(Clearwisdom.net) On April 25, 2002, Montreal Dafa practitioners gathered in Zhongshan Park in Chinatown to commemorate the 4.25 appeal. The practitioners practiced the exercises, sent forth righteous thoughts and distributed truth-clarifying literature to passersby. They also played truth-clarifying television programs introducing Falun Gong and exposing the Jiang regime's staged self-immolation incident on Tiananmen Square. After dark, the practitioners started a candlelight vigil to commemorate those practitioners tortured to death in China.

To commemorate this great day in history, to clarify the truth of the persecution against Dafa practitioners in China for the last three years, to raise awareness that the persecution is continuing and everyday there are Dafa practitioners either detained or tortured to death, and to mourn the over 400 documented and many more undocumented practitioners tortured to death in China by the Jiang regime, Seattle Dafa practitioners held a candlelight vigil beside a lake starting at 7:30 p.m. on April 25, 2002. Recently, they have been sending forth righteous thoughts continuously at the top of every hour like Dafa practitioners worldwide to eliminate the evil.

There were many passersby. They were moved by the practitioners' peacefulness and firm righteous thoughts. Many passersby accepted the truth-clarifying literature that we offered to them. Some of them greeted the practitioners with Heshi or holding a fist in front of their chest like ancient Chinese. Some of them said sincerely, "Thank you."
