(Minghui.org) Mr. Zhou Xiangyang has been on a hunger strike for over 370 days to protest being persecuted for his belief in Falun Gong. He has been force-fed and handcuffed behind his back. He was arrested in March 2015 and is being held at the Dongli Detention Center in Tianjin.

The guards thrust a tube up his nose and into his stomach. They didn't pull the tube out after the force feeding so that it would be convenient for them when they do it again later.

When Mr. Zhou pulled the tube out, the guards cuffed his hands behind his back for a long time, injuring his shoulder.

Mr. Zhou's parents have submitted their appeal to the procurator who works in the detention center.

Mr. Zhou used to be an engineer at the Tianjin Third Railway Exploration and Design Institute. He was sentenced to nine years in prison in May 2003 for practicing Falun Gong and was severely tortured.
