(Minghui.org) Falun Gong practitioners gathered at Dam Square in Amsterdam, capital of the Netherlands, on July 20, 2014, to inform people about the practice and to raise awareness of the 15-year brutal persecution of Falun Gong.

At the square adjacent to the Royal Palace in Amsterdam, practitioners demonstrated the exercises, held up banners, and displayed posters containing information about torture endured by practitioners at the Chinese Communist Party's hands.

After learning about the facts, many signed petitions calling to end the persecution.
