imgresBy 

BEIJING— A Beijing man who supplied information to a dissident-run U.S.-based news website has been detained on charges he made up stories that disparaged the Chinese government, police said Tuesday.

Xiang Nanfu was accused of providing false stories to Boxun.com that authorities harvested organs and buried people alive, according to a police statement. It said Xiang worked with Boxun.com to incite public dissatisfaction against the government.

Last week, China announced the detention of a prominent journalist, Gao Yu. She was accused of leaking a document from the ruling Communist Party to a publication abroad.

APRIL 28, 2014 — If you accuse a global superpower like China of harvesting organs from a persecuted segment of its population, you’d better be ready for some backlash.Since co-authoring the report A Bloody Harvest with fellow U of M alumnus David Kilgour [BA/1962], international human rights lawyer David Matas had his life threatened, saw his work labeled “extremist”, has been banned from presenting his findings in Russia’ received (with Kilgour) the 2009 Human Rights Award from the International Society for Human Rights’ and was nominated for the 2010 Nobel Peace Prize. For Matas, the size of his opponent seems irrelevant; if he sees them committing crimes against humanity, he digs in his heels and takes them on.

273247by NTD Television

Following the exposure of Chinese Communist Party’s live organ harvesting from Falun Gong practitioners, more and more secret investigations have been conducted to identify the authenticity of the allegation. The Slaughter is a new book soon to be released in August. Written by former U.S. think tank researcher Ethan Gutmann, this book illustrates the live organ harvesting of Falun Gong practitioners by a doctor who eye witnessed the entire process.

Recently, Doctors Against Forced Organ Harvesting interviewed former U.S. think tank researcher Ethan Gutmann about his new book The Slaughter, a painstaking collective investigation and records of live organ harvesting of more than 100 witnesses.

Among them was a surgeon with a peerless reputation for integrity and candor. He has personal and direct knowledge of the organ harvesting of Falun Gong in the Chinese mainland, said Gutmann. On August 12 when the book is released, the experience and identity of the doctor will be revealed.

Parliamentarians Against Forced Organ Harvesting Forms In Asia

Parliamentarians Against Forced Organ Harvesting Forms In Asiaby NTD Television

Upon the insistent exposure of the CCP’s brutal persecution of Falun Gong, especially the crimes of live organ harvesting from Falun Gong practitioners, many more international communities have stood up for justice demanding the end of the persecution. Recently, Parliamentarians Against Forced Organ Harvesting (PAFOH) in Asia branch was created, with 27 parliamentarians from Taiwan, Australia and Hong Kong.

Since early 2014, International Care Association of Organ Transplant and Human Rights Law Foundation in Taiwan have pushed forward the establishment of PAFOH.

Falun Gong, the Government of China and Organ Pillaging

David Kilgour, Taipaiby  Taipai Times

To form any trade agreement with China requires consideration on a raft of issues ranging from labor standards and environmental protection, to human rights. It also means admitting that China is ruled by oligarchs and plutocrats, has no regard for the rule of law and allows state-sponsored organ harvesting.

“I don‘t know why any rational person would want to [sign] an agreement with China in any matter… Personally, I wouldn’t even enter an agreement with China selling popcorn,” says David Kilgour, a former member of the Canadian parliament who is internationally known for his commitment to ending human rights abuses across the globe.

It was a message Kilgour delivered during his visit to Taipei earlier this month. Having served as a member of parliament for 27 years, during which he did a stint as Secretary of State for Asia-Pacific between 2002 and 2003, the former politician has been a long-term observer of Taiwan’s democratization. To show his support for the Sunflower movement, Kilgour arrived on April 8, and immediately went to the then-occupied Legislative Yuan where he gave speeches outside and talked at length to protestors.

Herb Gray / Canada-Israel Relations / Antisemitism / Love of Neighbour

by David Kilgour

Agudath Israel Congregation – Ottawa – 26 April 2014

Rabbi Barry Schlesinger and members of the congregation, Shalom Shabbat.Thank you for the honour of speaking to you this morning on the Numbers/Leviticus injunction ( 19:16): “Do not be indifferent to the bloodshed inflicted on your fellow man.” There are few limits on what this implies for today, so permit me to discuss briefly four important issues: Herb Gray, Canada/Israel relations, the plague of antisemitism and love of neighbour.

