Finland: TV and Newspapers Report on Practitioners' Appeal in front of the Chinese Embassy (Photos)
(Clearwisdom.net) On the weekend of 19th and 20th July, Finnish Falun Gong practitioners held activities in Helsinki, the capital of Finland, to let people know that it has been exactly 4 years since Jiang Zemin, former President of the People's Republic of China, started his persecution against Falun Gong. This persecution has claimed the lives of many victims, estimated in their thousands, put hundreds of thousands of Chinese citizens in labor camps and prisons, and forced millions to live without basic human rights. The source of this persecution is Jiang Zemin, and the message after four year of such brutal persecution is "Bring Jiang Zemin to Justice". After launching a lawsuit against him in Chicago, Falun Gong practitioners are going to bring Jiang to justice and expose his evil deeds to the whole world.
Finnish Falun Gong practitioners held their first event next to Helsinki railway station on Saturday 19th. With large information boards portraying the persecution in both English and Finnish, accompanied by flyers handed out by practitioners, the different issues regarding Falun Gong and the persecution became known to countless passers-by. Many people stopped to read the display boards, to talk with the practitioners, to express their support, and to sign a petition calling for an end to the persecution and to bring Jiang Zemin to justice.
On the early morning of Sunday 20th, practitioners gathered in the front the Chinese embassy in Helsinki to hold a day long peaceful appeal. With banners and display boards, the practitioners attracted the interest of not only local people, but the staff of the embassy as well. A reporter from one of the largest TV channels in Finland came to interview the practitioners at the embassy. Later a story about the appeal appeared in newspapers as well.
