All are welcome to attend this event to hear Anastasia Lin, Miss World Canada 2016, actress, and human rights activist, who will speak about her survival and resistance against human rights crimes perpetrated by China’s statist regime: systematic brainwashing, unlawful imprisonment and organ harvesting of religious/political dissidents, and intimidation and liquidation of those who protest against these evils. Food will be provided at the event, as coordinated by Benjamin Rush Institute student leaders.
Ms. Lin appeared in The Bleeding Edge, a film about China’s human organs market.

POST-EVENT SUMMARY: Ms. Anastasia Lin gave a very powerful and dramatic presentation to 20 attendees.
I was pleased with how engaged students were with questions after the event. Many had no idea of the medical atrocities occurring in China. This event exceeded my expectations. Ms. Lin did a tremendous job delivering a captivating narrative. My only small comment, and one which did not adversely affect her presentation, is that healthcare is not really her message per se. Rather, anti-communisim/pro-freedom was the crux of her message. She speaks more towards the dystopian extreme end of total government control of a healthcare system. She knows how to emotionally capture a crowd and gave a phenomenal presentation. I would highly recommend her to another chapter.” ~Jacob Chevlen, OUHCOM-Dublin BRI chapter president
Ms. Lin’s presentation started by showing part of an experimental movie in which she played a role. The movie centered around a human heart that was harvested against the will a of a political prisoner. She went from there to discuss what life was like growing up in China after the cultural revolution, and the grim details of the organ transplant and harvesting industry there.
“This is the single best speaker that’s ever come to our campus.” ~Christina Veite, OMS-II
