Investigative journalist Ethan Gutmann

Investigative journalist Ethan Gutmann is presenting the award-winning documentary film ‘Hard to Believe’ and will participate in a Q&A session afterwards.

Ethan Gutmann, is visiting Banbury on 16 September, a prominent campaigner in revealing the shocking truth about the Chinese trade in human organs for transplantation, which has become a multi-million pound industry, largely run by the Chinese military.

After years of investigation Gutmann and others have discovered that China is killing political prisoners in order to offer transplant organs on demand in a global trade. The donors are presumed to be criminals sentenced to death but are in fact prisoners of conscience, whose deaths are timed so that operations can be booked in advance as a convenience to the recipient and the transplant team.

Ethan Gutmann says,

“I was in China and witnessed some of the first arrests of Falun Gong practitioners in Beijing after China’s government first began its crackdown of the spiritual practice. It was then, seven years ago, that I began my research. I was initially skeptical about allegations of organ harvesting, until I spoke to witnesses from Chinese labour camps and learnt the dreadful truth.”

Hard to Believe

The organiser, Mary Evans Young, says,

“This film is not gory and I’m sure it will be of wide interest because it raises so many issues – ethical, medical, political and of human rights.”

HARD TO BELIEVE will be screened at the Cornhill Centre, Castle St, Banbury on Friday September 16. The supper and film evening with Q & A is being organised by Banbury Labour Party and is open to anyone, including non-members.

A ploughman’s supper will be served and is included in the ticket price of £10.

Food at 7pm, film begins at 7.30 and lasts one hour.

Booking is essential. Contact Jane Rogers on 01295 254352, or 07740 514618.  Email
