International Human Rights Exhibition

The Citizens' Commission on Human Rights (CCHR) held
an international human rights exhibition at the Darling Harbor Conference and
Exhibition Center in Sydney, Australia for the first time. Photos exposing the
Chinese Communist Party’s (CCP) persecution of Falun Gong practitioners
through the abuse of psychiatry were shown under the title, "China’s Gulags."

captions stated that the former USSR was not the only country using gulags to
detain political prisoners, and that China also imprisons and persecutes various
groups in a system of gulags. Chinese psychiatrists have tortured hundreds of
thousands of Falun Gong practitioners with electric shocks, imprisonment and
drugs. They inject harmful drugs, resulting in swollen and extended tongues. They use high-voltage electric needles to shock the practitioners’ acupuncture points on the bottoms of their feet, leading to extreme pain. They apply large doses of psychiatric drugs to force the practitioners to give up their beliefs.
An investigation by the World Organization to Investigate the Persecution of Falun Gong (WOIPFG) has shown that since July 1999, at least one thousand healthy Falun Gong practitioners were sent to mental hospitals to receive forced injections or take drugs. More than 110 mental hospitals in China are involved in
the persecution of Falun Gong. The World Psychiatric Association planned to investigate the allegation that China abuses mental hospitals, but canceled at
the last moment because of lack of cooperation from the CCP.
The following is an example of the CCP abusing the mental health system by
imprisoning a Falun Gong practitioner and torturing her with psychiatric drugs.
Ms. Huang Xin is a retired military examiner. She is the mother of Zeng
Xiaonan, a resident of Toronto, Canada. On 2003 she was sentenced to eight
years of imprisonment in Liaoning Province Women’s Prison for refusing to give
up her belief in Falun Gong. At the beginning of 2004, Ms. Huang was sent to
the Liaoning Province Women’s Prison Hospital. There, she was injected with
nerve-damaging drugs against her will, and lost most of her memory. She now
displays slowed reactions to her surroundings. She was forced to take two daily
doses of Chlorpromazine hydrochloride (trade name: Thorazine). Because of
the side effects of the high drug doses, her mind has become blurry. Sometimes
she cannot speak and she has difficulty moving her lower limbs.

New Mexico, USA: Practitioners Join the Annual Santa Fe Fiesta Parade
On September 10, 2006, practitioners from
Colorado and Kansas joined practitioners in New Mexico for the
"Historical/Hysterical" parade in Santa Fe, New Mexico. The parade
is a major event in the annual Santa Fe Fiesta, the oldest continuous
community celebration in the United States. Since 1712, the people
of Santa Fe have taken pride in both the historical and religious
significance of the Santa Fe Fiesta. The atmosphere of the parade
was joyful, and the Falun Gong practitioners were warmly received
by the parade spectators. Practitioners distributed nearly 2,000 flyers
to introduce Falun Gong to the people of Santa Fe.
