Falun Gong practitioners from 35 European countries held a parade in Warsaw on September 9, 2022. The practitioners wanted to raise awareness of the Chinese Communist Party’s (CCP) persecution. They called on everyone to find ways to stop the CCP’s atrocities.

The parade started at Aleje Ujazdowskie Street, passed by the Prime Minister’s Office building, the Presidential Palace, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, consulates of several countries, and ended in the old city.

Marek, a native of Warsaw, stood at an intersection and watched the parade attentively. After talking with a practitioner for a while, he found out about the CCP’s organ harvesting from living Falun Gong practitioners. He said that it was too scary to think about and unimaginable.

“The freedom of human thought is the most terrifying issue for the Communist Party,” Marek said. “They do their best to erase people’s thoughts, especially beliefs. They force people to accept the Communist Party’s ideology. If people don’t accept it, they are regarded as enemies.”

He truly supports Falun Gong practitioners in their exposure of the CCP’s crimes, and hoped that people would listen and begin to understand the nature of the CCP.

An elderly gentleman who lives near the parade route was out shopping, and happened to see the procession passing by. He glanced at the flier and said, “Communism is fundamentally a very bad thing, and it has been developed to the extreme in China. It seems that in China the economic development is not bad but really everything else is as bad as it gets. In Poland we’ve been through communism and we abandoned it, but there’s some residual impact.”

Christine signed the petition calling for an end to the persecution. Her boyfriend James was appalled upon hearing about the CCP’s organ harvesting from living people. Both said that communism was a terrible thing.

Background: What Is Falun Dafa and Why is the CCP persecuting it?
Falun Dafa (also known as Falun Gong) was first introduced to the public by Mr. Li Hongzhi in Changchun, China, in 1992. The spiritual discipline is now practiced in over 100 countries worldwide. Millions of people who have embraced the teachings, which are based on the principles of Truthfulness, Compassion, and Forbearance, and have learned the five exercises, have experienced improved health and well-being.

Jiang Zemin, former head of the CCP, perceived the spiritual discipline’s growing popularity as a threat to the CCP’s atheistic ideology, and on July 20, 1999, he issued an order to eliminate the practice.

Under Jiang’s personal direction, the CCP established the 610 Office, an extralegal security organization with the power to override the police and judicial systems, and whose sole function is to carry out the persecution of Falun Gong.

Minghui.org has confirmed the deaths of thousands of practitioners as a result of the persecution over the past 23 years. The actual number is believed to be much higher. Countless practitioners have been imprisoned and tortured for their faith.

There is concrete evidence that the CCP sanctions the harvesting of organs from detained practitioners, who are murdered to supply China’s organ transplant industry.
