NUEVA YORK-Que acababan de llegar a los Estados Unidos hace un poco más de una semana, pero que estaban listos para decirle al mundo acerca de lo que soportaron.

Por delante de la Asamblea General de las Naciones Unidas en Nueva York, dos hermanas de China se unió a un grupo de unos 80 meditando manifestantes fuera del U.N. edificio. Rui y Xing son practicantes de Falun Dafa, una práctica espiritual que el régimen chino en gran medida ha perseguido desde 1999. Se les pide que usen seudónimos por miedo a las repercusiones de sus padres que viven en China, que también practicar Falun Dafa (también conocido como Falun Gong).

Rui Xing y eran simplemente 11 y 8 años de edad cuando su padre fue detenido y condenado a prisión por 14 un año y medio de su fe en la antigua disciplina budista. Al sentirse amenazado por la creciente popularidad de Falun Dafa en China alcance 100 millones de practicantes en su pico, según fuentes Falun Gong, o 70 millones de acuerdo con una encuesta realizada por el Estado, las autoridades comunistas lanzaron una campaña sistemática en 1999 para erradicar la práctica.

Esta vez, la policía también se alistó administradores y profesores de la escuela de Rui a espiarla. 17 y 14 años, fueron dejados a su suerte, con la ayuda de algunos practicantes de Falun Dafa que vivían cerca. Rui Xing y se les dijo que no podían solicitar préstamos de estudiantes universitarios.

“Queremos decirle a los delegados de China para detener la persecución, de manera que los practicantes en China pueden creer libremente. Son personas que conocemos, personas que siguen sufriendo,”Dijo Rui en chino.

NEWS ANALYSIS

As NAFTA negotiations with the United States show slow progress, un new survey shows that more Canadians want to increase trade relationships beyond the United States, with Europe and the U.K.—jurisdictions with similar democratic institutions as Canada—taking the top spots.

China takes the fourth spot as the trade partner of choice, a finding similar to periodic surveys in recent years showing a decline in Canadians’ interest in free trade with China.

The federal government is pushing ahead with free trade talks with China, sin embargo, with a decision on the potential deal with the Asian giant expected this fall, according to The National Post.

The Epoch Times contacted Global Affairs Canada for an update on the Canada-China free trade talks, but answers to questions were not provided by press time. The government’s public consultation phase on the proposed deal closed in June.

As U.S. President Donald Trump plays hardball in NAFTA negotiations, Canada’s pursuit of a free trade deal with China has been cited by some as an attempt to send a signal to its southern neighbour that Canada isn’t limited in choice when it comes to trading partners.

But the Liberal government started negotiations on a potential free trade deal with China immediately after coming to power in the fall of 2015. That was long before Trump, then a Republican presidential candidate, criticized NAFTA’s terms as being overly in Canada’s favour as president of the United States.

The Angus Reid poll published last week asked Canadians where their government should look to develop closer trade ties. Alrededor 45 percent chose the EU, followed closely by the United States at around 40 por ciento. The third spot with 30 percent went to the U.K., which is in the midst of exiting the EU and will be on its own in any trade talks. China, with close to 25 por ciento, came in fourth.

Angus Reid notes that interest among Canadians for developing closer trade ties with China has been in decline since the research company first began its periodic polling on the subject in 2014.

Even among the Liberals’ own support base, i.e. those who voted Liberal in the 2015 federal election, support for a free trade deal is below two in five.

Rule of Law

The Liberals’ “human connection” initiatives and “people-to-people exchanges” between China and Canada over the last few years were cited as being intended to reverse the negative polling trends of Canadians’ views on China, but it seems they haven’t succeeded in making Canadians more receptive to closer trade ties.

Perhaps that’s because it is not the elected representatives of the Chinese people that oversee the affairs of their country, but a single non-elected entity that controls all branches of power, including the judiciary, in a one-party system.

The overt state control in China is something that worries Dean Allison, the Conservatives’ newly appointed international trade critic, should a Canada-China free trade agreement go ahead.

“We certainly don’t mind doing deals with the Chinese people. It’s when you have the state involved in such a large way that gives us some great concerns,", Dijo en una entrevista.

That’s the lesson Amy Chang hopes Canadians wanting to do business in China learn. Chang’s parents, John Chang and Allison Lu, Canadian citizens who own wineries in B.C. and Ontario, are currently being held by Chinese authorities in Shanghai over an alleged customs valuation dispute.

According to Chang, the Chinese authorities have criminalized a commercial dispute in her parents’ case.

“If this is an issue regarding undervaluation, then they can let me know and we can deal with this diplomatically. There’s no need to have Canadian citizens detained overseas and imprisoned,” Chang told The Canadian Press last spring when she visited Ottawa to plead with federal politicians for help in getting her parents released.

"[Beijing] really is a government that doesn’t play by the rules, it isn’t rule-based,” said Allison. "[En China] we have clear violations of the rule of law as it would exist here in Canada.”

That means that when it comes to a free trade deal with China, there is no guarantee of a level playing field, él dijo.

“If you and I are making decisions in Canada based on business and personal interest and how the market economy works, that’s one thing, but we are competing with a systematically organized and controlled state-run operation. I think that skews the level playing field,” Allison said.

TAIPEI—The wife and mother of detained Taiwanese rights activist Lee Ming-che were due to arrive in China on Sunday to attend his subversion trial on Monday, Taiwan’s Mainland Affairs Council said in a statement, calling for Lee’s safe return home.

Lee, a community college teacher and pro-democracy and human rights activist, went missing during a March visit to China. Authorities later confirmed he had been detained, straining already-tense ties between the mainland and the self-ruling island.

Authorities at the Intermediate People’s Court of Yueyang city, in the central province of Hunan, said Monday’s trial on suspicion of subversion of state power would be an open hearing.

Chinese courts have video-streamed or live-blogged increasing numbers of proceedings in recent years as part of a push towards judicial transparency

sin embargo, rights activists say that in sensitive cases, holding “open” hearings is a tool for authorities to demonstrate state power and that usually the defendant has agreed to an outcome.

On Saturday, Lee’s wife, Lee Ching-yu, asked during a news conference that supporters forgive her husband if he says something in court which disappoints them, as he might be required to give testimony against his own free will.

On Sunday she declined to comment to a large media contingent as she checked into her flight at Taipei Songshan Airport, where she was to fly to Changsha, in Hunan province, via Shanghai.

Taiwan’s Mainland Affairs Council said it would do everything in its power to facilitate Lee’s safe return.

“Our government’s approach to this case has been predicated on preserving our country’s dignity while ensuring Lee Ming-che’s safety," decía.

Lee’s case has strained relations between Taipei and Beijing, which have been particularly tense since President Tsai Ing-wen, leader of Taiwan’s independence-leaning Democratic Progressive Party, took office last year.

Beijing regards the island as a breakaway province and it has never renounced the use of force to bring it back under mainland control.

Thousands of students' parents in Guizhou's Anlong County took to the streets on September 5, 2017, after finding rotten meat delivered to the school cafeteria. (Screenshot via RFA)Thousands of students' parents in Guizhou's Anlong County took to the streets on September 5, 2017, after finding rotten meat delivered to the school cafeteria. (Screenshot via RFA)

It would have been another normal Tuesday morning on Sept. 5, as parents of Xifeng No. 2 Primary School pupils sent their kids off to school. At the school gate, the parents were surprised to find a dubious truck loaded with boxes of pork. The meat—partially rotted with some pieces covered with patches of mold or worms—gave off a repulsive stench.

