Holland: Anti-Torture Exhibition at City Hall Square in The Hague (Photos)

October 26, 2005 |   By a Falun Gong practitioner in Holland

(Clearwisdom.net) On October 1, 2005, Falun Gong practitioners from Holland and Belgium held an anti-torture exhibition at City Hall Square in The Hague. They collected petition signatures from people who wanted to express support for Holland's Falun Gong practitioners' lawsuit against Jiang Zemin, who is the prime culprit behind the systematic persecution of Falun Gong practitioners.

Demonstrating the exercises

Reenactment of torture methods

People stop and watch

Gentle sunshine shone down and it was a pleasant autumn day. In the centre of the square were rows of beautiful fountains. In front of the fountains stood Falun Gong practitioners dressed in yellow and demonstrating the five sets of Falun Gong exercises. On their left, two ladies were locked up in a cage and tied onto a torture instrument called a "tiger-bench". On their white clothes were bloodstains and on their faces were scars. Actually, they were simulating methods of torture which are used against Falun Gong practitioners in China's prisons. Behind them was someone dressed as a policeman and waving a baton.

While passing by the square, people stopped and looked. Simple and clear banners and vivid demonstrations of simulated torture helped people to easily understand the persecution happening in China. Many people immediately asked, "Why?" Practitioners explained: "The reason why the persecution happened is because Jiang Zemin was jealous of Falun Gong's popularity and the evil nature of the CCP cannot stand the principles of "Truthfulness, Compassion and Tolerance" initiated by Falun Gong." People felt shocked at what they believed to be inconceivable.

People sign the petition one after another calling for an end to the persecution

After understanding that signing the petition would help to end the persecution, people signed one after another to express their support. Among them were many foreign tourists. Some said, "Well done!" "I wish you success!" and "Thank you very much!"
