(Clearwisdom.net) On Saturday, June 7, 2008, Falun Gong practitioners in Helsinki held an activity on Mannerheiminti Avenue in the city center to promote Falun Gong and call on people to help stop the Chinese Communist Party's (CCP) nine-year brutal persecution of Falun Gong practitioners in China. Practitioners displayed banners worded "Falun Dafa is Good," and "Immediately Stop the Persecution of Falun Gong," and set up posters introducing Falun Gong. They also prepared petition forms to call for an end to the persecution, and provided Falun Gong truth-clarification materials in various languages.
