Persecution of Ms. Yang Chunyuan in Chongqing Women's Forced Labor Camp
(Clearwisdom.net) Ms. Yang Chunyuan, 40, is a practitioner from Shapingba District in Chongqing City. She was arrested at her home by members of the Chinese Communist Party, and is now being held at Chongqing Women's Forced Labor Camp. As a result of the severe torture she has suffered, she cannot eat, she has difficulty in standing up and her lungs are badly damaged.
When the detainees at the labor camp were all gathered outside on the morning of August 24, 2009, Ms. Yang and another practitioner, Ms. Zhang, shouted, "Falun Dafa is good!" Inmates Wang Xiaoli, Zheng Xiaolan, Chen Zhi and some others, who are used by the guards, attacked the two practitioners and started beating them in front of nearly two hundred detainees. The practitioners had their mouths covered and were brutally beaten until they laid motionless on the ground. Guard Jia Zheng kicked them and accused them of trying to fake their deaths. The two practitioners were then dragged from one end of the wet, muddy field to the other.
In September 2009, guard Chen Yanyan ordered inmates to drag Ms. Yang outside under the scorching sun, where she was thrown to the ground by Hu Hao, Chen Zhi and some other inmates. Hu Hao abused Ms. Yang again in November and forced her to stand with her legs slightly bent for long periods of time.
Guard Liu Bo ordered inmates Hu Hao, Chen Zhi, Chen Shibi and Liu Lina to force-feed Ms. Yang with salty water on November 17, 2009. During December 2009, Ms. Yang was forced to sleep on the floor and was kicked and pushed by inmates Hu Hao, Chen Zhi, Chen Tingting and others. Since then she has suffered from severe pain when she breathes or tries to stand up.
For over a month Ms. Yang was only allowed to sleep for three and a half hours a night. Her illnesses became so severe that she could not eat, and could only drink a packet of soymilk each day. She has made many requests for medical parole, but her requests were ignored.
Ms. Yang was eventually taken for a medical examination and was found to have damaged lungs as a result of the beatings. To conceal the truth of the persecution, camp officials claimed that she had tuberculosis, forced her to wear a face mask every day, and put her in solitary confinement.
Inmate Hu Hao had his sentence reduced by five days for his involvement in persecuting Falun Gong practitioners.
Names of those involved in the persecution:
Team leaders in charge of persecution in the Labor Camp: Chen Yanyan and Tao Xin.
