P1 Witness to torture
Wang Xia lives in Inner Mongolia Province, Mainland China. She was once a vibrant and beautiful woman. She was arrested and tortured by the Chinese Communist regime for refusing to give up practicing Falun Gong. She held a long-term hunger strike in protest and was repeatedly force-fed by the Chinese police. The photograph of an emaciated Wang Xia was published on the Minghui website in August of 2004 and attracted wide attention.
P2 Witness to torture
Gao Rongrong was a Falun Gong practitioner and a resident of Shenyang City. On May 7, 2004, prison guards Tang Yubao, Jiang Zhaohua and others at the Longshan Forced Labor Camp shocked her face with electric batons for six or seven hours. Her face was totally disfigured and her hair was covered with blood and glued to the scorched skin on her face.
P3 Witness to torture
In order to force Falun Gong practitioners to give up their practice, the Chinese Communist regime has used at least 100 kinds of unimaginably horrible tortures on practitioners. Practitioners have also been abused in mental hospitals and deprived of most of their human rights. The evidence of torture suffered by practitioners in Mainland China is only the tip of the iceberg of the nightmarish suffering that practitioners in Mainland China are forced to go through.

After the Chinese Communist regime began to persecute Falun Gong on July 20, 1999, the Chinese Communist regime set up a special organization called "The 6-10 Office" to persecute Falun Gong practitioners. The 6-10 Office ordered the local Chinese governments to stop practitioners from going to Beijing to appeal for Falun Gong at all cost. Blockades were set up on all major highways and the Chinese military was put on the highest alert.
T18 Validating Dafa on Tiananmen Square
Many practitioners went through a lot of tribulations before they arrived in Beijing to appeal for Falun Gong. A practitioner from Jilin Province was intercepted by police near her hometown. The police took all of her money and belongings and detained her at the local jail. She escaped from jail and walked thousands of miles to Beijing on foot in the height of the winter, begging for food along the way. When a farmer from Sichuan Province was interrogated by police in Beijing, he opened his bag and showed the police nine pairs of worn-out home-made clothes shoes. He said, "I walked a long way to get here, just to say a few heartfelt words. Falun Gong is good! The government is wrong [for persecuting Falun Gong]!"
