Italy: Exposing the CCP's Crimes to Delegates of the International Conference on Liver Transplant Technology
(Clearwisdom.net) From May 4 to 6, 2006, an international liver transplant technology exchange meeting was held in Milan, Italy. The participants were famous surgeons and professors from countries all over the world. Practitioners revealed to the participants the Chinese Communist Party's savage act of stealing and selling Falun Gong practitioners' organs.
After getting approval from the police without problem, on May 6, practitioners went to Milan's Marriot hotel where the meeting would be held to set up display boards at the gate and distribute handouts to pedestrians and participants at the conference. A practitioner obtained the agreement of hotel personnel and stood at the main entrance of hotel to distribute handouts to every guest going in and out. Inside the hotel, a lot of people were reading the handouts. Some people did not take the leaflets while entering the door, yet after they saw a lot of people were reading the leaflets, they went out to ask for a copy from the practitioners.
A professor from Canada requested the handouts from Falun Gong practitioners. He said he would be going to a hospital in Tianjin next month and would read the handouts conscientiously. A lady participating in the meeting took several copies of handouts and said she would show them to her colleagues.
Many participants took photos of the display boards after requesting consent from the practitioners. Two medical professors of surgery coming from Egypt's Cairo University told practitioners that they had patients who went to China for organ transplant operations, which were very cheap. They said they did not know about this thing in the past, which should be known to more people and exposed worldwide. Patients should not go to China for organ transplants, and Chinese doctors should be forbidden to participate in international academic conferences. They also invited practitioners to meet the executive chairman of the meeting.
The doctor mentioned that he shared the view of the scholars participating in the conference, which is that organ transplants should be agreed upon by the donor in advance and should follow accepted medical moral standards. Otherwise it is unacceptable. He also said that although he did not know about Falun Gong practitioners' organs being stolen, he knew about China's taking organs from people on death row. Taking organs without the owner's consent is an act of stealing, which is unacceptable in any case. Unfortunately, the international media has not paid enough attention to the issue. Everybody needs to make joint efforts.
Outside the hotel, residents of Milan passing by were shocked too. A woman with tears in her eyes said after seeing the handout, "I have a liver problem and need to have a transplant badly. However if I know someone would lose their life because of me, then I could not really live. I would rather give up this opportunity. The Communist Party is too bad. My family was once persecuted by the Communist Party in eastern Europe."
Another lady said after seeing the display boards, "I felt suffocated from shock. It is really unimaginable that such a thing could be happening at the present time. How can people just sit and watch?"
The participants came in and out in an endless stream. Almost all the people accepted the handouts, causing a shortage of materials. Fortunately, there was a copy shop nearby so that people with predestined connections had a chance to learn the truth.
