  • Ruhr News (Germany) Reports on CCP Organ Harvesting from Living Falun Gong Practitioners

    "A large ‘medical operation’ took place on Kortumstraße Street on Monday at noon: a man wore a surgeon's gown and mask and a mannequin 'patient' lay on the surgical table in front of him whose body had been opened, and the ‘doctor’ was taking out the patient’s organs which were still bleeding. The Falun Gong practitioners in Bochum protested the atrocity of harvesting the organs from living people, which is happening in China, through this shocking scene on Falun Dafa Information Day."
  • Blick (Switzerland): Horrible organ trade

    ZÜRICH – A flyer is making the rounds in the country. Whoever accepts this flyer reads about organ harvesting in China. This is an accusation that was confirmed by international experts. One first reads in this flyer, found on Switzerland’s trains, the story of Wang Yuzhi. This forty five year old lady was imprisoned in a Chinese labour camp from 2000 to 2002. The Falun Gong member was force fed after going on a hunger strike. She suffered from being force fed through an oversized tube that was forced through the nose to the stomach. She was fed with her feces and urine.
  • Coburger Tagesblatt Daily Paper (Germany): Meditation to combat crime in China

    COBURG. The passers-by in the Spitalgasse saw yesterday an unusual picture - close to a dozen members of the dangerously suppressed Falun Gong movement in China sending righteous thoughts towards China.

  • St. Gallen Taglatt Newspaper (Switzerland): Bachmann Acquitted

    “This cheque has particular symbolic value,” said Erich Bachmann. He received the cheque worth 2,200 Swiss Francs from Hong Kong’s Ministry of Justice, “after we were acquitted by the highest Court of Appeal, which is comparable to our Federal Court.” What happened? In March 2002, Erich Bachmann and fifteen other Falun Gong practitioners held a protest against the persecution of Falun Gong practitioners in China in a public area in Hong Kong. In 1999, the former President of China ordered this movement to be banned.

    The 66- year- old claims she’s been beaten, force fed and suffered electro-shock therapy at the hands of the Chinese police – all because of her beliefs. Zhen is one of the lucky ones, though, she’s alive ... more than 2300 have been tortured to death.
  • UK Newspaper Sunderland Echo Reports: Stand up and be counted against these atrocities

    It is unbelievable and horrific that in this day and age such atrocities are happening in China. I’m talking about the killing and organ harvesting of prisoners of conscience – transplantation of their corneas, kidneys, liver and hearts. It’s like the holocaust all over again, only in China there is big money in the killings with a booming trade in transplants.

  • European Media Reports that European Union Should Adjust the Unbalanced Relationship with Communist China

    A report in the “European Voice” said that the excessively weak stand of the European Union in free trade against China is very disappointing. The report also pointed out that the same situation happened in the human rights issues too. Not only is the dialogue between China and the European Union weak, but so is it between China and the fifteen European countries (including Norway and Switzerland). China has greatly enhanced its defense ability in international negotiation; however, in fact its human right situation has not truly improved. The recent incident of a large number of Falun Gong practitioners being forced to “donate” organs is an obvious example.
  • Swedish Oriental Daily Newspaper Exposes the CCP's Crimes of Organ Harvesting from Living Falun Gong Practitioners

He led his investigation together with attorney David Matas, a famous advocate for human rights and defender of torture victims."
