Abusive "Psychiatric Treatment"
All over Guangdong Province, normal, healthy Falun Gong practitioners are illegally detained in psychiatric hospitals and drug rehabilitation centres. Many others are injected or force-fed various drugs in local police stations, detention centers, forced labor camps, and brainwashing centers. The harmful effects of the drugs have cause some practitioners to become entirely paralysed or partially paralysed. The other harmful effects include but are not limited to blindness, deafness, putrefied muscle tissues and internal organs, memories loss, damaged organ functions and mental collapse. Some practitioners met with suddenly deaths due to the adverse affects of the drugs.
Falun Dafa practitioner Ms. Wen Fenhua from Mianhu Town, Jiexi County, Guangdong Province was arrested on the morning of May 30, 2005, by the Jiexi Police Department, the 610 Office and the Mianhu Police Station working jointly. She was injected with unknown drugs in the veins on her hands, wrists, and many other places, which left her covered with pinholes and dark blue scars. When her family saw her two weeks later, her eyes were closed, she was unable to move, she had to be spoon-fed, and she was unable to even turn herself over or use the toilet.
The police fabricate lies and use scare tactics to torment practitioners and their families in two ways. For example, they mislead Falun Gong practitioners by saying a family member is critically ill, the family has some trouble, another family member who is also practicing has been arrested or sentenced, or someone has died. On the other hand, police deceive the families of Falun Gong practitioners by saying: Your husband or son is mentally ill and has disowned the family, and so on, to cause the family members a lot of anxiety.
Brainwashing and Forced "Transformation" Designed to Destroy Practitioners' Belief in "Truthfulness-Compassion-Tolerance:"
After being arrested, countless numbers of Falun Gong practitioners are sent to brainwashing centers. In various evil places, the guards force Falun Gong practitioners to repeatedly watch television programs filled with fabricated news and evil doctrines that slander Falun Gong. In order to exert further pressure on practitioners and threaten practitioners' families and colleagues, they threaten to prevent practitioners from continuing at their jobs, and restrict their access to schools. Also, all sorts of torture methods and sleep deprivation are used to torment practitioners until they are muddle-headed, so that practitioners will sign "guarantee statements." Every day practitioners are forced to write so-called "ideological reports" and slander Falun Gong, so that practitioners will be transformed into bad people who are fake, vicious, and like to fight with other people. The transformed people are in turn used to attack and transform other practitioners.
Brutal Force-Feeding Through the Nose:
Those Falun Gong practitioners that resist the coercive efforts and conduct hunger strikes undergo cruel force-feeding at the hands of the police. A rubber hose (same size as those used for siphoning gasoline) is inserted into the nasal passage and down into the stomach. The tubing is intentionally pulled in and out a few times to cause extreme discomfort and pain. The practitioners' gullets, tracheae, and lungs can be injured because of this technique, and many have died from force-feeding.
In January 2000, Falun Gong practitioner Gao Xianmin, a teacher at Jinan University in Guangzhou City, was force-fed concentrated salt water after he went on a hunger strike at Tangxia Detention Center in Tianhe District. Warden Zhu Wenyong directed four criminal inmates to stand on Gao Xianmin's limbs, pinch his nose, and pour a packet of salt into a bottle to mix with only a little water. They began pouring the concentrated salt solution into the feeding tube before the salt was fully dissolved. Gao Xianmin died on the spot from suffocation as the solution went into his lungs instead of his stomach.
Brutal Force-Feeding and Tortures Involving Human Urine and Feces
Falun Gong practitioners have been soaked in sewage or a mixture of excrement and water, and force-fed with toilet water, feces and urine. Practitioner's heads have been held over excrement so that they are forced to breathe the terrible smell. They have been force-fed ice-water, mustard, or boiling water, and have been injected with poisonous drugs and nerve-damaging drugs. In 2003, at the Guangzhou Huangpu Drug Rehabilitation Center, Falun Gong practitioner Zhang Mengye (classmate of Hu Jintao at Qinghua University) was force-fed with toilet water.
Exposing to Extreme Hot and Cold Temperatures
Policemen drench practitioners with cold water and force them to stand outside in the winter, force practitioners to wear thin underwear and stand outside for several days and nights or even longer, force them to stand in the burning sun in the summer, and lock practitioners in small cells at a temperature of more than 40 degrees, and then turn up the heat.
