Falun Dafa practitioners in Slovakia held activities in Piešťany on September 4, 2021, to introduce the practice of Falun Dafa and expose the persecution of the practice in China. Piešťany is located in the western part of Slovakia and is renowned for having the biggest and best spa in the country. Tourists from around the world come to enjoy the beautiful scenery of the area.
Practitioners set up an information booth near a bridge, where they demonstrated the exercises, distributed truth-clarification flyers and collected signatures on a petition to end the persecution. They told people about the Chinese Communist Party’s (CCP) ongoing 22-year-long persecution of practitioners who believe in Dafa’s principles of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance. Many people were shocked to learn how the CCP harvests organs from Falun Dafa practitioners while they are alive and sells them for huge profit for organ transplants.
After learning of the extent of these atrocities, people signed the petition and showed support for practitioners' peacefully resisting the persecution. They expressed hope that the persecution will end soon.

One woman told practitioners that she was very happy to see them exposing the CCP’s crimes. She wished practitioners well and said she hopes the persecution will end soon.
A young man stopped and watched as practitioners demonstrated the exercises. He followed their movements as they did the second exercise. Afterwards, he brought his family over and they all signed the petition.
Another young man asked to learn the five sets of Falun Dafa exercises. He followed practitioners’ movements attentively and said that he wanted to learn more about Falun Dafa. A practitioner gave him information so he could go online and learn more about the practice. He also told him where he could attend group practice.
A tourist from the Czech Republic said he that he was aware of the CCP’s evil nature, but he’d never heard about the 22-year persecution of Falun Dafa. After he learned more, he signed the petition.
An elderly German couple carefully read a truth-clarification flyer in German. They signed the petition to end the persecution of Falun Dafa.
Another elderly lady stated with grief and indignation, “Please believe me when I say that I am very sympathetic towards those being persecuted by the CCP!”
A middle-aged woman and her daughter and grandmother stopped and watched practitioners demonstrating the exercises. They listened as a practitioner told them about the persecution and said that it is not fair for those who believe in the principles of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance, to be persecuted. After signing the petition, the grandmother gave practitioners a thumbs-up and said, “I support you! I hope that Falun Dafa practitioners are all well!”
After passing by the information booth and learning about forced live organ harvesting, an elderly man was deeply moved. He said that he once heard about forced live organ harvesting but did not know how brutal it actually was. His wife wanted to know more about Falun Dafa and both of them signed the petition. They said they hope that by signing it, they can help end the suffering and the injustice practitioners in China are going through. They further stated that Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance are universal values that can uplift and change mankind’s morals for the better.
A young couple said that many values have been distorted and they hope this can be corrected. They felt that the principles of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance can help bring back mankind’s true, traditional values. They also said that they supported Falun Dafa practitioners in ending the persecution.
