Doctors Against Forced Organ Harvesting (DAFOH) Nominated for Nobel Prize

Doctors Against Forced Organ Harvesting, a network of doctors and surgeons who concern themselves with ending the practice of coercive organ transplantation, was nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize recently, according to a press release by the group and one of the individuals who nominated them.

“DAFOH is pleased to announce that we have been nominated for the 2016 Nobel Peace Prize,” the executive director of the organization, Dr. Torsten Trey, wrote in an email, using the acronym of the nonprofit, which is based in Washington, D.C.

“The nomination, of which we were informed just a few days ago, is a recognition of our efforts to protect ethical standards in medicine and to address a topic about which few have dared to speak,” he said.

Nominations for the prestigious prize may only be made by parliamentarians, professors, jurists, and similar persons.

Those who wish to nominate an organization or individual for the prize must write to the Norwegian Nobel Committee with their nomination and reasoning.

In the case of DAFOH, one of the nominators was UK parliamentarian Dr. Liam Fox, a member of Parliament for North Somerset, and the former secretary of state for defense. Others who nominated the group chose to remain anonymous.

“Dr. Fox thought it was a very, very worthy cause,” a representative for Dr. Fox’s office said in a telephone interview.

In the nominating letter, Fox wrote: “DAFOH remain ever more committed to bringing an end to forced organ harvesting. Their extensive research indicates that unethical organ trade still remains inadequately addressed in China.”

It goes on to note a number of the activities DAFOH has engaged in since it was founded, including: the initiation of a petition to the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights in 2013 that gained 2 million signatures; becoming a base of expertise for the media to draw upon in reporting on organ transplant issues; its regular publications that address transplant abuse in China and around the world, including a comprehensive, quarterly newsletter.

The focus of the efforts of Doctors Against Forced Organ Harvesting, and its expertise, lies in shedding light on what it said is the system of coercive and abusive organ transplantation in China. This system, run by military and civilian hospitals in cooperation with the security apparatus, is believed to have heavily targeted the population of imprisoned practitioners of Falun Gong, a traditional spiritual discipline that has been targeted for elimination by the Communist Party since 1999.

“The effort of DAFOH to raise awareness and stop the forced organ harvesting from prisoners of conscience and Falun Gong practitioners is truly a significant contribution to peace and human rights in the world,” Fox’s nominating letter stated.

“I do hope you will seriously consider DAFOH for the 2016 Nobel Peace Prize.”

Dr. Trey, in his email, emphasized the role that DAFOH has played in furthering awareness of the abuses in China, which eclipse in scale and state-involvement the sorts of abuses found elsewhere.

“Since the news of China’s forced organ harvesting of Falun Gong practitioners and other prisoners of conscience first broke 10 years ago, DAFOH has been at the forefront of exposing these crimes and calling for full compliance with international standards for ethical transplantation,” Trey said.

“Our global membership of medical doctors, nurses, and other professionals in medicine, ethics, and government has reached over 7,000, as the facts of China’s dubious transplantation practices have been revealed.”

New Canadian Prime Minister Expresses Concern for the Persecuted Falun Gong

December 11, 2015 | By Minghui correspondent Ying Zi

(Minghui.org) Justin Trudeau, Primer Minister of Canada who assumed office on November 4, 2015 brought up the persecution of Falun Gong and other human rights issues in China as he met with Chinese leader Xi Jinping during the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) summit in the Philippines last month.

ce4c3d378c92f003f2bcd11939dbf2f8

Justin Trudeau, Prime Minister of Canada, assumed office on November 4.

Judy Sgro, Member of Parliament (MP) in Canada, confirmed this at a rally in front of the Capitol on December 9. “I am pleased that, as a Liberal Member of the Parliament, I bring greetings to you on behalf of Prime Minister Trudeau. I am also sharing with you the fact that, in the recent meeting that Prime Minister Trudeau had with Chinese leaders, the issue of human rights in China, specifically, [the persecution of] Falun Dafa was raised by Prime Minister Trudeau to the Chinese president.”

