Location: First Amendment Lounge

Time: Monday, July 15, 1:00-4:00pm

“Forced organ harvesting has been committed for years throughout China on a significant scale,” concluded the independent China Tribunal last month. Unlike black market operations, this on-demand killing of prisoners of conscience for their organs is driven by the state and carried out by both military and civilian institutions. This press conference and panel brings together experts and leaders of international human rights communities to present the latest findings based on over a decade of research. Presenters will discuss its scale, nature, organ sources, and victims, as well as explore strategic measures being implemented around the world to counter this human rights disaster.
