On Saturday the 16th of October, Norwegian Dafa practitioners held an anti-torture exhibition in the capital of Norway to introduce Falun Gong and demonstrate the exercises to people, as well as to collect petition signatures to rescue the eighteen-year-old Liu Xiaotian.
Xiaotian’s parents were detained in 2002 for practising Falun Gong and believing in Truthfulness, Compassion and Tolerance. Since that day, this child has led the life of a fugitive. This summer, Xiaotian found out that both his parents were tortured to death five months after their imprisonment.
At the moment, Xiaotian is applying for asylum in Denmark. The Danish Government, however, has decided to send him back to China. If this happens, Xiaotian will be in danger of being tortured, a similar fate to many Falun Gong practitioners. This is especially the case since he has been participating in anti-torture exhibitions in Scandinavia to let the public know about the persecution against Falun Gong in China.
Many Norwegian people believe that sending Xiaotian back to China is wrong. A passer-by said it is against International Law if Xiaotian is sent back while knowing that he will be at risk of being tortured. A lot of people signed a petition form addressed to the Danish Foreign Minister. People queued up one after another to sign and show their wish to bring an end to the persecution of Falun Gong in China and rescue Xiaotian.
One Danish person summed up the feelings of everyone, “If the Foreign Minister in Demark is publicly recognised as a kind-hearted and sympathetic person, we hope that he can do something for Xiaotian, and also do something to stop the persecution of Falun Gong.”
