(Clearwisdom.net) On the evening of May 6, 2006, Falun Gong practitioners held a candlelight vigil in Chungcheng Park in Chiayi, Taiwan. They commemorated Falun Gong practitioners who have died as a result of persecution in Mainland China, and exposed the Chinese Communist Party (CCP)'s atrocities of harvesting organs from living Falun Gong practitioners and selling the organs for profit before cremating the murdered bodies to destroy the evidence in the CCP's forced labor camps and concentration camps.

When it was dark, on the long wooden bench in front of an outdoor stage, candles were lit up, and the serious and harmonious music gradually stopped. The event host, Professor Ai Chang-Rui from Chungcheng University said slowly, "Standing here, I'm in deep grief. I'm reminded of Falun Gong practitioners who are suffering in Mainland China. I believe everyone shares the same feeling."

On the outdoor stage there were photos of Falun Gong practitioners who have died as a result of the persecution, with a row of candlelight illumination in front of them. Two huge lotus flower lamps stood on both sides of their photos. The site was solemn and gracious. Two songs, entitled, "Sit By My Side" and, "Please Sit With Me" recorded by the Tianyin (Sound of Heaven) Chorus reverberated in the tranquil night sky. Sad, slow melodious notes also led people walking in the park to understand the sorrowful atmosphere of the commemoration.

Reenactment exposing the CCP's organ harvest from living practitioners

A group of students from Chungcheng University who are Falun Gong practitioners performed a reenactment of appalling scenes of police in the mainland arresting Falun Gong practitioners, and doctors removing their organs while they are still alive before their murdered bodies are cremated to destroy the evidence.

City councilor Fu Da-Wei, Tsai Wen-Hsu, Tsai Yung-Chuan, and physician Chen Ling-Yu from Tzu Chi Hospital came from their busy work to attend the vigil and expressed their concerns. They demanded that the CCP immediately release the innocent Falun Gong practitioners. Councilor Tsai Yung-Chuan said that since Falun Gong practitioners have exposed the CCP's atrocities, we cannot wait for the CCP but should voice our concerns for the victims, uphold justice and stop the CCP from continuing doing evil deeds.

Councilor Tsai Wen-Hsu watched the reenactment and was very surprised. He said angrily, "It's impossible for this to exist in the civilized world, but it has happened in the mainland under the rule of the CCP." He called on people to work together to condemn the CCP's inhuman atrocities and urgently rescue countless Falun Gong practitioners whose lives are at stake.

Physician Chen Ling-Yu emphasized that doctors should have a sense of morality. She said, "I hope people would not go to the mainland for organ transplants, unwittingly becoming accomplices of the CCP." Dr. Chen expressed her support for going to the mainland to conduct an investigation over the incident of organ harvesting from living people. She also admired the courage of "Annie," wife of the doctor who used to work in Sujiatun Concentration Camp in Shenyang City, for being able to step forward to expose the CCP's mass killing of people.

On a large screen, practitioners aired the recorded speech by witness Annie in an interview by the Sound of Hope International Radio Station, "Exposing the Covert Organ-removal Practice in the Sujiatun Concentration Camp." They also showed the persecution of practitioner Ms. Gao Rongrong from the mainland, whose face was disfigured after being shocked for hours by police officers with electric batons. People attending the vigil quietly sat and watched, while holding candles in their hands, deep in grief.

Many people walking in the park were moved. One person pointed at the photos displayed on the handrail and said, "Look, practicing qigong in the mainland would cause on to be arrested." A practitioner from Budai Town said that his whole family practices Falun Gong; they are healthy, and their family life is very harmonious. The CCP should not suppress such a group of good people who cultivate "Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance."

The vigil ended after the mourning statement was read. All Falun Gong practitioners and other participants, holding candles, walked on the stage slowly and placed the candles in front of the photos of deceased Falun Gong practitioners, to express their sincere mourning.
