VANCOUVER (NEWS1130) - Nearly 40 anti-Chinese government protestors took to the Vancouver Art Gallery steps Wednesday afternoon.

One of the speakers there claims the Olympics are a cover up for China's human rights abuses.

"Let me make one point very clear. We are not here because we hate Chinese people. As a matter of fact, we love Chinese people. I want that to be clear."

One of the protestors says the Chinese government has arrested thousands of Falun Gong members to use them as unwilling human organ donors. A handful of the protestors at the Art Gallery marched to the Chinese Consulate on Granville St. later in the afternoon.
