Abstract: Falun Gong practitioners in underground concentration camps, including Sujiatun Camp, have been secretly relocated and are subject to slaughter at any time. Meanwhile some hospitals in China have suddenly increased the number of transplant operations.
Since 2001, concentration camps similar to the one in Sujiatun have been set up in multiple provinces to detain large numbers of Falun Gong practitioners. In those camps, the authorities perform organ harvesting from live practitioners for sale and then cremate the remains to destroy the evidence. The atrocities were exposed to the international community in the beginning of March. Within three weeks, the underground concentration camp in Sujiatun was quickly relocated. Meanwhile, some hospitals and transplant centers in China are rushing to perform a large number of transplant operations: A slaughter to destroy witnesses/victims of the concentration camps is happening, and we urgently call upon the international community to initiate rescue programs to stop this new genocide.
To Whom This May Concern:
According to tips from Mainland China and investigations, the Chinese Communist regime hastily published the "Interim Regulation for Human Organ Transplant Practice" after the Sujiatun Concentration Camp was exposed. However, the regulation will not take effect until July 1, 2006, and thus we suspect the regime was allowing time to destroy all evidence of the crimes. All investigation has confirmed that hospitals and transplant centers in Heilongjiang, Hunan, Shanghai, Zhejiang, Yunnan, Anhui, Shan'xi and Xinjiang are operating overtime to perform transplant operations. Hospital staff members told undercover investigators that patients should come in quickly if he or she wants transplants as they can find matching organs in as short as one or two days and it will be difficult after this batch of organs are used up.
According to investigations by non-governmental organizations, the regime has set up concentration camps similar to the one in Sujiatun all over the country. The camps are suspected to specialize in detaining and secretly killing people who are steadfast in their belief in Falun Gong. The camps harvest organs from live Falun Gong practitioners for transplant. The sudden recent increase of organ supply in China is not an individual situation, but is widespread throughout the country. The Chinese Communist regime is suspected to destroy the bodily remains after organ harvesting to wipe out the evidence. We thus believe that the slaughter of Falun Gong practitioners detained in the camps is taking place at an unusually high rate!
After World War II, the international community deeply regretted that it failed to stop the holocaust and made a solemn "Never Again" promise. Sixty years later, history now gives the civilized world an opportunity to correct its past mistake. We hope that this generation can proudly say: We not only made a promise, but we kept our promise. We urgently request the U.S. government, the United Nations and governments of other countries as well as pertinent international organizations to take immediate action and activate all possible mechanisms to stop this new genocide in Mainland China. Every minute of delay will result in irremediable loss of innocent lives and will be a disgrace to the human race!
The Coalition to Investigate the Persecution of Falun Gong in China (CIPFG)

Note: The Coalition to Investigate the Persecution of Falun Gong in China (CIPFG) is a civil group originated by the Falun Dafa Association and Clearwisdom website after the underground concentration camp in Sujiatun was exposed. The organization was formally established on April 4, 2006. Its mission is to form an "Coalition" with all related international organizations, state agencies and media in requesting to go to China to conduct an independent, direct, interference-free investigation to collect evidence, and completely search for the truth of the persecution of Falun Gong, including the Sujiatun Concentration Camp and other secret concentration camps located elsewhere to end this 7-year brutal persecution.
