(Minghui.org) People passing through Piata Unirii, one of the major squares in downtown Bucharest, the capital of Romania, came across something special on Saturday, December 14, 2013. Several volunteers, all Falun Dafa practitioners, were holding an activity to inform the Romanian public of the persecution of Falun Dafa that is happening right now in China.
Many passersby came over after reading the large banner with the words: “S.O.S. Stop Persecuting Falun Gong!” Images of Falun Dafa practitioners who had been tortured in forced labor camps were also displayed. These were effective in exposing the brutality of the persecution.
Besides calling attention to the persecution, practitioners shared the beauty of this traditional cultivation practice. Despite the brutal genocide happening in China, Falun Dafa practitioners hold firm to their peaceful belief in Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance.

Signing a petition to stop the persecution
Intrigued and concerned, passersby stopped to view the display boards and talk to the practitioners to learn more about the situation in China. They were shocked upon learning how brutal and inhuman the persecution actually is.
Some people expressed disgust upon finding out that the communist regime in China goes so far as to harvest the organs from living Falun Dafa practitioners.
The Romanian people, who once lived under totalitarian communist rule for a number of years, are aware that the communist party persecutes all people of belief. Many passersby expressed their support by signing the petition calling for an end to the 14-year-long persecution.
Falun Dafa, also known as Falun Gong, has been embraced and practiced by more than 100 million people in more than 100 countries throughout the world since its first introduction to the public in 1992. It was introduced to Romania in 1998 when the first exercise instruction class was held.
The main book of Falun Dafa Zhuan Falun was translated into Romanian and the Romania Falun Dafa Association was established in 2003.
Practitioners in Romania have made great headway in informing the Romanian public about the peacefulness of Falun Dafa and of the brutal persecution in China.
With more and more people signing petitions and staking a stance upon learning of the persecution, the persecution will be brought to an end sooner.