The parents’ amazement turned into outrage when they realized that the meat was not going to the landfill for disposal but to the school kitchen, soon to be fed to their children.

Instead of going to work like they normally did, the furious parents staged a mass street protest. The number soon proliferated to thousands as more indignant locals and parents joined the march. Officials from the local market supervision bureau attempted to seal off and seize the boxes, but were blocked by the parents.

“Word spread quickly from mouth to mouth,” a parent surnamed Li told The Epoch Times. “The government wanted to take the pork boxes away and turn the issue into naught.” Li observed about 2,000 a 3,000 participants on the street.

To show what their children might have been eating, the protesters carried the boxes of pork and paraded on the street. They were confronted by a large but unspecified number of police, and a few protesters were arrested.

“From the No. 1 primary to No. 2 y no. 5, our schools are all on the streets, pretty much walking on any road can take you through the whole town, so you bump into demonstrators wherever you go,"Dijo Li.

The demonstrators marched from school and stopped in front of the local government building. They dispersed after the police chief came to meet them and promised to solve the issue. They might plan for larger-scale protests if the authorities don’t settle it properly, the parents said.

The market supervision bureau staff member who picked up a reporter’s call refused to answer questions, stating that the issue was “under investigation.”

The protest was a culmination of long-building dissatisfaction toward the government-monopolized school canteen. The parents said that Chia Tai Group (also known internationally as Charoen Pokphand or CP Group) that supplied the questionable pork had made a pact with the local government to become the exclusive supplier for the dozens of schools in Anlong County of Guizhou, a mountainous province in southwestern China. It has supplied food to tens of thousands of primary and middle school students who dined in the school cafeterias for over a year.

The incident has not been the first time the CP Group fell under public scrutiny for the quality of the food it supplied. The parents mentioned a small-scale food-poisoning incident last year when a few students fell ill after eating the cafeteria food, and said they dropped the matter for lack of awareness of their rights. They hoped that the government could suspend supplies from CP.

“We hope that the government could give schools the freedom to choose where to purchase their own food materials…wouldn’t it be much fresher that way? There’s tens of thousands of students, how do you make a ‘unified distribution’ when you don’t even have insulation in the truck? ” a parent surnamed Zheng dicho Sound of Hope Radio.

The Thailand-based conglomerate CP Group made its first entry to China in 1979 as the first foreign investor when China opened up trade to the outside in 1978. It has since sprouted to over 200 subsidiaries across the country.

Charoen Pokphand Foods, a company of the CP group, is a top international producer of pork, shrimp and poultry, and the third largest poultry producer in China. The company was also forced to issue a public statement last June after a video of counterfeit eggs with its Chinese Chia Tai package went viral online.

En septiembre 2012, CP Group was involved in a drug scandal as two of its companies, Shanxi Chia Tai and Xiangfan Chia Tai, used gutter oil in their drug production, de acuerdo a Emergency Safety Net. Gutter oil is cooking oil that has been recycled from restaurant fryers, grease traps, sewers, and other sources.

To assure customers that their products are healthy, the CP Group went so far as to deploy a group of “robot nannies” in their chicken farm near Beijing to conduct daily checkups for its 3 million hens.

Food safety in China has been a growing concern as incidents have constantly emerged.

The same day of the protest, 120 kids in three kindergartens in Nanchang of southeastern Jiangxi Province fell sick from suspected food poisoning. The children were admitted to Jiangxi Provincial Children’s Hospital after showing symptoms of vomiting, dizziness, and complaints about abdominal pains. Thirty six were hospitalized, 62 placed under medical observation, y 22 were discharged, according to the Jiangxi News.

Fast food chains including Starbucks, Burger King and McDonald’s apologized to Chinese consumers in July 2014, after it turned out that the meat they sourced from a Shanghai company had expired.

The biggest food scandal in China in recent memory occurred in 2008, when melamine-tainted milk powder killed at least 6 babies and sickened 300,000.

Yao Gang.Yao Gang.

The former high-flying vice chairman of China’s top body for regulating stocks has been brought down, an action experts believe is preparation for the pivotal 19th Party Congress in October.

Yao Gang, 55, was targeted in November 2015, five months after the mid-year stock crash. He is one of the highest-ranking officials disciplined for alleged stock manipulation.

In mid-June of 2015, the stock market that had seen a long bull run lost nearly a third of its value in three weeks. Shanghai and Shenzhen stock indexes plummeted more than 40 percent during the summer.

The procuratorate stated that Yao was subject to “coercive measures,” but did not spell out the details. In an earlier statement issued by the Central Commission for Discipline Inspection, China’s topmost anti-graft agency, Yao was accused of “resisting investigation,” “disrupting the order of the capital market,” and “sabotaging political ecologies in the security regulation department.”

Yao was expelled from the party and dismissed from office on July 20, 2017. en agosto. 31, the Supreme People’s Procuratorate announced he has been placed under investigation for taking bribes.

‘King of IPOs’

Known as the “King of IPOs” at China’s Securities Regulatory Commission (CRSC), Yao had been in charge of public offerings of A shares—stocks of mainland-based companies—since 2002.

Yao enjoyed a lengthy and cushy career in the security regulation sector. He had been the vice director in the futures administration department in 1993, and ended up presiding over the China Securities Commission as deputy director in 2008. In Nov. 2015, he was investigated on suspicion of “serious breaches of Party discipline,” a phrase commonly used for bribery probes in China.

Chinese news portal Tencent suggested that Yao might be connected to Ling Jihua, a former top aide to the previous Party leader Hu Jintao. The CRSC office over which Yao presided approved six requests for public listings from Ling’s fugitive brother Ling Wancheng, including one for the little known company LeTV.

Huijin Lifang Capital, a private equity firm controlled by Ling Wancheng, amassed 1.4 mil millones de yuanes ($225 millón) from an initial public offering, according to Caixin. Ling Jihua was arrested for corruption on July 2015, and given a life sentence the following year.

Following Yao’s downfall in July, some Chinese media have criticized him by calling him a “stock traitor” who “colluded with domestic and foreign forces to short the Chinese stock market.” Ifeng reports that some high officials in CSRC transferred a large amount of capital to Hong Kong and Singapore during the rescue of the market, citing Hong Kong media. At least seven of Yao’s associates in the security regulation system have been placed under investigation, de acuerdo a Xinhua.

A Warning

The same day that Yao was put under investigation, Beijing also confirmed the date of the 19th Party Congress. Some analysts believed that making the two announcements on the same day was a subtle hint that Xi’s corruption campaign might be focusing on the financial sector.

“Xi’s biggest concern is the financial sector that has been secretly doing sabotage,” the political commentator Tang Jingyuan told The Epoch Times. “By striking a blow at the tycoons and punishing tigers in the financial sector like Yao Gang, Xi Jinping is giving a warning to those bigwigs and corruption groups who still have strength to challenge him.”

“Everyone understands that the economy is the biggest pillar of the Chinese government’s legitimacy to govern and win over popular sentiment,” Chen Jieren, a Beijing-based political commentator, told The New York Times in a 2015 entrevista.

Chen said that a declining economy would put more pressure on the leadership. “If the economy falters, the political power of the Chinese Communist Party will be confronted with more real challenges…and Xi Jinping’s administration will suffer even more criticism.”

Yao was one of the five officials disciplined over the past month in the latest anti-corruption probe of China’s financial sector. Zhang Yujun, the former assistant head of the China security watchdog; and Yang Jiacai, the ex-assistant chairman of China Banking Regulatory Commission, were placed under investigation on July 21 and Aug. 1 respectivamente.

