Currently, more than 20 practitioners have been illegally detained in Group 2 of the Shijiazhuang City Labor Camp. This is a male group with 5 teams in it. As a result of the brutal persecution in this camp, Song Yong was forcibly "reformed" and practitioner Tao Hongsheng, a staff member in the Security Division of Hebei Province, died after just 6 months of detention. Huang Wei was transferred from Team 3 to Team 4. Wang Hongbin is in Team 4, while Zhang Haibin, a high school student, is in Team 2. Liu Ruiheng, the former assistant at the Zanhuang County practicing site, is detained in Team 1. Forced to work continuously for over 10 hours every day, they can only stop to eat and sleep. No family members may visit, and they are not allowed to practice Falun Gong exercises.
Criminals monitor the Falun Gong practitioners closely, because if any practitioner does the exercises, goods belonging to the criminals will be confiscated. The practitioners started a hunger strike to protest the inhuman treatment and illegal detention. The extremely vicious police in the labor camp said, "Whoever practices Falun Gong is a counter-revolutionary [considered an enemy of the country in communist China /translator] and must be detained in the camp." They told the practitioners, "Don't ever plan to leave here, even when you are done with your detention term, unless you are 'reformed'. This is the command from higher authorities!" A few cops with good hearts advised the practitioners, "We know you are all good people and you are innocent. But it is no use to talk to lawyers or appeal to higher courts. The "boss" [Jiang Zemin and his associates/ translator] will not let you out if you are not 'reformed'. Give us your written promise [promise not to practice Falun Gong/ translator]. Then you will be able to get out of here and continue to practice Falun Gong elsewhere."
