(Clearwisdom.net) December 10, 2008 marked International Human Rights Day. Falun Gong practitioners in central and northern England held an activity in front of the Chinese Consulate in Manchester, to remember the Falun Gong practitioners who have been mercilessly murdered by the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) in its nine-year persecution of Falun Gong. They also called on the Chinese people to quit the CCP and its affiliated organizations.

Falun Gong practitioners peacefully protest against the CCP's persecution outside the Chinese Consulate in Manchester

The activity began at 9:00 a.m. and concluded after 12:00 p.m. The practitioners peacefully did the exercises, distributed truth-clarification flyers to passersby and to those who came to the Chinese Consulate for visa issues.

For nine years, Falun Gong practitioners have peacefully resisted the persecution in China. Through their efforts, the world's people have recognized the practitioners' peacefulness, rationality, great compassion and tolerance, and have come to clearly see the CCP's brutality. Outside the Chinese Consulate, most of the Chinese people who came in and out of the consulate smiled at the practitioners, and some people asked the practitioners to help them quit the CCP and its affiliated organizations.