According to Beijing News, China has ousted over 60 officials and senior managers in the financial sector since President Xi Jinping came to power in 2012.

A video showing a Chinese police officer slamming a woman holding child to the ground has incensed social media users in the world’s most populous country.

A video, taken by a bystander, shows a woman in Shanghai arguing with an officer over a parking fine. After a heated exchange, the officer suddenly slams the woman to the pavement, while she’s holding her child.

The infant can be seen flying to the pavement. Onlookers rush to the scene and try to help the woman and her child.

On the video, captured Sept. 1, Weibo users condemned the physical force used against the child.

One Weibo user from Nanjing said, “What are these police doing? They should be protecting and serving the people. Even if there are some disputes, it shouldn’t go as far as throwing a child on the ground.”

Another person wrote on Weibo. “After watching the video, I thought the problem was at most an individual issue. But after reading the official Shanghai police report, my opinion completely changed. I feel this is not a problem with any single person, but a very serious political issue. Those two officers have brought shame on entire country’s police forces. If they are not punished, how could the true police of the people tolerate it?"

The official report says that while the police officer was attempting to handle a parking violation, he was obstructed by the disobedient and violent owner. In this Chinese user’s blog, the police are criticized for using excessive and unnecessary force to resolve the situation properly.

En años recientes, Chinese police officers have been criticized for committing human rights abuses. In one dramatic example, Xu Chensheng, a practitioner of Falun Gong—a type of spiritual practice that includes slow-moving, meditative exercises that’s been severely persecuted by the Chinese Communist Party since 1999—died in police custody after just 12 horas.

Durante la última 18 años, encima 4,000 cases have been documented of illegally detained Falun Gong practitioners dying while in the hands of state security. The number of cases that haven’t been documented is much higher.

Chinese police often unlawfully raid the homes of Falun Gong practitioners, confiscating their belongings and detaining them.

Chinese Human Rights Defenders (CHRD) in February said that Beijing recently implemented a series of “draconian laws” that gives more power for police to criminalize human rights activities.

“The Chinese government seems intent on eliminating civil society through a combination of new legislation restricting the funding and operations of NGOs, and the criminalization of human rights activities as a so-called threat to national security,” Frances Eve, a researcher at CHRD, told The Guardian several months ago. “What stands out is the almost institutionalized use of torture to force defenders to confess that their legitimate and peaceful human rights work is somehow a ‘crime’,” Eve added.

A 24-year-old woman was detained by police after she attempted to ship her newborn girl to an orphanage wrapped in plastic bags.

The baby survived and the mother is being investigated for child abandonment.

The mother, surname Luo, lives in the city of Fuzhou in southeast China, algunos 480 miles south of Shanghai.

en agosto. 9, she put her baby in several black plastic bags and handed it over to a courier. She didn’t let him inspect the package contents, local media reported, according to CNN.

The courier took the package and continued on his rounds, but then he noticed the package moved and made sounds. He opened it and, to his shock, he found a baby drenched in sweat inside. The temperatures that day hit a sweltering 98 F.

People gathered around the baby girl and tried to hydrate her by dropping water from a cotton swab on her lips, as shown in a cellphone video circulated online.

The baby was taken to the Jin’an District Hospital and her life was not in danger, the hospital’s official told CNN.

“Police have identified the mother, who said she would take the baby home,” the official said.

Baby girls have often been aborted, abandoned, or even killed in China because of the communist regime’s imposing limits on how many children people can have (the regime imposed the rules in 1979 facing a massive population boom caused by its own mass promotion of having as many children as possible decades before).

In Chinese culture, the son takes care of his elderly parents and the daughter takes care of the parents of her husband. The regime’s social security system only covers about third of the country’s workforce. Most retirees still rely on the filial piety of their children. Así, if couples can’t afford penalties for having a second or third baby, they’re strongly incentivized to ensure their first baby turns out to be a boy.

Former Chongqing boss Sun Zhengcai, 53, was put under investigation on July 24. (bowenpress.com)Former Chongqing boss Sun Zhengcai, 53, was put under investigation on July 24. (bowenpress.com)

A number of Chinese officials from several provinces have hastened to show their support for the investigation into Sun Zhengcai, a powerful cadre who headed the Communist Party organization in the city of Chongqing before his recent ousting.

Sun is one of the highest-ranking officials to be purged by Chinese leader Xi Jinping’s sweeping anti-corruption campaign. A 53, Sun was one of the youngest members of the Politburo, the Chinese regime’s 25-person ruling body, and he was seen by observers as a potential successor to Xi Jinping as China’s next leader.

En julio 15, Sun was removed from his position and a week later, put under investigation for “severe violations of discipline,” a phrase synonymous with corruption.

In ousting Sun Zhengcai, Xi Jinping has strengthened his position, evidenced by the multitude of officials—including from the cities of Beijing, Tianjin, and Shanghai and the provinces of Jilin and Hunan—who have eagerly “demonstrated loyalty” to Xi and his anti-corruption campaign.

Their eagerness to distance themselves from Sun suggests that Sun’s crimes, although unclear, are particularly grave.

En julio 26, an emergency meeting of provincial officials was held in Zhongnanhai, the Beijing compound that hosts the Communist Party leadership. Observers believe this meeting was convened as a means of weakening internal opposition to Xi Jinping.

The fall of Sun and the expressions of support for his investigation indicate that Xi is gaining the upper hand against the powerful opposing faction helmed by former Party chief Jiang Zemin, in the months leading up to a major Party reshuffling later this year.

During his time in power from 1993 a 2003, Jiang fostered a culture of kleptocracy, corrupción, and abuse of power in China. He maintained strong informal networks in the communist regime even after being superseded by Party head Hu Jintao, and many officials remain tied into Jiang’s faction.

Chongqing, a provincial-level city with a population of some 30 millón, is a major commercial and industrial hub. Prior to Xi’s ascension to power in 2012, it had been run by Bo Xilai, a prominent Jiang ally. Bo was sentenced to life in prison in 2013.

Sun Zhengcai was once the top aide to two allies of Jiang Zemin and succeeded Bo as Party boss of Chongqing. Before this assignment, he had been a Party secretary of Jilin Province in Northeast China, where the Jiang faction also enjoys influence.

En febrero, the Party’s disciplinary agency, which carries out the anti-corruption campaign, reprimanded the Chongqing administration for failing to thoroughly cleanse itself from the corrupt influences of its former boss, Bo Xilai, and his right-hand man, Wang Lijun.

“When Sun Zhengcai came to office in Chongqing, he was supposed to purge the ‘residual poison’ of Bo Xilan and Wang Lijun, but he not only failed to do so but also colluded with the ‘residue poison’,” said one Beijing princeling—a term for the children of revolutionary Party leaders—in an interview with the Epoch Times. He asked to remain anonymous to protect his identity.

“Sun’s wife set up a lady’s club in Beijing and had close relations with Gu Liping, the wife of Ling Jihua,”, Agregó. Ling Jihua is part of the Jiang faction and the former top aide to the Chinese Communist Party. He was purged for corruption in July 2015.

The Beijing princeling added that Sun also sought to gain personal profits from the ‘One Belt, One Road’ initiative that has been marketed as a cornerstone of Xi Jinping’s foreign policy.

The timing of Sun’s purge notably coincides with an annual gathering of top Party leaders at Beidaihe, a seaside resort town a few dozen miles away from Beijing. They will delineate future plans for the Party and configure the roster of the new Party leadership, which will be determined at the 19th National Congress at the end of this year.

