On November 20, 2001, Swedish Practitioner Maria-Leena went to Tiananmen Square with a group of practitioners from 12 countries. They held a peaceful appeal to let the world know that Falun Dafa is good and to stop the brutal persecution against Dafa practitioners by Jiang Zemin's regime. Chinese police welcomed the peaceful foreign practitioners with punches and kicks. Two days later the bruises on Maria's body from the beatings in China were still clearly visible. The following photos are evidence that Chinese police resorted to committing acts of violence toward foreign citizens.
