On April 26, 2011, Falun Gong practitioners in Hague held an event in front of the Chinese Embassy to commemorate the 12th anniversary of the April 25 appeal.
April 26 was the first working day after the Easter holiday. Many people lined up in front of the embassy for business. Many of them stopped to watch the exercise demonstration, took Falun Gong informational materials and read the banners. Police officers on duty read the informational materials in Dutch. A local reporter came to cover the event.
The embassy opened at 9 a.m. When the embassy officers found that the Chinese people coming for business were paying attention to the Falun Gong practitioners and had read their informational materials, the embassy informed those in line that the embassy was going to close. An embassy officer said that the reason for the closure was because Falun Gong practitioners were protesting outside. A Chinese lady spoke up loudly, “They protest peacefully and don’t affect your business. I spent more than two hours to come here today. I had to request a leave from my supervisor to come here. Why don’t you process my passport application?” The embassy officer came out and said in a low voice, “Please wait here.” He went in and came back with the lady’s passport. Dutch guards and police officers on duty saw the scene and understood that the CCP officials and staff are afraid of people learning the facts about Falun Gong.
