The set up of the European Dafa Association, the re-launch of the European Falun Dafa website [Clear Harmony] and the increased understanding of Falun Dafa in various European countries have had a positive effect on the growing support for Falun Gong in Europe.
In order to further expose the evil of the persecution, clarify the truth of Falun Gong, almost 200 Falun Dafa practitioners gathered together in Rome, the capital of Italy, to participate in the SOS Urgent Rescue of Falun Gong practitioners persecuted in China activity. This activity was organized by Italys Falun Gong Association and carried out with the direct help and participation of various non-governmental organizations [NGOs].
Representatives from both houses of the Italian parliament were very supportive of the SOS Urgent Rescue of Falun Dafa practitioners persecuted in China appeal activity. They had already drafted a resolution a few days before about human rights in China. The main points of this condemned the Chinese government for its brutal persecution of Falun Gong practitioners. Some ministers from both the House of representatives and the Senate, on their own initiative, started a signature collection for a petition appealing for the urgent rescue of Falun Dafa practitioners persecuted in China.
