(Minghui.org) After the 2012 Chinese New Year, authorities at the Chaoyanggou Forced Labor Camp started a round of intensive persecution and coercion of detained Falun Gong practitioners. Facing various torture methods such as solitary confinement, shocking with electric batons, verbal abuse, and arbitrary term extension, practitioners have been resisting the persecution in a number of ways.
We are calling on people that believe in justice to come forward and help end the persecution.
Practitioner Jia Lizhu has been resisting the persecution soon he was held in the first team. He refused to wear the prison uniform and was severely tortured. Now, he suffers from high blood pressure.
Practitioners Wang Yunliang, Zong Cheng, and Jiang Guangxin who were detained in the second team woke up in the night to send forth righteous thoughts together. Captain He Jianxin, deputy captain Wu Weiguang and guard Qi Xinghua shocked them with electric batons, held them in solitary confinement cells, extended their terms, forced them to do hard labor, and assigned inmates to monitor them.
Torture Reenactment: Shocking with electric batons
On February 7, 2012, practitioner Zong Cheng wrote to different levels of law enforcement entities regarding the facts about Falun Gong and drafted an appeal statement with practitioners Jiang Guangxin, Zhang Guangzhao and Xie Huizhou. He was shocked with an electric baton and locked up in a solitary cell. His labor camp term was extended.
From February 15 to 22, practitioner Zhang Guangzhao did the Falun Gong exercises and was then locked up in solitary confinement.
From January 22 to February 7, practitioner Wang Yunliang kept sending righteous thoughts. The camp guards ordered inmate Song Chengshuang to verbally harass him.
Practitioners Zhu Ruibang, Ma Guohua, Feng Chen, Chi Yaocai, Liu Guochen, and Du Guolin, who are detained in the third team, refused to wear the prison uniform from January 25 to February 7. They were tortured by labor camp officials and guards, including captain Gao Jianhui, political instructor Liu Xiaoyu, deputy captain Zhang Wei, and guards Ji Wenquan, Fan Shenglu, and Sun.
On February 7, practitioner Feng Chen was shocked with an electric baton until his leg was injured.
On February 7, 8, 9, practitioner Zhu Ruibang was shocked with an electric baton for over five hours.
Practitioner Chi Yaocai was slapped in the face over twenty times. His face was swollen and he suffered hypertension the second day.
Practitioner Du Guolin was transferred to the first team where he was tortured.
Guard Gao Zhilu of the first team has been closely adhering to the Chinese Communist Party's policy since July 20, 1999 and has actively participated in the persecution of practitioners. He has been awarded hundreds of thousands of yuan for forcing practitioners to give up practicing Falun Gong. He would read Falun Gong books with practitioners held in the first team section. However, among the books were fake articles that they claimed were written by the Master of Falun Gong. Guard Gao Zhilu also had drawn in the book Zhuan Falun with crayons. He would read a paragraph and then he would distort the meaning and slander Falun Gong. When practitioners refuted what he said, he burst out in anger.
Zhu Jiahui, former deputy head of Chaoyanggou Forced Labor Camp's administration bureau, used to practice Falun Gong. After 1999, he was detained at the labor camp and was brainwashed by guard Gao Zhilu and two female guards that had transferred in from Hunan Province. He renounced Falun Gong and started to participate in the persecution of practitioners. He and Gao Zhilu often visit other places to help local authorities in brainwashing practitioners and forcing them to renounce Falun Gong.
