The Horror of Masanjia Women’s Forced Labour Camp

Most people who witness scenes of solitary confinement, hanging by cuffs, electric shock, forced-feeding, beating, tiger bench1, death bed2, prolonged hard labour, or the many other horrifying tortures used against Falun Gong practitioners in China, will definitely feel disturbed. Even the bloodiest scenes in movies or novels cannot compare to such an experience. But all these things are real-life occurrences, and they exist all around us.

On April 7th, 2013, many Chinese media published an article titled “Walking out of Masanjia.” The head commentator and superintendent of the Media Research Division of New Beijing News said that he taped the programme called “The Masanjia Women’s Forced Labour Camp in Liaoning Province Has Become a Human Hell” while trembling amid extreme sorrow. He said he wanted to cry out loud. Even this experienced media professional could hardly endure the shock and emotional impact; one can imagine how terrifying the scenes were.

Many people are familiar with the name Masanjia. As early as 2000, in Hong Kong, when people asked the guards from Masanjia where they were from, they dared not tell the truth. Masanjia was already notorious as the place where guards once stripped 18 female Falun Gong practitioners and threw them into men's cells.

I remember when practitioners told an officer about Masanjia while they were in a police car at Tiananmen Square; the officer could not accept it. He said, “Don’t you all look at me. I had nothing to do with it.”

Why are there so many wicked guards at Masanjia? What has caused it? These evil actions came by order of Jiang Zemin, [former leader of China and instigator of the persecution]: “Death of Falun Gong practitioners from beating is nothing and shall be counted as suicide.” Such base deeds also come from the distortion of human nature by the Chinese Communist Party (CCP). Innumerable torture methods have been created and practiced at Masanjia throughout the persecution of Falun Gong. Now Masanjia has become a synonym for the whole forced labour camp system. Those vicious, cruel guards are all criminals who have disgraced their profession.

The announcement of plans to eliminate the forced labor system does not mean the CCP is improving. This is only a way for it to cover up the true nature of its crimes in order to cope with the increasing amount of criticism both domestic and abroad, and to settle its own internal struggles. The persecution of Falun Gong still continues, and the CCP's trampling of the law is becoming worse. It sentences innocent practitioners heavily and unlawfully puts them into prisons. No matter what the CCP does, its annihilation by heaven is soon to come because it was doomed to perish the moment Jiang Zemin ordered the persecution of Falun Gong in July 1999. Most of its officials have been deceived by the regime, and they do not realize that they will also fall with it when it completely sinks.

The exposure of Masanjia lets people recognize more clearly the CCP’s evilness. Those who thought that the persecution of Falun Gong had nothing to do with them can now see that it is a persecution of all mankind. When so many people closed their eyes to the persecution of Falun Gong, many CCP agents simply sharpened their skills for killing people. Many disasters and murders in society have been perpetrated by those evil agents, and they have lost their humanity in the process of persecuting Falun Gong.

Now the CCP has accelerated its demise. From the surface, the regime is trying to abolish the forced labour system, but the reality is that heaven wants people to recognize the CCP's nature clearly.

No matter whether you are a guard in a forced labour camp or in a prison, it is time that you wake up from the dream that has been created for you. When the crime of persecuting Falun Gong is completely exposed to the world--that is the time heaven will annihilate the CCP. That day is near.


1. "Tiger Bench": Prisoners are forced to sit on a small iron bench that is approximately 20 cm (6 inches) tall with their knees tied together. With their hands tied behind their backs or sometimes placed on their knees, they are forced to sit straight up and look straight ahead without movement for long periods of time.

2. "Death Bed" torture: A practitioner is tied to a bed with his hands handcuffed above his head to the bed rails, and his legs tied with thin nylon ropes. The rope is then tightly wrapped around the practitioner's body and the bed, from his legs to his chest. The rope is wrapped so tightly that the practitioner has difficulty breathing and eventually loses consciousness.