Judy Sgro, MP, relays the Prime Minister’s support at a Falun Gong rally on December 9, 2015.

The rally was held the day before International Human Rights Day, which is observed on December 10 every year. Falun Gong practitioners and supporters from Toronto, Montreal, and Ottawa attended the event. Six MPs and two former MPs spoke at the gathering. More than 95,000 signatures calling for an end to the suppression in China were presented to the MPs at the event, who will pass them on to the Prime Minister.

The Canadian government was one of the first governments that spoke out against the persecution when it began on July 20, 1999, according to an article published in The Globe and Mail newspaper that same week, on July 26. Prime ministers in Canada have been supportive of Falun Gong practitioners ever since.

Jean Chretien (1993-2003): Seeking the Release of Detained Practitioners

Voice of America reported on October 20, 2001, that Canadian Prime Minister Jean Chretien asked about the human rights situation in China, including the suppression of Falun Gong, as he met with Chinese leaders during the APEC summit in Shanghai on that day.

The Canadian Parliament unanimously passed Resolution M236 on October 24, 2002, initiated by Member of Parliament Scott Reid. The motion requested Prime Minister Chretien to ask China to release all the Falun Gong practitioners persecuted in China who are relatives of Canadian permanent residents or citizens. Twelve of them were released afterward, and among them four emigrated to Canada.

Paul Martin (2003-2006): Speaking Out on the Importance of Human Rights

When former Chinese leader Hu Jintao visited Canada in September 2005, Prime Minister Paul Martin later said he had a thorough discussion with him on human rights and raised the Falun Gong issue. He believed that better governance of a country needs better understanding of human rights.

When Canadian TV Station reporter Roger Smith asked Hu Jintao during a press conference on September 9 about Falun Gong practitioners who displayed photos depicting the persecution and torture, Hu Jintao sidestepped the question. But Martin replied, “Just as I mentioned in my comments, … I did raise the issue of Falun Gong.” He also said, “We believe that both economic development and better governance requires not only openness and transparency, but an understanding of the importance of human rights.”

Stephen Harper (2006-2015): Canada Will Not Be Silent on Human Rights Issues

Prime Minister Stephen Harper has been a strong supporter of Falun Gong. He established the Office of Religious Freedom within the Department of Foreign Affairs and International Trade on February 19, 2013. In his remarks at the press conference marking the official opening of the new office, Harper specified the persecution of Falun Gong in China as one of the concerns of the Canadian government.

After her daughter Chen Yinghua was imprisoned in China in March 2014 for practicing Falun Gong, Calgary resident Huang Jinling contacted Harper’s office before the Prime Minister visited China. Ms. Huang later received a phone call from the Canadian Embassy in China on November 20, 2014, informing her that the Prime Minister had raised the case of her daughter when he met with Chinese officials.

According to Ms. Huang, the staff member also said the Canadian Foreign Minister had provided a list of jailed Falun Gong practitioners to Wang Yi, the Chinese Foreign Minister.

In his speech at the press conference in 2013, Harper spoke out for the many people in China who were detained for their belief, including Falun Gong practitioners. “In the face of these injustices and atrocities, Canada will not be silent.”

The Canadian public has also paid close attention to the atrocities in China. During the federal election in 2005, the persecution of Falun Gong was among the three most discussed topics, according to letters the prime minister’s office received. Nearly one million signatures calling for an end the suppression in China were collected and forwarded to the office at that time.

