Most people don´t know that China keeps up to millions of prisoners of conscience in different camps across China. Earlier estimates have been put at 5-7 million prisoners of conscience although there should be fewer now. In 2013 it seemed like China would improve everything as they closed down their labour camps for prisoners of conscience. In reality it seems like many of the camps were only renamed and we can only guess how many innocent people still remain in these dark places. What is less known is that the Chinese Communist Party(CCP) has operated a huge number of people to death during the last 15 years and most of them were adherents of the spiritual practice Falun Gong. Falun Gong has been illegally persecuted by the regime since 1999.
The Chinese government continues to illegally harvest organs from millions of its innocent prisoners despite saying it had ended the practice two years ago, a decade-long study has alleged.
Experts estimate between 60,000 and 100,000 organs are transplanted annually, and the majority of the hearts, livers and other organs are obtained by executing prisoners of conscience.
In all, approximately 1.5 million transplants have taken place at 712 liver and kidney transplant centres across China since 2000, with over 300,000 of those taking place at unregulated centres.
The report also found many surgeons had simply “lost count” of the quantity of transplants they had been asked to perform on a daily basis, with some having undertaken as many as six liver removals in one day.
The findings were published in an update to the 2009 book ‘Bloody Harvest’ and the 2014 book ‘The Slaughter’.The report was researched and authored by former Canadian secretary of state David Kilgour, human rights lawyer David Matas and journalist Ethan Gutmann to expose widespread medical wrong-doing in the Asian country.
In a statement, Matas said: “We can easily surpass the official Chinese figure just by looking at the two or three biggest hospitals.
“That increased discrepancy leads us to conclude that there has been a far larger slaughter of practitioners of Falun Gong for their organs than we had originally estimated.
“The ultimate conclusion is that the Chinese Communist Party has engaged the state in the mass killings of innocents.”
Falun Gong is a unique form of meditative practice established in 1992 and the Chinese government has fought to eradicate it for decades without success. Falun Gong is based on three main principles of “Truth-Compassion-Tolerance” in daily life. Falun Gong attracted 100 million Chinese people in the 1990s and became hugely popular because of its ability to heal diseases and create better life quality for its practitioners. Today Falun Gong has spread to more than 100 countries across the world and its teachings are available on the Internet for free.
