More Than One Million People Call for an End to the Persecution of Falun Gong (Photos)
On July 25, 2008, the Coalition to Investigate the Persecution of Falun Gong (CIPFG) handed over letters that were collected from political leaders, Members of Parliament, lawyers, and doctors in the “Millions of Signatures Global Campaign” to the International Olympic Committee (IOC). These letters expressed support for the global campaign to expose and end the persecution of Falun Gong and requested the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) to stop the persecution.
1,215,793 signatures from 131 countries, photos of signature collection events across the world, and a letter to IOC Chairman Jacques Rogge requesting his signature were handed over to the IOC as well. The letter will be submitted to the United Nations Human Rights Council (UNHRC).
