United Kingdom: Exposing the Persecution Against Falun Gong to the People of Huddersfield (Photos)
(Clearwisdom.net) On the 30th of September 2006, practitioners of Falun Gong came from various parts of England to take part in activities at Huddersfield in the North of England. A table was set up containing petitions for passers-by to sign to help stop the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) from harvesting organs from living Falun Gong practitioners in China. Alongside the petitions sat various leaflets and Video-CDs exposing the CCP's crimes against Falun Gong and providing information about Falun Gong as a traditional form of Chinese exercise that benefits one's body and mind.
To the left of the table, practitioners took turns to demonstrate the five sets of Falun Gong exercises for passers-by, attracting much curiosity and attention. On the other side of the table stood a set of large posters exposing the human rights crimes committed by the CCP.

The weather continued to stay warm throughout the day, providing a good environment for people to stop and find out more about the practice. Such a situation meant that there was a good chance to speak to people one-on-one, face-to-face so as to really give them a chance of finding out the truth and answering many questions. Many people were shocked and indignant upon hearing just what is going on in China Others nodded in silence before going to sign the petition. Some people stopped to find out more about the exercises and the cultivation side of Falun Gong. Some people had a quick go at the exercises to find out how it feels. All in all, the day's activities were a success, leaving a large group of people clear as to what Falun Gong is and understanding the facts behind the persecution.
