    It is unbelievable and horrific that in this day and age such atrocities are happening in China.

    With the completion of the annual Slovakian nationwide summer tour to introduce Falun Dafa and expose the persecution of the practice in China, I have returned to my home with sunburn.

  • Germany: Prisoners as Living Organ Bank

    The Chinese government is accused of abominable crimes. It is accused of harvesting organs from imprisoned Falun Gong practitioners. This results in the death of these people. Beijing is denying this. But, independent experts have found proof of the allegation ... It is very rare to discover dead bodies that show clear-cut organ removal. But it is not unheard of.

Months later their dead bodies were found. The police said in their report that the cause of death was “Suicide.”

Beside the operation table was a “Chinese policeman” waving a police baton.
  • Testimony by Falun Gong Practitioner Living in Norway: How I Was Persecuted and Tortured in China

    The Chinese Communist Regime has been persecuting Falun Gong for seven years. In these seven years, I was illegally sentenced to a three-year term in a labour-reform camp, then another two-year term in a labor-reeducation camp. During the five years I was imprisoned: I was mercilessly tortured by the evil communist party and suffered from a total loss of vision in my left eye, and upper and lower tooth migration and dislocation. Today, I will reveal to the international community how the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) used the government to mercilessly torture and persecute me.