“Sun Zhengcai was basically Jiang Zemin’s designated, cross-generational successor,” said the Beijing princeling. “Sun Zhengcai’s fall cuts the Jiang faction off from their escape route. It is impossible for him to succeed Xi Jinping in the future.”

Xi Jinping decided to oust Sun to avoid a replay of a 2012 coup attempt by Bo Xilai and security czar Zhou Yongkang, said independent political commentator Hua Po.

A Xi loyalist, Chen Min’er, has taken Sun’s place as Chongqing’s chief. Chen worked with Xi Jinping when Xi was Party chief of Zhejiang Province from 2002 a 2007 before being sent to lead the impoverished province of Guizhou. As Chongqing chiefs typically sit on the elite Politburo, Chen’s placement gives Xi the opportunity to nab another seat on the 25-member body during the 19th National Congress.

Hermanos Wanqing Huang y Xiong Huang con su familia en China. (Cortesía de Xiong Huang)Hermanos Wanqing Huang y Xiong Huang con su familia en China. (Cortesía de Xiong Huang)

Cada vez que Huang Wanqing pasa junto a una promoción de “Cuerpo de la Exposición” puede preguntarse si es el cuerpo mutilado de su hermano mirándolo desde los carteles.

Señor. El hermano de Huang, Huang Xiong, fue perseguido por las autoridades comunistas en China por sus creencias. Él se realizó en un campo de trabajo y monitoreada después de la liberación. En 2003, desapareció en Shanghai. Huang cree que su hermano fue secuestrado por el régimen y probablemente murió bajo custodia.

Huang Xiong practica Falun Gong, un sistema tradicional de auto-cultivo que implica ejercicios de meditación y en base a los principios de veracidad, compasión, y la tolerancia. Falun Gong ha sido muy popular en China durante la década de 1990 y elogiado por las autoridades por sus beneficios para la salud. Por 1999, acerca de 70-100 millones practicaban, basado en gobierno calcula en el momento.

Algunos en el liderazgo del régimen, sin embargo, especialmente la cabeza del Partido Comunista Jiang Zemin, tratado creciente popularidad de Falun Gong como una amenaza ideológica a las doctrinas del partido y en 1999 lanzó una campaña en todo el estado de la represión y la propaganda contra Falun Gong.

millones organizaciones de derechos humanos han estimado que han sido encarcelados como parte de la campaña y, conservadoramente, miles de personas han muerto, por lo general como resultado de la tortura durante la detención.

Más que un década de investigaciones También han descubierto que el régimen ha estado matando detenidos practicantes de Falun Gong, así como otros presos de conciencia, y el robo de sus órganos para que una empresa de trasplante sancionada por el estado masiva.

“El cuerpo de la Exposición” muestra real, plastinados (silicona conservado) cuerpos humanos. Esto causó controversia por carecer de la documentación de la fuente de los cuerpos y consentimientos de los difuntos o sus familiares con respecto a su exhibición pública póstuma con fines de lucro.

tom Zaller, CEO de Exposiciones Imagínese que está presentando actualmente la exposición en Praga, dicho Radio Pública de Nevada que trabajaba con un médico en China, que reúne a los cuerpos no identificados plastinate.

Grupo JVS, la empresa que invita a la exposición a Praga, gracias Zaller y una empresa china de Dalian Hoffen plastinación Biotech en sus materiales de promoción.

Dalien era un centro de la industria plastinación. Bo Xilai, quién era el jefe Dalien Parte en el momento y más tarde se le entregó una sentencia de cadena perpetua por corrupción, estuvo involucrado en un esquema que suministraba mató a los practicantes a los hospitales de trasplante, así como instalaciones de plastinación, basado en la investigación Época.

Muchos de los practicantes de Falun Gong detenidos se negaron a dar sus nombres a las autoridades para proteger a sus familias de la persecución. El hermano de Huang era uno de ellos. Eso permitió que el régimen de declarar sus cuerpos no identificados.

Huang, que vive en los EE.UU., recientemente ha presentó una denuncia penal en contra de la exposición en Praga, República Checa. Está pidiendo las autoridades para identificar los cuerpos, tal como mediante pruebas de ADN, para determinar si el cuerpo de su hermano es o no es una de ellas.

La exposición se ha topado con una resistencia significativa en Checo, donde la ley requiere que los órganos humanos fallecidos a ser tratado con respeto y debidamente enterrados.

Ministerio Checa para el Desarrollo Local ha pedido a los funcionarios Praga para confiscar y enterrar los cuerpos en exhibición, pero la policía se ha negado a actuar sobre la solicitud sin una orden judicial. jan Čižinský, Alcalde del término municipal de Praga, donde la exposición se lleva a cabo, tiene la intención de llevar el asunto a los tribunales.

“Es necesario recurrir a los tribunales por lo que se pone de manifiesto, de una vez por todas, que tales exposiciones no éticas no pueden estar en nuestro país y que el respeto de los fallecidos no es sólo una frase vacía en una ley no ejecutadas,”Dijo Čižinský.

Chinese official Huang Qifan holds the distinction of having served as mayor or vice-mayor of China’s southwestern megalopolis of Chongqing across the successive terms of six Communist Party secretaries overseeing the provincial-level municipality.

Last December, Huang was demoted and made to serve as vice-head of a financial committee in the largely powerless National People’s Congress.

En julio 10, Huang and six other members of the Three Gorges Construction Committee were removed from this posting as well. Huang still retains his seat in the national legislature.

What likely brought Huang down a notch were his connections to ex-Communist Party Politburo member Bo Xilai, once the Party secretary of Chongqing.

En 2012, Bo Xilai’s head of police, Wang Lijun, defected to the U.S. Consulado en Chengdu, causing a scandal that dashed Bo’s chances at being chosen to serve in the seven-man Politburo Standing Committee that leads the Communist Party.

líder chino Xi Jinping, who came to power later in 2012 after the Communist Party’s 18th National Congress, quickly moved to purge Bo. His suspended death sentence in 2013, which effectively amounted to life in prison, was the first blow in Xi’s anti-corruption campaign against Bo’s backers—the informal Party faction associated with former leader Jiang Zemin.

Since the beginning of the campaign, state-controlled media say that over 1 million Chinese officials have been disciplined, including hundreds of high-ranking Party cadres. The Jiang faction, which had influence from the 1990s up through the 18th Party Congress, is Xi’s main target in this political endeavor.

Huang’s links to the Jiang faction are apparent. According to China News Service, Huang publicly boasted of his political affinity with Bo Xilai during the high-profile “Two Sessions” political conferences in 2010, claiming that their partnership was “as fish to water.” It was in 2010 that Huang was promoted to mayor of Chongqing and became vice secretary of the municipal committee. Many other titles, like “scholar-official,” “CEO of Chongqing,” or “economic expert” appeared on his resume.

Bo trusted Huang so much that during Wang Lijun incident, Huang was entrusted to negotiate with the U.S. and take Wang back. The mayor deployed 70 police cars and surrounded the U.S. consulate at Bo’s command.

In addition to his work in Chongqing, Huang spent 18 years working in Shanghai, where Jiang Zemin made his own political career and still has some lasting influence.

Not Yet Investigated

After Bo Xilai’s downfall, Huang Qifan was not targeted immediately, and to date he has not been placed under investigation, unlike many other Jiang Zemin associates. His current posting in the National People’s Congress is in line with what is common for other officials reaching the ends of their careers.

