Cannibalism: Chinese communists eating Tibetans and Falun Gong practitioners raw flesh
Posted 3/16/10
Communist Party principles disappeared, however, in the Cultural Revolution. That decade of chaos undermined the party’s legitimacy more than anything else, and it is impossible to exaggerate the savagery that went on. In 1992 I obtained a trove of secret Communist Party documents arresting to large-scale cannibalism during the Cultural Revolution in the Guangxi region of southern China. The documents were given to me by Zheng Yi, a Chinese writer and dissident who had conducted a lengthy investigation into the cannibalism. At first I was skeptical, but he more I read the documents, and the more I talked to Chinese, the more I became convinced that the documents were genuine. They were printed on letterhead and stamped with official seals, listing just how many copies of each were printed-thirty-nine of one, eighteen of another, and so on.

The documents suggest that at least 137 people, and probably hundreds more, were eaten in the towns and villages of Guangxi Province in the late 1960s. In most cases, many people shared a corpse, so the cannibals may have numbered in the thousands. While this apparently was one of the largest episodes of cannibalism anywhere in the world in the last century or more, it is different from most other cases in that those who ate the flesh were not motivated by hunger or by psychopathic illness.

Instead, the compulsion was ideological. The cannibalism took place in public, often organized by Communist Party officials, and people indulged communally to prove their revolutionary ardor. The first person to strip meat from the body of one school principal was the former girlfriend of the man’s son; she wanted to show she had no sympathy for him and was just as “red” as anybody else. At some high schools, students butchered and roasted their teachers and principals in the school courtyard and feasted on the meat to celebrate a triumph over “counterrevolutionaries.” Government-run cafeterias are said to have displayed corpses dangling on meat hooks and to have served human flesh to government employees.

The documents I saw were prepared by the local authorities in the 1980s and are critical of the atrocities that they describe. The following comes from a single page in an account about the Cultural Revolution in Guizhou Province:

A mass meeting for dictatorship was held at Shangsi Junior High School, and twelve people, including cadres, where publicly killed. The livers where ripped out of some of the bodies and taken back to the cafeteria of the county government. Some of the county and commune officials participated.

Also in Shangsi County, in Siyang Commune, the Army Affairs Director went to Hexing Village. He and his partners killed Deng Yanxiong and ripped out his liver and boiled and ate it. He encouraged everybody to eat human liver, saying that this would make them braver. The next day, he arranged the killing of four more people and ripped out their livers, and distributed them to two or three productions teams to show “collective dictatorship.”

Bodies were humiliated and destroyed, so that while the killing was awful, what came next was even worse. Take the case of three women: Lu Yu, of Siyang Commune, Huang Shaoping, a teacher at Guangjiang River Elementary School; Chen Guolian, of Hepu County’s Shikang Township. After they were beaten to death, sticks were poked into their vaginas and their corpses were left naked along the roadside.

In Pubei County’s Beitong Commune, ten hoodlums from the Boxue Work Team tied up Liu Zhengjian and carried him off to the hillside along with his seventeen-year-old daughter. The beat him to death and then gang-raped his daughter. Then they beat the daughter to death with clubs and ripped out her liver and cut off her breast and vagina.

In Dongxing County’s Naqin Commune, in the Nabo Work Team, they wanted to execute Zhang Yueye, but he was still alive after being shot. So the director of the Office Against Speculation forced a detonator inside Zhang’s nasal cavity. With the explosion, Zhang’s blood and flesh flew in the air.

In the fighting in Qinzhou County, a broadcaster from a minor faction, Lu Jiezhen, was captured and stabbed to death. The assailants pulled off her pants, and forced a huge firecracker into her vagina. They lit it and exploded it.

Most of those killed, as elsewhere in China, were former landlords or intellectuals or their descendants. Other s had quarreled with someone powerful, or was made to suffer for the supposed sins of their parents or spouses. One woman was forced to identify and denounce the mutilated corpse of her husband, who had been killed, stripped of his flesh, and mostly eaten. As punishment for hanging loved a “counterrevolutionary”, she was then forced to sleep with his severed head beside her.

Some of those involved in the cannibalism in Guangxi received minor punishments after the Cultural Revolution ended. Wuxuan County expelled ninety-one people from the party for having eaten human flesh, and it demoted or cut the wages of thirty-nine nonparty members, but no one, apparently, faced criminal prosecution. A female deputy head of Wuxuan County, who liked to eat the genitals of men, was dismissed from her post and expelled from the party. She moved away from the county, and her whereabouts are not known.

In 1980, the central government tried the “Gang of Four,” who had helped rule the nation in that period, for killings and other crimes during the Cultural Revolution. But other criminal prosecutions were extremely rare, and at the local levels in China it was normal for people literally to get away with murder. “For the children of the victims, the worst thing is that the murderers were never seriously punished,” Zheng Yi said. “They say that every day on the streets, they see the people who killed and ate their parents.”

Why go into these horrors at such length? Because they are just the ones we know about, the ones that were documented. As the country loosens, many more such horrors may emerge into the public eye to challenge the legitimacy of the regime. Someday, historians will have a field day in China.

if you want to c the actual picture here's the website it looks really brutal

Going to close this thread after seeing how misleading it can get after that. People are not going to look at the minority but China as a whole. Therefore, thread will only leads to hate.
