-March 2006, upon hearing the allegations of harvesting vital organs from Falun
Gong practitioners alive in massive scale through the ex-wife of a Chinese
surgeon and other informers, Falun Gong practitioners around the world believed
and feared the allegations to be true. This is because they have been reading
reports from China of imprisonment and torture daily over the last seven years
their fellow practitioners. They called for help.
-In April 2006, initiated by Falun Dafa Associations and the Minghui.net
(Clearwisdom.net)4, a Coalition was founded calling for the alliance of the
worlds governments and organizations to joint handedly investigate these
-Shortly after, two high profile Canadians, a human right lawyer and a former
crown prosecutor, accepted the Coalitions invitation to pursuit this matter.
Although their request to visit China was blocked, through inductive reasoning,
with 18 types of evidence carefully analysed, the two gentlemen published the
historical Matas-Kilgour Report in July 2006 which concluded that the
which amount to genocide and a new form of evil on this planet, is regretfully
-The Matas-Kilgour Report has made 17 practical and constructive
recommendations many of which can and should be implemented even before the
allegations are proven true. Recommendation 10 -immediately stopping the
persecution and the imprisonment of Falun Gong practitioners -is of key
importance, as it is the most direct and effective way to prevent, if not stop,
alleged killing. We are committed not only to the investigation, but also to
these constructive recommendations implemented.

worldwide and the persecution in China.
-Since July 2006, increased awareness of the crime has brought stronger and
stronger voice around the world to condemn this persecution of peaceful and
innocent citizens who only aspire to improve themselves by following the
principles of Truth-Benevolence-Forbearance. The world is demanding that the
persecution of Falun Gong practitioners must stop, and it must stop
-Meanwhile, the CIPFG has received strong support from many countries in four
continents. It is the Coalitions plan now that a number of delegations, lead
current and former parliamentarians of the worlds free countries, will go into
China to see to it that the preventive measures recommended by the Matas-
Kilgour Report are implemented.

-It is worth mentioning that since the gruesome crime of live organ harvesting
exposed through the accounts of the three informers5 in March-April, China
quickly announced plans to bring in new laws, effective 1st July, to regulate
organ trade. Some may have invested hope in the regime to clean up its act,
however, the September 27 BBC report Organ sales 'thriving' in China 6 served
wake up call. Others more familiar with the history of the regime did not hold
such hope. On the contrary they are deeply concerned that what has been
up is likely to be the witnesses and evidence.
-We cannot stand by and let the serious crimes depicted by the allegations
-The Australian Delegation to China is being formed, and will be joined by
other delegations with similar aspirations from Europe, Asia, and North

When all Falun Gong prisoners of conscience are released from detention, the
facilities can be open for inspections without worry.

instigating and starting the persecution -Jiang Ze min, Luo Gan, Liu Jing and
Zhou Yong kang.
