Persecution of Falun Dafa Practitioners at the Yongchuan Womens Prison in Chongqing City
(Clearwisdom.net) Officials at the Yongchuan Womens Prison in Chongqing City physically torture and mentally torment Falun Dafa practitioners. They also order inmates to secretly mix unknown drugs into the practitioners food, which over time results in nervous disorders.
The following are a few persecution incidents at the prison.
Dafa practitioner Ms. Wang Lan is in her forties. She was illegally sentenced to seven years in prison for persisting in her belief. When the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) agents held a propaganda show at the prison to promote "role models" who are "reformed" practitioners, Wang Lan spoke up. The officials told her to shut up. They dragged her outside and attempted to coerce her to repent, but Wang Lan refused. The officials forbade her from leaving the cell or using the restroom. Under these circumstances she reluctantly agreed to repent, and a "repent meeting" was immediately held at the Rujian Division. Ms. Wang grabbed the microphone and started to expose the persecution and clarify the truth to everyone at the meeting.
Subsequently, Wang Lan suffered from severe anemia due to long-term malnutrition, and her hemoglobin was only 5 grams per 100 cc. She wrote a solemn announcement to completely annul the "reform" and handed it to the head of Division 2. In reprisal, the guards took a series of measures, including forbidding her from getting food downstairs, forbidding meeting with family or phone calls and withholding all incoming and outgoing letters. The guards have the phone number of Wang Lans family, but they didnt tell her family to stop coming to the prison. Instead, when the family members arrive, the guards simply would not permit them to see her. Thus, the family made numerous trips to the prison in vain. This was the guards' tactic to shift the blame on Wang Lan and manipulate her family to pressure her into giving up her belief.
Practitioner Ms. Xu Jingling is in her thirties. She is a merchant and was sentenced to seven years in prison. She refused to cooperate with the evildoers and refused to "reform." Ms. Xu was forced to stand in front of the office on the fourth floor of Division 2 every night, regardless how late, for several months as a form of "study," according to the authorities. The persecutors forbade her from buying snacks or extra food from the canteen. When an inmate gave her a little salted vegetable out of sympathy, the inmate was immediately reported and scolded by guard Zhang. When other Falun Gong practitioners confronted the division head, she denied knowledge of the restriction and said, "She [Xu Jingling] is frugal and doesnt want to spend money."
Practitioner Ms. Bai Fachun is in her fifties and was a technician at the Jialing Factory in the Shapingba District. The officials found Dafa articles on her and coerced her to repent. She refused and was locked in solitary confinement cell for more than 20 days.
Practitioner Ms. Tan Fenghao is in her thirties and was a teacher before she was sent to prison. She shouted "Falun Dafa is good" during a so-called "expose and attack" meeting and the guards tried to force her to repent. She refused and the officials forbade her from using the restroom. She went to the restroom on her own at night when the inmates assigned to watch her were away. After she returned to the cell, inmate Zhang Mei struck her face and then Tan Fenghao was locked in solitary confinement for one week. She refused to call herself a prisoner and the officials forbade her from buying anything, including toilet paper and feminine napkins at the canteen. After Ms. Tan "reformed" under tremendous pressure, she nearly suffered a mental collapse. Her mother petitioned the authorities many times to take her daughter home for treatment but her requests were denied.
Practitioner Liu Xinghui, in her fifties, is from Qinggang Town, Bishan, Chongqing City. She was held in a cell at Division 6 for a month and was never permitted to leave the cell. Once she was forbidden to use the restroom for six days. She became incontinent on the sixth day, and her lower body was soaked in urine. In addition, the guards ordered inmates to constantly put unknown drugs into her food over a long time, which caused her to become disoriented.
Practitioner Wu Suhui from the Changshou District, Chongqing City was sentenced to four years in prison. She refused to cooperate with the evildoers and refused to "reform." Inmate Xiao Tihui beat her. Ms. Wu shouted, "Falun Dafa is good" in the hallway and was held in solitary confinement for one week.
Practitioner Zhou Xuxia from the Nanan District, Chongqing City was sentenced to seven years in prison. She refused to call herself a prisoner and as a result was prevented from buying anything in the canteen, including toilet paper, leading to a great inconvenience. She was once locked in solitary confinement for more than 20 days, during which time she was denied permission to wash herself, and the inmates also verbally abused her.
Practitioner Yang Xiaoli is a teacher from Southwest Normal University. She was subjected to various types of corporal punishment. She was made to clean the restroom, forced to squat for long periods and deprived of sleep for two days. The inmates beat and kicked her, and threatened and verbally assaulted her. Ms. Yang was locked in solitary confinement. The guards tied her thumbs to a metal bed for more than two hours. They beat her until her arms were bruised for a long time. Yang Xiaoli's legs and feet often swelled and pained her. She refused to wear the prison uniform. The inmates stripped her naked to humiliate her. She was later transferred to the Chongqing Juvenile Correctional Facility.
Practitioner Guo Li went on a long-term hunger strike to protest the persecution, and was taken to the prison hospital where she was force-fed many times.
Practitioner Wang Li is in her thirties and comes from Dazu. She refused to call herself a prisoner, so the guards refused to let her family see her. She went on a hunger strike twice to protest the persecution.
Practitioner Gao Yuxia, 40 years old, worked at the Changshou District Grain Bureau. She was sentenced to five years in prison. Ms. Gao refused to cooperate with the evildoers and was sent to a Heavy Penalty Group to be strictly monitored and persecuted. The guards forbade her from eating, drinking and using the restroom for a long time.
Luo Zhengqun, political head of Division 2, prevented practitioner Yang Fengxi from buying extra food from the canteen unless Yang Fengxi "reformed." He said, "Dont even think about extra food before you reform."
Luo Zhengqun tried to incite hatred toward determined Falun Gong practitioners among the inmates. To incite hatred against Dafa practitioners, he lied and stated at a prison-wide meeting, "All inmates violations such as smoking in cells are reported by Falun Gong practitioners." He also reinforced a "mutual isolation system" to prevent communication among Falun Gong practitioners.
