The Chinese state-sanctioned forced organ harvesting from prisoners of conscience, including Falun Gong practitioners, became a focus of media attention during the 26th International Congress of The Transplantation Society in Hong Kong last week, something the Chinese government did not expect. The New York Times alone published three reports on the issue.
The seven-week camp was a productive experience for campers, counselors and parents. Participants studied the Falun Dafa books, did the Dafa exercises, and shared their cultivation experiences. One camper recalls what impressed him during the summer: “They're nice to each other and trust each other." A counselor reflects on how he used the principles of Falun Dafa to look within for shortcomings and gained the respect of campers naturally.
The Gothenburg Culture Festival is one of Sweden's premier arts festivals, attracting approximately 700,000 visitors each year to enjoy art and music, crafts and food. Falun Gong practitioners taught the exercises and exposed the persecution of this peaceful practice in China. One woman, who'd learned the first of five exercises, returned the next day to report that her chronic insomnia had disappeared.
Media reporters who attended the press conference were disturbed to learn about China’s state-sanctioned forced organ harvesting. The goal of the car tour will be to raise public awareness about the persecution of Falun Gong in China.
The persecution of Falun Gong in China has now lasted for 17 years. Mr. Yang has spent 16 of those years in forced labor camps or prisons for refusing to give up his faith.
“Falun Gong practitioners are brave and strong and refuse to give up their belief. They deserve my support and my signature,” said one man who signed a petition calling for an end to the persecution.
