People of Manhattan Start to Spread the Facts about Falun Gong

After over two months of truth clarification efforts, more and more people in Manhattan have learned about Falun Gong and the persecution that is taking place in China. Even though people pass by Falun Gong practitioners' truth clarification spots in a hurry on the way to work or on the way back home, they have been thinking why all this is happening.

Some people told practitioners that they have noticed the anti-torture exhibitions at different locations of Manhattan and they have read the materials and display boards, but they still would like to come back and take a closer look. Some people brought their families and made a special trip to the anti-torture exhibition spots over the weekends.

They asked how they could help and what exactly they should do. Practitioners told them that they could help tell more people about the persecution, then more people will learn about it and more people will step forward to help stop the persecution. This will create a domino effect.

Some New Yorkers look at the torture and persecution from the perspective of the September 11th tragedy. They believe that terrorism should be stopped and the dictator who created the persecution should not be tolerated. Some commented that if more people practiced Falun Gong, less people would engage in terrorist activities. Others commented that if people are being tortured to death for their belief in Truth-Compassion-Tolerance, this is exposing the evil nature of the dictator and his followers. Other commented that the terrifying torture has lasted for over 5 years, and the key reason is that the leaders (Jiang and his followers) are engaging in state sanctioned terrorism.

A high school board requests 150 teachers to learn Falun Gong

We will give a copy of the materials to my Chinese colleagues...

Some white-collar professionals in New York told English speaking practitioners that they have read the Falun Gong materials, and asked if they could have a few more copies to give to their Chinese colleagues. They also said they would like to tell their Chinese colleagues that their views on Falun Gong are wrong and they should stop repeating the official Chinese propaganda defaming Falun Gong.

I have written a letter to our President ...

An individual came and told practitioners that he had written to the U.S. President, the Foreign Affairs Department and Human Rights organizations, requesting their help to stop the torture and the persecution of Falun Gong practitioners' freedom of belief.
