The Persecution I Was Subjected to at the Xuzhou Mental Hospital in Jiangsu Province
(Clearwisdom.net) After the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) began its persecution of Falun Gong in July 1999, I was taken to detention centers and forced labor camps several times. In 2001, local 610 Office agents sent several practitioners (including me) to the Xuzhou Mental Hospital. We were injected with unknown drugs as soon as we arrived. The drugs made us feel ill, flustered, and agitated. At night, the doctors ordered us to lie in bed all night long without moving. Anyone who did not obey the order was tied to the bed and injected with additional drugs.
Torture re-enactment: Forced drug injection
While we were in the mental hospital, we were often forced to take pills or injected with drugs. Every time we were given pills, the nurse opened our mouths with chopsticks to see if the pills had really been swallowed. We did not know what kinds of drugs they were, but every time after taking pills or being given injections, we were unable to eat and drooled incessantly. Many people’s mouths and eyes were affected. Their eyes became dull and their stiffened tongues protruded. By then, we were nearly in a vegetative state. We were unable to make any sound when we tried to talk and could only communicate through hand gestures. It was an agonizing experience.
While I was being tortured in the mental hospital, my employer was required to pay 1,500 yuan per month to the 610 Office for the cost of my detention.