Rt. Hon. Herb Gray

The passing of Herb Gray is a large loss for Canada. I was privileged to sit with him in Jean Chretien’s cabinet for seven years, where he was a tower of wisdom and respect for all. He would often close debate on issues, drawing on what others had said to reach a consensus in the national interest.  He lived his life according to the Jewish values of ‘caring and sharing’, with all they imply in terms of social justice and respect for all. At the service yesterday, many examples of Herb’s practice of these values were cited.

Europe Must Help End Forced Organ Harvesting in China

McMillan-ScottBy  | April 25, 2014

On Dec. 12, 2013, the European Parliament passed a resolution (that I sponsored) unequivocally condemning the Chinese regime’s forced organ harvesting, especially from Falun Gong prisoners of conscience, and calling for an EU investigation into the practice.

The same week, a U.S. congressional sub-committee on Asia & Pacific adopted a parallel resolution, and a 1.5-million signature petition was presented to the United Nations.

This global response came on top of a series of similar resolutions by parliaments and professional associations in recent times.

These actions are ending the credibility gap about the genocidal crime of selecting and killing prisoners, especially Falun Gong practitioners, for body parts. Falun Gong are a benign, Buddha-school of qigong spiritual exercises, once practiced by 70–100 million in China. Today they are the only prisoners in China to be blood- and urine-tested as part of the selection process, and thousands have been tissue-matched and then literally killed to order at 1 of the 169 transplant centers across China. Some 10,000 operations are carried out each year and the organs mostly come from prisoners, because organ donation hardly exists in China, for cultural reasons.

2014 Global Event to Stop Organ Harvesting Crimes Against Falun Dafa Practitioners in China

Global.Event

April 25, 1999 changed many people’s lives. On that day, more than ten thousand Falun Gong practitioners went to the State Council Appeals Office in Beijing, to peacefully uphold their right to freedom of belief. When the persecution of Falun Gong was fully unleashed not long afterwards, practitioners overseas also went to Chinese embassies or consulates to appeal in support of their fellow practitioners in China and to clarify the facts about Falun Gong. Fourteen years have since gone by, and practitioners often point to the April 25 event as a pivotal point in their lives.

Every year Falun Gong practitioners commemorate the anniversary of the April 25 appeal by demonstrating the Falun Gong exercises, exposing the persecution, and collecting signatures on a petition calling for the UN to investigate the CCP’s crimes of organ harvesting from living prisoners of conscience.

Why Is Falun Gong Persecuted?

China Uncensored( Video 1 ) So much evidence points towards a systematic organ harvesting mainly of living Falun Gong practitioners. To understand why the persecution of Falun Gong, also known as Falun Dafa began in China, we need to take a look at how former Chinese leader and the man who started the persecution Jiang Zemin came to power. Jiang came to power following the Tiananmen Square Massacre and the ousting of two important leaders in the Chinese Communist Party, and Zhao Ziyang and Hu Yaobang, who’s death sparked the Tiananmen Protests. But Jiang Zemin’s position was shaky. He would need something to cement his power.

( Video 2 ) During the largest gathering in Beijing since the Tiananmen Square Massacre, 10,000 Falun Gong practitioners peacefully gathered around the central appeals office next to Zhongnanhai on April 25, 1999 to appeal for their right to freely practice Falun Gong, also known as Falun Dafa. Former Chinese leader Jiang Zemin used this as a pretext to launch a nationwide crackdown that lead to a brutal persecution that continues to this day, and allowed the creation of the gestapo-like 610 Office.

( Video 3 ) What are the consequences of genocide? In 1999, Jiang Zemin declared that the Communist Party of China had to eradicate Falun Gong or else. In doing so, Jiang Zemin, and supporters like Zhou Yongkang, Bo Xilai, Li Dongsheng, Luo Gan and Zeng Qinghong, amassed massive power and untold fortunes through the persecution. But now, current Chinese leader Xi Jinping is waging an anti-corruption campaign that’s taking out members of Jiang’s Shanghai clique one by one. But is there more too it than meets the eye? Find out on the final installment of China Uncensored’s three part series on Falun Gong and why it’s persecuted in China.

