Social work students at the University of Manitoba alarmed about forced organ harvesting in China organized a rally on the steps of the Legislative Building on Saturday.
The students want people to know that people are killed for the sake of removing their organs. They say westerners who need organs take advantage of the loose enforcement in the country.
Students who attended the rally say the victims in china do not have a voice.
"The government tries to demonize them,” Clistus Ekenna.“We think this is a human rights issue. It's a crime against humanity and it's time people start talking about this."
After a few speeches, students picked up signs and took to the streets to walk through downtown Winnipeg.
