(Minghui.org) Falun Dafa practitioners held three events near the famous Acropolis in Athens on December 5, 10 and 12 to mark Human Rights Day. They exposed the Chinese Communist Party’s (CCP) persecution of Falun Dafa and organ harvesting from practitioners while they are still alive. They called on people to learn the truth and help stop the persecution.

Athens, the capital of Greece, is one of the oldest cities in the world with a recorded history of more than 3,000 years. It is the economic, financial, industrial, political and cultural centre of Greece. Athens is known as the cradle of Western civilisation.

From the fifth to the fourth centuries BC, Athens had a significant cultural and political influence on European and world culture. Later, due to plague and war, the Athenian civilisation disappeared, and only some historic relics and works of art remain. The Parthenon Temple of the goddess Athena in the Acropolis is a symbol of Western culture.
