(Clearwisdom.net) On April 25 eight years ago, over ten thousand Falun Gong practitioners went to the State Council Appeals Office near Zhongnanhai, the central government compound in Beijing, to clarify the situation to the state leaders about interference and unfair treatment to Falun Gong, and the illegal arrest of practitioners by the Public Security Bureau in Tianjin. This event aroused international attention and the overseas media reported on it widely. The Chinese Premier had a meeting with several representatives of the Falun Gong practitioners, and through this direct communication, the problem was resolved satisfactorily. Throughout the whole process of the appeal, the Falun Gong practitioners manifested peacefulness, rationality and kindness, which received the admiration of international society.

Falun Gong practitioners commemorate the April 25 Appeal in front of the Chinese Embassy

However, the April 25 Appeal has been taken as an excuse to launch the nationwide persecution of Falun Gong by Jiang Zemin, the head of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP). Jiang and the CCP slandered the practitioners' peaceful appeal as "besieging Zhongnanhai," and mobilized the whole state-controlled media to defame Falun Gong, flooding China and the whole world with lies. For a while, many people, deceived by the lies, also believed that the April 25 Appeal was the cause of the persecution.

On July 20, 1999, the evil CCP and its head Jiang Zemin launched the unprecedented persecution against Falun Gong practitioners who believe in "Truthfulness, Compassion, Forbearance." During the course of Falun Gong practitioners' anti-persecution efforts and truth-clarification over the past eight years, the facts of the April 25 Appeal have often become one of the key points for people to understand the truth of this evil persecution.

On April 25, over ten thousand Falun Gong practitioners spontaneously and peacefully gathered at the State Council Appeals Office of the Chinese central government to remind the government that Falun Gong practitioners should have the right to freedom of belief, freedom to gather and freedom of speech - rights that have been written into the Chinese Constitution. That day can be regarded as a milestone in Falun Gong practitioner's anti-persecution efforts and truth-clarification. On that day, Falun Gong practitioners started the indomitable great journey of exposing the evil and arousing the conscience of the world's people. After the eight-year battle between justice and evil, the CCP is now facing the fate of complete disintegration and destruction, the result of their persecution against just belief.

In order to commemorate this special day, around 10:00 a.m. on April 25, 2007, Danish Falun Gong practitioners gathered in front of the Chinese Embassy to protest against the persecution of Falun Gong. Practitioners from different areas came to support this activity, including an 80-year-old retired Danish citizen, Mr. Bauer, who has come to the Chinese Embassy to protest every day for the past five years, no matter how chilly the winter and regardless of the wind and snow. Other practitioners who joined the April 25 event included business people, university students, and others from many different walks of life.

Danish Falun Gong practitioners have persisted in clarifying the facts in front of the Chinese Embassy every day for the last five years. They use various means to clarify the truth to the embassy staff and passers-by. This uninterrupted effort of exposing the evil and clarifying the truth has received many people's admiration and support. Along with the CCP's evil nature being exposed to the world's people, now not only western people often show their support to Dafa practitioners, but also Chinese people have dared to come forward to read the display boards and truth-clarification pictures, receive truth-clarification materials and some have even quit the CCP on the spot.

The Danish Dafa practitioners indicated that the daily protest in front of the Chinese Embassy will continue until the day the persecution is ended.
