Macheng City Second Detention Center
Huang Jianyong, a Falun Dafa practitioner, lived in the town of Songbu, Macheng City, Hubei Province. He attained Dafa in 1997. In March 2000, he traveled by himself to Beijing to validate and safeguard Falun Dafa, and to appeal the persecution of Falun Gong. Huang had little money when he started his journey, so he had to stop midway and leave the train in order to earn enough money to continue the trip. He did manual labor to purchase the train ticket that would enable him to continue his journey to Beijing. Later, he was arrested and detained for nearly three months at the Macheng No.2 Custodial Center. While detained, the practitioner suffered severe injury caused by the policemen's brutal torture. Due to his injuries, he was sent back home unconditionally and died four days later. Huang was only twenty-eight years old when he died.
