Olympic Reporters’ Guide to Labor Camps Published

Booklet provides driving directions to notorious labor camps, urges
coverage of media taboo

Reuters – To help foreign reporters overcome the
Chinese government’s media censorship and shed light on closely shielded
rights violations
, the Coalition to Investigate the Persecution of Falun Gong
(CIPFG) released today a detailed guide to detention facilities located within
miles of Olympic venues and known for their severe abuse of Falun Gong
prisoners of conscience.
The guide, entitled “Torture Outside the Olympic Village: A Guide to China’s
Labor Camps,” is available online here or PDF at: here

“Many of us have heard stories about China’s gulags, but when you discover how
close some of these hellholes are to Olympic venues, it’s sickening,
” says
Clive Ansley, China Monitor for Lawyers’ Rights Watch Canada and North
American President of CIPFG.
The guide details seven detention facilities, in or near Beijing, Qingdao,
Shanghai, Tianjin, Qinhuangdao, and Shenyang, and includes:

–  Map: A map showing the location of the facility, the location of the
closest Olympic venue, and English-language directions to the camp
from the nearest airport and train station.
–  Description of facility: A photo, general description of the facility,
details of its prisoner population, overall conditions, and the name,
address and phone number (if available).
–  Products and show tours: Products known to have been manufactured at
the site
and details of prior show tours to the facility, when
relevant.
–  Individual cases: Brief individual case summaries of current and
former prisoners of conscience, the abuse they have suffered in
custody, and whether they are available for interview.

“We hope this guide will draw international attention to the innocent
individuals held at these locations,” says Ansley. “It should particularly aid
journalists in investigating the plight of adherents of the Falun Gong, who
make up a huge percentage of labor camp detainees and have suffered a brutal
campaign of persecution for nine years.

Note on censorship: Contrary to promises of “complete freedom” for foreign
media, the Chinese authorities have blocked access to Falun Gong-related
websites from the Olympic Media Center in a deal struck with the International
Olympic Committee. To circumvent such censorship, CIPFG suggests the following
measures:
–  Request that colleagues outside China e-mail or fax a copy of the
guide to you inside China.
–  Use circumvention tools available at www.internetfreedom.org/

to access the guide despite the censorship
-  Once you have obtained a copy, please re-post it on other websites,

blogs, etc. By creating multiple copies on the web, the Chinese
government’s blocking of the original becomes obsolete.

The Coalition to Investigate the Persecution of Falun Gong (CIPFG) was
established to unite international human rights organizations, legal experts,
medical institutions, NGOs and government representatives around the world to
participate in an independent investigation of the Chinese communist regime’s
imprisonment, torture, killing, and organ harvesting of Falun Gong
practitioners. Since August 2007, it has also sponsored the Human Rights Torch
Relay, a global grassroots campaign to raise awareness of, and stop, the
Chinese communist regime’s human rights crimes against all victimized groups
prior to the 2008 Beijing Olympics.

On May 7, 2004, in the Longshan Forced Labor Camp, two policemen handcuffed Ms. Gao Rongrong to a heating pipe and shocked her with three electric batons for seven hours straight, burning her face to a crisp. This photo was taken 10 days later. Ms. Gao sent the picture to overseas websites. When the Communist regime found out, they put out an all points bulletin for her capture. They tortured Gao Rongrong to death on June 16, 2005.
