Screening of documentary “Free China” at Italian Parliament.

The documentary told stories of two Falun Gong practitioners who were persecuted by the CCP for their faith in Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance. The Falun Gong practitioners' steadfastness, courage and persistence touched the audience. The main characters and producer of the documentary talked with the audience remotely after the screening.

There were human right lawyers, doctors and members of human rights organizations among the audience. One human rights lawyer said that he hadn't heard of the persecution or the organ-harvesting before he watched the documentary. He strongly supported activities exposing the crime. More people should know about the atrocities happening in China. A doctor specializing in liver disease said that he was shocked by the organ-harvesting. He expressed support for the Falun Gong practitioners' freedom of belief.

The chairman of the Libya Citizens Committee said he had heard about the persecution a long time ago, but this was the first time he had heard about the brutal organ harvesting. He said that the world shouldn't remain silent to such an atrocity.

The attendees thanked the Falun Gong practitioners and volunteers of NTDTV for the screening, which gave them an opportunity to learn about the facts.
