By a Swedish practitioner
On June the 4th Falun Gong practitioners from the cities of Malmo and Lund in southern Sweden, along with practitioners from Copenhagen in Denmark, went to Medan square in Lund to hold an anti-torture exhibition. Before the scheduled activity started, it was cloudy and raining. Practitioners set up display boards and about twenty minutes later, the sun came out.
Lund is a small university city in southern Sweden with a long and glorious history. This was the first time practitioners held an anti-torture exhibition there. A short while after the activity started, a Chinese student came over, viewed our display boards, and asked questions with interest. Like many other people from Mainland China, he did not know anything about the six-year persecution of Falun Gong. He asked many questions and took a Video-CDs and “Nine Commentaries on the Communist Party”. He had left his address and hoped practitioners could send him the Falun Gong exercise Video-CDs. Just before leaving he said, “I have been here for over a year. I heard there were Falun Gong practitioners in Malmo. I went there several times but didn’t find them. I am so happy to meet you here today.” He originally had a plan for a picnic with his friends but cancelled the plan after he heard the weather forecast which indicated heavy rain. Therefore, he went to the square and found Falun Gong.
During the activity, many people came over to ask what Falun Gong is and why practitioners in China are suffering such terrible human rights abuses. After hearing the truth, people signed their names without hesitation on our petition form calling for an end to the persecution.
