(Minghui.org) Falun Gong practitioners in France introduced this traditional Chinese spiritual discipline and exposed the Chinese Communist Party's (CCP) persecution of the practice during an event on Human Rights Plaza in Paris on August 6, 2017. Many visitors learned about the persecution in China and condemned the CCP's atrocity of harvesting organ from living prisoners of conscience, the majority of whom are Falun Gong practitioners. Large numbers of people signed a petition calling for an end to the forced organ harvesting.
