On the 28th of June, the “Truthfulness, Compassion, Forbearance” International Art Exhibition opened in the European Parliament in Brussels. The exhibition was warmly supported by MEP Mr Pannella and was organised by the Belgium Falun Gong Association.

The art exhibition displayed about twenty art works by Western and Chinese artists. It was divided into four themes: “The Beauty of Cultivation”, “Uncompromising Courage”, “The Call for Justice” and “Justice Prevails”.

In the first day of the exhibition, many officials from twenty-five EU member states and European Parliament staff members came to view the paintings. A lot of them were reluctant to leave. Some came back and viewed the art works several times. Visitors were very touched by the underlying meaning of the paintings and really appreciated them. They were shocked to learn that such a brutal persecution against peaceful Falun Gong practitioners is being carried out by the Communist Party in China.

Quite a few visitors said that this was the best art exhibition they had seen in the Parliament.

After viewing the paintings, a Portuguese lady who works for an investment fund said that this was a most moving moment for her and sincerely hoped that she could help to exhibit these excellent art works in many other countries.

A veteran European Parliament official viewed each painting very carefully. He then came to the assistants at the exhibition and said, “I am really grateful to you for bringing such pure and beautiful art works here. I very much hope that I can do something for the exhibition.” He then left a message in the guest book: “Justice will definitely prevail.”

At the opening ceremony in the evening of the 28th, MEP Mr Pannella that he was very happy that the art exhibition was being held in the European Parliament. The art works displayed the courageous efforts by Falun Gong practitioners in calling for freedom of belief. Their efforts are not just for Falun Gong, but also for all the Chinese people who are seeking freedom.

In a speech, Mr Slatts from the Belgium Falun Gong Association thanked many MEPs for their continuous support of Falun Gong. He hoped that through this exhibition many more people would learn the beauty of Falun Gong and join the worldwide voice condemning the ongoing persecution of Falun Gong in China.

The artists who created these works also sent a letter congratulating the exhibition organisers and wishing the exhibition great success. They thanked MEPs for their support of this exhibition. They also thanked the Belgium Falun Gong Association and all the assistants who helped organise the exhibition.

In the letter, it said: “We are all Falun Gong practitioners. Our inspirations are from our cultivation. Through our works, we very much want to share with viewers the beauty of Falun Gong cultivation, to expose the brutal persecution of Falun Gong by the Chinese Communist regime and to show the uncompromising courage of Falun Gong practitioners in the face of the persecution. We wanted people through traditional art forms, to return to normal human values and righteous belief.”

The exhibition lasted for three days and successfully concluded on the 30th of June. Practitioners from Holland, France and Germany came to help Belgian practitioners in setting up exhibition and in explaining the artworks to the visitors.
