France: Welcoming Chinese Tourists at the Airport
(Clearwisdom.net) Thousands of Chinese people arrived in France to join the parade held in the Champs-Elysées area during the Chinese New Year. People who joined the parade were from different cities, provinces, and areas, including workmen, farmers, women, and children. Most of them were coming to France for the first time. It was a good opportunity to explain the facts of the persecution and the true nature of Falun Gong to these precious Chinese people. They have been shackled by the lies of Jiang's group and have not been able to know the truth of Falun Gong. The once in a lifetime trip abroad was very precious opportunity. Therefore, some practitioners decided to help them learn the facts at the point of arrival, the airport.
Because it was forbidden to distribute materials in the airport building, we
clarified the truth by welcoming the Chinese tourists. We made two yellow boards
with red script. One read, "Welcome fellow Chinese countrymen. Please understand
Falun Gong and support Falun Gong with your kind hearts." The other read, "Falun
Dafa is Good." When we held the truth-clarifying boards smiling, walking among
people in the reception area, the boards became the focus of people's eyes.
Chinese people's eyes fell upon the characters, "Falun Dafa Is Good."
1. "Falun Gong is here, too."
A group of tourists slowly pushed their luggage past me. When one Chinese man
saw the board, he could not help but cry out, "Falun Gong is here too!" His
words revealed his delight. [To support its deceitful slander about Falun
Gong, the Jiang regime has hidden the fact that Falun Gong is well-known and
well-respected around the world from the Chinese people. The mere fact that it
is freely practiced, and embraced by other nations is surprising to many Chinese
people and helps dispel the negative views of Falun Gong implanted by the
propaganda in China.]
2. Taking Photos.
A big group of Chinese students entered the reception area. They walked one
by one past the practitioners. They all looked at the content of the boards.
Three of them took photos of the boards. They must want to tell their relatives
and friends in China: Falun Gong is in France!
3. Overseas Chinese swarmed to look at the Falun Gong boards
To avoid some unreasonable harassment from the staff of the Chinese consulate
in the reception area, when the Chinese tourists went through the Customs, a
practitioner held a display board facing the exits. Suddenly, she heard people
behind her say, "Falun Gong! Falun Gong!" She turned her head, and found that a
group of local overseas Chinese who were waiting to welcome the arrivals crowded
around her. She guessed that they wanted to read the contents on the board, so
she turned around and showed them the board. They read it smiling. Some talked
to her. Many of them had already learned the truth. They even told what they
knew to other overseas Chinese who did not quite know the truth. They really
were live media!
3. Stopping the unreasonable harassment with unmoved hearts.
One day, the officials and staff of the Chinese Embassy went to the airport to receive some actors. When they saw us standing at the exit gate of the Customs with the yellow boards in our hands, one of the staff came to us and forcefully pushed us. When pushing us, he fiercely said, "You shouldn't stand here since you aren't receiving people." We said, "We are receiving people. We are receiving our precious Chinese fellow countrymen." Then, they tried to make people from a travel agency remove us. But they did not manage to do it. Afterwards, they made people from other travel agencies stand in front of us, holding the signs high in order to block us. One Chinese boy who was waiting to receive people at the side saw the situation. He felt it was unjust and said, "Don't jostle, everyone! Don't block others." At that time, in our minds we sent forth righteous thoughts, thinking, "Falun Dafa is as solid as diamond. How can you block us? We must let these Chinese people know the facts!" We told people from the Embassy, "You all know that the self-immolation in Tiananmen was fake. Falun Dafa is unjustly wronged..." They became frightened, and said, "You did not apply for permission. Call the police quickly. Don't let them escape." We did not move, but sent forth righteous thoughts. We raised the golden signs higher than our heads. The commotion aroused the attention of many Chinese people who were waiting to receive others. After they looked at the boards, they smiled and nodded their heads.
At this moment, the previous peaceful and tranquil air of the airport was resumed. There was only one thought in our minds, "We want to save them." At that time, one lady who blocked us blamed herself, "I am not willing to hurt others' hearts." A practitioner said to them with a kind heart, "We don't blame you, because you don't know the truth of the persecution. There have been more than 800 Falun Gong practitioners persecuted to death. The Chinese citizens are deprived of the right to know the truth in China. We only want the Chinese people in China to understand Falun Gong, so that the persecution can be ended as soon as possible..." Meanwhile, they were humbled and fell silent.
Our field of righteousness and peace restrained all the people at the scene. The people from the Embassy did not say anything more. When the first group of Chinese people came out of Customs, the working staff who stood in front of us to block us said, "Look. Everybody has come out. Let's go." Soon, they disappeared from sight. The policemen who had been called by the Embassy walked around us. They also left, as they did not see anything that was wrong.
There were acrobats, dancers and singers, models, and actors. Their eyes went straight to our boards, especially those of the children. Their innocent faces fixed their pure eyes on our boards, and read silently, "Falun Dafa is Great!"
We also saw one anchorwoman who had especially slandered Falun Gong when working for Chinese Central TV. When we raised the sign "Falun Dafa Is Good" high in front of her, she lowered her head and quickly walked away.
Under Teacher's compassionate protection, we successfully clarified the truth at the airport during those days. Dafa practitioners' righteous and peaceful behavior left a deep impression on everyone.
