About 1,000 Falun Gong practitioners yesterday gathered in front of Taipei City
Hall to commemorate the 17th anniversary of a peaceful demonstration by more than 10,000 people in Beijing.
The group called on Taiwanese to give more support to their campaign against human rights abuses in China.
Several Falun Gong practitioners held a banner reading “Commemorating the 17th anniversary of the peaceful petition on April 25 of Chinese Falun Gong practitioners,” while others, in yellow uniforms and yellow caps, sat in meditation postures.
“We are commemorating the April 25 peaceful demonstration here today, because though it was a campaign by Falun Gong practitioners in China, it carries very significant meaning for Taiwan as well,” Taiwan Falun Dafa Association president Chang Chin-hwa (張錦華) said. [FULL STORY]
