On September 9th, 2007, some Falun Gong practitioners from Copenhagen went to the new square in the city centre to raise awareness about Falun Gong and the Chinese Communist Party's eight years of evil persecution of the practice.

Falun Gong practitioners demonstrating the exercises
Danish practitioners displayed banners clearly worded “Falun Gong is good”, “Let’s join hands and end the persecution immediately”, “Immediately stop the eight year persecution”. At the same time, pictures were displayed depicting Falun Gong's growing popularity around the world and how Falun Gong practitioners are being tortured in China. Against a background of traditional-style Chinese exercise music, some practitioners demonstrated the five Falun Gong exercises; some distributed leaflets to passers-by and the serene and peaceful scene drew the attention of people coming and going.
Attracted by the demonstration of the exercises, some tourists stopped to watch. Some took photos, some quietly followed the exercises and some were shocked at the pictures showing the persecution.
Stephen, a western practitioner and his Chinese wife, together with their baby son born a week ago, were part of the group of practitioners who came to thee square. While the wife was quietly demonstrating the practice, Stephen talked to people about Falun Gong and about the persecution happening right now in mainland China. Many passers-by listened quietly. It is inconceivable for people that such a persecution is so cruel. It is beyond belief why democratic governments in the west keep silent to this and allowed the persecution to last until now. Many people said sadly, “This is too horrible”.
After learning the facts about how the CCP persecutes Falun Gong, a Swedish couple passing by asked for the telephone numbers of practitioners in the place where they lived, hoping they could learn more information about the practice.
After looking at the picture in which Gao Rongrong, Falun Gong practitioner who was disfigured by police, a western old man, tears in his eyes, choked with sobs and pulled a practitioner’s hand asking, “What is this?” “Please tell me the story about her”. He signed the petition against the persecution, hoping that he could get more information about innocent Falun Gong practitioners being persecuted. He asked the practitioner repeatedly, “What else can I do for them?”
When looking at the pictures of Falun Gong practitioners being persecuted in China a tourist from a pre-communist country in East Europe said, “I know, I know.” “I know that the Communist Party is very wicked. They do everything bad. I believe the persecution happening right now in mainland China. I believe that finally justice will win out over the evil and Chinese people will be getting better. ”
When learning what persecution Falun Gong practitioners have suffered from, a Danish elderly man said, “How is such a police state (the CCP) qualified to hold the Olympic Games? We should let more people around us, even the Queen, have the information and end the most evil persecution in human history.”
While looking at Falun Gong practitioners telling people about how their fellow practitioners are suffering from the persecution in mainland China, a young man from the former Soviet Union stood quietly, listening and waiting. After that, he walked forward expressing his sympathy to Falun Gong practitioners’ sufferings and hoping that this evil Communist regime would be destroyed as soon as possible.
After signing the petition, a tourist from Washington in the USA said to the practitioner, “I’ve understood you, I support you! Well done! Our country is democratic and has freedom. We know that Falun Gong is good! You should go to more schools telling people there about Falun Gong.”
When carefully reading leaflets, a university professor from Holland talked with practitioners pure-heartedly and raised his opinions and suggestions. From this talk, it could be felt that he somewhat understood the nature of the evil Communist Party. After listening to what the practitioners introduced, he tokk a copy of the Epoch Times newspaper's editorial, the “Nine Commentaries on the Communist Party”.
Among tourists, there were those who come from mainland China. Many dared not accept leaflets. Even so, many people quietly listened to the explanation by practitioners about how quickly Falun Gong is spreading in all over the world and the CCP's lies. Some braved their worries and came forward to look at the pictures carefully, some silently filmed the scene with their cameras and some quietly accepted the leaflets the practitioners gave them.
This is a common sight during these eight years of the persecution. Practitioners will not stop disclosing the bestial crimes committed by the CCP if it does not stop persecuting Falun Gong.
