Falun Dafa Practitioners Severely Persecuted at Masanjia Forced Labor Camp
(Clearwisdom.net) The guards at Masanjia Forced Labor Camp in Liaoning Province are notoriously cruel to Falun Dafa practitioners. Female guards who participated in the maltreatment of practitioners include Wang Yanping, Huang Haiyan, Zhang Xiurong, Dong Bin, Wang Xiaofeng, Zhang Jun, and Zhang Zhuohui. Male guards include Zhang Liang, Peng Tao, Liu Yong, Li Jun and a person whose last name is Fan.
Because she refused to renounce Falun Gong, practitioner Ms. Jia Yahui from Shenyang City was blindfolded and then shocked with electric batons. The guards tried to brutally force her to put her fingerprint on a document renouncing Falun Gong. Another time, when Ms. Jia shouted "Falun Dafa is wonderful!" they hung her up by her handcuffed wrists and cruelly tortured her.
Another practitioner, who also did not cooperate with the evil, is Ms. Zhang Min, age 49. She was detained in the Strict Monitoring Team in August 2008. One morning in September 2008, she was tortured to the point that she was unable to walk, only because she shouted, "Falun Dafa is wonderful!" Because she refused to sign a form renouncing Dafa, she was beaten until her face and entire body was badly bruised and swollen.
When practitioner Ms. Li Hong was trying to clarify the facts to guard Liu Yong, he didn't listen to her, and instead shocked her with electric batons. Another time, when Ms. Li Hong spoke out a little bit, she was slapped on the face by guard Zhang Xiurong. This guard later called Ms. Li into her office, where several other guards were waiting, and started torturing her with electric batons. They also hit her on her head while Ms. Li was shouting "Falun Dafa is wonderful." She became bedridden as a result of the torture.
Practitioner Ms. Sheng Lianying, from Dalian City, is 53 years old. She went on a hunger strike to protest the maltreatment at Masanjia. Consequently, the guards forcibly inserted an object into her mouth to hold it open, and left it for 24 hours. In August 2007, while Ms. Sheng was on a strike and refused to cooperate with any demands from the camp authorities, she was locked in a dark room for ten days. While in solitary confinement, she was not allowed to wash and her feet became extremely swollen. During her detention, guards Liu Yong and Zhang Zhuohui shocked her with two electric batons simultaneously. Ms. Sheng has started a hunger strike in protest, and has been subjected to daily abuses. She currently weighs only 90 pounds.
Practitioner Ms. Zhang Lianying from Beijing was taken to Masanjia Forced Labor Camp and put in detention during the Beijing Olympics. When she got out of the police car, she shouted right away, "Falun Dafa is wonderful!" Immediately, guards Zhang Jun and Zhang Zhuohui slapped her face to the point of bleeding. Ms. Zhang began a hunger strike the following day, and when the guards couldn't open her mouth to force-feed her, they used a big iron spoon and chopped at her mouth, but they still couldn't force her to open her mouth. They then handcuffed her hands and feet, and locked her in a very humid room full of mosquitoes and other insects. Ms. Zhang has been resisting her maltreatment by not cooperating with the camp's unreasonable demands. As a result, she has been shocked with electric batons, hung up by her handcuffs, and deprived of using the bathroom for four days. The guards have exhausted their torture methods.
Ms. Liu Guifang from Dandong City had been hung up for five days, because she resisted the maltreatment. Her mouth was severely swollen after a guard, whose last name is Fan, beat her face. These bruises didn't disappear until quite some time later.