In the eyes of his supporters, Huang was energetic, erudite, and could speak for hours without referring to script while citing an impressive amount of data, Hong Kong-based HK01 reported. When he was in office, Chongqing experienced rapid economic development. En 2015, Chongqing’s GDP growth was 11 por ciento, the highest in the country.

But this February, the Communist Party’s disciplinary commission said that upon investigation, Chongqing was found to have problems with corruption in state-owned companies and “residual poison” was still left over from the time of Bo Xilai and Wang Lijun.

Huang’s son, Huang Yi, monopolized the steel reselling business as a middleman for the state-owned Chongqing Iron and Steel Company. Huang Yi imported iron ore from Australia and resold to the company, taking a high commission for boosting employment. By the time Huang left Chongqing in 2016, the company had become known as the city’s largest “zombie firm.” It was sustained by government subsidy and had incurred losses of 13.2 mil millones de yuanes ($1.94 millones) over five years.

Recent removal from the Three Gorges Construction committee also comes at a politically sensitive time: the 19th Party Congress coming up later this year provides the Xi administration with an opportunity to appoint and change personnel, and further sideline political opponents from positions of influence.

Huang may have seen this coming. After Bo Xilai’s downfall, Huang was quick to denounce his former ally, declaring that he would “firmly support all actions of the central authorities” and calling for “consideration of the overall situation.” Huang also claims that he was familiar with Bo’s aspirations for national leadership.

Chinese leader Xi Jinping recently took out yet another key member of a rival political faction — one whose name, de paso, somewhat resembles his own. The downfall of Xin Jiping (not to be confused with Xi Jinping) was so low key and swift that less discerning observers would easily miss both the event and its larger significance.

En abril, the anti-corruption authorities in Shanghai issued a one-line statement concerning the investigation of Xin, formerly a senior executive at two private property developers.

Tres meses después, Chinese state mouthpiece Xinhua announced in a one paragraph and one line notice that Xin had been found guilty of taking bribes and defrauding the state. Xin’s case had also been transferred to the procuratorate to await formal prosecution. Missing from Xinhua’s notice, sin embargo, was the customary professional biography.

Xin being prosecuted is “very important news” because of his political allegiances, according to Shanghai-based human rights lawyer Zheng Enchong.

Xin was originally a senior official in the Shanghai municipal government before he joined the private sector, Zheng dijo. That Xin would eventually become assume top executive positions—Xin was vice president of Shanghai Real Estate Group and board chairman of Shanghai Hongqiao Economic and Technological Development Zone Joint Development Co., Ltd.—showed that he was “from the very beginning a trusted crony of the Shanghai Gang.”

The Shanghai Gang refers to a notorious political clique helmed by former Chinese Communist Party boss Jiang Zemin. Zheng continues to suffer persecution from having tussled with the Shanghai Gang in the early 2000s while defending local residents.

“Xin Jiping once controlled land resources in Shanghai,"Dijo Zheng. “That means Xin worked with Jiang Miankang, and can be considered Jiang’s lackey.”

Jiang Miankang, the younger son of Jiang Zemin, was once Inspector of the Shanghai Municipal Commission of Construction and Administration, a vaguely-defined position that gave Jiang Miankang oversight of land use, demolition, zoning, as well as planning and construction in Shanghai—a highly lucrative portfolio.

The Jiangs, sin embargo, have been losing influence in recent years.

En diciembre 2015, Jiang Miankang was dismissed from his Inspector post, and became principal of the Shanghai Urban And Rural Construction And Traffic Development Academy.

In early April, the Hong Kong Economic Journal reported that Jiang had quietly resigned from his latest post and is now in retirement. And Xin Jiping, Jiang’s associate, was officially investigated for corruption a few days after the Journal’s story.

Zheng Enchong believes that Xin being prosecuted shows “very clearly” that Jiang Miankang is in trouble, and that Xi Jinping is “moving step by step closer towards the Jiang faction.”

Jiang Zemin’s faction ran China during his rule (1989-2002) and then exerted outsize influence behind the scenes during that of former Chinese leader Hu Jintao (2003-2012). Many Jiang faction members became immensely wealthy through corruption, and were rewarded with promotions for their pursuit of Jiang’s favored political crusade, the persecution of practitioners of Falun Gong, una disciplina espiritual tradicional china.

Shortly after taking office, Xi Jinping sought to dislodge Jiang’s faction and consolidate his control over the Chinese regime through an anti-corruption campaign. Although many elite faction members and their associates have been purged, the Jiang faction still appears to wield influence in key regime apparatuses like propaganda y domestic security. With the regime’s “deep state” being swayed by the Jiang faction, the Xi leadership has appeared to be erratic and inconstant in implementing reform-oriented policies.

Zheng Enchong the rights lawyer anticipates the arrest of Jiang Zemin’s two sons, Jiang Miankang and Jiang Mianheng. “Xi Jinping has stripped Jiang’s sons of their official posts, frozen their assets, and now appears to be discrediting them," él dijo. “As for how to handle Jiang Zemin, Xi still needs to figure out a tactful and orderly solution.”

Zheng believes that the final take down of Jiang Zemin has already begun. According to Zheng, Hu Jintao had proposed during a high-level internal meeting in April that his and Jiang’s socio-political theories should be removed from the Chinese constitution.

“If that happens,"Dijo Zheng, “then Jiang Zemin will effectively be dead inside the Chinese Communist Party.”

China en ContextoChina en Contexto

Chairman Mao Zedong’s ruthless running of China might have come to a premature end if he had had a less capable right-hand man than Premier Zhou Enlai.

With Zhou around to help consolidate power, purge internal rivals, and play the suave diplomat, Mao stayed influential in the Chinese regime until his death in 1976, despite having overseen politically disastrous campaigns—including the Great Leap Forward, a mass collectivization program that killed tens of millions of Chinese, and the wrecking of China’s five-millennia-old traditions during the Cultural Revolution.

Like Mao, former Communist Party boss Jiang Zemin oversaw policies that, in the time to come, will almost certainly be condemned, such as fostering a culture of corruption and promoting kleptocracy among the Chinese officialdom and launching a brutal persecution campaign against the peaceful practitioners of Falun Gong. Jiang was fortunate to have found a most cunning consigliere in former Party vice-chairman Zeng Qinghong.

Zeng, 77, is Jiang’s longtime confidant, hatchetman, and spymaster. Jiang got to know Zeng in Shanghai, the Chinese metropolis that Jiang headed in the 1980s. Because Zeng was part of the Red aristocracy and had proven to be a very capable political enabler, Jiang decided he must keep Zeng close to him in Beijing when he was appointed as paramount leader by Deng Xiaoping. Jiang was chosen to succeed Zhao Ziyang, the liberal-leaning Party leader, in the aftermath of the Tiananmen Square massacre in 1989.

For nearly two decades, Zeng helped Jiang dispose of problematic political rivals and grow Jiang’s own political faction. Hong Kong became a Jiang bastion after Zeng became overseer of the semi-autonomous city in the early 2000s. Former Party elites like Politburo member Bo Xilai and security czar Zhou Yongkang were widely considered untouchable because of their association with the Jiang faction.

sin embargo, the attempted defection of Bo’s right-hand man, Wang Lijun, en 2012 marked the beginning of the end for Jiang’s faction. Given their propensity for malfeasance, members of the Jiang faction became natural targets of the internal police officers tasked with executing Chinese leader Xi Jinping’s anti-corruption campaign.

Speculation that an investigation of Zeng Qinghong was imminent first surfaced in 2014, following the arrest of Zhou Yongkang. Hong Kong magazines started reporting stories of Zeng’s corruption, and Zeng’s senior associates got picked up by anti-corruption investigators.

