April 28, 2014 | By Xin Zi, a Minghui correspondent in Ottawa and Zhang Yun in Toronto, Canada

(Minghui.org) “It [The persecution] should never have started and it has been going on for 15 years. You all know I am convinced that it is the turning point, now even the government of China cannot continue to do this to its own people. I am sure this [cannot continue], and when it stops it’s going to be because of the efforts of many, many thousands of people including yourselves.”

“I thank you all for coming and it is an honor to be here protesting against the party state in China.” Mr. David Kilgour, a Canadian diplomat and subject matter expert on the issue of organ harvesting in China, spoke at an April 25, 2014 rally in front of the Chinese embassy in Ottawa, Canada.
