(Clearwisdom.net) Falun Gong practitioner Mr. Meng Longhua, 60 years old, is a retired worker from the Deyang Refractories Factory in Sichuan Province. On July 2, 2005, he was arrested and sent to the Xinhua Labor Camp in Mianyang, Sichuan Province. He has been brutally persecuted by guards and by inmates under the instigation of guards. As a result, he has lost his hearing, and his throat and mouth have been injured. He has been injured both physically and mentally.
On August 17, 2007, when some guards slandered Falun Dafa and Master in front of everyone, Mr. Meng shouted "Falun Dafa is good! Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good!" Subsequently, the guards started to torture Mr. Meng even more. Conspiring with Deyang Refractories Factory, they stopped Mr. Meng's pension to cut off his source of income.
Guard Zhang Xiaogang and a guard whose family name is Yang forced Mr. Meng to wear a winter coat and facial mask with handcuffs and a heavy hat during the July and August hot summer season. He was not allowed to take them off even at night. He was not allowed to touch any part of his body even if it itched. Several inmates took turns monitoring him. Mr. Meng is often locked in a small cell. He has been shocked with electric batons. His term has been extended for three months.
In 2006, Mr. Meng shouted "Falun Dafa is good!" several times. Guards Zhang Xiaogang, Yang, and others tied him up and locked him in a small cell. In August 2006 he was beaten and humiliated. As a result of long term persecution, his body is covered with bruises. The blood vessels on his legs are deformed due to physical abuse.
Before practicing Falun Gong, Mr. Meng suffered from heart and liver ailments. While in the hospital, he learned Falun Dafa. After practicing Falun Dafa, he recovered from the illnesses. He changed his bad temper and became very considerate, always helping others. Everyone in the factory noticed the change.
In December 1999 Mr. Meng went to Beijing to speak out on behalf of Falun Dafa. He was brought back by staff from the factory. He was detained for 15 days, and fined 2000 yuan. Mr. Meng went to the local police station to clarify the truth about Falun Gong, and gave the police materials about Falun Gong. He asked the police not to persecute Falun Gong. Mr. Meng was sent to a detention center for this. His home has been ransacked over ten times. He was monitored by the local 610 Office, and his phone has been tapped since 1999.
In June 2005, the Communist Party started a persecution campaign to force every Falun Gong practitioner to write a so-called guarantee statement. They declared they would send Mr. Meng to jail. Earlier in July, Mr. Meng was arrested while he was clarifying the truth about Falun Gong in the market. He continues to practice Falun Gong despite the torture at the Xinhua Labor Camp.
