International Society Condemns CCP Crime of Organ Removal from Living Falun Gong Practitioners

proverb, “Evil can't win over righteousness,” expresses the truth of the
universe. During its persecution of Falun Gong, especially when it comes to the
large-scale organ removal from living Falun Gong practitioners, the Chinese Communist
Party (CCP) exposed its unprecedented evilness. From what we can see at this time,
this inhuman act of organ removal from living people is becoming a uniting force
for global action against the CCP.

On July 6th, the two members of the Canadian
independent investigation team, David Kilgour, former Secretary of State (Asia-Pacific)
for Canada, and David Matas, international human rights lawyer, published the
results of their investigation concerning allegations of organ removal from Falun
Gong practitioners by the CCP. After the report was released, hundreds of international
media outlets focused on the issue. After the shock of hearing of such unprecedented
evil, people awakened. They are looking for ways to stop this crime that makes
the entire human race lower their head in shame.

Human Rights Violation,
Unprecedented in All of History, Demands a Global Response

Soon after
the report was published, the Canadian government announced publicly that it would
investigate the allegations of organ removal from Falun Gong practitioners by
the Chinese Communist regime. Rahim Jaffer, the chair of the Conservative Party,
the incumbent party, suggested on July 13 that Canada and other countries, including
America and European countries, form an international committee and demand that
the CCP government open its doors to an investigation. Mr. Jaffer said, “Not only
should the Canadian government take action, but we also should cooperate with
other governments to solve this matter. [The investigation] must go forward under
existing law, and [findings] should be taken to the international court.”

Dr. Reuven Bulka, an acclaimed scholar and author, and chairman of the Organ Donation
Committee of the Kidney Foundation for Eastern Ontario, said on August 25 in the
Ottawa Citizen that organ harvesting from living Falun Gong practitioners
is “a human rights breach of the worst order and demands a global response.” He
said, “Governments must raise their collective voices in disgust at this, and
condemn it with uncompromising terms.”

North America: Unite and Move
from Human Rights Dialog to Action Against the CCP

According to the
latest news from the Minghui/Clearwisdom website, Mike Goschka, a Michigan state
senator, condemned the CCP's organ removal from living Falun Gong practitioners.
He said: “The practice of harvesting organs from innocent prisoners of conscience
is a crime against humanity,” and said that it cannot be allowed to continue.

two Canadian independent investigators suggested that Western society can no longer
use human rights dialog as the only method to deal with China. Although Canada
hasn't yet publicly shown any action concerning this issue, one can notice
that Canada's discourse with the CCP has changed. At the end of last month,
Canadian Prime Minister Harper expressed during meetings with the Japanese Prime
Minister, that Canada and Japan should “unite against the last communist country
in the world.” Such a remark catches the attention of the world. From recent action
towards Chinese spies, criticism of Chinese human rights, to openly calling for
isolating the CCP, we can see the changes in the attitude of Canada toward the

We can see in North America, in response to America's long-term
plan for putting an end to the CCP's tyranny, that Canada has also taken
the initiative and openly began to unite other countries to isolate the CCP.

Australia: Different Political Parties are Investigating Organ Removal from
Living Falun Gong Practitioners

From what we have seen in Australia,
this kind of cooperation not only crosses national borders, but also can join
different political parties to work on a common cause. On August 18, the Australian
government and its opposition reached an agreement to support an investigation
into the CCP's organ harvesting from living Falun Gong practitioners.

to the Australian Broadcasting Corporation report on August 17, 2006, opposition
foreign affairs spokesman Kevin Rudd stated during an interview that he “supports
the government's proposal that there should be an independent investigation.
These allegations are very serious.”

In July, Australian Senator Andrew
Bartlett joined the “Coalition to Investigate the Persecution of Falun Gong” (CIPFG).
He said during an interview that the Australian government is obligated to take
more action in the face of the allegations of the CCP regime's organ harvesting
from living Falun Gong practitioners, and must assure that the public learns all
the facts.

