(Minghui.org) A series of picture exhibitions in Kaohsiung, Taiwan is raising awareness about the state-sanctioned organ harvesting atrocities in China. Beginning in April 2015, the exhibitions have shown at various locations throughout Kaohsiung, including the historic sugar factory at Qiaotou (Taiwan Sugar Museum), The Xinzuoying Train Station, Pier-2 Art Center, and National Sun Yat-sen University
The recent 2-day exhibition at the Xinzuoying Train Station in Kaohsiung City was co-hosted by the Falun Dafa Association and the Taiwanese International Organ Transplant Care Association on July 25 and 26.
Thomas Chung, organizer of a music festival at Pier-2 Art Center
Thomas Chung is one of the organizers of a music festival at the Pier-2 Art Center in Kaohsiung. He visited the exhibition at the Xinzuoying Train Station and immediately signed the petition after he learned about the organ harvesting of prisoners of conscience in China. He also provided a free booth for the picture exhibition at the popular Pier-2 Art Center.
“I heard of the organ harvesting in China some time ago,” he said. “I thought it outrageous. How can the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) do this?”
Mr. Chung said that providing a free booth for the exhibition at Pier-2 Art Center was his way to show support, as he wants more people to learn about this atrocity.
Upon learning about the crime of removing organs from living Falun Gong practitioners and selling them to transplant patients, passersby condemned the CCP’s violation of human rights and signed the petition calling for an immediate end to the atrocity.
At the Xinzuoying Railway Station in Kaohsiung City, people sign a petition calling for an end to the mainland’s state-sanctioned forced organ harvesting.
Visitor response regarding the organ harvesting tends to be uniform – from shock, upset, to condemning the Communist Party.
Signing a petition to stop forced organ harvesting in China, at Pier-2 Art Center.
The Pier-2 Art Center attracts visitors from all over Taiwan. Many people who stopped at the Falun Gong informational booth said that that they were aware of the persecution of Falun Gong but few had heard about the crime of forced organ harvesting in mainland China. People were eager to sign a petition to stop the atrocity.

Carefully reading display boards detailing the Chinese regime’s crimes of forced organ harvesting
The Taiwan Sugar Museum, a historical sugar factory in Qiaotou, Kaohsiung, draws many visitors, especially on holidays and weekends.
A family of four said that they were Chinese government officials on an unguided tour of Taiwan. The mother read each display board closely and said that she had not heard about the organ harvesting issue before coming to Taiwan. She asked if she could do something to help those being persecuted. She signed the petition and asked her family to sign too.
A Taiwanese woman and her daughter viewed the exhibition at the sugar museum. The woman said that her mother-in-law was planning a trip to China for an organ transplant. After seeing the exhibition, she said that she would discourage her mother-in-law from going to China because it would result in the murder of an innocent person.
Passersby Eager to Sign Petition
Several college students visited the information booth. One commented, “Only Nazis and the Communist Party would do such terrible things.”
After they signed the petition, one young man said that he wanted to learn more about the organ harvesting issue so he could give the information to his parents who are doing business in China.
Dr. Huang from Hong Kong said that the world should pay attention to the organ harvesting issue, and should try to stop it.
