  • NGO Chairman Speaks on the Establishment of CIPFG-Europe

    "As we all know the human rights situation in China has not improved in the last few years, despite a dramatic economic improvement. The enormous flow of money into the country has in fact given the communist regime more resources to carry out oppression and persecution. And the recent information about organ harvesting from living Falun Gong practitioners makes it all the more important to put pressure on the Chinese government."
  • Dutch MP's Statement of Support for the Establishment of CIPFG-Europe

    "CIPFG is a global alliance to uncover the truth of the persecution of Falun Gong and particularly the organ harvesting. I would like to support this Coalition and its investigative teams around the world to go to China. The CIPFG-teams should get unrestricted access to all detention facilities including labour camps and mental institutions. Such access should be made available immediately without delay. I urge all governments, including the Dutch and the European authorities, to support this appeal and to exercise more pressure on China to come to this result."
  • United Kingdom: Coalition to Investigate the Persecution of Falun Gong (European Branch) Is Established

    More than 40 important members of government and prominent members of society from European countries have joined CIPFG-Europe, including members of parliament, senators, lawyers, clergymen, chairmen of NGOs, doctors, writers, journalists and officials from major enterprises and governments in over a dozen countries.
  • Vice Chairman Speaks at Press Conference to Announce Establishment of CIPFG-Europe

    "We have organised today’s press conference to announce the establishment of the Coalition to Investigate the Persecution of Falun Gong (CIPFG). Over forty VIPs from across Europe have joined the European Coalition so far, among them MPs, senators, lawyers, barristers, clergy, NGO directors, doctors, writers, journalists and other leading company and government officials from over ten countries. We hope that the formation of this kind of coalition will signal a new chapter in the struggle to uncover the truth about the heinous crimes the Chinese government has perpetrated against Falun Gong practitioners over a period of nearly eight years."
  • Sweden: Letter to the Singapore Goverment

    "It has come to my knowledge that a show trial against six Falun Gong practitioners in Singapore began on January 22nd in Singapore for having delivered flyers about the truth of the persecution of Falun Gong practitioners in China. The court was held with only eight seats for the judge and defendants etc, neither media nor relatives were allowed to be present. I believe that Singapore wants to be considered as a part of the international community. But now it seems as Singapore is walking hand in hand with the biggest dictatorship in the world, and is unfortunately influenced by the Chinese Communist Party ... "
  • Press Conference Speech by Director of Czech NGO Human Rights without Borders

    " ... I invite you to symbolically ring the keys once again, this time to support all the Chinese people who were not as lucky as we were seventeen years ago and who couldn’t successfully finish their own “Tiananmen Velvet Revolution”. Together, let us help all the people in concentration camps in China whom I believe we can still rescue. We can learn from history that in these issues time plays the most important role and to hesitate even a little bit might mean an irretrievable loss of human life."
  • Support Letter from Czech MP

    "It’s a great honour for me to be able to support, even if just symbolically, the very meaningful thing of merit that was accomplished here. But this is just the beginning. Human rights are indivisible and I can’t imagine we would put higher value on business relations then to protecting human rights, dignity and lives when dealing with that regime and having the Olympic Games in China ... I’m urging our government and governments of all EU members to put pressure on China ..."
  • Speech Given by David Kilgour During Rally in Prague

    "Very briefly I’d like to say to you that David Matas and I studied this terrible problem of organ harvesting and we’ve concluded that thousands of Falun Gong practitioners in China have been killed and their organs have been sold for large amounts of money ... If it doesn’t stop this terrible thing that it is doing how can anyone of us anyone of you go to Beijing in 2008 to watch the Olympic Games? What kind of an Olympic spirit is it put on by a government that kills its own people?"
  • Support Letter for Practitioners from the Confederation of Political Prisoners

    According to reports and testimonies in domestic and foreign media, we often learn about the horrible atrocities of the Chinese Communist Party, which persecute followers of Falun Gong spiritual movement since 1999. In 2001 in Sujiatun, Shenyang city, it has allegedly established a concentration camp, where doctors harvest human organs from living bodies of prisoners of conscience and sell them to medical facilities. There are several dozens of such camps in China. We urge you, not to seek solely economic and political goals during your visits to China but to look also at the state of human rights, religious freedom and democracy.
  • Support Letter from Amnesty International in Czech Republic

    "For some time now, Amnesty has been bringing attention to the persecution of followers of the Falun Gong movement in China and has devoted several reports to that issue. In its report, presented to the UN during the election of members for the Human Rights Council, Amnesty stated: “The suppression of Falun Gong spiritual movement intensified after February 2005. Many Falun Gong practitioners are allegedly detained and in serious danger of torture and mal-treatment.” Amnesty is also greatly alarmed by the media campaign of slander by the Chinese regime, which is apt to incite hatred against Falun Gong adherents."
  • Support for Rally against CCP Organ Harvesting from Director of Czech NGO The Civil Institute

    "Dare we say that the Chinese regime changed in those seventeen years? Not at all. It is not an authoritarian regime, that only abuses its political power and does not force other aspects of society under its state control. It is a totalitarian regime, that does not tolerate even the smallest part to be independent of the state control. That is why even an apolitical Falun Gong spiritual movement is heartlessly persecuted, as well as the independent Christians. The Laogai prison camps are fully comparable with the Nazi concentration camps or the Soviet gulags."
  • A letter From a German Lady to the Chinese Ambassador Concerning the Persecution of Falun Gong

    "We, as members of the Berlin Women’s Study Hall, have the objective to develop and form a cross-cultural and interdenominational dialogue with others. Given that, we listened to a speech about Falun Gong. This was provided to us because of its interconnection with Confucianism and Buddhism, and today’s political conflict between Falun Gong and the Chinese regime. The speech evoked in me horror and a deep set disgust about your inhuman and degrading actions against Chinese citizens."
  • Romania: President of Romania Condemns the Communist Regime as “Illegitimate and Criminal”

    Romanian President Traian Basescu condemned the Communist regime as “illegitimate and criminal” in a speech delivered at a special Romanian Parliament session on the 18th of December 2006. “For the Romanian citizens, Communism was a regime imposed by a political group self-entitled as a truth keeper, a totalitarian regime born of violence, and ended through violence", he said. "It violated the law and forced citizens to live in lies and fear.”
  • MEP Raises Questions about Human Rights Lawyer Imprisoned for Speaking out for Falun Gong

    "A court in Beijing recently found lawyer Gao Zhisheng guilty of subversion. Gao is an active human rights attorney. As we can imagine, the Chinese regime sentenced Mr. Gao because he defended Christian members of unofficial churches and practitioners of the Falun Gong spiritual movement. His two lawyers were neither allowed to enter the court nor meet their client. Consequently, they cannot confirm whether Gao pleaded guilty as the regime claimed."
  • Italian MEP Holds Press Conference Highlighting Persecution Against Falun Gong

    On November 22nd 2006, an Italian news agency reported that Mr. Benedetto Della Vedova, member of the Liberal Reformers and Radical Member of European Parliament, held a press conference to expose the lack of basic human rights in China. Former Canadian Secretary of State for Asia and Pacific David Kilgour was invited to the press conference. Recently, Mr. Kilgour has been devoted to raising awareness about the Chinese Communist Party’s forced removal of Falun Gong practitioners’ internal organs.
