Live Forum: China’s Practice of Organ Harvesting & Mass Murder – How Should Canada Respond?
Wednesday, October 29, 2014, Noon-1pm
Calgary – Downtown Central Library, John Dutton Theatre (2nd floor)
616 Macleod Trail SE, Calgary, AB
Chinese authorities have killed tens of thousands of unwilling donors to harvest their organs and sell them to unwitting transplant tourists for up to US$160,000. Forced organ harvesting has thus become a key issue of concern for medical, legal, and humanitarian organizations worldwide. People globally are now faced with the moral dilemma of waiting years for a transplant in their own country or obtaining an organ from China that may have come from unwilling individuals.
Join 2 of the people most responsible for documenting proof of these atrocities in Calgary on October 29: Author Ethan Gutmann and Canada’s former Secretary of State for Asia-Pacific, David Kilgour.
An award-winning China analyst and human rights investigator, his new book The Slaughter investigates China’s secret program to eliminate dissidents — Falun Gong, Tibetans, and Uyghurs — while profiting from the sale of their organs. Based on interviews with top-ranking police officials and doctors who have killed prisoners on the operating table, Gutmann has produced an insider’s account that critics have characterized as “gripping, horrifying, infuriating, and utterly compelling.”
Ethan is a contributor to top media publications such as the Wall Street Journal Asia and Investor’s Business Daily, he has provided briefings to the U.S. Congress, the CIA, the EU, the U.N., and parliaments across the world.
A former MP from Edmonton and Secretary of State for Asia-Pacific, and prominent international human rights advocate for decades. He co-authoredBloody Harvest – the Killing of Falun Gong for Their Organs with David Matas. Both were awarded the 2009 Human Rights Prize of the International Society for Human Rights in Switzerland and co-nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize in 2010 for their volunteer work to end forced organ harvesting in China. http://david-kilgour.com/, http://
