Vancouver Resident: “People Must Take Action to Stop the Persecution”
(Minghui.org) “From the bottom of my soul, I support you forever!” A lady said while pressed her hands in front of her chest and bowed to the Falun Gong practitioners demonstrating a reenactment of forced organ harvest currently happening in China.
The August 1st signature drive and protest in Vancouver caught the attention of many people, both locals and tourists from around the world.
Learning about the brutal persecution and state-sanctioned organ harvesting from prisoners of conscience in China, the majority of whom are Falun Gong practitioners, people signed post cards addressed to the Prime Minister of Canada, asking him to raise concern about human rights violations during his state visit to China in August.
Dr. Alexander Mandelbaum, a nephrologist and surgeon of the Medical Clinic at Heidelberg University Germany, said that the academy of organ transplantation should ban Chinese organ transplant surgeons from speaking at international conferences.
Dr. Mandelbaum signed and added comment on the post card, “Ban the Chinese organ transplant surgeons to join international organ transplantation societies.”
He said that it was not just up to governments to stop organ harvesting atrocities. International organ transplant organizations also share a responsibility. They should ban Chinese surgeons from attending their annual conferences and refuse accept research based on illicit organ harvesting practices.
He said it is a scandal that many organ transplant societies continue to accept such research papers from China.
Dr. Mandelbaum said the Medical Clinic of Heidelberg University no longer accepts patients who obtained illegal organ transplants in other countries.
Ms. Loree Nicholson signed a post card and said it was very terrifying that the Chinese regime forcefully takes and sells organs from Falun Gong practitioners. “It is a persecution of human rights. It is a persecution of human dignity. It must stop. People should care about each other, not persecution.”
Kristin Lanong took some video footage of the demonstration of organ harvesting atrocities. She later bowed to the practitioners portraying the victims of the tortures.
“From the bottom of my soul, I support Falun Gong's efforts to end the persecution. This is why I am so moved seeing this.”
Ms. Lanong always signs petitions to stop the persecution whenever she sees Falun Gong activities. “I will continue to sign the petitions until the persecution stops,” she added.
She said she took some photos of the event and would post them online to let more people become aware of the persecution.
She also emphasized that Prime Minister Trudeau must ask the Chinese regime to stop the persecution of Falun Gong.
The persecution “is inhuman. I am happy to see Falun Gong protesting here to let more people know the truth. People should voice their opposition and organ harvesting should never be tolerated anywhere.”
