On July 14 and 15, 2012, Falun Gong practitioners from Stockholm held an event on Mynttorget Square between City Hall, the Swedish Palace, and the Parliament. They set up display boards to show how Falun Gong practitioners are persecuted in China and to let people know about Falun Gong (Falun Dafa). They asked passersby to help to end this persecution and bring Jiang Zemin and his accomplices to justice.
|Passers by talked to local Falun gong practitioners to find out more|
|The rain didn't deter people from stopping to read the display boards|
|On the table was a petition that people could sign to call for an end to the persecution|
It was chilly and windy and rained occasionally, but the practitioners didn't want to miss the opportunity to clarify the truth to the tourists, so they carried on despite the bad weather.
Ms. Sari, who came from Linkoping City, was quite happy to run into Falun Dafa practitioners. Back in March, she had read a lot on the Falundafa.org website and now wanted to learn the exercises properly. She had taught herself the five exercises from the website and felt a strong energy. After talking to a practitioner, she said she would join a local practice group as soon as she returned to Linkoping.
Many people were upset to learn about the Chinese Communist Party's persecution of a group of people for their faith in Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance and asked practitioners what they could do to help. People stood in the rain with their umbrellas and studied the display boards closely. Many signed their names after learning the facts, and some called their family to come sign in support, too.
A middle-aged Chinese woman came with two teenage boys. They read the display boards quietly. When she learned that she could announce her resignation from the CCP and its affiliated organizations at the site, she and her sons immediately quit the Young Pioneers. She told a practitioner that she often watched NTDTV and read the Epoch Times newspaper and had already made up her mind to quit the CCP and its organizations.
Three Chinese tourists came to the event. One of them asked for a whole set of truth-clarification materials. He said he had been using software to break through the Great Firewall to read the truth on overseas websites for a long time. He had already heard about quitting the CCP and he no longer believed the CCP propaganda. He quit the Young Pioneers to break away officially from the Communist Party.
Another Chinese woman tourist also quit the Youth League and the Young Pioneers.
A lady who used to work for the United Nations said she had worked in Beijing for awhile and had learned a lot about what is really going on in China. She hopes the human rights situation in China will improve soon.
An older Swedish man who read the display boards was very angry and upset at the Chinese Communist Party's brutal persecution. He repeated, “It is so heartless, so cruel!” He signed the petition to support efforts to end the persecution.
A man and a woman who work at City Hall came and read the display boards. Afterwards, they said, “You are doing a great thing—please keep it up!” They took a copy of each handout and said they would read them.
