My Experience of Being Humiliated Allowed Me to See the Chinese Communist Party as a Thief Who Cries, "Stop the Thief!"

I read a report on November 26th, 2005 in a Chinese Communist Party (CCP) newspaper that Liu Jianchao, a CCP diplomat at the Chinese Consulate in Malaysia, was "furious" about female detainees being maltreated at a Malaysian detention centre. Moreover, he strongly demanded that the Malaysian Government seriously punish the guard who violated the law. (In this case, the CCP was trying to stir up "nationalistic emotions" among the Chinese people, instead of sincerely trying to protect human rights. Later, it was verified that this "female detainee" was not Chinese.) After reading this report, I was reminded of my experience of being persecuted for practising Falun Gong. The CCP's condemnation of another country for abusing prisoners is only an act of crying "stop the thief" when the CCP is itself is a thief.

At about noon on December 30th, 2000, I was eating lunch with my son. Suddenly, my door was struck hard, seemingly with great urgency. Before I opened the door, four or five plain-clothes policemen rushed in. They ransacked my home, turning it inside-out, including the bathroom and the refrigerator. They then illegally arrested me and took me to the local police station. At dusk they escorted me into a vehicle and told me that they were sending me home. After getting out of the vehicle, I realised that I had been sent to a detention centre. I strongly demanded to go home because my son was in the final examination period of the school term, and he did not know my whereabouts and did not have the key to our home. However, nobody paid any attention to my demand. Because the detention centre would not take me, they then took me back to the local police station and locked me in a room. The room was totally dark, damp, less than two square meters in size, and smelled terrible. I was unable to sleep and ended up squatting in the room through the night. No one ever asked me whether I needed any food until after 4:00 p.m. on December 31st. The kind person who gave me a small bowl of food and some toilet paper did so without telling others. He saw that I did not eat or drink the whole time I was there. (When the police arrested me, they deceived me by saying that they wanted me to lead the way to my child's grandfather's home, and they did not allow me to bring anything.) Later, I was detained at the district detention centre. A young guard stripped me naked with the excuse of following orders from his superior. I was already 51 years old and my feelings at the time are impossible to describe with words.

I want to ask the diplomat, Mr. Liu Jianchao: "The CCP illegally arrests Falun Gong practitioners at will, persecutes good people, does not allow them to eat and drink for dozens of hours, and strips the clothes off women and children. Don't these acts constitute maltreatment?!"

The CCP has consistently addressed itself as "a powerful socialist country" and said that now is its " best period of human rights." The Party continues to claim that it protects women's and children's personal rights and interests, but the facts prove that their claims are only lies intended to deceive other countries and the people of the world.

After the police illegally sentenced me, they sent me to the provincial women's prison. During several years of illegal imprisonment at the women's prison, I witnessed that Falun Gong practitioners were humiliated at will by the criminal inmates, suffered body searches with all their clothes stripped off, and suffered torture via all sorts of mental and physical means. For example, Yu Zhenyu was cuffed to a steel pole for several hours because she refused to wear the prison uniform. She was also hung up by the cuffs. Liu Daju was forced to wear restraining clothes (the clothes get tighter each time the person moves); and Ms. Chen Chujun was tortured until she was barely breathing, and she was only allowed to be picked up by the local 610 Office1 personnel. They made rules forbidding Falun Gong practitioners to talk to each other or to even look outside the window. The guards instigated the criminal inmates to wilfully beat and curse Falun Gong practitioners, and then the guards pretended that they did not know about it.

The CCP implements state-terrorism against the population, using government personnel as its agents. The Party compels all levels of officials to violate the law and trample on human rights. The CCP wants to destroy the morale and conscience of the entire Chinese population with their fabricated rumours. Now, China's natural and man-made disasters are very frequent, but the Party repeatedly covers these things up. Please wake up, Chinese people. Please do not continue to hope that the CCP will change.
