  • Chris Chappell here.

  • On this episode of China Uncensored,

  • I thought I'd get out of New York City.

  • Come down to Washington DC, the nation's capitol,

  • For one.

  • Very.

  • Important reason.

  • Another thing happening in DC today:

  • A rally marking 17 years since the Chinese Communist Party

  • began its brutal persecution of the Falun Gong

  • a popular meditation practice.

  • But like most people in the country right now,

  • I’m finding it hard to stay focused when...

  • OH MAN IS THAT A PIKACHU?!

  • But 20 minutes later,

  • my phone was almost out of battery,

  • so I decided to do the next best thing

  • check out this rally.

  • The house of representatives has formally recognized

  • the persecution of Falun Gong practitioners by the Communist Chinese regime.

  • We have sent a message loud and clear

  • to the Chinese Communist Party

  • that we call on China to immediately stop

  • its inhumane and unethical practice of organ harvesting.

  • So, it’s been a big year for Falun Gong.

  • After a decade knowing that practitioners in China

  • were being killed en masse for their organs,

  • people are finally talking about it.

  • What do you think of the organ harvesting of Falun Gong practitioners?

  • I had no idea until I talked to one of the gentlemen with it earlier.

  • I had never heard of Falun Dafa in my life.

  • I didn't know this was going on in China.

  • So this has been like a real education thing, so I want to check out.

  • This is what happens when people aren’t watching enough China Uncensored.

  • But even if it isn’t common knowledge,

  • the tide is changing.

  • Earlier this year,

  • a documentary about organ harvesting, Human Harvest,

  • wins a prestigious Peabody Award.

  • Then, The US House of Representatives

  • passes a resolution condemning organ harvesting.

  • Then, this report comes out.

  • It contains 680 pages of evidence that the Chinese regime

  • has been murdering prisoners of conscience for their organs.

  • Maybe even more than a million.

  • And inside China,

  • things have been changing as well.

  • Because with all this international attention,

  • guess who doesn’t wanted to be blamed for persecuting Falun Gong?

  • Chinese leader Xi Jinping.

  • And Xi’s whole anti-corruption campaign right now

  • just happens to be targeting his political rivals,

  • who just happen to be the people

  • who followed former Chinese leader and mummified toad,

  • Jiang Zemin to persecute Falun Gong.

  • So it’s convenient that China’s organ transplant official

  • called out Jiang’s former right hand man,

  • and live-action Thwomp, Zhou Yongkang,

  • as thebig tigerresponsible for organ harvesting from prisoners.

  • Which of course makes Xi’s people look blameless.

  • And Xi’s anti-corruption campaign

  • has already arrested a huge number of officials,

  • including more than 150 with the rank of vice-minister or higher,

  • many with ties to Jiang Zemin.

  • Most recently, reports say that Jiang’s son has been put under house arrest.

  • And it looks like China’s propaganda chief,

  • who is Jiang’s highest ally still in power,

  • may be targeted next.

  • And Xi’s anti-corruption investigators just announced

  • they were looking into the 610 Office,

  • the organization that Jiang created to persecute Falun Gong.

  • It seems like Xi Jinping is truly out, to catchem all.

  • Do you think if you made,

  • held this rally at a Pokemon gym,

  • that a lot of people would show up.

  • Thanks for watching this episode of China Uncensored.

  • Once again I’m your host Chris Chappell, see you next time.
