Italy: Exposing the Persecution of Falun Gong in the City of Milan

On the 24th of July 2005, Italian Falun Gong practitioners organised an anti-torture exhibition in Milan’s Dante Street, exposing to the general public the crimes of genocide committed by the Chinese Communist regime against Falun Gong and raising public awareness of the six years of persecution in China. Some people said that in persecuting Truthfulness, Compassion and Forbearance, the Chinese Communist Party exposed its terrorist nature.

The banners reading “Falun Gong teaches Truthfulness, Compassion and Forbearance”, “Falun Gong is Good”, “Bring Jiang Zemin to Justice” and many posters exposing torture were eye-catching. These were accompanied by a live enactment of the torture, which is routinely used in China against Falun practitioners in attempts to force them to renounce their beliefs. Leaflets about Falun Gong in various languages and petition forms were neatly arranged on the display table. Beside the table was a wreath made of a thousand flowers in memory of over 2,600 Falun Gong practitioners who were persecuted to death in China.

Anti-torture exhibition attracted lots of attention

Although the summer holiday break had already started, there were still many people in Dante Street, including lots of tourists. People stopped to watch the anti-torture exhibition and read the posters. They carefully listened to the explanations from Falun Gong practitioners and asked for more information. Many people signed the petition to support Falun Gong and Falun Gong practitioners in China and to condemn the violence of the Chinese Communist regime.

A middle-aged lady watched for a long while and said that she could not believe that such brutal torture is still happening in today’s world. She asked practitioners why ordinary people are so brutally persecuted for believing in Truthfulness, Compassion and Forbearance. When hearing about the Chinese Communist’s philosophy of lies, evil and violence, people immediately understood the reason. After learning the truth, one gentleman said that he wanted to join our activity because the Chinese Communist Party’s persecution of Truthfulness, Compassion and Forbearance is a persecution of humanity’s common values and they are more evil than those terrorists being used.


Lots of tourists from China watched our activity. Many of them recorded the activity with their camcorders and cameras. A lot of them specially wanted to take a photo of the banner “Falun Gong is Good.” A few of them were frightened and didn’t have the courage to take the leaflets. Seeing that they had been poisoned by the lies of the Chinese Communist regime, practitioners felt more determined to carry on the activity and help people escape from the effect of the terror regime.
