Persecution of Falun Gong Practitioners in Changsha Women's Prison
(Clearwisdom.net) Female Falun Dafa practitioners from all over Hunan Province are detained in Changsha Women's Prison. Practitioners who were illegally sentenced to three or more years in prison are detained in wards one and two of Division No. 6 in this prison. (The original name was Education and Transformation teams one and two.)
After Falun Gong practitioners are detained, guards and inmates force them to watch and listen to the CCP's slander of Falun Gong. After the guards brainwash the criminal prisoners with lies, they instruct them to violently persecute Falun Gong practitioners with the incentive of reduced prison terms. In addition to the guards torturing Falun Gong practitioners, two criminals are assigned to monitor each practitioner 24 hours a day. Practitioners are not allowed to study or practice Falun Gong, make contact with other practitioners, talk or exchange any material. The guards set very strict limitations on the practitioners' daily lives, washing and even restroom usage. They beat and physically punish practitioners at will.
There are various means to torture Falun Gong practitioners in the Changsha Women's Prison. New arrivals and those who refuse to give up their beliefs are detained on one floor (formerly the top floor of the prison cafeteria.) Each practitioner is detained in one room, totally isolated from the outside. He or she can only use the restroom and wash alone, with no communication or visits from relatives. The guards and the personal monitors force practitioners who refuse to give up their belief to stand facing the wall for a long time, including during meals. The starting duration of forced standing is from 6 a.m. to midnight, and then it is gradually extended to 4 a.m. the next day. They can sleep only until the personal monitor forces them to get up at 5 a.m. Practitioners are only allowed to use the restroom three times a day and only five minutes each time. The personal monitor then pulls them out of the restroom whether they are done or not. Some practitioners stood in the cold with wet pants. If they use a bowl to hold their urine, the monitors pour the urine on the practitioners' bed. If they soil their pants, the monitors force them to wash their clothes during their limited sleeping time.
If they still refuse to give up their beliefs, the monitors torture them with various brutal means, such as hanging them up, electric shock, forcing them to wear very tight clothes and sitting on a bench. The police shout, “Once you step into this room, you have no choice but to give up your beliefs.” Some practitioners were punished to stand for weeks. Their feet became swollen and they almost fainted from the long hours of standing. Some practitioners were tortured to the point where they had broken fingers or lost teeth. Once, Falun Gong practitioners called out, “Falun Dafa is good!” and the personal monitor blocked their mouths with pads or dirty rags. When practitioners refuse to stand or go on hunger strike, the guards and personal monitors brutally torture them until they are black and blue with bodily injuries, and then they claimed the practitioners are sick. They drag the practitioners to the clinic for injections (containing drugs).They are also forcibly injected with nerve-damaging and other harmful drugs, causing mental disorders and physical discomfort. As a result, practitioners suffer dementia or severe morbidity. Then guards take pictures to send to the practitioner's home or local “610” office, claiming the practitioner is sick, in order to shirk responsibility in case he/she is persecuted to death in the prison.
The prison guards are afraid of the brutal persecution being exposed, and strictly control communication between the practitioners.
