France: Practitioners Demonstrate the Falun Gong Exercises on World Human Rights Day

The 10th of December, 2007, was World Human Rights Day. Many people who advocate peace gathered in Human Right Square in Paris, expressing their longing and concern for human rights and peace. Falun Gong practitioners also went there to call on people to help stop the persecution of Falun Gong by the Chinese Communist Party (CCP).

Falun Gong practitioners demonstrate the exercises in Human Rights Square

The exercise demonstration and torture exhibition at the Human Rights Square attracted many people to watch and take photos. Quite a lot of people wanted to sign the petition. There was one French couple who came to the square with their ten year old daughter. This gentleman worked in China for one year and the whole family has just come back to France. After seeing the torture exhibition, they were nearly in tears. They said: “we never ever got the chance to hear about such a cruel persecution while we were in China. If we did not meet you here today, we would always be in the dark.”

Falun Gong, also known as Falun Dafa, is a cultivation practice guided by the characteristics of the universe Truthfulness, Benevolence, Forbearance. It was first introduced to the public by Master Li Hongzhi in 1992 in mainland China and soon spread widely. Till 1999, there was about nearly 100 million people doing this practice, as indicated by a government survey. However, fearing Falun Gong's wide spread popularity was overshadowing his own legacy, then CCP leader Jiang Zemin ordered the traditional Chinese practice eradicated out of his jealousy. By fully manipulating his position and power, Jiang started this brutal persecution of Falun Gong. The persecution has been going on in many aspects, from illegal arrest and labour camp detention to various ways of torture, even including organ harvesting from live Falun Gong practitioners, the CCP has tried absolutely everything they can to stop these people doing this practice. Up to today, there are over 3100 Falun Gong practitioners who are confirmed as having been persecuted to death.

Falun Gong practitioners believe that the whole dictatorial control history of the CCP in China has always been using lies and cheating methods to cover the truth and thus blind the population. The peaceful and rational appeal by Falun Gong practitioners aims to reveal the lies of the CCP to the people of the world and give them the opportunity to find out the truth for themselves.
