Sweden: Anti-Torture Exhibition in Stockholm Calls for End of Persecution (Photos)
(Clearwisdom.net) On the 10th of June, Falun Gong practitioners from Europe, the United States, Australia and Taiwan held an anti-torture exhibition in Stockholm to expose the brutal methods of persecution used against practitioners by the Chinese Communist Party (CCP). With the exhibition, practitioners hoped to expose the 6-year persecution by Jiang regime and the CCP against practitioners who merely want to live their lives by the principles of "Truthfulness, Compassion, Tolerance." Once again, practitioners called upon all kind-hearted people to take actions to stop this persecution.
Demonstrating methods of torture used on Falun Gong practitioners by the Chinese Communist Party
At the anti-torture exhibition site, three iron cages showed typical scenes from Chinese forced labor camps: the first cage with practitioners being brainwashed, the second with practitioners being forced to do slave labor and the third with practitioners being cruelly tortured. In the third cage, the reenacted torture methods including hanging up, locking up and Tiger Bench were demonstrated.
On the opposite side to the torture demonstration was the peaceful scene of Falun Gong exercises being practiced accompanied by beautiful music, which was a sharp contrast with the torture demonstration. In front of the demonstrations were boards carrying a brief introduction to Falun Gong and the anti-torture exhibition. While viewing the exhibition boards, many people were comparing what they read to the exercise demonstration. People living in democratic countries find it difficult to believe the fact that the brutal persecution of these peaceful, kind people is happening right now in China.
Falun Gong is based on the principle of Truthfulness, Compassion and Tolerance - Falun Gong exercises are peaceful, simple and slow
People were reading the boards and getting to know about the persecution
By signing the petition, they showed their support for ending the persecution of Falun Gong
People were shocked at the cruel means of the persecution
Using a microphone, a practitioner explained the methods of persecution used by the Chinese Communist Party in attempts to force practitioners to renounce their beliefs. Falun Gong practitioners are trying to be good people according to the principles of "Truthfulness, Compassion, Tolerance." Their minds and bodies have benefited from practicing Falun Gong. They aim to follow Falun Gong's principles of being a good person in all aspects of life, which is good for any society. Why is such an inhuman persecution of good people still happening in the 21st Century?
Practitioners distributed leaflets to passers-by and answered questions people raised. When seeing children and the elderly, they kindly gave them a paper lotus flower carefully hand-made by practitioners, expressing best wishes.
