Marko, a local resident, carefully read the posters and took pictures of them. He said he was angered by the large-scale organ harvesting crimes in China and was surprised by the silence on the topic from Western media.

Upon hearing about the CCP’s atrocities against practitioners, Päivi was saddened by the severity of the persecution. She signed the petition and said she hopes practitioners will get many more signatures.
