Program Title: WINGS #42-16 The Gentle Plaintiffs
Description: In 1999, Chinese leader Jiang Zemin implemented a program to eliminate the practice of Falun Gong from the country. This persecution developed into a program of mass arrests, "re-education" through torture, executions and widespread allegations of organ harvesting for the medical market. A change in China's courts has allowed those who suffered to file complaints, and many are doing so. Documentary.
