Sweden: Locals and Tourists Decry the CCP's Persecution of Falun Gong in China (Photos)
(Minghui.org) On August 18, 2013, Falun Gong practitioners in Sweden held a signature drive at Mynttorget Square, in the capital city of Stockholm, calling for an end to the Chinese Communist Party's (CCP) illegal practice of organ harvesting from living Falun Gong practitioners.
Mynttorget Square, close to the Royal Palace, is one of the country's primary tourist destinations. Passersby on the square stopped and read the practitioners' informational display boards exposing the CCP's brutal persecution of Falun Gong in China. Many were shocked and eagerly signed the practitioners' petition, showing their contempt for the Chinese regime's crimes against humanity.
“We must stop these crimes!” exclaimed a Swedish man, before signing the petition. “Letting the world know about the Chinese regime's crimes against humanity is admirable!”
“Let's all sign this petition!” a Turkish man told his family after finding out about the Party's persecution of Falun Gong. “We cannot allow this atrocity to continue!”
A Canadian couple stopped by the informational display, and the wife signed the petition. Then they both left. About two hours later, the husband returned to the square, carefully read the display boards, and he, too, signed the petition.
A family of four Chinese tourists were very surprised to see the practitioners' display boards. When practitioners asked if they knew about the Party's crimes of organ harvesting, the father replied, “We always knew that the Party was bad, but we could never have imagined that they were capable of doing something this evil!”
After listening to a practitioner discuss the true nature of the Party, two members of the family agreed to withdraw from the Communist Youth League, an affiliate of the CCP.
The strong support and heartfelt encouragement from passersby made the Swedish practitioners all the more determined to continue exposing the persecution.
