(Clearwisdom.net) Falun Gong practitioner Ms. Li Yanhui was arrested at 4:00 a.m. on July 4, 2011.

She was detained there for 21 days, then transferred to the Xinglongshan Brainwashing Center in Changchun City.
1. Persecuted at the Jiwei Guest House Brainwashing Center in Yushu City
On July 4, 2011, Bahao Town Police Station head Zhao Wenfeng, along with Officer Li Wei and driver Liu Haifeng, collaborated with approximately ten police officers from the town government comprehensive management office, and 610 Office agents Fang Rongchao and Lin Shujun. The perpetrators came to Ms. Li's home in two police vehicles. They climbed over a wall and entered Ms. Li's courtyard, ransacked her home, and took her to the Jingwei Guest House Brainwashing Center.
Practitioners were forced to watch videos slandering Falun Dafa each day for nearly two weeks before 610 Office head Li Fenglin decided to step up the persecution, and use harsher measures. About five people were ordered to grab practitioners' hands and force them to vilify Master Li in writing, using this despicable means to try to "reform" the practitioners.
Ms. Li held a hunger strike to resist the brainwashing, so on July 24, Li Fenglin called for three nurses from a Chinese medicine hospital to force feed her. When Ms. Li refused to comply, the perpetrators twisted her arms so harshly that they swelled and her bones were injured. Ms. Li kicked so hard to resist being persecuted, that the plaster wall cracked. Li Fenglin forced her to pay 200 yuan for the damage, otherwise he threatened that her husband would be fired from his job.
On July 29, Ms. Li's daughter and niece went to the Jingwei Brainwashing Center, and stood outside the gate demanding her release. Domestic Security Division deputy head Yang Shucai and others arrested them and took them to the Zhengyang Police Station. The two had 400 yuan extorted from them before being released.
2. Persecuted at the Xinglongshan Brainwashing Center in Changchun City
Ms. Li was later transferred to the Xinglongshan Brainwashing Center in Changchun City where she was placed under a 15-day intensified “reform” session. The following is an account of the abuse to which Ms. Li was subjected.
Ms. Li was forced to watch videos that slandered Falun Gong, and are inculcated with evil and crooked theories. Guard Shen Hongquan applied psychological tactics while attempting to brainwash Ms. Li. He started out by saying, “You're not worthy of being a Falun Gong practitioner. You are here because you didn't cultivate well.” He kept repeating, “You're not worthy of being a Falun Gong practitioner.” Each time he concluded by saying, “You're not a practitioner, you're nothing more than a Falun Gong fan!” He used these tactics step by step, trying to twist Ms. Li's thinking, and force her to give up her belief in Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance.
