November 20, 2015 | By a Falun Gong practitioner in Europe
(Minghui.org) “I want to sign!” These words were heard repeatedly from people from around the world visiting Weil am Rhein, a city seated in the border triangle between Germany, France and Switzerland. The occasion was a November 14 signature drive organized by Falun Gong practitioners to call for an end to the brutal state-sanctioned forced organ harvesting of persecuted Falun Gong practitioners and to support practitioners’ lawsuits against former Chinese leader Jiang Zemin for his leading role in the persecution of Falun Gong.
From the end of May through November 2015, more than 196,000 Falun Gong practitioners and their families have filed criminal complaints against Jiang. These lawsuits are finding strong support worldwide. More than 770,000 signatures have been collected between July and the end of October in Asian countries to support the lawsuits and people in America and Europe have also joined the effort to bring Jiang to justice.
A passerby signs a petition to show his support for ending the persecution of Falun Gong
Many people in Weil am Rhein were sadden by the brutality of the persecution.
Mr. Sommer told a Falun Gong practitioner that he was no stranger to the Communist Party’s way of doing things because his uncle’s family lived in East Germany before the fall of Berlin Wall. But he had never heard of the Chinese Communist Party’s harvesting organs from living people. “It’s unacceptable to anyone!” he said.
“Live organ harvesting has been taking place under a regime for more than a decade; what’s the difference between this regime and the Nazis?” Mr. Sommer wondered. “If a person complies with such a crime, this person for sure does not have a moral baseline. If a government condones this, it is terrible. I can only say that they are accomplices!”
Another passer-by, Ms. Schreiber said that it’s a matter of urgency to stop such demonic acts by posting the petitions on social media and translating them into multiple languages so that people from around the world will be able to sign them quickly.
A large number of people signed the petition on November 14 and agreed that the organ harvesting must be exposed and immediately stopped. They also said that they would continue to pay attention to the progress of the lawsuits against Jiang.
