Practitioners Brutally Tortured at the Third Forced Labor Camp in Guangzhou City, Guangdong Province

June 16, 2007 |  

(Clearwisdom.net) Guangzhou's Third Forced Labor Camp located at Chini Town, Huadu District, was originally transferred from the city's First Forced Labor Camp in May 2005. It is a real dungeon, illegally detaining and torturing Falun Dafa practitioners.

The third brigade in the camp has three restricted rooms where detained practitioners have been monitored by five inmates working in shifts. The inmates, taking orders from prison guards, stripped practitioners naked and carried out dirty, obscene acts. They forced practitioners to sit, stand for hours, and deprived them of sleep. They forced practitioners to read slanderous materials, watch videos slandering Falun Dafa and write so-called "experience sharing." The prison guards and inmates would hit and curse practitioners when they refused to comply with their illegal demands.

In order to further persecute practitioners, the perpetrators used a brutal torture method called "wrapping dry-rice dumpling." First they roped practitioners' hands behind their backs, then, they tied the rope around their legs, and then they pulled the roped legs upward towards the bound hands. Then they pulled, with great force, practitioners' bound bodies backward and upward, causing excruciating, splitting pain, until the practitioners lost consciousness.

In order to "transform" practitioners, the guards also tortured them with a method called "rope-net." They used a long rope to tie up a practitioner's hands and feet tightly together behind their back, then suspended the practitioner from the ceiling-fan hook. After a few minutes the practitioner's body would show bruises everywhere, and after a longer time, his muscles would tear and bones would break.

For a long period of time, the perpetrators forced practitioners to sit on small, ridged benches. Early in the morning, practitioners were only given a small amount of watery porridge, and to torture them further, they weren't allowed to use the toilet. This torture seriously damaged practitioners' urinary system and bowels. Another vicious aspect of the persecution, practitioners were forced to do hard labor for as long as ten hour every day. Even practitioners in their seventies weren't excluded from forced labor.

There are still about ten practitioners held at the Third Forced Labor Camp.
