(Clearwisdom.net) The Chinese Communist Party (CCP) has been cruelly persecuting Falun Gong for almost 10 years. Changning Detention Center in Shanghai has detained numerous Falun Gong practitioners and continues to cruelly persecute them. They hung up an older female practitioner, Fan Guoping, who is in her 60s, in a solitary confinement room. She was hung up in the air by cuffs on all her limbs for many days. In order to protest the persecution, she went on a hunger strike. In response to this, the police force-fed her with thick rubber feeding tubes. As the tubes were too thick and could not be inserted into her stomach, the guard Wu Libin clasped his hands around her neck and viciously choked her so that she could not breathe.

Other accounts include the following. Zhou Bin, a resident of Changning District, withstood inhumane torture when he was detained at the detention center. Zhou Bin has since been sentenced to 12 years of imprisonment by the CCP. He is currently incarcerated and persecuted at Tilanqiao Prison in Shanghai. Jiang Bin, a university graduate from the finance department, was also incarcerated at the detention center. After that he was sentenced to 5 years of imprisonment and sent to Tilanqiao Prison in Shanghai. Ma Guobiao and his mother Jin Runfang were incarcerated several times. After being incarcerated here they were sent to a forced labor camp to be further detained. Not long ago, there was an aged Falun Gong practitioner, Ms. Zhou Yuntian, at this detention center. She was tortured till she died. Her son is also incarcerated there.

During the early summer in 2008, practitioner Fan Guoping, who is in her 60s, was arrested and detained at Changning District Detention Center. She went on a hunger strike to protest the persecution. When she first went into the detention center, she was tortured by being deprived of sleep for three days and nights. She was made to sit in a chair and was interrogated. Rough handling during force-feeding caused her nose to bleed for the whole night. Later the female detention center chief, Wu Libin, (in her 30s) instigated the guards to lock her up in a solitary cell and put her in handcuffs for the whole day. Both her legs were cuffed to metal railings, and both her arms were handcuffed behind her back. When she wanted to use the bathroom, they did not put her down. They made the prison use a basin to catch her urine and feces. As her legs were tied up higher than the rest of her body, it made passing urine and moving bowels very messy and painful. Furthermore the weather is hot and the insects bit her everyday. The skin on her body was in a bad state.

Wu Libin wanted to force Fan Guoping to give up her hunger strike; thus she used a thick rubber feeding tube to force-feed Fan Guoping in a manner meant to torture her and increase her pain. As the rubber tube was too thick and could not be inserted into the stomach, Wu Libin personally used her own hands to choke Fan Guoping. After being force-fed in this way for over 10 days, the older practitioner did not sign the document to give up her belief in Falun Gong. Thus Wu Libin gave orders not to let Fan Guoping go to the washroom, not to let her wash up, and not to let her touch a bit of water. During the hot weather, the guards insulted her in front of the prisoners and said that their intention was to let her stink. At the same time, they involved the criminal inmates and forbade everyone from buying any food and daily necessities. If they wanted to do so, they had to verbally abuse and attack Fan Guoping, as an exchange for this.

Fan Guoping, who has been handcuffed and tortured for over one month has persisted in her hunger strike to protest the persecution. Wu Libin has locked her up in the solitary confinement room again.
