Shenyang Prison Guards' "Poems" and Funeral Songs

Ms. Zhang Zhixin is one of the 80 million individuals the evil Chinese Communist Party (CCP) has slaughtered. Zhang Zhixin's name is well known in China because of her unyielding character and the inhumane tortures she experienced. She was intelligent and beautiful, a very bright lady. The Communist regime had her brutally murdered because she had doubts about the CCP leadership at that time. What shocked me, though, are the "poems" written by the guards in the Shenyang Prison who inhumanely tortured Zhang Zhixin with various methods. Their brazenness is beyond the comprehension and grasp of rational people.

The CCP-ordered savage persecution of Zhang Zhixin included gang rape and cutting her throat. The Liaoning Province Communist Party Committee sentenced her to death. When the public became aware of these acts, she was considered the pride of the era and of the nation. When Zhang Zhixin became the pride of the nation, the guards in Shenyang Prison who had tortured and killed her came to share in Zhang Zhixin's attainments and pride. They covered the prison walls with "poems" that eulogised Zhang Zhixin. They wrote, "You are the CCP's pride. You are the pride of fifty-six nationalities [There were fifty-six nationalities in China].You are the pride of Shenyang Prison... Zhang Zhixin's growth and rise was another great victory of Mao Zedong's 'Thoughts about Reeducation' [Mao was the leader of the CCP at the time]."

Here is the logic they followed: They did not need to feel guilty nor did they need to repent for their persecuting Zhang Zhixin, because without their involvement, Zhang Zhixin's greatness would not set off their contrasting actions and hence the pride of the nation would not exist. "To make for more pride, Shenyang Prison only has one way, which is to try its best to reform and torture the prisoners, and finally turn them into skeletons one after another. Before they become skeletons, the prison also needs to establish such new tactics as cutting throats and taking out internal organs, so as to become famous later on." ("Shenyang Prison's Pride" by Mo Luo)

Today, several decades later, Shenyang Prison is becoming infamous again. But this time it has tried to reform Falun Gong practitioners who believe in "Truth-Compassion-Forbearance." During this era, when human rights are honored as universal values, the CCP henchmen continue to turn living people into skeletons. As a matter of fact, the CCP's ruthless slaughter machine has never stopped running. After the CCP successively "reformed" the landowners, capitalists, intellectuals, human rights movement activists and others, it is now Falun Gong's turn. Peaceful and compassionate Falun Gong practitioners who hold to their faith are now brutally tortured and killed, as illustrated below.

Ms. Li Ling, 51 years old, the former director of the Department of Labour in the Guta District, Jinzhou City, Liaoning Province, had persevered in cultivating herself in Falun Dafa. After she began practising Falun Gong, all her illnesses disappeared. She was a good person whom her colleagues, neighbours and family members praised frequently. After the evil CCP started the persecution of Falun Gong, Li Ling went to appeal peacefully for the practice and was thus given a prison sentence of one year. She was sent to Shenyang Prison in Liaoning Province where the guards forced her to take a drug that damaged her central nervous system. The torture made her very thin and emaciated. Her body weight dropped from 65 kg (143 lbs) to 45 kg (99 lbs). On April 26th, 2001, Li Ling's sentence was over and she went back home.

On May 28th, 2002, Guta District Political and Judicial Committee people again arrested her and sentenced her to four years of imprisonment. She was sent to Liaoning Province Women's Prison where she was killed by torture on November 17th, 2004.

Not long before Li Ling died from torture, between September 18th and 30th, 2004, the United Nations "Working Group on Arbitrary Detention" conducted an on-site investigation of China's arbitrary detention. The working group demanded that the regime provide information concerning the legal status and health condition of a number of persons who were being detained. Li Ling was one of the persons on the United Nations' list.

This time, the henchmen in Shenyang Prison did not resort to holding high their butcher knives. They instead held up the swindlers' banner of "education, reformation, and rescue." They have reworked the methods of tyranny and torture they used on Zhang Zhixin and now call it "life-giving spring breeze and rain." New ruthless tortures and tyranny are now used. For example, in the case of Gu Changqin, a Falun Gong practitioner in her 50's, she was forced to sit on a barely two-inch-wide wooden stool for a long time. This resulted in severe damage to her sciatic nerve, which became atrophied during the torture and she could not sit. While she staged a hunger strike in protest, the guards barbarously force-fed her by inserting a tube through her mouth into her stomach. As a result, her vocal cords and stomach were punctured and damaged, and she could no longer talk and eat.

Inside Liaoning Province Women's Prison, when Yu Fenghua was at the brink of death because of torture, prison authorities ordered her family to take her home to "seek medical treatment under warranty." Yu Fenghua passed away several days later. These kinds of tragedies are happening every day in China. It is rare for people to become aware of them because of the CCP's cunning and deception.

However, the evildoers are afraid, and their lies and actions are being exposed. Over the past several years, because of Falun Gong practitioners' perseverance in their worldwide truth clarification efforts, more and more people have seen the irrationality and evilness of this persecution. There are also more and more wise and righteous individuals coming forward, such as attorney Gao Zhisheng, who have recognised through Falun Gong practitioners' great forbearance and compassion, hope for reviving the Chinese people's morals, ethics, altruism and bright future. Only one year has passed since the publication of the Nine Commentaries on the Communist Party1, and already more than seven million Chinese people have seen through the CCP's evil nature and have withdrawn from the Party. The persecution is difficult to sustain. The evil Party is rapidly headed for its demise.

What makes this different from the time of Zhang Zhixin's persecution is that the evildoers this time have no opportunities to share in Falun Gong practitioners' accomplishments and pride. This persecution of Falun Gong practitioners has enraged man and the gods! If the henchmen fail to immediately stop doing evil, what awaits them is the same fate as that of the doomed CCP.


1. Nine Commentaries on the Communist Party: Nine Commentaries on the Communist Party is a series of essays published in late 2004 that reveal the true nature of the Communist Party. The Nine Commentaries have led millions of people to renounce their membership in the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) and come to gain a clearer understanding about the wrongful persecution against Falun Gong. "A book that has shocked all Chinese around the world. A book that is disintegrating the Communist Party."
