The following statement of support was read on February 3rd at a press conference outside the Chinese Embassy in London. The statement was by a consultant psychiatrist in Ireland. The press conference was held to announce the establishment of the European branch of the Coalition to Investigate the Persecution of Falun Gong (CIPFG-Europe). To find out more about the event, please see http://en.clearharmony.net/articles/200702/37890.html.
To all attendees at the press conference:
The establishment of the European branch of CIPFG is another milestone in the pursuit of truth about the persecution of Falun Gong throughout China.
Since its commencement, this persecution against the peaceful participants of the practice of Falun Gong has escalated in terms of its cruelty, barbarism and relentless abuse of men and women who espouse the values of Truthfulness, Compassion and Forbearance. We have heard of labour camps, torture and murder of practitioners, we have heard of enforced psychiatric confinement without justification, now we hear of organ extraction from live practitioners and are left to wonder about the residual depths to which the Chinese Communist Party can sink.
The spotlight of the world needs to be trained on these evil practices where the darkness of perverted science has virtually extinguished all hope. The investigations which the CIPFG will call for, have the capacity to reveal the extent of the excesses of the human rights abuses to which thousands of Chinese are subjected every day.
As a medical doctor I cannot feel kinship with my colleagues in China whilst these abuses are being perpetrated by other medics who abuse science, turning healing into an instrument of torture. We all have a collective responsibility to ask the Chinese Communist Party to end these practices against Falun Gong and admit responsibility for past sufferings.
