Falun Gong practitioner Mr. Zhou Qingyu,
67, was a retired worker from the Dajiang Factory in Banan
District, Chongqing City. He was illegally arrested
early 2007 while clarifying the truth
to people and sentenced to 18 months of forced labor. He was
detained at the Xishanping Forced Labor Camp in Chongqing City.
During the "training session" in July 2007, he was in the First
Section of the Seventh Ward. Prisoner Li Liang hit Mr. Zhou in the
neck, which caused a painful injury. He had to bow his head all the
time, even while laboring and doing military training on the field.
(Clearwisdom.net) My name is Jin Chengshan and I am 50-years
old. I used to work for the Hulan District Police Department. In
1996 I was involved in a traffic accident and became paraplegic. I
then retired and stayed at home. I had been looking for a cure
everywhere for my festering bedsore. As none of the big hospitals
in the country could cure my bedsore with modern medicine, I
started practicing Falun Gong. My bedsore healed miraculously soon
after I started the practice and my physical condition has changed
for the better in various aspects. My wife Jiao Xiaohua also
started practicing Falun Gong fortunately and my family, which was
on the verge of breaking up, regained vitality. Although I was
disabled, my family was harmonious and happy; my whole family
benefited greatly from practicing Falun Gong. Through practicing
Falun Gong, I felt from the depth of my heart the significant
relationship and vital meaning of the Great Law of the Universe,
"Truthfulness-Benevolence-Tolerance," to every life.
Recently, information was obtained about
the severe persecution of Falun Dafa practitioners by the "610
Officer" and police in Taihe County, Fuyang City, Anhui Province.
Practitioners were illegally arrested
tortured at the detention center. The torture methods included
being subjected to freezing temperatures for extended periods of
time, being handcuffed and shackled, and being repeatedly poked
with needles. Some practitioners were tortured by police twisting
their arms and some were forced to jump down flights of stairs
while shackled. Many of these practitioners were sentenced to
forced labor. Eight practitioners were arrested. Some have been
detained for almost a year.
