On July 20th, 2008, a date marking nine years of the persecution against Falun Gong in China, practitioners in Thailand held a candlelight vigil in Queens Park to memorialize the fellow practitioners who were killed in the persecution, and appeal to the world to help end the persecution immediately.

The practitioners, wearing white T-shirts, held up banners to clarify the truth and lit candles. The event was to memorialise the practitioners who lost their lives in safeguarding their beliefs and to support the 40 million Chinese who have quit the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) and its affiliated organisations.

Falun Gong website has confirmed that 3,168 Chinese Falun Dafa practitioners have been killed in the persecution since July 20th, 1999, when Jiang Zemin ordered the eradication of Falun Gong. There are also over 100,000 practitioners illegally held in forced labour camps, and thousands detained in mental hospitals. Countless others have been arrested, beaten, tortured and even had their organs harvested while still alive.

The Coalition to Investigate the Persecution of Falun Gong (CIPFG) initiated a "Million Signature Campaign against the Persecution" in 127 countries and regions. As of July 20th, over 1.1 million signatures have been collected. In Thailand, many people participated in the campaign and signed their names to demand that the CCP stop the persecution and to support Falun Gong's efforts against the persecution.
