Zhangshi Reform School in Shenyang, Liaoning Province Is a Primary Base for Persecuting Falun Dafa Disciples
(Clearwisdom.net) Since July 20, 1999 when Jiang's regime began persecuting Falun Gong, the Zhangshi Reform School, which was really a forced labor camp, became a concentration camp for persecuting Falun Dafa disciples. Particularly so after the 5th brigade was assigned to only persecute Falun Gong practitioners on November 13, 2000, and all male Falun Gong practitioners being illegally detained in different forced labor camps in Shenyang were brought, against their will, to the Zhangshi Reform School to be brainwashed and persecuted.
Following the lead of the Vice Rector Diankun Chen, in collaboration with partners from the administration: Director Cai Li, Brigade teachers Yi Zhang (who was promoted to Vice Rector) and Baishun Song, Brigade Head Xiangyu Zhou, Vice Brigade Head Wei Chen and Head Shi, they forced more than 1000 Falun Dafa practitioners to suffer through three years of brainwashing and brutal torture, using all manner of deception at their disposal. Faced with the fact that they could not sway determined Dafa practitioners, they resorted to using individuals ((Fushun) Shuzhen Yuan, Wei Su, Ning Ding, Yukun Ding, (Shenyang) Lijun Su) who had betrayed Dafa, as tools to trick practitioners with self-deceiving lies, trying to shake practitioners' volition.
The police severely tortured Dafa practitioners who firmly believed in Truth-Compassion-Tolerance. In the beginning, practitioners were only given a corn bun and some small pickles for each meal. An gang of at least ten people surrounded each practitioner daily. One practitioner named Jiang Du, who had graduated from a university with a major in Electronic Instrumentation, was tortured until both his feet were severely swollen. He could not wear his shoes and had to be helped up to go to the washroom. He and Jinmin Wang did refused to read any materials that defamed Dafa, and as a result they were threatened and beaten by the police and instructors.
Instructor Yi Zhang and Brigade Head Baishun Song often deprived Falun Dafa disciples of sleeping by taking turns to conduct one-on-one interrogations with practitioners every two hours all through the night. As soon as the practitioners resisted such interrogations causing them to become useless, they forced practitioners to lean against the wall with their foreheads touching. Nianfu Wang was forced to stand in a washroom, bent at a 90-degree angle with both arms spread out like the wings of a plane. Chunli Chen was denied sleep for four days and nights; when he was forced to stand against the wall with his forehead touching and bearing all the weight, he passed out on the floor. Mingjun Zhao was beaten with a electric baton by a room full of police. Baishun Song cruelly tortured Chunyi Wang by shocking his mouth with an electric baton. Hongcai Luo from the Northeastern University was forcefully held on the ground by the collaborators [Former Falun Gong practitioners who have gone astray due to brainwashing and torture] and beaten up. Hongcai screamed due to the pain of torture. His face was swollen beyond recognition. Diankun Cheng, an evil police chief, sent all Dafa practitioners to other "Education Brigades" for strict monitoring. The sole purpose was so that the practitioners would be even more cruelly and inhumanly tortured. Instructors, who were scheming with police, overwhelmed Feizhou Wang from Liaoning University during his strict monitoring. The instructors were promised reduced sentences if they persecuted Falun Gong practitioners. Even more, the police from this reform school kept Master's photo on the floor during the 4 days of reserved for visits from relatives each month in 2001. The purpose was to refuse visitation rights if the practitioner did not stomp on the photo, thus insulting Dafa and Master. This sin was then copied and repeated by forced labor camps such as such as Masanjia and Longshan.
The hotel of the reform school became a concentrated place for persecuting Falun Dafa disciples in 2001. Led by the Brigade Head, Shi, they used "collaborators" to attempt to brainwash Dafa practitioners and force them to renounce their belief by forming a so-called "assistance and instruction group". They tried to brainwash more than 100 Falun Dafa practitioners, especially Xiu Chen, a computer engineer at the Shenyang Agriculture Bank. Xiu Chen went to appeal in Beijing and did not give up his practice when he was sent to a labour camp in 1999. Afterwards his wife divorced him and he was dismissed from his work place. After he gave up his practice against his will, the Shenyang Judicatory and Zhangshi Reform School attempted to gain some credit and used him as a model. At the ceremony where he and his wife remarried, where there were a lot of company leaders in attendance at the City Hall, the other supervisor covered the fees. CCTV [Jiang's official mouthpiece] was also invited, and this occasion was used as propaganda and was rebroadcast many times on that television channel. After he returned home, Xiu Chen had deep regrets for giving up his beliefs under duress. He declared solemnly on the Minghui website (See Solemn Declarations: http://www.clearwisdom.net/emh/66/) and again continued his steps during the Fa-rectification. He was arrested while making truth-clarification materials and persecuted by the authorities. It was said that he was given a prison sentence.
Based on what many who know the truth have said, the vast sums of public funds that Jiang's criminal regime has spent on the persecution of Falun Dafa has been similar to what any country would spend in the time of war. However, the reality is that their goal of completely eradicating Falun Dafa and the principles of Truth, Compassion, Forbearance from the hearts of the people have all been in vain.
