Practitioners held activities at Sweden’s Royal Palace, the Nobel Prize Museum, and Stockholm Concert Hall every Friday and Saturday afternoon in October 2023. They told people about Falun Dafa, how the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) persecutes practitioners and harvests their organs for transplant. 

Many tourists visit Sweden in October. It’s also the month the Nobel Prizes are announced. Sweden is the home of Alfred Nobel, founder of the Nobel Prize, and tourists and outdoor enthusiasts from around the world are attracted to the country’s scenery. 

People Happy to Learn About Falun Dafa

People stopped to watch the exercise demonstrations and chat with practitioners during their activity outside the Nobel Prize Museum. Many people wanted to know more about Falun Dafa and why it’s persecuted. 

Florian from Germany was shocked upon learning about the CCP’s persecution of Falun Dafa practitioners. He was in Sweden on business and told practitioners that he had business dealings in China. He signed the petition and said he knew about the CCP’s human rights violations. He had talked with two Chinese people who denied that the persecution was happening. He said, “I feel sad for them. They have been completely brainwashed by the CCP.”

Florian said he was happy to meet practitioners and hear about the CCP regime from a different perspective. 

After Niko from Finland signed the petition to help end the persecution he said, “I give you my full support. I know Falun Dafa is very good. I also know that the CCP not only persecutes Falun Dafa, it also persecutes the Uyghurs, Tibetans and Hong Kongers. The CCP is the root of all evil.” Niko said as long as the CCP exists, people will be sacrificed. “The CCP is an evil demon.”

A young Pakistani woman read the poster boards and chatted with practitioners for a long time. She was shocked to learn about the CCP’s forced live organ harvesting which targets Falun Dafa practitioners. “I went to school in Nanjing, but I never heard anyone talk about this. How can such a peaceful practice be subjected to such brutal persecution? I will tell my teachers and friends. This is an important matter!”

Falun Dafa Well-Liked

Falun Dafa practitioners held activities outside Sweden’s Royal Palace on October 27, 2023. Endless streams of passersby stopped and talked with practitioners and many signed the petition to help end the persecution. Some were also interested in learning to practice the exercises. 

Two ladies from Maribor, Slovenia said this was the first time they heard of Falun Dafa. They were very upset when they learned how the CCP forcibly harvests organs from practitioners. One said, “This is unbelievable! The CCP is so evil and needs to be stopped!” They signed the petition and said they wanted to learn more about Falun Dafa. 

They were astonished after reading the truth-clarification materials in Slovenian, and one said, “Falun Dafa is great! It’s amazing that the information was translated into Slovenian!” 

Lina from Sweden signed the petition and said she supported practitioners in ending the persecution. “Practitioners are doing an important task of telling people the truth. This involves a lot of innocent lives. Practitioners are doing a very good thing.”

Chinese University Students Withdraw from the CCP

Two Chinese university students passed by the practitioners’ activity. They said they were born after the 1990s and asked practitioners many questions. It was obvious that they were blinded by the CCP’s lies for a long time. 

After learning that the self-immolation was staged, the girl said, “I understand everything now. The CCP could not find any flaws with practitioners, so it staged everything.” She agreed to withdraw from the Communist Youth League and the Young Pioneers. They both took truth-clarification booklets and copies of the Nine Commentaries on the Communist Party

Sharing Falun Dafa

Practitioners’ peaceful exercise demonstrations, colorful banners, poster boards and energetic waist drum performances attracted many passersby. Practitioners told people about the benefits of Falun Dafa and about the persecution. 

Pirjo is a registered nurse and began practicing Falun Dafa 28 years ago. When she was 36 years old she was diagnosed with a spinal condition. She underwent various treatments and therapy sessions. However, nothing helped. After she began practicing Falun Dafa in April 1999, her life took a turn for the better. 

Pirjo’s mind and body were cleansed and her moral standards were elevated. She said, “This kind of elevation makes me feel very light, so light to the point I feel as if I am floating. I know that cultivation is meant to cultivate one’s xinxing and elevate oneself to become a better and forgiving person. I try not to get angry with others; instead I look inward and try to follow the principles of Truthfulness, Compassion, and Forbearance.” 

Pirjo was among the 36 western Falun Dafa practitioners who went to Tiananmen Square to peacefully appeal in 2001. She had firsthand experience of CCP’s brutality and said, “We will never give up as long as the persecution hasn't ended.”

Anna is a sculptress who learned about Falun Dafa in 1999. Before she began practicing, she suffered a serious concussion and did not fully recover. She could not focus and had trouble remembering things. 

She said, “A friend recommended that I practice Falun Dafa. I did, and the problems disappeared as soon as I started practicing. Falun Dafa is amazing!”

She said that practicing Falun Dafa brought her inner peace, and it’s easier to cope with the difficulties and conflicts in life.