加拿大新任总理 向中国领导人提出法轮功受迫害问题

【明慧网二零一五年十二月十日】(明慧记者英梓加拿大报道)二零一五年十二月九日,加拿大自由党国会议员朱迪•斯格若(Judy Sgro)在法轮功学员于国会山举行的大型集会上证实,加拿大新任总理特鲁多(Justin Trudeau)在最近举行的G20会议上向中国领导人习近平提出了中国人权问题,尤其提到了法轮功(受迫害)问题。自一九九九年法轮功遭受中共迫害以来,加拿大历任总理均提出法轮功受迫害问题。

斯格若议员在当天的集会上说:“我很高兴作为自由党国会议员代表总理特鲁多,带给你们节日的问候,我也与你分享一个事实:在最近举行的同中国领导人的会议上,特鲁多总理已向中国国家主席提出中国人权问题,尤其提出了法轮功(在中国受迫害)的问题。”

从迫害开始以来,加拿大历届总理,包括克里靖(Jean Chretien)、马田(Paul Martin)、哈珀(Stephen Harper)都曾秉持价值观,公开向中国政府提出法轮功在中国遭受迫害的问题,并呼吁停止迫害。

克里靖:访华期间表达关注

据美国之音二零零一年十月二十日报道,周六上午,在中国上海出席APEC首脑会议的加拿大总理克雷靖与中国领导人会晤期间,对中国的人权状况,特别是中国镇压法轮功的情况表示关注。

二零零二年十月二十四日,国会议员斯考特-瑞德曾提出M236议案,要求加拿大总理克里靖向中国领导人提出释放十三位与加拿大居民和公民有亲属关系的、在中国受迫害的法轮功学员。加拿大国会一致通过了这项动议。在这项议案的帮助下,有四位在中国国内受迫害的(加拿大居民/公民的)亲属来到加拿大,另外八人被释放。

马田:会见胡锦涛时提出法轮功问题

据美联社报导,二零零五年九月胡锦涛访问加拿大期间,加拿大总理马田(Paul Martin)和胡锦涛在九月九日举行了两个小时的会谈。其后举行的新闻发布会上,马田说,他和胡锦涛进行了公开坦率的会谈,谈到了法轮功等人权案例。

九月九日上午,加拿大电视台资深记者罗杰•史密斯在国际众多媒体面前,询问胡锦涛对国会山外展示受到迫害和酷刑折磨的法轮功学员、民运人士和知识份子的诉求有何回应。马田回答说,“就象我在我的评论里提到的那样……我还提到了法轮功问题。”“我们相信经济发展和更好的国家管理都不只是需要开放和透明度,还需要对人权的理解。”

哈珀:面对暴行 加拿大不会沉默

前总理哈珀在任期间多次公开提出法轮功问题。他在二零一四年十一月访华期间,向中国官员提出了加拿大人亲属、法轮功学员被非法关押的案例。据明慧网报导,十一月初,加拿大卡尔加里华人夫妇呼吁哈珀总理在访华期间帮助呼吁释放他们在中国被非法关押的女儿。他们的女儿因修炼法轮功,从三月起,一直被非法关押在中国大陆的监狱。加拿大公民黄金玲说:“十一月二十日,我接到加拿大驻中国一位秘书打来的电话。他告诉我,哈珀总理在中国的时候见到了北京政府(官员),提出了我女儿的事情,加拿大外交部长把那个营救(法轮功学员)的名单交给了中国外交部长王毅。”

二零一三年二月十九日,哈珀总理宣布在外交部成立宗教自由办公室(Office of Religious Freedom),并表示法轮功信仰团体(在中国)遭受的迫害是加拿大政府的关注之一。“面对这些不公及暴行,加拿大不会保持沉默。”哈珀说,加拿大政府持续发声,“没有害怕”。

秉持价值观 加拿大率先谴责迫害

一九九九年七月二十六日,据加拿大《环球邮报》报导,加拿大政府是全球第一个站出来谴责中共迫害法轮功的国家。据Canada Press报导,二零零五年大选时,从总理办公室收到的信件来看,加拿大人最关心的三件事,其中之一就是法轮功在中国遭到的迫害,接近一百万的加拿大民众签名要求政府帮助制止迫害。

二零一五年十二月九日,来自加拿大东部城市多伦多、蒙特利尔和渥太华等城市的部分法轮功学员汇集在首都渥太华国会山前,呼吁制止中共对法轮功的迫害。六位现任国会议员和两位前议员到现场支持。法轮功学员通过国会议员向总理递交了加拿大人呼吁制止迫害的九万五千个签名。
