On Saturday June 10th, just as a year ago, Bielefeld held a kilometre long cross-town carnival parade. People enjoying the festival could be seen everywhere on the streets. Not only locals, but also people from surrounding areas had come to enjoy the festivities and the town was filled with people.
Over ninety million Falun Gong practitioners have suffered much harm and misery since July 1999. Many people are still taken to and imprisoned in slave labour camps, where they suffer under horrible conditions and are miserably exploited as free slave labour. Others suffered inhuman torture without any visible reason.
Festival goers asked over and over again, “Why?” Why this persecution that perpetrates all levels of society? Now, given this opportunity in Bielefeld, more and more people had the opportunity to hear about this, and about what is hiding behind the glossy and developing façade of China. They could read on the fliers about the country where “human rights are still violated.”
