Name: Bai Qunfang (白群芳)
Address: Wenjiang District, Chengdu City
Date of Most Recent Arrest: September 15, 2010
Most Recent Place of Detention: The Legal Education Center (Brainwashing Center) in Xinjin (新津法制教育中心)
Persecution Suffered: Forced labor, brainwashing, forced injections/drug administration, torture, extortion, home ransacked, detention
(Clearwisdom.net) On September 15, 2010, six domestic security division officers broke through Ms. Bai Qunfang's fence while she was planting seeds and arrested her. The officers took her to the Legal Education Center (a brainwashing center) in Xinjin and pressured her to give up her belief in Falun Dafa. She was brainwashed, injected with unknown drugs, and tortured to the brink of death before she was sent back to her humble home.
On March 1998, Ms. Bai started to practice Falun Dafa. After the persecution began in 1999, she was arrested and imprisoned. On many occasions, she left home to avoid further persecution.
Persecuted by Wenjiang County Detention Center officials
On the morning of January 19, 2000, Ms. Bai and fellow practitioner Ms. Chen Jinhua went to Tiananmen Square to appeal for the right to practice Falun Gong. Police officers immediately surrounded them. One of them hit Ms. Chen in the head with a baton and the other stomped on Ms. Bai's foot.
The two women were taken to Tiantan Police Station, confined in a large house packed with other people, and starved prior to Chengdu authorities taking them back to their hometown.
Ms. Bai and Ms. Chen were held in the county jail for 15 days and in Wenjiang County Detention Center for 32 days. Everyday, they did slave labor in the detention center. They had to pull copper wires out of nine-foot-long electrical cords. Their hands bled from the constant pulling of the copper wire that cut into their flesh. They weren’t fed if they didn’t collect more than six pounds of copper wire a day. The practitioners in the detention center were not allowed to read Falun Gong books or do the exercises. If they did, they would be beaten, handcuffed, shackled, or forced to kneel down.
Persecuted by officials from Hesheng Town
On March 2000, Ms. Bai was released from the Wenjiang County Detention Center. Later, authorities from the Hesheng Town government ordered her to go to a brainwashing center. When she refused to cooperate, the authorities hit her head, back, and soles of her feet with bamboo sticks. Li Yuanhong , a staff member, slapped her until she became dizzy and lost her hearing.
The authorities twisted thick wires into a whip. They had Ms. Bai kneel down and used the whip to hit the bare soles of her feet. It caused her excruciating pain. When the authorities got tired, they put her and her two-year old granddaughter out in the sun and let them stand for hours. The authorities did not spare her granddaughter from standing with her. After Ms. Bai was released, the authorities continued to harass her and search her home. They also “fined” her 15,500 yuan. Finally, she left home to avoid further persecution. She became destitute and homeless.
Police with Guns Searched for Ms. Bai
Ms. Bai and Mr. Yang Jianzhong, her husband, were on the authorities' black list for practicing Falun Dafa. Without reason, the police could arrest and imprison them. The couple left their home and became homeless.
On August 6, 2008, several days before the Beijing Olympics, Mr. Yang went home to get something. It was late in the evening. The police caught him the next day. He was taken to Gongping Police Station. Ms. Bai continued to be homeless.
The Chengdu and Wanjing police wanted to catch Ms. Bai. They mobilized police cars and searched for her in Hesheng Town. All the officers were armed with pistols and searched for her door to door.
On the morning of October 1, 2009, Ms. Bai Qunfang was caught, taken to the Xinjin Brainwashing Center, and tortured.

She fought back, but wasn’t successful. She felt dizzy and uncomfortable. Afterwards, she became unconscious. Approximately 8 pm, she was taken to the Xinjin County Hospital to see a doctor. The doctor asked Wang Xiuqin, a staff member what kind of medicine she was injected with. He kept quiet. Ms. Bai’s face broke out with small bumps and she had symptoms of drug poisoning. She was semi-paralyzed and in critical condition. The doctor gave her some medicine and asked that she be hospitalized. Staff member, Xiuqin refused.