Europe: From Condemnation of Communist Dictatorship to Parliament

On September 7, 2006, the European Parliament, which consists
of 46 European countries, unanimously passed a resolution calling on the Chinese
Communist Party to release Falun Gong practitioner Bu Dongwei, attorney Gao Zhisheng
and other human rights defenders. Edward McMillan-Scott, Vice President of the
European Parliament, said that arresting Mr. Gao is the CCP's reaction to
the exposure of live organ removal and to his trip to Australia to motivate further
international investigation on the issue.

Edward McMillan-Scott, made a
special trip in May to Beijing to investigate the persecution of Falun Gong practitioners
and the allegation of the CCP's removal of organs from living Falun Gong
practitioners. He met with two Falun Gong practitioners, Cao Dong and Niu Jinping.
Mr. Cao personally witnessed holes in the body of a practitioner where his organs
had been removed.

The European Parliament passed a bill on September 7 calling
on European leaders not to lift the arms embargo to China before China's
human rights condition has improved.

On January 25, 2006, the Council of
Europe Parliamentary Assembly (PACE) held a meeting in Strasbourg, and passed
a resolution condemning the crimes of totalitarian communist regimes.

McMillan-Scott publicly declared his membership in the Coalition to Investigate
the Persecution of Falun Gong (CIPFG) during a rally in Hong Kong supporting the
13 million Chinese people who have quit the Chinese Communist Party and its affiliated
organizations. The rally was held on the morning of August 26, 2006. The rally
was organized by the Epoch Times newspaper and the Service Center for Quitting
the CCP in Hong Kong. Mr. McMillan-Scott also published a joint statement with
members of the legislative council in Hong Kong, including Hon Chun-yan, calling
on lawyers around the world to protest to their local Chinese embassies and consulates
regarding the recent secret arrest and torture of renowned human rights lawyer
Gao Zhisheng, and to urge the Chinese authorities to immediately release Mr. Gao.

August 15, Mr. David Howarth, a member of the British Parliament, said that the
reports from the CIPFG shows that the problems are very serious and that what
has been happening in China is shameful. He believes that “the UK government and
all of the Western governments should demand the Chinese government to come up
with explanations.”

On September 4, members of the Parliament of the six
parties in Sweden made a joint declaration, asking the CCP to stop the crime of
the live organ harvesting from Falun Gong practitioners. The declaration stated
that the initiators of the declaration requested the Swedish government to take
a position with other countries in the European Union, Council of Europe, and
UN to force the CCP regime to immediately allow investigation of all Falun Gong
practitioners and other prisoners of conscience held in prisons, labor camps,
detention centers, hospitals and mental facilities. They also requested that the
Swedish government help stop the crime of organ stealing in China.

Forces of Justice are Uniting

On September 8, two Canadian members
of the investigation attended a press conference hosted by Per Clausen of Denmark,
Member of the Central Board of the Red-Green Alliance, which centered around the
reports on the investigation of live organ harvesting from Falun Gong practitioners.
Mr. Clausen said: “I'm going to ask the Danish government, whether they will
act on the Chinese human rights and Falun Gong issue. We have discussed often
what we can do in our country. Today's meeting gave us many ideas.”

Matas said: “I have been in many countries, and there are politicians in every
country who responded eagerly, just like Per Clausen who is holding the meeting
today. Some democracy parties provided much help. Some media and non-governmental
organizations paid strong attention to the issue. I believe, wherever we go, there
will be many people who will join us, and who will treat this issue seriously.”

forces of justice have been uniting and increasing, from North America to Europe
and Australia; from governments to the general public, from the media to different
levels of officials, from incumbent parties to opposition parties, and from one
country to another. History will prove that when the dignity and basic rights
of lives are in danger, human beings join hands across nationalities, races, regions,
parties, beliefs and organizations, and they will stand together to eliminate
the evil.
