Practitioner Ms. Shi said in her speech that learning of the CCP's removal of organs from living Falun Gong practitioners for profit helps people recognize the CCP's evil nature. Ms. Shi said, "CCP doctors have previously harvested organs from living death-row inmates. Later they began taking organs from living Falun Gong practitioners. This is the reason for the large increase in organ transplantation numbers in China after the persecution of Falun Gong started. It is the result of the CCP applying the mandate: 'Ruin [practitioners'] reputations, bankrupt [practitioners] financially, and destroy [practitioners] physically.'"
Ms. Terri, a member of Friends of Falun Gong, said in her speech that the Falun Gong practitioners she has met are peaceful and kind people. The CCP persecutes such good people. She feels that it is inconceivable that the CCP harvests organs from living Falun Gong practitioners for profit.
A reporter from TV station CBS 42 covered the event. A Falun Gong practitioner handed a copy of Falun Gong Today and a flyer exposing the CCP's live organ removal atrocity to the reporter and clarified the facts of the persecution.
The CBS evening news covered the event that same day and showed the rally, including a banner worded "Spread the Nine Commentaries , Support 23 Million People Quitting the CCP," and posters exposing the CCP's brutal killing and torture of the Chinese people. The news report stated that it was the tenth anniversary of the sovereignty transfer of Hong Kong to China, and many protest activities occurred across the world that day. The report said that in Birmingham, a group of people gathered in the park, whose purpose was to have more people know of the CCP's evil nature and cruel torture of the Chinese people.
The CBS report referred to Dr. Yang from Alabama Agricultural and Mechanical University who explained that 23 million Chinese people had quit the CCP because they recognized the CCP's lies and its evil nature. The report stated at the end that the purpose of the protest was to stop the CCP's killing of innocent people and harvesting organs from living people for profit.
