Universal Values and Engagement With Beijing

Twenty years ago, the party-state in Beijing launched a brutal campaign to eradicate Falun Gong. People everywhere should condemn the ongoing torture, killing, organ pillaging, and demand the release of all Falun Gong and other prisoners of conscience. Since seizing political power in 1949, the party-state has persecuted minorities mercilessly, instilling terror in the Chinese people.

The Uyghur Muslim community in Xinjiang is now similarly victimized. Uyghurs entering “re-education camps” are reportedly blood-tested for organ transplant purposes. One credible escapee reported that those given orange arm bands at the tests simply “disappeared.” World leaders must speak up; it cannot be “business as usual” with a regime that treats minorities or anyone so appallingly.
