World Summit on
Combating and Preventing Forced Organ Harvesting

Silence and self-censorship by the media regarding forced organ harvesting crimes

AMSTELVEEN – China Alarm invites you to the ‘World Summit on Combating and Preventing Forced Organ Harvesting’ (1), which is being organized by five international, non-governmental organizations, including the doctors’ organization DAFOH. They are committed to combating and preventing forced organ harvesting as well as promoting medical ethics and fundamental human rights (2). Named organizations
have been alarmed by independent investigations carried out by, among others, the China Tribunal (3), experts and rapporteurs from the United Nations. UN rapporteurs reported in mid-June that they are “extremely alarmed” about the reports received (4). The organizers of the world summit want to stop forced removal of organs from living prisoners of conscience, Falun Gong practitioners, Uyghurs, Tibetans, Muslims and Christians in China. They also announced the launch of a declaration on September 26.

The summit will bring together 35 experts in medicine, law, government and media from 19 countries to expose the truth about transplant crimes and discuss how the global community can stop them. The first session was followed by 60,000 people worldwide. The topic of Friday, September 24, is of particular interest to the media. Session four is about the relationship between the media and organ harvesting (5).

Forced organ harvesting is an unethical, illegal but highly profitable practice in which vital organs are stolen from healthy, young and innocent people without consent. The organs are sold to patients who need a transplant.

For more than two decades, the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) has been mobilizing the entire Chinese state apparatus to monetize the bodies of unwanted Chinese citizens, believers and dissidents. This turns medical specialists into executioners. The main victims of this crime are prisoners of conscience who practice Falun Gong (6). They are killed on order for their organs.

The World Summit on Forced Organ Harvesting is a series of six webinars that show how organ harvesting affects all aspects of society. The Hippocratic Oath, to do no harm, was sacrificed for profit, career and political goals. News media have often failed to report regularly and truthfully about this atrocity, have yielded to pressure from the CCP and have published paid propaganda. Societies worldwide are kept in ignorance of the dangers of becoming complicit. The legal profession is called upon to put an end to this intolerable crime against humanity.

The fourth session today examines how journalists deal with press freedom, censorship and suppression of information. The failure of the mainstream media to report on forced organ harvesting in China is negatively affecting the dissemination of information and knowledge to the public and the credibility of research into this extremely serious violation of human rights. During the first webinar, it was revealed that only 5 to 10 percent of all citizens are aware of this mass murder.
