Hi all,

You are invited to a film screening of the Australian premier for the award-winning documentary, "Hard to Believe", which is about organ harvesting in China. It's being shown on twp nights, and will be followed by a panel discussion which will include CAVE member Wendy Rogers. There will also be a Q&A.

IT'S HAPPENED BEFORE: Governments killing their own citizens for their political or spiritual beliefs. But it's never happened like this.
Hard To Believe examines the issue of forced live organ harvesting from Chinese prisoners of conscience, and the response - or lack of it - around the world.

This documentary is extremely important for those involved in organ donation and transplantation, human rights, healthcare, ethics and the law. The credentials of the interviewed experts are impeccable. - Journal of Bioethical Inquiry
