Since publication in 2012, the book State Organs: Transplant Abuse in China, has been translated and published internationally, receiving positive feedback from medical and legal professionals, experts in various fields of business, and politicians. The book was co-edited by David Matas, Nobel Peace Prize Nominee and Canadian human rights lawyer, and Dr. Trey, Executive Director of Doctors Against Forced Organ Harvesting (DAFOH). Many people, while initially incredulous over these startling reports, are now facing the reality of China’s state-sanctioned organ harvesting of living prisoners of conscience. Forums and hearings intended to expose and end the government’s crimes have been held in many places, including the U.S. Congress and the European Parliament. Chinese citizens behind the iron curtain have risked their lives to sign a petition calling for action to stop these crimes. However, the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) continues to practice live organ harvesting.
An echo after the publication of State Organs revealed another aspect. It became obvious that the root beneath the forced organ harvesting as a profitable transplant market was a genocide the Chinese government committed against its own citizens—Falun Gong practitioners. In China they are reported to be the largest victim group used for sourcing of organs and to be the primary target of illegal forced organ harvesting precisely for the reason that they are highly vulnerable, persecuted, marginalized and ostracized. Discussions on an international level have made it clear: as long as the Falun Gong are the target of widespread persecution they will remain the primary source, and the crimes of live organ harvesting will continue.
Seeing a need to look into the root cause in order to stop the forced organ harvesting, Dr. Trey invited human rights activist and attorney, Ms. Chu, Esq., to join him in co-editing a new book that exposes and discusses the persecution of the Falun Gong in China and how it has played a vital role in the CCP’s organ harvesting crimes. Together they solicited analysis from renowned scholars, politicians, lawyers, physicians, artists and human rights activists who are long-time observers of China and the CCP’s crimes against humanity. The massive campaign to vilify and annihilate the peaceful, popular Falun Gong and the coinciding skyrocketing success of China’s transplant business was initiated under former Chinese Party Chief Jiang Zemin in July 1999. The book describes the global scope and impact from political, sociological, economical, medical, legal, journalistic, and cultural perspectives.
The objective analysis by 19 co-authors from Europe, North America, Australia and Asia offers the reader an opportunity to learn that the genocide of Falun Gong is not merely a campaign against 100 million practitioners who seek to cultivate themselves. This persecution has severely damaged the conscience and goodwill of human beings all over the world, and by trying to implicate every one of us in this unprecedented evil, has expanded into a threat against the very goodness inherent in humankind. If left unchecked, the extent of its impact is beyond our imagination.
The title, An Unprecedented Evil Persecution, is an apt description of these atrocious crimes against humanity. The book is a solemn call to awaken our conscience. We must all do what we can to preserve the best of our humanity and end this human rights catastrophe that is unprecedented in its scale.
