  • China Claimed to Be a "Global Center for Organ Transplant"
    article states that China has become the Global Center for Organ Transplant On December 17 2005 4 days after liver transplant surgery a Korean patient told a reporter that in Korea it is very difficult to obtain an organ for transplant However by the end of 2004 the Oriental Organ Transplant Center had performed 1500 liver transplants around 800 kidney transplants as well as numerous cornea transplants In the year 2004 alone the Center has performed around 900 liver and kidney transplants By December 16 2005 597 cases of liver transplants alone had been performed there However by December 30 the number had risen to 650 indicating that 53 cases were performed in two weeks Family members of patients revealed that as many as 24 liver and kidney transplants were performed in one day The article mentioned that a family member of a Korean patient told the reporter The most important thing is that there is no such abundant source of livers in Korea In Korea patients can only have a partial liver transplant while in mainland China they can get a complete liver transplant What s more the quality of organs are said to be excellent The organs are immediately available but the source of donors is questionable According to the above referenced article a family member of a Korean patient said that it is not hard to wait for an organ transplant in Tianjin the waiting period after a regular physical checkup is only about one week At the 4th floor cafeteria of Tianjin 1 General Hospital some family members of patients often get together to exchange information They have heard that most donors are between twenty and thirty years old but the exact identity of these donors are not traceable An anonymous doctor in the Hospital revealed to the reporter that the majority of donors are prisoners who have death sentences The donors cause of death are all acute brain injuries on registration forms of organ donors that the Hospital provides to patients after they are discharged Shen Zhongyang of the Oriental Organ Transplant Center neither confirmed nor denied this when asked by the reporter The article states that the extensive medical practice and theoretical research of liver transplant in mainland China has not appeared in any top international medical journals The reason for this is thought to be that the authors of these research papers in mainland China cannot identify the donors of organs being transplanted In traditional Chinese culture a corpse needs to be kept whole Even after execution of criminals where organs may have been damaged the body parts have to be buried together How many people die of acute brain injury in mainland China annually How many family members of executed prisoners are willing to donate or sell the organs In mainland China even with a person s consent to donate organs after death family members will oppose this strongly and thus they are not likely to keep the promise after death Where

  • CIPFG Statement Regarding the Chinese Communist Party's Statement About Falun Gong and the 2008 Beijing Olympics
    one sided wish 2 Li Zhanjun s response demonstrates that the CCP regime s policy of persecuting Falun Gong and its practitioners is still ongoing The CCP has overtly extended the regime s persecution of Falun Gong onto the Olympics a movement of the highest and most noble spirit in human society Such actions of outright abuse and international brutality are not only a trampling of the Olympic Spirit but also a challenge to fundamental morality and ethics in international society Having called upon the world not to politicize the Olympics this is clear evidence that the CCP itself is doing so 3 As the highest executive branch of the Olympics the International Olympic Committee s IOC mission explicitly states The IOC s role is to act against any form of discrimination affecting the Olympic Movement Thereby we call upon the IOC to face up to and stop Beijing s severe breach of the Olympic Charter re consider the eligibility of the CCP regime for its ever worsening human rights situation in China today and discuss the possibility of holding the Olympics in another nation 4 We call upon the international community and athletes from around the world to condemn the CCP s trampling on the Olympic spirit call upon the Chinese regime to respect freedom of belief and call upon the regime to halt the persecution of Falun Gong and all other Chinese citizens We also call upon the global community to begin discussions on whether or not to participate in the CCP s Genocide Olympics so as to not repeat the 1936 Nazi Olympics tragedy 5 The Global Human Rights Torch Relay launched by the CIPFG aims to expose the CCP s crimes promoting peace freedom justice and the Olympic spirit It has traversed across 18 countries in Europe since its inception on August 9 in Athens Greece Currently in Australia it has received support from hundreds of politicians and Olympic athletes from around the world as Human Rights Torch Relay Ambassadors To date tens of thousands of people have participated in the relay events We invite everyone from around the world who values peace freedom justice and the Olympic Spirit to step forward and participate in the Human Rights Torch Relay and let the light of freedom illuminate every dark corner of the world The Olympics and crimes against humanity cannot coexist in China Coalition to Investigation the Persecution of Falun Gong CIPFG Nov 16 2007 Email to a friend Related news International Forum Human Rights in China and the 2008 Olympics Feb 08 2008 2008 Millions of Signatures Petition Jan 08 2008 CIPFG s condemned CCP Arrest of Atterney Gao Zhisheng Sep 24 2007 CIPFG s Events on the Global Human Rights Torch Relay Aug 13 2007 CIPFG Greece to Light the Torch of Human Rights Relay Jul 04 2007 301 VIPs Joined the Coalition to Investigate the Persecution of Falun Gong CIPFG in China Feb 25 2007 CIPFG ASIA Calls For Thorough Investigation of Live
