Practitioners Illegally Detained in Shandong Province's Second Forced Labor Camp

June 22, 2008 |  

(Clearwisdom.net) More than 200 Falun Gong practitioners are still illegally detained in the Second Forced Labor Camp of Shandong Province (formerly Wangcun Forced Labor Camp). The majority of them are over 50 years old. They are tortured day and night, and suffer physically and mentally.

In October 2007, the camp was moved to No. 29, Jiwang Road, GuanZhuang Village, Zhangqiou City. It is an evil, dark den, where Falun Gong practitioners are persecuted. Cameras and microphones were installed in every room. To obtain bonuses, the guards force practitioners to work more than 9 hours every day, yet they report that the practitioners work for only 7 hours each day. The guards reprimand practitioners whenever their work slows down. They only pay 4 yuan for living expenses, and constantly claim that the "government cares about you" and that they are a "harmonious team." The team leader, Luo Guangrong said that "harmony is based on following camp rules and the guard team." Anyone who oversteps the "limit" will be severely punished. The guards, such as Wang Xinjiang, Li Gongming, and Song Nan, brutally persecute practitioners. In a meeting, Wang Xinjinag defamed Falun Gong and claimed that the guards would not hit people. When the meeting ended, practitioner Run Fulu stood up and said, "First, Falun Dafa is a righteous path. It's not a cult. Second, you claimed that guards don't hit people, but you hit my head a few days ago." Wang Xinjiang became angry, put Run Fulu in solitary confinement for seven days, and extended his detention period for one month.

Practitioners are illegally detained in the 7th and 8th groups. The guards for the 7th group ordered practitioners who have "transformed" to persecute steadfast Falun Gong practitioners. Yang Zhenfang (from Mengyin County, detention period: 3 years) leads, Zang Xiyong, Xiong Xianyong, Qiu Renzi, Liu Zhensong, Yang Yufeng, Li Yitang, Cheng Zhongming, and Sun Zhonglong work as a team to "transform" practitioners by garbling Falun Gong teachings. Videotapes defaming Falun Gong are played every day, and practitioners are forcibly brainwashed.

Newly arrived practitioners always receive personal deliveries, including meals and water, from those in charge of brainwashing them. They surround each practitioner in a group of three. They keep brainwashing the practitioners with their evil ideas. After one month, if the practitioner is still unwilling to give up Falun Gong, they will start physical punishments. Normally, they will lock the practitioner in the bathroom and lie to the other people by claiming that the bathroom is locked to save water.

Xiong Xianyong is a convert from Weifang City. With guards' permission, Xiong severely tortures Falun Gong practitioner with cruel methods. Xiong made Falun Gong practitioner Wei Guozhen stand for seven days, until his hands and feet were swollen. Li Fujiang was forced to squat for 7 days in a small brick area. Wu Bo was sleep deprived for 15 days. If practitioners still refused to renounce Falun Gong, they would be transferred to the "strict treatment" class (the 10th class). There, they are forced to sit without any motion for an entire day. They must wake up one hour earlier and go to sleep one hour later than other detainees.

We admonish people still persecuting Falun Gong: do not sacrifice your future for present benefits from the CCP. We also admonish the converts: do not unwittingly abet the CCP; you should rationally and soberly walk a righteous path.
