Humanity's Last stand - Forced Organ harvesting in China

How did all these happen? This talk reveals China’s large scale forced organ harvesting from prisoners of conscience, and provides the history of the investigation: how it began, caught the public attention, and has now become a prime focus internationally.

With the strong bi-partisan support, U.S. Congress unanimously passed resolution H.R. 343 in June 2016, expressing serious concerns about the on-going large scale forced organ harvesting from prisoners of conscience in China. European Congress passed a resolution in Dec. 2013, urging the Chinese government to stop this brutal practice. The governments of Israel, Spain, and Taiwan have made policies to prevent their citizens from going to China to receive organ transplants.

Transition from Zimbabwe hut to California assisting others

In September she will talk to us about her transition from living in a mud hut in Zimbabwe to being a business woman in Santa Rosa providing living assistance to others.

Martha was born in a traditional village in Southern Rhodesia (now Zimbabwe). She and her sisters and brothers were raised in a mud hut by their mother, a woman illiterate but wise. "Education is the key," Martha's mother told her children. Martha escaped the poverty and patriarchy of Zimbabwe through schooling, strength of will, and careful planning. After obtaining a nursing degree in Ireland, Martha made her way to America, where she fulfilled her dream of business ownership.
