I recently read a secret notice issued by the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) Committee Guard Office of Gaocheng City, Hebei Province and sent to all relevant work units in every township, town (district) and city. It states the intention to establish a database of practitioners who have not been "transformed"- Implementation of brainwashing and torture in order to force a practitioner to renounce Falun Gong Their intent is to carry out a new round of persecution against Falun Gong. They intend to prevent practitioners from clarifying the truth and enjoying their lawful rights and interests, and it is organising a so-called "educational discussion" to manipulate public opinion against Falun Gong.
The document from the "Guard Office" is written with the usual deceitful techniques employed by the CCP. Let us take a look at what the "Guard Office" truly is, and what it has done privately, behind the scenes.
What is the "Guard Office"?
The complete name of the "Guard Office" in Hebei Province is the "Office for the Prevention and Handling of [slanderous term omitted]" (OPHC), and it is actually a branch of the notorious 6-10 Office - an agency specifically created to persecute Falun Gong, with absolute power over each level of administration in the Party and all other political and judiciary systems.
The 6-10 Office was established on June 10th, 1999, before Jiang Zemin officially initiated the comprehensive persecution of Falun Gong. It is a Gestapo-like agency specifically created to persecute Falun Gong, with absolute power over each level of administration in the Party and all other political and judiciary systems. It is often located within the CCP Politics and Judicial Committee and is mainly directed by Luo Gan. It is responsible for systematically implementing Jiang's policy of "ruin [practitioners'] reputations, bankrupt them financially and destroy them physically."
In 2003, the atrocities of the 6-10 Office were exposed internationally and its officials have been or are being sued in many countries. The CCP has therefore changed the name of the 6-10 Office. The alleged 6-10 offices in all provincial governments have been dissolved, but actually they simply changed the name to "Office for Anti-[slanderous term omitted] Organisations." They continue to operate in the same way. Many local organisations of the 6-10 are now called the OPHC.
The Atrocities of the 6-10 Office and the "Guard Office"
Jiang Zemin issued all secret orders concerning the persecution of Falun Gong through the 6-10 Office. These orders directly accelerated the number of deaths of practitioners from torture and persecution. So far, the verified death toll is at least 1,400 people. Fifty-three percent are women and forty-one percent are elderly people over the age of fifty.
The verified cases of death from the persecution are just the tip of the iceberg, because the CCP strictly blocks information from getting out. Internal statistics of the CCP showed that as early as the end of October of 2001, 1,600 Falun Gong practitioners had died in custody, at least 6,000 people were illegally sentenced to prison, and more than 10,000 were detained in forced labour camps.
Under the direct command of the 6-10 Office, detention centres, forced labour camps and jails throughout China commonly use torture on Falun Gong practitioners in an attempt to force them to renounce their belief and incriminate fellow practitioners. Torture methods include brutal beatings, torture with electric batons and fire, forced sitting, standing, and squatting for long periods of time, sexual abuse, being hung up and tortured, and many other brutal methods. For example, Masanjia Forced Labour Camp in Liaoning pulled off Falun Gong practitioner's clothes on windy and snowy days and handcuffed them outdoors until they lost consciousness from the cold. Longshan Forced Labour Camp in Shenyang continuously tortured beautiful young practitioner Ms. Gao Rongrong with electric batons for nearly seven hours, severely disfiguring her face. Tuanhe Forced Labour Camp personnel in Beijing tortured Heilongjiang practitioner Mr. Lu Changjun so viciously that they broke his vertebra, leaving him paralysed. The CCP and Jiang's regime have used hundreds of unspeakable torture methods on Falun Gong practitioners.
The evildoers of the 6-10 office have even sent many healthy, sane Falun Gong practitioners to mental hospitals and drug rehabilitation centres to be persecuted. There, the practitioners are forcibly given unknown drugs that seriously damage their central nervous systems. The medical staff at the Xuzhou Mental Hospital in Jiangsu have said to the detained Falun Gong practitioners there: "If we don't slowly stop giving you the medicine, you will turn mad and die. Even if you run out of here, others will regard you as insane and have you committed. When the medical reactions happen, the pain is unimaginable, extremely frightening, and the consequences are inconceivable." Cases of persecuting Falun Gong practitioners with "psychopathic therapy" have occurred in 23 provinces, cities and autonomous regions in China.
The 6-10 Office has branches around the country to randomly abduct Falun Gong practitioners into countless brainwashing centres (called by the names of "study class" or "legal education school"). There they force practitioners to accept brainwashing. If the authorities can't achieve their goal with these methods, they then employ various levels of force to compel the practitioner to write a guarantee statement or an "expose and criticise statement." This kind of brainwashing has no purpose but to kill a person's spiritual belief and cause people to live in mental anguish. The pain of the spiritual damage experienced by practitioners is far beyond any physical suffering. Its nature is very brutal.
