(Clearwisdom.net) On Saturday, July 15, 2006, Falun Gong practitioners in Hong Kong held a rally and march to protest the Chinese Communist Party's (CCP) atrocities of harvesting organs from living Falun Gong practitioners. They called on all circles across the world to support investigation teams to enter China and help stop the CCP's brutal, nearly seven-year-long persecution.

More than four hundred practitioners in Hong Kong and other areas held a rally in Chater Garden in the morning. They first commemorated the fellow practitioners tortured to death in China, with one minute of silence. Some practitioners held wreaths. The atmosphere was solemn. A reenactment of some of the CCP’s torture methods was also set up on-site.

Mr. Kan Hung-cheung, spokesperson for the Hong Kong Falun Dafa Association, read out a statement. He pointed out that the persecution seemed not so brutal from the point of view of general society, but was more grim and bloody in labor camps and prisons, especially with the live organ removal recently exposed. Two Canadian VIPs conducted an independent investigation and confirmed the CCP’s harvesting of organs from living Falun Gong practitioners. The report further demonstrates that the persecution is extremely brutal and inhuman.

The statement reads, "There is no language in this world that can describe the evilness of the CCP’s brutalities. One of the investigators pointed out that this evil is unprecedented on this planet. The persecution against Falun Gong is a crime against humanity.

"The Canadian independent investigation team’s report further confirms the existence of the CCP’s practice of organ removal from living Falun Gong practitioners and exposed the extreme evilness and brutality of the CCP’s persecution. The situation of organ removal from living people tests each person’s moral baseline. Falun Gong practitioners call on all people and international circles to offer assistance to support investigation teams to enter China and conduct thorough, and independent investigations in labor camps, prisons and detention centers. The investigation will yield evidence of the persecution and lead to a complete stop to the CCP’s unlawful imprisonment of Falun Gong practitioners in labor camps, prisons and related facilities. The seven-year-long brutal persecution must be stopped and those criminals not willing to repent will be brought to justice."

Practitioners request the release of family members unlawfully imprisoned in China

Five family members of practitioners unlawfully imprisoned in China read a joint statement and demanded the CCP to immediately stop the persecution and imprisonment of Falun Gong practitioners and to release all practitioners being illegally detained. Chen Muhan arrived in Hong Kong from Australia and called for the rescue of her mother, practitioner Zeng Aihua, who has Hong Kong residency. Ms. Zeng Aihua was abducted by Shanghai police in late May and is imprisoned in Pudong Detention Center. The regime does not allow her to meet with family members or with an attorney.

Hong Kong Falun Gong practitioner Zhu Keming, who was secretly sentenced to five years' imprisonment for suing Jiang Zemin and Luo Gan for their illegal persecution of Falun Gong, also read a statement from the World Organization to Investigate the Persecution of Falun Gong (WOIPFG) on investigation of the CCP’s organ harvesting from living practitioners. He called on the international community to initiate special criminal investigation procedures into the CCP’s crimes against humanity and genocide. He also called on each country, organization and individual of conscience to take action to help stop the CCP’s crime of inhuman brutal genocide.

The rally ended a little past noon. Several hundred people then lined up and marched towards China’s Liaison Office. There was occasional rain with strong winds. The practitioners continued marching with banners and flags. Some distributed information exposing the CCP’s live organ removal along the march route. Many residents stopped to watch and accept the truth-clarification materials. At the conclusion of the march, the practitioners read a statement at the front entrance of the China Liaison Office.
