The Injection of Drugs
When the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) is unable to "reform" Falun Gong practitioners using psychological persecution and physical torture, they inject them with various drugs to attack their nervous systems. Practitioners often lose coherence or become comatose as a result. Drugging is among the most evil methods used in the persecution of Falun Gong.
The World Organisation to Investigate the Persecution of Falun Gong (WOIPFG) and China Mental Health Watch Organisation report that psychiatric abuse is used to persecute Falun Gong practitioners in 23 of China's provinces and regions. Many psychiatrists follow no medical ethics and join in the persecution. Many doctors who were investigated clearly expressed that they knew that the Falun Gong practitioners they worked with were mentally healthy, normal people, but they still had to inject them with toxic drugs. They said it was their job to obey orders and if they did not do so, they would be dismissed.
Falun Gong practitioner Wu Chunlong from Jiamusi City in Heilongjiang Province developed a serious case of arthritis and could not walk. When he practiced Falun Gong, his illness vanished. When Falun Gong was slandered, Wu Chunlong went to Beijing to clarify the truth. For this he was brutally tortured. Liu Hongguang, Yang Chunlong and other police officers in Jiamusi Forced Labour Camp severely tortured him to force him to give up "Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance." Mr. Wu was forced to sit on a tiger bench for seven days, and later he was injected with an unknown drug. He fainted on and off a few days later, became incontinent, losing control of his bowels. Seven to eight days after he was force-fed, he lost all feeling from his lower back to his knees. He was unable to move his legs, his chest was cold, his mind blurry, and he was physically emaciated and dying. At that point he was nothing but skin and bones. He couldn't sit or stand up straight, he couldn't think clearly, and he had no facial expression. He appeared to hold no memory, thoughts or reflections. On April 30th, 2005, Wu Chunlong was near death. The police extorted 20,000 yuan from his family and Wu was released. On August 20th, 2005, Wu Chunlong passed away. He was only 30 years old.

Ms. Zhang Fuzhen died at 38 years old. She was illegally arrested and taken to the Pingdu Brainwashing Centre. 610 Office1 policemen stripped off all of her clothes, shaved her head and humiliated her. They tied her with her limbs spread out so she was forced to relieve herself in the bed. Later, the police injected her with an unknown drug, after which she felt unbearable pain. She struggled as if she were being driven out of her mind and died in agonising pain. The officials from the 610 Office witnessed the entire course of Ms. Zhang's death.
It happened in Xuzhou Mental Hospital in Jiangsu Province as follows: Staff members tied Falun Gong practitioners to beds, gave them injections and forcibly administered medicines. Medical staff members injected them with large dosages of unknown drugs. Right after the injections, practitioners would lose consciousness. After a period of time, they would regain consciousness. The medical staff would then untie the ropes from the practitioners. When the drugs took effect, it was so painful that it was as if practitioners' internal organs were being torn apart. Practitioners would roll on the floor screaming with pain. After practitioners regained consciousness, they questioned the medical staff, "Why did you inject and feed these drugs to people who are not sick?" They answered, "It is not up to us. People at the top instructed us to do so. We don't want to treat you like this but we don't want to lose our jobs." They also said, "You will not die from these drugs but they will cause you great pain. If you stop practising Falun Gong, we can stop giving you the drugs. Do not leave the hospital on your own. If we don't gradually reduce the dosage, you would either go crazy or die. Even if you run away, people would treat you as an insane person and send you back here. The pain from the reaction of the drug is very scary and hard to imagine." The mental hospital separated female practitioners and locked them up with male mental patients. One day, a practitioner put her legs in full-lotus position while sitting on a chair. The head of the hospital came over and said, "Are you still practising? We will increase the dosage until it is as though you are neither dead nor alive."
He Weihua, a freelance writer, was sent to a mental hospital. He witnessed the following: "In the mental hospital, I truly witnessed that persistent Falun Gong practitioners were brutally tortured, tied on a cold metal bed after being stripped and force-fed. They suffered psychiatric abuse. They were injected with drugs or force-fed. I saw the police tie them up. Their legs kept shaking, their eyes would roll back and their voices would lose projection. These normal people suddenly became lifeless. From then on, they turned pale, had no facial expressions, and they appeared to hold no memory, thoughts or reflections. I still don't have the courage to completely read articles about the persecution of Falun Gong because it makes me unable to breathe. Their suffering makes other people's sorrowful lives even more sorrowful. Can only 'a living hell' adequately describe the suffering?"
The CCP continues the brutal persecution despite increasing concern from the outside world. The perpetrators simply commit their crimes in a more covert and vicious way, are more furtive, and keep tight control over the flow of information.
4. Reform - Mental Emasculation and Soul Murder
Jiang's regime persecutes Falun Gong practitioners not only to physically torture them but also to destroy their ethics. Kong Fansun, a director of "Legal System Education and Training Centre" in Hebei Province, said to practitioners who were "reformed" that, "Practitioners who can torture and scold others are really transformed." "Reformed" people have to show that they value lying, betrayal, cruelty and inhumanity to certify their absolute betrayal of "Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance." That procedure of "reform" actually reforms a person into a ghost. To those people who own their honours, the "reform" is killing their spirits. They suffer much more than physical death.
Can you imagine? Zhang Xiaojie, the wife of a research scientist of Xiehe Medical University Lin Chengtao, a respected music teacher, was sent to Beijing Tiantanghe Women's Forced labour Camp. After being brainwashed at the Tiantanghe Women's Forced Labour Camp, Mr. Lin's wife succumbed to the brainwashing and torture and renounced her belief in Falun Dafa. She sent letters suggesting that the leaders in Tuanhe Labour Camp adopt the methods used in the Women's Labour Camp, including electric shock, physical punishment, psychological abuse and sleep deprivation, to force Mr. Lin to give up his belief. The labour camp published one of her letters. The guards forced Mr. Lin to repeatedly read the letter from his wife requesting the guards to torture him. Mr. Lin could not take such mental stress. He became mentally unstable, rushed into the hallway, and kept shouting loudly. Since that time, he has been in a mentally traumatised state.

