In October 2000, Baotou City Detention Center held a large number of Falun Dafa practitioners who had gone to Beijing to appeal. It was said that there were as many as six busloads of practitioners taken there from Beijing at one time. The police brutally tortured the Dafa practitioners who went on hunger strike. Some practitioners were sprayed with cold water, some were force fed and others were beaten up. The police also incited criminals to use violence against the practitioners. In one cell, practitioner An Qingxia was beaten up after the criminals stuffed a towel into her mouth. Some of the practitioners were shoved to the toilet and forced to sleep on the wet and stinking floor. The police also forced the practitioners to listen to their lectures.

In June 2003, Liao Haimei was arrested again for putting up a Falun Dafa truth-clarification poster and sentenced to three years imprisonment. She is now being held at the Treatment Department of the Nanchang Women's Prison Hospital.
Liao Haimei's belief in Falun Dafa is rock-solid. She rejected all the requests by the police and has been on a hunger strike ever since her arrest. She has not had any prison food in the last seven months and is now force fed by the police every day.
