[Harbin City, Heilongjiang Province] Practitioners Tortured in the Interrogation Room of the Police Department
The Interrogation Room of the Harbin Police Department is a place where the police brutally persecute Falun Dafa practitioners. The police blindfold practitioners who are being unjustly held, bringing them to this gruesome place for inhumane torture. Some practitioners are forced to sit on a "tiger bench" (Practitioners are forced to sit on a small iron bench that is approximately 20 cm (6 inches) tall. Practitioners' knees are tightly tied on the small bench - "Tiger Bench." He has to sit straight up with his eyes looking straight ahead. His hands are tied behind the back or sometimes placed on his knees. He is not allowed to turn his head, close his eyes, talk to anyone, raise his hand or call out for the attention of the guards. Many inmates are assigned to watch the practitioner. If he turns his head, they would force the practitioner to hold his head in that position indefinitely. If the practitioner raises his hand to call the attention of the guards when his hands are placed on his knees, they would force him to hold his hands in the air indefinitely. If he speaks, they would force his mouth to remain open indefinitely. Usually some hard objects are inserted underneath the practitioner's lower legs or ankles to make it more painful for them. See illustration on http://www.clearwisdom.net/emh/articles/2001/11/24/16156.html.) Some are hung up and beaten and then have their legs scratched with small broken pieces of glass. Some have been beaten with mops while their heads were covered with plastic bags. When the mop handle broke, the practitioners were forced to drink filthy water from the mop bucket. Some were shocked with electric batons, and some were burned with cigarette butts. Some had their arms twisted behind their backs, with one arm above the shoulder and the other below in a torture form called "carrying a sword." The practitioner's hands were then handcuffed till sometimes the handcuffs cut into the bone. A wooden stick is then inserted between both arms in the back. Various gruesome torture methods are too terrible to observe. Overnight, practitioners often passed out due to the severe torture. Cold water was then poured on them. The cries of those being tortured and the vicious look of the thugs are the true picture of the so-called "best period for human rights in China's history" when in fact Jiang's group widely persecutes innocent people. The evil is afraid of being exposed. The despicable police officers wiped bloodstains off Dafa practitioners before sending them back to detention centers so that other cellmates would not know what had happened.
Kindhearted people, please make phone calls to stop the villains from persecuting good people who adhere to the principle of "Truthfulness-Benevolence-Forbearance".

[Jiamusi City, Heilongjiang Province] Facts about the Persecution of Female Falun Dafa Practitioner Luan Guirong
38-year-old Luan Guirong, female, works at the Jiamusi Jinding Chemical Company. She lives at the 61st Neighborhood Committee in Yonghong District. On November 28, 2000, she had 1,000 Yuan extorted from her by Su Jingfang, the deputy manager of the Jinding Chemical Company, and Gao Yuewu, the workshop director of the same company (The average monthly salary of an urban worker is about 500 Yuan). On December 1, 2000, she had 240 Yuan extorted from her by a police officer from the Xiangyang Police Station and the chief of the security section of the Combine Harvester Factory. She was unjustly sent to a detention center on December 4, 2000, not to be released until she would make a guarantee statement renouncing Falun Gong. On December 26, 2000, Luan was finally released after paying 300 Yuan to Shi Xiuwen, team leader of the Yonghong Police Station. Her work unit forced her to go off duty, and deducted 1,000 Yuan from her salary.
[Chengdu City, Sichuan Province] Police Frantically Arrest Dafa Practitioners

[Jinzhou City, Liaoning Province] "610 Office" Extorts Money from Practitioners
The "610 Office" of Jinzhou city not only is an accomplice in Jiang's regime but also rampantly extorts money from practitioners. Practitioner Liu Wansheng was forced to pay the office 30,000 Yuan (500 Yuan is the monthly salary for an average Chinese worker). Zhu Laicheng was forced to pay 30,000 Yuan, and his wife and children were forced to pay a total of 10,000 Yuan, so this family has had 40,000 Yuan extorted from them all together. A couple including Qu Jingbo had 30,000 Yuan extorted from them. Jing Xiangtie had 5,000 Yuan extorted. Wang Lige had nearly 10,000 Yuan extorted.

