Sweden: Practitioners Protest Persecution During the Visit of Yu Zhengsheng, CCP Political Consultative Conference Chairman (Photos)
(Minghui.org) During his visit to Sweden on June 1-3, 2013, Yu Zhengsheng, Chinese Communist Party (CCP) Politburo Standing Committee member, also chair of the Political Consultative Conference, saw Falun Gong practitioners' protesting the 14-year-long persecution. Practitioners stood in front of the Chinese Consulate in Gothenburg and in front of the Royal Palace in Stockholm where Yu met with Sweden's King.
Practitioners came out to compassionately remind Yu, “Perpetrators in the persecution of Falun Gong will be seriously punished, no matter where they go or how long it will take.”
Yu Zhengsheng has long been active in following former CCP Party chief Jiang Zemin, who initiated the persecution of Falun Gong.
Practitioners also held a truth clarification photo exhibit, to call upon the Swedish Government to address the CCP's persecution of Falun Gong.
Yu Zhengsheng Actively Involved in the Persecution of Falun Gong
When Yu Zhengsheng worked as Hubei Provincial Party Secretary, according to an incomplete statistics, more than 200 Falun Gong practitioners died as a result of the persecution. “Hubei Province was one of the provinces where the persecution of Falun Gong is the most severe,” stated by the World Organization to Investigate the Persecution of Falun Gong (WOIPFG) in its notice issued in 2004 on the investigation of Hubei Provincial Party Secretary Yu Zhengsheng and other officials.
After he was transferred to Shanghai to work as Party secretary in 2007, Yu Zhengsheng continued persecuting Falun Gong. In the run-up to the 2008 Beijing Olympics, Shanghai was one of the places where the largest number of Falun Gong practitioners were arrested in China.
Practitioners Peacefully Protest the CCP's Persecution in Front of the Royal Palace
Practitioners arrived at the Royal Palace before 9:00 a.m. When Yu Zhengsheng's motorcade drove by at around 10:00 a.m., practitioners held up banners on which were written, “Falun Dafa Is Good,” “Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance,” and “Bring Jiang Zemin and His Hooligans to Justice for the Persecution of Falun Gong.”
Practitioners protested the 14-year brutal persecution and called upon the Swedish Government and people to work together to stop the CCP's atrocities of harvesting organs from living Falun Gong practitioners, and to put an end to the most inhuman catastrophe in human history.
Tourists Learn the Truth and Support Ending the Persecution
Many tourists paused to carefully read the messages on the banners, and some talked with practitioners. One lady told a Western practitioner in English that she had learned about Falun Gong in Hong Kong. “I'm happy to see you here! You've done a great job to protest this way and also tell others what the truth is!” she said.
A man read the message on the banners and then said in English, “I agree!”
Swedish police officers were friendly with these peaceful protestors. They smiled at practitioners and read the banners. They allowed practitioners to stand in highly visible locations to display their banners, and would not let anyone interrupt them.
When the CCP delegation's motorcade left the royal palace at around 11:00 a.m., they once again passed by the practitioners' banners.
A Message to Yu Zhengsheng and Related Evildoers
The activity coordinator said, “We are here to pass a message to Yu Zhengsheng. The Criminal High Court of Argentina remanded a case to the Federal Court of Criminal Appeals on April 17, 2013, ordering it to reopen the trial against the former CCP Party chief Jiang Zemin and deputy head of the 610 Office, Luo Gan. The two have been charged with the torture and genocide of Falun Gong practitioners in China.”
“Perpetrators in the persecution of Falun Gong will be seriously punished, no matter where they go or how long it takes.
“We hope that the perpetrators will expose the evil deeds committed behind the scenes to atone for their crimes in order to secure leniency at the final judgment.”
