International protestors gathered on October 9 in front of the Chinese Theater on Hollywood Boulevard in Los Angeles. It was the day before the 30th anniversary of ‘World Mental Health Day.’ They held torture displays to show support for people whom the CCP persecuted under the pretext of “mental illness.” The event’s coordinator, Jie Lijian, stated, “The CCP is the largest mentally ill patient in the world.”
Dissidents living in exile in the United States displayed the numerous tortures and persecutions they suffered at the hands of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) at Corning Hospital on World Mental Health Day.
By handing out leaflets, the campaign also educates international people about how the CCP commits state crimes. Every day, countless people are imprisoned in psychiatric facilities, tortured, and murdered.
Jie Lijian said, “The most terrifying is electroacupuncture torture, which causes fatal damage to health. Even if many people are released, the aftermath of the persecution will accompany them for life.”
According to Jie Lijian, the well-known Dong Yaoqiong, Li Tiantian, Zhang Zhan, Li Yuxuan, and the 12 Hong Kong people, among others, were victims. The CCP built the Angkang hospital to house those with mental illness.
Jie Lijian continued, “There is no such evil system to be found in the world.”
Deaths of ‘splashing ink girl’ Dong Yaoqiong and her father
According to Chinese-language Da Ji Yuan, Dong Yaoqiong, a Hunan girl well-known as a “splashing ink girl,” was sent three times to a psychiatric hospital. Her footage on @feefeefly Twitter account became viral on July 4, 2018, showing her splattering ink on a poster of Xi Jinping in Shanghai and criticizing his rule as “tyranny.”
The Zhuzhou Third Hospital detained Dong Yaoqiong on July 16, 2018.
Dong Jianbiao and two lawyers went to Zhuzhou Third Hospital nine days later. However, he failed to see his daughter. As a result, Yunnan National Security arrested Dong Jianbiao on suspicion of endangering public safety.
Dong Yaoqiong posted a video on Twitter on November 30, 2020, with the status, “What did I do wrong? Did I break the law? Or do I really have a mental problem? Before I splashed ink, I was still working in a unit in Shanghai. You can ask my colleagues about my mental health. Is something wrong? I decided to tweet now because I’m not afraid of them now, I’m not afraid of them anymore. If you put me in a (psychiatric) hospital again, no problem, I’ll never get out for the rest of my life, I admit it too.”
All contact with Dong Yaoqiong was lost shortly after the tweet.
On January 21, 2021, Dong Yaoqiong tweeted that her father was undergoing surgery. Her situation was that the CCP owed her two months’ pay. She and her father were not permitted to look for work. She was almost broke. Anyone who contacted her had become a ‘political prisoner’ and would be implicated.
On February 12, 2021, Dong Jianbiao had a conflict with Dong Yaoqiong’s mother after Dong Yaoqiong was sent to a mental hospital for the third time. As a result, Dong Jianbiao was arrested and sentenced to three years in prison.
Dong Jianbiao was beaten to death with injuries all over his body at Hunan Chaling Prison on September 23, 2022.
On September 24, under the coercion of state security, Dong Jianbiao’s son (Dong Yaoqiong’s younger brother) signed for his body’s cremation on the same day.
Jie Lijian called international people to work together to pressure the CCP to stop using mental illness (as an excuse) to create human rights disasters and immediately release all victims of “mental illness.”
He said The Global Magnitsky Human Rights Accountability Act sanctioned officials and their family members who violated human rights by banning them from entering the U.S., freezing their foreign assets, and making these monsters pay for their evil crimes.