The Xi leadership appears to be going full throttle for Zeng this year. Zeng’s cronies in the Chinese financial industry have gotten into trouble—think missing billionaire Xiao Jianhua, detained Anbang chairman Wu Xiaohui, and purged deputy state asset regulator Zhang Xiwu. Other lesser cronies have been rounded up as well.

Because Zhou Enlai died eight months before Mao, he never had to worry about preserving his boss’s legacy. Zeng Qinghong, sin embargo, will almost certainly have to confess to assisting Jiang’s crimes and witness the crumbling of all that he helped Jiang to achieve.

(Don Tse/China Decoding)(Don Tse/China Decoding)

Lin Shangli, a former deputy principal of the prestigious Fudan University in Shanghai, was recently promoted to Secretary-general of the Central Policy Research Office, according to a July 6 notice by the General Office of the State Council of China.

Lin, a former student of Chinese leader Xi Jinping’s top adviser Wang Huning, seems set to play a prominent role in Xi’s new administration after the Chinese Communist Party’s 19th National Congress at the end of the year.

Wang Huning is the director of the Central Policy Research Office and a member of the Politburo. Wang served as top political theoretician to two former Communist Party secretary-generals—Jiang Zemin and Hu Jintao—and reprises the role of “Zhongnanhai’s chief strategist” under Xi. To draw an imperfect analogy, what Wang Huning is to Xi Jinping is somewhat similar to what White House Chief Strategist Steve Bannon is to President Donald Trump.

Wang is widely tipped for a seat in the seven-man Politburo Standing Committee, the top decision making body in the Chinese regime, at the 19th Congress.

The Central Policy Research Office is responsible for top-level analysis work and policy formulation. The Research Office, or “Zhongnanhai’s Think-tank,” also issues important documents, legislation, informes, and theoretical work.

New Research Office secretary-general Lin Shangli served as Fudan University’s vice-principal in April 2011. En marzo 2013, Lin concurrently held a professorship at Tongji University. En mayo 24, 2016, an official notice indicated that Lin was stepping down as a standing committee member at Fudan University’s school committee; the official notice didn’t indicate if he was taking up a new post.

But Lin’s recent promotion and his serving on a new 27-member State Council committee that oversees educational material suggest that he is in fact being considered a valuable asset by the Xi Jinping administration.

China Decoding believes that Lin’s recent rise to prominence is due to him being the former student of Research Office director Wang Huning when they were both at Fudan University.

In the 1980s, Wang was a Fudan political science and international politics lecturer, and later international politics department head and law school dean. mientras tanto, Lin was doing his undergraduate and doctoral studies in Fudan’s political science and international politics faculty.

After graduation, Lin served on Fudan’s school committee. He later became director of the international politics department, as well as associate dean of Fudan’s School of International Relations and Public Affairs.

Going by their CVs, Lin and Wang almost certainly have a student-teacher relationship, and are also former colleagues. Así, there is a distinct possibility that Wang was behind Lin’s promotion.

Wang himself appears to be one of Xi Jinping’s most important confidants. Por ejemplo, Wang is usually seen by Xi’s side during diplomatic trips. Chinese state-run media often feature photos of Xi with Wang on his right and General Office head Li Zhanshu on his left—a telling sign that Xi considers Wang and Li to be his closest administrators.

China Decoding has observed that Wang is helping Xi set the political direction for the post-19th Congress China—many of Wang’s political views appear to be paving the way for Xis new policies.

If Wang Huning makes the Politburo Standing Committee at the 19th Congress, he will likely be put in charge of ideological and propaganda work.

There isn’t much information available about the Central Policy Research Office. The Research Office’s top management includes one director, three deputy directors, and one secretary.

The Research Office personnel has been reshuffled multiple times since Xi Jinping took office in 2012.

En 2013, Research Office executive deputy director He Yiting was transferred to the Central Party School to serve as executive vice-principal.

En 2014, Propaganda Department deputy minister Wang Xiaohui was appointed as a deputy director of the Research Office. Este año, Wang was promoted to executive deputy director.

En junio 2016, Research Office deputy director Jiang Jinquan was made team leader of a Central Commission for Discipline Inspection (CCDI) team stationed in the State-owned Assets Supervision and Administration Commission, the world’s largest controlling company that oversees over a trillion dollars in assets.

En marzo 2017, Zhang Wei, the Research Office’s office manager, was promoted to Research Office deputy director.

En junio 2017, Pan Shengzhou, the deputy director of the Central Reform Office and deputy director of the Central Political Affairs Department, was transferred to head the CCDI inspection team inside the Hong Kong and Macau Affairs Office.

In the final analysis, it seems very likely that Xi Jinping had preemptively promoted Lin Shangli to ensure that the Chinese regime’s think-tank continues to be headed by those he can trust after the 19th Congress. Should Wang Huning move up to the Politburo Standing Committee, he would leave vacant the position of Research Office director—and also the ideal successor.

Laborers renovate a roof of a residential lane house in Shanghai on Aug. 21, 2014. (JOHANNES Eisele / AFP / Getty Images)Laborers renovate a roof of a residential lane house in Shanghai on Aug. 21, 2014. (JOHANNES Eisele / AFP / Getty Images)

When the economy started to cool in the beginning of 2016, China opened up the debt spigots again to stimulate the economy. After the failed initiative with the stock market in 2015, Chinese central planners chose residential real estate again.

And it worked. As mortgages made up 40.5 percent of new bank loans in 2016, house prices were rising at more than 10 percent year over year for most of 2016 and the beginning of 2017. En general, they got so expensive that the average Chinese would have had to spend more than 160 times his annual income to purchase an average housing unit at the end of 2016.

Because housing uses a lot of human resources and raw material inputs, the economy also stabilized and has been doing rather well in 2017, according to both the official numbers and unofficial reports from organizations like the China Beige Book (CBB), which collects independent, on-the-ground data about the Chinese economy.

“China Beige Book’s new Q2 results show an economy that improved again, compared to both last quarter and a year ago, with retail and services each bouncing back from underwhelming Q1 performances,” states the most recent CBB report.

sin embargo, because Beijing’s central planners must walk a tightrope between stimulating the economy and exacerbating a financial bubble, they tightened housing regulations as well as lending in the beginning of 2017.

Has the Bubble Burst?

Research by TS Lombard now suggests the housing bubble may have burst for the second time after 2014.

“We expect the latest round of policy tightening in the property sector to drive down housing sales significantly over the next six months,” states the research firm, in its latest “China Watch” report.

One of the major reasons for the concern is increased regulation. Out of the 55 cities measured in the national property price index, 25 have increased regulation on housing purchases.

In Beijing, por ejemplo, some owners of residential real estate can no longer sell their apartments to private buyers—instead, they have to sell to businesses, because their apartment has been marked for business use by the authorities.

Other measures include higher down payments, price controls, and increasing the time until the unit can be sold again.

“First- and second-tier cities have enacted such draconian measures that it is nigh impossible to buy or sell a property,"Señala el informe.

Credit Tightening

Although the central bank left its benchmark mortgage lending rate unchanged at 4.9 por ciento, banks have increased the rates they charge on mortgages to as high as 6 percent and, in some cases, have stopped giving out mortgages altogether because they have used up their quotas set by regulators.

The People’s Bank of China wants to lower the share of mortgage lending to 30 percent of new loans, which should influence new demand for housing.

