On Thursday 17th July in Bratislava, the first in a series of rallies in Slovakia took place to collect signatures for the international petition of a “million signatures”. The goal of the global anti-persecution petition is to demand that the Chinese Communist regime immediately stops its persecution of Falun Gong, unconditionally release all Falun Gong practitioners in detention and end the suppression of righteous individuals who support Falun Gong, such as the human rights lawyer Gao Zhisheng.
People immediately showed their support. One elderly lady said after signing of the petition: “I support what you are doing. My father was persecuted during the communist rule in Slovakia.”

Also the media were interested in the petition. Journalists from both main press agencies in Slovakia conducted interviews with the event organisers. One practitioner explained the benefits she has gained from practising Falun gong.
A cameraman from a local TV station came to shoot footage of the event, which was broadcast in the evening news. A lady from another television crew made a video report to be published on their internet news bulletin.
