Czech Edition of the Minghui Website Launched

Feb. 7, 2024 |   By a Falun Dafa practitioner in the Czech Republic

(Minghui.org) The Czech edition of the Minghui website (https://cs.minghui.org/) was officially launched in February 2024. We hope that it will serve as a platform for practitioners to exchange experiences and introduce Falun Dafa to the Czech Republic. This is the 23rd language that the main Chinese website has been translated into.

Located in central Europe, Czechoslovakia has a long, eventful history. It became an Eastern Bloc communist state in 1948. In the years leading up to the 1990's, communist regimes fell one after another throughout Eastern Europe. The Czech Republic has been a democratic country since 1992. The communist regime had ravaged the country for more than four decades prior to that.

With a population of just under 11 million, the Czech Republic is a mid-sized European country. This area was once a cultural center of Europe and played an important role in science and technology, as well as music and other cultural contributions.

After Falun Dafa was introduced to the Czech Republic in 2000, an increasing number of people began to practice. This led to the establishment of Falun Dafa group exercise sites in over 30 cities, including Prague, Brno, Ostrava, Plzeň, and České Budějovice.

Practitioners participate in various events to clarify the facts about the persecution in China. They also participate in cultural festivals and play the waist drums and perform lotus flower dances, and dragon dances in major cities throughout the country as well as other countries in Europe.

The European Falun Dafa Experience Sharing Conference has been held twice in Prague as well as in other locations in the Czech Republic. Practitioners have met with government officials, urging them to help end the persecution of Falun Dafa practitioners in China, including the regime’s crime of forced organ harvesting. The Senate of the Parliament of the Czech Republic passed a resolution in 2019, calling to end the persecution of Falun Dafa in China. In addition, the Czech Senate Committee on Education, Science, Culture, Human Rights, and Petitions passed resolutions in both 2012 and 2021 calling to end to the brutality.
