Woman Raped and Tortured by "Authorities"

A woman was reported to have been raped repeatedly for a period of time in a brainwashing center in Xinjin County, Sichuan Province.

She was taken away from her family and husband by Chinese authorities because she practiced Falun Gong.

This is a picture of her before:

and this is a picture of her after her ordeal:

One thing that makes me angry is a woman being raped.

Something that makes me angrier is a woman being raped by 'authorities' - and sanctioned by a government.

I think what makes this sinister crime even worse is that Xia was taken away and tortured this way because she enjoyed practicing Falun Gong - something that has made a lot of people, including myself healthier and happier.

Is it the knowledge in the book Zhuan Falun that makes the Chinese 'authorities' (read evil, conscience less souls) so afraid of Falun Gong?

What for? What for?

This is the book:

Do you want to know what is in it?

You can read the whole book online and for FREE here.

This book, as you can see for yourself, teaches people to be good people. Basically, it expounds on Truthfulness - Compassion - Tolerance.

This must be something opposite from what the Chinese Communist Party believes in judging by the way they treat people who like to read this book.

Do they think that if people learn to be more truthful. compassionate and kind that it will automatically highlight the nature of the communists as bad?

I don't know.

I can only tell with certainty that the persecution of Falun Gong in China is without reason, without rationality, it makes absolutely no sense at all.

Beijing Under Spotlight at U.N. Human Rights Council "A systematic form of inhuman and degrading treatment" is how Manfred Nowak, United Nations (UN) Special Rapporteur, described what he sees as "widespread" use of torture in the People's Republic of China (PRC). Nowak spoke to the UN Human Rights Council in Geneva on September 20. His statement was only one of several putting the PRC's appalling human rights record under close scrutiny on days three and four of the Second Session of the Council.

Thailand Coup Has Royal, Public Support Army Chief General Sonthi Boonyaratglin led a successful, bloodless coup to overthrow Thai Prime Minister Thaksin Shinawatra's administration late Tuesday evening on September 19. At that time, military troops began surrounding government buildings and major intersections in Bangkok. The army flooded the airwaves with royal songs, which signified a coup was unfolding. Later, the coup leaders said that they were supporters of Thailand's monarch, King Bhumipol Adulyadej.


Defending Attorney Seeks Meeting with Gao As of September 20, it has been 37 days since renowned Chinese human rights attorney Gao Zhisheng has been detained under criminal investigation. According to law in China, the detention should not exceed 37 days. After this period of time the police should either release the litigant or issue an official arrest warrant and proceed to the next level of legal procedure. But Beijing police have not yet made any such moves.

Red Color Emerges in Taiwan's Anti-President Movement In Taiwan, two colors normally dominate the political scene: blue and green, the respective colors of the two rivaling parties. Recently the color red has emerged onto the scene, worn by protesters who want current President Chen Shui-bian out of office. Many sources have looked at the funding received by protesters and various media in Taiwan, and suspect this new red color, now synonymous with the anti-president movement, is not simply a domestic homegrown persuasion—but rather that an external and indeed red entity, the Chinese Communist Party (CCP), is behind the red anti-president movement.
