Righteous Actions in the Wind and Rain
There is a torture room that is used especially to detain Dafa practitioners in Gaoyang Forced Labor Camp. There are two iron hoops fixed to the floor. Dafa practitioners are handcuffed to the iron hoops, and they can't sit down or stand up. Some practitioners are handcuffed in this position for several days and nights. One day, three vicious policemen and two collaborators [former Falun Gong practitioners who have gone astray due to brainwashing and torture] tied me up in a single bed that had steel wires twisted on both sides. They pushed me into the middle of the bed with both arms stretched out, and my hands were cuffed to the steel wires. Then the policemen began to beat and kick me. They tried to seal my mouth with tape and put an earpiece on me that played a recording of slanderous propaganda. But they could not seal up my mouth, and I shouted as usual "Return my Teacher's reputation" and "Falun Dafa is good."
Facts of the Persecution

She was illegally detained for one month and then sentenced to two years of reeducation through labor. She is now being detained in Chatou Province Female Forced Labor Camp in Guangzhou City. In the forced labor camp, Deng Yi has suffered inhuman torment. She is not allowed her to see her family, and they are not allowed to give her any warm clothes for the winter.

He was illegally sentenced to three years of reeducation through labor, and has been detained in Group Two, Hewan Forced Labor Camp, Wuhan City, and has suffered from inhuman tortures. In the dead of winter in 2002, because he refused to squat down to register his name and participate in forced labor, he was forced to stand in the piercing cold wind with an empty stomach for at least two hours, The police did not allow him to sleep or use the toilet at night. They also instigated drug abusers to curse him, beat him and insult his belief.

On July 20, 2002, a person turned her in while she was clarifying the truth. While she was detained, she again suffered from hemorrhaging. She was sent to a hospital for emergency treatment. Even though her life was in danger, she was still sent to a forced labor camp to be continuously persecuted. At this time Chuang Jing is still suffering from internal bleeding, so she can only lie flat. Her situation is very grave.
