A man in his 70s was injected with unknown drugs after he was imprisoned by Chinese Communist Party officials for refusing to stop practicing a type of meditation.

The man, identified only as Mr. Wang, was also beaten by Chinese medical personnel “until he passed out,” according to Minghui.org, a website dedicated to sharing information about Falun Gong, a type of mind-body practice based on the principles of “Truthfulness, Compassion, Forbearance.”

Practitioners of Falun Gong have been severely persecuted by communist authorities since July 1999. They face torture, death, and even forced organ harvesting at the hands of CCP authorities.

Wang was arrested for distributing desk calendars that had information about Falun Gong, and he was sentenced to 1.5 years in prison, according to the report on Sept. 17.

Wang “said that 20 days after he was admitted to the prison, the guards took him to the prison hospital in Chengdu for medical treatment” in September 2017, the report stated.

“Without discussing his condition with him, the doctor instructed the nurse to inject him with unknown drugs,” according to Minghui, which added that they forcibly inserted an “endoscopic clamp into his lung and injected him with a contrast dye” for a CT scan.

After the forced medical procedures, Wang felt dizzy and short of breath due to excessive bleeding, the report said. However, a month later, a prison guard took him back to the prison and forced him to perform “slave labor without pay,” Minghui reported.

As a result, “Wang began to cough out blood while doing forced labor and his situation worsened over time,” the report said. When he was taken back to the hospital, medical personnel beat and kicked him until he lost consciousness.

Before the latest round of abuse, he was arrested nine times and sentenced to prison four times.

He was also “subjected to many inhumane tortures for his belief in Falun Gong,” Minghui noted.

Organ Harvesting

In a 2016 update, the International Coalition to End Transplant Abuse in China said that CCP is performing a far greater amount of transplants than officially claimed.

The CCP is primarily targeting Falun Gong practitioners but Uyghurs, Tibetans, and Christians have also been targeted for organ harvesting.

“If you do the arithmetic, that means that about 150 people daily in China are being killed for their organs. And there are no survivors in these operations,” former Canadian MP and secretary of state for Asia-Pacific David Kilgour said in May 2018.

‘Cold Genocide’

A new study published in “Genocide Studies and Prevention: An International Journal” by University of Manitoba associate professor Dr. Maria Cheung notes that “the genocide of Falun Gong stands out as anomalous because it is virtually ignored.”

The study argues that the “cold genocide” of Falun Gong practitioners in China is “insidious, potent, and deadly.”

In an interview with The Epoch Times in August, Cheung said that cold genocide isn’t only about the physical destruction of a group, but it is also about psychological, structural, and social destruction.

“No one will pay attention to it because it’s too slow to notice that this is actually a systematic killing with a clear intention,” Cheung said. “I think what makes a genocide is the intention, not the scale, of the killing. It’s an intention to eradicate a group.”
