On January 5th, 2008, the cold winter wind did not stop Falun Gong practitioners in Helsinki. As usual, when there are a large number of people during the weekend, they went to the central railway station to raise awareness about the evil nature of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP), which persecutes Falun Gong.

Finland has a population larger than five million; even the capital Helsinki only has about 500,000 inhabitants. Rarely have the people gathered together. Since Falun Gong practitioners started from the year 2000, they used all kinds of opportunities - at exhibitions, city parks and business streets in the traveling busy season of summer, in the connection hall of the subway and the train station, the central railway station and other community activities in the winter time, unremittingly to show the peaceful exercises of Falun Gong to the Finnish people. Simultaneously, they exposed the fact of CCP’s persecution of Falun Gong practitioners in mainland China since July 20th, 1999. They appealed to people to help stop this inhuman brutal persecution.

Practitioner Mrs. Jiang said, " just revealed that in the year 2007 it was documented that150 Falun Gong practitioners in China were persecuted to death. Thus, since the persecution from July 20, 1999, CCP and the Jiang faction tortured at least 3,121 mainland Falun Gong practitioners to death during the past eight and a half years. As recent as in December 2007, it was confirmed that another eleven Falun Gong practitioners were persecuted to death.”

“This is merely the tip of the persecution iceberg. Masses of Falun Gong practitioners are missing; even CCP conducts live organ harvesting from them. The fact is still being covered in China under the CCP's strict information blockade.”

“This persecution has continued for eight and a half years. The CCP authorities still continue to persecute the practitioners who believe in Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance.”

Practitioner Wang said that when he saw a Finnish handicapped person sitting in a wheelchair come to sign on his own initiative to support us, he heard a woman with him ask, “What is this?” This handicapped person explained to her, “This is Falun Gong; this is a group of people who have their own belief but are persecuted by the CCP regime, just like Hitler killed the Jews during World War II.” After listening to all this, the woman also went forward and signed the petition.
