told her family that because she did not behave well, they would extend her term and take her to a prison.
We call on the international community and all kind-hearted people to do all in their power to rescue Ding Haiqing and all persecuted Falun Dafa practitioners in China's forced labor camps, prisons and detention centers.
