Mexico: Falun Dafa Practitioners Raise Awareness of 20 Years of Persecution in China
(Minghui.org) Twenty years have passed since the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) launched its brutal campaign against Falun Gong on July 20, 1999. On the anniversary of this solemn date, practitioners in Mexico held activities in various cities to raise awareness of China's human rights atrocities and condemn the CCP's persecution.
Mexico has 46 Falun Gong practice sites, so practitioners in many cities came out in protest of the persecution in China.
