St. Thomas Times-Journal: Falun Gong pleads for Canada's aid (Excerpts)
(Clearwisdom.net) Since March, the atrocities of harvesting organs from living Falun Gong practitioners and cremating their bodies to destroy the evidence under the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) regime have been exposed. Falun Gong practitioners around the world have been to local city governments to clarify the facts to government officials about the atrocities. In April, Falun Gong practitioners in Ontario, Canada went to all cities in the province to clarify the facts, in hopes that the democratic country will help investigate the atrocities of the CCP's forced labor camps.
According to an article published in Ontario's St. Thomas Times-Journal on April 27, 2006, Tuesday, Falun Gong practitioners brought their appeal to St. Thomas. They hoped to get the federal government to investigate allegations of torture and human rights abuses. The same day, five practitioners went to St. Thomas city hall.
They claim Falun Gong members [are] persecuted and thrown into Chinese death camps, their organs are harvested and sold for profit.
Because Falun Gong members are in death camps and their organs taken from them, it reduces the waiting time for an organ transplant in China, suggested Arek Rusek, a spokesman for the group.
Rusek said that over the past week, the practitioners have taken their presentation to cities all over Ontario, hoping to muster support.
On April 3, Falun Gong practitioners went to Ottawa to meet with senior federal officials, hoping to spark action.
