Here’s one of those awkward moments where you remember that many if not most of the things we buy (and often complain about the steep price of) are produced by people suffering in horrible, inhumane conditions.
"He is a follower of Falun Gong, which most of the world calls a Buddhist-Taoist spiritual movement but the Chinese government considers a dangerous cult. He was sentenced to two and a half years in the Masanjia labor camp.
He reports sleep deprivation, beatings, and other misery in the labor camp. Making Halloween decorations for no pay was actually a reprieve for the inmates. Still, he decided to send a total of six letters, somehow procuring two items that inmates weren’t supposed to have: paper (taken from a re-education workbook) and a pen. He wrote the letter in bed, in the dark, avoiding the gaze of the guard who watched everyone while they slept. You know, to make sure they weren’t doing anything subversive like sending letters to the West in the products they were packaging.”
In 1992, a peaceful form of Buddhism known as Falun Gong started in Mainland China, It promoted meditation and short exercises to achieve physical and mental enlightenment. Reportedly, it gained 100,000,000 adherents, many of whom claiming that the practice of the exercise relieved them of modern day stress and ailments. In An example of the exercises > http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q7OqbStTcu8&feature=related
In 1999 the CCP was worried that this “Religious practice” would not let China and the Chinese people advance in the modern world if they did the simple exercises everyday. The practice became illegal. More than 100,000,000 people faced persecution, and originally 12,000,000 were arrested. The practice was labelled as a cult even though it had no tendencies to any form of the word. For example, one could be Christian/Atheist/Buddhist and practice Falun Gong.
According to Amnesty, the Chinese government has admitted to the current imprisonment of 250,000 Falun Gong practitioners. Since the persecution began, 1,160 individuals have escaped China and reported torture used in the Chinese prisons. The most common forms of torture used are force-feeding, bamboo spikes being hammered into the nails, sleep deprivation, electric batons, water torture. Reportedly the UN knows of about 3,400 adherents that have died as a result of the tortures, these are only the cases they know about.
When I was in Hong Kong, I learnt about Falun Gong, as I recently started practising Buddhism a few years before that, I took up the practice, unfortunately I saw people protesting, which huge burns across their faces, and the look in their eyes. This is why this post is important to me.
Probably the most disturbing fact of all is that the WHO estimates that 10,000 organs used in transplants and research(Outside of CCP) have come from organ harvesting of Falun Gong practitioners. Click here to sign the petition for governments to investigate in further detail the organ harvesting claims.
As modern humanity, no matter what path of life we are from, we must all agree that the torture and persecution of so many people is a disgrace, here is a petition to show disgust over the genocide and persecution to the UK prime minister, and world governments
The Torture and Killing must stop, peace to you all.
