Switzerland: Swiss MPs and International NGOs Condemn the Barbarity of the CCP's Concentration Camps

On April 3rd 2006, Falun Gong practitioners from countries all over Europe held a rally at the headquarters of the UN Human Rights Committee in Geneva, strongly condemning the crimes of the CCP, who barbarously persecuted Falun Gong practitioners by removing their organs and then burning their bodies to eliminate the evidence. Practitioners called on the UN to make an immediate investigation into the atrocities perpetrated by the CCP. Swiss MPs and delegates from international NGOs attended or forwarded letters expressing their concern for persecuted Falun Gong practitioners and condemning the crimes of the CCP.

An MP from Geneva: "The CCP must immediately stop the persecution of Falun Gong practitioners and stop the killing".

At the rally, Christian Zangg, an MP from Geneva pointed out that the CCP has infringed on human rights to such an extent that it has gone even further than the Nazis who committed crimes in concentration camps in World War II. In its concentration camps, the locked-up people were those who had different opinions from all walks of life or just belonged to those who have different politics and faiths. “Four thousand Falun Gong practitioners have been already persecuted to death in the blood-curding concentration camps and their organs have been removed as well, which has drawn our attention, because actions like this are making us bristle with anger and arousing great public indignation.”

Christian Zangg called on the CCP to immediately stop the persecution of Falun Gong practitioners. He emphasised: “Today's demonstration is to send out a signal to the world telling everybody: Geneva, an international city, is calling on leaders of the CCP Government to stop the killing!”

A Swiss MP: “We can not keep silent in the face of these terrifying incidents happening right now.”

On the same day, many Swiss MPs wrote letters to the organiser of the rally expressing their great concern over the incident of the concentration camps.

In her letter, Madame Maria Roth Bernasconi MP said: “I am condemning any actions infringing on human rights, no matter where they have happened. People’s dignity should be respected in all places. No excuses can be made to exculpate from infringing on basic human rights such as the persecution of Falun Gong practitioners in any philosophy, faith and policies of democratic countries.”

In her letter, Bernasconi also wrote: “I am condemning the existence of the concentration camps which reminded us of the calamities in the past. People have been taking it for granted that concentration camps completely belonged to history. In fact, it is not so. We can not keep silent when these terrifying incidents happening right now.”

In his letter, Mr. Patrice Mugny, the Minister of Culture in Geneva and an MP, said, "Concentration camps are now being set up and used in the persecution of Falun Gong practitioners, which shows a more sinister regime. Freedom and belief and cultivation belongs to basic human rights, we don’t understand the reason why practicing Falun Gong can bring a crisis to the CCP Government and we hope that the CCP leaders can understand this one day.

A researcher from the Ethnography Museum of Geneva: Everybody should play a role as a sentinel in defending human beings.

Madam Erika Deuber-Zieger, a former MP and a researcher from the Ethnography Museum of Geneva pointed out: In 1942 when Mr. Gerhart Riegener (passed away in Geneva in 2001) disclosed to all governments and all international organisations that the Nazis would decimate the Jews of Europe, was it true that everybody was laughing at him during his appeal? Who believed him? Who took any action?