“Unlike 10 hace años que, when most Chinese households made a 50 a 70 percent down payment to buy a new apartment, mas que 80 percent of borrowers in the past two years have put down 30 percent or less. With reduced mortgage funding availability, we believe it is unlikely that households will be able to finance their purchase through savings,” states the TS Lombard report.

Hasta aquí, the slow down in larger cities has been offset by more activity in smaller cities, which haven’t implemented as many tightening measures.

“Overall revenues and profits plunged in Tier 1 ciudades, with the slowdown concentrated primarily in the Beijing and Shanghai regions. Hiring stagnated, while cash flow worsened across the board,” the China Beige Book says.

sin embargo, TS Lombard expects smaller cities to follow the bigger cities with more restrictive measures for property buying, which will ultimately lead to a decline in housing transactions, if not prices outright.

“Property sales will decelerate notably in [the second half of 2017], with the monthly number of new residential housing transactions set to drop by 10 percent year-on-year, compared with a year-on-year rise of 8.3 percent in May.”

WASHINGTON-La evidencia de la extirpación de órganos forzada de un gran número de practicantes de Falun Gong en China sigue aumentando.

El año pasado, dos informes se publicaron que amplió nuestra idea de la magnitud y el método de esta atrocidad. "Cosecha sangrienta / La Masacre-Una actualización”Por los investigadores David Matas, David Kilgour, y Ethan Gutmann fue lanzada en junio 22 en Washington, Distrito de Columbia. Este informe muestra evidencia detallada de la enorme cantidad de trasplantes de órganos que tienen lugar en los hospitales chinos. Se analizó ingresos de los hospitales, conteos de cama y las tasas de utilización, el personal quirúrgico y otros datos y llegaron a la conclusión de que China está llevando a cabo 60,000 a 100,000 trasplantes por año, muy por encima de la pretensión del gobierno chino de 10,000 por año.

El otro informe, “Informe resumido del delito de sustracción de órganos en vivo en China,”Por la Organización Mundial para Investigar la Persecución a Falun Gong (WOIPFG), fue publicado en agosto. Se proporciona una amplia evidencia de que la extracción de órganos es orquestada desde los más altos niveles del gobierno chino y no es un delito de sólo algunos hospitales y cirujanos sin escrúpulos poco éticas. El informe afirma que WOIPFG extracción de órganos es un delito sancionado estado en una escala masiva que está pasando en este momento, con el objetivo de matar a los practicantes de Falun Gong, una disciplina espiritual tradicional china, que no va a renunciar a su fe.

Ahora viene la segunda película documental importante de WOIPFG, “capturan vivos - Diez años de investigación,”, Que muestras las principales conclusiones de su informe del año pasado.

Al escuchar el audio real de alto nivel del Partido Comunista de China (CCP) funcionarios, cirujanos y personal del hospital hablan con indiferencia de su papel en la extracción de órganos forzada de prisioneros inocentes de conciencia proporciona una percepción horrible que la página impresa del informe WOIPFG no puede acercarse en el impacto emocional.

Hospital de Boiler Room ‘’ cremaciones

El anfitrión de la película es Dr. Wang Zhiyuan, cuyas palabras se traducen. Dr. Wang pasó 30 años como médico militar de la aviación en China y luego llegaron a la U.S. en 1995 para llevar a cabo la investigación en la enfermedad cardiovascular en la Escuela de Salud Pública de Harvard. Fue el fundador de la WOIPFG, y es su presidente.

En la película, Wang dijo que su vida cambió para siempre en marzo 9, 2006, cuando escuchó las alegaciones de extracción de órganos a gran escala de los prisioneros de Falun Gong mientras estaban vivos en el Hospital Sujiatun en Shenyang Trombosis. Una mujer que usa el alias de “Annie” afirmó su ex marido, un cirujano ocular impulsado por culpa, confesó a ella que él había extraído las córneas de más de 2,000 practicantes de Falun Gong.

Wang, quien se mostró escéptico, dijo que él y sus colegas WOIPFG decidió que deben investigar más a fondo. Que estaban buscando pruebas, pero los doctores y enfermeras en el hospital de Sujiatun fueron de ayuda. Entonces Wang llamó a la sala de calderas del hospital y aprendió que los cadáveres estaban siendo quemados allí. A partir de su propia experiencia, pensó que era muy inusual ya que los pacientes fallecidos normalmente se trasladaron a la morgue del hospital y se envían a una funeraria para la cremación.

Wang cree que [la quema de cadáveres en la sala de calderas del hospital] fue de lo más inusual, ya que normalmente los pacientes fallecidos se mueven a la morgue del hospital y se envían a una funeraria para la cremación.

Wang encontraron esta cuestión inquietante y tan basado en él y las otras alegaciones en Sujiatun, él y sus colegas WOIPFG inició una investigación preliminar. investigadores en WOIPFG 2006-2007 llamado 23 hospitales en China preguntando si había órganos hepáticos disponibles de practicantes de Falun Gong. En la película, escuchamos una grabación realizada el mar. 6, 2006 de un médico de la Universidad Fudan de Shanghai, Centro de Trasplantes del Hospital Zhongshan, respuesta, “Todo lo que tenemos es de este tipo.”

Funcionarios de alto nivel PCC Saber

investigadores WOIPFG, haciéndose pasar por la elaboración de otras oficinas de CCP, elicitadas varias declaraciones vía telefónica desde funcionarios de alto nivel, que sin el conocimiento de quién estaban hablando realmente a, y confirmado su participación en la extracción de órganos. Estos son algunos ejemplos del documental.

Tang Jun, Vicepresidente, Provincia de Liaoning Política & Comisión de Asuntos Jurídicos, se le preguntó acerca de la orden de tomar órganos de practicantes de Falun Gong para cirugías de trasplante. Él dijo, “Yo estaba a cargo de este. los [CCP] Comité Central fue en realidad gestionando este tema, y tuvo un impacto generalizado.”Tang también dijo que el asunto fue discutido en reuniones del Comité Central.

Li Changchun, Politburó Permanente miembro, se le preguntó sobre Bo Xilai, quien, una semana antes, había sido objeto de investigación por parte del Comité de Disciplina CCP. Cuando la persona que llama (investigador WOIPFG) pedido de abril 17, 2012 sobre la participación de Bo en el delito de sustracción de órganos de practicantes de Falun Gong, Li respondió de inmediato, “Zhou Yongkang es el encargado de esta; él sabe; ir a preguntarle “.

Zhou Yongkang era en ese momento un miembro del Comité Permanente del Politburó, el órgano de decisión más importante en el régimen chino. Como zar de la seguridad interna, Zhou ejercía un enorme poder en general, y específicamente sobre los detenidos Falun Gong en campos de concentración. Fue condenado a finales de junio 2015 a cadena perpetua en los cambios relacionados con la corrupción.

Cuando está activo en el Comité Permanente, Zhou vez se le preguntó por los investigadores sobre los más de 20 practicantes de Falun Gong que habían escapado de un puesto militar (es decir, campo de concentración). No estaba en la negación o sorprendido, y dijo que investigaría el propio, Según el director de WOIPFG para la concienciación del público Dr.. Charles Lee, que habló en el foro de Capitol.

WOIPFG investigadores jugaron un ardid cuidado en servir miembro del Comité Permanente del Politburó Zhang Gaoli de conseguir que reconocer, sin saberlo, función principal de Jiang Zemin en la extracción de órganos de millones de practicantes de Falun Gong vivos. Jiang, el ex jefe de CCP, lanzó la persecución a Falun Gong de julio 20, 1999, y coaccionado a los otros miembros del Politburó para ir junto con sus deseos.

