Ukraine: Falun Gong Practitioners Protest Peacefully at the Chinese Embassy (Photos)
(Clearwisdom.net) On December 13, 2007, Ukrainian practitioners held a protest at the Chinese Embassy, urging the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) to stop its eight-year persecution of Falun Gong. Practitioners distributed leaflets and newspapers to inform people that, in China, Falun Gong practitioners have been illegally sent to labor camps and mental hospitals and have even been tortured to death and that the CCP's goal is to force them to give up their belief.
Despite the light snow, the practitioners' protest was not affected. In order to bring this most horrible genocide to an end and to stop the CCP from spreading rumors to overseas countries, Ukrainian practitioners have protested at the Chinese Embassy everyday for the last one and half years. Bad weather has never stopped them. They displayed large banners in front of the embassy to reveal to the Ukrainian people the CCP persecution of Falun Gong and its crime of harvesting organs from living practitioners for profit.
In the Ukraine, the CCP has often spread rumors against Falun Gong through its embassy. At a press conference (possibly staged by the CCP ) held in Kiev at the end of November, a certain organization tried to misguide Ukrainians into hating Falun Gong. Unexpectedly, some conference attendees already knew the true situation with regard to Falun Gong. A philosophy professor, Anatoli Kolodniy, said at the conference, "Three years ago, a delegation from China's Academy came to Kiev. They said they wanted to cooperate with us, but their premise was that we had to support the CCP in its fight against Falun Gong. Our answer to them was, 'Our opinion of Falun Gong is different from yours and we do not have any common ground on this issue. There is international standard on this issue of human rights and beliefs, and you should abide by it as well.'"
No matter how the CCP has tried to spread rumors in the Ukraine, it is hard for them to deceive clear-minded people. The persecution has lasted for eight years, and all the negative information about Falun Gong has come out of CCP-controlled media. In today's world, Falun Dafa is welcomed in over 80 countries. In this year's report of 100 living geniuses, published by the UK consultation company Creator Synectics, the founder of Falun Gong is at the top of the Chinese contingent. Mr. Li has been recognized throughout the world, and many governments, parliament members, and organizations from different countries have awarded Falun Gong and its founder over 2000 citations and acknowledgments.
Regardless of nationality, race, or age, as long as you cultivate steadily
and with a heart full of goodness, you will benefit. Falun Gong is being
understood and treasured by more and more people worldwide.
