UK: Peaceful Protest at the Chinese Consulate in Manchester

December 10th, 2008, marked International Human Rights Day. Falun Gong practitioners in central and northern England held an activity in front of the Chinese Consulate in Manchester to remember the Falun Gong practitioners who have been murdered by the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) in its nine year persecution of Falun Gong. They also called on the Chinese people to quit the CCP and its affiliated organisations.

The activity began at 9:00 a.m. and concluded after 12:00 p.m. The practitioners peacefully demonstrated the Falun Gong exercises, distributed flyers to passers-by and to those who came to the Chinese Consulate for visa issues.

For nine years, Falun Gong practitioners have peacefully resisted the persecution in China. Through their efforts, the world's people have recognised the practitioners' peacefulness, rationality, great compassion and tolerance, and have come to clearly see the CCP's brutality. Outside the Chinese Consulate, most of the Chinese people who came in and out of the consulate smiled at the practitioners, and some people asked the practitioners to help them quit the CCP and its affiliated organisations.
