Barbaric Abuse of Practitioners Inside Sanshui Women's Forced Labour Camp in Guangdong Province

The Sanshui Women's Forced Labour Camp utilises brutal methods to force Falun Gong practitioners to "transform1". The guards usually lock the practitioner in a small cell and disallow all contact. Even taking a walk in the small cell requires authorisation from the guards, not to mention other activities. There is no freedom in the forced labour camp, yet practitioners have to endure even more inhumane persecution and suffering in the small cell.

Between two and six guards monitor practitioners around the clock, along with two prisoners (normally drug addicts).

The guards torture practitioners physically and mentally. Mental torture includes deprivation of sleep for extended periods, not allowing the practitioner to close their eyes. If they do, the guards will incite prisoners to prick the practitioner's eyelid with a toothpick, then wipe their eyes with irritating oil and a wet towel. Sometimes, they even force practitioners to watch video fabricated by the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) which slanders Falun Gong and its founder, infuses Communist Party culture, and attempts to poison practitioners' minds. Practitioners are then forced to write a review and transformation material, with content that meets the guards' requirements. If their writing is not acceptable, guards force them to re-write the documents.

Physical torture includes long-term standing and squatting. The movements must match the guards' requirements, otherwise practitioners are beaten and kicked, or tied to fixed objects such as a clothes rack, forced to take a cold shower when the temperature is below zero, and forced administration of unwanted drugs. Additionally, guards force practitioners to memorise prison rules, do bodybuilding exercises, and sing CCP songs, etc. If practitioners do not give up their beliefs, then they may not be allowed to use the toilet or eat. They have to wash the toilet and urinal pot, are confined to a small cell, and taken to a doctor to receive injections. If practitioners shout "Falun Gong is good!" then the monitors stuff their mouths with a dirty cloth or dirty clothes, then scold and beat them. In summary, the guards use various means to make practitioners "transform."

Prison guards don't regard practitioners as human beings, and torture them unscrupulously. In particular, the prison guards, who are to enforce the law, instead break the law themselves, by inciting drug addicts to treat practitioners viciously. Prison guards who "transform" the most practitioners receive opportunities for promotion, so they force practitioners to write "transformation reports," and claim that they are capable of transforming many steadfast practitioners. They use the most shameless means to force practitioners to "transform."

Actually, the prison guards fear exposure of their evil conduct the most. Therefore, anyone knowing the phone numbers of the cadres in the Sanshui Women's Forced Labour Camp should expose them on the Internet, as this may stop the guards' evildoing.
