Our Mission

Artists Against Forced Organ Harvesting (AAFOH) believes that the ultimate aim of fine arts is to uphold human dignity and maintain universal values.  Forced organ harvesting, the removal of organs from a person without his or her prior free and voluntary consent, is a crime against humanity.

Falun Gong practitioners, the largest group of prisoners of conscience in China, are the main targets of this unethical practice.

Through the beauty and power of fine arts, AAFOH calls for awareness in international community so that together we can put an end to this heinous act.

 
 

Visual art has a unique power to move the human heart to kindness. You can use your talent to help to stop this forced organ harvesting.

About Forced Organ Harvesting

 

Where and how does it happen?

Evidence that has emerged since 2006 tells a terrible tale of murder and mutilation in China. Witnesses and Chinese physicians reveal that thousands of persons who practice Falun Gong are being killed for their organs, which are sold and transplanted at enormous profit. The kidneys, livers, and hearts are often sold on demand to overseas patients, who can afford them. 

That is, the prisoners of conscience are tissue typed and then killed once a matching recipient is found for their organs. 

The perpetrators are officials of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP), acting in cahoots with surgeons, prison authorities, and military officials. Victims are held in concentrations camps prior to dissection, after which the bodies’ remains are immediately cremated. 

There is no tradition of organ donation in China because Chinese believe that the body should be returned to the earth whole; therefore the fact that so many alleged organ "donations" claimed by the CCP raises a red flag.

Falun Gong supporters and human rights activists overseas immediately began investigating the allegations. Later, prominent Canadian human rights lawyers launched their own investigation. Then in July 2006, former Secretary of State for Asia Pacific David Kilgour and renowned Canadian human rights attorney David Matas, published their own 140-page report. It drew the regrettable conclusion that the allegations are true.

Why are Falun Dafa practitioners the main target of organ harvesting?

By way of introduction, please watch this short, award-winning documentary.

The systematic persecution of religious and spiritual groups is well documented in communist China. Throughout its history, Chinese Communist Party has periodically generated terror among the Chinese population to cement its power. It pits the majority against a vilified minority to maintain psychological control over citizens. It achieves this through propaganda, violence, and economic disenfranchisement. 

Beginning in 1999, the then-head-of-state Jiang Zemin, ordered the persecution of Falun Gong practitioners, which at the time numbered at least 100,000,000 in China. What ensued was the illegal arrest, secret imprisonment without trial, torture, rape, and death of countless Chinese citizens.

With a large population of healthy meditators in their prisons and labor camps, it was not long before the Chinese regime found a lucrative way to destroy the evidence of this brutal persecution—thus forced organ harvesting began.

What is Falun Dafa (Falun Gong)?

Falun Dafa, also known as Falun Gong, is an ancient Chinese spiritual discipline in the Buddhist tradition. Pronounced "Fah-loon Gong," it consists of moral teachings, a meditation, and five gentle exercises that are a truly unique and highly effective way to improve your health and energy levels.
