Finland: Nordic Falun Gong Practitioners Celebrate the 8th Anniversary of World Falun Gong Day in Helsinki

On May 13th, 2007, four Nordic countries and a group of Russian Falun Gong practitioners celebrated World Falun Gong Day in Helsinki with practitioners all over the world. They hung the banner reading “Falun Dafa day” on the pedestrian street in the city centre.

On May 13th, 1992, Master Li Hongzhi introduced Falun Gong to the public in Changchun, China. There are practitioners in over eighty countries practising Falun Gong; the book Zhuan Falun has been translated into more than thirty languages.

A Peruvian mother and daughter were very interested in Falun Gong and happy to learn about the exercise site address in Helsinki. They signed the petition to express their support.

Sunny, a Chinese student in Helsinki, said that she received a message that yesterday her mother had finally seen her father at the brain-washing centre where her father is detained. Her father is still under detention. Sunny added that, she must rescue her father and stop this persecution of Falun Gong.

A Finnish lady stopped to watch for a long time, she said to practitioners that, she could feel the peaceful and merciful energy field there and she will come to learn the practice.

Mr Li from Norway started practicing Falun Gong from 1997. He and his wife were persecuted and sent to a labour camp and prison illegally after the CCP launched the persecution of Falun Gong in 1999. They were then rescued to Norway by the UN. When being asked the reason why he can persist in practising Falun Gong without giving up under various pressure of being tortured, brain-washed, and threatened, he answered that it is just because of his strong wish to return to his original and true self. "I firmly believe that the principles of Falun Dafa can allow me return to my true self. It was this faith that enabled me to pass through this persecution, and nothing can stop me".

Sunny said during her interview, "I followed my mother to practise Falun Gong in Wuhan in 1996. From then on, I knew how to be a good child. All my classmates admired my good and harmonious family. I can hardly feel any pressure in this cultivation family, and I feel happy. I am always a good student. However, since the CCP launched the persecution of Falun Gong in 1999, I lost this happy family; my parents were persecuted continuously. It was on March 20th, my father was again kidnapped. I’m now with the practitioners all over the world trying my best to rescue my father and stop this persecution.
