Finland: Falun Gong Practitioners Raise Awareness about Falun Dafa in Helsinki

On September 6th, Falun Gong practitioners in Finland held an activity near Helsinki city centre, appealing to the general public to help to end the nine year long brutal persecution of Falun Gong by the Chinese Communist regime. Practitioners demonstrated the Falun Gong exercises, distributed leaflets about Falun Gong and collected signatures calling for an end to the persecution.

There were lots of people out walking and many of them were attracted by the Falun Gong activity. They came to see the Falun Gong exercise demonstration and read the display boards. Many people also signed the petition condemning the Chinese Communist regime’s persecution of Falun Gong and calling for an immediate end to this persecution. There were also warm cries of “Falun Gong! Falun Gong!” This was the friendly response by Finnish people to the persistent efforts by Falun Gong practitioners to tell the truth to the public for many years.

Ms Petra is an artist. After reading the display boards for a long time, she came to sign the petition condemning the persecution. She also carefully read the statements on the petition and told practitioners that she went to China in 1997 and saw many people practising Falun Gong there. She felt very sad about this brutal persecution.

There were two young fashionable students Maria and Julia. After listening to practitioner Xiao Wang telling them about the atrocity of harvesting organs from living Falun Gong practitioners in China, both of them said that they didn’t know that such terrible things were happening. This could only have occurred in a horror movie. They also said, "Please tell your friends in China who practise Falun Gong, come to Finland, it is free here. When they heard that the parents of Sunny, who is currently studying in Finland, are being illegally detained in a prison in Wuhan because they don’t want to give up practising Falun Gong, Maria and Julia said: you can speak out freely here. Please quickly rescue them to Finland. Here they can have their belief". Afterwards both signed the petition. They also enquired about the Falun Gong exercise site and said they want to learn Falun Gong.

Samuli is a high school student. When he came to the activity site, he took out a book from his bag and said to practitioners, "This is my textbook (one of the two books Finnish students have to study in the high school about Belief and Religion), there is a chapter introducing Falun Gong". From this book, he learned about Falun Gong and the persecution of Falun Gong by the Chinese Communist regime.
