Sujiatun, No Longer Just a Name (Photos)

Some names, because of their history, become much more than just simple words, but painful reminders of tragic events. After what the Nazi's did, "Auschwitz" is no longer "just a place in Poland," and in Russia, the word "Gulag" carries profound meaning. And now, people will soon remember the name of a place in China - Sujiatun - in the same way. The Chinese Communist Party's (CCP)'s horrifying, inhuman crimes in persecuting Falun Gong practitioners have turned Sujiatun into much more than just the name of a district in Shenyang City. These names will now forever be connected with the some of the most notorious crimes in human history.

On March 8th, 2006, a former CCP agent revealed that there is a secret concentration camp located in the Sujiatun District of Shenyang City, Liaoning Province that specially detains Falun Dafa practitioners. The camp is equipped with a crematorium and houses many doctors. As of 2003, there have been six thousand Falun Dafa practitioners admitted, with none ever being released. Further investigation showed that the CCP concentrate steadfast Falun Dafa practitioners here, torture them, harvest their organs when they are still alive, sell the organs for huge profits, and cremate the bodies to destroy evidence. Due to the extreme cruelty required, many hospital staff involved suffer from psychological problems, insomnia, and nightmares. The great pressure has led to some of them to resort to visiting prostitutes, while some have committed suicide.

Maybe kind-hearted people have a hard time accepting such a horrible scene or believing that these things are actually happening. Let us review the history of World War II. Starting from 1942, some organisations reported the existence of the Auschwitz death camp. Maybe due to the fact that it was too inconceivable, governments of other countries did not believe it. It was not until 1943, when enough information was exposed, that England and the United States began to be convinced that it was not a common prison, but a "murder factory." But at first, people chose not to believe what turned out to be the facts.

The inhumanity of the CCP may well surpass that of the Nazis. Six days ago, the Sujiatun Concentration Camp was exposed, and the CCP media has not dared to make a single sound yet. The Foreign Ministry has not protested, nor has the Xinhua News Agency issued some cover story. In order to preserve the CCP officials' personal interests, they are keeping a shameful silence.

The atrocities that happened in Auschwitz took place more than sixty years ago. People still shudder when they see photos of what went on there. One soldier wrote in his autobiography, "After entering the Camp, we were frozen by the scene. Wires were everywhere, none of the prisoners could walk, and they were as thin as skeletons and ghosts! They helped each other when trying to stand up, tried to talk to us..."

Survivors in a Nazi concentration camp Falun Dafa practitioner Ms. Wang Xia was tortured until she was emaciated in the Hohhot City Women's Prison (photos taken in July 2004)


Ms. Wang Xia was 32 years old and lived in Linhe City, Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region. Because she refused to give up her faith in Falun Dafa, she was tortured for long periods of time in the Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region First Women's Prison, located in Hohhot City. Inhuman means such as brutal beatings, electric baton shocks, prodding the vagina with a broomstick, digging pins into her finger nails, and burning her skin with open flames were employed.


Ms. Wang Xia went on hunger strikes to protest, and she was finally sent to a mental hospital for further torture, causing her to lose her memory. She was a beautiful lady weighing 120-some pounds before entering the prison. On June 24th, 2004, when she was carried out, she weighed only 44 pounds. She could not move around on her own, had lost her memory, and was in a vegetative state. The CCP gave up on brainwashing her and hoped that she would die in her home. Ms. Wang Xia miraculously survived, but soon after the CCP put her in prison again.

One week before Mr. Wu Chunlong was tortured to death

Falun Dafa practitioner Mr. Wu Chunlong, 30, lived in Jiamusi City, Heilongjiang Province. He was tortured in Jiamusi Labour Camp with sitting on the Tiger Bench1. When he went on hunger strike, the guards force-fed him with unknown drugs. Only a few days later, Mr. Wu Chunlong appeared unconscious. He was very thin. On April 30th, 2005, the labour camp sent him home when he was near death. He died at 2 a.m. on August 20th, 2005.

Ms. Gao Rongrong was tortured on May 7th, 2004 with electric baton shocks, and her face was horribly scarred. The photos were taken ten days after the torture.

Falun Dafa practitioner Ms. Gao Rongrong was 37 years old and lived in Shenyang City, Liaoning Province. She was locked in the Liaoning Province Longshan Labour Camp because she continued to practise Falun Dafa. On May 7th, 2004, prison guards Tang Yubao and Jiang Zhaohua shocked Ms. Gao Rongrong with electric batons for nearly seven hours. This severely disfigured her face. On October 5th, 2004, Ms. Gao Rongrong escaped police custody in the hospital and exposed the evildoings, but she was arrested again soon after and secretly locked in Masanjia Labour Camp.

On June 16th, 2005, after further brutal torture, Ms. Gao Rongrong died in emergency of the First Affiliated Hospital of the China Medical University in Shenyang City.


Unconscionable Atrocities

The CCP not only physically and mentally tortures Falun Dafa practitioners, but also murders them and sells their bodily organs for huge profits when none of the torture methods lead them to recant their beliefs. They harvest the organs when practitioners are still alive and then cremate the bodies to destroy the evidence. Such demonic behaviour offends both heaven and earth!

The illegal harvest and theft of Falun Dafa practitioners' organs is not news to us. Based on confirmed reports by the Minghui website, in 2001, many murdered Falun Dafa practitioners' bodies had their organs removed, and the bodies were immediately cremated. A man (non-practitioner) that used to be detained in the Baiyun District Drug-rehabilitation Centre in Guangzhou City, Guangdong Province revealed that in 2001, he witnessed several drug addict prisoners beating a Falun Dafa practitioner. The centre's doctor that was standing nearby said, "Don't hit him in the kidney. The kidneys are very useful."

In February 2001, Falun Dafa practitioner Mr. Ren Pengwu from Harbin City was tortured to death in the Hulan County Second Detention Centre. Without his family's consent, his organs were removed, and his body was forcefully and hastily cremated. Policemen forbade his family members to take any pictures of his body.

In July 2001, Falun Dafa practitioner Ms. Yang Ruiyu was arrested from her workplace and tortured to death only three days later. Policemen did not allow her family members to speak out, did not allow her husband or daughter to go near her body, and did not allow her friends see the body. Policemen escorted her body to the crematorium and made sure that it was cremated immediately, but witnesses said there was a fist-sized hole where her kidney was.

The horrifying crimes of the CCP have been exposed through people of conscience. We are sad to see that under CCP rule, so few Chinese people are brave enough to speak the truth. They are terrified by the fact that the CCP's political movements have killed more than 80 million people over the years. Besides Sujiatun, how many crimes are still hidden?

As the world remained silent when the Nazis committed genocide against Jews, the silence encouraged the evil to challenge human conscience and emboldened it to go further and further.

Let us face the CCP's evil crimes against humanity and act according to our conscience. Every one of us is facing the choice of good and evil once again. Nine million people have withdrawn from the CCP and its affiliated organisations. The exposure of the Sujiatun Concentration Camp has provided another opportunity for the world's people to see clearly the true nature of the CCP. From now on, the name Sujiatun will exist in infamy.


Note

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.
