On the afternoon of the 10th of February 2004, European Falun Dafa practitioners urgently appealed to the European Parliament in Strasbourg regarding the recent unjust detention of Falun Dafa practitioners in France.
Recently, members of the European Parliament assembled to discuss and prepare topics for the 2004 United Nations Human Rights Commission, including matters concerning the Jiang regime’s persecution of Falun Gong. When practitioners from France, Belgium, Germany, England, Denmark and other European countries heard about this they travelled to the parliament building and hung up banners, including one reading “Uphold France’s Spirit of Liberty”. They called on the MPs to pay attention to the serious indicators that the persecution of Falun Gong is spreading to France.
Practitioners displayed large amounts of materials revealing the truth about the Paris incident. Outside the parliament building, the practitioners’ appeal and exercise demonstration was peaceful and serene. Local media reporters were present and MPs from different countries stopped to get more information from the practitioners. Lots of practitioners met MPs from their own countries who said they would pay close attention to the recent incidents in France.
Since practitioners from different European countries were unjustly arrested or stopped on the street because they wore yellow scarves or yellow clothes during the Chinese Spring Festival Parade in Paris, the whole body of European practitioners recognised that this was a serious act against freedom. Once again, a western democratic government has succumbed to pressure, threats and the promise of financial incentives from the Chinese regime. European Dafa practitioners must act urgently and as one body to halt the regime’s attempts to spread its Genocide all over the world, and to fulfil their vows to let all living beings hear the truth about Dafa and see through the evil lies.
