Stockholm’s public square (Stortorget) is the oldest public square in the capital of Sweden, and is a small public square in the centre of the old city. In the middle ages, the old city gradually took form around this public square. The Nobel museum is located here, so this place is visited frequently by tourists. As this was the time period for the Nobel prize announcements, there were many more tourists, reporters and policemen in the area.
In recent years, people often saw Falun Gong practitioners in this public square. On the 7th and 8th of October 2022, some practitioners came here once again, to demonstrate the Falun Gong exercises, and raise awareness about the persecution their fellow practitioners are facing in China. The scene of Falun Gong practitioners practicing their exercises attracted the attention of people there.
Swedish policeman: “you’ve done a great job!”
Two Swedish policemen came to carry out their official duty. First they stood by the side and patiently waited for practitioners to finish answering a tourist's questions, then they came forward to see the permit for the event. They praised Falun Gong practitioners and said, “You’ve don’t a great job!”. Practitioners told them more about the practice, and informed them that the founder of Falun Gong, Mr. Li Hongzhi had been nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize four times.
The policemen learned that in the past 23 years, facing brutal persecution, Falun Gong practitioners consistently used peaceful and non-violent means, to tell the world's people the true situation and expose the CCP’s persecution. They listened earnestly and nodded their heads to express agreement. One of the policemen took a pamphlet about disintegrating the CCP before he left and said that he would tell his family members what he'd learned and sign the online petition.
A Christian: This is very admirable!
A very tall and handsome man came forward to sign the petition. He said, “I know of the CCP’s evil and its persecution of people, however I don’t know of Falun Gong.” Consequently, a practitioner told him about what Falun Gong is, why the CCP persecutes the practice, the CCP’s abuse of human rights and the crimes of harvesting Falun Gong practitioners' organs.
After coming to realise the true situation, he was very moved. He said: “I am also a very traditional person, and I don’t smoke and don’t drink. I know that the CCP is very evil, and your standing up to expose the evil of the CCP, is very admirable!”
In the end he said, “I very much feel for and support you.” He also called his friends who were accompanying him and asked them to sign the petition. Upon leaving, he also took some leaflets. He said that he would like to help more people to know the true situation, and to condemn the persecution.
A tourist from Germany: “You are hope!”
Two young lads from Dortmund in Germany were absorbed in reading all of the information on the display boards, and after having read all of it they spoke for a long time to a practitioner who could speak German. After hearing of the CCP's crime of harvesting organs from Falun Gong practitioners, the two of them were very shocked. They talked about how German people are starting to reflect more deeply, about how nowadays all of the people in the world are victims, how at present there is a problem with energy sources and a crisis of foods. They found these things distressing.
The two young men said “You are the hope! You guys standing here, that is hope!” They hoped that the persecution of Falun Gong practitioners would quickly come to an end. After the two of them signed their names on the petition , they gladly expressed that all of this was not done in vain!
A newly married couple: Delighted to hear the truth about Dafa
A newly wed couple who were visiting Sweden were very happy to see the activities. They had come across Falun Gong last week in Amsterdam, and were drawn to the peaceful activities of Falun Gong practitioners. But they didn’t have much time to find out what it was about and felt rather regretful.
The newly wed couple had not expected to again come across Falun Gong in Sweden. Their curiosity was satisfied, and the bride said: “We finally got to know to the end what happened!"
They expressed sadness for the Falun Gong practitioners who had suffered persecution and condemned the crimes of the CCP harvesting Falun Gong practitioners’ organs. They both signed their names on the petition and showed their support.
An old couple changed their notions
A couple from North Norway came over to speak to practitioners. Although they denounced the CCPs persecution of Falun Gong, they believed that their signatures on the petition would have no effect on the Chinese Communist Party. The practitioner kindly told them: "Gods only look at one's heart, and in the face of persecution they only look at how people declare where they stand. If even more people can come to know the true situation and dare to stand up and speak out for righteousness, and do what the Divine requires us to do, then the persecution would finish sooner."
After hearing this, the two old people nodded their heads in agreement. They put on their glasses and earnestly signed their names on the petition.
