I have been researching, writing and speaking on the killing of Falun Gong for their organs in China now for over ten years. In the effort to combat the killing of Falun Gong for their organs in China, I have been front and centre along with David Kilgour and Ethan Gutmann. None of us are Falun Gong practitioners. None of us have ever been Falun Gong practitioners. None of us have any relatives who are Falun Gong practitioners. None of us have Chinese ancestry. None of us have any personal or family ties to China.
In general, my own view is that a group which is victimized should assume leadership in the combat against its victimization.… READ MORE...
In concentration camps throughout China, practitioners of the spiritual discipline Falun Gong have been detained with the approval of the Chinese communist regime since 1999 simply for practicing their belief. During the spring of 2006, much evidence of the most ghastly aspect of the persecution emerged. Falun Gong practitioners have been executed for their organs.
The existence of forced organ harvesting from living Falun Gong practitioners for transplantation has been proven beyond any doubt. From 2002 to 2006, more than 41,500 organ transplants were done in China.… READ MORE...
Text of David Kilgour’s speech to the Knesset of Israel

When human dignity is denied in a major way in China, it can threaten us all, so I hope the legislators and peoples in both our countries will do what is correct without misplaced fear.… READ MORE...
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.… READ MORE...
