A common sight around the Chinatown district of Sydney are Falun Gong practitioners claiming that the Chinese government are using Falun Gong, as well as other prisoners of conscience including underground Christians, Tibetans and Uighers, for organ harvesting.
Four Falun Gong practitioners passed through Blayney on a whistlestop tour recently to spread the word across regional NSW.
Practitioners in China say that the communist regime has treated Falun Gong as a threat to their ideology and began a campaign to eradicate the practice in July 1999.
Falun Gong investigations into organ harvesting in China have found that since 2000, there have been between 60,000 to 100,000 transplants, while China reports only 10,000.
Organiser of the tour Sophie Zheng said that the aim of the national car tours in Australia is to expose what they say is the most inhumane crime on the face of the planet.
“We want to urge our Federal government to pass a resolution that calls on the Chinese government to stop persecuting Falun Gong practitioners and stop organ harvesting from prisoners of conscience,” she said.
