At the beginning of May 2006, Falun Gong practitioners held the Truthfulness, Compassion, Forbearance International Art Exhibition in Vytautas University, Kaunas city in Lithuania. Several Lithuanian political heavyweights attended the art exhibition and condemned the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) for its persecution of Falun Gong practitioners.
After viewing the exhibited works, Mr. Vytautas Landsbergis, the first Lithuanian President and a current member of the European Parliament, stated: “The communist system, in essence, is against human ideology and is an evil to devastate human nature, the foundation on which humans live. This kind of system brings tyranny and causes millions of innocent people to be slaughtered. Humans should bestow kindness on others, but communism was never the soil to breed kindness.”

Mr. Pouweilous Yacunix, a member of the Lithuanian Parliament, said, “The artistic works on display are very touching. Particularly those who underwent the same experiences are almost moved to tears.”
Mr. Andrius Kubilius, chair of the Lithuanian Parliament dominated by the opposition party, expressed that Lithuanian people had personally experienced communist tyranny. After its independence, Lithuania started its new life and became a member of the peaceful international community and of the EU. “A resolution passed by the European Commission condemning communist totalitarianism has equated crimes committed by the communist system with fascist atrocities. We think that the international community should bring the communist system to justice, just as the Nuremberg Court did to the Nazis,” he stated.

The “Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance” International Art Exhibition held in Vytautas University was held at the same time as the 13th Meeting of the Lithuanian Union of Political Prisoners and Deportees held in the same university. Invited by the Lithuanian Union, a representative of the New Tang Dynasty TV in Latvia delivered a speech at the meeting. In his speech he introduced to those present the book Nine Commentaries on the Communist Party, which has triggered over ten million people in China to quit the CCP.
The representative also discussed the CCP’s recently exposed atrocities against Falun Gong practitioners, whose organs were harvested when they are still alive. His statements caused extensive concern among the audience. On that day, over 600 people present at the meeting also attended the Truthfulness, Compassion, Forbearance International Art Exhibition. Falun Gong practitioners’ perseverance and unyielding determination depicted in the artistic works earned positive feedback and appreciation among the viewers.
