David Kilgour: “Violence and Corruprion are the system today in China; Every 10 years or so the party starts a persecution of a minority, mainly I think to instill fear in the general population.”
‘The Great Leap Forward’ where an estimated 40 million people starved to death.
‘The Cultural Revolution” another 2 million killed.
‘The Tianneman Square massacre where soldiers killed thousands of people seeking openness and democracy.
This brings us to the ongoing persecution of Falun Gong which began in 1999 and continues to this day.
Hundreds of thousands of innocent people have been put into slave labor camps across China.
They’re tortured, blood-tested and the unlucky ones are killed on demand for their organs –
Harvested for profit.
David Matas: “We found out that ALL Falun Gong detainees were systematically blood tested and organ examined.”
Organs from Falun Gong Practitioners are in high demand as they’re well known to be healthy because of the Falun Gong exercises.
This was NOT for their wellbeing as they were being tortured to recant their faith.
International pressure has forced China to make placating statements.
China says that “All is Good” but the records are not open for verification.
They say they are in a transition stage, but International standards expect China to explain where it gets its organs from, mere words are worthless.
