(Minghui.org) Despite the increasing number of coronavirus infection cases in Finland, local Falun Dafa practitioners continued to raise awareness of the Chinese communist regime’s persecution of the meditation practice.

Practitioners held activities at the Kamppi shopping mall in Helsinki on Saturday, March 14, 2020. There were strong winds that day, and not many people were out on the streets. But when practitioners began to demonstrate the calming and peaceful exercises, people stopped to watch and listen.

Practitioners demonstrate the second Falun Dafa exercise.

Passersby sign the petition calling for an end to the persecution.

Two men stop to learn more about Falun Dafa.

Signing the Petition

Outi, a teacher signed the petition to stop the atrocities in China. When practitioners asked if she had heard about Falun Dafa, she said she had. Her daughter asked what this was all about. Outi said: “This is to stop the taking of organs without consent from prisoners of conscience. You can also sign the petition to show your support.”

Alica and her two friends from Spain asked for information about Falun Dafa. As Alica's friends did not speak English, she translated the practitioner's explanation. All three decided to sign the petition. Alica thanked practitioners for telling them about the persecution.

A man stopped to sign the petition and was asked if he knew what it was about. He answered, “I know about Falun Dafa. I stand with you.”
