Brainwashing

  • Exposing the Brainwashing Centre at the Jingzhouyuan Hotel in Dahao Village, Tongzhou District, Beijing

    The Jingzhouyuan Hotel is a place the rich and powerful often visit to entertain others and to have fun. However, this building is also the site of a private prison the Chinese Communists use to detain and to brainwash Falun Gong practitioners. For each suite of the hotel there are typically three security guards, two medical professionals, and two “assistants.” The assistants are often former practitioners who were brainwashed. They often pretend to care about the practitioners, keeping them company and chatting with them. However, they deftly use brainwashing techniques to interfere with the practitioners' belief in Falun Gong, while the threat of brutality is ever present from the guards and medical staff.
  • Exposing the Chinese Communist Party's (CCP) Moving of a Brainwashing Centre in Pi County, Sichuan Province

    The Chinese Communist Party (CCP) Committee of Pi County in Sichuan Province have taken part in severely persecuting Falun Gong practitioners since July 20th, 1999. Originally, a brainwashing centre was established at the county detention centre where practitioners were routinely and severely persecuted. Sometimes up to ninety practitioners were detained in the facility. The CCP secretly had to relocate their brainwashing centre to an abandoned school in Bolin Village, Deyuan Town in 2008, in order to avoid national and international attention.
  • Inside Story of the Nanchong City Brainwashing Centre of Sichuan Province

    The “Nanchong Law Education Centre” is a secret brainwashing facility that targets Falun Gong practitioners. The "assistants" brainwash and deceive practitioners into giving up their belief; force practitioners to write so-called guarantee statements to give up the practice; force practitioners to hand copy articles and books that slander Falun Gong, and to watch slanderous video programmes; punish practitioners if they refuse to be "transformed" [forcibly renounce Falun Gong] by depriving them of sleep, forcing them to sit on the floor without moving, torture and weakening the practitioners' will, or threatening them with forced labour.
  • Crimes Committed by Chinese Communist Party Officials in Hubei Province “Legal Education Centre”

    The following are some of the torture methods used in Hubei Province “Legal Education Centre”, a brainwashing centre: standing for long times, handcuffing and hanging up, shocking with electric batons, hitting against the wall, violent beatings, and more. Police officers or a gang of thugs violently beat practitioners there every day. The most commonly used tactics are: grabbing a practitioner's hair while slapping him or her in the face; hitting them on the head; hitting the person against the wall and choking him or her; kicking the feet, treading on the feet; slapping the person's mouth with a broom; and beatings with various implements.
  • Chinese Communist Party (CCP) Tricks at a So-called “Law Education Centre” in Haidian District, Beijing

    The “Law Education Centre” in Haidian District, Beijing is a place the 610 Office (an organisation of special agents just for persecuting Falun Gong) uses to brainwash practitioners. On July 7th, 2010, I was taken into custody by the director of the 610 Office in Haidian, a policeman, and someone from our community committee. I was taken to Beijing Haidian District Law Education Centre. I knew it was a place for brainwashing practitioners. Three women brainwashed me together, and used deceitful methods to fool me. Brainwashing methods included playing videos attacking Falun Gong. One person would talk with me, another constantly stared at me, and the third sat to the side, watching. Studying the Falun Gong teachings or doing the exercises was forbidden.
  • More than Twenty Falun Gong Practitioners from Chengdu City Detained and Subjected to Brainwashing

    Recently, the 610 Office (an organisation of special agents just for persecuting Falun Gong) of Chengdu ordered neighbourhood associations to harass and detain Falun Gong practitioners. At least 20 practitioners have been detained in the past two months. Some of them were directly sent to a brainwashing centre to force them to give up Falun Gong. The whereabouts of the others are unknown. Many more practitioners and their family members have been threatened and harassed.
  • Ms. Liu Xinyu Recounts Chinese Communist Party (CCP) Brainwashing and “Transformation”

    To my regret, I left Falun Gong cultivation for almost two years, between June 2001 and February 2003. That was the time when the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) agents “transformed” [forcibly renounce Falun Gong] me. I was detained at Chongqing Maojiashan Women's Forced Labour Camp, where I was brainwashed with information that defamed Falun Gong, force fed, forced to stand all night long, and beaten brutally. I was subjected to torture, humiliation and mistreatment. I was sometimes hung up by handcuffs. The cruellest torture was “carrying a sword behind the back.” One hand was pulled down over the shoulder behind the back, and the other hand pulled up from the waist behind the back then handcuffed to the other hand. The pain was unbearable.
  • Ms. Wang Yijin of Shanghai Suffers Persecution at Qingpu Brainwashing Centre

