(Clearwisdom.net) Amnesty International and the National Autonomy University of Mexico sponsored an exhibition of traditional Chinese paintings by Zhang Cuiying in Mexico City on 21-23 October, before the APEC Summit.

Ms. Zhang Cuiying, world-renowned artist and citizen of Australia, has been a tireless ambassador for human rights since the conclusion of her eight-month, illegal incarceration in 4 different prisons for appealing the ban of Falun Gong in China.

After Amnesty International learned that Zhang Cuiying and other Falun Gong practitioners were being tortured in China, they became very concerned about the situation of human rights there. They hoped that by sponsoring Zhang Cuiying's painting exhibition in Mexico City before APEC they could help people understand more about Falun Gong and stop the persecution in China.

The inner beauty displayed in the paintings and the experience of Zhang Cuiying's persecution manifest the principles of Falun Dafa -- Truthfulness, Compassion and Tolerance -- and highlight the contrast between kindness and evil.

The practitioners held a "Peaceful Journey of Falun Dafa " photo exhibition at the same time.
