Inside the Labour Camps

  • Baimiao Labour Camp: Practitioners Beaten Savagely For Meditating

  • Lanzhou’s Chamber of Horrors

    Practitioners were beaten so badly that injuries covered their bodies. Sometimes they were beaten to the point of losing the ability to take care of themselves. The most typical example is that of a female practitioner named Wang Lianzhen. She needs others to feed her, dress her and help her to the restroom.
  • Women's Forced Labour Camp Brutally Persecutes Falun Dafa Practitioners

    ...guards make use of criminals to use the most vicious methods to persecute Falun Dafa practitioners, such as hanging them up, brutally beating them, forcing them into the "airplane position," detaining them in a solitary compartment, making false charges, forcibly brainwashing them, etc.
  • A Call For Justice

    ...the police officers ordered all the inmates to stop working and instead shout out these slogans while brutally torturing practitioners with wooden clubs, boards and leather belts...[they] were beaten so badly that cuts and bruises covered their bodies.
  • No Mercy Is Shown Towards Female Practitioners In Labour Camps

    I was forced to write statements renouncing Falun Gong right after I arrived there. Anyone who did not write these statements would be deprived of sleep, and the police would take turns trying to brainwash her. In addition, she would be forced to stand for long periods of time facing the wall in a dark, cold hallway, and not allowed to move or sleep. Even meals had to be brought to her by others. Some practitioners were forced to stand for more than twenty days.
  • Witnessing the Horrors of Masanjia Labour Camp

    "I witnessed how Li Jinghua had been persecuted. Without sleeping for 3 days and nights, she was shocked (with electric batons) on the neck, breast, chest, back, foot arches, palms and other sensitive places. She began twitching due to the shocks. Some witnesses cried when they saw the tragic sight."
  • The Smell of Burning Flesh Fills the Air at Beijing's Tuanhe Forced Labour Camp

    The labour camp is changing its torture tactics now. They use "high strength brainwashing" where practitioners are bombarded with anti-Falun Gong messages and subjected to long periods of sleep deprivation. They hope to exhaust practitioners' energy and break down their minds. If practitioners will still not give in, they lock them in the "small cells." A small cell can only fit one bed. A person is tied onto the bed and given only a little food with meagre nutrition..
  • After Their Crimes Were Exposed, Police in Zhengding County Savagely Tortured Falun Gong Practitioners

    ..a corrupt police officer asked Mr. Bai, "Who posted Zhao Fengnian's death on the internet?" and "Where did you get Falun Gong materials?" Not wanting to betray his fellow practitioners, Mr. Bai was brutally beaten and left with ugly wounds and bruises all over his body. He became unconscious.
  • Criminal Deeds of the Vicious Guards from Longshan Labour Camp

    If the practitioners still did not comply after this treatment, the guards would send them to Zhangshi Labour Camp, where male prisoners are imprisoned. They encouraged the male prisoners to continue with even more severe torture. Some female practitioners' hair was torn out in handfuls. Some male prisoners even sexually assaulted the practitioners. They also severely tortured the practitioners physically using torture techniques such as "Jiumeng" and "Shibameng." [Note, from surface meaning, it is 9 and 18 layers of cover, no more detailed information is available for these tortures.]
  • Cruel Treatment of Practitioners at Chongqing Women's Labor Camp

    Over a 3-month period, they have been hanging from handcuffs for nearly a month. During this month alone, once for 5 days, and once for 2 days, they were hung with handcuffs continuously without being released even at night. They were also sorely deprived of sleep. During other times, they were hung during the day, and handcuffed to their beds between midnight and 6 a.m.

  • Brutal Torture of Practitioners in Huanxiling Forced Labour Camp

    On the afternoon of September 25, right after Chen Yutao arrived in the labour camp and was assigned to Team No. 2 of Brigade No. 2, he was shocked with electric batons, beaten and kicked for 3 hours by a group of policemen...
  • Torture and Brainwashing at Shuanghe Forced Labour Camp, Qiqihar

    Female Dafa practitioner Cui Xuemin is a very determined and faithful practitioner, therefore, they cuffed her for 21 days, but even all kinds of torture failed to move her determination to practice. The evil propaganda was unable to deceive her. Finally, she was able to win over the philosophy professor whom the detention centre had invited to brainwash her. After many rounds of brainwashing and attempted thought control, the professor said, "I cannot turn her mind around, if I continue to try to turn her mind around, my mind will be turned around by her!"
  • Practitioners Treated Worse than Animals in Xinkaipu Forced Labour Camp

    There were many solitary confinement cells in the labour camp. Falun Dafa practitioners were taken there if they practiced the Falun Gong exercises or broke one of the inhumane rules the labour camp made up. Before being thrown into these cells, practitioners were stripped almost completely naked. The cells were very dark and small. A person couldn't even stand straight in there. There were many insects in the cell, and the practitioners were badly bitten. Every day, the guards would throw a few chunks of rice on the ground, and the practitioners had to eat with their hands.
