To mark the fifth anniversary of the Jiang regime’s persecution of Falun Gong, on July the 20th, Falun Gong practitioners in Cambridge organised a week-long anti-torture poster exhibition entitled “Persecution Meets Principle” in a local library. On the Friday evening, practitioners held a candlelight vigil in the city centre to commemorate Falun Gong practitioners who lost their lives in the Jiang regime’s persecution. They also organised a petition activity to “Bring Jiang to Justice” in front of the local government building on Saturday. Many people learned the facts about Falun Gong and the brutal persecution of Falun Gong by the Jiang regime through this week-long activity.
The public library in Cambridge attracts many people every day. People who visited the anti-torture exhibition were all shocked and could not believe that in today’s world there is still a government carrying out such brutal torture. Streams of people came to sign our petition. During the Friday evening’s candlelight vigil, even before we set up our stand, a black lady came to sign our petition. She told us that she read our leaflet before and was always thinking of signing our petition to show her support and she got the chance today.
When we were practising meditation in the candlelight, many passers-bys were moved by the tranquil and solemn atmosphere and stopped to take a look or even take some pictures. When our activity was about to finish, a gentleman from Middle East had a long talk with a practitioner from Iran and immediately expressed his wish to read Zhuan Falun [the main text of Falun Gong]. During Saturday’s “Bring Jiang to Justice” petition activity, over forty Chinese students who came to Cambridge for the summer English course carefully read our poster displays. Falun Gong practitioners explained to them in great detail about the facts of Falun Gong.
