Hundreds of people showed thier support for a new campaign initiated by the NGO 'Coalition to Investigate the Persecution of Falun Gong (CIPFG). The event, entitled “Millions of Signatures”, was held at the National Palace of Culture on April 19th, 2008. Similar events will be held every week in the capital Sofia and in other cities until August, when the Summer Olympic Games are scheduled to kick off in Beijing.
The goal of the campaign is to gather one million signatures all over the world. These signatures will be handed to the International Olympic Committee. The Chinese government will be urged to stop immediately the killings of innocent Falun Gong practitioners in China. On April 7th, the total of signatures gathered all over the world are 205 462, with Bulgaria adding 329 signatures.
In 2006, two members of the CIPFG – David Kilgour (former Canadian secretary of State for Asia and Pacific) and the international human rights lawyer David Matas published a report which confirmed the claims of illegal organ harvesting from Falun Gong practitioners in China.
