(Minghui.org) In a few hours, over 400 people at Arthur Square in Belfast, Northern Ireland, signed the petition calling to end the persecution of Falun Gong in China. A man said to a Falun Gong practitioner, “You are doing the greatest thing! Please keep it up,” adding that the international society has the responsibility to end the crimes of the Chinese communist regime.

Ms. Yang from China said, “Falun Gong is great. My best friend practices it, too.” She added, “A belief that is legal outside of China faces brutal torture and persecution in China. The Chinese Communist Party is horrible.” She and her son renounced their memberships in the communist organizations.

A woman said that she had encountered Falun Gong at various places in the United Kingdom. She stressed that as long as the persecution has not ended, she will continue to condemn it and support practitioners in their efforts.

Some locals learned about Falun Gong for the first time. They were shocked to learn that a group of innocent people had been persecuted by the Chinese communist regime for 16 years. Many were also interested in learning the Falun Gong exercises.
