Changchun Heizuizi Women's Labor Camp Uses Forced Labor to Produce Airline Food Boxes
(Clearwisdom.net) Those in charge in the Fifth Ward of Heizuizi Women's Forced Labor Camp in Changchun City beat Falun Gong practitioners and force them to do intense labor for long hours. Each day the practitioners are forced to work for 14 hours, from 6:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. They have to produce various items, including butterfly decorations for the Shouquan Handicraft Limited Company and packaged food containers for China Northern Airlines, China Southern Airlines, and Yanbian Xiangda Airport Limited Company. They have to unload the unfinished food boxes from the vehicle. Practitioners then carry these boxes from the 1st floor up to the 4th floor. They then carry the finished product from the 4th floor downstairs to load it into the vehicle, so they aren't empty handed.
In order to make large profits, the labor camp administration also frequently forces the prisoners to work overtime. Specifically, when Chief Wang Limei and Deputy Chief Su Guiying (both females) are on duty, the prisoners are forced to work overtime. Once when Wang Limei was on duty, they had to paste double-sided stickers on Pepsi Cola posters. Each person had to make 1300 pieces per day and worked overtime, past 2:00 a.m. the next morning. Several practitioners fell down from exhaustion. If one does not complete the stipulated quota, she will be scolded, disciplined, and threatened with an extended imprisonment term.
The labor camp persecutes practitioners using various means, often extending their terms of imprisonment and slave labor. They are not allowed visitations. Practitioner Ms. Zhang Lifen has been taken outside for medical exams three times since she entered the labor camp. Her blood pressure has ranged between 90 - 220. Her life is in danger but the labor camp authorities have postponed her release and forced her to do 14 hours of labor every day. Practitioners Ms. Dong Yuxin and Ms. Mu Xiuxiang's terms had expired, but were extended for ten days. Ms. Hu Song's term was extended for ten days for tearing down pictures defaming Falun Gong practitioners. Ms. Liu Fang and Ms. Wang Yujie's terms were extended for five days for not responding with the proper answer to an exam slandering Falun Gong.
On March 4, 2008, practitioner Ms. Wang Xiufen was beaten mercilessly by wardens Wang Lihui (female) and Su Guiying. Her upper lip needed more than ten stitches. She was put under close monitoring for over ten days. In order to cover up the crime, Chief Wang Limei deceived Ms. Wang Xiufen into acknowledging that she had caused the bruise herself to avoid being charged with a fabricated crime.
In March 2008, female warden Xu Dan slapped practitioner Ms. Xu Cuihua in the face because she practiced the exercises. Practitioner Ms. Gong Qiumin was forcibly handcuffed by guards Wang Limei, Song Fengmei (female), and Zhang Lihong (female) for refusing to let her hand prints be taken. Wang Limei not only slapped Ms. Gong Qiumin in the face, but also forcibly dragged her for a hand imprint.
The labor camp police from the Fifth Team utilized inmates that had been prostitutes and thieves to guard the porch area and monitor Falun Gong practitioners. Every Friday during the cell searches, these monitors seemed to be searching for dangerous materials. They were actually searching for Falun Gong scriptures. Practitioner Ms. Xiao Benying hid the scriptures under her pillow. When she went to the restroom in the evening, these monitors and collaborators found the pages and gave them to the higher level officials. Ms. Xiao's term was extended for ten days. Each time during the body search, warden Wang Lihui put in the most effort. They also frequently searched the workshop and body searched practitioners, including their bras. Warden Xiao Aiqiu insulted and persecuted many practitioners with her scheming and incitement. In July 2007, the prostitutes guarding the porch area discovered some Falun Gong materials belonging to 64-year old Ms. Shang Yuqin. The gang was helping the wardens to directly do bad deeds against Falun Gong practitioners. Chief Wang Limei and Warden Wang Lihui handcuffed Ms. Shang Yuqin's hands to a bed and electrically shocked her for more than two hours. They also slapped her face.
