Falun Gong Accuses China of Running Death Camp

Falun Gong Accuses China of Running Death Camp

Express deepest grievance and concern regarding the suffering of Falun Gong practitioners held in Sujiatun death camp, China.

On 6th April New Zealand Falun Gong practitioners will gather at Parliament to express our deepest grievance and concern regarding the suffering of Falun Gong practitioners held in Sujiatun death camp, China.

On March 8, 2006, a Chinese journalist on the run from the Chinese communist regime disclosed to Falun Gong practitioners in the United States an appalling news: a secret death camp in Sujiatun, China has stockpiled 6,000 thousand Falun Gong practitioners, who are being killed for their organs, while they are still alive. The organs then were sold in China's lucrative organ trade. The organs are removed at an adjacent hospital, the Liaoning Provincial Thrombosis Hospital of Integrated Chinese and Western Medicine.

One week after the journalist's disclosure, a former nurse whose ex-husband had taken part in harvesting organs from Falun Gong practitioners also stepped forward to testify:

She said her ex-husband had taken part in removing corneas from Falun Gong practitioners from early 2001. Those who were taken in on the operating tables were anesthetized. Elderly people or children were mostly used for harvesting corneas. She learned this fact in 2003. This brought disaster to their family and resulted in the failure of their marriage. She said after Falun Gong practitioners' organs were cut out, some of these people were thrown directly into the crematorium to be burnt, thus leaving no evidence.

On 31st March 2006, a military doctor from Shen Yang city, China, disclosed to the Epoch Times: there is a concentration camp in Jilin, coded as 672-S, there are 120 thousand Falun Gong practitioners detained there. He said Sujiatun death camp is just one of the 36 similar camps around China ... ...

"Never again," the phrase that came as a result of the Holocaust, is still resounding in our ears. However we are sad to see that it is happening again. Facing the genocide and slaughter, silence is the shame of the whole civilized world. And as Albert Einstein said, silence is guilty of complicity.

This is an atrocity that the entire civilized world has been trying to avoid all the time. When this happened again, can we pose ourselves and continue our normal business talk with the government, under whose governance the killing is happening! It is absolutely wrong to eye on money and business trading but ignore the atrocity behind the scene.

On 4th April 2006, New Zealand Falun Gong practitioners filed a lawsuit against Bo Xilai, currently the Minister of Commerce for China, who will sit as a state guest in New Zealand Parliament on 6th April 2006. Bo Xilai is the former governor of Liaoning province, which has the largest number of Falun Gong practitioners detained in China. It was no surprise that the death camp was located in Liaoning province. We believe that as governor, Bo Xilai would have had to know and approve what was going on.

As a New Zealander, we wish New Zealand have multiple business partners. However as a decent New Zealander, we could not dinner on other people's blood and sacrifice.

Here we are strongly urging the New Zealand government to act on the reports of the secret death camp and urge the Chinese Premier Minister Wen Jiabao to accept international independent investigation on the charge of death camps.

All the decent New Zealanders, we wish you join us, support us and help those kind Falun Gong practitioners who are being killed in Sujiatun and other death camp in China!
