(Minghui.org) A 72-year-old woman was deprived of sleep for four days and force-fed in a brainwashing center for practicing Falun Gong.

Falun Gong, also known as Falun Dafa, is a spiritual discipline that has been persecuted by the Chinese communist regime since 1999.

Ms. Li Yuzhen of Wuhan City, Hubei Province, was arrested at home on June 6, 2021, by two Qianchuanjie Police Station officers. She was taken to the Wangjiahe Brainwashing Center and held in a dark room on the second floor.

The guards forced her to watch videos slandering Falun Gong and ordered her to write statements to renounce Falun Gong. She refused to comply and held a hunger strike to protest. The guards took turns watching her and didn’t let her sleep for four days. She was also forced to stand at times. On the fifth day, the guards force-fed her. She was in great pain. She rolled her eyes and almost died.
