Organ Harvesting in China

One of the most diabolical aspects of the persecution of Falun Gong in China is the targeting of  Falun Gong practitioners for their organs.  In the U.S. or Canada, it usually takes one to three years to obtain an organ transplant.  Under the Communist regime in China, it takes only one to three weeks.  Read Bloody Harvest by international human rights experts David Kilgour, Esq., and David Matas, Esq., an independent report that details evidence that Falun Gong practitioners are being murdered for the organs in Mainland military facilities.

Suppression in Russia

For years, the Chinese Communist Party, through pressure and economic enticements, has influenced the Russian government to suppress Falun Gong. Practitioners have been harassed, arrested, interrogated,  and refugees, even with United Nations refugee status, have been deported. Most recently, Zhuan Falun, the main spiritual text of the Falun Gong spiritual path, has been banned in Russia. Throughout history, the worst forms of spiritual persecution have begun with the banning of books.  For more information about the suppression of Falun Gong in Russia, please click here.  Please also see our petition.

Falun Gong, also known as Falun Dafa, is a spiritual practice that consists of study to improve character and five gentle exercises, including a meditation. Three values, Truthfulness, Compassion, and Forbearance, form the core of Falun Gong’s philosophy. The discipline was made public in May of 1992 by its founder, Mr. Li Hongzhi. Today, Falun Gong is practiced in over 110 countries. If you wish to learn more about the practice, please visit: http://falundafa.org
