Practitioners held a candlelight vigil and a rally to raise awareness of the persecution of Falun Gong in China, which has entered its seventeenth year. A former Chinese judge spoke out in support of practitioners' efforts, and condemned the communist regime in China for its torture and killing of practitioners for their organs. A Legislative Assembly candidate said that the persecution is bound to fail.
It is hard to believe that the Chinese Communist Party has been persecuting Falun Gong for 17 years. To raise awareness of this terrible reality, practitioners around the world offer information, answer questions, and collect signatures on petitions condemning the persecution and forced organ harvesting. In the past week, people in England, Denmark, Sweden, Spain, Austria, and Slovakia have had a chance to learn more about Falun Gong and sign a petition to help support it.
Falun Gong practitioners in Melbourne and Brisbane recently held various public events marking 17 years of the brutal persecution in China and calling for more support to end the atrocities. One rally participant who has practiced the meditation since about the time the persecution began said, “What is happening in China is related to the foundation of mankind and it involves every one of us.”
Each year around July 20, practitioners around the world hold events to let the public know about the ongoing persecution of Falun Gong in China. This report covers activities in Greece, Switzerland, Russia, the Czech Republic, Norway, Italy, Belgium, and Ireland.
Victims of the persecution spoke at various events around the United States, calling for an end to the persecution of Falun Gong, and obtained strong support from people of all walks of life.
More than 200 practitioners gathered in Nagpur for an experience sharing conference, followed by a march, candlelight vigil, and other public events to raise awareness of the persecution in China.
