On April 3rd and 4th 2006, Falun Gong practitioners from Europe, Taiwan, North America and Oceania held a rally and a news conference in front of the UN Office in Geneva and the UN Human Rights Committee, strongly condemning the crimes at the CCP concentration camps, where Falun Gong practitioners' organs have been removed and their bodies burned to eliminate the evidence. The practitioners urgently called on the UN to launch an immediate investigation into the situation. Swiss MPs and delegates from International NGOs expressed their condemnation of the atrocities, and their sympathy and support for Falun Gong practitioners in different ways.
Sylvia G. Iriondo, Chairman of "M.A.R. Por Cuba" from International NGOs in the UN (the branch in Cuba) stated:
We are condemning the extremely cruel events in the Sujiatun Concentration Camp in Northeast China. According to information given by several witnesses and media reports, 4,000 Falun Gong practitioners have already been persecuted to death there. Their organs were removed when they were still alive and then their bodies cremated.
We feel very painful whenever we hear that those who are asking for freedom of belief and speech as stated in the International Human Rights Convention are being persecuted.
We are urgently requesting the international community to together call for the end of crimes against humanity and take action to rescue the 2,000 Falun Gong practitioners who are still locked up in the Concentration Camp. The free and civilized world cannot keep silent and remain completely indifferent to these horrible incidents happening right now.
Many members and leaders of M.A.R. Por Cuba have experienced persecution themselves and their family members all have suffered persecution and violent infringement of their human rights under the dictatorship in Cuba for about a half century. These persecutions include a team for carrying out a death sentence. We can feel your sufferings and we are standing with you, shoulder to shoulder.
Dr. Charles Grave from the International Organization of Beliefs stated:
The International Organization of Beliefs supports Falun Gong and is shocked at the action of removing organs from human bodies in the CCP Concentration Camp. We hope that the incident will be made known to the world and be dealt with in the First Human Rights Council Conference of the UN.
Mr. Oscar Freysinger, a congressman from Berne in Switzerland, stated:
Communism has committed big crimes against humanity. When western countries turn blind eyes, they are accessories as well.
The horror has finally been disclosed.
When reading Nine Commentaries on the Communist Party, I felt desperate and helpless.
Just as if I was walking into a nine-level hell, hand in hand with Dante, a poet of Italy, I was experiencing that terrible horror in my spirit.
The "Nine Commentaries" should be distributed in all schools. All media should promote it as well in order to disclose the lies of that so-called great steersman, and show the barbarity and cruelty of the so-called "Cultural Revolution" to the world's people.
What the "Nine Commentaries" state are all facts. You don't need to say anything more and read other books or write something either: the facts are right before you.
The red empire and its subordinates are always ready for attacking. That is why the world's people all show special concern over their threat, and that is also why the world's people would rather think more about money and something theoretical than look at their actions. The weakness of western countries is indicated by the fact that they want to cover up this incident and avoid publishing any comments from the "Nine Commentaries" so that they can suppress information about the bloody tragedy of genocide.
Crowds of followers, who are wild about Mao' thoughts and have grown up living a dissipated life, have congregated again under the Communist Party's flag, and its waving shadow has shut out these dark hands.
These followers, however, seem very pleased. The flag is red so they cannot see the bloodstains on it.
Mr. Antonio Hodges, Chairman of Green Party in Geneva stated:
People in the west who have benefited from the economy of China tend to keep silent, but the fact is that not all of us have accepted the horrible and repeated actions of infringing on human rights of Falun Dafa practitioners. Therefore, all democratic countries in the world should condemn the atrocities in China conducted by the CCP, among which the incident happening at Sujiatun Concentration Camp is the latest, most lamentable action.
Mr. Rene Wadlow, a delegate of the Cosmopolite Organization in the UN expressed:
I agree with the value you place on "Truthfulness, Compassion and Tolerance".
We have already pointed out many times the danger and threat brought by forced labour camps and concentration camps in China. The facts of persecution you have just disclosed are very serious. I think it necessary to have the UN investigate this incident. And any assistance you can supply to the investigation will be very useful.
If it is impossible to do an official investigation, I think we must consider the feasibility of letting International NGOs take care of the investigation. And a book entitled "Human Rights Mission: On-the-spot Record, Review from the NGOs" by H.Thoolen and B.Verstaapen is very useful in this field.
Please accept my firm support and best wishes.
