Mr. Wang Qiming, a retired worker, was arrested by police, and all kinds of barbaric torture was inflicted upon him at the Masanjia Forced Labour Camp in Shenyang, Liaoning Province.
What is detailed here is Wang Qiming's experience, by his own description.
I was arrested by the police in July 2008 and was persecuted at the Masanjia Labour Camp for one and a half years. I experienced, both mentally and physically, the barbaric destruction that guards imposed on Falun Gong practitioners at the labour camp. I was very healthy before, but I was tortured to the point that I felt weak all over my body. It felt like my chest was plugged and I could feel my heart palpitating. It was difficult to breathe. I was unable to eat anything and was very thin.
We were forced to sit on board, watch fake news and slanderous videos made by the Chinese Communist Party (CCP), and answer endless questions every day. The practitioners who refused to be "transformed" [forcibly renounce Falun Gong] were punished by having to stand against the wall. You could not close your eyes, and your nose had to touch the wall. There were people watching you all the time, and they kept extending the duration of the punishment. If a practitioner still refused to be "transformed," he would be taken to a special room to be tortured by the "Stretching Bed" method (See illustration on http://www.clearwisdom.net/emh/articles/2005/2/11/57390.html). Practitioner Mr. Liu Wendong from Jinzhou was tortured on a stretching bed for half an hour. After that he could not get up, and was left just lying on the floor. Practitioners were forced to shout slogans and sing songs for the CCP. Mr. Kai Zhaolian from Fushun shouted "Falun Gong is good!" He was thus beaten. Guards forced an electric baton into his mouth. Afterwards, his mouth was full of bloody blisters, and his lips were swollen.
Practitioners were also forced to do labour, to make silk flower crafts and prisoner clothes. We got up at 5:30 a.m. to do the stated tasks. We were not able to have time for a rest except for the time we ate and went to the bathroom. Any talking among practitioners was forbidden. What we ate were cakes made from rotten cornmeal. The potatoes were black, and we ate radishes in the summer. Practitioners were forced to recite the "30 standards of the labour camp" at night. When cleaning, we had to endlessly fold a quilt so that we would not have any spare time, but we were not allowed to use the quilt.
Ten years ago, because of neurosis, neurasthenia, and other chronic diseases, I embarked on my path of practising Falun Gong. I did things according to Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance. I became cheerful and the diseases that tortured me for many years disappeared.
