On December 10, 2003, the International Human Rights Day, a human rights activity was held in the University of Minnesota. Falun Gong practitioners' display booth attracted many visitors.
During the dinner party, many human rights experts expressed their opinions. A practitioner introduced Falun Gong and the persecution it has encountered over the past four years in China. He also pointed out that "Truthfulness, Compassion, and Tolerance" are universal principles. Unfortunately, people who follow these principles are considered "against the law" in China and they are suffering severe persecution. He continued to point out that many people were tortured to death, and that nonetheless, people from different circles outside China are opposing this persecution. In addition, more and more people overseas have begun practicing Falun Gong.
In front of Falun Gong practitioners' display booth, some people asked for the situation about the persecution with great concern. Some people wrote letters on the spot to the prison where U.S. citizen, Falun Gong practitioner, Dr. Charles Li is currently unlawfully held. Some people signed postcards calling for the rescue of Charles Li. Some people even sat down to chat with practitioners while learning how to make paper lotus flowers. A Chinese student who is studying in the University of Minnesota carefully made a paper lotus flower. He said that he was very pleased to talk with practitioners.
