The 201 Hospital (a hospital for forced labor camps) of Qingjiang Town, Jintang County, Chengdu City, Sichuan Province, is now filled with practitioners transferred from other locations.
(1) Being confined in a solitary compartment
"Being confined in a solitary compartment" refers to locking up a single detainee in a solitary cell, which contains a basin and a pair of handcuffs. The basin is used both for face washing and as a chamber pot. One end of the handcuffs fastens the wrist and the other end attaches to the door railing. The handcuffs can be fastened onto the door railing at three different heights. In the highest position, the detainee has to extend his/her arm upward. The middle position is at waist level. In the lowest position, the detainee can sit on the ground. See illustration on http://www.clearwisdom.net/emh/articles/2001/11/24/16156.html
(2) Hanging Up in the Air
Practitioners' hands are tied with thin ropes and then they are hung up for several hours, or even several days. Sometimes, the rope is so tight it breaks; and sometimes the rope cuts into the flesh. Some practitioners lose consciousness while being hung up. In many cases, the practitioners are hung by their handcuffs, which results in broken bones. See illustrations on http://www.clearwisdom.net/emh/articles/2004/7/5/49890.html; http://www.clearwisdom.net/emh/articles/2004/7/27/50708.html
