Over 2,000 Rally in San Francisco—People from All Walks of Life Call for Ending the Persecution of Falun Gong
A rally held in front of San Francisco’s city hall on Tuesday, themed “Together End the Persecution of Falun Gong,” focused on newly-revealed facts about the state-sanctioned organ harvesting from Falun Gong practitioners in China, and called for bringing former communist head Jiang Zemin to justice for his role in the persecution, which has continued for 17 years.
Nearly 6,000 practitioners from 33 countries attended the conference, the largest such gathering ever held in San Francisco. Seventeen practitioners shared the experiences and understandings they have gained through following the principles of Falun Dafa: Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance. Numerous marches, rallies and other events rounded out almost a week of related activities.
The City by the Bay saw more than 4,000 people from around the world participating in a grand march to raise awareness about Falun Gong and the persecution of this peaceful spiritual discipline in China. The march drew tremendous public support from both Westerners as well as Chinese. Said one Chinese man, "Falun Gong is the hope of China. I fully support you!”
