Some sixty Czech followers of the spiritual movement Falun Gong gathered outside the Chinese Embassy in Prague on Friday for a silent protest against human rights abuse in China and the persecution of Falun Gong followers.
The protest –at which most participants quietly meditated – aimed to raise awareness of the fact that Falun Gong followers in China are killed in connection with the illegal trade in organs. Some participants held up photos of people killed for this purpose, while others had their mouths taped over.
There were participants dressed as doctors and Chinese police who acted out scenes of the atrocities taking place against Falun Gong followers.