A 19 year old female Musical University student, Wang Bo, was sent to Forced Labour Camp. She suffered brutal torture and was forced into brainwashing. The CCP abused her innocence and honesty and deceived her into deceiving her father. They made her lie on the program Focal Point Interview on China's Central Television Station (CCTV). She once told her father that her spirit had already died many times. When she obtained her freedom in December 2005, she wrote that "I now realise how sinister they were to have fooled me with smiles on their faces. If they had treated me harshly, I could have remained clearheaded. But whenever they approached me, they always kept a beaming smile, yet the tricks they used were the most wicked. Invariably, they do everything they can to find out your concerns. When they see that you are concerned about your father, they try to achieve their evil goal by taking advantage of that sensitive point..." This is how Wang Bo described the deception, brainwashing, and manipulation she suffered at the hands of the CCP.
During this persecution, "reformed" practitioners lose their spirits and become sorrowful, whereas the persecutors earn economic wealth. They not only committed a crime, but they put themselves in a state beyond redemption for what they have done, so they are the real victims.
Our nation's people have experienced so many abuses such as "Stewing the Eagle" and "brainwashing" since the CCP usurped the power this last half century. From "Counter-Revolutionary," "Bourgeois Rightists," "'the five black categories," "criminal actions" to "X believers," actually, not only a few people are victims, but numerous people who agreed with the CCP, signed and appeased, or who smiled and nodded are the real victims. Many people were brainwashed during the political movements and became unethical. They gave up their own honour and lost their ways. Especially during this persecution of Falun Gong, the CCP destroyed the human conscience and ruined humans' futures.
5. Righteous Faith Cannot Be Defeated
Falun Gong practitioners never give up their belief when the CCP poisons people by slandering "Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance." They "clarify the truth" sincerely and persist in their beliefs.
On May 7th, 2004, Tang Yubao, deputy head of the No. 2 Brigade, along with team leader Jiang Zhaohua, called Ms. Gao Rongrong to the duty office and shocked her with electric batons for 6-7 hours, from 3:00 p.m. to after 9:00 p.m. She sustained burns on her face, head and neck, which caused her face to swell and become disfigured. Her face was covered with blisters, her hair was matted with blood, and pus adhered to her scorched skin. She could open her eyes only a crack because of her swollen face, and her mouth was severely swollen and deformed. Even inmates who had lived with her day and night for a long time could not recognize her.
Persecutors can burn her face. However, they could never "reform" her mind. One year later, they could not ruin her belief in Truthfulness, Compassion, Forbearance," even though they killed her.

Wang Yuhuan, a normal older woman, could read only a few Chinese characters. She held a hunger strike to protest the persecution. The police tried to send her to a hospital during the 26th day. But she required three conditions: (1) All of the police must stand on two sides of an aisle; (2) All of the prisoners and Falun Dafa practitioners must see her go out; and (3) She must be singing on the way home. During the 26th day of a hunger strike, people can barely stand up. When the guards agreed to her requirements, she did her best to stand up. She sang "Falun Dafa is good!" It is difficult to describe. All of the prisoners and practitioners were moved with tears and clapped for her. All of them were convinced that Falun Dafa is good because of her righteous faith.
Wei Chun, a 35 year-old practitioner, was illegally arrested, and held at the Dalian Detention Centre. He was burned by six electric batons on his head, back, legs, ribs and neck, and even pudendum.
He held a hunger strike to protect his belief. He said, "I can protest the persecution of Jiang's regime with my own life. When my son asks me someday, 'What did you do during the persecution of Falun Gong?' I would not like to answer that I surrendered. I would rather sacrifice my whole life to stop the persecution of Falun Gong.
During the almost seven years of brutal and bloody persecution, countless families were broken and numerous practitioners suffered severe physical and mental torment. Like the founder of Falun Gong, Mr. Li Hongzhi said,
"Never in history has someone who persecuted those with upright faiths ever succeeded." ("Coercion Cannot Change People's Hearts" from Essentials for Further Advancement II)
Falun Gong practitioners have firmly held the principle of "Truth-Compassion-Forbearance," peacefully and rationally exposing the persecution. They have become more mature. The dictator Jiang Zemin proclaimed before the persecution started that Falun Gong would be eradicated in three months. Unfortunately, Falun Gong has not vanished despite the unprecedented torment. Instead, Falun Gong has spread to the entire world. The violence and abuse of power can not stop the people's eager pursuit of celestial truth from the bottoms of their hearts. In the meantime, lies and torture never reform hearts.
The CCP uses deception and torture to force people to give up their belief and uses economic tactics to motivate others to commit crimes. That shows their evilness and reluctance for justice. As the Nine Commentaries on the Communist Party spreads widely, the CCP's evil is exposed to the entire world. Over 10 million Chinese citizens have renounced the CCP. They choose a bright future.
History witnesses the righteous nature of Falun Gong practitioners, witnesses the greatness of "Truthfulness, Compassion, Forbearance," witnesses the powerful spirit and wisdom endowed by Falun Dafa, witnesses the firmness of Falun Dafa practitioners, and witnesses their compassion for the entire society.
