Falun Dafa Association of Washington DC provided this letter to The Epoch Times on October 16:
To the 2012 Presidential Candidates Messrs. Obama and Romney:
While the United States and much of the world are preoccupied with economic problems, there is another urgent matter that must be addressed as soon as possible. Systematic forced live organ harvesting of thousands of innocent people in China has been referred to as “a new form of evil on this planet.”
It is comparable to the crimes of the Nazi regime, which are well documented and remembered with the words “never again.” Yet when a comparable crime is being committed now, the world’s governments are in denial or are ignoring it.
We deeply regret to see that neither presidential candidate of this great nation has taken a stance on these atrocities.
The United States, as a free nation, rose to preeminence in world affairs after World War II. After the collapse of the Soviet Union empire, the United States became the only superpower and assumed responsibility as the leader of nations.
Yet, if the U.S. champions freedom, human rights, and the rule of law, why does it not now lead the world in putting an end to such a huge crime against humanity when it is right before us? Is it because the U.S. is afraid of backlash from a rising China for meddling in its internal affairs?
Actually, there’s no need to fear such a regime that will lose all credibility once the crime of the theft of organs and murdering the ‘donors’ is revealed to the Chinese people. But we cannot idly standby and wait for the communist regime to collapse while tens of thousands of good people are being systematically imprisoned, tortured, and murdered across China everyday.
The U.S. has the moral obligation to stand up to China to protect, not only the people of China for universal human rights, but also the people of the U.S. and the rest of the world from a dangerous regime, which has demonstrated in the past decades that it is a world menace that cannot be reformed. The Chinese Communist Party (CCP) deceives the world, manipulates the global economy, while disdaining global protocols and international law.
If the U.S. does not stand up to China, no other nation can. The President of the United States has a special responsibility in this, which should not be shirked.
The atrocities of organ harvesting for big profit from vast number of healthy and imprisoned innocent people in China are coming to greater light. When the atrocities committed by the CCP are fully revealed, the regime will come to an end. Then what will the people say about the U.S. if it did nothing to put an end to the atrocities when the truth was known?
Relevant information has since been available in studies, witness accounts, U.S. congressional hearings and media reports. Two salient books have been published, Bloody Harvest (2007) and State Organs (2012), which provide hard evidence beyond reasonable doubt that these atrocities occurred and are still ongoing. Those subject to forced organ harvesting are primarily Falun Gong practitioners. The victims also include Uyghurs, Tibetans, and House Christians.
The mainstream media has not understood and reported well about the orchestration of live organ harvesting on a vast scale. Because the media doesn’t grasp the moral degeneration of the CCP, it cannot see the coming collapse of the CCP.
Eight years ago, at the Fairmont hotel in Washington, D.C., Bo Xilai, the then Minister of Commerce, was served with a civil lawsuit on the afternoon of April 22, 2004, by Falun Gong practitioners on charges of “torture, genocide and crimes against humanity.”
Now Bo Xilai awaits his criminal trial in China. Although the two incidents are eight years apart, they have close connections.
Wang Lijun, former police chief of Chongqing and one of Bo’s subordinates, fled to the American Consulate in Chengdu in Feb. 6, and likely disclosed information implicating his boss Bo. Since his tenure as governor of Liaoning Province, Bo was very much involved in the persecution of Falun Gong practitioners and political dissidents.
The most noteworthy information that Bo fears is being exposed about his approval of forced organ harvesting from living prisoners. He is concerned about evidence that he and his cronies profited from organ harvesting and use of executed prisoners’ bodies in worldwide plastination exhibits.
On Oct. 4, a ‘Dear Colleague’ letter was co-signed by 106 Congress Members, urging the State Department to make public any information regarding forced live organ harvesting of Falun Gong practitioners in China and in any of the secret materials Wang Lijun may have handed over.
The U.S.-China relations are not just about trade and economics. More importantly, it is the relationship between the American people and the Chinese people, as the latter live under the boot and mind control of the CCP
The CCP has created a more dystopian and hellish world in China than the one imagined in Orwell’s 1984. The U.S. should not be concerned about a worse and more dangerous regime taking power. China’s culture taught people morality and virtue, which the CCP has been trying to destroy. China has prospered for 5,000 years under such a culture without the CCP, and China will flourish again.
Recently, our friends have personally handed letters to each of you informing you about this urgent matter of organ harvesting. Please give it and this letter serious consideration.
The role America plays in putting an end to the atrocities may very well determine the nation’s position in the future global community. May future generations benefit and prosper from the right choices you make today.
