2. More Details of Chuanying District Brainwashing Class in Jilin City, Jilin Province
In May of 2005, officials from the Chuanying District and the Chunguang Dairy Ltd. Corp CEO Qu Jiang illegally held a two-month long brainwashing class in the Dairy Company Hotel. In exchange, the Chuanying District would steer business and financial support to the Dairy Company. Chuanying District officials instructed each police substation and neighborhood administration to harass Falun Dafa practitioners at their homes, force them to write a "guarantee statement", and send them to a brainwashing class or labor camp. On the evening of May 17, 2005, around 6 p.m., these monsters of the local regime began abducting Falun Dafa practitioners as planned. They abducted Falun Dafa practitioner Ms. Li Qinghui near Fengjiatun Number 8 Bus Station; they abducted Ms. Wang Shulan (in her 70's) by breaking into her home; and they deceptively lured Ms. Hou Shufen from her home. They also tried to abduct Ms. Liu Guiyun, but were stopped by her husband's righteous actions. On the evening of May 20, 6-7 p.m., Ms. Li Yulian was abducted and sent to the brainwashing class from her home. Ms. Li Yulian has been sentenced to three years forced labor in the Heizuizi Labor Camp in Changchun City for appealing on behalf of Falun Dafa. There have been a total of ten Falun Dafa practitioners abducted so far to the brainwashing class.
3. Persecution Facts in Pengzhou City Brainwashing Class and a Mental Hospital in Sichuan Province
Falun Dafa practitioner Ms. Li Yongxiu is from Pengzou City, Sichuan Province. She was tortured in the Pengzou City Brainwashing Class held by 610 Office personnel, and became very weak. She was transferred to the Pengzou City Mental Hospital, and was given injections of unknown drugs, causing her whole body to swell with extreme pain. She passed out several times. The nurses burned her lips with a hot spoon and stabbed her gums, making her mouth bleed. Although she was dying, she was still forced to wear ankle shackles. She was sent back to the brainwashing class, and then sent again to the mental hospital. Later, the villains, who were afraid of being held responsible for her imminent death, sent her home. Now she is unable to care for herself.
