    On June 3rd, 2013, Falun Gong practitioner Mr. Han Jianping was arrested by police. He was tortured and interrogated at Nongan Police Department. He recounts, "I was held in a dark room and locked onto an iron chair. The head of Domestic Security Division came in and asked, “Who made those banners in your home? Who moved those materials upstairs?” I refused to tell him anything. Then he slapped my face four or five times. Another officer tortured me. My hands were handcuffed behind my back. The young officer pushed my head to the ground and took off my trousers. They used a mop stick to hit my crotch so hard that it swelled as well. It was very painful."
  • A Practitioner's Son Dying from a Brain Tumour, the 610 Office Continues to Persecute Him

    Because Mr. Tian Fengcheng practises Falun Gong, the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) persecutes him. Three years ago he was sentenced to prison. He wasn't allowed to visit his injured wife and sick son during that time. When Mr. Tian was released from prison on April 25th, 2013, he went home to a severely injured wife and a son with brain cancer. The 610 Office (an organisation of special agents just for persecuting Falun Gong) ordered him to attend a brainwashing session, but because his son was severely ill, he didn't go. The 610 Office had him arrested again on September 16th, 2013.
  • Chinese Communist Party (CCP) Agents in Shanghai Employ Cunning Tactics to Force Falun Gong Practitioners to Undergo Brainwashing

    The 610 Office (an organisation of special agents just for persecuting Falun Gong) in Shanghai has been arresting Falun Gong practitioners and taking them to brainwashing centres. To hide what is going on, they often change the location of the brainwashing centre. They also use deceptive means during the sessions. The Baoshan District 610 Office started a brainwashing session in mid September 2013 and called it a class on arranging flowers and cooking. The session actually includes activities like singing the songs that praised the Communist Party and watching videos that slandered Falun Gong.

However, they were arrested by the police on the same day.

  • The Brutal Torture I Endured at Masanjia Forced Labour Camp

    I was arrested in 2005 for posting materials exposing the persecution of Falun Gong in public areas. I was later taken to Masanjia Forced Labour Camp in Liaoning Province. I refused to do slave labour and was thus frequently tortured by the guards, who were very brutal. I began a hunger strike to protest the persecution. Guards pressed hard on my hands, which were shackled to the bed, and forced a tube into me every day. I was in excruciating pain. After a while, my nose, eyes, and face became swollen and they could not push the tube into my nose. Instead they inserted the tube directly into my throat. After force-feeding, I was hung up in a slanted position.

  • Witnessing Prison Guards Persecute Practitioners to Insanity

    I was shocked to learn on the Minghui website about a talented Qinghua University student named Ms. Liu Zhimei. She was persecuted to insanity in a prison under the Chinese communist regime. I witnessed other practitioners being persecuted while I was imprisoned over the last few years. One was 60-year-old Ms. Chen Xiaoyue. Due to the intense persecution, Ms. Chen was “reformed” [forcibly renounce Falun Gong] by the communist regime and gave up her faith in Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance. The police then forced her to help reform other practitioners and torture them if they refused to cooperate. Ms. Chen was later diagnosed with "manic psychosis."

    Ms. Sun Lijun went to Tiananmen Square to peacefully protest the persecution. She recounts her experience: "Several fellow practitioners and I were sent to a police station in Beijing.

Four officer shocked me with electric batons at the same time. They shocked my head, teeth, nipples, private area, hands, and legs. Since I would not give in, they dragged me to the yard and hung me from a pole, with my feet not touching the ground. They hung me outside for a long time in the cold. Then they took me back to the room and hung me up again. They tortured me nonstop."