[Hubei Province] Xiangfan First Detention Center Uses Force-feeding Tube as Cruel Torturing Tool
In the First Detention Center of the Xiangfan Police Department, Falun Gong practitioners were separated and placed into cells with criminal inmates. When practitioners went on hunger strike to protest the illegal detention, their hands were handcuffed behind their backs, they were also shackled and force-fed. The police guards ordered that the force-feeding tubes not be pulled out and ordered the criminals to monitor the practitioners. The criminals had to watch practitioners day and night. This made the criminals very tired and anxious. They found all kinds of excuses to beat up the practitioners who had their hands cuffed behind their backs, shackles on their feet and tubes in their stomachs. Even when practitioners stopped the hunger strike, the police guards still ordered that the tube be kept inside and that practitioners be force-fed twice with liquid every day. Since they were handcuffed with their hands behind their backs, they couldn't lie down. Thus in the evening, the practitioners had to sit on a bed board. With a tube pushed down into his or her stomach through the nose and then esophagus, the practitioner was in so much pain that he or she couldn't lie down. The open end of the tube was exposed in the air and only had a little gauze wrapped on it. If the practitioner had the tube knocked out or vomited out, the guards would push it in again.
In medical use, a force-feeding tube is mostly used to release the pressure in the stomach and intestines in rescuing patients in critical condition. In the First Detention Center of Xiangfan Police Department, it became a tool for torturing practitioners on hunger strike.
[Xiangfan City, Hubei Province] Practitioner Guo Huiqin's Bitter Experiences
Practitioner Guo Huiqin, female, 46 years old, has worked for Xiangfan No. 1 Construction Company for a long time. Because she practices Falun Gong, she was persecuted after July 20 1999. The evil forces have illegally fined and detained her many times. She was sent to a forced labor camp and lost her job and income. She had to leave her home to avoid certain arrest. In July 2001, her daughter came home from her university during summer vacation. Guo Huiqin decided to take a risk and go home to take care of her daughter. On July 16, 2001, while she was about to cook for her daughter and her schoolmates, the Party General Secretary Chen Shiping (female) called her and wanted her to talk about something at the company. Guo thought that being a practitioner, one should put a company affair ahead of a family affair, so she went to the company. When she arrived, the policemen who had been waiting for her caught her. Guo Huiqin didn't cooperate with the illegal arrest. She managed to call her daughter. Her daughter and a few schoolmates came quickly. Chen Shiping saw that they had come and revealed her ferocious nature. Chen Shiping and a few policemen dragged Guo out of the building and pushed her into a police vehicle, which took her directly to a forced labor camp. This ugly scene of evil thugs arresting a good person stunned many people who stood on the side including Guo Huiqin's daughter and her friends. Where is the law? Where are the human rights? In Xiangfan City Forced Labor Camp, Guo Huiqin went on hunger strike to protest her illegal detention. Her blood pressure went up very high. Chen Shiping said to her, "If you stop this hunger strike, I will process the paperwork to release you." The honest Guo Huiqin didn't think Chen was just cheating her and thought Chen still had a little kindness in her heart, so she stopped her hunger strike. But, Chen disappeared and never showed up for her medical treatment procedure. Guo Huiqin decided to protect "Truthfulness, Compassion, Forbearance" with her life so she went on hunger strike again. On the night of September 30, 2001, her blood pressure became very high, which scared the leader at the city labor camp. The city "610 Office" called Chen Shiping to take her home, but Chen refused. The city "610 Office" was afraid that she might die in the labor camp so they sent her home in their car. Not long after she arrived at home, however, police illegally detained her again. Before the Chinese New Year, Guo's daughter came home and looked for her everywhere. However no authority would tell her where her mother was detained. The Chinese New Year is the time for a family to get together, but her family was broken apart by the evil force.
[Qiqihar City, Heilongjiang Province] Wenhua Police Station Works With an Agriculture Bank to Detain Practitioner's Relatives
Practitioner Shi Shufang, 51 years old, used to work at the Qiqihar City Agriculture Bank Jianhua Branch. In 1999, because she went to Beijing to appeal, she was sentenced to one year of forced labor. After one year, she should have been released, but the authorities ignored the law again and detained her past her term for an additional year. In 2001, she finally got home but her company didn't allow her to work. Moreover, her company and the local police station restricted her freedom and often called her at home to harass her. In March 2002, she went to see a relative in another county and to look for a job there. After finding out that she had left, the policemen and some people from the Agriculture Bank formed a team of seventeen people to search for her in Longjiang County for a night. They didn't find her. The thugs and policemen then illegally took away Shi Shufang's brother and sister and other relatives, forcibly taking them to Qiqihar city. They used torture on them in an attempt to find out the whereabouts of Shi Shufang.

