On July 19th 2004, practitioners from Sweden, Denmark, Norway and Finland gathered in the city centre of Stockholm to hold a torture exhibition and Falun Dafa photo display between 10am and 4pm. Practitioners also demonstrated the Falun Gong exercises in the park between the two exhibitions.
During the exhibition, practitioners demonstrated a variety of torture methods used to persecute Falun Gong practitioners, including the tiger bench, the small cage, bamboo stick torture, hanging, and burning with a hot iron. Many people stopped to have a close look, and many people asked, ‘Is this real?’. Some of them were outraged when they saw policemen fling their fists towards practitioners. After learning that this was really happening in China right now, they were all very shocked. Some shook their heads, some asked more detailed questions and consequently came to the petition desk and solemnly wrote their names to appeal for the end of the persecution of Falun Gong.
Along with western practitioners on hand to explain what was going on, answer people’s questions and hand out leaflets, lots of people came to know the truth.
The day after the event, which exactly five years since the beginning of the persecution, four of the biggest newspapers in Sweden including the Svenska Dagbladet, Dagens Nyheter and the Metro published articles regarding these events. Though the Jiang Regime has used various methods to persecute Falun Gong, the truth of Dafa has spread around the world and the Jiang Regime’s lies are no longer believable.
