In 2006, allegations were raised of the brutal persecution of Falun Gong, a peaceful spiritual discipline that follows the principles of truthfulness, compassion and tolerance whose adherents are subjected to the industrialized practice of organ harvesting throughout China’s military and civilian hospital systems.

Tax weapons have been often used to discriminate against religious and spiritual minorities. This is becoming a global problem, and one the human rights community should be aware of.

In France, in 1996 a Parliamentary Commission of Inquiry established a blacklist of spiritual groups classified as “cults” (in French, sectes). 172 groups were thus criminalized, and a policy of repression was instituted against these spiritual movements.

Freedom of Expression Policy Toward Tamils History Posts Removal and Restriction, on Facebook, Google, Youtube and other social medias.

The Internet with Social Media has become “one of the most powerful instruments of the 21st century for increasing transparency in the conduct of the powerful, access to information, and for facilitating active citizen participation in building democratic societies.” The formation of an inclusive information society requires universal ability to access and contribute information, ideas, and knowledge so citizens can participate in discussions on public affairs and be part of the decision-making process. The Internet offers a new opportunity for developing policies on proactive transparency and dissemination of information and ideas of all kinds. Its speed, decentralization, and low cost allow both the State and private parties to disseminate information without barriers of borders, opportunity, or bureaucracy that once hampered such circulation

Escalation of Human Rights Violations in the 21st century: Finding solutions to help combat crimes against humanity

Escalation of Human Rights Violations in the 21st century: Finding solutions to help combat crimes against humanity

We have learned that egregious crimes such as forced organ harvesting from living Falun Gong practitioners has occurred for over two decades in the People’s Republic of China. Irrefutable evidence has been gathered and led to a unanimous judgement. The international community appears to be overwhelmed in the handling of crimes against humanity to the extent that the values of our civilization are at stake. Humankind has to decide if it accepts or rejects the killing of human beings for forced organ harvesting or other exploitations.
