Almedalen Week (Almedalsveckan) is held in early July of each year around Almedalen Park, in the city of Visby on the Swedish island Gotland. Local practitioners demonstrated the Falun Gong exercises and setup a display reenacting organ harvesting atrocities that continue in China.
With speeches, seminars and other political activities, Almedalen Week is considered an important political forum in Sweden. Local politicians, human rights activists and the media all take part.

|A lady from South Korea: It is important to take action to stop the persecution in China|
Two practitioners held a question and answer session to introduce Falun Gong and to raise awareness of the persecution it faces in China.
Many in attendance were shocked to learn of the persecution, particularly of the organ harvesting atrocities. “It is important to take action to stop the persecution,” said a young lady from South Korea. She said she would post the information on Facebook and let her friends know.
Mr. Rene, a visitor from Gothenburg, asked what he could do to help stop the persecution. “The terror has been covered for a long time and the scale is so large. I kept thinking while I was listening to the introductions, what can we do as members of the public?”
“Information is a very important part of the actions,” he added. “We'll talk to our friends and families about the persecution.”
Human Harvest was shown at Roxy, a local cinema, on July 6. Human Harvest, a 2014 documentary film directed by Vancouver filmmaker Leon Lee, follows the work of Canadian Nobel Peace Prize nominees David Matas and David Kilgour as they investigate organ harvesting allegations in China.
