(Minghui.org) Practitioners of Falun Gong from Bucharest, Romania, held an activity in front of Cotroceni Afi Pallace Mall on May 3, introducing this ancient practice to the public, and exposing the 16-year-long persecution in China.

Practitioners displayed banners, distributed materials, and demonstrated the gentle exercises.

A steady stream of passersby stopped to sign a petition addressed to the UN Commissioner for Human Rights, which called for an end to the persecution and the communist regime's brutal organ harvesting crimes against Falun Gong.
