Shouts of "Falun Dafa Is Good" Are Heard Every Day in Masanjia Forced Labor Camp

March 13, 2005 |  

(Clearwisdom.net) In October 2004, about 900 Falun Gong practitioners were illegally detained in Masanjia Forced Labor Camp. As of mid-February, 688 Falun Gong practitioners were still detained there. On February 1, 2005, because practitioners on the first floor shouted, "Falun Dafa is good!" at least three practitioners were sent away in a police vehicle. The guards in Masanjia Forced Labor Camp said they were sent to Dabei Prison. Several days later, more practitioners were sent away, and the guards said they were sent to the Criminal Team.

One morning in January 2005, several Falun Gong practitioners detained in the Second Brigade shouted from the window, "Falun Dafa is good," "Falun Dafa is righteous," "Stop the persecution," "Release us unconditionally." Their ongoing protest discouraged the guards at the Masanjia Labor Camp.

Falun Gong practitioners in the First, Second, and Third Brigades who went on a hunger strike to protest the illegal arrest were all locked up behind the iron gate on the first floor. They shouted, "Falun Dafa is good" countless times, 24 hours a day. The practitioners who were locked up in the "small cell" in the No. 4 "Comprehensive Building" [a place at Masanjia Forced Labor Camp where steadfast Dafa practitioners are tortured even more severely] also shouted, "Falun Dafa is good!" In order to muffle the protest, the guards played rock'n'roll music at a high volume, but still couldn't drown out the practitioners' righteous voices. As a result, the authorities of the labor camp sent several male guards into the building to brutally suppress the female practitioners, but the sound of "Falun Dafa is good" is still heard every day.

Falun Gong practitioners Ms. Li Mei, 37 years old, from Dalian City, Liaoning Province, and Ms. Yi Wei, over 40 years old, from Yuhong District, Shenyang City, Liaoning Province, were locked up in the restroom for about 6 days. Currently, Li Mei is being persecuted in the "Comprehensive Building." Some practitioners were detained in the warehouse, which is normally used to store raw materials used for the forced labor. Ms. Xu Jun, who is over 60 years old, from Fushun City, Liaoning Province, was detained in the gloomy, cold, damp warehouse and subjected to brainwashing for 2 months. Ms. Li Baojie, from Panjin City, Liaoning Province, was detained in the Fourth Subteam of the Third Brigade. Ms. Yang Liwei, from Benxin City, Liaoning Province, has been on a hunger strike for 3 months and has been force-fed all this time. As a result of the maltreatment, a practitioner who is over 40 years old, from Dandong City, Liaoning Province, shows symptoms of uterine cancer; she has been confined to bed and needs two people to help her when using the restroom.

When Ms. Liu Jingwen from Shenyang City was sent from the Longshan Forced Labor Camp to Masanjia Forced Labor Camp in October 2004, a tall male team leader with the last name Feng from the Longshan Forced Labor Camp beat her and knocked out one of her teeth. She has been on a hunger strike for about 3 months and is very weak. When Ms. Liu Jinzhi from the Third Subteam refused to do forced labor, Li Mingyu, head of the Third Brigade, threatened her. He said that if she still refused to work, her term would be extended and she would be sentenced to prison. Ms. Liu Jinzhi's sister, Ms. Liu Jinying, was detained in the Second Brigade.

The guards in Masanjia have been persecuting Falun Gong practitioners using even more insidious and covert means. They often call out the head of the cell and give her their orders in secret. They supervise, closely monitor and have increased the severity of the maltreatment of the firm practitioners. The guards also spread rumors to try to create disagreements and mistrust among practitioners. For example, they spread lies among the isolated steadfast practitioners, saying that other practitioners have been "reformed" or yielded to the pressure and gave information to the authorities.

Su Jing, the chief of the Second Section, is deceitful and secretly directs the abuse. A practitioner confronted Su Jing once: "You always say that you treat Falun Gong practitioners in a civilized manner, but why did you lock the practitioners who refuse to collaborate with you in persecuting practitioners in the restroom?" Su Jing still denied any wrongdoing, saying, "We just don't have enough space." Around November 2004, Su Jing and director Wang Naimin saw a prison guard beating a Falun Gong practitioner in a hallway because he refused to give up his belief. They didn't stop the guard; instead, they they encouraged the guard even more by laughing. In Su Jing's office there is a computer; she claims that she can read Falun Dafa articles and news from the clearwisdom.net website as soon as they are published. Su Jing slandered Clearwisdom.net site in front of the Falun Gong practitioners detained in the Women's Second Section.
