Burasi Canakkale Newspaper (Turkey): "Falun Gong: Standing Rock Solid in Face of Inhuman Torture"

From August 15th-18th, 2007, a large newspaper in the northwest of Turkey, Burasi Canakkale, published a series of articles by a famous reporter, Ali Can Altun, entitled, Falun Gong: Standing Rock Solid in Face of Inhuman Torture, a persecution that continues in concentration camps and reports evidence of the persecution. These articles laid out systematically is what Falun Gong is about, the Chinese Communist Party’s brutal persecution and the CCP atrocities of organ harvesting from live Falun Gong practitioners.

The article got straight to the point right at the beginning, “Falun Dafa (also known as Falun Gong), is a first-class cultivation method which brings peace to one's heart, health to one's body, and wisdom to one's mind. Seven years after its introduction to the public in 1992, the practice was cracked down on by the totalitarian Chinese Communist regime. Hundreds of thousands of practitioners were kidnapped and sent to concentration camps where they were tortured or even disappeared.”

The article continued, “So far Falun Gong has been the only authentic practice in the world that truly cultivates both nature and longevity. The practice follows the principles of the universe. Five easy exercises are taught absolutely free of charge. Since its introduction to the general public by Mr. Li Hongzhi in 1992, Falun Gong quickly gained popularity. By 1999 there were nearly 100 million people practising in mainland China.”

To date Falun Gong is practised in nearly eighty countries and regions, winning over two thousand seven hundred awards from various governments and organisations. Falun Gong’s founder has been nominated four times for the Nobel Peace prize.”

The article also cited concrete data to demonstrate Falun Gong’s miraculous health benefits: “According to the Chinese regime’s official statistics collected prior to the crack down on twelve thousand practitioners, 93.4% of Falun Gong practitioners had been sick prior to practicing. The overall rate of health improvement was as high as 99.1%, with 58.5% complete recovery and 80.3% obvious improvement. 96.5% of practitioners felt their mental well being improved dramatically.”

The article then exposed the CCP’s brutal persecution and its atrocities of organ harvesting from live Falun Gong practitioners with almost two and a half pages of writing illustrated by multiple photos:

“More and more people took up the practice as it benefited both mind and body. According to statistics, in 1999 nearly 100 million people in China practiced Falun Gong, which far outnumbered the CCP members, causing the CCP to panic. On the 20th of July 1999 out of personal jealousy the then CCP dictator Jiang Zemin manipulated the entire state apparatus to launch a massive campaign of propaganda, lies and unprecedented brutalities against millions of Falun Gong practitioners.”

“Executing genocidal policies of ‘ruin their reputations, bankrupt them financially and eliminate their bodies,’ the CCP’s persecution is the most atrocious in the history of mankind. To date hundreds of thousands of practitioners are detained, over one hundred thousand were sent to labour camps, at least six thousand received prison sentences, thousands were sent to mental hospitals and injected with nerve-damaging drugs. According to incomplete statistics, during the eight years since July 1999, three thousand and eighty Falun Gong practitioners have been confirmed via non-governmental organisations to have been tortured to death.”

The article continued, “In March 2006 the incident of organ harvesting from live Falun Gong practitioners at Sujiatun concentration camp came to light and shocked the world. In secret concentration camps, large number of Falun Gong practitioners are kept as living banks of unwilling human organ donors to be killed atrociously on demand when their organs are required by the CCP to fetch extortionate prices. Their bodies are then cremated to be rid of evidence.”

“In July 2006 after nine months of independent investigation, the former Canadian Secretary of State for Asia-Pacific, David Kilgour, and a famous international human rights lawyer, David Matas, released a Report into Allegations of Organ Harvesting of
Falun Gong Practitioners in China, confirming that there has been and continues today to be large scale organ seizures from unwilling Falun Gong practitioners.”

“The most horrible thing about organ harvesting is that it is done while practitioners, who are all unwilling donors, are still alive. The bodies of those with organs stolen are cremated directly to be rid of evidence. The Chinese Communist regime is behind the practice and pocks the profit made from the illegal trade of these organs. The crimes committed by the CCP are more brutal than that of the Nazi.”

In the end the article called out, “In face of such brutal killings on earth, those who still have conscience and a sense of justice, what are you waiting for? Let’s step forward bravely to stop the inhuman brutality together.”
