Critical Situation of Women
The torture, imprisonment and ill-treatment of women has become unrestrained in nature as the brutal treatment is fully supported by those who ordered the crackdown. All means necessary are being used to transform or eradicate them. In the notorious Masanjia Labour Camp, 18 female practitioners were stripped naked and forced into the male convict cells at night. The guards at this camp are given bonuses and awards for their high transformation rates. In Heizuizi Labour Camp, women are terrorized by being tied to the tables of the corpses in the morgue. Psychiatric abuses in mental hospitals, use of electric batons, rape, parading in the streets, forced abortions, forced feeding, beatings and other inhumane treatments have become commonplace.
Elderly Beaten and Deprived of their Pensions
Elderly Falun Gong practitioners who have devoted themselves to the service of their country are deprived of their pensions in their old age. Old men and women are also languishing in the labour camps for refusing to renounce their beliefs.
Babies and Children
