Last week on my commute home from work, I passed a group of protesters on a corner in a heavily populated Chinese area. One particularly large sign read China is harvesting organs illegally from Falun Gong practitioners. I thought immediately skeptically that while China is not an honest state, this hyperbole from a persecuted group was meant to call attention to their unjust oppression. But it was still hyperbole. After seeing a documentary today, I'm willing to state that I believe my initial impression was wrong. Drastically wrong.
A Canadian documentary entitled Human Harvest investigated China's state sanctioned (or run) illegal human organ trade, which is believed to be supplied by Falun Gong political prisoners. I wish I could share this whole documentary with readers, but I cannot find it online. It's truly frightening that the communist regime, in fear of any organization that is not them, is actively pursuing anything it deems as a threat to its hegemony. It's, as the video says, state run murder. It's inhuman. It's genocide.
If you can find the documentary, watch it. Share it. Turning a blind eye to it is unconscionable. Falun Gong is an ancient Chinese spiritualism that pursues Truth, Compassion and Tolerance. That's not a crime, expect apparently it is in China.
UPDATE: I found a link where yo can watch it. HERE. Warning it has some graphic parts. There's a link to petition the U.N. to do something about it. It wouldn't hurt to see the U.N. do something useful from time to time.
