(Clearwisdom.net) On August 13, 2005, Dutch Falun Gong practitioners held a photo exhibition in Deventer City to disclose the Chinese Communist Party's cruel persecution of Falun Gong. On this Saturday the number of passers-by was particularly high. The brutality of the persecution shown in the photos was in vivid contrast to the demonstration of the five peaceful Falun Gong exercises, which attracted much attention.

Looking at the photos and learning about the persecution

Many people who attended this activity learned about the persecution of Falun Gong for the first time. Some said that they would browse the Internet and sign to support the campaign against the persecution of Falun Gong and some wished Falun Gong practitioners success. One person working for the Dutch Government said that he would not only sign his name to support Falun Gong but also tell his friends far away in Shanghai.

On one occasion, when a crowd of people came over to watch the demonstration of the five sets of Falun Gong exercises, a practitioner told them that Falun Gong is a peaceful practice that teaches people to cultivate their mind and body based on the principles of the nature of the universe, Truthfulness, Compassion, Forbearance. "In China, however, people are persecuted because they practice Falun Gong. Tens of thousands of people are sent to prison and more than two thousand people have been persecuted to death. We came here today to let the public know the truth of this persecution and to further stop this persecution. We hope to have your support." Hearing this, people were shocked and many of them asked for informational leaflets.
