(Clearwisdom.net) After the horrifying discovery of organ harvesting from living Falun Gong practitioners and the immediate cremation of their bodies to destroy the evidence was exposed on March 4, 2006, the Falun Dafa Association and the Minghui/Clearwisdom websites founded the "Coalition to Investigate the Persecution of Falun Gong in China" (CIPFG; also called "Coalition to Investigate the Persecution"). The CIPFG is collecting information from those willing to come forward, asking people who know the truth to further expose the crimes concerning illegal organ harvesting in China. We call on all kind-hearted people of conscience to lend help in exposing the facts of this vicious persecution of Falun Gong practitioners inside secret concentration camps, forced labor camps, prisons and hospitals in Mainland China. The sooner this atrocity is fully exposed, the sooner this brutal persecution will end. Below is information that came to light recently.
Investigation Lead: Evidence of Hospitals Performing Organ Transplants in Shanghai
The following is information about organ transplants (mostly kidney transplants) that was collected from the hospitals' official websites.
Shanghai Changzheng Hospital

By 2003, when the kidney transplant section was renamed as the organ transplant center, Changzheng Hospital had performed over 2500 kidney transplants. In recent years, it performed about 200 transplants annually (http://www.shczyy.com/depart.aspx?id=36).

Investigation Lead: Evidence of Live Organ Harvesting at the Friendship Hospital of Dalian City in Liaoning Province
Report on the Commerce and Economic Special Section in the Dalian Evening News on September 25, 2006 (see the photo below).
According to the Chronicle of Organ Transplanting Events at the Friendship Hospital of Dalian, the Friendship Hospital performed its first kidney transplant in November 1997, but the kidney was not from a living person. The hospital performed the first kidney transplant from a live person in Liaoning Province in December 2000. Since then, its live kidney transplant activities have kept increasing. On February 1, 2002, it completed one liver transplant and four kidney transplants within fourteen hours. And in 2003, the Dalian City Kidney Transplant Center was established.
It is noteworthy that the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) started persecuting Falun Gong on July 20, 1999. The Friendship Hospital performed its first kidney transplant in November 1997, before the persecution began. The hospital did not use kidneys from living people. The first live case was in December 2000, after the persecution of Falun Gong started. Since then, the continuously increasing number of kidney transplants at the Friendship Hospital of Dalian also matches the reports about the CCP's organ harvesting from living Falun Gong practitioners.
Investigation Lead: Jilin Province Cardiology Hospital Receives Heart from Dunhua City in Jilin Province
Jilin Province Cardiology Hospital performed a heart transplant in February, 2006. A patient's family member said that the patient went to the Jilin University Number One Hospital due to a heart problem on February 5, 2006, but his condition did not improve after twenty days of treatment. Therefore, his family members requested a heart transplant for him. He then went to the Jilin Province Cardiology Hospital.
The patient waited eighteen days before the hospital told him that they found a matching source from a male over forty. Two days before the transplant, the hospital canceled the operation, as one test did not produce matching results. After another twenty days, the hospital said they found a match from a young man who was twenty years old.
The operation started at 1:00 p.m. Armed police brought the heart to the hospital in police cars. The patient's family member said it was from Dunhua City in Jilin Province. The hospital said that they invited a surgeon from Fujian Province to perform the operation and that the doctor flew back after the operation. Other medical staff were all from the Jilin Province Cardiology Hospital.
The Jilin Province Cardiology Hospital is a private hospital. One of the professors performing the transplant operations is retired professor Liu from Jilin University Number One Hospital. The Jilin University Number One Hospital performed seven or eight kidney transplants daily from July through September 2006. The operations were done in the basement and there were more than twenty hospital beds in the basement. It was said that the transplant surgeons were mainly from Jilin University Number Three Hospital and that one doctor also did a liver transplant. The hospital has done one to two kidney transplants daily in October, 2006.

Investigation Lead: Dafa Practitioner Mr. Jiang Yiyun's Abdomen Opened After Being Murdered -- We Suspect that Internal Organs Were Removed
The Minghui.org website (the Chinese version of Clearwisdom.net) has reported the case in which Falun Gong practitioner Mr. Jiang Yiyun from Taiping Town in Jiangyou City in Sichuan Province was beaten to death and his body was thrown away by the police (http://www.minghui.org/mh/articles/2005/6/3/103236.html). According to witnesses, when his body was discovered, his stomach was open. A relative took a picture, however, his son destroyed the negative, afraid of revenge by the State Security Bureau. Police from the State Security Bureau cremated Mr. Jiang's body the same morning it was found. They also went to his home to pressure his family members not to say anything.
From the exposure of the CCP's organ harvesting from living Falun Gong practitioners, Mr. Jiang Yiyun's internal organs were very likely removed by the police. We hope any one who knows about this case will come forward and provide us detailed information.
Investigation Lead: Dongwan City People's Hospital in Guangdong Province Performs Organ Transplant Operations
An employee at the Dongwan City People's Hospital in Guangdong Province was asked, "Does your hospital perform organ transplant operations?" She answered, "Of course we do!" "Where do you get the organs? I mean who is willing to sell you the organs that cannot be reproduced by their body again?" She answered, "How would I know! Don't ask this kind of question!" Dongwan City was previously a county-level city (smaller than normal) and was promoted to a normal city ten years ago. Such a small place is even able to perform organ transplant operations. Therefore, it is not hard to imagine what can be done in the mega cities such as Guangzhou in Guangdong Province.
