The Persecution of Falun Gong Practitioners in Shijiazhuang Women's Prison, Hebei Province

Shijiazhuang Women's Prison in Hebei Province detains about 80 to 90 Falun Gong practitioners. The oldest is 70 years old. The longest term is 14 years. Falun Gong practitioners Miss Wang Bo and her mother,Liu Shuqin, are detained and persecuted in the Shijiazhuang Women's Prison after they were sentenced.

The long-term excessive work causes more than half the detainees to develop diseases such as tuberculosis. The Falun Gong practitioners are forced to work overtime. Every night they cannot go to sleep until 11 PM or 12 AM. Every job has a quota. If they cannot finish the quota, if they talk when lining-up, or if the work quality is not good enough, they are punished.

There is a so-called "attacking the steadfast" team in the prison, which is specially set up for "transforming1" and persecuting Falun Gong practitioners. The new arrivals among the Falun Gong practitioners are subjected to brainwashing by the team. The prison cancels all the rights of those Falun Gong practitioners who do not write the so-called "Four Statements2." They cannot have their terms reduced, they are not allowed to be released on bail, not allowed family visits, phone calls, to send or receive letters, or to purchase anything. From each prison division, one guard and several collaborators who had written the "Four Statements" are selected as assistants. If a practitioner does not write the "Four Statements," the assistants do not allow him to sleep. The prison also orders prisoners to monitor Falun Gong practitioners when they are talking, working and eating. All actions are monitored, and any errors are picked up and used as a reason for punishment.

The prison guards only have two words, one is "fast" and the other is "do". The prison forces Falun Gong practitioners to work excessively. Every day, the practitioners are subjected to intense stress by being forced to make clothing for more than 16 hours from 6 AM to midnight. Everyone has to finish their quota.

In the Shijiazhuang Women's Prison, it is very cold. There is very strict control between prison divisions. If a detainee meets someone she knows and says hello, she will be punished.
