(Clearwisdom.net) Swiss Falun Gong practitioners went to St. Gallen to let local people know about Falun Gong and the campaign of genocide that the Chinese Communist Party is waging against the practice. The persecution has lasted almost six years and has taken the lives of over 1,400 people.

This appeal actually had a special purpose. One of the local practitioners is a student at St. Gallen University. The student's mother is currently imprisoned in China because she practices Falun Gong. The practitioners collected petition signatures calling for this innocent lady to be released immediately and unconditionally.

The practitioners organized this event at the last minute and did not have much time to prepare their information stall. However, it was enough to have the sincere wish to help fellow practitioners in China, who are under threat of persecution, torture and even death for wanting to practice the Falun Gong exercises and improve their moral standards in accordance with the Falun Gong teachings of "Truth, Compassion, Forbearance." The impact of the information stall was very positive and many people came to find out more. They took leaflets, read the posters in detail and learned how former Chinese leader Jiang Zemin launched this suppression that uses torture, violence and other forms of persecution in cruel attempts to force Falun Gong practitioners to give up their beliefs.
