December 10th, 2007, was the 59th World Human Rights Day. Falun Gong practitioners went to the Chinese Embassy in London to hold a candle light vigil. On this special day, the gathering of Falun Gong practitioners clearly sent a message around the world, a common voice from all practitioners and supporters of Falun Gong: Stop persecuting Falun Gong.

Falun Gong practitioners call for an end to the persecution

Practitioners protested against the brutal persecution of Falun Gong in China by quietly sitting in meditiation in front of the Chinese Embassy. They honoured the memory of more than 3000 Falun Gong practitioners who have lost their lives for adhering to Falun Dafa's guiding principles of truth, compassion, and forbearance during eight years of persecution. Practitioners displayed banners in Chinese and English reading: Falun Gong, a peaceful meditation group - Falun Gong is being persecuted in China, the Chinese Communist regime's persecution of Falun Gong have lasted more than eight years; stop the genocide against Falun Gong. Many pedestrians and passing motorists took flyers, and some people crossed the road to get flyers and take pictures.

Among the Falun Gong practitioners who participated in the activities, there were those who had even been illegally put in labour camps by the CCP, because they refused to give up their beliefs; some gave long term support to the 24 hour peaceful protest in front of the Chinese Embassy in London. In order to awaken the people's conscience and spread the truth, some practitioners visit London's Chinatown everyday to raise awareness of the persecution among the Chinese people there. Some have just arrived from the mainland, it’s the first time for them to freely speak out.

Many practitioners from all over the UK gathered on World Human Rights Day, not only because of truthfulness, compassion and forbearance, but also because they wished to convey their appeal to the people from all sectors of British society and come together to stop the persecution of Falun Gong.
