  1. For the leaders of the world. I want to know. What do you think about the biggest issue of the history about the persecution of HUMAN CRIME in china like FALUN GONG, Genocide, ilegal labour, organ harvesting etc. The number of VICTIMS already MILLIONS.Since 1999. It has been 15 years. And it is still happening right now.
