The last time Falun Gong handed a letter of protest to the Chinese consulate they were thrown out.

Yesterday, they were not; but they did not get to meet the person in charge.

Nevertheless, Roland Odar read out Falun Gong’s letter of protest against China’s persecution of Falun Gong practitioners.

Furthermore, he and Tony Lingefors started their 48-hour-long hunger-strike.

“We are doing it, amongst other reasons, to sympathize with the 130 Falun Gong practitioners who have been hunger-striking for the past 29 days in a labour camp in China,” says Roland Odar.
