  • Speech by Vice Chairman of CIPFG-Europe: "The CCP is Clearly Doomed"

    "We already have numerous documented first-hand experiences of the persecution, but we believe that in time the case against the CCP will be overwhelming. We must strive to reach the point where its evil leaders and their intricate web of subordinates can no longer withstand the weight of international pressure to end the persecution, and to allow Falun Gong practitioners and all other citizens of China to lead peaceful lives under democracy, free from all fear of persecution for their beliefs. China and Chinese people can only have future without CCP and this day is not far away."
  • German Student Who Does Not Practise Falun Gong Makes a Video to Exposé the Persecution

    Recently, a teenage student called Steffi gave me a call and asked me to help produce a two-minute film about the persecution of Falun Gong by the Chinese Communist Party (CCP). I was a little bit surprised because Steffi doesn’t actually practise Falun Gong. But she is concerned about the human rights abuses against practitioners in China and wanted to do something to make a difference so I was very happy to help her.
  • UK Parliament Seminar Speech: “Bloody Harvest: Some Unpalatable Truths as the 2008 China Olympics Approach”

    "The Coalition to Investigate the Persecution of Falun Gong (CIPFG) in China now has hundreds of legislators, lawyers, doctors, academics, religious and spiritual leaders in more than twenty countries who are ready to go to China to investigate our report findings. They should be allowed to do so. The Olympic Games and organ snatching cannot occur at the same time in China. The Olympic Charter and movement, including its respect for human dignity and national Olympic committees in seventy countries, require better. I invite the participants in this seminar to examine ways you can help to end this terrible practice. Murdering innocent people for their organs is a new form of evil on this planet."
  • French MP Appeals to Foreign Minister to Rescue Falun Gong Practitioner Mr. Ma Jian

    Falun Gong practitioner Mr. Ma Jian, general manager of the French PCM Pump Company for China and the northern Asian region, was arrested in his Beijing office by Chinese police on February 28th 2007. It was reported that police took Ma Jian to a brainwashing centre. This serious incident is a gross abuse of citizen’s rights and severely affected the operation of the French Company. The French people and political circles are very concerned.
  • Chairman of the Peace and Culture Association in Spain Condemns the Persecution of Falun Gong

    "All reports by the Human Rights Committee of the UN, the Parliament of the European Union, the Parliament of NATO and organisations of human rights such as Amnesty International and Human Rights Observation have mentioned the cruel violation and persecution of the most basic human rights by the CCP government. It has caused many innocent people to suffer from the persecution because of their faith. As the Chairman of the Peace and Culture, my mission is to vindicate the freedom of all people, respect the truth, respect justice equality and tolerance. Such a situation of suppressing individual freedom in faith by force, I firmly oppose it."
  • Profil Magazine (Austria): Lost in Transplantation

    Following his recent interview with the United Nations’ Special Rapporteur on Torture, Manfred Nowak, Robert Misik of Profil, the second largest magazine in Austria, published an article detailing Matas and Kilgour’s finding that a source of organs in Chinese transplants is Falun Gong practitioners. Mr. Nowak, the United Nations Commission on Human Rights’ Special Rapporteur on Torture, demanded a response to the series of allegations from the Chinese government within the week.
  • European Parliament Continues Efforts to Rescue Falun Gong Practitioner Bu Dongwei

    On February 13th, 2007, Jean-Louis COUGNON, Head of Division, European Parliament, wrote a letter to Falun Gong practitioner Bu Dongwei's wife, Mrs. Lou Hongwei, informing her that the European Parliament will continue its efforts to rescue Bu Dongwei. The letter motioned that on September 7th, 2006, the European Parliament unanimously passed a resolution for a report on EU-China relations, calling on the Chinese regime to release Falun Gong practitioner Bu Dongwei.
  • Letter to IOC from David Kilgour and David Matas

    "Regrettably, it confirms our earlier conclusion, that the government of China and its agencies in numerous parts of the country, in particular in hospitals but also detention centers and ‘people’s courts’ have put to death a large but unknown number of Falun Gong prisoners of conscience since 1999. Their vital organs, including hearts, kidneys, livers and corneas were virtually, simultaneously seized involuntarily for sale at high prices, sometimes to foreigners who normally face long waits for voluntary donations of such organs in their home countries.”
  • People Treasured Seeing the Divine Performing Arts in Berlin

    “I appreciate New Tang Dynasty Television for providing us with this opportunity to see such a wonderful performance. I have totally changed my attitude toward life and come to know the true meaning of life,” said a Chinese person, after seeing the last show by NTDTV’s Divine Performing Arts in Berlin, Germany on February the 28th 2007. He is not the only one to say so.
  • Human Rights Lawyer Condemns the Singapore Government for Appeasing the CCP

    Recently, six practitioners were charged by the Singapore authorities with assembling without a permit and underwent a trial inaccessible to the public, media and family members. The secret trial caused extensive concern. Human rights lawyer Mr. Ravi’s certificate to practise law was revoked by the Singapore government due to his defence of Falun Gong practitioners.
  • Austrian Foreign Minister Shows Concern over the CCP’s Illegal Organ Harvesting

    At the end of November 2006, Petra Bayr, Elisabeth Hlavac and some other Austrian Parliamentarians wrote a formal letter to the Foreign Minister and the Health Minister asking for replies on the issue of the Chinese Communist Party’s (CCP) practice of harvesting organs from living Falun Gong practitioners. In her reply, the Foreign Minister emphasised that Austria supported the efforts of organizations to investigate Chinese prisons, especially the UN Special Rapporteur on torture.
  • MP from Belgium: “I fully support the investigation by the CIPFG”

    "We see a continuing violation of human rights, which even cannot be openly protested against without facing the consequence of immediate liquidation. It is also impossible for organizations to help people, because of the ever increasing corruption and abuse of power in China, as seems from the reports of Amnesty International. The most distinguished group of victims at the moment are Falun Gong practitioners. There is a whole case of evidence about the brutal persecution of this group of people."
  • Irish Consultant Psychiatrist: “The spotlight of the world needs to be trained on these evil practices”

    "As a medical doctor I cannot feel kinship with my colleagues in China whilst these abuses are being perpetrated by other medics who abuse science, turning healing into an instrument of torture. We all have a collective responsibility to ask the Chinese Communist Party to end these practices against Falun Gong and admit responsibility for past sufferings."
  • UN Representative Sends Best Wishes on Establishment of the European Brach of the Coalition to Investigate the Persecution of Falun Gong

    "As I am concerned with issues of spiritual liberty within the United Nations human rights procedures, I have been concerned with government repression against the Falun Gong since the start of the government ban. I believe that it is important to continue to stress the need for the Chinese government to respect the "Declaration on the Elimination of All Forms of Intolerance and of Discrimination Based on Religion or Belief" for the Falun Gong as well as for other religious and spiritual movements."
  • Chairman of the German International Society for Human Rights: “The persecution of Falun Gong is surely one of the saddest chapters in the history of mankind”

    "Since the beginning of this persecution in July 1999, based on our information, several hundred thousand arrests already had taken place – many thousands are being detained in forced labour camps, prisons and psychiatric institutes without legal procedures, merely because of their peaceful ideology. In these places, they are exposed to systematic torture. Currently over 3,000 known victims have died as a result of the tortures in these camps, the estimated number of unknown/unreported cases is not included."
