Notes for remarks by Hon. David Kilgour
Today, we are not addressing issues of pariah regimes in Burma/Myanmar,
To be clear, my respect for the people of
The Writing on the Wall
Here in Europe, permit me to pay tribute to your Will Hutton, who recently published an excellent book on
because, as the book points out, approximately two thirds of the world's countries are now democratic and China's one party state is increasingly out of sync with its trading partners.
Organ Seizures from Falun Gong Practitioners
The totalitarian governance model still operating in
As the Matas-Kilgour report explains in detail, in 1999 the government of President Jiang Zemin declared a brutal war on Falun Gong practitioners, no doubt because he was afraid of its growing popularity as an exercise-spiritual movement which is deeply rooted in the Qigong, Confucianism, Buddhism and Taoism traditions of the Chinese people. Practitioners are peaceful and non-political, but their core values of "truth, compassion and forbearance" were clearly different from those of Jiang's European-based political philosophy of Marxism-Leninism. Appendix 9 of our revised report deals with the physical persecution of Falun Gong practitioners by the government of
A second key factor leading ultimately to the crime of widespread organ snatching was the 'dog-eat-dog' model of a market economy introduced by Deng Xiaoping after he became paramount leader in the late 1970s, which I've termed "carnivore capitalism'. The national goal became "get rich by any means". When many hospital budgets across China were cut, the temptation for them and medical professionals to profit from the sale of the organs of Falun Gong "enemies of the state" to foreigners and wealthy Chinese nationals fit well with the brutal persecution of the Falun Gong community continuing since mid-summer of 1999.
Here I refer you to the statement of the ex-wife of a Chinese surgeon, which is appendix 18 in our revised report. She was told by him that he was paid the equivalent of hundreds of thousands of US dollars for removing the corneas of about 2000 Falun Gong practitioners between 2001 and October of 2003.
In the five years since the persecution began, Matas and I have found approximately 41,500 transplantations across
Dr. Tom Treasure
This brings me to the article, "The Falun Gong, organ transplantation, the holocaust and ourselves", by Dr Tom Treasure and carried in the current issue of the Journal of the Royal Society of Medicine. Treasure courageously reminds the profession that in the 1930s the first steps on the road to the holocaust were taken with the complicity of doctors. Among his other important points, I cite only three:
> "Organ transplantation has increased in
> "Apparently when arrested, (Falun Gong practitioners) are routinely blood tested. There is no reason to believe that this is for the benefit of the Falun Gong, but the blood group matching is critical to organ donation... the recipients are predominately those traveling internationally for health care; if Matas and Kilgour are correct the organs come from incarcerated members of an innocent (group); the perpetrators are of necessity medical practitioners.'
"What makes (the allegation) credible are the numerical gap between the reported number of transplants compared with what is possible in other countries, the short waiting times and the confidence with which
the operations are offered in the global health market and the routine blood testing of the Falun Gong."
Manfred Nowak of UN
Profil, Nowak made several interesting points:
> He was expecting a substantive response from the government of
> "Due to their lifestyle and social type, Falun Gong adherents are well suited as organ donors. They do not smoke or drink. Most of them are between the ages of twenty to thirty five,"
Our revised report
Our revised report is available at "organharvestinvestigation.net" Our initial one released last July presented 18 types of evidence, which increased to 33 in the revised one. Some of its contents are based on:
> Admissions from representatives from hospitals in 14 provinces across
across the country posing as relatives of customers. We have tapes, transcripts, translations and telephone records of these conversations.
> The systematic blood testing of Falun Gong practitioners in prison, forced labour and detention centres. Medical examinations were not done out of any concern for their health since they were tortured and abused severely; many died under the policy of eradicating Falun Gong in China.
> Numerous Falun Gong prisoners refused to reveal their identities in order to protect family, friends and fellow workers. This population appears to have disappeared and we learned about them from practitioners who did self-identify and were later released.
> Family members and friends have observed the bodies of practitioners formerly held in custody with organs missing. Many were cremated without their families being permitted to see their bodies.
> Waiting for transplants in
> There is no other plausible explanation for the sourcing of so many organs. Public records on executions simply do not support the claim that organ transplants are coming from "convicted criminals".

I invite the participants in this seminar to examine ways you can help to end this terrible practice. Murdering innocent people for their organs is a new form of evil on this planet. Thank you.
