About 100 Falun Gong Practitioners Still Held in Shijiazhuang Women's Forced Labor Camp
(Clearwisdom.net) In October 2010, there were about 300 Falun Gong practitioners held in Shijiazhuang Women's Forced Labor Camp. Group 1 was dissolved in May 2011. It was the group where practitioners were severely persecuted in secret. Now, three groups remain in the labor camp: groups 2, 3 and 4. On July 5, 29 practitioners were transferred from Tangshan Forced Labor Camp and some practitioners were released from April to July 2011. Now about 100 practitioners remain in the labor camp.
All practitioners and other inmates in Shijiazhuang Forced Labor Camp are still being forced to do slave labor. Ms. Liu Suran and Ms. Feng Ruixue, practitioners from Shijiazhuang, are among them. When the guards forced Ms. Zhou Jinrong, a practitioner from Yi County, Baoding, to participate in the morning training, they instigated the inmates to shove and curse her. They also forced practitioners to sign forms that defamed Falun Dafa every month. Any practitioner who refused to sign the forms would have their term of forced labor extended.
Ms. Zheng Baozhen, a practitioner from Fuping County, Baoding, developed hemiplegia from the serious persecution and she couldn't take care of herself. One time she didn't eat one meal, but group leader Ding Jiajia said that Ms. Zheng hadn't eaten for three days. They tied her hands behind her back. Then, four doctors and three inmates beat her until she passed out. Then they force-fed her.
Group leader Zhang Ning, female, over 30, who was transferred from Tangshan Forced Labor Camp, forced old and weak Falun Gong practitioners to do the slave labor. One inmate shoved Ms. Zheng Baozhen. Her head hit the wall and she fainted immediately. Later group leader Lv Yaqin, female, over 30, who was transferred from Baoding Gaoyang Forced Labor Camp, instigated mentally ill inmate Liu Yanxia, female, 48, from Dingxing County, Baoding, to insult and curse Ms. Zheng. Ms. Zheng is still being held in the labor camp.
Ms. Lu Di, 32, a practitioner from Shijiazhuang, was arrested and sentenced to forced labor. While she was in custody, her mother was involved in a car accident and had to stay in hospital. After Ms. Lu's mother passed away, her father requested the officials in the labor camp allow Ms. Lu to go back home for her mother's funeral; however, the officials refused the request. Lv Yadi instigated Liu Yanxia to put pressure on Ms. Lu and watch her all the time. As a result, Ms. Lu Di felt seriously hurt spiritually. An inmate who was in charge of production couldn't stand anymore. She gave Liu Yanxia a severe beating. Liu Yanxia reported it to the group leader. Lv Yaqin said, “If she (Liu Yanxia) beats you again, then you just go and beat Lu Di.”
