Austria: As the Persecution Enters its Fifth Year, Practitioners hold Big Parade in Vienna

Dafa practitioners from various places in Austria and Slovakia held an SOS parade in Vienna. The parade passed through scenic spots where tourists gathered in Wiener Staatsoper, Hofburg, Heldenplatz and Stephanskirche. A lot of passersby read the characters on the banners and asked for materials one after another to understand more. There were even some Chinese tourists surprised to see so many Falun Gong practitioners, and banners such as “Global trial against Jiang”. When people in the parade arrived at Stephanskirche, various activities took place in the city centre, including Falun Gong exercise demonstrations, a musical performance and a Chinese calligraphy performance.

Six Falun Gong practitioners wearing traditional Chinese costumes demonstrated Falun Gong exercises. The neat, tidy, and peaceful demonstration attracted over 100 people’s attention and many tourists took photos. This was accompanied by a voiceover, which made many people wonder how such a peaceful cultivation practice could be persecuted so severely. Those who understood the truth had their names signed one after another on the petition to release Falun Gong practitioner, Xiong Wei, and gave their wishes to fellow practitioners to be successful. It suddenly rained for a couple of minutes in the afternoon. One passerby who expressed his support for us took off his long scarf without hesitation and covered up those signature letters and truth materials regardless of getting wet himself. One Chinese person from the Mainland said that many people in China in their hearts understood Falun Gong practitioners are innocent and some policemen who he knows of are not willing to do wrongdoing and persecute Falun Gong practitioners.

A band composed of Austrian Dafa practitioners held an outdoor concert in Stephanskirche. Their original material included songs talk about the persecution in China and reveal the truth to the listener.
