Braving the cold and snow, Falun Gong practitioners in Bulgaria’s capital of Sofia talked to the public at the central metro station near Sofia University to inform them of the persecution of Falun Gong in China.
At the December 29 event, practitioners also collected signatures in support of the victims who are suing former Chinese dictator Jiang Zemin for initiating the persecution of Falun Gong.
A young woman stopped with her baby and signed the petition, explaining that she had received a flyer before and researched the persecution online. She wished the practitioners good luck with their mission.
A man in his sixties wanted to know more about Jiang and why he should be prosecuted. Learning that Jiang was head of the Chinese Communist Party, he signed the petition without any further hesitation.
Young and old, many people stopped in the cold to show their support for Falun Gong and continued on their way with warm smiles on their faces.
