On Saturday the 13th of May on SNP square in Bratislava, Falun Gong practitioners held an activity to celebrate the 14th anniversary of the introduction of Falun Gong to the public. Falun Gong was first made public by Master Li Hongzhi in Changchun City, China on May the 13th 1992. In the same year, the China Qigong Scientific Research Association, after a thorough study of the practice, fully acknowledged the exercises, the principles, and the efficacy of Falun Gong. It accepted Falun Gong as one of the best Qigong schools and also offered much help and support in promoting Falun Gong.
From May the 13th 1992 to December the 21st 1994, invited by the local Qigong Scientific Research Associations all around China, Mr. Li Hongzhi held fifty six seminars, lecturing on the principles and teaching the exercises. Each seminar was about nine days in length, and tens of thousands of students attended them.
This peaceful time period of spreading of Falun Gong abruptly ended in 1999, when Jiang Zemin, Chinese Communist Party (CCP) leader at that time, banned Falun Gong and started those who practise it. By 2006, there have been over 2,600 documented deaths due to this persecution and more and more atrocities continue to come to light. Lately the world was shocked by the information about the existence of concentration camps, where Falun Gong practitioners are held and their internal organs are used for transplantations.
|People came to find out more about Falun Gong and many signed a petition calling for an end to the persecution|
Passers by learned the history of Falun Gong and the facts about the persecution. Some of them signed a petition against the concentration camps and calling for an end to the persecution of Falun Gong in China.
The children were also happy, because the organisers passed out balloons of various colours to them. A cameraman from the Slovak TV came to film the event for the evening news.
