Finland: Falun Gong Practitioners Protest the Chinese Communist Party Persecution in Front of the Chinese Embassy on July 20 (Photo)
(Clearwisdom.net) At nine a.m. on July 20, 2006, Finnish Falun Gong practitioners gathered in front of the Chinese Embassy in protest against the seven-year persecution of Falun Gong practitioners with their firm belief in the universal principle of Truthfulness, Compassion, Forbearance."
The practitioners displayed banners which read, "Falun Dafa Is Good," and "Strongly Condemn the CCPs Harvesting Organs from Living Falun Gong Practitioners for Sale and Burning the Bodies." Meanwhile, some of the practitioners handed Falun Gong truth clarifying materials to foreigners and Chinese people who came to the embassy to apply for their visas. At the same time, a protest letter was being read aloud in Finnish and Chinese to passersby and the Embassy staff.
The protest letter read as follows.
Since July 20, 1999, it has been seven years. During the past seven years, the CCP has inflicted extremely horrifying and inhumane persecution on Falun Gong. Up until now, the verified number of people who have died as a result of the persecution is 3,000. Yet this is just the tip of the iceberg. Since this March, three witnesses have disclosed the CCPs harvesting organs from living practitioners imprisoned in its forced labor camps and other facilities. In early July, the independent investigation group, consisting of former Canadian member of Parliament, Mr. David Kilgour, and human rights lawyer, David Matas, released an independent report. The report further verified the existence of the horrifying crime, which is a fact we are reluctant to believe.
We are unable to know the exact number of the innocent people whose organs were removed when they were still alive. Under that enormous black curtain, how huge is the black market of trading organs? We have no detailed understanding of it. But we know that this is "a form of evil that we have yet to see on this planet," just as David Matas, one member of the Canadian independent investigation group, commented.
No words can depict the evil of the brutal violence happening in China ruled by the Chinese Communist Regime. One of the investigation members pointed out that this kind of evil had never before existed on earth. The persecution of Falun Gong is a crime against human nature, exactly a crime against humanity.
The persecution poses a challenge to individual human nature, and also tests the bottom line of each persons morality and conscience. This is not a political problem, nor is it a domestic problem as usually claimed by the CCP. The persecution launched by the state authorities is a crime against humanity, while the systematic murdering to harvest human organs is a direct challenge to human morality and conscience.
We protest the brutal violence condoned by the CCP. We advise each Chinese with your remaining conscience and kindness to understand the CCPs evil nature, to defect from the CCP organizations so as to choose for yourself a correct future position regarding the persecution. Meanwhile, we call on people from all walks of life and the international community to help stop the evildoing and end the persecution.
