On December 13th, 2007, Ukrainian Falun Gong practitioners held a protest at the Chinese Embassy urging the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) to stop its eight year persecution of Falun Gong. Practitioners distributed truth material and newspapers to tell the people that in China Falun Gong practitioners had been illegally thrown into labour camps, mental hospitals and even been tortured to death and that the CCP’s purpose was to force them to give up their belief.
Though it was held in light snowy conditions the practitioners’ protest was not affected. In order to bring this most horrible genocide to an end and to stop the CCP from spreading rumours to overseas countries. Ukrainian practitioners kept protesting at the Chinese Embassy everyday for the last one and half years. Bad weather could not stop them. They displayed large banners in front of the Embassy to expose to the Ukrainian people the CCP persecution of Falun Gong and their crime of harvesting organs from live Falun Gong practitioners for profit.
In Ukraine, the CCP often spread rumours against Falun Gong through its Embassy. At a press conference (staged by the CCP perhaps) held in Kiev at the end of November, some organisation tried to misguide some Ukrainians to hate Falun Gong, but out of their expectation, some attendees of the conference had known the truth of Falun Gong before. A philosophy professor Anatoli Kolodniy said at the conference that ‘three years ago, a delegation from China’s academy came to Kiev and they wanted to cooperate with us, but their premise was that we had to support the CCP fight against Falun Gong. Our answer to them was “our opinion of Falun Gong is different from yours and we do not have any common language on this issue. There is international standard over this issue (of human rights and beliefs), you should abide by it as well”.’
No matter which way the CCP is used in Ukraine to spread rumours, it is hard for them to cheat clear-minded people. The persecution has lasted for eight years, all the negative information about Falun Gong was from the media controlled by the CCP. In today’s world, Falun Dafa is welcomed in over eighty countries and in this year’s report of one hundred live geniuses’ in the world published by a UK consultation company Creator Synectics, the founder of Falun Gong is at the top of the Chinese contingent. Mr. Li received a large amount of rewards throughout the world and until now government institutions, parliament members and organisations from many countries in the world have awarded Falun Gong and its founder with over 2000 rewards and acknowledgements.
Regardless of nationality, race or age, as long as you cultivate continuously and with a heart full of goodness, you will benefit. Falun Gong has been understood and treasured by more and more people world wide.