Before the Spring Festival of 2002, the Party Secretary of the Affiliated Hospital of Tangshan Nurses' School Gao Zhanwen, Rector Li Zhitian, and Doctor Liu Jun seized practitioner Wu Shujia and forced him to defame Falun Gong. Wu clarified the truth to them with a compassionate heart, but he still was sent to a mental hospital. Gao Zhanwen said viciously, "We have already been very nice to you by not putting you into an iron cage." This is the forth time that Wu has been sent to a mental hospital, his longest stay being seven months.

[Jilin Province] Wipe out the Remaining Evil in Yinmahe Forced Labor Camp With Banners and Loudspeakers
Yinmahe Forced Labor Camp in Jiutai, Jilin Province, now detains hundreds of Dafa practitioners from Jilin, Changchun, Songyuan, and other surrounding areas. The wardens in this labor camp closely follow the "human rights scoundrel" Jiang, helping that tyrant to do evil by killing innocent people and fanatically persecuting Dafa practitioners. This camp has been exposed on Minghui Net many times. The recent brutal murder of practitioner Xiao Jinsong is only one example of the atrocities that occur there.
On the evening of March 3rd, Dafa practitioners painted many Dafa phrases such as "Falun Dafa is Good" on the walls of this labor camp and surrounding residential area. They displayed large posters with messages such as "Release All Illegally-detained Dafa Practitioners Instantly!" They also distributed many truth-clarifying CD's and flyers that exposed the crimes of labor camp. They also set up loudspeakers on the walls to broadcast the truth about Dafa and hung many striking scrolls in trees by the roadsides. These actions effectively wiped out the evils in the labor camp and inspired Dafa practitioners detained inside.
[Wujin City, Jiangsu Province] Dafa Practitioners Pressured for Ten Days to Confess
Towards the end of September, ten practitioners from Niutang Town, Wujin City, Jiangsu Province, were maltreated and detained in iron cages. For ten days they were continuously pressured to confess. One practitioner lost consciousness several times after three days and nights. They were given only half a bowl of food each day. Some days they were given nothing. With the full approval of the deputy supervisor Liu Zekun, the policemen of Politic Security Section in Wujin police department used all kinds of devious tactics, including lying and bluffing. Zhu Xiaoying and Jiang Yunxia were continuously interrogated for ten days and nights. Yang Jinyan passed out three times.
[Jingmen City, Hubei Province] Dafa Practitioners Arrested When Clarifying the Truth
Dafa practitioner He Chunxiang from Jingmen, Hubei Province, was arrested in December last year when she was clarifying the truth. Before the Spring Festival of 2002 she was sent to Shayang Labor Camp where she was persecuted mentally and physically. This March two more practitioners Liu Juxian and Li Qingxia were arrested when clarifying the truth. Their whereabouts is unknown.
[Shijiazhuang City, Hebei Province] Detention Center Mentally Persecutes Dafa Practitioners
Recently, Shijiazhuang Detention Center has begun using mental persecution with Dafa practitioners. Practitioners have been brainwashed, forced to watch TV broadcasts of lies and propaganda all day, and forbidden to sleep. If they close their eyes, they incur a beating. To Dafa practitioners who refused to cooperate with the evil, police were even more ruthless, locking them in a "small cell" and encouraging criminals to persecute and beat them.
[Dehui City, Jilin Province] Local Police Station Arrests Many Dafa Practitioners

[Gansu Province] Atrocities in Ping'antai Forced Labor Camp
Gansu practitioners Cui Yonglin of Jingyuan County and Li Chunhong of Northwest Iron Alloy Factory were cruelly beaten in the Ping'antai Forced Labor Camp for insisting on their beliefs. Their bodies have been horribly damaged, and their very lives endangered. The evil persons who beat them are Wang Shukun, Wang Yanjun and Yang Jinzhong.
Police from the Seventh Team (a women's team) including Dai Wenqin, Jing Xuefeng, Li Xiaoqian, Liu Sheng, Liu Jieyu, Gao Tianli, Gu Yanling, Wang Yaming and Liu Yingmei utilized their authority to incite drug abusers and prostitutes Chen Xiaohong, Li Aixia, Sha Cuiqun, Wang Jianghong, and Wang Li to torture Dafa practitioners. Practitioners had their hands handcuffed behind them, were suspended from behind, were beaten up and were not allowed to sleep. These tortures were an attempt to force Dafa practitioners to give up their belief. Two especially vicious officers Wei Haihua and Zhou were recognized with "model worker" awards last year.
