Slovakia: Raising Awareness about Falun Gong in the city of Samorin

On June 21st in Samorin, a city in middle Slovakia, a petition campaign for human rights of Falun Gong practitioners persecuted by the communist regime took place.

The people were at first shy and asked practitioners, "What is Falun Gong?" An elderly lady, who listened to our story, said, "I understand. I was detained in a concentration camp in Germany for five years, I am eighty five years old now. Such things shouldn’t happen.“ Then she signed our petition and urged other people around her to do so. Some followed her example.

A middle aged man said after signing the petition, "Everybody should be free to believe in what he chooses, nobody should restrain him."

A reporter from a local newspaper came to the gathering. As he listened to the story of the persecution, he took pictures of practitioners performing the five exercise movements of Falun Gong.

We gathered more than fifty signatures during our petition and some people expressed a hope that the persecution of Falun Gong practitioners in China would end soon.
