The United Nations General Assembly is happening this week. With world leaders inside, victims of persecution in China are appealing outside. These protestors say the Chinese regime has committed severe human rights abuses—human organ harvesting.

[Jonathan Du, Falun Gong Practitioner]
"Mounting evidence indicates that vast numbers of organs have indeed been taken from prisoners killed on demand so that their body parts can be sold at lucrative prices for use in transplant operations."

And this abuse goes even further...

[Jonathan Du, Falun Gong Practitioner]
"But the donors aren't just death row criminals, they are prisoners of conscience and most of them are Falun Gong practitioners."

Falun Gong is a Chinese meditation practice based on the principles of Truthfulness, Compassion and Tolerance. The Chinese Communist Party began cracking down on the practice in 1999, after it gathered widespread popularity.

Falun Gong practitioners are outside the UN all week raising awareness about the issue of organ harvesting, and some of the have harrowing stories to tell.

Liu Yan, originally from Beijing, was arrested nine times for practicing Falun Gong. She recalls being given mysterious blood tests while in labor camps. She thinks they were for testing the compatibility of her organs.

[Liu Yan, Falun Gong Practitioner]
"For a long time, every month they would take my blood, in total they took several bottles. They didn't say the reason, and didn't tell the results of the tests they did. Seven or eight police would come, with hired thugs. They would pin down my arms and take my blood."

Today Falun Gong practitioners delivered materials containing evidence of organ harvesting to the UN. They plan to be here every day for rest of this week.
