Falun Gong practitioners caught a human rights activist's attention while they were at Mynttorget, a public square in the medieval part of central Stockholm on January 12.

The practitioners had been demonstrating the exercises and raising awareness of the persecution in China when the rights activist approached them and said, “I know about the persecution of Falun Gong in China, and I have been following this issue.”

This activist said she would be attending a human rights convention in March and the persecution of Falun Gong was an important issue on the agenda. She took some materials from the practitioners and said, “We will fight with you!”

An elderly Swedish man commented that the meditation looked so peaceful. “The Chinese Communist Party is crazy! Otherwise, how could it persecute such good people and for so long? You have done a good job. God bless you.”

Another man came with questions. He couldn't believe that China lacks human rights and freedom of belief, especially since his brother, who has done business in China for over a decade, had told him the opposite. The practitioner shared with him what Falun Gong is and the reasons for the persecution, as well as the fact that practitioners in China are killed for their organs.

“This is horrific! Such things are unimaginable!,” he said. “I understand now and know what to do in the future.” He thanked the practitioner and took some flyers with him.