Top Chinese Transplant Official Says There’s No Plan to Stop Using Prisoner Organs

WangHaibo1339266555184_1339266555184_rBy Epoch Times | April 11, 2014

Wang Haibo, an unofficial spokesperson on China’s organ transplant policies, recently told a well-known German journalist that the Chinese regime had no intention of announcing a schedule for weaning itself off the use of organs from executed prisoners.

“The question is, ‘When can China solve the problem of the shortage of donor organs?’ I wish we could end it tomorrow. But it requires a process,” he said in a radio program on ARD, a major German public broadcast network.

“Many things are beyond our control,” he added. “Therefore, we can not announce any time schedule.”

The journalist, Ruth Kirchner, said that Wang agreed to the interview “after long hesitation, because organ donation connected to the death penalty is a sensitive issue in China.”

Taipei Protests/ Misgovernance In China/ Taiwan And China Economies

1246by Hon. David Kilgour, JD.

Dear fellow democrats,
Permit me to congratulate the many thousands of you for having demonstrated your principles to be outside the Yuan every day for almost three weeks in rain and shine. I understand that public support for your “Sunflower Student Movement”, the coalition of students, academics, civic organizations and others, has been building since March 18, and that there was a huge citizen rally-some say as many as half a million- here in the capital on Sunday last week.

The Taipei media indicates today that the students will leave the Yuan on Thursday, thanks to the courage and integrity of Speaker Wang Jin-pyng. Permit me as a former Deputy Speaker of Canada’s House of Commons (1993-97) to say how proud his public service above any partisan interest no doubt makes all independent speakers around the world.

International Transplant Community Raises Voice Against China’s Abuses

cntransplant1-1024x658By Epoch Times | April 7, 2014

Two foremost international transplant organizations have penned an open letter to Xi Jinping, the leader of the Chinese Communist Party, calling China’s system of organ transplantation corrupt and “scorned by the international community,” while exhorting the Party leader to make thoroughgoing changes.

The publication of the missive jointly signed by the Transplantation Society and the Declaration of Istanbul Custodian Group, which appears in the journal Transplantation this month, represents a sharp break from the careful and nonconfrontational approach that the international transplant establishment has for years taken toward China. In the past, voices of criticism were hardly to be heard above the enthusiastic promises of cooperation and tinkling of cocktail glasses at diplomatic receptions.

Students Object to Award for Chinese Transplant Official

huang-jiefu-u2972433-676x450By Epoch Times | April 1, 2014

Hong Kong University (HKU) defended its honorary doctorate award this month to one of the architects of China’s highly criticized organ transplant system after the University of Hong Kong Students’ Union criticized the decision. 

After meeting with China’s former vice minister for health, Huang Jiefu, the union issued the critical statement, pointing to Huang’s admission that the Chinese regime had taken organs from prisoners sentenced to death. A spokesperson for the students’ union said Huang told them he did not know where the organs came from, that he represented only the recipient, a position that did not seem to square with his own admissions of removing organs from executed prisoners.

Update and next steps: The killing of Falun Gong for their organs

david-matasRevised remarks to the European Economic and Social Committee

19 March 2014, Brussels, Belgium

by David Matas

I want in this talk to cover three topics: the evidence on the killing of Falun Gong for their organs; recent developments and next steps to combat organ transplant abuse in China.

Evidence

I am a lawyer in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada in private practice. My clients are primarily refugee claimants seeking protection in Canada. I have been engaged in this professional work for almost all of my professional career.

Because my clients flee human rights violations, I have become familiar through my work with the human rights situation in many countries, including China. I try, as best I can, not only to assist my clients in obtaining protection, but also to combat the human rights violations which caused them to flee. In addition to tribunal and court work for individual clients, I have become involved in research, writing, advocacy and activism in the broader human rights scene.

Issue of China’s Forced Organ Harvesting from Falun Gong Raised at UNHRC

UNHRC-5By Epoch Times | March 31, 2014

The Chinese regime’s macabre practice of killing Falun Gong practitioners for their organs was raised before the United Nations Human Rights Council in Geneva recently by the Vancouver-based Lawyer’s Rights Watch Canada.

Speaking at a session reviewing the UNHRC’s report on China’s human rights record, Vani Selvarajah of Lawyer’s Rights Watch Canada reiterated a recent European Parliament resolution demanding an immediate end to the forced harvesting of organs from prisoners of conscience in China, “mainly Falun Gong practitioners.”
