(Clearwisdom.net) On July 1, 2005, Ms. Jiang Meilan was rescued from Baimalong Labor Camp after being on a hunger strike for 100 days. The rescue occurred with the cooperation of overseas Falun Dafa practitioners, Hunan Falun Dafa practitioners as well as her family.
The above photos were taken the day after Jiang Meilan's rescue. She was so emaciated that she was just skin and bones. Jiang Meilan was force-fed twice a day for 15 days out the 100 days she was on hunger strike. She never gave her name after being illegally arrested, so the persecutors didn't know where she was from. Ms. Jiang was sent to Baimalong Labor Camp in Zhuzhou City, Hunan Province without her family being notified.
When Jiang Meilan was first sent to the labor camp, she had nothing with her except the clothes she was wearing. The guards forbade prisoners to communicate with her. Neither would they allow her to change clothes. Her clothes were soiled by the force-feeding and she had no clean clothes to change into. The force-feeding was very brutal. The guards pried Ms. Jiang's mouth open with a metal spoon, and fed her rice soup from a chipped enamel bowl. Flakes of enamel were mixed in the rice soup and fed to her. Later, they could no longer feed her this way, so they switched to giving her intravenous injections. Ms. Jiang's arms became severely bruised because of this.
