German and Chinese Falun Gong practitioners protested against organ harvesting in China on November 10th and 11th, 2006. For two consecutive days, they told the people of Bremen about the shocking practice that was made public six months ago: The Chinese Communist Regime's trade in organs harvested from living Falun Gong practitioners.
The existence of “live organ banks” in the penal camps throughout China was confirmed by an independent report published by attorney and former Canadian Secretary of State David Kilgour and Canadian human rights attorney David Matas. The report was released on July 6th, 2006 in Canada. This report details comprehensive state sanctioned murder of Falun Gong practitioners, who were arrested and detained only because of their belief. Enquiries into the matter showed that the origins of the organs for more the 41,000 organ transplants that were performed in China since 2001, are not available and couldn’t possible have come from executed prisoners.
It is widely known that in China, organs are removed from executed prisoners without permission from the prisoner or family members. The report confirms that China harvests organs, not only from prisoners fated to die, but also from living Falun Gong practitioners. This is done totally in secret, is systematically planned and is done on a grand scale.
Given this latest and most horrific form of evil, we held the two-day protests. The intent was to alert Bremen’s citizens and the media to these crimes. The locals were encouraged sign a petition that asked for an immediate end to the persecution.

A lady from Bremen said on impulse, “I had viewed China’s government as a regime that violates human rights for a long time, but I didn’t know about this. To conduct trade with someone like this shows distorted thinking.”
The next day, practitioners protested in the northern parts of Bremen in Vegesack. A newspaper published news of the protest in the local section. The title of the article was “Highlighting brutal organ harvesting".
As another goal of the protest we also asked people to support us in our quest for an investigation team to have unrestricted access and the ability to conduct an open investigation in China. Such a Coalition to Investigate the Persecution of Falun Gong in China (CIPFG) has been formed and already has hundreds of members, including doctors, lawyers, VIPs, Parliament members, senators and reporters. At this time, efforts are underway for the establishment of a smaller sized investigation team, with people from Europe, Asia, Australia and North America. This team will visit China and carefully inspect slave labour camps, prisons, hospitals and similar detentions arrangements.
