July 20, 2017 marks the 18th year that Falun Gong, a peaceful mind-body practice, has been persecuted by the Chinese Communist regime. Every year, Falun Gong practitioners around the word hold events to raise awareness of the ongoing atrocities in China and to commemorate those who have lost their lives in the persecution. Practitioners in the Bay Area held a major march on July 15 that met with great public support.
Almedalen Week is an important forum in Swedish politics held each year in Visby, a city located on Sweden’s island of Gotland. It is a place for public seminars, speeches, and other political activities. Two Members of Parliament came to a Falun Gong event to speak in support of efforts to end the persecution and organ harvesting atrocities in China. Thousands had the chance to learn more about Falun Gong.
Falun Gong practitioners have come to Sun Yat-sen Memorial Hall every day for the past nine years, to tell Chinese tourists the facts about the practice and the persecution in China. Tourists from China who have misguided understandings about the practice are able to learn the truth about the practice, whose guiding principles are “Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance.”
After a march commemorating 18 years of peaceful resistance to the persecution, Falun Gong practitioners, elected officials and community leaders held a rally to call for an end to the human rights abuses in China.
