Two practitioners from the U.K., Edward and Weiguo, participated in the SOS Global Walk and successfully arrived in Brussels on September 13. They completed the 415-kilometre walk (about 258 miles) in 10 days from London to Brussels.
On the morning of September 12, these practitioners, joined by Belgian practitioners, walked to the city hall of Gent City and handed a letter and Falun Dafa materials to the mayor. The mayor's representative stated the Belgian government's support for Falun Gong practitioners' rights. She promised to present our situation to the Belgian premier and the Minister of Foreign Affairs. Later, a Dutch practitioner joined the walk.
On the morning of September 13, two British members of the European Parliament received us in person outside the parliament building. Both parliament members clearly expressed their support for us, and hoped they could help us further in depth. Another Belgian parliament member arranged a room in the Parliament for us to have a press conference. She clearly stated that she helped to host the meeting because she supports Mr. Li Hongzhi, a candidate for the 2001 Sakharov Prize and the efforts to rescue the Falun Gong practitioners who are persecuted in China.
The heroic undertaking of the two British practitioners has won general approval of Falun Gong from society. Many government officials and journalists have expressed great concern about the Falun Gong practitioners who are persecuted. They continue to look to help us to end the inhumane evil persecution. They also praised and expressed admiration for Falun Gong practitioners' keeping great compassion and tolerance under such dangerous circumstances.
