COLLEGE STATION, Texas—A showing of the award-winning documentary “Harvested Alive” at Texas A&M University on Sept. 28 left audience members wanting to spread the word about atrocities taking place in China.

The film tells the story of a 10-year-long investigation by the World Organization to Investigate the Persecution of Falun Gong (WOIPFG) into the crimes of mass forced organ harvesting in China.

Reports by former Canadian Secretary of State (Asia-Pacific) David Kilgour, international human rights lawyer David Matas, and investigative journalist Ethan Gutmann, as well as by WOIPFG, have previously marshalled the evidence showing that there has been mass killing of prisoners of conscience to supply China’s transplantation industry with organs, starting soon after the Chinese regime’s persecution of Falun Gong began in July 1999.

The order to pillage the organs of Falun Gong practitioners came from the top down. The film quotes former Politburo member Bo Xilai as saying that then-Communist Party leader Jiang Zemin had “issued the order of live organ harvesting from Falun Gong practitioners.”

“Harvested Alive” also presents this evidence, but it does so to make the case that the organ harvesting in China is a state-directed crime.

As director Jun Li told The Epoch Times in a previous interview, “These are not doctors acting in their individual capacity, but the entire state apparatus that is committing this heinous crime.”

Organized by the university chapter of Amnesty International, the showing of the award-winning film—which in January won Hollywood International Independent Documentary awards in the categories of director and foreign documentary feature—had created some buzz on campus.
