On November 9, 2013, Falun Gong practitioners in Sweden held a signature drive on Mynttorget Square, in the capitol city, Stockholm. The petition, initiated by Doctors Against Forced Organ Harvesting (DAFOH), calls on the United Nations to strongly condemn the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) for harvesting organs from living Falun Gong practitioners. The CCP has been persecuting this peaceful cultivation practice for the past 14 years.

In order for more people to learn about Falun Gong and the inhumane atrocities committed by the CCP, practitioners in Sweden have been holding signature collection activities on Mynttorget Square, every Saturday for the past year.

Many people praised the practitioners’ efforts and were happy to sign the DAFOH petition, showing their support for Falun Gong.

“We Admire You for Your Efforts”
Three men from Malta carefully read the informational display boards and then briefly talked to the practitioners. “We all know that Falun Gong is being persecuted,” said one of the men, as they each signed the petition. “We admire you for your efforts to stop this senseless persecution.”

A woman from France told the practitioners that she had just seen the documentary, Free China: The Courage to Believe , and it was through the film that she had learned about Falun Gong and the Chinese regime's persecution of the practice. After signing the petition, she briefly talked to the two young men that she was with, and they, too, signed the form.

“I Want to Show this DAFOH Petition to My Colleagues, Too!”
A Swedish doctor told a practitioner, “I want to show this DAFOH petition to my colleagues so that they can sign it, too.” He said that he wanted more people to know about the persecution.

A Swedish human rights activist signed the petition and then took a photo with practitioners. He said that he would do his best to help improve China's human rights situation.

When He Heard about the CCP's Organ Harvesting, He Cried
Another local man listened attentively to the practitioners clarifying the truth. When he heard that the CCP is harvesting organs from living Falun Gong practitioners, he cried. He was so sad for the practitioners and angry at the CCP, that he couldn't listen any more. With a trembling hand, he signed the petition and wiped away his tears as he left.

Two young Chinese women who were touring Sweden carefully read every informational board and seemed reluctant to leave. The two girls quietly listened to the practitioners explain the facts and then wholeheartedly agreed to quit the Chinese Communist Youth League, using pseudonyms to symbolically distance themselves from the CCP.
