Finland: Falun Gong Practitioners Protest against the CCP's Persecution of Falun Gong

On December 10th, 2007, International Human Rights Day, Falun Gong practitioners from Helsinki gathered outside the Chinese Embassy to protest against the Chinese Communist Party’s genocide of Falun Gong during the past eight years. In late afternoon, they held a candle-light vigil to mourn for Falun Gong practitioners who have been murdered through the persecution.

Other Falun Gong practitioners had been protesting against the CCP's persecution of Falun Gong and calling for an immediate stop to the persecution outside the Chinese Embassy on week days all the year round. Many people went there for visas for China learned from them the truth about Falun Gong and the CCP's atrocities against the practice. When recently a Falun Gong practitioner was asked by a news reporter from the Finnish MTV3 TV station when they would stop the protest, he answered that they will keep on doing so until the persecution stops.

It was already dark at about 4pm. During the candle light vigil the Falun Gong practitioners displayed images of those who died at the hands of the persecution, lit candles and put up a banner which read “Stop immediately the persecution of Falun Gong”. They conveyed to people their wishes that the CCP atrocities against Falun Gong could be brought to an end by joint effort of all the people.

Many people accepted flyers about the Falun Gong story from practitioners. Some youngsters asked why such terrible things were happening today. A man from Turkey said to a practitioner, “I know about the communist party. They always do bad things. You are doing very well.”
