The Suffering in Panjin Labour Camp

In Liaoning Province, the Panjin City Forced Labour Camp Brutally Tortures Dafa Practitioners

Under the instigation of Jiang Zemin's group, the Panjin City Forced Labour Camp imposed severe acts of persecution against illegally detained Falun Dafa practitioners. What these practitioners have suffered and endured is beyond imagination.

In addition to suffering the cruel physical tortures, practitioners had to endure forced brainwashing for more than 10 hours a day. The prison guards exhausted all available means to force practitioners to give up their belief in their right to practice Falun Dafa. As a result, the guards attempted to physically devastate their bodies and crush their spirit. When all other means failed, the persecutors even illegally added new torture instruments without authorization. They felt that the police clubs and electrical batons were insufficient to vent their vile nature, and even beat up practitioners at will using a long, thick and heavy wooden pickaxe handle that is only used for farming. Usually four to five guards took turns administering the beatings.

Practitioners refused to cooperate with the lawless guards and refused to be brainwashed. This irritated the division chief Tang Xiaobiao, who used a pickaxe handle to brutally beat practitioners up to 16 times, causing the practitioners to lose consciousness. But when those practitioners were revived after fainting the guards would then hang them up in the iron cage with handcuffs (with it practitioners cannot stand or squat, it is a torture instrument specially designed for persecuting Falun Gong practitioners). Two were hung for 11 days. Another was hung for 9 days, during which he was deprived of sleep for 6 days, and was given only one meal a day.

Yin Baowen, not fearing the violence, resolutely took away the posters that slandered Falun Dafa and Teacher Li. The division chief Tang Xiaobiao, prison guard Chen Changli and other 4 or 5 other guards beat Yin Baowen almost to death, and then hung him up in the iron cage with handcuffs for 7 days. Everyday he was only given a piece of small cornbread. All in all he has been hung in the iron cage for more than 20 days. Once he had been hung for 9 days and was not allowed to sleep at all, resulting in his feet and legs being seriously swollen and he had difficulty walking.
Liu Guangqing, Xin Minduo, Yin Baowen and other practitioners were brutally beaten, suffocated with smoke, force fed with alcohol [note: practitioners do not drink alcohol as it interferes with the meditation practice.] and tortured in all kinds of ways for not complying with the orders of the guards.

Practitioner Gao Dong had suffered all this brutal treatment, and has been on a hunger strike for over 70 days in order to resist the persecution. He has been tortured so much his body is misshapen.

Practitioners were forced to sit on a wooden stools up to 17 or 18 hours every day, from 4:00 a.m. to 9:00 or 10:00 p.m. Because of this, their buttocks developed raw sores that were blistered and bleeding. Sitting for such a long time made some practitioners have difficulty urinating and defecating.

Guo Yanliang was brutally beaten many times, locked up in a very small cell, cuffed and hung up, tied with sticks clamped between his legs.

Because the news is strictly blocked, right now we cannot know everything that happened here. The situation in the women's ward is even worse than that of the men's. The miserable cries could be heard frequently, but the details of what is occurring there have not yet been exposed! We only know that whenever the guards carried out their brutal tortures, they turned the volume of the cassette player to maximum in order to cover their crimes.

Practitioners in Panjin City strongly call on people all over the world who honour justice, to realize what is going on, and give their support to help these kind-hearted Falun Dafa practitioners get their freedom as soon as possible.
