The Media's Silence on the Sujiatun Death Camp


By Gong Ping



Sujiatun Hospital (The Epoch Times)

On March 9, a Chinese journalist with inside information revealed to The Epoch Times that the Chinese communist regime has secretly extracted organs from living Falun Gong practitioners, murdered them and burned their bodies to destroy the evidence. A former employee at Sujiatun, who wishes to remain anonymous, has come forward and confirmed this news. Because her ex-husband was a surgeon who had extracted organs at the camp, she was able to disclose many details unknown to the general public.

She stated that since 2001, over 6,000 Falun Gong practitioners have been secretly detained in the Sujiatun Death Camp, and no one has come out alive. Among those 6,000, a significant number of them were killed so their hearts, kidneys, corneas and skin could be harvested. Afterwards, they were killed, and their bodies were destroyed. Many practitioners had their organs removed while still alive. Due to limited supplies of anesthetics, the practitioners were given only small doses during the operations. After the operations, the victims, some still alive, some dead, were thrown into an incinerator, which was converted from a boiler. In the furnace, their remains mixed with charcoal and were then disposed of as ash.

There are still approximately 2,000 Falun Gong practitioners being secretly detained in the hospital. The witness is worried that the Chinese communist regime will kill those who remain to destroy the evidence.

It's difficult even to think in the face of this horrendous act. Everyone is deeply shocked, from heaven all the way down to earth. The cruelty of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) exceeds what any normal, decent person could imagine. A lot of media, however, have remained abnormally silent. They claim they need more evidence.

Two people have taken tremendous risks to disclose this news, but the media is turning a blind eye with the excuse that "more evidence is needed." Is this being responsible? What could be more imperative than stopping a horror of this nature? What could be more important than reporting news that could rescue thousands of innocent lives?

What evidence do the media really need? Why can't the countless details revealed by the former employee be counted as evidence? Will the media only take action after the CCP has killed all the people in the death camp and placed their remains in front of them?

Once the Chinese people have gained their freedom from the CCP, I wonder if those media that did not report on the camp will have the courage to admit that they chose to remain silent and stand on the side of evil.

Those media that have kept silent must understand: The CCP is an organization that is capable of committing any manner of evil crimes. It is good at hiding its crimes and destroying the evidence. Even the notorious Masanjia labor camp was disguised as a treatment center, to which the CCP then invited international media for visits. Even when the SARS outbreak was already out of control, the CCP still claimed there was no SARS. Waiting for more evidence is no different than cooperating with the CCP in the execution of its crimes. Two weeks after the Sujiatun Death Camp was exposed, the CCP did not have any public responses, but several websites related to organ transplants were deleted. Does that indicate something?

The delay on reporting the death camp does not demonstrate the professionalism or reputation of those media involved. Any media that uses the excuse of waiting for more evidence is either extremely ignorant of the CCP's evil nature, or has forgotten its social and moral responsibility. The former employee said she hoped the matter would be exposed as quickly as possible to save the lives of the 2,000 who have not yet been killed. It is up the world's media to do this.

The real reason the media is reluctant to report on the death camp is because it has revealed the evil side of the CCP, a subject that many media consider forbidden territory. Many media are afraid the CCP would take revenge and discontinue the benefits they currently enjoy. They use the excuse that there is not enough evidence to fool themselves and to try to fool others. It keeps the media from having to upset the CCP.

If this incident had occurred in a country like North Korea, Cuba or Somalia, and if this incident had no connection with Falun Gong, the media definitely would not be as silent.

A correspondent from a large, overseas Chinese media outlet controlled by the CCP called a local press organizer to inquire about reportable news. After the correspondent understood that the content of the press release was about Sujiatun Death Camp, she immediately said that she could not report on it. Her reasoning had nothing to do with the issue of evidence.

After World War II, in the face of the Auschwitz Concentration Camp tragedy, the international community promised "Never Again." Today, there are again Nazi-like death camps. Once the Chinese people have gained their freedom from the CCP, I wonder if those media that did not report on the camp will have the courage to admit that they chose to remain silent and stand on the side of evil.
