(Clearwisdom.net) On April 20, 2006, two key witnesses of the Sujiatun Incident, Anne and Peter [pseudo names], made their first public appearance to give testimonies at the McPherson Park in Washington D.C. while President Bush was meeting with Hu Jintao, head of the Chinese Communist Party. During a rally, Peter told the crowd that he initially thought the exposure of the Sujiatun Concentration Camp would stop the atrocities and save the lives of those detained Falun Gong practitioners. To his surprise, the Chinese Communist regime relocated the practitioners detained in the camp and destroyed evidence in order to deceive the international community and media.
Witness Peter publicly testifies to the CCP's atrocities
Peter said: "I believed originally that through exposing this evil crime, it can be stopped, the criminals can be punished, and the detained Falun Dafa practitioners can be released, so that their lives can be saved. This is the most tragic, inhumane crime."
"I am quite upset that the CCP has transferred Falun Dafa practitioners detained in Sujiatun and destroyed the evidence. The CCP has once again deceived the international community and the media, and it has tempted the international community with economic profit, threatening witnesses, agencies and countries that wish to expose the facts about the CCP's harvesting of organs from living Falun Gong practitioners."
Peter said that he had received anonymous calls, including some from his previous colleagues and bosses, wishing that "I would stop revealing what I found, to reduce the shock from big to small, from small to nothing."
Peter said: "Today is the day that Hu is meeting with Bush, and it is the moment when the world's media and the world's people are paying attention to China. I choose to stand up on this day publicly to condemn the CCP's crimes at Sujiatun. I have no regard for my life or death. I want to use my life as evidence to expose the crimes of the CCP's harvesting of organs from living Falun Gong practitioners.
"I know the CCP will not leave me alone since I have reported this truth, but I am still willing to stand up and risk my life in order to expose these persecution facts. At the same time, I want to tell everyone, as I have repeatedly told you, that the crimes at Sujiatun are only the tip of the iceberg in the nationwide persecution. Stealing and selling organs from Falun Gong practitioners and other prisoners is happening in labor camps all over the country.
"I reported the crime at Sujiatun in hopes of providing ideas to help investigate other labor camps and calling on witnesses like Anne to bravely step forward. Step forward! I invite all of you to bravely step forward and testify to the crimes of the CCP.
"Before and after 2000, I selectively contacted some people in China with different career and societal backgrounds to collect information from different angles, which helped me gain new understandings of the Chinese government's statements, actions, and current situation.
"In 2003, when the SARS epidemic was widespread in China, I traveled from Hong Kong, at the south end of the country, to Heilongjiang Province, at the north end, and witnessed the corruption and filth of the CCP system. I contacted many officials in Shenyang City, Liaoning Province. Their ways of deceit, greed, illegal behavior are beyond the imagination and shockingly evil. When I contacted these officials, I realized for the first time that an underground camp existed at Sujiatun. However, it is very difficult to investigate a secret location in such a big city, and to prove its existence. In the past three years, I have used large amounts of man power, material supplies, and financial resources, and have finally found this facility in Sujiatun, where many Falun Dafa practitioners were detained, and their corneas, internal organs, and bone marrow are harvested while they are alive, and then their bodies are cremated. Even their hair is made into wigs, and their skin and body fat is sold. The remainder of their bodies is then cremated to destroy all evidence. Ladies and gentlemen, can you believe that such crimes are still underway in other regions in China?"
Peter said: "In the United States, the waiting period needed to find a matching kidney is two years or longer. We all know that kidneys and other organs are very hard to keep fresh, with a window of only 24-48 hours for a kidney, and even shorter for a heart. However, on the English version of the website of the China International Transplant Network Assistance Center (CITNAC), it is posted that it only takes one week to one month to find a kidney match. Some transplant experts said that there must be a large living organ bank to provide matching organs in such a short time. Meanwhile, it is clearly shown on the Tianjin City Eastern Organ Transplant Center website that transplant procedures have increased in frequency since 2001.
Currently there are many flyers posted on the electricity poles about kidney or other organ transplants, and many advertisements appear on websites from transplant centers in China. China has become a large organ transplant country. The international community has learned that if one needs an organ transplant quickly, one needs to go to China, where such channels exist.
Peter said: "This crime is committed by a network of corporations and participants who steal and sell Falun Gong practitioners' organs. It involves guards in the labor camps, surgeons, nurses, the government officials of the public health system, police officials, central government officials, black market organ traders and overseas organ transplant traders. It is an enormous crime beyond our imaginations."
At the rally, Peter also told the public:
Ms. Anne's ex-husband is a late-stage cancer patient now, and is receiving chemotherapy in a hospital in Canada. He tried to escape from China, did not want to participate in the crime of harvesting Falun Gong practitioners' organs, and wanted to quit. He then was warned and threatened. His wife was stabbed deeply on the left side of her stomach when she tried to protect him. He is an orphan of a CCP martyr. He confessed to his wife, burned five deep marks onto his arm, and told her of his secrets. Anne stepped forward to help pay back her ex-husband's crimes.
Many doctors and staff members involved in the Sujiatun organ transplant operations have testified that the organs are harvested from living Falun Gong practitioners, and these practitioners were alive during the operations of organ removal. They could do so because the CCP's persecution policy on Falun Gong practitioners is that killing is counted as nothing and there is no need to verify identities.
