In Dongfeng Detention Center, Daqing, Heilongjian Province, Falun Dafa practitioner Jiang Zilan (pseudonym) received inhumane abuse. This almost caused her to have a mental breakdown. It is Falun Dafa that gave her confidence, strength, and courage to face life and recover from the frustration and depression caused by this incident. Recently, with grief she told me the story.

Jiang Zilan, female, 39 years old, is a factory worker from Daqing City. In the beginning of May 2000, she was arrested and put into custody in Dongfeng Detention Center because of "gathering in a group" when she and other practitioners met.

On May 11, 2000, she and 16 other illegally jailed Dafa practitioners realized at the same time: "Practicing Falun Dafa is not wrong and our Teacher is without fault. We met to talk about how to upgrade our moral values and to become the best people in the world; this is not wrong and absolutely not a crime." Thus they started a hunger strike to protest the illegal detention.

On May 12, two male police guards dragged Jiang to the guard office without giving her a reason, pushed her over, and held her arms to the ground. A female police guard with gloves and two other male guards in the room gave her a bad look. The latter two male guards held her bare feet on floor. The female guard stripped all her clothes except her underwear. The female guard kept her underwear open with one hand and stroked her private parts with the other hand.

Jiang was shocked and couldn't think. Only her basic instinct made her cry out: "Help! Help!!!" She yelled at the female guard: "Are you still a woman? Are you still a human being? Do you have a sense of shame?" Later she was dragged back to prison without any clothes on her upper body.

After Jiang described the abuse, she said, "I tried to forget this completely. I really dare not even recall it because I was frustrated and had no courage to face life. If I were not a Falun Dafa practitioner, I would have died."

The reason we reveal this abuse to the world is to tell all kind-hearted people in China and the world how President Jiang Zemin protects evil and persecutes good. This torture was issued to a Falun Dafa practitioner, but it could happen to anyone's family members. If we tolerate these treatments and do not voice our concerns, we are encouraging evil to become even more vicious and rampant.

Everyone, wake up! To tolerate evil is to assist it.
