The following statement by David Marshall, Member of Parliament for Glasgow East, was read at a press conference opposite the Chinese Embassy in London on Saturday April 28th 2007. The press conference was the start of a day of activities to commemorate April 25th 1999 when Falun Gong practitioners in China appealed to the government to release fellow practitioners who were wrongfully imprisoned. This appeal was used by members of the Chinese Communist Party as an excuse to publicly launch the persecution against Falun Gong, which had previously been happening clandestinely.
As you know, I do share your concerns about human rights violations in China and in particular the persecution of Falun Gong practitioners.
I wish you every success with your campaign and I do hope that the upcoming news conference raises much needed awareness against these abuses, especially organ harvesting.
David Marshall MP
