“I’m talking about organs being taken from prisoners of conscience, meaning citizens who have not done anything wrong but to speak their mind and believe what they believe in. It’s like innocent citizens being killed for their organs and their body parts sold for profits. It’s happening and people need to pay attention to it,” – Anastasia Lin, CBC, Dec 15 2016
Anastasia Lin was denied entry into China because of her outspoken criticism of China’s abuses against human rights. She, along with some other special guests, will be in attendance to highlight Canada’s outspoken advocacy for international human rights.