Horrific and Inhuman Tortures
Furthermore, there are tortures such as being forced to stand for a long time, forced to squat, sit on a small stool, locked to a metal chair (tiger's bench), having their hands, feet and body tied into torturous positions, cruel beatings and detainment in small cells which could be covered in red, yellow, green, black and white mold with fetid odor on the ceiling, floor, and walls. Almost everyone contracts scabies and other skin diseases under the inhuman living conditions. The guards then scratch the pustules on the practitioner's bodies with unclean knives or spoons, which is extremely painful and causes flesh and blood to stick together as the practitioners bleed all over the floor. Guards, police, and inmates will press down or stand on practitioners, pull off their clothes, scratch practitioners' skin, and beat their ribs with metal rods battened to a board. Afterwards, the victims' skin is black and purple, bleeding, swollen, and unbearably painful.
Other tortures include pressing a long wooden stool into practitioner's bodies until the stool is covered with blood; long-term sleep deprivation, use of high decibel noise to damage auditory nerves, disallowing practitioners to use the toilet, disallowing female practitioners to change sanitary napkins or use toilet paper, not allowing them to wash for several months during the hot summer, exposing them to mosquitoes, vipers, scorpions, and other poisonous insects, nipping the flesh with iron pincers, pricking with sharp metal implements, tossing darts at them, hammering bamboo sticks and toothpicks under their finger nails and toe nails, pricking with metal wire, puncturing the fingers with sharp objects, sealing the mouth with tape while beating the practitioners, stuffing their mouths with socks, cuffing them to a metal ring that is attached to the floor for several months, extreme physical labor, forced abortions, torturing healthy practitioners until they are disabled, and innumerable other kinds of strange and horrific tortures.
2. Government Offices in Guangdong Responsible for Illegally Detaining Falun Gong Practitioners
The prisons in Guangdong that illegally detain Falun Gong practitioners are directly administered under Guangdong Province Administration Bureau, which is controlled by Guangdong Province Office of Justice. The forced labor camps are directly under Guangdong Province Forced Labor Bureau, which is controlled by the Office of Justice. The Office of Justice is in turn controlled by Guangdong Province Politics and Judiciary Committee, otherwise known as the 610 Office. The local 610 Offices direct local police stations to arrest practitioners and take them to brainwashing centers. The Provincial Politics and Judiciary Committee and 610 Office control all of these agencies. The provincial 610 Office is controlled by a central 610 Office.
Guangdong Sihui Prison holds male Falun Gong practitioners.

Forced Labor Camps
Forced labor camps in Guangdong Province include Shenzhen No. 2 (male), Guangzhou Huadu (male), and Guangdong Sanshui, which imprisons male Falun Gong practitioners. Guangzhou and Shenzhen at one time imprisoned more than 200 Falun Gong practitioners. Guangzhou Chatou and Guangdong Sanshui imprison female practitioners, and at one time imprisoned as many as several thousand Falun Gong practitioners.
Brainwashing centers are used to illegally detain Falun Gong practitioners. Moreover, a brainwashing center does not require any legal procedure or evidence to randomly seize and detain people, yet they abuse and torture practitioners with extreme cruelty. Many Falun Gong practitioners have been injured, disabled, or killed from such persecution.
Brainwashing Centers in Guangdong include: Sanshui, Guangzhou Chatou, Maoming, Zhuhai Fumin, Meizhou, Shantou, Zhaoqing, Zhanjiang, Shenzhen, Shaoguan Huanggang, and Qingyuan Drum Training Field. Among them, Sanshui operates for long terms, normally three months per term. For those who do not "transform," detention in a brainwashing center can be extended for another three months, repeatedly. Some practitioners have been held there for several years.
In 2005, policemen and unlawful people from all over Guangdong carried out a few large-scale raids to find Falun Gong practitioners. So far, several hundred practitioners are still being held in brainwashing centers, detention centers, and forced labor camps where they are suffering inhumane torture and persecution.
The above are the persecution methods used on Falun Gong practitioners to get them to renounce their beliefs. They are used systematically by the evil Chinese Communist regime and have been designed layer by layer.
Currently, this systematic, organized and large-scale brutal persecution of Falun Gong practitioners who believe in "Truthfulness, Compassion, Forbearance" is still going on. This 6-year, country-wide, and completely inhuman persecution is not only the persecution of Falun Gong, even more, it overrides human conscience and morality, and destroys humanity and kindness. Together, let's together stop this persecution of kind and innocent people.
