In recent years, there have been numerous reports of Falun Gong practitioners held in Chinese forced labor camps, prisons, and psychiatric hospitals being poisoned with unknown drugs. Usually mixed into meals or directly injected into their bodies, the drugs have caused symptoms of impaired motor control in walking, becoming incontinent, and loss of memory and consciousness. Some victims' lives have even been endangered.
According to the information compiled by Minghui.net, a main Falun Gong website, thousands of Falun Gong practitioners have suffered from psychiatric damage caused by forced injection of unknown drugs. Among them, some have died of damage to their central nervous system. According to statistics, the number of the reported cases is over 800. The following are excerpts from some of these reports:
Ms. Zhang Fuzhen used to be an employee of Xianhe Park management center, Pingdu City, Shandong Province. She was arrested in 2001 and sent to Pingdu City 610 Office's Brainwashing class. She never returned home. According to eyewitnesses, the police stripped her naked and shaved her entire head. They tied her to a bed with her four limbs stretched out for long hours. She suffered torture, insult, and was injected of an unknown toxic substance. After the injection, Zhang was in so much pain that she nearly had a nervous breakdown. She struggled in great pain on the bed until she died. Local officials from the 610 Office reportedly witnessed the whole process. Ms. Zhang Fuzhen died at the young age of 38 years old.
The overwhelming persecution against the Falun Gong spiritual movement since 1999 has become a major concern worldwide. This report is simply an excerpt from a few articles about the use of harmful drugs in the torture of Falun Gong practitioners, and a partial reflection
