Facts of the Persecution

Persecution facts from the Masanjia Forced Labor Camp

The practitioners in Group 5, Division 2 of the Masanjia Forced Labor Camp started protesting the persecution around New Year's Day 2005. They began a group hunger strike on New Year's Day and refused to do slave labor. The authorities didn't allow the practitioners to eat at the cafeteria or take showers. They locked the practitioners in a small room and didn't allow them to talk. Practitioner Wang Ling was locked in a small storage room. One time, several guards nudged Wang Ling along with electric batons, then took her away and said they were going to send her to Dabei Prison.


Practitioners, including Wang Wu, who shouted, "Falun Dafa is good" were locked in solitary confinement. Practitioner Ms. Xin Shuhua was detained in solitary confinement for 20 days. When she was released from solitary, her legs and feet had been injured. Practitioner Ms. Mi Yanli was tied in a metal chair four times during the three months she was held in a solitary confinement cell. Her hands and feet were tied up, and only one hand was free during meals. She was so brutally tortured that she was bedridden by the time she was let out of solitary confinement.

The labor camp officials played music around the clock to prevent the practitioners from getting any sleep. Because practitioner Ms. Qiao Hong refused to wear an inmate's uniform, her term was illegally extended by ten days. Practitioner Ms. Zhang Aidi had her term extended by 20 days because she studied the Fa and didn't cooperate with the authorities. Practitioner Ms. Cui Yaning has been held more than three months past her term and is still in detention.
