Finland: People Act to Rescue the Kidnapped Parents of a Chinese Student in Helsinki

On August 4th 2007, under the bright shining sun, Finnish Helsinki Falun Gong practitioners held an activity outside the central railway station to call for the rescue of the parents of Helsinki Chinese student Sunny and to expose the eight year persecution that the Chinese Communist Party has inflicted on Falun Gong practitioners. Sunny’s parents were kidnapped by the Chinese Communist Party for practising Falun Gong.

In front of a banner calling for the rescue of Sunny’s parents, a practitioner with a loudspeaker told passers-by that Sunny’s father Zhang Weijie and mother Chen Man were kidnapped by the Chinese Communist Party in Wuhan. Sunny stood by the table with an appeal letters to the Finnish government to tell the Finnish people about the severe persecution that her parents and hundreds of millions of Falun Gong practitioners are suffering. The kind Finnish people were shocked by the truth, and some people felt sorry enough to cry on account of the persecution that Falun Gong practitioners are suffering. They received copies of Sunny’s appeal letter, and promised to help to give them out to others, or asked if there were some other things they can do to help. The practitioners unceasingly heard people say that they were doing the right thing.

Sunny thanked the Finnish people for their help. Finland’s third biggest newspaper Aamulehti had published an interview with her on July 22. She hoped that more and more Finns would learn the truth through the newspaper, and that more and more people will stretch out aid to help her parents and the persecuted Falun Gong practitioners, and stop this inhuman persecution together.
After hearing that Sunny’s parents were arrested, a woman with tears in her eyes said it was a shock that this kind of thing can happen nowadays. The woman asked if there were any other things she could do to help. When she heard that she could mail the appeal letters to the Finnish government, she immediately took two and promised to deliver them on that very day.

After an elderly lady listened to a practitioner about the persecution, she was wiping her tears while reading the banners. Later she wanted to donate money to practitioners. When she found out that Falun Gong practitioners do not accept donations, she was moved and said, “You are doing this with your hearts.” Then she signed the petition to call for an end to the persecution.

A gentleman said to the practitioner that he had understood that Chinese the Communist Party persecutes Falun Gong on the Internet, and he had already sent letters to the US and many politicians to intensely protest against the 2008 Olympic Games in Beijing. This gentleman added that the Chinese Communist Party is not China and talked of his hope for the Chinese people to be free of the communist regime. When he found out that every Sunday Falun Gong practitioners teach the exercises free of charge in the park, he said he would go there soon.
