Description:

Since February 8, 2001, Mr. Wu Qingxiang was detained in the Changlinzi Labor Camp because he didnít renounce Falun Gong. During his detention, Mr. Wu was forced to stand in a dark, damp cell from 6:00 am until 12:00 midnight every day. In June, Mr. Wu joined the other Falun Gong practitioners in the labor camp and began a collective hunger strike to protest their illegal detention and ask for release. Over the three months of the hunger strike, Mr. Wu was forced-fed many times. His weight dropped from 80 kg to 60 kg; his body developed scabies and he had a chronic high fever. His legs and feet became swollen to the point where they looked like they would explode. It became very difficult for him to walk or climb stairs. He had difficulty breathing, could not lie flat in bed, nor could he speak or eat. He could only drink some water, but his urinary tract was blocked and he could only sit all day long. At last, his arms, abdomen, chest and face all became swollen. When he was sent home, his family sent him to the hospital, but it was too late to do anything to save him. Mr. Wu died on March 4, 2002.
