International human rights lawyers are calling for a boycott of the 2008 Beijing Olympics over claims China kills Falun Gong practitioners to harvest their organs.

New Zealand human rights lawyer Richard MacLeod says next year's Olympic Games are a prime opportunity for the world to take a stand.

He says New Zealander's needs to take a lesson from the 1936 Berlin Olympics.

MacLeod says the world stood by and allowed those Olympics to take place when the world already knew about Nazi practices and we can't let the same thing happen with China.
