Raising Awareness about the Persecution of Falun Gong

Falun Gong practitioners couldn’t understand why the CCP persecutes such good people, who cultivate themselves according to “Truthfulness, Compassion and Tolerance”. When talking about how he felt at that time, a practitioner named Sven said, “I really did not believe my eyes and ears. I did not understand why on earth it does this? Why does it persecute those kind people? Just for their wanting to be healthy, cultivating Truthfulness, Compassion and Tolerance and be good people. These things I have never heard of. At same time, before the persecution, I went to China many times. How many people were practicing Falun Gong in China? You could see them where you went into parks; everywhere people were practicing Falun Gong. Why does it punish and persecute those good and kind people. I know many of them, they are so kind. I didn’t understand.”

At that time, the western media did not know Falun Gong, they spread the CCP's had slander of Falun Gong in their reports. From not understanding why the persecution took place, Falun Gong practitioners started to talk about their own experiences, telling people that Falun Gong is a way of cultivation teaching people to be good people according to “Truthfulness, Compassion and Tolerance” and bringing people health in both body and mind. It is wrong that the CCP persecutes Falun Gong.

Sven said, “Even my work place, those colleagues of mine all read the propaganda from newspapers, much of them was translated from newspapers by the CCP. I had never heard of that sort of vocabulary. At the beginning, I only laughed at how stupid they were, I felt that they must have some reason why they had done that. So, we let them know the facts, telling them not to believe the CCP’s propaganda. It was very difficult at the beginning. Many people felt that we were very dangerous, and some Chinese were very afraid of us. Just like this, we have been exposing the truth to the authorities, politicians and passers-by, step by step, and year in and year out.”

Besides talking to Swedish civilians and politicians, Sven has been to nearly thirty five countries including Japan, South Korea, Taiwan, Singapore, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, Egypt and Israel. He often goes to work several days in succession, squeezing out his time-out, spending his own savings and traveling all over the world clarifying the truth. Everything he has done is to end the persecution of Falun Gong by the CCP, to let people learn the facts about Falun Gong, not be deceived by the CCP.

Other Swedish Falun Gong practitioners let more people learn what the real Falun Gong is by using all kinds of ways. They go to the streets, setting up booths and giving out leaflets, demonstrating the five sets of gentle Falun Gong exercises and telling people that Falun Gong is such a peaceful practice. They have displayed photos of Falun Gong practitioners being persecuted, which were passed through many hands or places from mainland China. Through anti-persecution displays, they are telling people that Falun Gong practitioners are being tortured in this way in China and asking for help the end of the torture.

After the “Nine Commentaries on the Communist Party”, editorials by Epoch Times newspaper, were published, Falun Gong practitioners also helped promote the Nine commentaries”, because the “Nine Commentaries on the Communist Party” has systematically and impersonally revealed the facts that why the CCP persecutes Falun Gong. It is because that the CCP’ nature is completely opposed to what Falun Gong teaches. More and more people are starting to learn the truth and help Falun Gong practitioners using their own ways.

Many people signed petitions supporting the end of the persecution of Falun Gong by the CCP. During open days in schools, head teachers helped Falun Gong practitioners distribute material and introduce Falun Gong. The open TV station in Stockholm, reported the CCP’s persecution of Gao Rongrong and some other Falun Gong practitioners in a special programme. Askensten, the reporter said in the programme: “To the scale of the persecution of Falun Gong, the CCP can well be counted as one of the worst human right violators.” The programme called on the people to pay attention to this persecution and take action to help reach he end of the persecution.

The Swedish non-governmental organisation (The Organization to Support Human Rights in China) has joined CIPFG and is looking forward to together investigating much more facts about the persecution of Falun Gong, especially about the CCP's crime of removing organs from live Falun Gong practitioners.

The 'Truthfulness, Compassion Forbearance International Art Exhibition' is made up of works by Falun Gong practitioners. During such an exhibition in Stockholm, MP Harald Nordlund said in the opening remark, “All of us can use a variety of ways expressing that we can’t accept the evil CCP's attacks and slandering of freedom and human rights. We must stand on the side of the victims in this persecution and many other people whose human rights are being violated, and must uphold justice for them. We can write this persecution down telling people about the persecution and passing good information by using all kinds of art forms.”

Music is also a way of spreading the facts. Swedish Falun Gong practitioners have set up a musical group. They themselves not only compose music and sing as well. What they have expressed is very clear: “Stop persecuting Falun Gong.”

Falun Gong practitioners in all over the world have one thing in common: they won’t give up their belief. They will keep using all methods letting people know the facts and will together end the persecution of good people.