WOIPFG sabía cuando Zhang estaría fuera del país en Kazajstán. Después de Zhang llegado y registrado en el hotel, WOIPFG investigador lo llamó, haciéndose pasar por “Secretario Liu,”Que trabaja en la oficina de Jiang Zemin. El investigador dijo Zhang que decenas de miles de practicantes de Falun Gong habían presentado quejas criminales contra Jiang en la Fiscalía Popular Suprema para la recolección de los órganos de millones de practicantes de Falun Gong, y que el sujeto va a ser educado en la próxima reunión del Politburó. En la grabación, Zhang preguntó si podía evitar que la discusión y la investigación. Oímos la voz de Zhang respuesta, "Sí! Sí!"

El investigador WOIPFG repite cuatro veces que Jiang había ordenado la sustracción de órganos de millones de practicantes de Falun Gong vivos y que la responsabilidad era muy grave. Sin ninguna reserva o desacuerdo, Zhang prometió que iba a impedir la investigación y dijo a la persona que llama para decirle que no se preocupe Jiang. Se puso fin a la llamada que desee Jiang una larga vida y buena salud.

Todas las grabaciones telefónicas están etiquetados con los recibos de las compañías telefónicas con el tiempo, números de teléfono y la duración llamados. Las voces de los funcionarios de alto nivel en las grabaciones pueden ser comparados con sus voces disponibles en línea y en otros lugares y verificadas por los laboratorios acústicos, estados WOIPFG.

En total, WOIPFG tiene las grabaciones como evidencia de que el saqueo de órganos en China es un delito que está dirigida por el PCC y llevado a cabo por los militares, instituciones del Estado, hospitales, y profesionales de trasplante.

Lo anterior es sólo una muestra de las grabaciones relativas a los conocimientos y la influencia funcionarios de alto nivel en un crimen masivo estado sancionado en el asesinato de miles de practicantes desde 2000. Hay más evidencia en el documental sobre otros aspectos de la delincuencia.

Guardia de la Policía se adelanta

Una entrevista grabada es especialmente escalofriante e impactante. Fue a partir del único testigo real de la cirugía espantosa en la película. En un hospital militar en Shenyang, un guardia de seguridad armado de la provincia de Liaoning fue testigo de la matanza de los practicantes por sus órganos 2002.

Lo que el guardia de seguridad descrito era “demasiado vívidamente horribles,"WOIPFG presidente dijo Wang Zhiyuan, y dijo que sufría de insomnio y depresión después de escuchar el testimonio. En 2009, La conciencia de la guardia de seguridad le molestaba y así se puso en contacto WOIPFG con la que había estado en contacto durante más de un mes. El guardia de seguridad recordó testigo de dos médicos militares que extraen el corazón, hígado, córnea, y el cerebro (“Chupado la pulpa cerebral a cabo”) de un practicante hembra aún vivo sin el uso de anestesia.

Fue testigo de dos médicos que extraen el corazón, hígado, córnea, y el cerebro de un practicante de Falun Gong sin el uso de anestesia.

“Cuando el cuchillo le tocó el pecho, ella gritó, 'Falun Dafa Hao,‘”, Que significa Falun Dafa es bueno. El corazón fue tallada en primera. Ella había sido torturado con bastones eléctricos para una semana, él dijo. Wang llegó a la conclusión de que esta no era la cirugía normal, pero en cambio, fue “una continuación de torturar a los practicantes de Falun Gong.”

¿Por Estreno en el U.S. Capital

Li Jun, el director y productor de “capturan vivos,”, Dijo después de la proyección que conscientemente eligieron la capital de los Estados Unidos, Washington, Distrito de Columbia, y la U.S. Congreso para celebrar el estreno Inglés. Hablando a través de un traductor, dijo, “Es muy evidente que este crimen [el saqueo de órganos de practicantes de Falun Gong en una escala masiva] es el estado de sancionado por el CCP. Queremos que el U.S. gobierno como el líder mundial, a hacer algo al respecto “.

Dr. Peng Tao, la co-productor de “cosechó Alive,”Espera que la película que todos puedan‘entender los crímenes cometidos el PCC y tenemos que detenerlo’.

Dr. Wang expresó su frustración de que el mundo no presta mucha atención a lo que está pasando en China. “Es una vergüenza para la raza humana. Es por eso que quería decir la U.S. gobierno y el mundo entero, que realmente debería trabajar para detener esto “.

Si ni siquiera la mitad de las afirmaciones hechas por el documental son verdaderas, hay que llamar el tráfico de órganos en China verdaderamente bárbara y un crimen contra la humanidad.

- El congresista Chris Smith (R-N.J.), carta, junio 23, 2017

El congresista Chris Smith (R-N.J.), co-presidente de la Comisión del Congreso Ejecutivo de China, (CECC), escribió una carta para ser leído en la investigación de la premier de “capturan vivos.” Al observar que él llevó a cabo una audiencia sobre este tema en 1998, Reps. Smith dijo que el tráfico de órganos con fines de lucro que ha estado ocurriendo en China desde hace dos décadas y que las pruebas en el documental muestra que no ha cambiado mucho.

“Si ni siquiera la mitad de las afirmaciones hechas por el documental son verdaderas, hay que llamar el tráfico de órganos en China verdaderamente bárbara y un crimen contra la humanidad “.

Reps. Smith continuó, “Necesitamos un esfuerzo concertado para detener esta brutal práctica en China y en el mundo.”

Dr. Wang dijo que en este mes de Junio, un hospital en la provincia de Jilin está regalando a los trasplantes de hígado gratuitas 10 niños. (Indicó que de abril 28, 2006, un hospital en la provincia de Hunan, donde la persecución a Falun Gong había sido particularmente grave, corrió una promoción anunciando 20 de hígado o riñón trasplantes libres.) Wang dijo que “regalar” sólo podía significar una gran cantidad de órganos y una piscina muy grande de profesionales disponibles para ser cosechada del hospital y mató.

En los EE.UU. que tiene un sistema mucho más madura de la donación de órganos, el tiempo de espera para un órgano hepático es dos a tres años. En China, sin embargo, el tiempo de espera es de una a dos semanas.

Cuando se le preguntó por La Gran Época qué hay detrás de los órganos gratuitas, Wang dijo, "Creo [el PCC] muy probable que quiere eliminar a todos los practicantes de Falun Gong que aún permanecen en los campos de concentración tan pronto como sea posible “.

Datos Tipping Point

Ethan Gutmann dijo con respecto al pasado año, 2016-2017, que los dos informes se alude al principio de este artículo fueron significativas para el poder de los datos en bruto y se han traído en un “punto de inflexión global” en la aceptación de la sustracción de órganos. Haciendo referencia a los trasplantes de hígado de emergencia discutidos en la película, él dijo, “No hay un establo de personas dispuestas a matar.” No hay duda de que hay extirpación de órganos vivos pasando, él dijo.

Gutmann, que es también el autor de la 2014 libro “La Masacre,”Señalaron que ambos habían recibido informes riguroso escrutinio por investigadores de la CECC. Después de dedicar dos meses comprobación sobre las fuentes, los investigadores CECC los documentos autenticados, Gutmann, que dijo era una prueba de su validez.

la extracción de órganos forzados en China ha ganado amplia aceptación en el último año, Gutmann dijo. Las organizaciones de derechos humanos Freedom House y el informe de Amnistía Internacional en ello ahora, e incluso el New York Times, que se había ignorado el problema para más de una década, Ahora está informando sobre ella, agregó.
