(Clearwisdom.net) Because of my belief in "Truthfulness, Compassion, Forbearance," I was arrested in 2001 and detained in Shulan City Detention Center in Jilin Province. In order to regain my freedom, I started a hunger strike on the fifth day of the illegal detention. The director of the detention center, Zhuang Runjiang, took a "small white dragon" (a white plastic tube about 20 centimeters long and one inch thick with sharp edges) and ordered the prisoners to pull me from my cell and drag me into a small meeting room. While a group of prisoners held me down the ground, Zhuang stepped on my head with his shoes and started cursing loudly.

Five or six prisoners held me down, and I could not move at all. Some of them pinched my nose and pried open my tightly closed teeth. Zhuang stuck that sharp "small white dragon" with dirt on it into my mouth. Blood immediately flew out of my mouth. Doctor Chen of the detention center hospital, who participated in the forced-feeding, dropped his cellphone out of his shirt pocket into a basin of water. He panicked while preparing the water for him to wash his own hands after the feed.

The doctor at the detention center didn't care about my critical condition caused by the illegal procedure of force-feeding. He was more concerned about his cellphone than me. He took his cellphone out of the water, cleaned it, wiped it off, and shook it.

At that time I was being force-fed. Because they thought that I would not voluntarily swallow the "corn paste," they tightly covered my nose, which stopped me from breathing, and poured the "corn paste" into the tube stuck into my mouth. I could not breathe since my mouth was jammed and my arms and legs were held tight. I stopped breathing with my eyes open.

My eyes started to bulge, the blood vessels started pounding, and my brain was severely deprived of oxygen. I was very clear about my dangerous situation at the time. One moment's strong righteous thought told me, "Believe the power that Falun Dafa has given me." I could never allow this group of people to kill me this way.

I started to use all my strength and was able to shift my head under Zhuang's shoe. Zhuang unexpectedly moved his shoe from my head. I struggled to escape the hands on my nose and the tube in my mouth. I had started to vomit blood with the corn paste onto my face, my body, and the floor.

I understood now: those Falun Dafa practitioners who were persecuted during force-feeding died of this torture. In order to conceal their crimes, they claimed that the practitioners had died as a result of their hunger strikes. The 19-year-old girl, Chu Congrui, from Shulan City, Jilin Province, was detained in Tiananmen Police Station of Beijing City. Her family received a death notice on the fifth day of her detention. The true reason for her death has been concealed.

Such horrible, brutal torture! The CCP and its accomplices don't value the lives of practitioners as much as their cellphones. That doctor from the detention center was still playing with his cellphone when I got up from the floor. However, had I died, he would have written "This person died as a result of a hunger strike" on the medical report.

The "small white dragon" injured my throat. My throat was swollen and sore for a long time. This kind of inhumane torture was only a small sample of the multitude of brutal acts taking place in China's detention centers, labor camps, prisons, and brainwashing centers.

Kind people, let us appeal together to stop this persecution towards the good people who believe in "Truthfulness, Compassion, Forbearance." Good is repaid with good, and evil with evil.
