My Experiences at Gaomi Detention Center and Wangcun Forced Labor Camp
(Clearwisdom.net) I was imprisoned a second time at the Wangcun Forced Labor Camp from October 2004 to December 18, 2006. My sentence was extended for two months. The following are my personal experiences, followed by what I witnessed during this period of time.
I am from Kangzhuang Township of Gaomi City in Shandong Province. Policemen Hu, Gao Zhengqiang, Yu Jihai and others stopped me on the street and arrested me without any warrant in October 2004. They took me to Gaomi Detention Center, where I refused to answer any questions. They then grabbed me by the feet and dragged me to a detention cell.
There was also another Falun Gong practitioner from Kangzhuang Township at the detention center. Her name was Zhang Ling. She was about 36 years old, and had been sentenced to a four-year term. Everyone called a man with the surname of Tan "the director" there, but he was in fact not the director. His eyes turned red when he beat people. He used all sorts of torture methods on Zhang Ling. No one can sleep at the detention center when Tan is on duty. The more Zhang Ling screamed, the more vicious he became. He used the iron chair, handcuffs and foot shackles. He cuffed Ms. Zhang's hands and feet to an iron cage for long periods of time, and sometimes he beat her with brooms. There was another guard who poured water on Ms. Zhang's body.
I was unjustly detained at Gaomi Detention Center for 28 days. Four police officers, one of whom was called Yu Jihai, then took me to Wangcun Forced Labor Camp. I refused to cooperate during the physical exam, and refused to give a urine sample. I took off my handcuffs to throw them in the toilet. Yu Jihai caught me and took the cuffs. He ordered others to get a tube and take a urine sample by force. I firmly opposed them and their attempt failed. At the time, my face was so swollen from bruises that I could not even see. The forced labor camp authorities did not want to accept me. Yu Jihai and the other police officers had to bribe them to take me.
There was a collaborator working with the guards to persecute Falun Gong practitioners. She reported me to the prison guard captain for speaking out against the persecution. They dragged me outside and I did not get any sleep that night. I was subjected to torture outside for an entire month during August 2005.
I was put into Brigade No. 4 at Wangcun Forced Labor Camp. The brigade captain was Ms. Wang Huiying. The assistant captains were Sun Hua and Li. Guards had surnames of Li, Yin, Sun and Wang. Yin is currently the captain there.
This was the situation before I was released on December 18, 2006. The guards tried to make us sing a song called, "There Is No New China Without the Chinese Communist Party (CCP)." Hardly anyone sang and guard Yin was furious. One day a group of practitioners declared their statements renouncing Falun Gong, made under duress, null and void. The next day more practitioners declared their renunciations void. The day after, even the person who collaborated with the guards, declared her renunciation void. The guards had no way to stop it. Even during a meeting of the entire labor camp, the singing was as pathetic as a mosquito buzzing.
One morning, captain Wang Huiying said, "There was a small black bird on the bus [used by the guards]. The driver almost drove the bus into the water." I heard that captain Wang Huiying has had surgery. The assistant captain Sun Hai has often been hospitalized. Guard Li has been placed on the evildoer's list, and she had to have leg surgery. Li's attitude had improved a lot as a result of practitioners exposing the persecution and clarifying the truth by the time I left.
Ms. Yan Jinqiu was taken for force-feeding many times while I was at the labor camp. Yan Jinqiu often shouted "Falun Dafa is good" as they took her away for force-feeding. When it was done, the guards dragged her back, with her head hanging and a tube dangling. Another practitioner, Ms. Yang Wenjie, was put in solitary confinement because she refused to be "transformed." I don't know how she is doing now. I saw more than a dozen practitioners get out of the labor camp using righteous thoughts and righteous actions. For example, practitioner Ms. Liu Huifang from Changyi had no fear. She called out "Falun Dafa is good!" The guards twisted her arms and took her outside. They taped her mouth and tortured her by pulling her arms backwards. The guards finally stopped, because she would not stop shouting the phrase. She wrote to the director of the labor camp at night to tell him how she was being persecuted. She wrote over a dozen letters and received no reply. Later, she demanded to know why she had received no response. She told the guards they were breaking the law, when they were supposed to enforce the law. The guards were speechless. After a few months, Liu Huifang was released. Practitioner Li Ping firmly resisted the persecution and was also released early.
Around October 2005, the labor camp arranged physical examinations for all Falun Gong practitioners. They took blood samples from every practitioner and stored them in a refrigerator. During my incarceration, I was forced to work excessively and subjected to endless mental torture. It was horrifying beyond words and one day felt like a year. I lost over 30 lbs. in two years. The labor camps in China are evil dens for persecuting good people.
