(Minghui.org) Celebrations for King Carl XVI Gustaf’s 50th anniversary were held in the capital Stockholm on September 15 and 16, 2023. Falun Dafa practitioners held activities on Mynttorget (the Coin Square) near the Royal Palace in central Stockholm and in front of the Nobel Prize Museum during the two-day event, which drew many passersby.

The grand events were attended by members of Sweden’s royal family. Hundreds of thousands of people watched the parade as the King and Queen passed through the streets of Stockholm in a horse-drawn carriage. The king’s motorcade passed through many scenic spots such as the bustling city centre. Thousands of people lined the streets to congratulate him.

Practitioners held activities to tell people about the CCP’s persecution and collected signatures at Mynttorget near the Royal Palace of Stockholm on September 15, 2023.

People who participated in the celebration were drawn by the peaceful music as practitioners did the Falun Dafa exercises, and some learned them on the spot. Many people accepted flyers and talked with practitioners to learn more about Falun Dafa and the Chinese Communist Party’s (CCP) persecution of the spiritual discipline, and some signed the petition calling to end the persecution.
