Suomen Kuvalehti (Finnish Magazine) Reports on Falun Gong Practitioners' Efforts to Stop the Persecution (Photos)
(Clearwisdom.net) On September 7, 2007, the well-known Finnish magazine Suomen Kuvalehti published a report on how Helsinki Falun Gong practitioners are exposing the evil nature of the Chinese Communist Party to the Finnish people and tourists from all over the world. The article focused on a protest against the inhuman persecution of Falun Gong practitioners in Esplanade Park on August 18, 2007. There was also an interview with a Falun Gong practitioner named Sinikka (this issue of the magazine topic is about the protesters in Helsinki).
In the interview, Sinikka said she had never protested before, until seven years ago when she started learning Falun Gong. At that time, she didn't understand why people who practiced Falun Gong would be persecuted. She did not know how to talk to strangers, but she thought she must do something. A year ago she moved to Helsinki. When she lived in Jyvskyl before, it rained every day during the summer, but she went out to do the exercises every day and to clarify the truth (explaining the facts about Falun Gong practitioners in China being persecuted by the Chinese Communist Party). After coming to Helsinki, she came out to protest more often, every week at the railway station and also at the Chinese Embassy. As long as the persecution does not stop, practitioners will not stop protesting. The Chinese themselves should change the present situation, therefore the goal is to explain the facts to the Chinese tourists.
