Liaoning Province Practitioners: We Wish to Sue the Head Criminal, Jiang Zemin

To the International Court and World Human Rights Organisation(s):

We Falun Dafa practitioners in Liaoning Province, People's Republic of China, are a group of hundreds of thousands of kind-hearted people who believe in "Truthfulness, Compassion, Tolerance." We want to tell you about the brutal tortures we have suffered during the past three years, and point out that many people have been cruelly murdered and tens of thousands have been brutally tortured. We wish to sue the head criminal, Jiang Zemin, who has directed this murderous persecution.

The experience of each of us Dafa practitioners in Liaoning Province during the past three years is ironclad evidence to what has happened and is still happening. Every one of our practitioners is a powerful witness.

After Teacher Li Hongzhi made Falun Dafa public in 1992, he often came to Liaoning Province to lecture. He has been to Dalian City, Chaoyang City, Fushun City, Jinzhou City, Benxi City, Lingyuan City, Yi County and other places. Wherever Teacher Li arrived, many people began practising Falun Dafa. All Dafa practitioner firmly disciplined themselves strictly according to the principles of "Truthfulness, Compassion, Tolerance" wherever they were, which had a positive effect on raising the morality of society. Furthermore, after practising Dafa, countless people afflicted with illnesses became perfectly healthy without any medical treatment or medication. These people not only saved the provincial government hundreds of millions of Yuan in medical expenses, but the practise of Dafa also brought happiness to their families. However, this great practise, which makes people healthy, teaches people to be good and improves society's morality, has unreasonably suffered attacks from lies and slanders.

Even prior to July 20th, 1999, people at our practise sites were constantly harassed. Regarding this issue, all Dafa practitioners in Liaoning Province were merely exercising the legal rights endowed to every citizen by law under the Chinese Constitution. We also abided by the principle of "Truthfulness, Compassion, Tolerance" by writing letters to government officials at all levels and to top leaders of the nation, in hopes that this issue would be appropriately solved and that our right to believe in "Truthfulness, Compassion, Tolerance" would be returned to us. We never received an answer to our many letters, yet the persecution continued to escalate.

On July 20th, 1999, Jiang's group began the illegal arrest of practise site assistants, followed by large-scale slander and attacks against Falun Gong. At this time, practitioners in Liaoning Province, trusting in their government, successively went to the local leaders and told them the facts about Falun Gong. The local government authorities claimed they couldn't fix the problem because the decision was made by the central government. With no other choice and with a heavy heart, we went to Beijing and tried to clarify the facts about Falun Dafa. We tried to expose the conspiracy of a few thugs through the Appeals Office in Beijing. [A governmental agency established by the Chinese constitution through which citizens can report their grievances or report if their cases have been handled improperly by local officials.]

The results of our sincerity and trust in the government were beatings, arrest, detention, forced labour, and incarceration in mental institutions and prisons. Without any legal grounds and without instituting proper legal procedures, Jiang's group directly sent us to detention centres, labour camps and jails, where we were brutally tortured. The guards beat and kicked us, and used various means of torture, such as the "tiger bench" See illustration on, inserting bamboo slivers into our fingernails, shocking us with electric batons, forcing us to keep squatting, and bend over with our rear ends pointed up and heads down, etc.

They subjected us to sleep deprivation; they poured cold water on us and cursed us through loudspeakers placed right next to our ears; they used pens to write on our bodies; they tied us up. They forced us to stand in the scorching sun during the summer, and did not give us enough food; and in the winter, they stripped us naked and threw us in the snow. Sexual torture also occured [details omitted].

The Masanjia Forced Labour Camp in Shenyang City, Liaoning Province is especially a dark den of demons! Jiang's accomplices, Luo Gan and Liu Jing, went to the Masanjia Labour Camp in person and ordered the evil guards to force Dafa practitioners to give up their faith. If they refused to give up practising Dafa, the thugs would brutally torture them. The thugs even promoted the means of brutal torture used on Dafa practitioners to the entire province and even to the whole nation, creating a sinister and horrific atmosphere in all detention centres, custody centres, labour camps and jails in the province. The sounds of electric batons shocking people and Dafa practitioners' screaming while being tortured could be constantly heard. The smell of burnt flesh from electric batons filled the whole building and Dafa practitioners were tortured to the verge of death.

The guards also forced the practitioners to do slave labour by working them 16 hours a day. Once, guards in the Masanjia Labour Camp forced practitioners to work 36 hours without a break. This long-term physical and psychological torture severely damaged practitioners' mental and physical health. In order to cover up their crimes, Jiang's group strictly blocked all information, and for a long time deprived firm practitioners of their right to family visits. Often these practitioners' families did not even know if their incarcerated loved ones were still alive.

Spurred on by Jiang's inhumane policy, "cut them off financially, destroy them mentally, annihilate them physically; beating to death is nothing and shall be counted as suicide," the vicious police acted with even more cruelty, insanity and without any restraint. Many Dafa practitioners were tortured to death yet the murderers are still free. Jiang's villainous group also used the system of "implication" by persecuting Dafa practitioners' families, which forced many practitioners' spouses to divorce them. Countless families have been broken up. These vicious police pry open the doors to Dafa practitioners' homes at any time and break in; they ransack practitioners' homes at will; they steal practitioners' money and possessions and arrest the practitioners. They are nothing more than robbers and burglars. In order to fulfil their personal interests, the vicious police fine Dafa practitioners without cause, extorting huge sums of money. Some practitioners have been arrested many times and almost all of their money has been stolen by the assessment of "fines." Some were even forced to sell their homes. When the police arrest practitioners, they first search the practitioners and steal all the money they have. During this unprecedented persecution, even 80-year-old practitioners and under-aged children have not been spared. Where is the respect for law? Where is the respect for human dignity?

Right now, within Liaoning Province, countless Dafa practitioners have been forced to leave home and roam about to avoid further persecution. Countless more practitioners are being detained in labour camps, detention centres, jails and brainwashing centres, where they are brutally tortured both physically and mentally. Many of them have lost their lives. Even practitioners who are still able to stay at home are being constantly harassed, monitored and followed by local police. Furthermore, their salaries have been cut off and they have been unreasonably fired.

Therefore, all Dafa practitioners in Liaoning Province, including those who have left home, those who are being tortured in labour camps, or those who are suffering persecution to different degrees wish to sue Jiang Zemin, so the head criminal can receive due punishment, so the good will be protected, and Jiang's attempt to destroy "Truthfulness, Compassion, Tolerance" will be brought to an end.

All Dafa practitioners in Liaoning Province, People's Republic of China, sincerely request the International Court and/or the World Human Rights Organisation(s) to assist the righteous. Stop Jiang's inhuman abuse of "Truth, Compassion, Tolerance" and let the world be filled with peace and love!