    The Chinese Communist Party (CCP) 610 Offices (an organisation of special agents just for persecuting Falun Gong) across China have established countless brainwashing centres to persecute Falun Gong practitioners. Ms. Wang Yijin from Chongming County of Shanghai was forced to undergo mental torture for 87 days at the Qingpu Brainwashing Centre, which is typical of the many brainwashing centres across China.
  • Lifting the Veil Covering the Chinese Communist Party's (CCP) Methods of Brainwashing Falun Gong Practitioners

    Since the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) began openly persecuting Falun Gong on July 20th, 1999, it has made “reforming” [forcibly renounce Falun Gong] a top priority. As such, numerous brainwashing facilities have been set up to carry out forced brainwashing. The brainwashing centre is securely guarded. There is no break time, and those who refuse to "reform" [forcibly renounce Falun Gong] are essentially serving a life sentence. Many practitioners were kind hearted people to begin with and had never been detained before. When suddenly held in solitary confinement cells and completely cut off from the outside world, they feel unbearable mental pressure. As a result, some develop fear, experience depression, and feel hopeless, as if “reformation” is the only way out.
  • Seven Falun Gong Practitioners Brutally Tortured in Brainwashing Centre at Zhaoyuan City, Shandong Province

    Seven Falun Gong practitioners from Zhaoyuan City, were arrested by the 610 Office (an organisation of special agents just for persecuting Falun Gong). They were held in the Lingnan Gold Mine Brainwashing Centre in Linglong Town, Shandong Province. Each of these seven practitioners had been locked in a single cell for long periods of time. They each suffered varying-degrees of abuse, beatings, forced confessions, and mental torture. Their families are not allowed to visit them.
  • In China, Millions Targeted for Brainwashing

    The Chinese Communist Party (CCP) is rolling out a new campaign that seeks to forcibly “transform” [forcibly renounce Falun Gong] the minds of Falun Gong believers in China. It will go for three years, involve millions of people, and cost billions of dollars, according to Party documents available online and a recent analysis by a Falun Gong human rights group.
  • The Chinese Communist Party (CCP) Reproduced the "Tiananmen Self-Immolation" Video to Brainwash Practitioners

    In July and August, the CCP 610 Office (an organisation of special agents just for persecuting Falun Gong) of Luzhou City, Sichuan Province, set up brainwashing centres in Luzhou's Nasi District and Gulan County. They repackaged old propaganda materials--whose flaws have already been exposed--to try and force arrested Falun Gong practitioners to "study" them. As one example, they have used the incident of "Fu Yibin killing his wife." When Fu Yibin appeared on television, he was confused, contradicted himself, and kept shaking. It was later revealed that he was not a practitioner and was mentally ill. The Chinese Communist Party (CCP) used him to make Falun Gong practitioners look bad, but he was discovered to be a fraud.
  • Falun Gong Practitioners Relentlessly Persecuted Under the "Healthy Influence of Education"

    Under the facade of kindness, the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) has come up with a new method of persecuting Falun Gong practitioners. In September 2010, the police held a "Legal System Education Session" (actually a brainwashing centre) to "transform" [forcibly renounce Falun Gong] Falun Gong practitioners. They used a method called the "Healthy Influence of Education." Living conditions are slightly improved than a detention centre, however, the fundamental objective is still the same-- the authorities still try all means to force Falun Gong practitioners to write statements to give up practising Falun Gong, and they threaten to send practitioners to detention centres and to sentence them to prison if they refuse to co-operate.
  • Crimes at the Xinjin Brainwashing Centre in Sichuan Province

    Ms. Liu Hui is 38 years old and was held at the Chengdu Women's Prison for four years until October 11th, 2006. Then she was taken to the Xinjin Brainwashing Centre. She resisted the centre's attempts to get her to give up her faith, despite section head Hu verbally abusing her, and staff member He Chengyan dragging and brutally beating her. She went on a hunger strike upon learning that the food was laced with poisonous substances. Yang Liuqing savagely force-fed her and injured her with a metal mouth-opening device, making her bleed onto her clothes.
  • Euphemistically Referred to as the "House of Love" by Corrupt Authorities, Nanjing Brainwashing Centre Continues to Cause Much Harm

    The "House of Love" (a private brainwashing centre) is still doing its utmost to poison people against Falun Gong. With false compassion, this centre controls a group of so-called volunteers and collaborators, who are being used to brainwash and persecute Falun Gong practitioners. So-called "experts," such as Tang Guofang, the education head of the Jiangsu Province Forced Labour Bureau, and Lu Yangchun from Nanjing Culture Bureau have brainwashed the collaborators, who are former practitioners "transformed" [forcibly renounce Falun Gong] into "consultants" at the "House of Love." Their job is to implement the "brainwashing experience" and force Falun Gong practitioners to renounce practising Falun Gong.
