As Falun Gong practitioners from across the U.S rallied on Capitol Hill on Thursday, Robert Herman, vice-president of Freedom House, noted in his remarks: “The Falun Gong story in China is not just one of victims and survivors of horrific persecution. It is also a story of unshakeable faith, of perseverance and resilience. ...New opportunities are emerging to push back against government repression targeting Falun Gong.”
Falun Gong practitioners and supporters gathered in front of the Chinese Embassy in Ottawa on July 19 to condemn the human rights abuses of the Chinese regime and called to end its persecution of Falun Gong. Those who spoke in support of practitioners included Jack MacLaren, provincial parliament member from Ontario; Alex Neve, Secretary General of Amnesty International Canada; and former Canadian parliament member and diplomat David Kilgour.

Practitioners and supporters held a series of activities at Martin Place, a financial center, and government locations in Sydney, Australia on July 19, to commemorate 18 years of peaceful resistance to the persecution.
