PETITION TO THE HOUSE OF COMMONS IN PARLIAMENT ASSEMBLED

We, the undersigned residents of Canada, draw the attention of the House of Commons to the following:

Whereas, Falun Gong practitioners have been the largest and most severely persecuted group in China since July 1999 for their spiritual belief in "Truth-Compassion-Forbearance", and in 2006, allegations emerged of large scale murder of Falun Gong practitioners for their organs;

Whereas, Canadian lawyers David Matas and David Kilgour have compiled more than 50 pieces of evidence and concluded the regime and its agencies in numerous parts of China have put to death a large number of Falun Gong prisoners of conscience. Their vital organs were seized involuntarily for sale at high prices;

Whereas, The Doctors Against Forced Organ Harvesting (DAFOH) has got about 1.5 million petition signatures from over 50 countries and presented to United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights in November 2013;

Whereas, On December 12, 2013, the European Parliament adopted an urgent resolution which asked for an end to the forced organ harvesting in China;

Whereas, On December 12, 2013, the European Parliament adopted an urgent resolution which asked for an end to the forced organ harvesting in China;

Whereas, Democratic nations have a responsibility to condemn such atrocities, wherever they occur;

Therefore we, the undersigned request the Canadian government to:

A) Condemn the Chinese Communist Party's crime of systematically murdering Falun Gong practitioners for their organs.

B) Publicly call for an end to the persecution of Falun Gong in China.
