Enslaved in a Toxic Environment, Ms. Zhang Yuzhi Was Persecuted to Death at the Heizuizi Labor Camp
(Clearwisdom.net) Dafa practitioner Ms. Zhang Yuzhi, 48 years old, lived in Erdaobaihe Town, Antu County, Yanbian Korean Ethnic Autonomous Region, Jilin Province. On February 4, 2002, she was illegally arrested from her home by police and detained in the Huizuizi Labor Camp in Changchun City. She was forced to work in a toxic environment for 16 hours per day. The surrounding air was viscous and contained many cancer-causing materials. Ms. Zhang worked with an adhesive substance that emitted strong, irritating smells. She was tortured psychologically by brainwashing. Under the dual pressure, she contracted leukemia. The camp did not allow her family to take her home until she could no longer take care of herself. Ms. Zhang went home on August 31, 2002 and passed away two weeks later.
In August 2002, in order to make money by exporting bird crafts, the Huizuizi Labor Camp applied a solution to dye the feathers. The dyed feathers were placed in the hallway for drying. The special solution was poisonous and emitted a strong, odd smell, which spread throughout the whole building and made people feel dizzy, have headaches, and even vomit. Several days later, about a hundred people were poisoned. Many of them suffered from dysentery and had a continuous fever of 104ºF. However, the camp doctors shouted: "No shot below 101.3ºF!"
Under former president Jiang Zemin's regime's evil persecution policies of "ruin their reputations, bankrupt them financially, and destroy them physically," and, "killing is to be treated as suicide," the Falun Gong practitioners detained in the Heizuizi Labor Camp are tortured both mentally and physically. The camp also inhumanly enslaves practitioners with extended working hours and increased work intensity.
