Falun Gong spokesperson Eric Robinson said, "On July 20, 1999, the CCP initiated a persecution campaign against Falun Gong. The persecution is the most inhuman in human history." He said, "The CCP’s persecution, on the surface, goes all out to cover up, but actually has escalated. Since March, the revelation of the CCP’s atrocities of harvesting organs from living Falun Gong practitioners, shows that the CCP has applied all means possible in the persecution, to an extent of being unbelievable. "

Robinson said, "An independent investigative report co-authored by former Canadian MP and renowned human rights lawyer, concluded that allegations of live organ harvesting are true."

Three New Zealand MPs from different parties made speeches at the rally. They expressed their condemnation of the persecution and support for Falun Gong's human rights. Green Party spokesperson for Foreign Affairs Keith Lock came to express his support before going to attend a conference at the Parliament.

Mr. Lock said that, regarding current organ harvesting from living Falun Gong practitioners, the CCP should allow the international independent investigative organizations to investigate. Every country should organize its own independent investigation team to go to China to investigate and collect evidence."

The National Party MP expressed in his speech that the CCP’s seven-year persecution of Falun Gong is similar to what happened in Nazi Germany.

The United Future Party leader Peter Dunne called on the New Zealand government to take feasible measures to let more people pay attention to the horrible persecution happening in China. He said, "Falun Gong cultivators have been persevering in protest for the freedom of belief and for their dignity. I stand with you, to support your appeal all the way until the end of the persecution. Long Live Freedom!" The Maori Party also sent a letter to Falun Gong practitioners at the rally to express its support.
