UK Falun Gong Association Statement on the Sujiatun Concentration camp

The following statement was read by Peter Jauhal, chairman of the UK Falun Gong Association, on Monday 13th March at a press conference opposite the London Chinese Embassy. The press conference was held to expose the recent emergence of information on a death camp in Sujiatun where Falun Gong practitioners' internal organs are harvested for sale on the black market. For more information on Sujiatun, please see http://en.clearharmony.net/articles/200603/31867.html.


Since the Nuremberg Trials came to a close in 1946, condemning the Nazi officials who were responsible for the holocaust, it has been the common hope of the people in the world that concentration camps like Auschwitz, Buchenwald and Dachau, would never again emerge in the history of mankind. The horrifying fact is that a similar facility is at this very moment in operation in China.

We have received shocking, detailed information on Wednesday from a Chinese Communist Party insider documenting a concentration camp set up in Shenyang city, Liaoning province, expressly for Falun Gong practitioners.

The camp is said to hold over 6,000 Falun Gong adherents at any given time, and 'nobody has yet to come out' from it alive. According to the source, it contains a crematorium, and an unusually large number of doctors work there, reflecting the camp’s practice of killing prisoners for their organs, which are then sold for profit. Falun Gong practitioners are killed for their organs, which are sent off to various medical facilities. Organ sales are now a highly profitable business in China.

Located in the Sujiatun district of Shenyang city, the camp, dubbed the Sujiatun Concentration Camp, is surrounded by walls three metres high topped with electrified barbed wire. It is heavily fortified and said to be highly secret; locals know close to nothing about it. Those held inside are Falun Gong adherents from China's three northeastern provinces as well as central China; many are said to have been transferred there from various labour camps.

This is deeply, terribly disturbing, and confirms our worst fears: that CCP authorities remain intent on “eradicating” Falun Gong and in their desperation will go to any lengths. We need to be clear that the persecution has not gone away—it has merely become darker and more hidden. If Falun Dafa practitioners are sent to Sujiatun they have no chance of coming out ... The CCP won’t let a prisoner consume food forever. So what are they up to, then? The Falun Dafa practitioners are killed for their organs, which are sent off to various medical facilities. Organ sales are now a highly profitable business in China. They can't find enough bodies through executions, and no bodies are more readily available for this business than those of the[Falun Dafa practitioners.

Word of concentration camps for Falun Gong practitioners has circulated for several years. An October 1st 2000 report by Agence France Presse told of two concentration camps having been recently built, both specifically for Falun Gong detainees. The camps were said to have been built in northwest and northeast China, and been capable of each holding up to 50,000 persons. An October 6th 2000 report on Minghui.net stated that a concentration camp, expressly for the Falun Gong, had been built in the remote northwestern province of Xinjiang. Chinese sources report seeing Falun Gong adherents shipped off on trains to the Xinjiang camp.

Little to no information on the secretive camp has emerged. No one to date is known to have come back from the camp. International media and governments around the world must pay attention to this and take active measures to investigate the concentration camp and put a stop to this barbarity and madness. We are calling for all possible support from international organisations. There must be accountability in China. If this is the price people are paying for our silence, it is chillingly tragic.
