Austria: Falun Gong Activities Held in Two Cities
(Minghui.org) Falun Gong practitioners held truth-clarification activities before the Christian holiday of Pentecost, which is celebrated the 49th day (the seventh Sunday) after Easter Sunday, on Saturday, May 30, 2020. The events were held in the City of Graz, the capital of the State of Styria, and Sankt Pölten, the capital of the State of Lower Austria.
Falun Gong, also known as Falun Dafa, is a traditional spiritual practice which originated in China. It is now practiced in over 100 countries across the world. The Chinese Communist Party (CCP) launched the persecution in 1999.
The coronavirus pandemic has caused China to become a subject of discussion again. The truth-clarification activities on Saturday let many people know of the CCP’s human rights violations, especially the CCP’s state-sanctioned organ harvesting from live Falun Gong practitioners for lucrative profit.
The practitioners distributed information about Falun Gong and the persecution, and also collected signatures to condemn the CCP. Many passersby signed the petition.
A clothing designer from Ghana recently moved to Graz. He said he knew how evil the CCP is, and he signed the petition without hesitation.
Two Chinese students learned about the CCP-staged Tiananmen self-immolation, how Falun Gong is practiced around the world, and the difference between the CCP and China. They renounced their Party memberships and thanked the practitioner for the information.
“I saw you in front of the Chinese Embassy in Vienna every week,” one woman said. She said children took paper-folded lotus flowers there. They were happy.
Many passersby paused to watch the exercise demonstration in Sankt Pölten. Some wished to learn the exercises.
