PRACTITIONERS of Chinese spiritual mediation Falun Gong have lined the streets of Guyra to protest against live organ harvesting.

Seen as a threat to the Communist Party of China, the group claims the practitioners were arrested for their organs.

Falun Gong protester Lichen Zhang said that practitioners have their blood tested in their homes and are put on a registry.

“Since people began to practice Falun Gong, more than 1.5 million operations have been done, over a million people have been killed for their organs,” she said.

“You can have a liver within two weeks, a heart within weeks, the army and state hospitals are involved, it’s a systematic operation because they distribute people wherever required.”
