German Practitioners Clarify the Truth about the Persecution to Groups of Tourists from China
"What I said is an opinion shared by a lot of people!"
Almost without exception, you can see Chinese tourist groups in Frankfurt's Roman Square every day. I was distributing Dafa material to several Chinese tourists there a couple of days ago. They took a look at the material, and said, "We have seen this already. Do you have anything new?" Then a man in his middle age asked me to walk to the side with him (I found out later on that he is a government officer). "Falun Gong, I have been thinking of having a chat with you alone. As a matter of fact, I have a very clear understanding of what Falun Gong is in my heart. I am disgusted with what is going on in China. Let me tell you this is not just my personal view. It is an opinion shared by a lot of people." He stopped for a while, and repeated once more with a stressed tone: "What I said is an opinion shared by a lot of people!" At the moment of his departure, he said to me sincerely: "You have to be persistent!"
"I want to learn Falun Gong!"
Once, I met a big Chinese tourist group that consisted of more than thirty people. The members of this group came from various places in China. I gave them various Falun Gong truth clarification materials. One of them said, "I have never seen the exercises of Falun Gong, could you please show me?" I performed the exercises for them right away. A policeman walked by in front of me. The Chinese man asked nervously, "Do the police allow the practice?" I told him that Falun Gong is legal, and open to the general public in Germany. There are lots of Falun Gong practitioners in Germany, many of whom are German-descendants. I added that Falun Gong has been widely spread in more than 50 countries in the world, that Falun Gong is welcome by governments and citizens everywhere, and that Falun Gong has received more than 700 awards so far.
They accepted the materials happily. Many came up with questions about "suicide, killing, and levitation." I told them all of these were simply false incriminations and evil slander. One of them told me, "I do not practice Falun Gong, but I sympathize with you." A young man beside him followed, "I want to learn Falun Gong regardless! Do you have any materials about learning the exercises?"
They were still reluctant to leave even after the time scheduled for their departure. They asked me to show them the exercises one more time. While I followed their request to repeat the exercises, the young man stood beside me and learned in earnest.
When it was time to say good-bye, I asked them to remember, "Falun Dafa is good."
