Asian spiritualists have used Geelong’s waterfront to protest against the Chinese Government harvesting their practitioners’ organs.
The Falun Gong protest was part of 100-city SOS car tour across Australia.
Speaker Yuan An said officials force-fed and blood-tested her in 2004 after she was summarily jailed in China for handing out Falun Gong flyers.
The first publicity of harvesting in 2006 left her believing the officials wanted to steal her organs.
“There were hidden secrets of unconscionable evil,” she said.
Doctor Lucy Zhao, president of a body representing Falun Gong practitioners, hoped the tour would raise awareness about the movement’s 17 years of persecution.
“We realise that most Australians know little about Falun Gong and the tragic situation in China,” Dr Zhao said.
“We hope that the car tour will help fellow-Australians know more about what is going on in China today.”
Fellow practitioner Lucy Liu encouraged Geelong residents to contact their local MPs to support a private members’ bill this month condemning the alleged harvesting.
The protesters alleged organs were taken from hundreds of thousands of Falun Gong practitioners in China.
Harvesting claims received worldwide media attention when independent investigators reported that “non-consenting prisoners of conscience” were the primary source of “unethical organ procurement”.
The investigators suggested the government had killed and forcibly removed the organs of a millions of prisoners, with Falun Gong practitioners the main target.
The first time analysis examined transplantation volumes, bed utilisation, surgical rates, personnel and state funding in more than 700 Chinese hospitals.
