UK-based Falun Gong practitioners protested against the deportation of three Falun Gong asylum seekers from Korea to China in front of the Korean Embassy in London from August 5 to 7, 2009.

Protesting the deportation of Falun Gong practitioners to China Passers by showed their support by signing the petition

Under pressure from the Chinese Communist government, the Korean government deported three Falun Gong asylum seekers in July. Currently, two more practitioners are at risk of being forced to leave Korea. Falun Gong practitioners from different countries have appealed to the Korean government not to give in to the Chinese Communist regime, but instead to take the side of justice, support human rights and stop the deportation of the Falun Gong asylum seekers.

UK Falun Gong practitioners handed out flyers and exposed the 10 years of brutal persecution against Falun Gong by the Chinese Communist Party.

On July 20, 1999, the Chinese Communist Party launched a systematic persecution of Falun Gong. This persecution has not only targeted Falun Gong practitioners’ belief in Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance, but also has fundamentally damaged the society's morality and value system. The persecution is not limited to within China, but also extends overseas.

Falun Gong practitioners held up banners to alert officials from the Korean Embassy and local residents to face the truth: "Falun Gong practitioners in China are being tortured to death". Falun Gong practitioners also sincerely appealed to the Korean government and the public: "Do not give in to the Chinese Communist regime".

People stopped to inquire about the persecution of Falun Gong and learn about the deportation incidents in Korea. They showed understanding and support for the protest. After three days of protest, many people have signed the petition. Some people said that this was the first time they'd heard about Falun Gong. They wanted to know more about Falun Gong and some people wanted to know where the practice sites are.
