(Clearwisdom.net) On December 10th, International Human Rights Day, Bulgarian practitioners held a public demonstration in Sofia to raise public awareness of the persecution of Falun Gong in China.

The practitioners distributed fliers with information about the persecution of Falun Gong and the Chinese Communist regime's atrocities of harvesting organs from living practitioners, demonstrated the five sets of Falun Gong exercises, and collected signatures. The activities attracted the attention of many passers-by despite the cold weather. Many people signed the petition, including one of the most popular human rights activists in Bulgaria. In several hours, the practitioners gathered about 150 signatures calling for an end to the persecution in China.

Many people understood why the Communist party in China started to persecute practitioners in 1999, when it found out that there were more practitioners than party members. Some people were shocked to learn the facts that the Communist party harvests organs from living Falun Gong practitioners for profit. In addition, some people expressed their interest in learning the exercises and reading the books of Falun Gong.
