Awareness of one of the gravest—yet little known—mass atrocities taking place in the world came to Minnesota recently, after the state senate put up for vote, and passed, a resolution condemning the organ harvesting of Falun Gong practitioners in China.
“Some of you may not know about Falun Gong,” said Senator Alice Johnson at the senate floor vote on May 20. “It’s a Chinese spiritual practice, a system for improving mind and body rooted in thousands of years of traditional culture. The core of Falun Gong’s teachings are the values of truthfulness, compassion, and tolerance.”
“Who could not accept that?” she added.