Under the instigation and command of the central government 6-10 Office, eight million youths from nearly 1,000 communities in 100 cities were deceived into going along with anti-Falun Gong propaganda activities. Through deceitful campaigns, more people were turned into tools for the persecution. At the same time, they also became victims of the persecution. According to available statistics, during the first three years of the persecution, under the command of Jiang Zemin and the 6-10 Office, the media in China fabricated 70,000 articles and reports that slandered Falun Gong. 700,000 hours of slanderous propaganda was aired on television and radio. It spent 7 billion yuan to carry on counter-Falun Gong propaganda campaigns, 700 million yuan to publish comics, cartoons and books against Falun Gong, and used 7 billion labour hours. The most notorious of such anti-Falun Gong activities is the staged "Tiananmen self-immolation incident" in 2001. All evidence reveals that the CCP government brought false charges against Falun Gong through this staged incident, using the state-run media to attack Falun Gong, deceive the masses and instigate hatred both nationally and internationally.
From the aforementioned activities of the 61-0 Office, it is clear that it is an extremely vicious organisation. In order to stop Falun Gong practitioners' belief in "Truthfulness, Compassion, Forbearance," it has not hesitated to use the most evil ways to destroy and torment practitioners, and to deceive people. Its evil acts are too numerous to mention.
The Arm of the Law is Extensive, a Warning to the Perpetrators
In response to this unprecedented and brutal persecution, lawsuits have been filed against the active persecutors of Falun Gong, including the 6-10 Office and the main officials in charge.
Since the first lawsuit was filed in Beijing in August of 2000, Luo Gan, head of the 6-10 Office, has been sued for genocide and crimes of torture in ten countries including China, Belgium, Iceland, Finland, Armenia, Moldova, Spain, Taiwan, Germany, South Korea, and Bolivia. In October of 2002, seven Falun Gong practitioners from six countries jointly filed charges against Luo Gan with the United Nations Commission Against Torture and The United Nations Commission on Human Rights. In January 2004, Luo was listed in the watch list of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP). If he tries to enter Canada, he will be refused a visa, denied entry, even prosecuted in Canada for the "crimes of against humanity" he has perpetrated.
In December of 2002, a criminal lawsuit was filed in France against Li Lanqing, the chief of the 6-10 Office, and the former Premier of China for the crimes of torture committed in persecuting Falun Gong. In July of 2003, a criminal court in France began legal proceedings in this case.
In November of 2004, a Spanish lawyer was entrusted by Falun Gong practitioners to file charges against Zhang Xiaoguang, Zhang Xianlin, Dong Zongfang, and Gao Kuixian, the heads of 6-10 Offices in Heilongjiang, Beijing, Shandong, Jilin Provinces, in the court of Spain for "genocide" and "crimes of torture."
Fearful of international pressure, the CCP changed the name of the 6-10 Office two years ago. Recently, enormous amounts of 6-10 Office-related contents have been deleted from the official website of the CCP. It was reported that a file was found in the Rongchang County CCP Committee office that demands that the title of "County 6-10 Office" not appear externally, and the insignia of the 6-10 Office can't be used in public activities. It is obvious that the 6-10 Office has become notorious and use of its name is shameful.
However, no matter whether it is called the 6-10 or "Guard Office," the title cannot cover up its crimes. The "secret" notice from the "Guard Office" in Gaocheng City, Hebei Province reveals that the CCP has not changed. The so-called "influence of education" is still actually evil mental torture of innocent people, the secret and brutal physical persecution and torture of genuine believers, as well as the impudent and shameless deceit forced on the entire population of China.
History often repeats itself. No matter how the Nazis slandered the Jews and strictly blocked news of the persecution, the real situation of the massacre was eventually exposed. No matter how arrogant the heads of the Gestapo were, they were finally tracked down and sentenced. Even more than 50 years after World War II, the tracking of Nazi war criminals has not stopped. In August 2004, the Federal Court of the United States revoked the American nationality of an 84-year-old resident of Illinois, because he joined the German Nazi Schutzstaffel between July 1943 to the spring of 1945 and held a post in the Schutzstaffel death camp that guarded Sachsenhausen.
It is the same with the persecution of Falun Gong. No matter how aggressive the evildoers are, or how they scheme, the truth about their persecution of Falun Gong will be publicised. No person and no method can stop the march of history.
