On Friday the 15th of July, practitioners of Falun Gong re-enacted scenes to raise public awareness about the Chinese Communist Party’s (CCP) practice of harvesting organs from living Falun Gong practitioners to sell on the transplantation market. Over 30 labour camps have been reported where these atrocities are taking place. After their organs are stolen, the practitioners’ bodies are cremated to destroy any evidence.

This activity was one of several in Slovakia marking seven years of persecution against Falun Gong. It was in July 1999 that former CCP head Jiang Zemin misused his power to turn the CCP and the country against Falun Gong practitioners. Jiang was jealous of Falun Gong’s popularity after the number of practitioners was found to be higher than the number of Communist Party members. Nearly 3,000 deaths of practitioners have been confirmed in the last seven years whilst the real number is thought to be many times higher.

The re-enactment attracted a lot of attention. A doctor stood by an operating table, on which there lay a patient covered by a blue sheet. The doctor removed something from the patient’s body. It looked very real and some passers-by were almost shocked. Fortunately, on the operation table there was a sign saying: “This is a simulation but in China it is really happening.”

Many people stopped and watched without a word, as if they couldn’t believe their eyes. “Is that really happening?” was frequently asked. Nearby were leaflets that explained more about the persecution of Falun Gong and the CCP’s organ harvesting crimes. Over 300 people signed a petition calling for an end to the human rights atrocities against Falun Gong.

A reporter from Slovak TV came to film the event. He interviewed two practitioners and learned a lot about the persecution of Falun Gong, organ harvesting in China and some of the support for persecuted practitioners from dignitaries such as the Vice President of the European Parliament Mr. Edward McMillan-Scott. He combined these facts into a report, which was broadcast in the national evening news.
