(Clearwisdom.net) During the Olympics, under the instigation of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP), the guards at Suihua Forced Labor Camp in Heilongjiang Province intensified their persecution of Falun Gong practitioners.

The forced labor camp used the slogans such as "Stabilize the environment" and "Create harmony" to incite the increased brutality. They didn't allow the practitioners to drink boiled hot water, make phone calls, purchase goods, or allow them to meet with family members. All practitioners were separated, tied-up, and forced to sing the so-called "transformation" songs, study the camp regulations and orders, and read the "Reporting Lyrics" the guards drew up. If practitioners didn't read or sing, they would face physical brutality or be forced to stand for a few hours, regardless of age. The guards used electric batons and rubber clubs to hit the practitioners. They used ropes to tie them up, burned them with cigarettes, and used fire to burn their fingers and toes. The labor camp officers also forced the practitioners to work up to 16 hours or more a day packing toothpicks. They didn't allow them to use the restroom, If a practitioner needed to use the restroom, he had to make a report, otherwise they wouldn't let him go. If the practitioners didn't cooperate or obey orders, they were hung-up with rope and even forced to wear earphones to hear recordings slandering Falun Gong. Tortures also included force-feeding with hot pepper liquid or mustard oil, and having plastic bags placed over their heads. Subjected to such severe treatment, the health of many practitioners deteriorated, and several older practitioners could not handle it and fainted.

Currently, the practitioners being brutally persecuted in Suihua Forced Labor Camp are: Wang Dehai, Lu Shijie, Zhao Dezhi, Zhang Chuanxi, Cao Jingdong, Cheng Shouxiang, Song Wentao, and Yao Zhu.

The guards involved in persecuting practitioners are: Zheng Youliang, Gao Zhonghai, Long Kuibing, Liu Wei, Lian Xing, Shi Jian, Li Chengchun, Li Xichun, Diao Xuesong, and others.
